"My new laptop taking a long time to go online"


          

When I first got this laptop, HP, Win 10, 4cores, It was so fast. Now it takes 5 minutes to get hooked up on line.

Any ideas about what has caused this?

Possible causes of your problem based on the tiny amount of info you have provided:

- Malware or other junk loading at startup.
- Failing hard drive.
- Problems with your router or internet connection.

Is the problem that your computer is slow in general, or does it boot quickly but takes a long time to pull up a web page? You need to provide more details about your computer, your internet service and the nature of the problem.

Behind every good computer... is a jumble of wires 'n stuff.
