With the limited information you have, I would ask if you have the original Operating System setup disk (ie-windows xp, or win7, or the OS of your choice. When I buying a second hand computer, I would highly recommend formatting the hard drive, and a fresh install of the entire system. Not only will you start from scratch, and have to undo any problems that the former owner had or caused, but you just never know what may be on a computer. There could be hidden viruses, porn stashes, and only God knows what hidden there.

If you have the setup disk, insert it, restart the computer, and follow the prompts to format the drive and re-install the operating system. If not, try to find one. If you're brave, format the drive and install Linux. It's not too hard to learn, and will probably save you grief in the long run. That last bit is just a personal opinion though.

Let me know how it goes

Free driver driver down loads for Imedia 5070


Win 7 supports this through Media Player, I believe. Otherwise, you'll have to go buy one. If the computer came with the DVD burner, you should have also received the software.

Do I need a Norton-type security for my laptop, or is AVG sufficient ?


Hi,
AVG is more than sufficient for a home computer.
Norton takes quite a lot of system resources and slows computers down dramatically. AVG on the other hand uses 2/3rds less resources than Norton and is just as good.


Reagrds.

Packard bell i media desktop pc freezes before


Then the problem must be a software related one. Something your adding to the system (knowingly or unknowingly) is causing this.

Install your recovery disks and immediately put on Avira Antivirus software.

Then update it from the web. ensure it checks all files on open and close. The point is i think you maybe installing something with a virus in it. better to check your system thoughout.

Avira is the best free one there is. Nothing compares.
