My computer kind of froze but I can just move around the notepad window i have open. I think it may have been ddosed. Is there a way to make more room on my computer ao that i can open my chrome window with tabs that have information i still want? Restarting would make the information disappear. Also i opened my task manager, which is frozen now, but it said the ram was around 90%.I googled and saw a it's possible to add ram with readyboost usb but how eould i do tjat when i cant even click on anything. The start bar disappeared along with yhe desktop icons. Also is this even a to solve this problem?

If possible, download, install, run MiniToolBox and Piriform's Speccy.  Keep logs in your data folder, don't post anything until BC folks ask for such.  I'm wondering if you can boot into Safe Mode without Networking and test a few programs that do not require internet connectivity.

When you say "ddosed," what do you mean? There is no way to get back the chrome tabs without doing some complicated functions. It sounds like explorer.exe has been quit, so you'll have to restart your PC to get it back. Please restart your PC and see if the problem persists.
