Time Consuming Computer Problems

Not sure if I’ve fixed anything yet, but so far, I haven’t had problems running Firefox for the past 15 minutes.

Starting this morning, I noticed that Firefox kept hanging.  It repeatedly stopped responding, and I had to force it to close.  I got home tonight, and the same thing happened.  I ran a virus scan, nothing.  I ran a tune-up program and found 229 registry errors.  I fixed that, but still the same.  It still stopped responding.  I upgraded Firefox to the latest version.  Same thing.  I restarted Windows.  Still no change.  Finally, I went into control panel and fiddled with the settings in power options, changing the hard disk power down to 60 minutes.  That seems to have solved the problem…I hope.
