I can't pinpoint when this started but, of late, web pages load slowly in both browsers.

 

My computer is a Dell Studio 540 that's about 7 years old.

 

Specs:

 

Disk C (OS/programs) - Seagate Barracuda - 400 GB - 7200 RPM - 16mb cache - 75% Free Space. 

Disk D (Data) - Hitachi P7K500 - 500 GB - 7200 RPM - 16mb cache - 75% Free Space.

CPU - Intel Core 2 Quad - QS300 @ 2.5 GHz.

BIOS - 2/13/2009 - GPRYNJ1 V 1.0.10.

Memory - 6 GB

Video - ATI Radeon HD 3600 Series

OS - Windows 7 Professional 64 Bit Service Pack 1

Browsers - Internet Explorer 11 and Firefox 45.02

Router - Linksys E3200

Windows Firewall

Defrag once a week.

MS Security Essentials - Scan once a week.

 

Online Speed Test - Download 16.37 mbps, Upload 2.27 mbps

 

What I've done so far:

 

CCleaner

Malwarebytes

Super Anti-Spyware

Tweaking.com Windows Repair

Restart after each of the above.

 

No success so far.

Hello there, 

 

Please take a look at this article: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/87058/slow-computerbrowser-check-here-first;-it-may-not-be-malware/

 

Also, it's not recommended running multiple Anti-viruses as this can cause the slowness in your machine. You'll will be totally fine with running just one AV. 

 

Hope this helps!

 I'll look into those tips. Though I was hoping for a solution that wasn't so involved.

Where did you get the idea that I was running more than one AV?

Update: I ran both browsers in Safe Mode. Worked fine.

 

Does that give anybody any ideas?
