Computer restarts everytime i connect monitor to it


It sounds like the onboard video is failing. The computer should have a PCI Express x16 slot. You can get a basic graphics card to install into the machine for about $35 locally.

WHY DOES OUTLOOK EXPRESS INSIST ON COMPACTING FOLDERS WHEN WE CLOSE IT ?


OE has a long and troubled history with compacting folders. In the most current version, OE compacts all folders automatically after you open and close the program 100 times. Compacting folders is absolutely essential for maintaining your files in good working order. Therefore,
Do not interrupt the process once it has begun
It is best not to use your computer at all until the process is complete, which can take a few minutes.
Under no circumstances must you ever use Task Manager to kill the msimn.exe process, or put your computer on Standby, or turn off the power, or use a memory-intensive program while compaction is occurring. Any of those can cause destruction of your files and the loss of your messages.
If you don't like waiting for that 100th closing, you can compact all folders manually at any time. For best results always use this procedure.
1: On the File menu, click Work Offline so that no new messages will be arriving
2: In the Folder list, click on Outlook Express so that no e-mail or news folder is open.
3: Close the Folder list by clicking the X in the upper right-hand corner of the list panel. Alternatively you can click Layout on the View menu, and then clear the checkbox for "Folder List”.
4: On the File menu, point to Folder, and then click Compact All Folders. Do not use your computer until the process is complete, which might take several minutes.
5: If an error occurs, close Outlook Express, re-open it, and begin the process again from the top. If the same error occurs again, close Outlook Express, restart your computer (or log off and then log on again), open Outlook Express and then begin the whole process again.
Unfortunately that does not reset the internal counter to zero, so OE will still compact after the 100th closing You can edit the registry manually to reset the counter, or you can use OE TOOL to compact all folders and reset the counter at the same time. To reset it manually
1: Close Outlook Express and all message windows.
2: Click Start, click Run and type without quotes "regedit".
3: Navigate to this key
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Identities\{GUID}\Software\Microsoft\Outlook Express\5.0
where GUID is the long number used for your Identity
4: In the right-hand pane, double-click "Compact Check Count", then change the value to zero(0).

Gateway Gt5412 virus has taken over my administrator rights what can i do


The first thing you need to do is restart your computer and directly after the BIOS screen loads press F8 until you get a Windows menu. In this menu, navigate to "Safe Mode with Networking" and press Enter. It'll take a couple of minutes to load the drivers and present you with the log in screen. Go ahead and log in, and open a web browser and download Malware Bytes from: http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10804572.html?tag=mncol;1.
After it is done downloading, install it and let it update the virus definitions. When this is done, run the program (You don't need to start the trial) and run a full scan. Any infected files will be listed and the program will let you remove them. After the files are removed, Malware Bytes will probably ask you to restart your computer. Go ahead and do so and let it boot normally. Log in and see if the virus is gone. If not, reboot into safe mode, start up Malware Bytes again and do another scan.
I hope this helps!

Slow internet on 1 computer


download atf cleaner to the desktop of the slow computer. open it , check the box that says "select all" then click on "clean selected". the first time you run this, it may take a few minutes. this program empties all the junk internet explorer saves, which reduces bandwidth issues. I run mine everytime i get off the internet. after the first run, it runs much quicker, and always run it twice or until you get the message "no files were removed" if you can't get to this point, you should run your virus scanner in safe mode. if your getting fast internet on the other three computers , it's not your provider, it's something between your router and your monitor, usually trash your web browser is trying to update while you are trying to surf. www.atribune.org/ccount/click.php?id=1

run this program , post again here if you need further assistance..

Slow to boot (10-15 minutes)


A couple of different fixes you can try.

Go into Control Panel | Add/Remove Programs. Remove/Uninstall any unused or unknown programs.
Start | Run | Msconfig - On General tab, select "Selective Startup" and uncheck "Load startup items". Reboot computer. If computer boots faster (and daughter's profile works), then go back into Msconfig, select "Normal Startup", go to Startup tab, and start unchecking programs to slim down what loads when computer starts. Note: NONE of the programs in Startup tab are NEEDED for windows to run, but some of your applications may need them.

I'd also recommend getting a good Anti-Virus/Anti-Spyware package to make sure no viruses or trojan horses are on it.

I have a zyxel p66ohw router connected to my pc via an ethernet card, everything is fine untill my son logs on with his playstation 3, or my wife logs on with her laptop then i cant connect everytime i try...


Make sure that your TCP/IP properties are set to "Obtain an IP address automatically". If you still cannot connect after you change that, and after waiting for a couple of minutes, then open a command prompt and type "IPCONFIG". Make a note of the address at "Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . :" That's the address you need to go to to access the modem's settings..You'll need an ID and password. These would be in the modem's manual.
---to find tcp/ip properties---
It depends from PC to PC, but, try this:
Start (Bottom left of your screen)
Settings
Network Connections
Local Area Connection
Properties
Internet Protocol TCP/IP
Properties

That's how it is on my PC.

Messenger and skype not starting automatically on start up of computer and keep losing downloads everytime shut down


Check your RAM. Do you know the program memtest86? You first download the memtest86 (easily found with Google). Then, you make a bootable diskette (or CD-Rom). The instructions are very easy to follow. You leave the diskette (or the CD) in your computer and restart it. You may have a result within few minutes. If not, do the test during the night. Once, I got an error message only after 8 hours running the test.

Give me some news.
