Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
Read the article that everyone's commenting on.
Heard about your site on one of the PC oriented radio shows. Heard someone ask about a slow PC. Host recommended your site. I had the problem too and went to your site. Your recommendation to try Process Explorer allowed me (a novice)to locate a problem with my firewall (on/off cycling process, CPU up to 100% every 20 seconds). Went to firewall software and reset firewall enable...fixed problem immediately. THANKS SO MUCH!
In my Ctrl-alt-del there is a program simply called "A". what is it? please email me a response A.S.A.P. thanks
Darned good question. I assume you are running Win9x? Grab a copy of Process Explorer from sysinternals, referenced in the article. Run it and you'll at least be able to see where "A" is on your hard drive. From there you can begin to investigate, again as outlined in the article. I also assume you've already run virus and spyware scans.
I accedently shut down a proces in taskmgr and now all the tabs (like programs and network ... ) are gone, i can't make them reapear. I've tryed to use system restore but it doesn't work. What should I do?
This is realy annoying.
thanks in advance.
Rebooting should resolve anything caused by killing a task in taskmanager.
About missing tabs in taskmanager:
I had the same problem. Rebooting didn't help me, but I simply double clicked on the 'frame', the grayish border(?) and the tabs all came back. Double click again to make them disappear again.
