Sounds like someone managed to get a "backdoor virus" on your computer that allows a third party access to your computer for sending spam, Denial of Service Attacks, etc....

That activity consumes computer resources slowing down your operations to a crawl.

Most good anti-viruses will remove them I use Norton 360 and a few others to catch anything the other misses. I Use Norton 360 for the firewall...

My compaq CQ56-219WM (recently restored to factory settings) runs extremely slow and i get a constant "high CPU useage" message. how do i fix this please?


When Norton is active it scans the computer for viruses and this will slow the computer down until it finishes.
You computer will improve with more RAM especially if has 512Mb of RAM.

Very slow and I keep getting the white screen about restoring active desktop. Then it won't let me restore.


You will need to try reloading the operating system of the computer, this is on the recovery disks you should have made when you first bought the laptop. If you do not have the disks contact the manufacturers support site for details on ordering the recovery disks

Running slow pop ups all the time


You more than likely have an infection. The problem is, removing an infection is a lot easier said than done. While your computer is running, so is the virus. And it would be like attempting to delete a picture, while you're looking at the picture. The computer will yell at you and tell you the file is in use. There are tons of guides on the internet as to how to easily remove a virus, but I will give you the short of it. If you don't have any antivirus active protection; Microsoft Security Essentials is free and pretty good. Download and install that. MalwareBytes and Spybot S&D (Search and destroy) are both fantastic at virus removal, but don't have active protection.
Download the three of these, install them, then restart your computer. As it is turning on, press F8 and then navigate to Safe Mode. Run all three scanners (not at the same time, and you might have to restart in between) and your computer should be much better off if this was the case. If this doesn't do much for your situation, at least you now have active antivirus protection.
Lastly you need to be VERY careful about the popups. Many of them advertise that your computer is infected and to buy "their" antivirus software. The problem is, that software is a scam and you will lose your money. And remember when you have big issues like running slow with popups all the time, you can always take it to a local tech shop if you're not comfortable with doing the work yourself. However this kind of repair can cost up to about $200.

Why is there slow printing when I type from key pad to the computer screen


this will happen when your computer is over loaded , that is the memory is over loaded, when it is over loaded , the system hangs and makes every thing work slow. This is the right time for a virus to gain entry because the system will work slow that by the time the virus gains access , the system takes time to activate the antivirus or the firewall.
So i recommend you to clean up your PC and increase your system memory.

Thanks for rating Good luck
