Hello, my friend's acer laptop has been freezing and or hanging a lot. For example, i might be clicking the start menu button and it'll freeze for 10 seconds; i open my computer, freezes again for another 10 seconds etc. Also, startup is slow. Like minutes slow.
I've tried running sfc /scannow but it keeps stopping at 57% with this message:
"windows resource protection could not perform the requested operation."
Scanned for malware/viruses and it found none.
I'm thinking this is a possible corrupt registry/system files problem.
What do you think?
