I have had extremely slow internet (IE) response for probably six months now, and I have a cable connection. Don't know for sure, but it sure seems like Security Center has something to do with it.
Have you discovered anything?
No joy. I've found many general complaints about SC slowing things down overall...but no FAQ on adjusting settings to tweak for slow performance other than generic suggestions to turn this or that feature off to see what happens. In my case, it seems particularly slow when browsing pages that have lots of varied content such as ads, banners, etc. on top of the main material I want. It's as if SC leisurely studies each item forever during which the PC is frozen for 10-15 sec. Then the PC comes back to life and the page loads. With previous Suite, a page would start loading right away (at dialup speeds) and I could instantly click to browse elsewhere if not what I'm looking for. Or I could click to another windows application while a page loads.
With our cable connection, we can usually struggle through most things, but they take a lot longer than they should. But, I can't even play a youtube video any more, which was no problem about 6 months ago.
Add me to the list of frustrated users. McAfee is provided free of charge to customers of Cox cable. I downloaded about 3 months ago and ever since, internet browsing is painfully slow. I thought it was a memory problem so I went out and bought more RAM. That didn't work so my son told me to use Mozilla instead. I did, but to no avail. I was on the forums this morning looking for solutions, but it sounds like slow browsing is a problem that affects many users. If someone has a solution, I will be very interested in hearing about it.
