    Thanks for giving your ideas here. The other issue is that every time a problem appears with a laptop or computer motherboard, people today should not go ahead and take risk of repairing it themselves because if it is not done correctly it can lead to permanent damage to the full laptop. It is usually safe to approach your dealer of the laptop for that repair of that motherboard. They have got technicians that have an experience in dealing with notebook computer motherboard complications and can get the right prognosis and conduct repairs.

    Your site directs me to ‘Add Remove Programs’ to remove Yandex Toolbar, but there is no such entry. “MicrosoftFixit.IEAddon.WER.Run.exe” shows many tool bars installed and running and they are not available in any of the usual Add-ons management areas
