How to widen my screen

    • 1 Use the zoom in and out shortcut with your mouse. Many programs such as Internet Explorer, Firefox and Microsoft Word allow users to zoom in and out quickly using their mouse and keyboard. Hold down the "Control" ("Ctrl") key, and then move the mouse wheel forward to zoom in or backward to zoom out until the text fits your screen to your liking.
    • 2 Use the zoom command from your program's menus. If you don't have a mouse with a wheel or the mouse zoom shortcut does not work, try locating a "zoom" command in the "View" menu of your program. Many programs have an option to zoom in and out under the "View" menu, which will make text larger or smaller. You may have to select "Zoom in" or "Zoom out" several times before the text is the right size.
    • 3 Change your screen resolution. Altering your screen resolution can change the size of windows and text on your screen. Right click the desktop, select "Properties" (Windows XP) or "Personalize" (Windows Vista and 7), click the "Settings" tab (XP), or the "Display Settings" link (Vista) or click "Display" and then "Adjust Screen Resolution" (7). Adjust the resolution slider up or down, click "Apply" and then click "OK."

DIY Manual PC Tune-Up

Is your computer running slow? Are you experiencing lags watching streaming videos? Do you experience popup error messages every now and then? Then, your computer might be in need of a tune-up !

There are a lot of free pc tune up softwares that can be downloaded from the World Wide Web or the Internet but you never know what they automatically do on your computer. The best still is a manual pc tune up for your computer so that still, you have full control on what's coming in, going out and what's being deleted.

I don't see any disadvantages in performing pc tune ups. It's like having your car maintained for an oil change. In short, PC Tune Up is part of maintaining your machine as a painter cleans his brushes and palette after he finishes his "Obra".

PC Tune-ups can prevent virus infections that your antivirus software does not recognized yet. It also optimizes the performance of both your PC and Internet connection. In some cases, it can resolve a "page cannot be displayed" error messages. It helps you save time and money from loosing your memories and work files, for having it serviced for a wrong reason and a lot more that may result to stress and annoyance. So, without further adieu, let's start maintaining your computer.

Manual PC Tune-Up

I. Files and Programs
First step is the number one rule you might want to always remember when performing maintenance on your computer: BACK UP your important files. You may use all sorts of media (CDR, DVDR, usb flash/hard drive, etc) but never in a hard drive partition that you use with your computer.

Second, REMOVE/DELETE UNUSED FILES/PROGRAMS. As you have backed up your important files, delete files that has been idle for quite sometime. Emty Recycle Bin and uninstall all programs as well that has been idled, toolbars that crops you internet browsing and the likes.

NOTE: Leave only the active files and programs that you regularly use.

Now, let's perform a disk clean up.
Click "start" > Open "My Computer/Computer" > Right click "C:" > Click on "Disk Cleanup" button > Tick all empy boxes > Hit "ok" button.

Then, reset internet option settings.
Click "start" > Open "Control Panel" > Switch to "Classic View/Small Icons" > Launch "Internet Options" > Delete Temporary Internet Files (may vary on Windows version) from "General" tab > Click on "Security" button > reset all zones (internet, intranet, trusted sites and restricted sites) to its default settings > Click on "Content" tab > Click on "Clear SSL State" > Click on "ok" button > Click on "Connections" tab > Click on "LAN Settings" button > make sure nothing is ticked on all 4 boxes > Click on "ok" button > Click on "Advanced" tab > Click on "Restore advanced settings" > Click on "ok" button.

Lastly, let's clear all the cobwebs.
· Press [windows key]+[R] > Type "temp" > Hit "ok" button > Press "Ctrl"+"A" > Press "Shift"+"Delete" > Press "ok" button.
· Press [windows key]+[R] > Type "%temp%" > Hit "ok" button > Press "Ctrl"+"A" > Press "Shift"+"Delete" > Press "ok" button.
· Press [windows key]+[R] > Type "prefetch" > Hit "ok" button > Press "Ctrl"+"A" > Press "Shift"+"Delete" > Press "ok" button.

NOTE: Do not mind files that aren't allowing you to delete. You may leave them as it is.

II. Windows Registry
You may use any free windows registry cleaner that you can download, install and run on your computer, off from the internet. The most popular registry cleaner program, as of today, is CCleaner (free version). But if you find CCleaner is too confusing or technical for you, I suggest you use either Wise registry cleaner or Comodo system cleaner. Compare and pick only one program. I recommend for you to uninstall them after use.

III. Hardware
Dust, cobwebs, and worse loose screws that might create a short circuit inside your Desktop. For laptops, nothing much to do but to wipe surface with an anti-static cloth to clean them. De-static your body first by holding to an unpainted metal for about 30 seconds. Remove side cover panel of your desktop and if you find any of these dirt in you computer, tighten up gently or replace screws then use an anti-static electronic equipment aerosol spray to blow away all obstructions. Reseat cables if and when necessary. Place back side cover.

Perform manual pc tuneup every after 3 to 6 months depending on the loads of work you do on your computer. Enjoy!

NOTE: This is not a fix for virus infection issues.

Thank you for using Fixya!

My pc was very slowly running

Your machine is old, there's not much you can do. Remove any programs you don't use, stop programs from starting-up with the OS, and increase your RAM:

My computer is freezing up constantly

It would be best if you do a series of tests for virus and malware infection. This is the most common cause for slowdowns of PCs. Here's a great tutorial for improving PC security using free programs.
Another problem may be some new programs or updates you installed. If you can pinpoint the time when these slowdowns started, and you can relate it with a program you installed at that time, then chances are this new program/update is causing the PC to stall.
Lastly, if nothing helps from the software side, then your PC may be suffering from a failing power supply unit. Desktop PCs older than 2 years are prone to this kind of a failure. If this is the case, you'll need to either get a new power supply unit, or repair the one you have. New PSUs are about $30-50 for low to mid range products, and the repair may cost less if you find a good computer repair shop or a TV repair shop. Most common failure in PSUs are the capacitors at the output, which serve as current stabilizers.

How do I get to the "disk cleanup" so I can clean


Hewlett Packard (HP) computers come with preinstalled programs that some users enjoy. Others, however, find these complimentary programs cumbersome. If you do not plan on using some of the default HP programs, then you're better off removing them altogether. Lingering preinstalled software chews up your hard drive space, leading to a decrease in overall storage capacity as well as system performance. Luckily, you can clean up a new HP computer in just a few steps with the right know-how.

Click on the "Start Menu."

Click to select "Control Panel" from the list of options.

Click on the heading labeled "Uninstall a program." This is located beneath the "Programs" heading in the main Control Panel window. A new window will open up with a listing of all programs currently installed on your new HP computer.

Browse the list of programs until you notice any unwanted software. Click on the software that you want to remove and then click the "Uninstall" button located toward the top of the screen.

Click "Continue" when prompted by Windows. This will trigger an automated uninstall procedure, removing the clutter from your computer. Once you've purged your computer of unwanted HP software, you can further clean the computer of unused files, Internet cookies and cache files for even better performance.

Close all currently open windows.

Click on the Start Menu again.

Click "All Programs." A list of programs will expand to the right-hand side of the Start Menu.

Click on the "Accessories" folder to view its contents.

Click on the "System Tools" subfolder.

Click on "Disk Cleanup." This will open Microsoft's automated disk cleanup program, useful for purging unwanted files from your computer.

Click to "check" all the cleanup options that appear in the Disk Cleanup window. This will ensure that your system is completely cleaned of unneeded junk files; if any options are left unchecked, Windows will not delete certain files. Crucial system files and user files are not touched during disk cleanup, so you don't have to worry about losing your vital information during the process.

Click "OK" then select "Delete Files." Windows will then automatically remove unneeded files from your new HP computer according to Microsoft's website. This will free up hard drive space and help your PC run faster.

Why is my dell dimension 3000 with xp keeps getting file download- security warning for everything I try to open? Even opening the internet icon on my computer

I see XP, sorry ok here's your fix...
Because a firewall restricts communication between your computer and the Internet, you might need to adjust settings for some programs that prefer an open connection. These adjustments are called "exceptions." To learn more about exceptions, see the Using the Exceptions Tab section of this article.
Windows Firewall now has three settings: On, On with no exceptions, and Off.
On: Windows Firewall is turned on by default, and normally you should leave it that way. When you choose this setting, Windows Firewall blocks all unsolicited requests to connect to your computer, except for requests to programs or services selected on the Exceptions tab.
On with no exceptions: When you select the Don't allow exceptions check box, Windows Firewall blocks all unsolicited requests to connect to your computer, including requests to programs or services selected on the Exceptions tab. Use this setting when you need maximum protection for your computer, such as when you connect to a public network in a hotel or airport, or when a dangerous virus or worm is spreading over the Internet.
Tip There is no need to keep Don't allow exceptions selected all the time, because when it is, some of your programs might not work correctly, and the following services are blocked from accepting unsolicited requests:
• File and Printer Sharing
• Remote Assistance and Remote Desktop
• Discovery of network devices
• Preconfigured programs and services on the exceptions list
• Additional items that you've added to the exceptions list

Note When you select Don't allow exceptions, you can still send and receive e-mail, use an instant messaging program, or view most Web pages.
Off: This setting turns Windows Firewall off. When you choose this setting, your computer is much more vulnerable to harm from unknown intruders or viruses from the Internet. This setting should only be used by advanced users for computer administration purposes, or if your computer is protected by another firewall.
To adjust Windows Firewall settings
Click Start and then click Control Panel.
In the control panel, click Windows Security Center.
Click Windows Firewall.
In the General Tab make your selection.


Windows Firewall General tab
Note Settings that you create when your computer is joined to a domain are stored separately from those created when your computer is not joined to a domain. These separate groups of settings are called profiles.

courtesy of

If the above does not work you may also need to adjust your internet security settings. You can do this by the following:
Open up your internet explorer
click on tools
select internet options
click on the security tab
change the sttings to medium, rather than what they are. Click apply and ok. Exit your browser and restart it to try to connect again. Let me know if the above options do not work and we will try the next step. Hope this helps!

My netbook runs slow and freezes

There are many reasons for slowness and freezing. Computer specs (ram, processor speed, connection speed)) could be not enough for today's internet.

Internet cache, temporary internet files, temporary files should be cleared.

Try defragmenting the hard drive.

And try downloading a program like CCleaner from Piriform.
