Morning All After a bit of advice - my laptop was whizzing along on the internet quite merrily last week, no problems at all. Now, when l go to open up on explorer (or any other website) its practically dial up speed, if it opens at all! You tube etc is a no go, unless l wait 10 mins for a 10 second clip to download. The laptop is a HP, running windows 7, Avast AV, Malwarebytes. It has ran faultlessly with this configuration for 6 months with no problems till now. I know its the laptop and not my connection as the Frau's laptop is next to me and is running rings round mine. Ive updated everything, deleted all history, scanned etc.... l'm at a loss as to what is slowing it down. Any whizz kids out there that know how to resolve the problem?
