Both IE and Google Chrome work slowly

by bassinbill42 / December 1, 2015 9:43 PM PST

Hello I am using a Dell Desktop computer:
Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit SP-1, Intel Core Duo CPU E7400
@2.80GHZ 4 GB RAM NVIDIA GeForce 310
I use CCleaner once a week to clean up my cache and my hard drive is defragged at least twice a week. I am using Avast Antivirus. My problem is a slow working browser. Both IE and Chrome are slow loading pages: It takes anywhere from 15 to 30 seconds to for the page to load. It did not take as long for pages to load when I used a previous desktop running Windows XP. Any advice?

Thank you. I defragged the hard drive, did a disk clean up and will do what you mentioned about resetting the DNS.
Many thanks!

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
