Hello, I get the internet exlporer not responding message very often. I use windows vista home premium intel core 2 cpu T5600 1.83 Ghz 4 Mb ram.

This problem has become more and more frequent and now it is to the point that I can almost do no internet surfing. Just today Firefox also started doing the same thing.

I have two separate questions:

1-What is going on and how can I fix it?
2-May be I will want to format my laptop. How can I format my computer? I lost the cd that came with the computer by the way, I think it was for restoring windows vista. If I format, is there a way to restore windows vista again without that cd? (By the way there is a recovery drive D on my laptop, which has about 5gb of data, is that what it is for and I will not need that cd by any chance?)

Reboot computer pressing F8 continuosly, when the advanced user mode page shows scroll down to Last Known Good Configuration this will reboot your comp back to a time when it last worked ok, after this is done download malwarebytes anti-malware free ( the free version is the blue download ) from this link http://www.malwarebytes.org follow the instructions to install, and let it update and run a full scan, if it finds any infections click to fix them and then reboot your comp to enable it to clear the infections out ! :huh:
Let us know how this goes !

If life is not an option then why are we not given the option in the first place !

I could not get past the first step. Nothing happens when I press F8 continuously or hitting it repeatedly either.
