How do I Install updates for Microsoft Essentials if the Essentials Programm this refuse?

Normally Microsoft Essentials automatically updates itself along with other automatic updates to other parts of your Operating System (in your case, Windows Vista). But it sounds like there is something wrong here with your automatic settings. At the end of this advice, there will be a link to follow to give you the exact directions to follow to hopefully fix your problem. Once you get to the page this link will send you to, click on the link (in blue letters) that say "How to perform a clean boot." You will now see a circle with a dash in it and "How to perform a clean boot" inside a blue border. A bit further down you will see "Windows 7 and Windows Vista" in blue letters. Follow those directions and it should fix your problem. (Where it states that you might need "administrators rights," don't worry. Unless your computer was set-up with a specific administrator, YOU already have those rights.
Remember, follow the directions including following the links further down the same page. They are: "What is next when I have a clean boot environment" and "How to reset the computer to start normally after clean boot troubleshooting."
Another piece of advice - Print out ALL 3 sets of instructions before starting this procedure.

Hp freezes after it sits for long time

which operating system ?

Normally your computer will turn on a screen saver or enter sleep mode after a certain period of idle time, to protect your monitor from suffering a "burn in" of an image that appears on the screen for extended periods of time. This also helps to save electricity during periods of inactivity. Vista owners report via Internet tech help forums a seemingly rampant "bug" that causes the machine to freeze after being left idle for long periods. No single factor seems to cause this, and instead requires troubleshooting and trial and error to find a fix that works.

Screen Saver Failure
When your computer freezes after a long idle period, it could be due to a malfunctioning screen saver. Turn your screen saver off, by clicking "Start" and then "Control Panel." Under "Appearance and Personalization," click "Personalization" and select "Screen Saver." Select "None" under the screensaver drop-down list and hit OK. Pay attention next time your computer goes idle for reappearance of the problem. b> Power Saving Options b> Windows Vista provides users a way to select how their computers behave after sitting idle for a certain amount of time. In many cases, the hard drive and monitor are instructed to enter sleep mode or even shut down after they've been idle for a specified time frame. To check or alter your settings, click the "Start" button and then "Control Panel." Under the System and Maintenance icon, click "Power Options." Under this tab you can change the amount of time before your system goes to sleep, and the actions it takes after reaching the idle time. Malware b> When mysterious things begin happening to your computer for no apparent reason, there's a good chance a malware program is behind it. Malware are nasty, hidden programs that download themselves onto your computer to cause havoc and even steal your personal information. These invaders monopolize your CPU, clog your RAM, and generally make using your computer unpleasantly slow and frustrating. Their presence can affect everything from program operation to operating system functionality. Always update and run malware protection software regularly to keep these pests out of your computer. b> Update Windows and BIOS b> Your computer's operating system and BIOS files are responsible for proper operation and functionality. Over time, these files can become outdated, requiring patches, fixes and other updates to correct compatibility and security problems in your computer. Microsoft provides regular updates for its Vista operating system to correct reported problems. The BIOS in your computer is programmed into the motherboard, so the board's manufacturer may have an update available for your version. In many cases, the brand that sells the computer may offer a link to the BIOS update, so check with Microsoft for any updates available. b> Too Many Processes b> Your computer will register as "idle" if you haven't used it, even if you have programs open on the screen. After a certain amount of time, the system will send the data you were working on to the RAM as the system settles into sleep mode. When trying to wake the system after this idle period, it may have a hard time resuming the programs that are open, causing a freeze. Close down any program you are not actively working in to save the CPU from unnecessary work, and lessen the load placed on the RAM when it's left idle. right mouse click in the bottom toolbar select task manager applications if you see something running that should not be running select end now you might even uninstall that specific program if its no longer needed also in the processes tab see whats ticking over in the background might be a virus or malware. Download and install at least one of these all free depending on your operating system avg free 2013 microsoft security essentials your operating system must be registered Win7/Vista/XP 64 bit anti malware free edition Win XP/2003/Vista/Windows7 malware protection windows xp microsoft security essentials windows 7 microsoft security essentials Hope this helps.

Upgraded Z558 to Vista, playback and tv appears to be sluggish to the point video is off from audio

Make sure you update the video driver to a Vista driver if you have move from XP to VISTA
If not loaded, vista will load it's own default generic driver and you will notice a bite in performance.

Windows Advanced Option Menu will load. Choose Safe mode. Open control panel, open add/remove programs. At the top of the window & slightly to the right of the Add or Remove Programs windows is a box next to Show Updates. Left click in the box. Scroll down & find .Net framwork 2.2 & uninstall it. Close all opened windows & restart the PC.
Continue to update you're windows.

Please let me know if this has helped.
Good Luck!
