    Computer has slowed down when browsing

      Recently my computer has slowed down when browsing the internet. Often a page will simply refuse to load. I am using Windows Explorer 9.

       

      I am running McAfee Security Center on a Windows 7 Professional 64 bit with 9 gig ram.

       

      Security Center has not detected any viruses or malware.

       

      Initially, I was connecting to the interent via home wifi. I thought that might be an issue so I ran cat5e to the computer. No improvement.

      Next I turned off the firewall and that seemed to improve things, The system is running faster but not like it was just a couple weeks ago.

      I tried a restore point going back a few weeks but that didn't help.

       

      Anybody have any suggestions. I am running several other computers through the same network and they are running just fine.

       

      Thanks
