Hello Mark mate run these in safe mode if need be < if necessary include the /f and /r in the command line as per Option2
often said that the sfc is best run for three consecutive runs doesn't take long but it is your choice.

if no change then try these
ADW download from bleeping computer delete any rubbish found with the malware scans
NB If anyone who has Kaspersky as their security they may find it will not like ADW running and to stop the nagging just temporarily disbale the Kaspersky while one runs ADW

Try browsing with Opera, with ad-blocking turned on. You may have some long running scripts running in the background which are slowing things down.

Another option is to browse with Firefox, with the NoScript add-in installed. Once you have installed NoScript, you'll need to allow necessary scripts to run, while blocking all others. There is a button in the bottom right of the screen; if you click on this button, you can choose to allow, temporarily allow, or block, scripts which are trying to run at that time. My approach is to block as much as possible, allowing only the minimum to run. Be patient, it takes a while to get NoScript fine-tuned properly. But once it is fine tuned, you will browse the web a lot faster.

Opera with ad-blocking is almost as fast as Firefox/NoScript
