I am going to assume your computer was faster than this to start with. You either have an incredibly poor internet connection over a phone line or more likely you haven't been real careful when you have downloaded stuff and you have so much BS running on your computer that there is no memory left over for normal computer usage. Example: Do you have more than 4 or 5 icons in your system tray? When you type msconfig.exe in your run box, and go to the startup tab, exactly how many items are running?

Please post your system specifications (especially memory), your OS, and what kind of internet you use.

Cannot get my messages from gmail on both my phone and computer ...messages only go to my phone ...need to have them go to both !!...What to do???


Go to Gmail on the computer, click the Settings icon on the upper right that looks like a gear, click Settings, click "Forwarding and POP/IMAP", click "Add a forwarding address" and enter an email address already on the computer. If there isn't one, the same area of the Settings menu will let you save emails to the Gmail Inbox, if you're using POP email. That way you can open Gmail rather than an email client and the previously read emails will still be available.

Tips to Find Unauthorized Activity on Your Email Account


Do you suspect that your email account is under attack? Do you want to maintain total security of your email account and make it 100% hack proof? Well, Some times our email account might have got hacked and we may not be aware of that. We may believe that our email account is safe, but in reality our private and confidential information may be falling into the hands of a third person.
Here are some signs of unauthorized activity on an email account.
1. Your new emails are marked as Read even if you’ve not read them.
2. Your emails are moved to Trash or even permanently deleted without your notice.
3. Your emails are being forwarded to a third party email address (check your settings->forwarding).
4. Your secondary email address is changed.
If you come across any of the above activities on your email account, then it is a clear indication that your email account is hacked.
Additional Security Features in Gmailto ensure the Safety of your Account
Gmail provides an additional security feature to protect your email account through the means of IP address logging. That is, Gmail records your IP addressevery time you login to your Gmail account. So, if a third party getsaccess to your account then even his/her IP is also recorded. To see alist of recordedIP address, scroll down to the bottom of your Gmail account and you’ll see something like this.

You can see from the above figure that Gmail shows the IP address of last login (last account activity). You can click on Details to see the IP address of your last 5 activities. If you find that the IP listed in the logs doesn’t belong to you, then you can suspect unauthorized activity.
Steps to be carried out to stop unauthorized activity on your email account
If you feel/suspect that your account is hacked then you must immediately take the actions mentioned below
1. Change your Password
2. Change your security question.
2. Remove any third party email address (if any) to which your account is set to forward emails.
3. Make sure that you can access the email account of your secondary email address.
4. Also change you secondary email password and security question.
This ensures that your account is safe from future attacks.

Chkdsk runs for 24 hours and never finishes. How can I fix my hard drive? My computer is running very slow. I use System Mechanic Professional to check my computer and it wants to perform a chkdsk the next...


The time that the 4th level takes is completely dependent upon the SIZE of the disk. That level is a datacheck. Each block of the drive is checked. If you have a 300GB drive, that will take some time as each block is read/written/read a number of times.

Is there a specific issue you are trying to address or is this a preventitive measure?

Automatic address, compose, forward, does not work.


Completing addresses when addressing an email works a bit different as Outlook doesn’t have an AutoComplete feature but has an AutoSuggest feature a Check Names feature instead.

The subtle difference between the two is that the AutoSuggest feature doesn’t have a direct relation to your Contacts folder or other address lists configured in your Address Book. Instead, AutoSuggest uses a cache which contains a list of addresses that you’ve previously used.

Outlook also has another feature which is similar to AutoComplete; Check Names.

Check Names can work interactively and by default also works as a background process.

Check Names – Interactive
To use Check Names interactively, you type part of the name or address and then press the Check Names button on the Toolbar or Ribbon or press its keyboard shortcut (for most localized versions this is CTRL+K). This will search in your Address Book for that part of the name. If only a single address is resolved, it will directly show this in the To-field (or CC or BCC field). If multiple addresses are found, then it will prompt you with a dialog to select the correct address from.

Check Names – Background
When you only type part of a name or address and then switch to the message body, Check Names will perform a background search in your Address Book. If only a single address is resolved, it will autocomplete the address for you. If multiple addresses are found, it will underline the address with a red scribble line.

When you press the Send button while an address is not fully resolved, you’ll get prompted to select the correct address.

To turn of this background feature of Check Names go to;
Tools-> Options…-> E-mail Options…-> Advanced E-mail Options-> disable option: Automatic name checking

Why can't I receive certains email to my hotmail address. I can not get email from 3 different people. Please help....Can you call me at 305-935-4941


They may be set up to junk/spam. Add their address to your address book and send them a message for them to "reply" to. Check the folders if they've been sent to spam or junk.

A new hp pavillion a6600f, I cannot set-uo email to send or receive? 2/ Had Teck service two days ago, we tried for seems like 2 hours, I could not understand his broken language, plus my weakness of poor...


Okay, you have to have the server information in order to set up your e-mail in Outlook Express (i.e. POP and SMTP server names like mail.optonline.net and so forth.) Just navigate over to the support page for your internet service or e-mail provider, and they should have the step-by-step instructions for you for Outlook Express including settings.

After you enter the information from the support page, the Outlook Express account wizard will give you the opportunity to send a test message. Send one, and it should work if you entered the settings properly.

Now, regarding address books, when you use Outlook Express, when you set up an e-mail account, it sets you up with a blank address book. You can then fill up contacts in it as you go along, just like a paper one. But, you don't even need to have a single address in that address book as long as you know the e-mail addresses you are sending to and can type them in properly (like fixya@fixya.com for example) in the "To:" field. So, don't sweat that too much. It's really just for convenience.

I hope this helps.

My e-mail coming to me is going to another address sometimes


changing email address will loose only the profile that you created from old email. If your talking about the address book and personal files ( like old emails ). All you have to do is Archive it and open it from the email client (Outlook, Outlook express, Thunderbird, etc.) that you're using from new email address.

Please tell us the email client that you are currently using so that I can tell you where to grab the address book and Personal files from default folder.
