Bunch Of A010... Files

Q: Bunch Of A010... Files

Just about every time I'm on the computer, either AVG or Prevx1 finds a bunch of files that begin with A010...with various numbers. Extensions include exe, bat, com, and dll. I feel like I have a serious problem here. What do I do?!?

Preferred Solution: Bunch Of A010... Files

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.)

I wish I knew when this happened. I added a DNS 323 network drive back in April, and interestingly the .dcm extension files all date to the 16th of April. I think it must have something to do with the Memeo software that came with the drive. Is there anyway to get the files out of .dcm and back to what they were? There is so much stuff that I thought I had that would be gone. Getting it back would be nice.

A:A bunch of my files have been converted to .dcm and not by me and now I need them

if you know what each file is right click it and choose open with, use the bit that lets you choose from the list and then tick the box that says "always use this program to open the file"

Hello. Someone please kindly help me and I will be so very appreciative.
I have a pretty new computer and Windows 8. (I am not skilled in Windows 8 fyi.)
This morning I rebooted my computer. I noticed that it said it was doing some sort of update.
When the computer restarted, I lost all my files (pdf's and Word documents) that had been on my desktop. The desktop had a 'flower' in the background and seems all different.
Also, google chrome was gone, so I had to reinstall that.
Google drive 'showed' somewhere, but some prompt told me I had to reinstall that, so I reinstalled it.
When I look in google drive all of my recent files (again, lots of Word documents and pdf's) are gone: The most recent date if 12-2-12.
I need all of my files back, and I am clueless on what to do. Most of my files had been stored in Google Drive, but some I kept on the desktop. I always made a 'backup', so I thought that would protect me.
Please help me.
If anyone is in the USA and willing to speak with me, please let me know that.

Allright, so when I woke up this morning and turned my computer on/logged into my user account, I got an error I'd never seen before. I didn't think much of it at the time, so I didn't note exactly what it said, but it was something about a problem with "aawservice.exe", which is an Ad-Aware file (as far as I know). So I closed that and tried to sign into MSN, at which point I received another error, this time saying, "Windows Live Messenger has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience." I tried a few more times and continued to get the same error. Firefox seemed to be working fine, aside from the security notice I was getting every time I had to login to a site (Facebook, etc.). A few minutes after I had logged in, I got another random "...has encountered a problem and needs to close..." error, this time for "jusched.exe". I tried restarting my computer a couple of times and got the exact same results, so I tried a boot-time scan with Avast and it found nothing. After that, I logged back into my user account and tried MSN one more time, only to find that I had accidentally deleted the main .exe file for it....so I went to the Windows Live Messenger site and downloaded the installation file. During the installation, I got yet another "...has encountered a problem and needs to close..." error, this time for the installation itself. I re-tried it and got the same error again, at...

I got a copy of windows 7 professional and it will not allow me to just upgrade to it from vista home basic so I have to back up a lot of random stuff onto DVDs. I 136GBs of steam games and I would rather not have to download them all again once I install windows 7. Is there a way I can divide my 136gb steam apps folder amongst a bunch of DVDs then extract it into a new steam installation in windows 7? I would rather not use 7z to make a bunch of seperate files because it would take so long. Though if you know of settings that would allow it to compress everything into a bunch of seperate files faster please tell me!

A:Is there software that backs up any files onto a bunch of DVDs?

That's going to be a lot of DVD's. You don't have a spare hard drive sitting around that you can use for backups? How about just buying a cheap HD and using that for the OS and the current drive for games/files?

Okay, so first of all I realize deleting things in the registry is really dumb. Well I was trying to extract some files using winrar and I kept getting the program not responding error. So I tried to uninstall winrar and it said that the file was in use. So basically I went in the registry and started deleting anything that said winrar......

The next time I rebooted, after I signed in all that was showing was my desktop wallpaper. I used control-alt-delete and was able to open firefox from there to get the command line for system restore. I then used system restore to go back to 3 days before I deleted the files. Well that brought back the files on my desktop, start menu/taskbar, etc.

Unfortunately there are still a few problems. While running firefox, there is a grey bar inbetween my taskbar and the internet window that says things like "transferring data from www.bleeping....". The grey box is blank except for one red " ^ " at the far left. Also it will not let me use commands like ctrl+P for printing or ctrl+D to bookmark or any other commands. Also I cannot click on buttons or else I would host some images via imageshack.

I did not back up my registry so any backup programs won't help. Is there a registry fixing program out there or anything else I can do? I already tried a second system restore that went back a week before the "file deleting" and that didn't help.

Does HP have any remote control app which canbe used to control volume etc.. for HP Pavilion 27-a010   

A:HP Pavilion 27-a010

If you are talking about using your phone as a remote control, then there are several apps for Android or Apple products that allow you to do this. Just search the app stores for PC and remote... you'll need to install the app on your phone and software on your PC from the app manufacturer's web site. I think Google has a remote desktop app if youhave android.

I am wishing to upgrade the hard drive in my new Envy AIO since it came with only a 5400rpm drive to a hybrid 7200rpm. I have read from previous posts that it is difficult due to the location of the drive sitting behind the curved monitor and to access it you have to remove it. I also have watched a video on someone doing this but they didn't mention how they were able to over come the strong adhesive that attaches the bevel to the monitor without breaking the screen. Is there a documented way to remove the bevel without force? This seems to be a poor engineering design for hard drive replacement or upgrades as well as memory grades where you have to go a step furhter and remove the motherboard since the RAm is located on the back side with no access. I am a computer engineer and very hardware savy and am very concerned about opening up the system to upgrade the hard drive. Any suggestions for removing the bevel safely would be greatly appreciated.

Ok, I had purchased this computer for a job and was ok for a while now they are saying I need to upgrade the processor. Thats fine no problem there till I started doing research and found out the I can't. I only had this computer for approx 6 months I feel I was not given all info on the system when I bought it. I believed and was told it was new however after digging around the system more it is not. My question is can this system be upgraded with a new motherboard and cpu. This is the only way I can keep my job. I can't afford a new computer. I know the processor can not that is why I am asking about the motherboard in order to do the upgrade. This is the first time I ever came across this situation.

A:upgrade on slimline hp 260-a010

With the processor being non-upgradeable, a new motherboard that fits in the case would not be that difficult.  It isMini ITXDimensions: 17.0x17.0 cm (6.7x6.7 in)Just start shopping for that size motherboard that can use the Memory you have in that unit.  Then also pick an appropriate CPU.  It does not need to be in compliance as a HP replacement as the Windows will not transfer either.  Which means a new Windows install or Linux

I have a project where I need to search a large amount of text files on my home PC. I recently upgraded from Windows XP to Windows 7. My research indicated this feature was available in Windows 7.

If you do a search in Windows XP, you get a bunch of fields. You can pick to search for text INSIDE the particular sub folder structure.

I have found this feature in Windows 7, but it is different. I have tried using wild cards but it does not seem to work properly.

Thanks for any advice, if you need further assistance, I could make a video to show the issue.

Hey I've been hit with some nasty malware a while ago (antivirus 2011); I was able to get rid of it with Malwarebytes but after a while my computer started to worsen on its own...I noticed while playing videos/games It would shudder and skip for a while both video and audio so I checked the task manager and I would notice that I was getting 100% CPU... it would usually come from the game or video program I was using (World of Warcraft and KMPLAYER) it would spike up to 60 CPU and stay there for a good 30 seconds and then come back to normal thus making playing the game or video nearly impossible

I get redirects to a website called goingonearth.com which seem to be dead links because they don't actually send me to a website but it only happens with google.com and it really doesn't bother me much because it doesn't redirect me 100% of the time I'm more concerned about the CPU virus

Things I tried: (both normal and safe booted)
Combofix (Does not get past scanning)

I would love help from anyone possible I've looked around and found no solution..

Hey there,

My computer got infected with some virusses which I can't manage to destroy. After having used alot of anti-vuirusscanners etc. I'm near the point of desperation. The programs simply can't manage to delete the virusses.
I have used the following programs:

Most of the time it keeps finding 3 threats. A 0Rootkit and 2 Trojans, which probably belong together. Once I delete them, they always come back after restarting my pc.

Can't manage to delete either.

Always finds a whole list of results. Including Torjans, Malware and one ZeroAcces.

I'm using the Pro 64 bit version.

1) On my music/media folders I can't arrange the files the way I want it; they just snap in place. Is there a custom setting in there?

3) Is there a way to bring the Show Desktop to the left side?

4) What's a good program to create shortcuts? I used WinKey before this, but it's not supported in Windows 7.

Hello Chaoz,

Welcome to Seven Forums.

1) They have removed the no sort choice, so you can no longer arrange them in any order you like. There are several choices though.

2) Haven't heard of this yet. Maybe someone else has a thought.

3) No

4) You can easily create a new shortcut by rt. click choose new and shortcut. Browse to the location of the target, Next, Give it a name, Finish. To give it a different icon, right click the new shortcut/properties/Change icon. Browse to the icon you wish to use select it, press OK.

5) Haven't used Foobar, but sounds like it is not picking up the icons properly. Do you have the latest version? You could try running in Compatibility mode, but I don't know that it will help. Info here if needed: Compatibility Mode

Hope this helps,

Hi, I have an older laptop that I use for school. Recently, I had a nasty virus, so I just decided to wipe the computer clean and start over, which I did successfully. Now I need to download the drivers but I am getting frustrated. I thought I had a drivers disk, but I don't. I went on the Lenovo website thinking I could get them all from there, but I am so confused. I have no idea which drivers I need. I think because its an older laptop, they don't have updated support for the model I have.

I tried looking in the device manager to see which ones are missing but I can't make any sense of it. When I do a Google search, I see all sorts of sites where I can download free drivers, but I have no idea which sites to trust to download. For all I know, those are all Malware. Can someone please help me?

I know for sure I need the driver for my wireless card but I am missing many others too. According to the Device Manager, these all have yellow questions marks (missing drivers):
-Audio device on High Definition Audio Bus
-Base System Device
-Base System Device
-Base System Device
-Fingerprint Sensor
-Foxconn Bluetooth 2.0 plus EDR
-Modem Device on High Definition Audio Bus
-Network Controller
-SM Bus Controller
-Video Controller
-Video Controller (VGA Compatible)

Lenovo 3000 V100
Windows XP Professional

Let me know what other info you need. Thank you.

A:Need a bunch of drivers but don't know where to get them

Hmmm, I see a host of drivers for this notebook on the Lenovo Support Site.

So my computer is having several problems at the moment but first off I re-formatted my computer a while ago because everything was super broken. Anyway, I used the Windows Update Troubleshooter to fix stuff because updates kept failing and then spending
hours undoing changes also I keep being asked to activate windows but when I click activate it says try again later and it's been doing that for more than a month. And in the Trouble shooter is says that error 0x80070490 is fixed but it isn't really and
I don't know what to do I just want my computer to fix. Also when I play games for a while my computer blue-screens with the error DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION. Also my knowledge of computers is fairly basic.
Oh also here's the computer stuff or whatever:
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-4210U CPU @ 1.70GHz 2.40 GHz

Installed memory (RAM): 4.00 GB (3.89 GB usable)

System type: 64-but Operating System, x64-based processor

I think my computer is an Acer Aspire. Also I don't know if any of this is relevant but just in case I guess.

Edit: I just tried installing the Windows updates and 174 updates out of 174 failed.

Hello, I'm new to this forum I really need help because my computer has become extremely slow and is freezing up more than usual.

Clocksync keeps popping up, Inet Delivery, Memory Watch, Startuim, Lycos Sidesearch, Ist.svc, Purity Scan, Statblaster, Help express and my winservn keeps saying it has problems. Also, when I start up my computer, Powerscan appears and tells me it can clean out porn when I don't even look at it! Any help is greatly appreciated.

Do this in order:

1) Open Internet Explorer -> Tools -> Internet Options -> delete cookies, delete files (select off-line content), clear history. Then click ok and exit Internet Explorer.
2) Read http://tomcoyote.org/SPYBOT/index1.html then download and run SpyBot. Make sure to get the updates for SpyBot before you have it scan your computer. After you scan and remove anything SpyBot finds, make sure to click the Immunize button followed by OK and then click the Immunize button in the right pane.
3) Run two of the following free Anti-Virus programs here:

The computer is a P4 2.2 Ghz Dell Dimension 2400 with onBoard Video
Our broadband connection most certainly has viruses as a new one pops up every 5 minutes. Some are in c:\Win32 for example, but I don't know about where all of them are at.
We've been using Windows Defender to get rid of them but we're finding that they continue to pop up. Can you help me get rid of them?
I did read the FAQ and then looked at my add/remove programs for common malware.
Thank you

then there a red x next to applying default settings.
I also can't run any programs. example: malwarebytes.
I downloaded exe fix but I get the same popup message.

The popup tells me the parameter is incorrect.

When I was trying to take care of the first problem I went into the computer/properties/secutity area. I don't know how I did it but I removed Special permissions and don't know how to return it. I have all other boxes ticked. I think my problems are in this area somewhere.

When I'm in safe mode I can access the programs.
What can I do?

So.. where to start. I have a Son VGN-FZ140E, specs are listed below. Anyway, I've had countless problems with this PC, though none that have really serious enough for me to care until now. I finally got pissed enough today to start seeking advice.
#1. It usually either takes forever to shut down/restart or doesn't all. It will say shutting down but I can leave it on all night and nothing will happen. It also takes something like 5 minutes to start up and become functional. I generally end up just holding down the power button.
#2. I don't know if this is related to vista or what but I seem to have a lot of problems with my usb hubs. Devices plugged into the hubs randomly stop responding until I unplug the hub, restart the computer, plug the hub back in, and then plug the device back in. Today it still showed my external hard drive as being connected (I could browse the files) but I had unplugged it earlier. Again, I couldn't use it until I restarted the computer and then plugged the drive back in.
#3. If I unplug my bluetooth usb adapter my computer generally gives me a bluescreen that says something about dumping the memory.
4. MS Word 2007 has problems whenever I try to close a document. Instead of just closing it stops working and then restarts so I end up with it being back open after I tried to close it.

Anyway, the biggest thing is the whole not shutting down and not restarting thing. Granted it is a lot faster now that I have removed Sony's Bloatware, but... ... Read more

A:A whole bunch of questions.

First...What happens if you unplug ALL USB devices and restart? You may have a defective USB Device in your chain. Unplug everything, reboot. If it runs well, start plugging in the devices one by one until you find the one that kills your system. You may have something that is not vista compliant in the mix

Second...If you try a clean install of vista, DO NOT ENTER THE KEY until you are sure the system runs well. If you have never used this disk before, you have 30 days to try before you register. You will likely need to download and install all of the Sony drivers for the clean install.

Third...If you are experiencing driver problems now...DEFINATELY go with 32bit. 64bit will make your current problems seem like childs play.

Lastly, scan for viruses and spyware.

Good Luck

If norton is scanning on its own the computer will reset and remain in constant reboot until I use the windows cd and go into repair mode and run the FIXBOOT and FIXMBR commands in the Windows recovery console, (I think my norton is hacked or something) and if i try to restart without the cd it says boot error or something and won't start....

Whenever I search with Google in Firefox, when I click on my results, it redirects me to a random page (Elle.com, woman's day, etc.)

iexplore.exe is constantly running in the background, and I use Firefox as my main browser.

Occasionally (every 10-15 minutes) I will hear a click, as if I clicked on a link, thru my headset, and my current brower window will become a background window.

Windows Movie Maker is not working for crap, whenever I open it, it says it needs to close.

Ok, I had to restart my computer after it finished a spyware scan. It restarted just fine, but I noticed a lot of things wrong once I logged on.

1)can't minimize programs to the taskbar. They won't show up if I try to minimize them, but I can access them by using alt+tab.

2)can't hide inactive windows, no circle with the arrows to click to minimize. I've tried right clicking on the taskbar and going to properties, but when i click hide inactive icons, and click apply nothing happens. Also when I click the customize button, the customize notification menu is empty.

3)I have no sound. I went to the control panel and checked on the sound and audio devices. I went through all of the tabs and they all said there was no device, but when i checked the hardware properties it said everything was working properly.

4)when I access the task manager and click on the processes tab, the user name column is empty. Usually there is either administrator or system

Other than these problems, everything else works fine. I recently installed something before my computer restarted and I uninstalled it and restarted it again and the same problem was there. if anybody knows what to do I would be extremely greatful.
