Sher, Lots Of Possibilities...(Part 2)
If everything comes up clean of spyware and viruses, then I recommend that you close some of the unnecessary background programs that may be running on the computer. They can frequently cause conflicts with various drivers etc.
Click on Start-Programs-Start Up. If there are any listings in the Start Up area, you need to delete as many as you can.(Right click the listing and choose "Delete". Please remember that these are just shortcuts to programs and not actual program files, so its safe to delete them. Don't delete any that you really want to load at start up.
Then click on Start-Run, in the typing area put "msconfig" (without the quotes), press Ok. When the System Configuration Utiltiy box opens, click on the Start Up tab. You will see a number of listings with boxes and check marks in them. These are programs that run at start up. You can safely uncheck many of the boxes. Don't uncheck System Tray, Scan Registry, or your Virus Scan startup programs. After youre done, click Apply, then 0K, and the computer will ask you to restart. If you have any questions about which programs to UNCHECK in "msconfig", post back, or check for yourself at this site: http://www.pacs-portal.co.uk/startup_content.php. At this site, wait for the page to load completely, then scroll down to the "The Programs" section and click on the "Full List" link. You should be able to find most programs you have questions about.
In addition, the link below will help you shut down some of the unnecessary start up programs in "Services" and "Msconfig".
Hope this helps, too.
