Is the free speedfixtool a scam? is giving a free download through tomorrow 11/09/14. They are saying if they give it away and people try it free and see how good it is they will tell others. Then people will buy it. I want to know if it is something I download and then maybe it does things to my computer that I don't want done. So with it being free people will download and then wish they didn't. Is it a scam?

hi powee;
have you recently installed some device driver?

This error usually occurs after the installation of a buggy device driver, system service, or BIOS. To resolve it quickly, restart your computer, and press F8 at the character-mode menu that displays the operating system choices. At the resulting Windows 2000 Advanced Options menu, choose the Last Known Good Configuration option. This option is most effective when only one driver or service is added at a time.

here is the link;

hope it resolves your problem

SOURCE: very slow computer

A slow computer can be caused by a multitude of reasons, but it is not due to your Internet speed. Typically the most popular reasons are:

1. Too many things running in the background (including viruses, malware, and spyware).
2. A fragmented hard-drive.
3. A messed-up registry.

So, to check how many processes we have running in the background we press Ctrl + Shift + Esc. Once the task-manager opens head over to the processes tab. Here you have a readout of all processes running on your computer. At the bottom of the application is the total number of processes running. Typically for Windows operating systems you want the processes to be between 20-30 for good system operation. The processor (CPU) should also be jumping between 0 - 2 percent usage like a heart-beat while you're not doing anything. If any of your numbers are above the, "norm" you can expect slow-downs.

The first thing I would do to clean up a system is to head into, "Add/Remove Programs" located in the, "Control Panel." Once inside I will look for applications that I know I will not need or have no use for. Once I have cleaned up my system in this method I will download CCleaner (Which I know is free of malicious files). Once installed I will run the cleaner to clean up temporary files sitting on the hard-drive. Afterward I would defragment the hard-drive. In this instance the default defragmenting tool located in Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disk Defragmenter will work. However it is not as powerful as some of the payware versions, such as O&O Defrag. I recommend that you try out the 30-day free trial of O&O just to clean up your system. Once installed find a time period where nobody will be using the system for 3-5 hours. Then run a COMPLETE/Access defragmentation on all hard-drives listed.

Depending on how badly your hard-drive is fragmented you may have to run the same defragmentation process more than once.

After defragmenting I would use Auslogic Boost Speed to clean up more junk files, erase bad registry entries, defragment the registry, and even boost my Internet performance just a wee-bit. I'm not sure if Auslogics provides a free trial for their product, "Boost Speed." But if they do, you should download it just to help speed up your computer.

After finishing all these steps your computer should have sped up dramatically. If not, there's still too much running in the background. Go to Start>Run and type in: services.msc

After pressing OK the services window appears. PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY! If for some reason you stop a critical system-service, restart the computer. It will be started again upon the system restart. HOWEVER, if you disable or set to manual any of the services and they turned out to be critical services, they will not start upon a system restart and you could be looking at a re-install of Windows. So PLEASE research any service before deciding to disable it or setting it to, "Manual."

Within here you can define which services you want stopped, you don't want starting with the system, or you don't want starting at all. Some services are for popular applications installed on your computer such as Ipod services, Yahoo services, etc... Setting them to, "Manual" means they won't start with the system in turn freeing up the processor of yet another process allowing the computer to run faster, if even just marginally.

However, make sure to research any service you are uncertain about as setting it to manual or disabling it could be a very bad idea.

Let me know if I can help you further, or if I need to explain any steps in more detail.

Usually you get messages like this when there have been temporary power outges and your computer gets shut off abruptly.
I wouldn't worry too much unless the computer acts weird when you start it up.

Is Dan Bilizerian giving money away like it says on his facebook page. and it is his facebook page.

No, it is a scam. No one in their right mind gives away free money. And no, it is a cloned page. There can be two reasons for pages like this. Some are called 'Like Farming'. They set up the page with an offer and to participate, you have to Like and Share. Once they have a 100,000 likes, they sell the page to the highest bidder, who then change the name and they have 100K customers!

The other is you become a 'winner', but you have to pay some type of advance fee to get it.

It is mentioned on Facebook Hoax Slayer page.

    Free codes for this device to unlock

    There is, but if you have seen something that says you can get one for free, it will be a scam of some sort. Samsung do not need to give away free phones to make them popular :>)

    you can only get them unlocked if you buy one outright from a Samsung distributor as opposed to a telcom.
