try to run your computer with your Antivirus disabled temporarily
>if it runs faster then it is an issue with your anti virus but there only is a slim chance that this a security issue, but it's worth trying it.

if system is still slow:

>click on Delete Files check the box that says DELETE ALL OFFLINE CONTENT and Delete Cookies under General tab
>Go to Advanced tab click on Restore default Settings or Restore Advanced Settings
>click Apply

>if this doesn't work,do a Disk Cleanup,Disk Defragmenter, or System Restore follow these steps:
>click on START
>click ALL PROGRAMS
>click ACCESSORIES
>click SYSTEM TOOLS
>click Disk Cleanup / Disk Defragmenter / System Restore
(these 3 tools are all on the same folder)
*****System Restore will be the last resort. this sets your computer back to the date when you know your computer was working perfectly fine.

{HELP!!}} Inadvertently removed midi sound


Hi,

A simple fix here. Perform a system restore.

There are a couple of way to do this: Click on the start menu and then click on run, in the box type rstrui.exe and press enter. Or you should find system restore in All programs, accessories, system tools and system restore should be there.

Once you have the system restore window up click on restore my computer to an earlier time and take the computer back to a time before you deleted/uninstalled the programs.




Good luck.
