How to improve pefromance

Hi guys, thanks for your help, i did run the spyboot paid service, which found a lot of errors and infected files... the laptop has 512ram, although i found something i dont know if it affects its performance, has one harddrive divided in C and D. C has all programme files and uses FAT32, D has all data and uses NTFS, should i do something about it? Does defragmenting the disc help speeding it up?
THanks for your help.

Re: How to improve pefromance

The c and d means that there are 2 partitions on the drive either its a recovery sector or just seperate for data....defraging is always good as long as you dont do it too much, delete temp files, run a registry cleaner and your system should do better. All else fails back up your nesesary files and formate the drive and reinstall windows.

Hi! I've bought a brand new Asus laptop and

Hi maruthusumi

Resource file C_SpURsDll not found - SYSTEM FILE CORRUPTION

If in doubt about any aspect of this advice, please feel free to add a Comment or Clarification to this Question. If so, please include information about the model and specification of your computer. Doing so helps us makes faster, more accurate and more assured Remote Diagnostics leading to better quality and more useful Advice, Answers, Guidelines , How-Tos and Solutions.

You also don't say how you installed the Applications, particularly if any of them were downloaded from the internet. If so, the download might have been, corrupt, incomplete or malware infected. Another potential source of corruption to System Files are corrupt, incomplete Updates downloads or interrupted Updates configuration processes.

It would appear that there has been some corruption to your Windows 7 64-Bit System Files.

The first issue to consider is whether all the Applications installed are 64 Bit or 64 Bit compatible. If not, uninstall the applications, but first you have to resolve the problem.

I suggest:

Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore > Restore my computer to an earlier time > select a highlighted date on the calendar to the left and an event in the event schedule to the right that both precede the error > Restore > Restart PC.

You can only safely install MS Office from a genuine MS Office Disc or download it from an Authorised Access, Multi-user Licensed ISO File on an office server. FTP Client Applications are the same. Safe, reputable, reliable online download sources abound, such as

If System Restore does not clear the problem and any applications were downloaded from the web, try running antivirus and antispyware scans to purge any infection found.

If none of the above works you might have to Restore to Factory Default Settings and install your Applications carefully again.

I hope this helps.

I have a virus on my computer that none of my scans can seem to find. I have even done a system recovery to month ago and it is still here. I am in safe mode on my computer right now trying to find help....

The approach for a virus infection depends on what type of infection we are talking about. We need to know first the type of infection or what file is infecting the computer. Check the system configuration utility on your windows by typing msconfig on the run box. Check out the content of the startup and services tabs. Reseach on the entries on what are potentially infections running on your computer. Once you have found out the infection, try to search for entries in the registry editor. Type regedit on the run command. On the Registry editor, right click on computer and the choose search. Search for all entries of the found infection and delete them.
Note: Make sure that you create a restore point prior to deleting entries in the registry editor. One mistake here may make your computer unable to boot. But before creating a restore point, delete all current restore points by going to system properties. (right click on My Computer and choose properties) then on the system restore tab, un-check the box that says enable system restore then click on apply. Then put a check again then click apply. This should delete all previous restore points.

What is rundll 32 and how do i get rid of it

rundll32 is a program that windows uses in order to launch dll (library) files.

Deleting it will adversly effect your computer. (you won't be able to launch many programs)

There are some viruses that infect run32dll, if you are having virus issues I'd suggest running a scanner. If this is just something you've noticed taking up a lot of system resources and running in the background it's not something you want to delete.

Shuts down during converting avi and doing search through spyboot

Depending on how your PC is shutting down, this can suggest a couple of problems.

1.)If you are getting kicked out with a Blue Screen of death and a memory dump, pay attention to the code about 75% down on the screen, that STOP error can tell you what the OS freaked out about and decided it couldn't keep running. STOP errors are actually good, because they give you a chance to know what is wrong, PLUS you know that it is probably just Windows at fault.

2.)If you are just plain getting dropped to full power off, more than likely you are over-heating. You can narrow down this possibility by getting yourself a diagnostic tool like Eurosoft's PC-Check to run a full myriad of tests on your hardware, this may prove a non-OS dependent (Hardware or BIOS) issue. You can also go to to try the CPU Burn-In tool to see if you are just crashing while Windows crunches numbers.
The fix can be anywhere as simple as replacing a burnt fan or running an air duster through your vents, to a software fix like re-installing windows (or trying the switch to Linux !!). There is really only about 3/10 machines that come my way with these problems that have genuinely defective hardware issues, so the chances are on your side, good luck!
