My internet and my computer is usually very fast, except when it comes to one thing: Facebook. Every game I play, any webpage I open runs very smoothly and quickly, but when it comes to Facebook, it's very laggy.

When I type in Facebook in the search tab, it sometimes takes up to 10-15 minutes just to get to the website, and when I want to do something on Facebook like play some games or anything like that, it just takes forever.

This has been happening for 3-4 months now. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Have you tried other browsers to go on Facebook? You should perform a cross browser check.
You should also run CCleaner while you're at it.

Can you be a little more precise in what you would like to be run with Ccleaner?
FYI on any Registry type cleaning program.

A registry cleaner will not increase your system's speed or performance, and has the potential to break your registry to the point that your PC is no longer bootable.
We strongly advise that people stay away from any of the registry cleaners out there.

Thanks to Sari for the explanation

Just a note: Before attempting to clean or fix any registry you should always make a backup of it first just in case something goes wrong.

My mistake, sorry.
I meant clean up in the Cleaner tab. I believe leaving everything as default is sufficient enough.

I'm sorry for the late reply, I went to sleep earlier than I thought I would. I'm not sure what it is I'm supposed to do. I'm assuming I'm not supposed to use CCleaner so I won't, but then what should I do?

I don't think I'm using any toolbars, and I'm using Google Chrome.

I think what Rubik is attempting to do is clean up the trash files on your system so I will suggest the following. If there is something else then Rubiks will advise.


Download TFC by OldTimer to your desktop
  • Please double-click TFC.exe to run it. (Note: If you are running on Vista, right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator).
  • It will close all programs when run, so make sure you have saved all your work before you begin.
  • Click the Start button to begin the process. Depending on how often you clean temp files, execution time should be anywhere from a few seconds to a minute or two. Let it run uninterrupted to completion.
  • Once it's finished it should reboot your machine. If it does not, please manually reboot the machine yourself to ensure a complete clean.


Download Auslogics Defrag from the link in my signature below. Auslogics Defrag in my opinion is better because:

It does a more comprehensive job at Defragging
It will actually show you what it is doing
At the end of working it will show you how much speed you picked up
You can view a online log of the files that Auslogics defragged
Please do not run any other Auslogics programs other then this one as they may cause unwanted results.
