Could be virus, or your hard drive is going bad. Click Start, Run, type chkdsk.exe, and tell it to run upon next reboot. That will give you an idea about the hard drive. If no errors, then run a full system scan with your Anit Virus. Update it first.

Would it be best, to have virus removed before getting new laptop? or keep it?

Sorry not sure what it is you are asking here, do you mean to repair the old computer versus buying a new one? If so then yes repair the old one. Buy a virus software made by Trend Micro systems, it is the best I have ever used. Here is a link to Trend

Delete cortana delete all types of Google? Please?

Hiya. Are you actually using a Windows XP PC, or are you the inside of Master Chief's head? :p

- Do you mean Google as in the internet browser?
- Do you mean Cortana as in the digital assistant? Because Cortana doesn't run on Windows XP, in fact it's not out for home computers yet at all, so you may have some sort of virus called Cortana on your computer - if so, do you have a virus/malware scanning program on your computer?

My computer has an administrator block on and it won't allow to me to connect to the internet how do i delete this problem

Create new User account that is an Administrator as an account type, then try to log in using this user account if this would not work still it means a virus program or your firewall is putting the restrictions. you can try to turn the firewall and the virus software temporarily or configure the firewall and the virus protection to allow your ISP to run in your computer

Monitor freezes up


If your monitor is freezing up, this could be a virus problem or the hard disc on the personal computer is over loaded, meaning the hard disc is nearly full or almost full, you will need to scan your system to ensure the system is virus free, if that did not solve the problem, ensure delete unuseful program or data from the hard disc and also delete unusable icon on the screen of your monitor. this will help solve the problem.

Take care.

Why do I have to go through the Start, Shut Down, process twice before my computer will shut down?

keeping it updated dont mean you dont have one when your computer dont shut down there is a parasite program keeping it on you need to check it, anti virus protection only protects against known viruses not one that has not been detected yet, once one is found then a program is made to fight and delete it, not before
