Hi.. I'm using Google Chrome. I had always used IE but when I got the new computer he set it up using Chrome. I've gone back and forth some, but for some reason when using IE pages don't seem to want to load.

So the problem is in Chrome, or IE? Both?

Hi sorry it took so long for me to get back to you, but I am now having multiple problems with my NEW Windows 7 computer.. My speed is right up there betw 8 & 10, but now I am having a problem even getting to use websites. It will let me go there, and even let me go a little further, but for some reason when I click on something it does nothing.. FOr instance I have a greeting card program, which will no longer let me edit or print even a card I've saved there. On FB, I have a hard time clicking on certain things (photos etc.) It does nothing.. it goes on and on in different sites.. I'm getting the msg. done with error on page a lot.. I am SO ready to go back to my old computer with XP on it. IT is also happening with Chrome some.
Sorry so long, but I am.. FRUSTRATED!!

Sounds to me like a mouse or touchpad problem. Have you tried another mouse.
