I think your first thing to do is to see if your browsers themselves are slow, if your whole computer has slowed or if it is a problem with your internet connection. One that is established then if it is your connection there is little you can do but contact your ISP, if it is the computer or the browser programs then there could be many causes including viruses. Run your scanners again and also run "est online scanner" (available on this site), "rkill" (available on this site) and "kaspersky virus removal tool" (not available on this site). The scanners should all be run set to "detect and prompt" NOT "automatically disinfect or delete" because they might find false positives. Another thing i can advise is have a look in windows's task manager (ctrl-alt-delete) and see if there are loads of entries under "processes" (or if it is windows 8 that will be labelled details), don't try stopping any as some of them might be something important but it is worth seeing if there is anything large under there which you KNOW FOR CERTAIN should not be running. Another useful thing to do is download "CCleaner", you might have some big temp files or huge caches slowing your whole system down.

Back on this site, for a while anyway, been so busy the last year.

My systems:2 laptops, intel i3 processors, windows 8.1 installed on the hard-drive and linux mint 17.3 MATE installed to USB
