    hello , I am new and i have seen some of my problems mentioned but none of them all together. let me make a list of everything that is wrong,

    1. when i turn on the pc , half of the time i can hear it start and the lights come on but it never loads and the screen stays black so i have to turn it off and then i get the whole windows did not shut down properly screen. I was starting windows normally but have recently started it in safe mode with networking.

    2. it freezes..all the time. It doesnt matter if i am on the desktop or on the internet. recently it has started freezing in safe mode also.

    3. Occasionally when i turn off the pc, it will log off and say it is shutting down and it wont shut down.

    usually the cause of this is a messy HDD and numerous programmes running

    start type msconfig enter go to the start up tab and untick all you see except your anti virus suite

    re boot

    start type cmd right click it run as administrator when window pops up type sfc /scannow enter and leave it to run

    then start my computer right click C drive properties tools error check tick both boxes apply re boot

    if all is then ok or at least better:

    http://www.iobit.com/iobitsmartdefrag.html set it up to defrag not automatic defrag leave it to run

    http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner as you install untick auto update and any tool bars install this run the cleaner then tools start up look to see what is starting with windows disable not delete all except your anti virus

    all the above will help dramatically but may not fix your issues totally so re post if issues remain

    if needed you can in safe mode go to start type msconfig and follow above then try a reboot as normal

    Can you tell me what amount of RAM you use. go to my computer >> right click >> see what amount of RAM you use. A premum solution is to upgrade your RAM memory.
