Hello LOVEMYPC -

Can you list the versions of all the browsers you have installed ??
Download Security Check by Screen317 from HERE and Save it to your Desktop.
* Double-click SecurityCheck.exe
* Follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.
* A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt; please post the contents of that document.
Note: If a security program requests permission to access the Internet, allow it to do so.

Thank You -

Hi -
For a start please remove one of these installed Antivirus programs. You should only have one installed at any time -

AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 2013
Microsoft Security Essentials


This will not help your performance at all -

Do you just "feel like" F/fox is quicker, and have you compared both to the Chrome that you have installed ??

I use I.E. 95% of the time, and I find it is as quick as any other browser -

Thank You -

The speed of a browser can be affected by the number of plugins, extensions, addons, and toolbars on it. Try running IE with Addons disabled and see if it makes a difference in the speed.

HI,nokojon,With I.E. it would be like it would hang up or pause for quite awhile before completing the next task whereas with F/F
it would go right to the next task without pausing,i removed MSE for now,also the main reason i like F/F is i have 3 email address's
that i use and F/F will bring all 3 up when i log on and let me choose which email address i want to use click on it whereas with I.E.
you have to put in your UN&PW to go emails unless there is a way to do the same with I.E. as i do with F/F,THANKS

Hi -
For I.E. go - Open I.E. > Click Tools (or the ALT button if you do not see Tools) > Internet Options > Content > Auto Complete > Settings > Tick All boxes > Click OK > Apply > OK and you should have I.E. set to, First ask if you wish to Save the Logon and Password, and you will see all of the rest written there -
F/F will bring all 3 up when i log on < < Try and save these to desktop or similar in IE -
Also see above by O-Blossom for help with disabling add-ons in I.E that slow it down -

Please download Junkware Removal Tool to your desktop.
Shut down your protection software (Antivirus) now to avoid potential conflicts.
Run the tool by double-clicking it. If you are using Windows Vista, 7, or 8; instead of double-clicking, right-mouse click JRT.exe and select "Run as Administrator".
The tool will open and start scanning your system.
Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.
On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.
If there is any junk removed you can post the log if you wish -

Thank You -
Small edit to text -
