    If you use Google Chrome and it's becoming slow to load

    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!

    If you use Chrome it is the three bars at the upper right that displays the settings.

    I will have to try these. I just switched to Dish from Charter & thought that was the reason downloading was soooo slow. Of course when I called Charter to cancel, he said that Dish wouldn't be as fast & a guy I know kind of shock his head when I mentioned I switched to Dish. Was a little cheaper.
    Thanks for info....

    Since you are all giving such great answers and advice I'd like to ask about experience with Windows 10 Or should I start another thread? I'm really worried about what it will do to my current files if I update. Lost in tech land, I am.

    IF you are happy with Windows you have why update? Windows 10 will be around for a long time, wait until you need a new computer. Your files will be fine if you do update though. You can always upload your files to store in a cloud online and never have to worry about losing them.
