HOUSTON, TEXAS -- Our old (dell) computer was down (it was six years old), so we saved up 400 bucks to get a new one $398 Emachine computer from Walmart, we were hoping it works as a new computer supposed to be. It turns out super slow, frozen all the time, the screen black out in two weeks! we are so upsad and disappointed. We won't buy any product from this brand again!

There might be hope. These machines (and most others) come pre-loaded with bloatware. Most of this garbage just slows down the machine.
There are free programs available (like PC Decrapifier) that identifies this garbage and helps you to get rid of it. You may find that you have a sweet new machine after all.

I have an EMachines computer from wal mart, paid about the same price, I think...its an E-725. Mine works fine. The only problem I had was the battery barely holds a charge any more after a year, and sometimes have problems with the plug not staying in.

Good advice about using PC Decrapifier. Use it. Part of the problem may be your internet provider, not the machine. I had one of these and tho cheap, they do work ok for some things, as long as it is not cpu-intensive, like game playing, video streaming, etc. Also, I hope you have a good anti-virus program running, like the free Avast in case you have already picked up some bad malware, virus, etc. Sometimes, you get what you pay for and not sure what you expect out of a $400 machine.

You have to keep your expectations realistic when dealing with a $400 E-Machine. E-Machines are cheap for a reason. They aren't fast, and they generally aren't well made.

Have you tried restoring the unit to it's factory state and then removing the bloatware that inevitably comes on commercial PCs?
