UCanFixIt got a reaction from Linkin in What should I do if my computer has a virus?
Thanks for all those helpful suggestions regarding malware detection, identification and removal. As you stated, they may work or they may not (depending on the severity of the infection). However, the one thing that is the most difficult to deal with is the remnants of the damge left behind "after" the malware is removed. Sometimes, the damage is so severe, it can take many days to uncover and fix all the damage (if that is even possible). With that said, my advice is to create a periodic system image to avoid the need to do a clean install just in case the malware and resulting damage cannot be totally removed/repaired. From my experience, more often than not, the malware removal is the easy part but it may take quite a bit of time to fix all the damage it left behind.

Just to remove all doubts, reset your previous problem to its default setting.
Open notepad, copy the following lines into it, save the file as MSIEinstances.reg, double click it and add it to your registry:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main] "TabProcGrowth"=dword:00000001 Then check if MSIE 8 works.
Try also rebooting your pc.
If this doesn't solve the problem, you can re-use MSIEinstances.reg, modifying 1 to 0.
Keep us informed.
UCanFixIt reacted to Linkin in Speed up Windows 8 Boot Time
Boot time of Windows 8 has been significantly improved as hybrid boot is enabled.
However, sometimes Windows 8 PC may boot slowly due to various reasons. Let me show you how to detect and fix boot problems and speed up Windows 8 booting process.
Disable Unwanted Startup Programs
As soon as you install a software, it may acquire permission to startup automatically when the PC is turned on. Therefore, it is important to look at those programs and disable them.
Go to Task Manager. Under Startup tab, there will be a list of programs that will be executed on startup. There will be the magnitude of the impact caused by them. It is necessary to disable startup programs that are not necessary. You can begin these programs manually later if it is necessary. Or you can do all these with Wise Care 365, there is a function called ‘Startup Manager’ in ‘System Tuneup’, all the programs and services that can run on startup are listed there, you can manage all of them with several clicks.
Clean up your Startup Folder to Speed up Booting
Browse to C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup. This folder contains all the files that are executed on startup. Delete all the unnecessary files.
Sometimes the uninstalled program shortcuts also reside in that folder, slowing down the process.
Use Event Viewer to Find and Fix Boot Issues
Browse or search for view event logs settings.
Then browse to Applications and Services Logs > Microsoft > Windows > Diagnostics Performance. Then view the current boot time and errors to fix.
Stop Unnecessary Services to Speed up Booting
Go to Run (WIN+R) and type in msconfig. Now in the new window, under services tab, you can disable all the unwanted services. This will decrease the boot time of your PC. Like I said above, you can also disable/enable these services on startup with Wise Care 365.
Disable Windows Search Indexing at Startup
Type in services.msc and search for Windows search. Under properties, change Startup type to disabled. This prevents the search indexing on Windows startup, and thus reduces the boot time. Search Indexing will be done on demand while working.
Disable Unwanted Animations
Windows 8 comes with several inbuilt animations. These animations will slow down the boot time in some computers. So it is advised to disable the startup Windows animations.
Type in SystemPropertiesAdvanced in Run, the System properties will open up.
Under Advanced click on Performance settings. Select Adjust for Best Performance or manually disable all the unwanted animations.
Turn on Fast Startup
Go to Control panel and click power option. Select “Choose what the power buttons do”.
Now, turn on Turn on Fast Startup feature.
This option will be enabled by default, if not enable it. It is the most important feature to speed up boot time.
1. Scan for any viruses
2. Always update to the newer version of the Operating System
3. Uninstall the Software completely, ensure that it does not leave any files, and use Cleaner.
4. Use Clutter free desktop.
5. Avoid themes and unnecessary gadgets.

UCanFixIt reacted to xilolee in Feature requests/Suggestions: Wise Registry Cleaner missing features
I would like to see some new features of WRC:
1) Regarding the installed version of WRC (scilicet the uninstaller version): DON'T REMOVE c:\users\user-name\appdata\roaming\wise registry cleaner\backup folder and the files in it.
2) POSSIBILITY to select/tick/tap/check all found problems in a section and ignore them in one click.
Better: select part of the entries to ignore and ignore them in one click.
3) POSSIBILITY to ignore all sections in the custom area (at the present we need to select at least one section)
4) Command line parameter to defragment the Windows registry ONLY.

Since you stated that you have "tried everything", that leaves little to suggest without having to hear "I tried that already." From this point, you have two choices IMHO. Either tell us everything you have tried (so we can eliminate redundant suggestions) or specifically identify the make/model of the device you are trying to get working. We await for your additional information.
