    slow browser- other same computer much faster
    I posted this yesterday but can't find the post. And no one responded, so.. I will try again. I have macbook, 10.4.11 This seems to be a problem that has happened over time so I was not aware of the problem. Then the other day my friend came over with the same macbook - got onto my airport connection and his browser pages flew by without hesitation. That is when I knew that I had a problem. Browser pages take forever to load. I have used disk utilities and all that except for antivirus. I use mostly firefox and sometimes safari. Safari seems a bit faster but nothing significant. This problem is only internet related- I have no problems using my music apps., etc. I would appreciated any advice.Otherwise I'm just thinking of installing leopard but don't want new problems now either...any thoughts? thanks peoples!

    Have you used Activity Monitor to see if anything might be hogging a lot of your RAM and/or CPU? Also, how full is your hard drive?
