    Over the last 60 days, my computer has slowed and continues to slow the longer it is on. Had Geeks on Call over for 2 hours and he cleaned the computer up; start menu, cookies and temporary files. This did not help. Same thing happened one year ago and after talking with Dell I had to clean the machine and reinstall Windows. Any help before I have to do this again. Thanks so much for any help

    Do you have any printer/scanner/fax/multifunctional devices installed on your system?

    We would appreciate if you could copy down the exact error your system is facing.

    I finally got the error message:

    svchost.exe has generated errors and will be closed by windows. You will need to restart the program. An error log is being created. I click on the button and nothing happens?

    Thanks
