Running Windows XP. Internet Explorer 7
Internet Explorer constantly giving not responding message. Pages are slow to load, some never load. Constantly getting Not Responding Message and Internet Explorer becomes completely unresponsive. This problem just seemed to begin several days ago.
Steps that I have taken to help problem:
Updated MalwareBytes and ran scan. I also ran MalwareBytes in Safe Mode. Scans showed nothing found.
Ran scan on Microsoft Essentials. Scans show nothing.
Made sure all Windows Updates are up to date (I have windows firewall turned on and have automatic updates turned on)
I have run a scandisk/checkdisk. I believe it said it repaired one bad sector
I also have AFT Cleaner installed, which I run about once a week
I have no other malware or virus protection installed other than MalwareBytes and Microsoft Essentials.
Computer analyzed and said I did not need to defragment
Only using 25-30% if harddrive
Checked with Internet provider. They said we are having no problems in my location area.
The only program I have installed in the last several months is Skype
