    . . . if you get a lot of pop ups it could be ad-ware, or you could have spy-ware. If you've installed a lot of programs from the internet you could have inadvertently installed malicious software onto your system. Check your computer logs to see what kind of traffic is going out of your computer. You'll need to shut those down before you can remove the malicious software. Or, you might try identifying the malicious software then disconnecting your PC from the internet altogether you have problems shutting down the offending programs. Anti-virus won't pick up programs you've installed sometimes. A lot of people don't know that.

    ever think about your graphics card? i know with the resolution on my pc, if i don't have a solid graphics card it wont run and freezes. so I'd suggest ether turning down the resolution or buying a good graphics card.
