Few months ago I downloaded Windows 10.  i can't remember now if I had the following issues in 7 or not and maybe that's why I tried 10? I think so.  I bought the computer online from a city near me, they shipped without CD's for the drives.  I emailed them now but no reply so not sure if they are still around or not.  I am wondering if I need some drive updates but have no idea which one or how to find online.


I use Google Chrome but the issues I have seem to be unrelated to browser type.



-websites show the turning thinking circle and often become non-responsive.  I get popups that say wait or kill... 

-websites show the shockwave flash message at the top in orange colour.. I googled this and followed some instruction that said to delete the pepflasplayer.dll from a folder I found by doing "Chrome://plugins".  But still having issue. 

-my Viber program I use with my family overseas also does not work well, always "not responding" and going to a grey screen, etc.. very very slow. 

-excel and word programs also giving issues.. so now I think its not even Windows 10 maybe?? 

-few times after websites haven't been responding my computer shuts down... I had a message a couple of times on black screen that said "Reboot and Select proper Boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device.    While I did  not get this message during the last week or so I think I could as same issues above stil happening. 


What do you need from me to help start the diagnosis and solution?

 Right-click the Start button and click Device Manager.  See if there are any entries with ! or ? to the left of them.  If so, you need to get the correct drivers for them.  Do you have a Windows 10 compatible network driver for your network adapter?  What version of Office do you have?  You need 2007 or later versions to be compatible.

Make regular full system backups or you'll be sorry sooner or later.
