Google and MSN Bing search engines are extremely slow to open when selected. I have done a spyware and malware check and nothing has been found. Can anyone tell me if there is a cure for this problem please. ?
I picked up the recommendations you gave someone else a while ago who was also having trouble with slow MSN and Google search engines.and downloaded CC Cleaner and ran that, also De Fragger. It's been running all day and has only just arrived at 2% defragged with another 2% to go. It is telling me it will take a day to complete the exercise! I also have Chrome installed now so if and when this defrag comes to an end and if I am still alive, it will be interesting to see if there is any difference.
The computer was running all day. evening and I left it running overnight too. It finished the defrag round about 5-30am this marring (18 /02). I will certainly keep it up to date once a week in the future as I don't want to go through all that againg. I must say, the machine is working a lot faster than it was so thanks for your help and advice. I haven't tried to open Google yet or MSN so it will be interesting to see what happens there.
You said for me to click the box next to File Name to select the fragmented files. I don't have a box like that so I have attached a screen shot so you can see what I do have. Have I got the wrong end of the stick here please??
Just a friendly FYI even if this isn't the case, but if you have a SSD drive you absolutely never want to defrag them. SSD do not suffer performance problems due to fragmentation and defrags will severely reduce the life of a SSD drive. SSD do see performance issues when they are extremely full though due to the nature of how data is written.
