Same here, we bought yesterday a Toshiba Satellite and we can not find the control panel. Moreover, when we open the laptop for the first time, it requested an administrator to sign so we signed in with our yahoo email but it doesnt accept our password. It keeps saying you can not sign in. please visit account.live.com to reset your password. we did but still it didnt work. we will returning the laptop to the store today. also, we called toshiba customers service, they dont have any expertise and they just hang up. toshiba customers support sucks.

Computer loads very slow especailly


The more programs and software you put onto a computer, the slower it can become.
However, the first thing to do is defragment your hard drive. Start your computer, open 'My computer' and right click on the C drive icon. From the tabs choose TOOLS and then defragment .. The time taken to defragment depends on the size of your hard drive.
Then go to the control panel and look for Install/Uninstall programs. If there's anything you can live without, uninstall it.
Restart your computer. If things are still slow (and you are confident you have plenty of RAM - memory) installed, suspect a failing hard drive.

New laptop, windows 7 loaded. when trying to access anything this message appears User account control. Do you want to allow the following program to make changes to this computer yes or no


Hi,

It seem Windows 7 is fairly new for you. The User Account Control or UAC started with Vista as it is a security feature to make user aware on what is coming in and going out from your computer to minimize the risks of many things such as virus infection. You may want to disable it. Here's how.

Disable or Turn Off UAC (User Account Control) in Control Panel
  1. To user Control Panel to disable UAC in Windows 7, there are several methods to access the User Account Control settings page:
    1. Go to Start Menu -> Control Panel -> User Accounts and Family Safety -> User Account.
    2. Go to Start Menu -> Control Panel -> System and Security -> Action Center.
    3. Click or right click on Flag icon in notification area (system tray), and then Open Action Center.
    4. Type "MsConfig" in Start Search to start System Configuration, then go to Tools tab, select Change UAC Settings, then click on Launch button.
  2. Click on User Account Control settings link. win7-uac.jpg
  3. Slide the slider bar to the lowest value (towards Never Notify), with description showing Never notify me. windows-7-disable-uac.jpg
  4. Click OK to make the change effective.
  5. Restart the computer to turn off User Access Control.
I hope this works for you. Goodluck!

AVG wont work nor will my laptop


Looks like a certain toolbar feature was included with the AVG that wants to keep starting. Go to Start button, then Control Panel. In the control panel, click Classic View on the left, open up Internet Options and click the Programs Tab on the top of the Internet Options Box that opens up.

Then click the Manage Add-Ons button. Beside the word "Show:", check under each option from the dropdown menu (Add-ons that have been used, Add-ons currently loaded, etc) and in the box below the Show menu, left click to highlight anything that says AVG, then click the round button near the botton to Disable that add-on.

Also check your Control Panel > Programs And Features for anything that mentions an AVG Toolbar as it was possibly separately installed and has it's own Uninstall Listing in the Programs and Features.

If those don't help, you can try this:

You can try to download and install the Microsoft Installer Cleanup Utility. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301

Download and install the Cleanup Utility, then start the program from your Programs list.

***Be careful with this tool...you do not want to remove the wrong things or use the Remove All button, or no/most programs will not work anymore***

After you start the program, browse down the list and anything you see listed with AVG, left click to highlight the item then click the Remove Selected button at the bottom.

Hopefully this removes any traces of the installed AVG.

My T1220 IS RUNNING SLOW


There are a few things you can do to help your computer to run faster. First is do a disc cleanup. Go to "Start", "All Programs", "Accessories", "System Tools", then click "Disc Cleanup", it'll walk you through the rest.

Next go to the control panel and remove programs that are taking up space that you don't use a lot. Browse your computer and delete old fiels saved on your computer you no longer use.

Also, change your start up programs. You could have a lot of programs opening up when your computer starts that you don't use. Go to the control panel, click "Performance" and on the left hand side you will see "Manage start-up programs" and Disable programs that you aren't using often so they won't boot up everytime you reboot your computer.

1.
Click Start.
2.
Point to All Programs.
3.
Point to Accessories.
4.
Point to System Tools.
5.
Click System Restore.
6.
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
1.
Open System Restore. (See step-by-step instructions above.)
2.
Click Create a restore point, and then click Next.
3.
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.

• To finish creating this restore point, click Create.
• To cancel restore point creation and return to the Welcome to System Restore screen, click Back.
