i have a 10 month old HP 2210m desktop. for the last 6 months i have encounter many frustrating issues. i'm using seven, ie7, outlook2007, avg and malewarebytes. at times it is very sluggish with downloads (my older PC, which i retired becuse it WAS too slow, is actually faster most of the time.
the most aggravating issue is being booted off line while in outlook. when i click send/ receive it shows it trying to send but usually ends up saying the program is not responding. i encounter this several times a day. sometimes in outlook, the screen goes pale and locks up and i have to force a shut down. most of the time when i shut down, it seems to take forever and often i have to force it too. i have contacted HP customer service twice and they performed diagnostics on the hardware and found nothing- said it was definately the software. had my computer guy (he trouble shoots business computers for a living) twice clean the hardrive and reinstalled everything and he's positive it's not a virus/ spyware issue either. so he's baffled like me too. it's so bad i want to throw it out the window (really!) but can't afford a nu one. can anyone shed some light on what might be the problem and how to correct it? thank you!
