The computer is a Dell Inspiron 531s, AMD 64 dual core processor 4000+ 2.1Ghz,
Ram is 1Gb, 32 bit operating system. Running Windows Vista home with service pack 2. I have ran Malwarebtes and comes up clean, ran ATF cleaner. Have free version of Avast installed. The computer freezes up allot when using the internet which seems to lead to it freezing upon doing anything. IF you hit Ctr lat delete it will take some time but will pop up and sometimes allows you to move around other times nothing. IT is a big pain. Please help me with this issue.
