Try ctrl+alt+del look under the applications tab and see if it is running. If so end task. Try to uninstall pgm and reinstall.
You could also try a registry cleaner to fix your problems. There is a goo free one called Ccleaner. Use cautiously, you can really mess up the computer registry and cause the computer to crash!!
You may also have a virus.. Run virus and spyware scan..
Make sure you uninstall programs, dont just delete them.

My system was so slow.I did all the clean ups bought good registry cleaner still slow. So I tried deleting programs then I followed instructions from pc mag and obviously deleted too much. Lost internet,...


Did you try defragmentation? If no then do it. You need to defrag your system every 1month atleast and before deleting all your programs did you check your task manager which processes are eating your Ram and making it slow? Check and end those process, Start up programs also slow down your system. Disable some of the start up programs which are not needed while starting up your system. For this open ccleaner and in tools open start up and disable some programs. Advanced SystemCare software and ccleaner are much more enough to take the clutter and tune your system. Hope these tips help you.

How to download torrents or files SAFLEY


Many torrents or files downloaded from Lime wire, Bit torrent, and other torrent programs have viruses on them. There is a way to combat this so that these viruses cannot harm your computer. All you need is a flash drive or external hard drive. When you decide to download a file or torrent download on to the drive rather than your pc. Once it has been downloaded use a anti-virus program to scan the file. If the file is corrupt with a virus you can safely delete it. Should you open the file without scanning it and it does contain a virus don't worry there is still hope. Since the file is saved on a external drive or flash drive just reformat the drive and your computer will still be safe.

You shouldn't have lost anything unless you deleted it. Just by moving the computer will not lose any programs.

Lime wire start error messages keep on coming back on my screen how to stop


Uninstall limeware from 'add/remove programs' in control panel (eventually reinstall it back later). Also check if there is limeware on start menu button / all program / startup. If there is click right mouse button and delete from startup folder.

Is it possible to delete a file from "my document" without deleting it from the the Seagate FreeAgent Go 120GB? How?


Hello dwanger754,

Generally, when a file is deleted, only the visible reference to it is deleted. The file still exists on the HDD although you dont see it. If you want to recover this file, there are a lot of "Undelete" or recovery software that can accomplish this. However the most important step with any file recovery technique is to avoid using the drive that holds the deleted files. There is a good chance the file is still present but if you use the computer, the possibility of file recovery decreases.


File Recovery 4 is a free program to recover lost files. All you do is download and Install the program on the computer – try to avoid the same drive as the deleted files. Follow the simple steps and fingers-crossed the file can be recovered. It can undelete a lost file from FAT, FAT!6, FAT32 and NTFS file system format. Plus it can finds partitions automatically, even if the boot sector or FAT has been erased or damaged.

File Recovery 4 can also recover most common files types. Even if part of the file is damaged and beyond recovery, you may be able to get back some useful fragments - recovering half of a lost 10,000 word assignment is better than having nothing at all :)
