Brief hangs when on the Internet

Windows 7

When I'm using my PC offline it's a whizz. But as soon as I go on line it's a different story. Straight away, whatever site I'm on hangs for just a few seconds. The little blue circle goes round a few time, like it's loading something. Then the page gives a little jump and it's ok. Until I either turn the page or go to another website. Then it's the same again and again?

It's a bit like trying to watch a video on YouTube, when sometimes it keeps stopping due to buffering?

Yes, but it was doing this before I cloned it and the reason for my cloning was it sait there was a bad block on the other drive. Which I wrongly it seems assumed that it was that which was causing these problems. But now it seems it wasn't that at all, but it has to be something?

A slight corruption due to previous malware? Hope you're not going to use the old drive as a data storage? :(

"Try turning the router off"!

I tried that, I thought you might have sussed it, because initially it was or seemed much better, but sadly it didn't last.

Thanx for the links, I'll give them a look and get back to you with the results.

woodchip , with respect, it can make things worse, if you don't understand the program.

Graphicool1, it's not a browser issue because you say that the problem occurs in different ones. It's also worth mentioning that Windows Vista and later auto-optimizes Internet connections so it's probably best not to try "TCP Optimizer". Your download and upload speeds are perfectly respectable.

From what you've posted so far it seems like there's something running in the background that's interfering with the loading of webpages. Likely culprits are software firewalls or AV programs. To test for this, restart your PC in "Safe Mode with Networking" and browse a few websites. Reboot normally when you've arrived at a conclusion and let us know the outcome.
