The Internet was starting to slow down on my PC until one day it finally quit working.  I had installed Diskeeper 2007 and ran a complete degrag which is what I thought finally did it in.  I decided to reload so I put the XP cd in and deleted all partitions on the drive, then created 2 new partitions.  I installed XP and nothing else, but accessing the Internet is still slow.  Opening other applications such as Outlook Express are not slow.  Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.  THanks!
