When I connect to the net XP slows right down.

I have checked the performance and the CPU meter is always above 95%. When I disconnect the system returns to normal speed.

Anyone have any sugestions?

Thanks

First, welcome to the forums! :)

What is you connection? 56k, cable, dsl, what? Computer specs? Throw us some breadcrumbs at least.

I had that problem with a USB modem before I got broadband. Probably the drivers.

Sorry about that Zedric....

System specs are:

PIII 500
256MB ram
XP PRO
56k Dial up ( USB Swann)

I have not had this problem before. I have had the modem for nearly a year with the same drivers.

The problem started about 4 days ago.

No new software or hardware has been install durring this time.

Yes, I am using the most current driver for the modem and have been for a while now.

Long shot: Maybe you've "acquired" some software by mistake? Spyware that is. Download Ad-Aware form Lavasoft and check. Since the modem has been working ok before it shouldn't be the drives. But you can update them anyway.
