“Slow Internet connection” this is the phrase often Googled on the Internet. You might have tried it; I don’t remember how frequent I have done it. Some will go for Microsoft Support and other will prefer to use the Microsoft fix it, if the case is with the Internet Explorer.
No matter which is the Internet service provider, and what plan you have opted for, there are times when things will go beyond your control, leaving you restless. Let’s learn what exactly goes wrong, and discover how to get the most from your Internet connection.
Using the built-in Windows tools i.e. Internet Connections Troubleshooter is the best, if you don’t know much about computing, click “Start” and in the search box, type “troubleshooter”, and then click “Troubleshooting”, and under “Network and Internet”, click “Connect to the Internet”.
Internet performance can also be hampered with computer viruses that can end up the system resources by multiplying at a fast rate. If you are getting frequent error messages regarding security then this is the time to act rather than getting betrayed. Download Microsoft Security Essentials or Windows Defender to scan and remove uninvited guests from your machine. However, if you have an updated security software installed on the system, then make use of it.
Add-ons, also known as ActiveX controls, browser extensions, browser helper objects, or toolbars, want the share of system resources; disabling those can accelerate the speed to some extent.You can do it as:
- Start> All Programs>Accessories>System Tools> Internet Explorer (No Add-ons).
Microsoft Help can instruct you to upgrade your browser and implement privacy and security features, such as ActiveX Filtering, Domain highlighting, Smart Screen Filter, Cross site scripting (XSS) filter, and more to let your go safe online.
