Hi as anyone any ideas why, I have my PC formatted and windows 7 installed and it keep freezing up and takes 3-4 minutes to start up and shut down and sometime have to crash it to shut down.

I tried windows update and that done somethings but still extremely slow.

Anyone got any ideas or websites they use to scan complete pc and operating system for errors?

  1. bad memory - run a memory test

  2. corrupted hard drive - run a scan of you drive

  3. virus or malware - what antivirus have you got installed? run it and look for virus and malware.

Have you use windows 7 legitimate key ? Is it use only windows defender with update ? Do you use another antivirus ?
