Searching for some answers to a problem that's suddenly affecting my PC ; and found this site ;
(Was able to post the confirmation /activation link off my iphone )
For no apparent reason I seem to have a problem with my home computer that runs Windows 7.
Firstly I found that on opening Windows Live Mail - it would freeze ; I cant access mail.
Usually the note is that 'Windows Live Mail' did not shut down correctly last time I used it. -
I can however go to mail.live.com and log in there OK.
I then thought I would do a basic system restore - but for some reason the last restore point I now have is only a day old ; when the problem began.
I have had the same computer/system operating fine for many years.
I wondered if a firewall was stopping something - so temporarily deleted AVG ; That didn't help at all, so I went to download it back again - but cant.
Likewise I cant download pictures to facebook for example, although I canopen Fb OK and write/post there.
I checked that I had ample space on the computer, as a reason I can no longer download things - and yes, that is fine, ample space left.
To summarize ; I cant download anything, upload anything, and windows live freezes a minute after I open it, not letting me read emails or do anything.
Apart from that, as far as Browsing/google etc all else is fine- as normal.
I can not think of any activity Ive done to alter settings, and rarely look at/download anything that may have been infected or caused the problem.
Any suggestions greatly appreciated !
p.s. - I came to this site after searching for similar problems - and noted the comment to 'open task manager'
I have just done that, but don't really know what Im looking for ! Although I do see it states windows live 'processing' -
