If I'm say on Ebay and I'm looking at several things, at first when I click on an item it opens right up but after a few minutes it opens slower and slower until it takes like a minute or so to open a window. If I quit and restart my pc then at first it is real fast again then it starts slowing down. I'm thinking it is something to do with memory usage and I may have to change some settings but I could not find any info.

Thanks, banjomaniac
