I bought my computer last October a Dell latitude e5410 core i5 4gb mem. with only onboard graphics. also came with win7 and xp downgrade. unfortunately xp was installed. so I installed win7 myself and immediately installed norton NIS2011 then I connected to the Internet updated. installed drivers etc. from the very beginning I had problems with computer hanging. screen would simply freeze to no avail requiring restart. freezes seemed random could happen twice a day or not happen for a week.
I have the same problem on my HP laptop, suddenly all system freezes and I cannot do anything except hold shut down button. I have monitored my CPU performance on startup and it goes crazy when my avast anti-virus is updating almost about 70% of cpu usage.
Technical details: Celeron Dual-Core CPU T3100 @ 1.90 GHz, 3gb ram, Mobile intel 4 Series Express Chipset Family
I haven't done anything with programs, have run ccleaner few times, also Disk Clean up and defragmenter. Scanned with the same avast scanner and Trend Micro House call, everything was fine. But never done any cleaning in 'fan' region.
I recently removed a fake windows restore virus and now, unlike before, when I select hibernate, the laptop actually just shuts down. When I restart everything I was working is gone. Obviously something is corrupted. Is there a way to repair that? To get rid of the virus I used a combination of Webroot, a program called trojan-killer and system restore.
My daughter got a Security Shield virus on her laptop and I managed to remove it using this BC thread: [URL]. The laptop uses Windows 7. The removal seemed to work fine, although one slightly odd thing (compared to the thread's advice) was that I didn't have to change the LAN settings/Proxy server when I booted up in Safe Mode - the virus was preventing internet access but didn't appear to be doing so by the Proxy server change. So I was able to access the internet perfectly well when in Safe Mode with Networking.
I downloaded everything I needed using the laptop wirelesly and scanned/removed the 2 security shield virus files using malware bytes. Then, when I rebooted as normal in order to complete the process and update the HOSTS files, I couldn't access the internet wirelessly. The router is working fine and when I connect via ethernet cable the laptop communicates fine with the internet. It just refuses to let me connect wirelessly.
I have tried: - Checking all firewall options in McAfee (though I guess this wouldn't enable a wired connection either if it was the problem) - Removing and reinstalling the wireless device (via device manager) - Deleting and resetting up the wireless profile Just not sure what to do next....
My firewall, security settings and browsing has been disabled. The various remedies (process explorer, task manager) has been tried in SAFE MODE but they do not work.removal of win7 internet security 2011 virus.

How do I write protect a DVD-R after burning files that I want to permanently back up?
I've burned jpg images to a DVD+R for permanent backup with windows 7 drag & drop. I close the DVD burn session which I have read "finalizes" it but when I load the DVD I can still burn or delete files on it. If the files have the same name they are overwritten. I want to write protect the DVD. When I used Windows XP I used Roxio to drag & drop files to DVD & the disc had to be finalized so it could be read on other computers. This write protected the disc & when it was reload on any computer properties showed there was no room on the disc & it could not be written to & files could not be deleted.
On the right bottom of my screen is the msg: "Internet Protect Mode: Off.I know how to get the screen for this to show, but I'm not sure how I should mark off the settings; i.e. disable, enable, prompt. I'm afraid I'll chose the "wrong button".
