Evite website keeps freezing up. Both in chrome and explorer. works on another computer just fine. popups have been allowed. cookies and cache are cleared. It seems to freeze up when it's trying to...

Fixing Hardware or Software Issues

  • If the freeze happens every time a certain hardware device is plugged in or switched on, the device itself might be to blame. Check the manufacturer's website for updated drivers for the device, and download and install them to erase any bugs that might exist in your version. Similarly, if the freeze only happens when using one particular application, that program might also be the root cause. Check the developer's website for updates. If the problem persists, uninstall and reinstall the program. This process replaces any software files or settings that may have been damaged or deleted.

Overwhelming a PC's processor or memory by requests can also lead to the computer freezing up. If the issue occurs when large files or complex applications are being handled, shut down any running application or background utilities you don't need for the project you're working on. This frees up CPU time and RAM space. Within individual programs, avoid opening up multiple files or websites at the same time. If the problem persists and if opening multiple large files simultaneously can't be avoided, consider a hardware upgrade
Please follow this instruction.

God bless you

Mere adjustment of PC's date and time at the control panel<br />does not do the magic as most sites would tell you.......<br /><br /><br />RunAsDate is a small utility that allows you to run a program in the date and time that you specify. This utility doesn't change the current system date and time of your computer, but it only injects the date/time that you specify into the desired application.<br /><br />You can run multiple applications simultaneously, each application works with different date and time, while the real date/time of your system continues to run normally.<br /><br />Using RunAsDate<br /><br />RunAsDate doesn't require any installation process or additional DLL files. In order to start using it, simply copy the executable file (RunAsDate.exe) to any folder you like, and run it.<br /><br />In the main window of RunAsDate, select the desired date and time and the application that you want to run. Optionally, you can also specify the command-line parameters to run the program. Press the "Run" button to start the application with the specified date/time<br /><br />RunAsDate Limitations<br /><br /> RunAsDate only works on 32-bit Windows applications. You cannot use it for old DOS 16-bit programs or for 64-bit Windows applications.<br /> RunAsDate will not affect applications that take the current date/time from another source. For example: application that loads the current date from remote serve<br /><br />TO DOWNLOAD<br /><br />visit <a href=""></a>

I can not open and is stuck in the mode where you have the continuous circle like it is trying to open an application

Hold CTRL + ALT + Delete and open the task manager to close the program. If that doesn't work, log-off then log back on. If the program is still hung up and won't open, you may have to unintall and reinstall that program as a last resort.

dentifying the fingerprint readerA fingerprint reader provides extra security for the PC. The VeriSoft Access Manager by Bioscrypt uses the fingerprint reader to identify the user, and controls access to Windows or other secure systems. Instead of typing a User ID and password, you can move your finger across a sensor to logon or start commonly used applications. Verisoft Access Manager can manage all of your different secure accounts and the required user names and passwords by recognizing your fingerprint.On HP notebook PCs, the fingerprint reader is a small metallic sensor located near the keyboard or display. By swiping your finger perpendicular to the metallic sensor you can logon to the PC, a network, or open a program. c00897920.gifBefore you can use the fingerprint reader, you must set up the fingerprint reader by registering your fingerprint with the Access Manager. Set up the fingerprint reader To set up the fingerprint reader to recognize a user, the user must have a logon account on the PC and the account must have a password. Multiple users can be registered for the fingerprint reader if each has their own user account.
  1. In Windows, double-click the VeriSoft Access Manager icon c00897921.gif in the notification area of the taskbar to open the My Identity window. Alternately, click Start > All programs > Verisoft > My Identity .
  2. Click Log On to open the VeriSoft Logon Wizard. Click Next to begin.
  3. Enter the User's Windows password in the Password field on the Introduce Yourself page, and click Next . If you have successfully logged on to Windows, click Finish to close the wizard.
  4. Click Register Fingerprints on the My Identity window, to open the VeriSoft Logon Wizard. Click Next to begin. c00897922.gif
  5. Select a finger shown on the hand graphic, and then slowly swipe your finger across the sensor. One of the squares below the hand graphic will change color when the scan is accepted. A message displays if the scan is not accepted.
  6. Swipe the same finger across the sensor again until all four squares change color, then clickNext to register the finger print. If you need to start over during the fingerprint registration process, right-click the highlighted finger on the screen and then click Start Over .
  7. If prompted to register a second fingerprint, click a different finger on the hand graphic, and then repeat steps 5 and 6.
  8. After using the Registration Wizard to registered at least 2 fingers, click Finish .
  9. To set up the fingerprint reader for a different Windows user, log on to Windows as that user and then repeat steps 1 through 8.
After registering your fingerprint you can log off and then use your registered fingers to log on to Windows. Using Fingerprint reader before registeringIf you swipe your finger across the fingerprint reader before it is set up, the Access Manager opens a logon wizard window and prompts you for informa

A file with xls extension is not opening in my Netbook with Windows Vista Home Premium - what to do?

You need an application that will read the file. That would be Microsoft Excel or Microsoft's free Excel Viewer. The viewer can be downloaded free from Microsoft. It's possible that the file type has been "attached" to a different, incorrect application. Right-click on the file. Select Properties. Look at "Opens with:" If it doesn't say Microsoft Excel or Excel Viewer, click change and browse to the appropriate program file.

Another option would be to download openoffice, a free office suite and set it to be your default xls viewer.
