Laptop Computer Freezes Up, Runs Slow and Shuts Off

Question:My laptop computer freezes up, runs slow (really slow) and shuts off. I've tried registry cleaner, scan and repair programs, program that are supposed to speed it up. But it's still acting up. I also updated my antivirus software.

Answer: Is this laptop online? If so it sounds a lot like a spyware problem. I would try downloading and installing Spybot and Adaware. Both are free, updatable and do a great job of cleaning out spyware. Check out our spyware page for downolading links.

I also recommend CCleaner to clean up unused files and registry items. It is also a free program. Make sure you let it make a backup of your registry when it asks though.
