    Web slow down

    Problem for a friend at Liverpool Uni

    Win7 laptop: can connect with teamviewer quite fast. When she goes onto the web, national rail or iPlayer the machine freezes for a few (minutes) seconds now (12 seconds). This is the same with IE (9); Chrome and Firefox.

    I did a big clearout the other week for the same problem, and she said it was working fine afterwards. A couple of malware items found and removed. Removed MSSE and installed Avast Free. Bonjour service disabled. Re-installed network card drivers.

    Anyone have any suggestions please??

    Yes it is thanks irsprint84

    Just trying the registry settings fix from here: Solution: C300 Disk Freeze-ups in Windows 7 solved... - Crucial Community

    It didn't find the updated driver itself, and the updated one linked on that page is dead <edit> ah s'ok downloaded v10.6

    If this doesn't work it's change the bios setting to ATA

    No joy

    The bios is a pheonix and options for SATA = none/ IDE mode/ AHCI ...only AHCI works.

    Only thing I didn't try was updating the BIOS which I wasn't wanting to do over the phone. I've asked my friend to call Dell (who quoted 200 to remove a virus) and tell them that it's an ioStor Event ID 9 error and get them to fix it.
