Hi there,

I have been experiencing for some time now, this sort of "freezing" system, which is more like the HD is running and then, all of a sudden, if I try to click anywhere it just wouldn'r do it.... It's like I am clicking and it gets irresponsive. In fact, I've been able to sort this annoying situation by opening the Windows Task Manager (via the Ctrl + Alt + Del keys) - it shows that all processes are running and everything gets back to normal. However it keeps happening and it's such a pain....

Thanks for any help or assistance.

Hugs. Tony:-/

P.S. My laptop is a Toshiba L30

Sounds like explorer is hanging. Do you have an antivirus solution installed? Have you run a virus scan and a spyware scan?

Sounds like explorer is hanging. Do you have an antivirus solution installed? Have you run a virus scan and a spyware scan?

I do have AVG Free Edition at the moment (Antivirus) and another software called SUPERAntispyware (also a free edition). However, I do run them often and this very situation was already happening before installing this software. :icon_confused: I used to have a paid edition of Panda Antivirus 2008 (Platinum).

It just seems weird really. It's like something gets hold of the system, hijacks/seizes it - like I explained initially, once I open the Windows Task Manager and then close it again, it all gets back to normal.:icon_eek:

I just wonder what it could possibly be...:confused:

The problem is greedy web advertising with moving pictures that takes the entire CPU time. By the time you get the task manager open, the ad has quit.

:S Is it? Oh my Gosh... Would there be any way of overcoming those obstacles, though? Because the thing is that, if I do not open the task manager nothing will change at all...:confused:

But what you just said makes lots of sense to me. Thanks for your input.

do you have hijackthis? it might help to determine what the error is

Yes, mate, I do have hijackthis... Should I post its results here? I tell you what I'll do. I'm posting it here now and then would you please check it out for me? Otherewise, would you please let me know where I should post it so that someone could take a glimpse at it and tell me what to do to sort this fuss out?

Thanks a lot for that. Hugs. Tony ;)
