Worrisome Computer Issues

June 3rd, 2013 at 02:34 am

I got the blue screen of death this afternoon, but managed to extricate my PC from it. I honestly think it has something to do with shockwave or some of those video players. They seem to slow everything up.
But I'm running a full virus scan and defragging tonight.

I cashed out of one of my survey companies--American Consumer Opinion yesterday for $11, and will add that to my sales totals. The only other productive work today was reading a capstone project and some very bad student papers. But we took another long walk in attempts to stave off middle-age spread.

Lots of rain last night helped the new plantings. Sounds like a cool week here, and I'm hoping to get a lot done before school ends for DD in 10 days.

    Doing a defrag is a good idea. You might also want to see if there are any programs on your computer that you no longer use which you could uninstall. I did that recently, and now Skype is no longer freezing my computer up! Smile

    Having too many Shockwave games definitely will get you the blue screen of death.

    this could also be a monitor issue. Happened to me when My monitor died.

    I did replace the monitor w/a used one within a couple weeks BUT it was the push to update my >10 year old desktop.

    It seems like so many sites have so much going on that it often freezes my computer anymore. My laptop is about three years old and it shouldn't be doing this. Glad you fixed it and hope the defrag as well as virus scan worked.

    Nothing showed up on the virus scan, and the disk cleanup and defrag seems like it cleared things up for now at least. I did spend some time going through junk on the pc--hey--decluttering it I guess! I had photos of things I sold on ebay etc that I deleted before I defragged.

    I keep one browser plug-in free, but admittedly I don't use it much. Shockwave does hang, and when it hangs on me, it slows down the other processes as well. Do you use CCleaner to flush out cached files, and resolve registry conflicts?
