Today I had about 500 emails from different PTR - Programs. Usally it takes about an hour to opend them. But today my computer was a bit tough and it tok about three hours. It made me very frustraded since I have lot of thins to do. I need to surf, write ads and so forth. I wonder why it happends and what to do when it happends. Do you get frustrated when it happends.

Perhaps because your computer run too many programmes at the same time .You should close them when you want to see the email.

I absolutely hate it when my computer runs slow, but I've never had anything near as bad as what you are describing! It must drive you nuts! I think you need to have someone clean out your computer, and maybe a bigger harddrive and some more ram added, if you have the money!

I made a virusscan and scan for agentprograms that sometimes get them self in. But There was nothing. Today I make a clean and fragmentation. I noticed however that it was not my computer, it was the website that had problem. I had the same problem at work when I checked my mail there to. So sometimes it is not my computers fault, it can be others to.

It makes me very frustrated. It seems like it takes years to load a program, application, a file or even deleting stuff! I hate it when my computer goes like that. Well, my sufferings were put to an end when my dad sent a new computer. It's what I'm using now. Before, I wanted to kick it and beat it up, but now, it's very precious 'cause it's fast. :]

Good for you. I belive I need a new to. But I have to wait. As long as the computer run it can wait. And I belive it was not the computer. I made a virusscan and agentscan, It did not find anything. But I noticed at work that the site I wanted to have up loaded where I have my mails, had the problem of loading. So the fault was not my computer.

my operation system is vista,and it made my laptop work like an old cattle.i always feel depressed when i open the webs or documents.as i have no time to change it ,so i should get used to it for a couple of weeks. if your computer suddenly slowed,you should check your system,maybe it was attacked by virus.

Yes I get very frustrated when my computer goes slow or freezes up. I like you have many things that need to be in so much time. Usually when my computer freezes or runs slow i restart my computer and that usually does the trick. Is that messing up my computer?

Yes, I get really very much frustrated whenever my system gets slow or hangs and will switch it off immediately without any double thought and due to that have had many issues with it and had to get my computer formatted twice because of that.

It is but natural to get frustrated and i can understand with so much of work at hand, and the limited time we all have at hand, it gets really frustrating. But i guess, we cannot do anything much at such time, as things are not in our hands. If the servers are slow , or the computers arent working well, or maybe the power cuts are for too long etc, any such unforseen circumstances come in the way, when we have so much to do, with so little time, and we know that our work is suffering, its really frustrating. I would suggest at such times, just leave your work aside, and take up some other task, get diverted and do somehing different, so that your mind is away from thoughts as to why,what happened etc, as such things we cannot help and it irritate us more if we think about them. Instead maybe spend some quality time with your family and kids, or cook up something , or clean up the palce or read a book, listen to music etc anything else, beside trying to make things work or worry why they arent working. Come back to work after a while or maybe an hour or so, maybe the problem would have got resolved and maybe youd have had a chnage and feling better, thus making you work more effeiciently, or maybe youd get more ideas about how or why things arent working etc.

Yes, sometimes here in the office I dont like it when its slow coz it affects my spend of handling calls and its really important for me to have a fast connection and a fast pc for me to be a fast customer service officer. I dont want subscribers waiting for me and I want to have a good accessibility when im onduty so it does really matter a lot.
