    trouble with freeze up with updates. and other


    when most of the programs stop working or are working to slow, I try to restart to see if that helps the problem.
    only to find out there is an update waiting to install. is it normal for this to stop the computer like this? is any body having the same problem as I am?

    and what is this blue underlined words? all I need to do is touch it with my curser and a pop up shows up with some
    kind of commercial. and this computer is supposed to stop popup's.
