My computer takes a long time to connect to the internet when i turn it on


You might have a problem with your phone line. Contact your broadband provider as they can slow you down if you have disconnected a lot.
Use a broadband speed checker. That will show if your broadband is slow.
PS NEVER turn your broadband off!

The connection was reset


It seems more like a browser issue. Did you try another browser or jus Internet Explorer (IE). Another easy fix would be to turn off your pc, then turn off router and/or modem.
At this point, if your connection is "wired", please disconnect the ethernet cable from the back of the computer. If you use a wireless connection to connect to the internet disregard this step. Reconnect everything and turn power on for router/modem, then turn on your pc. Try again to load a page after that. Regards.

My compter be a victim of sotfware couterfeiting


Did you just purchase the computer, and it had Windows XP Professional "pre-installed"?
If so, the store that sold you the computer may have used a "counterfeit" copy of Windows, rather than using a "genuine" copy of Windows (which only cost them about $100).

Or, did you recently take the computer to a computer-store, for repair (such as after having a computer-virus), and did they reinstall Windows, again using "counterfeit" software?

Or, did a "friend" install Windows XP, using "counterfeit" software?

I've recently had my Dell XP Home Edition computer fixed and everything had been erased and I've been trying to burn a CD and the computer says it cant find a Cd Burner on the compter's system.


Take a look at the face-plate of the optical drive. It should have an authentic 'CD/RW' logo imprinted. If not, then some unscrupulous person could have removed your CD-writer, and installed a CD-reader.

Videa stops and buffers


Sounds like you are trying to stream video--apparently your internet connection is too slow for the speed of the streaming video. You buffer some of the content and your computer starts playing it. Since it is coming into the computer so slowly, your computer plays everything in the buffer and then has to wait for more content.

How can i install ms office in my pc


You have to buy Microsoft office and install from the CD.
You can get OpenOffice.org which is the same FREE from file hippo.
Just type in file hippo in your browser and you will find the application in the list of free software, down load and run and you will have in my opinion a better word processing package than office for free less hassle and certainly less pop ups.
By the way it's compatible with all Microsoft office versions.

Lasr resort, have you tried restore function on windows, if you know when you did it, go to restore and pick the date before you stipped ie 8 off your machine. now when you use restore anything you did after that date will not be there so, if you added anything please back up say your word doc. pics programs you will have the cd's.

Trojan horse virus problem


Hello there.

Trojan problems can be a pain, luckily you can try an online web based scanner that should hopefully identify and remove the majority of the infections found.

I would recommend installing and scanning inside Firefox if possible, but Internet Explorer works too.
Click here and click "Scan Now. It's Free!" ten "scan now". Once it loads select My Computer and it will scan the entire computer.

This may take some time but once it completes it will prompt you to remove any infections found. If you are unsure please upload the picture of the final screen, to show us.

ps: you can download Firefox from here

Hope this helps.
