That is good since the first one showed corrections and the second one shows everything corrected. :)
How are the browsers working now?

It's weird it works fine at first (first of the day or after a reboot) but if you put it down or stop working for awhile and come back it is slow and laggy.

It's not the just the browsers. Programs are slow to start and now the screensaver is coming on even when I have just been doing something.

Do me a favor and reboot and then go into Safe Mode with networking
Try it for awhile and let me know if the slowing happens again.

I tried that but I have no internet that way. It says Windows is not managing my wireless and the tool that normally does so apparently does not run in safemode.

Well that doesn't help diagnostics then so I guess we have to do this another way.


Lets see what you have in your startup

Please click on
Start and then to Run
Type in msconfig and press Enter
Now click on Startups
Then uncheck everything and restart.
IMPORTANT! In case of laptop, make sure, you do NOT disable any keyboard, or touchpad entries.
If system boots correctly and is running smoothly and faster then we have a startup problem
Try going back into msconfig and check one item and reboot
Keep doing that till you have found the problem or all are finally checked.
Post back with the results
