Having multiple programs running simultaneously can often slow down your computer. If you currently do not have any antivirus on your laptop I strongly suggest you download Immunet or another antivirus software. If the behavior persists please install Immunet and run the diagnostic tool:


1) Click Start -> All Programs -> Immunet 3.0 -> Support Diagnostics Tool. 
2) A new file will be created on your desktop with a name like Immunet_Support_Tool_[date and 
3) Please email this file to support@immunet.com
I can then assist you further.

Hi rechly121, something to check when troubleshooting a computer's diminished performance is how many start-up programs run at boot-up. Only allow programs that absolutly need to automatically start when Windows boots up. This can, at times, greatly increase a system's overall performance (including a much quicker boot-up time) because there isn't a bunch of needlessly running processes chewing up CPU cycles & RAM. Something worth looking into I think.


As far as the behavior you described, perhaps there's an incompatability problem with one or more installed software packages you mentioned. Either with the Windows OS itself or perhaps with each other causing Windows to crash and then force restart. Just a theory of course but a logical extrapolation.


Cheers, Ritchie...

Regardless of how good your AV is if you have a bunch of non-essential start-up programs (especially if you have limited system resources to begin with, like a netbook, tablet or even an older computer) that can have serious detrimental effects on your PC. That's the message I'm tryin' to convey.
