Question about Compaq Computers & Internet
Compaq Presario 6265AA S/N 3D2ALF2LS059 crashed. Restored hard drive factory fresh with disk that came with machine. Internet explorer loads up but locks down right away. Sometimes I get no page and sometimes I get partial page downloaded and it locks up. Downloaded fire fox of another computer and installed it and the internet runs fine. I have crashed it before and never had a problem restoring the hard drive. I have even deleted IE 6.0, downloaded the program from another computer and installed it and it still does the same thing.
Turn the system
restore off. System restore keeps everything in restore.
Meaning......... If you have spyware or a virus, it will stay in your
system. Run Spybot S&D (This program is free and is better than using
msconfig as long as you go through the settings and change everything to
the highest settings.) Then do the same with Adaware 2008 (sounds stupid to use
2 things for spyware, but one catches what the other one does
not.). I have links on my website
(tandnfamilyelectronics-online.com). These links go directly to the
download so you will not get the run around. You would do good to try a
program called Window Washer. This is a great program that completely
cleans anything in your computer that you do not need. It will not clean
out anything that you have to have. I have used this for years to clean
out my customers computers and have cleaned as much as 3 gigs of trash
out. If you contact me I will give you some tools that I have for free
that will do a great job on your computer. I have them ready to download
and I will give you the link.
Send me the complete specs of your system and I can help you more. I hope that this helps you. There is no reason the really buy a program for spyware when there are free things to use that work great. Free AVG is a great Antivirus and yes it is also free. It will check your e-mail coming and going. It will also let your friends now that the E-mail does not have a virus. It also has a spyware program that is free. This day and time with all of the spyware out on the net you can never have too many programs for spyware. I would not run all of them at the same time though. Make sure that you do not use your computer during any scan. Defrag is also something to do after you do everything else. Some people will tell you that should not reload your computer. If nothing seems to work then sometimes that is the only good way to get it repaired right. Most of the programs that come pre-installed on a store bought computer is useless and most are even trail software that causes problems when they expire. Let me know if this helps at all. Please rate me if it helps.
