I haven't been on my computer as much recently for about a month, maybe getting on twice a week in order to complete some assignments online for my classes for probably two hours at most. Before I stopped coming on so much I didn't have this issue really, only when I had too many tabs/applications running. Well, I'm REALLY noticing that my browser will say (Not Responding) randomly, especially when typing(it will go every half sentence or so), and for 5-10 seconds then respond again. It also does it often if I pause too long when typing, when I click, it loads a new page(every few pages), or when I use the scroll bar so much.

It doesn't run slowly to open applications or anything, just when using a browser. Chrome, Mozilla, etc, all of them do it. It's the worst when I type. It's gotten to the point now where it really hinders my computer use, and seems to be getting a bit worse with each use. I updated my browsers when they tell me to, and all of my applications(flash, java, etc) should be updated. I haven't installed or downloaded anything recently.


Any help is much appreciated!

First...install critical updates which are currently uninstalled.


Having done that, do the following.


Please download MiniToolBox  , save it to your desktop and run it.


Checkmark the following checkboxes:

  List last 10 Event Viewer log

  List Installed Programs

  List Users, Partitions and Memory size.


Click Go and paste the content into your next post.
