  • Your homepage, startup page, or search engine has changed to a site you don't recognize.
  • Unfamiliar extensions or toolbars are added to Chrome
  • The Chrome desktop shortcut opens an unfamiliar website
  • These changes may be caused by malicious software known as malware. You can get malware from downloading files or visiting insecure sites.

How to See Which Browser Extensions Are Slowing Down Your Browser

Browser extensions are useful, but they can increase your browser’s memory consumption, make it take longer to open, and slow it down in general. But how do you measure the impact a browser extension has on your system?

Each browser offers its own ways to pin down an extension’s memory consumption, CPU usage, or startup delay. The exact information you’ll get depends on your browser.

Mozilla Firefox

Mozilla Firefox doesn’t offer an easy way to view a browser extension’s memory usage. Rather than digging this information up yourself, you can use a Firefox extension that will display this information for you. Yes, it may seem silly that you’re installing yet another browser extension to see how much extensions are slowing down your browser, but you can always uninstall or disable this extension after using it.

To do this, install the about:addons-memory extension and open the about:addons-memory page in a Firefox tab. You’ll see a list of the extensions you have installed, sorted by how much memory they use. This will give you a better idea of how much memory your add-ons use and which you may benefit from disabling. If you have an add-on with a memory leak, it may continue to use more and more memory the longer your browser runs — you can check this page later to see if any add-ons are consuming a large amount of memory.

Google Chrome

Google didn’t announce any shiny new Chromebooks at Google I/O. Instead, they highlighted their two big “platforms” — Chrome and... [Read Article]
Google Chrome is a multi-process browser and many browser extensions run as their own process. This means that you can use Chrome’s integrated Task Manager to view the memory consumption — and even current CPU usage — of your running browser extensions. The Task manager will also display the resources used by your installed Chrome web apps as well as each open browser tab and other background processes.

To open the Task Manager, click Chrome’s menu button, point to Tools, and select Task Manager. You can also press Ctrl + Escape to quickly open the task manager.

The Task Manager will give you an idea of how heavy each extension is. Bear in mind that only extensions that run in the background are listed here, so extensions that inject code into pages you load may not appear in the list, although they may have an impact on page loading times.

Internet Explorer

Internet Explorer doesn’t expose the memory used by individual browser add-ons. However, it does give you information about how long each browser add-on takes to load. From this, you can get an idea of how heavy a browser add-on is — if it takes longer to load, it may be consuming more memory as well as slowing things down.

To find this information, click the gear menu in Internet Explorer and select Manage Add-ons. You’ll see each browser extension’s load time listed under the Load time column — to prevent an add-on from loading along with IE, select it in the list and click the Disable button.

Internet Explorer also displays “Navigation time” for each add-on – - that’s how much of a delay an add-on adds each time you navigate to, or load, a new web page.

Use Your Browser’s Safe Mode

Actually determining how much system resources a particular browser extension uses is a difficult problem. The above tricks allow you to get at the information browsers give you, but this information doesn’t provide a complete picture.

Fortunately, there is a way to see how your browser performs without any add-ons at all. To do this, open your browser in “safe mode,” where it will load without any extensions at all. If your browser appears noticeably speedier in this mode, you’ll know that certain add-ons are bogging it down. Then, it would just be a matter of disabling add-ons one-by-one in normal mode and seeing how much performance improves to pin down the problem add-ons.

Mozilla Firefox: Click the Firefox button, point to Help, and select Restart with Add-ons Disabled.

Google Chrome: To launch Chrome in Safe Mode, right-click the Chrome icon on your taskbar, right-click the Google Chrome option in the list, and select Properties. Add –no-extensions (beginning with two dashes) to the end of the Target box and click OK. Close all running Chrome instances — including the Chrome icon that may be running in your system tray – and then use the shortcut to re-launch Chrome. To disable safe mode, edit the shortcut again and restart Google Chrome.

Internet Explorer: On Windows 7, click the Start button and launch the All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Internet Explorer (No Add-ons) shortcut. On Windows 8, you’ll need to launch this program manually — press Windows Key + R to open the run dialog, type the following text into it, and press Enter:

iexplore.exe -extoff

Browser extensions can be useful. But, like any other software that remains running in your computer, you should try to only use browser extensions that you need.

The fewer browser extensions you have installed, the less bogged down your browser will be. Using a few lightweight extensions shouldn’t result in a noticeable difference on modern computers, but if you keep adding extension after extension, you’ll eventually see your browser slow down

6 Types of Browser Errors While Loading Web Pages and What They Mean

You're guaranteed to stumble into an occasional error page while browsing the web. This guide will help you understand exactly what each error page means and what to do when you see them.

Note that each browser displays and words its error pages differently. A certificate error or malware warning looks different in each different browser, but the different types of error pages mean the same thing.

Certificate Error

An SSL certificate error or security certificate error indicates a problem with HTTPS encryption. You'll only see this error when connecting to a website using HTTPS.

When using HTTPS encryption, websites present certificates to identify that they are legitimate. For example, has a security certificate issued by a trusted certificate authority. The certificate authority verifies that Google is the real owner of and is entitled to the certificate. When you connect to using HTTPS, Google presents this certificate. Your browser checks that the certificate was issued by a known legitimate certificate authority to verify you're connecting to the real, not another server pretending to be

When you see a certificate error, this indicates that you’re not necessarily connecting to the real, legitimate website. For example, if you try to access your bank’s website on a public Wi-Fi network and see this error, it’s possible that the network is compromised and someone is attempting to impersonate your bank’s website.

However, it’s also possible that a website failed to properly renew or configure its certificate. Either way, you should not continue when you see this error message.

Phishing and Malware Warnings

Your browser will also display phishing (or “web forgery”) and malware warnings. Whether you use Firefox, Chrome, or Internet Explorer, your browser regularly downloads a list of dangerous websites. When you attempt to connect to a website on this list, you'll see an error message.

Websites are placed on these lists because they contain malware or because they attempt to impersonate a real website to steal your passwords, credit card numbers, or other sensitive information.

In some cases, a website may temporarily be added to this list because it was compromised. When the website is fixed, it should be removed from this list. When you see this message, you shouldn't continue.

404 Not Found

You may see a variety of web server messages when accessing web pages. The most common one is “404 Not Found,” which means you’re trying to access a page that doesn't exist. Either the web page was removed or you were typing in an address and mistyped it.

These error messages are generated by the remote web server and sent to your browser. If you see these, double-check the web page address you typed. If you clicked a link, the link was in error – or the page it points to has been removed.

Customized Error Pages

Website owners can customize the 404 Not Found and other error pages on their websites. For example, here at How-To Geek, we have a special 404 Page Not Found error inspired by classic Mario games. These errors mean the same thing, but they're generally customized to be more friendly and help you find what you're looking for.

Server Not Found

A “Server not found” error in Firefox or “Google Chrome could not find []” message indicates that your browser could not find the website you’re trying to access.

Either you mistyped a website address and you're trying to access a website that doesn't exist, your DNS server is down, or your firewall, proxy, or other settings are misconfigured.

Unable to Connect

The “Unable to connect” error in Firefox or “Google Chrome could not connect to []” message looks similar to the “Server not found” message above, but each means something different.

if you see this message, your browser has successfully contacted its DNS servers and identified that there should be a website at the target location. However, your browser did not receive a response from the website’s servers when it tried to connect.

There are quite a few other errors you may come across, but these are the most common ones. With some knowledge of these errors, you should know what’s going on every time you bump into an error page on the web.

How to Reset Your Web Browser To Its Default Settings

Want to reset your web browser to its default settings? You can't necessarily just uninstall it — your personal files will stay on your computer. And if your browser is Internet Explorer, it can’t be uninstalled at all.

Resetting your browser to its default state can often fix problems. For example, a program you install may change your search engine, install toolbars, and do other unwelcome things. Or you may have accidentally changed advanced settings on your own.

Google Chrome

Google Chrome has an option that will reset itself to its default settings. To find this option, open Chrome’s menu and select Settings. Perform a search for “reset browser” and you’ll see the Reset browser settings button.
You could also just plug chrome://settings/resetProfileSettings into Chrome’s address bar to pull up this page.

Use this option and Google Chrome will erase almost everything — your extensions, settings, cookies, history, home page, default search engine, and more. Chrome won't delete your bookmarks or passwords, so your important personal data will be kept.

Learn more about troubleshooting Google Chrome crashes if this didn't solve your problem.

Mozilla Firefox

Firefox also allows you to return it to its default state. To do so, click the Firefox menu button, point to Help, and select Troubleshooting Information.

Click the Reset Firefox button on the Troubleshooting Information page.

Firefox will erase your extensions and themes, browser preferences, search engines, site-specific preferences, and other browser settings. However, Firefox will attempt to preserve your bookmarks, history, passwords, form history, and cookies.

The Reset feature accomplishes this by creating a new profile for you, copying this important data over. Your old profile will be placed on the desktop in a folder titled “Old Firefox Data.” If you lose important data in the reset, you can attempt to recover it from this folder. If you don't need the folder, you're free to delete it.
Consult our guide to troubleshooting Firefox crashes for more information.

Internet Explorer

The desktop version of Internet Explorer has the ability to reset its settings to the default ones. If you're using Windows 8, resetting Internet Explorer on the desktop will also reset Modern Internet Explorer’s settings.

To do this, open the Internet Explorer desktop app, click the gear menu, and select Internet options.

Click over to the Advanced tab and click the Reset button at the bottom of the Internet Options window. Internet Explorer warns you that “You should only use this if your browser is in an unusable state,” but that’s just to dissuade you from wiping out all your personal settings unless it’s absolutely necessary.

Internet Explorer will disable browser add-ons and erase browser, privacy, security, and pop-up settings. If you also want to reset your homepage and search providers, as well as delete temporary files, history entries, and cookies, check the Delete personal settings box.

Your favorites and feeds won’t be erased. However, passwords you’ve saved in Internet Explorer will be deleted.

After resetting Internet Explorer, you'll have to restart your computer for your changes to take effect.

5 Free Windows Programs To Monitor Your Internet Usage

Home internet nowadays comes with a quota of how much bandwidth you can use in a month. It’s unavoidable and if you happen to exceed that quota, your internet provider might charge you a premium, or slow your speeds down to dial-up levels. If you don’t want this to happen to you, then you should monitor your internet usage.
Here are 5 free programs for your Windows PC to help monitor your Internet usage. This is great for readers who are on a student budget, studying abroad on a limited mobile broadband plan. Those broadband plans normally have a quota that includes both upload and download bandwidths and we’ve tested these 5 programs to see how they fare.

Once you install NetWorx, it will track all your Internet usage with an icon on the taskbar. You can click and launch the program to view usage graphs of each day. What’s good about NetWorx is the ability to set a daily, weekly or monthly quota to track uploads or downloads or both. You can also set the on/off peak usage that some internet providers have and it’ll warn you if you’re about to reach the limit.

This program comes with a desktop widget meter graph of your download and upload speeds. Similar to NetWorx, you can add a quota limit — in the case of BitMeter 2, it is named ISP Restrictions. Once set, it’ll tell you how many days and bandwidth you can use before reaching your limit. You can also view your usage stats that can be sorted by hours, days, and months.

This program permanently sits on your taskbar showing upload and download speeds. To enable this, right click on your taskbar and under Toolbars click on NetSpeedMonitor. Apart from showing connection speeds, it can track your daily usage. You can see track your daily or monthly usage, and also see what programs are connected to the internet. Unlike the other programs though, there is no quota reminder.

This program has a very clean user interface that is easy to understand. Upon installing it, you’ll have to provide an email address to register for a free product code. After that, you can begin tracking your internet usage and even see what programs are connected to the internet. It also allows you to set your monthly quota with reminders sent to you as you near the limit.

ISP Monitor is a lightweight program to easily track your daily or monthly internet usages. You’ll have to set it up first by changing the adapter settings under Settings > Traffic Monitor > Adapterto choose between a wired or Wi-Fi connection. Unlike the previous programs, you cannot set a quota reminder. It has easy-to-read logs where you can instantly see your daily upload and download usage.

The Server's security certificate is not yet valid "Solved"

Recently i was unable to login to my Microsoft outlook365 site and blogger site because of Server Security Certificate Issue. I was facing critical issue. I was frustrated and after research i have collected the following information –

Problem Attempt:

“You attempted to reach, but the server presented a certificate that is not yet valid. No information is available to indicate whether that certificate can be trusted. Google Chrome cannot reliably guarantee that you are communicating with and not an attacker. You should ensure that your clock and time zone are set correctly on your computer. If they are not, you should correct any issues and refresh this page. If they are correct, you should not proceed.”

Brief Solution:

The Solution to this problem is much simpler. You have to synchronize your system clock. Detailed Step by Step Solution will tell you how to synchronize your system clock.
  • Open your Date/Time Setting from the Window Task bar.
  • Set Correct Date and Time,

  • Now Open “Internet Time Zone” Tab.

  • Click on “Update Now” button so that it will start synchronizing your internet server timing.

  • After few seconds you will get message saying that you have synchronized correctly with server date and time.
