Speed up my PC

1. Back up your PC. It's essential to perform regular backups of your PC, particularly if you'll be using utilities and tools that make software changes. Unfortunately, Windows XP Home Edition doesn't come with a backup utility. See Utilities To Back Up Your Data for downloads that will do the job. The built-in backup utility in Windows XP Pro is more robust than earlier versions, but it won't back up to a CD-R. It does work with CD-RWs, hard drives, and removable storage.
Log in to XP Pro with Administrator privileges, select Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, Backup. Step through the various dialog boxes and follow all directions. In the 'What to Back Up' dialog box, choose the All information on this computer option if you haven't done a backup before. This will create a floppy that you can use to boot your PC and to restore the backup after a crash.
2. Check hard drives for errors. It's wise to do a thorough check on the status of your hard drives occasionally. Go to Start, My Computer, right-click the icon for your C: drive, and choose Properties. Then choose the Tools tab and click the Check Now button. Repeat this step for your other hard drives.
Applications and files must be closed in order for error checking to fix the problems it finds, so XP will often report that the disk check will run the next time you restart your system if you've checked 'Automatically fix file system errors' on the next screen.
Note: Finding and recovering bad sectors can take hours if you have a large drive.
3. Defragment hard drives. The more you use your PC, the more some files become broken into disparate parts scattered around your hard drive. Defragmenting rearranges each file's pieces into a single continuous block for faster access.
You'll need to be logged in as the Administrator to run XP's Disk Defragmenter. First select Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, Disk Defragmenter. Highlight the drive that you want to check, and press the Analyze button. XP will tell you whether the drive needs to be defragmented. If XP does recommend defragging, click the Defragment button.
4. Sack any spyware. A free program like Spybot Search & Destroy or Ad-aware can get rid of any freeloading spyware that makes its way onto your system.
5. Clean out unneeded files. Go to Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, Disk Cleanup, and select the drive you want to clean. XP will analyze your files and show a list of which ones can be removed. Check the boxes next to the categories you want to discard.
The More Options tab offers you several more cleanup choices. The System Restore cleanup option, in particular, can clear lots of disk space by erasing old restore points.
6. Back up again. Once you've finished tweaking your system and you're sure that everything is running well, it's a good idea to back up everything once again. That way, you'll always have a clean, fully optimized starting point that you can return to in case a disaster befalls your system.
Any doubts you can contact a technician through the website

Every time I install Diskeeper 10 I get a problem at bootup, Autocheck error ???

You will need to unistall the program and do the following

Go to start
All Programs
System Tools
System Restore
Click Next
Follow the prompts and choose a date from the list when you know your computer was working correctly, your system will reboot and should go directly into windows without the error.
Once you have done this go to the website of the manufacter for your software and check their system requirements to make sure it is compatible with your system as you may need to install further updates to run the program
This should work for you, let me know if you need further assistance
Please leave rating/feedback if you found this helpful, thanks!

Windows Backup

The backup program only came installed in the Pro version. In the Home version you need to install it from the original operating system CD. Put the CD in the drive. Goto Start, Run and type (CD Drive):\valueadd\msft\ntbackup. This will install the backup program.

Just click on the icon in the notification area and follow the directions on the activation wizard. If the icon does not appear in the notification area, you can click Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Activate Windows. It brings up the same wizard. Select the method you want to use to activate windows and click next. Choosing the Internet option will automatically dial-up if necessary to connect to the activation servers.

I try to make my toshiba external hard drive back up my files from my pc but i don't know how to do it?

there are different things you may want to try..
if backup is what you need and not just a copy of your files you can use and backup utility that comes with windows xp pro (I'm assuming that's the os your using). to look for the backup utility go to ; start>all programs>accessories>system tools>backup, it will usually open in wizard mode so follow the instructions.. basically what you will be doing is determining what needs to be back up, where you want that backed up (select the externa hdd unit that should be avaliable if you have your external hdd connected) and when you want to start back up... read through the prompts... it should be fairly easy.
if you don't have the backup utility (you may be using home xp edition)... you may need to get a windows xp cd and follow this instructions to install it as described here:
