Computer Keeps Freezing On Me

My computer keeps freezing on me, and it is most annoying. I should have it checked by my technician, but I don't want to part from it. I hate it when the computer is at the shop. I have a tablet but I much prefer to work on my desktop computer. I just wish I had 2 computers with all my stuff on, so when one is getting fixed, I could still work. How many computers do you have at home?

Do you have any idea why they freeze? And what do you do about it?

@marlina In most cases, it can be solved by just clearing caches but if not the computer needs to be reprogrammed.

One computer is totally enough. Have you run a degfrag or cleaned things up recently?

My desktop is at home in CT. I miss it. However, I am well connected here in Florida with my laptop, 2 iPads, iPhone, and internet connected TV if need be.

@marlina Yes, but he is also a computer programmer and has to test the programs on the different kind of computer, this is why he also has a laptop and a tablet and two different operating system on his two desktops.

Same here, there is no comparison to working on the desktop.

We have one desk top computers and 2 laptops. I prefer my desk top so I know how annoying it is when it doesn't work.

I have a laptop only. I parted with my desktop a few years ago and haven't needed it since. I hope your computer gets resolved with the freezing. I can't image how annoyed you are by now with your computer freezing!

Only this ancient laptop that freezes on me all the time. I hope you can get it taken care of without waiting too long for it.

As crazy as it sounds the laptop seems better than the desktop. I've been obsessed with desktops two years ago and i finally end up with a laptop and it's doing good for me.

Right now we have two laptops, but one doesn't work that well. We let the kids use that one, so if it quits working it isn't a huge deal. We also have a few tablets, but there are things I won't do on a tablet, like this site.

I have my desktop and my laptop and my kindle. I use my laptop the most though and my kindle for reading. I hope you can get yours fixed so it stops freezing.

I only have one. Mine. It is perfect and no problems. It is the wireless that is a problem here as it slows to a crawl at times. I hope you get yours fixed.

My son is sending his laptop off to be fixed today. I hope they can fix it, he has to have it for his college classes.
