Other options are to clean out your Internet "cache" etc.

If using Internet Explorer download and use Firefox it is much quicker. I would also give Malwarebytes free an update and run just to see if it finds any problems.

I use Ad-block Plus with Firefox. If you were using I/E did you download another host file to use. I found that with I/E it was the new Host file that was slowing it down. So I removed it and it is much quicker at opening new web pages now. Another one to try is command prompt and type in ipconfig /flushdns then press enter on the keyboard. It should tell you the DNS Cache has been flushed if so reboot and see if it works any quicker.

Go to file in Firefox.Import. And import favorites from I/E
