Thanks Mary Lou,  I had that CCleaner on my last laptop  but I  thought  we had to  pay now  thanks for putting  me  back on to it.  It is doing  a clean  now. That should  tidy  things  up.

That is one of the best little freebies around.  I use it to keep my computer clean and the free version of AVG to keep it virus safe.

I need to do that also.. I'm not having any problems with AD freezing, just everything else.. lol PSP X7 is great for freezing up on me now, thank goodness it starts again after a few minutes.. I've got tons of space left on this computer though, it's got a huge memory.  but I do need to clean some stuff out.  all the downloads from PSP and things like that I save though.  Just in case.. lol  save the plugin downloads too, and I have tons.

Lin, how much memory do you have?  The more you have , the fewer hangup's you'll have.  I have 8gb on mine which is more than enough.  I had 16gb on my last one which was really overkill.  It's the disk drive that can slow you down if you don't clean up your system now and then. I only do mine about every other month or so and it always runs nicely.

Guess what, the wee guy in my laptop couldn't find that page.  I floundered on and managed the brushes today thanks TJ.  I will see how I go looking on utube.  I think I signed up at the time. I need  to give this A D a spell and get on to my last module of the BW. - I guess

My start up is slow too. Mary Lou.  I am not using beta. I just mentioned that it was still installed and I will I uninstall  it? I will pronto. :thumb3: :animal04: maybe I should have a good clean out, but where to start phew, I never really know what to take and what to leave. maybe I should get the man in, but he likes money.  You know I used to have a very good friend who was a wiz on the computer and she was my guiding light, and a few months ago she just didn't wake up. This is probably why I am being such a   :sheep :pain. Lots of sheep in NZ lol.

So you have your purchased AD program that you are using then Shirley?

Lin, you shouldn't have any lockup problems with that much memory.  You have more than enough.

Grethe, I wouldn't use Norton on my computer even if they paid me to.  At one time, it was the best one could by. That's when Peter Norton was in charge and it was his baby.  I really admired him a lot.  I built my first computer back in the 80's after I read his book on how to do it.  His software won MANY awards.  He sold it in 1990 and from there on, in my opinion, it went down hill. I've installed it on a number of computers but always end up removing it because it constantly pops up error messages for things that are not errors, etc.  It would block me from going to various web sites that I knew were okay but Norton AntiVirus didn't like it.  It gave me a headache!  I have used AVG for years now and it's rare that I have a problem and when I do, it's usually one of my own making.  :dancegirl:
