    Internet Slowdown


    I've been having this problem for about 3 weeks:
    When I turn on my desktop, internet speeds are fine. Then after 2-3 hours, it slows down to a crawl-
    it can take as long as 1-2 minutes to load a page. It's not the internet provider, Verizon, because a laptop
    on the same network works fine. This seems to happen every day. I've tried defragging, checked for viruses, etc.-
    but nothing seems to work. If I shut down the computer and restart, it works fine again for awhile.
    Any ideas? Anyone have this problem before?

    Pumseig, welcome to the Forum

    Lets try one solution at a time. Run a full antivirus scan, download and scan with the free Malwarebytes.
    Malwarebytes | Free Anti-Malware & Malware Removal
    Although you mentioned that you checked for virus, try with Malwarebytes if not done already.

    Download and run the free CCleaner.
    CCleaner - Free Download or try CCleaner Professional - Piriform

    Try a different browser, ie. Chrome, IE, Firefox etc.

    Is it just internet browsing that slows or all computer tasks?
    If it is all tasks check your temperatures and fan operation.

    Well, I downloaded and ran both of these programs. And it seems that my internet problems are fixed! Thank you very much for your recommendations- I'm glad I found this forum!
