    ... sorry Edge and Brave are comparable in memory, but Brave is faster

    Windows 11 - Regular "not responding" message in all apps.

    Update: I tried testing Chrome, Brave, Opera, Edge with all running same website. Brave is by far the less memory hungry, at task manager. Chrome 430MB, Opera 383MB, Brave 238MB, Edge 237MB So it seems I need to use Brave, with at most 3 tabs open.

    Windows 11 - Regular "not responding" message in all apps.

    Hi I had Windows 11 instability both with Google Chrome browser, and Brave browser. ie <app> "not responding" errors every 2-3 days. So after googling it seems both browsers use a lot of memory, so I tried restricting to at most 2 tabs open at any one time. And I have had no more <app> "not...

    Windows 11 - Regular "not responding" message in all apps.

    Thanks. It seems if I can only have a couple of tabs open in a browser, that makes it a near-useless browser. What about my other issue... My outlook.pst is 1.6GB, which apparently isn't too large to exceed some limit of ~50GB. However every time I have run scanpst.exe to repair the pst, it has...

    Windows 11 - Regular "not responding" message in all apps.

    In attached Sunday 4:09pm, it says Brave Browser consumes 588MB of memory. Is that critically high, enough to cause instability and "not responding" errors?

    Windows 11 - Regular "not responding" message in all apps.

    MS Office is up to date. Brave browser was not up to date, so I updated it. I guess I will wait another 2-3 days to see if I get the chronic <app> "not responding" error with my apps. In the meantime did you check my attachment of Sunday 4:09pm? Is it in order?

    Windows 11 - Regular "not responding" message in all apps.

    Update: 2 more possible causes: -max size of pst is 50GB, so my 1.6GB pst should be fine.... however several times in recent months MS Outlook 2019 says I have reached max size, so I keep having to delete emails or their attachments. Why would it say this limit is reached? When I go to DOS and...

    Windows 11 - Regular "not responding" message in all apps.

    There may be another cause... My outlook.pst is 1.6GB, which apparently isn't too large to exceed some limit. However every time I have run scanpst.exe to repair the pst, it has always come up with errors (refer attached) which scanpst repairs, or so it states afterwards. Can an outlook.pst...

    Windows 11 - Regular "not responding" message in all apps.

    Thanks. The problem with removing for AV suite for 3 days is I won't have protection for 3 days. Do I risk it, or use free AV instead eg AVG? If I remove Browser extensions for 3 days, won't it severely impact on Browser functionality? I have used Office repair before, but the problem comes back.

    Windows 11 - Regular "not responding" message in all apps.

    .... 2nd line should read: So probably not going to fix the "not responding" errors in 2-3 days time.

    Windows 11 - Regular "not responding" message in all apps.

    When I tried dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth, no errors, but very slow re-boot, requiring 3 reboots else PC ran slowly. So probably not going to the "not responding" errors in 2-3 days time.

    Windows 11 - Regular "not responding" message in all apps.

    Thanks for 3 lots of advice. I tried dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth. No errors but I will wait 3 days to see if more "not responding" with Word/Excel/Outlook etc While waiting... My anti virus software is Total AV - is that aggressive? I changed browser from Google chrome to...

    Windows 11 - Regular "not responding" message in all apps.

    ... When I say... I get a "not responding" message at the top, I mean at the top of various programs, most recently Excel when typing, but on other occasions it was when typing using MS Word or Outlook. It is very frustrating every 3 days, because I have to wait around 1/2 hour for 3-4 slow...

    Windows 11 - Regular "not responding" message in all apps.

    In Windows 10, it all worked fine for 2-3 days, then I get a "not responding" message at the top, then all apps fail taking sometime to close down, before I can reboot. I have to reboot 3-4 times in a row else it runs slow. And these are long reboots ~5 minutes each. I can understand one...

    Thanks. I just got more unrelated instability, so I have rebooted. I will have to wait a day or so, to have the mystery box re-appear before I retry.

    Windows 11 Mystery faint box in Win 11

    While waiting I did some googling and found www.systreat.com/how-to-fix-floating-transparent-box-above-the-taskbar-on-windows-11/ "Fix 3": Ctrl-Alt-Del, Task Manager, Processes, right-click on Windows-Explorer, Restart This worked, in terms of removing the mystery box. But it doesn't stop it...

    Windows 11 Mystery faint box in Win 11

    Win11 works fine for a day or so, then it becomes unstable, with a mystery faint box in lower centre of screen (refer 2 attached). I also have a video clip showing this, but it is 15MB and this forum doesn't seem to allow it to be added (if someone provides an email address I can send it). If I...
