Hi,

 

I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate and I'm having a lot of problems browsing the Internet. I'm having the same problems with both Firefox and Chrome. Here are some of the problems I've been having: browsers frequently freeze and say "Not Responding" at the top for a few seconds or minutes, Gmail says "there seems to be a problem" on the left hand size and email won't load unless the page is reloaded a few times, Flash frequently crashes, streaming videos play slow, I often get a box appear saying "Page(s) Unresponsive" and asking whether I want to kill the page or wait.

 

I've tried everything I can think of like reinstalling Flash, reinstalling the browsers, disabling Extensions/Add-ons and using the tools in TuneUp Utilities. Please can someone suggest what I can do to improve the performance of the browsers on my computer?

 

Thanks,

Joe

You covered much of what I would suggest EXCEPT for resetting IE to factory defaults: Tools, Advanced, and the options are there.

 

Also, I am finding that while Chrome and Firefox are supposed to be independent of IE I am finding evidence to the contrary. I would do the the Factory Reset of IE 1st as well as download/install/run CCleaner and couldn't hurt but do a scan with my favorite: Malwarebytes.

 

Let us know.

My job has blocked Europe by the firewall which means I can't access this site from the office anymore. So I will barely be here if at all. In case you cared.  :smash:

I did everything you said and it's definitely helped a bit. I'm still getting the problems sometimes, but less than before I think. Thank you.
