Windows 7: Computer Slowing Down Online Lately...

Computer Slowing Down Online Lately...

Not quite sure when this started, but around 6-8 weeks ago. At the onset when I go online(ie11), everything seems to be quick while general browsing and even playing a vid in youtube or live leak, and even playing my online miniclip pool game. The issue I'm having is that if the computer is left sitting for a length of time(20-30min or more), the computers response time is extremely slow(dialup speed and slower or no response at all). I have done quite a few clean installs in hopes. Everything within explorer is working at it's normalcy. I even went and purchased a new usb wifi adapter to test, but computer is still the same. I used hot cpu overnight to test some aspects of the pc and cpu is fine. Nothing abnormal in device manager. I still have yet to do a mem86 test overnight. I'm kinda leaning toward memory or gpu(I dunno). This is an old desktop(emachines el1300g-02w with 4g mem), but it is only used for basic stuff youtube vids, and online miniclip pool like I had said. No gaming whatsoever. I don't have the $$$ to invest in a new computer. I will be willing to buy a cheap graphics card or memory if that's the issue. Maybe someone can give some ideas about this? Many thanks. Don

Have you tried clearing the cache from your browsers? If not thats the first thing i would try and see if that helps any.

Computer slowing during multitask.. say it aint so..
One of my favorite things about Windows 7 vs it's predecessors, has been the way it seems to handle multiple tasks simultaneously.. Meaning, I could start a file transfer, start a download, and still have a very responsive, use-able machine for basic tasks. I read about the dispatcher lock fix that...
