    when download files they download and then disappear

  • fladnag May 11, 2010

    pookie43us Does this happen to all your downloads? are you using windows internet explorer or mozilla? Have you set your browser to delete all downloads, cookies etc when you log off the web?

    loveslave45 Normally all downloads will go to your "My Recieved Files" under "My documents" tab. Unless you change it of course, but the default way is the easiest.

Dx4400 boots to gateway logo and stays there for a long time


what windows do you have? what anti-virus? then check your
system tools program in Start/Accessories/, run Disk Cleanup
after system up. wait till finished then run Disk Fragmentor. If you
have a anti-malware program or anitvirus program run thoughs one after the other, cleanup first.
You may need to clean up your registry too. Make sure you have not downloaded any third party PC Cleaners, or programs which claim to keep pc running fast. these are usually bad and hog system resources. After doing what i have suggested, download CCleaner from Cnet.downloads web site. do a search to find it. after downloading CCleaner(free version), run the two top jobs on left of box. 1) Cleaner(broom icon), then after finished 2) Registry(stacked boxes icon). if 2) asks you if you want to save backup, say 'NO'. this will clean your harddrive of garbage and clean the PCs registry. These things can really slow you down.
Please DO NOT run anything else in CCLEANER. Only experienced computer users should change or runs any other program in it. Much harm could be done if YOU DO. Hope this helps.

Hp compaq dc7100 to factory settings because of a virus


Read the Manual. It will tell you how to get into Factory Restore.

Get online and got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "HP Support" or "Compaq Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Look for Manuals and search them for Factory Restore or System Recovery.



Why not just kill the virus or do a System Restore which will allow you to select a Restore Point (date and time) before you got the virus. System Restore will not delete your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs (unless the program was installed after the restore point you selected). System Recovery or Factory Restore will delete everything and set your computer back to when you first purchased it.



To get to System Recovery click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore. Select a date and time (Restore Point) before you go the virus.



You could also try downloading and installing MalwareBytes and run a Quick Scan.




Go to www.google.com and in the search box type: "Download cnet Malwarebytes" (without the quotes). Download and install malwarebytes from the sites download.cnet/malwarebytes. When the site opens up click on the Green Download button on the left. Do not click the Red Download button, that's junk. When it finishes installing the Gui Interface will open up with an offer to Accept a Trial Version or Decline. CLICK DECLINE you want the totally free version. Run a QUICK SCAN. As it scans, if it finds infections the number will be in red. When it finishes scanning, click SHOW RESULTS. A notepad text document will open up showing you the results. You can close the text document and go back to the Gui Interface where you will click REMOVE SELECTED RESULTS. The objects will already be selected for you. When it finishes removing the objects click ok and it will sometimes reboot your machine.

Mouse and keyboard not responding upon opening


LOL, good ole Norton. I hope you give Norton the boot once you get this fixed. Try booting up in Safe Mode and see if they work.

When thesite opens up click on the Green Download button on the left. Do notclick the Red Download button, that's junk.

When itfinishes removing the objects click ok and it will sometimes reboot yourmachine.

If after all the above they both still do not function, lets restore your system back to a day before Norton notified you to turn the computer off.

Click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/SystemRestore. Select a Restore Point (date and time) that is before youstarted having problems. System Restore does not delete you data, documentsmusic, pictures, videos or programs (unless the program was installed after therestore point you selected).

System Recovery loses all your data, documents, music, pictures, videos andprograms. It sets your system back to the time you first purchased it.

I have cyberdefender registry cleaner on my pc. How do I get it off? It won't let me delete it.


Go to www.filehippo.com download a program called "Revo Uninstaller" run the installer. All of your installed programs show up in the main window, double click on the program you want to delete. It will ask you if you're sure, Choose the advanced button and click next. Revo will initiate the programs uninstaller, if the uninstaller fails, that is ok because Revo will then take over. No matter what, do not reboot the machine until Revo is done. Once the programs uninstaller is finished, Revo will then search for any left over files and registry settings, if will be show up to two additional screens with files. Select all and delete all that is shown, when Revo is finished, you can now reboot the machine and the program will be gone.

I have downloaded the program, but cannot finish


Download the free program again and this time choose to save it to your desktop so you can find it easier or run it from the download location instead of saving.

My puter is sooooo slow and I am to broke to take anywhere--Help!!!!


This is a case of spyware possibly. Try the things that I am going to tell you. If these things do not work let me know.

Turn the system restore off. System restore keeps everything in restore. Meaning......... If you have spyware or a virus, it will stay in your system. Run Spybot S&D (This program is free and is better than using msconfig as long as you go through the settings and change everything to the highest settings.) Then do the same with Adaware 2008 (sounds stupid to use 2 things for spyware, but one catches what the other one does not.). I have links on my website (tandnfamilyelectronics-online.com). These links go directly to the download so you will not get the run around. You would do good to try a program called Window Washer (http://www.download.com/Free-Internet-Window-Washer/3000-2144_4-10436825.html?cdlPid=10731707). This is a great program that completely cleans anything in your computer that you do not need. It will not clean out anything that you have to have. I have used this for years to clean out my customers computers and have cleaned as much as 3 gigs of trash out. If you contact me I will give you some tools that I have for free that will do a great job on your computer. I have them ready to download and I will give you the link. (dean@tandnfamilyelectronics-online.com)

Send me the complete specs of your system and I can help you more. I hope that this helps you. There is no reason the really buy a program for spyware when there are free things to use that work great. Free AVG is a great Antivirus and yes it is also free. It will check your e-mail coming and going. It will also let your friends now that the E-mail does not have a virus. It also has a spyware program that is free. This day and time with all of the spyware out on the net you can never have too many programs for spyware. I would not run all of them at the same time though. Make sure that you do not use your computer during any scan. Defrag is also something to do after you do everything else. Some people will tell you that should not reload your computer. If nothing seems to work then sometimes that is the only good way to get it repaired right. Most of the programs that come pre-installed on a store bought computer is useless and most are even trail software that causes problems when they expire. Let me know if this helps at all. Please rate this as a Fixya if it helps.
