On Friday the 13th, really it was that day, I started my morning routine by
checking my email. With in a minute the screen was frozen, GRRRRR. I had to force a shut down by pressing the "button," which you are not suppose to do.
I posted on a Technology site in Facebook and got a lot of ideas and really tried them all... It continued to freeze, I worked in safe mode and did a full system scan, cleaned out the files, ran a disk check, tried a system restore, stopped the start up file and disabled the add ons. This whole trial and error occurred over four days.
I was ready to call an IT person, and Chuck said buy a new computer. One last thought was I had been using Google Chrome exclusively, so I had to find IE and to my surprise it worked with out the screen freezing.
So, I deleted Chrome and have been on IE, I will reinstall Chrome but who would have thought that a problem would so simple and easily fixed. I thought it was a software problem and I was correct but it was not what I expected. Now I have to go and install the Windows updates which have been collecting over a few days. I also read that MS had a problem with the updates from Friday the 13th of September. Guess I should go to their website and see what the revisions are.
I must say that since I have been doing all this computer cleaning, deleting and running scans I have the fastest computer East of the Mississippi.
