Dell inspiron cannot download programme


Do you have another anti-virus running? If so disable it and try again. Most Anti-Virus programs think other anti-virus programs are viruses.

Personally I have never used anything but AVG. Have not had any virus problems with it. After 10years of using the free version, I bought it for all the comps in house.

Help...my one yr. old pushed buttons and brought up the menu...my four yr. old thought the way to get that off the screen was to turn the tv off and back on. well, he turned it off, but it won't come back...


If you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, I think you will be pleasantly surprised as usually one is able to download, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, list of Dealers for spare part supplies as required.

Just Google the manufacturer's name and follow the links. Make certain you are directed to the manufacturer's web site as some search engines direct you to other sites and they charge for the information that is normally free of charge.

I hope this helps.

Use the windows home network setup utility and create a home network. You will have to tell windows to share the files on the computer providing the source material. Both computers would have to have wireless capabilities in order for this to work as well.
