Hi there, I have just done a clean install and my usual browser Firefox 3.5 was very slow at times and then freezing and then back to normal all within the space of minutes. This would happen all night long. I tired Google Chrome and IE but they behave the exact same. My hardware is in good condition and when I go to Speed Test my speed tests ok at 10mb. It is specifically a browser problem because I can listen to music and watch movies without interruption.

As you can imagine it's very frustrating.

I'm using AVG Free Edition and Zone Alarm Free.

I hope you can help, thanks

I manged to find out what was causing the problem: AVG Free Edition. After I stopped that via Services.msc my browsers are all back to normal again.

Strange though as I've been using AVG for a few years and never had a problem before
