Hi

i own acer laptop 6935. core 2 duo p7350 @2.00ghz
320gb (still 50gb free)
4gb ram
nvidia geforce 9600m gt
windows vista home pre sp2


i use google chrome web browser as my default browser. and one problem. that i encounter is that everytime i open youtube videos, or some flash web video, the whole system is getting real slow. i cant really multitask anymore *as i usually browse and do some photoshop or other software*


i was thinking that i am actually infected by malware or spyware.. i used the slow computer troubleshooting tutorial from the forum.
did almost everything (defrag, backup data, uninstall unnecessary applications, tweak my startup list), except the spyware doctor *i think*


oh btw. i just realized this like a week ago. and i didnt really install anything new.
and according to the task manager memory readings, my chrome browser can take up to 100+mb memory.
i dunno if thats normal or not.


anyone got any suggestion that can help me?

That's not really normal, no. Do you face the same problem with other browsers? If you do, its not Chrome's fault.

EDIT: A quick Google search shows that the problem you face is very common. Apparently Chrome doesn't handle Flash well. Consider Firefox or Opera for Flash websites.

You could try actually navigating to the location in the C:\ drive, and manually deleting all files. Then in the add/remove programs click "uninstall" and it should error out and ask you if you want to remove it from the list(and registry, I think can't remember). Then just go to www.firefox.com/ and download the latest.

Why don't you just install Firefox over it anyway? I believe it will overwrite the existing Firefox directory.

If you are having problems uninstalling Firefox (or any other piece of software), try using Revo Uninstaller to completely remove all traces of the software. Even if the application's built-in uninstaller fails (like in your case), Revo will scan for leftover files and registry keys and delete them, if you wish.

Then, try reinstalling Firefox: http://www.firefox.com/

ALRIGHT! thanks all.

am installing as i type this

ok one more thing, (i hope i dont get warnings cause i keep adding my problems in one thread) my laptop tends to get slower after a while.

i checked the task manager, everything seems fine. *not that im an expert in checking the task manager* chrome is doing its memory sucking activity *2tabs, it cost me 80-100mb memory*, my rhinoceros program (well, its a 3d software, so i excuse it for eating 200mb+ of my memory). oh, and i already killed almost all software on the traybar area there.

so, correct me if im wrong, is the physical memory percentage is the one making it slow? i mean if it states: physical memory: 60% that means i have used 2gb+ of my 4gb RAM? it seems wrong, i have not encountered this problem with my laptop when i rush my school projects. i mean, i may exaggerate, but, i think i remember i opened photoshop, rhinoceros, and illustrator all at once.. and it seemed fine.

OK.

any comments, or warnings, just shoot me with replies! k,thx,bye!!!! love you all! muaccchhhh
