Question about Dell Dimension 4600 PC Desktop
Ive gone to remove programmes and removed a virus software set up programme that installed itself...i uninstalled it but it still in the tray and keeps poping up--can you help?
Find the program in your disk drive or in c drive in my computer. Open your disk and find programs then find this program that keeps installing itself and delete it. If it doesn't want to delete all at once start deleting it one icon at a time once you open this program. Thentry to delete the whole program. Sometimes these programs give up as you delete more and more of these icons . Be sure and don't delete anything but this one program. This is the folder all of your programs are installed in on your computer. Just delete the program you do not want. Then you should get rid of your problem.

Hello manx, Fortunately for you, your Dimension 4600 has windows xp on it, which has a feature to put you back in time, before the virus. Go to start, programs, accessories, system tools, system restore. Click - restore my computer to an earlier time. Click next, and then choose a date from the calendar, usually a few days before the virus appeared, and follow the prompts through, including restarting your computer to complete the restoration. Please let us know how it works for you, and if you need any additional assistance. Best regards, nightdiver

It may have put something into the registry so that it will always download and run on start up. You can try the following to get rid of it. 1) Open the registry editor. (To do this, go to Start -> Run and type: regedit ) 2) Browse to the following location HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run 3) Look at all the keys (items) in this folder. The program you are looking for may be listed here. If you find it, make note of where the file is located and delete the file that is mentioned in the key. Then delete the key. This will keep it form restarting after reboot.

See if you can get to safe mode. Write back to see if you can, and we will give you instructions on how to proceed from there.
Otherwise you will need a restore or winxp OS installation disk.

My first thought is to check if the card has become lose from the slot. To check that you will need to open the case safely (make sure to wear an anti-static wrist strap or ground yourself any time you move). Unplug your computer from all of the external devices and power as well.
These directions assume your card is not screwed into the back of the case (in which case either the slot is not getting enough power or the card is bad).
Pull the sound card out and place it in the slot (or, preferably, another open slot of the same type). Push down evenly on the entire card (sometimes you'll need to press on the front and then the back of the card until it is fully seated).
Close the case and plug in your external devices (at least power, mouse, keyboard and speakers) and test if the device is found.
I'm also assuming you have a sound card and not on-board audio. If at some time a sound card was added and the on-board audio was disabled, you may be able to re-enable the on-board audio after removing the sound card drivers. If the reseating of the card doesn't work, I'd try a new sound card.
I hope this helps.
