Okay maybe not an expert but my laptop takes AGES loading up IE and Firefox after switching the laptop on. Apart from that its fairly quick at most things. What is the reason behind this and how do i fix it. I do regular spyware checks etc.

Maybe FF has too many extensions? Too many extensions will make FF heavier.

is it right after it turns on? like when its booting? if so then goto start>run>msconfig>startup and disable some things to allow it to boot up quicker

Are you close to out-of-range on your wireless network? The signal strength might be low.
So good to see you once again.
I thought that you were hiding.
And you thought that I had run away.

i agree with RPMurph, chances are theres too much **** starting up when you turn your comp on. when i had norton installed, i had the same issues. so if you have norton, maybe thats whats wrong. if not, try disabling something else.

Also, press CTRL ALT DEL and check the usage of your CPU. It should be under 4% most of the time.

Here's the best fix, but it's not for the weak at heart, first you open up a DOS prompt, then you type the following

Format C:\

Then just select yes, and your computer is instantly faster.

In all reality, it probably has to do with the programs and the plug-ins you have. As you add more and more features to a browser it will quickly become a large cumbersome program, and, thus, loads slowly. Your best bet is to trim of anything you don't use.

Aside from that, you may have too many background tasks running, which you can tell from CPU and memory usage.

What are the PC's specs? Probably needs a CPU/RAM/HDD upgrade.

It's hard to troubleshoot stuff when you're not actually there. I'm a trainee IT technician myself.

FF does use a lot of memory, so this can be an issue on older pc's. Try defragmenting your your harddrive for an overall system boost.
