    Indeed. What gets me is so many scripts running so many animated ads that the machine cooks and cooks good. On my last laptop I could not visit AVS forum. The bottom would get so hot as to burn my lap! Talk about wasting power. It literally pushed me towards installing an ad blocker and then the situation became manageable.

    Mind you, I think they should do what they need to make money. But they should test to see if their site is sucking an entire core i5 processor just sitting there without me doing anything!

    Amir, looks like you also have a problem with Chrome. You shouldn't have that many processes open burning that much memory. That may be another problem on your PC..

    Amir, you are a Microsoft expert. You already know that animated commercials from places like Facebook and Twitter can slow down your PC.
    Multitasking, downloading hi res music, Skype, Vudu, Netflix, burning copies of UHD movies, etc., they can all slow down your navigation. ...Apps running in the background, ...high resolution pictures, ...

    The Task Manager indicates what's going on. ...If someone tries to access your browser, your mouse, your coordinates, your actions, your privacy, ...you are the expert who knows all of that. ...Your Internet service provider, the speed they provide you with, how many more PCs connected to your main modem/router center, all the activities from the Internet, etc., and from all your family. Me I don't know, I'm just shooting ideas. When I have issues you are one of the top people I would ask for the solution, and among few other PC member experts here...the ones still active, or reading.

    I realize that this thread is older, but it has been resurrected and the subject is very real in today's world we live in. Windows 10 wants to be in everywhere.
    The Apple people are reading this and they probably say to themselves: How come I don't experience those kind of issues, but different ones?

    Scott and Vincent are the two local PC experts; that's their job of expertise to help people like me, and you.
    I'm sure there are others too...

    P.S. AVSForum has over one million members, and advertising (animated) is one of their main source of revenues.
    Naturally normal to be a slower site overall as compared to most smaller sites with less animated commercials and google checking on you, etc.
    There are so many functions and features inside our ordinateurs that it's not always organized efficiently. Internet Explorer says it...explorer.

    Add icloud sevices to the offender list. Yesterday my machine was having trouble drawing windows without big black blank spaces. I knew where to look, opened task manager, and icloud services was gobbling over a gig of memory. On reboot it was tamed to about 4 mb. Granted, I regularly have a dozen apps open, including memory hogs like Photoshop, InDesign, and Outlook (fat pig), and sometimes don't reboot for weeks at a time—making leaks even more apparent.

    (And no, I did not think icloud services was related to drawing of the screen, but the problem is a sign of memory issues.)

    At any one time, I probably have 30 to 40 tabs open in a dozen browser session . So no, there is not a problem there. It is the way I work.
