3- go to startup tab.
4- disable some installed software (like yahoo messenger or ID Manager etc) in start up but be careful not to disable windows applications.

Laptop is so slow when closing down


If you have not installed anything, any programs or games,
anti-spyware ,anti-virus, and nothing set to auto. Then you just might have registry errors.

But if you have installed anything, some can hang on.

There is a registry hack to let it shutdown and close anything running quicker.

in XP & Vista

HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Control Panel/desktop

Double click on desktop,
in the key field, find (wait to kill app timeout) double click on it
and (edit string will open ) if it says 5000- reduce to 3000.
Says 3000- reduce to 2000.



In windows 7- it in a different place.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CURRENTCONTROLSET\CONTROL

Double click on control and in key field -double click on (wait to kill service timeout) if 5000, reduce to 2000.


***** Set a restore point before you ever edit the registry******

Toshiba config free software is blocking the internet connection from coming through. what should i do?


XP - Start -> control panel - add/remove programs and uninstall it.

Vista - Start -> control panel -> program features and uninstall it.

Let windows manage your wireless and wired networks. I promise it is much easier.

4) Turn off laptop, Remove battery , Remove AC adapter, Press power button for 2 minutes. Put both back on. Turn on laptop.

5) Run virus scan and check for malware and other virus related issues. If anything is found delete the infected files.

Vista not updating and unable to open control panel and display properties


1) Launch services.msc from a run command
2) Find the SLUNotify service & stop it
3) Find the Software Licensing service & stop it (it may say that ReadyBoost needs that service to run; stop it anyway)
4) Restart both services, starting with Software Licensing

That's all. No reboot needed.
