Hi.

Recently I've been noticing my CPU usage going up to 100% when I open my Firefox. It lags and loads sites very slow. It also happens when my brother uses his Runescape Bowser program. Hopefully G2G can find the problem. :)


Thank you so much for your help,

Rachel

I'd like to add,


The reason it's loading slowly might not be from your PC but your internet speeds.


Mr. Freeze is right, and I suggest you take a look at this topic it wouldn't hurt to do some things mentioned in this topic for your PC:
