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.

Benefits
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!

Why does my mouse automatically scrolls up or down on my screeen


Your mouse might be bad or you could have a virus or infection that has hijacked your mouse. Boot up into safe mode and see if the mouse is ok. Then download and install MalwareBytes and run a Quick Scan.

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Take the Safe Mode With Networking option (this will give you internet connectivity) and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look different to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this is normal. When it boots up, open your internet browser and download and install MalwareBytes and run a Quick Scan.


Go to www.google.com and in the search box type: "Download cnet Malwarebytes" (without the quotes). Download and install malwarebytes from the sites download.cnet/malwarebytes. When the site opens up click on the Green Download button on the left. Do not click the Red Download button, that's junk. When it finishes installing the Gui Interface will open up with an offer to Accept a Trial Version or Decline. CLICK DECLINE you want the totally free version. Run a QUICK SCAN. As it scans, if it finds infections the number will be in red. When it finishes scanning, click SHOW RESULTS. A notepad text document will open up showing you the results. You can close the text document and go back to the Gui Interface where you will click REMOVE SELECTED RESULTS. The objects will already be selected for you. When it finishes removing the objects click ok and it will sometimes reboot your machine.


If the above steps does not fix the problem:

Try another mouse and see if it scrolls.

I'm trying to change the screen resolution while running windows 7 because I have no desktop showing on my monitor


Firstly, there appears to be many causes of the black screen issue. The symptoms are very distinctive and troublesome. After starting your Windows 7, Vista, XP, NT, W2K, W2K3 or W2K8 PC or server the system appears normal. However, after logging on there is no desktop, task bar, system tray or side bar. Instead you are left with a totally black screen and a single My Computer Explorer window. Even this window might be minimized making it hard to see.
If you have these symptoms you can safely try our free Black Screen Fix. It will fix the most common cause we have seen of this issue. Running the fix program is easy under normal circumstances, simply download with your browser using the link above and run the program. However, if you are trying to do this from the PC which has the black screen it is a bit more tricky. In these circumstances follow the procedure below: 1) Restart your PC 2) Logon and wait for the black screen to appear 3) Make sure your PC should be able to connect to the internet (black screen does not appear to affect this) 4) Press the CTRL, ALT and DEL keys simultaneously 5) When prompted, Click Start Task Manager 6) In Task Manager Click on the Application Tab 7) Next Click New Task 8) Now enter the command: "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" "http://info.prevx.com/download.asp?GRAB=BLACKSCREENFIX" Note this command assumes that you are using internet explorer as your browser, if not substitute your browser path and file details for those of iexplore.exe or use the Browser option of Task manager to locate it. 9) Click OK and your browser should start up and begin the download process 10) When prompted for the download Click run, the black screen fix program will download and run to automatically fix the issue. 11) Now restart your PC and the black screen problem will hopefully be gone.

My computer is hanging


there are many reasons why computers hang, i will site some
examples and possible solutions:

it hangs probbly because you open a program or application that
is out of the capability of your pc, refer to your computer specification
and compare it to the specification require of the program or application you might want to install or run in your computer.

Another thing, computer might hang because it has full of junk files, something like temporary files saved from internet, there might also some registry values in your pc that is not needed and causes some
error or trouble that leads to hanging. All of this junk files and registry
should be cleaned or deleted. Try to download and install "CCleaner"
from Filehippo.com.

Hope all of this will help to everyone...Thanks

Need to speed up my computer.


there are several areas that slow. you can address them one at a time.
1. internet... download and run ATF Cleaner here www.atribune.org/ccount/click.php?id=1 -
Run it everytime you exit your internet broswer, always run it twice and look for the "no files found" message. this free program belongs on everyone's desktop and almost eliminates the need for spyware programs.
2. Programs-- go to your programs list and UNINSTALL (NOT DELETE) any old programs your not using-- if there's no uninstall for the program, do it from the add/remove software area of the control panel.
3.remove all entries from the start-programs-startup folder.. This will not uninstall programs, just keep them from starting untill you actually need them (imagaine that)
4. Start- run- type in MSCONFIG, click the startup tab at the top. uncheck all boxes for stuff like yahoo messenger, real player, quicktime....make sure you dont touch the ones for your virus programs and video and sound cards. restart the computer, asnwer ok when it says you've changed things.
5. Get a can of canned air unplug the computer from power take the side or back off the case and blow all the cobwebs out. especially the fans and metal finned heatsincs under them.
there is more , but this should speed ya up a bit.
Regards..
