Hi,

You should check this link :

By stating frezing yo meant the cursor freezes or the video freezes.

Try running a thorough scan and chck for any infections.

Try removing any p2p software that you use, because it thinks you have a email spam program running it then kicks in emproxy which runs at 100% and locks up your computer, if you do get an error after reboot Vista reports you have a video driver error, but that's only because it didn't have any cpu available to display graphics.

Try changing the powr settings to high performance from the balanced.

Always kep the drivers updated.

Use the good anti-virus softwae.

U can use kaspersky - you have to buy this.

And "Avast" - is a free one. you can register in their website 'www.avast.com' and they would give you a one year subscription for free for the home user.

Its very fast and won't even allow the malware and adware and trojans into your computer.

Good Luck.

Live, Love, Laugh.

Cant remember password for lap top how do I use command prompt to open laptop without password


magooster857,
You cannot use a command prompt to find the password of your computer.If you made a recovery disk from within Windows you can boot to it to recover your password. You will need to purchase software online to recover your password or reinstall Windows.

Thank You,

The laptop freezes every 3 seconds


Well, caramelapopc, if you haven't upgraded the amount of RAM/memory in the laptop at any point, it is completely understandable that you might experience slowdowns. When Windows Vista was released, some manufacturers marketed laptops with only 1 GB of memory. This is the bare minimum for Vista to run, and as Vista got more bloated with updates and service packs, that 1GB gets pushed to it's limit. Acer was actually sued for selling laptops with only 1GB of RAM and Windows Vista because the laptops didn't meet the minimum system requirements for Vista after the video adapter had allotted say ~100MB for itself. My recommendation would be to go to www.crucial.com, look up your laptop by manufacturer and model number, and purchase more memory from them. You'll see a significant increase in smoothness, basically, it'll be back to like new again.
