My internet browsing become unbelievably slow in the last few days. I trawled through many internet forums following lots of different advice that others have suggested and nothing has worked.
Today I came across a forum where someone discusses a very similar problem and then it was solved. Apparently they had some exif viewer that was conflicting with the browser. Once they deleted it everything ran normally for them. I thought my gosh only a few days ago I downloaded some form of exif viewer to see how this metadata works. After boring of it I deleted it. It is since then that I have had the problem of slow browsing.
I don't know how to find this. I have the standard control panel uninstall feature, I also downloaded revo uninstaller. Each of these display the programs currently on my computer. But not ones that I have deleted. Is there a way I could see a list of everything that I downloaded and find the name of whatever exif viewer I downloaded last week. I assume the program is gone but perhaps some instructions are still somewhere on my computer and intefering with my browser. I have tried reading many sites about using some power shell commands and I was looking in event viewer although I cannot understand it. Is there a method I could use to find out what program I downloaded and uninstalled so I could try to remove any leftover instances of it with something like Hitmapro.
I have used ccleaner and even defraggler in the last few days but the internet browsing is still very slow.
