Re: my system is not responding !
Could be any number of probems, and it would depend on exactly what type of system you have, (memory, cpu). Also, systems will have the tendency to slow down over time. It is good to reformat and reinstall the OS every few years or so, but depending on how much the computer gets used. Some times system slow downs can be as simple as installing a new program in a system. Some anti-virus software will bogg a system down because it uses so much resources. If your system is randomly slowing down, especially on start-up, I would suggest that you hit Control-Alt-Delete, and then see what process is running that is taking up most of you CPU resources during that moment. You can also go to Start-Run and then type in MSCONFIG and turn things off during start-up--but be careful. I turn off things that I don't need to constantly run, such as MS Office, and things that I am sure won't affect my system.

Duce,how much memory (RAM) do you have.when a computer gets slow it have to little memory.is it a 32x the computer can only take 4 GB memory.is it a 64x ca:8-12.so i suggest you upgrade the memory and look over if you use the programs you got uninstall them never used and only rarely used. http://www.wisecleaner.com/ here do yo find a good cleanigprogram.
if your computer is booting very slow and your operating system is XP / VISTA / WIN 7 dont get frustated//
here is the quick solution
1) xp computer---click start/ run/ type msconfig/ ok/
system configuration window will open//
goto startup / hit the tab disable all at the bottom// apply//
go to services and at the bottom put the check on the box which says " hide all microsoft services" then click ok or close to close the system configuration window and restart the computer and it will boot very fast .
when the computer boots up you will get the window of system configuration and at the bottom put the check on the box which says "do not show this msg again".
note** vista and win 7 user will have to follow the same steps.. just type the command " msconfig" in the start seargh which appears at the bottom when you click the start button.
Computers slow down, even after a short time, there is a little guide that will help to speed up, and keep it safe and secure http://www.fixya.com/support/r5272277-secure_clean_computers
I would also advise a little more memory, but i have ran a few pc's with 256mb ram and they where still usable.
Try ebay for older types of memory
Try and do a XP repair: Boot the PC with a Win XP cd.
When you boot with the Win XP install CD-ROM, it loads a minimal operating system, similar to DOS, but compatible with Win XP. At the first screen you select install Win XP (not Recovery Console) and at the next screen it will find that you already have Win XP and offer to attempt a repair. This repair should not touch your applications, it just reinstalls the Windows files. This is great because when it works you don't need to reinstall all your software. If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it. Thanks, Joe
On eMacines, the recovery partition contains your driver and software. But you needed to create the recovery cd set when you got your computer.
To restore it,if your computer came with XP, borrow an Win XP cd (cannot be a HP,Dell etc).
Try a repair first:

If a repair does not work, do a complete install. If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it. Thanks, Joe
The file “Windows/System/Drivers/mup.sys” is not actually causing the problem. It’s the next step after mup.sys that’s causing the computer to hang. That next step consists of the OS checking the registry files for plug and play devices. Some causes are: new or defective hardware installed, corrupted registry, (caused by virus), defective or corrupted hard drive, just to name a few. Try removing all devices attached to the computer like printer, web cam, flash drives, etc. If your computer has a PCI or AGP graphics card AND your motherbrd has a VGA connector, remove the video card and use the one on the motherbrd. If the above doesn’t work, try running “CHKDSK /P” from the Windows recovery console.
