DSL tests ok, cpu speed ok, very slow page loads - all websites. [Moved]

Q: DSL tests ok, cpu speed ok, very slow page loads - all websites. [Moved]

I just posted this in the Windows 2000/ME section by accident.....

From the beginning:

I visited a website that gave me a virus that was picked up by my Avast & Malwarebytes. Both programs deleted the bad files. The next time I started the computer, my internet connection became almost unusable due to it's slowness. Scans of the system turned up nothing.

I unplugged the Cat-5 cable from my DSL modem, connected a USB cable to the usb port on the modem, & restarted. My connection was back to normal for a few days, until my wife had some issue & she restarted the computer. After that, I'm back to maddening slowness!

Also, when I do a search on Google, I get redirected when I click on any results to "results.google.com". I also cannot download ANYTHING from Microsoft -- when I try it says "not available on this server"

This has all the makings of a virus, but it's not showing up on anything. I visted Pc Pitstop & paid $30 for Optimizer 3, which did nothing. I just completed a 2+ hour scan in safe mode with Avast, which again turned up nothing. All DSL performance scans turn up normal.

I called Verizon & they used gotoassist to check out my computer. They said my connection is actually quicker than what I am paying for, but you wouldn't know that after counting to 10 slowly before seeing any websites -- including this one.

I downloaded & ran Combofix at the recommendation of someone on another forum, but I had to shut the computer down & lost the results -- I can run again if need be.

Also, after a recent restart, I lost my POP3 settings for Outlook Express mysteriously & was unable to send/receive mail until I re-entered all that information that has been there for years. Now I have lost all my shortcuts next to the start button on the lower toolbar.

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help!

Preferred Solution: DSL tests ok, cpu speed ok, very slow page loads - all websites. [Moved]

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Lenovo T61P
Win 7
Wireless Connection (Router Linksys WRT54G2)
I installed Comodo's Firewall and during installation I accepted to install the Secure DNS too. Afterward I noticed my web-pages loaded slower than usual. They weren't extremely slow but definitely slower than what I've been accustomed. I tried some OPENDNS servers and others to see if it made any difference but it didn't. I also went to my router's setup page(( I could manually add the previously mentioned DNS servers. I finally decided to revert back to my old DNS list. To disable using the Comodo DNS servers I did the following:

Wireless Network Connection Properties-> Internet Protocol Ver 4 (TCP/IPv4)-> Properties -> Select "Obtain DNS server address automatically"

I also went into to my router's setup page ( to set my DNS list to zeros so that I can get back my default ISP's DNS servers (,186,187). However, website loading is still sluggish.

I thought the issue might just be a temporary hiccup from my ISP but my roommate doesn't have these issues. We tried a speed test at dslreports.com and the results were weird. On my laptop the results were 8500+ Kb/s with a 279ms latency. I was 10 ft away from my router. His results were 3000+Kb/s with a 11ms latency and he was 30 ft away from the router. Is the latency a major issue?

Any ideas or suggestions? Thank you.

A:Fast Internet Speed - Slow Page Loads

Problem solved. I uninstalled Comodo's firewall and presto everything is back to normal. Duuuuh ... Gonna stick to Win 7's built-in firewall to work along side my router's.

(running winXP SP3)

Ok, so IE7 and FireFox will not load pages. Chrome works but is slow as molasses. I have run tons and tons of spyware/malware scans and problem is still happening.

Note: Spybot S&D will not install. When it tries to download the info from the Spybot server it crashes saying it cannot connect to the server.

I ran SDFix and it didnt find anything. Or if it did, it did not fix it.

I have been trying to fix this thing for two weeks! Any help is appreciated!

Recently, I reinstalled my Netgear wna3100 driver. Ever since then, I've been experiencing problems with high pings in games where I normally never had problems with. Pages load slowly even just the home page of Google.

I've attached my ipconfig picture. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


A:High download speed and signal, high ping in games, slow page loads

To Disable Selective Suspend:

open the control panel
go to power options (you may have to set view to small icons)
click change plan settings
in the window that opens:
click change plan settings
click change advanced power settings, expand usb and ensure usb selective suspend is disabled.

I would also (while the device is plugged in)
go into the control panel - system - device manager - click the properties for it and make sure it's set to always on there as well.
I don't think the ipconfig can tell us much here since it's a data rate problem of some sort and not a actual connection problem from the sound of it.

The two things I mention above will hopefully keep your system from putting the device in 'low power mode' which may , or may not help your current problem.

I'm also curious if your system has recently slowed down in any other ways?

Since I have installed W 7 my speed test results from DSL Reports are 1.5 Mbs. With XP they were just under 3 Mbs. I have tweaked 7 for high performance and low visual. Could it be because I only have 2 gigs of memory? It really doesn't seem any slower. In fact, it seems to run faster for the most part. Any ideas on this one? Thanks, John

Hello all,
I have had various speed tests run on my Toshiba L875 with 4 gigs of Ram and a 640 GB hard drive. The speed tests are usually in the 75/35 range but even with Verizon FIOS they have been slow (upload speed has been). Speedtest.net won't even hardly register (getting like 40 over 3 to 5 for the download). I ran Malwarebytes last night and there were no infections but the system still is slow according to FIOS' speed test. I'm at a loss and need an option to figure out why this is occurring. Thanks for all you guys do.

PS: Will run another Malwarebytes scan now.


A:Speed tests very slow/possible infection?

I ran a malwarebytes scan sand no infections were found.

Think that really concerns me is http://www.speedtest.net/result/2438595996.png.

I've been having this problem for 3 days now. I have a 5Mbps downstream 768kbps upstream dsl connection and noticed that webpages were opening noticeably slower and streaming video took ages to load. All speed tests I run show that I get around 300-400 kbps downstream even though my upstream is normal at around 600 kbps.
I know it is not my computer or browser since I've tried the tests on other computers in my house. I contacted my isp and they tested my phone line and said it was ok. They even changed the modem but it didn't help. I tried to connect using my isp's modem with router functionality and also as a bridge with my own router but I get the same results. The problem started happening overnight without any changes to any configuration in my home computers or the network. Today I noticed that I get much higher speeds (almost full bandwidth) when downloading torrents but as I said videos take forever to load and all speedtests show a very low downstream speed.
Anybody know what could be causing this? I suspect that it is a problem with my isp (perhaps with port 80?) but they say that everything shows up as normal on their side.

A:Torrents fast speed tests slow

DSL has issues with speed. I use to have 1.5mbps, then 3mbps and 5mbps. I even bypass the way DSL works in the home. You can do the same but take some time to do. Most you can get out of that is a much stronger signal. You tap into the main phone line that comes in like through a basement before it hits the phone. I use CAT5e with a phone jack box ran that to another phone jack box with a modular connector. That connector would use ultra phone line cable based on Cat 5e but for phone data. That would go to your DSL modem. It worked well. Now that I am cable modem I'll never go back to DSL.

Hello - recently web browsing using Firefox (v29.0) has become very slow/choppy/laggy.
I've performed speed tests with my ISP and I am consitently at 10mpbs down and 3mps up, which are the expected rates.
This appears to be specifically an issue with web browsing with Firefox. 
I used Avast 2014 (free) as my antivirus and all weekly scans find no viruses.  I've also scanne my computer using Malwarebytes (lates version) and nothing has been found.
I'm a bit puzzle by this as not much has changed on this computer in the past few months.  I'm not sure if this could be a virus/spyware/malware issue or just poor firefox performance more recent revisions of the browser.
Any help that can be provided would be greatly appreciated.

I am running 4 PCs (one hardwired, the other 3 wireless) from a Linksys BEFW11S4 router connected to a cable modem. All PCs, except one, load web pages quickly and rarely bog down.

My Dell 9300 Inspiron with XP Pro using Firefox or IE7 runs like molasses. Pages sometimes take forever to load. This often occurs when the other three PCs are zipping along just fine, as well as when they are all turned off and the Dell is the only machine using the router.

The Dell 9300 is running Norton 2007 and I run AdAware and Spybot weekly. I also clean and defrag the disc regularly.

On occasion, I have used the Repair function to renew the IP address on my Dell network connection and it seems to help, but I think it's imaginary. I also reset my modem regularly, which is silly because the other PCs are running fine. The three laptops are in the same room, so distance from the router is not an issue.

I'd appreciate some advice regarding settings to check or utilities that may help me. I really don't want to call Dell tech support (ugh) unless I absolutely have to.

Thank you very much

My laptop is very slow, web browsing takes forever, opening word, booting up etc.

I have Ccleaner, i've ran spybot, and malware bytes, windows registry repair, and have defragged. There is 71% free space and there's barely anything on the laptop.

Things stop responding a lot and i have to wait for them.

Seems odd with so much free space. (defrag says 71% free)


A:Speed very slow but loads of disk space left

Don't use windows registry repair or any Registry Cleaners. It's possible that's what caused your problem. When using CCleaner only clean, don't repair. Might pay to do a System Restore prior to the problem or if you have the OS disc, a Repair Install.

Hello all

Want to begin by thanking everyone (esp flavalee) who helped resolve my issues with the CPU topping out at 100% for minutes on end. Still happens on IE (even after I added 512 of ram), but Chrome runs well...when it runs, which is why I'm back.

On a seemingly random basis, page load requests are greeted with the little Chrome spiral turning slowly ccw while I stare at a white screen. In many cases the spiral flips to the quick cw and the page loads, but too often, when it does flip, the symbol just sits there, spinning quickly cw and taunting me...spinning and taunting me...

Invariably, there is a message in the lower left of the screen that says: waiting for... Often, waiting for ad.something.com

Was going to go the site search route, but suspect "slow page loads" as a term might result in about a half million hits.

Numerous system scans with many apps (Malwarebytes, Glary, etc.) come up clean.

What 411 would be needed to help figure this out?

A:Extremely slow internet, page loads

... and both take forever to load.Click to expand...

Do you mean they take "forever" to launch--to first make an appearance when you double click on the appropriate shortcut? Or do you mean they take a long time to load each web page you access?

If the latter make sure you have the latest network driver; if it is an internal network adapter the driver should be from your PC manufacturer's web site. Ethernet or wireless?

Hi -Thanks in advance for any guidance.

Hey guys, I just recently had this problem. Whenever I browse any websites, the pages load so slowly. There's about 10 seconds of a blank page before the page loads quickly. After that, every page that is on that website loads fast. For example it takes a long time to load this site initially but once I do, the rest of the links on here are snappy. It's like this for every website I go to. I thought it might be viruses/spyware but tests came clean. The odd thing is I'm downloading at my normal speed 320 KB/s. I tried this on three of my OS's which are on the same computer, Windows 2000, XP, and Vista and same result. I connect my modem to a wifi router and connect using wifi and same result. Any help is greatly appreciated. I'm using the latest Firefox.

Hello 1st time poster with a question-
XPS8700 3.60 gigahertz Intel Core I7-4790, windows 8.1, 32 megabytes of ram, A11 BIOS
The problem encountered was extremely slow screen loads,some programs would time out, other screens took forever to come up. The spinning icon was very slow. This happened the first time I started up the computer and Dell tech support had me run the F12 diagnostics, all items passed, so he had me update the BIOS from A10 to A11 and the problem was resolved. This was a year and a half ago.
The same problem happened 2 nights ago. I first ran virus scan and malware scan. All of them reported no issue. I had Verizon reset my FIOS connection and check my Internet-no issue on their end..
I was finally able to resolve the issue the next morning by running the F12 diagnostics,the long version, took about 3 hours or so and now the computer is back to normal. Diagnostics were clean, no issues reported and everything passed.
I have a program that gives a complete profile of my computer-The Belarc Advisor- I ran it while the problem was present and my processor shows a speed of 57.65 gigahertz, not 3.60 gigahertz.
I reran the Belarc Advisor after the problem was resolved and now we are back to normal, 3.60 gigahertz.
Has anybody every encountered this issue or seen the processor speed change so dramatically and then return to normal?

A:Extremely slow screen loads and extreme change in processor speed

Unless you mis-typed it, something was wrong with what Belarc found because there's no way a CPU could run at 57.65 GIGA-Hz.
Back up your personal files on external media ASAP, in case your hard drive is about to fail....

I've been having trouble loading Web pages on my netbook the last week or so. When I type in an address, the page will start to load. But then it crawls along for 10-15 sec until the tabs show the page is ready. Navigating within a site the load time won't be quite as slow, but if I click an external link the sluggish load returns. The problem happens on both wired and wireless connections. My connection is100Mbps through ATT Uverse. Other computers don't have trouble with speed though. So there must be an issue in my system.

At first, I wondered if it might be a virus; so, I checked it out at Malwarebytes. The only things they found was a possible Trojan host file, which we deleted. I uninstalled AVG Antivirus and Spybot S&D and replaced them with MS Security Essentials to save on program memory. Then I updated the LAN and wireless network drivers. I tried updating the graphics driver too. However, none of it made any difference

I'm at the end of my rope in solving out the problem. I looked at some other posts and tried the suggestions. They didn't help much though .

If someone could please help me figure out a solution, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Hello all:

I got hit with a browser hijacker I think. I was being redirected to gethotresults.com. I think I have been able to remove that malware, but I am noticing now random audio ads play in the background, and my browser loads pages slowly (compared to a similar build Windows 7 PC that is not affected by any virus. Also, when shutting down the affected PC after attempting to identify/clean, I got an unexpected shutdown bluescreen. I have captured the text of this event if you need it. The affected PC is Windows 7 64-bit.

2) Re-installed both browsers.
3) I ran Malwarebytes Anti-Malware program.

I have a AMD Athlon 3800+ 2.4 ghz i think, with an Asus M2ne motherboard, a 120 gig hard drive with 20gigs free, and a gig of ram. I'm running windows XP. The problem I have is my computer, after booting with relatively good speed, slows down incredibly. It takes about 20 minutes for my computer to load up all it's startup programs and about 10 minutes to open most programs. Took more than 40 for Warcraft III to open, and didn't even finish opening, I just reset my computer in frustration. I've run Ad-aware scan, Spybot search and destroy, done a ram check and a few other micellaneous fixes and none of them have helped. Currently I'm doing a Norton Full System scan, and so far it's taken 18 hours and is still not complete. I defragged my drive only last week before these problems arose, as well as run a scan disk and clean up. I have no idea what the problem is and I'm nearing my wits end. Any help would be appreciated.

Oh also when slam alt ctrl del in frustration, it takes a couple minutes for the window to pop up, but when it does it shows Explorer.exe taking 95-99% of my processing power and 100% of my processing power being used.

Thanks in advanced, Tom.

Good day to all. I am using AT&T(sbcglobal) dsl. My plan is for the speed of 1mb and under. Now, I realize I am not going to get 1mb, the speed will be under. But the tests I am running are showing speeds around or under 1/4 of a mb. All these tests were run one right after another, at 5 different times of the day, from 8am to 11pm for 3 consecutive days. I have 2 computers running XP that I ran the tests on, and there are no problems with either computer, other than the internet speed. Here are the results.

Speedtest.net: download: 0.24mbps / upload: 0.32mbps

Speakeasy.net: download: 0.24mbps / upload: 0.32mbps

McAfee Internet connection speedometer: 200kbps

CNet Bandwidth Meter: line speed 224kbps

Now, when I run my ISPs speed test AT&T Speedtest, the test shows my speed is: download: 1.58mbps / upload: 0.31mbps. I don`t understand the large difference in speeds I am getting from independent speed tests, and the speedtest from my ISP. Now if I am to believe my ISPs speedtest, they are going to try to tell me I am receiving more download speed than I am paying for. I find that very hard to believe.

Since this is the first time I have looked into this, I am kind of in the dark about how much speed is expected exactly, but 0.24 seems on the low side to me. I know I will have to contact my ISP to look indepth into this problem, and that is why I came here first. I don`t want to sound like a complete idiot when I contact them. Hopefully someone can look at my speed... Read more

I am using Win 7 Home Premium 64-bit, Firefox and Chrome. This computer acts as a server and has MS SQL Server 2008 setup on it. I normally just use MS Security Essentials and Windows Firewall for security. Approximately one month ago after participating in an short online class a variant of the ?Win 7 2012 Security? scareware showed up and was doing it?s thing. I found a guide on Bleeping Computer to get rid of it using rkill.exe and Malwarebytes to get rid of it and it seems to work. Unfortunately I unwittingly selected to try Malwarebytes 30 day trial so about 3 days ago it got uninstalled from this computer. Two days ago while browsing Reddit suddenly up pops ?Win 7 2012 Security? warnings along with problems in browser connectivity. Having had this before I take the same steps again which seems to rid me of ?Win 7 2012 Security?. However when Malwarebytes is running MS Security Essentials (yes I neglected to turn it off) finds more infections. In fact almost every time Malwarebytes runs MSE finds something new.

Some examples are: Alureon.TK, vdf.exe, Kwrd.dll, PUP.BitMiner, Sirefef.J

I let MSE get rid of them and Mal fins a few also. My internet connection seems to get worse as browser performance decreases however if I run a speed check the DSL connection is fine. Yesterday (the 8th) I made sure everything was up to date (java, flash, windows) and got rid of everything that was extraneous to speed up scans.

Over the past week I've been in the process of reinstalling programs to my computer after having to reinstall WindowsXP. Up until this past Friday everything was running smoothly, and then in the blink of an eye trying to browse web pages has become a frustrating act taking much longer than it should. When running other applications not involving going online, my computer runs completely fine. I suspect spyware is the cause because when I first began reinstalling programs I inadvertantly came across a web page that I know hit me with a load of spyware...all this happening before I reloaded my firewall and antivirus software. Eventually I installed these programs and cleaned out my computer to the point where I could work without worrying about spyware cropping up. I still suspect remnants of spyware remain on my computer which has now caused my browsing online to become a near impossibility. I am only able to ask for your assistance on this web site while running my computer in safe mode.
Sorry for being so wordy..I just wanted to be as descriptive as possible to help you out in determining the correct actions to help alleviate my problem.

I have a new HP Pavillion Slimline Model s5-1224 running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit on SP1 with Intel Pentium 2.8 Ghz processor, 6 GB Ram and and a 900 GB (800 GB free) HD. I have an external graphics card (Triton TRI-UV150) connected via USB to accomodate Dual HP 2010 Wide LCD monitors.

When the graphics card is connected to the CPU, it takes upwards of 1-2 minutes to load the homepage (Google). Without the graphics card connection, home page load is almost instantaneous.

I have uninstalled/re-installed the graphics card driver with the help of the manufacturers' tech support and the issue is still not resolved. Manufacturer states that "the driver cannot cause slow page loads" but it only happens when the card is connected to the CPU.

Please advise.

The second test was 265pc Ping. 2.20mpbs Download speed. 0.60 Upload speed.
Are these numbers good? Thanks Ray ( hope I put this in the right forum)

A:Speed tests

With the exception of ping, they are nearly the same as what I have. Ping is a measure of time it take to get a response from a server. You could try a different server for different response times. However there are numerous reasons for fluctuation ping results, which could simply be a bad day.

Many of us (me included) are concerned about how "fast" our ISP (Internet Service Provider) is. Here are five different speed test sites in the US to help you answer that question. To get an accurate assesment of yours run tests several times at different times of the day and on different days.
If your ISP sold you a package with a download speed of, say, 25Mbs and your result is only 14Mbs, that's normal. ISP's advertise the maximum speed their network is capable of during a very light load. More users online and the speed drops far off the adveritsed rate.
In my experience with a wired router the available speed is divided by the number of connections to it which are active, I have no wireless so have no experience with that.

For best results clear your browser cache, cookies, temp files, etc. before a test.
The farther you are from the test server, the lower your results.

Speedtest.net This one has a map and lets you choose worldwide servers to test with.
