If the freeze happens every time a certain hardware device
is plugged in or switched on, the device itself might be to blame. Check
the manufacturer's website for updated drivers for the device, and
download and install them to erase any bugs that might exist in your
version. Similarly, if the freeze only happens when using one particular
application, that program might also be the root cause. Check the
developer's website for updates. If the problem persists, uninstall and
reinstall the program. This process replaces any software files or
settings that may have been damaged or deleted.
Overwhelming a PC's processor or memory by requests can also lead to the
computer freezing up. If the issue occurs when large files or complex
applications are being handled, shut down any running application or
background utilities you don't need for the project you're working on.
This frees up CPU time and RAM space. Within individual programs, avoid
opening up multiple files or websites at the same time. If the problem
persists and if opening multiple large files simultaneously can't be
avoided, consider a hardware upgrade Please follow this instruction.
Have you tried check the file associations? Try re-associating the application that your OS uses to open a type of file. To do this, find a file of the type that you want to associate with a certain program. Right-click on this file and go to properties. Under the general tab, find the line that says "Opens with", select change. Now a new window will pop up asking you to select a program to use to open files of the same type.

dentifying the fingerprint readerA fingerprint reader provides extra security for the PC. The VeriSoft Access Manager by Bioscrypt uses the fingerprint reader to identify the user, and controls access to Windows or other secure systems. Instead of typing a User ID and password, you can move your finger across a sensor to logon or start commonly used applications. Verisoft Access Manager can manage all of your different secure accounts and the required user names and passwords by recognizing your fingerprint.On HP notebook PCs, the fingerprint reader is a small metallic sensor located near the keyboard or display. By swiping your finger perpendicular to the metallic sensor you can logon to the PC, a network, or open a program.
Before you can use the fingerprint reader, you must set up the fingerprint reader by registering your fingerprint with the Access Manager.
Set up the fingerprint reader
To set up the fingerprint reader to recognize a user, the user must have a logon account on the PC and the account must have a password. Multiple users can be registered for the fingerprint reader if each has their own user account.
In Windows, double-click the VeriSoft Access Manager icon in the notification area of the taskbar to open the My Identity window.
Alternately, click Start > All programs > Verisoft > My Identity .
Click Log On to open the VeriSoft Logon Wizard. Click Next to begin.
Enter the User's Windows password in the Password field on the Introduce Yourself page, and click Next .
If you have successfully logged on to Windows, click Finish to close the wizard.
Click Register Fingerprints on the My Identity window, to open the VeriSoft Logon Wizard. Click Next to begin.
Select a finger shown on the hand graphic, and then slowly swipe your finger across the sensor. One of the squares below the hand graphic will change color when the scan is accepted. A message displays if the scan is not accepted.
Swipe the same finger across the sensor again until all four squares change color, then clickNext to register the finger print.
If you need to start over during the fingerprint registration process, right-click the highlighted finger on the screen and then click Start Over .
If prompted to register a second fingerprint, click a different finger on the hand graphic, and then repeat steps 5 and 6.
After using the Registration Wizard to registered at least 2 fingers, click Finish .
To set up the fingerprint reader for a different Windows user, log on to Windows as that user and then repeat steps 1 through 8.
After registering your fingerprint you can log off and then use your registered fingers to log on to Windows.
