I have a 3 year old 17" HP Pavilion that is starting to give me problems. Internet explorer crashing, windows explorer crashing, occasional frezzing requiring a hard boot. Thinking of getting a new puter, but with Win 8 in the pipeline was wondering if I should just wait it out and see what Win 8 has to offer. What think you guys?
programs are crashing, does the entire system crash as well like random restarts or reboots? total freezes? if not, your registry might just be messed up after 3 years. not to mention viruses and malwares. maybe you just need a reformat. you can try that first.
