the fastest way to cure this problem is to backup important files like bookmarks and setting then do a complete reinstall.
Or you can just uninstall everything that is not needed or is rarely used.
this can be a very slow process like looking in the task manager and figuring out what every is that is running.
I try to have as minimal programs as possible running
