....even going to Microsoft for their wireless dual keyboard &
mouse driver was a crap out the other day, got this Chinese
version of the drivers, didn't know it until I went to change
some options and everything was in Chinese and that was
straight from Mircosoft......

....finally I found the original disc and re-installed it....

If they weigh 2 tons each, they sorta defeat the purpose.

I speed them up all the time. That's the most frequent request I get. It's usually the same ol' things or similar things that I eliminate. No need to "hose and close" in most cases.

I would remove it's wifi access and begin to shut down any extra unecessary programs with the task manager a few at a time and check to see if it resolves the problem.
Including IE.

I doubt it's a ram shortage.

I'm guessin, a conflicting update with silverlight, or another update, or a virus.

Mind you.... many virus apps these last few years have become......... frugal.....on updating their known virus signature database.

You can even try shutting down your virus app to see if it helps.

92Roadster ....I ... ......have had anti-virus running in real time
creating havoc on a couple of ours had to change those out,
check for possible conflicts on the system....

...create a new folder on the C:\ (usually the default) and
name it ...chuckA.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}
(copy & paste if you want) do it exactly like you see it even with
the squiggle things, then press enter....after that save it to the
desktop for easy access to the control panel items....

....you can rename the "chuckA" (do not remove the period after that)...part to anything you want...
