The past couple of days I noticed that when I use google, the browser slows right down.
I would restart in safe mode which would reset it.
Everytime I use google, it acts up.
Others?

Seems to be about the same speed as always but then speed on a computer isn't a big deal for me.
The only thing that seems to regulate the speed on any of the laptops here are the laptops themselves.

SuperAntiSpyware Free. Great for catching all kinds of stuff, but never messes anything up. Most people who don't use it (or something similar will have 800-1,500 unwanted parasites of one type or another.

I also use a few other free addons.
-Origin uBlock
-Adblock Plus
-Ghostery

These will eliminate most ads, popups etc.

Strange that it is not an anti-virus. I use malwarebytes. never had a problem with "all kinds of stuff" and I search a lot of places. Personally I distrust links that include words like "Downloading File" especially from an 'antispyware place. Sounds like phishing to me.

SuperAntiSpyware is great. If you don't like it, oh well. I linked to the file download. If you don't like downloads it can be a problem when you want to download something.

When I used malwarebytes it cleaned out some crucial files and messed up my computer. I have some industrial programming it mistook for viruses.

Between Avast free and SASpyware I have been doing fine for years.

When I upgraded to windows 10 I noticed Google got slower. Pretty sure it's a ploy by windows to force you to use Microsoft Edge

Through trial and error, resets, safe mode, disabling extensions/add-ons, the culprit was Adblock Plus.
Replaced it with Adblocker Ultimate.

I don't particularly like links in threads that take you directly to a download. Most of the stuff I download is porn. I liker that.

Google used to have a problem when you use smooth scrolling. Try turning that off in the options
