Memory has nothing to do with drive capacity.
If your drive is not full, no worries. Great.
If you are low on memory, you can do two things:

a) buy more memory for your pc.
b) download Mike Linn's Start-Up CPL applet (free)-
-1 install it in the system32 folder
-2 open your control panel
-3 double click the new Start-Up applet
-4 examine all the start-up entries
-5 disable every unnecessary start-up item by unchecking boxes next to them
-most of these entries will be unnecessary, such as quick time, real media, any IM client, etc.
you can launch those programs when you want to use them. it is unnecessary for them to start with your pc and this will free up available system memory.

you do NOT need to format your drive.
you do NOT have a drive space problem
you have inadequate system memory.

How do I remove errors and viruses without paying hundreds of dollars?


If the computers infected the virus may load into memory at boot and will also be in the restore files. If you can get someone to download the Kaspersky's rescue disk (free) and burn it to disk. On your computer go into the BIOS at start up - Press F2 (or F11 or delete) when you power on & keep pressed until you see entering setup. - Find the entry for start up devices and make sure the first device is your CD, then save and exit. Put the Kaspersky disk in and start the computer. There are instructions on how to use the disk on the Kaspersky's site. This will start in Linux and remove viruses and malware before windows starts. Then open the control panel, open system and turn off system restore. If you havn't got an antivirus there are plenty of good free ones, Avast or AVG are OK and download a free anti malware like super antispyware. Run a full scan with both. You will have spent nothing and few viruses could survive this.

Runing slow, some time not responsive.


Below are some useful tips for making your PC's performance better.Please follow the below steps and fix your problem.
Eliminate Viruses and Spyware 1 . Run your antivirus program. There may be something slowing your computer that you can remove. It is a good idea to run your antivirus program every week.
2 . Remove spyware. Run a good spyware tool at least twice a month.
3 . Use a pop-up blocker, if you have one. Check your antivirus program.
Dispose of the Extras 1 . Delete your document files for anything you no longer need. Saved pictures, audio and video files in particular can slow your computer.
2 . Remove unwanted programs from the Control Panel area. Old toolbars or games the kids downloaded off the Internet are a good place to start.Look for software you no longer use, such as the old printer you threw out last year.
3 . Clean out your email. Old messages are a constant drain on your computer's resources. Go through every folder, deleting everything you do not need. Leave no mail! Finish by emptying the Deleted Items folder.
4 . Turn off unnecessary programs. Check your task bar for icons that show running programs. Disable anything you are not currently using.
Run Maintenance 1 . Run the Disk Cleanup tool located in your Control Panel. (Windows only. For other operating systems, please check the Resources section below.)This will remove temporary files, cookies and unnecessary components to speed up your computer.
2 . Defragment your computer. Defragging takes some time, but will speed your computer significantly. You can find the tool in your Control Panel.Run it monthly.

Hope the above information will be helpful to you. Thanks for using Fixya.

Download, install and run the free version of malwarebytes from here.

It will automatically update during install, make sure you do a full scan.

Remve anything it finds.

Also do a free online scan form here.

http://housecall.trendmicro.com/uk/

You can do it while malwarebytes is running.

If you are still having problems after this then download hijackthis from here

Run, save the log file and email it to me at pippincp@msn.com and I'll sort out manual removal instructions for you.

If Kaspersky is not working you may have to reinstall it..

How do i flash bios on my 2400 Dell Dimension


Your sister has a vivid imagination. Changing the memory and flashing the BIOS will chane nothing.

If you want to start from scrath then reformat the hard drive and reinstall the system but as you probably don't have a system backup disc this will prove impossible for you.

Your best bet is take it to your local PC shop (I don't mean the mainstream ones) and they will be able to restore your system.

You've learned a valuble lesson the hard way here. Always have a good antivirus programme installed, make sure it is up to date and do a full scan on a regular basis.

Computer is very slow.


McAfee virus software is a memory hog. You need to add more memory to your pc. It uses pc3200 memory. This computer has a memory capacity of 4gigabytes. The memory slots are numbered this way......starting from the memory slot closest to the processor>
one, three, two, four. 1 and 2 work together, 3 and 4 work together. So if you buy just 2 gigabytes......put them in 1 and 2. This will help. Sounds like the virus software is doing a full system scan....you could do a "quick"scan and do a "full" scan once a week....

I have an ACER ASPIRE 5720 laptop - it is less than a year old and it is showing the memory is full - the memory is meant to be 32 GB and from what I can see from the programme menus there is less than 4...


Hi j0shuatsb,
Acer like many other manufactures seem to design their system to fail or have issues just after their 1 year warranty is up. Like other Microsoft windows operating systems, when you receive an error message that you're memory is full. This does not mean you have run out of RAM = memory. You're notebook can only run a max of 4GB of memory. The error message refers to hard disk drive space. Depending on you're operating system, windows will lock out so much drive space so it can move about. All notebooks also have a hidden partition which holds drivers & programs used in combination for running the system restore.
This hidden partition can range in size from 2GB up to 4GB.
This also lessens you're total hard disk drive space. Bottom line is there is nothing wrong with your memory.
What you need is a larger hard disk drive. Notice the Technical specifications from this link:
http://www.acer.co.uk/public/page9.do?sp=page4&dau34.oid=24360&UserCtxParam=0&GroupCtxParam=0&dctx1=17&CountryISOCtxParam=UK&LanguageISOCtxParam=en&ctx3=-1&ctx4=United+Kingdom&crc=512458878
It does not show what size you're SATA hard disk drive is.
Since you are still in warranty, now would be the time to increase you're drive size. On another note, if you're HDD is the standard 160GB than there is an issue with your current HDD.
Please run a full system virus scan.
Suggest you back up all you're personal data on to a DVD & run you're system restore CD including a format to help you regain you're HDD full space. A temporary fix would be to uninstall any non needed programs through Add/Remove programs. This should free up some space. Many Acer programs you do not use at all or need should be the first to go.
