    It says that I have a infected computer, and use the spyware 2009 to correct it well I clicked onto it like a fool and this nasty stuff came up, and it was suppose to be fixed but it is still showing up I don't think I have a virus now, but when I clicked on it I think it put one on my computer. My daughter has AVG and it is coming up at the bottom of her screen now, I will try what you have noted and see if that helps. Thanks for the advice.

Are you sure it is a virus?

Go here:
http://housecall.trendmicro.com/
and run the online scanner.

Then to install a free anti-virus program - Go to avg.com and install the free version and run a scan.

Also make sure it is not spyware. Go to spybot.com and install and run that free program.

To try to help further, can you describe any info you can about the virus or issue you have?

    If you can find out the name of the infection, I can look for specific removal instructions. Often, small traces of the infection can be left on the pc and need to be removed manually.

    I also use ccleaner.com to help rid my pc of misc dead files and to clean up the registry. This is also free.

How do I cancel documents in a queue


Cheers james heron

To cancel a queued document, there are several ways, it is best to go to printing devices and open what is printing the printer you want to cancel, click Cancel and disappear the document.

In many cases this does not help then you click cancel, the document continues to appear, that's when it works best to turn off the computer and turn it on again.
Another thing you can do to disappear a file from the print queue, disconnect the printer's USB cable and connect it again, for it can do so from your computer or from the same printer.

Another way that can work is, turn the printer off and turn it on again, you should always look the team to lose the memory of what is printed, in order to begin again.

My pc is very slow


If for the PC, and running slow, you need to look at the Ram, and start up programs. Or This Could be a Virus. This Virus normally corrupts your computer. Run Spybot Search n Destroy and see what comes up. If really corrupted, then you need to Reformat.

If you need to do a Reformat. Be sure and do a Back-up First., because you will loose everything.

If you know how to do a back-up, save all your documents, pictures and music. If not take it to a reputable computer shop to take of this. There will be a slight charge, but they will save all your important data.

Last week i tried to print but it didn't work and appeared 5100 error. i have the pixma mp 170 printer... i don't know how i can fix it


Hello

The manual states that the error code 5100 is a result of:

Service error 5100 is displayed

Cause: Movement of the FINE Cartridge Holder is blocked.
Action: Clear the paper jam or foreign object that is preventing the FINE Cartridge Holder from moving, cancel printing from your computer, then turn OFF the machine and turn it back ON again.
---
You might see something blocking the printer head, check inside to see if there is a paper jam, staple, or some other object blocking the print head.

If this does not work, try resetting the device:

  1. Turn the printer off.
  2. Hold the button Resume / Cancel (red triangle in the circle), click POWER - indicator lights green.
  3. Release the button Resume / Cancel, keeping POWER.
  4. Click Resume / Cancel 2 times, keeping POWER, and then release all the buttons.
  5. When the indicator light Green - click Resume / Cancel 4 times!
  6. Turn the printer off button POWER.
Hope this can help you.

Best regards
Andrea

Did something???? How do I cancel printing? Unplugging, Info I've been given will not stop printing, even when I press Delete or Cancel. It just wants to keep printing...


there is worm virus that will make a printer print until it runs out of paper and if you add more paper it will keep printing till it runs out again i would take the paper out of the machine and run an antivirus scan on your computer usually the print is not legible with this virus
