is windows itself slow and whats your internet speed?

If using Internet Explorer download and use Firefox it is much quicker. I would also give Malwarebytes free an update and run just to see if it finds any problems.

I use Ad-block Plus with Firefox. If you were using I/E did you download another host file to use. I found that with I/E it was the new Host file that was slowing it down. So I removed it and it is much quicker at opening new web pages now. Another one to try is command prompt and type in ipconfig /flushdns then press enter on the keyboard. It should tell you the DNS Cache has been flushed if so reboot and see if it works any quicker.
