Hi, my friend has broadband, xp, is wired to a router with an ethernet cable but says his internet explorer takes up to 10seconds to load and if it takes longer then it wont load at all! i suggested turning both the pc and router off, downloading and using Ccleaner, Malwarebytes and Defraggler and running them? do you think this is good advice?
Try Run type in cmd.Ok. Command prompt will appear. Type in ipconfig /flushdns[small gap between ipconfig and forward slash or it will not work]Enter.It should tell you Dns cache has been flushed if so reboot your computer and see if any difference. Try with his add-ons disabled.or with his Firewall switched off. or tools.internet options.Advanced and restore advanced settings. or advanced.and press reset.That resets internet Explorer to its original state.he will loose his add-ons but just a matter of going back into them and enabling them again.This works on IE7 not sure about any other version. Or tell him to download and run Firefox temporarily until he gets I/E fixed. Also check the air vents clear of dust and fluff if so inside will also need cleaning.
