Scroll to bottom toolbar (bottom of scree) right click select task manager
applications see whats running trying to connect you might uninstall the program if you no longer need it also processes if you see something that should not be there click end now you might have a virus slowing your connection
also you might download and use this registry cleaner it is 100% totally free to use
also install more RAM
you might download a free bandwidth test run it and see what have

Ehh. have you tried using a real browser (i.e. not internet explorer). <-- I recommend chrome
also, restart your modem: tur it off, turn it back on. (unless of course you ahve dial-up and your moded is inside your PC). if you have dialup, your internet will be slow.
if you have cable, you internet will be intermittently slow during peak times.
also, may I suggest  <-- post your results here as a comment.

    hmm... well, your speeds here look normal (ok, your down speed is awesome, if the results are correct, and your up speed is average).

    it could be that other programs are using your bandwidth while you surf the internet: i.e. update utilities, torrent and P2P software, etc. it could even be (though you would probably notice things much worse that slow-loading pages if this were the case) some type of malware.

    have you tried using another borowser?

    if you use another computer on the same connection, is it still that slow?

you can check the "ping" value on many free websites that will give you an idea of where the problem lies.
It could be your phone connection is not good, so is causing bits of information to be lost. As it has to be sent again - and again, it will take longer. Typically it shows as "loading" or disruptions on things like youtube video.

You can also see if it is your browser or something else by running interner explorer for a bit and see if things improve.

It could be down to settings, which could be reset to original spec.

Whenever i tried to access facebook page, the page loaded so slow that even when it finally finished loading, this message error would come out: Error 101 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_RESET): Unknown...

Hmmm... sounds like the prob is in ur ISP speed!

try to contact ur internet service provider, ask them the speed of ur modem, now a days the normal speed is 512 kbps to just view videos in YouTube!

Hope that speeds up everything

Slow loading of internet pages

Empty your Safari and WebKit caches and trash your preferences file. If you don't know how, download a utlity like MainMenu or IceClean. Final step might be downloading a fresh copy of Safari.

You don't mention your connection speed.
