    You are. The question is rather vague. Could you be a bit more specific? No one program will do every thing no matter what they advertise

    Are you inquiring about a HP Compaq Presario v4000? I looked at the specs, that model has a few miles on it right. I have a Gateway MX6421 that someone gave me when I sat up his new ASUS. I put a faster and larger HDD , added 2GB of ram and loaded it with Win& 64bit. It runs very good for its age(born in 2005). It runs better than when it was new. That said, every program you load slows the computer down somewhat some more that others. The trick is to stop the programs that you do not need to start at boot, or run when not needed. The less running the faster your computer will process what YOU want it to. You will find many Free programs of many types on a site FileHippo:http://www.filehippo.com/ If I can help with suggestions let me know.

I couldn't agree more, CCleaner, Malwarebytes, I use AVAST Free, Systen Ninja, and tried many more. I like to give the different programs a "test ride", If I like it I keep it if not on to the next one. Some of my clients, I do computer maintence, use "Internet Suites", they don't want to be bothered with doing the processes themselves. I find the Suites to intrusive, resource pigs, always butting-in, but that a personal opinion. If you have the resources,(Specs), in you computer and choose to go for the Suites there are quite a few of them, Norton(not for me), AVAST 7 Pro or Internet Security 7, McAfee, many many more. If your computer is new it probably came with a trial version of some sort AV/malware/ internet shield program. The bottom line is you are your best protection by updating, updating, updating everything. and Common Sense. It's a simple question with a rather complex answer.

Max is right. There is no one program. You can use things like ccleaner to keep your registry in order and do things like defragmenting your hard drive regularly and using disk cleanup.

Would it be best, to have virus removed before getting new laptop? or keep it?


Sorry not sure what it is you are asking here, do you mean to repair the old computer versus buying a new one? If so then yes repair the old one. Buy a virus software made by Trend Micro systems, it is the best I have ever used. Here is a link to Trend

How to increase the speed and efficiency of your laptop


INSTRUCTIONAL: STEPs

The first step is to run a disk defrag on your system. What a disk defragmenter does is increase the speed in which you can access information. Whenever your computer processes information it needs to jump from place to place and this takes time. Defragging your system allows your computer to stream information through one path. This will speed up laptop computers ability to access and run different programs.
The second step is to eliminate as many unnecessary startup programs as possible. Anytime you install a new program it will try to automatically start itself every time you power your computer on. This will dramatically slow down the speed your computer can start up or shutdown. These programs also eat up valuable RAM which causes the computer to be very sluggish. Eliminate all but the necessary programs and feel the incredible difference in your laptop processor speed.
The third step is to clean up registry congestion. This is without question the most important step you can take to speed up your laptop. As we download new or remove old programs our registries get congested with useless and redundant files. This clogs everything up and leaves you asking why is my computer slow? Getting rid of those unnecessary files will not only speed up your computer but prevent it from crashing in the future.
These are three steps you can do right now to get your computer running like it did out of the box. If you are a computer novice and want a program to do the work for you I highly recommend visiting the link below. Instead of spending hundreds on new upgrades or thousands on a new laptop, why not just optimize your computer to reach it's peak performance for a fraction of the cost? Give it a try.

Have a new Windows 7. Adobe keeps asking to


I would recommend uninstalling the version of Adobe Reader you have installed through the Control Panel>Programs and Features.

Then download and install the latest version directly from Adobe's site.

If you were looking for the free version, then you have downloaded the wrong one. Go to AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition and download that instead.

Please help my computer keep having a pop about a virus and worm but I already have Iolo protection but now it just locks everything up it keeps saying activate this new protection


Be real careful, because there are websites that will launch this dialog box and no matter which answer you choose.... YOU LOSE! because it'll install a virus..
Your best bet is a program such as NORTON Utilities or a reputable app.
Keep it running in the background and even if you run into one of these foney dialog boxes again, simply force quit your program without closing the dialog box... be careful..

Printer wont feed paper says out of paper


you "may" have something stuck on one of the feed rollers - a ripped piece of paper or something. See if you can examine the rollers, and look very carefully, particularly on the side that the paper keeps jamming.

In all honesty though, printers are pretty disposable these days. They're not worth getting fixed, and if you can't do quick maintenance on them, getting a new one is your best solution.

Best audio for my new car


In all honesty the best thing is to go to your local stereo store and ask them. They get paid for helping people out. Take your car down and get a sales person to have a quick look over your car. He can then tell you whether you need 7x10's or 6x9's for rear fill. What type of AMP you need, what kind of wiring what kind of head unit. Ask as many questions as you can.
