Hello i am new here but i thought u guys would help me with my problem. Here is the thing:


When i turn on my computer everything works fine but as soon as i start a programm which is usually msn or a game(counter strike) my computer is stuck for about 7-10 seconds every 5 minutes or so. Also its being stuck while i am browsing on the internet and sometimes whithout even using any programme. I have been having this problem for quite a while now but it would stuck only once but in the last 3-4 days its more intense. Could you possibly help me on that matter? Thanks for your time.

Please download ATF Cleaner by Atribune.
Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
Under Main choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.
If you use Firefox browserClick Firefox at the top and choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.
NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
If you use Opera browserClick Opera at the top and choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.
NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program.
For Technical Support, double-click the e-mail address located at the bottom of each menu.


If this does not work then:

Go to:
Start and then My Computer
Right Click On "C" drive and then click on Properties
Click on Tools tab at the top
In the Error Checking field click Check Now


When that is done

Download Auslogics Defrag from the link in my signature below. Auslogics Defrag in my opinion is better because:

It does a more comprehensive job at Defragging
It will actually show you what it is doing
At the end of working it will show you how much speed you picked up
You can view a online log of the files that Auslogics defragged



Reboot and let me know how system is running now

Open Autoruns, click on "Logon" tab, and UN-check:
- iTunesHelper
- Iso Data fast cast
- Perfect optimizer
- DriverCure
- Memo 64
- Uniblue RegistryBooster 2009

When done restart computer and then:


Download Temp File Cleaner (TFC)
Double click on TFC.exe to run the program.
Click on Start button to begin cleaning process.
TFC will close all running programs, and it may ask you to restart computer.

Thanks to Broni for the Instructions

After you have finished the above then please rerun Auslogics Defrag
