What is wrong with my computer it is running really slow and some programs will not open please help?
How do I get to a place in Windows XP where I can stop certain programs from running. I only have 1GB memory.?
Umm, can you at least see your task bar? I'll finish answering later after you add additional info. Ctrl+Alt+Del is the only way you can see that right now...never heard of your problem before so ...not sure srry, ttyl.
Go to RUN and type: %temp%..then delete all files go to RUN and type: prefetch ENTER then delete all files Don't have any icons on desktop except important ones. just have 10 items on desktop, move others to a folder on other drivers then Go to RUN and type : msconfig....enter...click on start up tab and then uncheck any unnecessary programs
ctrl + alt + delete is the most famous way there are a lot of security programmes which allows you to see and control the running programmes but i do not recommend it to any user who is not an expert
Maybe you have mounted the ISO file in a program like daemon tools. If that is the case, you will have to open the program and unmount the file. Then you can delete it. Good luck
