Ever asked the following questions?|
Why can't I view any webpages?
Why is it taking so long to load my page?
What on earth is causing my browser to respond so slowly?
Many problems with web browsers stem from installing toolbars, add-ons, and
extensions. These problems range from poorly coded add-ons and extensions to
conflicts with other add-ons and extensions.
Installing toolbars, add-ons, and extensions can change more on your system than
just the way your browser looks. Toolbars, add-ons, and extensions can, for example:
- circumvent your computer's security software.
- decrease your privacy.
- change your home page.
- degrade the performance of your browser.
- break your browser entirely.
Use caution when installing any software that you download from the internet. It is
becoming more and more common for previously reputable download sites to bundle
unwanted toolbars, add-ons, and extensions in with their products.
To troubleshoot issues with your browser, you may need to disable or entirely
remove some of these items. To learn how to manage your add-ons/extensions
please click the link below that matches your Operating System and/or browser.
