Grouping and date problems [urgent!]

Question: Grouping and date problems [urgent!]

I have an agents worksheet and sold worksheet. The sold worksheet has a list of sold properties in it including the agent code, selling price and sale date.

My problem is that i need to display commission by agent for a specified time period. I placed the commission at the end of the sold properties list. I have no problem with calculating the commission.

I can't figure out how i can display commission by agent for a specified time period. I created a criteria range to be used for advanced filter but how am i going to so-called 'link' my agent code and sale date from my sold worksheet with the agent details in my agent worksheet to be displayed in another worksheet to be filtered?

Or am i going about it all wrong? Is there an easier way to get all this done?

Sold Worksheet
PropertyCode..Branch..SaleDate..AgentCode..SellingPrice..Commission
.......1.............East......1-1-03..........5...........430,000........7,985

Agents Worksheet
AgentCode...FirstName...LastName...Branch
.....5.............Dany..........Lim...........East

And lastly i have a criteria range for my startDate but i'm unsure of how to end up getting commission by agent for a specified date. I'm guessing it requires some sort of grouping but i don't know how to. Please Help!

Help! This should be easy but I can't get it to work.

I have a report that must group by Trip# and sort by ascending activity date all of the various activities that took place on multiple days of the trip.
Further, the trip with the earliest date must come first regardless of the Trip#.
I've accomplished getting the earliest starting date trip first and grouping its detail with a unique string made up of the earliest date of each trip formatted to YYYYMMDD+Trip#. This prints a trip total and works fine.

But the daily activity for the trip is out of date sequence.
Adding a Date field to the 'Sorting and Grouping' insists on breaking on and printing a sub-total for each of the trips activity dates.
Without the sorting & grouping by date the trip records are out of sequence even though the data source query is sorted ascending by activity date.

(see attachments that show the above)

The only solution I can think of is to create a sub-report sorted by activity date.

Does anyone have any better ideas?

I created a pivot table using a sum of values under the date and line by line for each customer (it is an order book), once I had this set up it gives customer with a total value under the dates on which they are forecast. I then clicked on the date and told it to group by month and year, this worked fine and I had a total per month for each customer.Once I sent this out for data to be checked and dates amended I tried to update the table so as to use the updated dates, the grouping element came off so I had individual dates across the top again, no problem, click on date and group again - got the message "Cannot Group this selection". o matter what I do it will not group, even starting the pivot tabel from scratch and it comes up with the same error.I can't understand why it works one minute and happily groups then decides it can't do it, anybody any ideas at all please?Craig

I'm hoping someone can help me with this....

I am grouping by week. The issue that I have is the grouping date that I am using does not always have activity for every day.

Example weeks go Sunday to Saturday
for week Sept 12 thru 18th there is only data for the date of spet 15th. So in my grouping header it used the 15th as the start date.

I want to be able to list start date and end date for each week.
It would look like this.

9-12-2010 to 9-18-2010
9-19-2010 to 9-25-2010

I am having trouble with sorting my file list whose file names begin with 6 digits representing the date. (ex: 011809 which is Jan 18 2009). I am running Vista Home Premium and additionally have gone in to the registry and added a New DWORD Value, NoStrCmpLogical with a value of 1. This has resulted in everything beginning with 1's, 2's etc. being grouped but not using the entire 6 digits.

I am working on Exhibits for a Special Ed complaint that must be filed yesterday! However, with over 180 Exhibits and not being able to sort them chronologically, I am going in circles.

I am not sure if the value needs to be changed or if their is a different way to go about this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:Urgent.. Need help with sorting files by date.

Hello Sugsmissy, and welcome to Vista Forums.

You can use OPTION ONE in the tutorial below to add a column that may have a date option listed that can sort the files the way you are want. Afterwards use OPTION FOUR to try the different sort orders for it for one that may work.

Column - Customize

Hope this may help some,

The CEO of the company called me in his office today saying that ALL of his files show a modified date of January 23rd at 6am. I checked event viewer and his computer wasn't even on at this time. The weird thing is this happened with his desktop last year when it was powered off as well. I have no answer for him as well as no explanation. He is irritated either way though.

Any ideas as to what would cause the file modification date to change although the computer WAS NOT powered on?

Hey everyone,

I'm having problems with Access, where I have a date/time field, which stores a month and a year (successfully), but still automatically assigns the first date of the month in question.

I used the following input mask (00/0000;;_) for the date field, and so far I haven't had any troubles with putting in a month and year. So far so good. But when I complete the date and move on, Access changes it to a full date. e.g. 06/2010 --> 01/06/2010.

Now, I'm actually fine with this part, my only problem is that I don't want it to do this in forms (both datasheet and normal view) or reports.

I heard something about using a Format (http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/access/HP010990151033.aspx) to adjust the display, but I can't seem to get that to work. Is there any other way to tell Access how to display the date field, like what can be done in Excel?

This is rather urgent as I have a project due tomorrow and this problem (as well as others) have now been reached and I'd like to solve them as soon as possible.

Any help is appreciated, and I look forward to your responses.

Hello! We have recently aqquired several ThinkCentre A57 SFF computers, downgraded their OS to Windows XP and added the PCs to a Windows Server 2008 domain. Everything is going well except for the fact that each PC´s BIOS does not allow Windows to update the date and time it receives from the domain controller, as normal. Even in the BIOS screen I change the date and time, save settings, reboot and even before I enter Windows again, I go to the BIOS and the old time and date are there!!! This is a very urgent problem to solve, because the PCs are working in a pharmacy and all my user prints are coming out with the wrong time, date, etc  Maybe this is some simple BIOS option.. I am an Lenovo newbie, first PCs I ever bought from them! Any help is very appreciated. Thanks in advance, Ivo PereiraIT ConsultantPortugal

Question: VB6 date Problems

I'm currently writing a small piece of software for work that produces output to be used in another system, the problem I'm having is calculating a result from "ddmmyyyy"(date of birth as a string) to produce an age (again string output) as "YYMM".

Any ideas, so far I've got:

yy = DateDiff("yyyy", CDate(Left(DOB, 2) & "/" & Mid(DOB, 3, 2) & "/" & Right(DOB, 4)), Now)

mm = DateDiff("m", CDate(Left(DOB, 2) & "/" & Mid(DOB, 3, 2) & "/" & Right(DOB, 4)), Now)
yy = CInt(yy) * 12
answer = CInt(mm) - yy 'Is no. of months

Which gives a number of months, unfortunately it's returning -10!

Any ideas folks? Thanks.
 

Answer:VB6 date Problems

I pasted your code into a new VB project, entered my DOB in the formula and ran through it. The calculation for the number of years is the age that I will be on my next birthday -- not the age I was on my last birthday. Try subtracting 1 from the yy value after it is calculated.

hi,

On my frineds computer it has recently been afected by a virus but i dont know the virus name. He got rid of it but the homepage of IE is still being redirected to a different site then what it is supposed to go onto. I tried changing the homepage but it still would not work. And an even worse problem is I CANT BROWSE THE INTERNET!!! I type a a site in and all it does is go to Page Cannot Be Displayed. I upgraded a old crappy mcafee to a new 2003 Norton. It does not find any infected files. I vcannot run liveupdate cos when i press run liveupdate all it does is say liveupdate is running in the backround. I waited for hours and still it wont update itself. Anyway I really need the IE fixed.
 

Answer:urgent Problems With Ie

First, download LSPFix. Put it on a floppy to transfer it to the affected computer.
Once copied to the affected computer, open it and then click on the "Finish" button. That will repair any damage to the winsock file which is probably the cause of the "cannot browse" problem.

Once back online, download, install, immediately update and then run Spybot and/or AdAware. Read the help files to familiarize yourself with how they work. I recommend you use them both since each tends to find things the other misses. Let them clean up any spyware found.

Then, to be doubly sure, download and run CWShredder and run it (link to the download is near the bottom of the page).

I need URGENT help here.

I have been attempting to dual-boot Windows XP and Windows 7 on a mid-2004 HP Compaq laptop.
I booted into the Windows 7 setup, and used diskpart to shrink my XP partition. The commands I used were these:
list disk
select disk 1
list volume
select volume 1
list partition
select partition 1
shrink desired=25000

After the shrink desired=25000 command, it went straight back to the prompt. I thought that was a little strange, but I continued with setup. When I was prompted to select a drive to install to, there were none. I launched diskpart again and typed list disk. It said there were no disks to display. I rebooted the computer, and it booted into XP as usual. I was taken to the login screen, and I entered my password. I pressed enter, and got a BSOD.
There was no error string, which would usually be something like PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA or IRQL_LESS_OR_NOT_EQUAL. The system rebooted. I shut it down by pressing the power button while the BIOS screen was up. I started up the computer, and the BIOS beeped 3 times and printed out the message of my nightmare:

Fixed Disk Parameter Table or BIOS Error
System Halted

My only choice now was to press the power button to power off the machine, and it did.

Well. This really sucks, it seems like it should be an easy fix, but it's not.

Here goes: my friend is wanting to play a game with me, but it requires that his date and time settings be up to date (his time is messed up). He recently upgraded to XP SP2, from SP1, but the problem existed before the update, I think.

Answer:Vlookup date problems

Hi,One of the problems with looking up and matching dates is that Excel stores times in the same variable as the date. If some of your date values also contain times, there will not be a match.Two cells formatted as dd/mm/yy may show 10/Jan/10but one of them is midnight and the other is noon - you can't tell by looking at the date formatted cell.10/Jan/2010 at midnight is 40198.0010/Jan/2010 at noon is 40198.50Try formating your dates as numbers and see if there are any decimal values 'hidden' in the cells.If the values in the cells are not around 40000 (assuming recent dates), but still show as a date, then Excel hasn't recognized the cell as a date. So some cells are text that is in a date style, while others are numbers recognized by Excel as dates and showing as a date due to formatting. So again - no match.One way to handle the time issue is to compare the integer parts of the numbers only.Create a new column to the right of your dates, before the text and use a formula =int(A1), to ensure that you get only the integer (whole number) part. Do your lookup on this new column using =VLOOKUP(INT(A9),B!$A$2:$B$20,2,FALSE), so you compare the integer part of the date in cell A9 with the integer values in your new column.Regards

I'm currently using a VB program that retrieves information including a list of dates from a different program. It copies these dates to a formatted clipboard and then pastes them to excel.

You can do this manually or automatically, the odd thing is that while the manual process works properly the automatic process doesn't, with dates 1-12 it swaps months and days and above 12 it converts the date format to text. However double clicking on the cell then converts the text format to a date! I say this is odd because all the automatic process does is call exactly the same function as the manual process uses.

I realise this might not be amazingly clear but my main question is whether anyone knows of a bug in Excel that is causing this and if so is there a patch to fix it. I know there is a patch called Programmatic Text Export which seems similar to my problem but it doesn't fix it.

Any help appreciated!!

Put a 1 in any blank cell. Copy the cell. Select all cells that aren't working right. Hit Edit-Paste special and select the Multiply button and OK. You should get all numbers somewhere around 35000. These are serial dates. Now, WHILE CELLS ARE STILL SELECTED, format the cells to the desired date format.

For more about dates and times in Excel, see http://www.cpearson.com/excel/topic.htm

Let me know if you need more help with that.

Hello. I am looking to find a way to not have new IE windows be grouped next to each other on the bottom of the screen. For example, I have 1 IE window open, 2 excel file, and 1 word file, in that order left to right. Now if I open another IE window, the order changes to IE, new IE, excel, word (left to right) on the bottom. Is there a way to have it place a new window/program on the right side of any current open programs?

Answer:grouping of new IE windows

hi finnsbad, and welcome to sevenforums,

i think you are talking about icons being 'combined' on the 'taskbar'.

if you do not want this to happen, right-click on an empty bit of taskbar >> properties >> chose 'never combine'

Taskbar Button Grouping - Enable or Disable



unfortunately, the icons will still be grouped, and i do not know of a way to separate them, so that word will be in the middle of two ie icons, but at least you'll have two ie icons.

What i mean is when you have (for eg - 5 internet explorer browser windows open, it groups it all into one tab to click on) or when i'm talking to 5 people on MSN it groups all the conversations into one tab, i dont want it to do that. I want them all to have their single tab along the taskbar to click on just like Windows 2000 and 98 was able to do.

How can i go about preventing it from grouping?

Hi guys,

I am really hoping someone here may help as have not had much luck in another forum I joined. I am creating a 'dashboard' at work. The dashboard shows outstanding jobs on one work sheet and completed jobs on another and graphs and charts relating to these tables on a third spread sheet.

I am no expert in excel and received help on putting together VBA's for both the completed and outstanding work sheets. However, I have since had to make changes to both of these work sheet tables and now the VBA's no longer work. Although I wanted to make some slight changes to the VBA's anyway.

What I am hoping for on the 'outstanding' work sheet, is jobs to be grouped by status (which is a drop down select in column B) and preferably in the order that the drop down list provides. I then would like these groups (of which there are 7) to be displayed in 'status changed' date order (oldest to newest - uk date). The date itself can be inputted manually but if there is a way this could automatically change when the status is updated even better!! There is an 8th status which is 'completed' and when this is selected I would like the job name and area to move over to the 'completed' work sheet and be removed from 'outstanding'.

I would like the outstanding worksheet is also banded by groups based on 'area' drop down in column C and again in date order based on 'implemented' column I.

Answer:grouping files

Let me ask you this. Why not compress them into a Zip file. It reduces the file size for one.

You could also use a Yahoo briefcase account. It is free and they give you 30mb's of storage. You can upload to there and then the people who need to download them, can download them at their convenience.

Question: XP- Grouping Tasks

Im sure 99% of us are aware of the feature in XP to group the open tasks into one button in our task bar.

My question is:
Can I control when to group the tasks? i.e.- I currently have open four browser windows, two xls, and three notepad. None are grouping and I do have the feature turned on. Does XP wait until I have a certain amount open before grouping? I think I remember it grouping when having four of something open in the past. It seems to have a mind of its own it just groups when it feels like it.

Greetings to all,

I need your expert assistance urgently, please. I have a Packard Bell EasyNote L laptop with Windows XP. It is now about 4-5 years old but serves my purposes very well. Well that was until today. Something has happened and all of a sudden I am unable to get to a lot of my software or many other places on the computer itself.

I am lucky that I did get to IE, because I usually use Mozilla Firefox for surfing. Anyway, when I try to get to several pieces of software I get the following message:

Windows cannot access the specified service, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item

I have always used this and now all of a sudden I cannot. I not only get this on this file, but several others as well, like Yahoo Messenger, Skype, and others.

I need to know if there are settings that might have been jammed up by something I might have tweaked, but for the life of me cannot understand how, and short of having to lose all the important information stored on the computer and having to reformat, I cannot, do this, there has to be a simplier answer to this madness.

Thank you all in advance for your most valuable attention and helping me solve this problem.

After checking further it seems that all the problems are in C:\Program Files & F:\Program Files. I just do NOT know what to do next. So your expertise help will be appreciated.

Story time.

I work at Office Depot during the weekends because I'm in college. Last saturday, I had business customers come in looking for computers and other components. I spent almost an hour with them until they thought it would be a good idea to offer me a job as an IT personel for their business branch here in Wisconsin. I have very little experience with networking but I can diagnose almost any given hardware and most software problems. I explained that to them but they were still interest in hire me also for the fact that I speak Portuguese (they do a lot of business with Brazil). I agreed to help them out in any possible way that I could.

Now here's the issue. I want to help them but I don't want to look like a moron when I have to do something. To make it even worse, they are going to talk to HP tomorrow but I cannot be there to give my advice.

Answer:keylogger problems? URGENT

Hmmm. my post still not answered. So i'll make it much easier. Since posting I checked out more info. Found post in Security Forum indicating that KLDetector is a weak keylogger remover program.

Maybe. But it seems to return one heck of a lot of false positives, unless there is really a keylogger on my system. I have all the major stuff and run it frequently and it only finds minimally risky items.

I still have not heard back from the author of keylogger. Perhaps he didn't see anything so it is a lower priority getting back to me. Hope so, I know you all must be very busy.

Also i noted that a poster said Google was no help in finding a keylogger remover (the post dated to 2004) and I think that's right. I was burned to see one site come up with supposed spyware removers, none of which were the good ones, and some possibly bad if not just inefficient.

SO a compliment to you all. (and MajorGeeks) where i know I can trust the suggestions for downloads, help and general advice.

I hope you just haven't answered mine because you don't see anything. I sure try hard NOT to get stuff.

I originally had Windows XP Pro installed, and I installed Windows Vista Ultimate on another partition on another hard disk.

Everything worked well with the Vista Bootloader etc for about 2 weeks, until earlier today when I decided I didn't need Windows XP any more.

I deleted the Windows XP partition and merged it back with the rest of that drive...

When I rebooted, I got the error:

NTLDR missing

I booted from the Vista DVD and did the following:
Startup Repair
bootrec /fixmbr
bootrec /fixboot
bootsect.exe /nt60 c:

Then when I booted I got the error:

BOOTMGR missing

I took my hard disk and copied this file from my friends machine...

Now I get the error:

File:\Boot\BCD
Status: 0xc000000f
Info: An error occurred while attempting to read the boot configuration data

I have just tried this:

bootrec /rebuildbcd

And it finds the installation at C:\Windows and asks me to type Yes, which I do...

I think get the error:

The requested system device cannot be found
I am assuming that all the bootloader and bcd files were on the Windows XP partition I deleted... so this Windows is more or less stranded
What on Earth can I do? I need this system up and running as soon as possible, and formatting isn't really much of an option as I have a lot of university work to do.

Ive got a problem with my Bro´s PC (custom build)

Note: Im from Mexico and obviously im using software in spanish, so some options "might" be worded different than the american releases

Alright, apparently, my mom turned off the power surge protector (sp?) while the PC was on, and this morning the PC didnt wanted to start

basically, after the Intel startup image (where you can enter the Bios), i get the message of a problem starting Windows XP, and the different options (start normally, with the last optimal setting, the different Safe Mode´s. etc)

But when i choose any option, the Windows XP startup screen appears and starts loading, but after a few secs, it changes to a black screen and re-starts from the Intel screen

However, if i choose any of the Safe modes, it starts to load different files, and then another screen appears saying:

"Press Esc to cancel loading d347bus.sys...."

After a while, the same thing happens

Or, it must onboard video. If I remove the video card will it possibly work then ?

******** UPDATE**********
Removing the video card worked partly.
I can at least now get to the desktop and my lady will never notice the video card missing. Not until she goes to play a game anyway

I reloaded the drivers for the video card and then reinstalled the video card, but that doesn't work. I have no monitor with the video card and cant install it will the computer running, so I cant even do a fresh install of xp and expect it to find the card as I cant have the card in while doing the fresh install.

Good morning All,

I am having a very frustrating porblem trying to share a folder in XP Pro. I have three computers that are part of a domain. All three computers are running XP pro. and are fully up to date. Previously I shared a folder on one of the computers and the other two were able to have full access to that folder and all of the files and folders within. The documents within the folder are all excel spreadsheets and were previously opened on more than one computer at a time. When changes were made and the document was saved it would reflect the changes on the computer that holds the file when a save was done on that computer. The computer that the file was stored on had hard drive problems and therefore I had to replace the drive. I was able to save all the information and simply copied the file in question to a network drive and later copied it to the new drive. I have shared the file and granted full access to the users in question. However, the users are only able to open the files as read-only. I view properties on every file within the folder and each file shows that the users that need full access have it but that is not the case. I have googled it to death with no help. This seems like a very simple task to accomplish can anyone help?

Then It then prompts me to locate the source which I can never find. I also get these error codes after my updates fail 66A, 800064C, and 64C. I am not very educated in computer software so ANY help you guys can give me would be GREATLY appreciated.

Thanks for dropping by, as you will see from my questions I don't know much about computers, I have questions concerning my notebook computer and I would appreciate anyone's help on my questions. Thanks in advance.

I have a fujitzu lifebook c350 notebook, 260herz pentium, 4GB, 32mbram

1- I recently have windows 2000 installed, and it is running very slow, could I speed it up by upgrading the memory from 32 to 64?

2- What is the minimum system requirement for operationg windows 2000?

3- Since the windows 2000 is running so slow, I want to reinstall win98, but the message I am getting is that I need to get out of windows and run install from DOS. But how to you get to DOS without getting into windows?

4-Since I am so desperate, I am even considering deleting the whole harddrive and reinstall win98 that way.
How do you format the harddrive?
and would windows 98 have system drivers for Fujizu included (I have lost the system driver CD)

please help
 

Answer:Need urgent help on my notebook problems?

Yes, an increase in memory will make win2k run both smoother and speed-up performance. If you want to re-install win98, you should reformat and reload win98 from the cd. If you need help with the reformat, post back and I will try to help you through it. I may be off line for awhile I am having problems with a new motherboard and processor that I installed last night.

Ok, for reasons I dont weant to go into, its vital I sort out a stupid mistake I made. Im on XPhome, and when I first started the computer up, I made a user account with my RL name as the username, but now I NEED to change it because a program im using displays the whole of a file path(inc the username part) to other program users. I have changed the name of the only account on the computer to gundam, but it still shows up with the old username on all my file paths, and I need it to display the new one(ie, the new one would be c:\my documents\gundam\filename or whatever).

I have tired moving the old username folder(which still hangs about even though the name of the account has been changed) but all I get when I try to move or delete it is somethig along the lines of "Access is denied, make sure the file/folder is not full or write protected".

Im probably just retarded and the solution is staring me in the face but can anyone help?

Ok so, im at my mums house, leaving tomorrow, and i need to fix this tonight!

She's got this email program called incredimail, and, insists on having it because of its nice animations and backgrounds etc.

Everytime we try and send/recieve mail it comes up with:

Outgoing server mail.optusnet.com cannot be found. The following case(s) may cause this problem. (then it mentions zone alarm blah blah blah)

Incoming server pop3 cannot be found. The following case(s) may cause this problem. (more zone alarm stuff)

Ive gone through the zonealarm troubleshooting on the incredimail website, did everything and no change. I even exited zonealarm and the problem still occured. Then i checked the accounts, they were all right, i removed them then did them again, taking the information from outlook express and the problems still happened. I then exited my avast antivirus incase that was the problem, and the same thing happened.

any help?

Answer:Incredimail Problems - Urgent!

Hi helen_rules,

Incredimail?, although a very 'pretty' email program is in fact very intrusive indeed.
It is common knowledge that the operators of Incredimail? are in Israel, and because of that they can do alll sorts of things that would be considered as an invasion of privacy in many countries (including Australia).
When using Incredimail?, any email that you send is only 'relayed' by your ISP (Optusnet) to the Incredimail Server; then, Incredimail 'send' the email (but not before they have recorded the sender and receiver's email addresses and the email contents in its database, for on 'selling' to advertisers.)
In view of this, perhaps Optusnet (I used to use them as my ISP until recently) have 'censored' Incredimail's Server IP address and classified it as SPAM.
One way to check this is to open the Optusnet Desktop Service Centre that came with the installation of your (presumably) D-Link DSL-302G Modem (if you are on Broadband), and then sign in to your mum's Web Mail Account and see if the Spam Filter is On or Off...if it is On; then, chances are that the Incredimail traffic has been Blocked as SPAM for the reasons I have said.
So if your mum still insists on using Incredimail, you can switch Off Optusnet's email SPAM filter; however, this will not prevent all kinds of SPAM etc from being sent to her.
My sincerest advice is to tell your mum to forget Incredimail and go on to Google? and search for the free smilies etc. that are available for emails, and use... Read more

This is an urgent problem as i need to access my Internet banking, apart from other sites which are essential to me. I have HP Presario and work in Vista.

Almost everytime i try to reach a website i get the familiar massage 'Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage' etc etc. An example is on one attempt to my bank, i got as far as typing in my passwords, then got the IE sign again when trying to go to the next step.

I have had 4 trys at a new restore point. All this succeeded in doing was to de-activate my Avast security, which has been in use for much longer than the first restore point. I have tried a hard reset too which did nothing at all.

A FULL scan with Malwarebytes found nothing. What is extra tiresome, is that i cannot re-activate the Avast, even when i downloaded the system again from scratch. (Incidentally they installed Chrome at the same time, which i didn't want!) Clicking on the Avast FIX IT sign doesn't work at all.

I really hope that some kind person can help me with this as soon as possible please as the computer is getting almosy unusable. I would be most grateful to say the least!

Hello all, I have been having a real tough time lately with my computer. It has been starting up fine but after either getting to the user select screen, or after I have selected a user, the computer will just freeze. I'm not sure what was doing this but it occured for about a week or so before I was able to actually successfully log into my user account. Upon logging in, I was hit with a slow connection along with pop-ups, and a bundle of other things I can't explain because of my low computer knowledge. Anyhow, I have discovered traces of virtumonde (or w/e thats called), some trojans, and altnet to be on my computer after running malwarebytes malware removal and SpyBot search and Destroy. Neither option has been able to successfully remove my problem(s), so thats when I came here. Now, I have prepared a HiJackThis log and pasted it below.

Hi. I have a Acer M1641 on Windows Vista Home Premium 32-Bit. 3 GB RAM. Processer is Intel Core 2 Duo E4700 2.60 GHz.

Well my computer is running normally as usual, then suddenly one day I switch it on, it gets to loading bar and doesn't get past that. It tries to use CHKDSK to scan for the problem and fix it, but no matter how long I leave the computer for (left 11 hours once), it stays at 0%. I tried System Restore, but it could not load any backups without scanning the hard drive for errors 1st (the CHKDSK which of course wouldn't work). I then downloaded Windows Vista onto a DVD, and booted the computer from it to re-install Vista; it said: "A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing." which I have no idea what it means.

When I open system restore, no option to 'Restore from a different point' i.e. a disk/flash drive is there. There is only the option to restore from backups.

PLEASE help in simple terms. I need the computer functioning desperately for my coursework. Thank you.

ok, the thing is i had this virus on my pc which i learned after a lot of research required me to boot in safe mode in order to remove it. The problem is, while trying to boot in safe mode several times, my computer just crashes to a blue screen. I then learned that besides pressing F8 there was another way to boot in safe mode by going to "Run" and typing msconfig and booting it manually that way. Unfortunetly, this technique ended in the same crash. By now i realize that it is IMPOSSIBLE for me to boot in safe mode. My one major problem now is, that i CANNOT BOOT IN NORMAL MODE EITHER. I guess by trying to boot in safe mode using msconfig, i've changed my pc's settings to where now, normal mode=safe mode, and obviously, safe mode keeps crashing. As of now i cannot boot my pc AT ALL. I thought there might be a way to recover/fix safe mode by using the windows cd, but i really dont know what to do. i hope you guys can help me out, thanx

My Acer was experiencing problems (running slow etc.) So i decided to run a virus scan on AVG virus software. When i saw that my firewall was in need of an update, I clicked to update and my computer shut off. Ever since then I was getting the blue screen of death, and no option for safe mode, so I could not boot windows.

Today I found out that I could access Acers recovering managment by using Alt F10 in POST.

I restroed my computer back to factory original and everything was seeming to work fine.

Untill, in the middle of Vista reloading itself, I got another blue screen of death, this one, not so fatal, allowed me to boot in safe mode. Vista however did not. I could not boot in safe mode untill windows had finished updating. So i returned to boot normally, I got to right before selecting a User and I got a pop up saying "Your computer was restarted blah blah blah" basically, I could yet again, not load windows.

So i returned to the Acer recovery, hopeing to again restore to default.

No such luck.

Every restore I attempt, fails about 3/4 of the way into it.

" Restore failed - reason 0xd000000d"

After the failed restore, I can load my computer up to the Post point but after that it restarts itself.

Maybe one of your RAM modules is bad. If you have vista, hold down f10 or f8 at during boot to see if you can get to the memory diagnostic tool.
I had errors so I tried removing one of the RAM modules. Once I removed the bad RAM the error went away.
(Bad RAM, contact the manufacturer and get it replaced or buy new RAM).

So earilier today I was playing one of my many games and suddenly I lose my sound is just completely cuts out. So im thinking its the cord again and nothing. So I decide to restart my computer and It does not want to shut down. It stayed on the "windows is shutting down" screen for like 5 minutes. So I hit the reset button, as is booting up it stops at the Windows Xp screen and doesn't even make it to the login screen. After pondering this for a few minutes and try booting a few more times. I decide the sound card is the problem and must have went south. I pull it from the motherboard and try to boot my computer again, and what luck it makes it all the way to the desktop except now my wireless card is not working. So i pull that out and put I back in and I Device Manager thinks the wireless card is not even in the board when it is. Thankfully my video card is on 16x slot and was spared but I want to know whats happening to my hardware. Is the hardware bad or did the PCI Bus slots go south on me? I have a Asus PB5-E motherboard.

There is really no way anyone could speculate which, you would need to try replacements with a risk of frying.

The other issue is that as you terminated the shutdown, some drivers may have been corrupted when unloading.

The print head is clogged. Try running the print head utility a few times. Clean the print heads by performing a head cleaning followed by printing a nozzle check pattern. A head cleaning and nozzle check pattern must be performed as a cycle. After printing a nozzle check pattern, examine the printed dot pattern. Each staggered horizontal and straight vertical line should be complete, with no gaps in the dot pattern. If there are gaps in the dot pattern, continue with another cycle. Perform up to 3 cycles if necessary.

If that does not help then you can buy the print head cleaning kit from this site http://www.fixyourownprinter.com/kea0.html and if you want to see what is involved in cleaning the print head using the kit this link will help http://epsonhelp.freehttp.com/Printhead.html If you would like to find out one reason why the print head clogged after changing the ink cartridge read this link http://epsonhelp.freehttp.com/why.html if you want to really test the print output try printing the page from this link http://epsonhelp.freehttp.com/Color.html

Hi Everyone
I'm scratching my head on a problem with Internet Explorer. What happens is if I go to a web page that has a date assosiated to it, like sports.yahoo.com the date on the page should disply the current date, but it does not. It displays the date from the last time I visited the site. This is happening to every site I visit that has a date connected to it. I'm guessing it's something simple but I just don't see it. I'm sure it's not a virus as this is a new system and has Norton AV 2007 and AVG Anti-Spyware installed. If anyone has any thoughts, or has seen this before, let me know.

All the best

I have vista premium home 64 bit.
My windows defender keeps telling me its out of date. I tried to fix the problem via the microsoft site and it took 40 minutes to download the update definitions and whatever. I am still getting that message windows defender is out of date and no new definitions.

I took off my anti virus program, Webroot AntiVirus and with antispyware thinking this crummy program corrupted my Windows defender. So I currently do not have any virus protection program on my computer.

I have noticed there are many problems with webroot antivirus on the internet, as well as experiencing my own problems with it and their terrible "support".

I have not been able to successfully update their newest update and was getting a message that webroot was on but not unable to communicate with Windows Defender.

So, is this awful program, webroot responsible for corruping my Windows defender?

If not, how do I restore Windows defender?

I am a computer dummie, so easy is better for me.

Answer:Windows Defender is out of date problems

Your best and simplest bet is to get FREE Microsoft Security Essentials. It is made by Microsoft and will disable Defender since it will no longer be needed. This all in one program is all you need.
