  1. Hi,
    Thank you for taking the time to read this thread..
    I have a Toshiba Qossmio G50 laptop
    64 bit O.S. Vista Home premium -
    CPU Intel core duo CPU P7350 @2.00 GHz
    Memory 4 .0 GB (RAM)

    Norton 360

    It is running like thick molasses moving downhill.
    I have tried registry cleaners, speed boosters etc. all junk.

    If the laptop sits idle for around 8 minutes it will locked up ... the mouse pointer moves but I can not close any windows or shut the system down.
    All I can do is hit the big off button over and over again. I get like a ghost like background with a blue "O" spinning around and around endlessly.

    I have checked out my power settings thinking there was something wrong there, but everything seems to be the way it should be.

    I had a feeling I should have built my own machine, but i got lazy.

    Do you have any idea of what the problem might be?
    Any information will be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you,
