Go to Start>programs>accessories>system tools>system restore. Pick a date before you're programs we're gone. The system will reboot and tell you if it was successful with the restore. If this solves your problem please rate this as fixed. If not, please don't rate yet. Add a comment letting me know what's going on and I'll be happy to help you further. Thanks.

    I'm sorry if I misunderstood you. You stated that you were trying to do a system restore. Is this not what you were trying to do? Are you running Vista and not XP? If that is the case I can tell you how to do a system restore for Vista. What exactly are you trying to do?

    Try this:

    Turn the pc on ,as soon as it starts, press and hold the F8 key. This will take you to a boot option menu. Highlight and select last known good configuration. See if it's able to boot.

    If that doesn't work, turn the pc off.Restart the pc,as soon as it restarts press and hold the F8 key. This time highlight and select safe mode.If it boots into safe mode,once it's completely done booting, you can try a system restore.

    To do the system restore, go to START>ALL PROGRAMS>ACCESSORIES>SYSTEM_TOOLS>SYSTEM_RESTORE.Pick a day before your problems happened. It will let you know what's going on.

    Try these and let me know what happened. Thanks.

Something is wrong with my fan? I dont know, I keep hearing it get load like its over working, but i don't know any thing about what the inside of a computer is supposed to look like, or what goes where....


Most likely it is the build up of dust in the air inlet grill causing the fan to work harder or it is the fan bearing worn out.

Follow instructions on this site and it might fix the problem.

Hello there,

Just do a Windows Update. Of course by doing this, your windows copy of license should be guinuine, otherwise, it would cost you more trouble.

After updating, you need to reinstall the magic jack again.

Check to see if AVG has the option to scan the computer before windows start. I would also download and install a Spyware Scanner and run it. Usually when you are running a Spyware scan it will also pick up some of the Trojans and help your virus scanner detect and clean more viruses. I personally use SuperAntispyware ( www.superanitspyware.com) and SpyBot ( www.safer-networking.org/ ). Do a full scan and delete everything that if finds. If for some reason you are still having this issue, try restarting your computer into safe mode ( by pressing F8 when computer is booting up) and scanning every in safe mode.

Hope this helps.

Accessing EMachines W3107 Recovery Partion


You can fix this virus without recovering.

Log in normally. Go to run, type in msconfig and go to the startup tab. Uncheck everything and reboot your pc. Once there try your internet. If it's not working go to Internet Options, Connections, Lan Settings, and uncheck anything in your proxy settings. Close IE and reopen. You should be able to connect. Then download and run Malwarebytes, and then run Bitdefender Online scanner.

The only other thing that may be trouble is that there may be a rootkit that neither scanner will detect. You can run Combofix, but this program isn't for the average user. Follow instructions carefully when using Combofix.

Want to recover deleted photo files on my computer


Have you saved anything new on this computer drive since then?
After deleting something off from a computer drive, the deleted files are not erased completely. But, they could be also overwritten by any new file on the same drive and gone forever. Therefore, I hope you've not overwritten them all yet!
As to data recovery software, in fact, there are many data recovery freeware online that could work much more efficiently than some paid ones. Why not to have a try?
Try to restore these deleted photos back from your computer with the help of a data recovery freeware:

In the future, I hope you could back up everything important all the time.
