    Smile Speed up your slow connection using my tips.

    Are you annoyed of Slow Dial-up Connections? Feeling frustrated during your request of Web page is taking time? It’s very time wasting in case of sending and receiving of mails and files. So here are some tips to follow and get rid of all problems, increase your browsing experience, productivity and speed.

    1.Compress while sending multiple files.
    In order to send more than one file via e-mail use compression utility like 7-Zip, WinZip, WinRar etc so that it takes less space in your and recipients mailbox.

    2.Turn off graphics in IE.
    Graphics enriches the Web Page looks but it too takes more time in loading so can be turned off for faster surfing. It can be disabled as follows:
    •Open Internet Options either from Start Search (in Vista or Seven) or via Tools > Internet Options.
    •Go to Advanced Tab.
    •Scroll down to Multimedia section and uncheck the under given boxes.
    •Finally Click on Apply.



    3.Use distribution list for sending files.
    To send e-mails to more than one recipients rather than listing each recipient separately use distribution list so that messages are sent efficiently and faster.

    4.Use ‘Cached Exchange Mode’ in Outlook while you are offline.
    With the help of ‘Cached Exchange Mode’ quick access of your mailbox is possible even if connection is lost while working. The copy of the mailbox gets stored in hard drive and is regularly updated with mail server provided that you are using Microsoft Exchange Server e-mail account.

    5.Simple e-mail signatures, reduced e-mail size.
    Instead of using images and other kind of graphics in the e-mail signatures which takes time while sending messages create text based distinctive e-mail signatures with combination of colors, fonts and type sizes. Such e-mail signature looks professional and is quicker to transmit and receive.

    6.Save Web Pages to local hard drive and browse offline.
    Web Pages which are in often use should be saved to computer so that its reference can be taken whenever needed even if connection to network is lost or connection is slow. Saving a Web Page is very easy; simply click on Save As from File Menu of Internet Explorer.
    In Save As dialog box, select Webpage Complete in the Save as type: drop down menu.
    And then Click on OK.

    7.Increase your cache to load Web Pages faster.
    Temporary Internet files cache plays an important role in Browsing as some images will get cached on your computer and when the Web Page is revisited it will take less time to open.
    Increase the size of cache as follows:
    •Open Internet Options either from Start Search (in Vista or Seven) or via Tools > Internet Options in Internet Explorer.
    •In IE 6: On General tab, click on Settings in Temporary Internet files section.
    In IE 7 or later: Click on Settings in Browsing History section.
    •In ‘Check for newer versions of stored pages:’ click the Automatically radio button.
    •In Disk Space to use set its value to 250 MB.
    •Click on OK.

    Welcome aboard sophieking

    If I were you I would disable unnecessary start up entries with

    StartUp Lite

    Malwarebytes.org

    Freeware and standalone


    I would also remove all crapware which comes with some personal computers running OEM OS with

    Decrapfiler, free for personal use and stand alone too

    Application List | The PC Decrapifier

    http://www.pcdecrapifier.com/download


    I wouldn't use any registry cleaner except for

    Macecraft PowerTools lite wich is completely free

    PowerTools Lite - Freeware Windows Cleaner & Error Fixer | Macecraft Software

    I would run a full MalwareBytes' Antimalware scan too, some times System and surfing experience may be slowed down by spyware

    and please be aware of rogue registry cleaner: they are very dangerous as they are malware.
