I'm running a Dell XLS 410 with Vista and 2000 MB of memory. I'm finding that after going to certain sites, my computer slows down and stays slow while Task Manager's Performance tab remains low. I have McAffee Anti Virus installed and scans show no infections.
If I go to CCleaner after this happens, the computer goes back to normal speed so I assume that some of these sites are adding junk to my system and CCleaner is gettting rid of it.
Being I only have 2000 MB of memory, I assume I should upgrade to the Maximum 4000 but being that the Performance tab is showing low usage percentages in Task Manager, I'm wondering if something else is involved.
Obviously, websites use more code than when this computer first came out but I don't know why the computer slows down afterwards once I'm out of these sites other than that garbage is added on but I'm clueless about this.
