    I like to empty temp internet files daily. I do this by
    right click start, choose "explore", click on temp
    internet files, then delete away. Since going DSL, it
    freezes alot and gives a screen"temp internet files not
    responding. I end up closing down and restarting.
    Complete system is slowing down to below dial up speed.
    Any ideas?

  2. Doris;
    What happens if you use Disk Cleanup to delete those files?

    Also try these:
    Run an updated virus scan.
    Or Scan for Viruses online:

    Run Disk Cleanup checking all boxes except "Compress old files"
    Run Defrag.
    If you have file sharing software such as Kazaa, disable it.
    Check this link:

    Run Ad-Aware (free version) or Spybot to check for spyware:

    Or
