How do i make my pc fster


Slow Windows Machine! Try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run and type MSConfig. In Startup tab, uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running. This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when only you initiate. Consider increasing RAM.Uninstall any extras like those pushy toolbars, and add-ons.

HP xw8200 overheating


Overheating is more likely to cause a shutdown. You need to do some troubleshooting. Remove all USB attached devices. Roll back system with System Restore under Safe Mode (press F8 during boot and choose Safe Mode). For Win 7 - Start > Start > Search type System Restore. For XP - Is Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Restore. Now choose a date prior to problem starting. You may have to try a few dates.



Uninstall last program(s) that was installed, again in safe mode.


Disable startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig. In Startup tab, uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running. This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when only you initiate. In fact, in your case uncheck all. TEST.

While tring to install my UM175 modem, I get a message that say OS not supported. What do I do?


The Verizon UM175 installation supports WinXP, WinVista, and Win7 (and you're certainly running one of these three), so the only possible problem you might be having is that you may be running Windows XP, but you're running a Service Pack level that is no longer supported. Most software packages require WinXP to have at least Service Pack 2 installed, and many installations are now requiring WinXP to have at a minimum Service Pack 3.

To determine what Service Pack you're running:
START > Control Panel > System > General (tab)

Microsoft offers "Service Packs", consisting of (free) packages of updates and bug fixes for its operating systems, which are released riddled with bugs, omissions and security holes.
To install the Windows XP service packs that may be needed to allow the Verizon UM175 modem-related software installation to proceed, visit Microsoft at:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/322389

This Microsoft Knowledge Base article mentions Service Packs 1, 1a, 2, and 3, but there is also a 4th.
Windows Vista also has service packs (there are two). If you're running WinVista, the Verizon software may require both. For these Service Packs, visit Microsoft at:

MY MOUSE IS STUCK ON MAGNIFY


I had this problem once. It was because I had held the SHIFT key for 3 seconds, and it had entered disability mode. It's either SHIFT or CTRL.
You could disable it completely in Start -> control panel -> Accessibility options

I can't turn on windows firewall. respons message: windows cant running ics service


The Windows Firewall Service not started.
Now to fix:
1. Click Start > Run > Type services.msc
2. Scroll down to Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS)
3. Double click it.
4. Change startup type to Automatic and Click Start.
5. Click Apply and then OK
6. Reboot.

To reset the Windows Firewall to the factory default state, try this:
Type firewall.cpl in Start, Run dialog.
Click the Advanced tab.
Click the Restore Defaults button.
Click Yes to continue when you see this dialog
Restoring the default settings will delete all settings of Windows Firewall that you have made since Windows was installed. This may cause some programs to stop working.

Alternately, you can use the NETSH command-line to accomplish this:
Open a Command Prompt window and type NETSH FIREWALL RESET
This command resets firewall configuration to default. This provides the same functionality as the Restore Defaults button in the Windows Firewall interface.

Hope it helps.

Note:- If you PC is infected with Malware & Spywarea that disable you have to clean up your PC first!!
