my system is in such a mess, but i cant be without(run a small business). it freezes all the time, on everything. i have broadband connection and after about an hour on the pc it slows down so much i have to restart. i can no longer use search for files as it say (0) computer. i am frightened of reformatting and reinstalling everything for fear of loosing something and not being able to reconnect to broadband (someone came out and did it)as i am not sure if it will automatically detect. i've lost the will to live! Help
Also, is the mouse optical or a 'ball' one? If it is the latter, it may be that it needs cleaning (ball and rollers).. i needed to clean my mouse in my old office every couple of weeks and build-up of mank causes the pointer to move erratically.
Alternatively, it could be because your computer is just so full of old files and stuff that it's slowing down. Tidying up and backing up the way to go!!
