I've noticed over the last few days that Google Chrome is taking forever to load pages; at times the browser freezes up or I get that silly pop up window asking to "wait" or "kill page". It's extremely frustrating...to the point where I'm rather us my phone to browse the internet than the computer.

I have been using Firefox as an alternative browser, which provides a slight improvement...but it's still not lightning fast by any stretch of the imagination.

I've asked for help from bleepingcomputer.com before when I've run into some virus/malware problems, and have had very positive results; I figure it can't hurt to ask again.

The last time I ran into problems, I was advised to install a few programs - MBAM, Spybot, Online Armour, Microsoft Security Essentials and FileHippo's Update Checker. I run all fairly regularly.

Any advice/help would be greatly appreciated. Also, if I have posted this inquiry in the wrong forum, please let me know; I can always re-post somewhere more appropriate.

Uninstalling most protection softwares and making sure all remnants are removed is the first thing I would do. Using only your antivirus and windows firewall is a start.
