Run a virus checker as soon as you can. then run a different one. Then run a spyware checker such as "malware bytes" or "spybot" both of which can be used free.

I'm unsure how to restore my Acer Aspire 5810t to Factory Settings


Hello,

just to clarify: Restoring a computer to its original factory settings also cleans up the C drive and removes all the viruses and old programs that bog down a computer and make it slow and unresponsive. You can do it by following steps below:

  1. Click Start -> Programs -> Acer Recovery Management, a dialg box will pop up
  2. Click Restore, then Restore Sysyem to Factory Default
  3. A warning box will pop up, read it carefully, and in case you really want to restore your factory settings, press Yes
  4. As a last, just press Start

Click anything at mail.yahoo.com nothing happens


Who is your ISP, contact them and report slow pages loading. Have you tried this on another computer on a differnt network? Slow pages loading is the result of either a slow internet connection or a busy network. Time of day also affect the quality of your connection to a free service.

My computer is very slow


on your desktop click on START, then click on RUN, a small windows will open. Type in (msconfig) without the parenthesis., this will open the system configuration windows and make sure (Normal startup is selected) then click on the (STARTUP) tab, click on disable all and then click on APPLY and then OK. a message windows will appear to restart your computer, click on DO NOT RESTART NOW buttom. this will disable programs that start with windows when you turn on your computer to make your computer start faster.

Use this link to learn how to speed up your computer:
http://www.microsoft.com/AtWork/getstarted/speed.mspx
I also recommend using an anti-virus software like (Kaspersky, Norton, Trend Micro or McAfee) internet security software to scan and protect your PC.

You can also download and install Glary Utilities from this website:
http://www.glarysoft.com/

also Run Microsoft Update to download new drivers and software updates to make sure your pc has enough resources to run programs.

My advice is do not run too many programs at the same time, this may cause your system to freeze and become unresponsive.

Comment back if this doesn't help and lets go deep into making your computer faster like running SYSTEM RESTORE, UPGRADING MEMORY, etc.
Good Luck.

My laptop does not fully hibernate!


Unfortunately , hibernation issues are tough to pin down.

See this link

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/907477


Basically says , meh could be anything.

One thing you can do to narrow it down is to go to Start > My Computer > RIGHT click on My Computer > click Manage > expand Event Viewer > Click on Applications and see if you have any Red ! around the time it was supposed to be hibernating.

If you see a message like "application hang" you can try uninstalling and reinstalling that particular app.

An easier way is to use a program called smart shutdown.

http://lifehacker.com/5046541/smart-shutdown-offers-more-ways-to-turn-off-your-pc

This program will kill any unresponsive programs and keep trying to hibernate until successful.

Hope this helps. Good luck!
