The internet speed, not the browser, but my actual speed is running so slow most webpages wont even load before timing out. It was working fine last night. The internet also runs fine on every other computer in the house, im posting on my laptop. What can i do to fix this? Ive tried reseting my router, repairing the connection using windows repair option. I dont know what else to do. Do i have a virus?

I really appreciate the speed and thought given to everyones responses!!! in the mean time i have received no response, but ive watched many topics created just minutes ago get 2-4 responses instantly!! there are tons of people on and browsing, Geekstogo used to be awesome and offer great advice, but over the years has EXTREMELY gone to crap. I will not be returning anytime soon until i see a more positive trend in the network, I have built many computers since joining Geekstogo, and i don't have many post because there are millions of computer owners out there that all share common problems, so i see no need to post when a problem has already been solved. Thanks guys for the lack of interest and support you provide. Have a great holiday season.

this is a tutorial on what to do when your computer/browser starts to become slower than usual

this helped me when my web pages didn't want to load:

Open Regedit (Start->Run REGEDIT) and browse to the following key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Explorer \ Browser Helper Objects

If you get there, you will see few keys (look like folders) that are in numbers and alphabets.
Delete all of them. ex. {333URHGRIHR84594U3U2HHB4Y}

the registry is very important to your computer please go file->export in regedit

basically exporting a copy of your registry will ensure that if something goes wrong you maybe able to go back to previous settings

hopefully this helps :)
