Windows 7 stops working when I try to use google

My windows 7 pc stops working when I try to use google or bing. The rest of the time it runs slow or hangs. Pc has had a full reinstall and all drivers are up to date. Pc repair guy told me he has hidden IE10 as that causes problems if updates dont arrive in correct order, so,apparently it is IE9 that is on my pc. Any ideas what is causing all of these problems ? Thanks.

Which version of Windows 7 are you using and how much RAM on your PC?

Can't imagine why IE10 has been 'hidden'? If it has had all the drivers installed and a fresh installation of 7 then I'd take it back as something is very wrong with the work carried out on the PC. I assume the repairer was paid for this work?

I believe I/E 11 is out now for W/7 users maybe try that.
