Try to use other anti-virus programs, there maybe viruses that your previous cleaner can't detect. If that wont solve your problem it is best to reformat your pc then install a new operating system, just be sure to backup your data first.

Keyboard jumps up to line just typed


Sounds like you have a sticky up arrow key,or you have a virus on your comp.Try booting in safemode by turning on your computer and tapping the F8 key while booting,then choose safemode.Once you are in Windows,open the program you are using and try your text document again.If it works correctly,you may have a virus.While you are in Safemode,run your virus scanner,then reboot your computer to see if the problem is solved.If it does not fix it,try running System Restore back to before the problem started.Good luck :)

Error loading c:/windows/system32/nvcpl.dll


If you're getting this whenever you boot up to windows, just disable it from your startup.

Go to start > Run

Type msconfig.

Go to startup tab.

Disable everything (except for your antivirus, wireless, or any other application that you recognize and need in startup. Anything else in there that you don't recognize, you can just disable).

Click on apply, OK.

Reboot your pc.


If you get a window when you reboot, just tick on do not show this message again.

Basically, my webcam is not working. I recently bought a Microsoft Lifecam VX-7000, and for the first week or so it worked perfectly. However, starting yesterday, it changed. I would plug in my webcam and...


Hello :

Before i start to give a solution i would like to tell you that rebooting system after any new installing or uninstalling of any software is very important .
For your Webcam , i recommend you to uninstall it's software completely and reboot your system . After that install it again and reboot your system again .
You have to do that while the Cam is connected to your computer .
After that , you need to set that software correctly before you start to run the Cam again . !
If that didn't help , then i recommend you to restore your system to the a previous point [time] when the cam was working perfectly .
If that didn't help also , then i advice you to get it back to the place where you bought it from . But don't forget to take the guarantee and the bill with you .

I hope that can help you .

rate if that was useful please !

Computer has viruses which might be why it has a the blue screen


Try entering safe mode and doing the virus scan:
  • Switch on your PC
  • Before the Windows Logo screen appears press F8 to get the startup options menu
  • Chose Safe Mode
  • Once your computer boots, run AVG and let it remove all the viruses. Reboot and it should go into Windows as normal.You might have to rerun the scan a few times to get rid of everything but it should do the job.

My computer is rebooting over an over ....dont have time to do anything....now i open my computer on safe ....mode what should i do??? i have window xp


If your computer fully loads Windows, than starts a restard process you are looking at having an annoying virus. Since there are several different viruses that can cause this problem, if this is the reason for the restarting, you would be best off loading Windows in safe mode (using the F8 key before Windows starts to load will give you a menu with options like SAFE MODE) and than trying to scan it for viruses.

If your computer doesn't actually load Windows, but restarts after the Windows loading screen, you could have a corrupt driver causing Windows to restart. If your computer were slow, you would see the error message, faster computers go through the error screen too fast. The best way to determine this would be to start in SAFE MODE and see if the same problem exists.

Let me know what happens after you start in SAFE MODE. 6 Pts Rate Answer

Shutting down then starting back up whenever


Ya. If it keeps re-booting then it may be a virus (my things virus)
If not, go to system properties and start up and recovery settings. remove reboot on error settings (in XP) It doesnt fix the root cause but may stop your frustration

My computer went back to older clock date as 1610


try starting your computer in safe mode and see if you can do anything productive there, like scanning for viruses or spyware. also check if you can do the following:
CTRL+ALT+DEL (open task manager)
goto Start>Run>Regedit (open registry editor)
goto Start>Control Panel>Display>Properties (change display settings)
right click on clock at tray and change the current time to correct settings

if you cannot do any of these activities, then your computer may probably been compromised by a virus or malware.
