Two problems really.First, when I start up my computer within a couple minutes I get a message on screen that reads that there is a problem in the save file. and reads KERNEL.32DLL.How do I fix that? And second when I try to e-mail my resume from the desk top or Microsoft word Process through attachtments the other party says its garbelled.Any thoughts?
Thank you

About Word, about Parasites.

There's barely enough detail in your post, but let's try...

1. Word.

A. If Word complains about memory, corrupts a document, try this cure-all. Find and delete the NORMAL.DOT files on the hard disk. When Word runs, it will make a new one.

B. Save and send the document in RTF rather than DOC.


That may be a TYPOGRAPHICAL error or some virus or parasite has found its way onto your system.

Use the tools I note at to find and remove all parasites. CWSHREDDER has moved, but you can find it with

Best of luck,

Thank you very much. I am not well versed on the computer. It's over my head. I don't know how to find and delete NORMAL.DOT. But thank you anyway

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
