    Thanks for answering me b-dawg...This error message pops up every time I try to delete any files and sometimes even emails. When I reboot, it go's away but when I do reboot, it takes a very long time, about five minutes and I have DHL. This isnt normal...Something is jamming it up but what?? I tryed system restore several different points, it didnt help. I tryed disk clean-up also, but still didn't help.

    somewhere along the line a program or programs you tried to un install would not. you actually need to reinstall them then uninstall them again... how have you been uninstalling programs ?

Can you open task manager ? When this msg come dont terminate it. Open task manager and watch which process is holding that error. Kill this process. Try to erase another file. If it happen again, you are attacked by a great virus. There is one solution without installing OS again. Scan your HDD with another PC which have a recently updated virus scanner. Keep informing.

How do I delete a program and icons from my tool bar? Sometimes when I turn off the computer, it says that "others are logged in to this computer..." What does this mean?

Do you mean programs from your IE browser toolbar.?
If you do then to remove them you right click on the toolbar and untick the program you dont want.
To remove it completely you need to go to the control panel on your pc and to add/remove programs and uninstall.

Others logged on..
If someone else has a user profile, and is using your computer. If they dont LOG OUT, but just LOG OFF (or switch user) , then that session is still in memory and the programs they may have been using are still running.
If you try to switch your computer off without everyone LOGGING OUT completely, you could loose any open files, or damage any open programs.

Aspire One PC Notebook: i cant not open certain program, it says error , o...

You probably have a virus so everytime you double click even on Local Disk C:\ it will ask you to choose a program.
Download something called mata_virus it's a very nice script to kill the amvo virus and its variants.
Run it and after it's done it will show you the hidden files and folders. Then go to My computer and right -click on C:\ and then click explore.. then look for a file called autorun.inf. Right click and click on properties. Uncheck the "Read only" attribute. and then open it. and you will find the virus name and location. Write it down. Restart the pc safe mode and see if use the search (start - search) and look for that file. Delete it. Then restart normal mode and download an AV, I really like Avira Antivirus - ( and yes it's free - you can see its reviews on Install - update the virus definitions and run a complete scan. I hope this helps. If not, you will need to connect an external CD rom and use something like ERD Commander to restore Windows system Files and use the registry to remove any trace of the virus, but that's is not easy for the regular user, you really have to know what you are doing because If you delete the wrong file, you will damage the Windows installation completely.
Have a good day.

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.

Everytime i switch my laptop on it keeps saying i have logged on with a temp profile;what have i done wrong,it says go to log event for details,where,s that

This issue may occur if the user profile was manually deleted by using the command prompt or by using Windows Explorer. A profile that is manually deleted does not remove the security identifier (SID) from the profile list in the registry.

To resolve this issue, follow these steps:

1. Delete the profile by using the Computer Properties dialog box. To do this, follow these steps:
a. Click Start, right-click Computer, and then click Properties.
b. Click Change settings.
c. In the System Properties dialog box, click the Advanced tab.
d. Under User Profiles, click Settings.
e. In the User Profiles dialog box, select the profile that you want to delete, click Delete, and then click OK.

2. Click StartCollapse this imageExpand this ima, type regedit in the Start search box, and then press ENTER.

3. Locate and then expand the following registry subkey:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList

4. Right-click the SID that you want to remove, and then click Delete.

5. Log on to the computer and create a new profile.

Best of luck.

No start up page just has screensaver

from the black widows screen, hit ctrl-alt-delete. This will bring up a menu. Choose task manager, the In the run box type restore. From the box that comes up choose rsttui.exe. This is the windows restore utility. Follow the steps to restore your system, choose a date from before the issue started happening.
