Pop ups and its slow


Well it can be many reasons why it's slow, but I have a few things you could do that may help.
First make sure you have security for your system. Microsoft Security Essentials is free. It can guard your system from viruses, spyware, and other malicious software. Below is some of my notes from college on speeding up your computer. I hope this helps.

================================================
Indexing service is a little program that uses a large amount of RAM. The program indexes and list files that are on your computer so when you do a search for things on your computer it can find it faster by scanning the index list. You don't need this service so to disable it.

Go to start
settings
control panel
add/remove programs
add/remove windows components
uncheck the index services
click next

Optimize display settings

visual items can waste system resources
to optimize:

start
settings
control settings
control panel
system
advanced tab
in the performance tab click settings
leave only the following ticked

show shadows under menus
show shadows under mouse pointer
show translucent selection rectangle
used drop shadows for icons labels on the desktop
use visual styles on windows and buttons

Speedup folder browser

when you open mycomputer the slight delay is because win xp searches for network files and printers every time you open windows explorer

mycomputer
tools folder options
view tab
uncheck the automatically search for network folders and printers check box
click apply
click ok
reboot comp


Remove the Desktop Picture

Your desktop background consumes a fair amount of memory and can slow the loading time of your system. Removing it will improve performance.

Right click on Desktop and select Properties
Select the Desktop tab
In the Background window select None
Click Ok


Remove Fonts for Speed

Fonts, especially TrueType fonts, use quite a bit of system resources. For optimal performance, trim your fonts down to just those that you need to use on a daily basis and fonts that applications may require.

Open Control Panel
Open Fonts folder
Move fonts you don't need to a temporary directory (e.g. C:FONTBKUP?) just in case you need or want to bring a few of them back. The more fonts you uninstall, the more system resources you will gain.

Free up disk space
The Disk Cleanup tool helps you free up space on your hard disk to improve the performance of your computer. The tool identifies files that you can safely delete, and then enables you to choose whether you want to delete some or all of the identified files.

Use Disk Cleanup to:

Remove temporary Internet files.

Remove downloaded program files (such as Microsoft ActiveX controls and Java applets).

Empty the Recycle Bin.

Remove Windows temporary files such as error reports.

Remove optional Windows components that you don't use.

Remove installed programs that you no longer use.

Remove unused restore points and shadow copies from System Restore.

Tip: Typically, temporary Internet files take the most amount of space because the browser caches each page you visit for faster access later.

Speed up access to data
Disk fragmentation slows the overall performance of your system. When files are fragmented, the computer must search the hard disk when the file is opened to piece it back together. The response time can be significantly longer.

Disk Defragmenter is a Windows utility that consolidates fragmented files and folders on your computer's hard disk so that each occupies a single space on the disk. With your files stored neatly end-to-end, without fragmentation, reading and writing to the disk speeds up.

When to run Disk Defragmenter
In addition to running Disk Defragmenter at regular intervals-monthly is optimal-there are other times you should run it too, such as when:

You add a large number of files.

Your free disk space totals 15 percent or less.

You install new programs or a new version of Windows.

Windows XP: How to link to the Control Panel from My Computer


The Control Panel is one of the most useful places in Windows XP to go when you need to change a setting or reconfigure a feature or function. It consists of a group of individual applets, and each applet deals with a specific part of your system.

Typically on most Windows XP systems, the Control Panel can be accessed directly from the Start menu, either as a submenu or as a link. However, you can also add the Control Panel to your My Computer folder, so that when you open My Computer, a link to the Control Panel will appear toward the bottom of the window. It will be displayed in the "Other" category (below "Hard Disk Drives" and "Devices with Removable Storage").

To enable the Control Panel to be displayed in My Computer, follow the steps below:

A. Open My Computer (or any other folder).

B. Click Tools on the menu bar.

C. Choose Folder Options.

D. In the Folder Options window, click on the View tab.

E. Scroll down the list of advanced settings until you see an option labeled "Show Control Panel in My Computer."

F. Put a check in the box next to that option.

G. Click Apply to save the change, or click OK to save and exit.

Now open My Computer -- you should see the Control Panel icon under your storage devices. If you ever want to remove the Control Panel icon from My Computer, follow the steps above but remove the check mark from the display option and then click Apply or OK.

Lost time on flip ultra video camera,was 2 hr, now 1:45


The Flip has a hidden file folder where it stores files that might not have been properly removed. To clear these off the Flip. Use the control panel on your PC to allow access to hidden folders and hidden files. Once this is enabled, search the Flip for a folder called "trashes". Emptying this folder will clear the memory and return the Flip to it's full time.

1995 chev tahoe...AC quit working. fan would


There is a resistor panel that controls the fan speeds behind the glove box on the dash. You remove the glove box and you will see the airbox. Sitting down in the left top, with 2 screws holding it in, will be the resistor panel. It consists of 4 springs and a resistor. All out of veiw, inside the airbox. Remove the 2 screws and unplug the plug. Pull out the old resistor and replace with the new one. It only cost around $15-20 bucks at the local auto part store. This will get your fan blowing. If your fan is blowing but the air is not cold, I would suggest to check and see if the compressor clutch is working properly. If not, try giving it a light tap while running. If it is working, you may want to recharge your freon.
