And your comment that a slow computer is caused by low ram 90% of the time is simply nonsense.

Agreed, especially since the OP stated he has 4gb of RAM in the first post, which i thought to be plenty.

You still have not stated that you have run an anti-virus or anti-spyware scan yet, CCleaner and the .....erm....'registry mechanic' will not find viruses

    Should I make a windows repair and restore the system? A friend recommended me to do so and that the simplest solution ..
    Is this repair could delete files from my computer's system? It's absolutely safe?

      Use system restore.

        The 4gb Ram listed and the amout of RAM available is not the same. Most of the RAM might be used by a VIrus or othe regular programs.

        You have been asked twice if you have done a virus scan and you have not answered. We have also said, do not System restore until a last resort. If you choose not to follow this advice then its up to you, but before you do a System Restore please read this. Particularly The Reality paragraph.

        In reality, System Restore can create copies of the infected files. And some viruses may be capable of infecting the restore volume as well as the actual system files. When a person cleans their computer using an anti-virus, then uses System Restore, they may inadvertently re-infect the computer. Or if they use System Restore as a means of removal, either the restore will fail (if the anti-virus cleans the virus out during the restore process) or the restore will replace the file with an infected version.

        There is nothing wrong based on your 1st post about the system, only the slow internet connection. Unless you are infected, making a repair will most likely not solve the problem.

        What type of Network card is installed? Does your status icon shows that you are connected?
        1. Run the Network troubleshooter for your Network card for your Desktop.
        2. In your Control Panel, Network Connections, Right-click Network Card/Properties/General Tab and highlight TCP/IP click Properties. Are Obtain IP address and DNS server dotted? Check Also Alternate configuration tab if
        Automatic Private Address is default.
        3. Also for your IE8 Browser. Go to Tools/Internet options/Connections/LAN settings, is automatically detect settings in default?
        4. On your Device Manager, check the status of your Network card if it states that it is working properly.
        5. You could also try opening browser(IE8) without add-ons. Right-click IE8 icon on desktop and choose Start without add-ons.

        No further feedback from Yizhazi, the original poster?  Reddevilggg seems to suggest a software problem? Jason hardware? Is it software or hardware? A slow connection or a slow computer?  I still would  guess system restore might help?  System Restore cannot hurt?

        OP does nothing.

        Your neglecting the fact that if he is in fact infected and he runs a system restore he then infects his restore points which moves him further away from a resolution...

            You may have ESET NOD 32 and Smart Security(Firewall) installed that cause temporary or slow connection. Try disabling ESET Smart Security and use the Windows Firewall instead.

            I've cleaned the thread of the unneeded nonsense and taken other steps to help avoid further sidetracking.

              I also had this problem and the i phoned up my broadband team e.g whoever you are connected to. You can just call them up and see what's wrong. Also, the main problem is the more electrical devices you are near the slower the connection x

              Restart computer in Safe Mode with Networking, go back to http://www.speedtest.net/ and let us know, what the numbers are.
              If you have same issue, you may need new ethernet card.
