    simple version,
    leave your computer on all the time so all the programs don't scan and update at the same time at startup
    second click start, msconfig, hit enter click on startup tab, this is a list of programs that start when your computer starts, uncheck programs that aren't needed. Post the ones you have here if you are unsure and I can tell you which ones to uncheck. Restart your pc, a box will appear on the desktop, check the box for don't show this again and click ok

    Download and run ATF cleaner. It is a simple free program to clean up
    trash files

    http://www.atribune.org/ccount/click.php...

    defragment your hard drive. open my computer=> right click my
    computer=> properties=> click tools tab=> defragment now.

    download malwarebytes, save to desktop, restart computer in safe
    mode(hold F8 as soon as it powers up before windows starts, choose safe
    mode) install malwarebytes, run a full scan, don't do anything else on
    pc while it is scanning, it may freeze, if it finds anything, let it
    clean it up for ya.

    http://dw.com.com/redir?edId=3&siteI...

    After
    that, I strongly suggest using either registry booster (made by
    uniblue) or registry mechanic (made by pc tools). You will have to pay
    a little for these but will make a huge difference with your speed
    issues.

    If you want to do anything else let me know, I'll help you out but doing these steps will make a huge difference.

I can not log on- it says we are trying to fix the problem.


One of Facebook's servers is probably temporarily down. Wait about 15 minutes, then try again. If you continue to have problems, try logging on on a different computer or a smartphone (if possible).

Describe your LG k170 signal problem Problem


Instructions
  1. jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep1 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a05/k7/ln/troubleshoot-_a-home-network-1.1-800X800.jpg'); }); Make sure you have run the Network Setup Wizard on each of your computers, even if you have configured it manually. Your file and printer sharing are disabled until you run the wizard at least once.
  2. jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep2 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a05/k7/ln/troubleshoot-_a-home-network-1.2-800X800.jpg'); }); If the problem is that some of your computers appear in My Network Places or View Work group Computers, while others do not, wait about 20 minutes or so and then check again. If all computers still do not appear, and you have older versions of Windows running, like Windows 9x or Me on your network, restart the Windows XP computers, wait for about 3 to 4 minutes then start up your older computers. Wait for a few minutes then check again. If that does not work try booting your computers in various orders.
  3. jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep3 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a05/k7/ln/troubleshoot-_a-home-network-1.3-800X800.jpg'); }); On each of your computers, click Start, My Computer, select My Network Places, and then select View Network Connections Look for the Local Area Network Icon. See if the Icon says "disconnected". If the answer is yes then you have a problem with your cables or your network adapter. Repair before proceeding.
  4. jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep4 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a05/k7/ln/troubleshoot-_a-home-network-1.4-800X800.jpg'); }); Now, look to see if any of your Local Area Connection Icons say "Firewalled" next to them. If you find this problem then Your Windows Connection Firewall might be blocking printer and file sharing on that computer. Go to your Firewall Protection and make the needed changes.
  5. jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep5 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a05/k7/ln/troubleshoot-_a-home-network-1.5-800X800.jpg'); }); Another thing to try is to go to start and right click on My Computer and choose Properties. View the computer Name tab. Each of your computers should have a different name and the same work group name on it. If they do not have different names then you will have to change them. Restart your computers you adjusted and see if this made a difference.
  6. jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep6 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a05/k7/ln/troubleshoot-_a-home-network-1.6-800X800.jpg'); }); You can also try something else by going to each computer and click Start, All Programs, Accessories and then Command Prompt. In the Command Prompt window, type ipconfig and then press Enter. Under the Local Area Command Prompt entry, Windows should show you a different address for each of your computers. If any of your computers have the same address or if the addresses are not similar, then you will need to repair this before proceeding.
  7. jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep7 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a05/k7/ln/troubleshoot-_a-home-network-1.7-800X800.jpg'); }); In the same Prompt Window as above and from only one computer, use the ping command to see if that computer can communicate with each of your other computers. To do this, type x.x.x.x in the Command Prompt Window. You are substituting the actual I.P address of your other computers for x.x.x.x in turn. You should be seeing several Reply from lines each time you do this. If any computer does not respond, then you have a cable or hardware problem. Repair this first then proceed with further tests.
  8. jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep8 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a05/k7/ln/troubleshoot-_a-home-network-1.8-800X800.jpg'); }); Make sure that all of your computers have the same network protocols.
  9. jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep9 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a05/k7/ln/troubleshoot-_a-home-network-1.9-800X800.jpg'); }); If you still are having trouble with your Windows Network you may have to call in a professional or a computer experienced friend to help you.

I am not able to access my yahoo account, showing error code#1, please advise.


1. Clear your cookies and temporary internet files (AKA cache), exit from the browser, then restart the browser.

2. If you are a home user and do not pay for a static IP address, get a different dynamic IP address; do
[Start] > [Run] > cmd > ipconfig
{{write down the IP address, then disconnect from the Internet with}}
ipconfig /release
{{wait a few minutes and then reconnect with}}
ipconfig / renew
{{compare the new IP address to the old to make sure your IP address changed, then try again}}

If you are an office user, try someone else's PC which will have a different IP address.

3. Log into Yahoo through a different country's server. I.e. if you usually log into Yahoo via http://login.yahoo.com/ or http://mail.yahoo.com/ then try http://login.korea.yahoo.com/ or http://nz.yahoo.com/

4. Access your Yahoo mailbox via http://wap.oa.yahoo.com/

5. Use a different browser. Use Firefox (free download from mozilla.com) if you normally use IE or Safari.

6. If you have a web accelerator (mostly an affliction of dial-up users) then try turning it off.

7. If you use a proxy server (mostly a corporate user thing) then try turning it off.

I cant get my router working


    Connect Equipment
  1. Turn off your computer and disconnect the Ethernet cable running from the back of the computer. Plug the cable into the port marked "Internet" on the back of the router. Plug the blue cable included with the router into one of the four LAN ports on the back of the router and plug the other end into your computer Ethernet port. Turn the modem on and wait two minutes. Plug in the router and wait one minute. Then turn on your computer. After two minutes the router should have four status lights glowing on the front panel: power, Internet, wireless and LAN.
  2. Configure Router
  3. Open your Internet browser on the computer. The router will automatically display the Smart Wizard configuration page. Click "OK." On the next page, enter the region where you are located and your wireless networkmag-glass_10x10.gif name (SSID). The default is "NETGEAR," but you should change it to a different name you can easily remember. The name is case-sensitive. Click "Next." Then click "Done."
  4. Configure Computer for Wireless Access
  5. Go to "Start" and click on "Control Panel." Open "Network Connections" and right-click on "Wireless Network Connection." Select "Properties." Then select the "Wireless Networksmag-glass_10x10.gif" tab. Check the box to use Windows for network configuration, then click "Add..." Enter the same SSID name that you entered when you set up the router. Select "Disabled" for data encryption as that is the router default setting. Click "OK." Now try to connect to an Internet website to verify connectivity.
  6. Router Logon
  7. To log on to your router, go to Routerlogin.net. Enter "admin" for the user name and "password" for the password. On the router home page, go to "Set Password" and change the router password. Then choose a security protocol to use that is compatible with your computer's wireless adapter. WPA-PSK is the best choice if your wireless adapter supports it.
