Got a strange one for you!

    I have three PCs on my LAN, all running Win XP

    I noticed that last night, I could only d/l at 30-50kB/s on my 2Mb
    ADSL line (242 kB/s max).

    Further testing shows that the other PCs are unaffected as is another
    Win XP partition on my main PC.

    ON the affected partition I have scanned for ad aware, repaired my
    network connection, scanned for viruses, and restored to a couple of
    days ago without effect.

    No strange processes are running that I can see.

    I'm stumped. Something is wrong on this partition, which only happened
    last night as all was well before.

    Any ideas?

    TIA.

    Problem solved. I am/was running Protowall. It is IP blocking
    software. Works okay for a while, but the slows down the Internet on
    the PC that it is installed on.
