Freeze ups and slow downs Reward $2
Created by mcmc1012, 287 days ago, 681 views

I use a laptop and it freezes or starts to drag. I use Firefox, but it happens with IE also although not so much. CCleaner relieves the problem or sometimes Wise registry cleaner fixes it too. But the freeze ups continue. Netflix drags the most, but fact is these freeze ups have always been a problem on every laptop I've owned. What am I doing wrong? Also I get "script errors" notifications too.

I am giving you the best solution, not the easiest:

1.) Save your important data: photos, savegames, etc. Put it on a USB stick for later on
2.) Using your Windows installation kit, delete all of the data from your hard drive. The best option would be to delete all of the partitions and create new partitions from scratch. Create 1 partition for the Operating System, and another one for storing other data. It is always a good idea to have a separate partition for sotring your personal data. This way, if anything wrong happens you will only lose your OS installation, not your data as well.
3.) Delete partitions, create fresh partitions, as instructed above. The best option would be to have 2 partitions: 1 for the OS and 1 for storing personal data. Install Windows from scratch.
4.) Install Windows
5.) COnfigure Windows. Look for every possible setting in the Control Panel, Desktop, taskbar and anything in between and make sure you will disable anything you are not using.
6.) Use this guide to give your computer a sligh boost in performance:

7.) Download Driver Booster, and make sure to update all of your drivers

8.) Download Ccleaner and select all of the boxes there, clean up your computer thoroughly

9.) Download Privazer and do the same as the above ( Very useful in combination with CCleaner ! )

10.) Make sure you defragment / optimize your system on a regular basis. Use the tools that Windows gives you.
(In the start menu search box, type "Optimize" or "Defrag" - and the right porogram will show up for you.

11.) Run the following commands in an elevated Command Prompt or Windows PowerShell:

sfc / scannow
(Let it finish)
DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
(let it finish)
chkdsk /f
(Please make sure to run chkdsk / f on all of your system partitions. To change system partition inside Command Prompt or PowerShell simply type c: and Enter, or D: and Enter)

10.) Other useful software for speeding up / optimizing your computer:

Advandced SystemCare
Asampoo WinOptimizer
Black Bird Cleaner

Best regards,

While there are numerous potential issues that can cause your laptop to freeze, there are three that are both most common, and also account for the vast majority of stalls and stutters. The good news is that these are also the easiest for the average user to address.

The first cause is physical—laptops will often (somewhat paradoxically) freeze when overheated. Whether it's dust built up in the chassis and vents or a blanket preventing airflow, rising temperatures can put the kibosh on your late night project or marathon Netflix session faster than you can say toasted leg syndrome.

The second frequent freezer is insufficient memory. A laptop's RAM is much like the working memory of the brain, used to hold data short term while it's accessed for a variety of programs and functions. Run out of RAM and you'll find yourself running into issues, including slowdowns in performance, stuttering during processor-intensive tasks, and even full blown lockups and blue screens.

The third and final cause of laptop catatonia can be loosely labelled "software problems." This is a big umbrella that encompasses everything from BIOS changes to software bugs to malware and viruses.

Immediate Actions
Whatever the root cause may be, when you're staring down a paralytic PC, the initial steps to take are the same. First, try to close the offending program. If only one program is having issues, closing it will often temporarily solve the problem. But closing the program may be more difficult than just clicking the X in the corner.

If a program is unresponsive, try closing it through the Task Manager. You probably already know that you can access this tool by pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del, but for a quicker route, you can also use Ctrl+Shift+Esc.

If your laptop won't even let you do that, then it's time for a hard reset. On most laptops, you can do this by pressing and holding the power button for a few seconds longer than usual—just hold the button until the device powers off. If this doesn't work, you may need to do it the hard way—by disconnecting the AC connection and removing the battery.

The next thing to do is check is the temperature of the laptop. While most people don't have a Fluke IR thermometer handy, the touch test is usually sufficient. Feel the laptop chassis, but be careful, because it may be hot to the touch or even hot enough to burn. Hotspots are common around the vents and hinge, and on the underside of the system. Also do a visual inspection of the vents. If there is anything obstructing airflow, the heat buildup may be causing the problem.

Dear @ mcmc1012 ,
What I'm saying may be a big process,
could you try to Uninstall all the freezing apps and re-installing them again?
or Check for updates for the apps that are freezing
