Do i want to run this file published by air software type appl. downloads/google chrome update


If you have visited getsoftfree.com, you may have a virus, malware, adware, a browser hijacker, or pups (potentially unwanted programs).



A. If your computer will boot and you can operate it ok...

Download and install Malwarebytes and Superantispyware (Note: If you can\'t do the download on your machine, do it on a friend\'s, put them on a thumb drive, and install them from it). Then scan your computer with each program, and quarantine anything found.



B. If your computer won\'t boot, or can\'t operate properly after boot...

Tap F8 when you are booting, select "Safe Mode With Networking". Download and install Malwarebytes and Superantispyware (Note: If you can\'t do the download on your machine, do it on a friend\'s, put them on a thumb drive, and install them from it). Then scan your computer with each program, and quarantine anything found.



C. If this process finds malware, to keep stuff like that from coming back, I recommend you get the paid version of Malwarebytes.


Good luck

8 ways to maintain your computer


8 ways to help maintain your computer and devices at work You most likely couldn't do your job without your computer and mobile devices. Everyday you use them to work on files, connect with people, and access resources. Keeping them running smoothly is important to working effectively.
So how do you start?
At work your computer and devices are part of a larger network. Keeping them running means you have to work closely with your corporate IT department. Working with them will save you time, save your company money, and help keep the network secure. This article includes tips and best practices for working with your corporate IT department to keep your computer and devices up-to-date and functioning properly.
Who owns the computer? You use a computer at work, you may take it home, and you might even have a picture of your kids on the computer desktop. The computer, though, isn't yours. It's important to realize that your company owns that computer. They have the right to install patches and updates on a regular basis. By doing so, they can make sure your computer and the network run as smoothly as possible.
"It's common for IT departments to get complaints about patches being put on computers," said Jim DuBois, a general manager for IT at Microsoft. "But it is the best way for companies to make sure the network and computers remain secure."
To further protect their computers, many companies even prevent users from making changes to the settings or software installed on the computer.
Best practices for maintaining your computer Use these best practices to help maintain and protect the computer you use at work. You should contact your IT department to determine their specific policies.
  1. Install all updates required by your IT department. Not installing updates as required by your IT department can expose your company to viruses and other security risks. Some companies even prevent computers from accessing the network if patches aren't installed after a set date. Also, find out whether the IT department wants you to install updates on Microsoft Update . If they do, make it a habit of checking Microsoft Update regularly. You'll save yourself the hassle of the IT department forcing you to install updates when it's not convenient for you.
  2. Install only licensed programs. Make sure that you or your company have a license for any software you install on your work computer. Your company can get sued for having software without a license installed on its computers. For example, installing a program your friend bought could present some problems. Software that you've bought a license for is probably fine, but double-check the license to make sure. Sometimes, software bought for home use can not be installed at work as well.
  3. Don't install different versions of software. Even if you prefer the version of software you use at home rather than work, don't install it on your work computer. You could have incompatibility problems with the software your co-workers are using and with your specific line of business applications. Your IT department may also not be able to make any required updates or provide technical support.
  4. Let IT know when hardware isn't working. Fixing a broken computer yourself could just cause more problems. Your fixes, for example, could make the computer incompatible with the corporate network. Most IT departments have a helpdesk or technical assistance program designed for this type of work. The IT department may have already seen the same problem and have a known fix. Helping your IT department track common computer problems can also help them decide which brand and make of computer to order in the future.
  5. Let IT know when you need something. Giving the IT department reasonable requests and adequate time for planning can help them respond to your needs. Otherwise, you may end up with computer software or hardware you didn't want, which can hinder how effective you are at work.
  6. Don't download programs from Internet sites you don't trust. By downloading programs that may not be secure, you put all the computers on the network at risk.
  7. Be aware of suspicious e-mails. A virus introduced though e-mail may be disguised as a downloadable file. If an e-mail you receive is from someone you don't know, contains strange text, or otherwise looks suspicious, contact your IT department. If you open it, you could potentially cause problems for you and you co-workers. If it does contain a virus, the IT department can ask other employees in the organization to look for similar e-mails.
  8. Use online support resources. Many IT departments have created online internal help sites that could provide an answer to your computer problem. Each day, Help desks typically receive many questions that are already answered at these sites. For help effectively using Microsoft products, you can also use the following resources:

I want serial KEY of INTERNET DOWNLOAD MANAGER version 6.15


Its illegal for anyone to provide serial keys for programs that have retail values set on them there are lots of freeware alternatives on the internet. Download Anything Faster. We all know that internet downloads can take quite a long time to download. If your looking to make your downloading faster - you're reading the right article. Accelerating your downloads is easier than you think. There are a few tricks to speed up any download you have.

The most important thing to consider while trying to download something - remember what kind of internet connection you have. If you have dial-up, you should be prepared to wait awhile. If you have DSL or cable speed internet and it's still going slower than a snail, chances are you have too much going on with your computer. I will explain further! When downloading anything from the internet, you shouldn't have too many other applications or programs running. Keep it simple. Say, your downloading a song - don't keep searching the internet and IMing someone at the same time. Close all other programs running until your done downloading your files. When your download is going way too slow, try hitting Ctrl + Alt + Del and go to your task manager for Windows. A lot of times, programs are still running that you have no idea about. Left click programs and end the task. This can accelerate any download, even if your using dial-up still. If you are using a router for your DSL, you might want to consider unhooking the router and plugging in your modem directly to your computer until your done downloading files. A lot of times, your router strength isn't half as strong as your actual modem connection. You should always consider getting a download manager to accelerate and manage downloading. This can make everything so much easier and faster. I would suggest downloading the Firefox download manager. http://download.cnet.com/mozilla-firefox/3000-2356_4-10208565.html Or orbit download manager http://download.cnet.com/orbit-downloader/3000-2071_4-10600926.html You can pick and choose which downloads you want to accelerate and pause

Removed Pup.funM virus now when I go to any program left click will not work.


Hello,

The only thing I can think your problem may be is something in "mouse settings" is wrong, try looking. You may still have a virus--go online to Kaspersky or bit-defender for a free virus removal tool, double check. Did you get the virus using IE8? try using Chrome or Firefox. Microsoft Security Essentials is no longer supported for XP, download a free Antivirus such as Bit-Defender (the best right now).
I hope this helps

Bbc iplayer wont work afaiter adobie air update .lost my downloads plus wont play any programes just blank screen


Hi Mark, I understand it's something to do with Air version 3.5
I think the interim workaround was to roll back to version 3.4! (if you can find it)
However, can I suggest 2 workarounds?
1) Download your programs for playing on Windows Media Player selecting it from the 'other download options'
I use this method myself, and it doesn't seem to be as hungry for system resources as does iplayer.
2) If you have your computer set up with 'system restore' enabled, then you can roll your system back to a date prior to when you did the Air update. Then, DON'T allow the Air installer to update again :-)
Best wishes!

Windows 7 Keygen won't execute and causes a APPCRASH


Delete any new programs that you have downloaded.


Often, the cause of corruption in a computer system is a bad download that installs harmful files.


If you started to get the Appcrash error on your system after downloading a new program or software from the Internet, it's highly likely you have downloaded a bad product.


Use the "Add/Remove Programs" feature in the Control Panel to get rid of the program immediately.


Uninstall the program that is crashing.


It is possible to fix the program's corrupted files while the program is still installed, but to make sure that you clear the program files completely, it is safest to completely uninstall it from the system.


Run a full scan of your computer.


Your computer should already have antivirus software installed that can scan for corrupted files and either fix them or delete them from your system.


If you do not have antivirus software on your computer, that could be a big part of the problem.


Purchase and install antivirus software as soon as possible.


Once you have the antivirus program installed, open it and click "Scan Computer."


The antivirus scan will isolate bad files and you will be given the option to remove them from your system.


Reinstall the program that was crashing.


Now that the corrupted files have all been removed, your program should run smoothly after reinstallation.


Check for program incompatibility.


If, after a thorough scan and cleaning of your computer and reinstallation of your program, the


Appcrash errors continue, the program you are trying to use may not be compatible with your operating system or other programs on your computer


rather than purchasing an antivirus program use one of these freeware programs

I have bought a GD0608U and my laptop will not let me use it, i don't know what i need for it to work, i have been trying to look for a website but there aren't any


If you're using what I think you are your OS might not support it. I think anything past Windows 2000 won't support it but I could be wrong. Here is a link to the manual (again if it is the product I think it is...Graphic Arts?)

Hope it helps
