Question about IBM ThinkPad T30 2366 Notebook

1 Answer

Not responding I get this so much. It can be when I'm checking my yahoo email, my antivirus is scanning, doing a google search, my work email, defragging, etc. I have an Avast, Spyware Doctor, Tuneup Utilities, have de-fragged, disk clean up, etc. I have Windows XP Prof. Service Pack 3, 512kc (86% used) I use my laptop at work & home. I have an IBM Lenovo T30. I have stopped programs from running at startup. My browser is Firefox 3.0.5. Ok, what is up? Please ask me before you answer if I have done this, ran that, stopped this, disabled that, etc. I have googled everything possible but get sometimes get such a technical answer it goes over my head. I am not dumb but am smart enough to research the problem. However, you get answers such as " you need to get an antivirus program, spyware program, firewall, etc. Help!

    It happens when I try to open Microsoft Word, save a file, surfing the internet, checking my email. Random things I do daily - it just says (not responding) sometimes for minutes at a time.

    Just now, I was playing free cell and was trying to open a word document but it was (not responding) so I just kept playing my game until it would finally respond & finish opening the document.

    as i read your description, i think u and i have the same issue. my laptop now runs slow and hangs for 30sec to several minutes at a time; i have scanned with avast and defender and they find no issues. because i have my laptop on for extended periods at a time and it sits on a desk, i'm thinking the problem may be heat related. my intent is to first replace the memory modules ( which i needed to upgrade anyway), and see if this has an immediate effect, if not my next step would be to see if i can upgrade (or just replace the cpu). i will leave a message as to my results as soon as i'm able to do this.

    OK... and how long does a full virus scan take to complete?

  • fehknt May 11, 2010

    Something in particular comes up as not responding? Or just various programs? Or the entire computer stops responding?

Yahoo and Google Search Not Working


Hi

If you restored your computer, you may have destroyed some of the files needed by Yahoo and Google search engines. The easiest way to resolve this is to download and reinstall both the Yahoo and Google search engines.

Good Luck

Redirected from yahoo email


You may have a virus or worm that has infiltrated your network and it is routing you to the google page away from your Yahoo!Mail. I would recommend doing a virus scan on all the computers attached to your network including locking down your firewall on any routers, hubs, switches and on all windows platforms utilized by your computers. Once that is done, proceed with a full network check which you may need to consult a local computer repair company if you are unable to do the network scan yourself.

Yahoo is totally shut down with error messages. hw will i be able to check email if yahoo as totally shut down from my computer?? same with facebook as per usual the system is slow not responding same with...


Sounds like you have some sort of infection on the computer. Would be odd for both Yahoo and Facebook to be down at the same time. Also you mentioned your computer is running slow and not responding which furthers the thought of malware/virus on the PC.

To scan for an infection I would recommend (2) pieces of software. The first one is "MALWARE BYTES ANTI-MALWARE" & the second would be "AVG ANTIVIRUS". If you click on the title of both of those softwares it will take you to the download page. Download them and run them to get your system cleaned up. If that does not work come back and let me know and we can further troubleshoot the issue!!
