Hi there!

I am  going to tell you about one problem of my computer. After starting my computer then it is very good. But sometimes when I click on the mouse I introduce two problem:

1. Then mouse cursor cannot work perfectly.

2. Browser and start  bar  hang.

A text has been appear in the top bar: not responding?

As a solution then quickly I pressed Ctrl+Alt+Del. But it is the same and no change. Then must be restart my PC.

Can anyone tell me what is the correct solution?

Windows not responding problem fix


Can you remember installing anything on your computer before the problems started?  What version of Windows are you running?  Here's a couple of things you can try:

1.  Run System Restore to bring back your system to a state where it didn't have this problem.  Link for using system restore: 

2.  Run System File Checker.  Open a command prompt and type in "sfc /scannow" (without the quotes).  SFC will scan your system for any missing or corrupt system files and will fix those problems.  It might take a while though.

3.  Scan your hard drive for viruses.

4.  Scan your hard drive for bad sectors.

5.  Run a registry cleaner.

Hope this helps.

Boot your computer in safe mode. And inside the safe mode, run your command line interface or the CMD.EXE. On the command line interface or in the command prompt, type CHKDSK /F to schedule CHKDSK to run on the next start up. Exit from the command prompt then reboot your computer. This time, your computer will be scanned for possible errors. The CHKDSK will fix those corrupted windows files and libraries, including index and some bad sectors and clusters. Just wait for the CHKDSK to finish the task. After the system was finished checking the entire system, it will continue on booting in your windows operating system.

If the error persists after you have performed the CHKDSK, boot your computer once again in safe mode and scan your computer with anti-virus software to clean virus infection.

If your computer is not working properly like the mouse pointer doesn’t move properly and the web browser suddenly freezes and triggers a “not responding” error, try scanning your computer for possible virus infection. Download Sophos Virus Removal Tool and install it. Once installed, start Sophos then wait for the virus signature database to get updated. When updating is complete, click to scan your computer.

When a virus is found at the end of the scan, remove or delete it then repeat the scan over and over until it no longer detects a virus. Scanning may take some time to finish depending on the size of the drive and the amount of data. The tool scans everything on your computer including external devices connected via USB port. See if this works.

If this doesn’t work and the computer is still not working properly, try using the System File Checker utility. Press the Windows key + R to bring up the “Run” dialog then type without quotes “cmd” then hit Enter. In the command prompt window, type without quotes “sfc /scannow” then hit Enter. Insert your Windows setup CD or DVD in your optical drive when you are prompted then continue.

Wait until the process is complete. When it is finished, close the command prompt then restart the computer. See if this works. If the problem continues, you need to reinstall the operating system.
