Do the usual stuff. Run a virus scan, run CCleaner to clean junk up, defragment your drive, etc. Should run faster.

Windows 7 Professional SP1 - x64 [Non-UEFI Boot]

Here you might find some tips...scroll the page to suit your needs:
You receive an error message in Internet Explorer: "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage"

You may either want to reset IE8:
Control Panel=>Internet Options=>Advanced Tab=>Reset...restart your browser.

I've done all that and, if anything, the problem has got worse ...and it's running even slower!

Windows 8 Pro w/MC 32-bit

Try rebooting everything especially the modem/router/switch (which may be one device or three separate devices). To check/repair the pc:
1) sfc /scannow (from a command prompt),
2) c: (properties) "disk cleanup"
3) c: (properties) Tools Tab: "Error Checking"
4) SF IE Restorator - Troubleshooting General Issues with IE

Windows 7 Home Premium x64

It's running "slower" because you deleted your cache and the browser needed to rebuild it when you visited the websites again.

Go to "manage add-ons" and see if there's any stuff that have long load/navigation time, and disable them, unless you really need them.
