Yankee Clipper III looses its boilerplates

Question: Yankee Clipper III looses its boilerplates

I am using Yankee Clipper III (YC3) under Win7 64bit. Occasionally it looses the boilerplates and I can't get them back other than by recreating them. Under Win XP, according to what I have been able to find, the boilerplates are kept in Program Files/YCIII. That doesn't seem to the the case for Win 7. I have restored the YCIII portion of Program Files X86 from a True Image Backup but the boilerplates are still not there.

Will someone please help me get around the problem of having to recreate the boilerplates each time YC3 looses them?

Thank you very much.

Question: Yankee Clipper III

I don't know why, but I can never seem to understand the software instructions. I can get stuff to YC by highlighting it and clicking Edit>Copy, just like usual before I had YC. (I am surprised that the instructions don't say how to get stuff to the Clipboard.) But then how do I paste the stuff, say, in a document I am composing in MS Word? If you don't mind, I need the instructions you would give to a kindergartener. Thanks, grandpaw
 

Answer:Yankee Clipper III

If it is a Windozs app all the Windoze shortcut keys should apply

Ctrl + C = Copy
Ctrl + X = Cut
Ctrl + V = Paste

Question: Yankee Clipper fix

My YC has been dropping clippings. The YC website had me download a fix for that. Where I am now is that I have renamed to old YankClip.exe file to read YankClip.exeold, and now my YankClip[1] folder shows that old renamed file with a MS icon and the new file with a YC icon, just as was the case with the old file before I renamed it.

The YC instructions tell me to “Get the ZIP, stop the program, rename the old EXE, and finally copy the new file into the installation directory”. I wasn't sure at what point I was supposed to stop the program, I presume meaning the zip program, and how I was to do that, so what I did was to rename the old EXE first, and then download the new one without interrupting the program

Does what I did amount to “copying the new file into the installation directory"?

Since YC dropped clippings only sporadically, I am wanting to find out now if I did the fix right rather than just wait to see if the dropping problem happens again.

Thanks, grandpaw7
 

Answer:Yankee Clipper fix

Hiya

From what I'm reading, when they say 'stop the program', that may have been the YC program, not the zip.

The way I read it is as this..

Download the zip. Stop the YC program from running. Rename the exe to old, either like what you have done, or as YankClip.old, then open the zip, and extract the new exe into the same folder.

Is that what you did?

Regards

After getting my new XP computer, I downloaded the clipboard utility Yankee Clipper, which I used a lot on my older computer. However, I found out I downloaded the wrong version rather than the one I wanted and was used to. So I uninstalled it yesterday morning and instead installed the version I wanted. Then, I got to messing around trying to get YC on my startup and Quick Launch. Somehow, I messed things up so that YC wouldn't work. So I attempted to uninstall this second version of YC (the one I wanted). Add/Remove went through the usual procedure as though the uninstall worked fine. But it didn't. YC was no longer in Add/Remove, but it was big as life everywhere else although it still worked poorly. Then, I used System Restore to go back to yesterday morning before I uninstalled the version I didn't want. I wanted to start all over. So I tried to uninstall that version so I could newly install the good version. But now the bad version won't uninstall. When I try to do that via Add/Remove, I get a Wise Uninstall error saying "Could not open INSTALL.LOG file.

I have no idea what to do now. For one thing, I wonder if the error message means that the Add/Remove program now won't work for anything, or if that error message just applied to YC. I've thought about downloading free uninstaller but I prefer not to do anything till I can get some expert input.

Thank, grandpaw

I have used Yankee Clipper for a number of years now and it has been a great deal of help to me, largely because of its simplicity. But after I got XP the YC icon on my System Tray started to disappear, not always, but when it did I couldn't find a way to get the YC window to display. When I would click on the YC icon on my desktop or go to YC in Windows Explorer, I would get a message that YC was already running and to look at the System Tray (where the YC icon was no longer there).

YC told me that the problem must have something to do with XP, but couldn't say what. YC suggested that I click Ctrl/Alt/Y. That sometimes brought up the YC screen but not always. It didn't restore the icon to the System Tray.

I wonder if anyone has a suggestion as to what might be the problem and how I can solve it.

Answer:Disappearing Yankee Clipper icon

Perhaps it's not in your startup and should be (and used to be)?

Hit Start-->Run and type msconfig and hit enter.
Go to the Startup tab.
Do you see anything that resembles Yankee Clipper?
If you do and it is NOT checked, check it.
If you don't, reinstall Yankee Clipper. See if you're asked if you want it to start when Windows starts (or to put an icon in the system tray) and say "yes".

Answer:ca-clipper 5.3b for dos/windows

OMG! My first job in the computer field! I was the install guy for a point of sale/accounting software for specialty gift shops, which was written in Clipper for DOS. Had to setup that program on point of sale computers for the front, and in the workstations in the office for the accounting part. They kept using the DOS version til past Win98 days, when I left that company. When I first got there they were using Artisoft LANtastic for the networking, on coax.

Pig of a DOS program, had to learn the art of fine tuning config.sys to get conventional memory up past 600.

The owners of the software company used to raise pit bulls...one of them came to the office every day, sorta the mascot of the office. His name was Clipper.

Anyways, I'm not a programmer, I'm a networking guy, but from what I remember in the days before I left that company, the programmers there were having a hard time migrating their program to a native Windows backend.

I believe Clipper for DOS remained for DOS
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clipper_(programming_language)
and one of the projects designed to migrate it to Windows almost made it..

I want to take a playable section out and delete the rest..like at specific start and end times and everything and then have a playable piece.

Don´t expect to see them if you type the SET command, but they are initialized and the clipper program will read them.

Answer:BackDoor-CJO, AD-Clipper & downloader-OX

I was seeing McAfee return Downloader-OX and two other adware / virus threats. If you will look in the far right of the McAfee notification window (at least with McAfee Enterprise Edition) you will notice what applications are causing you the trouble.

I couldn't see anything in my startup files - either through regedit or Hijackthis! - I simply deleted the infected files (which turned out to be mplayer.exe and TELNET.EXE) and Windows XP restored them.

I'll let you know if I run across anything else, but I seem to be running clean. McAfee seemed to catch the infection before it spread, but everytime I ran Media Player the virus seemed to try and reactivate. Telnet.exe seemed to be automatically being called at points, but after deletion and recreation I haven't seen the problem return.

This issue must be new enough to not have very many posts. McAfee's VIL was no help whatsoever

I maintain some legacy programs written under dBase and compiled with Clipper.I have a couple of problems when running under some versions of Windows ? especially XPNormally the key-code for the left arrow key is identical to Ctrl-S> - both, when tested with a utitlity, are correctly shown as being ASC 19However, when running in a virtual DOS environment, while the left-arrow key works fine, the Ctrl-S> is ignored. I assume that Windows is intercepting the code for some other purpose.Using the Properties of the desktop shortcut to the DOS environment, I have tried various combinations of Compatibility (for Windows) and disabling the Windows Shortcut keys, but no still solution is found.Secondly: the programs frequently use the higher ASCII codes to build boxes on-screen. These generally work fine, but on occasion ? and I can find no reason for why this only happens sometimes ? the characters get mis-interpreted and produce other graphics characters.Would be grateful if anyone knows a solution ? especially to the key-code issue - or even just a pointer to someone who might know.Many thanksDr Philip Ramage

Answer:Porting dBase/Clipper Source Code And Files

Are you asking if there's any way of automatically converting the source code or you asking whether you you should rewrite the application. Codebase will not convert an XBase DOS program to a windows program. From what I understand Codebase is a library that allows you to manipulate XBase databases (DBase, Clipper, Paradox etc) with a windows language such as Visual Basic.

Now that I've upgraded to Win 8.1 my computer looses network connectivity several times a day. I can't even ping other devices on my local network. Rebooting the computer makes the problem go away (for a while). Its this computer running 8.1, none of the other computers on the network (running Win 7 or android) have the problem at the time this computer can't connect.

This is not good! If there's a way to refresh the network connection (some control panel function) that would be a not-very-good work around. Other than that it may be time to go back to Win 7.

Are others having this problem? Any suggested solutions?

Answer:Win 8.1 looses network connectivity

Just to be clear, you were running Win 8 and everything was OK and the problem only started when you upgraded via the Windows store to 8.1; correct? The reason I'm asking is because all of your other OK references are to Win 7 so I can't make the connection.

I think I'm having a similar problem to this. My monitor has gone blank then 'no signal detected' multiple times now. First time was a week ago - I turned it off and then turned it on again a while later and all seemed well. Then it happened again last night - tried to do the same thing and it seemed to work, but then after 5 minutes it occurred again and this time there was like a 'stuck' sound coming from my speakers, which kept getting faster and faster. This morning when I turned the PC on, the monitor wouldn't come on at all, not until the 4th reboot anyway.

I could take a wild guess and blame it on our new Pinnacle PCTV DVB-T Stick, as this problem only started happening after we started using it.

P.S. Should I make a new thread for my problem? Thought it might be useful here.
P.P.S. I'm using XP Pro too, SP2.

Question: clock looses time

About two weeks ago my clock just started to loose time. It will loose about 15 minutes a day. Although the scheduled tasks are still activating on time. I tried changing the battery but it didn't help.
I'm running win98 (verson 4.10.1998) a K/6-2 amd processor on an acer mother board with 64 mb of sdram.
I would appreciate any suggestions that you can give me.
 

Answer:clock looses time

This is a very common problem. It is a software issue.

You can test this, to be sure, by setting the clock and then booting to floppy. Now let it sit at the A prompt all day (obviously not on a day when you need your computer) and then type TIME to check the time. It should be ok.

If it is, we now know the problem is a program you are running.

You can try to pin the program down using MSCONFIG (at Start, Run, type in MSCONFIG) - disable all startup items and reboot. See if the clock starts working ok. If so, go back and turn things on one or two at a time until you find the bad one.

My config:
Intel Core i5 6500 with Intel HD 530
Gigabyte H170 Motherboard
AMD Radeon R9 380

Windows 10 ver.1511 with all latest drivers are installed.

A regular ASUS Monitor is connected through DVI to AMD Radeon Graphics Card and is set as the primary monitor
An HDTV Sharp is connected through HDMI to internal Intel HD 530 and is set as the secondary extended monitor

If I turn off the TV the following happens:
1. The Settings-System-Display shows only one (primary) monitor. The secondary monitor is not detected
2. Windows that were opened on the secondary screen are moved to the primary screen. They stay on the primary screen when the TV is turned back on.
3. Icons on the primary screen desktop are moved from the far left to the far right of the desktop. Icons are moved back when the TV is turned bank on.

This is definitely not the expected behavior.
Here is how it worked on my old desktop:

I took a guess and put it under software, but I don't know what this might be.
I've a weird mouse problem... I was just using my computer one day when suddenly the cursor began "lagging" and the internet page began jumping up... Then the cursor stopped responding to the mouse... I restarted and the mouse still didn't work.. I shut the computer down, waited a few seconds and turned it on again, still no change... Only when I completely shut it off, including disconnecting it from the electricity does the cursor comes back to life.
Whenever it stops responding, when I go to control panel>mouse and go to the Hardware tab I see that there's no device listed there.. After doing the above the device is listed there again.
I can't point out when it happens because it appears to be random. Every time it happened I was using the internet, but then again I do that half of the time so I don't know if that has anything to do with it..

What do you think? Why does my computer looses the mouse?

I have Win XP professional,
Albatron K8X800 Motherboard.
It's an optical Umax mouse and it's not connected through USB.
 

Answer:My computer looses the mouse!

have you tried another mouse to eliminate that as the problem?

Hello gang!

Yeah, that?s my problem. I?ve done a lot of maneuvering and reinstalling in order to keep the IRQs separated. The last time I had to change the sound card to a slot that didn?t have a shared IRQ in it. Everything was working o.k. (save the joystick), but I wanted to try it. To make a long story short, everything in this computer is running fine, and no stability problems at all, since I don?t overclock. It?s only that the USB joystick looses calibration after playing for a while. I reboot and everything it?s alright, then history repeats itself. I read something about ?drifting? and values being too high for the CPU to read right. Whatever. Everything has the latest drivers (AFAIK), and like I said, I can be recording in Cubase 5.1 for hours and no stability problems whatsoever. Just for fun I tried a gameport joystick and it always stays right-on (aside from the initial calibration tweaking) even if I play for forty minutes.

This happens in all my games: Motocross Madness 2, F/A-18, Falcon 4, Superbike 2001, Il-2 Sturmovik?dead zone and all doesn?t work, since the problem only starts after a few minutes (with USB).

I?m not sure if tweaking will make a difference since I read here that USB requires so much computing power to not take a toll with games. If anyone has any ideas (or if it has been addressed already in another thread), please let me know.

Athlon 1.2
Jetway 663AS Ultra rev. 3.2
768 RAM ... Read more

Windows 7 Ultimate + NVIDIA GeForce 9400 (latest drivers):

A simple Infocus X16 projector (no drivers) as second monitor looses the image after a view minutes following setup. Till than it works as supposed.

When I try to go into the advanced settings of the 2 display it blacks out for a while, comes back without mouse. Won't restart anymore.

The only remedy till now is to unplug the second monitor and force shut down (pressing power button).

The system works perfectly fine otherwise since a few months under heavy usage.

thanks in advance for any help

Answer:second display looses image

First, make sure all cables and the card is securely fastened. If okay, swap the projector with another monitor - or put the projector on another computer and see if the problem moves too, or stays.

Hi

I'm running Windows XP Professional with SP3 (Version 2002).
The PC is self-built with an AMD Phenom 9950 Quad-Core CPU and 4 GB RAM.

Other relevant hardware is the network card. It's the onboard card on the motherboard using a chip from RealTek. Windows sees this as "Realtek RTL8168C(P)/8111C(P) PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet NIC".
Driver Provider: Realtek Semiconductor Corp.
Driver Date: 30.05.2007
Driver Version: 5.670.530.2007
Digital Signer: Microsoft Windows Hardware Compatibility Publisher


After the computer has been on for some time it will loose connection to the network. At least on TCP. I can send ICMP packets pinging my local gateway and other network hardware. Some times a disable/enable on the network card will work, other times a reboot will clear everything up.

When this error occurs I some times get a message repeatdly logged to the system eventlog:
Event Type: Error

Lastly, when typing in a website in the address bar, it will very often forget websites that I have been to recently.

I have a pentium 4 2GB processor with a stock video card. The screen went blank and I pulled the video card to look at it. The screen is a year old and I am using the DVI port. I plugged my old monitor into its VGA slot and still nothing. So, I bought a new video card the exact same as the one I have that isn't working. Still nothing from both the DVI port and VGA port. I can't see the screen at all. I recently put new memory stick in it, but it worked just the same before/after install..... What now?

Hi all,I have already looked through these forums using the search function and found posts close to this issue but nothing that was right on the mark. That said I may of missed something.We have seven x61t machines where I work that all have their own ultrbases and each exhibits the same odd behaviour. Each machine is running Vista Enterprise.Basically if you boot the machine up whilst it is docked and USB function contected to the base will work. Such as external usb drives, keyboard and mouse. If you undock the machine and work with it undocked and then re-dock the machine with the base you will  loose the usb devices in the base.That is the power and external monitor will work without any issues. But the keyboard, mouse and any other usb device attached to the base will no longer function. I have tried to get around this issue, but so far the only fix (pain in the you know where) is to reboot the machine whilst docked.Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

First I apologize if this has been mentioned and a solution already posted.. searched, but couldn't find an answer.

I have a home network, desktop running Vista Ultimate with a hard connection to a linksys-n wireless router and a laptop running Vista Home Premium. Network Discovery is on for both computers and the printer is wired to the desktop. Both the desktop and laptop have all permissions fully enabled and all drives are fully shared

Nothing has changed on desktop or laptop (software or hardware) other than normal Windows updates and network has been up and running for over a year. When I go to network and click on the desktop computer "HOME", the laptop can see and access all 5 drives and the printer. If I've re-booted the laptop, all I have to do is go to network and click on the desktop name and log in with the desktop ID and password, and again, everything on the desktop is visible and the printer is accessible.

Now, starting a couple of weeks ago, I can see the desktop name on the laptop, but can't connect... and after a few minutes the following error message pops up

\\HOME is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this
network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if

Good morning / afternoon / evening everyone. I recently bought a Lenovo thinkpad L450. As a long time linux user, I installed debian GNU/Linux Testing on this lovely machine. However, there is something that really bothers me. I prefer having to press Fn to access media keys instead of pressing Fn to access Fx keys. I've tried to enable the function keys swap thingy in the UEFI. It didn't work. I also tried to lock Fn via Fn+Esc. This technique works only during the session in which I've enabled the FnLock. If I reboot, the Fn isn't locked anymore, and I have to relock it to enjoy a decent user experience. I've noted thaat the Fn looses it's locked state as soon as the linux kernel is loaded. I think there might be a problem with a kernel module but I'm unsure. So I'm stuck there.

>My Satellite C650 looses power, there is a loud click from the speakers and then the screen goes black.
Does it mean notebook is powered off or the screen just stays black?
On this virtual way it is not easy to say what is wrong there. You must make some basic tests.
For instance start notebook, enter BIOS settings and leave it for a while to see if notebook will switch off from alone.
Try also to start OS in safe mode to see if the same will happen again.

You can also try to back up all your important data and reinstall OS using recovery image just to see if the same problem persists with ?factory settings?.

Test all this and post some feedback.

Greetings!

I have a problem with my Vista computer, that keeps dropping the internet connection. It has not always been like this, but started some weeks ago.

The computer I use is Acer Aspire 8920 with Windows Vista home premium 32 bit SP1. Im using Norton Internet Security 2009.

::How the problem behaves::
Suddenly I cant access internet or very very slowly with my browser. MSN messenger cant recieve or send messages and Microsoft Outlook wont work either.

::What I have tried so far::
1. Wait - Well it seems like internet starts working after a while again, before going down.
2. Turn of NIS (no windows firewall running either) - still no connection
3. Repair connection with vista - says that there is no problem
4. Different browser when connection is down - doesnt work, same problem for them all
5. Contact ISP to check ADSL for any sync problem - After 2 days monitoring, no problem found
6. Tried different computer that is connected to the same network (both 1 with Vista and one with XP, both works fine while this one is down.
7. Tried new network cable (that is directly connected to the modem/router)
8. Upgraded firmware in Zyxel modem/router (one device) P-660HW-D1, nothing changed.
9. Unplugged network cable and turned on wireless that connects to the same router (mention above), did not help.
10. Disables IPv6, no improvement
11. Disabled TCP Checksum Offload for both IPv4 and IPv6 - no change.
12. Reinstalled network card (not the wireless one,... Read more

Answer:Vista looses internet connection

You should uninstall Norton Internet Security. Any internet security package does not work especially well with Vista.

Use the Norton Removal Tool http://service1.symantec.com/Support...05033108162039

Save the relevant tool to your desktop and then right-click it > Run as Administrator. Reboot when done.

Reset Windows Firewall to its default settings. Start > type "firewallsettings.exe" > click on the Firewall Settings. Restore to default.

Download AVG, or Avira, or many other free but just as good Antiviruses.

For a couple of days (and obviously because something that I must have done to my installation), XP is loosing the view option of my displayed window. I take a given window pointing to a folder as a link, re arrange cols on the desktop, make it display as 'Details', make some changes using Tools/Folder options/View such as 'Do not cache thumbs' apply it and then click on the 'Apply to all folders', it tells me that they'll do so when I next display them. Well, they don't. Go into IExplorer and when I return to my Desktop, they windows that I open sometimes show as Thumbnails, sometimes as Icons, sometimes as Tiles ... Have no idea as to why, but obviously there is something in the background which is not right. Everything else is working fine (no informative messages in Event log either). Any ideas?

Hi, my brother has been having some problems staying connected to my HDD through a wireless network. My HDD has loads of videos and music files and i thought it would be best to share them and not continuesly burn them to a DVD..
But every time he opens any media player to play a file across the network, a error message pops up "network or path file not found". Somtimes he is able to play 2mins of any file then this error will occur...

I was thinking, what if i buy some network cable and run a direct link, pc-pc. Will i be able to still have the wireless network running on both pc's and have this connection between them or will there be some kind of conflict.

The internet is connected though the wireless router so i kind of need the wireless, i know this problem has nothing to do with the wireless network cuse we are able to play LAN games with no problem.

Assuming you both have an RJ45 plug on your networking cards you should be able to do a direct connection. You need to make sure you buy a cross-over cable. If you buy a standard networking cable it will not work.

BTW: It could very well be the wireless connection. When you are gaming there isn't as much data being sent over the network as there is when he is streaming music/video. If possible, try to place the wireless router closer to his PC to see if the problem persists.

I have a Dell inspiron 531 with Vista. I originally set this up on a network with a Linksys BEFW11S4 router and two other computers, a Dell XP SP and a Gateway ME all wired to the ports of the router. The Vista machine would intermittently loose the ability to use the internet and the other computers on the network. (No problems with either of the other two computers) dell support told me that my problem was with the router because it was too old. I then purchased a Linksys WRT54GS and set up the three computers on the network. I am still having problems with the Vista machine loosing the ability to use the internet or find the other computers in the network.

I have Computer Associates anti virus, anti spyware, anti spam and firewall from Time Warner.

I have spent numerous hours on the phone with Dell support to fix the problem with no luck. I have tried everything that they can find to fix the problem and now am being told that I have to do a system recovery.

I have put ?LocalGroup? in ?Administrators? with no luck.

I am hoping that someone in this forum can help me so that I don?t have to do the system recovery and loose everything that I have setup on the computer.

Signing out of AIM is a frequent action that looses the internet but not always. Sometimes it just stops working.

Thank you in advance.

Answer:internet looses connection in vista

I have been able to solve this problem on my own. I had a minor pronlem within the firewall which was causing the internet to time out. Also, Microsoft has a hotfix (KB929547) which will increase the browsing speeds back to normal.

XP mode has reset/forgot my logon details. I had previously removed the password in the virtual pc control panel and enabled guest account and had used xpmode for a month with no problems. One day when i booted it up it asked me to log on which was strange as it always loads up straight to the desktop usually. The user name it brought up was XPMUser and no password i tried worked. Also the guest account was disabled. I tried the username/password combination I set up when installing xpmode with no sucess. Using the username XPMUser no password I tried works. I have tried: admin, user, administrator, the password i set up originally with xpmode and my host PC password. I tried the previous passwords in combination with usernames: admin, administrator, user and my host pc username. When i tried the username Administrator it said "Your account has been disabled. Please see your system administrator " I cannot log on to XP mode. It seems to have defaulted to some built in password. Is there any way to get into it or do I have to reinstall xpmode and loose everything? EDIT: Sorted! if anyone else has this problem, click on settings and disable integration features then use username XPMUser without a password and that will log you on

Answer:Windows 7 XP mode looses password

When I ready to provide suggestion, I noticed the "EDIT".
 
As you said, we can disable Integration Features to show it as a general virtual machine so that we can log on the user account. Meanwhile, Administrator account is disabled by default, we can enable it now incase we need to log on it next time.

On a daily basis, my PC monitor's colors change and I discovered that red disappears. My PC has Nvidia Desktop Manager that appears to control the colors on the screen. Any advice or comments would be appreciated.
 

Answer:Monitor regularly looses color 'Red'

The most common cause is a cable partially plugged in (the video cable between the PC and the monitor) or a faulty pin in it.

Second most common is an electronic fault in the red gun circuitry in the monitor, often a poorly soldered joint (that can cost more than the moitor is worth to discover).

I have a server (Windows Server 2003) that randomly looses connection with the default gateway and anything on the outside. When this happens, the server can’t ping the gateway (A Juniper SSG5 firewall/router) and the gateway can’t ping the server. But the server still can ping anything else on the network and everything inside the network works fine with it. The most reliable remedy is to reboot the router. Rebooting the server or resetting the network card sometimes helps. I have tried both onboard network cards and a separate PCI network card on the server. There are no router log entries that correspond to the problem. This server is used as a Terminal Server for a remote office and as a file server.
 

Answer:Server looses connection to gateway only

A reset of TCP/IP appears to have solved the problem.

I have no idea if this is the correct forum, if it isn't please move it.

I have a HP Pavilion dm1 laptop. When I switch to battery I lose colors. Light greys turn to white etc. I think this is a power saving measure but it is really annoying. This does not occur when I am using my power adapter.

Does anyone know what this is and where I can disable it?
 

Answer:Screen looses colors on battery?

There are about 59 different laptops with the number you gave. The real model number is on the bottom of the unit. Is it 32 bit or 64? In any case you can go to Control Panel, Power Options and see what is in the various plans.

Hey, I tried to post this issue in network forums, but got no support there, and though it may rather belong in here.

I've got a very annoying problem which been bugging me for a while now. The issue is that my browser (Firefox / Chromie) looses it's connection to Internet every 10-20 mins, and stays dead for about half a minute. Then everything works fine again.

The weird thing is that it's only browser which can't connect to the Internet, if I am downloading anything, or talking over Skype, it doesn't get interrupted at the time bworser shows "Page load error".

I am running Windows Xp sp3, with Kaspersky firewall, to a thomson router, and have a custom VPN via ivacy.com, which however is turned off at the moment browser goes nuts, and I think problem began before I installed VPN.

Answer:Browser looses internet connection.

Since you are already getting support from the network forum I am going to close this thread, but am willing to help you on the network forum.

Here is the link to the other thread.

Cheers!

Everytime I load panda platinum 2005, the internet (broadband) is down until I uninstall it and restart. I tried researching this on the panda site and tried installing their latest stuff but still, no luck. Their tech support seems to be non existant or else I would have called them by now. Also, I forgot to mention, when the firewall is installed, their is an error on it; probably another symptom of this problem because when I don't install the firewall, I have the same problem with the net. I just worked with Cheeseball81 on the malware part, and the system seems to be clean but with the same panda problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sorry to post this question. I see it gets asked a lot, but rarely ever gets solved. I don't have the model of my router off hand. Didn't think it would be important since this phenomenon seems to happen on all different types of routers including the older linksys wireless b I used to have and the new b/g/n that I have now. Anyway my ISP is Comcast and every day or so my wireless goes out and then I have to unplug the router and plug it back in to get it up and running again. There are no other wireless devices running around the router to cause interference. And this affects all my wireless devices so I'm assuming the problem is a setting with the router. All the wired network devices work flawlessly.

Thanks for the help

Mike
 

Answer:Wireless Router Looses Connection

What happens if you connect to the router by cable does that disconnect ?

make and exact model would be useful

would you post the following tests when its working OK and then repeat ALL the tests when it disconnects and make sure you also tells which tests posted are for what condition

if you are also connected by wireless include the xirrus screen shots

Please post bake here the make and exact model of the router and if separate, the make and exact model of the modem

Also please make a note of the status of the light on the modem and on the router when working normally - post back here and then when disconnected post the status of the lights here again if changed

I updated on my Asus K750JN laptop the Nvidia and Intel drivers from the Asus site and following that my Touchpad looses its settings every time the laptop goes to sleep / logoff / or reboots.

Then I removed the Touchpad driver from the Device mgr and try to re install it but I get this message: “There is a problem with this window installer package. A program run as part of the setup did not finish as expected. Contact your support personnel”

I downloaded the Touchpad driver again from Asus but get the same message.

How can I re install this driver?
 

Answer:Solved: Touchpad Looses Settings

Roll back the initial drivers update, then do a system restore to just before those installs and see if that helps.

Have XP pro using wireless broadband on Bigpond , Australia. After about 20 minutes of surfing looses connection to internet ie FireFox advises connection reset or Internet Explorer advises unable to connect. Wireless modem lights are usually flashing though sometimes the data activity light is solid when the problem occurs. The connection manager displays ip address and 'connected' and will allocate a new ip address when reconnected though sometimes it may not reconnect. If modem reconnected ok then browser will not reconnect to homepage. Needs a PC restart to connect. Problem occurs in both Internet Explorer and FireFox.

Before I buy a new wireless modem, I wish to chech for malware. Note that the gmer.exe advised rootkit activity

Hi, I own this model since May 2013, and all this time I have this problem: In my drivers list the NVidia GeForce Mobile sometimes is present and most of the time not.When it suddenly appears it will stay for a few days or weeks and I can play all the modern games happily. But then something will happen computer will reboot and the driver is no longer in the list, and for month until it will appear suddenly again. This already happened about 5 times. Unfortunately I cannot go to the repair because I bought this device in Taiwan and now I am in rural Russia. I suppose it might be a microcrack in the PCB or maybe a bad sensor or a bad cable, who knows. This is definitlely not a driver or software issue. Or is it? Any ideas?  This device is very good, but without GeForce it looses about 25% of it's value.

I have an Aspire | M     it has never reliably connected to the internet!  It drops the connection if I am wired or wireless. Then it will not connect unless restarted and tonight not even then.  It did this from the day I got it.  I sent it back to ACER,  which I should not have done,  they should have given me a new computer.  They said it needed a new hard drive (WHICH MADE NO SENSE!).  They put that in and I had to restore all my work,   It worked for a few weeks and then the disconnects started again.  AT this point it is the worst laptop I have ever owned. I paid over $600 for someting that has never worked.   On top of that the mouse pad never works well.The mouse pad is the "all one piece design"  to click it you have to get your finger in the far left bottom edge or frequently it will not respond.  The two issues are enough to drive you crazy.  I bought this 10-6-13 nearly 2 years ago so ACER can blow me off but it has NEVER worked and they never fixed it. At this point I have no idea what to do. If they can make the damned Lan Adapter work, I can live with the crappy mouse but I refuse to be stuck with a $600 LEMON.  CAn anyone offer a recommendation?Joe
