    Default Google takes 20 seconds to boot up

    Using Windows 10 - It takes 20 seconds to boot Google so how can I fix this?
    This might have something to do with this (Your device ran into a problem and needs to restart. Were just collecting some error info then we will restart) and this happen 3 or 4 times a day and something 5 minutes it will do the same thing?
    To top it off - I get (We recommend viewing this website in Microsoft Edge) and I have both ways I can get Internet sites with Internet explorer and using the star shape icon in edge} So half my sites or on each one and what a mess I have.

    Default Re: Google takes 20 seconds to boot up

    When I bring Google up which take 20 seconds I can go to any website and I get the website I click on but then I minimize it I get a website saying "We recommend viewing this website in Microsoft edge" Also I can't bring up 2 websites at the same time, so I have to click on my email each time I want to read it? After bringing up google I can go to a website fast. This is a real mess.

    I agree, clear cookies. You must have a lot of it stored already.

    Default Re: Google takes 20 seconds to boot up

    If its Chrome ( as Chrome is the Browser, Google is only the web page).

    Try This -- 1st open Chrome and wait for it to open 3 Dots top right, select New incognito Window, it should open almost instantly.

    Then close it, Again 3 Dots - Settings - In the search up top, type in HARDWARE Set Use hardware acceleration when available to OFF.

    Or 3 Dots - Settings - On Left - Advanced - System

    Close Chrome, reopen.

    It could also be some extension you may have installed - to test -- 3 dots - More tools - Extensions - should be top left - Disable Extensions Temporarily - turn on, again close chrome, restart it.

    Failing that -- reset Chrome -- 3 Dots - Settings in search type Reset - select it - its meant to keep all bookmarks etc but I'd do a backup first of Chrome in case it doesn't.
    Or 3 Dots - Settings - On Left - Advanced - System

    Could also be your Antivirus Scanning Chrome before opening.

    Failing that there could be some sort of System corruptions or a corrupted Chrome profile.

    Highly doubt its cookies unless there are some sort of buggy / infected cookies.

    what browser are you using , are you still using Internet Explorer ?
    Install Chrome, set Chrome to the default browser

    Also, is this in Win10 or Win7 ?
