    It's only two months old and I run a clean-up and virus scan about every 3-5 days. I'm wondering if it's Vista.

Okay, well that could mean a lot of things. First, of all how old is this laptop?..When was the last time you ran a disk cleanup?..Well the reason I asked you how old your laptop was, is because if your laptop is super old then, that's the reason why it is always freezing up. And I asked how long ago it was wen you ran a disk clean up, because in a lot of cases, when people's computers or laptops freeze up, is because they dont run disk clean ups often..and just let unnceccesary files continue to pile up on the computer. So if your computer is old and you never run disk clean ups this is why your laptop keeps freezing up. For example: an older person is walking along..and you give them a sack of potatoes to carry..ok obviously their going to walk slower..now every 5 minutes you give them another sack of potatoes. Wouldnt you think that the old person is going to have to stop every now and then and catch their breathe?. Ok, think of a computer like that. Well those are the two main things that came to my mind. Like I said, it could be a number of reasons your laptop is doing this. Hope this helps! :]

My netbook runs slow and freezes


There are many reasons for slowness and freezing. Computer specs (ram, processor speed, connection speed)) could be not enough for today's internet.

Internet cache, temporary internet files, temporary files should be cleared.

Try defragmenting the hard drive.

And try downloading a program like CCleaner from Piriform.

I have a Dell Dimension 2400 series that is very slow & freezes.


It sounds like you might have spyware on you computer. The two iexplore files might be spyware. I am not sure about the teatime.exe file but there is a file called teatimer.exe which is associated with the SpyBot software. I usually recommend Webroot Spysweeper software to remove and keep the spyware off of computers.
If you have software such as SpyBot I would disconnect the computer from the internet (after you update the software to the most current definitions) and boot the computer to safe mode. Log in as an administrator and run your software. This should pick up spyware before it has a chance to load.

Runs slow sticks


The link I've give you below is linked to CCleaner which is a registry cleaner for your computer which basically removes un-needed data e.g. Internet History, Internet cache, computer logs and it also fixes shortcuts or any files which are not working correctly.

I use this software on my computer every time I shut down and it has made my computer work much faster.

Here's the link: http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download you can download free if you select the 'alternative download'.

Yahoo makes my internet run slow and freeze


It is more likely you need to clean up your computer a bit. Try this START->PROGRAMS->ACCESSORIES->SYSTEM TOOLS->DISC CLEANUP select this and a box opens, place a check mark in every box, you need none of this as it is duplication of duplications, and run it. Say yes when it says Are you sure...
Then when that's done (should take a while if you haven't done it for a long time or never)
Follow the same path as to where the disc cleanup is only this time select ->Disk Defragmenter and click on Defragment and let that run. This process should be done weekly and it won't take long at all the next time.
Now no matter what this will help you machine to be faster. The freeze you mentioned does bother me some, I would think the video and/or memory card could come to the center of attention. If so write back and we'll pursue that then.

Green Screen on my laptop......... Just Blank and SLow and Frozen


I guess your operating system has been damaged by viruses. you need to completely format the hard disc and install new operating system and other softwares. Install McAfee 5.7i antivirus software to protect your system from viruses. To get protection from spywares you can also use site advisor softwares.

Acer laptop won't boot up


Try booting the laptop with the battery removed while the laptop is plugged into the wall outlet. Acer has a weird problem sometimes with the battery preventing it from booting. Sometimes it will get as far as logging into windows and then act crazy, slow down, and freeze.

Good luck!

Video and Audio Freeze


Sounds like a slow internet connection. Try pausing the video until it has buffered at least halfway and then play again.

Hope this helps,
