Hello,

I have just had broadband installed today, it is 256kb (5 times faster than dial-up). Anyway internet pages are loading quickly enough, but i am trying to download songs and it seems to be taking ages. it should take 2mins but its taking bout 15mins. I think i know what is wrong tho. I dont have proper usb 2.0 drivers for windows 98, so the usb runs on 1.1 therefore i think this may be the problem.Any help anyone?

This has nothing to do with USB 1.1 or USB 2.
It's the server on the other end that's not supplying you with songs at the desired speed.
Nothing to worry about at all.

I suggest you try downloading Hijack This from http://aumha.org/downloads/hijackthis.exe and scan your computer with it.

Extract the file, from the zip archive, to a permanent folder on your hard drive. My preference is to create a new folder in the root of my C: drive, e.g. C:\HJT
Then create a new thread in Security and Viruses Forum
