Computer Too Slow And Freezing
January 7, 2017 7:34am CST
I guess I will have no choice but asking my computer technician to check my computer. Lately, it has been way too slow and sometimes it freezes and can't even type. I do not like to have my computer away from me. The technician is a very good one and does his best to do the work as soon as possible. But still, I become very impatient when my computer is away. I have a Samsung tablet but do not like to use the keyboard at all, it drives me nuts. Are you "unhappy" when your desktop is at the shop?

I hate when that happens, I hope you get it back really soon. My old refurbished pc had Windows 7 and it either became infected with a virus or already had one when I got it so it was slow and froze a lot. In January I bought a new one, not refurbished, and it hasn't given me any trouble yet. I'm keeping my finger crossed.

@marlina Norton I believe has a similar cleaner you can run. Ccleaner helps speed up my computer when its bogged down from visiting sites. I run it on my sons computer laptop every few days to clear the junk we don't need. On my new Windows 10 computer the Ccleaner I had suddenly wont work on that platform so I need to see on cnet if I cnet if I can find another one.

I don't think I've ever used a technician (except when I was moving and wanted to make sure there weren't any insects living in my computer ... and had my mom's friend's computer-technician son take it apart & clean it out). When it slows down, it's usually (if the equipment's not just old & worn out) 'too many temp-files on your machine'---files the computer feels like it has to spend time watching-over rather than running what you want it to run. I keep my computer's memory clean by using a memory-cleaning program---for a long time, I used cCleaner; but a fellow myLotter showed me Revo Uninstaller when a virus got in that cCleaner couldn't clean.

Hi, sorry you're having trouble with your computer. I have a Samsung Tablet PC running Windows 10, and another that runs Android. I don't know which Operating System is running on your tablet, but.... If your tablet is running Windows 10 try... 1. Disk Defrag 2. Disk Cleanup 3. Do all the system updates 4. Run the built in anti virus 5. Empty the computer's recycle bin. 6. Do a system Restore to a point where the computer was running ok. 7. Check your hard disk C:\ drive. It may be close to full, and you may have to delete some old programs or files. If your tablet is running Android try... 1. Updating/Upgrading the version of Android you are using. --Usually the tablet runs this automatically, but check your settings and find where you do the System updates. 2. May be too many apps and the storage is close to full. It also depends how old the tablet is. Well, hope these troubleshooting tips help out, before you decide to take the tablet to a technician. If you do want to go the technician route, then consider a new tablet. Sometimes the cost of fixing a computer or tablet is more expensive than getting a brand new, faster, and more powerful machine. I also have a twelve year old HP laptop that works very well, because I took out the Windows operating system, and installed Linux, which is free, and less computer resource intensive than most other operating systems. Good luck with your tablet! :)
