I have windows 10 on my ASUS. Ever since i upgraded from Windows 7 to 10 I have had major issues. Its not the hardware. has to be OS.It runs amazing for 8hrs If I resart the computer it runs amazing..

First thing is that if all the updates for windows 10 are installed, then windows defender from Microsoft is installed and running. It has been given high grades in detection and protection tests lately and it is all you need. If you have another program like bit defender running with it, they fight or can hog resources. When you say that it starts to slow down, what are you doing with it? If you are mostly using it for internet browsing then the issue is likely based in cache. There are a lot of things that can be changed in the settings that reduce the usage of resources also and that is a consideration.

Windows Device manager conflict

Fully working Device will have no symbol on the respective device so as far as windows is concerned there is no conflict. However if the BIOS shows a Device Conflict Error with the PCI bus you will have a conflict in Windows.


  • A black exclamation point (!) on a yellow field indicates the device is in a problem state. Note that a device that is in a problem state can be functioning.

  • A red "X" indicates a disabled device. A disabled device is a device that is physically present in the computer and is consuming resources, but does not have a protected-mode driver loaded.
  • A blue "i" on a white field on a device resource in Computer properties indicates that the Use Automatic Settings feature is not selected for the device and that the resource was manually selected. Note that this does not indicate a problem or disabled state.
  • A green question mark "?" in Device Manager means that a compatible driver for this device is installed, indicating the possibility that all of the functionality may not be available. Note that this applies only to Windows Millennium Edition (Me).
NOTE: Some sound cards and video adapters do not report all of the resources they are using to Windows. This can cause Device Manager to show only one device in conflict, or no conflicts at all. This can be verified by disabling the sound card, or by using the standard VGA video driver to see if the conflict is resolved. Note that this is a known problem with S3 video adapters and 16-bit Sound Blaster sound cards, or those sound cards that are using Sound Blaster emulation for Sound Blaster compatibility

Free PC Firewalls that work.

This is a very simplified guide only to Commercial Quality Free Firewalls.
A lot of us already know about these, but it's intended for those of us who don't.

I will post other Tips about other highly rated Free Security Programs depending on the responses here.

Before you decide, just bear in mind that no software suits everyone or every PC or OS. There are also personal likes, dislikes,foibles and resource usage issues that will no doubtedly please or irk some people here. It's a guide only.

These reviewed free utilities are all similarly rated and are a good contender for equalling or even exceeding some of the top rated paid commercial software.

Most Firewalls are renowned for their annoying chatter. Those screens you see with warnings such as "Do you......." or "Firewall Needs.........." etc. This is what they are supposed to do. Some chatter may be just a bit too much for the average PC user to cope with and you may opt for a less aggressive, but less secure or less configurable Firewall. That's a personal thing that each of us needs to decide.

I simplified and reviewed 3 out of the top few contenders, tho there may be other similarly good or bad ones in your opinion.

Comodo Security Suite (includes optional Antivirus)
32 bit and 64 bit bit compatible - Yes. Separate downloads.
HIPS protection - Yes
Ease of use - 5/10. Should improve after learning curve
Overall Protection - 9+/10 (user error not included)
Resource usage - One of the highest, but expected with this type of performance.
User configuration - 8/10 after learning curve.
Updates - Auto or Manual
Exceeds the performance requirements of paid commercial products.
Can be very daunting and extremely annoying for first time users.
An excellent and huge help file is included that should be read thoroughly.
Not recommended if you are annoyed easily or a bit lazy to read the seemingly initial constant chatter.

Online-Armour Free
32 bit and 64 bit compatible - Yes for Vista and W7. XP is 32bit only.
HIPS protection - Yes
Ease of use - 7/10 after learning curve.
Overall Protection - 9/10 (user error not included)
Resource usage - A bit less than Comodo
User configuration - 5/10. There's some questionable user configured disabling features and software installer annoyances that may turn some users off this, otherwise it is excellent.
Updates - Auto or Manual
Similar to the performance requirements of paid commercial products but with some items locked out in the free version. Chatter is still annoying, but not as aggressive as Comodo

PC Tools Firewall Plus
32 bit and 64 bit compatible - Yes. For Vista and W7. XP is 32 bit only.
HIPS protection - Yes
Ease of use - 6/10. Help is very sparse.
Overall protection - 8/10 (user error not included)
Resource usage - Noticeably less than the above
User configuration - 4/10. The minimal help may be an issue and some items are only available in paid version. Ads in Free version can be annoying.
Updates - Auto or manual
Nearly as good as paid commercial products. Still has chatter you need to put up with.

Others you may consider : -

Outpost Firewall Free
Zone Alarm Free version
Inbuilt Windows 7 Firewall
Sunbelt Kerio

They are trying to get you to update your credit card information so they can charge you for their product. For most Windows Computers, for virus & malware protection, I recommend the following combination.
1. Microsoft Security Essentials (aka Windows Defender in Windows 8). It is free, effective and fairly unobtrusive.
2. Malwarebytes (the paid version) provides exceptional protection and is easy on the resources.
The combination of these two programs has served me (and many of my friends) well.
Good luck.

Gateway gt5453e constantly freeze or fun slow

If you have more than one virus protection program installed, get rid of all but one - they'll fight each other for system resources. Windows security programs need a lot of resources, so make sure you have at least 1.5 GB of RAM installed.
I would bet that if you look at the hard drive light when the machine is slow or seemingly stalled, it will be on almost continuously, meaning the system is spending a lot of time waiting for the hard drive. You can check this by typing <ctrl>-<alt>-<del> to open Task Manager, then clicking the Performance tab to check on drive and CPU activity.
Windows XP is pretty much broken on older machines - it is too overloaded with security patches to run well with most anti-virus programs. Upgrade to Windows 7 if you can afford it (but make sure you have at least 2 GB RAM installed, maxing out at 4 GB is better).
