First, let me apologize now if this topic has come up already...I did search and found similar problems...but not exactly like mine. I have a new computer with Windows 7 64....8 gig ram...i7 processor. When I go online...the first 3 or 4 web pages come up fast..but..the more I click on pages...the slower it gets to load them. It gets to the point that they don't load at all. If fact I have typed this a few times now and lost it when I hit send post..because it just times out. (duh, I learned to cut and paste eventually) I can't add any attachments to an email either..it times out and fails. The rest of the computer runs fine...it's just the browsers. I have tried IE, Chrome, Firefox and Opera..with the same results. I ran all the virus/malware programs and found nothing. I have no problem at all using Torrents...downloading is fine...uploads are almost non-existent.
So, any ideas would be great, and I do appreciate it. :)

Do you have the browser set to open links in a new tab? or in open window? Does this occur during your first surfing session, or after you've been online for awhile (couple of hours or more)? Did your previous computer have similar issues? What is your connection: cable, dsl?

Hi..sorry...have not been able to connect all day. Yes, links in new tab. The problem happens after surfing for a few minutes...it's fine up until I open new windows a few times. I have cable connection.

Would reinstalling Windows 7 be a good idea? Maybe something is missing.

This problem started about 2 weeks ago. I went back even further and did a system restore, but nothing changed. It works fine for about 5 minutes and then it just bogs down. My old XP computer never had these issues. My XP laptop works just fine on the same connection. I'm stumped.

It seems the problem is associated only with browsers if you can use Torrents OK even after the fail?

Torrents use a different method of going out though. Browsers use less direct methods. Since Torrents will work, the connection should be OK, the problem is within the systems TCP/IP stack possibly?

Try running SFC /SCANNOW from a Command prompt to see if you have any corrupt files.

You can also try resetting the TCP/IP stack, see these links and some have other links to follow :

http://www.mydigitallife.info/.....orruption/
http://www.tomstricks.com/how-.....and-in-xp/

Even though they list Vista, it should work for W7.

On THIS PAGE is a link "SG Vista TCP/IP Patch" and if the above doesn't 'fix it', you might want to use that to set some parameters that might work for you.

TORRENTS! Uninstall ALL torrent software. Use REVO.
The fact you have problems in all browsers suggest torrents. Are you still seeding for instance?

Thank you everyone for trying to help me out. From my time searching, there sure are a lot of people with the same problem as me..mostly Vista though. Anyway....I tried SFC /SCANNOW and a window pops up instantly and disappears instantly...so fast, if you blink you will miss it. Not sure what it said. I tried resetting the TCP/IP stack too...same thing...there is a pop up screen, but it disappears before I can see anything. I tried the SG Vista TCP/IP patch and got this:

Vistamike....uninstall all torrent software? Isn't that what the internet is for? ;)
I only use Private trackers and yes, I am still seeding...crawling is more like it..but it is seeding.

Again, I do appreciate all your help. I owe you all a beer. :)

You have to OPEN a COMMAND PROMPT and run SFC from it for it to stay open and YOU see what it does. Otherwise it will not run. Same thing for the TCP/IP reset commands.

That list of commands from Speedguide, you have to put those lines into a BAT file and run that file in a DOS Session. In that DOS session open NOTEPAD, paste in those lines, and save it as SPEEDUP.BAT and then in that same DOS session enter SPEEDUP and it will run.

THanks Irv...yes, I did do that and got this:

You must be an administrator running a console session.

Then you have to run the session as Administrator.

Easiest way, click on the Start Orb, then All programs, Accessories, and on the Command Prompt Icon, Right Mouse Button and select Run As Administrator. Now run the commands in that session.

I suggested this as a process of elimination, you can reinstall your 'favourite' torrent again but it is worth it, trust me.

I am personally against torrent downloads; I repair on a regular basis torrent problems.

VICTORY!! :)

Resetting the TCP/IP stack did the trick.

I can't thank you enough for all your help. It really is appreciated. :)
