Started about 2 wks ago.
First - Anything that you can remember from about the time that the problem started ? ?
Can you recall if any programs were installed or deleted at that time ? ?
Do you also have any internet problems ? ?
Just an extra check, go to Control Panel and click on Java (coffee cup), under the General Tab click on About -
The top line should read Version 6 Update 24 -
Thank You -

Just to add something on this, you may have a fluctuating power issue.
Download Speedfan (The download link is to the right), and install it. Once it's installed, run the program and post here the information it shows.
The information I want you to post is the stuff that is circled in the example picture I have attached.
To make sure we are getting all the correct information it would help us if you were to attach a screenshot like the one below of your Speedfan results.
To do a screenshot please have click on your Print Screen on your keyboard.
- It is normally the key above your number pad between the F12 key and the Scroll Lock key
- Now go to Start and then to All Programs
- Scroll to Accessories and then click on Paint
- In the Empty White Area click and hold the CTRL key and then click the V
- Go to the File option at the top and click on Save as
- Save as file type JPEG and save it to your Desktop
- Attach it to your next reply

However what I do know is that you have Advanced System Care installed.
I have worked with you before and I apologise if it was not you, but I thought I mentioned this before.
You do not want this program on your computer
It involves a registry cleaner and these can cause all sorts of problems.
Additionally see this as I suspect it is Advanced system care from I/O bit
For general info on why registry cleaner are unwanted see the My Link on my signature notes and that includes the use of the registry aspect of CCleaner.
have added a couple of new programs, etc lately
ALSO are the time and date correct in windows as VBat shows 0 volts. Check your time and date in BIOS.
It appears your CMOS battery is flat.

Yes, you advised me to delete the Iobit Security 360, which I did, but didn't mention the same for Advanced system care. I have used ASC for years and never had a computer problem ever. When my computer gets slow, I use some parts of it and BAM!, Instantly my computer is back to fast speed again for mos. I have read alot about the Iobit swiping programs, no good, etc. and don't think they are gods of computer world, but don't know of any other program/process that instantly restores my speed. Anyone with a better idea I would be glad to hear it!
Thanks for the reply,

There are other programs that will do the same thing without the possibility of messing with the registry. I myself use to use ASC years ago but now use other programs so that I can ensure my registry is excluded from any possible tampering.

Would like to know of the other programs, I would switch, but ASC really not a big issue for me, since rarely have problems and I spend a lot of time on internet, since dial-up was first available, but better is prefered!
