    My apps and the rest of my system run perfectly. About a week ago whenever I open a web page it is very slow to load (sometimes not at all). Before this everything was running great (I haven't changed anything since). I am using Firefox (I also tried IE and opera and it still was slow). I ran adaware and spybot and removed all infections. I also ran my registry first aid platinum on the system. I have also tried different DNS servers (I think it may have something to do with this because my internet speed test is always high 7-8 MBs. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    frequently scans either don't detect spyware/viruses or can't remove them properly.

    I recommend download HiJackThis (google it) and run a scan and post your log here. Also press CTRL ALT DEL and see what your CPU usage and memory usage are when idle. But more importantly post the HiJack log.
    Try this:
    go to start->run
    type CMD
    at the prompt, type ping speedguide.net

    It will ping that server 4 times, and show you an average round trip time in milliseconds. Do that a couple times for consistenty, and post what you are getting here.
    But seeing as the rest of your system runs fine, it may be some settings you may have changed inadvertantly.

    when pinging speedguide.net I got some that said request timed out, but when it did work it was saying 65ns for time, and I also attached my Hijack this log. Does anything look out of the ordinary? Thanks.
