Every PC is different, in that we all have different software loaded. But try this. Go to run, type msconfig hit ENTER. Go to startup. uncheck everything except the following. Soundman, all RUNDLL32.EXE commands, dumprep, and your antivirus program.
everything else can be unchecked. This does not delete the programs, it just keeps the boot components from loading on startup.
On reboot, you will get a window that tells you you are doing something (I forget) Just check the box at the bottom that says do not show this again and exit. otherwise this will hound you everytime you boot.

The windows components are the only ones you need, these are the ones you need for the computer to boot properly. You can remove unnecesary start up items by typing msconfig on run, then click on start up tab, uncheck those unnecesary programs and reboot the computer.

I use my pc every day however it is very slow to start as it has to download the updates from microsoft auto updates,how can turn off these auto updates?


It is likely not the updates that are slowing down your computer, but rather an accumulation of programs and other information over time.

The best way to speed up your computer is to uninstall programs that you do not use anymore, and to use a program such as Ccleaner from http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner to remove unnecessary files and to clean the registry of your computer.

The updates are very important to maintain the security and stability of your computer. Disabling them will compromise the safety and reliability of your computer in the future.

Breville you brew auto start not working


There is an error in the manual. Following the directions will, as you discovered, start brewing immediately.

To complete the auto-start programming, in step 8 of "Programming Auto-Start" you should NOT "press the PROGRAM button."

Instead, as soon as you have set the desired minute of the Start Time (step 7 in the manual), press the START / CANCEL button.


The LCD screen will then dim and display 'PROGRAM ON' to indicate that the Auto-Start feature has been successfully turned on.

Hope this helps.

- Owen.

Recently purchashed the Acer Aspire 5734Z and after installing the antivirus that came with the extra warranty I wasn't able to get into other programs (or it took about 10 min to do so, then it locked...


I offer to start with the obvious, have you tried starting the computer in "SAFE MODE" and tried un-installing then?
Sometimes running the install program (if you have it) offers options like re-install, modify, or remove.
You should mention which AV program you are talking about, and which version (Pro, Home, other).
If it's running slow, try turning off or reducing anti-virus program options, like scan priority, auto-scan, auto-update, web-page status checking.

Please guide the steps to install the norton antivirus 360 latest version one user


The easiest way, open your CD drive and with that open shut down your computer. Insert the Disk in the drive and close it then restart the computer. The installation program should start auto automatically as windows starts. The reason I said to shut down then reboot with the disk in the drive is to allow the program to scan your system before windows starts to speed up the install process. If you insert the Disk and close the drive while the computer is on it will auto start and scan the system anyway but it takes longer. Make sure you stop and uninstall any other anti virus programs or Anti Adware programs, such as Spy Bot, you may have running, the Adware programs only need to be closed.

My Kodak Picture CD will not auto load


If your computer is operating with WINDOWS 95, WINDOWS 98, or WINDOWS NT 4.0 Systems, this CD contains software that automatically launches when you insert the CD. Getting Started:
Insert your Picture CD disc and wait for the software to load (it could take as long as 5 minutes, depending on your machine configuration, CD drive speed, and the number of images on the Picture CD).
Note: This loading process installs some Picture CD program files onto your hard drive. The KODAK Picture CD installer walks you through the steps. The final step may be to restart your computer. If so, be sure to restart to complete the installation.
After your computer has rebooted:
  1. Eject the Picture CD and re-insert it into the CD drive.
    The program should launch automatically.
  2. Click the magazine cover to turn to the Contents Page.
  3. Follow the links to read and do more with your digital photos.
If nothing happens after waiting for the Auto Play, you may need to manually start the Auto Play program. (Auto Play is a program that starts up the CD installation process the first time you use the CD.)
To manually start Auto Play:
  1. Right-click the My Computer icon.
  2. Select Properties from the pop-up menu.
  3. Click the Device Manager tab.
  4. Click the CD-ROM drive icon; click the "+" to view the CD-ROM drive information.
  5. Double-click the CD-ROM driver icon.
  6. Select Properties from the pop-up menu.
  7. Click Settings.
  8. Check Auto insert notification and click OK.
Note: This enables all CDs to automatically run any Auto Play software.
