How to fix my Dell PC taking forever to load Web pages?

Hey all,
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 :(

There are lots of different PC boosts you can use. This depends on the specs of your computer. As a technican, I do pc boosts for £30 (lightningfix.weebly.com). If your PC is lagging without loading web pages, then this boost is right for you. If it is just while loading web pages, then you can have a chat with me on my website's live chat in the repairs and pricing section (which you can find in the menu) and I can try to fix it for a cheaper price (£15 approx.)

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.

Cheers!

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:

Thank you for sharing this list with us.
However it does not have Malwarebytes listed on it, which according to some People is a Top tool for speeding up PCs.

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.

RH, I am using all 3 browsers, but mainly Chrome & FF.
And thank you for your suggestion of using this Advanced System Care. Are you sure it is totally free? If yes, I shall download and run it after I run the 2 software suggested by WMT.

Ok, Chrome has an issue of using up a lot of memory. I no longer run Chrome in default mode, but use the --process-per-site switch. The entire target line should look like this - C:\Users\Martin\AppData\Local\Chromium\Application\chrome.exe --process-per-site.

Advanced Systemcare Free (there is a paid version) will do much more than CCleaner. Download it at http://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/advanced_systemcare_10.html.

You'll find your PC will be much faster.

Also, when you run ASC, under "Clean and Optimize" feature, click on Select All (this will check all boxes). Then click on Scan. When completed have ASC "fix" everything. NOTE: the default option will remove all your browser history.

rh, well I have this problem with both FF and Chrome browsers, so of course it is not just a Chrome issue. It must have something to do with my PC resolving DNS addresses, or something like that.
So I am running CC now as per WMT suggestion. After that, if that does not take care off it, then I shall run your recommended ASC, under "Clean and Optimize".
ThanX

Be aware of Advanced System Care, since it is by a Chinese company. And as we know China is one of the main epicenters of all Cyber attacks. Just saying.

Vienna_Boy - that may be, but one of the highest rated antivirus (2015) was from China (though they lost ground in the last couple of years). Just because something is "Chinese" doesn't mean it's a inherently a problem and your generalization is unwarranted. I know the company's history and while it wasn't stellar in the beginning, they've cleaned up their act considerably and now offer some great products.
