Can you tell me to restore my laptop to the status it was, say, three weeks ago. I may have allowed an install update that has affected Spotify which downloads music from the internet. I am running Windows 7. Thankyou Soosywhit

To restore the laptop to the status when the update was installed 3 weeks back, you will have to use the System Restore utility.

1) Open System Restore by clicking the Start button. In the search box, type System Restore, and then, in the list of results, click System Restore. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

2) Then in the System Restore window which opens, click on the Next button (see attached image).

3) Then, in the next window which opens, click the check box next to Show more Restore points. (See attached image)

Then select the Restore Point from the list of restore points when the update was installed and click Next. (Please Note: The number of Restore Points available depends on the disk space alloted for System Restore. If the disk space alloted is less, the older restore points may not be available now.)

4) In the next window which opens, confirm the restore point and click on the Finish button. (see attached image)

The computer will now automatically restart and restored to the earlier state.

Hope this solves your problem. Thanks for using FixYa.

I have an ac delco car radio, a few decent speakers and a shop that needs music. My question is. Is it possible to control what is played from my Spotify playlist?

No unless you make a playlist and it is accepted. Making a playlist in YouTube may be easier with an ipad or cheap tablet and a Bluetooth speaker.

if you have enable System Restore in windows it should be possible to reset back to an earlier stage - however this does not affect all software on your system, only Windows. But in a lot of cases this will help where you have problems due to bad software installation and/or updates.
check this out for Windows 7... search MS for other windows versions.

Dell vostro 1310 problem plzzz help

easy way.... go to internet options and restore it all to default, and set security to med. apply and test.

harder way... update ALL LAN and network/internet related drivers, then disable them. then re-enable them, then restart computer.
if none of these works you do have a hardware issue cuz thats covers all the soft ware issues possible except maybe a virus, but u did a clean install so.... probly not you can get to the drivers from computer management

My pc is telling me i need to update adbode flash player ive done this but still its telling me to update it ive done this several times now with no success

When are you getting the update message? Does it display while you are browsing? (In that case, which browser are you using? Is the Flash Player plug-in enabled? (Similarly, do you have an adblock or javascript blocker extension in use?) For Internet Explorer, make sure that you allow the Active-X to install during the install. Depending on the version, you'll see this as a yellow bar at the top or bottom of the page. My browser sometimes doesn't display that message until I leave the Adobe Flash page.)

If it displays on restart, make sure that you allow the process in the UAC for Vista or Win7. Also make sure that you check the box for Accepting the Adobe Terms and Conditions.

In some cases, I've found that the ActiveX Flash plug-in will not update for several weeks (or two or three restarts) because I don't see that Allow Active-X while at the Adobe page. Then it gives me the update ready to install message on restart.

I hope this helps.

Repeating question I wrote a few minutes ago. I have an Asus netbook. 12 months old. Loved it until a few weeks ago. When I am in email (either gmail or hotmail accounts) the netbook no longer keeps up...

I would run Virus Check programs and do a clean up of all temporary files.
I would restore windows to an earlier date, look at restore in the help section.
