Wow, thanks for the quick replies, everyone!
As requested gsahli-
Process. 2.66GHZ. intel core 2 duo
Memory-2GB 1967 mhz. DDR3
L2 cache 6MB
disk utilized-173.39 GB
I think that is everything you asked for, not a 'computer guy' so sorry if I left something basic out.
-I see the 'wheel of misfortune' when ever I open a program, such as Excel, word, etc. They used to just open.
-It takes 5 to 10 seconds to open new internet tabs
-It takes a good 30sec. to a minute to go to sleep when I select that function.
-Takes much longer than usual to save a simple word document or excel file.
-Takes a good 30 sec. from selecting 'print' until the printer responds. It used to respond right away.
I do empty the cache files at least twice a week and I always re-start the computer after doing so. I also shut it down and re-start it to allow updates to properly install.
The computer itself is on all of the time, accept for above mentioned.
Any help much appreciated!
