Question about Toshiba Satellite M100 Notebook
First thing to do is Back up the Registry. I'll be saying more about the Registry later. But suffice it to say that the presence of uninstalled security
software in the Registry can conflict with newly installed securitysoftware and cause system freezes. So can folders of "uninstalled"programs for that matter. Once again, go to Start, then click on "Run". Type in "regedit" Go to the top of the Regedit window. Click (+) next to HKEY_CURRENT_USER. Go down the thread until you see Software.
Click on Software and scroll down the thread until you see Symantec. Right click on Symantec and choose "Delete". From there go down to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and repeat step
3. Restart your PC. Click (+) next to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, now: Click (+) next to Software,Click (+) next to Microsoft, Click (+) next to Windows and Click (+)next to CurrentVersion. Select the Run folder. Right-click and delete each Symantec entry you see (if present). Restart your PC.

Well if you want to delete click start->run->type "msconfig" In the configuration window click on services tab. Uncheck all the entries named symantec or norton. Now click on STARTUP tab and uncheck the symatec startup entries. Now restart the computer and try deleting once again. By the way that access denied message is displayed because the file u want to delete is being used by some symantec service if unselect and restart they will be terminated so that you ca delete the folder.

Tips for a great answer:
Possible that PC is hanging up as there is fault on the OS ( operating system) or a virus in the OS. Also it is possible that the back up( CMOS) has low voltage or the memory card is a suspect. In this case you need to check the voltage and also try and swap a memory card. If not the OS is a suspect.
It is best to go for a paid antivirus software which you can get in a package. Personally we are not recommending any particular company but you can try with Avira, Antivir, AVG, Kaspersky. It is always best to install the antivirus when the installation of the OS is done.
Now before this you can open the internet options in the browser and clean all the cookies, temporary internet files, defragment the drives and RESTORE the PC to an earlier set date.
You can use a registry cleaner like Advanced system care. Download from the site and check you system for corrupt files. Also use a good antivirus software which is active to keep your system performing without an attack on the OS. Remove all unnecessary programs installed which you do not use all the time and clean up the drives. This will free up the space and make your system faster.
If there is no response but the PC tends to work slower and occasionally hanging when a program is being executed then you might have to install the OS once again. Install the OS and then an antivirus before the drivers of the PC is installed.
