Default NEED HELP with internet connection

Basically I have a big problem with my interent connection, im fully connected, I can ping any website just fine through CMD but when I turn on my firefox and try and load a page on youtube its very slow, same with any other website.
This is the same for google chrome and IE
and the strange thing is that my other computers and laptops on the network are working just fine
its just this PC

I think this happened after I updated windows but I have got rid of all the updates from that day completely but still no

Things I have tried

Getting rid of every virus with AVG
Reinstalling my network drivers
and restarting my PC and my routers and switches.

any ideas would help THANKS in advance

A couple thoughts:

1. Install and run SuperAntiSpyware and MalwareBytes.
2. Install and run HitmanPro.
3. Try deleting all your temporary internet files.
4. Install CCleaner and use it to clean out temporary files.
5. Download and install a better AV. We recommend Avira, Avast, or MSE. Most of us here are not big proponents of AVG.

Since this is only happening on one machine on your network, it has to be related to this machine and not router-related (or network-related).

Did you happen to make a restore point before Windows Update? I always recommend it. If so, restore back to this restore point.

About the restore point I thought that windows 7 makes it for you ( like it did on XP) but later when I realised that it doesn't

I'll try all the anti spyware and other programs right now

Might be a hardware issue.

Is the network hardware part of the motherboard or a removable NIC?

NIC's are relatively cheap.
