You may need to scan it to clean all the rubbish out.
Not virus infections but other stuff you get when on the net.
AdAware from Lavasoft, and Spybot Search and Destroy will get rid of loads if it's never been done.
Also try a registry cleaner. Reg Mechanic from PC Tools is excellent for repairing a corrupt registry.
When you have done that check for programs which startup when you switch on.
You can see exactly what starts by typing msconfig in the Run box on the start menu and pressing enter. Then click the Startup tab at the top. You can disable things you don't want to start by unticking them.
When you have finished click Apply and restart the computer.
When it starts up a box will pop up in the middle of the screen just to tell you that you have changed things. Tick the little white box on the left of the popup and click OK, then it won't popup again.

My laptop was hanged from last one hour how to start of samsang compeny


If I understand correctly; your laptop is hanging( hung in a loop ) and unable to function. I suggest a "Hard Shutdown". This will allow the computer to restart. Press and hold down the laptop's power button for approximately 15 seconds. The laptop should power off then press the power button normally and it will restart. Start up may take longer especially if you are using a Windows Operating System. The Operating System may detect that there was a problem and will attempt to correct. Simply follow the onscreen prompts. Good Luck.

Hang problem


Computers, no matter the make or the model, have a tendency to freeze up. This typically occurs when you overload the RAM on the computer and the laptop can not process any more information. When your laptop freezes, you are not left with many options, so you'll you need to restart the system.

1.Press and hold "CTRL," "ALT" and "Delete" at the same time. Wait and see if a prompt window loads. If one does you can select the program causing the crash and close it. This allows you to return to using the laptop.
2.Push and hold the power button until the system turns off. Typically, you need to hold the power button down for a few moments before the laptop shuts down.
3.Remove the power cord from the laptop if the power button does not turn the computer off. Occasionally this can occur, in which case you need to find an alternative way of cutting the power.
4.Flip the laptop over if the power button is not turning the computer off. Find the battery compartment on the bottom of the laptop and remove it from the computer. Momentarily the computer shuts down. Leave the battery out for a few moments.
5.Insert the battery back into the computer and press the power button. Shortly, the computer restarts and begins to load the operating system.

I hope you find it very helpful.

My toshiba laptop permanently stays on logging off mode,and its been like that for 2 days.


It's not good to leave your laptop hanging like that. Press and hold the power button until it turns off. If you are unable to turn it off by holding the power button, press ctrl + alt + delete at the same time. (all three keys) Then choose windows task manager. Click on "shut down" and wait for the pc to turn off.
