    Might help to stop using Internet Explorer. I make no claim to expertise but in my experience any problems with browsers seem to be down to using IE. (I only use Firefox)

    Try clearing your browser cache. That might help. But downloading firefox will enhance your internet experience:thumb:

    The only good thing about Internet Explorer is it's ability to enable users to download a decent web browser. :thumb:

    We get this message when our pc crashes & goes to default settings - always easily solved by sorting the calendar date (usually in bottom rh corner & right click to amend) as ours goes back to 2011! Hope this helps.

    Having just a little IT experience I use all three browsers.

    1. Chrome for speed - It's a lot faster on 'simple' sites but doesn't support some features and can incorrectly display some content. Anything supporting using remote access (logmein, teamviewer etc) is light years faster under Chrome)
    2. Firefox for 99% of everything else - It supports the full function set. Be very careful which plug-ins you download though.
    3. IE for the very few (mainly Microsoft) sites that will not work with either of the above.

    The speed issue could also be caused by many things. Make sure if you are using an anti-virus you are not also running Windows defender. Check your disc and defragment it if more than 50% full or more than a year or so old. (In My Computer, point at your drive, usually C:/, right click, properties, tools, defragment.)
