Question about Computers & Internet
My computer slows down to a crawl after I open firefox and get about 5 tabs open and start watching videos. Even after I close firefox and defrag the ram it will continue to go slow the rest of the time I have the computer on. The only solution I have found is to restart my computer everytime I wanna watch videos online. I have Avast Antivirus running and im pretty sure I dont have any spyware or adware.
Heres my specs:
HP Pavilion m7480n
OS: Vista Ultimate 64-bit
Processor: PentiumD 930 (P) DC 3.0 GHz
RAM: 4GB DDR2
Video Card: PCI-E ATI Radeon HD 2600 Pro
Power Supply: 500watts
The problem is Firefox...it is a resource hog and they have to fix it. It will not release the ram it allocates for itself even after you shut the program down. You can actually hit Ctrl + Alt + Del and bring up the task manager and go to processes and find firefox there and shut it off. My honest opinion is use Google Chrome...it uses very little resources and is the fastest browser out there and you can import all your favorites, etc. Using firefox and watching videos will bring a decent system to its knees.
