Wireless Access 2013 application program

Question: Wireless Access 2013 application program

I have a split Access 2013 "application program?. This application program has a Front-end part that exists on each terminal within the network. The back-end part (the data) lives on the File server with Windows Server 2012. The front-end and back-ends are connected to each other with cat6 cable. This works great. What I now want to do is be able to walk outside to the end of my property with a portable computer and still be able to use this front end application program but without a wire. Assuming I have a wireless connection to the file server with good signal strength how do I link up the portables front end to the back end?

I have an Access 2013 program that works great in a WIRED network. I now want to take a portable computer loaded with that same program and walk outside to the corner of my property and wirelessly communicate back to the same network. Assuming I have an adequate signal what is the best way to link back to the network (VPN)?

Second: If I had multiple portable computers would they all link back using the same VPN?

Answer:Wireless Access 2013

To me "Access 2013" is a Microsoft developed database management program. If that is what you mean I do not understand the relevance to "WIRED" vs. wireless networking nor to a VPN. Please explain, or tell us if you are referring to some other program.

I am relatively "new" to programming. I always have wondering how to develop a Windows client application and made it a stand alone program that install at the client computer with the "double click" (autoexec?) feature by following Windows standard installation instructions at screen. Can somebody please tell me how is that done and list some basic book references that shows me how to do that?

If I create an application with Access 2000, can I convert it to a standalone application that install and behave as explained above?

Thank you very much. It will sincerelly be appreciated.

I am having the exact same problem as in the post "Solved: Can't find Access Query when using Word mail merge." I am using Office 365 so I have the newest versions of both Word and Access.

When I try to mail merge starting with Access (right click the query and export to word merge), it tells me it "Could not find file 'C:\Users\Jeanne\Documents\My Data Sources.mdb'" I have a folder called My Data Sources. And yes, the database I want it to go to is in that folder. Of course the folder doesn't have a .mdb after it. What file is it looking for and why? The Access database ends in .accdb. I found some hint somewhere that that might be a problem, but I can't find how to fix it.

When I start the merge from Word, it finds the database fine, but only tables are listed. The link mentioned in the other post is broken, so I can't check that out.

I feel like I'm saying to my son "I'll see you at home" and he says "I can't find the dog." What dog? We don't have a dog, and I never said anything about a dog!!!

I am getting thoroughly fed up with Access! I am fairly tech savvy and can teach myself to do just about anything in excel just through trial and error or looking it up online, but every little thing I try to do in access gives me all sorts of problems!

Please explain the difference between these two and in which direction MSFT is heading. Outlook seems to have way more functionality, but the app is better integrated within the OS in terms of notifications and real-time message alerts.
Hoping Office 2016 will be the solution!

Answer:Windows 10 - Difference between Outlook 2013 and Mail (Application)?

Outlook has always had more functionality, since it is part of Office and is used in enterprise.
The programs/apps like Windows Mail, Windows Live Mail, Outlook Express have always been consumer oriented and lacked features found in Outlook (any version).
Once Outlook 2016 is released, it should be the most full-featured email client available for Windows 10.

I created a database using Microsoft Access 2013 and tried to distribute it to users of Access 2010 (both use the .accdb extension). When the Access 2010 users try to open the database, they get error messages that they are missing a reference called MSOPRIV.DLL Version 2.7. There may be others, but this is the first thing that comes up. The missing reference is needed because the database does a lot of interaction with other Microsoft Office products (Outlook and Word). Does anyone have an idea how I could embed the proper references into the database so it would work on the previous version of Access?

I have searched using google to find a specific answer with no luck. I keep getting error code 429 when trying to use DAO language "OpenDatabase" so I can use SQL Language to search various worksheets in one Excel 2013 Workbook. I am running Windows 7-64 and Office 2013 64-bit. From what I have read, it would appear DAO is not supported anymore by Microsoft, and even ADO doesn't look like it is looked favorably by the folks at Microsoft anymore. I really don't care if I can't use DAO anymore as long as if there is a method where I can use similar functionality to find specific records based on specific criteria, amend certain records, create other records, and move amongst records (i.e. .movefirst, .movelast, etc.). If there is a different VBA language that is usable for 64 bit versions of my software, I will learn it.
I rather not use the workbook, worksheet functions and using IF-THEN statements going through the entire table trying to find certain "records" that match the criteria I am looking for. It works, but its tedious and I much rather use SQL type language.
I realize using MS Access would be more appropriate, but I prefer using the Spreadsheet format. What I am trying to do is write a VBA program that converts certain cell values into a certain format to be converted to a csv file to upload to a website for my web-store.

6 month ago I setup my home network between Toshiba laptop, Dell XP Pro SP3 and HP Pavilion XP MCE SP3 using Linksys WRT54G networking box. The laptop was connected wireless while the two desktops are wired using network cable. All of them have Norton 360. They were working fine.

I have tried using sfc /scannow but nothing has happened. I've also tried rebuilding the icon cache.

Answer:access 2013 database

nphcpa, welcome to the forum.
I am not sure what "AR, AP, CD,PR,JE, GL........etc." are, but it sounds like the overall design of the database may not be optimal.
The fact that you have to have the "move data from tables to GL" suggests that the data should be in a GL table but identified by it's source and split up via Queries for data input/editing.
As for item 2 it sounds like you should have a "Line Entry" sub table and subform for the Transactions.
Can you show me a screenshot of your table Relationships?

I can run both queries directly in Access. But when using qryVouchersNotReceived as the filter in a DoCmd.OpenReport statement, I get the following error:

Error 3079: "The specified field dbo_FieldTrips.DepartureDate could refer to more than one table in the FROM clause of your SQL statement."

Note that DepartureDate is a field only in the dbo_FieldTrips table and that although I qualify it anyway, Access still throws the error.

I am the administrator of a small private school. I am trying to make a student database. I have had Access for about a year now. I got it too late in the summer last year to really dig into all the features, so for the past year I have used it pretty much as one would an Excel file; Student names on each row and an impossibly long list of columns with everything I needed to know about that student. If a student had separated parents who both wanted to be in the loop, that student was listed twice in separate rows with different addresses and phone numbers.

This summer, I sat down to do it right. I am fairly good at teaching myself how to work things. I play around and look up specific questions... I've made some fairly complex Excel spreadsheets this way. So I started out with How to Make a Database tutorials. Here's the start of what I've learned:
1. Make many small tables instead of one large one.
2. Don't input data twice.
3. Use relationships to connect your data.
4. Use a form to input your data.

What I get from this:
Make lots of tables...
1. Students- Names, birthdays... Information that is unique to each student.
2. Guardians- Names
3. Addresses
4. Phone numbers
There should be more, but this is what I started with.

Now I connect the data.
Students and Guardians must have a many-to-many relationship because there are sibling and cousin students and mother, father, grandparent guardians. All this can be interconnected. I just need to make ... Read more

Hi all,

At the office we have a data base of about 12000 customers. actually it is 12000 orders. some customer purchased from us several times. We want to send our customers a letter and introduce a new item that they may want.

the actual number of customers is about 8000 and it would cost a lot of money to send out the unneeded 4000 letters. So I am trying to find a way to eliminate the duplicates.

the database has several fields:

order # -- First Name -- Last Name -- Address -- City -- Zip

I could sort the database by address and take out the duplicates 1 by 1 witch will take forever.

I'm hoping someone here knows how to set up a query to do the job.
also, please tell me in plain English how to set it up.

Answer:Find duplicates in Access 2013


You will find a tutorial here:

Queries: How to Create a Find Duplicates Query

It's difficult to provide step by step instructions without being able to see the data. One problem is that finding duplicates requires exact text matches in the fields that you want to query for duplicates.

First Name and Last Name are no good unless they're unique.


C Smith
C. Smith
Chris Smith
Chris A. Smith
C.A. Smith

They might well be the same person but a duplicate query won't pick this up.

Address field:

123 Some Road
123, Some Road
123, Some Road, Some Town

A duplicate query won't pick this up either.

Find the most unique field (probably Zip) and compare that.

I find that sometimes the best way is to copy the table into Excel and use the find duplicates add on from asap-utilities to remove duplicates rather than using the remove duplicates function that's built into Excel.

With your duplicates removed you can copy the data back into a COPY of your Access database. (A cleancopy with the data removed before you re-populate it).

Help! I have been using Access for years with no issues. Now I have a database created in Access 2013 (Office 365) that will not open. I get the error "database is not a recognized database format" or something of the sort. I tried copying it off the One Drive and putting in my Documents, thinking that it might be because it was in the cloud, but same message. I want to try Compact and Repair, but I cannot get to the database at all, so can't do that operation. I've read you can open Access and do a C & R on another database, but that doesn't work. It forces you to choose a template, and if I create a blank database and then go to C & R, it does not bring up a list of databases--just does nothing. Holding shift while opening Access does nothing except open it as usual. Any ideas at all out there????

Answer:Access 2013 says my database is unrecognized format

You should be able to open Access without opening a database and then do the C&R on the problem one, you hava been able to do so on all versions up to 2007, I have not tested 2010/2013 though.
Another alternative is to open a blank database and try an Import from the problem one.
However if it is totally corrupted neither method will work, that is why it is issential to have a backup copy.

I have recently installed Windows 10 and Access 2013. I have a data base of about 1.5 GB after Repair and Compact.
I have recently started getting the Error Message MaxLocksPerFile exceeded. This is normally while running a query and updating fairly large files. I then also get a message "ID is not an index in this table" and it freezes. I also get another messsage "Cannot find AutoKeys". Then Access does a recovery and sometimes it is successful and sometimes not.
When I try to copy a largish table I get the message 'Table could not be opened'. I then click on the table and it opens perfectly. The problem appears to be worst when the database size grows to its maximum of about around 2GB.

1). If I look in Macros, AutoKeys is empty !
2). If I check on a working backup AutoKeys is populated.
3). Each time I get the error AutoKeys is emptied.
4). MaxLocksPerFile is not in my Registry.
5). In the Registry, I tried to go to the recommended:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINES\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Office\15\ccess Connectivity Engine\Engines\Ace
but Access Connectivity Engine etc. are not listed. I do see listed, 15\Access\Capabilities but not what I wanted.
6). A registry search also does not find "MaxLocksPerFile"

I can't believe I can't find the answer to this dilemma, which I've tried to solve for years. Hoping someone might have some insights. I have my own business, and keep a Contacts table in Access 2013. I also have a Contacts folder in Outlook 2013 that I want to keep in sync with my database. Sometimes changes are made in Outlook (or using GSyncit to sync with Google on my phone or tablet) and sometimes when entering service calls in Access. When I go to created a "linked table" from Outlook to Access, I get a separate table of contacts that will not sync with my existing table. Every week, I have to literally export Access data to an Excel CSV and import into Outlook, then go through name by name to choose the latest entry to keep. Ridiculous! I've googled and googled, and I have found no joy. Any ideas??

A requirement of my database is that when a user inputs their details (Name, Address etc.) that if the town they enter has already been used, the postal code is filled in automatically. With a little bit of VBA i have this working fine. But, I have to record personal information on both members and employers through separate forms and tables. I need a way to bring the town/postal codes together into another table that will both prevent someone from entering a different postal code for the same town, and also for the appropriate information to be appended to the "Town" table and the "Employee" or "Member" table.

I tried relating both the Member and Employee tables with the Town table but this just resulted in an error.

I am new at MS Access 2013 and created a Database. I am trying to split the from and have user utilize the front end DB to input data to the tables located on the back end DB.

My problem comes when splitting the DB. The front end works fine and I created an executable that is easy to access. The back end on the other hand gives me an error stating that the content cannot be opened because it does not have a trusted signature. The only option that is highlighted is cancel. After clicking cancel, it closes the DB and here is where I got stuck.

Does the table "Link Manager" give you the same error?

I have been scratching my head and searching everywhere, but I seem to have only questions and no answers to this one. I have a business where I keep all my clients in an Access 2013 database. The tables and queries include all contact information, and I also enter dates when I have had appointments with each client along with details of our sessions. Each week (or whenever I get around to it) I must do several things:
update all contact info in Access and export the data to a folder in my Outlook Contacts
enter dates from my Outlook Calendar into the Services table (via a form) and fill in details
export updated Contacts from Access to Excel to upload into my Enewsletter program to email newsletters to clients
make sure my Outlook contact info is syncing correctly with my Samsung Galaxy (I use gsyncit, the best app I've found for this)
refer to my contacts on the phone to get addresses as I am on my way to each client's house or business

Quite a pain, right? If only I could set up a system where any new changes to contact info made EITHER from Outlook OR from Access automatically synchronize AND the address info is included in my Outlook Calendar entry for the person AND a service entry is entered in my Access database for that call, wouldn't my life be easier?!

Hi all,

I have a form that contains 4 text boxes. Each of these text boxes are used to search for countries in 4 different tables and are pushed into a query to help show me the desired content. My four tables are document, name, language, and origin. And there are always two field, student ID and Countries. In these four tables students can have multiple records so a student name might show up as Canadian and French.

I am hoping that the text box searches could be independent and overwrite each other when necessary. Currently if I set one text box to search a country within my Document table, that result will hinder further searches in my name Table.

I want to be able to pull results for everything I'm asking for. Such as looking for students that has a French name but also have Canadian documents regardless of their name.

On top of this I am hoping to be able to search multiple things within a text box at once. Such as looking for students with French and Japanese names and at the same time looking for students with Chinese and Canadian documents.

I've been researching for days now and I still do not have a solution. Is this possible?

I'm a bit of a newbie with access so forgive me if anything is not clear.

Answer:Microsoft Access 2013: Form Text Box Query Help

I'm not sure how one runs searches 'at the same time'. The best of us can only run and process one query at a time?

I'm thinking if the 4 tables were joined to Name (show all records from Name table and) on StudentID any search on name should return all records available.

Tip: in the query (of the joined tables) the criteria for name should be
"*" & [forms.formname!StudentName] & "*"
this will allow just typing a few letters of the name to return records.

I'm a query design beginner so I dont know exactly how to approach this problem in ms access.

My office 2010 crashed and wouldn't re-install because of missing MSO Cache items, and of course all support has ended. So I uninstalled it and cleaned up all registry entries and then purchased and installed Office 2013. After I made sure it was working correctly, I ran updates on CCleaner Pro and CleanMyPC Registry Cleaner. What I failed to do is what I ALWAYS do, and that's make sure that ALL of my programs are working after the installation or update of ANY program. So any of the above may have caused the problem. And during this time I also ran the program "RED" (remove empty directories). Now I'm getting this error message on a number of my programs. This message pops up any time I try to "run", "uninstall", "repair", or "re-install" any of these programs, so it definitely has something to do w/ *.exe files.

I have two programmes that are essential to my work: Word 2013 and Microsoft Digital Image Suite 2006. Neither of these work in Windows 10, even though I paid for them. I can no longer access my .doc or .docx files, which are essential to my work. I can access them through various apps from the app store but I cannot edit them unless I pay for an app. Why has Microsoft suddenly taken away programmes which I have paid for already?

Answer:I have word 2013. will it work in Windows 10? I've heard you can't access .docx documents?

False, Office 2013 works perfectly in 7, 8.1, 10, etc. Office 365, while MS would like us to subscribe to it, is not necessary to get Office work done. I had a friend with Office 2003 on their Windows 7 laptop, I imagine it would still work in 10.
I can't say about the Image Suite, not being familiar with it, but I imagine Windows 10's compatibility settings would be more than enough in the event of an issue.

Here's the scenario: I have 2 sets of data, one shows repeat calls for a list of customers, the other shows trouble reports for the same set of customers. I want to count how many times each of these customers called within 30 days of the original trouble report.

I have tried using a nested count Iif expression but I don't have a lot of experience with expressions and apparently am using it incorrectly. What I have tried is something like this:

=Count(IIf([Contact Date/Time],+30,1))

Any suggestions or ideas are welcome at this point. Thank you in advance!



Answer:Access 2013 - Count only if date falls within 30 days of field from different table

I would create a 'groupby' query using the DateAdd function for criteria. If this is a report you should be able to link this query to the report query by acct number or something.
SQL looks like this example
SELECT Table1.Name2, Count(Table1.ID) AS NameCount
FROM Table1
WHERE (((Table1.Date1)>DateAdd('d',-30,Date())))
GROUP BY Table1.Name2;

I don't know the difference between an Application and a Program. Thought the Geektionary would help, but didn't find anything there.

I have 2 Dell Windows XP computers.

If I want to copy something such as Microsoft Money from one pc and install it on the other, what exactly do I need to copy? The application or the program?

And where do I find what I need to copy? :confused

Any help in this area is so appreciated.


Answer:Application vs. Program

Well basically an Application is an executable file such as Notepad.exe whereas a program can contain more than one application along with numerous other files such as DLL files.

Since the days when Windows had a registry it is far more difficult just to copy a program as it often has numerous entries in the registry which will point to locations of files within the program - this is why prgrams these days are generally installed. Only if the program contains a small number of files or is a self contained executable (such as Notepad which is both a program and an application rolleyes) can a program be copied.

Hope that's all clear. :confusedrolleyes

Not generally doable. When programs are installed, they make changes in the registry of the computer and in various parts of the Windows operating system. Simply finding a program that will copy over the files, will not copy the registry changes or any other simply copies files. That is why people who try this run into problems. To date I know of no program that copies applications into a useful format to save. There are migration programs and imaging software etc, but nothing for single applications to my knowledge.

Hello, Sorry if this is jumbled, I am helping a friend with there computer when they gave it to me they were unable to get into windows because there password didn't work. So I fixed that and got into windows and then I saw the root of the problem... TONS of malware and viruses. It wouldn't connect to the internet even. So the first step was booted in safemode with networking, used RKILL, then used TDSKILLER, after it found things( I don't have the logs sorry) I then was able to install and update MALWAREBYTES before this I couldn't get a connection after running TDSkiller i was able to get a connection but it would only hold for like 5 min at a time.

Attempt to uninstall (pre-installed) MS Picture It! Publisher 2001 over most of a day have failed. Removal from registry made no difference. Disk is required for removal. Any advice would be welcome. Thanks in advance

Answer:Clean uninstall of program(application)

I take it you've already tried uninstalling it using add/remove programs. Try deleting all of the data files (C:\Program Files\Whatever it would be it) and then using add/remove programs.

Hello Everyone,

I've finally had enough. I am sick and tired of using windows control panel to uninstall programs. Why? Because 1/2 the time I use the add/remove programs thing it doesnt uninstall the program completly. It will leave folders, files, registry entries, hidden crap, and who knows what else still on my computer from the program I wanted to uninstall. Then I have to go back and try to delete them manually, then pray that a registry cleaner will find the rest (which usually doesnt happen).

I'm looking for something that will completely remove EVERYTHING when I uninstall a program. I dont care if it costs money or if its free, as long as it works.

Thank you if you can help.

EDIT: on a side note. Also looking for an easy to use free macro program. Somthing that I can use to press a key stoke, have a few minute delay, and repeat the key stroke. Then loop that untill I press stop.

Answer:Need the BEST program removal application in the world!

I have a flash application running within a secure site. The program uses resources such as video clips and powerpoint presentations. Video clips work OK, but when I ask it to open a .ppt, a popup window appears briefly and then disappears again.
Popup blocker is disabled, and I don't have google or yahoo toolbars.
It's running in a trusted site with all the settings set to minimum security.
there is nothing wrong with the ppt - it runs perfectly on my pc, and from within my secure site.
And (perhaps crucially) it all works perfectly in Firefox!

This all leads me to conclude that there is a setting in IE7 that is wrong, but I can't for the life of me figure out what.

Can anybody help?
The ppt is one of the Resources within the SCORM-compliant "OCR PE AS level Teaching Support" from Heinemann. This is running as a course within the Fronter VLE. (Just on the off-chance that there is someone with specific knowledge of this!)

Thanks in advance.

When logged in to a domain-based workstation under an admin account, if you install a program will this install under all the user accounts? If I recall correctly, I had an application that was installed on one user in the past, but not the others.

Also, what is the best way to install an application for one specific user and not the others?

Whenever installing an application/ program in the past, I always logged on to an admin account and subsequently installed the application. I am just curious if there are other options and if so, how to do it.

Here's a strange problem.

I have AAA Map 'n' Go 7.0, running with WinMe.

When I exit the program, instead of getting the message that I used to get (I believe it was, "Save Changes to startup.mn7?"), I get the following message: "_______ startup.mn7?"

How do I reset the "_______" to "Save Changes to..."?

I have already uninstalled and re-installed the program, and that didn't solve the problem.

I'm troubleshooting a Windows XP (SP2) eMachine (with a fresh OS install on a new hard drive - no original eMachine software remains on the system) and I've never encountered such a persistent problem: certain applications (Fruit Loops, Adobe Acrobat Reader, among others) run fine after installation, but after a reboot they will not run. Their shortcuts, as well as the actual program executables, lose their original icons and are mysteriously changed to the generic window icon (the one Windows will use for a file type is doesn't recognize.) When I try to run these programs, using the desktop shortcut OR the actual executable, I get the error dialog box: "This program is not a valid Win32 application." This happens to several applications, while others (Pro Tools, Acid) remain unaffected and can be executed w/o any problem.
*Note: this computer is not connected to the Internet, so it is unlikely that this is some type of virus.

What could be causing this? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Hey guys, I realize that I am not the only person that has encountered this problem, as my research has shown. I tried to ready some similar posts and problems on this forum and others, but I seem to get stuck at certain steps. Here is my situation. Im on a Dell latitude d630 running windows vista. I fell asleep watching Dexter online and when I woke up there was a new looking Anti-Virus program on my task bar that i do not remember installing. The program showed hundreds of infections and was prompting me to delete only if i bought their antivirus. After realizing I could not delete these infections i tried to close the program and open my Malwarebytes Anti Malware and also Synamatec Antivirus. Both programs failed to open, and an error message bubbled off of the "Antivirus" icon. As soon as this happened I tried harder to download new antivirus and to get this off my comp. But no matter what I download, I am unable to install/open. I cannot open task manager, and recently new virus alerts have been popping up. One says i have an infiltration alert about trojans and password stealing attacks, and when I press stay unprotected www.*censored*.com pops up. I tried to fix this going off what you said to others, but I would appreciate a little one on one help to walk me through this, as each case may be different entirely. Thanks a lot!

Somehow an application program has arrived on my pc (running XP), with an icon on my desktop. I have deleted the icon but cannot delete the program, I get a msg saying 'access denied'.

Is it possible in Windows 7 (either via a windows feature or an add-on program) to password protect individual programs or software so that when you try to run the software you first need to provide a password? Please note this is not the same as UAC in Windows 7. I want to be able to lock down certain programs so that when a user tries to run the program (say Internet Explorer or Microsoft Access) they will be prompted for a password. This would be very handy in a shared user scenario. Is this possible via the group policy editor?Thanks!

Answer:Password protect an application or program

This is not supported by Windows but third party applications may provide this feature. Windows security doesn't work that way.Windows security is based on the users account and the groups it is a member of. This is in the files and folder security properties. Don't change anything here unless you know what you are doing.Note that if the user is using an admin account he can evade any and all restrictions you might impose.

My family computer is a desktop PC running Windows Vista with McAfee. I make sure to run all updates ASAP. My updates are current through yesterday. When I tried to update my computer this morning, the updates failed with an unknown error. "Error(s) found: code 80070103 Windows Update encountered an unknown error"

This morning, I turned on the computer to find that McAfee has been disabled, Windows Defender has been disabled, and that I cannot turn them back on. Additionally, I cannot run any programs. Invariably, I get the response "program.exe is not a valid Win32 application" regardless of whether I run the program from the C drive or a USB.

Neither Internet Explorer nor Firefox are working; I can only access the internet by opening windows explorer and typing an address into the address bar in that window.

I have tried running McAfee in safe mode, but get the same message. I tried the "repair computer" function when I boot the computer, but it insists that I have another drive attached (though I have unplugged the camera, flash drvie, external hard drive)... There is nothing attached (except for the keyboard and mouse). I have tried restoring my computer to a previous restore point only to be told by the computer that there are no restore points.

I started Googling and thought that it may be the Bagle virus because of the "is not a valid Win32 application" but found none of the files listed on the Removing Bagle Infections page... Read more

Hello all. I have myself a rather vexing issue going on with my operating system (XP x64 Edition SP2) that has me baffled, especially since it has survived an almost foolproof barrage of fixes.

Basically, I noticed very recently that one of my programs that requires an internet connection (P2P Program) is unable to connect to the internet, despite having worked fine for almost 2 years now. I blew it off at first, and when I went back again to try it I had the same problem. I ended up downloading another, similar program, and had that problem again. I noticed after this, that some of my games (and other applications) that require an internet connection to update and the like, also are now unable to connect to the internet to perform their functions. Even one of my malware scanners, which requires that it is up to date before being able to run, could not update itself (I manually updated it).

Not sure if this is relevant, but my clock was reset by itself to July 1st 2005, and after I manually reset it, it didn't change itself back (yet).

So in a nutshell, I did some research and found one other guy with a similar problem to my own, which he identified as a worm in his WINDOWS registry. He didn't specify how he removed it.

I've since run my anti-virus software (BitDefender), CCleaner, Ad-aware, Malwarebytes, Spybot S&D, HijackThis, and SUPERAntiSpyware and I've had no luck. Malwarebytes discovered some potentially false positives ignored by Ad-aware and m... Read more
