My IE Browser has slowed down

  The Brown Rock 17:09 23 Apr 12

My granddaughter (8) having downloaded some "fun games" to my computer after which I found that Explorer had slowed down considerably with a very noticable time lapse. My computer noted the browser problem and flagged three addons that might be disabled to help matters. While this was a help I feel that there could be further improvement as I'm still not happy with performance. Any suggestions as to how I might improve this situation and how I might go about it please.

If I were you I would scan with anti malware. Good ones are Superantispyware and Malawarebytes- both free.

Thanks John, I downloaded SuperAntispyware,; it found 88 infections or tracking cookies. More importantly it found 4 pups that I believe came from the "fun games" with advice for immediate removal. After a reboot I'm happy that everything would appear to be back to normal Thanks to you John and PC Advisor for the sound advice as usual.

Glad it worked. I would run it regularly. Could you Green tick on the right if you have solved it?
