Look at the manufacturer’s site for the suitable drivers for your Operating System
If you are unable to find them, please post the make and model here before you download anything
Please set a system restore point before you install anything.

download everest - http://www.majorgeek...wnload4181.html it will provide you with info on your system specs.

cheers...xxx1

Yep, I see you have a Dell, go to Dell website and enter in your service tag and check for updated drivers.

what kind of antivirus program do you have

it maybe a program to run or scan at boot-up

or you may have several programs running or looking for updates at boot-up just something to consider

if its not your video drivers that is

You might try updating your other drivers also, other than that, after reading all you have already tried, I am out of ideas.

hi again, there is another thing to think about in that maybe some month ago you did have as many programs that you do now and you many need all the programs you have, so if you cannot streamline down your system because of your needs, you can always add or upgrade your ram thus making the computer faster, ram does not cost too much.

Oh, and I certainly like the Cleanup rushin1nd gave you.

Buster, if you really want help on this matter, I suggest visiting this link here at GeeksToGo: http://www.geekstogo...o_Here-f37.html. The chances are you have Malware, which is malicious software. Such as Viruses, Trojans, Spyware, Adware, etc. You will also want to Defragmate, use the Disk Cleanup tool, delete unwanted history, unwanted startup items, etc. The Malware Removal section can better help you with this. *If none of this helps, then look to the direction of updating hardware, etc.

Ok well, while I do suggest doing the Malware Removal once again. I am wondering, what are your system specifications?
