My Vista recently began to say "Not Responding" several times every day ... I'm often actually sometimes still able to work in a different screen while getting "Not Responding" msg elsewhere - strange??? I am NOT a tech guy so Googled for possibilities ...
Here's what I've done:
(1)had two anti-malware/anti-virus programs running simultaneously (MalwareBytes and BitDefender) so got rid of one (note: have no problems having both running on my Windows 8 desktop)
(2) did the "sfc/scannow" process and apparently there WAS some problem but it wasn't fully resolved
(3) read lots of useless crap at the Microsoft Forums and was directed here
Any help much appreciated. Please be VERY PRECISE with answers/suggestions and assume I know nothing. Thanx.
