Hi, Does anyone have any suggestions as what to do about a PC that constanly does not respond. It is doing all sorts of silly and annoying things. It freezes, it does not repsond and lots of times, when I click on a link or page up and that sort of thing, nothing happens, it also closes the program, or sometimes the IE down. I have taken my PC back to factory settings twice now and still it is no better. I only have the softwear programs on it that I really need and all these programs worked fine before. Something similar happened a couple of years back and I ended having the PC engineer come in and he put me more memory on it and told me it would be fine and it has been until now. I do have an awful lot of files on it but most of them are on the D drive and there is still some space on them so they are not completely full. Do I need to get even more memory? I hope not as it costs and I dont have the cash. I do have an external drive that I could transfer some files onto.
Any suggestions as to what I could do myself to help it work better, would really be appreciated.

Thanks for the help. I am not quite sure what you mean when you say it is how I am using it. I don't really know what I should not be doing or what I should not have installed as I only have softwear on it that I have used before and not had any problems with.
