    The computers get slow to

    start and to shut down or hibernate. When shutting down the screen changes from colour to B&W .

    I have NOD 32 Running to get the viruses.

    I did try Uniblue Registry Booster 2.

    But it didn't give an improvement despite Reporting that it fixed hundreds of faults.

    Problem on Fujitsu Siemens Scale P and Stylistic and lo lessen extent on an olden Dell that is usually only used for backup and a plotter driver.

    I have had this or similar problems in the past and it was only solved by buying a new machine. I have asked many, times for advice and paid for advice without getting a solution.

This is a very common problem. It happens more to those that frequently install and delete programs. Many fragments are left over that slow the computer and cause various problems including those you mention. I agree with a previous answer that re-installing windows helps, but even better is to format the hard disc after saving files and reinstall all programs. Easier said than done!

I think the only way to fix it is to reinstall Windows.

It sounds like you have a problem with your video card & it may need to be replaced but try updating the drivers before you do anyhing else. You could even try a clean install of your operating system as this will be chaper than buying a new video card. Sometimes things just stop working & I'm afraid the most likely thing is that your video card has died.
