Preferred Solution: Solved: Dude Help Me!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

If is the way to recover from this?

hi . i recently bought this new mother board by Asus, P5RD1-V. the problem is that when i try to install windows xp on my SATA HD, after the initial stage during which the setup copies all the drivers and then gives that option " to install windows XP press enter" plus one or two other options, when i press enter i get this massage that says " setup didnt find any hard drives installed on your system. check to see if any HD is installed .... " and then it goes on to say things like check your drive configuration or the drive health and things like that. all this when at the the bootup it does show the hard drive connected at SATA port 1. !! ? i run seagate diagnostic tool on it and it showes the drive as perfectly healthy. i dont know why is it doing it. the hard disk is spanking brand new. the same goes for the 120GB WD SATA. the interesting thing it has no issue with the good old IDE HD's. i connected my old maxtor IDE hard drive and the setup ran as smooth as it can get. i dont know why setup isent detecting the SATA HD. is it the board or is it somthing else. any ideas !

Windows 7
x64 bit
Retail version
Hardware is all new except for the video card, which was functioning fine last week (never had a BSOD error before this new setup)
I have reinstalled the OS as off 11/1/2011 (after getting tons of blue screens, i installed a 2nd time)
CPU: AMD Phenom (tm) II X6 1035T Processor 2.60 GHz
Video Card: Radeon HD 5750
Motherboard: ASUS M5A97
PSU: Corsair GS600 (600w)

Homebuilt system.

I haven't updated the BIOS or any drivers past what I received on the motherboard install disk. The motherboard is new out of the box as is the RAM, CPU (and heat sync), and PSU.

I installed win 7 initially and after installing MB driver updates, etc..started to go through programs (flash, java, etc...) and began getting a lot of blue screens of various kinds. I narrowed it down I thought to a driver issue with my video card. Apparently the atikmdag.sys file that comes with catalyst screws up win 7 computers? I was careful not to install the video care drivers the 2nd install of 7 and I got no BSOD errors till I did. Having said that, all my errors seem to be unrelated to my video card, examples: "bad_pool_header" and "system_service_exception".. I'm a bit stuck. Also my desktop window manager has crashed a couple times.

Thanks for any help..

Answer:[SOLVED] BSOD - (out of date) tech. dude needs help

Hi -

There were 8 BSOD dump files, 1 was -0- bytes (indicates catastrophic, sudden hardware failure). The remaining 7 don't offer us much as they seem to point everywhere, but nowhere. ATI video, Networking (tcpip.sys), memory, security descriptors, etc...

I did find entries like this in Event Viewer -

Code:
{Registry Hive Recovered} Registry hive (file): '\??\Volume{625b9dda-049f-11e
1-8f9f-806e6f6e6963}\System Volume Information\SPP\SppCbsHiveStore\{cd

was corrupted and it has been recovered. Some data might have been lost.
Registry hive corruption may be HDD failure.

I also found 100s++ entries relating to "bad blocks" + CDROM. Any chance the DVD used to install Windows 7 is bad?

I saw -0- Windows Updates in the systeminfo file, yet the Event Logs show both success and failure for Windows Updates. WERCON shows 100s of Windows Updates failures. Please check Control Panel - are there any Windows Updates installed? I do know that Windows 7 SP1 is not installed.

I know you have 4x4 GB RAM; some bugchecks were memory related.

Ok so I had to reinstall windows XP because my OS would not load and I got all the drivers reinstalled, diagnostic ran smooth and everything came up working ok etc but my device manager won't recognize anything! The compy says my audio mixers are not there, my USB devices are not working, hardware wizard is not responding, microsoft updates are not working, Dell's driver downloads are calling out for something that isn't there and I really really need this fixed ASAP so I can get to my external HD. So I tried putting an apple sticker on my Dell in hopes it would accept its new identity and start not sucking, but alas this did not work.

Question: Dude

Ok so this happened on my old XP machine, and just recently on this Vista one.

As far as i can tell, it is harmless, and i have barely noticed it, but it is a little frustrating.
All it is, is some virus or something. All that happens is some guys voice (maybe about 20 year) comes on the speakers saying "dude" in a weird sort of way. It happened quite a bit on my XP machine, but only once on this one. I looked on the internet and found nothing, and I am confused as to what it is.

Its not a huge issue, I can survive with it for now (until i reinstall) but i wanna know wtf is with it.

Question: What next dude?

Hey chaps,
So, I?ve ran through all your Read & run First steps, and ran CCleaner... as far as I can tell 2 problems remain.
The first is on starting up IE: on start up of my pc the following virus warning appears (see 1st screen shot). AVG detects it and asks if I want to heal or quarantine, I have done both.
Second, is the most frustrating, certain web sites that I visit, (non-porn) do this really annoying thing, I get automatically re-directed to a dell search page, I run a dell PC and at the top of the page it says: Sorry, we couldn't find http://ad.uk.doubleclick.net/adi/N3784.AND/B2258036;sz. Here are some related websites: (2nd screen shot was too big to post, should i e-mail?)
I also run a registered copy of Spyware Detector, this obviously hasn't detected it.
Plus, when I opened up majorgeeks.com the following message appeared. (See 3rd screen shot)
Can you help, please?
 

Answer:What next dude?

Hi

you'll need to attach the logs requested from the Read Me guide.




When you return to make your next post, make sure you attach the following logs and that you have run these scans in the following order too:
CounterSpy
AVG Antispyware log - ONLY IF NEEDED you were not able to run CounterSpy
Bitdefender - from step 6
Panda Scan - from step 6
runkeys.txt - the log from GetRunKey.bat
newfiles.txt - the log from ShowNew.bat
HijackThis

NOTE: You can only attach 3 files in a single message so it will require that you use two messages to attach all of these logs!

day one of my problems the computer froze up would do nothing so I attempted to reboot and it would not allow me to shut down so I powered off with the power button, it worked for most of that day
then later either that day or the next it froze up again and I was able to reboot, then just yesterday I set the laptop down softly and it shut off this happened twice.
The second time it would not boot, the power led would come on for about 4 seconds, and the battery light would flash about every 3 seconds. I tried taking the battery out and just leaving the power cord plugged in and it worked so I left it that way for some time, later in the day I put the battery back in just because I did not like leaving the battery out and having an opening for dust etc. to get in.
I set it down awhile later and again it shut and hasn't come back on. I still get the power light for 4 secs, and and then battery light flash every 3 or 4 secs. I am a little knowledgeable about computers so I took it apart and I don't see anything wrong inside.
I reset the CMOS just for fun and did a little cursing, then tried to pray, and here I am begging for help from you kind folks....
I haven't tried the hammer yet, thought I would check here first... Thanks in advance for your help...

I got a client where we gave him a fresh install of Windows Xp Pro Sp2 (Legit Copy + Updates)

This guy installs a chase game, however when it comes to trying to play it, he gets an error message saying that he needs OpenGL1.1 or greater to play it.

I found an OpenGL1.1 on the microsoft website. However think this is mainly for Windows 95 / NT Platforms as it did not do any thing.

I have re-installed the video card drivers (onboard NVIDIA GeForce 6100 GPU on a Gigabyte GA-K8N51GMF-9 SKT 939 Motherboard). Please note that these are the video card drivers from Gigabyte's Website. I have fround that the nVidia Drivers from the nVidia's website does not what to have any thing do with it.

It's currently using Direct X 9.0c (however I have not re-installed that yet)

I have tried looking at the OpenGL.org site. However the only download I can seem to find points back to the same one from Microsoft that I mensioned earlier.
However the website is talking about OpenGL 2.0. There is a lot of blurb on what it does, but no downloads for it.

Any other suggestions on where I can download Open GL 1.1 or greater?

Thank you.

Answer:DUDE! Where's My OpenGL?!?!

So I've got this Gateway GT4009. That's a good PC, right? I got it for free out of a school that closed.

I'm a little stressed out because the problems I'm having are not consistent. When I first started the computer, it went past the XP spash screen and then it said to press ctrl+alt+delete. BUT before I could do anything it restarted and it did it again then restarted and so on.

So I decided to reinstall XP. It made it halfway through the NTFS format and then it restarted and loaded to the infamous "blue screen of death" and it had a stop code of 0x0000004e, which according to this article is bad ram, so i replaced the ram stick. Then it went to setup. Then it restarted. Then I said screw it, I'm going to ask for help.

Now I've read that this restarting happens for 3 different reasons: 1) OS problems. (which we know it can't be since I'm booting from CD) 2) a hot CPU or 3) a bad power supply. I don't have a replacement power supply handy, so I want to test the CPU heat. How do I know how hot my CPU is and what exactly IS too hot?

Answer:Help a Mac dude understand PC.

Next time before you reinstall, try safe mode (press F8 at startup).

Dunno about what constitutes too hot, but when you boot, you can get into the BIOS (there's a key you have to press right after you power on your PC - maybe Del, maybe F10, don't know what it is for Gateway PC's). Then just navigate around the menu and you're likely to find your CPU temperature.

HI,

I just got set up with comcast internet yesterday, I have 2 Desktops, one running XP home, and another running Redhat 9.0, along with 2 laptops running XP Pro.

Befor I was running Quest DSL and everything was working fine,

I am using Netgear wireless router, with a Linksys 5 port hub.

I can only have internet connection to my desktop running XP home, it is hardwired. I have to take incomming internet from modem into one of the ports on the Netgear because the incomming port on Netgear does not work. Then I have internet to the Netgear and my laptop will see that there is wireless but it will not see other computers or the internet. I have tried putting the incomming internet into the incomming port on the Netgear and still nothing. I am not sure what is going on but this is not working and I tried all day yesterday to fix this but nothing worked.

I live in Ireland!

I have tried to purchase a MS Surface RT. I have tried every possibility!

The only possible way that I can buy one legally, is to buy it in the UK & have to shipped to someone in Northern Ireland (Part of the UK. A real Irishman would NEVER do this. I would have to cross the border into NI).

I talked to my Electronics retailer here that has been in business for over 50 years! I buy all my electronics there.

He told me that the only way he cold get them is to buy a skid load. He says he could not invest that kind of money at the expense of his general inventory!

I have contacted the Irish office of Microsoft. All they do is transfer the call to the UK MS Website. I can fill in the order for the Surface, but at the check out, it tells me they CAN NOT ship to the IRSH REPUBLIC!!

Why in HELL was I transferred to THE UK??

I have contacted all the Electronic retailers in Ireland & no one has them!

PC World told me I had to order them online! But they didn't have any idea where!!

Answer:Hey Dude, Where is my Surface RT?

Now you see what us Americans often go through when foreign companies make products, such as Nintendo, Samsung, etc, and we have to wait behind for availability.

I'm quote certain Microsoft wouldn't boycott a "world leading country". They haven't been on the market very long, so my suggestion would be to go to the largest electronics retailer, either in person or online and find one there. If the one who went to isn't a nationwide chain, then they may not be able to purchase them as easily as the major retailers.

Now, down to business. First of all the problem is not on this computer it is on my other house computer. Through a recent download we ended up picking up some malware called Cowabanga, Deluxe Communication .


Here is what I have done to get rid of this. Each folder came with an uninstall so I tried that. I also tried to manually delete all folders but it seems that it only morphs itself in other folders.

It has disabled my internet which forces me to use this other computer.

I'm new to using forums. Running Windows XP SP2Working on a friends Dell Dimension 5150. First it would not turn on, did some poking around and looked like the computer had been dropped. The ram had disconnected, fixed that Starting cleaning up the thing (history, viruses, malware all that fun stuff) When I went to reboot it, it seems XP was corrupted. The taskbar had reverted to what windows 2000 task bars looked like. Yet it was below the viewing space. No start button at all up able to drag the task bar to make it larger. Can't open IE. The only I can make the computer function is through Task Manager. Some areas of Concern I have is...When I boot the computer it informs me that the Floppy Drive is not found F1 to continue F2 to try again. After I get past the Floppy seek bios pops up with 3 options...1) Windows NT 6.X2) Windows NT 5.x3)GRUB4DOS (it defaults to this option, when I select 1 or 3 it tries to boot but doesn't.)Also at one point in the booting process I'm prompted with the text {{{{ " Urr! wee..."}}}} <<<<< Just like that. I've never heard of that.Thanks for taking the time to read this post. Any help is greatly appreciated, Brad

Hi, I have the same/similar problem as dude 1234. Firefox using 100% CPUI didnt want to steal his post so I made my own.I have doing a bit of research on different things for browsers, this amongst them. (Well I dont know that its the browser actually).Every now and then my computer seems to just grind away, fans rev to their limit, windows wont open and the whole system drags for ages then to a total stop.It seems as though it is a memory problem, but having read that post, I wondered if it was my browser? I have a Pentium 4 CPU 3.00 Ghz 1.5GB of RAM. My computer doesnt always play up like that but it has its moments.The easiest way to get past it is to close everything and then restart F/F, this does cure it but is really inconvenient if I have lots of windows open.Can I do anything to cure this phenomenon please?

Answer:Same as dude 1234 CPU Grinding away at 100%?

Well your computer is better than mine and, anyway, I have investigated and determined its not a processor or memory problem. Try using Opera browser and see if you think that eliminated the problem. I'd be interested to know."Browser" is the name of the software you use to download and display web material. Examples of browsers are:- Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera, Chrome.In case you are not familiar with the term "software", it means a computer program. Computers have hardware (all the electronic bits), and software (all the instructions that are given to the hardware to make it do something useful). My apologies if I have over-simplified this, but it sounded like you needed to know.

I'm really hoping someone can help me with this because it's driving me nuts.

I have 2 computers hooked up to a router, to share the internet connection.

Recently one of the computers got a really bad virus, so I formatted the hard drive. I decided to format the other computer's hard drive as well, as long as I was at it. After the formats, both computers has intermittent problems connecting to the web. They'd connect, then lose the connection for a while, then connect, etc. I figured the router was shot, since I was already on my second one and I know those things don't last forever. I went out and got a new router and that one seemed to do the trick- for a while anyhow. Now I'm back to the same problem of both computers occasionally losing their connectivity. If I wait a while it comes back, but 5 minutes can be an eternity where you're trying to do stuff online.

Now that I have a new router and I'm still having problems- I figure it must have something to do with my settings. I've turned OFF windows firewall and the firewall in PC-Cillin, but the problem still persists. Beyond turning off the firewall however, I'm afraid I don't know much about what might be causing my computers to have connectivity problems.

Can anyone out there shed some light on which settings I might change in order to maintain my connection? Possibly something in Windows security center, but there's so much stuff in there that I'm af... Read more

My goal is to mod my Dell until it's no longer recognizable as such.

Here's a summary of my question:
Which should I buy first: a CPU fan, or a mobo/PSU combination? In other words, which is more important: keeping my CPU below 55&deg; C or being able to plug the mobo into the front panel USB, power switch?

Here are the details:
I am tweaking the heck out of my Dell Dimension 2350 Intel P4 1.8 GHz 845GL system. My father got it for me two years ago because it was really cheap, and he thought it would be a good place to start and I could upgrade later. The thought was, at least it's an ATX with a P4, and my old Wintel system wasn't upgradeable to a P4 at all. Unfortunately, when I got it and opened it up, I found I couldn't add another HDD because there's no place for it! I was not aware of Dell's lockbox/proprietary policies before I got it. Needless to say, this is really annoying!

So, I've been putting a lot of effort lately into upgrading, modding, and doing all I can to negate the warranty! But I have a predicament right now, and that is, I've put myself in a place where I cannot just stop where I am. But I'm overbudget on my upgrades for this month, but I've ended up with a PC in a sort of a "transitional phase" and I need to know: what's the most important step to take next, if I can only do one thing?

My first step was to replace the graphics card and disable onboard graphics (and I... Read more

Answer:Dude, you're killing your Dell!

Update: This, and other pages led me to think the PSU is proprietary. But my mobo doesn't have that other 6-pin dealio that the older Dells had. It looks like a standard ATX PSU. And if you look at the specs for these knockoffs, you'll see it's 20-pin ATX. Does anyone know for sure? A new PSU would almost cost more than a mobo!

I had wrote a thread amonth ago under the title "Where is my disc space???". The suggestions were all helpful, but they were only about retrieving lost files and such. I've finally settled into the mind set that my treasures are gone, (photos, videos, music, ect ) but I thought that when you do a full system restore that it not only wipes out all the old stuff but also clears up or clears out space. I'm down to about a 150 to 175mb of space which leaves 0% of memory. I don't know where my space went or how to get it back. I have the minimum programs and such. I have nothing to throw out. Do I have to get back all of the old files to go through those and delete what I can? HELP! S.O.S. May day. May Day. Man Down.

"Memory" is built into the machine and stays the same. It has nothing to do with disk space.

If you are low on disk space, you need to find out what is using it and remove anything unneeded, or get a larger drive.

You can explore the space usage with:

I was trying to remote from my desktop at home to my work laptop. I changed the workgroup on my laptop to match my workgroup at home. But being that the laptop is a secured login its not accepting my password now, and just tells me "The system could not log you on. Make sure you User name and domain are correct, then type your password again." Ummm so that's special. I don't know any of the other admin account user names or passwords but I am able to see it on my network. I don't know if there's any way for me to fix the problem myself without having to confess my stupidity to the powers that be. If anyone has any helpful advice it would be much appreciated.

At the login screen press ctrl+alt+del (you may have to press it twice) and it should present you with the old style login. From there you should be able to choose the domain you are logging into.

If that does not work, you should probably contact your IT dept. and let them fix it.

We have a PC which we use for our SBS 2003 R2 Server. It's an entry level server with 3 PC connected to it.
Specs are Intel Core2Duo E8400, 4Gb DDR II Ram, 2x SATA 160Gb Hard Drive (Software Raid for OS), 2x 1Tb Hard Drive (Raid via Adaptec Adaptec 1220SA), 1x 1TB Hard Drive for nightly back up.

This PC is left on 24/7. However every 6-8 weeks, the data from the 2x 1TB Hard Drives disappears. We will go into MY COMPUTER, we can still see the RAIDed Volume. However when we open up the volume, there is no data on the volume. We have found that if we restart the server, the data is back. During the restart, i notice that the RAID controller card is reporting to me that the volume is OPTIMAL.

This morning, we had this happen for the 3rd time, and it's getting a little annoying with the little mirror heart attack that you get finding that your data has gone walkies.

We are using your Adaptec Utility to monintor the RAID. The RAID is set up as a RAID1 (or Drive Mirror).

Any advice on what could be going wrong and what steps me can take to resolve the issue.

Answer:DUDE! Where's My RAID Data? Adaptec AAR-1220SA

Have you checked device manager when the data on the volume isn't found? It could possibly be the RAID controller itself adn Windows would report that the device is failing when you can't find the files. Also does the card report that the volume is optimal everytime or only when it fails the previous time?

I would say start with a driver reinstall/update first and go from there. I'm assuming your software RAID running 2003 is 100&#37;?

I quickly located the file and deleted it, and emptied my bin, cleared all my cookies and history on my browser, etc. I then boot up my PC in safe mode, look for any of the listed .scr infections posted of the steam forums but found none. I can't completely recall anything strange going on either after that. I then restarted and scanned my computer with Malwarebytes, Superantispyware, and Avast. Only Supersantispyware found three threats which were cookies. It took action and still I can't completely seem to know whether or not i'm infected with the virus.

Enable Steam Guard. Never disable it no matter what others say.
Use strong passwords with your Steam account. Never share it with anyone. Change it on a regular basis.
Make sure that the email tied to your Steam account has the two-factor authentication (2FA) feature enabled. Never share your password for it as well.
Familiarize yourself with terms related to Steam, such as SSFN, Steam Guard, and Steam Wallet, so that you know what they are, their purpose, and how they’re used.
Avoid clicking links sent over your way via Steam chat. If you can, take the time to verify them using free online tools at your disposal. Is the link shortened? Do what Joe did and use a site that reveals the true destination of the URL. Not familiar with the domain of the URL you received? Do a bit of research on it, or have a website scanner visit it first. VirusTotal and Sucuri Site Check are just some of the tools you can use for this.
In line with the point above, make sure to read correctly the Steam URL sent to you. The only acceptable ones should be store.steampowered.com and steamcommunity.com. This is very important, especially when you’re expected to log in to your account to do something with the page.

In Printers and Faxes on the other two computers, does the printer have a pipe under it, indicating a network printer?

What error message do you get when you try to print? If no error message, does the print job go into a queue on that computer?

Hi, first of all, I'm not a tech whiz so please bear with me. My home network consists of a SpeedTouch ST536 ADSL modem, and a Cisco WRT54G2 wireless router. I have a desktop under a wired connection, and a notebook in another room that connects wirelessly. Both of them use windows 7.

Almost daily, the wireless connection disconnects after some time of usage and stays that way. From what I can tell, it seems to occur randomly. My desktop however remains connected, so it's not the entire internet is down. Through some tinkering, I discovered that I could get the notebook to reconnect by either enabling or disabling my SSID broadcast (depending on which setting it was in the first place).

I do think it's related to my desktop though. This problem occurs ONLY when both desktop and notebook are on. If I'm only using my notebook there won't be any disruptions.

Anyone has any idea what's going on? Could someone be hijacking my network? Any help will be appreciated, thanks!

(Btw, I used to use a 2Wire unit which was a modem and router, and did not encounter such problems before.)

Ok, it's a bit hard to explain this problem but I'll try anyway... I have a Thinkpad T410 (Core i5 520M, 4GB RAM, Intel GMA HD, 250GB HDD (5400rpm?) Win 7 Professional 32bit). For some reason there are strange "lag spikes" which occur once in a while. The system stops responding to mouse and keyboard and programs hang for a very short time, about 2 seconds at max (sounds seem not to be affected though). It can happen in any situation, text processing, net browsing, picture editing, games etc. Power management settings don't have much effect on this problem, at least it still occurs on maximum performance mode. Does anyone have any idea what could cause this? Is it one of those Lenovo programs or maybe a buggy driver? I've tried to search for resource-hungry processes using Process Explorer but I haven't found anything distinct. It seems that sometimes the CPU usage drops when a "spike" occurs but I'm not entirely sure about this. Sometimes it happens when playing  a game and there should be a sound effect; as if it would take some time to load the sound file or something. I've done some malware scans and it seems that there isn't any viruses which could cause this.

Hi Everyone,

Sorry about starting 2 threads that had similar issues and causing any possible confusion.

Firstly, I want THANK EVERYONE that posted and helped me out. I managed to solve the problem and thought I'd give everyone an update.

The issue with the Symantec NAV9 Corporate Edition was finally resolved. It appears that the SP2 component of Windows XP was the culprit causing an unsuccessful reinstall, as there was an incompatibility problem.

I completely uninstalled everything Symantec and Norton, reinstalled WinXP (without SP2) while unconnected to the network, then reinstalled Symantec NAV9. After reconnecting to the network, I updated both WinXP and Symantec.

On both PC's, the liveupdate was still inoperable and one of the PC's had the additional problem of Auto Protect permanently on "Disabled" mode.

I proceeded to repair all the Symantec Files, this restored one PC's LiveUpdate and Auto Protect immediately; on the other PC, the repairs didn't work, so I went to Symantec and downloaded an updated version of LiveUpdate, patched it and the problem was resolved immediately.

Now both PC's are up and runnning at full health.

My grateful thanks to everyone for their kindness in assisting me and their patience towards a true newbie.

Cheers!

SOLVED

As title above specifies, my internet connection varies from a low of about 50kbs to a high of about 5mbs.

I am connected via a wireless connection using a D-Link DI 524 router and a Netgear WG311 v2 802.11g Wireless PCI Adapter. Connection speed between the router and my computer displays on the connection status window as either 48mbs or 54mbs.However when the internet connection is slow, I have to wait minutes to connect to my router. Likewise, many times my email either fails to connect or times out during logon or during mail transfer. Internet pages either fail to find the URL (like Google or Yahoo) or "The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading" or just hangs partially loaded.

There is one other computer on the network connected exactly as I am and it does not slow down as severely as does mine.

Hello,

I'm having similar problems as with an earlier post by Azus, but unfortunately I couldn't resolve my issue by reading that post. I think that our issues are different enough that I may need to post my HJT log to resolve the problem.

I was googling something when all of this started. It happened so fast that I couldn't do anything before I got a blue screen. I know I was bombarded with something that may have given me a virus or some other problem. Hopefully you can help me with this dilema. Currently I can log on to Windows, but I get unwanted and uncontrolable popups, and eventually Windows shutsdown on me. Also, I use Skype to talk to my brother, but after all of this happened I can't launch Skype at all (even after reinstalling it).

Also, my other brother tried to fix some things but I really don't know what he did, or if it actually fixed anything. I hope he didn't "fix" it beyond repair...

Here is my HJT log in Normal Mode. If you need it from Safe Mode, I can do that too. I do appreciate any help that you can provide.

Hey all,

Just trying to save some time for anyone that runs into this error.

If you are using Outlook 2003 and using Word as your text editor, you may get one of the following messages when sending an email:

Interface not registered
Unspecified Error

To fix this, in the run box type (without quotes):
"Regsvr32.exe %Windir%\System32\Ole32.dll"

I just had this happen to two different machines within a week so I am expecting more

OK, I just want to run this one by all of you in case there's something that Microsoft Support and I missed. For the last month or so almost all of the links from my.msn.com (my former home page) have led to a "this page is not available" page, usually MSN's, but occasionally a standard IE error page. This is all links in the new, tech, entertainment and weather sections(theirs) and 2/3's of my personal links, the only exceptions being my bank log-in, one of my two credit cards, PayPal and Check Free Web. I can't get to my library links, EBay, a local TV news web site, this forum or GetSkinned. Both of the credit card pages are secure log-in sites.

I actually got an answer from support the first time I contacted the. It read:
Hello Sara,

Hello People

Whenever I play a .mov file in Quicktime, no matter what movie it is, it always shows a woman dancing in front of a webcam then opens Adult Friend Finder on the net.

Windows 98, outlook express version 6. When typing e-mail in text body font size changes while typing. Have default setting on size 12. When Enter key is pressed to change to a new line, size changes to size 8! Then I decided to Change the font setting to 18, while typing pressed enter at end of sentence line and the font changed to size 12! It just started doing this. My configuration has unchanged. Have not added any new programs or anything, all of a sudden it just started acting up. It keeps changing the font size while I am typing to smaller sizes. 12 is too small.

I just went to my Google Calendar a few minutes ago, only to discover that all of my entries have disappeared! Is it somehow possible to get them back? I did a System Restore, although I figured that wouldn't work -- and it didn't.

Earlier this evening I ran CCleaner and I wonder if somehow that would've inadvertently erased my calendar entries. I've run it in the past and never had this problem. (I also ran SpySweeper, SpywareBlaster, AdAware, and my AV program, although I don't believe they would have caused this problem.)

I've lost several months worth of entries that I really would like to get back! I hope that someone will be able to tell me how. Thank you.

I am experiencing problems with file sharing using Windows XP. Specifically, I get an access denied message when trying to access another machine's user folders under "documents and settings" across the network. I can only successfully access the user folder of the user currently logged in on the machine I am trying to access across the network. I have given full details below.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have just set up a home network consisting of a desktop (running XP Home) and a laptop (also running XP Home). The desktop goes into the combined router/modem via an ethernet cable and the laptop is wireless.

This network seems correctly set up. On both machines, when I go to network places and then view my workgroup computers, I can see the other machine. I can double-click the other machine and browse some folders/files that I shared. I have turned off all firewalls to make sure that I could do this.

The problem I am having involves accessing/sharing the different user folders that live under "Documents and Settings". On each machine, I have shared these folders on the network by selecting "Share this folder on the network" and "Allow network users to change my files". I am also prompted to specify a Share Name - which I have done.

On each machine, I can access the network and navigate to the user folders I have shared. Howe... Read more

Sony-Vaio Desktop Computer. Windows XP Home, SP2, IE 7 and Firefox 2.0.06, no viruses or spyware, HijackThis logs and Ad-Aware logs clean. Two hard disks, C and D. C is the one on which all the files are, D is empty (what is it good for, by the way?). C has an overall capacity of 27.95 GB of which 12.9 is occupied. Now, I have noticed (for two or three months, I never bothered looking before) that I am losing .01 GB of disk space PER DAY. Thus, day before yesterday, I had 15.05 GB of remaining free space, yesterday 15.04 GB and today it is 15.03.
C has never been reformatted before or undergone major "surgery". No new programs or large files have been installed or stored for ages, and automatic updates include Ad-Aware SE Personal (once a week), Windows Update (once a month) and Norton AntiVirus (once a week, only virus definitions), plus sporadic updates for Adobe Acrobat Reader, Flash etc.
The computer is turning a ripe four years old next month.
I use Disk Cleanup and Defragmenter to clean up stuff, empty my browser caches, histories and cookies after EVERY session, and delete old files when I don't need them.
So...what is behind the "theft" of my hard disk space? Thank you in advance for your time and answers.

I did a scan using NoAdware v4.0 (Unregistered version) and detected the following:

“ Backdoor.GWGhoHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\MicRegValue “ and:
“ Worm that trys to spread itself and allows unauthorized access to your PC.“

I tried to locate this with RegEdit and didn't find it (no surprise there as I'm rather a novice at this) and with RegCleaner.

Hello I need help!

I'm running Win XP Home. I keep getting random shutdowns with the following message:

"The system is shutting down. Please save all work in progress and log off. Any unsaved changes will be lost. This shutdown was initiated by NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM. The system process C:\WINNT\SYSTEM32\SERVICES.EXE terminated unexpectedly with status code 128. The system will shut down and restart."

I've already ran McAfee virus scan, stinger.exe, Spybot SD 1.3, Ad-Aware and Spy Sweeper. But nothing seems to fix.

I want to fix this problem before I update to Windows XP SP2.

I want to share how I solved these problems to give back to the many posters I read here who helped me.

First, the sleep problem. The second day after I installed Windows 7, the computer went to hybrid sleep (s3) overnight. When I moved the mouse the case light came on, the fans roared to life and ----- nothing! Black screen. A plain old hibernation worked fine, but a plain old s3 sleep did not (s1 did work). After reading and trying many good ideas presented here, but with no change in results, I gave it my last idea. I unplugged the P/S from the mains, I opened the case, and I firmly pressed on the graphics card and the graphics card power connectors to make sure it was all properly seated. You guessed it. I've had not one problem with sleep since. I'm using my board's default settings (auto) with ACPI and ACPI 2.0 (enabled), for anyone who is wondering. I'm guessing that at some point in the first day I slightly dislodged the graphics card. It is strange that the computer booted and otherwise behaved normally, but it did.

On to the boot hang . There was a 120 second boot delay on some reboots. The delay only occurred after the computer was powered up and in Windows 7 for more than approx 30 minutes. It hung right at "Windows Starting" and precisely 120 seconds later the first firefly would appear and continue with a normal Windows 7 boot. First I determined from the boot log that the boot only really started when the firefly appeared and that ev... Read more
