Incoming Email Freezes Computer for Seconds and Stops Work

As I received Email my computer stops working for the few seconds that it takes for the email to come in. If i get several in a row, it freezes for a longer time. Sometimes the screen I am working on disappears. I need my incoming email to arrive in the background and not disturb my current work. Help!

I would ensure that the computer isn't infected with a virus or spyware. Two good programs to remove spyware are Lavasoft Ad-aware 2008 and Spybot search and destroy. If you search for those two names, be aware that there are many programs that have similar names as the two above programs. Those are the only two spyware programs I trust. Any other programs have a chance of putting more spyware on your computer than they take off.
To scan for viruses Trend Micro has an online scanner called House Call that is good for online virus scanning.

The problem you are having isn't an Email problem but a problem with lots of programs running in the background. I would also check for programs that are automaticlly running at startup.

Good luck!

The laptop sounds like it has motherboard issues, and possibly hard drive problems as well. The computer should be returned for exchange because it will get worse and reach a point that it will be come unusable, I strongly recommend taking it back the sooner the better.

My Gigaware ubs mouse keeps looking up, how do I stop this?


You should try replacing the batteries in the unit, if it still freezes after that, try unplugging and replugging the wireless receiver. If it still freezes, try it on a separate PC. If it freezes still yet on a different computer, then you know the mouse has a hardware problem and should be replaced. If it doesn't freeze on the other PC then you will need to reinstall the software for the mouse on your main computer.
