Howdy,


This problem started a couple of days ago. When I click on tabs regardless of the web site, I get a slow/ no response sometimes.

In other words, while on Bleeping Computer(example) and I click on a tab, nothing happens. I may have to try 10 times until I finally get a working response.


Example: If I click on re-fresh, it may take 5-10 times (left clicks) until I get a response.


I have a wireless mouse and put new batteries in it.



Maybe the Mouse is worn out ??
Thank You for your time.


Dennis :thumbsup:

Have you tried a different browser?

Firefox

Also, can you post full system specs? Processor, RAM, etc...

Hi DennisH,

What happens when you click on files and folders? Does it respond in the same amount of time? If yes, then possibly your mouse has problem.

Have a nice day :thumbsup:

Thanks for the responses.

As a test I clicked on Start and then clicked my Documents. It took 9 clicks to get my Documents to open.

Those are not your system specs that would be your operating system environment.

Your system specs can be found via running dxdiag via start and run telling us what you see on the first tab or by downloading: Speccy
