When switched on my pc it will display error messaga . That is "error 912 the machine cover has been removed since last system is start up"


This error is displayed if chassis intrusion protection is enabled and the cover is removed.
But as I remember you can bypass this message and start the computer. I don't remember the key, but try Escape or Enter key. (I think the button to skip this error is displayed below the message).
You can also go to BIOS and disabled Chassis intrusion detection.

Running slow pop ups all the time


You more than likely have an infection. The problem is, removing an infection is a lot easier said than done. While your computer is running, so is the virus. And it would be like attempting to delete a picture, while you're looking at the picture. The computer will yell at you and tell you the file is in use. There are tons of guides on the internet as to how to easily remove a virus, but I will give you the short of it. If you don't have any antivirus active protection; Microsoft Security Essentials is free and pretty good. Download and install that. MalwareBytes and Spybot S&D (Search and destroy) are both fantastic at virus removal, but don't have active protection.
Download the three of these, install them, then restart your computer. As it is turning on, press F8 and then navigate to Safe Mode. Run all three scanners (not at the same time, and you might have to restart in between) and your computer should be much better off if this was the case. If this doesn't do much for your situation, at least you now have active antivirus protection.
Lastly you need to be VERY careful about the popups. Many of them advertise that your computer is infected and to buy "their" antivirus software. The problem is, that software is a scam and you will lose your money. And remember when you have big issues like running slow with popups all the time, you can always take it to a local tech shop if you're not comfortable with doing the work yourself. However this kind of repair can cost up to about $200.

You need to contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP) and they should be able to give you the password that was set up on that Outlook account when you set up your email.
Your ISP can walk you through the entire process.

I WANT TO DELETED ALL SPAM THET I GET EVERYDAY


  • Complain to your ISP. If you receive an unrequested and unwanted message, forward it to your ISP. (Your ISP, such as BT Internet or a local operation, provides you Internet access and service.) Ask your access provider to block incoming mail from that address and to complain on your behalf.
  • Use an online blocking service. Check to see what filtering options your access provider or email service may provide to subscribers. America Online, for example, has a preferred mail option (keyword = preferred mail) to protect a user’s account from receiving email from known junk emailers. iVillage also has some filtering services in its email programme. Secondly, look at free online services such as Bright Light Technologies, with screens mail before your read it and promises to eliminate up to 90 per cent of spam without eradicating wanted email.

  • Install a filtering programme. There are dozens on the market. Two that we like are Spambuster, a shareware programme, or PC Spamkiller which has one of the highest ratings on the market.

  • Forward offenders’ names to websites committed to stamping out spam. Two examples are, the Blacklist of Internet Advertisers and SpamCop. Both are US sites, but then the States has a bigger problem with spam than the UK and Europe.
  • Complain to your ISP. To do this first you’ll need to make sure you have the right domain name (whatever follows the @ sign, such as @ivillage.com), since spammers often disguise their domains so nice people like you can’t find them to complain.
  • Visit the SpamCop site’s FAQ for tips on how to find domain names. Once you have the right domain, send complaints to the following standardised address: abuse@ (their domain); postmaster@ (their domain); root@ (their domain); admin@ (their domain).

    I am trying to have Outlook for my email. I can receive my email in Outlook but cannot "send". I'm not sure what I am doing wrong. Help. Laura


    Outgoing Mail Server = smtp

    Incoming Mail Server = pop

    go into the settings and make sure that your incoming mail server says pop
    for example
    Incoming Mail Server = pop.ntlworld.com (after pop you type your ISP server address )

    hope this helps
