The hard disk needs regular service once a month to keep it running efficiently.
Disk Cleanup will remove temp files and other files that are no longer needed.
Use the programs Disk Cleanup and Defrag.

How do I get rid of unwanted photos of e mails


If you are talking about pictures attached to emails, they are stored in Temporary files. When you delete the temp files, the pictures and videos will be deleted as well. I recommend using CCleaner to clean out temp files, cookies, history, etc. Go to www.filehippo.com, scroll down in the center column and you will see CCleaner under System Tuning. Click on it and then click on Download Latest Version in upper right of screen. Wait for a dialog box asking to save it or run it. Unless you have more than one PC to share it with, select Run and it will install as soon as it is downloaded. Double click on the CCleaner icon and you will see the cleaning options. Select analyze to see what it finds and Run Cleaner to delete all of you unwanted temp files. Go to Options > Cookies to keep any login cookies you want to keep.

Offline very slow, though I defrag weekly, A pop


Sounds like a virus. Try installing Microsoft Security Essentials and Malware Bytes. Run those a few times and see if that fixes the problem. If it is still slow, reinstall windows.

Too long to loading mozilla firefox


Yes it does take a while, especially if you haven't cleared your temp files and cache for a while.
Download the following free program called Ccleaner and run it. It will get rid of all your useless files and clean up your desk. With luck, this will speed up your firefox boot up time. You will also gain disk space!

How to replace missing cmicnfg.cpl file


This error occurs after trying to uninstall the updated (and overrated) C-Media WDM Audio Driver for onboard sound that appears after upgrading to XP SP2 and/or going to WindowsUpdate. Likely the driver didn't work, so you tried uninstalling the driver and were going to put back the old Realtek AC'97 driver, but couldn't get rid of the updated driver.

To fix: Start, Run, type in "regedit" (no quotes), and delete the cmaudio string from
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run. This makes it so it will not run on startup and try to find the cpl file that was deleted during the uninstall or not installed correctly by the installer in the first place, whichever your case depending on when you started seeing the error. If your sound was working perfectly before this, you are done. To get your sound working again if it isn't, read on -

While still in the registry editor, click on the top computer icon in the Registry Editor to highlight it (so that it will do a complete search of the registry and not just from your present point forward), do a Find (Ctrl+F) and find and delete all KEYS related to cmaudio and C-Media, not just the string entries, but the KEYS, except for that entry in the Run key I mentioned above, just delete the cmaudio string for that one.

Delete the string "CMCPlus" from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Control Panel\Cpls to get rid of the Control Panel icon, and delete the file it points to that resides in C:\Windows\System32.

Download this remove utility from

http://ekiis.com/Freesoft/binary/remove11.zip

and run the file you find in the zip file - it can be ran without extracting it from the zip. Take out the C-Media Audio Driver line.

-- NOTE: This utility is for taking the name out of the Add/Remove Programs section only, and does not remove it from your computer, but it is very useful for issues like this when we are MANUALLY uninstalling a program to take it out of the Programs list and should work in 98/ME/2000/XP.

Delete these files from the C:\Windows\System32 directory (or "System" directory for Win98)

cmirmdrv.exe
cmirmdrv.dll
cmuda.dll

Delete everything you can readily delete in C:\Temp, C:\WINDOWS\prefetch (XP only), C:\WINDOWS\Temp, and C:\Documents and Settings\%YourName%\Local Settings\Temp (2000 and XP only), so that there will not be any files left for it to try to recover the driver from. You will likely have to leave things that start with hsperfdata_ and Perflib_Perfdata_***.dat files if you find them, but should be able to delete most others without changing attributes.

Now open the Device Manager (Right-click "My Computer", hit "Manage", then find Device Manager in the Computer Management console). Right-click the C-Media WDM driver under Sound, video, and game controllers, hit Uninstall. Then right-click the top computer icon listed there with your hostname beside it, hit "Scan for hardware changes". It should install a generic "Multimedia Audio Controller" instead of the "C-Media WDM Audio Driver", though you might see that C-Media Audio for just an instant before it reverts back to a generic driver (if it stays, you'll have to go back through the registry again, delete the system files again, and do a full search of your hard drive for those files so they don't get re-copied again). From here you can download your specific Realtek AC'97 Audio Driver setup.exe file here or use your motherboard's installation CD to re-install and you should have sound again.

good luck!!

Windows folder open command


If you mess around in the registry, or install some different software packages that add things to the right-click menu, you can end up with this problem
There's a quick and easy fix for this problem. Open up regedit.exe by using Start\Run and then browse down to this registry key:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell
Double-click on the default value and set it to "none" without the quotes, as seen here:
regfolder.png

This will restore the normal behavior.
If you are getting a message that says "Windows cannot find 'PET32.exe'", then at some point you had a virus, or still have a virus. First, make sure that you run a virus scanner to get rid of the virus. Then run the regsvr32 command above, which should fix the problem
I hope this help.
