    Is this a work PC or home PC. If it a work PC and the machine cannot find a domain controller, it may be logging you on with a temporary profile, and thus not saving anything.

Go to this link and download the file: http://download.avg.com/filedir/inst/avg_arl_ffi_all_100_110314a3613.zip. Unzip it to your flash drive if possible. Restart your computer and when the screen that says dell comes up, look for something that says "Boot Devices" or something along those lines. There should be an "f" key next to it and you need to press that key before your computer start to load up windows. This will boot off your flash drive and the program you downloaded earlier will scan your hard drive for viruses and should remove as many as it can find. You can get more information on how to use this program by going to http://www.avg.com/us-en/avg-rescue-cd#tba3.

Yahoo messnger do not open


'This happens when yahoo messenger application file/s is/are corrupted or missing or damaged. The only solution is reinstall the program since it's the safest and moreover we don't save or loose anything doing this. But before you re-install it, please uninstall the currently installed version, restart your computer and download the latest version from the link below:
yahoo messenger u.s. version
After the download is completed, run the program and follow the onscreen instructions, it may take some time since the installation files are going to be downloaded from the website.

Good luck.

I am trying to download the Adobe Player and the system is not letting me


Check a necessary messages/command why you can't even download Adobe Player to your system.

There are many basis why your system wouldn't have you to download such files.

Use any programs that can support you to download this freeware such as download manager.

Download the program "Revo Uninstaller" from www.download.com it is a free program that searches out every little nit of a programs existance and snuffs it out. One of the best programs I've seen for uninstalling retail garbage. When you install it and run it. It will give you a listing of all programs currently on the machine, highlight the one you want to get rid of and click on uninstall. Choose option (4), this will search the registry and get rid of everything. The original programs uninstaller will run first, let it do its thing even if it fails, hit ok and Revo will take over from there. Do not let the original program reboot, click no and continue with the Revo program. Click yes to get rid of everything each time you are asked. When it is finished it will tell you.
