I don't get it. Suddenly my firefox has become soooooooo slow at loading web pages. IE8 is even faster than it now. Its nearly unusable. It loads even lite sites likes facebook for a long time. However my transfer rate is still around normal at like 1mbps when downloading stuff.

Any ideas as to WTF is going on?

EDIT- Also downloaded Chrome. Thats just as bad if not worse. Did a Spyboy S&D scan and caught nothing. Doing MBAM atm. Any ideas?

You might try clearing the cache in Firefox. This usually helps me if pages get laggy. :thumbsup:

If all browsers are slow I'd definitely check for an infection.
