There are many things that might cause your PC to run slowly. It could be a fragmented disk; fragmented registry; a virus, Trojan, or spy ware; high CPU and/or utilization due to too many programs running; high disk I/O; or something else.

To check your CPU and memory utilization, run Task Manager. You can start Task Manager by pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL and then clicking on the Task Manager Button. In Task manager, click on the Performance tab and check CPU Usage and PF Usage. PF Usage is an indicator of memory usage. If one or both of these is high, click on the Processes tab, and sort the columns by CPU or Memory to see what processes are consuming the resource. If you are not sure what the process "Image name" is for, Google the name and you should find what the process is for.

If your CPU and memory usage are reasonable, then you may have a different issue. Even if you running anti-virus software, it may be beneficial to scan your PC with another scanner to check for viruses. No anti-virus software is 100% perfect at catching everything. Here are a few good free online virus scanners that you can run to check your PC:

An excellent free utility for overall system maintenance is Advanced System Care Free ( http://download.cnet.com/advanced-systemcare-free/3000-2086_4-10407614 .html ). I use this utility on a regular basis.

You should always run anti-virus software. There are several very good, free, anti-virus products available. One good source to read editor and user reviews, and safely download anti-virus software, is http://download.cnet.com -- search for free antivirus software. In addition to the reviews, you can see how many people are downloading the software, which is another good indicator of how popular it is.

I have used AVG Free ( http://download.cnet.com/avg-anti-virus-free/3000-2239_4-10320142.html ) , and Avast Free ( http://download.cnet.com/avast-free-antivirus/3000-2239_4-10019223.htm l ). Both are very good, and completely free. At present I am using Avast on all of my home computers.

I have heard good things about Avira AntiVir Free ( http://download.cnet.com/Avira-AntiVir-Personal-Free-Antivirus/3000-22 39_4-10322935.html ), and it has good ratings, but I have not personally tried it.

In addition to Avast or one of the other free anti-virus software packages, I also run Ad-Aware ( http://download.cnet.com/ad-aware-free-internet/3000-8022_4-10045910.h tml ). Ad-Aware is a free anti-malware, anti-spyware package.

Good luck!

MY PC (ACER) RESTART WHILE I AM IN BUSY TIME WHAT IS THE PROBLEM SIR


There are many things that might cause your PC to run slowly or restart at time and then. It could be a fragmented disk; fragmented registry; a virus, Trojan, or spy ware; high CPU and/or utilization due to too many programs running; high disk I/O; or something else.

Wow. I don't know where to begin...

128 Mb of ram is not enough to run any modern operating system. Which one are you running anyway? You should have 256Mb as an ABSOLUTE MINIMUM, preferably 512Mb or more.

You should only have 1 ANTIVIRUS program on your computer. Even if you uninstall an old one it will leave stuff in your registry that will almost certainly mess with the new one.

Unless you are in love with the system as is, I recommend saving all your important documents on a flash drive, add some RAM to your system and then do a fresh install of your operating system.

After the fresh install and your initial updates (microsoft I assume), download the following programs (all available free from CNET.COM)

AVG FREE 2011 antivirus (not the trial version)
CCLEANER registry cleaner
MALWAREBYTES' antimalware
ZONE ALARM FREE firewall

Anyway, good luck and please post back with your progress if you need more help.

My computer freezes, the only thing I ca do with


If it is the video going on when it freezes, then you can try the following link.
http://support.microsoft.com/gp/video_freezes_or_crashes

Multiple antivirus softwares may cause problems because they may not cooperate well. A lot of wrong settings may cause performance issue too. You can check for those with the following link.
http://support.microsoft.com/gp/slow_windows_performance

Some corrupted entries in your registry may affect the performance.
You can scan for virus and tune up your PC by using the following link.
http://onecare.live.com/site/en-us/default.htm?s_cid=sah

Otherwise can you observe what applications are running when it crashes. That application may be causing some resource bottleneck of your system. If it is a big graphic transaction program then your graphic card may need an update. You may remove or unload that application and see how it'd go if you remember that application. Sometimes a program connecting to an Internet server for update all the time will take all your resources while running for a while. To see what is running, you can open task manager by pressing Ctrl+Del+Alt at the same time. To see what is loaded when your computer starts, you can use the msconfig command (by typing it in the command bar opened by clicking Start->Run) and check the startup programs and services. If you want to see what is running during the crash, then you will need to setup the dump file to be written. Details about that can be found with the following link.
