Don't have a an icon


Please give more details as to what is happening and when it happens?

If you are saying your computer boots up but there are No Icons on the desktop, then a virus or infection has hidden them or changed some settings.

Click the Ctrl/Alt/Del keys to start the Task Manager. Press and Hold the Ctrl and Alt keys then hit the Del key. When the task manager opens up click the Processes tab. Under the processes tab click the columnar heading Image Name to sort the items running in alphabetical order. Look to see if you see explorer.exe running under the image name. If you do click it one time to highlight it then click the END PROCESS button at the bottom right of the Task Manager Window.

Next click FILE at the very top left corner of the Task Manager Window and select New Task (Run..). When the Create New Task window pops up type in: explorer.exe and press OK. Your desktop icons and start menu should start populating.

Cant get back to desktop


Pretty vague help request "can't get back to desktop". Is the computer booting? Is it that your desktop is blank after it boots with no icons being shown on the desktop? Viruses can hide the desktop and other things on the computer. Maybe your boot process has the problem when it tried to display the desktop. Try hitting the CTRL+ALT+DEL keys. Hold down each key as you hit them and don't take your finger off the keys until after you have pressed the DEL (Delete) Key. This will bring up your Task Manager. In the task manager window click the Processes tab and look for explorer.exe. If you see it click explorer.exe to highlight it then click End Process. After you end the process click FILE at the top left corner of the Task Manager Window and click the option New Task (run). When the Create New Task window opens type: explorer.exe and press OK. This will cause your desktop to reappear with icons if windows had a problem displaying it on the boot process.

Slow to open


Hi,
Is this slow when start up the computer or slow when you open an application?
If slow when start up the computer, the reason is your computer has too much start up programs and services. All these software, services is required to open as start up of the computer, that reduce speed of log on/ start up process. You can speed up by try these steps:
1. Start - Run: type: msconfig and hit enter.
2. The System Configuration Window will appear. Click on Selective Startup. Then go to Start up tab, untick the process that you think it not importance for start up such as Acrobat Reader...ect. 3. Then hit apply and restart your computer. You can disable all of start up services.
If slow when you try to open an application, then the reason is your computer busy work with some other higher piority process. If you think that you need this application open quicker, you can go to Task Manger and End the task you don't want it run or the task that took a lot of CPU resources.

Hope this will hellp
Thanks for reading.

This is another version of the fake antivirus programs going around. You will need to access the task manager to end the process. Hold the control and alt buttons down together as it starts and keep pressing the del key repaetedly until it opens. This will get you in to task manager to end the process. You will need to run Malwarebytes to remove the virus. I am providing a link with step by step instructions and access to Malwarebytes for you to clean your computer. Click HERE to go to that page.

Too Many Processors Running


You can close them manually from the right system tray, click on those you do not need & close them. You can also use the windows task manager to shut down processes you do not need. Hope this helps.

Computer slows up


Sounds like something is slowly using up all the memory on the PC. I would use the Task Manager to see what program is doing this. To start the Task Manager, go to Start -> Run and type: taskmgr The Task Manager window will then open. Click on the Processes tab. This will list all the programs and how much memory they are utilizing. Click on the Mem Usage column, and this will sort all the programs by memory useage. If you find one using an unusually large amount of memory, select it and press the End Process button. You will then be asked to confirm you want to stop it. Hit Yes. With this process stopped, see if system performance improves. You can also click on the Performance tab and see what the computer's resource utilization is, such as CPU and Memory utilization.
