    Hello,

    I was on the internet a few hours ago now and all of a sudden, the browsers began to run incredibly slowly- it takes 2 minutes to load pages, open tabs, etc (including history and settings). Even the shortcut is acting weird.

    I normally use Chrome but IE is also acting up. Anyone have any ideas?

    Additional info:
    -Windows 7, Dell XPS 13
    -University network, everyone else seems to be fine
    -Ran several malware scans incl. safe mode. Used Malwarebytes and Norton. Clean bill of health.
    -Nothing else is affected. Internet is CONNECTED and running normally. Ping also returned normal. Cache deleted, history deleted, DNS cleared (tried switching DNS servers just to see what would happen. No result.)

    Help me, please and thank you!!!

    Update:

    Figured out that the internet would work fine UNTIL I started Chrome, then everything would start crashing. Uninstalled and re-installed chrome to no avail.

    I've got Firefox now but would love to have chrome again. Any suggestions?
