How to disable/enable Microsoft Windows startup programs


In this guide I will show you how to enable or disable startup programs in Microsoft Windows. Disabling startup programs can help your computer boot up faster and remove some of that garbage that clusters your desktop when you first boot up your computer.

In Windows go to Start and click Run. In the Run box type "msconfig". You will now get a new window that opens up like below,

Click the "Startup" tab. In this tab you will get a list of programs that will launch when Windows starts up. The more programs that start up, the slower your machine will be. You can speed up your computer boot process by disabling unnecessary programs. To disable a program, uncheck the box next to the program you wish to not startup. Some examples of unnecessary programs are Itunes, Google Talk, Skype, software updater programs or any other programs that you don't wish to be started when Windows opens.

Alternatively, you can enable certain programs to startup when Windows boots. Just check the box next to the program you wish to startup.

Make sure to hit the "apply" button once you are done!

I hope this article was informative.

Regards,
G33k

Hi

First thing to try is to down load the latest drivers for your LAN card, problems like this appear when windows has downloaded a update which is not fully compatible with your hardware driver.

How to enabled microsoft vm?


Hey there, first check to make sure that you have it. Click start, run. Type "wjview" and press enter. The top line shows the version. If you get an error, you don't have Microsoft's Virtual Machine.

To enable click start, settings, control panel. Click Internet Options. Under the Advanced tab, find the "Java (Sun)" heading. Check the Box underneath to Enable, Remove the check to disable. Close all Internet Explorer windows to make it have effect.
Microsoft will automatically disable/enable at the same time
let me know if you need anything else

AVG will no install error 0x800736b1 also retrirve my desktop


Hi there. My name is Alex and Im here to help solve your problem

First of all, AVG has always had a problem installing when windows updates are enabled and download and install automatically. I would recommend uninstalling all updates that have been installed to your computer and disable automatic updates which I will explain to you below

To uninstall the updates.
Click start, settings and click control panel.
On the icon add and remove programs, please double click
You will now see all the programs and updates installed on your computer. The microsoft updates are located near to the bottom of the list and there may be a lot of them installed. You can only uninstall one update at a time. You may be prompted that uninstalling a windows update may cause a program not to work properly, this is normal so you can continue uninstalling them. When you have uninstalled these updates please restart your computer.

To disable the automatic updates

Right click on your icon My computer or My pc which is located on the desktop or on the start menu (if you are running windows xp) and select properties
You will then see a sub menu called 'Automatic updates' and inside this menu you will have the choice to disable the updates

If you are using windows xp and you have system restore enabled on your computer, then you will be able to take the computer back to an earlier time when it was working correctly. Please save all documents first to insure that nothing will be lost if you decide to do a 'system restore'. There is a very friendly wizard to help you restore your computer. You can get to the system restore by clicking start, programs, accesories, system tools and selecting system restore.

Regarding your problem about your desktop disappearing, to restore your icons on the desktop, right click anywhere on the desktop and select organise icons and be sure that the heading 'show desktop icons' is ticked. This will restore your desktop items

Last of all try installing AVG, if you still experience problems with this issue, then please let me know. Im happy to help

Windows update not working and system restore cannot be enable


Try going to the CP - Add/remove programs... updates. Remove the up date.
Go to microsoft and there should be two other updates to install first. microsoft reports people having trouble with this update without the other two updates first.
