Question about E-Machines PC Desktops

1 Answer

E machines PC: has been running very well until recently when I upgraded BT Yahoo and macafee - since then it repeatedly crashes (Unresponsive) when using internet explorer and the CPU indicator flashes full green (at 100%). Runs very slowly. I have tried defraging, and have used power clean software to try and freshen it up without joy. Any thoughts?

    What operating system are you running? Could you try one thing for me please. Disable your McAfee and then see what your CPU usage is. If it's close to normal there's a patch if this is causing the probleb. Also, right click on your taskbar, click on Task Manager. Under processes see if (before you turn off McAfee) there's a process named scvhost.exe using up a lot of your CPU. Let me know what you find. Thanks.

Try disabling McAfee/Norton Internet Security and tell us if that helps. It's notorious for killing machines...

Every time I try to sign in to Yahoo answers my computer insists on taking me too my BT account


It is doing that with everyone I'm afraid. BT has launched their new mail site and this will keep happening until they get it right. You can go to yahoo by clicking on the shortcut at the top of the BT page.

Bt internet mail login


BT had 2 different accounts---BT Yahoo Mail and BT Mail
They are being merged to just BT Mail. You Have more
Than likely been removed. Suggest you set up your own account
with Yahoo or Google and reconstruct your contact list.
That way when you change service providers keep your own E-Mail account. Don't use the service providers account.

Dell Inspiron 570 with Macafee anti-virus and Win 7 BSOD's trying to uninstall preinstalled Macafee product. Haw can I get rid of it and install another (Norton) product? I have 2 IDENTICAL Dells


LOL, you are going from one terrible product to another one. Norton and McAfee are core hogs, use a lot of resources and will slow your system to a crawl, especially if you let it expire. Why would you want something on your system that is so difficult to uninstall? Give em the boot. Try one of the FREE Antivirus programs such as AVG, AVAST or Microsoft Security Essentials.

Dell did not create this monster, your third party software is the culprit and they just don't deal with it if it's not their product.

Anyway if you tried the normal uninstall by clicking Start/Programs and opening the McAfee Folder and clicking uninstall and you're getting the BSOD, maybe try uninstalling it in Safe Mode With Networking.

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn itback on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFEMODE. Take the Safe Mode With Networking option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will lookdifferent to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this isnormal.You can also go into the Control Panel and Uninstall the Program. Click Start/Control Panel look for Program and Features or Programs or Uninstall.
You can try the McAfee Removal Tool. Download and Install it, then run it. The link is below:http://download.mcafee.com/products/licensed/cust_support_patches/MCPR.exe

Gateway LX6810-So many problems, won't boot unless forced on and off several times, shuts down with blue crash screen constantly, fails after hibernation, bios won't even load sometimes until repeated...


I would RMA it if you can. If not run diagnostics on RAM and HD. If its not one of those i would suspect the motherboard. Although most Gateways use Intel Desktop Boards, which are halfway decent. If it is the board I suggest replacing it with Asus.

Service pack3 crashed puter - after reinstall machine thinks extra hard drive is a disk drive.


You can get to the BIOS by hitting DEL or F2 at start up.

However, that does not have anything to do with a drive letter.

Drive letter designation is set in
START>SETTINGS>CONTROL PANEL>ADMINISTRATIVE TOOLS>COMPUTER MANAGEMENT>DISK MANAGEMENT.

Hope this helps.
