  1. Hi everyone,

    I know this issue is getting really old but lately i've been having problems connection to the internet. First of all it does say that i'm connected but when i go on firefox it says problem with server. Also computer lags every few seconds and in the task manager system idle process is 95-99(which is apparently normal from what i've seen). I think something is wrong with my computer, is there some kind of virus im not detecting? Please help. (I have Windows XP Professional Service pack 2)
