I am trying to help my daughter get her laptop running normally again. Less than a week ago, it started freezing up. I can't browse the internet or run any Windows applications without agonizing slowness. When I manage to get the task manager up, it said 100% disk usage. Huh? Ater doing some reading and research, I got into Safe Mode and the problems mostly disappear. She has Webroot and I've run a scan and system cleanup. No problems there.
I do have a little flag in the lower right that says I have 2 PC issues. No internet access while in Safe Mode? I can't get online. I don't know what else to do or try. Help!
