Hi Doreen.

If you've had the computer for a long time, chances are that a combination 
of issues are affecting its performance.  There are many tools available 
both free and commercial which can tune up clogged and inefficient 
computers.  Two I have used with reasonable success are Iolo's System 
Mechanic 12, which among other features has a PC total care function and 
active care function, which performs many of the most necessary maintenance 
tasks automatically while you're not using your computer.  If you are 
getting file not found errors, corrupted DLL errors, blue screen of death or 
other random crashes, this definatly worth a try.  Another tool I have used 
is called Reimage, this tool will replace missing and or corrupted Windows 
installation files.  Its like completely reinstalling Windows but without 
the loss of any of your personal data, documents and settings.  You can find 
out more about Iolo's System Mechanic at www.iolo.com, and reimage at 
www.reimage.com.  Both of these solutions are accessible with JAWS.

All the best, Ibrahim.

Hi everybody:
Hoping somebody can help me.
Using a desktop computer running Windows XP home, Office 2003 and JAWS 12.
At the present time the computer is running extremely slowly, often freezing 
and I keep getting “Not Responding” messages when I try to terminate 
programs.  Uninstalling programs is extremely slow and adding programs and 
software is also problematic as well.
I have virus scanned, malware bited it, C cleaned it and anti spywared it 
but it doesn’t seem to make any difference.
Before I take it to a computer person does anyone have any thoughts on what 
else I might try please?
With many thanks.
