I am using IE 8 with Comcast Internet. One computer is interacting with the internet very slowly. It takes 2-5 minutes just to display a page. It will eventually load, but it is worse than dial up speed. This computer is hard wired to my router. All of the applications that access the internet are affected, specific applications as well as Firefox. My other computers (one wired, one wireless) can browse and access the internet fine. Speed is as expected. I have Webroot Internet Security Essentials installed on all 3 systems. I have changed router ports and checked the cable. Any ideas why this system is suddenly accessing the internet so slowly?

Thanks for the help,

You might check Event Viewer for errors that might possibly provide a clue.

How To Use Event Viewer - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/40108/how-to-use-event-viewer/

Double-clicking on a line item will reveal details for such.

You might also check your protocols enabled for all computers, just to make sure they are identical.
