One of the most common complaints regarding Windows Vista is that it is somewhat susceptible to freeze ups. When freeze ups are mentioned it is typically related to a slowdown or complete lack of response from the computer system to the user. This is a very annoying issue as many times the freeze ups will happen when something important is being done on the computer.
As Windows Vista is a newer operating system with many add-ons and applications that run in the background there are often times when the system simply has no more memory and slows down and eventually will freeze up. To resolve this issue the best thing to do is to look at the startup manager to examine what programs will initiate on start up as well as which programs are running. More often than not there are more programs running than needed which can lead to freeze ups. If there are a lot of programs that you can see running that you don’t need you can end the tasks and hopefully that will help to fix the Windows Vista freeze ups that are being encountered.
Another issue that might be causing the Windows Vista freeze ups is the power supply. The Windows Vista operating system is very prone to system issues, including freeze ups, when there are fluctuations in the power that is being provided to it. If you believe that this could be the cause of the Windows Vista freeze ups that you are encountering the best thing to do is to go to a computer store and look into an uninterrupted power supply, which will provide constant power free of fluctuations. This will ensure that your Windows Vista system will stay freeze up free.
Another possibility when looking into Windows Vista freeze ups is that the system might be accessing information within the registry. As mentioned before the Windows Vista operating system comes with a lot of different plug ins, add-ons, and widgets that all can create messes within the registry of the system. If you think that the registry could be the cause of the freeze ups then the best thing to do is to run a full scan with a registry cleaner. More often than not the registry cleaner will identify the causes of the freeze ups, and if not completely remove them it will greatly reduce the appearance of the freeze ups on the system.
