How can something so WONDERFUL be SO DARN FRUSTRATING? I'm talking about the computer, of course! I've continued to have problems with mine and decided to devote my evening to running scans and troubleshooting. The last couple times I've run scans, I haven't found any problems, so it was a mystery to me until I did some Internet searches on "slow computer problems." Those searches revealed many other people with similar issues, and the "fix" for quite a few seemed to be running a registery cleaning program, so I figured that's what I'd do.
The Five Best FREE Registry Cleaning Programs sounded like a promising link to check out. Except my virus protector didn't much like any of the programs I wanted to try. More searches, and finally I found a program that I downloaded and used on my computer--only to find out I'd actually need to BUY a one year subscription to get the full benefits. Upon consideration, I figured it was cheaper than buying a new computer, and that didn't even take into consideration the cost of repairing the window I was ready to throw the old computer through.
So that's done now, and the computer seems to be running faster so far. The only problem? Before tonight, the computer ran fine at times, and at other times, it ran as slow as Bo Derick if she'd been running through quicksand in the movie 10. In slow mo.
Bed time now. If I'm back tomorrow, you'll know I haven't done anything to make the computer worse, at least. And if I'm not? Then I'm probably drop kicking the computer all the way to Best Buy. Say a little prayer, okay?
