    Just in case you do ( I know you will), let me know what operating system you are running, what anti-virus you have, if you have any anti-spyware or anti-adware and if everything is up to date and run frequently. Be honest. Thanks.

Dell inspiron stuck welcome screen start


Hi sugi!

When you have experienced this the first time, what you need to do is restart your computer to the Windows Advanced Boot Options* then choose Last Known Good Configuration by pressing your up/down arrow key to highlight it then press Enter. If this option did not work for you, restart your computer again to Windows Advanced Boot Options*, but this time choose Safe Mode. Once in safe mode, perform system restore by following the steps provided by Microsoft thru this link.

I hope this works for you. Kindly reply/comment for further assistance. Good Luck!

Change of password


The browser/anti-virus programs have nothing to do with your password. Go to Start>Control Panel>Users and you will see the options for changing the password, picture, permissions. Yours is a server operating system and requires a password. Servers are all about security. If you have forgotten your password you will have to boot to the cd and follow the prompts for the Windows password, boot to the Setup for the machine's password. Steve Medley

If you have 50 units of computer working the same time such as uploading big files, the problem for the rest among your 7 computers that work fast is between the hub connectors on the network system. You can check this connectors by replacing those slow ones to that faster computers.
Then if your faster computers slow down and the replaced connectors from slow working bacomes fast then the problem is in your hub distribution connectors.
