    If I use my computer, by the end of the day, the mouse and computer functions slow to a crawl and audio becomes rediculously distorted and slow. I thought it was just getting overheated, but when I restart the computer it functions fine again. Can anyone help with this???

    I have a Gateway LX6810-01 tower with:
    Vista Home Premium - SP 2
    Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200 @ 2.33 GHz
    8 GB RAM
    64 Bit system
    Thanks in advance!

    Please do the following. :)

    Would you please tell me which antivirus applications you have had previously on this machine any and all.The reason I ask is because some like to hang around after you uninstall via add remove programs and require the use of removal tools.

    What kind of computer do you have exactly??Example Compaq presario c700

    Download CCLEANER

    Just DONT us the registry cleaner function of CCleaner unless you know what you are deleting exactly!!

    Then open ccleaner hit the tools button then startup second one down below uninstall then in the bottom right hand corner of ccleaner hit save to text file.Save it to your desktop and post the startup.txt here in your next reply.

    Hit the start button in lower left hand corner. Then in the run box type msconfig, then hit the services tab then put a check mark in hide microsoft services what is listed there,after hiding microsoft services?Please post back to us in a vertical list.

    Please download MINITOOLBOX When the box opens click save file, save it to the desktop and run it.

    Checkmark the following boxes:

    Flush Dns
    List Installed Programs
    List Users, Partitions and Memory size
    Click Go and post the result.

    Run sfc /scannow also run chkdsk /r Links explaining below.

    chkdsk /r

    sfc /scannow

    IF THIS IS A DESKTOP Unplug the tower open up the side.Get can of compressed air and blow out the machine and reseat the ram modules video card etc,see video Plug it back in and see how it goes.WHILE YOU HAVE THE RAM AND VIDEO CARD OUT BLOW OUT THE SLOTS THAT THEY PLUG INTO.ALSO BLOW OUT THE HEAT SINK.SEE VIDEO



    I want to make one thing very clear DO NOT use the registry cleaner function of ccleaner!!
