A couple of weeks ago a re-install of windows 7 was done to my computer and now it runs like crap. It takes forever to connect to websites and or open pages. Most times when clicking on a link it;s like it's a dead link because I get no response. I've run anti-virus (everything okay) as well as malewarebytes with nothing outstanding. Please help. Thank you.

** To get rid of Avast SafeZone, go to Uninstall or change a program in Control Panel, click on Avast, click on change and then disable the SafeZone browser plug in from there.
 
Regarding the other scheduled updates, apart from Windows and your AV protection nothing should be allowed to auto update, some of the scheduled update checks will also affect your internet if you happen to be online when the updates are scheduled.
 
C:\Program Files (x86)\Norton PC Checkup\Engine\2.0.5.60\ccSvcHst.exe This is a junk program, see review here

"...89 °C Your CPU is overheating, when was the last time the notebook was cleaned out..."

Consider getting and always using a usb-powered external cooling fan assembly [one giant fan or twin fans].  I've been using such for both of my laptops; laptops can get quite warm, however, no more sudden shutdowns or "hot-running".

Hello!

 

I'm sending this note so my issue won't be closed. I have been in the hospital these past three days. I am home now and as soon as I can I will answer your reply. 

 

Thank you,

Please look after your health first and do not worry about your thread here, we appreciate you getting back to us and understand there may be a delay between replies, no rush here but hopefully a speedy recovery there  :thumbsup:

 

Getting those temps down should be done first as not only does heat affect performance it also severely damages hardware, an example cleaning guide here

 

Tip

 Please avoid adding multiple posts while waiting for us to reply to your last post, edit your last post to include anything that you wish to add, this will ensure nothing gets overlooked which can sometimes happen if a thread has more than one page.
