Pre-teen installed unknown program?

Q: Pre-teen installed unknown program?

Hi:
Not even sure if this is the right place. My pre-teen cousin installed WINAMP on my mother's computer.
1. Is this a legal program? Is it any good? Does it cost anything monthly?

2. Now The sound on her computer doesn't work. I get an error message from NullSoft. "bad direct sound driver. PLEASE INSTALL Proper drivers OR SELECT another device in configuration." Error Code 887800A

Anything yu can tell me about this or how to fix will be deeply appreciated.

Thanks. wildbill

Preferred Solution: Pre-teen installed unknown program?

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hi all..

This is my 2nd post in here. Before i start, pardon me for my poor English and non-high tech brain.

I really need help. Ok, this going to be a long post. But let me inform of my laptop first, my laptop is Compaq Presario CQ40-538TU, 32 bit, using Windows 7 Ultimate. I'm a heavy laptop user. i use it around 6-7 hours in workdays, and it could reach to 24 hours non-stop in weekend, sometimes even to 1,5 days (36 hours) to 48 hours in weekend. i mostly use my laptop to browse some websites i visit often and to watched movies/dramas i downloaded.

Few days ago (on July 22nd) when i started my laptop i got this message :

"Checking file system on C: The type of the file system is NTFS. One of your disk needs to be checked for consistency. You can cancel the disk check, but it is strongly recommended that you continue. To skip disk checking, press any key within(10)seconds."

it happened before,and usually it completed the checking to all the 3 stages. but now it shows this :

"Cannot open volume for direct access. Autochk cannot run due to an error caused by a recently installed software package. Use the system restore feature from the control panel to restore the system to a point prior to the recent software package installation.
An unspecified error occured (766f6c756d652e63 3f1)"

I searched the site for a while and couldn't find an answer.... so I decided to post my question... sorry if this has been asked before.

Somehow every .IFO file on my computer (using XP) has been set to open with notepad as the default.... these files were from movies I've backed up to my computer, and when I burn the movies to a disc they burn properly, but then they won't read correctly when played on the dvd player. At first I thought it was just the type of discs I was using.. but later realized that the problem never occurred before I noticed all the .IFO files as default set to open with notepad.

What I need to know is how to set the properties of my .IFO files to read as Unknown application instead of Notepad.

Thanks ahead of time to anyone who can help.

Hi everyone,

I'm currently running BitDefender 9 but it is going to expire in a few days time so I was after the new version. I downloaded the trial from the BitDefender website but when I tried to install it, I was told I needed to uninstall my current version.

I went to Add/Remove programs like usual but for some reason BitDefender is not listed. I went to BitDefender in programs and clicked 'modify, repair or uninstall' and it tells me 'this action is only valid for products that are currently installed'.

I have no idea how I'm meant to uninstall BitDefender 9 since it is not listed! The program is clearly running and installed so I have no idea why it would not be shown as a currently installed program!

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

A:I have some unknown program in my program and features.

I'm assuming that you've run a malware scan that came up clean. Otherwise, run something like Malwarebytes or Adwcleaner to be sure. These seem to have Microsoft icons associated with them. If they appear in Control Panel/Programs & Features or your Program Files x84, then do a sort by installation date and see if they were installed at the same time as ASP.NET or Visual C++ or some other program. Then you'll know that they are a byproduct of something else. You may simply create a restore point, uninstall and see what happens.

I have an almost 13 year old granddaughter that is very good with logic puzzles and loves the computer and stated an interest in learning how to program games.
While I know my way around the PC, I've never done much in the line of programming. I am considering on buying her for Christmas a beginners guide to C++. My thinking is if she's going to learn she might as well gain some real life experience she can use as opposed to getting her a book on basic or something like that.
My question is two fold to you programmers. Is C++ going to be too difficult for a kid her age? And secondly any other recommendations for a simple C++ book or other suggestions if I'm not on the right path thinking about C++. I did find the MS visual C++ compiler that I downloaded for her and a beginners video from the MS website to supplement the book.
Any help will really be a appreciated.

Hi, I had an "Unknown Device Installed" window coming up at start up, could anyone give me some advice please?

Here's what I did:

- I tried to remote log in to my other computer via logmein.com (a site that I've been using for a long time)
- I was prompted to grant user account control rights to install an active x control, I've seen it before, so I did that
- Then another pop up came up saying that "A website wants to open web content using this program on your computer". The program is an AVG scanning module (avgcsrvx.exe) that belongs to my AVG, so I clicked allow.

After that, I rebooted my PC, and once it's been rebooted I see a window on my desktop titled "Driver Software Installation", with the content:

Unknown Device installed
The software for this device has been successfully installed.
Unknown Device Ready to use

I haven't initiated any installation, and the only devices I have connected are my mouse and my scanner, both of which have been installed for a long time.

I restarted in Safemode to look at my system restore points, no installation/updates are reported for today.
Can't see anything on my Add/Remove programs on my Control Panel.
I ran Spybot & Destroy, as well as Malware Bytes, and nothing came up.

Is there any way to find out what unknown device was installed on my machine?
And, does this look like a malware?

I have Windows Vista, using IE7.

Many thanks for your help! Really appreciate it.

A:Unknown Device installed

In Device Manager, right click on The unknown device and select Properties, then click on the Details tab, then on Hardware ID in the dropdown box. It should be in this format "PCI\VEN_4444&DEV_0016&SUBSYS_40090070&REV_01"The 4 numbers/letters after the first _ are the Vendor ID; the 4 numbers/letters after the second _ are the Device ID.Go to this website ( http://www.pcidatabase.com/ ) and enter the Vendor ID into the Vendor Search box. In the next page, click on the link for the vendor of that device. In the next page, search for the Device ID and let us know what it says.

Hi, when I start my computer and run my IE, the startpage changes to teen-biz.com and a bunch of porn sites are added to my Favorites folder. IE will also open on its own periodically to some porn-site. Lastly, when I shut my computer down, I receive a Winn Min error ("can't end program . . . ").

I've run Ad-Aware, Spybot, SpyHunter and CWShredder but still the above garbage occurs. Can anyone please help? I appreciate any comments. Below is my Hijackthis output. Thank you in advance.

Hello, folks.
My teen can't get enough of MySpace, YouTube and associated activities. The more she uses them, the more I have to keep cleaning out Virtumonde, Smitfraude, etc. malware that keep repeatingly placed on my PC. I'm tired of the junk! How can she keep using her favorite sites without junking up the PC with malware? I am running Win XP, antivirus is Panda Internet Security (which I love 10x better than Norton or McAfee) plus I also clean out with Spybot often (probably need to do this more often). What guidelines can I give my teen to help prevent malware? She also IM's a lot, and I'm gonna tell her about not clicking on IM links.
Frustrated Mom

A:Keep Getting Reinfected When My Teen Uses Myspace

Do you use the Firefox browser? That will definitely help. You're more likely to get infected on myspace using Internet Explorer.

Spybot is pretty ineffective these days. It was decent several years ago, but now I'd recommend Malwarebytes or SuperAntiSpyware.

Toshiba 1.8Ghz laptop
4 GB RAM (recent upgrade to memory 2x1GB, machine only sees 3GB, I can't find the cause, any advice most welcome)
160 GB HDD
Windows XP Media Center sp3

I recently 'cleaned' this computer and upgraded the memory. I left it with Eset running and it seemed fine until a 14 yr old nephew spent one session on it. When I heard about it, the browser was hanging without connecting. System control soon degraded to the point where Windows loads but that is it. Task mgr, file explorer, start button, browser... nothing works. Disk activity is evident but 'it' will not release the machine even after sitting off the ethernet wire for a substantial time after loading the OS. Safe mode available but 'it' blocks the run of Malwarebytes (though the app will load into memory). The only scans I could run were from within safe mode. not sure how useful that may be but RSIT outputs attached. I have DDS scan from safe mode I will place under separate post.

Best advice about next step please. Thank you for taking this under advisement.

So before he blows everything he's earned this summer taking orders at a fast-food joint, thought I'd ask if this will be a great choice. It's a Lenovo Y50 laptop sold on Amazon. He looked at it in a Best Buy store where it costs nearly a hundred dollars more. He's a junior in high school this year, so use will be for any school related study/research rolleyes, facebook, Minecraft and he wants to get Skyrim/Elder Scrolls downloaded once he makes his purchase.

Hello,
I hope you can help me.
My daughter is experiencing problems with her Windows ME machine. I've cleaned off what I could with Spybot and Adaware. I've also run Norton 2002 and the Micro trend on-line virus scan (although I'm not confident that the on-line scan made it to completion).

I'm seeing alot of modem activity, even when nothing else is running on her PC. She's getting icons on her desktop, pop-ups and spyware. Her machine is running very slowly and locks up on a regular basis.

I've run hijackthis and Hijackthis analyzer. The analyzer log is posted below:

When I reinstalled Office 2007, my outlook does not work, although exchange on the web works. I get the following error message:

Louis,This issue may occur if the Outlook registry key is corrupted. When other programs try to use the Outlook Simple MAPI interface, they cannot retrieve the required information from the registry.You must first remove the corrupted Outlook registry key, and then perform a Detect and Repair operation to have Outlook rebuild the key. To do this, follow these steps:
Click Start, and then click Run.
In the Open box, type regedit, and then press ENTER.
In Registry Editor, locate the following subkey in the registry: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Clients\Mail\Microsoft Outlook
Select the subkey, and then press DELETE.
Click Yes.
Quit Registry Editor.
Start Outlook.
On the Help menu, click Office Diagnostics.
Follow the instructions on the screen to complete the repair.

Important:†Above section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information about how to back up and restore the registry, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

Am not sure if this is the right place to ask for this problem, let me know.

I gave a try to the Setup Project of VStudio 2008 to create and distribute an x86 installer of a program I develop in win7.

After installing, uninstalling and executing over and over some of the features of my release distribution, I suppose I broke a windows registry or something related. I can't run anymore this app, whether from executing from the shortcut or directly, it just sends an error "Couldn't start the application correctly (0xe06d7363). Accept to close", there is no other option.

Later I found out that moving exactly the installed content somewhere else out side the Program Files x86 dir, the application works flawlessly.
Browsing, finding and deleting all references in regedit for my program didn't fix anything. I double checked my project is fine, and also created another installer version using the tool Inno setup producing exactly the same behavior; good install, error message when executing it inside the Program Files folder.
Am clueless what else to do with the OS to fix this. Using CCleaner and/or my anti virus don't show any broken reference to my program, it seems clean. Can anyone help me?

A:Can't run installed program within Program Files (x86)

When you were installing the Program did you do so in the Programs File Folder? The Program that is not portable would not normally work by installing it elsewhere and moving it to another location later.

Hello. I am new here but have been following these forums for a couple of weeks. I think the people [??] who create viruses should be treated like any other terrorist.

I have AVG and today when I opened my e-mail, I noticed a message labeled "Teen poll results" above a couple of other entries. So I used Shift and selected all three so I could delete them all at once. However Delete didn't work.

The AVG [Griswold] screen popped up and said it detected a virus. So I pressed "n" and even enter. Meanwhile, behind the AVG box, there was another box showing a file being downloaded. So I quickly clicked the Close X button for Outlook Express. I hope that cut it off at the pass.

So I have some questions:

1) Is there some way to select and delete something from my inbox without it starting to download?

2) Why didn't AVG stop this thing from down loading?

3) Assuming part of the virus downloaded, how do I find it and get rid of it?

That's enough for now. You guys are great.

I am a dad who wants to give his rebellious pre-teen daughter some control on her laptop, like update iTunes or install games, but she cannot do such as a Standard User.

I initially setup her laptop with both of us (dad and daughter) as admin users. I wanted to be an admin user to help install updates, backup, and check for viruses, etc... Dad as "Home IT guy".

However, in her rebellious attitude over the last couple of months, she removed me as an admin; so, I had no way for login. Pissed IT dad.

IT dad took her laptop away for a week, demanded her password, created IT dad as admin and changed frustrated daughter into standard user.

All fine. No. Daughter wants to upgrade iTunes (admin login required), install games (admin login required), etc... (admin login required). Non-IT mom does not want to do IT stuff (i.e. "admin login required" stuff).

Is there a way to allow my daughter (degraded to Standard User) to have some admin privileges (to perform upgrades and downloads without "admin login required"), but without having the permissions from removing other administrators (i.e. IT dad)?

In other words, IT parents as Uber-Administrators and User children as Limited-Adminstrators (i.e., cannot remove a Uber-Adminstrator but can upgrade and download software)?

IT Dad wants to know, thx

A:Windows 7 Pro: Parent adminstration control and rebellious pre-teen

Sorry, I dont have an answer for you, but I'm in exactly the same boat. because I have three sons that install programs and updates like your daughter, that required me to intervene on a multiple-times-per-days basis I gave my kids administrative accounts on their own computers.

BIG MISTAKE!!

I use OpenDNS to prevent access to undesirable web stuff, and so I can have some semblence of knowledge of what is going on. But they hack, and they crack and they circumvent every bit of security I add.

Now I am considering setting them to standard users. And that means non-stop whining, negatively charged atmosphere, and daily interventions by me to install, update, remove and configure things on their PCs.

I feel for you. I hope someone here will be able to offer some guidance to us frustrated parents.

I have a couple of older Dell laptops here of the Windows 98 vintage. They have more than ample hard disks and 64 megs of RAM. I'm thinking of turning them into NetBooks for a couple of 10- and 12-year-olds. The laptops both have good batteries USB ports and PCMCIA slots so wireless will be an easy task.

Here's the question: How practical a job is this and what OS would be best?

I know just a very little about NetBooks, mostly what I've learned by looking at them on the store shelves.
