How come I cannot get a USB pen drive and USB mouse to work at the same time? 

by on February 28, 2009

Q: In these last few days, whenever I attach a new pen drive and optical mouse to my PC, a window comes up requesting for the installation of a new hardware (which obviously is never found because no CD came with the mouse or pen drive).

Subsequently both mouse and pen drive doesn’t work on my PC. I’ve already tried them on my laptop and they worked just fine (with no installation required).

I don’t think it’s a USB problem with my PC because everything else that has long been attached to the PC (through USB connection) works just fine!

How come I cannot reinstall Microsoft Picture It after uninstalling it? 

by on February 26, 2009

Q: I had to remove Microsoft Picture It 7 from my computer. I did a search and remove everything related to it. I have the disc and am trying to reinstall Microsoft Picture It. When I insert the disc in the drive, it starts and asks, Do you want to run Picture It? I click yes and nothing else happens. I also open my computer and the drive and clicked autorun. Still it starts and then nothing. Even copied all the files to my hard drive, clicked autorun and it starts and run (you can hear it) but nothing else happens. My computer is running Windows XP.

 
 

What are the correct temporary files to delete to make my computer run better? 

by on February 26, 2009

Q: Everything you do on a computer is saved on the hard drive, even if you delete it, there is still a part of it left in the hard drive. How can you go into the hard drive and delete all of the temporary internet files and all the other files. No matter how much I delete files, my computer speed doesn’t improve, load increases. When my dad gives the computer to somebody that knows this stuff, they find all kinds of files and then the computer gets better and all junk files are gone. How can a normal person delete all of these junk files in the hard drive? Please tell me the procedure to go in the system files and delete all of this junk.
