The program freezes up all the time and is driving me nuts. I have searched and even reinstalled and ran RegCure which I read was supposed to help this problem. It didn't. I have a Toshiba Satellite A135, S4727. I recently had to reinstall the hard drive from disk due to malware or something I encountered. I don't know is the disk does not have all the info on it or what. It came from Toshiba when I ordered it. Thank you for any help you can give me.

Could be a program running in background. Try to go to msconfig ( click on start, run, and type msconfig). On the startup items, disable all and reboot. See if the performance improves. If it does, enable startup program on msconfig one by one and reboot. to check what startup item is causing the slow performance. If it does not improve, might be an unnecessary driver for the system. Reinstall windows xp.
It freezes because one of the programs set to start at boot crashes. To identify which immediately after booting open Task Manager and look at the processes - one should reach 99% CPU use. Once you have found it stop it from launching at boot or just uninstall it.
Sounds like your is overheating. You might want to make sure your CPU fan is spinning. Another good thing you can do is download a little program called speedfan http://www.filehippo.com/download_speedfan/
this will tell you the internal temp of your processor and hard drives and if your fans are running. If the fans are running and the cpu is staying cool, I would then do a full bios test on the hard drive itself as well as a chkdsk /x through a command prompt on the hard drive (from safe mode). Let me know if these don't resolve the issue.
