I'm on a 1.5Mbps broadband link. I've been noticing a major degredation of internet speed when on TB. To edit some of my own posts it often takes minutes to open the editor's GUI!! I figured since it's a huge forum in the US, serving large amounts of information to large numbers of users, and the rest of my internet surfing was generally OK, it was to do with the WAN and/or TB server infrastructure. But no! I checked and found my Ad-Aware was disabled so I got the new version, scanned my system and found hundreds of Data Miners in my system!!!! Since quarantining and deleting them TB is like a rocket and the rest of the internet quicker than it ever was on broadband!! So everyone, please check up how much spyware is on your PC - I just worked out that most of my bandwidth was dedicated to this crap, and on a 20Gb per month capped plan, that sux a lot!!
