Windows 7: Multiple Browsers with multiple issues

Multiple Browsers with multiple issues

Hey guys,
I've currently got 4 different browsers installed on my computer (IE, Firefox, Chrome, Opera). I've had different issues with each and every one of them. Right now I'm using Opera and for the most part it's been pretty good. Although lately it's been starting to act up.

I stopped using IE a year ago because it would just shut down on it's own. Chrome would freeze up. Firefox seems to lag sometimes and now Opera is showing signs of lagging. Lately Opera has become particularly bad with Facebook and is slow to load images. I've removed Opera and reinstalled. All of the browsers are up to date. The computer was reformatted a little while back. Everything is up to date. Virus scans show it's clean. I deleted all temporary internet files, cookies, etc etc. My hard drive has lots of free space on it. I know my internet is supposed to be high speed but sometimes I wonder about that. I've had issues with the modem in the past. So maybe that's one possibility?.


My computer is about 4 years old. Acer model AM3970.
Windows 7 64 bit.
CPU - Intel Core i3 processor 2120
RAM - 4GB DDR3 Memory
HDD - 1TB harddrive.




Can you recommend any other browsers that might be better than what I'm using?. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Classic2016, welcome to the Forum.

As you are having issues with all browsers, the logical possibility is your modem or internet speed.

Does your computer perform properly when not using the internet. If so the check in Device Manager for any modem driver issues. If all seems well there then, the modem itself may be the cause.

Hi:

I agree with @Ranger4.
Without seeing more detail about your system and its specs, it sounds like a system or networking or ISP issue.

If this is a laptop, do you see the same behavior when you use it on a different network (e.g. school, work, public wifi, friend/neighbor/family member network)?
If so, then the problem is likely with your computer.
If not, then the problem may lie with your modem or internet speed.

Have you tried resetting the browsers?

I hope this helps,
