Question about Gateway GT4022 PC Desktop
Anytime I click on a program like iTunes, AIM, even Control Panel and Systems Recovery my computer either refuses to open up the program or loads it and eventually pops out the window "end the process" because it takes to long to load.
Also my office word crashes after a while and so does Firefox when I play video that is not adobe
I scanned for viruses a week ago with none inside my computer
And I would scan again but that doesn't open either
gateway support says it will cost me $30 to ask for advice on this matter
I'm afraid I would be wasting money on something that may be something of a small bug
I have already tried rebooting and unplugging
I am in dire need of rescue
help me Fixya

I just googled the computer number you gave and I was curious if you could let me know. Regardless of if it takes ddr or ddr2 memory I would like to know because I could offer a suggestion of how to upgrade your memory to make your computer blazing fast for about what it would have cost you to pay for gateway support.
Basically I think that your computer is low on memory. You should also check the windows virtual memory.
I am going to suggest these tips which are free and please follow.
Google search and download these two free programs.
Ccleaner and Tunexp.
Ok, when you install ccleaner do a system scan and it will get rid of all of your junk lurking around in your computer. Tune xp is a very wonderful easy to use program that will speed up your hard drive, a great disk defrag which you should do after you use ccleaner. There is a great setting that you clear pagefile memory on shutdown which will also speed up your computer. Use every tweak you can find on there.
Be careful if you clean the registry with ccleaner because you allways need to back up your registry. I only recommend this for experienced users who know what to do if they mess something up.
Those are some great tweaks that I am sure will help you out with your problem, start there and if it is still slow as hell, you may want to delete all programs you dont need defrag and maybe reinstall some programs that you would want to run better.
I hope this helps. I used to have a gatway computer and the best part about it was that I learned to hate it so much that I ended up building my own computers from scratch...which is a lot funner and saves a lot of money. I can help you with that if you want down the road.
