Mirroring, I think

I want to set up my 2nd computer which is a clean slate to be exactly the same as my main computer. Same OS/files/programs everything. I thought there was such a thing as mirroring. What is the easiest way of doing this?
Thanks, LariR

Possible that PC is hanging up as there is fault on the OS ( operating system) . So open the internet options in the browser and clean all the cookies, temporary internet files, defragment the drives and RESTORE the PC to an earlier set date.

You can use a registry cleaner like Advanced system care. Download from the site and check you system for corrupt files. Also use a good antivirus software which is active to keep your system performing without an attack on the OS. Remove all unnecessary programs installed which you do not use all the time and clean up the drives. This will free up the space and make your system faster.
If there is no response but the PC tends to work slower and occasionally hanging when a program is being executed then you might have to install the OS once again. Install the OS and then an antivirus before the drivers of the PC is installed.

If you want a clean install make sure you format the hard drive during the install process, do not select fast format.

The sound on my computer randomly stops working and i have to restart it for it to work properly again, its getting very irritating any advice?


Try and reinstall the drivers after you have made a good detailed virus scan, cleaned files off, internet files, cookies history .
Now restore the set back to an earlier set point, If this wont help the program files are corrupt and it is possible that the OS must be reinstalled.

Move data from Windows 95 to Windows 2000


Files are pretty easy to transfer, and there are a few ways to do it. You can some kind of removable storage device such as an external hard drive or a thumb drive. You can also set up a network between the computers, which can be done using the network setup wizard, which can be found in the control panel.

Transferring programs is the hard part. If you don't have very many programs, you might just want to reinstall them on the new computer if you have the installation discs or files. If you have a lot of programs with settings that you would like to keep, you may want to purchase a transferring program like PCmover, which will transfer files, programs, and settings between two computers.

Another option is to use a disk imaging program, which creates an exact copy of your entire hard drive which can be moved onto another computer. There are many programs you can use to do this, some of which cost money, whereas some can be downloaded for free. You can find a list of free programs here: http://www.thefreecountry.com/utilities/backupandimage.shtml

The disk imaging option is definitely more difficult than a straight transfer though, since it just copies them to a file rather than actually installing them on the new computer. This option is mainly useful if you want to keep programs that you do not have installation discs or files for.

I think there are too many viruses.


What is happening to your computer? If it is slow, and has trouble running programs, you may have to clean your temp files. From your main screen, select start, from here you will see, on the lower right side of that window, a item that says "Run". Select that. When that opens up, type in the following----

%temp%

This will open another window that will show you files that are saved into the temporary folder in your computer. Make sure that all programs are shut off, then go up to the "EDIT" tab, select all, then hit delete selected. This should eliminate any problems with the slowing of your computer. Do this once a week, every time you get on the internet, or do work on the computer, it stores a temp file of what you have done, Yahoo Messenger also seems to add a plethora of files into this when it opens. If you clean this file up on a weekly basis, you shouldn't have too many problems.

If you do have some persistent problems, try Webroot Anti-Virus/Spyware program.. it is the best i have ever used...

Computer freezes at least once a day


Hi,

Computer freezing could either be:
1. hardware caused or
2. software driven.

Things you can try:
a. hardware - if the warranty won't be void, open the case and remove, clean, re-insert the memory. Cleaning can be done with the use of a pencil eraser on the little gold pins of the memory.
You can also try to set the BIOS/CMOS to "Default Settings" to override any enhance settings that might be "just a bit too much" for the system. This could be done by pressing on "Del" (normally in most PCs) immediately after Power ON before the your OS boots and looking for the selection "Set to Default" or something like that;
b. Scan/Clean your PC for any possible virus and/or malware. Free download of some good ones are Avira and Ad-Aware.
c. Streamline your OS configuration and minimize programs running in the background. A couple of suggestions:
c.1. increase your swap file/virtual memory to roughly double your physical memory;
c.2. defrag your main hard drive;
c.3. Trim/slim down your startup files (msconfig);
c.4. select "Adjust for best performance" in your Performance Options (System properties);

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
