Hello, there are a few things you can try. The problem may be that you have too many processes running at once in the background, some of which could be Spyware and others harmless progs just being a nuisance.

1. Disk Cleanup - Go start - progs - accessories and system tools. Run Disc Cleanup and follow instructions.

2. Run disk defragmenter from the same menu. This will order you files better. If you try to find a file in a filing cabinet with no order its hard, but to find a file in an alphabetically ordered cabinet its easy and quick.

3. Download a good Spyware protector ie spybot, spyware terminator.

4.Stop programs that are not required from booting at startup. Type "msconfig" in the search or run box, hit enter. Click on the startup tab and here you have a list of progs that boot on startup (ticked ones). Then if you keep that window open go to this link.

http://www.processlibrary.com

Any process that you are unfamiliar with, just type its name into the process library database to see if it is required or harmful to your system. If not needed, simply de-select.

This will take maybe 30mins or so and is well worth doing.

5. Buy some more RAM for your pc. Its cheap and easy to do. Usually just 4 screws to unscrew and plug and play.

Hope all this helps.

Jim

Why is my screen forever freezing up on me


That can result from a virus attack. The viruses are capable of filling up your memory and makes computer operations very slow and eventually freeze. Or it can be a result of a failing hard drive. I suggest that you install an antivirus software, update it and run a full system scan. Restart your computer

Youtube keeps stalling, plays for 20secs then just stops?


YouTube freeze can happen due to many reasons. Major reasons are overload on website, simultaneous running of many programs on your computer, Low RAM, Slow internet connection or corrupt windows registry.

For smooth watching of YouTube Videos take following actions:
1. Watch videos at off peak times, if possible

2. Do not run other programs while watching videos. They slow down computer in general by making use of memory.

3. Add RAM on your computer. More RAM will make easy execution of heavy programs on your system.

4. Get better and speedy internet connection. Talk to your ISP in this regard.

5. Regularly clean windows registry. Windows registry is vital place that stores information for important computing functions. A congested or corrupted windows registry makes computer slow that causes YouTube like freezes. For this, get the best registry cleaner reginout cleaner and optimizer. Use it once in a fortnight for fast computing to avoid YouTube freezes and system slow down.

My pc.. desktop is very slow.. its a windows vista


You may want to look into upgrading your RAM if there is less than 2GB installed. This is a recommendation that I have found in working with several PC's running this Operating System. Also, you would want to run disk clean up and remove any temporary files that Windows finds. Deleting any other temporary or unused files from your PC on a regular basis should increase system performance. In addition, if these steps do not solve your problem, you may want to consider upgrading to a faster performance hard drive (preferably a SATA II with a 32MB cache). As a last resort, you may look at your CPU to see if there is an upgrade for it, as well. Keep in mind that Vista is a resource hog and can slow down a PC within just a short period of time.

Perhaps there's something that is running in the background that is slowing your machine down?
Another thing that might help you is to empty your cache memory.
