    Try connecting a different device to the same physical router port and compare performance.

    Problem PC: Please go to Internet Options.
    I can't download anything with browsers-1.png
    Check you don't have a proxy set.

    I can't download anything with browsers-2.png

    Set options to default (bottom 2 buttons).

    You can eliminate your hardware as a possibility if you boot your PC from a live boot disk (freely downloadable iso's - Google), boot your PC from the boot disk created from the iso file, and check download performance.

    No more ideas. Live boot disk check?

    This is where routinely using disk images and system restore are useful so if you notice an issue and it has recently occurred you can get back to a good state.

    Good luck..

    Right-click on the Start button --> Windows PowerShell.
    Run the following line of commands and see whether a small testing file will be downloaded onto your desktop.

    Code:
    (new-object System.Net.WebClient).DownloadFile("http://www.cec.vcn.bc.ca/cmp/images/homep.gif","$env:homeDrive$env:homePath\Desktop\Testing.gif")

    The size of the GIF file is just 6 KB.

    Run the following long line of commands via PowerShell and see whether you can download Firefox Portable onto your desktop:

    Code:
    (new-object System.Net.WebClient).DownloadFile("https://portableapps.com/redirect/?a=FirefoxPortable&s=s&d=pa&f=FirefoxPortable_87.0_English.paf.exe","$env:homeDrive$env:homePath\Desktop\FirefoxPortable_87.0_English.paf.exe")

    This is a single line of commands. Do not separate it into two.
    The file size is as big as 114 MB. It could take a long time.

    One other thing to check in Internet Options is under the security tab and see if 'reset all zones to default level' is available.
