Mind does, it does a lot of tricky stuff, I try to troubleshoot it. you know sometimes I will get phoney virus Scan, like adware, it looks like adware but it is not. that is how I know that happens. bO dont know much about computers, but I am learning. Last night it took 4 hours to clear cookies, does it take you that long, my computer is slow for one thing.

Wow. It never takes me that long to clear cookies. I do it pretty often though. Do you? I run my adware and spyware protection every day to get rid of spies on my computer. Do you do that too?

Hi there. That could make a small difference with the age of the computer. I have Windows XP on mine. Have you used disc cleanup and defragment?

My computer acts weird sometimes, but I just do a virus scan and threaten to throw it out the window and everything seems to fall in place after that. I hope you don't have a virus.

to keep your computer at its top performance delete the temp files and the browsing history the cookies won't speed it up or slow it down. another thing you can do is defrag your computer daily sometimes even twice a day. for win xp to delte the temp files jsut go into search and type in *.tmp then delete every file that it will let you delete. if you have windows vista than you have to open internet explorer go into tools and go to delete browser history. do these things and your computer will run faster. i learned all this from my brother who is a computer tech and a computer programmer.
