I have a perplexing problem running my Chrome browser…
When I open a new tab, and type in a website address, the lookup is very, very slow.
There can be a delay of about 20-30 seconds before the site actually starts loading.
Some of my observations are as follows :
There is a long pregnant pause, then eventually I see "Waiting for xxx" [where xxx is the web site I have typed in". At this stage the pages loads at normal speed.
Once a site has been loaded, if I hit F5 to refresh the page, there is no delay.
It is not slow internet – if I use another browser (eg. Firefox), there is no delay.
Similarly, I can ping a web site from command prompt and get quick responses.
I have turned of phishing etc in Chrome.. so that functionality can't be the cause
Maybe I have spyware in there somewhere???
Any help will be much appreciated,
