Hi frcs68, There is a software called YOUR UNINSTALLER, It will uninstall any program you have on your computer, and if there are any remnants of earlier programs left on your computer that your Control Panel doesn't list, It will find them too. Good Luck.

Flashing BIOS via software




If you have access to the computer when it's turned on, you could try one of those programs that remove the password from the BIOS, by invalidating its memory.
However, it might happen you don't have one of those programs when you have access to the computer, so you'd better learn how to do manually what they do. You can reset the BIOS to its default values using the MS-DOS tool DEBUG (type DEBUG at the command prompt. You'd better do it in pure MS-DOS mode, not from a MS-DOS shell window in Windows). Once you are in the debug environment enter the following commands:
AMI/AWARD BIOS
O 70 17
O 71 17
Q
PHOENIX BIOS
O 70 FF
O 71 17
Q
GENERIC
Invalidates CMOS RAM.
Should work on all AT motherboards
(XT motherboards don't have CMOS)
O 70 2E
O 71 FF
Q
Note that the first letter is a "O" not the number "0". The numbers which follow are two bytes in hex format.

Winxp Applications Startup Time, Decrease your Applications startup time...


By default, Microsoft includes the /prefetch:1 switch to speed up it's Windows Media Player application start time. This switch can be used for other Windows applications and also many third party programs.

Example #1

You have AOL installed on the computer. Complete the steps outlined below to add the /prefetch:1 switch to AOL's Target path.

1. Right Click on the AOL shortcut and select properties from the menu.

2. In the Target: Field add the /prefetch:1 switch to the very end of the path, like this: "C:\Program Files\America Online 8.0\aol.exe" /prefetch:1 and then click ok.

Now start AOL. It would load at least 50 times faster than ever before.

Example #2

1. Go to the Start butoon/All Programs/Accessories/System Tools

2. Right Click on System Restore and select properties from the menu that appears. Add the /prefetch:1 to the Target Path entry so it look like this
%ystemRoot%\System32\restore\rstrui.exe /prefetch:1 and Click ok.

Now System Restore will start immediately when executed.

Note: This switch will only work with some programs. Others will return a message saying the programs. Others will return a message saying the program in the target box is invalid. Just remove the switch.

Good luck!

New computer dell inspiron 570 running windows 7-connected for 3 days. came back to use it this afternoon and the media player has lost it's sound and you can hardly hear the PC -the system tells me =media...


Microsoft Windows Media Player is a free media player software that comes with the personal computer version of Windows operating systems. The software supports basic file formats such as WMV, WMA, AVI, MP3, and ASF. The player included in Windows XP gives you the power to create your own CDs, search and organize digital media on your PC, and copy files to portable devices such as CDs and pen drives.
Fix Windows Media Player Problems
Corrupted and missing DLLs files, incorrect registry entries, and outdated files are some of the causes of Windows Media Player errors. Covered here are a few steps that you can take to fix common problems.
C00D11CD: Unknown Error
C00D11CD errors occur when an operating system component or some other program encounters an error and does not communicate it to Windows Media Player. Due to its generic nature and multiple reasons for occurrence, there is no specific solution to this problem.
If you encounter the error when trying to play an AVI or MPEG 2 file, then most likely, you do not have the correct codec version installed on your system. To fix a Windows Media Player problem related to codec, search for the required codec on the Internet, download it, and update it on your system to play the required file.
Windows Media Player uses Digital Rights Management (DRM) to authorize copying files to a CD or to download them from an online music store. If you do not have DRM authority to copy a particular song, you will not be able to play it and the error will pop up.
Windows Media Player uses the wmadmoe.dll file to encode files. If something goes wrong with this file, you may get the c00d11cd error when you try to copy songs from a CD to your hard disk. To fix a Windows Media Player problem in this situation, you must register the DLL file by running the command ‘regsvr32 wmadmoe.dll’.
80040155: Interface Not Registered
If this error occurs when you try to burn songs into a CD, then the most probable cause is that the required player files are no longer registered on your system. To fix this error, try to reinstall your Windows Media Player or download and install a newer version of the player, if available on the internet.
800C2EE2: Action timed out
This error occurs when your Windows Media Player is unable to connect to a server due to problem in the network, and therefore cannot play protected audio/video files that you download from an online music store. Incorrect Internet Explorer security settings might be the cause of this problem. To fix this, open Internet Explorer and select Tools-Internet Options-LAN Settings. Next, clear the Automatically detect settings check box.
C00D0FAA: Cannot rip the files
The error usually occurs when you try to rip CDs to MP3 format. Existence of entries from an earlier player version in the registry might be the reason behind this problem. One way to fix this problem is by adjusting the audio quality. However, if you want to maintain the audio quality, then to fix this Windows Media Player problem, open the Registry Editor by running the Regedit command and navigate to the subkey given below.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\Sett ings\MP3Encoding
Here, open ‘LowrateSample’ and delete the value displayed in the Value Data box. Select OK and exit Registry Editor.
Many times errors also occur when there are corrupt files on the system or there are invalid DLL entries and other related incorrect entries in the system registry. For this, you must try to download reliable registry cleaner software from the Internet and scan your registry for invalid entries. Using registry cleaner software, you can easily and efficiently fix Windows registry problems, and make your PC free from irritating errors.
Errors can occur in Windows Media Player due to outdated files, missing or corrupt DLL files and incorrect registry entries. Most of the time, you can fix Windows Media Player problems by updating missing files or by upgrading the player to a later version. Additionally, to prevent registry-related problems, you can use a registry cleaner software to regularly scan the registry and eliminate invalid DLL entries and corrupt values from it.

Computer running extremely slow


possiblity of a virus effect. try low level formatting on your system and then reinstalling the softwares again. Sometimes several programs installed on your system and been removed improperly also causes the system speed to slow down. You can also try removing their entries using the msconfig command at the run.

How to Clean Your Computer's Registry The Windows Registry is an enormous batch...


How to Clean Your Computer's Registry

The Windows Registry is an enormous batch of files containing information about almost everything that occurs on the computer, from a visit to a Web site to a program installation. The registry also contains information about drivers and other essential programs, like DLLs -- small helper programs that often work with more than one application. This information is stored in the form of "keys" that help programs run. It's like a big blueprint for where everything goes on your computer and how it all fits together. Only computers running Windows operating systems have registries, and despite rumors to the contrary, Windows 7 will have a registry.


A registry may have hundreds of thousands of entries, and new entries are created all the time. As it fills with information, the registry may cause a computer's performance to suffer. One problem is that Windows almost never removes registry entries, even if a program is uninstalled, as most uninstallers aren't able to effectively remove their own registry keys. And as files are moved around and programs are uninstalled, some registry keys point to programs or files that no longer exist or are located elsewhere.

Fortunately, these errors don't have to be tolerated. The registry can be cleaned up, though not completely. And for your troubles, you may get better performance and decreased boot time. Some satisfied users report fewer instances of lag or Windows hanging (when the computer isn't responding). The exact performance boost varies depending on the state of the registry and the effectiveness of the cleaner program employed. You may also free up disk space, although most registry entries are very small.

Registry cleaning is not without risks. This is a very sensitive area of your computer, and if you're happy with how your computer is running, don't go digging around. Trying to manually edit your registry can create errors in the registry that make it impossible to load Windows. Some registry-cleaning programs have been known to delete important registry keys or essential DLL files. And the performance improvements may be negligible, while running the program and approving each recommended deletion could take hours. In addition, reliable data on how registry cleaners affect performance are almost impossible to find. Most "performance tests" are actually produced by the developers of registry-cleaning tools.


Despite these concerns, it is­ possible to clean out some of the registry's gunk, and your computer may be better off for it. On the next page, we'll take a look at how to go about this delicate job.


Before you mess around with the registry, it's best to to create a backup copy of the registry and to also save any important data to an external hard drive or disk. Some registry-cleaning programs have a feature to back up a copy of your system's registry. If not, a simple Internet search should lead you to a free backup program.


Windows has a built-in program for editing the registry. It's creatively titled regedit.exe and can be accessed by going to the Start menu, clicking Run and typing in the program name. While this program is easy to access, it's difficult to use. Registry entries have long, oblique names that don't say much about what they represent. Even savvy computer users may have no idea what a particular entry points to. So unless you have specific instructions for how to alter or delete a clearly defined entry, it's best not to experiment with regedit.exe.

Third-party registry-cleaner programs are plentiful and remove a lot of the confusing grunt work of parsing and deleting registry entries. To find a program that suits you, check reviews on sites like ZDNet, CNET, PC World or PC Magazine. Some of these programs are free or only fix a few entries at a time, which can be quite laborious when a registry may have 2,000 broken entries. Others may cost $20 or more and may come as part of a package of system utilities.

It's not necessary to clean a registry more than once a month. Using a disk defrag program may provide additional performance boosts.

Before you run the program you've chosen, make sure you close all other open programs, as well as those running in the system tray, next to the clock in the bottom right corner of your screen. Follow directions closely: Most of these cleaner programs are intuitive, first scanning the registry for errors and then offering choices to fix broken entries, but you may miss an important step or warning if you click madly and try to speed through the process.

Some experts recommend against using programs that automatically delete registry errors [source: Bass]. Instead, it's better to approve deletions manually. The cleaner will likely offer a list of registry entries that it's safe to delete because they are certainly obsolete. It may also provide an option to "repair" an entry. Going deeper and deleting borderline entries could affect a program's ability to function, such as by deleting a DLL that the cleaner doesn't realize is shared by more than one program -- or you may irreparably damage your installation of Windows. When in doubt, let the entry stay.

And that's about it. Hopefully you managed to clean up a few hundred entries without bricking your computer. If not, well, then you probably can't read this anymore and won't be interested in the links on the next page about registry cleaners and other related topics.

Antivirxp08, is the name of virsus on my computer


The infection that you have are rogue antivirus programs that, when run, display false results as a tactic to scare you into purchasing the software. Older versions of XP Antivirus would create 9 entries in your Windows Registry that impersonate infections on your machine. In reality, though, these registry entries were harmless and had absolutely no effect on your computer. Instead, these entries were set so that XP AntiVirus can find them when scanning your computer and report them as infections. The newer of versions of the program , such as XP Antivirus 2008 and XP Antivirus 2009, instead just display false results when scanning your computer that state infections were found. In order to remove these fake infections, though, you would first need to purchase the software as the trial does not allow you to remove them. To get rid of the infections you can goto:
