You have something hogging your PC resources and or a virus.

To start. Start the PC but before it starts to load windows press the F8 key to get the pre-boot menu. Select Safe Mode and it will boot into windows with only the core functions running.

Go to control panel add/remove programs and remove all uneccessary programs. You should also try and keep 10% of your hard drive space free.

Go to run and type in msconfig then press enter
Go to startup tab and untick all unneccesary items.

Go back to Run and type chkdsk/f
This will force a full check disk and fix after restarting.

Once you can boot into windows even if it is still slow, ensure you have a good antivirus. You can get a avast home for free from
Install this and run a full system scan.

Then download Spybot Search and Destroy from and install, select immunize and then, update and do a full scan which could take a while if you have loads of files.

Then do windows updates.

After most things, right click on My Computer and properties, then system tools and then deframent, run a degragment on C drive and then all other hard drives.

The whole process is probably going to take you around 2 days withthe scanning and defragmenting.

Alternatively if you have backups of your data, you can format your drive do a clean re-install of Windows Operating System.

Okay i have a '89 ford f150 4x4 standard single cab short wheel base with a 302 & i just replaced the thermostat 180 degrees & replaced the fan clutch because thermostat stuck & fan clutch was bad & it ran...

Its possible that you got a faulty thermostat that is actually sticking open and not allowing the water to actually heat up to temperature. Try checking the heater and see if you actually have heat. If not, I would start there and purchase another thermostat. It's the cheapest route and I have purchased bad ones myself.

Windows 7 slow starting up

Yes! you have way to many programs on startup, go to and download ccleaner, it will clean out all junk files if you can get it to install, if not got to my computer, right click on c drive (hard drive) and select properties and click, click on disk cleanup and follow the prompts, next click on tools at the top, click on check now this will check for errors on the hard drive, when finished select defrag, this will increase performance on the computer.

Its slow loading up and sometimes dosent load up at all when it does load up it dosent show any mail its all blank

The first thing you should check is to try if your operating system boots in safe mode.
If it does you may want to check for viruses or malware in your computer.
After you cleaned your pc you should restore your operating system by windows cd.
Pay attention, if you can enter in safety mode you should do a backup of all of your data before doing anything

Click anything at nothing happens

Who is your ISP, contact them and report slow pages loading. Have you tried this on another computer on a differnt network? Slow pages loading is the result of either a slow internet connection or a busy network. Time of day also affect the quality of your connection to a free service.

Computer turns on but freezes and doesnt load applications

Sounds like your computer is a old one, or is slow. The problem could be little RAM, which is what the computer calls speed and how fast it will open things, the CPU is too small, which is the main processing unit and causes slow speeds if it is not one of the latest CPUs or your Hard Drive is full and doesn't have enough free room to run anything well. Fist thing i want you to do is run a virus scanner to make sure you have n viruses causing the problem. if its all clear go into my computer, find the C Drive and right click on the icon and go into properties and check its free room. if its less than 250MB delete programs you don't use or don't need anymore. Now go into Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools and open Disk Defragmenter and Click on Defragment to begin the process. This will give you more free room and give it a small boost of speed in opening programs. This can take a very long time, talking hours so best to do it at night. A good way to boost your computers speed is to give it Virtual Memory, Which turns some of your hard drive into RAM. Right Click on My computer>Properties>Advanced and look for Performance and press 'Settings'>Advanced> and find Virtual memory and press change and click on the 'Custom size button' and Put '1024' into 'Initial size(MB) and put '2048' into 'Initial size(MB) and then click set then ok. It may ask you to reset your system. Do this. Now see if your application programs load faster. if not its a hardware problem and take it into a computer Technitian to get some more RAM in it to speed it up.

Hope This Helps

When clicked it actually double clicks

go to the start menu, go to the control panel, and then click on the one labeled "mouse" and go to the "buttons" tab and slow down the double-click speed until it doesnt do it anymore.

Well i have the motorola v6 maxx and it came with a disc and software to put it on but you can try a different way. Open my computer and there should be a removable device as if it was a flash drive or (usb stick) double click on the icon and then click on DCIM or any other folder until you find DCIM which stands for digital camera images and just cut or copy and past into theh folder you want

If this doesnt work let me know cause i might have another way :)
