I am having a difficult time with my home computer. It takes forever to open any program and usually tells me the program isn't responding. I try to type in word or powerpoint and it takes a long time for the cursor to come back after every word. I have an antivirus program that is running and tells me there are no problems. What can I do to fix this problem? My computer is only 1 year old.

check your performance options to make sure that your memory usage is set to "Programs" and not "System Cache".

To get to Programs, Right click on My Computer, then click Properties, then go to the Advanced Tab, then Click on Performance. Once in Performance Click Advanced.

If it is set to System Cache, then that is your problem, switch it to Programs.

This might not be it, but it's worth a check....

Make sure that you have enough memory for your computer to run.
