Question about Computer Processors

Security alert pop-ups every few seconds

My norton system is telling me I have major problems. I have tried to
subscrbe to other systems like McAfee, CyberDefender, and it does not
go through. finally decided to subscrbe to Norton 360 upgrade as the
pop-ups say is necessary. It will not go through due to ''technical difficulties''. This has lasted hours. My bank has called and said some
security system wants to charge my account the $64.+ and I said okay. This also was several hours ago. I am having to type very slowly
as the computer does not want to cooperate any other way. Hel

Try going to and look for "Housecall" Run that and see if it finds anything... If it doesn't go through with that you might have to format the drive and reinstall Windows after having backed up data (.doc files, etc.)

Nod 32 is an anti virus program of high standing and can be used on more windows platforms than many.

It is far superior to Norton and mcafee which in my books are over hyped and can slow systems down.

My crystal ball is in for repair right now so trying to give you any further information is impossible without more of the same from you ?

It would be very decent of you to consider the quality of our experts answers and judge them accordingly as you pass through FixYa.
Thank you

I have a gateway PC133 Pentium 3 512ram (but there is additional 256 installed it cannot support ) and it's 797mhz. Running windows XP. It has been very very slow and windows adjusts the virtual storage...


You really do need to change the motherboard.

What I would advise you to do is to upgrade your


Change it to 1GIG Ram instead, then after installing

it, try defragment your PC (Very Important).

And Also get a very good Antivirus, I always prefer

Avast, which you can easily download from their

website, and it is also very light, as compared to

McAfee, Norton, e.t.c.

All these things are going to take you a lot of time to

finish but I'll tell you the truth...they are worth it.

After all these, you can now optionally improve the

performance of your system by going to this place :

Right-Click on my computer, Properties, then Click

on Advanced, then under the performance tab, click

on settings, and select 'adjust for best performance'.

This will change the appearance of your system and

significantly increase your system speed.

Hope this gives you a great solution.

Sounds on my PC are Choppy/Laggy

there is another FREE program you can try.. try an internet search for AD-AWARE It finds those pesky little memory thieves and oftentimes can eliminate them. I am unfamiliar with your antivirus program.. I would use McAfee or Norton. As for the lagging it sounds like a buffering problem. there is a program I use called System Mechanic that does a pretty decent job of fixing internet and even registry problems. The System mechanic by IOLO ( i think) is a little spendy unless you get in on an offering I got 1 yr service for only 20.00 (vs 40-80 to buy the prog from the store) The musid that is choppy is it while online with a program such as mIRC? if so try #mirc_rainbow maybe the OPS there can help you, just be polite to them and thank them and you will be a welcome visitor anytime you drop by.. Another nice IRC site is #popinn or even #mirc_help (yes the # is neccesary)
Good Luck

2) go to windows explorer right click C:\ go to properties / tools / error check.and D/click it when new box pops up tick little box to repair errors and reboot.
on reboot windows will check system files and fix any errors then restart
Doing either of the above may fix your problem

Pop Ups

you are infected with a virus/trojan. Sorry to say the easiest way to remove it is to reformat you hard drive. Your registery is now infected.

If you want to try to remove it, something like ad-ware or spy bot. It's free, but it will not remove all the trojan on your computer. I seen this happen to alot of people. You can google your problem and see alot of people are in the same boat as you.

Hpsudelpacks.exe stopped working

I had the same problem. When I finally reached HP about this they said that it could be my firewall. You can turn off the firewall then download.

I opted for the second solution, which worked just fine: uninstall, then reinstall the HP update program.
Click START, then CONTROL PANEL, then PROGRAMS AND FEATURES. Select HP Update program from the list, then click uninstall.

When this is finished, then reinstall from Recovery Manager. Go to this website:
It is called “HP and Compaq Desktop PCs - Performing a Software Application or Driver Recover in Windows Vista” if you wish to search it.
Follow the instructions at this site.

You can access Recovery Manager on the menu when you click START.
