Hi everyone:

This is my second ever forum I've ever joined--the other is a chicken forum which may in fact be more my speed...I'm just at my wits end and ready to toss the computer to the street and follow the poor unsuspecting fool home to see how frustration rules their lives...I bought an acer for my daughter last christmas, and within a day, she filled it with her music and movies, and then proceeded to complain how slow the computer was when she tried to use msn...I ended up getting the darn thing back, took off all her junk, and it still runs like (forgive the cliche) like molasses in january...I've tried everything-removed programs, installed nortons 360 to clean what I suspected was there (turns out nothing) and still I'm typing on a snail..once explorer opens, pages load quickly and I can go forward and back, but every program I try to open seems to allow nap time between clicking on it and opening...alot of freezing going on too..when I opened task manager (to shut down the darn frozen pages, I find 86task manager windows open)...it's a lovely shade of green across the bottom of the bar, but I'm beginning to think I've found the problem, but dont know how to solve it..does anyone have any idea what the problem is or how to solve it???HELP, please...

not sure what area I should be posting this in, so if I've screwed up, please advise and sorry in advance.

well... open one of the task manager windows and end all the taskmgr.exe processes you see... (if you accidentally close the one you are using open one of the others... it may be teadious... but it should work... btw, dont hit ctrl+alt+delete so many times :) )


PS this should have gone in the OS part of the forum... you posted in the hardware part...

Hi there:
Thanks for your input, and I apologize for posting in the wrong area...I'm not terribly computer savy and wasn't sure where to post since I don't know what's causing the problem..I only click on task manager once, but in the list of running programs, there is a list of up to 86 task manager windows open, when I've only opened it once...I'm pretty certain this is why the computer is running so slowly, but I don't know why it's doing that or how to make it stop.
