    For the past month or so my laptop has been running slow and freezing at times. I'm not a techie...

    It also says recover webpage quite often too...... It was getting on my nerves...

    I tried to goggle research the problem and many sites say that for $$$$$$$ they will send me some nuclear gizmo that will fix my problem.

    I researched again tonight and some sites gave me a 12 step program to fix it myself doing voodoo type stuff that I can't follow...
    Then I clicked on one site ad it said to try a simple solution first..... It said that probably my HISTORY folder had too much and needed to be deleted some. I didn't even know I had a history folder....
    I opened the history folder and deleted all past history and now my laptop runs so much faster. and no freezes or recover webpage warnings..

    I wonder how many older people like me get this problem too and spend $$$$$ to get some voodoo gizmo to fix it when it is not needed...

    Just did it. Thanks for the reminder. I don't know what AZ Gals is, but I sure do go there a lot. I'm old and I can't remember.
