If you're trying to open a program installed on another computer, you can't do that ...not through standard network/file sharing.

The program is installed on the other machine, which means that the installation wrote to the system registry and needs those registry settings to run, which are not set on your "primary" computer.

You can either download and install the program to the "primary" computer, or setup remote desktop to access the other computer, and run the program that way.

Hope this helps :)

Whats the best way to transfer my infomation and programs to a newer computer


For content, if you don't want to transfer it all to a flash drive and then transfer it to the new machine, register for an account at any (or all, your choice) of the following sites:
Dropbox (2GB free)
https://drive.google.com/ (15GB free)
Welcome to OneDrive (15-23GB free)
Once the programs of your choice are downloaded and installed, use them to back up your personal files to the internet. Then, on the new computer, install the programs and allow them to sync. This will download them from the internet. Move the files out of the folders to free up space, wait for the removal to sync to the old computer, and go back to the old computer to move more in to be moved over. Repeat this as much as needed to have all of your files moved over.
For programs, transfer any installation files you still have (the program you download and then click to install) through the cloud storage programs from above that you choose, then use these .exe files to install to the new laptop. If you don't have the .exe files lying around, then you can either hunt them down individually on the new computer (in which case, make a list from your old computer) or use a service like
Ninite Install or Update Multiple Apps at Once (it's free, by the way) to mass download/install most common programs so that you don't have to go hunting for them.
For programs that were installed via disc, you're probably just going to have to install those on the new machine the old fashioned way. You cannot just copy/paste program folders (though it's tempting) because installing programs writes values to your computer's registry, which cannot be transferred and certainly don't tag along with the program files installed on the computer. These registry values are what tell the computer how to handle that installation, so while some programs MIGHT work, most will not work well or at all without.
Hope this helped!

Tips to clean and speed up your computer.


Hello,

If you wish to speed up your computer or just give it a good cleaning, you have come to the right place! Follow the tips below and your computer should perform better.

CCleaner is a program I have used for years, and it is an amazing tool. It offers the ability for you to clean out old temporary files, browser cookies, remove unwanted programs, fix registry errors, disable start up programs and even manage system restore points.

Click here to download the program

-Install and open up CCleaner. On the left, you will notice 4 options. The first(top option) is cleaner. We will make sure we are on this tab and click the "analyze" button near the bottom middle. Let the program analyze and once it is done click the "run cleaner option"

*Editing registry information can potentially be dangerous and I always advise to backup the registry before deleting anything from it*

When you install and remove programs, you can leave behind junk that over time can cause problems for your computer. We will clean up the registry now.

-Next, we will run the Registry analysis to see if anything can be fixed. Click on the registry tab on the left of CCleaner and then click the "Scan for issues" button. Once this is done, go ahead and click the "Fix selected Issues" button.

Over time, your computer can accumulate many programs that will start up when windows reboots causing the reboot process to be extremely slow. Some of these programs are non essential and can be disabled from start up. The next step we will disable any unwanted start up programs.

*Disabling essential programs from start up may cause computer issues. Only disable programs that are not needed to be running when the computer starts up. Some examples are Itunes, Windows Media Player, Adobe update*

-Click on the "tools" option on the left of CCleaner. Then click on the startup tab. Expand the CCleaner window to maximize so you get a good view. You do this by clicking the box icon at the top right of CCleaner. In the middle window, CCleaner will list all programs that will start when your computer is turned on. You can go through each program and disable any that you see fit. I gave some examples above of programs you can disable. This can increase your start up time!

Now we can close CCleaner.

-In this step we will run the built in Windows disk cleaner and disk defragmenter to finish our clean up job. In windows 7 you can access these tools by going to Start and in the search box type Disk. The two top options should be Disk Cleaner and Disk Defrag.

Click on Disk cleanup and a program will run, and calculate files to be deleted and how much space you can save. CCleaner will have already cleaned up much of this junk but go ahead and select the options you wish to remove and click the OK button.

Next, run the Disk defrag tool. This tool will show you if your disk is badly fragmented and if so, run the program. It is best to do this overnight while you are sleeping as it can take up computer resources.


Other Tips
A new tool I have started to use is TuneUp Utilities. The 2011 version is very good and is easy to use. You can download it by clicking here. You can use it to basically do anything from disabling start up programs, defragging your hard drive, changing Windows settings and even changing your Windows Login screen. It will guide you through optimizing your computer.

Okay, your computer should be all clean and run a bit faster now. I hope you enjoyed this Tip!

Regards,
G33k

test this steps and fix it. God bless you
1. The Mouse o There are two examples of a computer freezing up. One is when a single program on the computer is frozen, while the other is when the entire system freezes up. To determine which type of problem a computer is experiencing, attempt to move the mouse on the screen. If the mouse pointer is visible and moves, the issue is with a single program. To determine which program is frozen, bring up the Windows Task Manager. This can be done by right clicking a blank area of the taskbar and selecting "Task Manager," or by pressing the keyboard shortcut "Ctrl+Alt+Delete" and selecting "Task Manager". The program or programs that are frozen will show as "Not Responding" on the Applications tab of the Task Manager. Click the frozen program and click "End Task" to close it. Visit the program's website for specific troubleshooting tips if the program continues to freeze. If the mouse pointer is stationary on the computer screen, the entire system is frozen.
Unfreezing a Frozen Computer o If the entire system freezes up, it will need to be rebooted. To do so, hold down the "Ctrl" and "Alt" keys. While holding both keys down, press the "Delete" key twice. This should shut down the system and automatically restart it. If the computer does not respond, try the keyboard shortcut once more. If it remains frozen and does not reboot, you will need to perform a hard shut down. This simply means pressing and holding down the power button until the computer completely shuts down. Once it has shut down, leave it off for a few minutes and then turn the power on once more.
Continuous Freezing o A frozen computer might be a one-time occurrence, or it could be the sign of a more serious problem. If the computer continues to freeze up, there are several items that should be checked out. The first step to take is looking at any recently installed software. Programs such as freeware or shareware often contain malware that can damage the system. Even reputable software can contain a damaged file. Uninstall recently added programs and determine if that was the cause of the computer freezing up. To uninstall a program, go to the Control Panel from the Start Menu. Select "Add/Remove Programs" in Windows XP or earlier, or "Programs and Features" in Windows Vista. In the list of installed programs, select the one to be removed and click "Uninstall." Follow any prompts and restart the computer when the process is complete. Next, update and run both the antivirus program and spyware removal program installed on the computer, or use the link provided in resources. Check the Windows website and download any updates.
System Tools Finally, you will want to check the available space on the computer's hard drive and use the built-in error checking and cleaning tools. Go to "My Computer," right click "Local Disk (C:)" and click "Properties." On the "General" tab, make sure there is sufficient free space. The "Disk Cleanup" tool will free more space by deleting unnecessary files. Click the "Disk Cleanup" button to run the tool. On the "Tools" tab there are more tools that can solve the problems causing a computer to freeze up. The Error Checking Tool finds and corrects hard disk errors and the Defragmentation tool will reorganize system files, helping the computer run better.

Hp dx2200 computer won't power off


If your HP computer refuses to power down, this means that there are still programs open that Windows can't close. Normally when you select the "Shut Down" button from your "Start" menu, Windows closes all open programs, then closes itself, and your basic input/output system (BIOS) turns off all of your hardware. If Windows can't close all open programs, your computer won't be able to power off. This means that you must close these programs yourself.

Right-click on the window of an open program on your Windows taskbar (Bottom of Screen) Click "Close Window." Windows manually closes the program. If a window appears on-screen indicating that Windows cannot get the program to close, click the "Force Close" button in this window to have Windows force the program to shut down. Repeat "Step 1" for any additional programs that are open on your computer. Click "Start." Click "Shut Down." Hope this helps.

Some programs need a substantial amount of RAM and in case of computers with smaller RAM, they tend to freeze. Either close some of the running programs or increase the RAM capacity. In every likelihood it should work.

VirusResponse Lab 2009 on computer.


What this programs does:
VirusResponse Lab 2009 is an exact replica, other than the name, of the Zlob installed rogue called Antivirus Lab 2009. VirusResponse Lab is installed via malware that pretends to be a video codec required to watch videos online. Instead of doing what is advertised, the Zlob Trojan displays fake security alerts on your computer stating that your computer is infected and installs the VirusResponse Lab program. Once installed, the program will be configured to start automatically when your computer loads. Once started this program will scan your computer a list a variety of infections that cannot be removed unless you first purchase the software. These found infections, though, are all fake and are only being shown to scare you into purchasing the VirusResponse Lab 2009.
Another byproduct of having this software installed is that your computer will begin to run slower. This is because the program is always running in the background while using your computer's resources. VirusResponse Lab will also periodically display nag boxes stating that you are infected and that you should purchase the software. Getting out of these sequences of boxes trying to sell you the software can be irritating and time consuming.


This guide will walk you through removing the VirusResponseLab 2009 program and its associated malware for free.
