Hello and welcome to justanswer, My name is ***** ***** i will be assisting you today,

I'm sorry about the issue, Please follow the steps below to unfreeze/speed up/clean your computer.

1. First Let's end some of the processes, as that can cause the computer to be slow.

Please click Start, then Run. In the run box, please type msconfig and press enter.
Please click on the Startup tab(Make sure it is the Startup Tab)
Please click Disable All
Click Apply, then OK.

You should be prompted to restart your computer, please do so.

2. Next, you want to run Malwarebytes, a free malware/virus scanner. Please click https://www.malwarebytes.org/mwb-download Click Download Now in green on the left. Once you install it, Please Update and then run a Quick Scan and Delete any Malware/Viruses. It should take 25-55 minutes to complete.

3. Once that is complete, please download Ccleaner, as this will clean temp and cache files from your computer.

Click http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner

Once you run that and delete everything, please let me know if your computer is running faster.

If you have any questions, please reply and I will assist you.

Thank you

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
