Re: Browser Issue?

One thing you could try, is to go to Control Panel--> Programs and Features-->Turn Windows features on or off.

Then Un-Check "Internet Explorer 10" box, then Re-Boot and go back in there again and turn it back on [more]

Re: Browser Issue?

I forgot to add some details. Each computer is running Windows 7 Pro. I have reset the IE settings, cleared all temp IE files, cleared browser cache. I don't think this was caused by an update because the last updates were a week ago. I guess I need [more]

Browser Issue?

Re: Computer Slowness - Revisited

Just a thought, ... when your machine slows down, is it 'hot'? Graphics card could be overheating with summer temps and a fan that is just so-so.
If so, maybe test by putting a tray of ice-cubes close to the air intake. Give it a few minutes, and [more]

Re: Computer Slowness - Revisited

Mike... when trying to isolate the problem, one needs to do the trial-n-error thing to tell which specific process is causing the problem. If you never do this, you'll never know... you can only guess.

Could also be that a warmboot is needed [more]

Re: Computer Slowness - Revisited

Stop ONE program. Restart it and get it back to the same current state.
Repeat for other programs you are running, until the problem seems to be fixed.

Re: Computer Slowness - Revisited

1. It is only when the trading program and spreadsheets are opened that slowness begins to find its way to the computer...not immediately but over the next hour or so. If I do not open the trading program and spreadsheets the computer is normal and [more]

Re: XP-pro reinstall disk.

TK,

Re: Windows 7 System Image

Thanks for the reply. I used it recently and it worked also but not quite the way I thought. I have an external drive which I planned to use for images. After the image backup I created a folder and put the backup in that folder. Windows could not [more]
