Download and run spybot search and destroy and adaware free. Make sure you update each of the programs definitions before scanning. After you have removed the program you can download and install windows defender which is supposed and protect against spyware. Another thing i do is use firefox for web browsing as i feel its a safer way to browse.

Try downloading and running Spyware Terminator and Spybot Search & Destroy. Both can be downloaded from PC World for free. Be sure to update each program before you scan. If you want to try an online scan, try Trend Micro Housecall, which is free..

NEC VERSA M540 - Performing slow

Try downloading ad-aware. Run it and see if that speeds it up. It is a spyware killer (pop-ups), also clean your hard drive up with a disk clean up option and a degragmentation. If it is still running slow, try a ram up grade.

Transfering photos from my laptop to the frame.

If you can see the photo frame connection in your pc, you should be able to copy the pictures and paste them in the photo frame's folder.

If you already have some photos in the photo frame, look for the containing folder in the photo frame's drive. Save the new pictures in the same folder.

Note: You should be aware that the pictures should be in jpg format. Some photo frames do not accept png and gif formats.

If thats the case, go to "Paint" program in your notebook.
Open the file then save it again using "Save As" to "jpg" format.
Recopy the pictures and paste them in the photo frames folder.

Wife signal too strong..

Hello Ziraffa,

This is a very common problem and I am sure you have noticed too that Wife 1.0 provides no option as to the installation of undesired Plug-Ins such as MotherInLaw 55.8 and BrotherInLaw Beta release.

Many people upgrade from Girlfriend 7.0 to Wife 1.0, thinking that it is just a Utilities and Entertainment program. Thats where YOU went wrong, as Wife 1.0 is an OPERATING SYSTEM and is designed by its Creator to run EVERYTHING!!!

It is also impossible to delete Wife 1.0 and to return to Girlfriend 7.0. It is impossible to uninstall, or purge the program files from the system once Installed!

You cannot go back to Girlfriend 7.0 because Wife 1.0 is designed to not allow this.
Look in your Wife 1.0 manual under "Warnings-Alimony-Child Support".

I recommend that you keep Wife1.0 and work on improving the situation.

In my oppinion I suggest you install the background application "Yes Dear" to alleviate software

The best course of action is to enter the following DOS command:- C:\APOLOGIZE because ultimately
you will have to give the APOLOGIZE command before the system will return to normal anyway.
Wife 1.0 is a great program, but it tends to be very high maintenance. Wife 1.0 comes with several support programs, such as Clean and Sweep 3.0, Cook It 1.5 and Do Bills 4.2.

However, be very careful how you use these programs. Improper use will cause the system to launch the program Nag Nag 9.5. Once this happens, the only way to improve the performance of Wife 1.0 is to purchase additional software. I recommend Flowers 2.1 and Diamonds 5.0!

I hope this helps you, and please rate it so I know that you understand.

Good luck! (You will need it!!)

Need the code for the anti theft device for a 92 saturn

Not at all, the alrm will not cause the anitlock light to come on, try resetting the computer again by taking the positive battery cable off for 10 mins, if this does not work, then you definatly have a problem with the anti lock and the computer may have been over loaded so it did not reconize it until the computer was cleared when she took the battery out.
