My Toshiba laptop is running slow while internet browsing

I think my laptop just needs to be "cleaned up"

It seems like it's been running more slowly over time.  I used customer service once to clean it up once, and it ran much better.  Now my warranty has expired and I can't recall the steps to clean it up.

I mostly use it for browsing using Internet Explorer.  I also download pictures from my digital camera.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

CCleaner is a free download that I have used for many years to keep the crap from building up in my computer. Be sure and click on the Free Download box to the left of the window I linked you to. If you ever have occasion to post back here, please include your model info as in in my examples below.

Always tell us which computer you have when you post here. There is a label on the bottom.

 

If your problem involves the browser, tell us which one.

 

This is for Internet Explorer.

"Cleaning things up" on the hard drive or in the registry is unlikely to help your browsing speed.
