AVG is good anti virus software which do not slow your system down and they do a free version, SuperAntispyware is also a good spyware program and again it's free.
If you google these you'll find them easy enough.

My laptop keeps freezing keeps saying not responding and is very slow


Sounds like it might be infected with spy-ware/malware or a virus! Get a program like Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware or AVG 2012 and scan you computer and see if it detects anything. I'm sure it will pick up something.. When did it start doing this? Please let me know if this was helpful and if itsolved the problem and good luck..

Two problems: 1. All the CD music I burn do not play in my car's and home stereo. 2. My computer is getting slow in opening programs and files.


are you burning the music cd's in the music format to be converted over and finalize the disk? you cant burn them as mp3s. if your able to fit more then 18 or so songs then you are burning it as an mp3/data disk instead of a music disk. if your computer is getting really slow i recommend you download an anti virus if you haven't already (such as avg FREE) and a spy ware malwayre removal called malwarye bites.

Computer is very slow websurfing, would changing the hard-drive from 100 gb to 320gb help alot with this, and if so, will I loose all my stored info?


you can check to see how much free space you have on your 100 gb drive ... just right click on the C: drive icon .. and then select "properties" .. if you have lots of space left then thats not your problem and a new 320 gb wont help .. if you see that you are running out of space (like less than 10 or 20 gb) then it will help .. you can transfer or ghost your entire drive over to the new drive if you have the proper equipment .. or if you take it somewhere to have it done .. you may have to reregister your operating system but that only takes a phone call or an internet click .. much more likely your computer is full of spy and ad-ware unless you have a good security suit that takes care of that sort of stuff ... if you dont have any anti spy-ware program then "spybot search and destroy" is a good start and its free ... some anti virus programs can really slow a computer down .. if you have a good one stick with it .. if you dont then AVAST or AVG are really good and free ... if you havent done so you can "clean up your hard drive" .. that includes getting rid of temporary file clutter and defragging the hard drive ..you should do that every couple of months or schedule it to happen at set intervals .. check how much memory you have .. most computers today should have 1gig or more memory .. if you have only 256 or 500 meg then things will run slow .. depending on what your operating system is .. XP will work ok on 500meg Vista wont .. ...both can benifit form increased memory ..

well you have many problems at the moment ,but my first efforts would be to run anti spy ware and anti virus program as they can do strange things to a computer, you can get both free from GRISOFT "AVG"

another option is to use the recovery disc's to re-install all the software back to the factory settings,as this will install all the drivers again for your sound & wifi and everything else.

good luck
