:D I'm sorry to hear about your issue but I will try to assist you in resolving your problem. First of all I need to compile some information before recommending any resolution.
Laptop or desktop?
Name brand system or custom built?
If name brand what make and model is it?
If custom built what is the make and model of the motherboard?
Now the information I also need can be given by running the following programs and posting the requested logs.


Download Autoruns from the link in my signature below:

1: Extract the Autoruns Zip file contents to a folder.
2: Double-click the "Autoruns.exe".
3: Click on the "Everything" tab
4: Remove any entries that mention "File Not Found" by right-clicking the entry and select Delete.
5: Go to File then to Export As or Save in some versions.
6: Save AutoRuns.txt file to known location like your Desktop.
7: Attach to your next reply.









Download and install Free Everest Home Edition
Open it.
1: In left pane expand Computer folder.
2: Click once on Summary
3: In upper menu, go Report
4: And then to Quick Report-Summary
5: Save it in text file, and paste it in your next post.
Click the + by computer, click on Sensor. Get a screenshot and post it so I can check your temps and voltages...


DO NOT INCLUDE ANYTHING UNDER THE LINE THAT SAYS "DEBUG- PCI"

it looked like it solved the issue but then when i restart i click on my computer again, it hangs for a good few mins and then everything shows up ( it does say not responding if i try clicking anywhere on the screen)

but after the first time it starts working fine until i close the window and try open again ( it hangs again for a few mins)

Open Autoruns, click on "Logon" tab, and UN-check:


+ " I g f x T r a y "
+ " S u n J a v a U p d a t e S c h e d "


When done restart computer and then:



Download TFC by OldTimer to your desktop
  • Please double-click TFC.exe to run it. (Note: If you are running on Vista, right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator).
  • It will close all programs when run, so make sure you have saved all your work before you begin.
  • Click the Start button to begin the process. Depending on how often you clean temp files, execution time should be anywhere from a few seconds to a minute or two. Let it run uninterrupted to completion.
  • Once it's finished it should reboot your machine. If it does not, please manually reboot the machine yourself to ensure a complete clean.


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

Two gigs of memory should be plenty for doing everyday data opening and closing or internet surfing.
Can you explain where exactly you are getting the hanging up and is the system actually freezing or just slowing down?
Try this below and let me know if you see a significant speed up and if you find the culprit of the slowdown then.
Lets see what you have in your startup

Please click on
Start and then to Run
Type in msconfig and press Enter
Now click on Startups
Then uncheck everything and restart.
IMPORTANT! In case of laptop, make sure, you do NOT disable any keyboard, or touchpad entries.
If system boots correctly and is running smoothly and faster then we have a startup problem
Try going back into msconfig and check one item and reboot
Keep doing that till you have found the problem or all are finally checked.
Post back with the results

When Windows Desktop appears, you will have a "nag screen" stating that your operating system is running in Diagnostic Mode, etc. etc. We know that since you used MSCONFIG to disable several of your Startups.
You can place a checkmark/tick into the little box at the left of the "nag screen" which says: "Never show this to me again." Then press OK.
