Besides being very computer unsavvy, I know that on my Windows 7, IE 9 with
google as my search engine I am having, for at least the past week problems. When I put in a seach item it takes a year and a day before the spinning wheel stops turning. Then I may or may not be able to open to a site. Best luck is with sites I have as favs like, fb, gmail. Troubleshooting tells me I Have too many programs running at startup and to delete the one I don't need. Problem is I have no idea what I need or don't. Writing this on my husband's computer,which I don't think is trouble free either but I have been told to not do anything on his, which is fine. I just need HELP with mine. Thanks to anyone who has the time.

Really sick and tired of ie 9 the past week but not very computer savvy so it would be like talking to a 7 yr old. Can I uninstall Internet Explorer (I guess 9 is the add on)in the condition it's in which it takes forever to start due to 'too many programs starting at start up' which I can't seem to fix by any of the 4 methods Microsoft gives me. If I did this would I lose FaceBook, Gmail, Itunes and any pictures I have in Windows Live Photo Gallery and some other place just called 'pictures' in the area to the right of Programs (see you would be speaking to someone very unknowledgeable) or should I just try and try again to get IE 9 to work, which when it did suited me fine because of the favorites and opening tab after tab after tab to open new sites. Am I making any sense? The more I read about the vulnerabilities of IE the more uncomfortable I get but I have Micro Security Essentials which seemed to be catching things, albeit 5 hrs after the apparent horrible, terrible virus was noticed. Typing this on husband's computer (he knows less than I do so we need to bibe our 16 yr old a lot but I'm tired of that route too). Your site comes very well recommended and at least I feel there is someone to trust but not sure if even posting correctly here. Wrote earlier under akc and see there were some replies but can't even find them. Remember please I could so much use the help but I'm pretty useless about a lot. Believe it's a 32 bit, Windows 7 with 9 added on for better use and I use google as a search engine. Just don't want to crash and burn the whole thing which I may already have done. Thank anyone. Arleen

Do the following:

Download Autoruns for Windows, http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb963902.aspx , save to desktop.

Doubleclick autoruns.zip file...elect to Extract All...push Next...push Next...Yes To All...press Finish.

On the new screen that remains...click autoruns.exe, then Run.

Browse to the tab which is headed Logon...click it. Expand the screen so that you can see everything on that tab.

Take a screen shot, save it...post it in your next post.

Very new to this site and can already see it's a gift but am so unsure how to use it. I have Windows 7 and Internet Explorer. Here's where I get lost. I believe IE explorer is my browser? and know that a lot of problems have been going on. I've posted before but so stupid, get this, that when I see replies under my posts I don't know how to view them. I know this is pathetic but I can follow along. So, my system starts, takes password, I entered the 'blue screen view site' recommended and here we sit. Does the system know enough not to open this site because it may help with solution or am I just wasting my time because it's too far gone. I will post and try to find any answers anyone suggests and I'm really thankful for the help. It's just that, even with this site that I know is good, I'm too unsavvy to navigate around. Thanks to anyone. Sorry, using my son's computer to post this. Mine is frozen. Any info machine has given prior is 'too many programs running at start up'.
