Having trouble logging into web sites.I have short cuts to three bank sites plus several web sites I visit avisit a lot.When I now click on the short cut it starts to open and I get a blank page and the progress bar goes to one segment and then stays there.I was surprised I managed to get into PCA it took me about six minutes.If I try to get out again by clicking the cross in the top R/H nothng happens I click again and the cursor changes to the egg timer and it says at the top not responding and the only way to exit is by rebooting the PC.anyone any ideas.

IS it just the web that's slow or is it slow to boot and open any sort of programs?

GrandDaughter had problems like that and it was her hard drive on the way out.

I take it it runs not to bad in safe mode.

If you are going to run chkdsk at any time tick both boxes and see if it finishes the scan.if so probably not the hard drive.
