It may well be some form of virus or spyware.

It may also be that you have too many applications running at once eg. lots of toolbars and instant message typ programs.

It can also happen on graphic intensive applications.

You should rule out nasty stuff first.


for a free one its pretty darned good !

From a CLEAN computer download and put on a flash drive.

Copy to your DESKTOP on the suspec computer.

Run it but dont change any options just use what it offers.

When its done let it clean anything it finds.

Its where I always start with an infected machine.

As for antivirus AVOID Norton or Mcafee but try the AVG FREE version MBAM should clean up without buying

Only continued use would require purchase As for too many applications that would be up to you to decide what you REALLY need and dont. Most toolbars are a waste of both time and space and can hog computers down. Maybe a good clean up is in order ?

It may just be a "leaking application"

These are badly coded programs that dont release memory when they should and just keep taking more to do the same job.

May I suggest you download

It is a program that can make a report on what you have running in such a way that you can post that information to certain sites and experts there will look at it.

They will then give you reccomendations as to how you can remove programs or fix some issues that may be upsetting your computer.

Dont post the log here but follow the nstructions and help the program offers to send it to one of the sites it will offer you.

If you understand startup lists you may even be able to spot som things yourself that you dont want to run and disable them from hijack this.

I have already described my problem, can you supply a beginers guide or not ?

I have not seen your question beginners guide to what it might be english beginners is spelt with two N's.
Whether you're learning how to use a computer for the first time, understanding computer basics is more of a necessity than ever.
Computers are used in just about every facet of our lives, from business to personal communications.

If you've have limited or no experience with computers you may feel intimidated.
Computers have evolved to the point that they are much more user-friendly than they were 15 years ago. An absolute beginner's guide to computer basics is all you need to get started.
Power On and Off Your computer should be plugged into a power strip to ensure safety.
Before powering on, make sure the power strip is on.

Next, push the main power button on the computer.
You'll know that it is powering on because you will see the hard drive activity light flashing and flickering.

The operating system will come up on the screen, or you may be asked to strike a key in order to activate the operating system.


As the operating system has loaded, you will notice information about your operating system.
For instance if you are using a personal computer, the operating system might be Windows XP or Windows Vista.

Once the operating system is up, you may notice one or more small icons.
Familiarize yourself with the icons on this screen.
Getting Online

You are probably most interested in learning how to access the Internet.
You may notice that one of the icons on your computer screen is a lower case "e" with a ring around it.

This is Internet Explorer; or the icon may be a globe with a small fox, which is the Mozilla Fire Fox.

You can access the Internet using either of these browsers by double clicking the respective icon.
If these icons are not on your screen, take your mouse to the lower left hand of the screen where you see the word "Start."

Click there, search for the previously mentioned icons on the list, and click to go online.

Search Engine Basics

When you need to find information, you can type a subject into a search engine such as Google, Yahoo! Or MSN to get what you need. If you are searching for a car, the nearest pharmacy or anything else, type your description of the searched item in the search engine box and hit "Enter" to get a listing of related results.

Virus and Spyware Protection

Going online can put your computer at risk of identity theft, password theft, theft of private files, or at the mercy of spyware and viruses.
Viruses can delete or corrupt important files.

A Trojan virus can allow a hacker access to all of your most valuable information including passwords, bank and credit card account numbers and other important information.

Make sure to do weekly spyware and virus scans to keep your computer and personal information safe.

I recently got a Samsung galaxy 551. I received a voicemail today and I do not know how to listen to it. Please help.

To access your Voicemail please follow these directions. This will get you to your message and provide you easy access to it in the future.

  • Start at your home screen, tap the square with four little squares inside,
  • Scroll left or right through the appliactions and find one that says "Voicemail" (it should look like a green talk/speech bubble with a phone in it).
  • Press and hold the icon for Voicemail, drag the icon to the location you want. You can move an application icon to another main menu screen. You can also move most-used applications next to Home. And then press save!*
  • Tap the Voicemail icon and your message will be on the top screen.
Now you should be able to check your Voicemail at any time and know how to place an icon for convenience.

Hope this helped!

BlackBerry Calls N' Messaging Problems

are you using an unlocked bold?
it appears you have a corrupt software and you will probably need to reinstall the software.

here is a procedure I found on the Blackberry forum that will possibly help you.
You will need the Blackberry Desktop Software installed on your computer before attempting this.


The following error is displayed on the BlackBerry device:
net_rim_bb_phone_app killed due to message queue overflow


This issue may be caused by call logs or BlackBerry device software.


To resolve this issue, do the following:

Task 1: Clear Phone Call Logs
  1. In BlackBerry Desktop Manager on the computer, double-click the Back Up and Restore icon.
  2. In the Back Up and Restore window, click Advanced. The BlackBerry device database information will populate the right hand side of the window.
  3. Scroll down through the list and highlight Phone Call Logs, and select Clear. Note: If you are unable to clear Phone Call Logs, delete the Desktop [SYNC] service book on the BlackBerry device. This can be performed on the BlackBerry device by selecting Options >Advanced Options >Service Book and clicking Delete.
  4. Once the Phone Call Logs database has been cleared, disconnect the BlackBerry device from the computer, and then re-connect it to obtain a new Desktop[SYNC] service book.
If this does not resolve the issue, proceed to Task 2.

Task 2

Create a full back up of the BlackBerry device and run Application Loader in the BlackBerry Desktop Manager to erase all data and applications from the BlackBerry device. Refer to KB02318 for these steps. Once Application Loader has completed, perform a syncronization or advanced restore to restore the data to the BlackBerry device. To do this, double-click on either the Synchronize or Backup and Restore icons, and follow the on-screen instructions.

I've never used Google Chrome but believe if you uninstall Yahoo Messenger. Then re-download and reinstall it(Yahoo Messenger) that it should remedy your problem since Google Chrome is now removed.
