Digital Survival - system tray en FAQs: Protecting the health of your computer <div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even" property="content:encoded"><p><strong>Why does my computer slow down sometimes?</strong></p> <p>The most likely reason is that there are too many applications and programmes running at the same time. Usually closing down a few applications will speed things up. You may have unseen programmes, such as anti-virus software, running in the background. Check your system tray (in Windows, this is in the lower left-hand corner) to see if you have any programmes running in the background. A slow computer may also be infected with a computer virus.</p> <p><strong>Why does my computer screen go off while I'm working?</strong></p> <p>This is more likely to happen on a laptop but is still possible on a desktop computer. It's largely due to your energy-saving settings. Change your 'System standby' setting, under 'Power options' in the Windows Control Panel, to 'Never' if this is a problem.</p> </div></div></div><div class="field field-name-field-tags field-type-taxonomy-term-reference field-label-above"><div class="field-label">Tags:&nbsp;</div><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><a href="/taxonomy/term/26" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">infected</a></div><div class="field-item odd"><a href="/taxonomy/term/27" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">screen</a></div><div class="field-item even"><a href="/taxonomy/term/25" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">system tray</a></div></div></div> Tue, 01 Feb 2011 16:40:38 +0000 katie 5 at
