How to fix my Dell PC taking forever to load Web pages?
I have a nearly new Dell PC that all of a sudden is taking forever loading Web pages :(
To be exact, half the time it loads Web pages Ok, half a time it take from few Minutes to for ever loading Web pages. And NO the problem is not the Internet connection or destination Sites, since there are others in same room beside me, and they can access same Web pages instantly.
What is going on all of a sudden with my Dell PC? How can I fix this?
Thank you for your assistance, as this is making me totally miserable :(
The first thing that comes to mind is your 'browser' - check Tools/Options in Firefox, which should basically be the same for IE, Edge, or Chrome and check your advanced settings to see if the browser is 'remembering your history'. I would also suggest your totally 'clear your cache' AND run a 'Disk Cleanup'. All of these steps combined should get you running just as fast as your mates. Hope this helps you and would love to hear back on it.
Seems to me like you need to run a PC Tune up software on your PC.
And although suggestions below are good, to be exact CCleaner is good, there are better PC Tune Up choices than CCleaner as you can see here:
What browser are you using? Some browsers perform better than others especially if you are using a number of extensions or plugins.
For improving performance, I recommend the free version of Advanced System Care. I have tried most of the popular programs and ASC seems to be the best at cleaning/optimizing a PC without causing problems.
Sounds like you have something in your browsers cache and/or in your temp directory trying to phone home sucking up your limited resources...
If this was on my bench, I would install a couple of programs called "CCleaner" and "SuperantiSpyware".
After they finish installing, Run CCleaner first then run SuperAntiSpyware and let them clean up all the junk other programs have left behind.
Also maybe check the cooling fans especially if they are buzzing or rattling, also the CPU Cooler fan and the intake and exhaust screens.
If they are plugged up your computer might be having a "Heat Stroke" problem, if left too long it can be fatal to your CPU/processor.
