    Slow W7 on a Dell

    Hi Jim, Ken is right ..... a clean boot doesn't cure the problem. It just alerts you that something running at normal startup is causing the problem. What you need to do now is go back into clean boot .... select just one of the apps that has been closed and re-enable it. Then restart and see...

    YouTube will not Work for some reason.......

    Most browsers will give you the option of removing your data or leaving it alone when being uninstalled. Chrome will ask if you want to keep your data (Bookmarks, passwords, history etc ) Firefox no longer asks ...... it automatically leaves the profile folder on the system. With Firefox you...

    YouTube will not Work for some reason.......

    I don't see any 'Recommended' links ..... may well be because I use an adblocker (uBlock Origin). I see that it's blocked 3 things..... probably the links.
