Computer freezes when i log on

When ever I log on, it works fine for a while until I open up links or just simply use the internet. I try to scan my computer on my administrator account but I simply freezes during the process. I have to go to safe mode to keep using my computer. How can I fix the computer without it freezing on my administrator?

Got computer virus from the Email name "HEY"


It's unlikely that a virus from an email cut your Internet connection. Simply opening an email will not give you a virus. You have to open a link or download a file from the email. If you did neither of those things, then you don't have a virus. If you did either of those things, then run an anti-virus program on your computer.
If you have one already, open it up and activate a Full Scan. If you don't have one, use a different computer to download the .exe of Microsoft Security Essentials, transfer the file to your computer, and then install MSE. Run a Full Scan.
Honestly, though, we need more information.

The mouse froze up


Hi

First try rebooting your computer and see if it works.

else

Take a look at how many programs you have open when your mouse freezes up. If you are running multiple programs at once and have limited RAM, this can be a major cause of mouse freezing. The solution is either run fewer programs or simply purchase additional RAM.
You also want to make sure your mouse drivers are up to date. In these cases simply go to the manufacturer website and check for any driver updates you may have missed out on.
But the most common cause of mouse freezing is due to errors in the Windows registry. The registry contains settings and commands that are utilized by the mouse to run properly. When there are errors in the registry this can cause a breakdown in the communication between your mouse and system. When your computer cannot communicate properly it will lock up or freeze.
Unfortunately there is no way to manually fix this problem. The registry is an extremely complex directory that is also sensitive to alterations. If you adjust or remove the wrong registry files your entire system can collapse.
This is why I highly recommend scanning your computer with a top flight registry cleaner. Not only can it fix mouse freezing, it will also speed up your computer considerably. So stop asking why is my mouse freezing. Scan your computer for free below and fix the problem today.
Sick of your mouse freezing up? Want to repair computer errors the easy way? Scan your computer for free and fix corrupt registry problems with the #1 registry cleaner on the internet. After scanning your computer, I promise you will be quite surprised by all the errors on your system.

My laptop freezes after start up. I start the computer and it runs normal until right after log in. I have roughly 30 seconds to 1 minute after logging in before the fan turns on and the laptop starts...


when was the last time your computer worked fine? run system restore and choose a restore point prior to when the issue started. if no restore point is available, open run and enter 'msconfig', go to startup and disable unecessary startup programs. also open the prefetch folder and delete its contents. then restart your system. if it's still slow, i suggest you backup your files and reinstall windows. make sure that you operate the laptop on a flat surface to avoid any ventilation blockage. hope it'll help. good day. =)'

Computer Freezes when connected to internet.


The first step is to verify that you are not infected with a spyware or virus infection. The fact that you are only having freezing problems when you are connected to the internet is a sign that you may have some kind of infection.

The Geek Squad website has links to free online virus and spyware scanners that can tell you if you're infected.

If those scans come up as clean could you please post a Hijackthis log file so we can look at what processes you have running?

Internet explorer


Hi
It seems that your computer is infected with a spyware. I will give you some steps to try and resolve this.

Step - ( This will remove spy wares from the computer )
Open this link and download Free superantispyware
http://www.superantispyware.com/
Scan your computer with this and clean it.

If it does not let you download this, you need to try this in the "Safe mode with Networking"

Step to go to "Safe mode with Networking"
Turn off the computer. As soon as you turn it on start tapping the key "F8" untill you get a black screen with options of "Safe mode" and "Safe mode with Networking", select the second one and than log on to the computer.

Your display will be big and distorted in safe mode, dont worry as its a diagnostics mode.
Once downloaded the software you might need to rung the software in normal mode as sometimes this software does not work in the safe mode.
To get back to the normal mode. Simply restart your computer.

Hope this should take care of your issue.
