Home page automatically opens to "Customize Your Settings" page

Question: Home page automatically opens to "Customize Your Settings" page

Hello: I just received some windows updates as well as upgrading to Internet Explorer 7.
Note: I had to remove IE 7 the other day as I was having issues opening certain webpages.

Anyway, IE 7 seems to be navigating fine, other than the fact that when I click on my desktop icon to launch Internet Explorer it opens to a webpage that allows you to Customize Your Settings.

Although, I have www.google.com as my home page within Internet Options (General tab), Google does not open, but rather http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=69157" target="_blank" class="invilink">http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=69157" target="_blank" class="invilink">http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=69157 opens then quickly converts to http://runonce.msn.com/runonce2.aspx which then opens the Customize Your Settings webpage.

I noticed that the default setting in Internet Options is displayed as http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=69157 , so I tried to change that to www.google.com, but it reverts back to http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=69157 .

Any suggestions?

Thanks, Ted569

Preferred Solution: Home page automatically opens to "Customize Your Settings" page

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.)

Answer: Home page automatically opens to "Customize Your Settings" page

That is new with IE7.0. You should only have to run through the customization once though. Then click "Go To My Homepage." That should be all. Have you done that yet?

Heya, I'm a regular FF user, but lately just for kicks I have been using IE. Now for some reason, no matter what I set my home page to(blank, default, google.com, *****.com), IE ALWAYS opens to this page:

http://runonce.msn.com/runonce2.aspx

And all I see is a blank blue page, with a title bar of "Customize Your Settings"... any idea on how to fix this?
 

Answer:IE won't open to homepage, always opens to "Customize your Settings"

Did you try going to Tools Tab - Reset Web Settings?

The other problem is no matter what page I visit, there is no "windows internet explorer" in the title bar.I'm not sure if this is a virus or just a bug.

I am having the hijacked home page problem that others are having. However, my hijacking started with the "coolwwwsearch" and then went to a "youfindall.net" page that, as described before, cannot and will not be changed to my regular homepage, "youfindall.net" is the page I'm currently stuck on. I have read some of the instructions about downloading the 'Hijack This' program for the 'coolwwwsearch' problem, is this where I start for 'youfindall.net' too? I am a novice to these forums and am quite computer stupid, but, I can follow easily understood instructions. If I do complete the 'Hijack this' instructions and save the log somewhere, (where?), how do I 'show you its contents'? Please be as basic and clear in your instructions as possible. Thanks for the help. ALF64

Is there a way to make Internet Explorer's "New Window" button open my home page instead of the page that I was just on?

I like to open a new window and search something real quick on google (with it big, not using the searchbar in the top right as its tiny up there).

When you open Internet Explorer in a whole other instance, it uses memory that it would otherwise not use had you just opened a "new window".

So, is there any sort of registry tweak, etc. that could make "New Window" open my homepage instead of the page I was JUST on? That's not a New Window... That's the same Window...

Any help would be appreciated, thx.

I think it's a spy or a faulty plugin.

After running every cleanup program and after trying to manualy find the file or link to that page (it says About:Blank but inside the registries is something like "www.the-exit.com" or like "res://%20%20%20%20%20%20%"), i had NO success.

i tried to remove it from registries but every time i run IE6, it is changed back to that "res://%20%20%20%20%20%20%"

Please, help. any info can help me.
 

Answer:The IE6 About:blank opens a "Search For..." page

Hi and welcome to TSG,

Please do this. Click here: http://www.sherrylynn.us/HijackThis.exe to download Hijack This. It’s very important that you save it to its own folder on your hard drive, such as program files (not temporary files or the desktop), so that it can create proper back-ups and be able to restore them if necessary.

Close all open windows and open Hijack This. Click “Scan”. When the scan is finished (it only takes a second), the scan button will change to “Save Log”. Click on “Save Log” and save it to NotePad. Copy the entire log and paste it here.

DO NOT FIX ANYTHING YET, most items that appear in the log are harmless or even needed. Wait for someone to analyze the log and advise.

I followed the instructions for solving this problem at answers.microscoft.com which addressed this issue for IE 11, which is what I (used to) have. Now I do not have IE anywhere or my computer now. (I am using Firefox to post on this board.)

Should I just download IE 11 again, or will that cause more problems?

Answer:"Blank page" instead of home page

Is that URL being seen in Firefox? If so just go to your favorite site and in Options, General tab and click Use current pages. When Firefox 34 installed it set mine to itself there so that will get changed soon. And you don't have to limit it to only one page but most browsers are slower loading when having more than one page set, has to go out to find any others.

I upgraded to IE7 from windows update but when i open it up the runonce page is displayed. However I can't choose other providers for the default search engine and when I click on the green "save settings" box it says "Settings were not able to be saved successfully." Then on the left lower corner of the status bar a yellow exclamation mark is displayed saying "page error". For your information I'm using XP pro SP3. Thanks in advance for your help.

This fix is quite easy.

* Click Start > Run and type the following into the Open box:
gpedit.msc
Click OK.
* Using the left hand pane, navigate as follows:
User Configuration
> Administrative Templates
> Windows Components
> Internet Explorer
* In the right-hand side pane double-click on Prevent performance of First Run Customize settings
* Change the setting for Prevent performance of First Run Customize settings to Enabled and use the drop-down box to select Go directly to home page

* Click OK and close Group Policy
* Restart Internet Explorer 7

There are a couple of other possible fixes.

First involves a registry edit.

* Click Start > Run and type the following into the Open box:
regedit
Click OK.
* Using the left-hand pane, navigate to the following registry key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main
* In the right-hand pane, right-click on RunOnceHasShown and change the value to 1
* Close Regedit and restart Internet Explorer 7

Alternatively, making the following tweak to the trusted sites also seems to work:

* Click Tools > Internet Options
* Click on the Security tab
* Click on Trusted Sites and then the Sites button

* Add the following site to the trusted zone:

I am operating with Internet Explorer and Windows Xp. For years, I have been able to load an internet webpage and save it by selecting "File" then "Save As", which would open a pop up window confirming "Save as type: Web Page, complete *.htm;*.html). I would click to save and it would be saved to my directory by way of two things, the actual html file and then a folder for all the images of that page, as seen below:


I use these files so that I can work offline on my laptop. When I click the html page in that directory, the page will load including all the saved images on that web page as if I was online.

However, lately I am unable to save pages and only get an error when trying to. Take, for example, the page found at this link:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=320174859960

I have ventured to the above link and clicked "File", then "Save as", and get this error:


I have tried endlessly to figure out how else to save this page so as to work on it off-line (including the images) but cannot. Has anybody else ran into this problem or know a work around or fix to this newly saddled dilema I have?

Any direction would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Hi:
This problem is either Networking/connection or XP issue, but I want to find out what's the problem is.

The issue is that whenever start-up PC/XP, 'not connected,' page appears instead Home-Page. After a couple of second, it shows 'now connected' in the rectangular-box at the right bottom of corner of task-bar and I need to click to open 'Home-Page' manually although I set 'I.E.' on start-up to open Home-Page automatically.

It appears to me that my ISP is slow connection, but of course I can not be sure.

How to open up Home-Page, instead seeing 'not connected' page?

Thanks for your help in advance.

Answer:'Not connected' Page instead "Home Page'

You Network Adapter loads last on your computer and it takes up to a minute to connect to the internet. So, everything else is going to load first before you can access a web page. So, if you have IE set to open with Windows, it is going to show a not connected message until you get an internet connection. Better to not have IE load at startup and just be patient. You can also, just leave your computer on and the internet connection always on.

Re: "Only the best" / Home search assistant Variants and Page hijack list

A success story from a total novice (to give others hope)

i had (i say had, but i'm not sure) a variant of this with fkxmn.dll showing up in my browser homepage. It was doing all the same stuff people here have been talking about and I've spent two days chasing it down- and in the process learning about many things including this forum. I ran Search and Destroy and for awhile it identified but was unable to fix something DyFuCA related. But that eventually went away. I installed and ran Ad Aware. It identified and fixed alot of stuff but no help with respect to this thing. I also installed and ran SpyWareBlaster and SpyWareGuard. They kept telling me that soemthing was trying to change my homepage and search pages and write files into the registry (that's apparently what they do). I installed and ran HijackThis and had it fix two things I obviously knew needed the boot because I recognized them as renegade file names. You see, I had noticed that every five minutes, new 9kb programs with all kinds of random four or five letter names were appearing in my windows/system or windows/system 32 folder. I kept delteing them, but new ones would appear. (I had the computer on overnight and there were hundreds of them!) I knew they had to be bogus because they had just appeared in the past 2 days and if I right clicked and looked under properties there was no version tab. So... Read more

One of my users called me over to fix her PC. When she fired up Internet Explorer 7 (IE7) she got the URL res://C:\WINNT\system32\shdoclc.dll/dnserror.htmcoming up at the top and the corresponding screen from IE7 saying that it could not find the page.After running a registry fix (just in case) the problem was still there.Her IE7 was having no difficulty finding any web pages. So, I just changed her home page to google and all was well from then on.Something is worrying me about this as I cannot imagine why the home page would have changed to that in the first place. I tried looking up the URL on google but got so many differing possible reasons for this that my head is spinning from trying to think about it.What I would like to know is this. Am I facing something serious such as a virus or spyware, or is this something else. Also, is it likely to occur again?Can anyone explain this one please?

If you suddenly find that your home page has been reset to "about: blank" and Windows Defender unexpectedly quits, take action quickly.

This can mean that your computer has been infected with the Win32/Banker Trojan, and it's an ugly one because it collects personal information when you visit online banking sites.

I first want to thank you guys for helping me with my previous problem. But it seems as though CoolWebSearch (our best friend) seems to have replaced a bad problem with a less-bad-but-still-annoying one.

My home page keeps changing to a number of .dll files. They all go to the same "Home Search" page that seems to be a Microsoft impostor. Also, the spyware seems to have the ability to make Google open browser windows ("search-to-find.com") every time I enter a search. Then of course there's the "Only the best" pop-ups that appear every once in a while. But the worst thing are the sudden freezes and slow-downs that make browsing the internet a pain.

Before you suggest Spyware or Ad-Aware, I've already tried them numerous times, and they come up with nothing. CWShredder also can't find the problem. I tried both of the Peper Trojan killers, but they said my comp was clean. Not even Hijackthis works...I delete the files, but they're still coming back.

I realize that I need to go into safe mode and take care of something...What I need to know is what and where. Here's my Hijackthis log. Thanks!

I'm having much frustration with my Epson CX3700 and this horrible error message... "Page not printed or Multi-Page error" - this occurs when using Publisher and printing only one page documents! I have ensured only one page is there to print, and even if I select - print only page 1, or print only current page, I still receive this error message! Then that annoying little red light on the CX3700 starts to blink blink blink and to get another page out of it I must shut it down, wait, turn it on, and wait, and print ONE page again!!!! aarrghhhhh....Has anyone encountered this? I am guessing there is a setting somewhere I can change to end this pain but despite my searching and testing (and killing trees in the meantime)  I cannot stop it doing this.One page documents in other programs print fine, as do multi-page documents.I would really really appreciate any feedback on this one! Thanks...

I was at work today and I was in a hurry. I was on a web page which had a complicated link which I needed to remember so I could log onto that site at home. So instead of copying it, I put my USB in and clicked "Save page as" in my web browser thinking that it would save the web page and its link. But it didn't.

I have the web page in front of me but its the saved version and with a web address which is my USB directory (file:///G:/index.cfm.htm... I can navigate away from the page to links on it but I can't submit the online form I needed to submit.

I have tried a keyword search and phoning colleges to find out the site but I have had no success.

How do I find out the actual website of that saved web page

If anyone can help me solve this, I will be forever in your debt.

HELP. Something weird has happened. On my Home page at the top where it says "Search the Web" and I type in the URL (www.aymondfamilytree.com) or ANY web address, there is no longer the "Go" button. The words"Search the Web" are grayed out as well as the word ADDRESS on the same bar. I am using Windows XP, IE 5.5 or 6 ( cannot remember). It is merely a search of anything that contains the words in the URL. I am not referring to the place below that that says MSN Search. I cannot get web site anymore as I used to do when I typed in the URL here. I am very frustrated. You heve helped me in the past so well. I hope you can help me now.

I'm using Windows 98 on a Compaq Deskpro with an Earthlink dialup. Just recently I got the message: "The program ATLIA.EXE has registered the executable C:\WINDOWS\ATLIA.EXE/s to run at system startup..." and the message: "The program NTRN.EXE has registered the executable C:\WINDOWS\NTRN.EXE/s to run at system startup...".
These 2 messages would fire up repeatedly, and now I've got "About Blank" superceding my Earthlink page. So far I've tried SpyBot, SmitFraud, AdAware, Panda live scan. I can't seem to delete the offending .exe files although I can find them. I'd like to learn enough to nail them, as I don't relish the idea of entirely wiping the system again and starting over.

Welcome to Seven Forums bobbot11. Help us understand. When you 1st open IE, it opens to a blank page instead of your home page? Or is opening new tabs that open a blank tab? Or is opening a new window that opens a blank window?

If IE is opening to a blank page instead of a home page you have set, try re-registering IE.

Download the IE Restorator, and choose Re-register 32 bit IE in (whichever version your OS is) W7

Answer:"Home Seach" start page

Hi, Just to get you started out: You need to move the Hijackthis program into a permanent folder>> you also need to get the latest version of it here:

http://tools.radiosplace.com/HijackThis.exe

Just delete the old HJT. Download the v1.98.1 to a folder you create, call it HJT or something you like...create the folder within a permanent folder or put it on the main C: drive it is your option. HJT will not save the backups unless you are running it from a permanent folder or will scatter them all over the place...and they will be deleted when you empty the TEMP folder which must be done during the removal process.
Run Hijackthis from there....and scan and save the logfile as you did before, post it here in this thread, and wait for some expert help.
Are you familiar with using Safe Mode?
The hijack you have is not the easiest to remove but it can be successfully done. You do need some specific directions and need to follow them in order for it to work. The procedure must be done totally start to finish without opening any Internet Explorer windows at all.
Usually, HJT is used first to fix the 02 and 04 random files, ((but not everything in the log at this time!!))...then, AboutBuster run and saving logs...which you must post for review, along with a new HJT log. SO>>> start over, OK?
Just post an HJT log from the newer version.
You do have quite a few things besides the CWS infection, it is also advised that you do not use AdAware or similar before clearing ... Read more

Did you also select Start with Home Page in Startup, directly below where you set your home page? (The other option is to open with the previous session tab and if it was blank, it would do that).

Answer:Home page hijacked by "about blank" - Please help.

I read a thread using CounterSpy to remove this problem, but I use Spybot - Search and Destroy with Immunization activated.
When I try to activate my homepage in IE7, the page is redirected to "safetytool.com" and there is no way to get out of the loop it creates. I can get around it and still function on the internet, but cannot get to my homepage. I am also getting pop-up warning that "whatever named" virus MAY be a danger and that I should immediately download some brand of removal software.
My OS is Windows XP, SP2. I regularly install upgrades as they become available from MicroSoft, so all is up to date. For security, I run Spybot and McAfee. Neither package seems to be able to remove the problem.

Please help.

One of the workstations at my office has had the Home Page "captured" by some kind of data-mining search engine. The employee can reset the home page to her preferred site, but each time she re-enters Internet Explorer, this bogus home page reappears. Most of the sites it wants to search on are porn sites. I've seen this kind of thing before, but most of them at least give a URL. In the case of this one, there is no address line (it says about:blank) and at the bottom of the screen nothing shows either. We don't know how to get rid of this unwanted issue.

Forgive me if I didn't post this correctly - it's my first time here.

Thanks so much!

When I open IE it goes to "about:blank". I went into settings to change it to my home page and it say's it cannot because I am infected with a virus. Then it suggest I run Ad-Aware and Spybot. I have done both but didn't help. In an earlier post here I was told to delete certain line from my HJT log so I did, but these two keep regenerating:

R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://default.home
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://default.home

Here is a current log. I really appreciate any help you can offer.

Yesterday afternoon I was attempting to watch a video, when I clicked on "something" and BAM! my Google Home Page was hijacked and my computer was infected with a malicious virus!

My Google Home Page has been replaced with a fake Security Page with the address: http://pageforsafety.com/. A programme called VirusHeat 4.3 was installed at the same time, but as far as I can tell I've managed to uninstall it. (I have a screen shot of my hijacked Home Page if you'd like to see it.)

I'm constantly getting Security Alert pop-ups, which I assume are part of the virus/spyware. It also won't allow access to other websites. I had to rewrite this post, because the virus kicked me out while I was typing it.

A friend uploaded "HijackThis" for me this morning, and I deleted some of the files on the log, but I didn't really know what I was doing, so hopefully I didn't make matters worse. I have backups of the items I removed.

Whatever I did, didn't help... because I still have the VIRUS!

When I run IE 5.5 (SP 1), it connects to the internet. In the address box it lists by Home page (which is Altavista) it tries to connect to it but after a short time tells me it can't. In the bottom box it says "//c:\windows\system\S4DOCLC>DLL/dnserror.htm...". If I highlight the "www.altavista.com" address in the address box and then hit "GO", it connects correctly. Can anyone suggest a fix?

Once you get to www.altavista.com and you can veiw it correctly click on "Tools", "Internet Options". On the general tab, under "Home Page" click on "Use Current"

Hi, I am having a problem with my newer computer, I just got this rig a few months ago and never had a problem until last Thursday. It Blue Screened on me while I was installing ARC GIS 10.1. From then on it randomly crashes. (I have previously installed ARC GIS 10 and never had a problem.)

I keep things updated (windows and drivers) and I do think windows forced through an update earlier that day. I un installed ARC GIS 10.1 and the windows update, didn't make any difference. I have also ran the Windows Mem test and Auslogic BoostSpeed/ Registry repair. I keep getting "Bad Pool Header" and "Page In Nonpage Area" and I can't seem to find something that triggers it. So far it hasn't crashed in Safe Mode without network access. I tried it once with access and it crashed. Currently have windows checking the drives for errors ( I have 4).

I think I attached the proper dump files. This is my work computer so this is kind of causing a big problem. Thanks in advanced for the help!!

The crash dump you supplied, suggests the display driver failed there.

My homepage changed its self to awesome home page and if you change it back, when you restart your computer, it goes back to awesome home page. I tried the combofix but that didn't work. I have cleaned the computer up with McAfee but that was usless too. Not sure on what to do. Any thoughts? Thank you.
 

Answer:How to get rid of "Awesome home page"

Hi, Welcome to TSG!!
Click here to download HJTInstall.exe

Save HJTInstall.exe to your desktop.
Doubleclick on the HJTInstall.exe icon on your desktop.
By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis .
Click on Install.
It will create a HijackThis icon on the desktop.
Once installed, it will launch Hijackthis.
Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button. It will scan and the log should open in notepad.
Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
DO NOT have Hijackthis fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

I have a machine with an IE homepage that keeps resetting to "www.dell.com".

I have:
changed it in IE, resets immediately
changed it in the registry, it resets n seconds (ie not running).

It only happens on this machine so its not a domain policy.
I have checked the local policy.
I have checked task manager and the advaned settings on Spybot to check what is running and starting up, I cant see anything that isnt legit.

I have disabled the AV and webroot to see if that was doing it, no joy.
When googling it, I have found a few mentions and everyone mentions its a hijack. I have my doubts. Below is the HijackThis log. Anyone have any ideas?

I have read numerous posts about home pages being reset as I have been hit with the same problem.

I have already downloaded HiJack This, but haven't ran it yet as I figured best to ask for some help first.

Yeah... as the above mentions... There are also other processes running multiple items and some that I have never had running before. Malwarebytes has picked up 2 Trojans so far "Trojan.proxy.Bunitu" but hasn't finished the scan yet for me to do anything.

Hi all,

I'm new here, been browsing this forum for a while now and impressed! So I thought I would join, and hopefully help some people out But to start I have my own problem...

It Think it might be problem with the Symantec Endpoint Protection client. But I'm gonna try the RAM first.

I keep getting a BSOD with the error "page fault in non page area" aswell it says "SRTSPL C64.SYS" from a Windows 7 Professional x64 laptop. Just before I'm able to log-in. I am able to boot to Safe mode.

Had a look at the event viewer, with a few things I've found:
Event 1001, Bugchecker - "The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck"
Event 4 SRTSP - "Error loading virus definitions" thought this might be linked in with what was on the BSOD.

I'm unable to upload all the dump files as one is 400Mbs....
So what I've done already:

My first bet is that it's a RAM error, but I ran MEMtest86 for around 30 minutes and it didn't say I had an error..
Also tried a system restore with no success.
Tried most of the advanced options with no success (apart from Safe mode)
Tried SFC /scannow but didn't find anything.
Cleaned out the keyboard with compressed air, just no luck... So now I'm waiting for a RAM stick to hopefully resolve the problem.

Any help?

Thanks
Damian

I've read MANY forums and postings about this problem, and have yet to come across a solution. I am running Vista Home Basic, and when I set certain icons (avast) to "Show" in the "Customize Notification Icons" area, whenever I reboot this setting is back to "Hide When Inactive." Some people say it only happens with icons that change in the system tray. And while that may be true, does anyone know what to do to keep the settings on reboot??

There are some tools you can use.

First is WOT if you don't use it. It gives you a decent indication on whether a site is safe. Its an addon for your browser. Just download for whichever one you use: https://www.mywot.com/en/download Green circle means good, Red means you probably shouldn't go onto the site. Yellow...proceed with caution

Another thing you can do is go here: https://www.virustotal.com/

I am trying to do something which I found very simple in Word 2003 and 2007, but which is stumping me in Word 2010 even after half an hour.

I have a four page document, nothing fancy in it, just text, a few bullet points etc. I now want to add the following to each page:

-- in the upper right hand corner, in 9 point Calibri font, underlined, this header: "John Smith Bio, page [x] of [y]" where x is the current page number and y is in this case always 4.

(If making it automatically know there are 4 pages is a stretch, I can live for now, as I'm in a hurry, with "John Smith Bio page [x] of 4")

It would take quite a while to describe everything that I've tried. All the templates, wizards etc seem to let me do everything except what I want. What look like they are blue fields in Design mode don't seem to let me type anything in them.

Could someone please take pity and just tell me, step by step, what to do? I'd be very grateful. This is rather time-sensitive.

When I try to go to the same page as the working browser I get the samel thing. It's like the second browser is not connectted to the internet. After shutting down both browsers several times and even rebooting sometimes, it will eventually work fine.

Answer:'Page Fault in nonpaged Area" AND "Driver Irql not less or equal"

Maybe faulty memory

Hi,

The culprit is faulty memory. You can run memtest to stress the ram. If memtest reports the ram is faulty, ram is bad. However Memtest is not a perfect tool to test the memory as some faulty ram can pass memtest.

Suggestion
1. Check the temperature of the CPU and make sure that it is not overheat (ie temperature < 60C)
Make sure that the CPU fan works properly
2. Reseat the memory stick to another memory slot. Reseat video card as well.
3. Downclock the ram. Check to default setting if you video card is overclocked.
4. Clean the dust inside the computer case
5. Make sure that the ram is compatible to the motherboard
6. Check the bios setting about memory timing and make sure that it is on
For example : DIMM1 and DIMM2 do not have the same timing.
DIMM1: Corsair CMX512-3200C2 512 MB PC3200 DDR SDRAM (2.5-3-3-8 @ 200 MHz) (2.0-3-3-7 @ 166 MHz)
DIMM2: Corsair CMX512-3200C2 512 MB PC3200 DDR SDRAM (3.0-3-3-8 @ 200 MHz)
DIMM3: Corsair CMX512-3200C2 512 MB PC3200 DDR SDRAM (3.0-3-3-8 @ 200 MHz)
7. Make sure that your PSU have adequate power to drive all the hardware including USB devices
8. Run chkdsk /r at command prompt
9. Run 3DMark 2005 to test your video card
10. Upgrade BIOS

If it still crashes, diagnostic which memory stick is faulty
Take out one memory stick. If windows does not crash, the removed memory stick is faulty.
If you have only one memory stick, replace the ram

In the past I did some tinkering on setting up start up, now this happens every time. "This PC" folder opens up every time along with my Google Chrome browser. I have Windows 8. I tried opening MSCONFIG and task mgr. to locate it but it doesn't show. I'm thinking I may have to adjust a registry item but I'm not positive on what exactly to change or how to. Thanks for any help!

Answer:"This PC" opens automatically on start up - can't stop it

MSCONFIG doesn't show startup items in Windows 8 and above, they are listed in Task Manager instead. You can view and manage startup items and scheduled tasks using CCleaner. Download and install it, open it and click Tools > Startup. Look under the Windows and scheduled tasks tabs to inspect all active/enabled items and the commands they execute. The item you are looking for is most likely running "explorer.exe".

This may be a sign of a Virus... But before you get into that, check your Startup Items, and see if you have Explorer.exe listed twice in the startup items in Task Manager, if you see 2 instances of it, disable one of them.

If there are no instances there, then check your Startup folder - I'll have to think of the path to get there, I'll post it once I find it.

Check in your Task Scheduler as well, if you see any extra Explorer.exe, just disable them.

Not sure what you're trying to accomplish. Current Registry values can't harm anything. I don't know anyone who did a change there.

Hi !

My comp has win xp home and IE7.

"internet options -> connections -> lan settings -> automatically detect settings" is checked. However, when I use IE I get "cannot display the webpage" error. At the same time, other browsers like FF and Safari works.

If I uncheck and then check "automatically detect settings" again, IE starts working.

How can I fix this issue?

Thank you for your help.

Answer:"Internet options - automatically detect settings" needs a recheck

Normally, nothing should be checked in LAN Settings.

Problem description: Basically, I woke up this evening to a computer that could not access the internet. The diagnose tool came up with nothing, (despite the exclamation point over my connection in the toolbar) so I went into device manager and discovered a whole host of errors. 3 Microsoft ISATAP adapters and 8 WAN miniport devices along with my realtek card were under error 31 with a yellow exclamation point. I did an avast scan which found and deleted 2 bitcoin mining viruses, which was weird as I hadn't noticed anything untoward when I went to bed. After the attempted fixes below, (mostly the reinstal of my lan drivers) my realtek says it's working fine in device manager (the other 12 things are still under errors) but now when I diagnose my connection it says windows can't automatically detect my proxy settings. I did not set up any proxies.

Attempted fixes: Full system scan of avast, netsh commands in cmd, flushdns, reinstalling lan drivers, reinstalling chipset drivers, looked in both firefox and windows network/internet options to make sure that no proxies are enabled. None are. Can't do a system restore either as I seem to have only one restore point that doesn't work. In the properties of my adapter ICP 4 & 6 both have have obtain IP and DNS address automatically checked, in the advanced tab DHCP is enabled and automatic metric is checked.

Recent changes: No hardware changes recently.

I'm using my old laptop now. On my regular laptop, my internet icon has the yellow triangle and when I trouble shoot it, the message says "Windows could not automatically detect this network's proxy settings".

Any idea what the problem? I googled it and none of the solutions seem to help. I think my computer is infected with malware right now. It is heating up quickly and I'm seeing ads in text in websites that don't do that (cbc, reddit, wikipedia). I had this issue a couple of months ago but Spybot seemed to fix the issue.

Recently I noticed my computer was heating faster (and hotter) than usual so I ran a search again and it said no threats were found. Not too long after I start noticing the ads again so I know there is a problem. I have ran the search twice since then and still nothing. I was advised to use ccleaner, malwarebytes, and Super Anti-Spyware. It removed one other threat but the problem was still there. I then started using combofix, but I did not like the look of it so I stopped that scan. It seemed a little sketchy.
As of this morning, I'm having the internet problem. My old laptop (the one I'm on now) and my girlfriend's laptop work fine. I connected it with the Ethernet cord and that didn't change anything.

I have Windows 7. It's on a 2010 Samsung (I'm not very tech savvy so I'm not sure about all the other details). I primarily used Firefox, but I just switched to Googlechrome this w... Read more
