When I log onto the computer I can go to the internet and get a page almost instantly. I can browse for a while. Then it will start to become slow. It then says "Page cannot be displayed"
This has been happening for approx. one week on both computers in my house. One is hooked up wirelessly, the other wired.
The following are the steps I have taken:
1. ipconfig /flushdns
2. cleared cache and cookies (through browser and with program TFC)
3. Ran HitmanPro
4. Restarted modem and router
5. ISP "reset signal"
6. Cleaned inside of computer
7. Removed all but necessary startups from msconfig
8. Disabled script debugging
19. Removed ctfmon.exe
I am not sure about number 10. I did this in cmd in safe mode and it seemed to me (an average next door girl) that it was simply copying over a fresh file and not deleting but what do I know?
Please help. Please note: I do not have antivirus. I haven't had it because I have no idea which one to get... (we should prolly tackle this after you help me with this.. moving on then.. ) Also, I have been using Internet Explorer on this computer and google chrome on the other. I have quite a few add-ons. I can disable but not delete them. One of them is ASUSTek_syscntrl Class. Perhaps these addons are the issue?
Thanks for your help and patience. I will do my best to follow your instructions well.
