I have a Satellite Pro laptop. During the past few weeks, it keeps freezing & running slow on startup or when I surf the Internet. I cleaned out all unnecessary files on my computer, and it seems to freeze all the time especially when I am watching YouTube videos. Well, it freezes to the point where I have to un-plug the laptop and plug it back in constantly. I know this does no good to my computer, but I have to do like that way. Any ideas what to do to speed up my Toshiba Satellite?
