  1. Thanks to you guys you got my computer working right, but its now started to play up again.
    it will quite often freeze when I change a page I will use F5 to get back on track.
    other times it becomes extremly slow and will time out.

    I run a scan every day nothing comes up all clean.
    when I have trouble with IE and it tells me that it cannot open windows Im not able to use the dieonistic button.
    My computor is getting old running XP pro. 4 gig ram , duel core.

    Thanks
    Ed.

    It may make noises. Or do as it is now freezing windows up. Then one day when you go to boot up the computer. You will get a message telling you you need to install your disk.

    Hard drive is definitely failing...two options:

    1. Run the check disk tool and/or try defragmenting the hard disk.
    2. Download CCleaner and let it diagnose and troubleshoot the system and remove all gabbage files.

    Failing those, replace the hard drive.
