    I am running Win 7 Ultimate, Chrome browser, yahoo home page. In the last few days, when I am surfing the web, pages load extremely slow, sometimes 5 minutes or more. Audio is also extremely slow. Any suggestions, as I haven't changed anything that I am aware of. Thanks, Bill

    Hi Bill,

    Because you only mentioned web pages, look to your Internet connection. If you're connecting wirelessly, switch to a wire - meaning connect directly to your router with an Ethernet cable. If the speed improves, then there's an issue with the wireless connection. If the speed doesn't improve then there is a problem with your Internet connection. That requires a call to your Internet Service Provider.

    Here's a link to check your Internet speed. You can post the results here. https://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/

    Greeting and welcome to the forum.

    To add to the information and suggestions that Tony D has supplied.

    1. When was the last time you power cycled the modem/router?
    2. Have you tried clearing out the Cache?
    3. Power cycled (rebooted) the computer?
    4. Are other devices connecting wireless having the same issue?

    To add to the other excellent suggestions, try another browser (like Internet Explorer), and that will determine if the problem is within Chrome itself.
