Customer Question

my mac is running very very slowly. My server is cox cable and is OK because my husbands computer is just fine. I've done a permission repair, but am running out of ideas. I'm trying to do taxes and every website I try to load takes forever!

I just quit firefox, in case that helps.

Let's create a new internet profile.

Go to System Preferences in your Apple menu.

Click on Network and select Assist Me...

Then click on Assistant... and follow the prompts, this will create a new location and new settings for your connection.
