I bought a RegPro software and driver detective which they did help a lot but the problem is not completely gone


Slow Windows Machine! Sounds like not enough resources such as RAM and CPU. Check Performance in Task-Manager (CTRL-ALT-DELETE). High CPU levels causes hang ups like freezing. Try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig. In Startup tab, uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running. This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when only you initiate. Consider increasing RAM. Uninstall any extras like those pushy toolbars, and add-ons.

Fix for unresponsive scripts in Mozilla Firefox causing it to hang


If you have been having problems with your browser hanging due to a script seen a similar screen to this and pulling you hair out then try this fix before you safe in safemode and diagnose each potential add-on that might be causing the unresponsive script.

I also recommend using either Sysinternals Process Explorer or Windows Task Manager to see if there is another process hogging the CPU during this time, this might be all that the problem is an not with Firefox at all type about:config in the browser then try these values the default value is 20 seconds I recommend a minute for both the chrome and normal script_run_times, if it is set to 0 this means it will wait forever, try to avoid this setting.

Simply right click and modify it will say user set when changed to 1 minute (60secs) i this case.

Program not responding


Have you considered doing a complete recovery of your operational system, I'am suggesting this because of the fact you have to many program conflicts due to device drivers that are not working properly.

Change the Amount of Time Before Programs Time Out



When an application hangs and no longer responds, XP displays a dialog box that prompts you to kill the application or wait a while longer. By default, the dialog box appears after the application hasn't responded for five seconds.
This can cause problems. For example, if a program is doing heavy-duty calculations in the background, it won't respond until the calculation is done, so the operating system will report that the application is hung, even though it isn't. You can use a Registry hack to increase or decrease the amount of time it takes before XP reports that the program has hung.
Run the Registry Editor and go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop. Select the HungAppTimeout entry and edit it to input a new value, in milliseconds. The default is 5000. Exit the Registry. You may need to reboot for the new setting to take effect. Try increasing the number in increments of 1,000 until you find a number that works.

Since I upgraded to Windows 7 I expierience that my computer hangs regulary


This can be related to few different things. One main thing to check is how much memory does you computer have since windows 7 requires at least 1GB to run smooth. Another would be incompatible driver or hardware. when you installed the OS did you run compatibility checker and hardware checker to see does your computer support installation of windows 7. Also anti-virus software might do it since windows 7 takes a lot of memory and add anti-virus to that and you get a very slow or unresponsive computer. Try to disable your anti-virus and see what happens. Also try to load windows to safe mode by restarting and constantly pressing F8 key and choosing safe mode and let it run this way. If it does not hang then it would be software or driver issue. Try removing everything from add remove programs that was put on other than windows and stuff that loads with OS and see does this resolve it. Main thing is that you have enough memory and also that your processor can handle the Windows 7. Try this and see what happens. If you run in any problems message me.

Format the Operating system and start fresh

Some useless programs or virus's may be slowing down your system
a reset will enable you to regain full speed of your pc again.
And don't forget even with loads of memory the CPU may be lacking to run most of today's programs all at once.
