    Does it freeze for a short time then unfreeze?

    It sounds as if you have something interrupting it. If this were me, I'd assume malware of some kind.

    Everyone has their own favourite suite of programs for these generally difficult situations. Mine are:

    http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/malwarebytes-anti-malware/ Third. (Remember to turn on rootkit detection)

    Hi Jojo.. Thanks for the help. I actually fixed it because it had a loose cable. But, I still ran the programs you linked which got rid of a lot of adware stuff. As a result, my system is much smoother.

    Can you recommend a good program to clean my registry without wrecking it?

    read the following to see if you really do need a registry cleaner:

    Courtesy of PA Bear:

    TIP: If you ever again think your Registry needs to be cleaned, repaired, boosted, tuned-up, cured, tweaked, fixed, maximized, "swept" or optimised (it doesn't), read http://chris.pirillo.com/are-registry-cleaners-safe-to-use/

    and/or

    http://www.edbott.com/weblog/2005/04/why-i-dont-use-registry-cleaners/

    then draw your own conclusions. Also see

    Good to hear koolx.

    Can't add anything to Elizabeth's answer.

    The registry is one of those issues, rather like brain surgery and the moods of women. You know they are there but best leaving it to the brave and the skilled.

    Thank you Elizabeth and Jojo. You helped open my eyes to the potential risk of using registry cleaaners. I will as a result steer clear of them. Thank you once again!
