@MichaelKjörling Np. I've tested with -a, it looks the same. I've uploaded a flash video to www.fastswf.com/u7ODmQ8

@EliadTech I've updated the counter statistics. The DNS slowdown was recent but I only realized it later since my 2010 laptop wasn't fast to begin left. I remembered there was a huge Windows update with 10+ items a week ago? HDD was changed less than a year ago. No change to BIOs or driver since 2 years ago. I've also tried connecting to the LAN port, same result. Autoruns gave a lot of info, not sure how to interpret? Again, I must emphasize that it's erratic - sometimes there's no delay at all. I've posted a trace of PING.EXE by HookShark here - postimg.org/image/t154vmu3b

@MichaelKjörling Apologies, I've tried to edit but I think I'm messing it up the more I try to edit. So I just removed "EDIT 1" and "EDIT 2". I saw others doing it and thought it's useful for adding additional info. By "ping [domain] is very slow but nslookup is instant", I'm referring to the delay immediately after issuing PING, before the 'Pinging google.com [74.125.130.101] with 32 bytes of data:' line appears. I suppose this is the name lookup. I didn't find the switch to disable statistics.

Oh, I forgot to mention an important point, sometimes the delay disappears when I test PING but comes back after I reboot or perhaps after sometime (this I can't confirm).

Just to let you guys know that I've also removed Bonjour as it was installed by iTune and loads into memory.

@EliadTech CHKDSK didn't return any error. I've posted the Windows performance monitor results.

@Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Putting 127.0.0.1 localhost back to the HOST file and changing to Google's DNS server followed by ipconfig /flushdns don't help. It appears that whatever is holding it up happens before the host file and DNS server lookup.

@Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 I've tried MSConfig. Disabling all 3rd party startup programs (except for those that came with the laptop) don't help.

@EliadTech Yes, I forgot to mention that.
