I HAVE A ADVENT LAPTOP, IT IS RUNNING SO SLOW I JUST CANT USE IT. IT ALSO KEEPS FREEZING ON ME AND I CAN NEVER COMPLETE ANYTHING.

I HAVE REBOOTED THE LAPTOP AND NOTHING HAS CHANGED.

DOES ANYBODY HAVE ANY IDEAS, AS TO WHAT I NEED TO DO. IT'S DRIVING ME CRAZY!!!

download update and run adaware/spy-bot/spyware blaster for the downloads section of this site which should start you on your way then click here and search for stinger d/load from site at top of list (networks) to a floppy and run it if using xp or me disable system restore first but dont forget to re enable after, also chec task manager and see what processes are running.

Is this a Win98 system if so try this Go to Start\Run and type MSCONFIG press ok go to startup tab and remove ticks in boxes, exept Anti-Virus, Firewall, system tray, then reboot and see how it goes if you need any you have removed, just go back in and restore the tick
