Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC

1 Answer

Need to close program preventing shutdown or go ahead and force shutdown, which I am unable to close.

Every time I try logging off, I get message, need to close program preventing me to log off or do I want to force closure. Also I get message from problem trying to recover web page. The problem, is because of a long running script It then asks if I want to close script, of course I say yes, but it always pops back up. The program is taskhost exe. which I have found, I think it was in task manager, trying to figure out what it does, if I need it, or if I can close it. But, afraid to close it, because I didn't understand the definition, and didn't know if it was important to be running

SOURCE: computer has viruses which might be why it has a the blue screen

Try entering safe mode and doing the virus scan:

  • Switch on your PC
  • Before the Windows Logo screen appears press F8 to get the startup options menu
  • Chose Safe Mode
  • Once your computer boots, run AVG and let it remove all the viruses. Reboot and it should go into Windows as normal.You might have to rerun the scan a few times to get rid of everything but it should do the job.

How important is the information on your computer? Sounds like you might have to do a complete recovery using your manufacturer disc

Why does my computer almost always come up with a black box say something to the effect of "Task Manager is closing background programs......" when I try to shut down?


There are many "processes" that run in order to provide services to the user and the application programs you install. I've seen system with as many as 85-100 processes running with no actual applications open. Occasionally, these processes take extra time to close down if there are other processes preventing them from doing so immediately at shutdown. To avoid corrupting the processes, the OS alerts you, the user to the extra time needed so you don't think there are any problems. You may have the option to force them closed, but unless you are willing to risk a corrupted file, doing so is not wise. Be patient and wait. This is a normal occurrence that will happen from time to time.

I have a Dell, recently (this week) when I turn it on I get a black screen with a message regarding the AC power can't be found but once I hit F1 it takes me to my usual screen to log on to my computer....


Two things that may be wrong here. You may have a power supply problem which requires a replacement and the other is a keyboard problem. Sometimes when the keyboard is defective, certain keys continue to be depressed and therefore forces the computer to process those commands. Therefore, slows down the computer.

I have a program(taskhost.exe) which I can't close, and is preventing me from logging off, or shut down my PC


Taskhost.exe is part of windows. killing shouldn't affect anything critical. It's function is to run script that need to run at certaint times. low priority stuff. Recomend you run antivirus and anti malware software. also run windows update. those 3 things tend to find the majority of issues. then open your control panel and look through the add programs section and see if anything has been installed that you don't want. Many time programs install other programs that will cause your computer to have issues.

Hi. my computer won't log off, shut off, or let me close a tab/window What do i do??


press the Ctrl+Alt+Delete at the same time... depending on the computer and its age varies how long it will take to bring up this "task manager" window. Then you can click on the program thats open that locked your computer up and click "end task" to force it to close. Or you can simply press and hold the power button on the comp and force a shutdown but then you can lose anything you were working on that you didnt save. Simply restart it after it shuts down. Good Luck

Yahoo sayi been sign out because i sign in on a different computer or device


Thats happens for exactly two reasons
1. (the most common) when u are Online on Yahoo Messenger and you are checking your email in a browser.
2. Someone else uses your id and password to log on to your account.

If that happens try to change your YM password, and be very carefull where u are using the account. Never check the box "Remember my id and password ", do not log on on unsecure/unknown PC. ( some hacking software may be installed on unknown/unsecure PC like keylogger who hunts for any accounts logged on the victim PC)

Unable to access program


Try pressing Ctrl+Shift+Esc to bring up task manager. Then on the top tabs, find the tab that says "Processes" and click it. Find the name of the program you are trying to delete under the Image Name. If you find it, click it and then click "End Process". Click Yes when the message comes up. If you don't find it, check the description (for Vista only).

The other way to do this is to log off and then log back on. If it still won't delete after that, try creating a new Limited User account, and then log onto the new account. Delete the file from that account. Log back on to your regular account and delete the Limited User account. Tada!

Good luck!
