Why my suddenly slow connection?

For about the past week, my connection has been abnormal. And by this, I mean things(YouTube, images, forums, etc.) are loading more slowly than they should be.

There's a second computer in the house hooked up to the same router as mine is, using the same connection, and it's perfectly fine. It's just my computer with the issue.

I've already unplugged and replugged everything from the router to reset it, unplugged and replugged everything from my computer and checked for viruses/spyware. Everything is connected correctly and I have no infections.

The only thing I've done differently lately is cleaned my computer with a can of compressed air. So, could I have blown something outta place by accident or something? I can't think of what else it could be. I've done absolutely nothing else to my computer, hardware or software-wise.

You could disable then enabling your network connection and also running Ccleaner and clean your system and registry. seems its just an issue with your computers/browser performance

Download Malwarebytes Anti malware free edition and run a scan. How many processes are you running at boot?

How do I disable/enable my network connection?

I have cleaned my computer. Forgot to mention that. Did a defrag, too.

I already use Malwarebytes and yes, I did scan with it. No infections.

21 processes. I already have unneeded things disabled.

^Could this be why? My PC doesn't say that it's connected to 2WIRE563 like the second PC in the house does. Should it?

Maybe it's silly to think so, but I can't figure out what the issue could be so I'm just guessing at this point.

the ping speeds are essentially the same, I think it might just be your browser. Go to this webside and run a speed test on both http://www.speedtest.net/. also try disabling your antivirus software

Results are the same for both PCs.

BUT! I think I've found the issue: AdBlock. Whenever I pause it, things load correctly. When it's active, that's when it's slow. I don't understand why AdBlock would suddenly slow things down for me. I've been using it with no issues for the longest time. Anyone have any idea why AdBlock would be causing these issues?

Ad block sometimes block images on certain website because they have different url, I would advise you to uninstall adblock how exclude it from the sites you go on frequently

Welp, I'll select the best solution now that I know what the issue is. Sorry that I took you all through that over a darn browser extension. But thank you nonetheless. =D
