Ok, I've had dialup before. I've had the basic cable internet, but now i have the direct service link (DSL) from Bellsouth. My system recently was infected by a spyware known as "Adssite" and many trojans, all stemming from a Browser Helper Object, or BHO installed by a Chinese website... I'll never do that again! But it made my internet connection almost null and void. In the HPFF Chatroom, I would type my entire sentence, press enter, and about 10 seconds later it would flash in the input box, and 5 seconds after that it would appear in the chat. Needless to say I was "lagged". BUT I've got it all back to normal now (thanks to SuperAntiSpyware's latest update!), and I've just tested my internet speed. How does your internet speed compare? I have not used any "Optimizers" or anything like that. I would like to get as many replies as I can, so call it a competition if you like. Go here ( http://www.speedtest.net/ ) to take the test, It even lets you "one click copy" for posting on a forum Here's mine: Alright, Post 'em up!
