ILLEGAL OPERATIONS?! The first thing you'll need in order to fix "Illegal Operations," (AKA; General Protection Faults, or GPFs) is to know what the heck they are, Right? All of us Windows veterans have seen this error message popup on occasion; "This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down." I'll never forget the first time I saw that on MY Win 98 machine ... I thought the guys with the sunglasses and wires hanging out their ears would be at my door at any minute, Bummer right? We've ALL gone through this at one time or another. XP users don't experience this type of message ... No, we get a more polite version; "Windows Explorer has encountered a problem and must now close, we are sorry for any inconvenience." Though rare for XP users, the reasons are basically the same for all versions of Microsoft Operating Systems. These are the GPFs or General Protection errors, (Program Error Messages are the same as GPFs). Nine times out of ten, you'll need to reboot your puter ... Sometimes at the tower, (yikes)! If you're running Windows 95, 98, ME, 2K or XP, (No-one's exempt) then you should visit this informative website, to glean the knowledge necessary on how to deal with such problems. NOTE: Mostly a shareware site. However, there's some pretty cool Freeware available there as well.

AVG Rescue CD: A Powerful Toolset, For Rescue & Repair of Infected Machines.
(For Windows XP, Vista and 7)
  Every PC user has to deal with malware at some point. Quality security programs are the first line of defense. And they can block or remove nearly any infection. But no system is perfect. Occasionally, a really bad piece of malware comes along. It could wreak serious havoc. If it's bad enough, even starting the computer might be impossible. If you can't start your computer, how do you fix it? Most people will never run into something like this ... But It DOES Happen! Fixing it requires a different kind of tool. That's what 'AVG Rescue CD' is for. It contains various antivirus and anti-spyware tools. You can burn it to a CD. Or you can install it on a thumb drive. Then, instead of booting into Windows, you boot from your CD or thumb drive. The anti-malware tools can be used to recover your system. You can clean out everything, and then get back to Windows. (NOTE: This is NOT a program you run from within Windows ... It must be burned to a CD, or installed on a USB drive. You can then boot your computer into the program. For detailed instructions on how to use it, visit this AVG page.)
You can download the AVG Rescue CD from the download section for free. There are two files you can download - ISO file and RAR/ZIP archive. The ISO image can be used to burn a CD or DVD. The archive can be extracted on USB drive.

Since a lot of folks seem to be experiencing the dreaded 'BSOD,' (as of late) I thought I'd address the issue ...

 WAIT! Don't Smash It -- FIX It!THE DREADED 'BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH!' (BSOD) WHAT WILL YOU DO? (NO ONE Hears Your Screams!)

~ How To Fix Your “Crashing” Computer ~
  We've come to accept it as a fact of modern life: a computer WILL eventually CRASH ... PCs crash for a variety of reasons, from faulty drivers to conflicting software, from memory problems, to dust-bunnys clogging up the machine. Try as we might to avoid a crash, sometimes it's just as important to know what to do, after the crash occurs.
Crashes come in all shapes and sizes. There's the freeze, of course, where everything just stops. And then there's everyone's favorite, the infamous “Blue Screen of Death,” (or “BSOD”) where the screen goes blue and displays all sorts of mysterious instructions. Once you see that ... You Just KNOW You're Screwed.

  The first and most obvious response to a system crash, is to restart your computer. If your machine manages to reboot successfully, that's a positive sign. However, the crash may have left behind errors within the PC's registry.

  The registry provides directions for every program on a Windows computer, telling your PC what to do next. If there's an error in your registry, your computer might not know what to do. It's probably not a great idea to try fixing the registry on your own. There is software out there, that can do this for you ... Do a search for a free registry cleaner ... Personally, I use
Ccleaner, by Piriform -- This tool dumps all of those 'pesky' temp files, while cleaning your system and registry, (You can find tutorials for this cool utility, HERE and on YouTube HERE - 7min-33sec).

  If your computer won't restart, your next move is to try rebooting your machine in Safe Mode. Sometimes faulty drivers are the root cause of a crash -- rebooting the computer in Safe Mode disables most of those drivers, in the hopes of getting the machine restarted, and perhaps recovering any lost data.

  To reboot in Safe Mode, rapidly continue to press the F8 key while restarting -- the Windows Advanced Options menu appears, providing choices in the Boot menu. Newer versions of Windows provide several Safe Mode options to choose from -- use the arrow keys (not your mouse) to make a selection, and press Enter.

  Bear in mind that when the computer restarts in Safe Mode, it will look, feel and function differently than you're used to -- for example, it will display using fewer colors in a smaller screen resolution, and certain components won't work, because the system is started in such a way, that only the programs needed for the system to function for diagnosic purposes are loaded. In other words, you won't want to use the computer in Safe Mode for very long. Once you've successfully restarted in Safe Mode, work quickly to restore and back up any lost data, make any changes to your system setup and then reboot again normally.

'Event Viewer' Applet While in Safe Mode, you can attempt to determine the cause of the crash to either disable or uninstall the culprit and avoid future trouble. Windows keeps track of the programs you're using in the Event Viewer -- this is a good place to look for the cause of a crash. Click Start, go to the Control Panel, and click on Administrative Tools. From there, double-click on the Event Viewer and choose the System section. Error symbols will be marked with a red exclamation point, suggesting which program(s) may have caused the crash.

'Device Manager' Applet Another guilty party, could be the drivers that tell your computer's devices how to operate. To check your drivers for errors, click Start and then Control Panel. Click System and then the Hardware Tab. Select the Device Manager to bring up a full list of your drivers; right-click on any one and select Properties. Errors will appear with a yellow "X" or an exclamation point, helping identify the cause of the crash.

  If crashes continue to occur, your computer may have problems that require more than a “do-it-yourself” diagnosis and repair. In that case, I Recommend
Contacting Me, and tell me what the “STOP ERROR” located towards the bottom of the “BSOD” Screen Looks Like, (For Example) Look For an Error Message similar to the one below:
   STOP: 0x0000008E (0xC0000005, 0x804E5094, 0xAA09108AC, 0x00000000)   ...
Write in down, (carefully) then contact me, and I'll do what I can to help you out, OK?
          Speed Up Your Puter! Easy Steps To Improve YOUR PC's Performance! Speed It Up!
 
Unless your computer is fresh out of the box, it's probably not running as fast as it used to. Our PCs fill up with all sorts of good stuff -- documents, music, videos, programs, games, downloads -- and bad stuff like viruses and spyware, as well. Over time they CAN get 'bogged down.' Much like oil changes for your car, a little periodic 'preventive' maintenance can actually help extend your computer's lifespan. And in this tight economy, it's smart to take a few simple easy steps, to help keep your PC running like new, (instead of going out, and having to buy a new one).

  I've collected a series of tips and tricks to help your computer run more smoothly and broaden its useful life. They are easy enough that anyone, even a novice, can run them -- but they can all help bring that “new car smell” back to your computer.

“DISK CHECK” YOUR MACHINE: Computers with Windows XP and newer operating systems come with several simple utilities to check, clean and de-clutter your hard drive. Doing so, will free it up to access your programs and files more quickly. 'Disk Check' identifies and removes hard disk errors caused by crashes or power failures. It's a good idea to run it every few months, to make sure the drive itself is functioning properly.  
Check Disk Utility
    • Click on My Computer
    • Right click on C drive
    • Choose “Properties”
    • Select the Tools Tab
    • Click the "Check Now" button under "Error Checking"
    • Check all the boxes
    • Click Start

 “DISK CLEANUP” YOUR MACHINE: Disk Cleanup removes temporary files and unnecessary detritus from your hard drive, (HDD) freeing up space on the disk. For example: when you're browsing the Web, your computer collects thousands of temporary files to help Websites load more quickly. But over time, these files create clutter, so it's a good idea to clean them out. I recommend running this utility around once a month ...Disk Cleanup Utility Bare minimum, every two months.

 

• Click on My Computer
• Right click on your C drive
• Choose “Properties”
• Select Disk Cleanup





NEXT ...

 “DEFRAG” YOUR MACHINE:
The Disk Defragmenter improves hard drive performance and speed by piecing together parts of files that have been broken apart. As you use your computer, files are constantly added, changed and removed. Over time, these files and folders are broken into chunks of data, so when you want to access the file your hard disk has to work harder and look in more places to find all of its contents. This is known as fragmentation. The more full your hard drive becomes, the more likely it is your files will be fragmented. The Defragmenter pieces those chunks of data back together, so your hard drive can load them more quickly. I recommend using this utility at least once a month -- and it's best to run when you're finished using the computer for the day, as it can often take well over an hour to complete.
Disk 'Defragmentation' Utility

 

• Click on My Computer
• Right click on your C drive
• Select Properties
• Choose the Tools tab
• Click "Defragment Now" button under "Defragmentation"

 

“AUTOMATIC UPDATES” FOR YOUR MACHINE: Windows XP, (and higher) can automatically check to see if it needs to be updated. Microsoft often supplies patches, updates and security fixes for Windows (as well as Office and other Microsoft programs) that should always be installed to keep your PC up-to-date. The beauty of Automatic Updates is, that it checks with Microsoft on its own, and lets you know when you need to do something. So just make sure that Automatic Updates are on:

Microsoft Security - 'Automatic Updates' Applet 

 

• Click Start, and then click Control Panel
• Click Automatic Updates
• Choose Automatic (recommended)

 

 

 'Recycle Bin'

EMPTY THE “RECYCLE BIN” ...
Though it sounds counterintuitive, dropping an unwanted file in the Recycle Bin, doesn't actually remove it from your hard drive. To prevent accidental deletion, a file can remain in the Recycle Bin and continue to take up space. Periodically emptying the Recycle Bin, helps free space for the files you want to keep. 

 
  If running all these individual fixes doesn't sound like your cup of tea, there's software available, that can 'optimize' your computer in a few simple steps -- Cleaning our your hard drive, speeding startup and shutdown, and repairing errors. (See the list at the top of this webpage, for; “PROGRAMS That I've INSTALLED on MY Machines. 

Finally, perhaps the most common causes of computer sluggishness are viruses and spyware. You may already have computer security software installed on your computer, but with so many new threats created every day, it must have updated definition files to be of any use. (Again, See Above, For Good FREE Anti-virus Software That's Available ...)

If you don't already have security software on your PC, make sure you install it and KEEP IT UPDATED! 

Extending Your Computer's Lifespan: The average lifespan of a desktop computer varies and is usualy only two-five years. How can you make it last longer? Easy tips like clearing/vacuuming dust, from around the computer and its vent holes and keeping an eye on its running temperature can help a lot ... Find out more ...

PC Security IS Important!10 Ways to Protect Your Privacy Online: As you read e-mail, check your stock portfolio, post a status update on Facebook and consult whether sites to keep an eye on that storm headed your way, you leave invisible tracks on the Internet. How can you protect your personal information from being misused? The Answer Is Simple ... Be Smart!

Top 10 Passwords You Should NEVER Use: If you chose an easy-to-remember password, such as your user name or even the word "password," I advise you to change it right away. Easily guessed passwords can compromise your personal identity, privacy and financial accounts.
