I have notice that ebay in particular is running very slow on my laptop, I regularly clear the history on google chrome browser and do the disk clean up regularly but when I am on ebay (in particular) I notice that it is taking a very long time for the pages to load and in the lower left side of the screen I see a little message saying "waiting for cache". Is it it the cache that is causing sites to run slower than normal and how can I fix this, my laptop is an Acer 1tb with only about 50gb being used with the docs and photo folders. thanks LAPTOPDUNCE

OK I have reset chrome from the first option in the settings on chrome (the 2nd otion looks a bit complicated as I cant remember my computers own name and not sure what to back up) will see how it goes with the Chrome reset, thanks laptopdunce

Try turning off JavaScript.

Click chrome menu icon .

Scroll down and select " show advanced settings"

Select content settings

Then select " do not allow any site to run JavaScript"

Then run eBay.

You can reverse the option anytime you like.
