Windows 7: Browser Running Slow

Browser Running Slow

Last week my internet browser (FireFox) started loading very sluggishly almost at dial up speed. I ran Norton and it found no problems so I then reset my browser and still had the same issue.
I then did a speed test and it said my Ping was 18 but my download speed was 0.4kbps and upload was 1.3mbps I should normally get a 15mbps download speed.

So I called up Geek Squad since I still had their warranty and they came in and ran some software, deleted some files and left. She ran fine for two days but now I am back to square one.

My xbox360 internet connect runs fine and I can also play World of Tanks on my computer with a 30-40 ms rate and no lag.

But I go to my browser and it takes forever to load pages.

Help, please.

pop-up blocker running outside of the browser
How do I locate and disable a pop-up blocker on my Windows 7 computer? I don't think it's in the browser because I created an exception for this URL in both Firefox and IE and still have a problem. It was suggested to me that it may be embedded in taskbar (toolbar?) at the bottom of the screen,...

Is Your Browser Slow?
If you answered YES, then probably you are using Internet Explorer. I used IE for ten years or more. This past weekend the baseball site I frequent forced me to switch due to an overhaul of their site. I am now using Firefox 11 and it is much, much faster. If yours is slow, give Firefox a...
