Having problems with your HP PC Desktops ?

This is a recurring problem. System runs fine for a few weeks, then will boot up very slowly or not at all. I do a disc cleanup and delete the temp files and look at msconfig and uncheck some of the automatic loads. The system will take forever to shut down and longer to boot up. Any thoughts?


Answers :

There might be virus and try to clean and install fresh and have a good virus protection program which gets daily updates to keep the system safe. Try to check for the adware and malware components installed
