How To Remove The Video Card Driver


It's much simpler to remove the video card driver under Windows XP than under Windows 98. Click on Start, then click on Control Panel. Double-click on the Add/Remove Programs icon. Scroll through the list of programs installed on the computer and click on the current video card drivers. Highlighting an entry on this window brings up a Change/Remove button for the entry like the example shown below. If an NVIDIA video card is being removed then the entry would be named something like "NVIDIA Display Driver".

Remove the video card driver and restart the computer.When the computer boots back to the desktop, the colors and the display probably look very different than they did before. That's because the computer is now using the standard VGA adapter, which is very basic. Let GoBack settle down.

For replacing an NVIDIA based video card like I did, read the Driver Cleaner ReadMe file and follow the steps. There are not many steps and the step are not difficult, but there's no point in repeating them here. On the other hand, I found the text shown below from the Driver Cleaner help file quite helpful, so I've mentioned it here to make sure you see it. Execute Driver Cleaner to remove any remaining remnants of the NVIDIA video card drivers. The steps for Driver Cleaner require that the computer be restarted in "Safe Mode". See my How to Start a Windows XP-Based Computer in Safe Mode page if you're not sure how to do that.

For replacing an ATI based video card, execute CATALYST Uninstaller (cat-uninstaller.exe). Follow the prompts and restart the computer when prompted.

With the appropriate driver cleaner utitlity complete, now is a fine to use the System Configuration Utility (msconfig) to change startup such that the computer no longer restarts in Safe Mode.

If you're upgrading from an integrated graphics chipset, meaning a chipset built-into the motherboard, so that there is currently no video card in your computer then it's worth noting that some motherboards require a simple BIOS change in order for the installed video card to be recognized. Consult the documentation that came with your motherboard or computer for more information.

I want to remove freeze.com screensavers from my system. How can I do this?


Go to control panel, add/remove programs & remove it. You can also try simply going under the start menu & unsing the "remove" feature built in to the program. If none of that works, download malwarebytes & run that. ( google it) Let me know.

I will assume your saying it wont recognise the HDD not the CD drive? If so the cleanup has removed the drive info from it. Whet i would is take that HDD out and plug into another PC as a secondary HDD and it should auto repair it. Ive done this dozens of times with loads of luck. But nothings guaranteed with computers.

It takes my PC a very long time to boot up, what can i do?



If you have installed any softwares recently it might slow down the pc as many softwares will install a startup file in order to start faster. You can shut these programs from starting up when the pc starts.
I put 2 steps to resolve this in order of simplicity.

Remove icons from the Startup folder
Some programs open with a shortcut icon in the startup folder (Startup icons). Use the following steps to show any startup icons that might be hidden and remove startup icons from the startup folder:
NOTE: Removing items from the Startup folder does not uninstall the software program.
1. Right-click the Start button, and click Explore . The Windows Explorer window displays with Start Menu already selected.
2. Click the plus sign ( + ) next to Programs .
3. Click Startup . The shortcut icons are listed in the right pane of the window.
4. To show any hidden icons, click Tools , click Folder Options , and click the View tab.
5. Click Show hidden files and folders (Windows XP/ME) or Show all files (Windows 98), and click OK .
6. Click an unwanted startup item in the right pane of the window and drag it to a blank area on the Windows desktop. Release the mouse button to drop the icon onto the desktop.
7. Continue dragging unwanted icons until all unwanted startup icons are on the desktop. Click Yes to any window that display asking to confirm the removal of a read-only file.
8. Close Windows Explorer and restart the computer for the changes to take effect. Delete the startup icons that were moved to the desktop after you are satisfied with the way the software programs are working.
If you find that a particular software program should not have been removed from the Startup folder, double-click the startup menu item to open the Startup window. Then drag the icon from the desktop back into the Startup window.

Lexmark isn't supporting windows 98 anymore. You may be having difficulties with the licensing completion because its looking for Win 98 files on the internet and they have probably been pulled from the server.

You might have better luck if you track down a Windows 2000 operating system.

Cannot get rid of an unwanted program .


here's manual antivirus xp 2008 removal
http://www.2-spyware.com/remove-antivirus-xp.html

If you are having problems with your desktop or getting the nasty message when you boot up follow the instructions below, but use the above link to remove the virus. YES THIS IS A VIRUS AND NOT A VIRUS REMOVAL TOOL!

First you need to stop the program from loading on startup. This is what you do to stop it:

Start, run

Type msconfig

Go to Startup tab
(if you've totally removed the antivirus program, you will not find these files and you can skip to the gpedit.msc step)

Uncheck lphc35dj0e1an
Uncheck rhc75dj0e1an

Click apply, then ok
Restart computer


Then you need to delete the main files this program uses. Delete the following file:

C:\windows\system32\lphc35dj0e1an.exe

Delete the following folder and all contents:

C:\program files\rhc75dj0e1an

This should remove the program from your system but you probably still have a warning message displayed as your wallpaper in Windows and the virus removed the ability to change the wallpaper or your desktop settings.

To restore ability to change your desktop settings and select a different wallpaper and screen saver do the following:

Start, run

type Gpedit.msc

Navigate to User configuration, Administrative Templates, Control Panel, Display

Right click on Remove Display in Control Panel
Click on Properties and select Disabled

Do the same steps to change the following attributes to disabled:

Hide Desktop Tab
Prevent changing wallpaper
Hide Apperance and Themes tab
Hide Settings tab
Hide Screen Saver tab

You should now be able to use your computer normally and change the wallpaper/screensaver to something other than the warning message Antivirus XP 2008 set it to.
