Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ5 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Hi there. A friend decided my computer is too slow so deleted some programs. It seems that the program for my PC to "see" the Panasonic DMC-FZ5 has gone. I use my camera almost daily to download my pictures and since the "clean up" the PC doesn't respond to the connection? Do I need a download? Or a GUN to shoot my soon to be ex friend. There isn't a progam disk in the packaging the camera was purchased in? Please help. I feel like my hands are in hand cuffs!! Thanks Sheryl

Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

Also, consider using a knife instead of a gun. It's quieter :-)

Tuneup utilities prefetch data deleted windows 7 slow


Basically, the prefetcher is a Windows component that speeds up the boot process and start times of programs by prefetching data.

I recommend you never delete the prefetch data.

If you or another program delete prefetch data or the folder, this can slow the computer down until the prefetch data is rebuilt. Windows rebuilds this each time on reboot and during program start ups.

If you are using a cleanup utility, turn off any options that delete prefetch data. In CCleaner, this option is unchecked automatically. TuneUp 10 does not have an option for prefetch data and does not seem to delete this data. You may receive a message when using the program that states, "prefetch data deleted" which is informing you the prefetch is empty.

How To Clean Up Your Computer


Everything in life needs maintenance, and your computer is no different. Everything you do and see on your computer takes up space. Over time, heavy use can start to weigh it down and make your pc run slow. What can you do when your computer becomes cluttered and slow? That's easy! You can clean it up and reorganize the stored files for optimal performance.<br /> <br /> The first thing to do to clean up your pc is to run "disk cleanup". Disk cleanup is a program that deletes clutter and creates more useable memory. If you are using Windows Xp, you can find disk clean up by clicking on "start", then "programs" and "accessories". Then slide over to "system tools" and click on "disk cleanup".<br /> <br /> After clicking on disk cleanup, your computer will display a message that says it is calculating how much space can be recovered on your "C" drive. When it is finished, you will see a screen that shows choices of files in which to purge on the left and the "ok" button on the bottom. Click on every box that is available and choose ok to begin cleaning your disk.<br /> <br /> This process can take a while, depending on how long it has been since the last time you cleaned your computer. When its finished, the program will have removed all unnecessary files to free more memory space. But we are not done yet! There is still one more program to run the complete the process and leave your computer running at its best. That program is called "disk defragmentor" and its found in the same place as disk cleanup.<br /> <br /> To run disk defragmentor, click on "start", "programs" find "accessories" and then choose "system tools". Click on disk defragmentor and a window will open asking which drive you wish to defragmentate. Choose your "C" drive and then click "ok" or "defrag" at the bottom.<br /> <br /> Disk defragmentor reorganizes files to bring all of your free space to the front of the drive where it is needed most. <br /> <br /> Running both of these programs once every couple of weeks will keep your computer at its best.

Restoring an Acer Extensa 5620 to factory defaults


LOL, good luck using the disks. Most times they don't work.

Why not just create a user account with the friends name then sign on using the account you just created and delete the other user accounts. It will delete all your My Documents folder (music, pictures, videos, documents).

Click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts and select the option to create a new user account. Use your friends name to create the account then restart the computer. When it boots back up, log in using the name of the newly created account. Then click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts and select a user account to delete. When prompted about saving anything for the account select the option to delete everything associated with the account.

Now if you want to remove any programs after you've deleted the accounts click Start/Programs and search the program list for folders to uninstall. If it has an uninstall option, take it.

Any program you want to delete that is not in a folder in the program list or does not have an uninstall option can be deleted by clicking Start/Control Panel then look for Add or Remove Programs, or Program Features or Uninstall Program (just depends on your operating system). Open it and let it populate the programs, then highlight the program you want to uninstall by clicking it and select Remove or Uninstall.

check the event viewer by going to start>right click my computer>manage ... click on the left pane whre it says even viewer and click on applications.. look for a red ballon with a white x at the time when your application crashed and double click on it (there may be a few of those if it has crashed before.. and not all of them may be about the the application you're troubleshooting.. so read a little bit on the error and see if it's related with your problem and post the information you see there. or google the error code.
