Something is eating away at your resources. Make sure you have a legal copy of Windows XP or Vista installed and all updates are complete.
Right-Click on a blank area of your taskbar…(grey or blue bar…bottom of screen) and select Task Manager. Click on the Applications Tab..from there you will see the programs that are running. End Task to any program you don’t want running. Next click the Processes Tab to “see” what is using your resources. Scroll down the list noting the programs running the highest percentage.
With the information you learned above…go to Start…Run….type in MSCONFIG go to the “Start-up Tab” and the “Services Tab”…uncheck the any program you noted using up your resources …then select apply…system will want to reboot…reboot….windows will open saying you made changes to the startup menu…checkmark the bottom left..where it says don’t show again…your done.
If you have Vista type MSCONFIG into the “search window” and follow the same instructions as above..
The programs will still work on your computer..it just won’t embed itself in your start-up menu.
If you are still experiencing problems I would these things..
Reset Internet Explorer…Tools…Internet Options…Advanced Tab…Reset. You will have to download these two programs to You will have to download these programs again so you can see java and video again.
Delete bitdefender and download this free antivirus program that is currently number one in the world.
Click the Download Now button for AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 8.5.406
And run your Advance Windows Care daily and you should be ok.
Make sure all Microsofts Updates are complete.
