Do another scan for trojans, spyware and malware using another scanner.
Things like Adaware can find things an anti-virus scanner is not even looking for.

Slowing slow and probems keep coming


Hello Nancy,
There are many reasons a computer can slow down. Here are some maintenance procedtures you should do on a regular basis.
You should defrag your hard disk ona regular basis to keep your computer up to speed. Many of these tasks can be automated with the scheduling features in Windows.
Check for and install any operating system updates. Make sure you have "Automatic Updates" turned on.
Run a full system anti-virus and anti-spyware scan. Make sure your anti-virus and anti-spyware software are up to date. If you don't have these on your computer, there are many good free anti-virus software. Do a Google search for free anti-virus and anti-spyware. Also, clear the cache on your browser. Delete all history and cookies and temp folders. There are also websites such as http://housecall.trendmicro.com/ that does free online scans.
You should also stop unwanted progams from stsrting. To do this go to Start menu, enter msconfig, and click OK. Click startup and uncheck startup programs you don't use. Then click services and uncheck services you don't use. If after doing this and something stops working that you need, again bring up startup and services and re-check the ones you want to run.

These basic maintenance steps should help keep your computer running up to speed.
I hope this helps you.

Why is my laptop so hot and running all the time? it's only 1.5 years old?? programs are slower too.....


hello,

It is normal for hp laptop to get hot when it is running. my own hp laptop will burn my lap if i put it on my lap while running.

If your laptop is slow, free up space in the hard disk because if the hard is fill up, it can make the laptop to be slow.

If it is still slow, then the laptop is contacted with a virus. scan the system with updated anti virus and delete the virus on your laptop or you format the laptop and re run windows.

Thanks for contacting Fixya.

Internet Explorer script error do you want to continue running scripts on this page? Library not registered


it could be possible that The author of the webpage you are accessing has simply made some sort of programming error and this is typically the most common reason.or that You are possibly running a pop-up killer of some kind which closes the pop-up too quickly which causes the script of the website to fail and thus giving you the error because it didnt complete.
possible You (still) have some sort of spyware or adware infection that tries to launch something such as a popup but causes script errors.
this is the most likely issue in your situation.

Solution:

1. Make sure your Anti-Virus software is up-to-date and then run a full system scan.

2. Try running a scan with other malware detection software. (Malwarebytes )

3. Be sure your are not running Rogue Anti-Virus software ( Security Center, Anti-Virus 2009, and Anti-Virus 2010).

4. Take a look into the Event Viewer to see the path of where the script is coming from. Some more detail may show up in the Event Viewer log)

5. Run windows updates and install any critical/important updates.

hope this helps

Pop up keeps asking for user name and pass word.


It sounds like you may have been infected somehow. Try running an anti-spyware and anti-virus to do a scan of your computer. Also, send a note to you email provider.

After use internet my pc,s speed very slow.


Your computer may be infected with a virus. Are you running any anti virus software?

Do a simple scan of your machine using anti virus software - If you have none installed, download and install this.

I have included AVG as its free.
http://www.avg.com/

Log off from the internet and run the scans - if you haven't run one before this may take several hours.

The clean up should remove any old entries and also detect any virus which may be slowing down your machine.

My Acer Aspire 3680 is extremely slow, breaking up, giving error messages. Started yesterday but has gotten continually worse since then.


Have you installed any new programs recently?
Definitely sounds like spy-ware or a virus, check your system out. If you don't have anti-virus software installed, go here:http://shop.trendmicro.com/trialpay/
and run the anti-virus scan. I'm guessing you've got an infectected PC. For a free anti-virus program, you can go here: http://free.avg.com/download-avg-anti-virus-free-edition If after running the anti-virus scan your machine doesn't run better, please post back for more suggestions and best of luck to you!

Monitor keeps blanking out. won't read or burn dvds. goes into 'preparing to standby' and freezes have to manually turn computer off. running very slow.


Possibly a video card problem or severe virus. First download free Avast anti virus software and run preboot scan upon installation. If this does not fix the problem try doing a system restore to a time before this problem occurred. Start - programs - accessories - system tools - system restore

Lay your finger flat down, with the first section of your finger above the reader, then keeping it totally flat, gently but firmly and slowly, glide it across the reader, moving it toward your right side after you have ran it across, as make an "L" shape. Be sure to go slow, and keep it flat.
