Is this Win 10 complaining. If it detects that a Web page is using excessive resources it may well say this. PC Advisor forum pages - with the advertising- kill the response on my older machine because of the CPU usage they grab.

I was having Problems tonight using Firefox.I was using google as a browser and it just would not connect,

Tried quite a few things that did not work then tried MSN as my Browser and no problems using that.

Mind you a brand new laptop and it does not want to work properly and cannot get it to update windows.

Will try again tomorrow though.

What a waste of money it was buying this. if the CPU is not running at 100% the Disk is. Not sure what ot who to blame, Microsoft and their crap W10. or the cheap computer or the idiot that bought it.

Yup looks like I am impersonating Victor Meldrew tonight. You must be joking.

What web page is it? An adblocker might help.
