Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

My ACER 5720 keeps freezing and is not picking up internet have taken out battery then replaced it , then it works ok for a while, I've only had this laptop for 9 months


Answers :

Ok i've seen this freezing before and its not brand specific. If you are ok with installing software here are two great and FRee prgrammes to help you.

I just need to ask you about online security. do you posses them (ie. anti-virus AND andti-malware) and do you keep them upto date. if any answers are no then read on.

There is a great free Antimalware programme By MalwareBytes this is the first one to download and install, updates are free and nothing to pay for in the future.

Here is the link:
http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10804572.html?part=dl-10804572&subj=dl&tag=button

If you have any of the free antivirus programmes like AVG etc then you are most likely not to be fully protected. If you have Norton/McAfee etc and have not paid to be updated then your most likely free to be infected, nice companies hey.

If you have any of the above freebies or out of date installs then its time to get rid of these useless/system chocking products, uninstall all of them asap.

Ok if you have Avira Antivirus then i'm impressed and you have just to update it FREELY of cause and do a full scan of your system daily or weekly should surfice.

Here is the link for Avira Antivirus FREE:

http://download.cnet.com/Avira-AntiVir-Personal-Free-Antivirus/3000-2239_4-10322935.html?part=dl-10322935&subj=dl&tag=button&cdlPid=11012914

Run malware first update and scan. to rid your system of baddies, do not hesistate to remove the lot. reboot system after removal.

Install Avira and do a full scan again if you keep your system clear then you will find it gets quicker.

Hope this helps, there are many other programmes to help but to be totally honest, uninstalling programmes is the best way to speed up your system. NEVER remove files you are not sure about.
