Firefox web browsing becomes very slow but bandwidth speed tests are fine.

Q: Firefox web browsing becomes very slow but bandwidth speed tests are fine.

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.

Preferred Solution: Firefox web browsing becomes very slow but bandwidth speed tests are fine.

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.)

I recently wiped and reinstalled XP and found browsing the internet has become painfully slow, 6-10Kbs when downloading a file but when I'm using Bittorrent I get speeds of 200Kb+ which is what I had before when browsing.

I have checked the settings and all seem as they were before the reinstall and have used both Firefox and IE but they both suffer from the same problem. I've reset the router, reinstalled the wireless USB adapter and cleared internet caches.

I have posted in the "Malware Removal & HijackThis Logs" forum but have found nothing wrong.

I have a netgear router and wireless USB adapter and am running XP Pro (sp2).

Thank you for your help.

Recently I upgraded from Windows Vista home basic 32 bit to Windows 7 professional 32 bit.

Now however, my browsing speed is very slow and often doesnt work. It seems to especially have trouble with google related stuff (eg Gmail and google maps etc).
However when I finally get a page up, download speed for files are completely normal. Im currently using firefox 4, but I have already tried Chrome and Internet Explorer with no difference between the 3. Ive tried disabling/uninstalling firefox addons, Ive also tried with and with out an active firewall, and turning off my anti virus software. Ive also scanned my computer with my anti virus (Sophos) as well as Spybot Search and Destroy. None of this has helped either.

All other computers in my house hold are all browsing the net fine, including my laptop also using windows 7.

I have really run out of ideas, as my computer was browsing the net fine before upgrading.

Sorry if I have posted this in the wrong place or this has been resolved elsewhere, I am a neewbie to forums, and I couldnt see a similar thread.

I have a new Dell Inspiron 5110. I have a number of wireless computers and all the others, iPad, smart phone, etc, are having no problem. I tested the internet connection speed and it is faster to this computer than to the others, probably due to the N Adapter on a Dlink N Router. The others are all G cards. However, one of four things happens with Firefox, Chrome, IE and Opera.
The browser cannot find the server.
The browser times out many times before finding the servers
Sometimes it does find the server and the site, no consistency in the behavior.
When it does find the site, it is usually painfully slow.
I have tried everything I can think of. It usually does come up in Safe mode with Networking.
I set the DNS option to the Google DNS servers and for a while that helped.
I have flushed the cache and winsocket with command line prompts.
I have turned off the firewall.
I tried disabling the v6 tcp/ip option in the adapter properties.
None of this has made any difference.
90% of my work is researching on the internet which makes this computer useless to me.
I have run PC Cleaner, done thorough scans of my computer, etc. There was one virus that appered in the MSFT Essentials scan but it deleted it.
Sometimes one browser will not work at all whereas another will work minimally.
I see others complaining of this problem, but the threads do not seem to carry through for a solution.

A new wrinkle is that I now see 3 wireless connections reported, two are through the miniports ... Read more

Hello everyone,

I began experiencing a problem Friday evening, February 27 with my internet browser. My default browser is Firefox, and I have a wired dsl connection, operating system is Windows XP, SP3. On Friday, my browser suddenly slowed to a crawl, to sub-dialup speeds. I tried logging on with IE and the same problem occurred. I have contacted my dsl provider and the line speed has no problems. In fact, I can access email through Outlook, and Itunes and my antivirus program's download speed is unaffected. I am able to browse the web through Outlook without any loss of speed.

I have tried removing and reinstalling Firefox without success. I have done a complete system scan with AVG anti-virus, and have also done the same with Iolo anti-virus (after removing AVG). Of course, I have emptied the cache and cookies, without any help.

I suspect a virus. I note also that Windows system restore appears to have been disabled, preventing me from restoring my computer to a functioning state. From previous experience, I know this is a common trick employed by viruses to prevent a quick fix.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Peace and blessings,


A:Web browsing is slow with IE or Firefox, dsl and email are fine

Well, It sounds like to me it might be a Virus. However, I'd try downloading another Browser just to see. Try either Safari or Opera. Install them, and take a run. If they also show sluggishness, then we can be assured it has a possibility of a Virus. We can deal with that after we run a "diagnostic".

Post your performance after you get it done.

Reporting a problem to my ISP, which bandwidth speed tests are true/accurate?
Getting satellite internet speed tests all over the map, ranging from 2.88 Mbps to 21 Mbps (download speeds) using various test sites.  (Results in list below.)  Sites that give low results do it fairly consistently.  Sites that give high results also within a consistent range.  Same for ones that give mid-range results.  This includes some sites that use the same test engine (Ookla) -- yet they get widely different results.  Ran tests to many servers around the country, last night and today.
This will be a long report, because I believe full detail may help and will save us having to do some of the usual Q&A.

The last couple of hours my "upload speed" has been going haywire. My tested speed at Speedtest.net by Ookla - The Global Broadband Speed Test it shows 0.8Mbps which is what I usually have. Task Manager shows I'm using 0Kbps, unless I'm saying something in mumble, which is the only program actually running. My friend that I'm talking to responds 5-6 seconds after I say something and he always responds with "I think you are lagging, all I can hear is robot noises" and I'm constantly getting disconnected from mumble. My Ethernet Status shows that I'm sending 1/10 of my received packages (13,960,000 sent, 149,128,000 over 30 minutes) so I'm not actually uploading anything.
My download is fine, I can browse websites just as before but as soon as something needs to be uploaded I just disconnect or it takes ****ing forever.
I have reset my router, 4 times. I have restarted my PC, more times than I can count on my fingers. Other PC's on the same network works fine. I have terminated all processes that windows doesn't need to run and mumble.

Ok, We just updated our modem from a Motorola SBG900 to a SBG6580.

Speedtests are substantially better.

We have 2 laptops, 2 desktops, 2 Xboxs, and a PS3 all running on the network. All of them are running amazing...except for (of course) my desktop.

I can run speedtest on my desktop and get around 12Mb, but when I try to browse the internet, websites take stoopid long to load and sometimes won't even load. But to make things even more strange, when I stream a video from youtube or something, it will take years for the video to start streaming, but once it does, it flies.

Talked to Motorola and all they could say, is if you have an internet connection, its fine.

No settings were changed at all from the time we turned off the old modem to the time we activated the new one.

Virus scan checks out. Tried on both Wireless and Wired. All drivers updated. Was about to format my computer but I lost my damn Win7 install disc. >< Please Save Me.

Hi there
on IE I get a MUCH faster result from OOKLA than with Firefox -- same server for test. Seems a lot of work is done by Firefox in loading ads or whatever which undoubtedly effects the results.

Anybody else notice speed difference using SAME server but with different browsers.


A:OOKLA speed tests totally different on IE and Firefox !!!

Just to check using FF....Yes it different for me to. In the top left corner it says "Beta". It's crazy different....but so freaking cool. I like it. In Chrome it's the old version. The results are almost identical for me and using 2 different servers from 2 different states.

I wonder why the Beta on Firefox?

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

I know this is a common problem with a simple answer, but I forgot what the answer was. 
Okay, so I'm browsing normally, no problems with anything taking too long to load. But then as soon as someone else jacks into the router, I get problems with loading things. 
Now I forgot, which of these things is usually used to solve that? A better router? Faster internet service? Both? Something else? 
Also, which of these things would help me with computers that don't get very good browsing speed while connecting wirelessly?

A:Browsing speed is fine, until someone else plugs into the router.

The reason your connectiion appears to slow down is that your ISP provides a certain amount of bandwidth to your connection and this is divided among all the computers connected to it.
So you have, say, a 5Mbs connection, then one computer gets the whole 5Mbs to itself, 5 computers it's 1Mbps per computer. It's not quite as simple as that, it depends a lot on what the various users are doing, but that basically is what is happening.
Unless you have a very fast internet connection, the limiting factor is the speed of your internet connection to your ISP.
Connecting by wireless, as opposed to ethernet, is almost always slower, although the reduction may be very small. It depends on a lot of factors which include : distance from the router; structural materials between the computer and the router; alignment and positiioning of the various aerials.
For computers with reduced browsing speed using wi-fi, probably the biggest difference you can make is to play around with the aerial position. As an example, I use a USB dongle on my desktop which is mounted using a magnetic clip and a short extension cable at the very front top of the right hand side. if the mounting clip slips down by as little as half an inch ( 1.25 cm ) I lose about 25% of my signal !

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.

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.

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.

So far I've found out that it has nothing to do with the internet connection line or my NIC (I tried a brand new one and it was the same issue), it's not spyware or malware, it's not fragmented and under internet connections it says that I'm connected on a 100 Mb network card and there are no problems with any of the devices?

However I can see that if I open the job list, the download connection is very unstable going from up to 750 kb for a breif moment then falls to a halt at 0 kb... and moreover it says that I'm not using any percent of the network?

I'm on windows 7 and haven't had any problems before this, the rest of the system works just fine, but not the internet. If I try and download something it won't get higher than like 50 kb and then may... Read more

Recently my desktop has experienced very slow download speeds (~0.11 Mbps), however the upload speed appears to be in line (~2.0Mbps). These numbers are taken from Comcast's speed test (my ISP). It is obviously a problem with my PC because everything else on the network (PS3, Laptop) have great signals with no problems. I just recently reverted the Desktop back to its factory state, and everything was working fine for a couple of months.

The desktop in question uses Vista 32-bit and the Belkin Basic USB Wireless Adapter.

My wife has a Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop running Windows 7 Professional, 64 Bit, 3.00 GB Memory with Intel 2.16 GHz.
Our ISP provider installed a new Router about four months ago and tested up and down speeds before they left.
Downloads were in the high 20s Mbps and uploads in the 5s Mbps.
I began to notice a couple of weeks ago that Internet access with either IE or Chrome seemed kind of slow. I ran speedof.me and the best download speed is 12 Mbps but usually around 7 Mbps but the upload speeds are still around 5 Mbps.
I have an iPhone, a Kindle Fire and a Toshiba laptop and have run speedof.me on them, (right next to the Dell laptop) and the speeds on all three are fine.
We use Norton Security and I ran the Power Eraser with nothing found. Ran Malware Bytes and nothing of concern showed up. Updated the wifi card driver from Dell as well as the driver for the Marvell Yukon Internet controller.
No Joy. I would appreciate any suggestions you might have for me to try to speed her laptop.
I thank you in advance.

This is my first post here, so please bear with me... I was originally going to post this in the "malware" forum, but I am not convinced that linked to anything malicious and wanted to get peoples thoughts first.

I have 2-3MB/S DSL and a desktop PC connected to the router with a cable. Its running XP and in general its fine. Its stable.. Everything works and my downloads are in the 200MBytes/S region... But for some time (and it could be as long as a year), I have found Web Browsing to be slow...

The reason its been so long is that since buying a Laptop and iPad, I rarely use the desktop for browsing and never thought anything of why it was slow... My Laptop/iPad connects wirelessly and they fly. Web browsing is instant and I never really considered that there was anything wrong.

But in the last few days I have finally realised that something is wrong my with Desktop.. Very wrong.. Web browsing is so slow, its unusable..

Every page you visit, pauses at the "connecting with www....." and "waiting for www......" before finally loading. Even connecting to the routers own address ( is slow. If I am honest, I always thought that this was a Network or Router problem, even though my wireless devices performed flawlessly. However, I have connected my laptop to the same port on the router, so that its now cabled (rather than wireless) and it works fine, so I know that its not a router/network fault and must be something on the PC...

The latest wave of upcoming changes to the world's two most used Web browsers, jointly responsible for easily three-fourths of the Internet's HTTP requests, has nearly everyone in the business rethinking the meaning of "quality" as it pertains to browser architecture. While their arguments start with the usual reminders that folks just want to see their pages load faster, before too long, they wander into dissertations about the methods architects use to achieve the appearance of loading faster. . . especially when they actually don't.

In preparing to test Microsoft's first Internet Explorer 9 public beta, released last week, and Mozilla's public Firefox 4 beta, released late last month, the advice I received most often fell into two departments: 1) Pay more attention to graphics rendering, since new browsers will be spending more time processing Web apps than just displaying pages; 2) start paying attention to how browsers utilize memory and CPU cycles. Since my smarter readers are typically right, that's what I've done in crafting my all-new browser performance test suite.

In the first round of total scores for the latest beta builds, the first IE9 beta has squeaked by the latest FF4 beta by about 8%. These scores take into account four major departments: computational ability (30%), rendering ability (30%), scalability (losing less processing ability over time as processing jobs scale up, 20%), and now, hardware utilization efficiency (20%). In... Read more

A:Firefox 4 beta loses to IE9 beta in browser speed, efficiency tests

I'm all for fast processing on my computer, but I'll be honest in that I don't really feel much difference whatsoever between IE, Firefox, Chrome and Opera and it's been like that for me over the past 2-3 years. My reasons for liking Firefox so much have to do with features coming sooner (pop-up blocker, tabbed browsing, add-on support, tear off tabs) and familiarity with the product(when you spend so much time with something, it becomes second nature.). So, for me, unless another tool comes that does something radically better, I'm not even inclined to give the other products a chance. People can rant and rave about speed all they want...but it's one of the lowest factors in the mix for me.

I recently wiped and reinstalled XP and found browsing the internet has become painfully slow, 6-10Kbs (2mins to download HJT) but when I'm using Bittorrent I get speeds of 200Kb+ which is what I had before when browsing.

I have checked the settings and all seem as they were before the reinstall and have used both Firefox and IE but they both suffer from the same problem.

Thank you for any help you can give.

Problem 1:

I am on a 256KBps broadband line.
Recently I can download using Orbit Downloader at 14-19KBps, but browsing seems to be really slow.

I tried Opera and Chrome and both are slow to display pages of all kinds from simple text pages to facebook and flash pages.
And I shutdown all other programs including Orbit that is downloading, before trying to test browsing speed.

I deleted browsing data, cache, cookies etc from Chrome and Opera and restarted several times, and the surfing speed did not increase.

How do I fix it?

Problem 2:

I live in Bangladesh, and my ISP has a real bad connection. I am on the 256KBps line.
They say the problem is with my computer, though I dont think so.

Most speed tests are geared towards high speed (>1MBps lines) and require access to a server to calculate results, like SpeedTest.net. They are not suitable for continuously monitoring all the fluctations of a very slow connection. I need a desktop gadget that shows a graph or constant meter for my internet speed.

Does anyone know of a free desktop speed test?

Hi All
I'm hoping someone might be able to help me.  My friend gave me her laptop to look at (i've a little bit more knowledge than her) as last week her internet was really slow.  When i run a speed test on it i the the following Ping 23ms, download 37.91 mbps & upload 24.64mbps.  These are all over wifi, so there is no problem from that end.  My laptop is running fine and the internet is not slow at all.
The laptop has windows 10 (but just from today as 8 was driving me mad). 
I've ran Malwarebytes Anti Malware on  and that isn't coming up with an problems.  I also tried changing the DNS to the following & but it didn't make a difference.  I'm kinda stuck as to what else to do.
Thanks for any help you can give me

A:Internet Browsing slow but everything is fine when i run a seed test

As you changed the DNS make sure you have flushed the dns resolver cache ipconfig /flushdns.
Have you tried clearing the browser history?
If your using another browser other than Edge disable any extensions/plugins and see if it improves.
Anti-virus web filters/protection can occasionally cause these symptoms what are you using for protection?
Also from past experience with others may be a good idea to check TaskManager while your browser is open to see if resources are being used properly CPU is not at 100% and MEM is not maxed out either.

Guys, is there any way I can help speed up my browsing on the internet? I know some sites are slower than others but, as of late, the internet seems to slow down to a crawl yet, when I do the speed test, I end up scoring higher or just where I am supposed to be at.

I only use Avast as my A.V. & Spyware + Windows Firewall, no proxies. I am also using OpenDNS for my dns address and this has help a bit but still, I will like more from it since when I download a file, it does it fairly quick.

Any ideas?

A:Extremely slow Internet browsing... Download speeds are fine

If we assume you are not hit by evil infection, then it might be relevant that an older post of yours show you have router with firmware not updated since long. Wireless Routers - Linksys Community Forums try search for it here. Lots of problems like this v4.21.1 of Linksys WRT54G Firmware is Bad - Wireless Routers - Linksys Community Forums though you can say the same for many routers.

So why dont you update to Tomato firmware? If it qualifies, Tomato FAQ | polarcloud.com

That way you can let router handle dynamic IP update (Basic, DDNS) and also get a little boost by increasing build in cache. Advanced, DHCP/DNS can be set up like in the pic. In older post I lost url to did you say Opendns ips changed? They should not. Only and are allowed I think, see pic for how it looks in Tomato.

Read up on Tomato site, there should not be a risk by "flashing" - can go back. Also dont wonder where firewall went - it is not possible to turn it off

If browsers are hosed by infection good luck Opendns can have problems in certain areas but should be temporarily. Infection is more likely than opendns messing up if set up correctly.

I have 3 PC's connected to a router which is connected to a cable modem. All sharing a cable line. I ran speed tests on each of my PC's and one of my PC's (the one Im using now) came back with a extremely low result. Here were the numbers:

PC1 - 100.64 kbps
PC2 - 2776.49 kbps
PC3 - 2776.49 kbps

These bandwidth tests were performed on bandwidth.com and I tested each PC one after the other. What I want to know is, how is it possible that one PC can perform so slow when the other 2 can achieve super fast speeds?

PC1's built-in Ethernet card is a 10/100 Mbps type, which is the same type as PC2.

PC3 has a 10/100/1000Mbps card, and it achieves the same speed as PC2.

All are running Windows XP Service Pack 2, all PC's are connected to the router via Cat 5 cables (same brand). Router is a Linksys Etherfast Cable/DSL Firewall Router (#BEFSX41)

Can someone help solve this? I dont know what would differentiate the download speeds when PC 1 and PC 2 have the same built in ethernet card speeds, but achieve different download rates?

In terms of usage, PC 1 is a heavily used computer, I browse and save webpages, download demo PC games, files, etc, but dont know if this contributes to the slowdown. I have cleaned my Temp Interent Files folder.

Both PC 1 and PC 2 have closely the same specs (PC 1 is a Emachine c1641, PC 2 is a Emachine W2260) and PC 3 is a newer laptop. PC 1 has about 1GB free space left, PC 2 has about 16GB. (IF space is an determinan... Read more

Hi. I just bought a Virgin 20Mb broadband package, downloads work fine and near enough at that speed but browsing the internet takes forever to load webpages (30sec-1 min). On Speedtest.net it showed my download speed was 19Mb/s but my upload speed was just 0.16Mb/s, I'm gathering this is the reason why browsing is so slow. If anyone can help, I'd greatly appreciate it. Oh and if you ask for any logs or any information could you explain how to get it in realy simple terms please because I don't know or understand any of the techno language. Thank you!!

A:My web browsing speed too slow.

You could try Opera it has a Turbo feature.

When Opera Turbo is enabled, webpages are compressed via Opera's servers so that they use much less data than the originals. This means that there is less to download, so you can see your webpages more quickly.

Hello, first off I would like to say hello to the Tech Support forums for this is my first post here. Secondly i am sorry if my problem has been discussed and solved already but I have been trying to get this solved for the past 5 days and I'm a wee bit short of the patience to flip through a bunch of pages to find the thread.

Alright so here is my problem. My internet browsing speed is very slow, it takes about 3-4 min to completely load a page. Sometimes it just gives up and doesn't even completely load it. I have tried many many things and recently just formatted my computer early today. That didn't solve my problem so i figured i would give my ISP a call. They didn't know what was up either so now i am pretty stumped.

I have tried using Firefox and nothing changed, I've done pretty much everything i can think of. My computer runs on DSL and is connected through a modem, there is another computer in the house connected wirelessely and it is working excellent. My download speed is sitting around 400 kb/s, i have updated all my network drivers, done about 100 virus scans and ad-aware scans. I have a Dell Pentium 4 3.0 Ghz Processor with 1gb of RAM and a 140gb hard drive. My last hope, though a slim one, was that McAfee firewall was doing some funky stuff (even though there were not any problems with it earlier). So i turned it off and nothing happened, big surprise.

Hi All,

The Problems seems to be that the Browsers are very slow or may not even load a page. I loaded Utorrent to see if the connection was dropping in and out but while downloading it stays at a steady rate. Which would rule out the Connection to the internet I would assume.

1. I have turned of anti virus still the same.
2, I have turned of firewall and still the same
3. shot myself and it still the same
4. turned of Microsoft Security Essentials still the same
5. Also done a fresh install of windows just to make sure
6. Was connected to a server, but i have bypassed that, Now connected straight to the modem/router.

My Dad is waiting for me to set his new machine up so he can continue playing online games so we would be both grateful for any help. Im going crazy at the moment cause it has to be something simple that I'm over looking.

I am also using the same connection with another machine and have no issues at all. So It would be the Win 7 64 machine that has an issue. I use the same CAT 5 and just pull it out of one and put it in the other.

a few weeks ago, my desktop computer, which remains off 5 days a week randomly, started to show extremely slow speeds in browsers. On both Chrome and Firefox, pages will take minutes to load and when it does load, the page is stripped to bare text and maybe some pictures. Any other program which connects to the internet, such as online games and MSN are fine and have no problems. I've tried clearing cache, restarting, and scanning for spyware with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and although it found some spyware and trojans, it was nothing new as my desktop had already been long infected. Is there anything else I should try? Should I just post a HJT log anyways?

I installed windows 7 64-bit the other day and i've noticed that browsing the internet is VERY difficult. Sometimes pages will only half load (missing graphics etc) or not load at all. I have tried chrome, IE and firefox and they all have the same issues. As another example, no youtube videos load anymore it just gives me an error. I know my internet isn't this slow because it never has been and i haven't changed anything, if i'm downloading files from the internet I can get decent speeds, its just browsing that is the real pain. I have looked for solutions to the problem, and i've tried them but they don't seem to work, one told me to add these two keys to my registry, one told me to type something into command prompt others have told me to disable windows update and nothing has solved it. Any help would be appreciated.
