Hi
You may have one of the following problems:

1) It's probable that you have malware on your windows. Use Malwarebytes anti malware to scan your pc.
If you have any antivirus software update it and scan your computer before using Malwarebytes.
Note: Installing 2 antivirus simultaneously is dangerous and may lead to bootup problems.

2) Scan your PC for windows and registry problems.
You can use Tuneup utilities, PC OnPoint, CCleaner, . . .
Use Disk cleanup of your windows too.

3) You may have a fragmented hard disk. Defragment your drives by using either windows defragment tool or a 3rd-party tool.
Windows defragment is weak. I recommend Raxco Perfectdisk to defragment your hard.

4) You may have driver conflicts. Raxco has another utility to check this one. you can download it.
You can download and use Drivermax to update your drivers.

Good luck

Freezes are typical of either a memory leak or a failing hard drive. As kpax77 mentions, do a defrag. If that does not help, download UBCD: http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/ and run a test on both your hard drive and your ram.

Am experiencing various computer problems and I am not able to respond to the solution suggestions in the conventional way. I have gained access to the question via the "profile" feature. Please bear with me and I will respond with my progress or lack there of shortly. I phoned exp.exc and the party that assisted me said i might have an e-mai probleml. When I tried to respond to the e-mail message sent to me my exp/exc  (which message told me there had been no response for 3 days) the message included the words "image hidden" and every time I clicked on the "image hidden" portion it gave me a new blank web page.I then gave up. I ended up with 5 blank pages and then gained access via the "profile" feature.

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

In error I gave 500 points to one respondent. I wanted to split the points. What do I do now?

If you want to split the points read this:

Each comment box has a button that says Accept Multiple Solutions. Click that, and you will see a page that allows you to assign points to any of the comments in the thread. There is a grade box at the bottom of the page.

Note: The total of the point splits must equal the original amount you assigned to the question, and no comment can receive fewer than 20 points. The Comment that was posted first is the Accepted Solution, and the rest of the comments are Assisted Solutions.
