Hi, I know it has been answered before, but I still need to ask for your help.

Until 4 days ago everything worked fine... pages took about 1-5 seconds to load.
Then I installed the AnonymoX plug-in in Firefox and a couple Windows updates.
After that all websites take from 30 seconds up to 5 minutes to load. I cant even load a youtube video... usually takes over 30 seconds to start playing.
I only visit a few websites. I don't use this PC to search around the web.
Even the ~10 websites I visit take over 1 minute to load.

I tried a few things, even used system restore... but nothing changed.
I even changed LAN cable and router port.

So yesterday I did a clean format and installed everything again.

The problem still exists.

My 5 years old laptop loads everything in 10-20 seconds, while my pc takes more than 1:30min in average

Any suggestions?

Problem SOLVED.... Uninstalled AVAST INTERNET SECURITY 8.0 and everything is back to normal...

P.S. Admins can close or delete this thread if necessary.

Look forward to even longer load times now that you've uninstalled Avast for some scabby proxy add-on once you get infected. :rolleyes:
