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?

How do I set up my email

Which email account do you want to set up ???...
Windows Live is a group of services offered by Microsoft on the Internet and through mobile Web browsers.
Users can sign up for Windows Live and access all of the services, including a calendar, messenger, social groups and parental controls.
When signing up for Windows Live, new users can choose to create a free email address.

Navigate to the Windows Live sign-up page.
Type a screen name in the "Windows Live ID" box and click "Check Availability" to see if the name is in use.
Choose the name carefully as this will be your email address.
Choose "" in the drop-down menu next to the "Windows Live ID" box.
Fill Out the rest of the information on the sign-up page and click "I Accept" to complete the registration of your email address.
Click "Mail" on your profile page to access your new email account.
Create A Yahoo Email Address
Yahoo offers free email accounts with add-ons such as a calendar, notepad and an automatic organizer.
Your Yahoo account is Web-based, so you can access your messages anywhere you have an Internet connection.
Once you complete the simple one-page registration form, you will also have access to all of Yahoo's features.
You can use your new email address to sign into Flickr, Yahoo Answers, Messenger and a variety of games and fantasy sports leagues.

Click the "Sign Up" link that appears below the "Sign In" option on the Yahoo homepage to create a new account.
Enter your name, gender, address and birth date on the appropriate lines.
Choose your Yahoo username.
Your username will also be your email address.
Make sure "" is selected from the drop-down list next to the email address.
Click the "Check" button to see if your desired email address is available.
Enter your desired password on both of the required lines.
The password must be typed exactly the same on both lines.
You will see a "Password Strength" bar indicating how difficult your password will be for a hacker to guess.
Select a "secret question" from the drop-down menu.
Yahoo will use this question to verify your identity if you lose your password.
Enter the answer to the question you chose from the menu.
Repeat this process to choose your second "secret question" and answer.
There is also an optional line where you can enter an alternate email address for Yahoo to send you password resetting instructions.
Enter the letters and numbers displayed in the image on the screen into the "image verification" line.
This proves that you are a human and not an automated script designed to open new Yahoo accounts.
Click the "Create My Account" button when you are finished completing all of the input boxes. You will then see your account details displayed on the screen.
You can print this page for your records, if needed.
Click "Continue" to proceed to your new email account.

Open your Web browser and go to the Gmail website.
Click the link "Create an account."
Type the requested information in the appropriate fields.
Check the availability of your desired log in name by clicking "Check Availability."
If the user name you selected is not available, try another log in name.
Gmail will also suggest alternative email addresses that are currently available.
Click "I accept. Create my account."
Verify your telephone number.
Gmail requires a telephone verification to help prevent spam and fraudulent use of Gmail's service.
You can choose to receive a voice call from Google or a text message on your United States based cellular telephone.
Type you telephone number and click "Send verification code to my mobile phone."
Check your mobile phone for your verification code or answer your telephone and write down the verification code given in the recorded message.
Type the verification code in the text field labeled "Enter your code" and click "Verify."
Wait while Gmail sets up your new account.
Click the button "Show me my account."
You can now send and receive emails using your new Gmail account.

Yahoo messenger freezes my asus laptop

Reinstall Yahoo Messenger. Don't uninstall the one you have or you will loose your settings and contacts. Just go into google and download and install Yahoo Messenger.

Get online and got to In the google search box type: "Download Yahoo Messenger" (without the quotes). Make sure you download and install it from Yahoo's site.

If you still have issues with it then you've got a virus or infection that is causing your system to freeze. Download and install MalwareBytes, then run a Quick Scan.

Go to and in the search box type: "Download cnet Malwarebytes" (without the quotes). Download and install malwarebytes from the sites download.cnet/malwarebytes. When the site opens up click on the Green Download button on the left. Do not click the Red Download button, that's junk. When it finishes installing the Gui Interface will open up with an offer to Accept a Trial Version or Decline. CLICK DECLINE you want the totally free version. Run a QUICK SCAN. As it scans, if it finds infections the number will be in red. When it finishes scanning, click SHOW RESULTS. A notepad text document will open up showing you the results. You can close the text document and go back to the Gui Interface where you will click REMOVE SELECTED RESULTS. The objects will already be selected for you. When it finishes removing the objects click ok and it will sometimes reboot your machine.

I have a Trojan virus, how do I get rid of it

How do you know you have a Trojan? Did your antivirus tell you? If so, what was the exact text of the message (especially the name of the virus)? If you have an antivirus installed, try using that to scan and delete it. Otherwise, search Google for the name of the virus and how to remove. If you can't figure it out, I might be able to find something related to that virus.

My yahoo mail is sending out emails to all my contacts. The message gives a link that is a virus. I have scanned with Norton antivirus, Spybot search and destroy and trojan guard. How do I...

The problem is not on your pc. Hence, there was no requirement of scanning your pc. The current problem is that your e-mail id has been compromised. The messages which are being sent are not being done from your pc. They are being done through some other pc. Hence, now what you require is to change your password, security question and answers alongwith you dob and address what all you can change just change it and do it fast. Don't autosave your password on your pc try to remember it.

That is probably because a virus had corrupted the Norton Antivirus installed on your computer, or because the antivirus has expired.

  1. Check that Antivirus is not to be renewed
  2. Reinstall the Antivirus.
