Seems like the software program or something else might have messed up your registry settings.

When you turn on the computer, press F8 to get to a page with options for starting the Operating System. This only applies if you have Windows, preferably XP. Once there, select "Safe Mode with Networking". If you can get the computer to a point where you're able to use it, either run System Mechanic and have it undo the changes it made to your system, or run System Restore from Start -> Accessories -> System Tools -> System Restore.

If you use System Restore, select a point before you did the changes, but recent enough to where you won't mess anything else up.

In the future, be sure to carefully check what each part of the registry being cleaned controls... Too much interference can be bad!

"the component IoloSystemService" Error on Iolo System Mechanic Pro


The "the component IoloSystemService" Error message shows up due improper installation of the System Mechanic Pro. Some of the Iolo dependencies failed to get activated and that is the problem.

Now the only solution to fix it is to follow a thorough uninstallation of the System Mechanic Pro.

For WinXP, you can uninstall it from the "Add or Remove Programs".

Next, once its unistalled do not RESTART the PC.

Now, go to the Registry (press "windows" + R to open the run command and type "regedit").

OR

Click the Windows start button and select RUN. Type REGEDIT on the openfield.

On the left-hand side, expand HKEY_CURRENT_USER by clicking the + symbol next to the entry.
Expand Software.
Expand the iolo folder.
Navigate to the System Mechanic Professional folder.
Right-click on the System Mechanic Professional folder and select Delete.
Click Yes to confirm the deletion.
On the left-hand side, expand HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE by clicking the + symbol next to the entry.
Expand Software.
Expand the iolo folder.
Navigate to the System Mechanic Professional folder.
Right-click on the System Mechanic Professional folder and select Delete.
Click Yes to confirm the deletion.
Close the Registry Editor.
Click Start>My Computer and then navigate to your Local Disk (usually the C: drive) then Program Files\iolo\System Mechanic Professional.
Right-click on the System Mechanic Professional folder and select Delete.
Click Yes to confirm.

How to speed up windows xp!


Everyone has always asked me how'd you get your computer to boot up so quick? well here it is...

After the initial or fresh install of windows xp and all programs your computer may start to slow down. May it be slow on boot up or slow loading a program, there is a small procedure to speed your computer up. You see windows installs a program and usually it is automatically setup to open or run when you turn on your computer they usually end up in the task bar beside the clock. Here is the method to turning all those unwanted programs off and prevent them from open on your future start ups.

-->click start
-->click Run...
-->type msconfig in the box
-->find the tab that says start up and click
-->uncheck all the boxes
-->click apply

and you're done!

My pc.. desktop is very slow.. its a windows vista


You may want to look into upgrading your RAM if there is less than 2GB installed. This is a recommendation that I have found in working with several PC's running this Operating System. Also, you would want to run disk clean up and remove any temporary files that Windows finds. Deleting any other temporary or unused files from your PC on a regular basis should increase system performance. In addition, if these steps do not solve your problem, you may want to consider upgrading to a faster performance hard drive (preferably a SATA II with a 32MB cache). As a last resort, you may look at your CPU to see if there is an upgrade for it, as well. Keep in mind that Vista is a resource hog and can slow down a PC within just a short period of time.

You didn't say which version of Windows you have or how old your computer is. (1)If you have Windows XP or Vista, when you first got your computer you should have made a Restore Disk backup, and have done this periodically. You can go to the first Restore backup and do a System Restore, which will take you to an previous setting or you can do a clean install by saving your data, and reinstalling your Operating System. ( 2)The only other option you have is to add memory to your system, if it can take it. If you have the minimum amount of memory, the system will have to divide a;; it's memory into 2 or more tasks, thus slowing it down; adding more memory will speed it up. How much more you can add to your system should be explained in your manual or go to the manufacturer's website and find your answer there.

Shut down dell dimesion 4600 because it was running slow and it wouldn't boot up again


If it was running slow and now nothing at all happens when you press the power button, your power supply has probably died. Be careful replacing a power supply, if you accidentally get into the power supply itself, even with it unplugged it could kill you. DO NOT TRY TO REPAIR POWER SUPPLIES EVER! They are cheap and easy to replace, however dell has proprietary power supplies so you can't just go pick up a new one at the store. You must contact dell and order a new one. Once you have the part spend the few dollars to have it installed by a professional. If you are getting some action when starting (sounds, lights, ect.) it could be any number of things, but judging by the slow down I would say overheating. Again spend a few dollars to have a professional look for signs of heat damage and replace and bad components (hopefully not your system board) and install a new fan or additional cooling methods to prevent in the future.

I have a dell computer and its running slow


Disk Clean up is a small percentage of what you need to do. As you go by installing and uninstalling programs a lot of debris of programs keeps the Windows Registry bloating more and more. And each time you give a command it has to read the registry which takes time. And you feel the computer is slowing down.
Solution:-
Go to www.ccleaner.com and download CCleaner free and install it. Run it and clean up the registry and all others extra baggage that slows the computer down. And wach your PC/laptop gallop after that.

Runtime Error


Try booting the computer in Safemode ( Restart the computer and press F8 just before Windows start loading). Then go to Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore. See if you can restore your system to a period when you did not have this problem. That is if you started having this problem very recently. Hope this helps.
