Preferred Solution: what the heck went wrong with edge ?

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.)

Plus the Cpu usage has gone up alot, it usually is around 2% usage but nowadays its up to 60%! in task manager, "System Idle Process" is taking up 52% which it normally doesnt..., "csrss.exe" is taking up 11%, and "cmd.exe" is taking 25%. Also, not sure if its the problem but I have 3 "svchost.exe" things running.

Hi
I hope someone can help me ... again.
I woke up this morning and went to log backon my computer and nothing.
The monitor light was on, the screen was black,,, and the computer was off. I leave it on over night... and just log the user out.
I tried rebooting and it didnt help. i had a hard time geting the "on" button to go green but it finally did. The fans seem to work. I did notice that my keyboard light was off, but my mouse light was on.
I switched monitors and it showed no power source. After unplugging and replugging everything, even reseating the memory chips... I still cannot get it working.
I had a new HD that I tried to connect but it never even brought up the screen to go to BIOS.
any suggestions?
Thanks
 

Answer:What the heck went wrong now?

Do you get any POST beeps? If not then I would suspect either the video card or the power supply. So I would first take the video card out to see if it gave a normal POST beep. If it didn't I would next take out the RAM - IF it POSTs then it is the video that has failed and if not almost certainly the power supply Unit.

For the last few days I haven't been able to send any emails. I can log in to hotmail, get into my inbox, but then when I want to send someone an email that's when the problem starts. I can get the address in the "To" area, then when I tab down to the page to compose the email, a few letters in and this yellow bar pops up right across the whole area with the send/save draft etc...options and then proceeds to freeze. This is what the bar says.....Windows Live Hotmail was unable to complete this request. Microsoft may contact you about any issues you report.

WHAT THE HECK.

I have a toshiba C650D satellite laptop/windows 7/firefox. I can use my hotmail on my oldy moldy desktop using firefox/windows xp. Like I said....WHAT THE HECK.

Hi
I installed windows 10 version 1607 (14393.82) and i got to know that Microsoft is now releasing new versions every f***** 15days. The Wikipedia page shows a list of changes that new build version has. I am just so much frustrated here. It means that every version has a huge number of bugs which Microsoft is patching via the response from Preview Build Insider Program.
Why doesn't Microsoft release ONE BIG version after 6 months or so, so that the user is not bombarded with the huge number of updates in the background eating away all the bandwidth when user is doing something important and comes to know that this shitty windows is downloading it's feature updates.
I have ticked "defer feature updates" but it is quite frustrating that a new version comes after every 15 days. I mean, is Microsoft really that much into shits?

I was very happy with windows 7 and i am really seriously thinking of going back to windows 7. It's just a hoax created by marketing about security, malware hacks and blah blah blah blah.

Answer:What the heck is wrong with Microsoft?

If you haven't already, you should stop getting new Insider builds to only get the stable builds.

I really hate Windows XP Pro sometimes. Just finished a new build tonight, downloaded all updates and set Windows to adjust for best performance and put the classic start menu back. For some reason, everytime I restart the computer the standard XP (big green start button, blue taskbar) theme comes back but. I go and look at the performance settings and it's still set to "adjust for best performance". I have to click on another option, then back on adjust for best performance, then click apply before I get my standard, no frills, gray taskbar back. What gives? I've never had this happen on my laptop running XP Pro, but it is 4 years old so it never came with SP2. I'd really appreciate feedback on this. Thanks.

Hey Tech Help Guys,

I am having a major problem with my computer.

I have an issue with the machine making this funny noise in my headphones about 5 minutes after its been on and completeley locking up to the point where doing any work is simply impossible.

It makes a funny scratching noise in the headphones then hangs. It only happens when I have Firefox going or so I can tell.

I have a wierd situation also with the network. I am a student and the SMU network has to verify your comuter before they allow it onto the network. I have run the validation and it allowed me on. However, every time I turn the computer on it tries to revalidate my system. It wont let me on the Internet for about 30 secs then all of the sudden the Internet works perfectly again. I am extremeley frustrated and in dire need of help.

Thanks in advance.

Hello everyone, there's something going on with my laptop right now. Everything was working perfectly till today. I don't know what's the problem, but I can describe to you guys what's going on, and hopefully that'll help me fix this.

So when I turn on the laptop and my wi-fi, usually there will be a blue bubble that goes with my internet icon (looks like one monitor on top of the other) that signifies that I am connected to the network. Now there appears a red X, which usually tells me that I'm not connected to a network. Ok... so the wierd thing is, I AM connected to a network, but it's still showing that red X on my internet icon. Not also that, whenever I right-click that internet icon, the menu doesn't even come up correctly (the menu usually has options like "Connect to a network" or "Diagnose and repair". So does anyone know what the heck is happening? I'm pretty sure this isn't a case of a virus or something because I ran my Kaspersky virus scanner yesterday, showing 0 viruses. I'm kind of scared right now, can anyone help me? I'll be checking back this thread frequently to answer questions

Oh and also, due to this problem, I can't even open up my ATI Catalyst Control Center. Bleehhh what's wrong?

Decently long story (disclaimer: I am by no means a techie) - purchased Dell XPS 1647 yesterday, proceeded to move files and download the necessary software. After a couple of hours, started getting BSODs like CRAZY. I mean, literally, every twenty minutes. STOP code 0x0000007F. Ran a diagnostic check, came up with a 0F00:133C error code, saying "DISK - no suitable disk media is present." After much frustration, I ended up going to sleep. Woke up in the morning, contacted Dell support online chat, and got YET ANOTHER BSOD in the middle of it which promptly disconnected me from the chat. The guy I was talking to called my phone, and when I started talking to him, I could barely understand his English. Without getting too OT, he determined (with limited info...I was slightly skeptical) that my problem was with the hard drive. He ordered a replacement hard drive and a technician to come fix it in 2-3 business days.

Well, like the idiot I am , I decided to try to fix the problem myself, not wanting to have a freakin' technician come fix my computer that I bought YESTERDAY. I ran CHKDSK (after...wait for it...another BSOD crashed my computer), and the real problem began. So I assume it is running on the screen that looks frozen, and don't freak out too much. Then, it shuts off (I think). I turn it back on, and BAM. Black screen. I freak out a little bit more. Wait. Wait. It shuts off again. I turn it back on. Black screen.

Microsoft Edge browser became really buggy all of a sudden. I've done a clean Windows install soon after that (WIn10 build 1607), but the problem is still there. I have tried resetting the browser only, but no success. GPU drivers are up to date (R9 380). It only happens in Edge, all other browsers are fine. When I made a new local account, there were no problems.

Video upload (AK1G) - vidme

This kind of a twitch happens every now and then and I have to restart the browser so I can use it normally. It happens in all kinds of situations, while browsing, being open in the background or being completely idle. The apps which are running simultaneously become unresponsive until I minimize/ maximize/ switch between them.

Is there a way to fix this without making a new account?

In general the upgrade path to Windows 10, starting from a W7 machine that went to W8 and then to W8.1 wasn't very smooth, but in the end, I have a fresh installation of Windows 10 on my box (for the record, I had to resize the system partition but the message to do so was cryptic and I had to download a third-party repartitioning tool, I wasn't given the chance to preserve my apps because setup decided to change my default language and then informed me that I can't preserve my apps due to the different language settings and, finally, even though the installer assured me that there were no compatibility problems with my machine, my scanner is apparently incompatible).

I noticed over the weekend when I go to speedtest.net it shows the wrong location. I live on the east outskirts of London yet it thinks my nearest test server is Aberdeen / Edinburgh. If I go to edge, the home/start page which can be customised shows weather for Edinburgh! I have manually customised for London to fix this rather than let it auto detect. But it's weird. If I open the maps app it shows me on the map in the correct location!

its worth noting that I am seeing the same problem on my iMac when I go to speedtest.net so it's not a Windows problem but it's still left me scratching my head and also wondering why the maps apps on both machines get the location correct. Both connect via Ethernet.

Answer:Speedtest.net and edge show wrong location

I'd heard that speed test will find the server nearest where your internet provider's address is, I have to manually choose Manchester as that's the closest to me but automatically it can choose Maidenhead or elsewhere other than where I am.

Hello to all, This is my first post.
Today I found out that Google had limited its search service on Edge by MicrosoftInsider.es, and this happens
This is a great hoax, and also seems to make it or for two reasons:
1. Attempt of Stop of growth of Microsoft Edge
or 2. Google Revenge
What is the solution? This:
Press F12 (if you are on a laptop press Fn + F12), This open the F12 Tools
After go to Emulation, in Browser select or Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox, and Solutionated.
Well, I hope to see their opinions and also see that users of Google in Edge make.

This is a great hoax, and also seems to make it or for two reasons:
1. Attempt of Stop of growth of Microsoft Edge
or 2. Google Revenge
What is the solution? This:
Press F12 (if you are on a laptop press Fn + F12), This open the F12 Tools
After go to Emulation, in Browser select or Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox, and Solutionated.
Well, I hope to see their opinions and also see that users of Google in Edge make.
Kind Regards :)
PD: i use Bing

Answer:Google limits the search service in Microsoft Edge ┐this is a hazard for the grow of Edge?

I'm not exactly sure about what you're saying.. Afaik Google hasn't implemented any limits for Edge users. Do you have proof of this? The picture you have added does not proof that Google has implemented a limited number of searches for Edge users

Microsoft Edge does not have any control buttons, from the opening page you have to search to get to any website.
Does anyone know how to get these to work in edge? As of right now it is a useless program and a huge step backwards from IE11.

Answer:Edge has no back, forward, home, url, favorites, or settings. How can I get all of these to work in Edge?

if you are talking about the mobile version i have to say it haves all of the above exept the forward button

I've been having this problem since I upgraded to the creator's update. Sometimes everything works perfectly, but most of the time I have these issues:

Edge won't connect to internet or load anythingI can't close tabs in EdgeThe "Close all tabs" option in edge doesn't work, only closes 1 tabI can only get Edge to close using Task ManagerWindows Store apps like Twitter and Netflix won't connect and also sometimes won't closeI can't check for Windows updates through settings (won't connect again)

The internet works on third party apps that weren't downloaded in the Windows Store, like Chrome, Firefox, Opera, and Spotify. Does anyone have any idea what could be causing this or how I could fix it? Thanks so much!

Answer:Internet Not Working in Edge & Windows Store Apps, Edge Won't Close

Hi ineedhelppls. Welcome to the TenForums @ineedhelppls

First thing I would do is run these commands at command prompt(admin). In the following commands do not key in the information in brackets, it is there to tell you what command does.

ipconfig /flushdns (Clear the dns cache)
nbtstat -RR (release and refesh NetBIOS names)
netsh int ip reset (reset ip settings)
netsh winsock reset (Reset Winsock Catalog)

Test.

Then I would disable IPv6. You will notice it can be enabled just as easy.

If you still get issues I would recommend a network reset. You will lose wireless passwords.

Start=>Settings=>Network and Internet=> scroll down to bottom on the right hand side, last option, Network Reset.

Since installing the November Windows 10 update (11/17/15) none of my favorites are being stored in the default Edge folder. While in Edge the favorites are available but when I go to the default folder they are not listed. Is there another location they may be being saved or has my default location somehow been changed? My AppData folder shows a creation date of 11/17/15 with no modifications being made in favorites since that date.

I ve bought thinkpade edge 13 (0221RY6) and formated my hdd (was trying to install win XP). But now i am ready to switch on Windows seven and i am very sorry that i ve formated my HDD with pre installed windows 7.Somebody who has same machine PLS Can u give me your copy of recovery usb or link on it! Or any other help.THANKS!

Answer:I have lost my Recovery HDD with pre installed windows 7 on ThinkPad Edge 13 edge PLS Need HElp!

This is why one should burn recovery media before fiddling with the HD.
 
One option would be to download a legal Windows 7 ISO and install it.  Or borrow one.  You can use the product key on the bottom of your machine (or in the battery compartment) to activate the installation.  You may have to use the phone option to activate.
 
Working Legal Windows 7 Download Links 
 
To do this you must install the same version of Windows that came on your machine - but it can be either 32 or 64 bit.
 
Your machine came with Win7 Home Basic 32.  I can't say for certain that these "all version" ISOs include that version, but you can try and see.
 
Once you have Windows installed, go to the Lenovo support page and enter your machine type.  That will take you to a list of drivers and apps to download.  Expand the ThinkVantage option and install ThinkVantage System Update.  You can then run it and it will download and install the other software automatically.
 
I'm basing this on what I see on the US pages.  Yours may be different.
 
Good luck,
Z.

I tried upping from recommended 250% to 350% for use of a genealogy program made that program larger but nothing else and if I use pinch to spread out and enlarge then screen impossible to work on because it just jumps from side to side I set everything back and restated and still the same display smaller than before.  I have Nvided GEForce 960M video card and right now laptop is useless.

Answer:Display on XPS Infiniti edge to edge now so small cannot read anything

I didn't even realize you could go that high.  When I tried 250%, some things became so large that it became impossible to click important buttons since there wasn't enough display area to present them.  It sounds like your genealogy program isn't scaling-aware.  Also note that in some cases, after changing the scaling setting, you need to log off and back onto Windows for the change to fully take effect.
Also, what version of Windows are you running?  The display scaling functionality has changed significantly with each release of Windows from Win7 on, including within the various releases of Windows 10.

I have the same exact set up on both machines (very darn close) and Ive always noticed that Edge consumes around 500mb-1GB of mem upon start up with my predesignated 5 tabs.
After the TH2 update on my desktop, I was blown away that Edge now only consumed 30-150mb, even with a twitch stream rolling in the background for extra measure. However, on the SP3 (after TH2) the memory usage is still the same
What gives?

I've just setup a new system w/an ASUS 939 mb w/nVidia chipset and Athlon XP 3200 processor. It has a utility on the cd called "NTune" which I think finds the best settings for your mb. Anyway, when I run it I get the following msg:

"Warning. Your PCI clock is currently set to track the HT bus. If you adjust the clock for the HT bus, the PCI clock will change as well."

It then says to check my manual to "disable this behavior before proceeding" and that it's not responsible for "hardware damage that occurs" if I ignore this warning.

My goodness, sounds serious. Contrary to the msg, I can't find anything in the manual about this. What the heck does it mean? What do I need to do?

Thanks,

Question: What The HECK!!

So!... I was traversing the net this morning and out of nowhere any link I tried to open went somewhere ells. Ok, so I pickup a redirect. Installed malwarebytes, install and updated fine. Started a full scan, and, BAM! it disappeared. WHAT? So I ran the shortcut, I have no permission to run this program. ??? I went to the program EXE, No permission to run this program! Well the heck with this I thought so I installed SUPERAntiSpyware, install and updated fine. Started a full scan, BAM! it disappeared too! I checked my AVG for update and started a full scan, BAM! Gone! OMG! I hard shutdown my system. Lucky for me, last night I did my regular backups. I wasn't going to fool with whatever that was so I whipped off the partition and loaded clean. I scanned my other drives and they say clean.

My question for the Virus and Malware Guru's here is, WHAT THE HECK WAS IT? What has the capability to kill those programs. The last one I dealt with that could kill an AV was I believe Sasser. I'm up and going now and all is fine, but would love to know what it was.

I think they are called hard drive rails or a hard drive caddy?
They attach to the side of my hard drive & slide into the slot in my PC.

The other rails or caddys look nothing like this. They are all different sizes & shapes & won't fit into the slot inside my PC.

Answer:Can someone tell what the heck this is?

They are probably unique to your PC's case manufacturer. I have similar ones in my CoolerMaster case. If I wanted more of that particular type to fit my case, I would probably have to get them from CoolerMaster.

You might have to get yours from whoever makes your case.

Question: why the heck?

It seems that my computer always recognise my scanner (MICROTEK slimscan c3) as a printer (I'm using Windows Xp). Worse of all, it never stop bugging me even without the scanner connected to it! It keep telling me that it found a new hardware --> printer, everytime i log on. This is making me sick!
Here are examples of what i do that never work:
1) Go on line, find a compatible driver for my scanner, download, install and then try an unsuccessful attempt to detect my scanner.
2) Let the com search for a "compatible driver" for my "printer"(which is my scanner) and tell 'em not to bug me about it after it fails to find any (obviously).
3) Disconnecting and connecting my scanner and check again (a stupid attempt, i do not know why i did it).
4) Check the connection again and again (I can't push the plug any inner, a little bit more and my scanner would have a hole..)
5) Pray for my scanner(just kidding)
6) Sit and hope that one day my com will stop bugging me...

*I thought may be getting a new scanner would do but until this crap stop bothering me, i dont think it'll help.
Is there any solution?

I upgraded my graphics card a while ago, and gaming is much better than my old crappy 64 mb card, but I still think things could be faster, and not just with gaming. I'm pretty sure besides getting a new computer, that the best thing I could do would be to get another 512 mb of ram. I want to spend as little as I can, and I don't need the highest quality stuff. I don't use the computer for business, video or imaging, or anything graphical. Just personal use and the occasional gaming. Not really a hard-core gamer, but I do play newer title stuff.

So, my old rig got clustered with a TON of viruses (computer got raped by trojans and malware all of a sudden), so I decided to reformat fully using an old XP Pro disc from a Gateway laptop of mine (SP1).

Specs: AMD 3200+ (Winchester), ABIT AV8, PNY 6800GT, 1GB Patriot 3200, Seagate 200GB 7200RPM - ALL stock speeds.
Monitor: LG Flatron L1710S

I get into desktop and install my LAN drivers, Nvidia driver (175.19), then DirectX 9.0, and restart. This is when it gets fun.

As I boot into desktop, my computer has become a painting, and it's Windows 98 all over again. It seems I'm locked at 4 bit 800x600 and everything looks ass-tastic. I think, oh shit, probably just installed drivers for the wrong OS, so I uninstall current drivers, run Drivercleaner, and reboot, and it's "normal" again. I reinstall the drivers, and same exact thing happens and everything is gritty and nasty. When I go into Run > dxdiag, it appears that my comp doesn't recognize my 6800GT. Isn't it suppose to, even without drivers?

http://phishcave.com/upl/AN2gVtJeE7.png

Never had this problem before, any help? Did I not install something I should have?

Update: I install the drivers that came with my 6800GT and everything seems fine, so does that mean the 175.19s just aren't right with my 6800GT, or with SP1?
 

Answer:...What the heck? Seriously, what gives?

You'll want to check your chipset drivers and make sure they were put on first. If so, then try different Nvidia driver versions.

Also, you may want to PM a mod ASAP and ask them to chage your thread title.

Okay, I know I am in the presence of greatness, please help me out with this.

Symptoms: I will be in any program on my pc. Game or just have a window open checking out my computer, and even now typing this. Suddenly the window will go inactive, or if I am in a game (especially irritating when I am online) I will get kicked to the desktop. ARRGH!! I don't even know what I am dealing with, so I don't know how to solve it. It wont close the program I am in but I have to click back on the window and make it active again, or if in a game click the bottom window bar to go back into the game (at which time I have usually met my demise).

Hi Guys,

I know some of you are very good when it comes to Windows XP Pro and what is and isnt normal, so I thought I would post a question here...

I have 512MB System memory and I was wandering, if that was getting chewed up and basically getting critically low, say below 50MB available, would windows free (Including the mouse) like a pause, to try and free some system memory?

I am just curious becuase recently my system has been having a hard reign when it comes to pausing for upto 5 seconds at a time, and repeats this until I reset, although I haven't left it waiting longer than 5 mins to see if it stops by itself. This doesn't happen ALL the time, say 2 or 3 times a week.


Also, here is a paste from my system information - running processes section.. Can someone tell me if some stuff shouldn't be here or I can disable somehow? When I got this readout all I was running was Avast! Home edition and azureus.... Nothing else was loaded.

Answer:XP Pro... What the heck...

What does taskmanger say during this time within the performance tab? Is it spiking at 100% and large page file usage?

What is your page file set? How much hard drive space do you have left?
Within processes, what is the peak mem usage and VM size on the process that may be causing this issue?

Peak mem usage and vm size can be show, if you click "View", "Select Columns".

I personally have those, and vm size, paged pool, i/o reads, i/o writes, i/o read bytes, and Command line.

I assume xp is fully updated? Are you running anything in particular in the background? Any tasks that are set during these times?

Does the eventvwr.msc have anything going on during these times? <---- this can be checked any time, as long as you remember the dates and times this has caused an issue.

Hi everyone,

I have a 10-year old desktop, from Antec and "powered by Asus". My HDD is 15 years old and I do not know what kinda motherboard or all the stuff including PSU because my dad gave it to me, except that I have a Radeon 9550.

Recently, my younger brother downloaded a torrent onto my computer which was discovered by me. I removed it and did a virus scan which turned out negative. But the next day weird things started happening. Firstly, Google Chrome would only open 30 seconds after I clicked on the icon, whereas before the torrent got onto my computer it opened almost immediately. sometimes, when I run Flight Simulator X my computer freezes (ie. you cannot do anything, no CAD, mouse not moving etc) with sound looping, after that there is a black screen. Then I cannot restart; I must either keep trying or give up and try the next day.

Then a few days back till now my computer started going off like that again randomly no matter what I was doing, sometimes even when idling. It became really slow as well. Now I can't even get it on because the CPU starts off, fan starts spinning and basically everything starts EXCEPT the monitor it does not display anything, even the Windows XP start-up sound is heard after a few moments.

I have a 3.2 GHz Pentium 4, 1GB RAM and ATi Radeon 9550 card. Help?

Hey all, just a unique (I think) question. Yesterday I was playing "World of Warcraft" now everything was working just great with my system NO problems however Warcraft (as it seems to do) crashed as I was exiting the game... and it crashed hard. So much so that Ctrl+Alt+Del was failing to shut down the non responsive program so I had to do a hard re-boot. When I went to do it I hit the power button instead of the reset button by mistake. Anyways when the system tried to boot back into Windows XP Proffessional my sound was now comming out all garbled, and the mouse was moving choppy the start menu also is very slow to come up from time to time. So I figured "Okay damaged a file I'll just reload WinXP" Ive done that many times and it always worked. A few times it even failed to boot properly and I had to boot to "safe mode".

So format and re-install all goes well but loading up the splash screen takes forever to load, and even after installing all my drivers again the sound is comming out warbled and the mouse is very finicky in responding on the desktop AGAIN! I started loading WoW and doing it the sound was all warbled again and the mouse was barely responding and MSN messenger was sounding warbled and slow as well. I even noticed before ANY drivers were installed the mouse cursor was moving a little choppy far too much for a Processor clocked at 1900 MHZ. So I cancelled it and turned to the forums. Any ideas? The system was perfectly FINE... Read more

My computer has been acting really funny lately. For starters when ever I move/make a new folder I ether have to wait 10 seconds for it to show that I did it or I have to press F5. This happens after updating to Dell A10 (I think) BIOS version.
My hard drive also makes a lot of funny noises (so im suspecting hard drive failure).
My screens also will randomly turn green and i will have to restart. When booting up from sleep mode, my screens will sometimes not turn on and I will have to force shut down - that results in a BSOD and then I reboot again and I can finally get on my desktop. Any ideas on what I could have?

Answer:What the heck is going on?

Hi everyone
My network connection is totally messed up and I dont know how to fix it. I have 2 computers connected to the internet thru a Linksys wireless router and DSL modem. Until about a week or so ago they were both ethernet connected. My NIC died and I installed a Linksys wireless PCI adapter that I had purchased awhile back. Since it was too long ago Linksys will not support it saying the warranty ran out.

A couple days ago I started losing connection every 30 seconds. It would say "acquiring network address" then "connected" for about a half second and start over. Well, I went into both the modem and router settings and followed the instructions on the linksys site for setting it up but something went wrong. I couldnt even get on.

Finally messing with it, somehow I got connected thru the actiontec modem instead of the name I set up..... but I also show connected thru a "local area connection on linux" I have tried the windows management as well as the linksys manager.

I have tried to re-set up the wireless network connection a couple of times but its not working. Now, the wired computer has no internet access.
It did for a little while today when I was connected but now my son can't even log on. We have looked and played with every setting we know and nothing will work. He used to also have that "linux" connection but it is gone.
Is there any hope?? lol

My mam was working on Excel and she saved it, then closed it. Not long after she closed it, 4 of these little pop-up things came on screen. I didn't close them, because I wanted to know what they were. I opened up Task Manager (Ctrl + Alt + Del), and the programs running were the following:-

- Notification Wnd for RNAdmin
- UPnP Notification monitor
- motMpbtn
- MPWnd - Hooker

I think UPnP means Universal Plug and Play, but that's about it.

I hope they don't have anything to do with a virus, spyware or even hacking. We have Avast AntiVirus installed and Windows firewall on so I don't think it's due to a lack of security. Also, one of the windows was quite big (about 1/2 the screen but in the center) but had no name at the top and was totally blank. This is going to drive me crazy if I don't find out what it is.

Please be nice and tell me what it is :]

Question: What the heck?

I was asked to do my best to find out what is happening with this computer. I was told it has started a self "virus scan" that I am guessing is a trojan. I realise that the first thing you all are going to tell me is "Utilize the norton removal tool and get it the heck off of there." I and still reverting from a system recovery from an update from HP that didnt install right. I do have updates from microsoft which are going in tommorow morning before school. Norton would not allow me to run AVG 8 while it is installed so thats where I am at there. I also just followed the instructions of another member to remove other malware from this machine probably a month or so back, I will post the link, and the HJT log will be included in the following post. I do still have MBAM and combofix, and those logs can be posted upon request.

That's probably the stupidist question you guys ever came upon, but how the heck do I use it? Sure, it's easy to play music and all...but trying to play some of my movies on it is really frustrating. I tried playing 3 movies borrowed from my friend; FF: Advent Children, Kung Fu Hustle and Marrying the Mafia 2.

FF: Advent Children...well it plays, but it seems to play 2 different languages at once. One's definitely Japanese, but I'm not sure about the other. The point is, how do I make it just play one language? Also...I have no idea how to get the subtitles to work either.

Kung Fu Hustle: It just tells me that it can't play..."Windows Media Player cannot play DVD video. You might need to adjust your Windows display settings. Open display settings in Control Panel, and then try lowering your screen resolution and color quality settings.". I doubt it's got anything to do with that because I've got a Nvidia GeForce 8600M GT. I've also downloaded the free 'Essentials Codec Pack', but I'm not familar how codecs work though.

Marrying the Mafia 2: My computer refuses to recognize the disc...so it's totally not related. I'd probably go bug the people in the Apple forum about this later. It works fine on my TV's DVD player and my desktop though.
The first 2 movies run fine on Media Player Classic btw...

I just bought a Samsung 1TB (32mb cache) Sata HD and reinstalled XP pro. I backed up the new (samsung drive) via Achronis Home 2010 with both drives installed. If I keep the WD installed I get two Windows prompts at post. If I pull the WD drive I get a boot drive error as if the OS is not on the Samsung. Is this an Acronis issue? I do not want to go throught the hassel of reinstalling XP although that looks like my current option? Thanks.

Answer:Where the heck is my OS?

The WD holds the boot information. The Samsung does not. Remove the WD drive, insert the XP CD and use these commands at the Recovery Console

fixboot
fixmbr

That should allow XP to boot with only the Samsung drive installed.

My laptop is having issues, some of which were fixed but I was looking at things when I noticed something in my hidden icons. I right clicked on it and left clicked on it, I pleaded with it and yelled at it and it does nothing. Any idea what it is and if I need to somehow get rid of it?
 

Answer:What the heck is this?

Have you tried by just putting the pointer on top of that icon and see what name it gives you. If you are unsure of what it is you can remove it by just going into the msconfig startup and uncheck whatever program you don't want to be running on the background and restart your computer.
