Hello,

was your internet faster before you deleted the browsing history? If yes, then you can try system restore on your computer.

System restore can help to back date you computer to the time when the internet was faster.

To locate system restore on your computer, go to Start > All programs > Accessories > System tools > System restore.

Read and follow instructions. You computer will be restart in the process on the restore. After that, try the internet again.

I hope it will be fast again after the system restore. But if restoring the system does not solve the problem, please let me know so that I may direct you further on what next to do.

I wish you good luck.

Did it clear the web cache? The web cache is basically storage on your computer for websites pictures, videos, and other large content. Having it on your computer saves the time to download it. If you have a slower connection you will notice browsing to sites takes longer once this has been cleared.

The two are not realy related any further than some site may have cookies for your session and signing in, I don't think there will be much stored that is used in cache unless you connect through dialup I think it must be pure coincidence.

How to erase most visit pages


If you have Internet Explorer open click Tools at the top of the browser, then select Internet Options. You can also get to Internet Options by clicking Start/Control Panel and look for it. Once you open Internet Options click the General Tab and look down under Browsing History and click the Delete Button. You can also click the Settings Button under Browsing History and have the computer set when it deletes pages you've visited. Look down at the History section and you can change the number of days that you want the computer to keep track of the pages you've visited.

When i go onto facebook the page is just blank


Hi, Margaret. If this just recently started, try to clear the browsing history first. If you are using Internet Explorer, click the SAFETY menu located at the upper-right section of the window and click DELETE BROWSING HISTORY. Make sure that Cookies, Temporary Internet Files are checked/selected and click DELETE or OK to clear them. If ever SAFETY menu is not available, click the TOOLS menu instead, then click INTERNET OPTIONS and click the DELETE button under the BROWSING HISTORY section. From there, you can clear the cookies and temporary internet files and history files. Afterwards, close the Internet Explorer window, re-open it and access http://www.facebook.com again and see how it goes.

Hope this helps.

Hello, gogomajok. It would help if you can provide the exact error that you have been getting. However, if you were able to access it before, try to clear the browsing history first. For Internet Explorer, click the SAFETY menu, click DELETE BROWSING HISTORY, then make sure cookies, temporary internet files and history are selected, then click DELETE. If no SAFETY menu, click TOOLS, then Internet Options, then click the DELETE button under Browsing History section to find the window where you can delete the files. Afterwards, close and re-open Internet Explorer and try to open Facebook again. If you get the same error, take note of it and post it here so we can take a look.

hope this helps.

Some sites the scroll down speed is really slow. It seems like text pages are ok and ones with images really slows the scroll responce down. Any ideas??? Thanks!!


Sounds like you are having problems with your Internet connection speed.You could try some of these tips..
  • Step 1 Click Start > Control Panel > Network and Internet Connections.
    Select "Internet Options."
    Under Check for newer versions of stored pages, click "Automatically." Under browsing history, click "Settings."
    If you're using dial-up, set the number under Disk Space to Use to between 250 and 1024 megabytes (MB). If you're using a DSL or cable connection, set it between 50 and 75 MB. Click "OK."
  • Step 2 Select "Delete" under Browsing history.
    Click "Delete files..." under Temporary Internet Files to clear your browser cache.
    Click "Delete cookies..." to remove all cookies from your hard drive.
  • Step 3 Disable any browser add-ons you don't need. In Internet Options, click "Programs." Click "Add-ons currently loaded in Internet Explorer." Select the name of the add-on you don't want to load, and select "Disable" under Settings at the bottom of the dialogue box. Avoid deleting ActiveX controls as this will most likely cause the browser to prompt you each time you encounter content on the web, such as Flash animations, that use that control.
  • Step 4 Switch to a faster browser. While Internet Explorer is the most popular browser, it often causes pages to load slowly. Download a free browser such as Firefox, Opera or Chrome to get a quick speed boost to your browsing.
  • Step 5 Disable images in your browser. To disable images in Internet Explorer, open Internet Options and click the "Advanced" tab. Scroll down to "Multimedia" and uncheck "Show Pictures."
    To disable them in Firefox, click Tools > Options in your browser window and select "Content." Uncheck the box beside "Load images automatically."
    To disable images in Opera, open the arrow beside the camera icon at the bottom of your browser, and select "No images."
    To browse with Google Chrome without images, right click on the Chrome shortcut and place the switch "-disable-images" without quotes after the last quotation mark in the path of the file.
  • Step 6 Disable active content if you're still experiencing a problem with your browsing speed. Return to the "Advanced" tab in Internet Options. Uncheck the boxes beside "Play animations in webpages" and "Play sounds in webpages."

    Every time I download a video it stops every few seconds


    The cause of your problem is simple: your "cache"
    memory & "temporary internet files" are nearly full.
    This is especially true if you've been watching lots
    of videos or playing a lot of games/music.

    If you are experiencing either: A) slugglish loading
    and buffering, B) "choppy" videos which frequently
    start/stop/start/stop, C) the YouTube dotted circle
    looking like it might spin for ever, or D) videos that
    will sometimes come to a sudden "stop" or freeze,
    that is often a sign that your cache/memory is full
    and cannot take anymore.

    Exit out of YouTube (but not your browser) and do
    one of the steps below. Afterwards, shutdown and
    reboot. Not only will this "free up" your computer's
    memory, everything will be "fresh", and load faster:

    Internet Explorer 6:
    → Tools → Internet Options
    → Delete Cookies → OK
    → Delete Files → OK
    → Clear History → Yes
    → OK

    Internet Explorer 7:
    → Tools → Internet Options → Delete...
    → Delete files → Yes
    → Delete cookies → OK
    → Delete history → OK
    → Close (browsing history window)
    → OK

    Internet Explorer 8:
    → Tools → Delete Browsing History
    [. ] Preserve Favorites (leave blank)
    [x] Temporary Internet files
    [x] Cookies
    [x] History
    → Delete

    Mozilla Firefox 3:
    → Tools → Clear Private Data
    [x] Browsing History
    [x] Download History
    [x] Saved Form and Search History
    [x] Cache
    [x] Cookies
    → Clear Private Data Now
    Google Chrome:
    → Tools (wrench) → Clear browsing data...
    [x] Clear browsing history
    [x] Clear download history
    [x] Empty the cache
    [x] Delete cookies
    Clear data from this period: → Everything
    → Clear Browsing Data

    Please rate me if this solution works for you

    Thanks......Have a great time.
