Windows 7: Forever loading web browser

27 May 2013   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit
Forever loading web browser

This always happens when after i watch couple videos from youtube and then the internet stops working. The browser takes forever to load. The loading bar just keeps spinning doesnt load the page at all. This happens to all the web browsers. The internet is connected but it doesnt work at all. Its not only the browser, the online games i play take forever to log in. It runs for 3hours and nothing happens. When ever this happens i have to restart my computer to make the net work again. I have already tried re installed windows since it thought it was a malware but problem is still there
Could you please help me fix this...
Thank you

You're going to have to give more information about your PC before anyone can help you.
Click on your "User Control Panel" and fill out your system specs :)

If he has re-installed Windows and the problem is still there then I don't think the computer is the problem. I would suspect a router issue. OP, have you tried power cycling the router?

Can it be the router, sure can but knowing the system specs would help a bunch.

Yes if the internet performance goes BAD, I always cycle my cable modem AND router first.

OP should tell us of any recent changes to their system BEFORE the performance went bad, also.....

For instance, ran any so called internet speed enhancement tools?

Called your ISP and have them check your connectivity?

Some cable could have gone bad or is loose, network cards or on-board Ethernet certainly go bad, mine went goofy and put in a PCI card I had lying around unopened, and was back in business.

Routers/Cable Modems DITTO, over last 10 years, replaced router once, cable modem twice and the router didn't technically need it, but it was old dinosaur with mediocre encryption and bought a much improved one.
