Is this a windows or apple machine? Do you have a good, current virus protection program like Norton's 360 or similar that is up to date and runs automatically?

Clean the cat hair out of the fan! Overheating can sometimes cause a slow down.
Don't forget to purge your files. Cleaning up the disc is another common solution.
Is it just Chrome? Try a different browser.
Anything more technical is beyond me.

Thanks to both of you, already did those things but problem solved, ATT is our provider and previously had a problem and one of their techs told me to hold down the on/off switch and count to 10 and turn back problem would solve itself, he stayed on the phone to make sure it did, fortunately I wrote it down so I'd remember it, it worked all is well.

Yes a fresh reboot once in a while always help, especially after the computer has updated. Glad to hear your are back running well.

So I get a notice that windows 7 is no longer supported.
I downloaded windows 10 and somehow now it won't communicate with my Lexmark printer.
I did all the troubleshooting suggestions.
I believe a firewall is holding me up. Not sure how to jump over it!

Check for compatibility of your printer with Win10. Some older peripherals may need to have their software upgraded or, sadly, are not Win10 compatible.
