Get an antivirus(NOT NORTON!!!!!) run the antivirus, then reboot. this should solve the problem. if it doesn't, try running the windows recovery disks.DO THIS AS A LAST RESORT ONLY, IT MAY ERASE SOME PROGRAMS!! that being said, i hope you have success. if that fails and you are fed up with windows, try running linux. to find a version of linux to try, look on www.distrowatch.com for one that can be run as a live cd. i suggest puppy linux. note: this is free software, but you will need to burn it to a cd before you try it. look on the support/home page websites for more information and help.

Do you have anti-virus software installed? If not, you may be infected, and your system is being used by the virus to send out spam e-mails.

Desktop working slow


Many computers have just too many unnecessary programs running. Google "Service Settings" or something similar for advice on how to set your services. Setting explanations: Automatic will start at boot time. Manual allows Windows to start a service when needed. Disabled will stop a service from starting, even if needed. Be very cautious about disabling a service for that reason.

Hi team! I have LaCie desktop hard drive, 500GB. USB 2.0 Which I have now had for over a year or so. Up until about three hours ago I was using the desktop hard drive when suddenly there was a...


Before moving ahead with this , i need you to try the hard drive on another PC and see if you have the same problem. If you dont then your data is fine. If you have the same problem tho, you might need to carry the hard drive to a PC repair store and see if data recovery is possible. Please let me know if helps you at all.

Verbatim 250 GB drive suddenly not recongnized


Sounds like either the HDD or the USB controller card is almost dead.

Sorry for the news, if it is the USB controller you should be able to have the drive transferred into a new enclosure and continue using it. However if it's the circuitry on the Hard drive itself you may be in need of more serious assistance.

You can take the drive to most computer stores and have someone tranfer it into a new enclosure if you need the data and don't mind the risk of voiding your warranty. If that doesn't work, let me know and I can point you in the direction of a service company that can attempt to extract you files from the damaged drive.

Compression isn't such a good idea on a drive, it doesn't always de-compress correctly.

It may be worth testing your memory with MemTest: http://www.memtest.org/

Firelite 160gb HD not recognized


Make sure that there is no "HD protection", in which the hard drive can only be connected to one computer. Also, try going to google and searching for some drivers for your computer to download and install. Then try plugging your hard drive in again.
