Question by PsychoSam: I have a major problem with my compaq desktop windows xp computer. I have had to turn it off manually 3 x toda?
I do not know what is going on with my desktop computer but the mouse keeps freezing and it will not straighten out. I have to turn the machine off manually and later start it up normally. I noticed the last time I lost the desktop screensaver and had to reset it. Sometimes it works for awhile but other times it keeps freezing up. I do run the antivirus and keep it uptodate with everything. Thanks for the answers.

Windows have some tools, like scandisk/autofix that came be run from mycomputer, right clik properties,tools, then marked the 2 boxes okey and reestart, before that update your antivirus then reestart, after bios menu,press f8 select safe mode then diskclean and defragmented then run your antivirus then reestart again.
