Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC

1 Answer

Computer freezes I can start my computer, but once the desktop appears it freezes. The only things that work are...I have a virus scan that runs automatically, but it can't get to the end of the scan, and an AVG pop up that tells me my free trial is over. I try to uninstall but it freezes in the middle. I get a message that tells me there are four errors that read: Local machine: installation failed. Initilization :Warning: checking of state of the item file _AVG7_nex_sk.dll failed. The other 3 all begin with the AVG part but the end is different. I also get an small pop up window error message that reads: error loading C:\WINDOWS\sytem32\lsyfgibv.dll . I have tried to start in safety mode to restore my system and I can't get to safety mode.

On the screen where you choose safe more (after you tap on f8)
you also have an option to choose "last know good configuration"
choose that and that should work.
If it dosenot you should back up the data on that hard drive and reinstall windows. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but if the last know good config dosent work you only have very technically challenging steps that you can try like recovery console and rebuilding the boot sector. if its vista you have more options.

Let me know if you want to persue these options ant i will give you the steps

    Assuming that last known good configuration works i would try clearing your startup folder.

This can be because of virus infection, there are so many applications on your start up and low virtual memory.
But my best suggestion is for you to run a virus scan on your computer so it can detect viruses, worms and malware that you get in surfing the internet or by just sharing files. If this will not work you need to re-install your OS so your computer would be like brand new.

Programs will run and them freeze up(not responding)


This could be such a wide range of issue, multiple solutions are possible.

1. Run a full computer scan with virus protection software...NOT NORTONS! Just trust me on that...
2. Perhaps you are running too many programs at once, or very large programs simultaneously and your computer RAM or CPU cannot keep up.
3. Perhaps your HDD needs defragmenting
4. Could be good to run a Check Disk
5. Run the Cleanup wizard to delete any unnecessary files ie temp internet files, temporary install files etc.

Unfortunately, the list goes on. There really isn't enough information here to give an accurate diagnoses

Computer has viruses which might be why it has a the blue screen


Try entering safe mode and doing the virus scan:
  • Switch on your PC
  • Before the Windows Logo screen appears press F8 to get the startup options menu
  • Chose Safe Mode
  • Once your computer boots, run AVG and let it remove all the viruses. Reboot and it should go into Windows as normal.You might have to rerun the scan a few times to get rid of everything but it should do the job.

Computer is very slow.


McAfee virus software is a memory hog. You need to add more memory to your pc. It uses pc3200 memory. This computer has a memory capacity of 4gigabytes. The memory slots are numbered this way......starting from the memory slot closest to the processor>
one, three, two, four. 1 and 2 work together, 3 and 4 work together. So if you buy just 2 gigabytes......put them in 1 and 2. This will help. Sounds like the virus software is doing a full system scan....you could do a "quick"scan and do a "full" scan once a week....

My computer is still crashing/freezing


It may be because of an y virus or trogans in your pc. Just format your c drive and reload the operating system. And before accessing other drives and internet install any antivirus softwares and update it immediately when connected to net.

Freezing up


It could be a number of things. More info on the machine would help.

Here are a couple things to try.
1. Defrag your drive start>all programs>accessories>system tools>defrag
2. Run spyware scan
3. Run virus scan

Keep in mind, low memory will cause this as well as running too many programs at once.

Some games can cause this if you don't meet minimum sys reqs to play the game.

Comment back if this helps or not.

The problem has been a series of smaller problems which progressively resulted in a lock or freeze. The few times it does not freeze, a screen flashes on selling a Spyware protection. I think my husband...


Try starting your computer in safe mode and do a virus scan once in safe mode. While in safe mode Windows only loads the basic devices to run your computer and usually viruses are not loaded untill windows starts in regular mode. Don't panic once you are in safe mode and your screen looks all grainy, this is normal. 
  1. Restart your computer and press F8 as soon as you turn it on.
  2. Click the "safe mode with networking" option
  3. Update your antivirus
  4. Do a full system scan
  5. Restart your computer and hope for the best.
If that doesn't work, than reinstall windows.
If you need further assistance, let me know.
Avast is the best free antivirus there is. google it, install it, and enjoy your computer again.Another option is to reinstall windows. If you have the cd that came with the computer than put it in the cd rom and restart your computer and follow onscreen instructions.

MY DESKTOP FREZZER'S UP


First try alt+control+delete option if u can reach on task manager. close all application from task manager and it should be good to go.

it might be number of reasons why your computer are freezing. but make sure about ur cpu fan if its stop working or not cooling your system 's processor. This fan is located on top of your processor.
that would be the worst one coz it could fry up ur processor.

Some other reasons may be faulty ram, any new hardware changes etc.
but next time please explain your situation little more thouroughly so its easy for anybody here to help you ..
Good luck !!!

Hi,

several things to try.
1:- run disk defragmenter from start/all programs/accesories/system tools. also use disk cleanup from the same menu.
2:- remove non-essential programs from the startup menu.
3:- Add more system RAM/Memory if your motherboard will take it.
