Does it just do that with one program? Which one? How much memory have you got in your computer?

Internet barely works


Step 1:
Most of the programs running in the background of your computer start automatically during PC reboot. These applications were added to the Windows startup menu during default installation. However, you probably do not need all of the programs that are currently running on your computer all the time. This only slows down your PC and the reboot time. Fortunately, you can access the Windows startup menu and remove the programs you do not need to have running automatically. Turning off the programs shuts them down until you enable them again through the "Start" menu.

Go to the "Start" menu, type "msconfig" in the "Start Search" box and press "Enter" to start the System Configuration utility. Click the "Startup" tab in the System Configuration window. Uncheck the programs that you want to turn off and stop from running in the background. Click "Apply" and "OK" to save the new settings. Restart your computer.

If it's stopping during a wash cycle, suspect the heater elemant not heating up and moving the controller on. See if it runs fine during a spin/drain cycle. If it is very slow on all programs, try the noise filter capacitor before condemning the controller.

My utube keeps freezing while watching my line dancing videos its stops during the dance.


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 reg in out and optimizer. Use it once in a fortnight for fast computing to avoid YouTube freezes and system slow down.

My computer takes a long time to boot up. Then sometimes it runs slow and sometimes it runs OK. Occasionally I get a message that virtual memory is low.


You have a program that is eating memory. To find which just stop all the programs from launching during boot, reboot and enable them one by one until the boot speed drops - uninstall the faulty program.

Too many program running at the same time. Uninstall the ones you don't use and stop the remaining ones to launch during boot - use this program for that

And do a general cleaning using CCleaner.

Slow start up


Slow startup is caused by programs that initialize during startup. THings like MSN messenger, any VPN software, or just about anything that runs in your system tray (down by the clock)  try removing things from your startup folder and setting programs not to start when windows starts. 

 

You can also shut down these programs from the run menu by running the msconfig command...but I suggest you research what you're turning off before you try that...as you could disable wanted processes,

 

Hope this helps.
