I am pretty computer savvy, but I am getting kicked here. We had a power sag due to lightning yesterday. I couldn't get on the intarweb for a while and now things are slow, intermittently. I had to reset the modem to get it to operate. Some pages load normally, but most will load partially (slowly) or just the header. I have had a similar problem about every 3 months. It works very well and then does this same thing. This time it appears tied to this electrical power event. I have no spy ware, I have system restored to a time point before this event. My system is very clean. When I call Cox, they always want to come in my house, although I suspect it is a problem with their equipment. They will do absolutely nothing until they dispatch a tech. If there is a known problem in the area they will never admit it. Task manager shows nothing is going on when page loading seems to stall. Help, please. Any ideas? Anyone have similar experience?
