It could be a thousand things, but here are a couple you can try.
You should run your computer in safe mode and do a virus scan. 

  1. restart your computer and press F8
  2. select safe mode with networking
  3. update your antivirus program
  4. do a full virus scan
You could also defragment your hard drive.
  1. click start
  2. right click 'my computer'
  3. on the left side click manage
  4. click disk defragmenter
  5. click  'C drive'
  6. click defragment.
Now go and watch some TV because its gonna take a long time to defragment your hard drive. You could also upgrade your RAM (memory)
Another option is to reinstall windows. Save whatever data or pictures you want to a usb stick or cd .If you have the windows cd that came with your computer, than put it in the cd rom and restart your computer. And if you have nothing imorrtant on your hard drive than click "format'. This well wipe your hard drive clean and start from scratch. Than follow the instructions on the screen.
Any problems let me know. Tell me how you made out, and please rate my answer.

What is happening with AOL? I have been having lots of pop ups, slow computer and AOL telling me they are having problems? My computer very slow?


Is you computer slow when using software offline? If so, it is either AOL or your internet. Don't judge the speed strictly by going to AOL. Go to Speakeasy Speed Test and test your internet speed. If that shows your internet is running at the speed you are paying for, it si AOL having trouble. You don't say which browser you are using, but most browsers have an option to block pop-ups. Make sure it is on.
Run a virus scan on your PC to see if it is infected. Also defrag your hard drive to speed it up some.

My computer runs really slow, freezes, internet explorer hardly ever works. help!!


There is no such thing as a windows vista machine. You can install different operating systems on different machines. Your problem is most likely that you're missing drivers for the peripherals.
Download a program called "driver easy" and run it. It will tell you what drivers are missing, once you get all the drivers installed you should find things work better, like once you get your network running then internet explorer will stop having problems.

Having freeze up and very slow loading of programs


I have EXACT same computer. Are you running WIN 7? It works great! Have you cleared out the temp folder? users/(your name)/appdata/local/temp. Empty as much as you can in this folder. Its only a temp folder. How about clearing the browser cache? Have you run disk defragmenter? Theres alot you can do. Clean out the cookies. INSTALL more MEMORY. I have 4GB RAM in mine. Open the box and Clean it with pressurized air. BLOW out that dust! It holds in the heat, which defeats the heat sinks sole purpose! Hope this helps.

I really doubt it. Running an old version of IE might be more prone to freezing, which is why I prefer the Google Chrome Browser anyway

I have windows vista and internet explorer keeps freezing


The problem is more than likely with Internet Explorer itself, not your computer. If you press Ctrl+Alt+Del, you can start the task manager, which will allow you to close IE without rebooting your entire computer. There's also no need to reformat your hard drive. You can try updating IE to see if that helps, or try using another browser (like Firefox, for example).

Computer hangup


Temporary freezing like you described can be caused by the site you are trying to get to, having too much traffic, or the site having allot of commercials or ads or media that slows you down until your browser can digest it.

If it happens on the same site all the time, its the site.
If it happens all the time on numerous sites it probably indicates that you need more RAM to surf efficiently.

Thank you and Good luck.
