This started two days ago. Initially it was slow and then I could not even connect to a browser. Since then I have restored my computer back to the original condition and I can get connected to browsers but it either takes forever to do anything or it times out. This is a relatively new computer so I have a great deal of space. In addition my connection is running at 150 Mbps so it is not the internet. I have even turned off my virus software to see if that might be the culprit but it did not help. Please help me solve this issue. :huh:

Doubt speed is the issue.

Kindly disable all your BHO. And remove temp files. That should speed it up.

I noticed it too the other day, I was installing Samsung Kies and noticed my PC was relatively lagging. I ran CCleaner and what do you know. 1.2 Gigs worth of useless temp files.
Hardware tech when I was in college.
1st job was a network support for SOHO
2nd job was lappy tech
3rd Job way out of my league but its nice...

I agree with the suggestion to disable/remove browser add-ons.

I have done both things that were mentioned in the replies to my issue. I have disabled my addons and ran the speed test which shows that my download speeds are at .01 Mbps and my upload speed is .04 Mbps. I am using HughesNet as there are no other options as far as internet. But I should think that I would get much better speed that this. It does seem that my desktop computers running Windows XP (one is wired and one is wireless)have much better speed than my laptop running Windows 7. I ran the test with only my laptop online as I have the other two computers shut down. I am at my wits end as far as this problem.

Call your ISP something is wrong with your internet connection. You are getting less then Dial-Up Speed.

What I don't understand is that when I check the status of my wireless connection it shows that the connection is at 150 Mbps. It is only when I am in a browser that things seem to slow down.

150Megabits is your local connection inside your house not to the outside.

Thanks! I will check with HughesNet tomorrow. With the amount that they charge I should have a much faster speed than what I am getting.
