5 Steps To Boost PC Performance
Author: Randolph Tanner

There is no running away from deteriorating PC performance, no matter what the
brand of your PC or the programs installed. A practical approach would be to
follow a routine that helps withstand all the ills of PC usage. However, this is not
possible in real life.

There are many ways in which you can enhance the performance of your PC.
They all boil down to the 5 steps that we have listed below:

Regular Registry Clean Up
Clean Up And Defragment Hard Drive
Regular Malware Scan
Modify Visual Affects of PC
Manage Programs that Load at System Start-up
Regular Registry Clean-Up

The most important activity that you need to perform to speed up your PC is to
clean your windows registry. All Windows operating systems (OS), including
Windows XP and Windows Vista, use the registry as a centralized hierarchal
database to store all hardware and software configuration information, system
settings, and user preferences data. This is the reason why the registry keeps
growing as data is accessed, added or removed from it and eventually gets
damaged and fragmented. This increases the data access time of the PC, slows
it down, and may even leave the PC unbootable.

These problems can be prevented with regular scanning and removal of
unwanted, outdated, and invalid information from the registry. These tasks can
be easily performed using a reliable, efficient and easy-to-use registry cleaner
utility. Today, there are many such tools available in the market. However, it is
important that you go through their features and user reviews to be sure that you
buy/download the tool that best suits your needs.

Clean Up And Defrag Hard Drive

The Hard Disk of your PC gets clogged with unwanted files, cookies or programs
with time. To fix slow computer problems, it is important that you use the Disk
Cleanup utility already provided in your Windows XP and Vista ‘System Tools.’
This gets rid of all junk and frees up space on your disk. It does not end here! In
addition to this, you must regularly defragment your hard disk using the Disk
Defragmenter tool to make your data files contiguous. The Disk Defragmenter
tool also makes your Windows programs easily accessible. It may seem tedious
and unimportant, but this enhances your PC performance by a large percentage.


                                         4
Regular Malware Scan

Malware programs, such as spyware, adware, viruses, Trojans, and worms can
really slow the speed of your PC to the point of frustration. To add to the
degradation in PC performance, these programs add malicious files and registry
entries that generate innumerable system errors and cause severe damage to
your system and data files. Therefore, detecting and getting rid of these files is
really important. You can easily do this with the help of reliable anti-virus and
anti-spyware tools.

This activity will have double benefit if you perform registry clean-up soon after
anti-spyware/virus scans to ensure that all malicious registry keys are completely
eliminated.

Modify the Visual Affects of PC

Although visual effects such as animated Windows or fading menus are visually
stimulating they consume a lot of space. Additionally, they devour a lot of system
resources and slow down your PC. Therefore, much as you may like them, it is
advisable to avoid such resource-consuming visual effects to enhance PC
performance.

Managing Programs that Load at System Start-up

When you install various applications and tools on your system, many processes
are added to the load when your system starts up. The worst thing about these
start-up programs is that they continue running in the background, even if you
don’t need them and continue feeding on the PC’s resources. Therefore, to avoid
a possible slow-down, you must disable unnecessary programs from loading at
the system start-up. Using the System Configuration utility that opens by running
the “msconfig” command can do this. There are several advanced Registry
cleaners with features that make it easier for you to manage start-up programs.

A look at all these steps tells us ‘we-know-it-but-don’t-use-it!’ By following these
simple procedures regularly will ensure enhanced PC performance, and a
reduction in your frustration levels induced largely by stubbornly slow/disobedient
computers!

A Registry Fix Means Optimized Performance
Author: Jonathon Blocker

One of the greatest benefits of working in a Windows-based PC environment is
the flexibility of hardware and software options. Ironically, this can also lead to
one of the most problematic drawbacks. Incompatibilities between programs and
drivers installed on your system can seriously degrade its performance.

When your system begins to run at a snail’s pace, it’s time to optimize pc
performance. One of the most effective ways of doing this is to cleanup registry
issues.

Why a http://www.pcfixreview.com/registry-fixer/ registry fix may be needed

Anytime changes are made to your PC, it can effect the overall operation of your
system. When new hardware is added to the system, it often entails the
installation of drivers or special software programs to power its operation.

Similarly, every time a new application is installed or an existing application
upgraded, this software is also loaded into the Windows system. In both cases,
the registry is likely to be involved.

The registry is a directory within Windows that stores system settings and
options. Changes to hardware and software associated with your PC also means
changes to the registry.

Sometimes these changes are not fully compatible, leading to performance
degradation. To counteract these issues, it’s a good idea to periodically run
http://www.pcfixreview.com/category/registry-fix/ windows registry repair.

Benefits of PC registry repair

Clearing out incompatibilities or even data corruption with a pc registry fix can
significantly optimize pc performance. After a thorough cleanup, registry data can
be accessed without hindrance. There are noticeable improvements in operation
speed and less cases, if any at all, of software “hanging” or locking up.

When it’s time to run a registry fix

When noticeable performance issues occur with any sort of regularity, it’s a good
time to consider windows registry repair. There can be any number of issues that
pop up when a pc registry fix is needed, but some of the more common issues
include :



                                         6
•       Pronounced degradation in speed – One of the most common giveaways
that a registry fix is in order is a system slowdown.

•      Lockups during boot or in running applications – When your pc stalls or
locks up during the boot cycle or when running software that normally has no
issues, it could be indicative of the need for windows registry repair.

•       Blue screen of death – When normal PC operation is interrupted by the
Windows warning screen and a system crash, it’s a pretty safe bet that
 http://www.pcfixreview.com/registry-fixer/ registry repair is warranted.

I fell in love with a laptop
Author: Sarah Maple

The Eee - strange name, isn't it? White, roughly tablet sized, and inclined to
make a person feel a tad loved up (towards it, at least, if not towards everyone
else)... actually, I think I can see why Asus called it that now.

Or perhaps there's supposed to be an unspoken "ba gum!" at the end of it? After
all, you could easily be forgiven for uttering such a thing after a quick play with
this impressive little gadget - I certainly did, and I'm not even from Yorkshire.

But what exactly am I talking about, some of you will be wondering (unless you
clicked the link)? And those who already know will probably be wondering why
I'm going on about something that's such old news.

Well, the other week was the first time that I, at long last, got my hands on one. It
was love at first sight. Well, for me anyway; the Eee, on the other hand, remained
quietly coy.

Like anyone else with half an interest in a
http://www.dealtime.co.uk/xPP-PC_Laptops I've been reading about the Eee's
sensibly priced, pocket sized loveliness for months. Cheap, portable, stripped
down to the essentials, quick loading, and mercifully free of Windows (if you
wish), it sounded just the thing for writing in cafes, staying in touch while abroad,
tapping away on during a long train journey - all the things that should be easy
with a larger laptop, but just aren't, unless you've got a couple of grand to spare.
Even one of the main drawbacks mentioned in the reviews - the dinky keyboard -
sounded like a positive to me (my hands aren't exactly the biggest). I want one, I
want one, I want one!!!.

It's another drawback that's always put me off, though: the lack of storage space.
Well, there's no DVD drive, either, but that can easily be got around. And given
that you're mostly going to be using the Eee for word processing, browsing, and
general net-based stuff, perhaps even the lack of memory isn't a huge
problem. Except, I knew I'd want it to store music. Perhaps even photos. Maybe
the next model would be the one; it was only the Eee 700 that I'd been trying out.

Enter, on the 1st May, the Eee 900

A little larger than the Eee 700 that sent a flutter through my wallet, and slightly
more expensive, but now with 20GB of storage space (in the Linux version),
twice the RAM, a better camera, and a multi-touch touchpad for improved
navigation, the Eee 900 sounds almost perfect.




                                          8
One last drawback remains: battery life. Unplugged, the new Eee will last about
2.5 hours - less than the 700. Maybe, then, for £329, I'd actually be better off
getting a cheap full-spec laptop, with - most likely - just the same battery life? Or
even just getting the cheaper Eee 700?

I still haven't decided. But maybe I won't have to.

Late next month, yet another model of the Eee will go on sale - using Intel's
power saving Atom processor. This time, it just might be the complete package. I
can't wait!

Notes on Buying a Pocket PC
Author: Derek McNeill

Compare Best UK Pocket PC's Prices at
http://www.deekstarshoppingnetwork.com/category.php?rb=4-61
Deekstar UK Computer PCs Price Comparison Site.

Buying a Pocket PC can be a bit of a challenge so here is a useful guide

Purchasing a pocket pc need not be hard if you follow the tips provided in this
guide.

Tip No. 1 - Making the Right Choice:

The reason that you would want to buy a Pocket PC even if it is as simple as just
for fun's sake is fine as long as you will be able to determine your real purpose of
buying. Realizing the reasons why you want to have a Pocket PC should be your
top concern just before anything else so that you will have the real driven
purpose and to greatly enjoy its benefits. Your decisions must require some
smart thinking if you think a Pocket PC can help you throughout your daily
routine or in business, it is worth owning.

Tip No. 2 - Discover just what the Device can do:

Once you are happy with your price comparison choice you will need to educate
yourself about the many capabilities this tiny computer has that can benefit your
life. You can't just purchase it because it's cool and looks fancy, you know better
than that.

You should research and be knowledgeable about the different capabilities of
your Pocket PC's operating systems so that you will truly comprehend its
importance. However, you would be wise to find out more before you commit
yourself to the purchase otherwise you will be forced to believe everything the
salesperson tells you.

Tip No. 3 - Learn About it From Other Users:

You can't learn everything from books and magazines and usually the user
manual is an encyclopaedia of information. Sometimes you need to talk to other
people. To get a better idea bout the product you want, ask people on the
company's or any other forum that is dedicated to the device's users. There is no
reason why you cannot ask the manufacturers directly about their product if
you wish. If you have specific questions you know the manufacturer won't
answer, locate other users online and ask them as they are sure to tell you the
truth.


                                         10
Tip No. 4 - Locating Relevant Price comparison websites Can Also Prove
Useful:

Price comparison websites are the ones that can provide you with whatever you
may need or ask for online very cheap. If you want to be sure how other people
see a Pocket PC and get affected by owning it, then going over to review price
comparison websites can just give you loads of information that can either
confirm or throw your worries away. This will give you a better chance of
identifying the different kinds of hardware that's available in the market today. If
you want to know how a particular device is doing in the industry, then better
check those reviews as they can really be helpful and may come in handy. Price
comparison websites like Deekstar can also give you information on the things
that you ought to do and ought not to do.

Tip No. 5 – Get online and Shop:

One of the best things to do to look for a Pocket PC is by looking around the
web. On the high street PC retailers are just the best place to go and visiting
them can help you find the best information regarding the device, you can
request attendants to assist you with your questions. To make it even easier, if
they have broad range of models you might find that one you had not considered
is in fact superior to the one you had originally chosen. No two models are alike
and this is the best way to see the advantages and disadvantages of individual
models.

Tip No. 6 – What to Do Before a Purchase:

Even if you have found the right item to purchase, buying it shouldn't happen too
quickly. Search the Internet again, compare prices from the huge list of UK stores
at Deekstar and look for similar models first, this will save you a couple of pounds
when you find something similar and cheaper than the first one. Compare prices
intelligently and be sure that the unit comes with a warranty or guarantee.

Tip No. 7 – What Else but Enjoy:

The last thing to do now that you finally have your Pocket PC is to start learning
how it works and how you can use it yourself. It doesn't end there though, with
your PPC, you will be able to do everything a regular Computer can do, all from
the palm of your Hand! How'z about that for modernism.

Top 7 Business Computing Mistakes
Author: Glen L. Bowes

There is practically no one who manages their business manually anymore and
I'd venture to contend that those who do simply won't stay in business.
Computers are vital to business today but often they are taken for granted and
thought of as glorified typewriters.

Computers store critical data that could devastate a business should it be lost.
Below is a list of the things I see out there all the time that could spell disaster for
any small or medium sized business. If any of it sounds familiar, it might be worth
looking at your overall Information Technology strategy.

** Not watching the fort (or not having it watched)**

It happens - more often than you might think. Someone dutifully replaces the
backup tape everyday only to find out (sometimes too late) that the backup never
ran or that it failed. In the same vein, knowing about other problems that may be
going on behind the scenes can help prevent data loss and downtime.

It is vital to keep an eye on logs or automate the system so that failures generate
a service call for your service provider. The more you know about what's going
on with your systems, the better chance you have of avoiding costly problems.

** Failing to test restore **

Without a doubt, a properly working backup can save your bacon in the event of
hardware failure (hard drives always fail, it's only a question of when), virus
infection, fire, and so on.

With that said, your backup logs may indicate that everything is hunky dory until
you actually try to restore data. Only then do you find out that the data is
unreadable or otherwise useless to you.

** Not having a computer tech you can trust **

There is a big difference in what computer techs can do for you. The typical
CompTIA A+ Certified service technician can easily fix your home computer and
will be an invaluable asset to you for other home computing needs.

In your business however, you want to have someone who understands
networks, domains, business applications, web technologies, and all the pieces
that fit together to make a business hum in the technological sense. They should
also understand your business. This point shouldn't be taken lightly and shouldn't



                                          13
be based on hourly rates. A solid, and certified, business technician will save you
money and downtime – without exception.

** Not trusting your computer tech **

Once you have the right computer tech, trust his or her advice. Your tech will
have the experience and the know how to competently recommend the right
strategy to solve a given problem. It may be more expensive than another
solution or it may be less expensive. Either way, trust your tech to help you
make the right decision.

** Buying the wrong equipment **

Trust me on this - there is rarely a place in a business for Windows Vista or XP
Home versions. If there is only one computer and there will never be more,
maybe. Otherwise there is no place and you'll regret the purchase eventually.

The same goes for many other hardware and software products that might be
just fine in the home but don't belong in an office. Often it makes business sense
and money sense to think about what you actually need before walking into the
local business supply store and buying an off the shelf computer or network
equipment. Trust your tech to help with this.

** Using obsolete equipment **

Computers and everything else on the network have finite lifetimes. While it
makes sense to squeeze every day of lifetime out of a piece of equipment, there
comes a time when it slows to a crawl and wastes precious time or support is no
longer available for it and it becomes a security risk or downtime waiting to
happen.

** Ignoring free and low cost alternatives **

So often a business will see a need for custom software and rush off and hire a
firm to build that software from the ground up. The price tag for such ventures is
often tens of thousands of dollars, if not more. As you might hear Kevin O'Leary
say on CBC's Dragon's Den, "STOP THE MADNESS!"

So often there are open source or off the shelf software that will do much of what
a small business needs and if it's open source, it can be modified to do the rest.
Unlike the real world, in the computer world there is indeed such thing as a free
lunch, and often it will be the best lunch on the menu!

When Should You Do A Windows Registry Scan?
Author: Andrew McNaught

There are a number of reasons why you might want to do a Windows registry
scan. It could be that your computer is not running as fast as it was when you
first purchased it, or you may have started to be plagued by problems such as
blue screens of death, random crashing and freezing and DLL errors when trying
to load a file. These are all indications that you have a corrupt Windows registry,
and a Windows Registry scan should be conducted immediately.

So, why does the Windows registry become corrupted? To understand this, we
need to have an understanding of what the Windows registry actually does. The
registry is a complex database that manages options and settings for the
operating system, system policies, file associations and keeps track of installed
and uninstalled programs. Over time, errors can appear in the registry due to
incomplete and failed installations of programs. These errors and discrepancies
cause the kind of problems we mentioned in the first paragraph. How, then, can
you go about cleaning up the Windows registry so that your computer can be
back to normal?

There are three ways that you can go about this. The most drastic option would
be to reinstall the operating system as this would reset the Windows registry.
However this can take several hours and even longer to reinstall your programs
and settings to the way they were before. Another option would be to manually fix
the registry, however, even the most technically minded users would find this a
challenging prospect. In my opinion, the best course of action would be to
conduct a full Windows Registry scan in order to understand exactly what is
causing your system problems. Once the scan has been completed, the registry
repair program can begin to resolve the issues it has found.

There are literally dozens of programs out there that can conduct a Windows
registry scan for you. Some of the better known and most powerful programs
include RegCure and Registry Easy. Both these programs are able to perform
very in depth and detailed scans of your computers registry. Once the scan is
complete you will at least know the extent of your registry problems and can
decide on the best course of action to repair these problems.

Data Loss is Avoidable
Author: Simpson

Data loss brings nothing more than distress, awful business moments, panic and
agony, no doubt with the statement. But before claiming everything to data loss,
have you thought that this condition has been weaved by you only. Yes, this is
the truth. Have you ever looked for taking the backup? Have you been a caring
proprietor for the system and data? Have you ever implemented the tools which
can prevent your data? Perhaps, some of the questions have been answered as
‘No’. This is the reason why you are standing at this stage of complete disaster.

Data recovery companies always publish careful notes for protecting data, but
rare accomplishment brings data loss. When you will ask for the reasons of such
negligence, the answers would come out as lack of time, money and the most
stupid one, improper awareness and knowledge. Wake up; this is the Internet
world, which houses all the information about data protection and data recovery
tools. Make use of it so that you will never make data recovery as a future need.

Make regular backups, keep your ears to the hard drive, install the anti programs
for viruses, spyware and malware, think twice before you do any data threatening
act, maintain the system, defragment regularly, and more. Reading will not be
enough, unless implemented.

But I think still if data protection measures will continue growing in number and
efficiency, data loss incidents will not stop. Data recovery industry do
understands this fact and hence, has been building its techniques and level of
data recovery. So far, the ways available are http://www.stellarinfo.com data
recovery software and data recovery service, each having an improving caliber to
grow.

Data recovery software are coded products, through which data recovery
companies target logical data loss instances. The main goal of their creation that
the victims can operate them sitting at their place, may not feel any sort of
operational difficulty, can become superhero to solve accidental deletion, virus
attack like problems by themselves. Actually, they have a scanning mechanism
for the lost data, which work with the abstract view to the users.

On contrary to data recovery software, data recovery service is not at all
operable by the users. This is help when something physical has eaten up the
data accessibility. The hard drive internals may appear solid, but actually are too
sensitive mere dust like things, so demand expert care when the mishap strikes.

Data recovery service covers all the points, including giving the sterilized
environment to the damaged component replacement.



                                         17
Under this part, only the most efficient procedures and tools can bring the results,
the others will do more disasters.

loss problem. Over more than15 years of experience and a huge client base,
Stellar’s supreme http://www.stellarinfo.com data recovery software and
proficient data recovery service can convert impossible to possible.

Hard Drive Recovering Made Affordable!
Author: Raymond Horne

You just put in your last bit of documentation into your accounting software,
whew! When unexpectedly, a clicking starts, then some pausing on the screen,
then blackness. What, not now! You begin thinking about lost data, all the
photos, all the retirement figures! Sometimes the more you fiddle with the
crashed drive the worse it gets. When a drive goes down you normally lose
everything, which can be an extremely heavy burden. Then the tremendous
anguish and frustration that follows.

There are a few ways a drive can go down: Are you Googling for 'dead hard drive
recovery', 'corrupt hard drive recovery', 'clicking hard drive recovery?' If you're
like me you're looking for the experts that know what they're doing and simply
'cheap hard drive recovery'.

Hard driver recovery cost can get expensive. Paying upwards of $2000 is
normal. What is a good hard drive recovery price? Hard drive recovery doesn't
need to be such a headache. There are companies out there that charge under
$1,000.00 for complete restoration.

Clean rooms are critical, make sure the company has one. A clean room is very
important for a corrupt hard drive recovery. A clean room is the only way to keep
the disk sanitary during an examination and analysis.

Why do most companies charge so much? When you just lost some of the most
important information you have and need to get valuable documents returned,
you can see why many will pay it. However, you found this blog, now you won't
go broke trying to find a cheap hard drive recovery cost.

http://www.harddriverecoveryinc.com/Rates.htm How does never anymore than
$785 sound? Seriously, there's no way! It doesn't matter how severely parts are
not functioning, how corrupt the data is, even if the hard drive isn't recognized. It
doesn't even matter what kind of data storage device you have, Hard Drives,
Tapes, Raid Arrays, Smart Cards, whatever!
