When I go to any website the "looking up..." process takes as long as 10 seconds before it loads the page.
There are othere computers connected to my router but my computer is the only one with this issue. This problem occurs with all web browsers I have. Firefox, Chrome, IE.
I have tried the following:
- using other DNS servers
- flushing my DNS cache
- running virus scan programs like Malwarebytes, and Spybot Search & Destroy
- I've also tried changing the PPPoE MTU size (which I changed back after it didn't work)
- toggled DNS setting in Firefox.
I use Windows firewall, and I currently don't have an anti virus program. I used Avast at first, and I just had Microsoft Security Essentials which I uninstalled recently. Same thing occurs when I had the AV programs installed.
