Internet barely works

Step 1:
Most of the programs running in the background of your computer start automatically during PC reboot. These applications were added to the Windows startup menu during default installation. However, you probably do not need all of the programs that are currently running on your computer all the time. This only slows down your PC and the reboot time. Fortunately, you can access the Windows startup menu and remove the programs you do not need to have running automatically. Turning off the programs shuts them down until you enable them again through the "Start" menu.

Go to the "Start" menu, type "msconfig" in the "Start Search" box and press "Enter" to start the System Configuration utility. Click the "Startup" tab in the System Configuration window. Uncheck the programs that you want to turn off and stop from running in the background. Click "Apply" and "OK" to save the new settings. Restart your computer.

Computer wont turn on

There is a possibility that your computer may have been too hot which was why it froze. You can also try reinstalling your gpu driver as well as try to close down applications in the background because if you have too many things opened in the background at once it can slow things down.

As soon as I switch my Philips SPC 620NC WebCam on, my PC shuts down. I use Windows XP service pack 2.

I have a similar error with my Logitech webcam. In order for me to use it, I must plug it in and turn it on before the computer even boots up, which is my solution for now.
If I turn it on while the computer is already running, it gives me the blue screen and shuts off.
This is because there is a program or application running in the background that does not comply with your webcam, causing Windows to get confused and crash/turn off your computer.
Try plugging in/turning on before you start your computer. Hope this works!

My PC startup is fine then I get to logon screen. Each user account is different. I have WinXP SP3. I sometimes takes a little longer to hear logon sound, then pauses and finally the desktop comes up....

sounds like your computer is bogging down from to much bloatware. do a disk clean up. and uninstall any unnecessary programs. if this doesn't work you might have to take your computer in to have someone do an optimization on all accounts. that will fix your problem.

Programs running in background on my pc

The trick is to choose which programs run at startup. These background programs will slow your computer down. I use "startup optimizer", this free software will rank your startup programs, allow you to research the need for each, and turn on or off the program. It also lets you create a backup file, just incase you turn off too many options and screw up your computer.
