Clean out your browser's history, cookies, internet files, etc. [Weekly]
Set browser to keep history only for 2 or 3 days and delete cookies when it is closed. [Once]
Uninstall any program you do not use. [Periodically]
Turn off programs from starting with Windows (msconfig, start tab & uncheck all but MS & antivirus) [As needed]
Do a disk clean up & defrag. [Monthly]
Run Malwarebytes (even though you have antivirus program). [Weekly]
If you have Norton or McAfee, dump them and get good antivirus program. Avast (free version) and MS Security Essentials will cost you nothing and are vastly better. [ASAP]
Contact your ISP about your download speed if you are still having trouble. [As needed]

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
