I have absolutely no idea what my problem is, so I hope someone may be able to help me here.
I have two browsers in Windows 7, default IE and Safari, I did have google chrome but uninstalled it as it was displaying error notice upon opening and thought it was my problem (can't remember the notice now) but the problem still persists.
I cannot use safari as it just locks up upon opening and I have to end task through task manager. So I can only use IE (the current version).
When I open IE, my home page is google, add-free so opens nice and quick but not at the moment it takes around 1-2 minutes to open, typing in a search term say bleepingcomputer click search, the wait begins to load the search results, again anywhere from 45 seconds - 2 minutes for that. Click on my top result which is this site, and the fun part begins,this took quite a while to get the main page opened say 3-5 minutes approc. Enter my login detail and wait a few minutes to log in, click click on forums, wait a few minnutes, enter the topic I wanted (this topic), another couple of minutes, as you can see the waiting time is exessive.
I went that painful process accessing another site so I could test downloading a file, downloading that file was normal, 4MB in less than a minute. So that rules out my internet connection and leaves this problem either to the browser of my laptop I don't know which. I've done nothing different from any other day, it just ended up like this when I booted up this morning, it was fine yesterday, and every other day beforehand.
The other computer is running perfectly normal. I normally use my Mac computer but it is away have a new cd/dvd drive put in.
