    Even I don't try my browser option to clear the cache. I prefer to do it, from the disk cleaning software.

    By doing this you get some benefits rather than using your browser option to clean the cache.

    If you are using any Disk Cleaning Software, you can just run the software, and it will do the task for you in seconds. At the same time it will clean up other temporary files and cookies.

    You can try CC CLeaner or any other disk cleaning software to clean up your system.

    One more thing which could be creating difficulties in browsing is some malware. So do make sure to get a thorough system scan with an updated antivirus. This would give you the current status of your system, and it might as well detect if this difficulty is happening because of any possible threats.
