7/2/2009 10:15:19 PM haven't had a whole lot of trouble with it really until today. I heard about some "pirate" site, and I went to it, and a popup came up that looked like a warning box that I will get when I shut the computer down. I didn't look at it really, I am just used to clicking "OK", and since I did that, I have had porno.com and viagra.com and adult.com popping up constantly, and some "antivirus system pro" somehow is on my computer, and I can't get it off. I am getting warnings of viruses and spyware from that program constantly, and it just says I need to buy their software.

5/22/2009 1:37:19 PM ALREADY PURCHASED YOUR SOFTWARE PROGRAM AND IT JUST STOPPED WORKING... IT STARTS TO SCAN BUR SHUTS OFF AND DISSAPEARS AFTER 6 SECONDS... WHY DOES IT DO THAT AND CAN YOU FIX IT? I WAS VERY SATISIFIED WITH YOUR SOFTWARE UNTIL IT STOPED WORKING. THANK Q! KEITH McCLURE 602-885-6404

When I bring up the task manager there does seem to be a larger number of processes running than I remember from times past, typically 50 to 54.

5/21/2009 7:39:33 PM overall I love it but over the years performance has been downsliding even though I keep up on the maintenance. I have updated the ram to double the factory but lately overclocking will not stop and temp runs between 165 F and 192 F, at about 195 F the pc will just shut down.

12/28/2009 10:09:50 PM PC is dual-bootable into XP Pro or W7 Ultimate. It frequently and unpredictably shuts down without warning or errors while running in either OS. Analysis of the Application and System Event Logs discloses no clues as to the source of the fault. Since the laptop is vulnerable to shut down under either OS, a hardware failure is suggested. However, the BIOS diagnostics report no problems with CPU, hard drives, or RAM.

12/26/2011 12:12:15 AM I have been very satisfied with this computer most of it's life. However, it is getting older now and am having symptoms I don't know how to correct. it freezes someetimes, get high memory usage messages even though may only be usig IE, videos recently started playing skippy, slow to load anything. Took as much out of startup as I dared. Frequently cean. I thik there is a technical thing wrong, like once it did this before and the computer network guy at worked fixed and it worked great (said it had reverted to a prior version of windows). I don't work there anymore so don't have access to him. I had almost filled up hard drive so uninstalled some programs, moved media to an external hard drive and now still only have 26^free space, much better. But videos were playing ok before I did all this cleanup. I get "out of memory" too often now.I need to get a little more time use out of this computer.

5/6/2009 7:25:51 AM This computer is having difficulties doing anything. Whenever I have sound coming from the speakers you can here it skip and jump. The computer has frequent spurts of lag whenever tryingto do something other than sit still. I'd like to get this computer up and running so I can play a simple 2d online game.
