It could be that you have fragmentation the best whay to solve that is whit defracmentation.
Just go to start then programs then to acsesories then go disk cleaning (don't know for sure this is the name but it should be somthing whit disk) and then you wil see disk defragmentation.
well it could be you have gone on a lot of sites and it has a lot of cookies you can get a ccleaner to help that or it could be you have to much things on your labtop like downloads thats most of the time your problem so i would ask a person like me who knows about computers to take some of the useless junk your little sister put on and one of the downloads could have a virus that has been doing some of the damage that your spyware could not well please tell me if any of those things worked.
where would i get these CD cleaners? are they available at computer stores like Circuit City and the like?
^o^ also she's not my little sister, she's ten years older than me... but she's addicted to MySpace... and i let her borrow it so she HAS to give me a ride in the rare occasion that i ask!
heh i forgot to do a disk cleanup and it freed up about 3gigs ^_^.
I'd also recommend when using your computer to do not leave programs(specially big ones) open for extended periods of time) because they take up alot of RAM on your computer. (close them or you can also close som unneeded programs that are in your tray down below where your clock is.)
I just worked on a friend's laptop with 256mb RAM and the Norton Security Suite + iTunes combo nearly kills it. I'd suggest unless you're reloading your iPod or downloading to exit or suspend iTunes. You'll save some memory and your system should be a little more responsive. Can't really turn off your security software and still feel safe... (Norton is pretty bloated, though).
Sounds like a virus or trojan to me I had a problm once like this, one of my ex-friends put a virus on my computer to make it shut down at random moments with a blue screen, it would help if we knew what it said on the screen also. Try fixing the registry, look up some XP Registry fixers like XP Repair Pro 2007 or Registry Mechanic or TuneUpUtilities 2007 and fix the registry + defrag the registry. Try finding any viruses or trojans if possible since that would solve the problem if not the other suggestions.
If nothing that everyone said works and you can do a system restore and that would erase anything like viruses off your computer unless they embeded themselves into your restore. If you want a good virus scanner and you can pay 40-60$ get either of these 2 because they are the top AVs in my opinion
Low on RAM? NoD32
Antivirus Software - Eliminate Spyware and Adware with NOD32 Antivirus from ESET
Got an ok ammount of RAM, Kaspersky
Kaspersky Lab: Antivirus software
