I have 256 MB of video card and 2.2 GB of RAM and a 320 GB hard drive and a 3.20 GHz dual core processor. Can anyone help me Thanks.

    It needs more loading time. The more detailed/graphical something is on your computer the slower it will run. That is why many people that want to get the best performance out of their computer they choose the Windows 98 theme so it runs REALLY quickly which I do 🙂

    That’s because the Vista theme uses a lot of images and icons that the regular theme doesn’t use, and a whole bunch of visual effects to boot. Each of these uses up a bit of your system’s memory.

    If you want speed, don’t use themes.

    There a several reasons why your computer is freezing/slow. First question is when was the last time you cleaned your registry. Having a corrupted registry can cause a whole host of errors and problems. Freezing up is one of them. If you have a lot of unnecessary registry keys that are hogging up your computer resources. Your computer is bound to choke. Scan your registry with a good registry cleaner. If you pull up more than 20 errors or duplication, clean your registry.

    2. Depending on your RAM specs and your computer usage. This could also be a the issue. Having an insufficient amount of free space does not allow your RAM to function properly. If you are using a lot of RAM by net surfing or other activities without enough empty space your will get freezes. You don’t need to buy new RAM but you should increase your free space by removing unnecessary data and perhaps increasing your virtual memory. The below link will show you how.

    3. Spyware could be the culprit, so do a scan and see if your computer is infected.

    4. That last area is a hardware drivers. This could be the problem if new hardware has been added to the system. So, the drivers should still be up to date. So try the first two suggestion and see if you can get your computer to stop freezing/speed up.
    Check your drivers. Hope this helps.
