I'm a little bit stuck on this one. I am running an old PC, but to be honest despite it's age it runs very well and i frequently run some very resource heavy things all at once (media player, guitar tone emulators, DAWs, iTunes, photoshop etc) and it works fine. So I'm quite perplexed that certain sites take an AGE to load on my PC.
Examples would be:
Facebook, youtube, failblog and any site that features lots of adverts.
Also, any site that automatically loads comments etc as you scroll down is painfully slow.
When I'm on youtube I will sometimes find that, when typing in the search box, there is a massive lag and some letters will be missed out even though they are most definately punched in on the keyboard.
I've run malware bytes and MSE, cleared the DNS cache, disabled several plugins, updated graphics drivers to the latest....none of which have worked and I'm not really sure what's up with it. The above issues are the same across both IE and firefox.
I also have a problem that whenever I click a link from google, 9 times out of 10 I have to hit back more than once as there are several re-directs between google and the site. I mention that only in case it helps diagnose the problem.
Any help would be greatly appreciated as it is getting very annoying (!)
