I am trying to help a neighbour with her computer, and need your help.
The computer is running very slowly and often freezes. I wen into msconfig and then startup to disable the many programs she had loading upon startup.
Rebooted the computer, and it seemed a little faster, and didn’t seem to freeze up as often.
Later, a program did freeze, so I pressed control/alt/delete to close it. The list of open programs was HUGE.
I am assuming that there are still a lot of programs running in the background, but don’t know how to stop them from starting up.
Any and all help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys.
