How do I rid Hd521-2w


You should always remove and uninstall programs from your PC that you are not using. It could be beneficial to your computer's productivity and functioning to free up space. You run the risk of running out of space on your computer if you add too many programs without uninstalling some. It is a relatively easy process, but you should be sure you are not removing a program that is necessary to the operation of your computer.

Click "Start" and select "Programs." Click "Control Panel" and "Programs" and "Programs and Features." Browse the list of programs on your computer and select one that you want to remove. Click "Uninstall." You may be prompted for permission from the administrator to remove the program. Enter the administrator password or confirmation if necessary. Check the properties of the program if it is not listed in "Programs." You can do this by right-clicking on the program desktop icon and selecting "Properties." Check to see if the program is compatible with the version of Windows that you are using. Click "Start" and "Run," to manually remove the programs if the uninstall option does not completely uninstall the program. Type "Regedt32" in the box and click "OK." Locate the "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall" registry key and click "Export" under the "File" tab. Click "Desktop" on the "Export Registry File" dialog box. Type "Uninstall" in the "File Name" box and select "Save." The left panel of the Registry Editor will display the programs that are currently installed. Right-click the key in the left panel of the Registry Editor window. Click "Delete." Click "Yes" when you are asked to confirm deletion of the program. Click the "File" menu and select "Exit." This will exit the Registry Editor. Click "Start" and "Control Panel" and click "Add or Remove Programs." Confirm that the program is no longer listed here.

I have a dell computer and its running slow


Disk Clean up is a small percentage of what you need to do. As you go by installing and uninstalling programs a lot of debris of programs keeps the Windows Registry bloating more and more. And each time you give a command it has to read the registry which takes time. And you feel the computer is slowing down.
Solution:-
Go to www.ccleaner.com and download CCleaner free and install it. Run it and clean up the registry and all others extra baggage that slows the computer down. And wach your PC/laptop gallop after that.

I want to know how to change the option of saving my password.


Your internet passwords are saved in the cookies. Install ccleaner. It is a free software and run this application to deleate cookies. Don't use the ccleaner as a registry cleaner. It is still under development. Use only for general disk cleanup. Ccleaner is an advanced disk cleanup software works better than the windows default disk cleanup application.

My laptop is not working right, it is extremely slow and something called Vongo keeps trying to install but won't and it won't do anything


Uninstall Vongo:
1. Restart the Notebook and keep Tapping F8.
2. Select Safe Mode and press Enter
3. Click on Start, select Run, type "msconfig" press Enter.
4. Click on Startup tab and uncheck the check box besides "isuspm"
5. Click OK and restart the system for the new settings to take effect.
Kate: Note: After you restart the machine you may receive a dialogue box stating 'System is running using Selective Startup', Check 'Don't show this message or launch the system configuration utility when Windows Starts' and click OK.
Kate: Now, restart the Notebook again and go into Safe Mode by tapping F8. Click on Start -> Control Panel -> Add Remove Programs.
Locate the Vongo Software and click on Remove to uninstall it.

If this does not resolve the issue, you may have to manually delete the files:

1. Double click on My Computer
2. Double click on C Drive
3. Double click on Program Files
4. Select the Vongo Software folder and press Delete.
5. Close the Window
6. Right click on Recycle Bin folder and select Empty Recycle Bin
This will remove the Software.
Now, run the Windows Installation Cleanup Utility, this will remove the registry entries for the Software.

You can download the Utility from the given below link: http://download.microsoft.com/download/e/9/d/e9d80355-7ab4-45b8-80e8-983a48d5e1bd/msicuu2.exe

(Note: Do not click on the link. Copy and paste the complete link in the address bar of the Internet Explorer.)
The Windows Installer CleanUp Utility does:

• Provide a dialog box where you can select one or more programs that were installed by Windows Installer. You select the programs on the Installed Products list in the Windows Installer CleanUp dialog box. After you make this selection, the utility removes only the Windows Installer configuration information that is related to those programs.

• Remove the files and registry settings that make up the Windows Installer configuration information for programs that you select.

Hope this resolves the problem with Vongo. Would appreciate if you rate it.

Thanks,

My wifes computer appears of line to all her contacts but she has not set it that way what can she do to correct this?


She is going to need to give her computer a complete cleaning job because messenger takes alot of available memory:

Update and run virus control

Go to toolbar>tools>internet options>general>and delete all cookies

go to Start>All programs>accessories>systems tools>disc cleanup and run that

How many little icons does she show in the lower right corner. These are programs that are always "on" running in the background and they take a lot of memory. I can tell you how to get rid of them if there are several unnecessary ones.

Clean up the desktop. Are there a bunch of icons for programs you rarely if ever use? right click on them and delete them. This does not delete the program and you can put them back anytime.

If you have a registry cleaning program, run that

Empty email trash

Empty the trash can

Do a defrag which can be found at the same place as the disc cleanup
Now restart your computer.

Turn off all running programs using the icons in the lower right corner. Be sure to turn off your virus/firewall control.

Uninstall messenger (Save any lists just by copying them to a new text file somewhere.)

Now leaving your proggys off, download and reinstall messenger. This is called a clean install. Restart your computer once more. Do not save abunch of history in messenger. It takes up tons of memory.

Good luck.
