Hi,

I've got a big problem with my PC, usually I'm a mac user so I'm not too sure what to do.

My mac and PC both share a 3com router and are both wired atm, I can download/browse on the mac without any problems, downloading and uploading on the PC is at full speed but any browser I use IE, firefox, IE7, opera it's as slow as dial-up loading one page!
It's definitely not an internet thing as I can even access my router via the PC without it being super slow.
I've ran tests for spyware and viruses and they've come back negative.

any ideas?

I was using ethernet, but today I upgraded to wireless to see if it were a cable problem....

but alas no joy.
