I have recently had internet explorer 11 installed I need to reset it


Don't try to reset a program. There are nor reset buttons for programs. If you have trouble with a program like IE 11 , try to reinstall it, Or just put in your Windows DVD restart the computer and say you want to install windows. Windows sees there is already a version on the computer and will ask you to install windows, or to repair the existing version. Chose the last one, repair.

Other programs, you could reinstall and then reinstall from scratch, But IE is one of the programs you can't uninstall.
Never try to delete programs in windows, because you could delete the main program, but lots of extra files and links, can stay active, missing the main program. But also the registry, will have unused entries, that can't find the programs they are pointing to.
So in Windows, if you don't want to use a program, uninstall is the only way to get it from your computer.

  • Close down the program entirely that threw the R6205 runtime error message. Press "Ctrl-Alt-Delete" and select "Start Task Manager."
  • Click the "Processes" tab and click on the "Image Name" column header. Scroll down through the list of programs and check to make sure the original program that gave the error message is not on the list. Click on the name of the program if it is in the list and choose "End Process."
  • Close the task manager window and click the Windows "Start" button. Select "Control Panel" and choose "Uninstall a Program" under the Programs section. Select from the list of currently installed programs the program that caused the error and click "Uninstall.
  • Click on the Windows "Start" button, type "cleanmgr" into the Search field and press "Enter." Click on "Files from all users" if it asks and select "Continue." Choose the drive where the program was installed, check the boxes next to "Temporary Internet Files," "Temporary Files," "Recycle Bin," "Downloaded Program Files" and "Setup Log Files." Click "OK" and select "Delete Files."
  • Wait for the program to finish cleaning the files on your hard drive. Re-start the computer. Insert the installation CD for the program you deleted earlier or go to the website of the manufacturer and download the program again. Install the program.
  • Open the software program by double-clicking on its desktop icon or clicking on the name of the program in the "Start" menu under All Programs. Attempt to use the program to make sure the run time error message does not appear again.

My laptop is sort of running slower and I wondered if it was because my space is almost full on my laptop? And I also wanted to know if I can do anything to make it go back to normal. One other thing is...


First of all, simply delete your browsing history and cookies. Websites will sometimes download cookies or copies of their pages to your hard drive for faster loading later. The unfortunate thing is that this can slow down your pc. Using your browser, delete your browsing history, cookies, and all offline content.


If your computer takes a long time to boot up, take note of how many programs you have loading on start up. Pay attention to the bottom right of your screen and watch the icons. Having a large amount of programs loading on start up will make your boot times considerably slower. Open these programs and tell them not to start on start-up, or simply delete them if you don't use them.


Sometimes spyware or other malware will be downloaded to your computer and can adversly affect performance. I suggest downloading a spyware deleting program like Lavasoft's AdAware. It is free and reliable. When you use it, make sure that you update the definitions each time to make sure you search for the newest spyware. Try running the tests at least once a week.

Hi, How can i restart my lap top after i was deleting a program it stopped working, it doesn't want to start or to shut off


Nermine,
The program you were deleting, wasn't windows right.
Try this.
remove battery and power supply. that should turn off your unit.
put them back in... and press F8 as it is booting..
This is SAFE Mode in windows. If you boot up in that mode.. then try rebooting and boot normally.
