  1. My Internet explorer and Mozilla is not working properly. It has become extremely slow. Google chrome is working fine.
    My laptop is lenovo Thinkpad E431, 64 bit operating sys. It was actually windows 8 but I update to windows 10.
    Is there a way to fix it?

    CAREFULLY go through each browser's settings - - both support Block Pop-ups

    Network Sharing ->change adapter settings
    pick the Lan or Wireless, whichever you are using
    • click Properties button
    • select the TCP/IPv4 and dbl-click
    • ensure both Obtain IP and Obtain DNS are AUTOMATIC
    • click the Alt config tab
    • (*) Automatic private ip and NOT User Configured
    • back on the General Tab, click the Advanced button @ bottom
    • click the DNS tab
    • in the top half, there should be nothing; remove anything found there
    • (*) Append primary, [x] append parent suffixes
    • near the bottom [x] Register this connection
    • click OK
    • click OK
    • click OK
    • click Close
    Reboot

    Sounds like my type of browser lol deal with that all day where I work. So, if you like I can remote in and fix that tomorrow after 7pm shoot me an email (email address removed) or if you like to do it yourself reset browsers \ check manage add ons in IE remove malicious search engines\ addons \ extensions in firefox\ make sure your not using a proxy ... reset host file \ change dns to open dns \ delete temps\ run rkill \ junkware removal tool \ adwcleaner \ then hitmanpro change host file to read only as well !
