Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet

My PC is acting like Tortoise Very very slow.

Most of the time while we use our pc/laptops they seem to be quite slow and it occurs to our mind that why I invested so much money for the latest configuration when I was about to get such slow speed. Mostly this occurs with the people having very less time and very less knowledge about computers. That leads them to handover their personal computer in the hands of an unknown character. which could very well break the term personal computer. Hence, for those I'm just providing a small not very big thing so that they can do this on their own. Most of the time around 90% viruses who eat up your memory work through explorer and killing explorer once kills the virus also just for that session. I'd reiterate for that session only once you've restarted your pc you will have to redo the process. It's indeed very simple and easy for even a kid who knows how to read can do it. If these slowdowns are recent and you don't wish to mess up with deeper things then a simple few keystrokes on start-up could help you out.

On start-up once your background comes (not all your desktop icons) simply hit Ctrl + Alt + Del

Click on processes and then right click on explorer.

Now Click end process tree.

Wait for few seconds (this might depend on the age and capacity of your computer).

Now click on the first tab of the only open window i.e. task-manager and at the bottom click the button new task.

In the new task button type explorer and click the "OK" button.
Now check the speed of you PC/laptop.

You will have to do it on every start-up so as I said its only for those who don't want to mess with things or are unsure about what they are doing.

In case you really want to automate this thing then kindly show your support by voting and I will provide the automation right here.

Are there risks to investing in annuities?

There many risks in any sort of investment. Annuities are not immune to these risks, like say the bank you have you annuity with goes bankrupt the investment is not FDIC insured therefore it is very important that you make sure that the bank you're investing with is refutable. Check the fine print! Look out for a surrender charge some fixed annuities can charge you should you withdraw money before it matures and can be high charges reducing the amount that you will receive after retirement. There can also be age restrictions like giving you a tax penalty should you withdraw the money before the age of 59. Keep in mind that immediate annuities don't change their interest rates with the economy so you can't guarantee to always have a great interest rate.

Plz plz help help problem with dell inspiron1564 corI3 becom so slow when installing xp

This problem may be due hardware compatiblity. If you have installed windows Xp and its still running slow then its better to download and install the latest drivers that control you system.

I would suggest to use a driver scanning tool to download and install the latest drivers. you can get one here: http://www.DriverScanner2013.net

Sometimes such problems occurs due to corrupt windows installaion files. So try to change windows disc.

It is best to take computer to a computer shop to have cmos battery replaced because the computer has to be disassemled to access motherboard.

If the main battery has never been replace most likely its bad most laptop batteries have short lives.

on the otherhand with expense in mind you may want to price a new laptop from walmart they start arond 499.00 brand new
