Follow these guidelines: WebRepOverall ratingThis site has no rating(not enough votes)
  • Scan your computer with an antivirus
  • Apply De-fragmentation on your system
  • Run disc clean up
  • Fix registry errors
  • Delete all temporary files:

Click Start - Run, type in %temp% and then click OK.
Once that temp folder is opened delete EVERYTHING that's inside it.

It Could be because your laptop is infected with Virus . Due to Virus your Explorer.exe File was corrupted. If now computer is all right after restoring then I'll suggest you to use Good Antivirus Program and regular update it and Scan your Window Regularly.

Computer can not connect to wireless modem ("Valet),has been running fine for 4-5 months. Ran network diagnostice "Windows has detected connection problem....."

If you are facing the connection problem, you need to do the following step.
Open Command Prompt, type ipconfig/release, after few seconds type ipconfig/renew. This will assign a new IP. Now you try to connect. If still facing the issue means you need to download and install a new wireless driver that is suitable for your operating system.

Please let me know once you check this.

Compaq Presario V2000 PC Notebook: computer is slow...

try the following

1. click on start -> then choose run -> in the run window type temp and hit enter. A new window would come up. Select everything on the window and delete it.

2. click on start -> then choose run -> in the run window type %temp% and hit enter. A new window would come up. Select everything on the window and delete it.

3. click on start -> then choose run -> in the run window type prefetch and hit enter. A new window would come up. Select everything on the window and delete it.

4. You can also Uninstall apps that you don't use anymore. This can be done by going into the control panel and select Add/Remove Prorams. Scroll through and delete apps you no longer use. 5. Restart the machine.

I am sure that this would resolve the issue. In case it does not try this

click on start -> then choose run -> in the run window type prefetch and hit enter. A new window would come up. Select the tab Startup, and click the button Disable all. Click apply and then OK and restart your coputer.

This should help. in case not click start -> Accessiories -> system tools -> Disk Defagment

In case that also does not works, scan your computer for some viruses.
You may also look at the option of increasing the RAM / Memory on your computer
This should help
