It is only a problem on this PC in the house.

 

Despite an ethernet connection, some websites do not load (like Yahoo) and other websites do load, but slowly. The Youtube website loads completely, but videos load slowly. Trying to reach a new version of flash will not load. (White screen and loading symbol in the tab.)

 

I had this problem before, but I did a factory reset which seemed to fix it. But it appears it hs happened again. The computer was running fine for almost a year before I had to to the factory reset.

 

Any idea what the problem could be? In the meantime I am going to do a Malwarebytes scan from my phone onto the computer.

Hi - I just wanted to add that I've also been having this problem for the last week or two. In fact I just read a thread on another forum from a Vista user who described it well:

 

http://www.thefogbow.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=9893

 

So I'll be trying the advice given there. I notice another similar thread on THIS forum too (https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/651776/browsers-wont-load-any-page-on-windows-vista-home-premium/) so I'm relieved to know it's not just me. I'm running Vista Home Premium, and I'm having terrible problems with web pages refusing to fully load, downloads failing, video streams now working, it's been a terrible headache.

 

EDIT! ANOTHER thread on this forum (https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/651776/browsers-wont-load-any-page-on-windows-vista-home-premium/) provided the answer! For me at least. It's Avast Anti-virus, I think specifically the Web Shield component. Disabling this temporarily removed all problems! So relieved.

This computer has avast and disabling Web Shield seems to have fixed the problem.

 

Are you aware of any ways, maybe with customized settings, to keep it enabled and have it not slow down internet speed?

Someone else suggested:

 

Settings->Components->Web Shield->Customise->untick "Enable HTTPS scanning"

 

This worked for me. I now see that there's an Avast update waiting to install (it's flagging me for the update, which never usually happens, so I imagine this means it's a substantial update), so perhaps this will address the problem anyway.
