This fixed the problem for me.

Go to settings, show advanced settings, scroll to find System then uncheck the box in front of
use hardware acceleration when available.

Hope this helps someone too.

Are you running Ad Blocker? Quite a few of us have it on our computer so we get NO ADS.

I am having issue with Chrome being slow. Will try your suggestion.

I use Ad Block plus and Ad Block Pro. Both free for Chrome and no ads show here at all except the small ones on the website. Nothing flashes or moves or has sounds.

In Advanced Chrome Settings, you can clear the cache. This helps also.

In the window Run window type %temp% When the file opens, find select all and click on that. Then find delete all and click on that. That will remove all the 'clutter' from your computer. Don't worry nothing will be deleted that you need.

I does indeed work! Now my sites load fast. I asked my BIL, a big time computer tech know it all, why the webpages were slow loading and he gave me the old computer, need tune up, slow processing, on and on speech. I showed him this fix and he didn't have any response. Thank you for that!
