Hi all, please help..My pc works great till I go Online...My computer connects ok but when I go to open a page the application takes ages to open..Not the actual page to download just the page itself to open, if i go to (for example) open favorites it takes ages for the menu to drop down...If i download something it downloads at normal speed..

Have tried deleting your temporary files and defraging?

yep tried that any other ideas would be great

check the settings on your antivirus software it may be checking every file before opening it.

I am using Zone Alarm all seems well with that just medium settings

my computer did run ok due to hard drive error i formatted re installed and its since the reinstall my problems have occured
Thanks for continued help

zone alarm is a firewall I meant your antivirus ie norton antivirus, avg etc. I am not sure but think it may be checking each and every file before opening it.

As i have just re installed I have put on Zone alarm but no anti virus yet, i have tried online virus scan i have no virus (house trend)
