Tried Using System Restore To A Time When Things Were Good?

In reply to: Very slow browsers (edge,chrome,mozilla)

Unfortunately, you've told us nothing about your computer such as make and model, operating system used, or what you actually did to cause the problem you're seeing, so the answers will be brief. Basically, go back to a time when things worked like you want.

Of course, you could reset Chrome and Firefox which is easy to do and can be found on Google. But as far as correcting any network settings you may have changed, we'll need more information such as the type of connection you have, wired or wireless, and whether you use routers, etc. The more information you give us, the better informed our answer will be.

Hope this helps.

I use an Intel Core i7 2600 @ 3.40GHz
GPU: 2047MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750
Windows 10, 64 bit

I use a adsl cable on a router (has wireless too)
i already reset all my browsers, deleted all .temp files and caches, flushed dns etc etc
i think i did smth to the dns once that the internet didn't work on cable but worked on wireless.
Or it could be the graphics card...idk.(or some malware, maybe should i try to full scan it with another antivirus, did scan it with Kaspersky)

Basically my problem is that all my browsers act very strange (lag too much, open gifs i didnt open, cant open some pages because of ram usage) , and consume too much RAM
Im an architect working on some projects and basically i cant reset my PC until February!

I just need an idea what might be causing the problem, because i ve tried many things.
Thanks a lot for your reply!

Some Steps To Start With

In reply to: Specs

Since you mention malware, maybe you have an inclination that you haven't described to us, so please click on the link below and follow all of the steps EXACTLY in the order described.

“Expand” the post titled: "Please try this" at the link below:

One that's done, it seems as though the Windows 10 "upgrade" process may not install all the files correctly, or maybe they're damaged, or maybe something else, but running Chkdsk has fixed quite a few of these minor glitches. Try running Chkdsk in "repair" mode to find any damaged files and correct them. Start by opening a command prompt as an admin. RIGHT click on the Start button, choose "Command Prompt (Admin). Once there, type chkdsk /f /r /x, leaving the appropriate spaces between the letters as shown, then press the Enter key. You should see a note that it can't be run till a restart is done, type "Y" for yes, then press the Enter key again. Close the command prompt and restart the computer. Chkdsk will run upon restart and will take quite a while to finish.. Don't panic when the progress bar stays at 10% for a long time. It's fairly normal and the Chkdsk process may take a couple of hours.

When it's finished, it will boot to your normal startup/lock screen and you can login normally and then see if things are working correctly again.

Hope this helps.

What did you change?

In reply to: Very slow browsers (edge,chrome,mozilla)

First, a general critique: If you are asking others for help, it would be preferable if you would write in English rather than that annoying Twibberish.

Secondly, you did not tell us what settings you changed, information that might have permitted us to provide you with a simple solution. But as a general rule of thumb, you should sharply limit your tinkering with settings that you do not understand.

I would do a system restore to a date immediately prior to the date you first noticed the performance degradation. That may or may not solve the problem. If it does not, revert to your browser defaults and see if that helps. There are many other subsequent steps you might take, outlined in other comments here.
