Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I'm a computer novice, and I've gotten my laptop all screwed up!!!!!!.I purchased live help from a Gateway tech, but my dial-up is so slow that I was unable to download his recommended fix. I also purchased an error-fix program, which seems to have messed it up even more. I can't get my printer to work any more, and I keep getting a message that Windows has stopped some of my auto-start programs, but I can't find out what to do about that. HELP!!!!!!!!
