Question about Dell Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My Dell Dimension 2400 running home XP is freezing up. I have a good virus program that is updated and run everyday. It freezes up on line and then closes the site but recovers it following another freeze. Even working off line, it is freezing.

Typically, freezing is caused by Spyware, Malware or memory.

First, install and run Spybot and Malwarebytes. If still a problem, power off your system and remove all the memory modules. Install one at-a-time and boot your system to see which module is problematic. Hope this helps.

You might have some viruses and malware..

Start your PC and press F8 several times until the boot menu comes up. Then select "Safe Mode with Networking". Now get some or ALL of the FREE programs below.

Download, Install and Run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware:

Computer keeps freezing


If you havent installed any software lately or made any changes to the software/hardware, most likely the "slowness"is coming from a potential virus. Try running a virus scan if you haven't already or taking it to a staples or somewhere that offers free tune ups.

I have a Dell Dimension 2400 series that is very slow & freezes.


It sounds like you might have spyware on you computer. The two iexplore files might be spyware. I am not sure about the teatime.exe file but there is a file called teatimer.exe which is associated with the SpyBot software. I usually recommend Webroot Spysweeper software to remove and keep the spyware off of computers.
If you have software such as SpyBot I would disconnect the computer from the internet (after you update the software to the most current definitions) and boot the computer to safe mode. Log in as an administrator and run your software. This should pick up spyware before it has a chance to load.

Run your anti virus and anti malware programs. If you do not have a anti malware program go to cnet.com and download a free anti malware program. It sounds as if you have a virus on your computer

Word perfect 10 freezes after 20-30 mins of use and won't print or save


Un-install program, restart PC than re-install program. That usually works for software issues.
Possible file corruption. Wouldn't hurt to run a virus scan of the entire system. ( is your virus scanner up to date?)

Good Luck & Kind Regards.
