I have a problem with my nec laptop computer , it keeps restarting.. because from my avast alert message it says that theres a hardware error ..please help.

First, there are no details,
What have you done just before the problem happens?
What is your operating system ( xp, vista, seven .) ?

Any way, If you want to remove the anti-virus, do the following:
  • When starting the laptop, press F8 frequently,
  • then, a menu will appear, choose Safe Mode,
  • after a moment, dialog box (asks if you want restore), choose NO,
  • desktop will appear,
  • go to Control Panel > Uninstall programs
  • Choose Avast, and uninstall
  • Then, restart the laptop.

If the laptop booted will without restarting, you can install Avast again.

Please, Tell us your results.
Good Luck

The best free anti virus program you can get is one called Avast Anti Virus. You can download it from easily and use it to scan your computer and remove any threat. Another good application is called spybot search and destroy. This detects and removed spyware and malware. You can get this from the same place.

Desktop computer freezes when on Internet or playing music

Hi there,

This could be because you are running to many programs at once and your RAM cannot cope with it, or it could be because you do not have enough virtual memory on your computer and this is due to the fact that you do not have a large hard drive. This could also be because of a virus.

To try and speed up your computer I suggest you do all the following:
1) Click "Start", "All Programs", "Accessories", "System Tools" then select Disk Cleanup and set your computer to clean up C: Drive.
2)Click "Start", "All Programs", "Accessories", "System Tools" then select Disk Defragmenter and let the computer analyze and defragment itself.
3)Download AVG or similar free anti-virus software and install it. Then let the computer scan the whole computer to pick up any viruses.

Thank you for using FixYa! Have a nice day and please remember to rate this solution.

Warm regards,

Can i repalace AMD athlon by dual core

what cpu you have [in this case AMD based] does not affect you virus protection level. you should get a good anti-virus software.
most of them don't cost much. may i recommend kaspersky anti-virus or NOD32 anti-virus.
if you do not wish to spend money on such software you can always try free anti-virus software. like Avira Antivir available here:
