honestly, no idea. one of the teachers over at my school told me to turn my former laptop on in safemode and run windows defender once. i was using internet explorer (i dont really like chrome layout, and firefox is slow for me..) and for some reason tons of tabs kept opening (blank ones) as soon as i started the IE program. so i guess defender is a bit of both? im not sure.
yeah my connection sucks bad. to get a youtube video to load it can take anywhere from 2-3x longer than the video on a bad day and maybe 1 and quarter on a better day. before (like 3-4 ago and beyond) videos would buffer as soon as i load and i wouldnt have to pause and wait for load times ie a 10 minute video would load completely in ~ 3 minutes or less..and then simple webpages (ie a forum thats mostly text buttons, the giant banner to get to the homepage and an ad or 2) will take can take like 2 minutes to load, and thats not even counting on clicking on a thread yet.
i THINK i know whats wrong, but it may just be coincidence and either way i have no idea how to fix the problem. recently (few days ago) my parents had to get new phones because the old phones (land lines) died. could that somehow be the problem with the phone jacks or something?
