    AVG removal

    You will need to uninstall AVG, not simply remove its files. You should go to the AVG website, Support, and search for precise instructions as to how to remove AVG and all its remnants. Some anti-virus products require a two-step un-installation. AVG may require that their removal tool if the Add/Remove programs does not successfully uninstall it. Here is a link to the AVG support site: https://support.avg.com/supportArticleView?urlname=How-to-uninstall-AVG&l=en_US Good luck. Hope this helps. Have a great day. Regards, -Phil

    CD Burning

    If you are talking about a standalone CD player in a car or attached to a stereo system, the media files must be burned in "audio CD" format to be played. Those CD music files can also be played in a computer CD drive. If you save your media files (.mp3, .wav, .wma) as data files on a CD, then a standalone CD player cannot play those files, but your computer CD drive should be able to do so just fine. The link below might help explain: http://www.techsupportalert.com/how_to_work_with_audio_cd_cda_files.htm Hope this helps. Have a great day. Regards, -Phil
  3. Nightowl: Thanks for writing back and letting us know how you made out. I am glad that I was able to be of some assistance. Lots of folks have helped me over the years. It is really GREAT to solve an annoying computer issue. Have a great day. Regards, -Phil
  4. Your problem could be related to the latest Windows Updates, issued a week or so ago. You should manually check for further Windows updates to see if there are any. If not, then you should Google Windows Update and font changes. You will get some hits, for example: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_vista-windows_update/kb3013455-ms15-010-causes-font-corruption/8640d38d-19bd-46b6-9af0-6213c05107d3 Hope this helps. Have a great day. Regards, -Phil

    AOMEI Backupper 2.5

    You're welcome, Rosika. I didn't mention that I recently transferred applications and data from a friend's old computer to her new computer (different makes and models) using an Easeus product, called "PC-Trans." I had never used it before. http://www.easeus.com/free-pc-transfer-software/ I used the network transfer, but my network is not that fast and there was 24 GB to move, which took about 28 hours. I would recommend the image option, if you are using that software. Not all applications migrated successfully, particularly those few that are heavily copy-protected and those that are non-standard apps. I was very impressed (I was using the Pro version) because most apps and all data transferred painlessly and I will use the product again, so that is another option. So far as I know, Wise doesn't market a similar product, so hopefully I have not violated Forum rules in mentioning a software app by name produced by another company. Hope this helps. Have a great day. Regards, -Phil

    AOMEI Backupper 2.5

    I have never heard of that software. For my friends, I recommend Easeus ToDo Backup Free (or paid). I am not aware of backup imaging software that can successfully restore (and be bootable) to dissimilar hardware for the simple reason that the new hardware will have different drivers than those on the source computer. There are migration programs that state that they can recover to dissimilar hardware but I doubt that they are free. Hope this helps. Just my two cents. Have a great day. Regards, -Phil

    Remove the mark

    The yellow mark indicates that the computer is unable to establish a wireless internet connection. You will need to set up a wireless connection via the Network and Sharing Centre (right click the icon), if you have not already done so. If you have set up a wireless network, then something is not working and you will need to troubleshoot the issue. There is troubleshooter in the Network and Sharing Centre. Hope this helps. Have a great day. Regards, -Phil

    First thing I would do is download the file "mbam_clean ..." from the Malwarebytes site and do a complete removal of MBAM. Then reinstall MBAM and see if the issue persists. If the problem is not solved, I would recommend surfing to the Malwarebytes site (malwarebytes.org) and posting the requested initial logs for an expert to assist you in the "Malware Removal" forum. The logs are necessary for their malware removal experts to determine if the computer is infected. This will eliminate the possibility that a virus or malware has compromised Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. If the computer is not infected, you can contact their Tech Support or you can post in the "Anti-Malware Help" forum on their site. There a lots of experienced and helpful people there. Hope this helps. Have a great day. Regards, -Phil

    Unwanted Cleaning by Wise Care 365 Pro

    Not sure - don't know. I am running Windows 7. Sorry. Have a great day. Regards, -Phil

    Unwanted Cleaning by Wise Care 365 Pro

    I concur with you that the default PC Checkup does not seem to be able to be configured to exclude certain items from cleaning, which is possible in other parts of the program. I dislike, and seldom run it, as a result. I think the programmers should permit users to configure what PC Checkup cleans and does not clean. I always want to keep my "Run" items and my "Recent Documents." CCleaner does permit items to be excluded. Just my two cents. Merry Christmas. Regards, -Phil

    Chrome cache not cleaned

    This thread from the CCleaner Forum might explain the issue. Apparently Google Chrome stores its history and stuff in "the cloud", not on the local computer. http://forum.piriform.com/?showtopic=40285 Hope this helps. Have a great day. Regards, -Phil

    I suspect that possibly your CMOS battery has failed. They are usually only good for about five years. If you haven't replaced your CMOS battery in a few years, I would try that first. Then go into the BIOS and restore the correct data and system configuration data. Hope this helps. Have a great day. Regards, -Phil
  13. Since Wise Program Installer cannot do what the original poster (OP) wants, I guess it might be permissible, under Forum Rules, to mention to the OP that Revo Uninstaller Pro will monitor installs and reverse all changes made by a monitored install during an uninstall by Revo. Have a great day. Regards, -Phil
