Re: laptop freeze problem

There is a possibility that there is a simple hardware conflict that causes overheating of the processor. System temperature can be seen in BIOS (Usualy by preesing F10 or del buttons right after trning the computer on). If you don't have expirience in working with BIOS, than it is the best not to open the BIOS at all without someone that hasexpirience.

Re: laptop freeze problem

Go to C/windows and look for a folder called Faultlog.txt. Open it and it should display all the faults that have occurred. Post a few so we can see if theres anything in particular thats causing it.
i would suggest that you reboot and get into Windows. Press [Ctrl] + [Alt] + [Delete] and click Task Manager. On the Performance tab, it will give you a reading for the amount of processor usage (which should only be a few percent when the system is sitting idle) and another counter for the amount of memory usage (this should be 192Mb, i.e. 196608Kb, or less). Minimise Task Manager.
When your PC starts freezing or looks like it's about to (if you can tell when it's going to happen), then try and bring up the Task Manager window again from the taskbar at the bottom of the screen. Has the processor usage shot up? What has happened to the memory usage? You might need to resize your screens so that you have the Task Manager running at the side whilst you continue working - that way, you'll be able to keep an eye on what's going on.
Give us some feedback about your results and we'll try and diagnose it further :)

Hyperlinks are off need on

What type of file are you trying to add. .bat.exe etc because some emails services deem these to be hacking tools and will not allow you to sent it to someone.

you could try and you a dropbox to save/send files

Freezes almost everyday .wont even turn off.always have to let battery run out then restart next day

When the computer freezes, you can remove the battery physically instead of having to wait the few hours for it to run down. Underneath the laptop are two tabs holding the battery in, just release them and pull it out.
Are you using the machine on a soft surface (bed, couch?) that would allow it to overheat and malfunction when it freezes? Are you overloading the CPU with too many overbearing programs? Perhaps you've got a virus?
You'll need to be more specific about what you are doing when the freezing occurs. This could be anything ranging from software to hardware faults.

I have a toshiba lap top which works fine off line but when on line freezes and even ctrl alt del wont help have to turn it off and on again

Sounds like a virus/malware situation. Many of them are inactive until a network connection is detected. Try scanning your computer using Malwarebyte's Anti-malware and Grisoft's AVG antivirus. Both are free for home use.
