Question about PC Laptops

2 Answers

Recently my laptop has become extremely slow, the internet doesnt work and something called Virus Trigger keeps popping up. I have tried to delete it but it keeps saying access denied and i think it is probably a virus so I asked a friend how to reboot the whole laptop but she didnt know. I ran a scan to find out how many problems i had with my laptop and it found 127 problems. How can I get rid of all the problems without having to download anything?

You have to download something, removing viruses manually requires too much learning.

check www.infernallogic.com and download combfix, this will prolly remove your virus, cause u deffinately have at least one.

My hpg62 is slow and keeps locking


Give us more details if you really want help. What do you mean by Google and Documents quit working? What happens if you try to open your internet browser? What happens when you try to open a document?

You most likely have some type of virus infection. And if when you click on an application such as Word, Notepad, Internet Explorer, etc. you get a screen that pops up asking you which program would you like to use to open it, then your Program/File Associations has been changed by the virus.

A slow system is definitely a sign of a virus infection. Now McAfee and Norton will slow you to a crawl if you let your subscription expire and not renew it. So it's best to remove them (uninstall) if the subscription has expired and you don't plan on renewing it.

My acer laptop 7741z-5731 hangs after every other second. mouse doesn't move n it shows processing.it has become so slow that it takes 5 to 10 minutes in opening any window. please give me the solution. i...


Something is running in the background that is using processor time. Try shutting down NORTON (disconnect from internet first) Open several windows, play a game and play some music to stress the processor a bit, see if it is still happening. If it isn't Norton is your problem. Before I switched virus programs and ditched Norton, I had a lot of this going on. Norton seems to do a check every few seconds and I was never able to discover a way to turn that off. If you can handle the "techs" Call them and ask them to help you fix this... otherwise... Get another anti virus solution. (I use AVAST internet security)

My Netbook is slow than usually,, how can faster it?? Acer Aspire One 532h-2Bb


#1 Make sure your laptop is free from virus, spyware and trojan. A virus or spyware can make your laptop run slow or even damage the whole system. Run a security scan to find out if there are infection files hidden in the system. The slow laptop would be fixed by eliminating the virus.
#2 Remove obsolete programs to release more hard drive space. Laptop slow problem sometimes would be caused by the less hard drive space. To optimize your slow laptop, you can try to delete those unneeded programs, files from the hard disk especially the system disk.
#3 Empty the Recycle Bin to retrieve more system resource. Your laptop slow symptom maybe arises due to the deleted files in the Recycle Bin. If you forget to empty the Recycle Bin, those files in fact still exist on the hard drive and keep eating up your laptop system resource so that the laptop will run slow.
#4 Scan and fix Windows registry. Do you know how important registry is in Windows system? Corrupted, invalid or malicious registry will slow down your laptop and make it run unstable. You would receive many error messages such as dll errors, Internet Explorer errors or blue screen of death in the using of laptop. Thus, it is necessary for you to fix your slow laptop by cleaning registry errors.

Try deleting all unwanted files like Temp files, disk clean up, disk defragmentation.

My computer is slow. What can I do without


Depends- where is it exactly slow? is it while surfing the internet, or when running progrmas? either way, you can make it go faster.
If your internet is slow, you should scan your computer for viruses and spyware using suitable programs(for example- avast anti virus or spybot). If you still experience the same problem I would advise you to delete the computer after backing it up, and then installing a new copy of Windows.

if your problem is with programs running slowly- I can advise you to download this software, which can extremely help- CCleaner

Aspire laptop has become very slow to power up


It is cause by a very serious virus called "Conflicker"
Try to Do a upgrade of 7 (Free upgrade from Microsoft).
The upgrade does not delete your files, it should detect and erase viruses and the startup is quicker. (22 secs on my Dell Inspiron 2200 with 512MB RAM!!!)
Currently, the only other solution is to do a complete re-install.

Dell slow and freezing


I would take it apart ensuring you know what goes where and that you are not on a carpet so the kitchen if it has tiles and when taking memory , hard drive ( any electrical things out ) make sure you now and again touch a metal case or something to dis charge yourself of any static electricity.

Re seat the hard drive, memory etc and double check for dust.

If its still the same after putting it together then it would most likely be the installation on the computer of windows has too much starting up or the hard drive is not defragged or possibly a virus or trojan.

So worth while doing a virus scan and ensuring that you do not have too much starting up with your computer ( startup control panel by mlin ) is a good utility that or msconfig ( start --> run )

VERY SLOW..AND some internet not working!


One of the first things to do is download a program called "Malware Bytes" (Google it). Install and run the scanner/cleaner to wipe any nasties off of the machine. You may find that after running this program many of the woes you've described magically go away (especially the slow operation)...

Pops up lime wire, curser won't work, extremely slow


Try downloading Avast Free version. I have had great success removing things infected from LimeWire with this software. When you download and get it set up, it will ask if you want to set up a boot scan. Say yes. Let the system re-boot and run. if something pops up it will pop up a window with a siren on it. move everything to the chest. Do not delete anything as it may be a system file that you delete. Lime wire is a haven for viruses. I would suggest getting rid of it.
