    I'm fairly new with Macs and I'm not sure what is causing this problem.

    About a week ago my Mac started loading webpages very slowly (CNN would take over 5 minutes to load). I have downloaded and occasionally use Firefox and it had the same problem.

    I checked my internet connection and everything seems fine, my other computer (its a PC) is connecting just fine and loading webpages at the usual speeds.

    I found online some instructions regarding Safari loading webpages slow they involved deleting the cache, and then deleting a few .plist files in the library. This seems to work, but with a day or so the problem comes back. Does anyone know what could be causing this problem?

    Sounds like the DNS problem. Try manually setting your DNS servers to 4.2.2.1 and 4.2.2.2.

    The whole range is 4.2.2.1 through 4.2.2.6 inclusive.

    You may as well use all of them -- no need to just pound the first two. ;-)
