But I cannot figure out why. I have tried adjusting browser settings, clearing cache, clearing the extensions. My PC is Virus and Trojan free. I know its not my ISP, because when I play league of legends on my PC or any other online game, it loads up VERY FAST and connects to the server quickly, with no lag solid ping. Ive done speed tests on the speed test sites and everything is normal
Also. Netflix on all my wired and wireless devices runs smooth. All my other devices in the house (Phones, laptops, tablets) that can load webpages are loading them at blazing speeds when hooked wired and wirelessly to the same router. I built this PC myself and its always been speedy. Something happened out of nowhere. Heres another odd discovery too. certain web pages are loading improperly now as well. facebook takes like 10 mins to load, and when it does, its all text and no images. Youtube\’s formatting is way off as well and loads slow. Every webpage is taking a good amount of time to load up. Here\’s another odd thing. I wanted to test something out. so I went to a proxy server website to try and load websites through one of their search bars. the weirdest thing. everything loaded super fast and was formatted properly, yet when I use any of my browsers as normal, its slow as molasses out of no where.
The only thing I could find doing searches (which take forever because google also runs super slow now) is that it may be a DNS problem. Anyone have any clue? Weird huh? Its the same way no matter what browser I use. Literally almost every website takes about 60 seconds to load. It is really weird. I have read through various topics here. but none of them I think have some of the same circumstances (yes the slow loading, but in addition to the pages loading awkwardly as well as the proxy server situation. I thought it would be interesting) If it helps I have a linksys E3200 router. I just felt it. its kind of warm. but I dont think thats it since al my other devices are working excellent when loading pages. My PC is the only one hard wired in though I also use Bit defender as my Anti-Virus protection, and there\’s no malware spyware or anything as I said before.
I tried running the troubleshooting in Windows 7 on the network, it found no issues, I tried to run in for specific sites. it found no issues. I have re-started my router, and my modem, my PC. The only thing I havent done is change my router settings. but once again. that cant be it because its this PC only thats having the problems This has been going on for about a week. and it seems to get slower and slower. Edited by playgroundlegend, 21 October 2014 – 01:33 AM. Hello myfhn, This process of doing a clean boot worked for me, back to normal speed. I suppose to make it quicker I can do ten at a time to narrow down which application is causing the issue, one at a time would take forever. Thank you for the help, Thank you for posting to the Microsoft Answers Forum. I would recommend you do a clean boot with msconfig and see if there is a program or software that is conflicting and causing the slowness. I would like to see if any startup items or third party services could be causing the issue.
This is called a clean boot. You will Disable all startup items and third party services when booting. This method will help us determine if this issue is caused by a loading program or service. The steps below will place your computer into a Бclean bootБ, meaning using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs so that we can determine whether a background program is interfering. б Type msconfig in the Start Search box and then press ENTER. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Continue. б On the General tab, click Selective Startup. б Under Selective Startup, click to clear the Load Startup Items check box. б Click the Services tab, click to select the Hide All Microsoft Services check box, and then click Disable All. б Click OK. б When you are prompted, click Restart. Once the computer is back to your Desktop, check to see if you are still having the problem. If the issue is resolved by placing the machine in Бclean bootБ then we have some sort of third party application and or service running that is possibly interfering.
To determine which program(s) and or service(s) that is causing this, we would need to go back into БmsconfigБ and start to enable programs and services and reboot until we see which one causes the problem. If placing the computer in Бclean bootБ does not fix the issue or after the troubleshooting is done, follow the steps above БTo return your computer back to normal bootБ. How to set your computer back, to boot normal: 1. Click the Start orb on your Desktop 2. In the Start Search box. Type msconfig, and then press ENTER. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Continue. Click the General tab. 3. Click Normal Startup – load all device drivers and services, and then click OK. 4. When you are prompted, click Restart to restart the computer.
