My wife has started to find her Windows 7 machine is running very slow for web browsing. This seems to have come on over the last few weeks, previously there wasn't a problem.
It doesn't seem to be any different using Opera or Firefox, Chrome just crashes the moment she tries to run it.
As far as we know the drivers for the machine are up to date.
When we ran Ubuntu off a boot CD it was lightning fast so the network and hardware seem to be fine, it just seems like there's something going on in Windows that is getting in the way.
Changing Antivirus ( AVG ) and security settings doesn't seem to make a big difference. Process Explorer doesn't show anything untoward going on in terms of resource usage.
I'm almost out of tricks- what should we be testing or exploring next to close in on the problem? Chrome seems more vulnerable to problems with networking so I'm wondering if somethign could be up with drivers, but windows thinks they are up to date.
