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.)

So I've been using my Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit install on my Sony AR670 laptop for a couple months straight now with no real issues but this one that started last week with no apparent cause and is getting very annoying.

The system 'hangs' or 'freezes' in a way when I do certain things like create a new file/folder or select a file from a 'browse' file box, especially say when I upload a file to a forum, like this one, using the "Manage Attachments" option... I use Chrome but this happens even in Windows so I'm sure it's not Chrome related... it has something to do with file access is my guess.

During the 'hang' I can still move the mouse and scroll windows but I can't press buttons, open menus, or issue any 'commands' if I do I get the windows 'alert' sound and nothing happens. The length of time of the 'hang' varies from a couple seconds to maybe 15 seconds or so when really bad.

Because it's so hard to describe exactly I haven't had much luck searching for a similar problem.

It also happens when renaming or moving files... The file will seem to revert back to its original name for a few seconds during which time I can't really do anything. If I try to rename it or move it again I get a message the file no longer exists then it will change to the name I gave it the first time.

Any ideas?

There was nothing installed immediately before this started best I can tell.

Answer:Weird Issue- system 'hanging' when accessing files in certain ways x64

From your description, it sounds obvious that since the problem deals with accessing files, that it is likely due to some kind of hard drive issue...at least that would be a starting point. Check it with Hard Drive Tune or Hard Drive Tach. Since it could also be due to some kind of file system error, I would run sfc /scannow and chkdsk /r. From there branch out, because most anything is possible.

Im in a bit of a weird situation and I need to know the different ways that would be possible to hack into a nexopia account.  There is this girl who is threatining me and my friend. She is telling my friend that she will hack into mu nexopia account and delete it.  She prooved she can cause she hacked into his account and left him a msg.  She doesnt even know him and he diidnt give anything away about his password, how could she have and be doing this???-Melissa-

Answer:What are the different ways?

I'm not that familiar with nexopia (never heard of it, actually), but I'm guessing that it should probably keep your password information secure. Below are two possibilities:Your hacker (how do you know it's a she?) could have simply guessed your friend's password if it was easy enough (i.e. password, 123, their name). Or maybe your hacker could've downloaded some password cracking program (there are some out there, if you look hard enough...).If in doubt, just get your friend to change his password, and if the hacker still gets into the account, they probably have a program to do so (or maybe even a keylogger, which is dangerous...)

I am having a problem with a DVD and it is driving me nuts. I can't figure out if it's the DVD or the different players.

1.) When I put it into the DVD Drive of my computer, the video is perfect but I get no sound. I started a game after that and the video and sound work fine.

2.) I checked the DVD by putting it into a Portable DVD Player and both the audio and the video work perfectly.

3.) Next, I tried putting it into the Sony DVD player that is connected to the television and this will not even allow it to play and ejects it. I put in another movie DVD and it is recognized and has good audio and video.

Basically this same DVD (a music concert) behaves differently in three different player drives.

Has anyone else ever had this problem and found a fix for it. I would appreciate hearing from you either in this post or through my e-mail.
Thanks

Answer:DVD Problem 3 different ways

Might not be all that strange - depends on type of DVD. Is the DVD a commercial one or is it one you (or somebody else) have compiled/copied?
1) sounds like a codec issue - your comp may not have the correct codec installed for the sound to play. Try downloading and installing a codec pack such as K-Lite codec pack from:
http://www.free-codecs.com/download/...codec_pack.htm
NOTE: you will get the Media Player Classic with this - it is an excellent player and should play just about anything in conjunction with the codec pack.
2) this player has the codecs and ability to play the DVD type you have
3) the DVD could either be the wrong format (some older players will not play DVD+R or rewritable DVD's but will play DVD-R) OR won't play the DVD if it is region encoded for the wrong region OR some players won't play scratched discs.
Does any of this a) make sense? and b) apply to your DVD?

Yes it is possible, but Xp will be very minimal on services, and basically is just not worth it.

A better option would be one of the Linux LiveCDs, here's a good one : Ubuntu

Welcome to Majorgeeks!

You did not run the online scan from Bitdefender and attach the proper log from it. What you did was install Bitdefender's full antivirus package. You must uninstall this. You already have AVG install and you must only use one antivirus application.

Where is the log from PandaActiveScan that was requested in step 6 of the READ ME.


So basically you must do step 6 of the READ ME!

Hey, I've had my G15 keyboard for my PC for ages now, but I've never taken advantage of the USB ports on the back of the keyboard. What I'm wondering is, can I plug the G15 into my PC, XBOX and PS3 all at once. To do this I could use 2 extra USB A to A connections.

Has anyone done this before, and would it work?

Sorry if it sounds like a stupid idea :P

Cheers

Answer:Using G15 Keyboard 3 Ways

The main problem with USB ports on the G15 is that they are only USB 1.1 ports not 2.0.
They are very slow.
Plus they are not really connected to the keyboard. They just allow extra low speed USB connections from/to your compputer.

It appears that there are two completely separate ways to install Windows XP Pro

On our one computer WinXP starts out with a modern install screen similar to Win ME, but then after it reboots it reverts back to the old Windows 2000 style of installation.

One our other computer WinXP installs COMPLETELY in the new style install screen.

Both computers are new.

Why do they do this, and how can we force winXP to always use the newer style of installation?

Hi there, I've done a lot of reading here but am somewhat confused.
I have a SSD C: drive that I want to restore to an earlier date. Used Macrium Reflect 5.2. Have made a Linux rescue disk with Reflect.
Should I format C: before restoring?
Should I restore by loading Reflect and choosing the restore file?
Or load the Rescue disk and chose the restore file?
Thanks for any help.
Regards, Paul.

Answer:2 ways to restore, which one?

You must restore with the restore disc. But I would not recommend to use the Linux disc.

Download the .iso for the WinPE disc from my Skydrive and burn that to CD. It is a lot better version for recovery.

You don't have to reformat the partition.

Answer:How many ways can you reformat?

You can use the XP CD to format the HD. Just enter the bios and select CDROM as your first boot device. Then boot to the CD and run the recovery console. You can then format, delete partitions...ect using that. Is the HD formated NTFS or FAT32. If just FAT32 you use a bootdisk from www.bootdisk.com that has the format/fdisk commands on it and boot to it and run format.

My general connection speed is bad. 128kbps up / 128 kbps down. Nothing to be proud of there. And my torrent download upload speeds always were around 15kbps up / 13 kbps down. My client is azureus

That was a week ago. Now I cant get any speed at all. I left a torrent up all night and it only downloaded 11mb. 11mb!!!! I used to do 600mb per night.

Now, things that i have tried:

1) Connections limit fix for windows sp2 (did that a long time ago)
2) changing listening ports, ramdomizing them (always properly forwarding it thru my router and letting it pass thru my software firewall)
3) chaging clients, tried bitcomet, abc, etc. nothing
4) connecting my ethernet cable directly to my cable modem, bypassing the router.
5) reinstalling windows altogether (stupid idea but still did it....)
6) found many popular torrents in their middle life which should have given a lot of speed. and nothing.

i read somewhere that maybe my isp is running something called a transparent proxy... Do any of you people can help me here?

it is getting really annoying...
 

Answer:Ways an ISP could cap Bittorrent?

One thing you may want to experiment with is capping your BT upspeed. Because BT is so brute force, if you have limited upstream available to you, which is the case, you run the risk of flooding your upstream to the point that you can no longer make packet requests... Cap your upstream to around 5kbps less than what you max out at, and see if that speeds things up for you.

I've run into this as an issue in two locations now, so I'm not just blowing smoke.

Hi,

I just got a new HP laptop with Windows7 at a great price. Great, huh? Not so much. Not to lay out a sob story, but I have a chronic illness that affects my cognitive function and I'm having a hard time figuring out the whole Win7 thing and am kind of considering taking back or selling the new laptop and trying to find an older(or new) laptop with XP on it just so I don't have to freaking go on the internet to ask every single stupid question I run across, I literally don't have the energy.

For instance, right now I'm in the process of trying to move my files from my XP desktop to a Win7 laptop via flash drive.

When I plug in the flash drive to the laptop with Win7 it only gives me the option of moving the folders to My Documents, and from there I can't figure out how to move the folders to My Music. I see there's an option for Libraries and such, but I don't want that. I want my folders to be in the section I want them in, period. Not located in My Documents and Libraried out to My Music, I want music in My Music, pictures in My Pictures, documents in My Documents, and not everything in My Documents and Libraried out to the various other sub-headings. Revolutionary, right? I know.

So several questions. Does anyone have any idea of what I'm talking about with the question above with the folders and such? Also, since I'm guessing laptops with Vista are fixing to be being sold for cheaper and Vista can be downgraded t... Read more

Answer:Possible ways to get XP on laptop?

Ugh, I think I figured it out and all that needed to be done was to copy and paste the folders, I'd never done that before, I always used the 'move this folder' or 'copy this folder' command in Files and Folder tasks.

Somebody cancel the call for the whambulance, please. :-o:-D

Does anyone know how to send stuff though? I can copy and paste to the different folders, but I'd like to be able to 'send to' as well...

So I have what i think is a simple question.

I have an external modem. Is it posible for the phone to answer the phone when i do as if it was listening in, when it hears a fax transmition, it takes the call and i can simply hang up, then when the fax has been received, it hangs up.

I know of the answer after 5 rings and the manual. But it's 2009, is it incorporated or is there a 3rd party software that can detect once i answer if my call is a fax and take it or see it's not a fax and disconnect?

Thanks in advance,
Joe

Answer:Ways to receive a FAX?

When a fax is being sent-the machine plays a tone if a fax machine answers and hears that tone it replies and the 2 fax machines connect.

If you answer the call, hear the tone, click on your fax software to answer now then hang up the handset it should work.

When fax machines were common there were switches that would pick up on the first ring, listen for the fax tone and switch the call to ring through to the phone or fax machine. Most stand alone fax machines have the capability built in. (I searched fax switch on eBay and a variety of choices came up.)

Download SDFix and save it to your Desktop.

Double click SDFix.exe and it will extract the files to %systemdrive%
(Drive that contains the Windows Directory, typically C:\SDFix)

Please then reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following :
Restart your computer
After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, tap the F8 key continually;
Instead of Windows loading as normal, the Advanced Options Menu should appear;
Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, then press Enter.
Choose your usual account.

Open the extracted SDFix folder and double click RunThis.bat to start the script.
Type Y to begin the cleanup process.
It will remove any Trojan Services and Registry Entries that it finds then prompt you to press any key to Reboot.
Press any Key and it will restart the PC.
When the PC restarts the Fixtool will run again and complete the removal process then display Finished, press any key to end the script and load your desktop icons.
Once the desktop icons load the SDFix report will open on screen and also save into the SDFix folder as Report.txt

Answer:PC Lockup two different ways

Here a few things to try that might get you going in the right direction. I would take off the side of the computer case and make sure there is not a lot of dust built up in the computer, and make sure all the fans are spinning when you start the computer. If all that is ok, try hitting F8 when you restart the computer. This will start you in Safe Mode, which might help eliminate some possibilities.

If you have a lot of dust in the 'puter, use some caution when cleaning it out! Always watch out for static electricity! I use a can of compressed air to clean mine. If there is a lot of dust and you are not comfortable poking around in the case, you might want to get someone to clean it out for you.

Recently cleaned up files and installed Naomi an advanced internet filter by Radiant.

IF not, can it be configured so we can still use it?

This happens about two times an hour at least and is very annoying.
*It just happened again, this time radhslib.dll. It said NT, and we have XP Home.

This isn't really a problem. It is solved already in my mind, but it might be nice to add to the fund of human knowledge about "expecting the unexpected."I run 2 20Gb HDs the first for operating systems and the second for data. I still use Win98SE and fortunately have been using HyperOs which at least makes backing up the OS fairly simple and moderately quick.Both HDs were 4 years old when the data disk was replaced by a new 40Gb disk....... A day ago after a reboot, Windows insisted on a surface scan and found 1 bad sector on the OS HD.Today I have been copying the systems ready to restore to the older HD recently taken out of service.When I connected the old disk alone to prepare it for its new use, and was using the floppy to boot, it somehow disabled the boot sequence, a prod on the Enter key would nudge it a little further but swopping the running disk for the one I wanted to use stalled the whole process three times.No drive warning light, no strange noises, just blind disobedience.OK its back to normal now with the bad sector disk in service and its "replacement" down for binning.What do you think happened? My guess is motor drive failure, but since so much is controlled by the circuit board it could be anything there.I've never had to cope with HD failure before, and fortunately am well placed to recover from this one.Quite a coincidence, both drives are by the same manufacturer, almost the same age and spec. It is unfair to name the manufacturer who used to give a 5 ... Read more

Hey I got the internet herpes yesterday, and after much help from the tech support guy forums I seem to be better. So now the key questions: How do I keep that from happening again. I obviously know less about computers than I thought. Here is what I have: Windows Xp (Service Pack 2 now)

Norton Antivirus (as part of Norton Utilities)- I use Norton for a few reasons. They are a recognized and established company and have a decent base of operations and support, Their programs are fairly simple to use, and Norton was able to disable a virus that Mcafee was not able to defeat (this was a few years ago but they won me over from then).

Ad-aware- This is my only antispyware. I am looking for an active antispyware, but don't know which one is best. I don't mind paying a subscription fee, but I don't want to pay 2 or 3 for the same functions. Which antispyware is best?

Firewall-I do not have a firewall software.however at home and work I have a D-link router. I travel quite a bit and have to use dial up when I do travel. I would like to find one that can be turned on and off as needed and is easy to use. Which would be best?

Browser- I use the god forsaken Internet Explorer. Until Frodo gets the one ring into the mount doom, this one seems like the best one to use. I have tried a couple other browsers, but I kept running into active x and java console problems while I surfed. I have used Opera and Netscape and tried mozilla.

Hi there
I'm having a bit of a problem with my wifi connection in my flat. The materials in the walls seem to be causing interference with the wifi signal because when I'm inside the room I get unstable, slow internet connection but as soon as I step out the connection is simply perfect.
I have tried using a Netgear WN3000RP, but that didn't help. I'm looking for suggestion to fix this problem, I know that an ethernet cable from the router to the room would fix this issue but I want to avoid that path as it would involve drilling and making a mess.

Hi guys, so my computer is ~2 years old now and it's still fast, but it doesn't perform the way when I first got it, now I know after 2 years a computer might slow down, but my dad said it's too slow for the specs it has.

I update Windows regularly and my antivirus, scan for viruses, defrag my hard drive, update video drivers, etc, I even used Norton Utilities and Microsoft Fix-it which didn't really help that much.

Specs are Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 @ Stock 2.4 GHz
nVidia 8600 GTS
Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit
4 GB RAM

Performance Information:

Processor: 5.9
Memory (RAM): 5.6
Graphics: 5.9
Gaming Graphics: 5.6
Primary Hard Disk 5.9

Base Score 5.6

Problems consist of slow load-up times when I turn on the PC, switching users, things like that, it's not a major issue it's just annoying, because I know it can be faster.

Answer:Any ways to improve PC speed

IMO the #1 thing that would help you speed it up is to dump norton (resource hog), and get a lighter weight anti virus program... http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/

You may have purchased many songs from iTunes online store. It will be ok if you just play it on your computers with iTunes, or on your iPod. However, you may need to insert the music in a Power Point presentation, listen it on your mp3 player or set it as background music of your website or other legal personal usage, and you will find you are not allowed.
All the iTunes music files are m4p format, it?s restricted. Is there any way to remove this DRM protection and convert the iTunes songs to widely used mp3 files?
There are some ways that can achieve your goal.
(1) In iTunes, these DRM protected songs can?t be burned to mp3 CD disc, however, you can burn them to audio CD, and then use an audio ripper to rip the tracks from the CD. It may be a waste of CD discs when you have plenty of songs which need to be converted.
(2) Use the program named Noteburner. It has won the award of top DRM removing tool and the third place of audio converter by Top Ten Reviews, please refer to http://audio-converter-software-review.toptenreviews.com/. Noteburner will install a virtual CD burner on your computer, what you need to do is just to set it as default CD burner in iTunes. Open iTunes, operate by Edit --> Preference --> Advanced --> burning, and set Noteburn Virtual CD_RW as your CD burner.

Answer:Some ways to remove DRM protection

This thread sounds almost like spam, but I'll bite. The problem with all of the applications you've mentioned is that it's transcoding the file - not simply removing the DRM. What you're doing in this process is taking a lossy (usually already low quality ~128kbps or ~192kbps) file - decompressing that to a wave which sounds NO better than the original lossy file, then recompressing the wave to a second lossy format losing even more data about the audio. Best case scenario is start with lossless and transcode to another lossless format - both files should should identical. Second best is transcode from lossless to lossy - you only degrade quality once. Worst case is transcode from a lossy format to another lossy format.

Sorry, but I think even the hard of hearing can hear that a twice encoded lossy file doesn't quite sound right.

Hiya,

I am pretty heavily involved in the 3D community (Poser, ZBrush, Carrara, etc...) that means having to download lots of files to check out, beta test or just for fun to play with in the various 3D programs I have. In XP when you had a folder full of exe's and zips the common icon was never an issue when the folder refreshed itself when new installation files were added to it. When Vista came along, I upgraded and this was a real issue. It seems that every frigging file was double checked or something when files were added to it.

Say I download 50 new exe's and 30 new zips.... I have 4 folders that I need to put those 80 files into. I drop them all in and then go into each folder to either install these files or to put them in EXE's and ZIP's install folders to get to later on. I wait about a minute, some times longer for the folder to be full updated with what ever it is that Vista and now Win 7 is doing in the background. The entire system slows down during this. I'm 100% sure it's a security measure but I find it really annoying and a waste of time considering I have each file I download checked out my my anti virus program before it's allowed into my system.

So I've tried various things to speed up things including removing the indexing for each folder, seems to do no good.

I really would like to understand why Microsoft is doing things this way and what I can do to override this complete and utter annoyance and waste of my valuable time!

Answer:Different Ways To Speed Up My Computer

Hi Jaymie !

Well, apart from the defrag and disk cleanup you haven't done much there to speed up your computer. All that antispyware stuff seems a bit overkill to me.

If you're the only user on that computer you don't need that much protection. Just make sure you don't click on every advertisement you see on the internet and you'll be fine with only your antivirus and XP firewall. Run adaware once a week to get rid of the tracking cookies and you'll be ok. The rule is "the less you have installed, the faster the computer will run".

If you do want more protection, then make periodical backups of your whole system using DriveImage. We have a good tutorial here : http://www.techsupportforum.com/arti...ard-drive.html

If you have the opportunity to do so, a good partitioning layout can also improve the overall performances of your computer. Check this discussion : http://www.techsupportforum.com/f16/...ss-160168.html
Your dual boot setup will require a little more tweaking but the basics will stay the same : systems on the 2 first partitions of the first disk and swap files on another disk, and a dedicated partition for all your downloads so that the system partitions don't get fragmented too quickly.

Here are some other tricks to get rid of things that slow your computer down :

Don't install anything superfluous. Some useless part of xp can be easily removed if you don't use them : msn explorer, windows messenger (if you use another messaging client)... Read more

Top Ten Ways to Get Infected by Malaware.
1. Browsing the Web with javascript enabled by default

Today's attackers are more likely to host their malicious files on the web. They may even update those files constantly using automated tools that repackage the binary in an attempt to bypass signature-based scanners. Whether through social engineering or through website exploit, the choice of browser will be of little help. All browsers are equally susceptible to Web-based malware and this includes Firefox, Opera, and the much maligned Internet Explorer. Disabling Javascript on all but the most trusted sites will go a long ways towards safer web browsing.
2. Using Adobe Reader/Acrobat with default settings

Adobe Reader comes pre-installed on most computers. And even if you never use it, just the mere presence can leave your computer at risk. Vulnerabilities in Adobe Reader and Adobe Acrobat are the number one most common infection vector, bar none. Making sure you stay up-to-date with the latest version of Adobe products is imperative, but not foolproof. To use Adobe Reader (and Acrobat) safely, you need to make a few tweaks to its settings.

3. Clicking unsolicited links in email or IM

Malicious or fraudulent links in email and IM are a significant vector for both malware and social engineering attacks. Reading email in plain text can help identify potentially malicious or fraudulent links. Your best bet: avoid clicking any link in an email or IM that is received unexpectedl... Read more

Installation Errors

If you receive notification that the installation failed you should always reboot your system to ensure that any changes made during setup are completely undone.

For more information on the problem, you can refer to the log files at:
%windir%\ie7beta3_main.log
%windir%\ie7beta3.log
%windir%\ie7beta3Uninst.log

where %windir% is the location of your Windows directory, which can usually be found at C:\Windows.


If you receive the error "Setup was unable to open the log file for writing: C:\WINDOWS\ie7beta3_main.log", log in with a user account that has administrator privileges and re-run IE 7 Beta setup.

You cannot install Internet Explorer 7 over itself. If you want to reinstall Internet Explorer 7 Beta 3 (or install a newer version) you must first remove any existing Internet Explorer 7 versions.

Dell is the only one I know of. I have seen other propriatary PSUs put they have always had non-standard connectors so you couldn't accidently hook them up to an incompatible board.

Other than antivirus programs like MBAM, Superantispyware, what else can one do to protect the computer?

I ran antivirus like AVG and then its clean. I run online scanner too. But surely there must be other ways to look after your computer? What can I do to make it "clean"?

Also, What harm is there in not removing internet temporary files, history, etc.?

Thank you!

Answer:Ways to protect your computer

To be honest with you, I think the average end user really only needs some very basic protection. A decent AV product and MBAM plus firewall. Most infections are, it's my experience, user-initiated. In otherwords, it's something you clicked on. The best defense for the average person is to simply be careful what you do and where you go. Anything else, like adding ZoneAlarm or using the Spybot Tea Timer, tends to be more than the average user needs or wants. Now if you're securing your business, or something like that, there are LOTS of things you could/should do. But that's just my opinion.

Hello, Sevenforums.

I recently purchased a new computer and to make a long story short: i have gotten like 10+ bluescreens already.

I have tried doing a following to fix it:
Reformat.
Reinstall (5 times...)
Update all drivers (even using some licensed driver software updaters).
Flash BIOS.
Memtest86+ (sent in the RAM sticks, bough a new as a meanwhile solution, still getting BSODs)
Tried switching the clocks in BIOS, I have a Intel Core i5 3570K 3,4Ghz Ivy Bridge which was turbo-clocked to 3,8Ghz and i found noone else who had this problem regarding the processor.

Answer:BSOD, 0x0000007f. Tried so many ways but still getting it.

Please post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

Hi,

I have a new PC with Windows 10 Pro installed and I'm contemplating using Bitlocker for greater safety on the two hard drives installed. One is a 128 GB SSD and the other a 1 TB SATA.

I would like to know if it is possible to save the generated keys in more ways one one at the moment of creating them. I would like to have the key both on a USB and printed out in text as well. Is this possible or will I have to create two different keys for each hard drive with different choices of storing them?

Thanks in advance.

Answer:Bitlocker - It is possible to save the key in more ways than one?

I'm not sure whether you can create more than one recovery key during the actual creation as I haven't tried it, however in case you can't, you can always create further Bitlocker recovery keys later on, any time you want. See the following tutorial:

Also, there are some general Bitlocker setup tutorials here in case you haven't seen them:

I have a 4 year old Dell Studio XPS 8100 Intel Core i5 Processor 650 (3.20GHz, 4MB), Memory : 8192MB (4x2GB) 1333MHz DDR3 Dual Channel, Hard Drive : 1.2TB(2x640GB) Serial ATA Raid 0 "Stripe"(7200RPM)Dual HDD, Graphics Card - Single 1GB Nvidia GeForce GTS 240. It used mainly for internet (facebook, facebook games etc) and for playing The Sims 3. I also usually have either the TV or windows media music player on simultaneously.
Recently it has started crashing. At first this only happened whilst I was playing sims 3. The screen would go black and then the monitor would go into standby mode (the music continued playing in the background for a while). I was forced to unplug the computer as there was no other way to get it back on.
I have had the insides of the computer cleaned by one of the IT guys at work - it was very dusty but he ran it at work for about 8 hours with no problems.
Since getting it back I still have the same problem when playing Sims so I stopped doing that. It has now started to have 2 other errors. the first one is the computer freezes for a few minutes (mouse won't move, music stutters like a stuck record) this usually lasts for a few minutes and then everything works ok again. The other one is similar to the original error but instead of a black screen I get a different colour each time (the colours have been white, yellow, orange and green). This time the music turns off instantly and the monitor does not go into save mode. I have to unplug the c... Read more

So I have an HP PC. Running a 2.5 processor, 512mb ram, and an 80GB Hard Drive. I cant say what caused all of this but my Pc has started to mess up. A quick list of the errors would be:
1) Windows Media Player opens for 2 seconds and then closes(Upgraded to WMP 10 in hopes of fixing prob but no luck)
2) When I put a CD in or when I start the PC the HP Printer always re-installs itself.
3) Internet Explorer wont start at all.
4) I have SBC Yahoo DSL and now I cant run it because I cant start the program to connect myself to the net. As we know, unlike cable, u have to connect to sbc before u can go online. So I cant connect(Im running the pc through a friends router by ethernet to connect right now)
5) I cant run many programs, things such as, system restore, the SBC program, IExplorer.
6) I cant install norton, when i did i got some errors 1/2 of the way in and had to cancel. I thought it might have been a faulty CD or something. Got a new one and tried to install again, but now i cant even start cause it says a previous installation has been made and i must restart before i can continue. I uninstalled norton, i even removed the files in the registry through the REGEDIT thing restarted the PC and still the same.

I know about the password, the pin number (4 digits) and for special laptops the finger swipe recognition login. But what i'm interested in, is voice recognition logging in. Is there ANY way I could do this? Thanks.

Answer:Different ways of logging in? (Windows 8)

Not unless the system has support software to do it, I've seen a few laptops that did it, but they had specialised software that came with it.

This may be what you need:

Check that out, let me know, I'm kind of interested too. The regular Speech SDK does NOT have any commands to log in, unless you can "speak" a password into the box.

Answer:10 ways to work more securely

Hi there

the problem with this is that IMO "Users" are a lot more Savvy than typical I.T support guys in most big organisations.

For example the I.T computer support guys might be earning around 10 - 15 EUR an hour and are often experienced in hardware etc but can't really compete with other types of professionals - often highly skilled graduates earning 60 - 200 EUR an hour.

So Option 4 is not really a good idea -- sharing data across a LAN is a HIGH risk of Data compromise. Secure data should be SECURE and NOT be available via a LAN.

Even in my own case - I needed to share a file with a colleague who was in another building - and we wanted to bypass the email system (not because of a virus - but because the email system had a 5 MB attachment limit) --I could have "rar'ed" the file and sent it in a few chunks but couldn't be bothered.

So all I had to do was to enable "Share " on my DVD device and allow my colleague to access it on his workstation --it's all possible on a local LAN.

The I.T support guys swore blue in the face that "This was not possible " -- but there's none so blind as those that don't want to see" as the expression goes.

Most I.T support guys do a decent job and work hard - but sometimes they aren't as experienced as the guys working on the gear they are supposed to maintain.
