Solved why is my hotmail slow

August 13, 2011 at 15:08:02
Specs: Windows XP
I managed to clear a BlasterWorm(?) virus from my PC a couple of weeks ago and have run the MSN Full Scan a couple of times since to confirm that there are no viruses but my Hotmail account has not been right since the virus. It is slow and I have to wait a while for what I have typed to show up on the screen. Any ideas please?

✔ Best Answer
It still points to an infection problem, no program is 100% perfect, run at least 3 of these & then use ATF.

Run the following free, online virus scans.
Using ESET's Online Scanner

PPWL, what browser are you using? Maybe try an alternate browser to see if that speeds things up or not.
