Thank you for your question.

Without going too deep into technical details, Popups are not "viruses", they are "malware" (malicious ware) and are not detected by a Anti Virus Programme.

In my case, I use Firefox Web Browser instead of Internet Explorer. In the "Tools/Options/Content" there is a check box to mark to stop Popups. It does a fantastic job, well worth considering. Link to download Firefox is below.

Pc keeps freezing


Computer freezing problem can be a temporary one, but if a computer freezes regularly when multi-tasking, there's some major issue occurring in your system. When you face such a situation, you need to take necessary steps as soon as possible to fix it:-

- Disinfect your system using some reliable antivirus program.
- Run disk clean up (start > programs > accessories > system tools > disk cleanup.)
- Disable background services.
- Fix OS registry errors with any reliable program (must use Reginout for it.)
- Defragment the registry if needed.

Thanks :-)

Black window keeps popping up on my computer. It's quick and I cannot read it. It happens every 15 to 20 seconds. Any suggestions? It is a dell inspiron lap top. It has been going on for about a week


  • Start -> Run -> cmd.exe
  • Then type the following "net stop messenger" after which you'll see "messenger service is stopping".
To start it again for any reason open the command prompt again (Start -> Run -> cmd.exe) and type "net start messenger"
Now you can be assured that your world will become silent. No more pop-up black screens.

POWERS UP BUT THEN FREEZES AFTER ABOUT 4 MINUTES


Need to test and isolate where it exactly freezes? After dell logo, after windows logo or while inside windows? Now, if it only freezes inside windows try to turn off your windows updates and antivirus first and check if still freezes, if yes then try booting in safe mode, reboot system then keep tapping on f8 once dell logo appears. Check if laptop keeps freezing in safe mode. Please let me know.

The initial screen freezes; start up stops completely.


Hi,
Take out the battery and the mains power, turn the laptop over and remove the ram cover, look for the ram and take it out by pushing the metal lugs outwards so the memory pops up, it's now ready to remove, the ram (memory) looks like this >>>>>>

Once the memory is out look very close in the memory bay for 2 brass triangles, they will be in the shape of a diamond, get a flat head screwdriver and short them 2 pins out, this will clear the CMOS, put the memory back in, turn the laptop over and plug in power & hit the on/off button.
When it comes it will say that bios settings are wrong so go into the bios and set the time and date, save the changes and exit the bios, the computer will restart and hopefully boot up with no more problems.

Hope this helps.

Good luck.
