Hi here is the best advise in your situation, do not download anything that offer free scan because they would scan your computer and tell you that your have errors that do not exist on the computer because they want you to buy their products. And some will intentionally infect your computer also.So if your computer is running slow you should follow these steps:go to start,all programs,accessories,system tools, and in system tools you will run DISK CLEANUP and DISK DEFRAGMENTOR. You can also go to http://download.cnet.com/ccleaner/?tag=mncol and download the CCLEANER install and run it daily
You should also click this link http://download.cnet.com/Spybot-Search-amp-Destroy/3000-8022_4-10122137.html?tag=mncol and download and install SPYBOT SEARCH & DESTROY these steps will speedup and cleanup all things that slow down the computer and make sure you have antivirus software on your computer.

Ican`t open mails always freezing and running very slow


Many things could cause your computer to run slow and experience freezing. Most commonly these problems come from malware and broken registries.
A simple solution to this problem is to use a registry cleaner and antivirus;
  • CCleaner is a free system optimization and privacy tool that erases Internet history and other unused files, and cleans up orphaned registry entries. It is the number-one tool for cleaning your Windows PC. It protects your privacy online and makes your computer faster and more secure. Easy to use and a small, fast download.

  • Use your antivirus program to perform a full system scan for malicious software.

    If you feel that your antivirus is inadequate, then I recommend you use Microsoft Security Essentials. It is a free anti-malware solution that helps protect you against viruses, spyware, and other malicious software.

It is running so slow!! It pauses and screen fades to light color! I cannont do my work!! Help!!


This could be for a couple of reasons, 1) you have a virus causing your laptop to crash or 2) you have a faulty Hard Drive.

Try downloading and running Hit Man Pro (an anti-virus software) that should clean up any viruses you have, download it here:

http://dw.com.com/redir?edId=3&siteId=4&oId=3000-2239_4-10895604&ontId=2239_4&spi=50fbf8256fc023103cca4ba60e4a71b1&lop=link&tag=tdw_dltext<ype=dl_dlnow&pid=11754089&mfgId=6302975&merId=6302975&pguid=CyZLHAoOYI4AAAxmYBAAAABD&destUrl=http%3A%2F%2Fdownload.cnet.com%2F3001-2239_4-10895604.html%3Fspi%3D50fbf8256fc023103cca4ba60e4a71b1

Run the scan and remove and viruses it finds and reboot the computer...see if this makes any difference, if not, try booting up in the recovery partition and repairing Windows.

Let me know if this helps
