Turn off Safe mode

safe mode exists to boot into windows and fix problems, you can only get past it by fixing said problems, they could be drivers or programs, typically booting with the pc. I would suggest unhooking the internet, and switching all progams from booting with pc, Use the keyboard shortcut "Windows Key + R" and the "Run" window will open. In the text box, write "msconfig" and press Enter or OK and the MsConfig window will open. Also, in Windows 10, Windows 8, you can open the Run window from the shortcuts menu in the bottom left corner. Then disable all active non microsoft programs, reboot and hopefully you should be in normal windows, you can then enable programs one at a time and narrow down what the problem is.

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!

Internet barely works

Step 1:
Most of the programs running in the background of your computer start automatically during PC reboot. These applications were added to the Windows startup menu during default installation. However, you probably do not need all of the programs that are currently running on your computer all the time. This only slows down your PC and the reboot time. Fortunately, you can access the Windows startup menu and remove the programs you do not need to have running automatically. Turning off the programs shuts them down until you enable them again through the "Start" menu.

Go to the "Start" menu, type "msconfig" in the "Start Search" box and press "Enter" to start the System Configuration utility. Click the "Startup" tab in the System Configuration window. Uncheck the programs that you want to turn off and stop from running in the background. Click "Apply" and "OK" to save the new settings. Restart your computer.

NORTON INTERNET SECURITY 2011 just installed from CD. All seems ok but... When I switch on the computer I get the speech bubble saying "automatic updates is turned off. Click here to fix the problem....


I think you are confusing the Windows Update with the Norton Automatic update.

Please open your Norton product and see if the status is at "Secure" on the top of the program.
If it is secure with a green mark, you need not worry.

If it shows at "Risk", do the following steps:
Check if the Windows update is turned on or off.
Check if the computer's date and time is running correctly
If the problem still persist, reinstalling the Norton program will definitely fix the issue

To reinstall we need to first download the setup file from the link, which will download the latest version of Norton Internet Security.

Double click the downloaded file and that will remove the existing version and install the latest version.

Windows xp professional . it takes 4 minutes to get my home page

Well, there could be multiple reasons or factors causing this. The first could be what web browser you're using, I would recommend Google Chrome among all else, but I would strongly advise you to not use Internet Explorer. The second problem could be that your computer and/or web browser is loaded down with many different types of unnecessary files, and a good fix for this would be to clean up your computer with a program that specializes in doing such. There are many free alternatives for good cleaning programs, may I suggest using Glary Utilities, Eraser, and Smart DeFrag. The third thing could be your network connection, if you're experienced at working with wireless networks than you should be able to handle it, otherwise I'd suggest calling a friend who is experienced in such or calling your internet provider for further assistance. Another thing could your computer itself, it could just be old. I would suggest to purchase a new computer at least once every 3 years. I hope this helps.

Update hp pavilion dv6000 with vista home premium

The easiest solution to this is to download a free program which applies a series of known fixes to repair Windows problems.  What this program will do in your case is repair and re-enable the Windows update side of things.  Please follow these steps:
  1. Download Dial-A-Fix from here:
  2. When it has downloaded, unzip it to a folder, and run the program.
  3. You will see a Window appear with lots of tick boxes.  Look for the section called WU/WUAU, which stands for "Windows Update/Windows Update: Automatic Update".
  4. Tick all the boxes in that section, and also the button called "Flush Software Distribution".
  5. THen click the big Go button down the bottom.
  6. After the processes have run, restart your computer.
To check if automatic updates are running, try this:
  1. Right click on My Computer and select Properties
  2. On the properties page go to the Automatic Updates tab.
  3. Select to never check for updates and click apply.
  4. Now click on the recommend setting of checking daily and automatically installing updates and click apply again.
  5. THis will cause the automatic update service to check for updates within the next 10 minutes, even if they have been scheduled for 3am.
  6. If automatic updates are running OK you will see a yellow shield appear down the bottom right of the screen saying that it is downloading updates (that is if updates are available for your copy of Windows).

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 -
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.
