For some unknown reason my PC has variable speed. Earlier today pages were 'freezing' and 'hanging' and word processing was virtually impossible. Now it is back to normal speed and functioning properly.
peter99co, what made you zoom in on Nero, I have very similar symptoms to skinn, I have cut down programs not immediately needed in the tray, nothing appears in task manager except ones I am using. I have Nero installed but don't use it, I have changed to other burners, perhaps I should uninstall Nero completely.?
Sometimes my PC is very fast and then goes to what I can only describe as DOZE mode, still functions but takes ten times longer, rebooting resets it but I don't want to do that many times in a day.
Just had a little look at this one. Does the PC start becoming faster just when its starting to become cooler in the house? If this is the case then it just maybe that your PC is overheating during the day. Download speedfan and have a look at the temperatures in the evening compared to the day.
The CPU seems to be burdened most of the time with Firefox or whatever other application is in use. It's an AMD Sempron 3000+ Processor . The PC is five years old - would it be worth upgrading the CPU?
