    This guide has helped me so much. The tools in the guide are all free, the instructions are easy to follow, it’s impossible to make a mistake. I followed the instructions as written, my firefox & google chrome don’t freeze up now, and neither does my Windows 7. I bookmarked this guide so I can reference it later. Thank you Kris!
