Hi, I looked on other forums to see if other people had the same problems, but none of the solutions listed there worked.
My problem is:
When using google chrome, the loading thing first turns anticlockwise for ages, and then clockwise and the page loads. I have tried emptying cache, reinstalling twice and resetting. Nothing seems to work. It's not my internet connection because IE and Firefox work fine.
Here's my add-ons:
- Hola
- Avast!

OS: Windows 10 T.P.
OS_2: Windows 7
GPU: Nvidia GTX 750 Ti
CPU: 1,8 Ghz

Try this 1.

1) Click on Start --> In search box, type
--> Then "CMD" will be displayed in the search --> Now right-click on "CMD" ---> Select "Run as administrator".

2) Now enter this command

netsh winsock reset
--> Press Enter.

Restart your PC.

Good Luck
Thanks! After restarting and clearing my cache I was good to go!
finally I can surf in speed!

Thank you so much for this fix. I have been chasing a slow sluggish Chrome browser and the "uncheck hardware acceleration" suggesting fix did nothing whatsoever. It been years since I've had to reset winsock.
It worked you are my hero
My Chrome was very slow to load and "netsh winsock reset --> Press Enter."
fixed it. Thanks. (I would have thought google would find an easier fix)
