    Anyone downloaded the privacy controls application yet? I think I want something that will completely erase stuff from my computer. I heard when you delete stuff it isn’t really deleted so I may try it. – Shawn

  2. Admin:

    Shawn – Yes Privacy Controls is a great application. You are right.. when you delete something, it is just giveing your PC an ok to “over-write it” so it is still on your hard drive. The Privacy Controls will completely delete anything you want deleted. Thanks for the comment! ~ Peter

  3. Liza:

    Outstanding site. Just wanted to tell you the information is fantastic for a computer dumb girl like me! Liza

  4. LouisK:

    Fantastic page! I will be recommending this site to a few people I know who need pc advice. Hats off to providing straight forward info o all of us.

  5. Josh:

    If anyone is wondering, yes SpeedyPC does fix blue screen errors. I ran the scan and it found over 600 errors and my blue screen went away. Josh

  6. Antonella:

    This is a great software. I can recomend it to everyone.

  7. PCwiz:

    I appreciate the advice especially since my computer needed a good overhaul. I liked reg cure and also the perfect uninstaller program works really well too. great advice here

  8. Aiden:

    Hey guys on startup my new vista keeps tuning the screen black as it loads and when it goes to the desktop it does this too, i find turning the screen off and on a few times helps or just restarting it.. this randomly happens when im just using the comp too, its a desktop, any help?

  9. Peter:


    I would recommend you update your drivers. This sounds like a potential outdated driver. Visit this site for help:


    Hope this helps!

  10. Jitendra K Bharai:

    Windows vista service pack 1 (KB936330) Failed: Error Details: Code 4C7
    Can somebody help fix this problem for me.
    I can be reached at ::admin removed email::
    Thanks in advance.

  13. Peter:


    This error is typically caused by McAfee anti-virus. I would recommend you disable any anti-virus program you may have running, and then manually attempt the update.

    If this doesn’t help, then I would recommend you contact Microsoft Vista support.

    I sure hope this helps!


  14. dean:

    hi guys i have just had laptop repaired its taken a while it was because my laptop was running at 100%cpu without any programmes being run. this has come back and i have eventually fixed the problem…for now. but since this,when i view anybodies webcam the cam freezes and will stay still and frozen. i also do not know if i have the correct driver for my sound. can anyone please help me to find a free site that will scan drivers etc and check if my real player etc etc is all up to date as i have subsequently had to reinstall windows and now im just stuck! please with your clever minds and expertise help a guy in trouble??

  15. Peter:


    I would advise using a driver updater utility like this one:


    It will scan your system and update any drivers that are out of date.

    Other than that, try un-installing real player, and then re-installing.

    Hope this helps!

  38. Bonnie Lou:

    Hi, I am a NOVICE PC user & I searched but couldn’t find the forum I needed to post my question and or PC problems in. My OS is Windows XP Home Edition SP3 with IE7. (Installed IE8 but it wouldn’t run) so I went back to IE7. I use Windows Firewall and I recently upgraded my Security from Avanquest Fix-it Utilities 8 to Avanquest System Suite 9. I have DSL HighSpeed & my ISP is QWEST with MSN Browser which I use as my Home Page. I am completely NOVICE with the configurations and settings under all Tabs in Internet Properties (General through Advanced). I do not know what to enable or disable and or what to check or uncheck. My problems: I never had problems when playing at POGO before but now I get a pop-up error: In order to play Pogo games you need to install the latest version of Java Plug-in,(which I already have). So I verify & tested & I do have the latest version, but I still get the same error when clicking a game. So maybe my settings are not correct. Also, when I am on the Internet my PC sometimes reboots by itself then it will disconnect me from the internet about every 20 to 30 minutes with a Pop-up Error: MSN was unable to load a required library msnmetal.dll; with then, another Pop-up Error: Windows Delayed Write Failed: Windows was unable to save all the data for the file…data has been lost. May be caused by a failure of your hardware or network connection. Please try to save this file elsewhere. Then, my mouse freezes and I have to reboot. After rebooting; I went to the Control Panel, clicked on the Add/Remove Icon to uninstall Avanquest Sys. Suite 9 because I thought this may be the problem. However, the Add/Remove Page only opened for a split second then I was taken back to the Control Panel. Now I can’t add/remove programs. I rebooted again & ran a deep scan for any AV and or AS using Avanquest System Suite 9. When it finished scanning, it reported: No Problems Found (which I didn’t believe). That is when I Shut Down my PC and will not turned it back on until I get some advice and support from this forum on How-to fix it & or troubleshoot. I am now using my daughter’s VISTA PC which runs great with no problems. THANK-YOU, HOPE TO HEAR FROM YOU! Sincerely, Bonnie Lou

    I can’t load me games or play.It freezes al the time.It is so slow

  82. Logan:


    Thanks for posting here! Upgrading your hardware can be a good idea if your PC is less than 3 years old.

    My general rule of the thumb, is if a pc is 3 years old or more, it’s not worth sinking the money into new hardware. You’d be better off buying a new PC.

    Hardware can be pretty expensive to begin with!

    Looking at your system specs and the lower cost of hardware for you, I think you could get away with an upgrade to be honest.

    My advice, lose the AMD and go i3 no question.

    Thank you once again for posting!
