    Default Slow, slow internet?

    Chaps, one of our laptops has just started to load websites extremely slow. So slow that it often times out before the page has loaded. A speed test on the others shows nothing to be overly concerned about and I've cleared pretty much everything I can think of. I've even uninstalled chrome and firefox just in case. System scans, defrag, virus checks all completed.
    Any other suggestions?

    Have you connected it to the router via ethernet to test? Also try booting to safe mode with networking. Check it isn't set to use a proxy and have a look if your NIC has a static IP and DNS set or not. You can try 8.8.8.8 as a primary DNS if none is set atm.

    Thank you Mrr Satan. But I have no idea how to find the proxy, set the DNS or what an NIC even is.
