Try going int Control panel>add/remove program> look for your Symantic program> hit "remove".  When it opens it should give you 2 or 3 choices.  One is "repair". Hit repair.  It might ask you for the install "discs".  Good luck.

If it doesn't give you any other options hit cancel and call your computer guy.

When trying to play a video in full screen computer shows R6025 error and stop playing it


  • Close down the program entirely that threw the R6205 runtime error message. Press "Ctrl-Alt-Delete" and select "Start Task Manager."
  • Click the "Processes" tab and click on the "Image Name" column header. Scroll down through the list of programs and check to make sure the original program that gave the error message is not on the list. Click on the name of the program if it is in the list and choose "End Process."
  • Close the task manager window and click the Windows "Start" button. Select "Control Panel" and choose "Uninstall a Program" under the Programs section. Select from the list of currently installed programs the program that caused the error and click "Uninstall.
  • Click on the Windows "Start" button, type "cleanmgr" into the Search field and press "Enter." Click on "Files from all users" if it asks and select "Continue." Choose the drive where the program was installed, check the boxes next to "Temporary Internet Files," "Temporary Files," "Recycle Bin," "Downloaded Program Files" and "Setup Log Files." Click "OK" and select "Delete Files."
  • Wait for the program to finish cleaning the files on your hard drive. Re-start the computer. Insert the installation CD for the program you deleted earlier or go to the website of the manufacturer and download the program again. Install the program.
  • Open the software program by double-clicking on its desktop icon or clicking on the name of the program in the "Start" menu under All Programs. Attempt to use the program to make sure the run time error message does not appear again.

Computer wont turn on


There is a possibility that your computer may have been too hot which was why it froze. You can also try reinstalling your gpu driver as well as try to close down applications in the background because if you have too many things opened in the background at once it can slow things down.

When i bought the unit I had a desktop running on Windows XP. Now I have Woindows 7. How can get a software upgrade to be able to download my data?


Did you upgrade from Xp to Vista first ?

First, you will want to BACKUP ALL of your programs.

Since you did not upgrade to VISTA, you will LOOSE all of your programs when you upgrade to Windows 7, so be sure to backup all of your programs and files.


If you wish, you can use an external hard drive and a program called WINDOWS EASY TRANSFER to make this task easier.


See the link below for this FREE program.


http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=2b6f1631-973a-45c7-a4ec-4928fa173266&DisplayLang=en


Now, for the fun part! Insert the Windows 7 disc into the computer and start or restart the computer.


Follow the onscreen instructions to completely install Windows 7.


You will now need to reinstall each of your programs.


If you used Windows Easy Transfer, you can use the list of programs that it prints out to be certain that you reinstall all of your programs.


Hope this helps.

The computer has a black screen with just the mouse cursor. no buttons on keyboard work and it wont turn off


Generally when this happens it is because Explorer.exe has crashed, thats the program responsible for your start menu/task bar. You can press ctrl-alt-delete at the same time and click task manager and tell it to start a new program 'explorer.exe' sometimes this will fix the issue, but if its happening when the computer is first turned on it most likely will not. The other option is to press f-8 repeatedly as the system boots up and you will be shown a menu, one of the options of which is 'boot into safe mode' now if you boot into safe mode fine with a start menu and everything, then the next step is to click start, then in the search bar type "msconfig" one of the tabs will be called startup. This is a list of all the programs that are being run when you first turn your computer on , one of these programs is most likely causing the problem, you can simply remove all of them to start with just to see if it fixes the problem, then go back and add any that you would like to have running on windows boot.
hope this was helpful

Reinstallation CD will not run


When trying to boot from a CD on a Dell system you should put the CD in the CD-ROM tray and reboot the computer. When the initial Dell splash screen appears, you should press F12 (not F2 for BIOS) for a boot menu. In that menu you want to choose the CD-ROM drive. If you have made changes in BIOS you may want to undo them and try this way instead.

Blank screen, can only start programms by task manager


Try to boot Vista into Safe Mode. Tap the F8 Key right after you turn on the computer until you get the Advanced Boot Up Menu
and use the keyboard arrow keys to select Safe Mode. The next screen may ask you to select your operating systm. Select Vista, not the Recovery Console.

Does your task bar and icons appear in safe mode? If so, it might be one of your start up programs that is failing and causing explorer.exe to fail during normal boot-up into Windows and not allowing your taskbar and icons to appear. Click Start and type in msconfig and hit enter then click the Start Up tab and look at all the programs that start up when Vista is starting up. Do Not uncheck anything in the list that you do not recognize as you may uncheck drivers or Vista starting programs that you computer needs to start up Vista properly. Google anything you don't recognize and uncheck any Start Up programs you do not need to start when Vista boots up, like Quicktime player or Adobe Reader for example. (This would also help your boot up time into Vista)

Sounds like explorer.exe crashed. Try opening up the Task Manager again, and Click File > New Task and type in explorer.exe. See if the task bar and your desktop icons appear.

If they appear for a brief moment then disappear again, the Windows explorer.exe is corrupted. Explorer.exe will try to start and then fail again. You may need to use System Restore to bring your computer back to a date and time when the computer was working properly, before the Vista update.

Geek Squad Backup Disks


Usually you just put the first backup disk in the CD/DVD drive and restart/reboot the computer.
If it does'nt boot up you have to go in to the bios settings and change the boot sequence so that it boots from the CD/DVD rom instead of the Hard Drive. When it's finished the restore task you can either leave the bios settings as they are, or change it back to boot from the Hard Drive. Sometimes the backup/restore disks will put the PC back to the same as the day you bought it, which means completely wiping the Hard Drive and reloading the Operating System (Windows) and any programs that where installed at the time the disks were made. If you can run the backup/recovery from within Windows there will be a program in the Programs list on the Start menu. That way you usually keep anything that you have added since you bought the PC and it just reinstalls the Operating System to restore it back to it's original condition.

Hope this helps.
