Having problems with your Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop ?

My pc is running very slow. It shuts down when I am in the middle of something. What may be the problem? After I installed Norton's 360, it got worse. Takes a long time just to start up after I reboot. I am on DSL. Thanks, Pam Antee


Answers :

It is hard to diagnose what could be the problem it could be the ram in your computer is going bad is easily replaceable, it could also be the hard drive or some malicious software (spyware,virus). It would seem that ram may be the problem because norton anti virus uses a good bit of system resources and if it didn't find a problem but made the computer slower it sounds like hardware. If you need me to clarify any of this please let me know.
