Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
Pc gets boots up fine and gets to my wallpaper and loads all the programs on my desktop but after bout 2 minutes the entire system freezes... Any ideas???
Without any specific info, I am just guessing that you have a virus or spyware issue. Try restarting in safe mode and run a good virus program, like AVG, or Avast, you can get a free version on the respective websites. Also you should have a good spyware program like adware pro, or Spybot search and destroy, the latter is donation supported shareware that I use on all machines. Run the Spybot search and destroy, first, you can try running that in normal mode first, some of these new variants are tricky and require several trial and error sweeps to remove this new threats. When you get finished, run a defrag, from the system tools. this is going to take you the better part of a day to clear up if it is what I believe it is. Your only other alternative is to do a "restore" to an earlier date, but if your machine is infected, it will just come back as it now has infected the restored backups also, also you will want to check on how many unnecessary programs are running in the background, control, alt, delete. will bring up the task mgr. and you can see what is running in the background. You may want to turn those off.

The computer freezes when it boots?
If so try to download spyware Terminator and Malwarebytes and run a full scan with both programs,
When you go the malwarebytes page download the free trial version. If your computer wont stay running long enough to do this try to boot in safe mode by pressing F8 or F10 before you see the windows loading screen

Restart your computer during the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the delete or F2 key
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS then using the arrow keys scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
note this will erase you operating system you will have to have an operating system disk to load it onto you hard drive or create a partition to load another operating system
note after you have loaded the operating system you should go back and change the first boot device to failsafe or optimised defaults
after windows has loaded
your computer will automatically restart it might restart 2 times one to finish the installation
the next will be because the operating system is loaded and will boot from your cd
if your installation disk is only a service pack 1 or 2 you might need to create an xp sp3 disk
if you have a copy of windows service pack there is a program that allows you add service pack 3 to it so you have a copy of xp sp3
hope this helps
