SOURCE: Cannot finish disk defrag

Hi!

Seen that before! microsofts defrag tool isent the best one if i may say so. If you have any programs running in the background it wont finnish, so you can either stop all running programs manualy and the defrag will finnish, OR you can Use another defrag tool,
Here are two:
O&O Defrag is one of the best, but its not free:

Auslogics Disk Defrag is a good toll and its free:

Now, make your chioce and enjoy a good defrag tool:)

Good luck

Crome not opening


There can be several reasons why Google Chrome may be crashing on your computer. One of the main reasons can be your browser user profile is corrupted. You can try creating a new browser user profile and see if that resolves the issue. To do this, you can follow the steps below:
1. Exit Google Chrome completely.
2. Open Windows Explorer by pressing Windows key + E simultaneously.
3. Go to the address bar of Windows Explorer and enter the following address:
For Windows XP users:
%USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\
For Windows Vista/ 7/ 8 users:
%LOCALAPPDATA%\Google\Chrome\User Data\
4. Locate the folder called "Default" in the directory window that opens and rename it as "Backup default."
5. Try opening Google Chrome again. A new "Default" folder is automatically created as you start using the browser.

Whenever i start google chrome,it shows a message"whoa,google chrome has crashed,restart now?" please tell me,how to repair it.i have already reinstalled it,but same problem appeares......please...


Try uninstalling again, and after uninstalling, remove the 'Chrome' folder from the application data folder.

If you are using Windows 7, the folder will be located at:
C:\Users\(USER)\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome

Substitute "(USER)" with your user id. For instance, if your user id is 'Fred' then your folder would be at:
C:\Users\Fred\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome

If you are using Windows XP, the folder will likely be located at

C:\Documents and Settings\(USER)\Application Data\

Delete only the 'Chrome' folder, and not any other such as googleearth.

If you're unsure of what you're doing, you may also rename the folder to something like 'wasChrome', that way the folder isn't available to the future Chrome installation, but is still 'there'.

Once you've gotten rid of the Chrome folder, reinstall and this may solve all your problems.

Chrome is not shiney and won't uninstall or install


You can remove Google Chrome like any other Windows program. Follow these steps: Click the Start menu on your computer taskbar. 
Select All Programs. 
Select Google Chrome. 
Select Uninstall Google Chrome.
Click the Yes button in the confirmation dialog box.

The uninstall process will begin and all your Google Chrome browser and application shortcuts will also be removed. 
Alternatively, you can double-click Add or Remove programs in Window XP's Control Panel or Programs and Features in Windows Vista, select Google Chrome in the list, and click the Remove button.


Google Chrome leaves behind your profile information in case you wish to reinstall in the future. To delete this information, go to \Documents and Settings\<user>\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome in Windows XP or \Documents and Settings\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome in Windows Vista.
