Hi there- I'm having a slow time scrolling through my IE when a web page comes up, it's like it just hangs for about 5 seconds, and trying to switch with other established tabs is difficult at best. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks, Drew

How many pages or tabs are open? Do you use new web pages on separate windows or new tabs only? Please post your computer specs and model.

What version of AVG is installed? Do you have AVG with firewall running? Windows also has built-in firewall and both might be running at the same time. According to a link, you must unchecked Display AVG advisor performance notification in Advanced AVG settings/System tray notifications.

My AVG version is 2012.0.1869- I do not have windows firewall on, only avg. Do you suggest the other way around? I unchecked the performance notification as you've suggested. Will see if that makes a difference. thanks

So the CHKDSK scan has come up 2 times yesterday- that has never happened before. Found nothing, and windows started just fine after it's 3 stage scan. I'm not sure if this is something that I should be concerned with? Why would it be doing this all of a sudden?
Thaks in advance,
Drew

the chkdsk only happened 2 times. Basically my conclusion is that Google Chrome is the way to go & IE sucks. Past ie frustrations has something to do with resolving proxy issues.
I'm out- just wanted to circle that wagon. thanks!
