Extremely Slow Web Page Loading

Posted on 2007-07-21

I have two desktops running XP Professional SP2 connected to an Actiontec M124WR Router.  On one desktop the Internet Page loading has slowed to a crawl for any site.  Other programs on the computer behave normally with the exception being the page loading.  The other desktop on my network loads the Internet pages normally.  My Internet service is Verizon.  When running a Verizon Speed Test on the slow computer it gives me 127659.6KB on the upload and 15957.4KB on the download whcih are extremely fast numbers.  In fact, it is faster than the computer where the pages load noramlly.  I have run Registry Fix and defragemented the drives on the problem machine.  I have run Webroot anti-spyware scans and McAfee anti-virus scans.  I am running out of ideas.  I was wondering if it has something to do with McAfee but I am not sure.  I am running Computer Associates on the machine without the problem.  Any further ideas are welcome.  Thanks, Al Hunt

    on the slow one try this
    run cmd
    ipconfig /flushdns
    then reboot

    it could be down to a currupt dns resolver cache and this will flush it and start afresh

    Greetings awhunt !

    1. Register an important send/receive library file.  Go to Start > Run and type regsvr32 inetcomm.dll

    2. Check if McAfee antivirus email check is slowing sending and receiving.  Disable it. Check if other programs running in the background is interfering. Disable one at a time the Firewall, antispyware, antispam, and all Norton programs.

    3. In the account settings, Advanced settings, change the server timeout time from 1 min to 5 min

    4. Create a new Outlook profile.

    Best wishes, war1
