hi, i got this computer to work again its a gateway

192 mbs ram intel celeron processor
564 mhz

windows xp sp2

heres the thing when i try to run cleanup it stops and the window closes this also happens with pcpitstop, and gateway.com when i ask it to look at my config.

ive ran all the microsoft updates i think
ive also tried tuning off firewalls and antivirus, and closed all progams running in background. these have worked on this computer before.

i ran into a prob with hard drive and had to reinstall windows wiped everything to get it done thats when these stopped working

MS recommends 256 Mgs of ram for XP..they say it will run on 128 but its at sloth speed...(think slightly faster than snail)...add more RAM or be prepared for a lot of grief...

even with 512 Mgs of RAM it will never be fast because of the slow processor...it will be OK for surfing the net...just don't try running anything intensive...

your time can be set in the bios...it needs to be reasonably accurate....
you may also have to change the CMOS battery...it's like a watch battery...its on the motherboard...costs 2 or 3 bucks.....

you also set the date in the bios....
you can click on start...run..... type in services.msc...scroll down to bottom...double click on ...windows time..
in the drop down window click on ..automatic....then start the service...close down the services window ...you may have to reboot for the change to take affect..
if the time does not stay current then I would change the Cmos battery...

what are you using PCpitstop for ....

pc pitstop's dill comes up when im at gateway's site. i ask gateway to look at current setup. its just a place that shuts down the window the same way as cleanup program thought it my be caused by the same thing is all. all i really would like to do is have a very ez way to clean all temp files. it best for ppl who dont have alot of pc background to have one click fix

all you need is ccleaner...run the cleaner and ALL the garbage is gone ...one or two clicks and about 20 seconds and its done...get THE SLIM VERSION...DON'T PLAY WITH THE OTHER TOOLS
