I have a laptop, a failr old Time model. I'm not in any way whatsoever good with computers, which has compounded all the problems I've had. Basically, it keep crashing and I just don't know why. It seems to have been one thing after another with it, problem after problem. When Windows 98 buggered up on it, a mate came and worked wonders on it and installed XP. He also installed Symantec anti-virus as well. Now I don't know anything about anti-virus 'updates' or any of that malarky, but for a while it was ok. But then things went haywire again. The auto-protect seems to only run when it feels like it, and for a very long time there was a virus it caught that just would not be removed. Now, like I say, it keeps crashing. Every time I start it up, a message comes up saying 'low disk space', then it gives me the option to remove stuff to free space on the C drive, then it says 'You only have so much space left and you need at least 200MB free to run properly', and this is even though I'm not adding or downloading anything. Every time I start up my disk space has gone even lower down (I'm onto 80MB), and there's nothing I can do to stop it!
I think this may lead to the way it crashes. It crashes almost every time I use it. What happens is it goes to a blue screen with various jargon oon that I don't have chance to read before it goes, but it mentions 'kernel error page' and suggests a driver may be at fault.
I would call someone in but I don't want to waste money. Can anybody make head nor tail of any of this
It's an absolute bloody misery.
