Desktop computer starts and run slow


You can speed up your PC with the help of these tips given below:-

1) Defragment & Optimize files in the hard disk regularly.
2) Disable the unwanted start up programs.
3) Defragment the registry if needed.
4) Uninstall unnecessary programs (Games, crapware, toolbars, etc.)

Tip

Computer Maintenance


You may not realize it, but your computer and your car have something in common: they both need regular maintenance. No, you don't need to change your computer's oil. But you should be updating your software, keeping your antivirus subscription up to date, and checking for spyware. Read on to learn what you can do to help improve your computer's security.

Getting started

Here are some basics maintenance tasks you can do today to start improving your computer's security. Be sure you make these part of your ongoing maintenance as well.

* Sign up for software update e-mail notices. Many software companies will send you e-mail whenever a software update is available. This is particularly important for your operating system, your antivirus program, and your firewall.

* Register your software. If you still have send them in. And be sure to register new software in the future. This is another way for the software manufacturer to alert you when new updates are available.

* Install software updates immediately. When you get an update notice, download the update immediately and install it. (Remember, downloading and installing are two separate tasks.)

An ounce of prevention

A few simple steps will help you keep your files safe and clean.

* Step 1: Update your software
* Step 2: Backup your files
* Step 3: Use antivirus software and keep it updated
* Step 4: Change your passwords

Developing ongoing maintenance practices

Now that you've done some ground work,, it's time to start moving into longer term maintenance tasks. These are all tasks that you should do today (or as soon as possible) to get started. But for best results, make these a part of a regular maintenance schedule. We recommend setting aside time each week to help your computer secure.

* Back up your files. Backing up your files simply means creating a copy of your computer files that you can use in the even the originals are lost. (Accidents can happen.) To learn more read our tips for backing up information.

* Scan your files with up to date antivirus software. Use your antivirus scan tool viruses and worms. Also, check your antivirus program's user manual to see if you can schedule an automatic scan of your computer. To learn more, read our tips for reducing your virus risk.

* Change your passwords. Using the same password increases the odds that someone else will discover it. Change all of your passwords regularly (we recommend monthly) to reduce your risk. Also, choose your passwords carefully. To learn more, read our tips for creating stronger passwords.

Making a schedule

One of the best ways to help protect your computer is to perform maintenance regularly. To help you keep track, we suggest making a regular "appointment" with your computer. Treat it like you would any other appointment. Record it in your datebook or online calendar, and if you cannot make it, reschedule. Remember, you are not only helping to improve your computer, you are also helping to protect your persoanl information.

Good luck!

En d?marrant mon ordinateur, j'ai toujours le m?me message d'erreur : c:\program Files\ascentive\performance center\APCMain.exe abnormal program termination comment faire pour m'en d?barasser


Salut Francoise,
'Ascentive' est un programme pour spyware, oui? Je recommande que vous désinstalliez 'Ascentive', et, téléchargez alors et installer un meilleur programme 'Spybot - Search and Destroy' appelé. C'est plus fiable et très simple pour utiliser. Je n'ai jamais eu n'importe quels problèmes avec spyware, puisque j'ai installé Spybot.

J'espère que ceci est serviable à vous. Bonne Chance!

I need to re install my ascentive performance center


StopBadware.org released a badware alert about PC SpeedScan Pro today:
We find that PC SpeedScan Pro is badware because it does not disclose the fact that it installs additional "Performance Center" software and fails to remove this software when PC SpeedScan Pro is uninstalled, and because it repeatedly displays notifications that exaggerate the performance impact of various ‘errors’ found on users’ computers, in order to induce users to purchase the full version of the software.
The software was distributed via a website called finallyfast.com.
We attempted to contact the software publisher, Ascentive, via e-mail, but we did not receive a response.
We currently recommend that users do not install PC SpeedScan Pro, unless users are comfortable with the behaviors we have identified or until the application is updated to be consistent with the recommendations made in this alert.

I had been hearing a lot of good things about the Ascentive Software release of PC SpeedScan Pro. It claims to get those gigabytes of data you have accumulated straightened out and get your computer running like new again. PC SpeedScan claims to fix registry errors that can make your computer slow while it sorts through the errors as you are accessing your programs and files. Apparently it does not work too well. See our recommended computer optimization programs here.
After hearing some of the complaints about the Ascentive software, you may want to stick with computer optimization programs that have stood the test of time. Here are some good reviews on SpeedUpMyPC 2009, TuneUp Utilities 2008, and Optimize 2.0 - definitely worth a look!

I would personally recommend ncleaner. It has been my hands-down champion for months now.

Trust me Albert, stay away from the ascentive con-artist program. ncleaner will clean up your machine, and I also recommend you scan with Spybot, as Ascentive might have dumped some cookies on yr machine.

Good Luck and Season's Greetings!
