Hi, my mozilla firefox is so hard to open , and it takes minutes before it opens .. what will i do ?


HI,

Sometimes it depends on your internet connection speed, if your internet connection is slow, even if its not Mozilla, it will take time for a browser to load up. If it's really your Mozilla browser, you can try to uninstall and reinstall it. Click on Start > Control Panel > Uninstall a Program and then look for Mozilla Firefox then uninstall it, restart the computer after, then Open up your Internet Explorer and on the address bar, type mozilla.com and from their website, download the Mozilla browser again. You can try to download Google Chrome as you alternative browser.


Hope this will help...Your response is very much appreciated...

Running very slow


if your machine is a year old or older, and if you have not ran any maintenance types of programs on it, it's probably very slow because of the cache files alone. try opening up your browser, i assume internet explorer or firefox. in IE, go under options/tools or tools/options and find where it talks about clearing your internet browser history files and cache files. try clearing these out. the other thing you can try is a website called pcpitstop.com, go to the top right hand side of the page and click optomize your pc, free pc scan. this scan will take a while, but it will look at your entire computer and suggest things that you need to do. things like delete files, history, duplicates, etc will all show up. recommending suggestions to fix your problems, i always say do as the computer suggests you do. this is a free scan and free solution via there website, i use it all the time. your emachine should be fixed and much better for you after these steps. i hope this helps.

Slow web browser, slow desktop computer. Computer often locks up, often takes many minutes for apps to open. computer just doesn't work with speed it did when new.


For that open browser and go to tools menu then delete all cookies and temporary internet files.
Then go to start menu ->run or
Press windows key + R so you can see run then type in run "%tmp%" without "" then press enter .Then delete all temp files.
Then type in run "prefetch" without "" then press enter then delete all prefetch files.
Then type in run "chkdsk /r" without "" then press "y" then restart computer then it fix error on harddrive .
Then your computer and browser run fast.
Also update your antivirus from internet and scan computer .
Let me know if you need further assistance.

My hp deskdop model -sr2180nx, 32bit,1gb,vista,computer is really slow on startup and for explorer to appear, help please.


Hello markus1234,
I used to have slow start up problems and found a program called advanced system care. The free version works perfectly. Run install and open application. Run the main windows utility and diagnostic and this should help out the problem.

You may also want to try a program like malewarebytes which is free. Alot of the slowing could be due to spyware

Link for advanced system care (Tested virus and spyware free by CNET)
