Pop-ups on my laptop


The anti-virus popups are a virus, If you have an anti-virus loaded on your PC then you need to either update it or call the customer support for the anti-virus and have them help you get all the adware and malware off your system. If you have a free anti-virus, then you need to remove it and load something better, like maybe windows defender or Microsoft security essentials, which are free full version antivirus programs, then load MBAM (malwarebytes.org) and run a full scan on your system. Sometimes if the popups are bad enough, it would just be better to do a new re-install of the whole system and start from scratch.

Laptop runs slow


A slow computer could be caused by a number of things - 1. Insufficient RAM (memory) - if your computer has less than 512Mb of RAM then increase it to at least 1Gb of RAM. 2. Registry problems - clean and repair the registry, it will contain unused registry keys. Use programs such as Registry Mechanic, Microsoft RegClean etc. 3. Uninstall/remove unused programs, this will also free up hard disk space. 4. Not enough hard disk space - swap file space may need to be increased if Windows hasn't been configured to manage it. 5. Install latest Windows updates. 6. Update virus definition files and scan computer for viruses, Trojans, malware etc. 7. Clear the Internet cache for faster browsing. 8. Hard disk maintenance is required at least once a month to keep it functioning efficiently. Run the following programs - Disk Cleanup - removes temporary files that are no longer used and to recovers hard disk space. Disk Defragmenter to make fragmented files into contiguous files and therefore the hard disk access is faster.

Curser problems


I would try scanning your computer for viruses, adware etc which might be using up memory. Or, not to scare you, there could be tracking software or key stroke loggers. Try scanning with Advanced System Care, a free program on C-Net.

My laptop is getting more and more slow


Hi,

It seems that:-
1. You have lot many programs pre-loading on startup and you are running out of RAM.
2. There's a virus (memory resident) that is duplicating itself on a particular keystroke or on opening a certain program or accessing a certain file or folder.

Q1. What's your OS. (Windows XP, Vista, 7, ???)
Q2. What Antivirus are you using?
Q3. Do you maintain your HDD by defragmenting it at least once in 6 months?
Q4. Do you perform a Scandisk / chkdsk whenever you feel that the unit is slowing down?
Q5. Do you often visit sites full of malware & spyware?

I think you shuold be able to Answer the Questions yourself because the answers lie in the questions.

Also there are quite a few anti-spyware / malware / script blocking software like SpyStopper Pro v5 available on the net. I think you should install it.

Anything you didn't follow, feel free to write in again.

Can i connect ethernet cable to my 6 years old packard bell desktop


As your Laptop itself doesn't have a ethernet card, you can't connect it. But I have a solution, you can buy a USB Ethernet Adapter, which you can buy for a cheap price and you won't need to open up your laptop or any stuff like that. Just plug into your USB port and start working with Ethernet.

It looks like this:

Slow Labtop


First thing to do here is to run a good anti virus scan like Avast and also a anti malware software like Malwarebytes to make sure the slow computer is not cause by a virus or any malware on it then after that better remove also some unnecessary software on your computer to free some memory/RAM and that will make the computer much faster as the last option to make it fast is to add a RAM/memory on it...
