Pc freezes every 2 minutes and takes too long to startup

January 22, 2012 at 00:28:15
Specs: Windows 7, i5 / DDR3 4GB
My computer was superfast until it started giving problems. It literally takes 30 minutes to start up and it
freezes every 2 minutes. The Windows Experience Index showed a rating of 7.9 for the processor but now it only shows 4.9. The pc is quite new, I bought it 19 months ago.

Here are the specifications:
Motherboard - Intel Desktop Boards DH67BL Media Series
Processor - Intel CORE i5
Hard drive - Western Digital 500GB
RAM - 2 × Kingston DIMM 2GB DDR3 (4GB)
OS - Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit

It's really very annoying. I really need your help. How can I fix my pc or at least stop it from freezing.

Have you ever cleaned up your PC ? ie nasties, temp files etc..

Malwarebytes and CCleaner are two good freeware programs..

Start in Safe Mode with Networking and install and run Malwarebytes, remove all it finds. If you cannot install or run it, then do a System Restore first to a date at least a couple of weeks before the problem began, use 'show more restore points' if needed. Restart in Safe Mode and try Malwarebytes again.

Run Disk Clean Up: Open 'Computer', right click on your hard drive, select Properties, select Disk Clean Up. Check off everything and run it. Repeat this about monthly.

Run msconfig, go to Start Tab, uncheck all except Microsoft and your antivirus program, Apply and restart the machine (normal mode).

Clean out your browser's History, Cookies, Temporary Internet Files, etc. repeat this weekly. Reset your browser to keep History for only 2 or 3 days. Reset your browser to delete Cookies when closing it.

Report back results.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

19 months ago is not "quite new". A lot of dirt & dust can accumulate inside the case in a 1.5 yrs. Have you ever cleaned it out? It could be the heatsink/fan is becoming dust clogged, causing the CPU to overheat & throttle back.
