Laptop hanging off


If your laptop is hanging while you are working, press this combination keys:
Ctrl Alt Del.
If you are using windows XP, it should automatically take you to task manager.
But if you are using windows vista or windows 7, it would show you options, of which you are to select 'task manager'.
End the tasks the are not responding by right clickin it and selecting 'end task'.
If that task still refuses to end, still in the task master pane, go to 'processes'.
Select the processs running the nonresponsive task. Eg, if internet explorer is the non responsive task, the process would be 'explorer.exe'.
End that process.

If it stil doesnt work, then select 'end all processes', and restart the system.
Hope this was helpful?
Success.

Hi, my laptop gives the continous message of "Relevant Knowledge" has stopped working" How do i resolve this?


  1. The removal of Relevant Knowledge is pretty simple compared to other forms of spyware/adware. First, go to the Start Menu.

  2. 2

    Select Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs. For Vista users, select Control Panel -> Uninstall a Program (it's in small print under Programs). Search for Relevant Knowledge in the list.

  3. 3

    Single-click on RelevantKnowledge, and click Uninstall up near the top. It will take you through the process, thus ridding you of your spyware.

  4. 4

    Next, open your Task Manager by pressing Ctrl+Alt+Delete once. This will either open your Task Manager, or give you the option to open Task Manager. Make sure Relevant Knowledge is not on the list - if it is, End Process.

  5. 5

    Restart your computer. Relevant Knowledge should be gone! If it isn't gone, try this process over again.

Blank screen, can only start programms by task manager


Try to boot Vista into Safe Mode. Tap the F8 Key right after you turn on the computer until you get the Advanced Boot Up Menu
and use the keyboard arrow keys to select Safe Mode. The next screen may ask you to select your operating systm. Select Vista, not the Recovery Console.

Does your task bar and icons appear in safe mode? If so, it might be one of your start up programs that is failing and causing explorer.exe to fail during normal boot-up into Windows and not allowing your taskbar and icons to appear. Click Start and type in msconfig and hit enter then click the Start Up tab and look at all the programs that start up when Vista is starting up. Do Not uncheck anything in the list that you do not recognize as you may uncheck drivers or Vista starting programs that you computer needs to start up Vista properly. Google anything you don't recognize and uncheck any Start Up programs you do not need to start when Vista boots up, like Quicktime player or Adobe Reader for example. (This would also help your boot up time into Vista)

Sounds like explorer.exe crashed. Try opening up the Task Manager again, and Click File > New Task and type in explorer.exe. See if the task bar and your desktop icons appear.

If they appear for a brief moment then disappear again, the Windows explorer.exe is corrupted. Explorer.exe will try to start and then fail again. You may need to use System Restore to bring your computer back to a date and time when the computer was working properly, before the Vista update.

INSTALL.LOG ??


Can you open task manager ? When this msg come dont terminate it. Open task manager and watch which process is holding that error. Kill this process. Try to erase another file. If it happen again, you are attacked by a great virus. There is one solution without installing OS again. Scan your HDD with another PC which have a recently updated virus scanner. Keep informing.

No Icons on Windows Vista


Sound like your explorer.exe process is crashing. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del and select Task Manager. Press the button to view processes from all users, and look for "explorer.exe". If it's there, select it and hit End Task and then move on to the next step. If it isn't then just do this: select File->New Task, and type in "explorer" without quotes in the new window that pops up. When you hit OK it should load up. If explorer appears in the Task Manager for a moment and then disappears then something is consistently causing it to crash. You will then need to boot from the install DVD and perform a repair. Once you can get back into Windows then immediately do a virus scan and a spyware scan. I recommend Avast Anti-Virus and Hitman Pro.
