I normally operate with Firefox. I am told that I should have a memory usage on Firefox of around 120000K. Over the last couple of weeks my PC is grinding to almost a standstill with a memory usage of nearly 400000K! At this point web pages take around a minute to change. The only way I can get over this is to reboot the computer, but within 45 minutes the MU has risen dramatically.

I also cannot use Windows Explorer or AOL browsers.

I also keep having a message stating that applications are failing to start '..........because MSVCP71dll was not found..' A souple of taps on 'Enter' clears this.

I have no idea if there is a link between the two problems. I cannot make any sense of MSVCP71dll on a Google search.

Please can anyone help me get out of the mess I am in. Any replies must be in words of one sylable, as I have great difficulties in understanding computer jargon.

First, please post your basic system info by using this:

TSG SysInfo

What version of Firefox are you using? Have you added any add-ons recently? Have you installed any other software recently? The error message is related to a software issue.
