My PC always hang!


A lot of things can do this.
  1. Make sure you are running only one anti-virus program and one spy-ware solution and that it is up to date. More is not better, the similar products will compete and give false positives on each other.
  2. Make sure that there are no virus or spy-ware running on the machine. If you do not have a product to check I recommend AVG and Spy-bot because they are both free and are reliable.
  3. Run disk checks on your C: drive, scan it, and de-fragment. You can do it by right clicking the drive and selecting properties. It will be on the TOOLS tab
  4. Make sure that you have enough drive space. You must have at least 200MB free on the primary drive or Windows starts to lag badly.
  5. Make sure that you have enough RAM. Right click My computer and select properties. Many computers come with only 512MB or less of memory. You need at least 1GB with all the new patches that Microsoft has put out.
  6. Do not run an excessively large number of USB devices without using a powered HUB and make sure that the power supply in the PC has enough power to run all the devices attached to it. Most OEM PC's come with a 250w power supply, if you have added anything after market like Video or sound upgrades, you may need to take the power supply to 350-400w.
  7. Don't run programs that for which you don't meet the system requirements. If your running something like Mass Effect to on a Celeron it is going to restart and hang.

I was deleting files on my computer, trying to make extra space, and I accidentally deleted the sound.


Go to the manufacturers web site, find your model and the drivers should be right there.

After you are whole again, please go to PCPITSTOP.com and have them do a free scan of your computer. They will give you a comprehensive report with some recommended fixes. Some fixes are $ and some are free.

Please get CCleaner (google it) and let this free program do your house keeping duties. Use the first two routines on the top left.

Please ber Comodo Reg Cleaner, another wonderful free to use cleaner that will work on your registry.

Please get Spy Bot, search and destroy at PC world - another free utility. Dont be misled, get the free one called Spy Bot - search and destroy.

I use these at least monthly and usually weekly to keep my computer in good shape.

Following yor cleanup, please defrag your drive using either windows defrag or Defraggler, a free utility from the same folks that make CClean.

I hope this helps you

Got a malware, now computer is screwed up bad.


Spyware 2009 is a malaware itself.

Try removing it with Spy Bot, if it does not work you may have to reinstall the system after backing up your data, that is the only efficient way when the computer is really infected.

To download spy bot see:

AVG slowing computer


Spybot is an anti-spyware program, which shouldn't affect the anti-virus at all. The thing is, though, you can have as many anti-spyware programs as you want, but only one virus scanner. Otherwise, things get messed up. But As long as there are no Norton, McAfee, CA Antivirus, Kaspersky, or things like that on the computer, you should be fine. Also, check your scanning schedule to see if maybe it is running a virus scan every time you boot to Windows. That would cause things to slow down tremendously. And you can go to Start > All Programs > Startup and delete things you don't need running when you start Windows. If you want, you can delete everything in that menu without any real negative effect. Those things can be started manually if you need them to.
