Ok first let me get this out of my system....
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!! (whew, that felt good)
HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ; )
My computer that is about 2 years old has been getting worse and worse in it's performence.
It's slower, and slower, locks up all the time, (and beeps), pages freeze up, etc etc...
Just going to my pictures section is a PAIN, I get a green bar that takes a minute or so to finally show all my pictures, and ever click and step I take is slow, or just freezes up.
I am a COMPLETE COMPUTER DUMMIE!!!! When I do an internet search for fixing a slow computer I come up with a jillion different websites, programs, fixes, things to do, 75% I don't understand, or don't work.
I'm looking for the simplest set of instructions of what the heck I need to do, before I just bail out as I usually do every couple of years and just buy a new computer!
I recently installed "avast" free virus thingy, to try to help, and it's only gotten worse.
I also just ran "adaware 2007", and it comes up with "0 infections".
I will be happy to answer any questions about my computer, and follow any and all instructions, but please, explain it in language a complete techno idiot like lil ole me can understand!
