My computer is constantly crashing & it's slow!
Alright let me start off by saying that I am new & looking for help. My computer is about 6 years old. I got it back in Christmas of 99.Its a
Hewlett Packard Pavilion
Intel Celeron processor 600 Mhz
64MB SDRAM memory with up to 11MB allocated memory
10.2 gb Ultra DMA hard drive (Currently right now I think I only have 3.20 gb in the hard drive left)
Sony CD-R/CD-RW Drive 52x/32x/52x
Model # - 6730-L
Alright I usually find that my computer crashes when either I first get past the password screen, this doesn't happen alot.But I usually find that most of the time my computer locks up when I'm surfing the net & it's annoying.Usually when I'm downloading or listening to music when I'm browsing. Then sometimes my computer is slow when I go to different websites & I am using a cable modem.Overall my computer is slow when it comes to internet tasks. It freezes alot & I really get tired of it because when I download movies,games & music & I let the computer be, I come back to see it frozen & then I have to shut it down & reboot again.
I've tried various spyware/and adaware removal programs, it doesn't seem to help problems plus, the spyware & adaware keeps coming back. Like yesterday, I deleted a whole bunch of spyware.A couple of days later, it detects new spyware & there's a whole lot of it. It never goes away!
Plus at times, it take the computer a while for things to load up, like I opened a file sharing program & it took forever for it to open up. You can hear my computer straining hard to get it open.
So overall, what can be the problem?
