Re: keep getting blk box...

The black box may be a programme starting to run an update on screen, but the driver is corrupt or the internet connection and is halting the pc, but, could you expand a little as you have put most of your problem in the subject and not in the actual post.

My commputer is very slow could you help me speed it up?When opening a program it takes 10-15 mins gpr a program to open.

You probably have a number of viruses on your computer. My suggestion is to download these two programs and uninstall your current anti-virus software (if any).

AVG Free:

AVG is a great anti-virus program that will always be running and protecting you.

Maleware Bytes:

You will want to run this free program as soon as you download it. It will remove any viruses on your computer. This is a great tool to use about once a month to make sure your computer is clean. Do a full scan and wait for it to complete. If you have completed the steps above and still have the problem, you will need more RAM. RAM is temporary memory that your computer uses when it is on. If you have very low RAM, then you will have a very slow computer.

    The problem is with "start-up" When windows starts up, several programs starts up too which causes the system to "freeze-up" and I am unable to go any farther without waiting an extended period of time at...

    When your computer is booting up press F8 which should take you to windows safe mode, in which only the necessary programs start up. after it boots Click start, Run, then type msconfig, press enter from there you can disable the programs that you dont want to start' just untick the check box. If your using Windows 7 click start and in the search bar type msconfig, when it shows up click it, the do the same, when you are finished click apply, when it reboots the programs you turned off will not start, you will get a popup that says something to the effect of msconfig, just click, Don't show this message again, and you should be good to go. If you want to re-enable some of the programs just go in and re-tick the box. Hope this helps

    Emachines T3302 can't open programs

    If the programs have freezed, it might be due to a hard drive problem. And if all the icons disappear means explorer.exe is encountering a problem. Did you do a virus scan recently? Check your hard drive also.
    You can check your system with these two online scanners.
    Download one of them. These are the current best AV suites available for desktop products.
    Right click on the taskbar and get the Task Manager
    Go to processes. In the menu, select View->Select Columns->Add a tick to Virtual Memory Size.
    Then expand the Task Manager window and Check the VM Size. It might be one of the reasons caused the freezing. Check which application use VM the most. By adding more Virtual memory will prevent this, if this is the case.
    Otherwise Right Click on My Computer icon and go to Manage. Then from there go to Event Viewer. Under the category of System and Applications you can find related errors. Check them.
    If you come up with those data we can guide you more precisly
    And coz its old better do a cleanup. Defrag the hard drive using control panel. Do a disk clenup by going to properties window of each partition. Do a physical cleanup also. Remove dust and any loose connections.
    Have a good day.

    I keep getting a box that pops up say that consent for UI has stopped working.. I'm unable to uninstall programs on my laptop. I have vista.. how do I fix it?


    This is a known problem in windows vista (it is actually a security feature)

    You can do either of following:
    1. Disable UserControl from control panel.
    2. If above doesn't works then change the registry settings [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System --> EnableLUA = 0]
    3. if this even doesn't works, then, reboot your pc in safe mode (continue press F8 number of times after finishing booting screen on reboot, you'll get safe mode) and disable User control from control panel.

    Hope this helps.

    hi dear

    Through the All Programs menu:
    Click Start.
    Point to All Programs.
    Point to Accessories.
    Point to System Tools.
    Click System Restore.
    Follow the instructions on the wizard.
    Creating a restore point can be useful any time you anticipate making changes to your computer that are risky or might make your computer unstable. If something goes wrong, you select the restore point you just created and Windows XP undoes any system changes made since that time.
    Create a Restore Point
    Open System Restore. (See step-by-step instructions above.)
    Click Create a restore point, and then click Next.
    In the Restore point description box, type a name to identify this restore point as seen in Figure 1 below. System Restore automatically adds the date and time that this Restore Point is created.
    Figure 1. Creating a restore point
    • To finish creating this restore point, click Create.
    • To cancel restore point creation and return to the Welcome to System Restore screen, click Back.
    • To cancel restore point creation and exit the System Restore Wizard, click Cancel.
    To view or to return to this restore point, from the Welcome to System Restore screen of the System Restore Wizard select Restore my computer to an earlier time. Then select the date you created the restore point from the calendar in the Select a Restore Point screen. All of the restore points you created and you computer created on the selected date are listed by name in the list box to the right of the calendar.
    Note System Restore does not replace the process of uninstalling a program. To completely remove the files installed by a program, you must remove the program using Add or Remove Programs in Control Panel or the program's own uninstall program. To open Add or Remove Programs, click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Add or Remove Programs.
