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.
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?
