If 'Internet Explorer is not responding' there can be many reasons why. It may be your internet connection is very busy and slow. It may be your computer is running slow. Do a Google search for 'broadband speed test' and see what speed you are getting. If it is less than 4 Mb/sec you have a slow connection. Try getting your present computer running at its best.
Delete all unnecessary software and old emails
Run a hard disk scan and de-fragment
Run a good anti-virus and spyware check
You can get 1000's of suggestions for the 'best machine'! But I guess on a new machine you want a proper keyboard, a reasonably sharp screen. PC Pro Magazine recommends ASUS Transformer Book T100 Windows 8.1 for 290 pounds, (400 dollars) as a Budget Buy and 5* rating.
If you want any more help with the details, please get back to me.

When pc is star windows is slow respond and touch patch also then i am pressing any of the key pc is working normally


Improper computer maintenance may result in slow PC. To fix computer running slow you are required to clean junk and windows errors from your PC using a System Utilities program.
To download a reliable System Utilities, go to famous website download.cnet and search there Reginout. Which I personally use and recommend the friends.After downloading run all of its tools one by one except Internet Optimizer, to clean all the junk and error files from your computer.

Computer running extremely slow


possiblity of a virus effect. try low level formatting on your system and then reinstalling the softwares again. Sometimes several programs installed on your system and been removed improperly also causes the system speed to slow down. You can also try removing their entries using the msconfig command at the run.

My laptop computer is okey except that the touch command for the cursor is not responding, if i use a mouse thru the usb port then its alright..why does the touch command for the cursor not responding?


Touch pads are not very reliable. I have seen a lot fail.
A computer repair person will need to replace it for you.
My advice is to stick with a USB mouse. Or if it is under warranty, take advantage of that warranty.
Best of luck.

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.

Computer will not respond to any commands


Make sure that the keyboard and mouse wires are plugged in the appropriate ports, if it still won't work, try switching keyboard and mouse. If it still will not work I would call the factory and try to have it shipped back because it could be blown ports.

I hope this helps some.
