Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi
Starting from yesterday, both Internet Explorer and Chrome get very slow in responding. Firefox is ok. These are things I did and I am stuck:

1) I restarted the computer. Didn't help.

2) I use Norton anti-virus. Since both failed at the same time, I went onto Norton and manual update to the latest. It was successful, but it did not help.

3) I reinstalled IE, it did not help. I have not done Chrome as it did not help with the IE already.

4) I then go to control panel, device manager to try to update the drivers on the computer. The device manager took a long long time to open. I check the "computer", it said the driver is up to date. I am still doing the others.....slowly.

What should I do?

Thanks

Also, there are a lot of drivers to check, is there any command to tell the computer to check all the drivers and update if necessary?

I notice the following are slow to response in Control panel: Device & Printer, Sound, Device Manager. So there's definitely problem.

I since restored the system back to 8/21 before I have any problem. It got worst. The Control Panel still has the problem. IE is still slow. On top, I can't even open Chrome anymore.

Starting to feel it's more than software problem, starting to feel it's hardware. Is it time to junk this computer and buy a new one?

Have you checked your drives for available space. If there is not much room, everything will slow down. I use "Clean Master" to get rid of unused junk.

Thanks for the reply, I checked, I still have 110G on Drive C. Plenty of space.

I went to C drive and do the compression anyway, it's slow!!! It's been going for an hour and no where close to finish.

Which reminds me that I've been using my computer for over a month now without cloning this drive... Thanks!

I finished compression, I have 118G free space ( got 7G out of it). I had to reinstall Chrome. Things seems to work a lot better, cautionally say it's back to normal!!! We'll see.

It just doesn't make sense, I don't believe 7G extra will make a difference when I have 111G free space already. I did update quite a few of device driver, it took a long time, it did flagged me to restart after a long time. After the restart, I reinstall Chrome, everything seems to work now.

I'll come back when I have more info to tell

Thanks
