Windows 7: Computer not responding and freezing when only one program is running.

07 Apr 2014   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
Computer not responding and freezing when only one program is running.

Help me my computer is too slow and is freezing. I have McAfee anti virus software and Uniblue power suite pro 2014 installed. I have moved my files to external hard drive and cleaned my registry but the system has not improved the performance. I am not running windows aero theme as well. Every program takes time to open and respond.

Welcome to our forum.
I know of no one who recommends McAffe. I would recommend using another anti virus of your choice.

This Uniblue fix everything program is probably like the rest of the programs like it. They destroy computer systems.
You have stated in your post that you have cleaned your registry and I presume you used Uniblue.

I would start off by using a Restore point before you installed Uniblue.
Then I would do a sfc /scannow and see if Windows 7 has any system file problems.

System Restore Point - Create

By Brink:
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

I used to use Firefox a lot until about a year or so ago when it kept freezing while you were searching. It just freezes and shows (Not Responding) on the top. It takes about 5 maybe 10 seconds each time it happens. But it does happen a lot. I also seem to notice it does it more as you go longer...

Ok, so here is what has gone down so far: I had Windows Home Premium x64, and decided that I wanted to go back to factory settings. I used Dell Datasafe to revert to factory settings but it froze (I let it sit for 24 hours just to make sure) and I had to turn it off. It wouldn't boot up after...

Also whenever I play any games like SC2 or WoW it freezes and repeats the same sound for about 30-60 seconds. It's been doing this ever since I upgraded to Windows 7 from Windows...
