That's a statement, not a question.
1. I disable the touchpad and plug in a mouse.
2. For the space bar I wait a while to see if item 1 helps. If not, I use an USB keyboard and order a new keyboard. At this point I've already used the canned air to get the hair and crumbs out.
3. AVG can be too touchy. I ignore it since movies on a web browser should use a lot of memory.
The stalling causes are all over the map from using wifi for streaming to a machine that has never seen canned air. More reading at
Actually, several issues began a few weeks ago on my laptop. Here's a list:
*scroll bar malfunction, will not scroll back up (just sinks to the bottom), or jumps around, firefox and windows xp
*cursor wanders to right dozens of spaces when trying to type, no visible characters, in various programs, search bars, etc.
*Space bar stops working on and off
*Icons/ selection boxes won't select, select themselves (ie, when I go to stand by/ shut down, stand by is already selected, can't select anything else)
*movies stall repeatedly (pause on their own, netflix)
*AVG shows pop up message (during movies): Firefox is using a large amount of memory, tells me to close and reopen
help!!!!! I have work to do/get and I don't know how to fix this- my Toshiba is old, but so far a diehard. I ran the temporary trial of AVG PC Tune-up & 1-Click Maintenance , it was better for about 40 minutes..... thanx
