When I boot up my pc, it is very, very slow to respond and finally tells me that there is no paging file or that the paging file is to small and also tells me how to correct this problem. My problem is i do know what a paging file is and what the size should.what it tells me is to go to control panel,click advance tabthen under performance click settings. On advance tab click change and then type an initial or maxium paging file size. I have not tried this since i do know what to type in. thank you in advance for any help you can give me.

Check in the task manager wich program is consuming the most of your CPU usage.
1. Press Ctrl+alt+del to open the task manager window.
2. Go to processes tab, and check.
3. Uninstall the program or programs that are using the most of your CPU.
If that does not work, check your system page file. You do that also on the task manager in the ''performance'' tab. It will show you two graphs, the CPU usage and the PF Usage (page file usage). If the page file is bigger than the amount of RAM you have installed, I would recommend you two options: 1)upgrade your RAM to your system needs or 2) uninstall any unused program or programs that you don't use regulary.
You can also try to restore your system to a previous configuration date were you know the system was working perfectly. In windows go to start>all programs>accesories>System tools>system restore.
As last resort, I would recommend, to backup all your data, documents, applications and others that you might need in the future and after that reinstall windows.
do you know how to access the settings for your paging file (portion of the hard drive used like it was ram) my computer>properties>performance and memory>page file reduce the size of your page file, this should free up a bit of space to work with.
sounds like virus or spyware at first. get microsoft security essentials and scan you PC i bet it's riddled the PC should power off if you hold the power button in for 4-6 seconds, rather than use the switch at the wall
It is likely that your hard drive and/or your cmos battery could be failing,, I would suggest testing these items with known good spares if you have them. If not then a quick diagnostic at a place like Office Depot,, (Offering free checkups for back to school),, or your local PC shop should be able to tell you whats wrong. If you need assistance in replacing the HDD or CMOS battery one diagnosed, feel free to get back to me. I CAN help to solve this problem.
