Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

How do I change the registered owner name on the computer as I purchased the computer from someone else. When I scan the computer I keep getting trojans and cookies, and worms picked up from stuff he went into and it never ends. I thought If I could change the name on the registration perhaps this will solve the problem as I cannot find anything in the programs with his name on.

I would reformat the PC and reinstall the Windows. This way you don't have to mess with that the previous owner's data and it will remove all the Viruses,Trojans and Spyware. And you can put in in your name.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Setup receipt watermark on casio tk-1550


If you removed the batteries and lost all of the other programming but the old receipt message is still there, then someone has programmed a bitmap logo into the non volatile flash memory. You should take it to a dealer and get them to flash the logo back out and ask them to change it to a normal text logo so you can program it yourself.
If anyone needs more information, the manuals are here:

Tip

Computer Maintenance


You may not realize it, but your computer and your car have something in common: they both need regular maintenance. No, you don't need to change your computer's oil. But you should be updating your software, keeping your antivirus subscription up to date, and checking for spyware. Read on to learn what you can do to help improve your computer's security.

Getting started

Here are some basics maintenance tasks you can do today to start improving your computer's security. Be sure you make these part of your ongoing maintenance as well.

* Sign up for software update e-mail notices. Many software companies will send you e-mail whenever a software update is available. This is particularly important for your operating system, your antivirus program, and your firewall.

* Register your software. If you still have send them in. And be sure to register new software in the future. This is another way for the software manufacturer to alert you when new updates are available.

* Install software updates immediately. When you get an update notice, download the update immediately and install it. (Remember, downloading and installing are two separate tasks.)

An ounce of prevention

A few simple steps will help you keep your files safe and clean.

* Step 1: Update your software
* Step 2: Backup your files
* Step 3: Use antivirus software and keep it updated
* Step 4: Change your passwords

Developing ongoing maintenance practices

Now that you've done some ground work,, it's time to start moving into longer term maintenance tasks. These are all tasks that you should do today (or as soon as possible) to get started. But for best results, make these a part of a regular maintenance schedule. We recommend setting aside time each week to help your computer secure.

* Back up your files. Backing up your files simply means creating a copy of your computer files that you can use in the even the originals are lost. (Accidents can happen.) To learn more read our tips for backing up information.

* Scan your files with up to date antivirus software. Use your antivirus scan tool viruses and worms. Also, check your antivirus program's user manual to see if you can schedule an automatic scan of your computer. To learn more, read our tips for reducing your virus risk.

* Change your passwords. Using the same password increases the odds that someone else will discover it. Change all of your passwords regularly (we recommend monthly) to reduce your risk. Also, choose your passwords carefully. To learn more, read our tips for creating stronger passwords.

Making a schedule

One of the best ways to help protect your computer is to perform maintenance regularly. To help you keep track, we suggest making a regular "appointment" with your computer. Treat it like you would any other appointment. Record it in your datebook or online calendar, and if you cannot make it, reschedule. Remember, you are not only helping to improve your computer, you are also helping to protect your persoanl information.

Good luck!

Change your hotmail password immediately, someone else has access to your account. Run a full virus-scan of your computer with Microsoft Security Essentials or AVG Free - keep running scans until it comes up zero.

How do I get my rebate form for a Mouse that I just purchased?


Follow the steps given on the rebate forms. Sometimes stores will have a place where they keep rebates or they may be at the register, just ask. Make copies of everything in case you have to follow-up with the company. If you download a rebate form, be sure to keep a copy on the computer. I make it a habit of scanning my rebate forms, upc, and sales receipts in case I have to email them.

Personally, I have probably used at least 50 rebates. I have had about 5 denied, and about 8 where I had to follow up. As a suggestion, before you purchase something on a rebate, either make sure they are a legit, name brand company (you can get better resolution on any issues) and/or research on the net to make sure that other folks aren't having rebate issues. You definitely take a risk when making purchases on a rebate.
