Should I delete the programs of 2004? How can you know what is safe to delete?

Original title: remove programs

I think I have a virus.  I see on my computer a few applications with and installed as of 2004.  The computer was purchased in 2007.  When I run it in safe mode, it works fine and all applications have a date of 2007 or newer.  Should I delete the programs of 2004? How can you know what is safe to delete?

Hello

This is not an indication of malware. Could be those are placed on the
computer by the manufacturer of the system and that was the date that firstly, they prepared their
for massive installation, or if they did not set a date and be used arbitrarily.

=============================================================

If you need search malware here's my recommendations - they will allow you to
scrutiny and the withdrawal without ending up with a load of spyware programs running
resident who can cause as many questions as the malware and may be more difficult to detect as the
cause.

No one program cannot be used to detect and remove any malware. Added that often easy
to detect malicious software often comes with a much harder to detect and remove the payload. Then
its best to be thorough than paying the high price later now too. Check with them to one
extreme overkill point and then run the cleaning only when you are sure that the system is clean.

It can be made repeatedly in Mode safe - F8 tap that you start, however, you must also run
the regular windows when you can.

  • How can you know what drivers and programs are essential and those that can be deleted without harming my computer?

    Original title: completely clueless

    I'm totally clueless when it comes to computers, but I try very hard to learn. I am using the help section a LOT, but I can't seem to find an answer to the only thing that makes me crazy. How can you know what drivers and programs are essential and those that can be deleted without harming my computer? I have a very basic net accountant I learn on before I screw up a portable more expensive and I do a cleaning on my C and D drives to improve performance because it runs so slow but it tells me I have the drivers who slow down Windows. I would greatky appreciate any assistance from someone who has the patience of a saint and is willing to take the time to explain it to me, in terms laymans. Thanks in advance

    Drivers: you should know what you bought (in your machine) and what * you * want out of it.  If you want stability and things work properly - let alone the drivers.  If you want more performance check (and other games) in the drivers of motherboard chipset and video network from the manufacturers Web site... For more stability stick with the OEM website (HP, Dell, Lenovo - the assembler of the whole machine) and slightly more performance/push the limits (even if they want to work too - so still some stability) - access to websites of its components manufacturer.

    With regard to the programs: you can decide what you use and do not use.  If you are not sure, look it up (Google) or ask.

  • How can you know what charger completed?

    I am loading a bunch of SWF files in my movie, and when they finished loading I need to change each color of sovereign wealth funds based on my xml data. My problem is when my Event.COMPLETE off I do not know what charger, it belongs to retrieve the correct XML. I tried to give the names of my Chargers but I can't access the Event.Complete function name. My trace causes the error: the property name not found on flash.display.LoaderInfo and there is no default value. How to access my charger name?

    for (var w3:int = 0; w3 < cartXML...) Item.length (); W3 ++) {}

    var thumbLoader:Loader = new Loader();
    thumbLoader.name = String (w3);
    thumbLoader.contentLoaderInfo.addEventListener (Event.COMPLETE,
    {function(e:Event):void}
    thumbCount ++;
    trace (e.Target.Name);
    If {("setSkinColor" in e.currentTarget.content)
    Object (e.currentTarget.content) .setSkinColor (bought. @bodyColor, 255);
    }
    else {}
    e.currentTarget.content.setData (255,255).

    }
    });
    var thumbURL:URLRequest = new URLRequest (this. Path access + cartXML... Item [W3] .source);
    thumbLoader.load (thumbURL);
    }

    The target of the event is the contentLoaderInfo.  So if you want to find the name of the shipper, you should be able to use: e.target.loader.name

  • How can you know what remains during a restore?

    I just got a new iphone more than 6 s and its been 2 days and is always restore things. is it possible to know what remains to restore or if its stuck? I was going to upgrade the software on it but can not until its finished. TIA

    Hello SCB1021,

    Restore my device from a backup to iCloud takes a long time

    Restoring a backup can take time because of the size of the backup or the speed of Wi - Fi network. For example, iCloud may take about 1 to 4 hours per gigabyte during a restore process.

    There are several steps that follow:

    • In iOS 8 or later, check the status of the transfer on your device under settings > iCloud > Backup. If the restore process is in progress, the backup setting is gray.
    • Make sure that your device is connected to the Internet with reliable WiFi.
    • Make sure that your device is plugged into a power outlet.
    • Check the Apple progress bar that is displayed during the transfer of a backup.

    If you need help, restore your device from a backup to iCloud

    Thank you for using communities Support from Apple.

  • How can you know what folio (resolution) is sent to the different devices?

    Hello

    I want ot know how works the Viewer application tells wich folio downlaod on a specific device, it must. Let me explain.

    We have created 2 sheets having the same content and all the same info (sheet name, name of the publication, etc.) well, all the same information except the product ID because the person that entered the inapp in itunes stores and the android store made a small typo.

    The thing is that on the android devices (we test on samsung Galaxy tab 10-inch (1280 x 800 screen resolution) and the flyer htc) it dowloads ipad folio.

    So my question is, if I do 2 folios and want all android devices to download that we do for android (due to limitations in videos) and want only ipad to download the ipad, do - what I have to do?

    Thank you!

    When you configure the formats associated with Android, you create renditions 1232 x 752 and 1024 x 600 at least. That covers most of the devices, although there are a few new 1024 x 768 Android devices, including the AT & T device impermeable to water. If you create three renditions - 1232 x 752, 1024 x 768 and 1024 x 600 - you will effectively cover all of the great features currently supported. When the phones are supported, and when the iPad3 comes out, you'll want to probably to add more "rendition".

  • An error occurred during the creation of the factory data recovery - how can I know what is the error?

    I have a new Dell Inspiron 15 5000 series laptop.  Trying to create a backup on an external hard drive plant.  I tried to attach the USB at various times in the process and several USB ports, but always end upward with the same error message ' year error occurred while creating the factory recovery data.

    I tried to "update", but when I select UPDATE, the only option is to UPGRADE to premium, I can't find a way to UPDATE.

    This is the end of the story: I had two sessions of phone with Dell Technical Support, and their solution was to send me a flash drive with backup and restore files.  The next day, I got a Dell alert that a new backup and restore (version 1.9) download is available for Dell computers, which were updated to 10 Windows (what I did as soon as I got my new laptop).  I had the chance to download the file and run it today, and it works.

    Thanks for your suggestion.  It seems that my problem occurred just in front of the Dell solution.

    I bought a laptop with a windows xp pro, I have the serial number, but I don't have the installation disc. How can I know which version I need? SP3 has not worked... at the moment I am testing SP1

    The serial number of the computer has nothing to do with the product key for Windows.

    What happened when you tried to install Xp with sp3? If you do not have the original for the computer that you use to install Windows?

    You can try to contact the manufacturer of the computer who may be able to provide the recovery disc. The disks are usually under $ 20.

  • Is it possible to change sequence settings after you start a project? Also, how can I know what sequence of parameters are best for clips that I have?

    Is it possible to change sequence settings after you start a project? Also, how can I know what sequence of parameters are best for clips that I have?
    The clips I have are HD and .mp3. MTS files.

    In the latest version of Premiere Pro, it is possible to change the settings for the sequence.

    You know what settings are best knowing what you are doing.  (Personally I'm fan of formal education for this.)  I know that sounds sarcastic, but, there is no right answer to the question whose parameters are the best.  There are many variables here, then... you really need to know what you're doing.
