When I go to any website the "looking up..." process takes as long as 10 seconds before it loads the page.
I had this posted in the Windows XP section. I was told to post here since I currently have no anti virus programs (to try to save resources since I use a netbook). I first installed Avast, and then removed it and installed Microsoft Security Essentials which I just recently removed. I've had this problem while the anti virus programs were still installed, I removed Microsoft Security Essentials, just to see if it changed anything, but it didn't.
There are other 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.
Any help would be much appreciated.
