First how much memory do you have? How much memory is free? Next check what processes are running (the task manager is a good place to start). Use msconfig.exe (Start > Run > msconfig) to disable programs from launching at boot up. Check the system for viruses and other malware. What browser are you using and what plugins are loaded. Try disabling all the plugins and reenable them one at a time. There may be one that is a resource hog.

The other standard issues to check: clear the browser cache (Tools > Internet Options for IE, Tools > Options > Advanced > Network tab in Firefox) , run the defragmentation utility on the hard disk (Computer > right click on Local Disc (C:) and choose Properties > Tools). Use a registry cleaner to compact the Windows registry (very carefully - back up the registry first).

I hope this helps.

Does rebooting help fix pc game issues


The game usually comes with a minimum spec for the computer. The game may require better graphics or more memory. What is the game? What is the computer? Are you saying the game runs fine in WinXP/Win7 but not win 8?
Rebooting will only help fix an issue if the computer has been bogged down by a program (or programs) that are misbehaving. If you have a game that requires all your PC to run, you can try quitting everything that runs in the background.
Most games have options you can also tweak. Try selecting a lower screen size, lower graphic details,etc ..

Facebook keep freezing up everytime I scroll down the page with the mouse, and is extremely slow when trying to post comments. Everything else on the computer is working fine.


Try using facebook in a different browser and see if that solves the problem. You could have a bad addon or toolbar thats causing the browser to freeze up.

My facebook wall is running slow and freezing up. The games are normal, so are other peoples walls its only mine. why?


First, small size of RAM makes computer slow. When we use many programs at one time, computer tends to bogged down. Since, uploading/viewing pictures or watching videos on Facebook use many resources, it can result in freeze. This problem can be cured by increasing the size of RAM. An increased RAM size will make sure that enough space is available to run many programs at the same time.

Secondly, corrupt windows registry cause freezes in computer. With passage of time, registry becomes congested and corrupt. Registry is most vital part of the computer system that stores and use vital information.A neat and clean registry ensures smooth and fast computing. Clean registry means no Facebook kind of freezes. For this, you need to use the best registry cleaner. It will solve the problem of such freezes. Registry cleaner reg in out should be used regularly. Additionally, it will speed up computer for all other programs.

My Facebook chat window freezes up when someone responds to me


Try Using Different Browsers other then IE explorer 8 or below, they have problems working with new chat windows and stuff that it don't really recognize. For instance try firefox,opera,google chrome,safari 4

One of these would have to work with facebook, if not make sure you have enough RAM space to even run anything other then browser sometimes a slow machine can just freeze from working it self to hard.
