Download, Install and Run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware:
When Installing choose the non-pro version.

Download, Unzip, Install and Run TDSSKiller:

Download, Install and Run Super Anti-Spyware:

If you have an outdated Anti-virus program then Download, Install and Run Avira Anti-Virus:
Make sure to select ALL of the "threat categories" when you install or configure Avira...

You should be in pretty good shape if you run and install all of these programs.

Speeding Up Your Computer (Windows XP)

Note: these instructions are for Windows XP, however the procedure is very similar for both Vista and 7.

1. Limit the number of programs booting with your computer.
To do this click on the "Start" button, then choose "Run..." Type in msconfig then press enter. A new window will open called the "System Configuration Utility". Click on the "Startup" tab.
All of the programs that have a check in their box are set to boot with your computer. If you recognize any (like AIM or any other messengers) you should uncheck these boxes if you are okay not having them boot when your computer does. This will make the boot of your computer much faster. When you are done click "Okay" and then choose "Exit without restart". The next time you reboot your computer these settings will be applied.

2. Uninstall unnecessary programs.
Click on the "Start" button and then open the control panel. Open the "Add or Remove Programs" tool. Locate each of the programs you do not use, and choose uninstall. Some things you can uninstall are toolbars and games. If you no longer use them, and you still have the CD for the game then remove the program before you keep it. Keep in mind that you can remove programs while still keeping your personal files for most games, this is a good move if you want to reinstall the game eventually.

3. Download and install Windows Updates.
Click on the "Start" button and find the "Windows Update" option under programs. Choose express install and download and install all of the updates recommended for your computer. You will likely have to restart your computer at the end of this process. When your computer has restarted, repeat this update process. Repeat until there are no longer any updates recommended for your computer (this may take three or even four update cycles).

4. Increasing your Hard Drive's efficiency.
Open up "My Computer" and then right-click on "Local Disk C:" and choose "Properties". Choose the "Tools" tab. You are going to run both the Defragmenter as well as Check disk utilities from this same spot.
  • Check Disk
    Click on the "Check Now..." button to initiate the check disk. Check both of the boxes here and run the check disk with these options, you will need to restart in order to finish this operation.
  • Defragment
    Go back into the Local Disk tools and click on the button "Defragment Now..." First choose the analyze button to determine if you need to defragment your drive or not, if it is recommended run a defragment. This whole process of optimizing your hard drive may take quite a while (just let each process run overnight).

5. Adding additional RAM (if necessary).
If your computer is still running slowly you need to add additional RAM to your computer. You need to find out what kind of RAM your computer requires (DDR, DDR2, DDR3...) and you can easily install it yourself. You should always buy RAM online as it is far less expensive online than it is in stores like Best Buy.

In order to keep the speed of your computer up, you need to regularly run full-computer antivirus scans with frequently updated software. Viruses, malware, and general junkware have a habit of slowing down your computer. Try installing free antivirus software following this tip:
Also be sure to regularly run the disk defragmenter (every six months), check disk (once a year) and install windows updates (once a month).

Your computer will now run much faster and will increase its life span significantly.

An unexpected i/o error has occurred

Boot into Safe Mode and see if it will allow you to run a System Restore.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.If the check disk utility can't fix the problem you'll need to reinstall windows.

I have downgraded the OS of my Toshiba Satellite A205-S7468 from Windows Vista to Windows XP SP3. System is having trouble identifying the proper Audio Driver. On Windows Vista, the Audio Driver is...

You can try with an automatic driver tool, yes of course, it could be installed manually, but to avoid the hassles, you better opt for a driver utility.
Download and install this software (Device Doctor Free). Once it's installed, run the program and click "Begin Scan", wait for few seconds until the scan completes and search the scan result for realtek, if so click it, the direct download page will open up, download and install the driver, that should work without any more hassles.

If you have problem, let me know.
Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Averatec won't boot

To catch the fleeting screen hit the Pause/Break Button it will stop the scrolling. By keeping your finger close to the key you can Press Pause, Read a few lines, then Pause, a few more till you read the whole message.

You can reinstall an old version of the OS, or even insatll Linux (it is free), but I will not guarantee that your special program will run. But if you install Wine on you Linux you can run Windows programs in virtual mode. Warning if your special program is on the hard drive you will erase it when you install Linux.

Hote it helps.

IBM T-40 issues

When you download the T40 device drivers, they need to be the XP versions.
When you run the driver programs they will be unzipped/expanded to the hard drive in a folder c:\drivers. Then you need to open the various folders and run the setup programs to install the various drivers.
NOTE - The T40 series laptops come with various different manufacturers devices (eg. there are a few different wireless model LANs) and if one version driver doesn't work you need to install a different one. It is a bit of trial and error to find the right one.

Freezed (No turning off)

Hold down the power button until it shuts off. Give it a few seconds. That should square it away.
