What have you done in regards to malware prevention and cleanup?
Sometimes it won't start in the first place - when I go to Windows Task Manager it states NOT RESPONDING and I have to end task (which often doesn't work immediately).
Other times it can work fine then just freezes and won't do anything.
When I have chosen to end task (using Task Manager) I have sometimes had messages saying things aren't responding. These flick up then disappear very quickly. Two that I've managed to read are DDEserver and ccSvcHst.
This hasn't starting happening in conjuction with anything else I've done with the PC.
Any clues?? (from a not very technical person!!!)
