Why does my computer become so slow when I go online?

Dumisani February 15, 2011

My PC becomes very, very slow as soon as it is on the internet. I use Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer. It becomes impossible to use PC while online.

    Does this occur if either of the browsers is open or when both are?
    What happens if you close both browser ~ does your system go back to normal?

    Try running your browsers in safemode - for Internet Explorer:
    1. click Start > Run (Windowskey + R)
    2. type iexplore -extoff and hit enter

    For Firefox:
    1. click Start > Run (Windowskey + R)
    2. type firefox -safe-mode and hit enter

    If Firefox doesn't start that way rightclick on it's symbol and select Properties.
    Then in the target path add -safe-mode after Firefox.exe

    This commands will start either browser with all Add-ons and Plugins disabled.
    If this solves your problem start your browser in normal mode and disable the Add-Ons one by one until you found the one causing your slowdowns.
