    Hi - well it got me on line but still raggy - AVG anti virus still says server unreachable. I will try your other suggestions --thanks again. It did update the definitions deal for the program. I guess I just won't have newer features. NBD. I am going to try seamonkey -- love the name!

    - - - Updated - - -

    I think that we solved getting me online but nothing really seems to work anyway. If I try to go to ccleaner site, fails. If I try to update avg program, fails. I am not bothered by the avg thing but would like ccleaner to get updated. It is just choking on itself. If I look at cpu usage - 100% so that's probably the reason everything is slow but nonetheless, can't get programs to update. Any thoughts?

    Well there's your problem - older PCs don't do so well with several background processes that choke your CPU. I don't use any AV, they are resource hogs. CCleaner? Meh, another resource hog. I've had PCs like yours that would lock up completely for a few minutes (not even CTRL-ALT-DELETE) because of so many background programs. My thoughts? Clean install time, it'll bring new life to that old PC.
