I have for some time had problems with my computer slowing down and suffering from frequent bouts of 'Not Responding' on applications, mainly Internet Explorer and Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel.
I previously enquired via Malware Forum - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic416137.html/page__view__getnewpost
They advised there were no malware issues and suggested I try this forum.
My computer is now at the stage where it is periodically unusable, so any help would be gratefully received.
I have been fighting the same type of activity (or lack there of}. Mine is a desktop. I run CA virus Detector, Super AntiSpyware, PC tools
Registry Mechanic. No virus or malware were detected, and just purchased AOL Computer Checkup. It showed about 700 registry errors.,
Claims to have fixed them, and that all is well. However problem persists unchanged. System operates in spurts. If I wait long enough
on a browser window in Firefox.to open I can use it (ie:like now on this page.) It just feels like an important file has disappeared.
