My computer, one of three in the house, all on the same qwest modem, is having browser problems.
The other two do not exhibit this problem.
Running Windows7, Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 (updated), drive defraged, all latest versions and updates for OS and browsers.

Problem - Almost all URL's clicked on in any browser takes a long time to load. (15 - 30 seconds or more) The bottom right hand side of of screen shows "Waiting for google", waiting for google analytics", waiting for www.whatever-url.com.
I t hought I had it fixed, by going into msconfig and stopping many of the auto-loads and services at startup. Clearly this helped for about 30 minutes. Websites were slamming up on my screen, it was thrilling!! lol. Then it feel back to a crawl and now I'm stuck again. I even went into safe mode w/ network and still things load slowly as described above.

Kaspersky finds nothing.

Please download MiniToolBox, save it to your desktop and run it.

Checkmark the following checkboxes:
  • Flush DNS
  • Report IE Proxy Settings
  • Reset IE Proxy Settings
  • Report FF Proxy Settings
  • Reset FF Proxy Settings
  • List content of Hosts
  • List IP configuration
  • List last 10 Event Viewer log
  • List Installed Programs
  • List Users, Partitions and Memory size.

Click Go and post the result (Result.txt). A copy of Result.txt will be saved in the same directory the tool is run.

Note: When using "Reset FF Proxy Settings" option Firefox should be closed.
