Internet speed very slow after installng windows 10

Posted

Hi, Having accepted Microsoft's free upgrade to windows 10 from Windows 7 ultimate, I find my Virgin internet is running well below its previous speed. I have updated my Firefox browser to no effect. Any thoughts would be welcome. Would deleting and reinstalling Firefox be worth trying?
