Possible False Negative?

Q: Possible False Negative?

Hi its been a while since i was on this part of the forum.

I was doing a pandascan a while ago. I wasnt expecting much on it. Preparing myself for just a few spyware maybe as it had been a while since i last scanned my computer. After a while however it picked up these 2 files as suspicious:

C:\documents and settings\ben\my documents\ati updates\dcprosetup_15.zip[dcprosetup.exe][DCleaner.exe]
C:\documents and settings\ben\my documents\DCProsetup_15\DCProSetup.exe[DCleaner.exe]

Now i thought that these were legit files? Could it be a mistake on pandas behalf or should i look into it more? What are your opinons on the matter?

P.S. Thats twice now my internets konked out while on BC.... Sound supcious? Should i go into safe mode and try a few tests?

Preferred Solution: Possible False Negative?

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.)

Whenever the PC "GROTTO_2" is started and the router becomes available,
it generates FALSE internet traffic (Up and Downloads).

As soon as I did so, all my internet windows closed at once.

I ran spybot, MS Antispyware Beta, AVG Anti virus, everything was of the latest update as of today Dec 9th. It found nothing.

I searched the internet and found the Tech support guy website, and this is my last hope.

My google.com homepage keeps being hijacked to this:

I sincerely hope someone can help.

I'm downloading a decently large file (2.50 GB) and it's in the Negative percent, the download bar (little blue bars that go across) are all the way across, I have 160 MB of 2.50 GB downloaded, and it says 4 hours and 10 mins left, and it also says -11% as the percent complete, what does this mean??

Thanks ^.^
 

A:Negative % in download??

What it means is fairly straight forward. Of the huge download, only 11% has been downloaded and 11% of 2.5GB is about 160mb. It is estimated to take 4 hours to download such a large file. If you are on dial-up, it might take that long! On DSL or cable, it should not take that long. Does that answer your question?

"The negative effect" I assume you mean the colors are backwards, white is black, green is purple, etc, etc

If this is the case there should be a strange key on your keyboard that looks like a white A and a black A. Usually you hit the function key then hit the other reverse key to change the colors around.

Otherwise... you will need to find your video card settings and mess around with the gamma section majorly.

A:Scanning & Printing from old B & W negative

It can be done but your results will depend on what type of scanner you have and what graphics programs you have.
Plan to spend some time and go through some trial & error to get the finished product just right.
After your initial scan I suggest you work with copies of the original scan so you can always try again.

I have a scanner for scanning film negatives which worked really well with Vista 32 bit but I have been unable to get it working with Windows 7 64 bit.

It is made by a company called Fujitac (who don't seem to have a website anymore) but it uses OVT Scanner drivers. Initially Win 7 didn't recognise it but after loading the drivers from the original CD it seems to be recogised. The driver version is Omnivision 5.2.5500.35 from 29 Jul 07 and I have no idea where to get a later version.

The scanner came with Photo Impression 6 software. When I go "Acquire from Scanner" it brings up the capture window but it remains blank and never shows an image of the negative that I wish to scan.

Any ideas would be gratefully received - I've wasted too much time on this already

I know by formatting the cell you can select negative numbers to appear in red. I was wondering if there was a way to do that with zeros?
 

A:Excel and negative numbers

Hi there,

Yes, there is, but you'll need to do a custom format as there are no default formats for showing anything equal to zero in red. Now in order to do this, you'll need to understand a little of custom formatting. There are four items you can specify, and they are in specific order: Greater than zero, less than zero, equal to zero, and textual values. These items, are separated by a semi-colon ( ; ). So something like this...
Code:
0.00;-0.00[Red];0.0[Blue];[Green]
This should explain them a little more...

I just bought Otek FS-502 hoping to scan heaps of old 35mm negative, but I am rather disappointed in the quality of the images I am getting, they are wishy/washy (not sharp or clear). After I have transferred it onto my PC the dimensions are 2544 x 1696 but the size of the file is 500-600KB whereas my normal digital photos are 2-3MB, which I assume is the problem. Am I expecting too much of this Scanner or have I not set up the scanning process correctly? Or is it dependent on the SD card, I have tried a couple with same result.
Also another problem has emerged when I emailed a couple of photos (saved from my digital camera) as attachments to a friend; when I open up my sent message, at the top (above the addressee headings) there is a message "OA removed access to the following unsafe attachments in your mail IMG_795.JPG". so all I have is the hugely enlarged image in the email itself.
Hopefully you can understand my 2 problems/issues an have some easy resolution.

Many Thanks

Your unsharp scans are caused probably by you not setting a high enough scan resolution in your Otek's scanning software.

One thing I don't like about Windows 7 is that after a while, for apparently no reason, Live Window Previews in the taskbar stop working. Instead, all I get the color hovering over a window and nothing showing up unless I click on a taskbar item and drag it up. In Vista I never had a problem with these Live Previews. I can fix it by restarting explorer.exe but that's still rather annoying. Regardless of the video card, the video card driver version, 32-bit or 64-bit, Home Premium, Professional, or Ultimate, I get this issue no matter what.

I hope they fix this issue in SP1.

Can anyone help me with this? I have a whole lot of Excel spreadsheets (copied over from my old PC) in which numbers were formatted using the standard "Number" option in "Format Cells". (This gives you 4 options for negative numbers in the option box, the last two of which show negatives in parentheses - which is the way I like to have it.) This is obviously only possible if you have fixed your number formats in Regional Settings first. On my new PC, therefore, the first thing I do is fix my Regional Settings correctly, but when I open my spreadsheets, all negative numbers have unhappily been stripped of their parentheses in favour of the ubiquitous minus(-) sign. The weird thing is that I also changed the "digit grouping" option in my Regional Settings from a comma to a space, and this comes through correctly in Excel. Am I missing a trick here, or do I really have to go into all my spreadsheets and redo all the number formats using the "Custom" option? Thanks for your help.

Hi all, I am new to scanners and I have a new H/P scanner with transparent materials adapter and holding rig for negatives. I assumed that scannning a negative would produce the best end result. However I scanned the 4x6 color print and it came out much better. Which way should produce the best results? Scan the print or scan the negative?
Thanks.
Lee

I did search the forum first.
 

A:Scan a picture or negative for best quality?

From my experience the negative is much better. Make sure you're setting the DPI at the maximum of what the scanner can handle. Also get a can of compressed air and blow the the dust off the negatives before scanning them. Even a little spec shows up.

As the title says and this is my second cable already, the original completely burned the socket so I had to break it to get the new cable to fit the socket. The weird thing about it (to me at least) is that, unless you open the laptop cover, you can't even tell that anything is wrong because everything works fine, my laptop isn't overheating when gaming or anything. (Used to have a heating problem but managed to fix that with Intel Extreme tuning utility and some better drivers). Edit: The image of the socket inside the laptop is included below.
