Thanks for the suggestions. Sorry I took so long to get to them as I got side tracked by a hospital stay. I have scanned for both viruses and malware numerous times and came up with nothing. I did replace my hard drive too as I also suspected that could be the cause...nothing! I'm starting to lean towards my cable modem, wireless router or even Comcast's cable drop as it's not only my computer but also my wife's that is loading so slow. Even my laptop is acting the same way. Any thoughts along this line? I welcome all ideas as I'm running out of my own!
