  • Click the "Processes" tab and click on the "Image Name" column header. Scroll down through the list of programs and check to make sure the original program that gave the error message is not on the list. Click on the name of the program if it is in the list and choose "End Process."

Click "OK" and select "Delete Files."
  • Wait for the program to finish cleaning the files on your hard drive. Re-start the computer. Insert the installation CD for the program you deleted earlier or go to the website of the manufacturer and download the program again. Install the program.
  • Open the software program by double-clicking on its desktop icon or clicking on the name of the program in the "Start" menu under All Programs. Attempt to use the program to make sure the run time error message does not appear again.

How to maintain the Computer?

Getting Started:

Windows gives you these tools to help your Computer run more smoothly — Disk Clean Up, Scandisk, and Disk Defragmenter.

However, before doing any of this, it is advisable to be sure that all non-essential data is removed from your system, particularly tiny files.

Directories to check include C:WINDOWSTEMP, C:WINDOWSRECENT among others. You can also clear your browser cache and empty your email trash bins.

There are third party utilities to scan your drive for files of specific types (eg. files with 0 size, *.tmp files, etc.

However, if you routinely clear your cache, history and recent lists, this is really optional. The tools provided by Windows should be all that you need.

Programs in the background may prevent scandisk/disk defragmenter from working properly, so before beginning, it is recommended to disconnect from the net*, turn off all virus programs, firewalls, etc.

The easiest way to do this is to press CTRL+ALT+DEL and follow the instructions there to shut everything off but SYSTRAY and EXPLORER**.

However, even then, a previously unmaintained system may experience problems running scan disk/disk defragmenter, in which case I recommend powering down, and restarting the computer in Safe Mode***.

Most of your programs may not work in Safe Mode, because Windows bypasses your start up files, and many drivers will not be loaded. However, scan disk and disk defragmenter will both work in Safe Mode.

Running scan disk and disk defragmenter for the first time in a long time may take a very long time indeed, however, once done, the next time should not take nearly as long.

When should one defragment?

This depends on how the machine is used. If you just log on to surf forums once in a while, or otherwise only use the computer moderately, once a week should be sufficient.

However, if you are running 24/7, downloading 2-3GB per day, and visiting hundreds of webpages, the system can get bogged down, and will need more attention, such as every 3 or 4 days.

Another time to scan or defrag is when installing or uninstalling large programs. Installers create TEMP files and/or directories, and delete them when the installation is complete, however you end up with program data scattered all over the drive.

Scan/defrag before and after installing a large program (eg. Microsoft Office, or a Corel Graphics suite) will help the computer run more efficiently.

How do I run these programs?

Whether in Safe or Normal mode, these programs are found by hitting the Start Button, Programs, Accessories, System Tools - all three are located in this area.

Start the programs one at a time. In the case of multiple hard drives, you have the option of whether to do them all at once, or one at a time. Generally I scan/defrag C D E and F drives at the same time, and the C drive by itself after a major crash, install/uninstall or CD burning session (where I free up a lot of space on the C drive after deleting).

Hope this helps.

My computer is very slow, sometimes freezes or won't load and will not shut down

If your laptop computer won't shut itself down even after you select the "Shut Down" option from your "Start" menu, this means that too many programs are still open on your computer. Before Windows can shut down, it needs to manually close all open software, and having too many programs open can severely delay this process or cause Windows to lock up. Closing these programs will help your machine shut down as normal.
b> Right-click on your task bar. Click "Show Windows Stacked." This will maximize all of the program windows for all open programs on your desktop. The windows will be stacked one on top of the other on-screen. Click the "X" box in the corner of the first window to close that particular program. This will reveal the next program window in the stack. Continue to close these programs until you see your desktop wallpaper again. This, coupled with the fact that your task bar should now be cleared of all program icons, indicates that you have successfully closed all program windows. Your laptop will now shut down normally.

Won't boot in safe mode

Starting an IBM Thinkpad T43 in safe mode allows you to troubleshoot technical issues that you otherwise couldn't. Often when a system has a virus or other type of malicious program, safe mode is the only way to locate and delete the problem. In safe mode, only the computer's essential programs are enabled, and only the files necessary to running the system are in use. Learn how to start an IBM Thinkpad T43 in safe mode using a few fairly easy steps.

1.Close all programs and restart the IBM Thinkpad T43.

2.Press "F8" repeatedly after the IBM logo appears, but before the operating system logo appears. If the "F8" key doesn't work, restart the computer and try pressing the "F11" key repeatedly.

3.Press the "down arrow" key to select "Safe Mode."

4.Press the "Enter" key. The computer will boot up in safe mode.

My acer aspire 6530g is really slow lately and i get a crackling/no sound at all from speakers and headphones when i reinstall everything including windows vista its solved and starts again after a few...

Easy :)

Well, the acer 6530g has a software problem, or well, not the computer, but the thrash acer sells it with.

the problem is specifically the Battery manager.

I dont remember what its caller, acer battery manager or something, its showing on your taskbar and will open once u click the battery.

Anyways, for some reason, it puts ur CPU to powersave, which will turn it down to about 2-5% of its original capacity.

So all you got to do is to access the program, move the CPU slider to 100% and it should be gone.

It may reset sometimes though, in which case you just repeat.

this problem will not be solved until u remove the acer software **** that came with the computer, mainly the power manager, remove it and you will not have that program again, i personally couldn`t be arsed uninstalling it, so i installed W7 on it on a clean install, works as a charm now!

System booting issue

Try to reboot it, picking F8 again, and going through a system repair process. I finally got my computer to restore, but had to do it a few times. Other than that, not sure if you should reinstall might have a computer shop look at it before you wipe out all your programs. Good luck!

Won't start up windows xp after installing antivirus

Sounds like a virus you had on your system was linked onto one of your important system files. If you have a system rescue disk, probably included with the system you bought if you bought it new, use it. It won't delete any of your files, but it will restore any missing system files that windows needs to start.
If that doesn't work, you will probably have to format the disk and start over.

For future reference, always make a backup of your system before deleting files with viruses in them. Most anti virus programs will tell you to do this as well.
