Is your web browsing slow? If yes! then it seems that problem is due to slow internet or browser.

Apply these points to solve your problem:-

- Remove extensions of browser.
- Clear history & cache.

Slow internet speed

your internet may be slow due to following reasons
- Your ISP (internet service provider) may be having issues with routing signals to you.
- Your browser memory cache is so full, your browser has to slow down to allow for its limited hard drive space.
- You might have spyware/malware infecting your machine, and secretly using your Internet bandwidth.
So You need to optimize browsers and internet connection.
- First of all update the browser
- Disabling The Firewall
- Remove unwanted tool-bars and plug-ins
- clear temp files
- Deactivate background running services
If you are unable to perform above tasks then use a single utility tool like PC Fresher that will not only fix windows errors but will also optimize Internet.

My 2006 Ford Fusion has issues. When driving, if you take your foot off the accelerator, it jerks so bad and slows down...I mean JERKS... as it slows down, then when you want to accelerate again, it sticks...

Most likely issue is your accelerator position sensor. Recommed you remove it and test with an ohmmeter. I don't have the pinout, but there are only four pins. Find the two pins that have a change in resistance when the arm is rotated. The resistance should change smoothly as you rotate the arm. If it jumps around, replace it. Cost is about $75.

Why should I change my browser to Firefox and how would I go about it anyway. I don't know how to do that. My computer is incredibly slow, would it help that in any way?

Firefox's original claim to fame was that it didn't support ActiveX controls like Internet Explorer does. As a result, it wasn't as easy to get viruses and other malware from malicious websites. Also, when it first came out, Firefox offered features IE didn't have then (such as tabbed browsing). It was leaner and faster than IE. But later versions of Firefox have (in my opinion) gotten bloated, and (I hate to say it about a Microsoft product) IE has improved its operation. I'm not sure that changing from IE to Firefox is the big deal it used to be, unless you just want to get away from Microsoft.

You can read all about Firefox at their site here. If you decide you want to try it, you just have to click the download tab, install the program and start using it. There's no reason you can't have both browsers on your computer so you can compare them.

As for the computer being slow, your browser won't help that. The browser is just a program that displays web pages, but doesn't have anything to do with the routine operation of your computer. The slow computer is an issue that needs to be taken care of separately.

There are several things that can make your computer slow. Number one is memory (RAM). If your computer is a few years old, it may have as little as 256MB or 512MB of RAM. This is barely enough to let Windows run, and it's all the manufacturers used to install. If your computer doesn't already have it, you should consider installing at least 1GB or more if the system board supports it. Giving more memory to Windows is the easiest way to gain some speed since it lets Windows work more efficiently.

There's also a chance you have some malware at work on your computer. Slow operation and weird behavior when online are often signs that something's running that shouldn't be. A program like MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware can scan for and probably remove anything nasty.

Some general housekeeping would probably help a bit. Uninstalling unused applications, cleaning out temporary files and your browser cache and defragmenting your hard drive are all helpful maintenance steps., a site devoted to helping get rid of malware, has this page which explains some of the causes of and fixes for a slow computer.

As a last resort, you can reinstall your original factory software if you have a recovery disc set, or put on a fresh copy of Windows. Sometimes, if your computer has been infected with something, or something in Windows has gotten badly corrupted, it's the only way to completely repair the system. But it's inconvenient since you lose everything, which is why it's the last resort.

Thanks for using Fixya!

Scroll Issue

This is a very interesting problem.. Normally I would say the a router could not cause this kind of problem, but if the page is still loading, it could be possible.

When this happens, has the page finished loading all ready? The little circle of dots spinning in the top right of the browser if you are running firefox, will tell you if the page is still loading. There will be a similar icon for Internet Explorer too.

If the page has already loaded completely, then there is no way a router could cause the slow down. If you used the install CD that came with the router (no necessary by the way) then it could have loaded some "free" software on PC and this software is now slowing the browser down.

Slow to fast battery drain problem when engine is off.

If you connect a 12VDC test light in line, between your + battery post & + battery cable,(cable off battery obviously) the light will stay lit brightly as long as there is a draw. Keep in mind your radio will cause some due to memory function, clock etc. Pull stereo/radio fuse to eliminate that draw, then start removing fuses, and putting them back, watch light. If it dims, or goes out, you've found the source of your current draw. I have had to resort to pulling them all,(after making notes for anything I needed to remember about where they were) to get light to go out, then re-installing one by one & watching light. When it comes on nice & bright, note which fuse slot, and pull it back out and continue on, in case of more than one draw.
