- If you don't trust that these steps are safe or that they won't work, than have your computer/laptop backed up so you can restore it if necessary.
Step 1 Update all Windows software
Everything needs to be up-to-date in Windows 7, so update any software that needs it.
Step 2 Choose a faster web browser
Usually, Internet Explorer isn't that fast, but you could choose a different browser from the list below, in order from the best to the least.
If sticking with Internet Explorer, make sure you have updated everything and that you have the newest version—IE9.
Step 3 Use a CMD Prompt Internet speed trick
Once finished with the above 2 steps, go to Command (CMD) Prompt in Windows and enter this code:
It will say DllRegisterServer in actxprxy.dll succeeded.
Step 4 Use another CMD Prompt trick
In the command line, use the following in this order:
netsh int tcp show global
netsh int tcp set global chimney=enabled
netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=normal
netsch int tcp set global congestionprovider=ctcp
Step 5 Changing Internet Explorer 9's options
Open Internet Explorer 9 and go to Internet Options and under the General tab, go to Browsing History, click Settings and check if Temporary Internet Files are at 250 . If not, change it.
Step 6 Get namebench
Go to the namebench website and choose whichever operating system you have installed, then download and install it.
Chose the browser which you use most often and run it. Once finished, it will provide you a DNS server address (e.g. 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206). This is the Open DNS one, which is pretty fast, but depends on where you live—you could have a faster DNS server address.
To add it, go to Network and Sharing Center. Go to Connections and click on your connection. Then Properties and on Internet Protocol Version 4, click Properties and under DNS Server, type yours in.
