Been having problems with firefox slowing waaaay down after a broswer has been left open for any extended period of time. Seems like my entire PC just grinds to a halt. I'm sure I've got all sorts of things going on with my registry that are causing this. Hope someone can help me out. Here's my HT log:

Check these off and fix checked

I would check CPU and RAM usage at the point when performance starts to degrade.

I suspect firefox or something else is either using all the CPU time or is using too much RAM (and possibly using more as time goes on)

Possibly a bad extension installed in Firefox?

How much ram is on it?? You can tick these then tick fix checked

Close browsers. Or use ccleaner and delete the startup entries

I would use something better than realplayer

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [TkBellExe] "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Real\Update_OB\realsched.exe" -osboot

Wouldnt be surprised if its Google updater, or a FF addon. If its open at the time

If it is firefox 3.6 then its probably plugin-container.exe (had it myself before) problem is that it uses a lot of the cpu. You can however disable it (use google).

I use a little program called Startup Control Panel http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml Very handy little applet, installs in your Control panel. Gives you tick box control.
