My computor is running slow and freezing up.


Try freeing as much memory as possible to correct the problem.

turn off any programs running in the background by checking the ICONS in the lower right side of the screen near the clock area. use your mouse and right click on any pictures shown there and choose "exit" or "close".

then run disk clean. If you are using win xp, go to start, programs, accessories and then system tools. Slide over to clean desk and click on it.

It will ask you if you want to clean "C" drive - this is fine!

Check all the boxes when the window asks which files to handle. Use the arrow key and make sure you get them all. Then click ok.

When its finished running then run disk defrag.

go to start, programs, accessories system tools and then disk defrag. you want to defrag "c" drive and click the degrag button at the bottom to start it.

this may take a while to complete. when finished, reboot the pc. Then go to windows update and run a scan to update files. Install the updates, restart one more time and this should correct the problem.

I have a dell dimension b110 with Windows XP (i no longer have free tech advice from dell) I have tried evey soultion given to me by microsoft solutions and all the stuff it tells me in my own manual but...


Go to start, then run and type in msconfig then choose the startup tab from the box that appears. Everything that is ticked in here starts when you start windows xp that is why the pc is Sooooooooo slow, all you need running is your AntiVirus software if you have any! so untick everything except the AV software then click apply and then close, it will then ask to restart. Upon restart you will get a message about system configuration just tick box saying don't show this again and click OK. Everything should hopefully now be a whole lot quicker.

I get the message c:PROGRA~1MYWEBS`1ar.binM3PLUGIN.DLL when I start up Vista. What does it mean and how do I fix it?


Some people call this program spyware , my web search can really slow down your browsing,

click on the start to see if you have the run command if not right button click over the start button area , select customise then look for the enable run command or use the CMD Shell.

Now type msconfig within the run command window

now goto startup tab you will find mywebs etc , unselect it , please take great care here,

Click Apply , close then reboot,

Monitors


Your monitor's driver is probably corrupt. You need to go to the manufacturer's website, and redownload it.
