Assuming you don't have any data on the hard drive that isn't backed up, use the Product restore CD/DVD that came with the laptop to re-install Vista completely from scratch. THIS WILL WIPE ALL EXISTING DATA FROM THE HARD DRIVE. Then go online ONLY to download any and all Microsoft patches. Then make sure you have good anti-virus software installed and up to date (run the update repeatedly until it says there are no more updates). Then AND ONLY THEN you can safely go online to do other stuff. Install iTunes after taking a System Restore checkpoint (look in the Vista help in the start menu for this). If, after installing iTunes, you get the same problems, use System Restore to revert to the state before installing iTunes. Don't try & uninstall it - it doesn't always work properly. Then use a different media player (e.g. WinAMP) - iTunes and Vista often don't play nicely with each other.

Missing tool bar when I uploaded to Explorer 7. I cant click on tools to get it back because I dont have a tool bar to acces


Try to uninstall IE7. Once it's removed, restart your computer then it will revert back to the older version IE6. After that you can opt to install IE7 again or much better a newer version like 8 or 9.

To uninstall IE7, kindly follow these steps:
  1. Close all programs.
  2. Click Start and then click Control Panel.
  3. Click Uninstall a Program under the Programs category
  4. In the Tasks pane, click View installed updates.
  5. In the list of installed updates, double-click Windows Internet Explorer 7. In the Uninstall an update dialog box, click Yes.

    Note If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type the password, or click Continue.
  6. Follow the instructions to uninstall Internet Explorer 7.
  7. When the uninstall program is finished, restart your computer.
  8. After you restart your computer, open Internet Explorer. Click Help>About Internet Explorer and check if it's on version 6. If it is then proceed with upgrading to a higher version again.


    Hope this helps.

How to re-login in internet explorer


Your question is not so clear...
If you have problem with restarting Internet Explorer, you can use utility from:
http://www.nirsoft.net
explorestart.exe cam restart Internet Explorer, and can restart desktop (explorer is hart of windows) without restarting of windows.
All programs has button for closing (red cross), and you can always start on e icon.
I suggest to use Mozilla Firefox browser. You can install DownloadHelper for YouTube video downloading and so on. It is more safe option.

There is problem with your Windows explorer. I strongly recommend that you upgrade your
Internet Explorer on your computer by downloading and installing Internet Explorer 8. Make sure you select the right country where you live in and the right OS (Windows like XP or Vista etc).

WEB PAGES AND DOWNLOADS ARE VERY SLOW.


Use Mozilla firefox browser whihc is beleive to be faster than Internet explorer.

You can tweak the Mozilla by following my link below

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3572414-firefox_speed_tweaks

Here is the download link
http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/firefox.html

But if you still want to use Internet explorer than tweak the Internet explorer using my earlier link, below is the link

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3591130-how_to_speed_up_http_requests_on_interne

Always use Download Manager to download anything from net except from sites like rapidshare,megaupload etc.They don't support Download Manager as they are file hosting server. 

I recommend you use "Orbit Download Manager" as it is completely free and it support video download from sites like youtube.com etc

Here is the download link from whwre you can downalod Orbit Downloader

http://download.cnet.com/Orbit-Downloader/3000-2071_4-10600926.html


That's it.

Make Sure your system is free from virus, trojans or spyware or adware, they slow down the system as well as consumed Internet bandwidth too.Scan your PC with a Good Antivirus but I recommend you to use any Internet security suite.
