So today I got a new ASUS ROG G751JT-TH71 notebook running windows 8.1. I installed Google Chrome, Spotify, Avast, and Razer Synapse (I got a razer mouse too) as well as transferring some folders from the desktop of my old computer on a 1TB Toshiba external hard drive. Avast had scanned recently on the old computer so no viruses or anything brought over from that. Skype and Steam, which I used to start installing Civ V, but had to pause it early on, were already on it. I also uninstalled McAfee, which came installed, and some random bloatware that I don't remember all of, I know one of them was like a WildTangent games app and another was an ASUS Cloud Storage software that I installed and then uninstalled, nothing important though, I made sure. I have been having some DNS issues with my internet, but I ran troubleshooter which didn't turn anything up. I also restart the router regardless. I had to restart the computer a couple times to finish installs/uninstalls and the first time I restarted when it started booting back up it go stuck on a black screen so I turned it off and then back on with the power button and it seemed to work fine. Initially everything seemed fine, but over time images would stop loading displaying the cut page icon for a broken image and when I tried to play GIFs there would be tearing in the GIF and WebM video files stopped and started erratically and would just sort of break down into pixels at certain points. Spotify also started skipping very, very short bits of songs entirely or would get really staticy for a fraction of a second. This got progressively worse and worse until whole pages stopped loading for the most part and the browser acting like it had finished loading the page while half of it was missing, it was amazing that I was even able to make it this far. Pretty regularly at this point I've been getting an error from Chrome that reads:
Unable to make a secure connection to the server. This may be a problem with the server, or it may be requiring a client authentication certificate that you don't have.

Yet another update: Okay, last one before I call it a night. For some reason occasionally when I tried to load a website Chrome begins downloads with random names and it just does the "starting" buffering thing, but never actually starts. One was called "download" another called "iframeplayer.html"
