Hello. We should begin by eliminating auto launching, third party programs from loading by themselves. But first, does this error occur right when the computer boots up. Are you using the system now?
It mostly happens when I am on facebook. i am using the system I think, I don't know much about this machine.
Ok. Thank you. Please click start, run. Type msconfig and press enter
When the window appears, choose the Startup tab. Then choose "Disable All." Click Ok and then restart the computer.
Austin, where is my answer ?
Have you restarted the computer?
There is no one answer for computer repairs. It is a troubleshooting procedure.
My apologies, I was waiting for your to respond.
How often does the computer freeze with the responding error?
About every couple of minutes. But what do I do about that message I keep getting about starting the computer up in the normal mode? what did sisabling all do? I haven't touched anything as I am afraid. Should I go on facebook and see if it is still freezing?
That message is only saying that we changed the way that some programs startup. There should be a check box there that you can select to prevent that message from appearing the next time windows starts
Please open up your facebook and see if the computer still has the "Not responding" problem.
It is still saying not responding but nowhere near as fast' it runs a lot longer and only stays frozen a short time. Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX need to do anything about the startup message apart form checking the box ?
Just checking the box and choosing Ok should be fine. Lets run a scan of the hard drive to ensure that the disk and file system are in good shape. The scan takes about an hour and the computer cannot be used during this scan. Would you prefer doing this scan later, if you need to use the computer now?
No, I might as well get it over with. This machine makes me a nervous wreck, what do I need to do?
Ok. Please click start, Computer. Right click Local Disk C and choose properties.
Is there anything else I need to do ? Do you have any idea why it is still saying "Not Responding" ?
I didn't get a helpfull answer to my first question.
Optional Information: Computer OS: Windows XP Browser: AOL Already Tried: Austin Atkins told me I need a full scan, but I don't know if he is doing one, or if I do it myself, can you help ?
