How to repair computer errors

March 18, 2006 11:36 AM EST | General | Email to Friend

When you have a computer error it can be very frustrating, especially if the error prevents software from running or your computer even starting. If you add the internet to the mix, your computer will get viruses, spyware, adware and other malicious software that will cause errors on your machine.
All errors can be fixed by the average person though; you just need to know what you are trying to remove and the right software to remove it. This can be a daunting task to someone not so tech savvy, so I will take you through the different threats that exist on the internet and your PC.

Spyware is perhaps one of the most dangerous types of PC infections to date. If a computer gets infected with spyware, a person could keep track of your every keystroke, email, website visit and other confidential conversations you might partake in. So if you do things like online banking, a person could use the spyware to find out all of your information and do what illegal acts they want to with it.

The next internet threat is adware and isn’t as dangerous as spyware, but can be very annoying. I despise any company or individual who develops adware because it is intrusive and no better then spam. Adware is advertisement software that usually attaches to free software that most people download. And even if you are connected to the internet or not adware can show advertisements. It will also do this even if the original download is not running. Adware ads come in many different forms, like pop-ups, URL redirection and many other things that anyone would find annoying.

Most people use Windows, if you don’t then you can skip this part. If you do, then you should know that Windows uses registry files and these registry files could be causing errors for you. When registry files have invalid entries this can cause error messages and crashes. Also if you remove orphaned references in your registry you can increase your PC’s performance and stability.

Viruses are the main reason people have computer errors, especially if you are connected to the internet. If the computer does not have any internet connection, then a virus could have only gotten on their by someone inserting data that has been infected by a malicious virus.

A Trojan virus is the most common type of virus and you should know how it works to avoid it. A Trojan virus hides in a program that appears as something you may think is safe, but hidden inside is usually something harmful, like a virus. Trojans are so common because you may download a game or even a picture thinking it is harmless, but once you run the file, the virus gets let loose.

If this is the first time you have ever tried to remove these errors from your computer, then you can expect to find a lot. That is why I recommend you get a good computer error removal program and use it at least once a month.

With this knowledge of all the different types of computer errors, you should be able properly diagnose what is causing the errors on your computer and fix it. Do not be discouraged if all errors aren’t fixed right away, as it could be all of the above. If you do have every type of error, then you would have to take removal steps for each type of error.
