Tune Up Utilities - reinstalling programme

by Frenches / April 16, 2013 4:11 PM PDT

I have a toshiba laptop, running windows 7 and I installed Tune Up Utilities 2012 to speed up the computer. It has worked brilliantly, but in setting up I uninstalled my HP printer. I want to reinstall the HP printer and keep it installed. When I manually reinstall, it occasionally works but usually doesn't. Now, I can't connect to the printer at all. The connection is by wi-fi not hardwire. How can I get the connection to the printer again and keep it connected please?

I agree

I agree with the general sentiment that you would be far better off without any kind of "tune up" program installed. I would not be the least bit surprised if that has something to do with your problems regarding the printer not working.

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?
