The older DOS based windows have such issues. But you didn't tell what you had a PC and Windows or what version of such.
I can't tell if the OPTIMIZING WINDOWS artticle at http://www.aumha.org/articles.htm will help you fix it or not.
I am having issues with my computer. It seems that every time I turn my computer on, it freezes up or malfuntions somehow. When I turned on my resource meter, I found that my resourses level was very low, give a take a few, because the meter is a program itself. I would like to know is that telling me what my problem is, and how do I solve this problem? What's a computer for if you cannot use? Thanks to all in advance...
