Your best support will come from you taking your pc/device to a local repair shop.
You have no computer skills, yet you diagnosed the problem and decided to update ALL drivers? Do you know what drivers you updated and why? Why do you think it is simply a driver issue?
TABs in your browser opening slowly can be affected by many things. You need the help of a repair shop or a friend to clean up your PC first.
And, when seeking assistance, provide information about your system, like:
- Complete processor model number
- Operating system and build information
- What graphics you have
- How much memory do you have
- What model system/motherboard you have
- What model wireless card do you have
- What anti-virus product do you have
- etc, etc, etc,
And, from where did you get all those drivers? Is it your computer running slow, or just your network connection?
How many programs or tasks are running? How many PUPs have you installed, perhaps unknowingly, from other websites, which only make your performance and network speed worse?
Coming here is a bit premature.

Thank you for this report.
Looking at the details, we can see that your computer does not use Intel® Wireless Adapter. Instead it has a Dell* Wireless 1704 802.11b/g/n (single band).
Since the adapter is not supported by us, there is not much insight that we can provide. However, there does seem like there is a slightly newer driver available in your computer manufacturer's support website.
NOTE: Any links provided for third party tools or sites are offered for your convenience and should not be viewed as an endorsement by Intel® of the content, products, or services offered there. We do not offer support for any third party tool mentioned here.

If the issue persists, it may be caused by other factors, such as system corruption or malware. If that's the case, the best recommendation would be to engage your computer manufacturer support, or take your system to a local repair shop.
Alternatively, you can backup any important files, and perform a factory reset on your computer:
