My internet browsers (Chrome, Mozilla, IE) started approximately 2 weeks ago to become 'unresponsive' from time to time. This has become very frequent now and I only get access to the browser for approximately 1 minute before it becomes unresponsive again. Restarting the Laptop allows me to re-access the browsers.
I am using 3G wifi, and I have double checked the internet using other devices (tablet, smartphone) , so it is not an internet issue.
While the browsers may be unresponsive, other programmes (MS Office etc) work perfectly fine.
I have checked Task Manager and CPU/ Memory/ Disk all look fine (typically around 5%/50%/10% when the browser is unresponsive).
I use McAfee as an anti-virus. All my software is up-to-date.
I have had the laptop rest back to a point ( approximately 3 weeks ago) and that seems to have helped for a few hours but now I am back to square one.
Any suggestion on where I should look to resolve the problem?
