You may still keep MBAM on your computer and run a scan on a regular basis. You should uninstall and re-install Chrome and see if that makes any difference. Is the computer slow all the time or just when using Chrome? Does it do that with Internet Explorer?

    It happens when I use Chrome and IE.

    Please try Firefox and see it that is also slow. Has it always been like that or did it just start recently?

      I haven't used Firefox yet. But Google Chrome shutting off and being slow really has started to happen a lot lately. Maybe the last week or two.

      Please try FF to see if it will do the same thing and report back.

        I haven't done that yet but Google Chrome is a little better today. It's not shutting off as much. I have a dumb question but I have The Directv Now Streaming Service. Do you think that might have something to do with it? I thought when I clicked on Task Manager that it used a lot of memory.

        That could be the problem. Try turning it off in Task Manager and watch what happens.
