Two possible solutions: 1. In your browser > Tools > Options > Advanced > General > Check “Use smooth scrolling”. 2. If that doesn’t work, try updating your graphic card through Device Manager. Start > right click on My Computer > Properties > Hardware > Device Manager > Display Adapters > Right click > Update. If that doesn’t update or doesn’t work, try updating through manufacturer’s website.

How do I erase chrome history

It is a bit complicated compared to IE.
Go to settings after clicking on the 3 bars on the right top.
In settings scroll down to the bottom and click display advanced settings.
Then go back up the screen and look for clear browsing data under Privacy. Click this and then check all the options including delete history and for which period. Press Clear data.

How do you remove/delete google reader from following me

In order to protect internet searchers, Google set up a notice to warn users that they are visiting a new page when being redirected from the Google search URL. From here a user can see that the browser is redirecting them, and can choose to visit the site or return to the Google search page. Unfortunately, occasionally this notice may appear each time you click on a search result in Google, making it frustrating to search for anything through Google. If you get the Google redirect notice constantly, you can clear your Internet browser cache and cookies to resolve the issue.

Open the Firefox browser on your computer, and click the "Firefox" option at the top left of the program. Scroll over and hover over "History," then click on "Clear Recent History" from the drop-down menu. Select "Everything" for "Time range to clear," and place check-marks next to "Cookies" and "Cache" in the "Details" section. Click "Clear Now." Allow Firefox to delete the information, then restart the browser. Internet Explorer Open the Internet Explorer browser on your computer, and click the "Tools" (Gear icon) option at the top right of the program. Scroll down, and click on "Internet Options." Click on "Delete" beneath "Browsing history." Put check-marks next to "Cookies" and "Temporary Internet Files." Click "Delete." Allow Internet Explorer to delete the information, then restart the browser. Google Chrome Open the Google Chrome browser on your computer, and click the wrench icon at the top right of the program. Scroll down, then click "Options." Click "Under the Hood" on the left side of the browser window, then click "Clear browsing data" in the "Privacy" section. Select "the beginning of time" for the "Obliterate the following items" drop-down. Put check-marks next to "Empty the cache" and "Delete cookies and other site and plug-in data." Click "Clear browsing data." Allow Chrome to delete the information, then restart the browser. b>
