  1. Problem with internet speed on one computer.

    I don't see anything malicious there and I don't see anything related to your problems. If all other devices are connected to the same router it must be something about your machine. If it was me I'd replace NIC card since they're cheap.
  2. upgrade

    I'd try one more time.
  3. Spam to a stranger from my Number

    Phone numbers are easy ti fake.
  4. Need Dual Monitors for Job Now! Please Help!

    I'm not a hardware guy but power supply could be an issue. Hopefully someone else will chime in with better knowledge.
  5. Dell with Windows Vista

    It looks to me like some hardware problem. I'd start with testing hard drive. Run hard drive diagnostics: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic28744.html/page__view__findpost__p__160520 Make sure, you select tool, which is appropriate for the brand of your hard drive. Depending on the program, it'll create bootable floppy, or bootable CD. If downloaded file is of .iso type, use ImgBurn: http://www.imgburn.com/ to burn .iso file to a CD (select "Write image file to disc" option), and make the CD bootable. For Toshiba hard drives, see here: http://storage.toshiba.com/storage-services-support/warranty-support/software-utilities#diagnostic Note : If you do not know how to set your computer to boot from CD follow the steps here

    Happy Birthday my friend!!
  13. Please, observe following rules: Read all of my instructions very carefully. Your mistakes during cleaning process may have very serious consequences, like unbootable computer. If you're stuck, or you're not sure about certain step, always ask before doing anything else. Please refrain from running any tools, fixes or applying any changes to your computer other than those I suggest. Never run more than one scan at a time. Keep updating me regarding your computer behavior, good, or bad. The cleaning process, once started, has to be completed. Even if your computer appears to act better, it may still be infected. Once the computer is totally clean, I'll certainly let you know. If you leave the topic without explanation in the middle of a cleaning process, you may not be eligible to receive any more help in malware removal forum. I close my topics if you have not replied in 5 days. If you need more time, simply let me know. If I closed your topic and you need it to be reopened, simply PM me. ============================================ I don't see much there. Are you having any particular issues there?
  14. Need Dual Monitors for Job Now! Please Help!

    Basically speaking, for multiple monitors you need a card with so many ports. If you need 4 monitors then your card has to have 4 ports. Examples: http://multimonitorcomputer.com/top-4-best-videocard-for-multiple-monitor-computers.php if you want to spend few more bucks to help you with multiple taskbars etc I strongly suggest Display Fusion: https://www.displayfusion.com/
