Internet slower than usual

I've fully scanned my laptop with Avast, MS Security Essentials, and Spybot Search & Destroy. Some things were found, but even after treatment it's still the same.
The only thing that has changed in my laptop recently is a 'Install new updates and shutdown'. And even after a system restore to before the update, my speeds are still f*cked.
GTAF isn't too slow, unless I have more than one tab open. In fact, if there's more than two tabs of anything open you can forget about any of them loading within the minute (or sometimes, at all). The Google homepage takes like ten seconds to load. GOOGLE. f*cking Google.
I'm on XP. Nothing is hogging my CPU and nothing as far as I can tell is hogging bandwidth. Everything else on the laptop is quick and easy to load up. All I have running with the browser is the anti-virus/spyware sh*t. And it doesn't benefit my browsing when I stop running them.
Am I missing something? Do I need to call up my ISP? Or do I have some f*cking sneaky spyware hiding away that isn't being detected? I'm a dunce with this stuff so don't be afraid to point out something obvious.

Those are the basic things to do to figure out the main source of the problem, because right now anything could be the problem.
