why do i get errors on most Internet pages

Specs: Windows 7
My 3 month old Toshiba laptop is running slow, having trouble typing consistantly, and most internet pages come up with errors and won't let me navigate around or out of the page. Have tried uninstalling useless programs but this has not seemed to make a difference.
Any advice would be much appreciated before I call in expert help.
Thankyou

Go to Tools>Internet Options, Select Delete and on the next window check off most or all check boxes and select Delete (Internet Explorer) [On FireFox, Tools Clear Recent History, and choose the option for everything]. If this helps (and it should), you should drastically reduce the number of days cookies, history and temporary internet files are kept. I keep history set for one day only AND I have the browser set to clear everything anyway when I close it.

After that, scan your system with MalwareBytes (free version). It will usually detect and remove infections most antivirus programs miss. I keep it on my desktop for occasional scans periodically and if/as needed.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
If all else fails, read instructions.
