There may be a cookie or something residing on our computer causing this. From your browser>tools>internet options>select delete. delete files and cookies. Out of that, go to start>run>type prefetch in the window. select all and delete all the files there. empty your recycle bin and reboot and run a complete virus scan. If that doesn't help, go to all programs>accessories>system tools> system restore. select a date previous to when you had this problem. You may lose data at this point but I'm hoping deleting the files and a reboot does the trick

My computer freezes up when I open any program, but does not while in safe mode. What does this mean?


It pretty much means that something is running in the background when the computer starts normally. When in safe mode, some things do not load up. The first thing I would try is to run Malwarebytes, to see if there are any spyware or viruses on the computer.

My laptop is freezing up soon after start up. It takes a long time for the system to initialize, it is an instant problem as it has worked perfectly up until now. When we opened the screen this morning,...


It would appear that your laptop is infected with spyware / malware.

You can verify this by answering the following: is the hard drive light constantly on after boot up? If the hard drive is constantly running, then you probably have spyware running in the background and this is causing the laptop to "freeze".

Disconnect the laptop from the Internet and see if the laptop will respond after a period of time after boot up. Spyware uses the Internet connection - removing this connection should allow the comptuer to start responding.

You will need to perform the standard procedures to remove viruses and spyware. Make sure your antivirus is up-to-date and at least install a free version of an anti-spyware removal tool. Microsoft offers Windows Defender for free, LavaSoft also offers a free version of their Ad-Aware program.

Install the anti-spyware program and run a deep scan, reboot and repeat. You will need to do this at least 4 times to clean out the "Last Known Good" restores as well as the currently running image.

External monitor


This does not appear to be a display issue but more of a failure of explorer to load. Try pressing Ctrl + Alt + Del so it brings up task manager. Click file then go to new task and type Explorer and see if all of your icons and such show up. If they do you will want to install a spyware remover such as spybot search and destroy from safer-networking to check for any spyware that is preventing explorer from running. Also check your event viewer in safe mode and see if there are any errors when you boot.

Spyware Guard 2008 is a new entrant to the family of rogue security software. It is not to be confused with SpywareGuard a fine freeware from Javacool software.
A rogue security software belongs to a family of software products that call themselves as antivirus, antispyware or registry cleaners and often use deceptive or high pressure sales tactics and deliberate false positives to convince users into buying a license/subscription. They are often repackaged and renamed. They do not actually remove malware instead many of them add more malware of their own
