This computer problem has me stumped!

10 replies
There is one particular website that is excessively slow on my computer.

I have accessed it from another computer in the house and everything is normal. This rules out faults with the actual website and my ISP - it has to be my computer.

Ideas anyone?

    You can flush out your computer DNS resolver cache. Or you can use Google DNS or Open dns

    I have 3 browsers - Firefox, Chrome and IE. Websites are slow to load on all of them.

    Since my first post I have discovered that the problem applies to other sites as well. Even this WF page took about 30 seconds to load.

    What do you use on this current computer - WiFi or Lan cable?

    What about the other, which connects just fine? Did you check your computer for spyware?

        Scan has finished but nothing found.

    Power off and then restart it. That's nearly my first move when some piece of technology stops behaving the way it should or normally does. I don't start looking to much deeper until I have finished a simple restart and taken electricity away for a little bit. Often times that's enough to convince a piece of gear to start working right again.

    Problem cured. I performed a Windows Restore from the 16th. It didn't go through perfectly but seems to have done the trick.

    My thanks to all who came up with suggestions.
