    Could it be my connection or could it be something more serious?

    This happened today, right after I had transferred some files from my laptop to an external hard-drive. Could my laptop be inflicted by bugs?

    No, there are likely no insects in your laptop.

    Could you be a bit more specific? What is slow? Your system? Your internet?

    I would say mostly my connection.

    It takes forever to reload this page. No, I am not downloading anything, which could slow down my download speed.


    what would you suggest? Should I check my speed? where can I do that?

    I would like to add that I hear this "ushhhhhhhh" sound on AIM. After each message there is the "ushhhhh" sound that follows. Weird. It doesn't go through smooth like before.

    You can test it at http://www.speedtest.net

    You might want to unplug your router/modem to reset it. I had no internet earlier today and had to reset everything.

    Also, click the apple logo in upper left corner, then about this mac, then more info button from there. Click on network and post your DNS server addresses to see if you might be having DNS issues.

    Ouch, didn't notice that. Yeah, that is pretty dire. Your ISP is definitely the place to start.

    Personally I would switch off the router for a minute first. If that doesn't work, then I would call.

    We all know it's going to be their first suggestion anyway
