Question about Computers & Internet
When I open Windows Media Center or IDM my netbook be lag. But sometimes, when I surf the internet it be lag too. I'd scan for viruses many times on my netbook but it doesn't work. I hope that anyone can help me to solve my problem.
It is most likely becuase of the ram. If you have 32bit software you can upgrade it to 4gig of ram, any more and you will need 64bit. what is your processer etc?? netbooks arent really all that for speed to be honest though

the ultimate solution of your problem is to reinstall the windows operating system of your system. I am sure this will resolve the issues.
After install installing the OS, you should install all the drivers.
May this help!

Intermittent problems can be difficult to nail down.
See if anything is failing in Event Viewer.
Click Start > go to My Computer , right click on it , go to Manage. Expand Event viewer and click on Applications.
These are sorted chronologically so look to see if there are any red ! around the time it is supposed to be recording.
If a particular app is failing to load or crashing, you can reinstall it and see if that does anything.
If not you can use a program to manually wake up the PC and execute the program. This is freeware program I found that has alot of options in it.

SOURCE: Dell Media center
go to Dell.com........go to drivers and downloads.......check to see if there is an update for the media center from them if there is download and install. When media starts up just reduce it so that you don't shut down in order to get any updates for media center. If Dell doesn't have one try Windows updates and see what updates they have for your system. If you have any questions just ask and I will answer as soon as I get it.

The problem can not and will not be solved by a reinstall of the operating system or a reinstall of messenger. The issue comes from a security update from Microsoft. Go to this link to a blog written by a member of the microsoft Media Center Security Team, it has a couple of easy solutions to the problem. Click on the Registry fix downloads for whatever option you want to use. The fix, in a nutshell, is to either ban the security update from media center OR to stop messenger from being used in media center. Personally, I have no need for messenger let alone using it in media center. Good luck!

Windows Media Center is the home entertainment hub on a Windows computer.
With Media Center, you can play live television, songs, DVDs and slideshows.
It is preinstalled on Windows XP Media Center Edition, Windows Vista Home Premium/Ultimate Edition and Windows 7 Home Premium, Professional, Enterprise and Ultimate editions.
From time to time, users run into issues trying to play audio or video files, or with an extender connected to Media Center.
Extenders are devices that allow you to "extend" the Media Center onto a TV screen or larger display. The Xbox 360 gaming console is an example of an extender.
Launch Windows Media Center from your computer's Start menu.
Scroll down to "Music" on the Media Center home screen.
Select "Music library."
If you find an empty folder under "Music Library," navigate to the folder on your hard drive that stores your music file and add it to Media Center's library.
If the problem isn't an empty folder, look at the file extension on the music file that won't play. Media Center can't play files with unknown or incompatible extensions.
If you find a questionable extension, skip that file. Click once on another file with a different extension, one you know is compatible with Media Center, and then click "Open" to test if you can play that one.
Media Center will play MP3, CDA, WAV and other music file formats.
Open Windows Media Player from the Start menu if you receive a codec error while trying to play either audio or video files.
If you open the file in Media Player, the codec will download automatically.
You should then be able to play the file in Media Center.
Troubleshoot your firewall settings if a Media Center extender doesn't work.
You'll have a problem using an extender if Windows Firewall blocks it.
Go to "Control Panel" from the Start menu and double-click on "Windows Firewall."
Click on "Allow a program or feature through Windows Firewall." Click to check "Media Center Extenders." Click on "Apply."
Check external speaker cables to make sure they're connected if you can't hear any sound. Check the computer's volume settings by clicking on the "VOL+" icon at the bottom right corner of the main Media Center screen to make sure the volume is not turned off or down too low.
You may need to reconfigure your speakers if you're having volume or sound issues.
Scroll down to "Tasks" in the Media Center home screen and select "Settings."
Click on "General" and select "Windows Media Center Setup." Click on "Set Up Your Speakers." Follow the on-screen prompts to reconfigure your speakers.
and you should run the chkdsk utilty
You could run the chkdsk disk utility
click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which will scan for and attempt to repair any bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive
or an easier way i have found to run the chkdsk utility
click start control panel administrative tools computer management ,disk management right click on your drive select properties click tools you should see click check now click start two boxes
automatically fix files and scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors place then a tick in both boxes then select check now,start should schedule this task when restart
have no input while the chkdsk utility is in progress any input may further damage your computers operating system and hard drive.
hope this helps
hope this helps
