Strange problem that started six weeks ago.
PC works fine, no problem with E Mails or any programmes BUT IE and Firefox are slow, and when I select a new page from the browser (not a favourite) it takes 2 to 3 minutes to load, but hitting F5 and the page is immediately viewable (Mostly)
Using Safari is better, but the whole surfing thing has become a nightmare.
I have restored system (strange I could ONLY go back 14 days), deleted every add on and anything loaded in the last 8 weeks (improved a bit), run IO Bit deep clean, Malware etc no issue. HJT shows nothing strange, nor does housecall. Laptop works fine on same connection.Cleaned PC, spoke kindly to it.
Why do I need to refresh page, what am I missing.?? Even when a page has loaded FF still usually shows it is loading data. Around 6 weeks ago, latest FF updated which included a FREE McAffee scanner, which I removed immediately, as soon as I realised it existed.and Windows essential updates. Removed Flash players, Adobe and PDF stuff and reinstalled latest, still takes time to load images.

AVG Free Anti Virus
Just an idea would be great, it is driving me crazy.
