Go into Task Manager (ctrl-alt-del), find the Processes tab and sort them on CPU% (descending, the largest on top). Then go to a web-sites and see what programs are using how much CPU during that 2 minutes it takes to load it.
Post your finding (and tell which websites it were and which browser she is using).
I have been trying to fix an issue with a friends computer. Problem is I'm not very computer savvy :S So that's where you all come in I do have some knowledge of computer's and usually catch on pretty quickly. Basically I have been noticing my friends comp has become increasingly slow over the last week I have scanned with AVG and found a change in the following:
Shell32.dll, kernel32.dll, hosts, user32.dll, ntoskrnl.dll
I have tried searching for the shell32.dll and found it only to be in the C:/windows/system32 folder as someone recommended in another post I had read on here..Those are the only items showing in a complete scan of the system so I have no idea what is causing this..Also she has been noticing an increased amount of pop ups even when explorer is not running? I believe they are CID or CDI pop ups. Either way the comp is extremely slow compared to the past so much to the point where if you go to a web page the comp freezes for a good 2 minutes solid then all of a sudden comes back into order, it has become increasingly impossible to run multiple programs such as facebook and msn at the same time when in the past this was never an issue. Anywho I need some advice to help diagnose the issue as I said I am not very technically inclined unfortunately so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated Thanks ~Cheers Candy
