A good place to start is the 'add/remove programs' section in Control Panel. Go down the list and un-install programs that you no longer need.

Speed up PC.-no virus/spyware,disk,


If you are determined to risk registry cleaning, you might try Wise Registry Cleaner, Glary's registry cleaner, or the registry cleaner in CCleaner or the commercial Advanced System Mechanic. You may use Revo Uninstaller to completely remove the programs you installed immediately before trouble emerged or resort to accessing the registry backup you created before cleaning. Many of the cleaners allow creation of such backups from within the software..

Sooner or later, registry cleaning seems to result in a "gotcha." You will be glad you had system restore points when that day happens. I try to leave registry junk alone, use portable apps to avoid installs affecting the registry, and make a restore point prior to every software installation.

How do you determine what is safe to clean? Well, Wise Registry Cleaner rather gives you a screen which suggests what is purportedly completely safe to remove by the screen colors indicating safe ones. If you have any doubts, don't remove the registry entry.

Not that the advice will keep you completely safe! Backup your critical data files to an external hard drive before engaging in too much registry tampering. As you chase performance, cleaning suites sound like a good option, right up to the point you crash, then you are chasing recovery options.

Use of Sandboxes and Virtual Drives avoid some garbage collection but that far more than you have requested to know about.

Adding ram sped up XP machines more than registry tweaks ever did.

GENERAL COMPUTER TIPS TO MAKE YOUR PC FAST WORKING...!!!


1) Store all files in one folder according to it's type :- The my folder option is provided exclusively for this purpose as it helps in tacking out the type of file you are looking for easily and also its mush easier to backup the files at once. Secondly it helps to run the machine faster.

2) Don't store your files in the root folder c:/ drive.... :- Its recommended to store your files in the other drives that you create, because C drive is formatted every time you format or re-install windows or whenever there is a system crash, as a result all your files are lost.

3) Uninstall the programs that are not in Use :- Running programs tend to use the disk space hence reducing the speed of the system. So Uninstall all the files and programs that are not in use. Don not delete them but go to START, then Control Panel and then Add or Remove programs option and Remove the desired program.

4) When downloading a ZIP file, when you expand it delete the original file when done.

Just try following the above ueful tips and Get going to use a Faster Pc.

Restore recovery disk


Hi Billy,
depends on what you mean by restore. Assuming you have windows installed, you can make a back-up by going to START > Control Panel > System and Security > Create a backup

(the path above may be a bit off from the wording, the PC I am on at the moment is not an english version.)

Then on the left side there is a link to create a recovery disk or create a backup. the recovery disk option only makes a bootable disk to start your computer if your windows cannot start. This only gives you an enviroment where you can try to fix windows or to restore a backup that you created beforehand with the second option above.

If you create a backup, there are two things to keep in mind... what type of data do you want to back up and how often. You can put check marks on all data that you want to backup (Note: the more data you backup the larger your backup file will be). If you plan on restoring a corrupt windows with the backup you should include "System State".

Restoring from a backup file a.k.a. backup image will ONLY give you back the files that were on your computer at the time you made the backup... that means everything that you created after you made the backup will be lost.

Hope that helps.

NEED TO KNOW HOW I CAN PREVENT BACKUP FILES FROM GOING INTO MY RECOVERY(D), AND FILLING IT UP. I AM RECEIVING MESSAGE THAT I HAVE LOW DISK SPACE IN RECOVERY DISK. HOW DO I FREE UP THIS SPACE, AND HOW


Are you sure the files are going in there? Many times the manufacturers only allocate the size that they need partitioned on that drive. I have seen many cases where that drive is full from factory and people always get that message.

  1. Click Start c01508537.gif and right-click Computer .
  2. Select Properties .
  3. Click System Protection from the left side of the Window.
  4. In the section "Automatic restore points", remove the selection next to the D: drive, and then click OK . If the D: drive was not selected, close this window. Figure 3: System Protection tab with D: drive unselected
    c01556005.jpg
  5. Right-click Start Explore All Users .
  6. Before you can remove the backup files and folders, you need to be able to view hidden system files as follows:
    1. From the explorer window press the Alt key on the keyboard to make the menu bar appear in the window.
    2. From the file menu, click Tools , and then select Folder Options .
    3. Select the View tab.
    4. Select Show hidden files and folders , remove the selection from Hide protected operating system files and then click OK .
  7. From the Folder Options window in explorer, double-click Recovery (D:) .
  8. If a Window opens stating "You don't currently have permission to access this folder" opens. Click Continue .
  9. If you previously copied or created any files into Recovery (D:) and you want to keep them, copy them to another drive - such as the C: drive.
  10. Find and delete any files that you previously copied onto the Recovery (D:) drive.
    CAUTION:Do not delete any files that are associated to recovery! Do not delete the items RECOVERY, $RECYCLE.BIN, boot, hp, PC-Doctor, pcdr, or PRELOAD! Doing so can prevent a future system recovery from the hard drive. If you are not sure, do not delete the file.
    Press Shift + Delete to permanently remove the files.
    To delete files created from MS Backup (MS Backup files are not recovery files), find and delete the folder with the same name as the computer name in the Recovery (D:) partition. For example if the computer name is BOB-PC, the folder containing the backup files would be named BOB-PC and would be deleted.
  11. Several confirmation windows open. Click Continue , and Yes until the folder is deleted.
  12. To set Windows Folder Options back to their original setting as follows:
    1. From the explorer window press Alt to view the file menu.
    2. Click Tools , and then select Folder Options .
    3. Select do not show hidden files and folders and select Hide protected operating system files .
    4. Click OK .
  13. Close explorer. The Out of Disk Space errors should no longer appear. If you would like to use the Microsoft Backup Tool again, open it and select a different external backup device to store the backup files on.

Restoring an Acer Extensa 5620 to factory defaults


LOL, good luck using the disks. Most times they don't work.

Why not just create a user account with the friends name then sign on using the account you just created and delete the other user accounts. It will delete all your My Documents folder (music, pictures, videos, documents).

Click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts and select the option to create a new user account. Use your friends name to create the account then restart the computer. When it boots back up, log in using the name of the newly created account. Then click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts and select a user account to delete. When prompted about saving anything for the account select the option to delete everything associated with the account.

Now if you want to remove any programs after you've deleted the accounts click Start/Programs and search the program list for folders to uninstall. If it has an uninstall option, take it.

Any program you want to delete that is not in a folder in the program list or does not have an uninstall option can be deleted by clicking Start/Control Panel then look for Add or Remove Programs, or Program Features or Uninstall Program (just depends on your operating system). Open it and let it populate the programs, then highlight the program you want to uninstall by clicking it and select Remove or Uninstall.

On my acer notebook ive got the dreaded BSOD. ive tried every option in the f8 menu and end up back with BSOD. is there anyway for me to fix this? have no disk drive


Try cleaning your laptop and put 1 drop of thermal paste on the top of the processor or CPU. Then try again booting up, if still the same (BSOD) your system files are corrupted. First thing to do is to back up your data or files. Remove your HDD or hard disk drive and plug in to hdd laptop usb adaptor. So that you can backup all your files into another computer. After backup your data or filles.Then you must have the USB windows installer bootable. Make the usb boot first from your bios or cmos settings then follow the on screen instruction for formatting computer.

Please rate me.

My PC has a 70 gig hard drive Its partitioned into C and D C is full How do I remove the partion? Thanks Jim


Hi,

If the drive is too full delete something that you can live without. Click on the link i have provided below, download and install Easeus Partition Manager. This tool will help you to re-size or merge the C drive to expand hard drive space and it only takes between 5 and 10 minutes to learn and execute.

Please let me know how you get on or if you need anymore help.

Good luck.
