Updrade to WIN 7 Professional 64-bit, slower browsing speed
I upgraded my OS from WIN 7 Home 64-bit, to WIN 7 Prof 64-bit and my browsing speed decreased dramatically. I primarily used Chrome before, but browsing is practically impossible on it now. So now I use Firefox 4 since its been decent with me. I have no clue what went wrong since the upgrade was successful. My router is fine, but browsing speed is just super slow. It wasn't like this before I upgraded. Does anyone know what the problem might be? Please and thanks for any advice given!
No, I did not download any drivers of any kind. Yesterday I installed a driver for my printer, but I doubt that will cause any problems. Although, (once again) yesterday I did download Microsoft Fix-It 50199 (Reset TCP/IP). Browsing speed increased quite a bit, but its still not the same as it was before the Windows 7 upgrade.
I would give Firefox 5 a try. It's still a bit slow loading if the HD is busy, but it does seem pretty fast as far as loading pages and general browsing. I use chromium as my primary browser and FF 5 as secondary.
