Nobody feels good about a slow internet connection. Usually, users think of taking a technician’s help in getting rid of this problem. I would suggest you to try your hands, before calling for a help and spend a huge fortune for it. Let us cite few things that you can do and save some money in your pocket.
Run an antivirus scan. There are chances that your antivirus software will remove the trouble making agents sitting in your computer.
Unplug the modem and plug it back. Resetting the modem may solve this problem.
System restore is another great solution. This will bring the system back from the changes that would have happened and causing the slow performance of the internet.
Remove the temporary files from your system frequently, which otherwise could be the cause of the slow internet. Also, have some space free in your hard disk.
If nothing seems to solve this problem, then check with the internet service provider and make sure that nothing is wrong at that end.
