This week I started having all kinds of computer problems just out of the blue. I uninstalled the "really cool bionicle (or something like that) wallpaper" my 7 year old grandson installed a few months ago, and that cured the noise the computer was making............kind of a hissing sound. I also ran the spy detector and found a few things to delete, but it didn't help.
- The memory was low and I could only have two things open or it would freeze up and tell me there was not enough memory to perform some of the functions.
- I was getting web pages popping up without notice...............not pop ups, whole web sites. THAT was REALLY irritating.
- I was getting tons of junk email.
I was so frustrated, and finally remembered a neat feature that I have on the computer, and my last one too. I had forgotten about them.
So yesterday, I ran the program to restore the computer to a date a month ago. Now everything is working just great!!
Just a tip if anyone else is having a similar problem. Check your computer for that feature and try it.
You will not lose your work, only things that have been installed during the time since after the restore date.
