Yes there is follow this instructions:
How to format your hard drive and re install your operating system.
in order for you to do this you have to (before you format)
1. make sure that you have your recovery cd's or a cd/DVD with your operating system (windows or Mac)
2. try to back up all your information to an external Hard drive or DVD's depends on how much usable information you may have.
3. try to hand pic your files to back up because if you do an auto back up you will end up with the same problem again.
-- to do a back up copy all your needed files to an empty folder and then burn them to DVD's or copy to an ext. HD.
4. after you do that (if you have your recovery cd's) insert #1 and restart your computer it will tell you to press any key to start from cd do that and follow directions.
5. when the program shows your partitions go ahead and delete them all, you need to end up with one
6. when you see just one partition go ahead and click continue and it will install your new operating system
7. if you have more than 1 cd it will ask you to insert the next one and so on.
8 after it finishes installing, get the cd out and run the setup process like if you've got a brand new computer, type the information and keep clicking next.
9. at one point you would be on the windows screen and that is it you have a brand new operating system.
Note: take in consideration that when you follow this process, you erase EVERYTHING from the system including files and programs so after you do this you are going to have to re-install all your programs and copy your docs. back to the pc.
**** If you don't have the discs
check under start-(all) programs - start up- recovery- disk creation. that (if you have it) will help you to create your recovery disks try to use 2 dvd's if posible if not you may have to get a windows cd to re- install and install drivers and apps.
so to do that you nay need an external DVD rom.
if you don't have one then go to start-(all)programs-accessories-system tools-system restore. after you access this function select the earliest restore point so your computer will go back to that date (this does not change your files) and it takes between 15 mins. to couple of hrs.
if it works for you don't forget to
rate me

thx

Hi,
If you got a disk with the pc or a D drive on it - with reinstall disk that came with it - YES it is easy to fix. If you format and reinstall or install windows with an upgrade etc.
Reinstalling the operating system on your mini is only as easy as access to the disk and the DVD or CDROM after that it is simple. If a reinstall what came on it - it is free and easy - if you have to buy a disk then that should be the only expense. Let me know if you need more help or a operating system such as XP.

Do you have anti-virus software installed? If not, you may be infected, and your system is being used by the virus to send out spam e-mails.

Movi edit pro 15 plus burns realy slow


hi Richard, I found that too, also, when the DVDs had finally burned they all ended early, mostly just half a second or so, sometimes they would only burn say 45 seconds, even though the timeline ( the blue line above the tracks in edit screen) was stretched way past the end. Also it wouldnt upload to You Tube. What we've done, my mate and I, weve downloaded Live Movie Maker, you go to Microsoft site and download , I cant remember, its either Windows Live essentials, its something essentials anyhow,you have to download the whole package but it downloaded easily. I just googled movie maker. the old Movie Maker wont work with Windows 7, but this new one does, we re did all 13 movies of our songs, using the Magix movies we had already made as reference, and they burn easliy to DVD and they upload to YouTube really easily too. We are using MP4 clips, and it accepts those too. We had so much trouble with Magix ive now deleted it altogether and will go on with WindowsLlive Movie maker.

You can run software that says it is designed for WindowsCE. This is not the same as full Windows (xp, vista, 7) so normal windows programs will not work.

My Netbook is slow than usually,, how can faster it?? Acer Aspire One 532h-2Bb


#1 Make sure your laptop is free from virus, spyware and trojan. A virus or spyware can make your laptop run slow or even damage the whole system. Run a security scan to find out if there are infection files hidden in the system. The slow laptop would be fixed by eliminating the virus.
#2 Remove obsolete programs to release more hard drive space. Laptop slow problem sometimes would be caused by the less hard drive space. To optimize your slow laptop, you can try to delete those unneeded programs, files from the hard disk especially the system disk.
#3 Empty the Recycle Bin to retrieve more system resource. Your laptop slow symptom maybe arises due to the deleted files in the Recycle Bin. If you forget to empty the Recycle Bin, those files in fact still exist on the hard drive and keep eating up your laptop system resource so that the laptop will run slow.
#4 Scan and fix Windows registry. Do you know how important registry is in Windows system? Corrupted, invalid or malicious registry will slow down your laptop and make it run unstable. You would receive many error messages such as dll errors, Internet Explorer errors or blue screen of death in the using of laptop. Thus, it is necessary for you to fix your slow laptop by cleaning registry errors.

Try deleting all unwanted files like Temp files, disk clean up, disk defragmentation.
