Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My PC computer

My computer keeps freezing up on me. When I turn it on it seems fine but when I click onto anything else for example microsoft word or even "My Computer". It freezes. I can't even turn it off properly. I know its not the right thing for me to do but I have to turn off my computer by just cutting the power source from it. I can't do anything with it. It might have a virus. I'm not sure but I don't want to lose anything on there like my resume and picture. As I'm typing this I'm using my friends laptop. Please help and thank you for your time.

freezing cause by sever virus infection and Hard drive error, if virus infection, virus can be eliminated but the system become slower, and if the hard drive error (bad sector) sometime can be resolve but most of that error HDD put to the bin.

anyway, if this cause by virus infection then, boot your computer in "safe mode with network " option by pressing "F8" at first start and then scan your computer for viruses, you can use online scanning here:

if same issue occur, then better backup your files or save your picture in flash dive or any removable drive. and reformat and reinstall the windows operating system.

pls do not rate me if my solution not solve the issue and you need more further information. but if is invaluable solution rate me fixya.

I have an HP Pavilion Entertainment PC. The wireless connection was just fine, but is not working at all. I assume the wireless switch is to be pushed to the right(it does not work regardless of position)...

In XP go into my computer from the start menu... Click onto view system information.... Click onto the hardware tab and then click onto device manager. Once there you should see your wireless connection under network adapters.... expand it and you will see your wireless card. Just right click on it and choose whatever you want to do.

Make sure that your computer is malware/spyware and/or virus-free! =)

Also run ... msconfig (system configuration utility) then got to system tab > check hide all Microsoft Services > disable all

Go to Startup tab > click on disable all

Restart computer

If issue was solved, problem is software related (could be a program /virus /malware).

If the same issue occurs, run diagnostics since more likely than not , this could be a hardware issue. (You might want to send the pc to a service center)

Main reason i computer being occupied by active applications those are running in background (discreetly). You can reduce the quantity of startup items by using MSCONFIG utility. Also you can change the performance settings. (You can choose best performance instead of best appearence). Some features of the operating system can be stopped to increase the performance. For example turning of system restore option sometimes increases the performance 10-15%. Also performing periodical (weekly recommended) instant maintenance by using disk clean up tool. I have given some basic options if you need further details please post your questions.

Good Luck
