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.

Computer turns itself off and on, and it runs dog slow


Could be a virus. I had a similar one, and I had to format harddrive and install windows from scratch (was not recoverable). if you can get logged into windows, go to microsoft and download their free virus protection. if not, go buy a new emachine.

I want to know how to do backups to an external hard drive. I have tried and it does not seem to work. I have Vista Home Basic and Premium on my desktop and laptop. Why am I having all this trouble. I hate...


Are you aware Vista has USB issues. It has some of the slowest transfer rates on USB. so if you are trying to transfer data from the Laptop / Desktop to an external drive it will take days and might even damage your devices for their continuous running.

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.

New desktop computer--has gotten incredibly slow-have av program


1: Download and run this: http://www.stevengould.org/index.php?Itemid=69&id=15&option=com_content&task=view
2: Download and run AntiMalware and RogueRemover Free from here:
http://www.malwarebytes.org/
3: Defragment your 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/

Let us know how it goes :)

My Pictures has suddenly slowed to a crawl.


1. The amount of pictures on your hard drive will not cause the slow ups that you are describing.
2. You can check your memory by removing one module and see if it helps. If it doesn't, check the other module by itself. I don't think it is though because if it were, you would be receiving some errors or some sort of random restart.
3. Look at your motherboard, specifically at the capacitors. Check to see if any of the capacitors have "popped", that is, are any of them rounded on top? They should all be flat. If just one has popped, it is your motherboard.
4. Also, run a scan of your hard disk. Your hard disk itself could be developing read errors and it's taking awhile for it to read the data. IMPORTANT: I would make it a point to make sure you have a backup of all your pictures asap because if this is the problem, it could crash at any time, possibly losing all your data.

Hope these tips help. Please don't forget to rate as fixya. Thanks.
