Don't forget to remove all the old programs using the removal of the machine tools and/or their extraordinary

List of tools to clean/uninstall anti-malware programs


Here's what I use and recommend: (these are all free and very effective versions.)

Avast and Prevx proved extremely reliable and compatible with all I have
launched on them. Microsoft Security Essentials and Prevx have also proven to be very
reliable and compatible. Use MSE or Avast and Prevx, Prevx 3 but not all.

Avast Home free - stop any shields is not necessary except leaving Standard, Web, and
Operation of the network.

Prevx - Home - free

Windows Firewall

Windows Defender (is not necessary if you use MSE)

Protected IE - mode

IE 8 - SmartScreen filter WE (IE 7 phishing filter)

I also IE always start with asset if filter InPrivate IE 8.
(It may temporarily turn off with the little icon to the left of the + bottom
right of IE)

Two versions of Avast are available 5.x and 4.8 x

Avast - home - free - 5.x stop shields you do not use (except files, Web, network, &)
Shields of behavior) - double click on the icon in the Notification area - real time Orange - click on the
Shield that you want to stop - STOP. To stop the Orange icon to show an error indicator-
Click on the Orange icon - top right - settings - click on the status bar - uncheck shields you
disabled - click OK

Avast 4.8 x - home - free - stop shields, you don't need except leaving Standard, Web,.
and the network running. (Double-click the blue icon - look OK. - upper left - Shields details
Finish those you don't use).

Or use Microsoft Security Essentials - free

Prevx works well alongside MSE or Avast

Prevx - home - free small, fast, exceptional protection CLOUD, working with other security
programs. It is a single scanner, VERY EFFICIENT, if it finds something come back here
or use Google to see how to remove.   <-->  <-->

PCmag - Prevx - Editor's choice, 2817,2346862,00.asp

Also get Malwarebytes - free - use as scanner only. If you ever think malware and that
would be unusual with Avast and occasional Prevx running with the exception of a low level cookie
(not much), to UPDATE and then run it as a scanner. I have a lot of scanners and they
never find anything of note that I started to use this configuration.

I hope this helps.

    Why you want to reinstall your PC? It could be that you don't need to reinstall Windows, and solutions you could solve, which is recommended.

    However, if you want to reinstall your Windows, it's NOT F8, F8 key belongs to Windows and he'll fix the problems. To reinstall Windows, you must use differently for Dell steps:

    And for more details, you could visit the Dell Web site and search for your model and find the method to do this, or contact technical support:

    Hello edarsa,

    Here is the link to the troubleshooting article for the problem you are experiencing.

    An alphanumeric Code (example: ' 0 x 'r' C2...) ") or 'Ink system failure' Error Message is displayed on the front panel when printing

    The troubleshooting steps would be determined by a few factors with the printer.

    1 has a removable printhead

    2. what ink it uses

    Try the following article, and then through the proper path to try the mentioned troubleshooting steps.

    One of the steps you mentioned seems half valid. When you turn off the printer, you want to ensure you disconnect everything and then to wait 60 seconds. By disconnecting all that you allow the priner to discharge completely before returning. If the printer is connected during this time there is always a current electricity flowing to the machine.

    Hello allan299,

    Thank you for using communities of Apple Support.

    According to your post, I see that you have any questions on how and when your computer shuts down, and how the WiFi on your Mac is affected. I know it's nice to be able to properly manage what happens when your computer stops and starts in mode 'sleep'. I'm happy to help you find the best resolution.

    You're right, when your computer stops completely it will turn the Wi - Fi. If you enable the wake for network access, Wi - Fi remains lit, and you can access shared resources on your computer, such as printers or iTunes shared playlists even when your computer is in "sleep". Definition of a calendar closing and start on your Mac can also be useful.

    Check out the following resources that will help the set options that control the energy use of your computer, sleep, and wake-up times for your Mac and the calendar from your Mac to turn on or turn off or go to sleep:

  • On the start with progress bar page, after that it becomes a little more than half, the computer turns off.

    MY MacBook Pro is frozen and I had to turn off get out of the frozen page and when I pressed the button to turn it on it makes the departure noise and then the progress bar lights. When it becomes a little to Midway, the screen goes black and the computer turns off.

    The progress bar that starts from the left end appears when your startup disk is too damaged to mount. The illustrious progress is the functioning of the equivalent of disk utility (ERD). He is never more than half before taking a decision.

    If your drive CAN be mounted, start-up continues normally.

    If your drive cannot be mounted, your Mac stops, because there is nothing productive that it can do.

    If your Mac is trying to start and crashes, which can produce always different results, but that doesn't seem to be the case here.

    I recommend that you start in recovery and run utility disk (ERD) until it comes clean or is hopelessly.

    Hi B Odd Andersen,

    I want to clarify if your computer seems to be sleeping or it completely closed after being idle for a while.

    Method 1: If the computer is in power saving mode, check if you can wake the computer from this State by moving the mouse or pressing any key on the keyboard.

    Method 2: Change the power to another and check to see if the problem persists
    Change, create, or delete a power plan (scheme)

    Method 3: check the logs in event viewer for more information on auto-off down

    Open event viewer

    What are the information in event logs? (Event Viewer)

    Note: For your safety and security, it is not recommended to disable Windows Update.
    Activate the update or disable automatic

  • 2-3 days after the expiry of my warranty of one year, my computer turns off suddenly during use. I rebooted, but it stopped again.

    2-3 days after the expiry of my warranty of one year, my computer turns off suddenly during use.  I rebooted, but it stopped again.

    The model is that the computer runs for 15-30 minutes, then suddenly stops, the system reboots, runs for 2-3 minutes, stops, restarts, spans less than a minute, stops, restarts, stop after a few seconds, etc., and at that time there I give until the next day when I repeat the same cycle all over.    I have Windows Vista Home Premium 32 bit and it is a model of Dell Inspiron 518.  There is no error message but a beep at startup upward.  I ran Windows repair program 'Start' who did a restore without success.  The problem occurs even in Safe Mode.

    Does anyone have a guess as to what is the diagnosis?  Thank you.


    Could be hardware or even heat and ventilation the related. Try using a small fan to increase ventilation. When a PC

    As it does in Mode safe so you probably need technical support in a real store of the computer - no Peeks/leeks at BestBuy or other large shopping areas. Very difficult to solve if it does not remain under tension.
    It remains under tension if you start from the disc of Vista?


    Look in the Event Viewer to see if something is reported on these reboots.
