Preferred Solution: Pop ups driving me crazy!

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.)

QuoteAcroRd32.dllIt looks like Adobe Acrobat Reader gives you some issues.I suggest, you unistall Adobe Acrobat Reader, which is a resource hog, and install FoxIt Reader: http://www.filehippo.com/download_foxit/, which is much smaller, and faster. It does very same thing.Note: When installing FoxitReader, make sure to UN-check any pre-checked toolbar, or other garbage.On this page:make sure, you have both boxes UN-checked AND (important!) click on Decline button

Relatively ignorant on this problem. I have a gigabyte GA 7zx motherboard with an 800 duron chip. Have a PNY nvidia graphics card and have recently put in a Diamond DT-688 sound card. As in the post below I can't get recording to work with the mic. I tried reinstalling the drivers again and now I am getting a message which reads, "There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive\Device\Harddisk2\DR5"

I haven't a clue what this means since I don't know how to put a disk in a harddisk. Any ideas?
 

Answer:Crazy message is driving me crazy

Well its probably reffering to some kind of storage device you are using, if you have any beside One EIDE harddisk...

What's the Operating system you're working with? Do you have 2hardrives or a zip drive or something? A SCZI drive perhaps? Are you trying, albeit inadvertantly, to record on your CDRW drive?

I have a Compaq Presario 2570US laptop. Of late, whenever I type something, whether in MS Word, Search Engine Search Bar or even in this message etc, my computer DELETES (backspaces) what I type on its own. Sometimes it deletes a letter, a couple words or every darn thing I type.

Also when I am in Explorer, it would "back" to a previous page until it gets to the first page I was on.

When there are no windows open, the computer continuosly "beeps" like it is trying to backspace something.

I thought it was a virus, but newly installed Norton found nothing. I also thought it was a hijacker, but Xoft Spy found nothing.

I "restored" my system with the Restore System Discs and everything was normal/quiet for about a week and a half, or so, and then the problem started again.

Really frustratung, cause I cannot type what I want and I cant seem to find the problem

HELP!!!! PLEASE!!!!

Hello Ralanders and welcome to TSF...

Couple of items you need in order to begin our process:

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad. Make sure to work through the fixes in the exact order it is mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes. You should not have any open browsers when you are following the procedures below.

Please download HijackThis http://www.greyknight17.com/spy/HijackThis.exe - this program will help us determine if there are any spyware/malware on your computer. Create a folder at C:\HJT and move HijackThis.exe there. Double click on the program to run it.

1. If it gives you an intro screen, just choose 'Do a system scan and save a logfile'.
2. If you don't get the intro screen, just hit Scan and then click on Save log.
3. Get HijackThis Analyzer http://www.greyknight17.com/spy/KRC%...20Analyzer.zip and save it to the same folder as the hijackthis.log file. Run HijackThis Analyzer and type in 'y' if you agree. The 'result.txt' file will open up in Notepad. Copy the whole result.txt log and post it in the forum. You don't need to post the original hijackthis.log (unless we ask for it). Do not fix anything in HijackThis since they may be harmless.

If you have a fast internet connection (broadband), run an online virus scan at TrendMicro http://uk.trendmicro-europe.com/ente...all_launch.php. Just follow the instructions on the site to run the online scan.... Read more

Answer:CiD ads driving me crazy

Hi, Welcome to TSG!!
You have two anti-virus programs running, which will cause trouble. Uninstall one of them.

Download OTS.exe to your Desktop and double-click on it to extract the files. It will create a folder named OTS on your desktop.

Close any open browsers.
If your Real protection or Antivirus intervenes with OTS, allow it to run.
Open the OTS folder and double-click on OTS.exe to start the program.
In Additional Scans section put a check in Disabled MS Config Items and EventViewer logs
Now click the Run Scan button on the toolbar.
The program will be scanning huge amounts of data so depending on your system it could take a long time to complete. Let it run unhindered until it finishes.
When the scan is complete Notepad will open with the report file loaded in it.
Save that notepad file
Use the Reply button, scroll down to the attachments section and attach the notepad file here.

NOTE: The only people who can see attachments in the HJT forum are: the thread starter, Admins & Mods, and HJT Helpers & Trainees.

Evening friends

So - i have a dvd burner, managed somehow! to burn a few half baked home videos using Ulead and Pinnicle software...but im at a complete loss regarding how much you can fill on one of these disks, be it dvd-r or + etc.... and whats the best disk to mess about with ie, to rewrite things over and over while i get to grips with editing my camcorder footage and checking the playback quality....Does it take a while to erase disks...why cant they be like videotapes and simply go over old footage? or can they? please help?

While im hear, not asking too much i know, but its fustrating..i have the gear but just cant seem to get the results.

I simply want to put all my vhs stuff onto disks...i want to re-edit my stuff and put on titles..ok so i have the software to do this...back to pinnicle and ulead 9.0...but like everything computer wise...sort one problem out up comes another.

Please tell me, best method ( in english ) if i want say a 2hour disk of home footage..putting on a couple of my newly edited movies and outtake clips...what disk is the best for quality. And can it be done easliy what problems will i be facing...already it comes up with, 'this disk is not empty...etc' drives me mad.

cheers
and

Answer:driving me a little crazy

Us a RW disc for testing, they can be written too many times.. Only takes a short time to erase.

Time wise the amount of footage you can put on disc depends on the bitrate. You could if you wanted get up to 7+ hours on a single 4.7 GB DVD using a very low bitrate.

Low bitrate makes a lower quality video though. There's a calculator here to help you determine bitrate: http://www.videohelp.com/calc.htm

For VHS 6000 is more than sufficient to maintain quality, that will give you about 1 1/2 hours of video on a single DVD. You can lower it, get yourself that RW and find out what's acceptable to you.

Even sending the error report doen't help. Also when I'm on PC Advisor site or any other site, there seems to be html code at the top of the page, and I have to refresh to get rid of it. Tried Adaware etc and its still there. Any ideas why I'm getting this problem?

Question: driving me crazy!

I need a little help, I know most of you will laugh at me for being so stupid, but I am trying to learn all of this. First of all, I have 5 computers networked, w/swbell DSL, a firewall an antivirus protection, and running xp. Why is it that every 2 or 3 seconds I am ambushed by pop up adds so bad that I can not do my work? I do not leave my browser up, I have a pop up stopper HA HA the ad-ware program is forever interrupting me to let me know it has quarantined an unheard of amount of files. This is driving me crazy, do you have any suggestions? I would deeply appreciate it. Thanks Matti
 

Answer:driving me crazy!

first thing to do is disable the messenger service In Windows XP, you can do this through the Control Panel. Navigate to Administrative Tools | Services. Double-click on Messenger and click on Stop. Then set the Startup type to disabled

if this doesnt help you may have got some nasty spyware so post back and we can take it from there

Hi all. I've been reading this site for quite a while and have solved many computer issues with your advice. However, this one is driving me crazy. I have a Dell 1501 Inspiron Laptop. Here's the issues I'm having.

1) Keyboard Lag (on and off) 2-3 second lag
2) Can not shut down, restart, or hibernate XP from the start menu. I have to use the power button to shut down.
3) Screen saver will not work
4) Internet explorer 8 will stop responding after being online for 5-10 mins

Suspecting a virus/malaware these are the programs I have already run:
1) Symantic Anti-Virus
2) Spybot Search and destroy
3) Malwarebytes
4) SmitFraudFix
5) Combofix
6) Superantispyware
7) AVG 2011 Free edition
8) CCleaner

I am out of ideas. Please help. The next step I would have tried was Dr. Web Cureit.
Thanks

Answer:XP Driving me Crazy.

Have you tried a clean install?

The symptoms you describe...don't seem to be typical malware symptoms, IMO...while they do seem to indicate that your O/S is not performing as it should.

Recently I was running my desktop with 1gig ram (2x512), since the pc is used as "server" for small business purpose of running company software on sql i thought i could boost speed by maxing out memory.

So I bought 4 1gig chips and installed them, everything seemed to be working okay until ever so frequently the blue screen of death would show up and the computer would restart automatically.

I ran memtest86 and the chips passed, however in windows memory diagnostic they failed the LRAND test. I ran it all night and failed 80 plus times, all four chips.

I later found out that 32 bit systems cannot read more than 3.62 gigs, so i removed two 1 gig chips and now running on 2x512 + 2x1024 which brings the ram to 3gigs now. After running windows server 2003 for five minutes, bam! the same thing all over again. blue screen of death showing "irql_not_less_or_equal"

I know the RAM is the issue but why and how can i fix it is what i need to know. someone mentioned it might be the motherboard, but can that be the issue if only the 2 512mb chips work with no problems?

Please help.
 

Answer:RAM is driving my PC crazy!

You'll need to check each chip individual by having them installed 1gb at a time. I'd put the two 512mb chips back in and then one of the 1gb chips and see how that does for a while, etc.

Question: driving me CRAZY

OK, so I've used 20 cd r's and tried compressing through operating system, but still have gotten nowhere. Trying to take video from an 8mm camcorder and burn it on a data disc, so as when it is put into any computer, new or old, it will automatically play. Problem is, video is way to big to fit on the discs and dob't know how to compress it through Nero so it fits. Have tried video cd, but end up with alot of file icons (which are confusing to clients) and have to open the proper file with the "how would you like to open this" whcih is also confusing and time consuming. Any suggestions? Anyone. Many thanks........Scott
 

Answer:driving me CRAZY

Most video files such as DivX and Mpeg4 are alredy compressed, and cant be compressed any further. If you really want to put it on a cd you will have to divide the film into sections eg. 1000mgs = 2x 500mb parts. As far as i know this can be achieved with windows movie maker, or any other video authoring software.

Hope this helps, if you really want it on one cd, try a Dual Layer DVD rewirter you'll be able to fit it on there.

I keep getting partypoker, winfixer and other random pop-ups which are driving me crazy. This happens even when I do not have IE running. Stupidly, I'd left my laptop on the other night with the volume up as I'd been watching a movie. At approximately 3am, I was awakened by someone shouting. After recovering from my heart attack, I realised that the shouting was coming from the computer. I need to get this crap off of my computer.

I use Zone Alarms firewall, Symantec AntiVirus along with Spybot, Spy Sweeper and Microsoft AntiSpyware and they all find nothing. I've read 1000 forums, tried using Virtumundobegone (which found nothing apart from the odd statcounter cookie) and have tried to analyse my own Hijackthis log but cannot see anything that is mentioned on the web (arggh - I just got another partypoker popup as i type this).

A few days ago I was eating lunch went to the kitchen and my pc had rebooted not by me. Ever since the thing has run very slow, and seems like loads of things are running.

When it started up, my symantec had the msg pop up saying "Live Update Warning! There is not enough disk space to install all available updates. Click 'Yes' for help on freeing up disk space." There was 72G free just before the pc rebooted, with about 35G in the recycle bin. Now only 1 file in the recycle bin and I've gotten several different sized free when I go to my computer to see properties of c drive. I've gotten 72G, 44g, 0 space and a few others.

I ran Malwarebytes, Ad-aware, and Avast in safe mode, all of which said it found something, and I needed to reboot to let it work at start up, but none actually came back on when windows started.

Stored videos/music run VERY slow, if I type something in the google chrome search bar and hit enter, most of the time nothing happens. The strangest thing seems to be that the longer it runs the slower it gets... Usually Ican figure this stuff out but this one is driving me crazy! Thanks in advance!!!

Hi, Since I replaced the nic card on my computer, I cannot longer play certain games on Pogo.com. I have never had this problem before and its driving me crazy.

I can play games like Word Whomp, and Bookworm, but if I want to play Chess or Dominoes, the computer freezes solid and I have to re-boot. It lets me open the windows and choose a table, but when I click on "Okay" that's when it freezes. I have disabled the Pop-up stopper, but it does the same. I have tried playing from Firefox, but there's no change. What went wrong?

Pogo is the only site that I know of where they let you set up a private room, and since I play games against my young grandson, I like that feature a lot.

Has anyone in here experience anything like this, and how was it fixed?

Thank you in advance,

Annie

I guess you never installed HijackThis properly last time you were here. See step 7 of the READ ME ad get HJT installed correctly for future use. You have it here:

C:\Documents and Settings\Bruce\Desktop\HijackThis.exe

This is exactly where we request it not be installed.

However, you logs show no malware. Perhaps you should have followed what was given in the last message to you by D3m3nt3d in your previous thread. And that is:

Answer:aol 9 driving me crazy

Install AOL 9 drivers for the modem (Broadband) without installing the rest of the software, the drivers are on the version 9 CD. I believe this also applies to dial-up as well.You will need to un-install all AOL software from your PC the use your username and password to enable the connection of a broadband modem, if dial-up then the same will apply.Use the new connection wizard to make a connection to AOL inserting Username/Password into your settings as you would with any other ISP. This will now give you access to AOL without the desktop or other software.Use IE6 or browser of choice to surf the net. For your email requirements, use Express or again any email client you wish. Check with AOL Keyword, "IMAP" for settings of Express.

I have 3 hotmail accounts that come through OE6. The last couple of days one of them started acting really strange. It started out giving my mail doubled. I had 2 of every e-mail I got. Yesterday, I noticed I could not send an e-mail. I got this error message:
"The server reported an internal error. Account: 'Hotmail', Server: 'http://services.msn.com/svcs/hotmail/httpmail.asp', Protocol: HTTPMail, Server Response: 'Internal Server Error', Port: 0, Secure(SSL): No, Error Number: 0x800CCC3D"
Then I noticed in my preview screen of the e-mail on the same account this message:
"Message could not be displayed
Outlook Express encountered an unexpected problem while displaying this message. Check your computer for low memory or low disk space and try again."
And a little box comes up with this error message:
"Outlook Express could not download the requested message. It is likely that the message was removed or expired from the server. Subject 'Recommendation from [email protected]', Account: 'blessed1202', Server: 'http://services.msn.com/svcs/hotmail/httpmail.asp', Protocol: HTTPMail, Server Response: 'Internal Server Error', Port: 0, Secure(SSL): No, Error Number: 0x800CCC3D"

I have this problem which started last night, and it's driving me nuts! I keep getting a sound like plugging and unplugging something into the USB slot. While this is happening, it also freezes my computer and mouse for maybe 3-5 seconds. This happens sporadically, sometimes continuously for 8-10 times in a row. I have noticed sometimes that if I leave my mouse sit for a while that it will stop and as soon as I move the mouse it starts again. I notice it mostly online, but it does do it off line also sometimes. Please help!

I am trying to connect OVER the internet to a PC on a network.

Network IP addresses are usually 192.168.1.1xx - However, to connect to an IP over the internet, you cannot use the network's IP address (192.168.1.1xx). You have to use the internet IP address.

Is there anyway to connect to the internet IP address, and then specify which network IP to connect to (ex..: 192.168.1.100)?

If you are on a network, is there no way to access that computer through the internet???

I cannot figure this out and it is driving me nuts.

Thx for any help u have to offer.

Answer:This is driving me CRAZY!!!

what type of connection are u tring to make... examples- FTP, p2p, mIRC, vpn?

connecting threw a FTP, p2p, or messanger client is very simple.

if your trying make a connection like like a basic Lan network conection, except over the net, u need VPN software. there are some free VPN softwere stuff out there, i dont remember were though.

it may be simpler for u to just use a FTP client, or a Messanger client like Trillian, depending on what your trying to acomplish here.

witch ever way u choose though, thy all sorta connect the same way. u have to specify the port # inside the specific client(ex- like if u use cuteFTP) once u specify the port # and password on the LAN computer, the computer on the WAN side(were u are) also needs to be configured to the same port(or port range). and the router for the LAN comp has to forward that port(or port range) to the specific LAN ip, like 192.168.1.1XX.
------------------------------------------------------------------
FTP, mIRC, and VPN... alow u to specify a dirctory(or Directorys) to be browsed(and with permissions set-allows for upload/download) by outside users, using the specified port, and proper pasword/nick identification.

i havnt used a massaging client ina long time, so i dont know if maybe thy also allow u to set browsable directorys. seems resonable that thy mayhave added that feature by now, im not shur. last time i used a IM client i think u can only send/recieve files from buddys, not browse them, i think...

I'm having a problem loading the motherboard software - using the express installer. Its an Intel board that claims to have USB 2.0 type ports, however after I had the OS installed etc. I pluged in my iPod only to get an error saying I had a fast device plugged into a slow port.
I then remembered I had forgotten to install the MB software, aso I tried to install using the Express installer CD that came with the board. This got about 50% through and then put the system into shutdown, upon re-start you get to the windows start up screen and then nothing, you never reach the login screen.
So I decided to start at the beginning again and re-loaded the OS. So I was back getting the same USB error. Then I tried installing the MB software manually (as recommended on the Intel site) but again I have the same issue. So to get anywhere I need to install the OS again.
What am I doing wrong?
Do I need to get the MB software loaded first? and if so how do I wipe the HD in order to do that.
Or
With the OS installed how do I install the MB stuff and get the USB ports functioning properly?
 

Answer:its driving me crazy!!!

The reason why you are getting the message is because your motherboard might not support USB 2.0 speed.

Read this forum http://forums.techguy.org/t340223.html and you should be able to find out whether your motherboard can support USB 2.0.

Question: Driving me crazy!

Hi,

New to the site so hello all. I'm having an issue and I'm not quite sure what it is, when I'm on the net and using my usual websites (Facebook, business stuff etc) I could be on it and if I need to do something I may close them and sometimes when I come back I try to open the same website I was just on say 5 minutes ago I get an error message saying "This webpage is not available, ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED" Keeping in mind I was on the website not long ago?? When I try other pages they seem to work fine, This is very frustrating as the only way to solve it sometimes is to restart the computer so I can get on the page I want. Has anyone got any ideas what this could be? I use Google Chrome if that makes a difference.

Thanks

Ok, so i built this computer about 9-10 months ago. i have had this problem from the very first boot up and i have yet to figure out what it is.

I realized it for the first time when i started playing WoW. Every few minutes, my computer freezes up and the sound starts stuttering. This will go on for 4-5 seconds then normal play will resume. This gets very annoying, especially in PvP.

I get the same problem with all the high-end games i play: Half-life 2, UT 2k4, etc. I can play the original half-life and other older games with no problems at all.

Also, when i try to rip music CDs to my harddrive, using either windows media or iTunes, my sound starts stuttering like it does in-game and i get the infamous blue screen of death.

The BSoD gives me this error:

STOP: 0x0000009c (0x00000004, 0x80545FF0, 0xB2000000, 0x00070F0F)

im not quite sure what that means...

AMD Athelon 3400+

1 GB of Geil ultra RAM

What exactly happens at the loading screen?

By saying some programs run slow, I assume you mean that other than that and the loading screen, the computer runs normally?

Since a few days, for some misterious reasons, when I go to hotmail login page, I put my user ID and password, I press log in and I get the blank page....
Then I put this following proxy server, it's just a free random one, u103n202.hfx.eastlink.ca and sometimes I succeed to log in the internet, other times not.

Where do I begin...

Well first, I had my homepage continually being changed to "about:blank" but i think i fixed that.

Next, every once ina while when I will just type in a website (hotmail, google, etc) it will redirect me to adult pages and popups one after another.

Besides that, a constant problem is that when I click on a link in IE, the program freezes for at least 10 seconds, with the hourglass mouse, and the little IE flag thing up in the right corner doesn't do that motion thing it does when loading a page, until after the program freezes for a bit.

FYI: I have done repeated virus scans, and scans using SpyBot search and destroy, Xoft Spy, NoAdware, and have used CWShredder (whihch I believe got rid of the about:blank homepage).

PLEASE HELP ME this is driving me crazy!!!

Thanks for reading this

Hey all havent posted for ages lol

Anyway recently i just bought some new RAM

DDR-SDRAM 1GB (2 sticks of 512) Corsair

My motherboard is a

DFI LanParty UT nF3 250Gb (Socket 754) Motherboard (MB-010-DF)

To make my new memory run its best i need to know which 2 of the free RAM ports i must use for this to work.(my motherboard booklet does not say anything *sigh*)

Also i have been getting a lot more BSOD's. This usually happens when im playing battlefield 2 or unusually when im listening to music while surfing the net.

I can't for the life of me figure out how to stop this unusual amount of BSOD's or figure out why this is happening can anyone help me?

A reply would be greatly appriciated

Thanks and have a great new year!

Sauce
 

Answer:RAM driving me crazy!! :S

Can't really help you with the RAM issue, but have you considered the possibility that your computer is overheating? The BSOD's sound as though they occur when you are doing something that could require a fair bit of processing power (graphics or music). Maybe try improving airflow inside the case and see if that helps.

Before going through the full malware removal process you should install, update and run MalwareBytesAntiMalware (MBAM). It's a powerful scanner and may well be able to remove the nuisance causing this.

Question: Driving me crazy

Several months ago when I shut the computer down the light indicating hard drive activity would go out but the power light would stay on. I turned the power off using the switch on the power supply. When I attempted to restart the computer it would not boot up. I decided to do a clean install using the OEM disk that I purchased when I built the computer several years ago. I went through the steps of doing a clean install and the installation would get to the "completing installation" step and after a couple of minutes the screen would go black. I tried to use the Windows disk to do a start up repair several times. The process would show that Windows 7 was installed and all of the repair sets were successfully. I tried new hard drives and downloaded an ISO file from Microsoft. I read someplace that the ASUS A8N SLI Deluxe, which was the motherboard I was using, would not run windows 7. I had used this motherboard for about 8 years running window 7 but I decided to replace everything except the video card and solve my problem. Now with a new motherboard, new CPU, new memory and a new power supply, I am still having the same problem. The installation is normal until it attempts the last restart and it dies. I have decided it is me that is causing the problem but I do not know what I am doing wrong and must be repeating my error each time I try to do a clean install.
Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Go here and do an online virus scan.

Be sure and put a check in the box by "Auto Clean" before you do the scan. If it finds anything that it cannot clean have it delete it or make a note of the exact file name and file location so you can delete it yourself.

Go here and do another online virus scan.

reboot

and post a new HJT log .

But, here's the pain in the ass... By the end of the mpeg4 clip, the sound is off from the video by many seconds.

What's the deal here?

You can download pocketdivxencoder to fix this. You extract to the VOB then convert the VOB to an AVI with pocketdivxencoder then convert the avi to your mp4. The exact settings were on pocketdivxenc when i was doing this with my PSP but it is the step that cleared up my audio sync issues.

I hope someone can help me fast, but I have an HP computer with 37.2 GB harddrive, 256 RAM, PIII, but don't really know what the GHz are. But my problem that everytime I start my computer, it works somewhat fine, but it takes a little longer than it should. Then like an hour or two later, my computer starts moving very slow, with the audio becoming very slow and hesistant. As I move my mouse across the screen, it slowly hesistants and also takes a long time to open folders. It's hard for me to explain this, but everything takes long to do than usually.
 

Answer:Driving Me Crazy

how well do you maintain your computer?

there are 3 things which every user SHOULD be doing on a regular basis to keep their computer clean

1) you need a nice AntiVirus with up to date definitions. if you need one, I
recommend Avast! free edition, available on MajorGeeks.
2) Adware/Spyware removing tools. It's a very good idea to run Ad-Aware, and Spybot Search & Destroy once every week or so. also available on MG.
3) a Firewall. If you have WindowsXP, upgradeing to SP2 will give you a better windows firewall and some other security features, but be warned there may be some trouble if you do so. a nice freeware firewall is the Kerio restriced version, or ZoneAlarm.


if you keep on top of those three categories, you should notice a nice increase of performance from your computer, that is pretty easily maintained.

Since yesterday I have had pop-ups on my computer when I am not using it. I haven't added anything differently, but I have noticed that my 2004 Norton Internet Security isn't working like it should. It has for some reason disabled my ability to do any kind of ftp unless I disable my internet security which isn't what I want to do. Here is my hijackthis.log file please help me

Question: Driving me crazy!

Okay, every now and then when I try to install something it comes up with this error '1608: Unable to create InstallDriver instance, Return Code: -2147024894'.
Now I've been directed to this page 'http://consumer.installshield.com/kb.asp?id=Q108440' and i've tried everything.

Now my problem is that when I try to configure the DCOM settings it keeps closing. I run dcomcnfg and that works fine, I click Component services and that works fine also. But then when I click the folder Computers it just closes and it closes every time I do it. Why does it close? This is really driving me crazy because I can't install the software needed for my iPod that I just bought for $350 and atleast half of the games I want to play don't work either.

I am running Windows Xp Professional with the Service pack 2 installed.
Please someone help me.

Answer:THis is driving me Crazy! Hjt Log....Please see if you can help

I see no problems in the Scanlog at all. If you check the Process tab in the Task Manager, is anything consuming very high cpu resources? Ignore "system idle process" which should be very high.

Processors will normally slow down if overheated, so that might be something to look into.

Main router: D-link 4500 with 1.02 firmware (so none of the crazy nonsense of the "advanced" firmwares). Runs great.

Secondary router: Linksys 300N flashed with latest DDWRT.

What I am trying to do is use the "N" band to connect the Linksys to the d-link. Then to the Linksys I would connect my PS3 and Tivo.

I have scoured the web for a guide and I have found them, but I still can't get the damn thing to connect.

I have been using a G based Linksys (flashed with Tomato firmware) and it is working great. I am making the jump to stream movies (esp blurays) and need the speed of the N band.

I really think there is a simple mistake that I am making or something left out of the instructions. Any ideas?

Repeater

Client Bridged

I do know the D-link operates at 192.168.0.1 so I changed the Linksys to 192.168.0.2 and once that was done, I was unable to access the router. Needed to reset the router.

I did remember to disable (power down) my G based linksys to avoid any conflict with my N based linksys.

I posted this in the Google Help forum but they always take so long to respond so I decided to post this here too for a second opinion.

This involves a bug (maybe?) I noticed in Gmail just a bit ago.

I sent myself a message (titled "mtd3", I send myself messages to transfer thing between two computers sometimes) with three attachments and the names of those messages. I noticed I sent while sending the message, so I deleted it, deleted it from the trash and started the process to send it again to me with the same name ("mtd3"), same text, but in a different order and the same attachments.

so, I noticed that while I was uploading my attachments, the deleted message returned! I deleted that and my new one and started a new one with the same attachments but a different name ("momadada"). Nothing happened, but I deleted that one anyway. So then I started on another message with a different name ("mothdath")/same attachments/same text and the message I just deleted came back into my inbox!

I then put these in attachments in rar files, and no repeats happened while I was composing or sending the messages with the rar attachments.

Later on, I was just looking through my inbox, and one of these deleted messages with my .mp3 attachments returned to my inbox again!

So how am I getting these messages I sent myself that I deleted from my inbox and my trash?

The attachments are some music files I am transferring from the computer I am borrowin... Read more

I purchase a touch screen lcd and it arrived today. Before I installed the software I plugged in the USB touch controller the add new hardware prompt came up so I used that to get it ready to use. Then I installed the supplied software for the touch screen and when I went to configure it there was no trace of it in the software itself. I then double checked the device manager section and the monitor was listed as "plug and play monitor". I then uninstalled the drivers, rebooted, installed the software first, rebooted, plugged in the USB and VGA plugs, and the software still doesn't show the USB controller. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

i have tp-link TD-8840, it keeps rebooting every day roughly at the same time for about two to four hours, power led keeps blinking whenever it tries to connect to gateway! it helps sometimes if i remove all of the LAN cables, or if i only keep one cable in, but once i plug another one, it starts rebooting! (doesn't matter which pc is it) it looks like something to do with my electric current?

i tried to reset it to factor defaults, hard reset via the button on the back, updated firmware, no luck! it just keeps rebooting at the same time, even sometimes all LEDS keep blinking, all four of them, no matter if there's a cable plugged or not!

somebody plz help!

Hey, I've been having this problem for quite a while now, I will be playing WoW or CoD and just randomly receive spikes then in the next 20 mins it will be fine again, and then spike again. It doesn't happen every day but when it does it very fustrating as you can imagine.

I've contacted my ISP (Virgin Media UK) and they've told me to test the connection which is a strong 9.5MBS, so they've said its a 'firewall issue' so I've turned off firewars, windows + norton which im using and it will still spike. I use a Belkin Router to connect via my modem and I've ran several tests using software and the connection to the router is almost instant (always 1-3MS) but its the connection to the ISP server's which is driving me crazy.

Ill check the connection just thoughout the day and it will be a steady 30MS, but maybe later on it will spikes to 600+ which is unplayable. After having this problem for months on all my PCs sharing the same connection I've run out of ideas. If anyone could through me some ideas of what i do / test please dont hesitate to post, thanks alot in advance.

Laptop is a Pavilion dv6
GPU: Radeon 6770M and Intel Integrated Graphics
(Switchable Graphics capability)

Just ask if you would like further system specs, but I believe this problem is isolated to my GPU and more specifically the drivers

This all started when I wanted to update my GPU drivers to fix a crashing problem I had playing Battlefield 3, seemed simple enough; so I update using the auto detect feature from AMDs website; all good, then I notice something weird: In the device manager it picks up my GPU as a 6700M, not a 6770M

So, I right click on my driver and click update; all fixed, BUT the capability to use dynamic switchable graphics is gone, leaving me with a poopy Integrated Graphics card.

I scour the internet for a fix and I find a tutorial that sounded pretty legit which consisted of installing specific drivers from AMD, but it still didn't work

This causes me to go into BIOS and switch it over to fixed mode, okay I can use the 6770M again BUT; whenever booting up it seems like the back-light doesn't seem to work properly, it's stuck on the lowest setting and it cant go up.

A fix for THIS problem was going into Catalyst Control Center and switching back and forth between Power saving GPU and High Power GPU Until one of two things happen:
1. The backlight works and I carry on the rest of the day happily using my laptop

OR

2. The damn thing bluescreens

Bluescreens aren't healthy so I click update again from Device Manager and bluescr... Read more

Answer:(GPU) Drivers Driving me crazy

You could try a restore point prior to the driver issue, or... download the correct driver from the H.P. site.
Using generic drivers from AMD for a laptop can cause problems.

If you could tell me how to get rid of those :*** balloons, I'll be forever in your debt. I get the tips balloons and whenever my mouse point to a folder of file, it gives me the information about it and it drives me crazy. I've disabled balloons but I still get them. It's like someone standing in front of the tv when you're trying to watch something.

There's one other setting that needs to be changed but I've tried a number of combinations and can't come up with the right one. I get the top bar that says




This website is using a scripted window and is asking you for information. If you trust this website, click her to allow scripted windows.Click to expand...

I get this notice whenever I want to create a new folder in my Yahoo email and when I want to do some other common tasks, and the option to "always allow" isn't available, only "temporarily allow." I've gone into Internet Options and have checked all boxes to allow scripted windows except for ones that don't have a certificate. I recently reset the settings to default to see if it would help but it hasn't.

These things started happening about 6 months ago or more while I was still using IE6 and now that I use IE7, they continue to occur.

Can anyone help?
 

Answer:Settings that are driving me crazy!

See if this works, I have never seen a balloon but this should stop it hopefully.

1. Goto Control Panel
2. Click Folder Options (in the classic view)
3. Click the View tab
4. Unselect the Show pop-up description for folder and desktop items option
5. Click OK
