Internet Lagging

I'm using Windows XP, Internet Explorer 6.0.

Lately, my broadband connection seems to be lagging more and more often. It will have periods where it will be quick but then will start to be ridiculously slow.

My virus scan hasn't showed anything, and have got rid of any spyware that AdAware came up with.

I've got HijackThis on my computer but wouldn't be sure what to remove from the results.

Does anyone have any ideas?

this could be numerous things.
may be an issue with the line your adsl is on...could be fluctuating..
or internet explorer could be the issue,
have you tried reseting the internet explorer settings back to default....
does your internet come from a router or standard adsl modem......you may want to check the logs on the router for anything obvious...
you can copy n paste the hijack this log into the correct forum for us to take a look at.
