Hello, I'm hoping someone may be able to help me out. I carefully read the Preparation Guide and started the Cobian Backup; I was unable to download DDS due to compatibility mode (?)
I know very little about computers so I apologize in advance if I do not understand something or don't know what I'm doing here. I have not opened any folders, adjusted settings or deleted any files. I've only performed the two aforementioned tasks; DDS download unsuccessfully. I will wait until given instruction on how to proceed.
Brief description of issues- I notice in the Task Manager my computer will often be at 99% CPU due to Google Chrome. Also, while browsing websites sometimes I've clicked on something -not an ad but a legitimate button within the site- another browser tab opens up of some random online gaming ad. Most always I will be on a site and there's an extreme delay or stall, or it will completely freeze up, and nothing on the page will open or respond. Experiencing random crashes. I use Google Chrome and sites will not properly load, or many of the above mentioned issues are exacerbated when using different browsers (Internet Explorer. Firefox, Chrome).
I found the following information when I clicked on System in the Start menu-
Processor- Intel® Pentium®
CPUG645 @ 2.90GHz
(RAM)- 6.00 GB (5.88 GB usable)
64-bit Operating System, x64-based processor
I hope this is at least helpful to start with; please advise how to better provide necessary information. Thank you.
