    Hi hope someone can help me. My laptop is running really slow. Simply tasks like trying to use Windows Media player keep freezing up and gives me the error message "Media player has stopped working - A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available". Will also sometimes lock up trying to open control panel. Computer has also frozen up on me several times and wouldn't respond to anything so i had to turn off and on again.
    Very slow while browsing the web and just checking yahoo email and i have cable modem through road runner.

    I ran a virus scan with Avast and it has found nothing.
    Someone please help!..

    Thanks you so much in advance for any assistance you can provide.

    Frank
