Slow Internet on local Network

Does anyone know what would cause IE to load webpages slowly? The last couple of weeks; everyone in our building has had this issue. The internet speed tests says its fine, but pages load slowly. I can use google chrome though and it seems much more normal.

Thank for any help

I think a 3rd party Tool is the cause.

Click Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools, and then click Internet Explorer (No Add-ons).

Test if it's still slowly.

This maybe a long shot, but have you tried checking/unchecking (reverse what it is currently) the 'Automatically Detect Settings' box in Tools . Internet Options > Connections tab > LAN Settings

Also does your organisation use any sort of webcache/proxy server between the PCs and the Internet?

Also try running IE in 'no addons' mode to see if maybe a 3rd party plugin is causing the issue (Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Internet Explorer (No Add-ons))

Best regards.

Thanks for the responses.

We don't use a proxy server. I'm not sure if its an add-on issue because around 50 computers on our Network all have had the same issue the last couple weeks. And we haven't changed anything on our Network...
I'm discovering that other browsers are actually running slow as well. I'm trying to figure out if its an issue with my ISP or what?
