I was speaking to a friend on Facebook on Sunday, or at least I thought it was my friend. A link popped up asking me "Do I want to laugh". Thinking that my friend sent it to me I proceeded to try...


You have a virus on your computer from clicking the link you were sent. Your friend who sent it to you also had/has a virus.

You need to clean your computer of this virus by performing a virus scan, get something like AVAST anti virus and run a scan to get rid of the virus.

In the future, never click on links sent through chat or on other statuses like that.

Check out pages like the Bulldog Estate and Facecrooks, these pages will warn you about clicking on links such as the one you clicked.

The sooner you run a scan, the better off you will be.

Computer slow due to unwanted toolbar or software


What is unwanted toolbar or software? Unwanted toolbar or software are affiliate content come with setup program that install on your computer without notification or approval. It can be image, media, sound and other resources. Since you download and install the main application, you also get the bundle applications. At most time, people do not aware that those additional stuffs were installed on their computer. Malicious bundle install can slow your computer. So here we suggest you keep away of them.

When you download software which claims it is free, you should take care at installing. It will prompt you to install other program. If you are a new of computer, you may install them by mistake.
Those annoying things not only install on your computer but also add themselves to startup. Please pay attention to those malicious behaviors, they may take potential threats to your computer. It is suggested to uninstall useless and stubborn program with a perfect uninstaller.

What's more, some of the program does not slow down your computer. However it comes bundled with some spyware or malware applications that install in the background of your computer and use resources. I do not recommend you to download peer to peer program such like LimeWire. Computer performance becomes if you always do things as above. Of course, an efficient anti-virus is importance to you. Make sure you update the anti-virus once a week. Cleaning virus and spyware gives your computer speed obvious improving.
If you really need like part of the bundle applications but not like it to load at startup, Here is the method to clean up startup.
1 Click Start>Run, you will see a dialogue box.
2 Type in msconfig and click OK.
3 Click Startup and select any items you want to remove.
4 Restart your computer.
As you already know what is unwanted toolbar or software. You can uncheck the content when install. Keeping your computer clean is very importance for a fast computer.

Hi i let myu boyfriend go online i asked him not to go on any game sites and download from them., i come home and turn on laptop and it is soooo slow., it takes at least half hour to work and when i open...


Click Start
Click All Programs
Click Accessories
Click System Tools
Click System Restore

Use System Restore to "restore my computer to an earlier point in time",
i.e., pick some date/time before your UNTRUSTWORTHY EX-boyfriend started to use your computer.

This "time-travel" should work. Then, do a "full" virus-scan, to see if any viruses are still present.

Sony Vaio VGN-TXN29N slow start up and battery


Probably full of spyware / clogged by programs.

Remove / uninstall any existing spyware program(s)
Download Malwarebytes(FREE) / install / full scan / delete all infections.
Ensure you have aPAID anti-virus program installed / update / full scan.

Open My Computer / right click on / C drive / properties /disk cleanup (Tick all boxes) / remove all files surplus / OK it as quite safe to do so.

Perform defragment. Start / Programs / accesories / system tools / defragmenter.

Go to Start / run / type in msconfig / enter / select start up / untick all BUT antivirus and malware program / close / reboot / tick box that pops up upon reboot.

This will absolutely speed up your Laptop. Perform this every week and you will never need for Tech assistance again!! (Except the msconfig one)
