    Usually to be able to download and install programs, or anything else for that matter, you must be an administrator on the computer.

    Make sure you have full admin rights on the computer and write back, and if you are using Vista or XP as an operating system.

I cant download anything from web like media player and youtube is not working some times


Starting from your device, to the net, different things can go wrong.
Too many processes running on your device, can block smooth running of streams. A not optimal wireless connection can do the same. Connection can be corrupted, by other users (devices) on the same router of other wireless routers close to you.
But even with a good connection to the net, it could be your provider is throttling the bandwidth, as soon as you start streaming video content.
So lots of things to check to find what is wrong.
Fixing something is only possible when you know the exact cause of the problem.

Windows security center doesn't start


My suggestion is to use Malwarebytes; a far better security program that updates daily when you computer is active. The good thing about MALWAREBYTES is it can check Incoming and Outgoing intrusion. You can pay for the program or Use it FREE non-commercial use. Http://:Malwarebytes.com

My computer won't let me download anything


Most computer users can readily download files from the
Internet with no issue.


Yet, you may experience an error that will not allow you to
download anything from the Internet. Generally, you can readily resolve this
issue with some simple troubleshooting.

Check your antivirus settings.

More often than not, you simply have too strict of security
settings that prevent you from downloading files.

Otherwise, you can try a few other simple fixes to get your
computer to download files.


If you cannot resolve the issue by troubleshooting, you may
have a serious error that demands the assistance of a computer specialist.



Turn down your security settings.


Go to your browser\'s security settings.

You can change all settings to default or even low settings.



You may even see an option there for enabling downloading.

For example, Internet Explorer has a check box for
"enable file download."


Try to see if these looser security settings will allow you
to download files.



Get a new Web browser.


You may have installed your browser improperly.

You can reinstall your Web browser.


Alternatively, install a new Web browser and see if you can
download files using it.

Sometimes, this will remedy the problem.


Internet Explorer, Firefix, Safari, Chrome and other free
web browsers work well.



Update your computer.


Sometimes, a computer update can remedy your downloading
problem.

If you use Microsoft Windows, install the latest service
pack.


Reboot your computer after the installation to see if you
can now download files.

If you still cannot download anything, you need to see a
computer specialist.

Virus If Explorer Won\'t
Download Anything






The Internet is laced with malicious software just waiting
to take a crack at your personal information.

While rare, certain bits of malware have been known to
hijack a user\'s browser to prevent the download of repair or removal tools.

When this occurs, destroying the infection can be more
frustrating than usual, but is certainly not impossible.

Restart your computer.

You can do this by clicking the "Start" menu,
select "Shut Down" and click "Restart."




Press the "F8" button repeatedly as your computer reboots to activate
the Windows Advanced Options menu.









Select "Safe Mode with Networking."





Press "Enter" to load Windows.

Safe Mode is designed to allow you to troubleshoot issues
with your Windows operating system by limiting the types of processes that can
run -- this should block the virus or trojan from controlling your browser.



Remove the Virus




Download the Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool
(MSRT).


MSRT is a free tool developed by Microsoft to assist you in
removing harmful files from your computer.







Open MSRT by double-clicking the icon on your desktop.


Click "Next" to progress to the "Scan
Type" pane.







Choose "Full Scan."


While this scan may take longer, it will ensure that every
corner of your computer is checked for malicious software.







Remove any harmful files that MSRT discovers by allowing the
software to delete them or by manually destroying the files and folders.







Empty your Recycle Bin and restart your computer to boot
Windows in standard mode.


Your browser will now function correctly.

How to reformat or reboot my comp witout any cds


You can't reformat without CD's

The most common cause for a slow PC is either a virus or malware.

Your problem is that you say you cannot download anything so you would be unable to run an online scan to check your system.

If you have access to another PC you could download F-Secure rescue disc and burn to CD then set your PC to boot from CD and run a scan before your system boots.

Details here.

Virus


Personal Security is very wisely denominated rogue antispyware. Most users figure out what sort of software they have and ask how to remove Personal Antivirus
To remove Personal Security spyware you must block Personal Security sites, stop and delete processes, unregister DLL files, search and delete all other Personal Security files and registry utility. Other software removal method is to remove Personal Security by using "Add or Remove Programs" service. However there may be hidden Personal Security files, running processes and registries in your computer, so Personal Security may recreate all other files after reboot.

Can't download/can't access Windows Admin capabilities


THE PROBLEM IS THAT YOUR COMPUTER AND ALL THE WISDOM MICROSOFT SECURITY OPTION MAKE IT IMPOSSIBLE TO ACCESS THAT PART OF WINDOWS.

DO YOU KNOW HOW TO MAKE CHANGES TO YOUR SERVICE FOLDER.

THE OTHERS ARE IN THE CONTROL PANEL, NEED TO CHECK OUT THE NETWORKING AND SHARING FOLDER, NEED TO GO INTO SECURITY AND DISABLE EVERYTHING UNTIL YOU FIX WHATEVERY YOU NEED TO FIX.

THAN YOU NEEED TO GO INTO WINDOWS DEFENDER AND WINDOWS FIREWALL AND DISABLE ALL THEM FILES.

BUT BEFROE YOU DO ANYTHING BACK UP ALL SETTINGS AND FILES, TAKE NOTES ON EVERY THING YOU DO SO YOU DONT FORGET TO TURN SOMETHING BACK ON.

MOST OF THE THING TO NEED FIXING IS IN THE REGEDIT FOLDER

GO INTO CONTROL PANEL AND LOOK UNDER THE FOLDER CALLED DEFAULT PROGRAM AND JUST LOOK TRHEW THE SELECTIONS YOU MAY NOT HAVE TO DO ALL THAT WORK FOR NOTHING.
