Default help plz

My computer is running very poorly. Some may have seen my first post about my downloads failing. Now the computer is getting worse. When i try to open folders (even the my computer folder), the screen goes blank except for the background. All the icons come back on, but nothing opens. What is ailing the computer. Plz help.

Can you post the complete specs of the computer, such as CPU, hard drives, motherboard, power supply, etc?

You have no idea of what's inside your computer? Then download Belarc Advisor. It sholud tell ya what you need to know about your comp.


Hmm... When did your computer start slowing down? Did you install any software or anything before it started?

Sounds like a case of a bad virus, or spyware. Try using a different program like Ad-aware, and AVG. Use CPU-Z, to find out comp specs.

today, i had a computer technician.... my friend come over and fixed my computer, but, its still messing up. we have satellite, there are no clouds in the sky, but the downloads are still very bad. I'm thinking it may be our modem.
