Hi All. My computer is quite good. It run quickly. But when I surf Internet, It's very slow. I use Firefox explorer. It run quickly before, but I don't know why it's slow now. Please advise. Thanks ALL very much.

You may have gotten spyware or adware on your computer. Run a good spyware cleaner like malwarebytes which is free from download.com. Also run your antivirus. It could need defragmented so defragment it and clean any old files.

I would also suggest you to scan your computer with an good antivirus and spyware. If you are having any windows operating system then you may try microsoft security essential. It is free and reliable antivirus available from microsoft corporation. You should also check firefox settings and may also try cleaning cache, cookies etc.

try to delete some old files you don't need , it may be eating up your memory space, also do install a spyware or malware like iobit(it also have privacy sweeper) and run a scan then run a scan again . this time using your updated anti virus like eset(its light and its good) after which you can defrag it using smart defrag , last option will be to checkdsk(scandisk) to check if there's need to fix a bad file/sector in your pc. good luck
