I have been having severe problems with a Toshiba Media Center laptop . It locks up and says (not responding) all the time and the only way to shut it down is by holding in the power button for a hard shut down. I realize that it is a pretty old computer but it has 512 MB RAM and a 2.6 Ghz Processor, and it normally runs fast. I have disabled all eye candy, defragmented the drive using Diskeeper, run Registry Mechanic V.5, Ad-Aware SE Plus, Ewido free version, and PcPitstop Optimize. Any help you could give would be greatly appreciated,

From what you posted it looks like you have done almost everything. Have you deleted temporary files and cleared history?

Also at the top of the OFrum Window is an article:
