Re: speed up computer
Well you could download a spyware remover and run it to make sure you don' t have any spyware slowing the process down, always run a full system scan at least once a week and make sure you antivirus are up to date along with your windows update. You could also delete cookies, history and files out of your internet options, also defrag your computer at least once a week to, and another thing you could do is delete files off the computer from the control panel remove program tab. hope this helps. If you don't wanna do all that juts take your computer to a local repair shop and they will clean your computer usually at a good cost.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

The problem could be any one of the things mentioned below.
1) It could be that you need more memory. Check you laptop to see what is the maximum amount of memory it will hold and if you can upgrade it to more then do it. Click Start/Control Panel and look for System or System and Performance. Click it and it will tell you how much memory you have. You can go to the website of: http://www.4allmemory.com to see what is the total capacity your computer will hold.
2) It could be that the site you war watching the movie from is experiencing heavy traffic or their site is just slow. When you watch a movie in your dvd player does it stall? If it does it's your computer and you need more memory or you might have a virus or infection that is causing it to be slow and freeze.
3) Some internet service providers have different line speeds and you might have a slow line speed. For example, AT&T sells different line speeds and if you purchase the low end (cheapest) then your download and upload speed will be very slow. If you are watching movies online then the streaming (downloading) to your computer could be impacted by the slow line speed.
the best video card depends on what you want to do with it. if you only plan to watch movies, it's no use of spending lots of money on a high-end graphics adapter. if you're more of a hardcore gamer, then the only thing i could say is this: look for a graphics card with as much video memory and as high a clock speed as possible. and try to avoid the brand MSI in combo with Abit system boards, since this may cause hardware conflicts and compatibility issues...
The problem you are facing is due to a corrupt profile, do not delete your current profile, just create a new gamer tag profile on the same xbox 360 and download the media update from Xbox Live, you would be able to play DivX movies again offline.
Before you create the new gamer tag, delete the old instance of media update downloaded earlier to play DivX movies
I faced similar problem, it got resolved after creating a new gamer tag.
