    Check for proxy server

    Please start Internet Explorer, and when the program is open, click on the Tools menu and then select Internet Options.
    • Now click on the Connections tab and then the Lan Settings button
    • Under the Proxy Server section, please make sure the checkbox labeled Use a proxy server for your LAN is unchecked. Then press the OK button to close this screen. Then press the Apply button and then the OK button to close the Internet Options screen.

    Please download the Fix IE Utility to your desktop.

    Before running the utility, make sure that all your Internet Explorer windows are closed!

    • Extract the contents of the .zip file to your desktop.
    • Double click the Fix IE Utility button to run the tool.
    • Click Run Utility
    • Click OK when you see 'Re-registered all files'
    • Open Internet Explorer and see how it works.

    Then, let me know how it all is functioning.

    Hi - no change in performance unfortnately.

    Some pages are fast to load, such as Google. Others partially load and take a long time before being able to select hyperlinks and enter text for log in boxes etc. Other pages simply time out and do not load at all

    Please copy and paste the following in to Notepad:
    Then click File > Save as
    File name: internetFIX.reg
    Save as type: All Files
    Location: Desktop


    Once saved, Exit Notepad, and double-click on internetFIX.reg and confirm the prompts.

    Then, restart your computer.

    Let me know if this works or not.

    No change again - Google loads within a few seconds and Youtube took 3mins to load. Not sure whether the adverts have any implication as they are the last thing to load before being able to proceed to the next page
