Download process explorer

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896653.aspx'


Extract the program, make a shortcut and copy the shortcut to

START MENU- PROGRAMS - STARTUP
Now every time you start the computer process explorer will start up and you can kill any processes you need

also you can disable programs from startup by

start -> run -> msconfig -> startup tab

My computer is being hanging


Goto Strart and then Run
write "msconfig" inside Run tab and press 'enter'
inside the 'Sys config utility' window click on 'startup' tab then uncheck all the applications except your current antivirus and press apply then 'ok' and then 'exit without restart' option.

Now right click My Computer and go to properties tab.
click 'Advanced' tab then under performance menu click on 'settings'
goto 'Advanced' click on 'change' and increase your virtual memory to 2048 in both spaces.
now restart windows.

To quickly restart windows press CNTRL+ALt+DEL
inside task manager you will find all the open applications .
right click on each applicaion and click on end process tree then ok

Close all your apps like this and you will find your windows a lot faster and now you can reboot or turn off your windows as usual from start button.



There are many things that might cause your PC to run slowly. It could be a fragmented disk; fragmented registry; a virus, trojan, or spyware; high CPU and/or utilization due to too many programs running; high disk I/O; or something else.

To check your CPU and memory utilization, run Task Manager. You can start Task Manager by pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL and then clicking on the Task Manager button. In Task manager, click on the Performance tab and check CPU Usage and PF Usage. PF Usage is an indicator of memory usage. If one or both of these is high, click on the Processes tab, and sort the columns by CPU or Memory to see what processes are consuming the resource. If you are not sure what the process "Image name" is for, google the name and you should find what the process is for.

If your CPU and memory usage are reasonable, then you may have a different issue. Even if you running anti-virus software, it may be beneficial to scan your PC with another scanner to check for viruses. No anti-virus software is 100% perfect at catching everything. Here are a few good free online virus scanners that you can run to check your PC:

My computer keeps locking up and when I try to close the program it just loops and on the task manager it keeps repeating the same programs and won't allow closure, any suggestions?


You could try running the excellent Microsoft purchased Sysinternals Process Explorer instead of the task manager it has a Kill Process Tree (SHIFT + DEL).

Use Task Scheduler in Windows Vista or in XP/2000use Mike Lin's Startup Control Panel to make it run for all users at Startup and then set it to replace normal Windows Task manager, always have it ready minimized to Kill the programs entire process if you have a problem.

You might get issues with Process Explorer with certain PC Games which can throw on error (5024) - Required Security Module can't be activated ( only when you are using sysinternals process explorer check out this link showing SecuROM on the game Spore when using Process Explorer !!!

Desktop Error Message


Probably this is a spyware, use a good anti spyware or do the following:

Run Process Explorer (right click on task bar>task manager>Processes) and Kill the Following Processes:
wscript.exe
dxdlg.exe (kill this one first)

Run Autoruns and under logon tab, remove
C:\WINDOWS\system32\wscript.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\boot.vbs
Search for entries named wproxp and remove it

Remove the following files from your PC:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\dxdlg.exe
wproxp.exe (Most probably in your system32 or windows folder)
C:\WINDOWS\system32\boot.vbs
