My computer is very slow


on your desktop click on START, then click on RUN, a small windows will open. Type in (msconfig) without the parenthesis., this will open the system configuration windows and make sure (Normal startup is selected) then click on the (STARTUP) tab, click on disable all and then click on APPLY and then OK. a message windows will appear to restart your computer, click on DO NOT RESTART NOW buttom. this will disable programs that start with windows when you turn on your computer to make your computer start faster.

Use this link to learn how to speed up your computer:
http://www.microsoft.com/AtWork/getstarted/speed.mspx
I also recommend using an anti-virus software like (Kaspersky, Norton, Trend Micro or McAfee) internet security software to scan and protect your PC.

You can also download and install Glary Utilities from this website:
http://www.glarysoft.com/

also Run Microsoft Update to download new drivers and software updates to make sure your pc has enough resources to run programs.

My advice is do not run too many programs at the same time, this may cause your system to freeze and become unresponsive.

Comment back if this doesn't help and lets go deep into making your computer faster like running SYSTEM RESTORE, UPGRADING MEMORY, etc.
Good Luck.

How to remove a virus/spyware infection off your PC


I remove viruses for a living and I wanted to share the ways that I remove and protect a PC from future infections.

I have learned that 95% of all computers have some form of anti-virus or anti-spyware preinstalled on the hard drive. 100% of the time it is trial subscription. Which means it will only last 30-60 days. If you do not renew your subscription your PC will eventually become infected.

Here is my plan of action.
1. Go to the control panel and chose software programs. This will show you what is installed. Look for Norton Anti-Virus or Live Update. Norton is the most common installed piece of software that I run into, so let's focus on Norton. If Norton Anti-Virus is not removed completely it will slow down your computer. It will cause your computer to become infected. It will cause blue screens. Believe me I know and I have cleaned hundreds of PCs'.
2. In order to completely remove Norton off your PC. You need click here. This will take you to the Norton uninstall utility page. Pick the version that you have and run it. Reboot your PC. Make sure Norton is removed by checking into the control panel and then go to program icon. This will bring up a list of programs that currently are installed on your PC. Make sure Norton or Live Update is not present. If it is highlight it and click on remove.
3. Now you need to download Malwarebytes, click here.
This is a FREE tool that will remove almost any infections that are out there and may be out there. I only use the FREE version and it has created a lot of business for me. Run it and make sure you update it. Then do a scan. A quick scan works most of the time. If any infections are found, just remove and reboot your PC. You should be virus free. If this does not work boot to safe mode and run Malwarebytes again. Your PC should be clean.
4. Now you need good Anti-Virus. I recommend Avast. Again the Free Home version works for me. If you really need the protection go for the Pro version. Click here for a Free home version of Avast. Install, register and reboot. Your PC is clean and you are now protected.

Check out my short video for more info. Click
Enjoy

Are norton security says that are security status is at risk.tried fix now a few times,doesnt work.says spyware defs at risk.virus spyware scan at risk.protection updates at risk.please help


In my experience Norton can become flakey at times. Make sure your subscription to norton has not expired. Otherwise try un-installing norton and re-installing it. Part of it may have become corrupted.

Chances are, the software that is already in your computer will be able to connect to its website and after entering an authorization code provided to you when you ordered it, the software should update itself. Otherwise, contact Norton's website directly.

I can access the WEB but download email. I receive a page that identifies a service problem & provides an error code:COFE1700.


someone I know had this problem. Apparently this is a security issue. We tried everything and nothing worked, getting new browser, deleting cookies, change password. Apparently the problem was Norton. The cofe1700 error code dissapear after we updated to the newest version of norton.
Thats why I don't use norton protects your computer but gives you other kind of headaches. i hope this solves the error code:COFE1700 for everyone.

ø Select a bolded date and a restore point, and then click next
ø (Note: - You need to choose a Date before the installation of Norton)
ø Click OK if a pop-up window about closing programs appears. The Confirm Restore Point Selection window opens.
ø Click Next. The computer should shut down and turn back on automatically after the restoration completes. The Restoration Complete window appears.
ø Click OK. The computer has now been restored to a previous time when it worked correctly.
ø (Note: - If an error message appears saying that the computer cannot be restored to the point you selected, try a different restore point)
After the System Restore is complete, and the computer starts successfully, update the computer software as follows: - 1). Update the system virus definitions. 2).Get the latest critical system updates using Microsoft's Windows update.
Once all this is Done you Need to Download and Install Norton Again.

Error 5 error LU1812 live update error 18 Have downloaded new version of norton 360 on sony va10 computer with windows vista and each time I try to update it does not complete because of these errors. ...


Download and run the LiveUpdate fix tool from Symantec HERE

After you run the fix tool, open Norton 360, click on the "Scans" link at the top of the window, choose "Comprehensive Scan" and then click the "Go" button This will take some time, but will thoroughly inspect your computer for infections

To address your other question regarding the LiveUpdate settings, you can change the configuration to use an HTTP proxy. To do so, please follow these steps.

1. Open the "Symantec LiveUpdate" Control Panel.

2. In the LiveUpdate Configuration window, click on the "HTTP" tab.

3. Click on the radio button that says "I want to customize my HTTP settings for LiveUpdate." Enter the information for your HTTP Proxy server, click the "Apply" button, and then click the "OK" button.

Please let me know if this process resolves the issue you are having with LiveUpdate. Also, if the scan finds any infections, please let me know what is found.
