I am not sure what you mean by "operating system"..Have Windows XP..Booted by Bright House System which I think is Cable (it was really fast and they tell me that our computer is still getting their full speed)..Internet Explorer..Aol..
The Compac Owner 0 Owner started showing up about two weeks ago..at first it was combined with an Aol Startup Message...but now is solo...Have been having slow and hangups for about a month now.
Hi..I am back finally. Followed these steps: 1. Found CCleaner icon and Ran Cleaner..Clicked on Registry and let it do its thing..Clicked on TOOLS and have not uninstalled anY programs because I really don't recognize any of them..My daughter and wife have promised to go over them with me. I did note that many of the programs did not give option to uninstall so figure I should leave them alone...Am I correct. I would like clarification on that subject. ..Clicked on STARTUP and note that only two programs are showing..Yes-HKCU:RUN and HKLM:RUN....These two were the only two in Black and rest were barely seen. I knew sometime ago a friend had put AOL not to run at startup...Are the two above the only ones needed or should they be removed?
I am going ahead and hitting ACCEPT even though I just saw the "Campac Owner O Active" page just come up as my Aol was frozen as I tried to get on. I have not been on the computer except for this issue so don't really know if there is a difference. My wife did notice the Hard Drive was roaring from time to time even when no one was on line so that may be an issue. It has been quiet since I have been on line..
I will appreciate answers to questions above and any other suggestions..Thank you..Richard ..
