Is there a software site that you download software that searches your computer to see what your computer needs to update or a missing driver? I'm having video problems I think. I open a website and it takes forever to load. I have 100 Mbps high speed internet.

You have determined it's this one PC and others connected to the same router/modem are not affected?

Have you first tried updating the drivers within your system by going to control panel then "Device Manager" or if you do not see it then type in drivers in the top right box,
Next under "Device Manager" you should see "Update Drivers" click on that and then find your display and click on it, then click on the device and see if it says working properly or not, you can right click on it to update the driver or look at the top and it should have Drivers, you can click on that and it should have an option for update.

I will try it and see if it works. I have windows update on and it's been on for weeks now.

You may want to look at this:

Update Driver Booster

I am downloading the newest free version right now
Click on the download and it takes you to CNET page for the download, over 8 million downloads

I have been using their products for two years - since someone on this forum suggested
"Advanced System Care"

You recently posted issues with malware and adware, is this on the same computer? If so, I doubt it is a video driver making webpages load slowly.

Have you tried another browser? Often times Internet Explorer is the issue. I'd try Google Chrome.
