Its probably a virus eating up your system files. try to do a scan with your antivirus software. if you dont have an antivirus software try to use the Free Version of AVG. hope this helps.

Get an application that allows you to kill tasks (task manager) and boost your phone memory and clear the memory cache. Before starting your game, kill all the tasks you do not need, clear the cache and boost the phone's memory. See if this helps.

Computer freezes, computer stuck


There could be a number of causes for a <span style="font-weight: bold;">computer freezing up</span>, or not responding all together. <br /><br />-If your computer frequently freezes up, lags, or is slow, this could be because of <span style="font-weight: bold;">poor performance</span>. At some point in the future after a computer is purchased, the hardware will be to old for it to handle newer programs. In a lot of cases you will need to purchase a new computer or upgrade the processor, memory, hard drive and motherboard. This usually is not needed for a number of years. There are a number of programs you can use to monitor your computer performance. I would recommend starting off with <span style="font-weight: bold;">task manager</span> which is built into Microsoft Windows. <br /><br />To use task manager, press Ctrl + alt + delete on your keyboard. Task manager should open up. In task manager go to the <span style="font-weight: bold;">performance tab</span>. In this tab, you can see various computer statistics. I recommend you have this open around the time you experience poor computer performance or hang ups. <br /><br />-Another possible cause is the computer is <span style="font-weight: bold;">overheating</span>. Overheating can be caused by having a computer in a poor ventilated space. It can also be caused by internal computer fans that have stopped working. Some computers will have a auto shut down when temperatures get to high. <br /><br />Make sure your computer is a ventilated room with good air flow.<br /><br />If computer fans are no longer working, make sure the fan cables are plugged firmly into the motherboard. You will have to turn the computer off, open up the computer to do this. Make sure you have no static on yourself or you could damage the computer. Touch something metal before doing this or use a anti-static mat/wrist strap.<br /><br />You can use a program called <a href="http://www.almico.com/speedfan.php">SpeedFan</a> to monitor computer temperatures. <br /><br />-Sometimes after you <span style="font-weight: bold;">install software, new updates or new device drivers</span> this can cause software bugs that will <span style="font-weight: bold;">crash</span> the computer, cause it to freeze up or not properly boot. If this is the case, you will want to uninstall the software you installed before the problem started. If you are unable to do this, you can boot your computer into safe mode and use System Restore which will restore the computer to a earlier working state.<br /><br />To check <span style="font-weight: bold;">updates and uninstall</span> them in Windows, you can go to Add and Remove programs through Control Panel. <br />You can uninstall device drivers by going to Device Manager through Control Panel. <br /><br />To perform a <span style="font-weight: bold;">System Restore</span>, go to Start &gt; programs &gt; Accessories or System tools &gt; System Restore. Choose a restore point before the problem started.<br /><br />If you are unable to boot into windows all the way, then you can boot into safe mode to work on the problem. <span style="font-weight: bold;">Safe Mode</span> will basically only load the necessary files needed for Windows to operate. While the computer is booting, keep pressing F8(make sure to do this before the windows screen shows) and you should get a menu. Choose <span>Safe Mode.</span> Once your computer boots into windows you can perform the steps above. <br /><br />-G33k<br /><br />

How to force quit uncooperative programs on a PC.


Have you ever encountered annoyingly slow or freezing programs that will not quit when you try to close a window? There is a simple keystroke you can use to quit the programs:Ctrl+Alt+Del. This enables you to access the Task Manager. Task Manager keeps track of all the computers processes as well as the CPU usage and physical memory and can be used to monitor and quit unnecessary programs that can slow or freeze your computer.You simply hold all three buttons (in sequence) and you will be redirected to a different screen that gives you options. Look for Task Manager. (note: If you have Windows XP, Task Manager will pop up as a window). There are 6 tabs (Applications, Processes, Services, Performance, Networks and Users). We will only cover the Applications tab.Once you are in Task Manager, click on the applications tab, if it is not already showing. You will see the titles of programs you are using, if any, and its status (running or not responding). If a program is not responding simply highlight it, by clicking on it and clicking on the button at the bottom labeled "End Task".This should force quit the program(s).

Slow to open


Hi,
Is this slow when start up the computer or slow when you open an application?
If slow when start up the computer, the reason is your computer has too much start up programs and services. All these software, services is required to open as start up of the computer, that reduce speed of log on/ start up process. You can speed up by try these steps:
1. Start - Run: type: msconfig and hit enter.
2. The System Configuration Window will appear. Click on Selective Startup. Then go to Start up tab, untick the process that you think it not importance for start up such as Acrobat Reader...ect. 3. Then hit apply and restart your computer. You can disable all of start up services.
If slow when you try to open an application, then the reason is your computer busy work with some other higher piority process. If you think that you need this application open quicker, you can go to Task Manger and End the task you don't want it run or the task that took a lot of CPU resources.

Hope this will hellp
Thanks for reading.

I have a samsung galaxy phone and it keeps freezing and is very slow


Try clearing the RAM. Go to 'Applications' then find an app called 'Task Manager' (it is preinstalled). Click the 'RAM manager' menu on top then select 'Level 1' then press 'Clear memory'. if it still lagging, select 'Level 2', then 'Clear memory'. That should do the trick. Cheers.

Slow motion, fuzzy scratchy noise, shutdown problems.


the same thing happened to me
this is not a device error but a OS error
to solve this problem
use system restore to restore the system to a date before this error started occurring
this a totally random error that happens due to a code fault
just restore the system to a date where this problem was not there and you will be fine

This is most likely a problem with the USB port you are plugging it into or a problem with memory - you could just be running too many programs simultaneously which causes everything to lag.

If it is a problem with your USB, try all other USB ports on your computer. If none of your USB ports are working and you have determined that it is not because of other problems like memory, you can get external USB expansion ports, which would plug into other ports on your computer.

To check if you are using too many programs, press ctrl, alt, and delete simultaneously to bring up the task manager. Click on the the Performance tab which will show you the usage of your computer's resources. If CPU usage or Physical Memory are near maximum capacity, you should click the Processes tab to see what programs are running and see if there is anything you do not need which can be shut down.

Another good tip to reduce memory usage is to download the free program Spybot Search & Destroy, which finds and removes harmful spyware, which can endanger your privacy as well as slow down your computer.

I have a compaq presario xp and I bought 18 wheels of steel american long haul pc game and attempted to play it but it keeps freezing my computer during the loading process. I have tried everything that...


Does your computer meet the minimum requirements specified on the side of the game box?

Something else may be causing your computer to go slow.
When the game is running slow start up Task Manager.
You can start this by clicking Ctrl Alt Del then clicking on the task manager button.

You are looking for the bottle neck that is causing your system to run slow.
Is the CPU running at or near 100%
Is the Physical Memory Available Counter down below 10,000kb
Is the Hard Disk light constantly flashing

Let me know if you are seeing one or more of these symptoms and may be able to give you some advice on what you can do about it.
