Went on vacation for two weeks and my toshiba satellite laptop wasn't used at all during that time (was off the entire time). Since I've returned it is running extremely slow. Like 10 minutes to open internet browser with it constantly not responding and scripts crashing. Any tips for fixing it. I've trying to be patient, restarting it, etc., but that doesn't seem to work. Thanks.

 How's it work in Safe Mode?  Do you have a lot of tasks starting when you boot up?  What have you done to check for malware?  What browser(s) are you using?  If IE, it's known for being buggy so try Firefox and or Chrome.

 

Good luck.


Everyone with a computer should back his system up to an external hard drive regularly.  :thumbsup:

If it was working prior to your vacation try doing a System Restore using a restore point prior to your vacation.

 

Did anyone have access to this computer while you were gone?

Did the system restore and that seems to have worked. To answer your questions though: No one had access to the computer and it was off the entire time. I use firefox. Not many tasks on start-up, and I had AVG, malwarebytes and superantispyware. Didn't try it in safe mode. Thanks for your help and reponses.

Glad to hear the System Restore worked for you.  If you have not already done so, you need to make a new restore point.
