The easiest thing would be to convince your so-called friends to remove it or provide you with the password and instructions. Threaten legal action if you have to since they've essentially made your computer unuseable. These programs are designed to be hard to find and remove and usually used by parents to control their children's usage.

You could also try booting into safe mode and manually removing the program and references.

You need to run a System Restore on the machine.

Go into Programs, Accessories, System Tools, then select System Restore.

Follow the instructions and choose a restore date before you installed xrools.

This will then remove the program without affecting any of your files.

Hey my firefox program want responed


Hello

Mozilla's Firefox is a popular Web browser. If Firefox 2 fails to respond after previously working, the user may have installed an add-on, theme or other modification that is in conflict with the program.

You can attempt to start Firefox in Safe Mode to see if this solves the problem. Windows users should open the Start Menu, open the Firefox folder in the programs list and choose "Mozilla Firefox (Safe Mode)." A prompt will appear, asking the user if she wants to make changes -- such as disabling add-ons and using the default toolbars -- permanent. The user can skip ahead to Safe Mode.

If Firefox responds in Safe Mode, the user can close the program and restart Safe Mode. This time, he can select the boxes to reset all defaults within the browser in order to run it normally. If it does not respond, the user can uninstall the program (from the "Add or Remove Programs" option in the Windows Control Panel) and download a new installation from the Mozilla website.

Warning
Uninstalling Firefox will delete a user's settings, including plug-ins, history, bookmarks and other settings. Users who wish to save this data should employ the Firefox Profile Manager to save a copy of the profile before uninstalling the program.

Hello,

Today tip will help you to delete the files and folders that are being used by another programs and applications, for example a virus affected file. You have tried to delete such kind of files or folders and received the any following messages.

· Cannot delete file: the file is in use by the other program
· Cannot delete file: There has been a sharing violation
· Cannot delete file: The file is in use by another program or user
· Cannot delete file: Disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use.
· Cannot delete file: The source or destination file may be in use

Normally, a windows restart will allow you to delete such files or folders that are being used by other program, but if you want to manage it without restart your computer then simply you need to download a freeware tool called Unlocker.

You can download this tool for any windows version using Unlocker link. Download it and run the easy setup.

After installation, right click on file or folder that you want to delete and select the option Unlocker.

If your requested file or folder is used or locked by other application then a small window listing of lockers will appear.

Here simply click on “Unlock All” button and now you can easily delete this file.

Thanks,

Bhautesh.

Restoring My GT4022 with windows xp


Hope that I can help, a little more info? Please do not delete any programs, go to control panel add/remove programs. I have a usb drive that I pass around to my users with Malware_bytes and other programs, the free one, very good. first download Malware_Bytes from tne Internet and update it and scan your PC, delete anything from the quarenteen folder. If you have malware, it is likely that restore won't help. Windows updates should be done about every 2 weeks.
If you cannot get to the Net, have someone else do it for you and install it, have them run it as well, will do yuo both a favor.

Start the computer in safe mode by pressing f8 as the first screen appears and selecting safe mode.
it will start slower than normal , and when it does , uninstall , not delete the program in question. if you just delete the directory, it will leave junk installed you dont want. Sooo unistall it from it's own uninstall program or from the "add & remove programs" section in the controll panel.

Error messages


one reason for the GWUtil97.dll error is:
  • A DLL file that was needed for more than one program on your computer was accidentally deleted when you uninstalled an unused software program, and now the program that needs that file can’t find it.
  • A new software application has been installed on your computer and it wrote over top of the DLL file that another program needs. Sometimes the version that has replaced the old DLL file isn’t compatible with the older program.
  • Sometimes software installs and uninstalls don’t work the way they should and a DLL file gets damaged or corrupted.
  • Malicious spyware or adware software has been secretly loaded on your computer and is messing about with your Windows DLL file structure. *Recommended: use this free download anti-spyware scan to see if you’re infected.
  • Occasionally, your computer has a hardware part that’s dying, like a hard drive or RAM chip and your DLL files are being mixed up or corrupted as a result.
  • Damage to your Windows Registry is affecting the way your DLL files operate.
then 2 problem with user log in-

to fix do this go to 'C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME' , where USERNAME is your user. Then right click on the folder and go to 'Sharing and Security...' Click on the security tab and make sure that SYSTEM has full permissions. If SYSTEM is not there, add it and then give permissions

or...

delete ntuser.dat in your profile, windows will recreate it or if you dont want to take the risk then...

Search for ntuser.man & rename it to ntuser.dat if you don't pick up ntuser.man, then logg in with safe mode & networking as administrator, rename the corrupt profile, then, logg in again as yourself so that a new profile is created.

Cant get rid of program


It may have put something into the registry so that it will always download and run on start up. You can try the following to get rid of it. 1) Open the registry editor. (To do this, go to Start -> Run and type: regedit ) 2) Browse to the following location HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run 3) Look at all the keys (items) in this folder. The program you are looking for may be listed here. If you find it, make note of where the file is located and delete the file that is mentioned in the key. Then delete the key. This will keep it form restarting after reboot.
