So, almost every time i log on my computer says it will speed up if I disable add on's. What do they mean by add on's? Programs? Stuff on my desk top? I don't have much on here now, no big graphic hungry games or such. I always delete the message, but maybe I should click through. What do you computer folks think? Alan?

I don't know much of anything about computers. But we have this program called "System Mechanix" and whenever I run that, it gets rid of alot of junk. Maybe you'd benefit from one of those programs?

OK I'll check into that. Thanks Cathy.

Do you mean that you get this message whenever you start your computer or when you open your browser, such as Internet Explorer. If it is a browser message, it is advising you that you have add-ons configured for your browser and is suggesting that your internet surfing may be speeded up by disabling one or more of these add-ons.

I'm not sure which browser you may be using, but if it's Internet Explorer 9, click on the settings button on the upper right corner (it looks like a gear), then click 'Manage add-ons to see which ones you have installed.
