Windows 7: Slow browsing.

19 Aug 2011   #1

Windows 7 Basic 64bit.
Slow browsing.

Hey guys.

Had my new machine 4 or 5 months now, running great. Very high spec.

Just yesterday, I was using Google Chrome and it just suddenly... wouldn't load ANY pages. My internet is working fine. So I used Firefox instead, as that seemed to be working fine. But today, that's being really slow. And most of the time goes into "Not responding." if it needs to load something like a video.

Any ideas?

* Are you running the latest versions of Chrome & Firefox?....
* Add ons can cause Browsers to slow down. Disable them & see if that improves the situation.
* You could take a peek in Event Viewer > Application to see if there are any red error messages relating to your problem.
* Another idea would be to uninstall the offending program & reinstall again.
