When signing on and going from one site to the next it take s about four mim.Can someone help me in simple terms ?I'm 82 and had a slight stroke but love my computer and need your help.
Goldy, who is your Internet provider and what type do you have, for example dialup, dsl, fios, cable,?
Can you give information about your computer, age, windows version, how much Ram memory and hard drive space..
You can run this free program to give you lots of information about your computer.

Usually when my computer gets slow, it is the fault of my Internet Service Provider.
I'd suggest you running a speed test at the link below. It doesn't require downloading anything to your computer. Just wait for the page to finish loading, and then click on Begin Test. After it has completed, come back here and let us know what your speeds show for download and upload.
Do you know about how old your computer is? Has it been slow for some time now, or did it recently just get slow?
Good luck. You can do it. Might you have a local friend, neighbor or relative who can maybe assist you?

tried your speed test.I think I found the answer.Thanks
Great! Please let us know if/when your speed/computer gets back to normal.
Anymore my internet service provider is the first thing I suspect and check (speed test) when things aren't running as they should be.
