Sometimes (and I was getting this before) IE puts a bar at the top of the window (for instance on the Geeks to Go home page) that says: "Your security settings do not allow websites to use ActiveX controls installed on your computer.
I advise you to leave the settiing, it can be altered, to set it so that bar does not display, but some websites, especially those of more doubtful nature, (not that I am suggesting you deliberately vist those) will install malicious activex components on your computer.page may not display correctly. What should I do about that?
Can I uninstall Internet Information Services (IIS) from the Windows Components in Add/Remove Programs? Is it necessary for the efficient operation of IE?
Is the computer a stand alone computer, connected to the internet through your modem/router etc or is it part of a network of computers and you connect to your Officer server. (I did not see evidence of that on Pitstop)
If the first. then yes, if the second, I would have to refer you as that it is not my area of knowledge
Do you recommend that I remove all the "utilities/tweaking" software I have installed?
That is really a matter for you I am not evading the question, but all I can reaaly say is that we do not advise the use of any program that involves any automated registry cleaning aspect. If you look on the last line of my signature notes, you will see a brief explanation with a clickable link - for ease it is herehttp://miekiemoes.bl...weaking_13.html
I would say, do NOT use them. Therefore if you are not going to use them, you may as well uninstall them.
Use the programs OWN uninstaller if it has one, if not use Windows add/remove programs.
If you do uninstall them after completion, run TFC Cleaner again.
Then check the defrag requirement.
Always run the disk cleanup/TFC etc before the defrag check on analysis and defrag if necessary. It is no use defragging and then running a cleanup program.
In respect of the general performance go start, run and type msconfig
When System configuration utility opens, click the StartUp tab.
In respect of the entries which are checked with a green tick - send a screenshot please.
When you have that on the desktop, press the print screen key, then go start, programs, accessories, paint and when paint opens on the edit tab, click paste. The image will appear. You may then select just the window of the system config and then
edit, copy. File Tab New, edit and paste.
File tab, save as and select jpeg file typre, Bitmap to which paint defaults is too large.
Then on your reply - use full editor and click to attach files.
