can someone give me some advise about lag, i recently in_stalled the norton anti virus onto my pc which then made my pc run slow, so on friday of last week {6th july} i un in_stalled it and my pc run really well, when on funkypool i had no lag then all of a sudden on sunday i came onto f/pool and the lag was unreal im ok when browsing but when i go to enter game i have problems, during games i hardly play a shot because of the interference.
since un in_stalling nortong i have done nothing else to my pc so why have i got really bad lag all of a sudden ?

Ok, un-installing Norton was a good move, but not installing something else (assuming you didn't) was a bad one!

My reccomendation would be to install AVG antivirus (see this thread http://www.funkypool.com/viewTopic.do?topicid=10520 )

Do a full system scan and see what happens. I fyou're still having problems then get back to us. We'll sort it in no time

What sort of connection are you on?

We are also having reports of problems with a macdonalds advert, did you notice if this was being displayed when you had your problems?

You can get the best ad/spy/malware program of all free from microsoft, microsoft defender.

You do have to let AVG update after installing.

I'm assuming you are on a dialup connection?

Should have mentioned it before but you are sure you're not running any kind of P2P filesharing software, or MSN or iTunes on either your pc or any other on your network (if you have one)?

you cant get microsofr defender now has been dis-continued, im on broadband not dial up, the onlyy thing which runs with my pc is whilest for my daughters lappy but that should make no difference as it comes from the modem.
everything is ok on pc untill i enter game on funkypool then the interference starts
