    Laptop keeps freezing & really slow

    OK, so I've updated the machine, disabled the Google progs, but it is still happening. It was good since the Windows update, completed yesterday morn(tho don't know she did much on it yesterday) She had noticed it got slow & sticky after a flat battery, so I told her to leave it unplugged & let...

    Laptop keeps freezing & really slow

    Well it's going slow again, without that Origin program. Is it worth disabling the Google ones in the clean boot? My daughter also said it seems to go flat pretty quickly - maybe needs new battery - and whenever she doesn't plug it in in time & it shuts down, when she restarts it, it's sticky...

    Laptop keeps freezing & really slow

    OK. Any way to download the prog via my download manager, so I can do it 'off peak'?

    Laptop keeps freezing & really slow

    Thanks. Should I give it a few days to see if the prob happens after switching off that Origin prog? Or just do the update? Is this a big thing to download/install? It's been my experience that updating Windows has been in the past & I am on satellite internet - so slow & small amnt of data. I...

    Laptop keeps freezing & really slow

    Hi Evan, no I haven't done that - when it freezes, can't do anything tho, except turn it off via the physical button. Can move the mouse, but nothing works. It's Windows 10.

    Laptop keeps freezing & really slow

    OK, so the only services that were happening, after hiding all microsoft stuff, were Google Chrome & Google updater, and 2 Origin things - this Origin is some kind of base program needed to run a game my daughter has, called The Sims 4. So I've re-selected the Google apps & left the Origin ones...

    Laptop keeps freezing & really slow

    Yeah, still happening. I thought to do another clean on it(just thru the Windows cleaner) before I did a clean boot, but it hung on that too. So... clean boot. What next?

    Still getting crashes

    Hello, had a prob & thought due to Avast, which people helped me with, but premature about calling it 'solved', it's still happening! Other thread; https://pchelpforum.net/t/win-10-bsod.52193/

    Laptop keeps freezing & really slow

    Hello, My daughter's Acer Aspire One has issues. It keeps freezing & can't do anything, except use the physical off switch to reboot. Thought maybe something to do with having Avast(there was another thread that got closed, which had logs but got closed) which I uninstalled, but understand...

    Other machine 'sticky' & glitchy - maybe same issue as other thread

    Yes to all the above. As I don't use Chrome, didn't see earlier, but it's on this machine & I have now removed any extensions pertaining to Avast. Below are the adwcleaner & Farbar logs... # ------------------------------- # Malwarebytes AdwCleaner 8.0.4.0 # ------------------------------- #...

    The other machine

    I posted a thread about my daughter's machine but I guess it was in the wrong section as I got no replies & apparently it's one for Gus (please!). Here's the link https://pchelpforum.net/t/other-machine-sticky-glitchy-maybe-same-issue-as-other-thread.53121/

    Hopefully that's this one done, but I did start another thread(think same prob) for my daughter's machine that hasn't yet been got to.
