This is a shot in the dark really, since it could be a number of things including a corrupted hard drive, but It most likely is just some nasty virus or spyware if it is limited to the certain accounts, so log in as an admin user that works, and run your favorite spyware tool and antivirus scans and see if that helps. AdAware is a good one and has a free version that's free to use at home. You may try Spybot also and a Trend antivirus online scan is also good - and free. AVG has a free antivirus if you need one. If that is not it, you may have to delete those user accounts or do a repair on your Windows install by using the CD.

Hi,

Thanks for asking FixYa for help. My name is Jeff and I will be assisting you today. You said that the computer is only 1 month old? It is still under warranty then. Take it back to the store for
refund or exchange. You shouldn't be having this kind of problem with a new computer.

If you are in need of additional help, please let us know.

Thank you for allowing us to help you today.

Computer freeze


The blue screen. Recreate the problem.. there should be something along the lines of a description across the top of the screen that says some technical information.

If you want.. just type the stop code.. for example Stop 0x000000.. (just an example) If you ANYthing that has a files name.. like blahblah.drv or blah blah.dll... type everything in on that line here.

The problem is most likely..
A bad driver in windows
A faulty printer
A faulty USB cable
A broken usb connector on your laptop that has a short.

but the most likely is a faulty driver.
Try downloading the latest driver from the manufacturer's website.

Restore / setup freeze e machine


Hanto is correct in saying "You shouldn't have to give it a name if you don't want to. Windows will self-name the comuter based on a formula that it decides on." but the install should not freeze regardless of which option.
Have a good look at the "data" side of your restore CD, make sure it is spotless with no scratches. If it is damaged see can you "borrow" an OS CD which matches the OS product on the license sticker which you will find stuck to the PC from someone else (idealy an OEM copy). You will be able to load windows using this and entering your "KEY". You may have some driver issues, but if your PC came with a 2nd Driver CD you won't have any problems, otherwise you may have to download them from the PC manufacturers site.

If this solution is of any help please remember to rate it.

Forgot my passord and can't seem to get it work need to re-set my aol password


If you can't remember your AOL® Password, you can easily create a new one by verifying information about your AOL® membership. Only authorized users can change passwords. You can use your AOL® screen name and password on the AIM® service as well. You no longer need a separate password to sign in to AIM®. You can also change the password for your AOL screen name when you are on AIM. If you do so, you'll need to use your new password to sign on to the AOL® service.

How Do I Reset My Password? If you can't sign on to the AOL® software because you don't remember your password, you can reset your password from the sign on screen. This procedure will work only if you are using AOL® Desktop™ for Mac®, AOL® 8.0 Plus and higher, only for those screen names that show up on the sign on screen, or if you connect with a dial-up modem.
To create a new password by using your AOL® software:
1. On the sign on screen, select the screen name whose password you wish to reset, and then click the Forgot Password? link. The software will dial out to connect to the Online Password Reset facility.
2. In the Word in Image: box, type the letters and numbers that are displayed in the image, and then click Next.
3. In the Your Answer: box, type the answer for your Account Security Question (ASQ) or provide other information required to confirm authorization, and then click Next.
4. Type your new password in both the boxes, and then click OK.
5. Click OK to close the confirmation window.

Dell Dimension 2400 Freezes frequently


check inside the case of the computer to make sure that the interface cable between the hard drive and the motherboard are fully connected. Also check to see if the RAM modules are fully inserted into their slots. If not, they try removing them one by one, until the computer starts up faster. If this doesn't fix it, then try a new hard drive, and interface cable.
