Questions about PSU behavior.

Q: Questions about PSU behavior.

Recently, while playing World of Tanks, I have had random crash to desktop issues. To my knowledge they only happen during match play ( my old computer roommate is using) when cpu and gpu load is probably heavy. Before moving on I put a 3.1 amd 64 x2 cpu init has full 8g memory and a 1g GeForce 210. I know the 250w PSU needs to be updated but was going to let the others do that. Would this lack of power cause a game to simply crash to desktop while everything else remained stable? My feeling is it is probably a driver (read NVidia has notorious conflicts with WoT) or setting or other software conflict. Have gone through the uninstall/reinstall, rolled back drivers a full three versions, disabled any hd audio conflicts route. I think if something wasn't getting the power CPU or GPU I would get blue screen of death or shutdown. Any help.

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.

in this video Laura E. Hunter from Microsoft describes behavior analytics: https://youtu.be/hNZdboDvnuU?t=1251
She says that ATA will analyze the behavior in a domain for 21 days and declare this as normal behavior. After the 21 days ATA will report unusual user behavior based on the 21 days analysis.
I have two questions about this:
1. Can we see the progress of the analysis somewhere? I searched through the ATA-center but there is nothing. Is it possible to see it in some kind of logfile or the Mongo-DB?
2. We have started ATA with one DC. What happens if we add our other DCs later? Will the analysis recognize behavior from those, also when the 21 days are already over?
I did not find anything about this 21 days analys period in the documentation. I'm more than happy with a hint if I have overseen something there.
Thanks in advance

1. Ran out of this space in my Q:Lenvovo - backup assigned partition.  14GB.  (My C: drive has 80GB free!) How can I fix this?  Is there a way to expand the partition without deleting it first?  Does Lenvovo or Microsoft or SSD manufacturer have a tool to do this where you just enter the amount you want to expand a partition to and it will adjust the other partition accordingly?  If not; I cannot delete the Q:Lenovo drive using file explorer or disk cleanup utility.  How do I remove at the original backup?  When I go to disk cleanup it shows blank the files; so it is a hidden file or subdirectory.  I even try signing on as System Administratin but forgot the password I created, it been so long ago and never use it.  LOL!   If I cannot do any of this:  There is an option to do a Windows 10 refresh but can you redirect it to a new SSD from the existing SSD? 2. Looking to get a new SSD but in NVMe configuration. a. Does my L450 support NVMe boot up? What type of NVMe does my Thinkpad support?  I thinking of getting the Samsung 860 Evo.b.

I have a
HP Pavilion dv7t-1000 CTO Entertainment Notebook PC
64bit with Windows Vista Home premium
Recently I had a friend take it and wipe it to start fresh.
when I got it back it is still pointing to a bizarre path..?? (which is one of the reasons I wanted to start fresh. It points to:

%SystemRoot%\system32;%SystemRoot%;%SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem;C:\Program Files (x86)\CyberLink\Power2Go;%SYSTEMROOT%\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\


why would this be the case? When I got it back I see that some things like my extra monitor was already installed.. (Before I even hooked it up??) and some folders I had renamed example folder.OLD was still here. (and many other things that lead me to believe it did not get formatted correctly. (and could still have virus?)
He used my factory disks. (which I do have)
can anyone advise me on what is going on?
thanks so much!!

A:Environment Variables questions and format questions

I've had a bunch of HP machines. But I never used the restore. I'm not sure if it formats or just installs over what's there. It may leave files and folders that are in subfolders of programs that come bundled with the machine assuming it's data or something. The path looks fine to me. That %SystemRoot% stuff is just a way to use environment variables in case the system is not installed on C:\Windows.

If you really just want the OS and not the bundled software see the threads about ISO download for Vista. You can evaluate for 90 days perfectly legally. There are also tutorials how to extend the evaluation by 30 days.

Brand new user.

a. The new PC came with McAfee anti virus.
Should I use it ?

Is it as good as AVG, e.g., which I used on my old W7 PC ? Use them both ?

b. And, how do I turn on the "Defender" anti virus which I understand is part of
the W10 package ?

Would it interfere with McAfee or AVG ? How good is it ?

c. How do I turn on the Firewall; I'm assuming there is one like in W7 ?

Much thanks,

A:New W10 User Questions (Basic Questions, Please)

McAfee, AVG and Defender are all anti-virus programs and you should only run one. In fact Defender will get turned off when another one is installed.

Right click the Start button and select Control Panel.

Then select Security and Maintenance and under Security it will show your the status of the Firewall, Virus and Spyware and which program is running what.

Control panel also has links to Defender and Firewall.

That McAfee is a trial version and at some point you will have to buy it.

Hello Experts,

Question 1:

To initialize the 4 elements of integer array named numbers to the value of 0, is THIS

int number [4] = { 0 };

correct, and the exact same thing as saying this:

int number [4] = { 0, 0, 0, 0 }; // ?

Question 2:

double x [ 6 ], y [ 14 ];

What C++ statement could I write that would

copy array named x into the first part of array named y. // ?

Hey guys, you might of seen a post or two about me not able to get our domain to use GPO's, but its all fixed now. YAY !
(It was the DNS, incase anyone was interested)

but now i got a few questions, i'll start with:

1. Is there anyway to configure a client by just having them log onto the domain? e.g. Disable Security Center, Windows Messanger, Add a Registry hack. etc.

2. Is there anyway to view a list of all websites visited on the network with information, eg. Who was looking at it(which user), at what time. etc

3. Is there a way to record a list of all objects printed from our print server with information? e.g. User that printed it, time it was printed, how many pages, how many copys. etc.

4. Is there a way to delete start menu files/folders with a logon script?

5. I'm going to put "Deep Freeze" on the computers that are accessed and used by the public, but i've never used it, nor have any experience with it.
Does it cause any problems with normal operation of the computer? if anyone could give me some feedback on this, i'd love to hear it.

Also, is it possible to get more then just 6 Virtual Drives on a computer?

i mean, isn't there 23 possible drives?

I have a Packard Bell P133, model D135. Eight megs of
RAM are on the motherboard. According to a search of
this model on a 'Memory' website, this model has FPM non-
parity memory. The machine had two 4-MB modules installed
when it was new in 1996, for a total of 16 MB at time of purchase.
Since then, I have added two 8MB modules to bring it up to
32MB. Two weeks ago, I replaced the two 4MB modules with
two 32MB FPM modules, which was supposed to bring it up to a total of 88MB. When I boot up, it only reads slightly over 81MB as passed....of course, on the System Properties 'General' tab, 80MB is listed. Can anyone tell me what might have happened to the other 8MB?

Another question: Would parity memory be compatible with
non-parity memory? I know from research, that most servers use parity memory...parity being described as a feature of
a module for error-checking. Would parity memory work OK with non-parity, but not the other way around? The reason I ask is, I have an opportunity to buy some used 72-pin, FMP parity modules at a good price, and I just wanted to know if the two (parity and non-parity) would mesh. I wanted to bring it up to the max for this model....136MB, providing the 8MB on-board memory is read. That was my own theory about the missing 8MB....that the on-board memory, for some reason isn't being read. Any thoughts on this?

I'm brand new to the forum and looking for help...

Within the past month I bought a new HP dv9000 laptop with Vista Home Premium pre-installed. After playing with the bundled accessories and investigating the new O/S features I installed my favorite software. Somewhere along the line some of the multimedia features got clobbered. The first clue was that MPEG files would not play in the Media Player or Media Center. I somehow managed to get that resolved only to find that the "QuickPlay" did not work (HD-DVD player). While trying to download and reinstall software for that, I discover that Internet Explorer is behaving oddly.

Even on run-of-the-mill web pages, some/many graphics dont appear at all, or are represented by the all-to-familiar square and red 'X' icon. Right clicking the "red x" and looking at the properties tells me it is sometimes a GIF image, somtimes a PNG image. I'm guessing that the image is supposed to be part of a web page control of some sort, because many menus across the tops of pages have the "red x" icons or just text, but don't do anything when clicked.

More concerning is that buttons don't appear when they should. For example, trying to download Java 6 and or Flash player, the download web pages have some of the "red x" icons and such, but no buttons to perform the actual downloads. Its like Internet Explorer has lost its ability to display and/or run controls or something.

Just upgraded to windows 7 from Vista. Since then, everytime I open itunes, windows media player or log on to the internet, a broadcast which sounds like a radio takes over my sound system (itunes will continue to play in the background). Stranger than that is when I log off the internet the radio continues to broadcast. When I reboot the broadcast temporarily goes away but will re-appear minutes later. I scanned my system with windows essentials and no virus or malware was found. I contacted my internet provider (Time Warner and Dell computers and neither could resolve the issue. Thanks in advance for your responses.

My system is not a gaming system at all, but I ran games like Call of Duty 4, 5, MW2, BioShock, Fallout 3, Gears of War and Oblivion with good looking settings and good performance, problem is, since a error I received in Assassin's Creed II, I can't play any game at all, I've already tried downgrading the driver, formatting the PC, but none of that seemed to work.

I get no error message, the games run smoothly for 10 minutes or so, and then some weird stretched textures appear, it keeps up a little farther and then everything freezes and I have to reset the PC. In some of these freezes some green and pink dots appear all over the screen, pardon me if I'm posting in the wrong forum but I think it's a graphic card issue.

By the way, I have

GeForce 8400GS, 2GB of RAM, AMD Athlon X2, 500W power supply

and I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate Build 7600 x86

A:Odd behavior.

Indeed you certainly don't have a gaming rig. I think it is simply a matter of not having the proper hardware to run those games. After ten minutes or so, your computer starts to run hot, and your parts are truly pushed beyond their limits, resulting in the crash. But by all means wait for a second opinion.

In addition to my previous post, I have a home PC which is working... marginally.

I'm running a Dell 8400 (something) with a 3.2GHz Processor, 1Gb RAM, and a nice sized HD. (win XP home edition) The graphics card is a AGP nVidia 6800, with digital out. The monitor is a 15" VGA LCD.

The problem is that a while back I started having difficulty booting the PC. It would turn on, make all the HD noises, spin the CDROMs, chunk the Floppy, but wouldn't display anything on the monitor. After much swearing, cussing, and waiting, the PC would boot fine, but wouldn't recognize the graphics card. It would boot in 640x480 resolution and in 16-bit color.

I fixed this by downloading the latest drivers and installing them. This seemed to work, for a while. But the problem kept happening. So my solution was to never turn the PC off, but set it into stand-by mode. I would also get warnings from the nVidia graphics drivers that the power was low and that the card would reduce it's graphics output. Then, it suddenly stopped turning back on, so I bought a $20 GeForce 4x00 cheapo-card and at least the video works.

And now my system battery is low.

In addition, I've bought a lynksys G and B wireless network card and sometimes that card isn't recognized by the PC (when coming back from stand-by), so I have to reboot to get the PC to recognize it.

I plan on getting a new System Battery, but I want to find the root cause of all these probl... Read more

I updated Avast! and it wanted to reboot; but I noticed I had mou.exe running, and neither recognized that nor could I identify it. So before I rebooted I (a) killed mou.exe (b) deleted mou.exe and (c) deleted another non-recognized file in that directory that also had attributes HS (like mou did.) Upon reboot, everything is normal except that start\run\any.exe doesn't run... the "open with" dialog box appears. Same if I 'open' or 'explore' my hard drive - any executable that I double click or 'open' doesn't run... the "open with" dialog appears.

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.exe\shell\open\command now has value
"c:\Documents and Settings\Dane\Local Settings\Application Data\mou.exe" -a "%1" %*

This computer has a PX865PE/P motherboard and I'm having some problems with the AGP port on the motherboard. Assume that I'm using analog for all of this besides where I said I'm not. The computer originally had a Gigabyte Radeon 9200. When I boot without changing anything, I wouldn't get a signal on the monitor and I heard no beeping. If it switched over to digital, I'd get the same results. The card is definitely getting power - the fan is spinning. When I put another graphics card in, it didn't work at first, with one mid-length beep at boot, but after taking it out and putting it back in it worked. Everything loaded up fine, but at the Windows logon screen it just did the same thing as the other card. I rebooted and it wouldn't work, with the mid-length beep again. Then I took the card out and put it back in and I got some fuzzy colors on the screen. I don't remember exactly, but they were changing color and I think they were going horizontal across the monitor (looking similar to 2D mountains). My monitor was also switching from analog to digital, like it usually does, trying to find a signal, even though I could see a picture on analog. I'm not sure whether there was a beep or not, but I don't think so. I restarted a few times, and the same lines appeared. I took the card out and put it back in and I got a mid-length beep again. I took it out and put the Radeon back in and got the same results as before.

Also try these options:

2. If this does not work, try IE/TOOLS/Internet Options/ADVANCED/ . Here scroll down to the end and you will find "Empty Temporary Internet Files...". UNCHECK this. If you still seem to have problems, repost.

For boot problems you could try Startup Repair. I'd suggest running it 3 times rebooting in between each scan even if the scans are coming back with no issues found. You could also look through the troubleshooting guide prepared by one of our Forum experts.

Startup Repair

Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Boot

As to the computer freezing, it would help to know what you were doing at the time (watching a video, downloading a file, surfing the net, etc.) You could try running a system file checker scan from an elevated command prompt (option two) to rule out damaged or corrupt system files. If problems are found run the scan 3 times rebooting in between each scan. You could also look through the general troubleshooting guidelines prepared by the same expert Forum member.

I was recently employed at a school district's IT department, and one teacher sent a help request on a computer that "crashed with the error "OUT_OF_MEMORY"."
I thought this was strange. Especially since the PC in question was an Alienware! (the district was so rich they had to donate money or they would reach the limit on their 3 accounts!)
So I turned it on, and opened Task Manager. 
300 instances of Explorer.exe and growing fast!
I used taskkill to kill all of them and restarted the first Explorer (that way the desktop and stuff work) and everything works OK. No more multiple Explorer processes!
I wrote a script to end them all and restart it and made it run after ~5 seconds once everything was loaded.
It worked, but it infects routers. It infects endpoints afterward, using HTTP packets and redirecting to the router, where the code is injected into the cache and set up.
Has anyone encountered this before?

No, but that sounds incredibly strange. Must be a prank pulled by a student.

A:Help with odd laptop behavior please.

So, today i went to star my laptop and everything seemed fine till i tried to open firefox.
At that point the laptop locked up, no ctrl/alt/delete, no power button, no shutting the laptop
I had it plugged in without a battery so i installed the battery, pulled the power then pulled the battery and waited 30 seconds before restarting with the battery and then plugging it in.
That got me working again and i am running my active antivirus, mcafee. I also have several others programs i like to keep just in case i need them, i have found no antivirus gets them all.
Additional antivirus scans i plan to run after mcafee, threatfire, malware antibytes i will make sure they are all current first but it seems my laptop is sicker than i thought.

Apoglies about the title...lol

I'm recently getting very strange behavior with my computer, in which I'm having no solution coming up to solve it. (Expect for going for the lovely format C

What basicly happens, at any random moment, of any random day, of any random week. My computer disconnects from the wireless internet. Then, the mouse freezes completly.

Now, thinking to see what is happening, I press Ctrl + Alt + Del to see whats running, but i get a access violation which doesn't allow me to access Task Manager. So then i go to select my anti-virus using the keyboard (It still works when the mouse is disabled) to select it from all programs. But when the all programs dialog comes up, every item which was in it before, has disappeared. So i then go to select the long way by my computer -> Documents and Settings -> All users -> Desktop -> AVG Anti Virus. But as soon as i tell that to run a scan, that just hangs there.

Now, when i restart my computer, its all back to normal. So this is the part where i run all my anti virus, anti spyware, and rootkit detectors to see if anythings picked up.

AVG 7.5 Didn't pick anything up
AVG Anti Spyware didn't pick anything up
AVG Rootkit didn't pick anything up
Ad-aware S.E Didn't pick anything up
Zonealarm Anti Virus didn't pick anything up
Zonealarm anti spy didn't pick anything up.

A couple days ago my computer was responding in a fast way as it should meaning boots up fast and opening and closing files fast. The next day I turn it on and it takes a little longer to boot and when opening, closing, or minimizing files, it fades in and out a little longer than usual. That day it was working fine all I did was updated my sound driver even after I had to restart it still was fine. Even when I was browsing thru the bios settings it was like I had to wait a few seconds to make a change or go to the next setting. Believe me it's weird and I can't seem to find the problem.

Hey guys,

I posted another thread about my friends computer and I ran into trouble with my own.

My computer is acting really strange. For a couple of weeks my computer kept freezing. In-game, during normal operations in windows and even in BIOS and other test software using a USB-stick (outside of Windows)

Now for at least 2 weeks straight the computer funtioned like a dream with no freezes and everything working real smooth. Just now like 10 minutes ago it froze in-game and didn't respond. After a hard shutdown, I waited 5 min and gave it another shot. The computer booted up and started running post but froze again. Another hard shutdown and 5min later still the same result.

When my computer functioned normally I ran, Memtest with no errors at all. I ran HDD test with 2 different types of software and I tried 2 different graphics card. My temps on the computer is really good so I doubt it could be that.

This computer hasn't been a good friend. It has cost me alot of failures over these 3 years from changing MOBOs, 2 Graphics cards and 2 memory sticks.

My first thought was that it could be the MOBO but I'm starting to think that it could be the PSU. Because if it delivered too much or too low power it could damage the hardware right?

Could you please give me your input on this

Best regards!

I can't send e-mail or receive from OE unless I log out and log in again, that or completely do a restart. It has slowed to a dismal crawl doing some tasks and frighteningly fast doing others. I am rebuilding a newer computer but want to keep using this hard drive. I have been backing up all my files on "Carbonate" site but I don't want to go through the lengthy task of reloading all my programs, update and everything else that goes with a format and reload. I may try a XP repair but won't do that till I am ready to use the HD in the other PC and I have a back up PC in case I have to get on line for help.

A:Bad computer behavior

Read other 14 answers

Recently, the windows began behaving unusual in that I am unable to select another window from the task bar. I have to minimize all the other windows in order to access the one I want. This includes browsers, office apps...anything.
I can click the task bar for the window I want, it appears, but when I attempt to click on it, it hides behind the current window.

This behavior also includes the system tray. I can click the arrow to show hidden icons, that window appears but when I try to select it, it clears and I'm back to square one.

I am running Windows 7 Pro on my desktop. I have not added any new apps and have tried restarting. Also, I have accessed the task manager and killed any processes I knew (avoiding system processes) and had no results.

Any info will be greatly appreciated.


A:Windows behavior

This problem is sometimes caused by having too many IE tabs and/or windows open (without realizing it --- thinking you've closed them all). Have you checked your iexplore.exe *32 processes in Task Manager Processes list? You may have to end those processes -- which automatically closes all of your tabs and IE windows. If that was the cause of your problem, it will then be resolved.

I have a Windows XP Media Center Edition PC, version 5.1, Service Pack 3.  My AV (Verizon's Internet Security Suite) runs clean except for periodic notifications that some programs are out of date, which I update when notified.
The PC performance seems choppy to me lately.  I don't know how else to desrcribe it in a word.  By choppy, I mean that the mouse sometimes jumps all the way across the screen, or frequently hangs when dragging across the screen.  Frequently, when in a program, click or drag functions with the mouse result in unexepected results.  In Excel, for instance, dragging a down a column to select a range of cells will move all of the cells, or begin editing a formula within one of the cells.  Clicking a toolbar item in FireFox will instead drag the item along the toolbar.  These kind of things.
I worry these may be indications of infection because, for computers at work (not this PC I am writing about, but my PC at work), we often give control of our screens to our helpdesk, and the mouse action becomes choppy when someone has remote control of the computer.
So I wonder if there is some program running, unknown to me, that is providing remote access to it or sending screen captures or keyboard captures in the background.
Is there a way I can tell whether what I'm seeing is just poor performance of an old PC on a now unsupported OS, or if there is something malicious going on?

A:Odd, Choppy Behavior

Hi, tmcburney. From what I'm reading from your forum post it seems like its mostly system lag and you may have to clean some space or upgrade your windows version from XP to the latest OS Windows 7 or 8. As of that choice you will have to buy a new computer. I use CCleaner to clear space on my laptop and it may work for you. However, since I am at a young age(12, nearly 13 if you're curious) I mostly recommend what I've used from my experience of clearing such things like Disk Space, Lag, or Malware. I don't use Anti-Virus though I know I should, but I use Anti-Malware if you don't have any as well as an Anti-Virus.
Just some extra information about your computer, I'm just making sure that you don't have any toolbars or suspicious programs on your desktop.
(I have little experience with Windows XP, but  hopefully CCleaner can run on it =) )

While investigating all of the various threats out there, I feel I might have inadvertantly gotten something.
My computer seems fine all day, but in the AM (or if I remotely connect to it after a period of inactivity), I get insufficient system resource errors (with nothing running) and simple, tiny programs and utilities wont run. Outlook cant find the .pst file.

I have to do a hard reboot, which solves this, but I would like to know why it is happening.

This is a two-part query.
1) I've manually created a photo album and put hotspots over each picture to open in custom size new window. I tried to do this without the hotspots but when using "Onclick" the cursor does not change to a hand/pointing finger to alert the user to click. Is there any way to make the hand appear without having to use the hotspots?

2) When the new custom size window opens on the top left of the screen the other window automatically pops back up to the top of the page instead of staying at the point of the picture that was clicked. I would like to know what I need to do to prevent this behavior. As of now, the user would have to scroll back down the page to continue viewing more pictures.

Here's a link to check out the behavior in case it might help you - go to the bottom of the page and click on a pic:

I recently had trojans on my computer and thought I had deleted all of them. However, when in Microsoft Office software, if I do a "save" "save as" "open", etc. the window appears in a full-screen format as opposed to a small format as per usual. Also, my desktop icons have a "shadow" to the text that I often remove. I was unable for a while to run in safe mode but have recently managed to log on as such and have ran my antiviruses from there. I had the Virtumonde as well as a SirCam problem. I am new to this forum and think I am supposed to put my highjack log here. I hope I am correct. Also, in my Task Manager, one of my processes is named "system" and I cannot end it.

Hello for almost a week now I've been experiencing some frustrating and puzzling connection issues for my internet. I can browse the web and go most places but it seems like any time I attempt to start a download for an application, the webpage just sits there and loads forever. There's not even an error screen usually; it just sits there indefinitely. I've noticed it also happens when I try and access some login pages on websites. I first noticed it on Steam, but it's occurring on other places too. I can't tell if this is malware or a virus or if some setting on my computer got changed without me knowing; I can say I didn't change anything between when it was working fine and the next day when it started. Any help is appreciated.

Basically I've been having problems with my computer crashing badly ever since flash 10.3 I think it was, maybe 11.3 if that was about 5 months ago. While an interesting aside it's probably not relevant. Basically in that circumstance it will just slow down to being unworkable, I turn it off and back on, everything back to normal.

Anyways last night while watching a movie everything went like it was going to crash, explorer.exe was failing blah blah blah, eventually it fixed itself and as the movie didnt stop working. I didnt think it was a big deal. After that my mouse wouldn't work properly. Basically somehow my left mouse button no longer switches windows, my right mouse button does, which causes massive problems with games, any drop down menus or using the desktop as everything on the desktop and taskbar have the left click acting as the right click would.

Basically to switch windows now, I have to bring up that window using alt tab, and then right click into the window, and then things work normally again, left click to move around, scroll wheel things work fine. It's changing panels, windows, frames, dropdown menus.

This situation persists into games as well, any game where part of the screen is a distinct window of it's own requires a right click to get into it.

Hello Coramoor0 and welcome to TSF,

When you say "Switching Windows"... Do you mean putting focus on that particular window so you can input text, or operate buttons?

Do the other standard mouse functions work properly?

Also, are the mice you used USB or PS2?

One last question, do you have any other pointing devices or HID's installed? (human interface device... keyboard, mouse, trackpad, gamepad, etc.)

Hi there.... hoping someone can help. The problem is: my browser loads super slow.. I have checked all the info on that and nothing helps so far.. deleting cache.. only 1 add-on is active and that is Flash... so hmmmmmm? Sometimes it is SOOOO slow.. othertimes, not too bad. Sometimes the whole computer is brutally slow... The weird IE 7 behavior is this: I will have a browser window open.. or two... with a additional browser tabs open. Sometimes I have 3 or 4 total... other times maybe 10 or so... On occasion, my IE will just start to freeze and randomly, slowly, and non-stop open multiple tabs.. freezing my computer. Last night I had 1 window with 3 tabs.. and it did it.If I catch it quickly enough I can use task manager to end the iexplorer.exe process all together. If I do not... I have to cold reboot my computer as it is completely taken over by this constant process.... what the?In addition, the other day I had Kaspersky Security come up saying it was blocking:Trojan-Downloader.html.fraudload.b which was trying to open: http://keepherd.infoI went through with the block and then closed everything and did a full system scan. My virus definitions are up to date... But nothing came up as infected. As far as I can remember, I was on super clean/professional sites... News sites etc... no gaming or sketchy sites....I am wondering if the two are related (the browser behavior and the Trojan thing). I can't find the Trojan anywhere. I did a registry search for keepherd.... Read more

A:IE 7 Weird behavior

Does anyone have any ideas???

So I have an HP ExperssCard Digital/Anaglog TV Tuner for my laptop.

So the first thing I did after inserting it (and after installing the dirver of course) i went to windows media centre to setup the TV Signal. It worked fine, I have a analog cable source.

Then sometime later, it just said there was no signal coming into my device, which made no sense because the HP QuickPlay program could play the TV fine.

So now I go to resetup the TV Signal but it will ONLY look for a digital signal and it does not seem to be looking for my analog source at all.

Is there anyway to make it find this signal or why it would have just arbitraily stopped? i really can't rmember doing anything that would break this at all, and I am quite experienced with computers, just not with this program since I never had a tv tuner till now.

thanks for all your help!
