Question about ASUS Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My asus laptop is quite new but it will stop typing when I'm in the middle of something. also I get constant popups when I'm clicking on something else.

It doesnt matter if Im online or offline. It seems to freeze up or lock up and I can't get it typing again. If I reboot and wait a few hours sometimes it starts up again but always cuts out so I can't type.

I think you have a Virus or Malware. Download Freeware MALWAREBYTES at:
In the install, UNCHECK the TRIAL PRO version, you want the freeware version. Run a FULL SCAN, DELETE ALL RESULTS, Reboot. Run a Full Scan with your Up-To-Date Anti Virus. ALSO, download freeware CCLEANER at : Use this freeware program to clean the junk from your machine. In the TOOLS section, STARTUP, disable ALL unnessary startup programs. In UNINSTALL remove ALL unnessary programs, Toolbars, they are killers on broswer speed. Open Control Panel, Internet Options, Open the Programs tab, click on Manage add-ons, in Toolbars and Extentions, disable all unnessary Toolbars, in Search Providers, remove all search providers except google, bottom left corner check both boxes.

SOURCE: Repeated freeze in Vista

This could be related to a weak anti virus scanner.Is it new?
try updating to a newer one. Also if a person downloads and installs excessively then your computer will get slow. Go to control panel: add or remove programs and see what you dont need. also try start: all programs: accessories: system tools: etc In that folder you will find a defragmenter which will speed up your computer by compressing files : will not affect you in ANY way, a system clean up which will empty some temporary internet folders : it will ask which one, and other tools. Do NOT try the one called SYSTEM RESTORE! it will reset your system to the last restore point which could be the way it was when you bought it.

system restore does:
restores your system to the last restore point
deletes file that were not on your system then

only se this tool if you want to delete all programs you have and it will be like the way it was when you bought it : unless you have already created a restore point , i doubt it.

good luck

SOURCE: when I'm typing, the cursor moves

To resolve this issue please follow the steps below:-
1) Locate the picture icon called "Synaptics Touchpad" or "Pointing Device" that is located next to the digital time (usually in the bottom right hand side of the screen).
2) Click on the icon with the right-hand mouse clicker and select the option: MOUSE PROPERTIES in the small sub-menu that pops up.
3) You should now see a new window dominating the screen with several options and tabs along the top. Select the "Tapping" tab listed there with the left-hand mouse clicker.
4) When Tapping Selected the menu window will change presenting some new options. There should be an option near the bottom of the menu called "Tap off when typing" Click the box next to this menu option, success will bring up a little tick in the box clicked on.
5) To the right of the "Tap off when typing" option there should be a new sliding controller available with two options on either end (Short ---- Long) and a triangular shaped slider button in the middle of the two. The triangular shaped button needs to be moved to approximately three-quarters to the right (towards "long").
6) Once above step has been completed left click select the "Apply" button on the bottom right hand side of the menu, and then click "Ok" to confirm changes.

Hope this solves your problem :0)

SOURCE: Keyboard freezes while typing

My computer does the same thing. I figured out, however, that rather than shutting the computer completely off and rebooting, I can just close the top. When I reopen the computer and go back to the document on which I was typing, I am then allowed to continue. Hope this helps.

Tips better to back up your files before sending out to technical person for safe keeping. Thanks hope it helps.

I have an ASUS P1001 Netbook, OS XP. When I am typing text, the cursor will sometimes jumps to a previous line, where my typing continues in the middle of a paragraph, or worse, when I am typing text,...

Think you might have (and it's very easy to do when you're typing) touched the touchpad as you're typing- which was probably why the cursor got repositioned. Without knowing the features on your ASUS, I'd look for Windows (assuming it's the OS) Control Panel and Mouse Controls - there usually is something that can be adjusted as to what qualifies as a tap (say, a really light tap versus a hard tap) and fiddle with it. You should be able to get it to work to your liking.

Annoying reminder to renew McAffee

That means that it is installed on your computer. Check under your programs. Also Click start then run then type in MSCONFIG
Go to startup check anything there that would resemble Mcafee uncheck it. Dont worry if something goes wrong there you can always put a check on it again.
Next thing as well try to run a malware checker. Go to as the constant popup is also a malware.

Please message if you need further assistance.

Acer eNet Management

Do you have "What do you suggest I do to stop the alternating messages? It's almost as annoying as popups." I get an alternating popup (actually fade in fade out) message. the alternating message says "Acer eNet Management Internet Disconnected" Here is my solution!!! :)

First 'Right-click on task bar', TASK BAR IS AT THE BOTTOM OF YOUR SCREEN' then click on 'Properties'. Click on 'Notification Area', Click on 'Customize', Look for WLAN(disconnected), Click on it and choose 'HIDE', Click 'OK', then click 'APPLY', then click 'OK' and now you have no more annoying message. TOO EASY MATE ;)
