You can disable it ->

type msconfig and hit enter
go to startup tab and
press disable all (or uncheck the program you don't want to start up automatically) and
then press ok
then restart your computer

if not worked then perform another way

Hi Ioma,
I don't know about your local library system, but most won't let you connect an external device for fear of getting hacked or set up with a virus, but that isn't the answer to your question.
You place the stick into the usb port on your laptop, then open the Windows Explorer, click on the file you wish to put on the stick, then right click the item, select "Send to:" and then select the stick, it should go there automatically. You may also drag the file from the folder it is located in and hover over the stick, then release, that will also accomplish the task.
Any further questions, don't hesitate to ask,
Joe

I 've probleme with my driver of wi_fi on acer aspir 4333 I want to donwload how and where I have installed on my laptop one driver for wiless last time I want to actived before use


Don't know where you downloaded the last Wi-Fi driver to. Don't worry about it.

Suggest you download again, and this time watch where the file will go.

http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/drivers

Left-click on Notebook, then Aspire, then scroll down the sidebar, and left-click on Aspire 4333.

Click on the wireless driver you need. Broadcom or Atheros.

When the small window comes up, make sure there is a green dot in the circle to the left of Save File.
If there isn't a green dot in this circle, left-click in the circle.
Now left-click on OK.

Another small window will come up.
Look in the heading (Top of window) to see where the file will go.

In the heading you may see Desktop, or My Documents, or Downloads as part of the heading.
(Desktop, Documents, or Downloads for WinVista, and Win7)

Write it down. This is where the file will download to.

Desktop: The file will be on your desktop screen.

My Documents: Left-click on Start, My Documents. (Or windows logo button, Documents)

Downloads: Left-click on Start, My Documents, and DOUBLE-click on Downloads.
(Or windows logo button, Documents, double-click on Downloads)

When you see the file name, DOUBLE-click right on it.
Follow the instructions of the Installation Wizard.

(Essentially just left-click on Next, Next, and Finish. Do Not change any settings. Windows knows where to put the driver file. Restart your computer)

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Regards,

I am getting an error everytime after 5 minutes, w...


Could you please provide me the exact error message?

However to stop the system shutdown first follow these steps.

Disable automatic system restart.

1. Restart the computer and press the f8 key to open the Advanced Boot Options menu.
2. Select the Disable automatic restart on system failure option.
3. Restart the computer to accept this change.
Then go to safe mode

This problem occurs after a memory dump file (error log file) is written by Windows XP. Because the memory dump file flag not reset in Windows XP the memory dump file will contiue to be written every time Windows is restarted.

1. Restart the computer and immediately press f8 repeatedly. Use the arrow keys to select Safe Mode and then press enter .
2. Click Start , right-click Computer , and then select Properties .
3. Click Advanced system settings , grant permission to continue if prompted, and then click the Advanced tab.
4. On the Advanced tab, click Settings
  1. In the Virtual Memory section, click Change .
  2. For Paging file size for selected drive, click No Paging File , and then click Set .
  3. Click Yes after the following warning appears:
If the paging file on volume X: has an initial size of less than xx megabytes, then the system may not be able to create a debugging information file if a STOP error occurs. Continue anyway?
(X is the drive letter and xx is the amount of RAM installed on your computer minus 1 megabyte.)
  1. Click System Managed Size .
  2. Click OK four times to return to the Windows Desktop Screen and then restart.
For more information plz check the below doc from HP.
I hope this will definitely resolve your issue.
If not plz get back with the exact error message so I can give you better solution on this.
If you find this helpful then Plz vote for me..Dreamkam

I need to open web browser to past a letter from a web sight


If I understand you correctly, you need to open a letter in a web browser and it is not opening automatically. If this is happening you have one of three problems;
1. You computer does not know how to open this type document. To fix this, right click the document and go to "OPEN" and then choose your web browser program you like ( Opera, Firefox, iExplorer, etc ). You can also click the small check box to allow this document to open these documents with a web browser, EVERYTIME in the future.
2. Your document is not valid to be opened by a web browser. In this case look up the extension of the document on the Internet and find a suitable program to open it. For example: ".doc or .xyz )
3. If you web browser is working and refuses to open it, then it may be a security problem and you will have to change your setting in the browsers, security tab.

Good Luck

Problem on 3 operating sys after reformatting


This is a common annoyance some people has encounter after reinstalling Windows.
The problem is that everytime you turn your computer ON, or restart it, you have a list of Windows you can boot from....even though you "know" there is only one.
First of all look into the BOOT.INI file, and make sure you kmow the version that is currently active.
You can safely delete the other two.
Next time you reboot, your computer should start as usual.

PS
To bring up the BOOT.INI
Go to Run, and type CMD, press Enter
at the end of the string type: cd"space".. (two dots)
Keep doing this until you get to C:/
now type BOOT.INI

A notepad document will open, and you'll see all the options you see at boot up.
Just delete the ones you know you don;t need, and save that notepad document.

Restart your pc, and that is all..!!

Acer e-mail and encrytion problems


OTHER computers can only open Office documents if they also have the same version of office or a HIGHER (newer) version (backward compatibilitiy)
Office 2007 doc can open ONLY with Office 2007.
Both computers must have Office 2007.

But if you have Office 2007 you can open any OLDER Office doc (Office 2003, Office XP, etc.)
If much older, (Office 95 or earlyier) there is a conversion program to open the older version with a newer version.

"Did your problem get solved? I hope my suggestion helped. Let me know."
