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.)

Hi, I've posted my problem in OS and Windows XP section of the site and they have requested I post here too. They said to post a HJT log and report any findings/advice from this thread back to them. This is my original post:

Hi, I recently sent my laptop away to be fixed as it wasn't turning on 90% of the time and when I got it back they said it had loads of viruses and trojans which was the problem. I use AVG which I thought would have prevented this and I don't know how they fixed it but they said it was now clean.

The laptop was used with no problems for about 6 hours altogether before I installed a new external hard drive. Well, I say new but it's actually a Seagate Desktop 500gb that i had previously imstalled but the USB connecter fell off so I had to transfer it into a new case. After installing it into the new case it appeared in My Computer and I could access all my files again but the Seagate Device Manager did not recognise it. However, I soon began getting Blue Screen Errors regularly which directed me to this page after restarting: http://wer.microsoft.com/responses/R...735f4fb6f#here

I have tried all of the steps apart from the final one and nothing has worked. I started up the laptop with nothing connected to it and just left it for a few hours and when I returned to it again I got the same message telling me a serious error had occured and to visit the above page.

We are using Word 2003 SP2, running on on WinXP version 2002 SP2.
to briefly illustrate our problem:

Say I have four Word files, called B, C, D and E. Each file is three-to-five pages long, and each file ends with a Next page section break, created by dropping down the Insert menu and selecting Break... > Next page. Remember that - each of the four files ends with a Section Break (Next Page).

I create a fifth file, called A, which is a composite of files B through E inserted as links (because I want to be able to update files B through E and then pull those changes into file A). My new and blank file A is open, and I drop down the Insert menu, select File, and navigate to the file called B. I press the Insert button at the lower-right of the Insert File window and select Insert as Link. I repeat this process for files C, D and E so that, when I finish, file A is made up of files B through E, each inserted as link.

When I review file A and scroll from top to bottom, I notice that file D's text does not begin at the top of the page following the end of file C's text, as you would expect with a Section Break (Next Page) inserted at the end of file C, but rather the Section Break (Next Page) has somehow turned into a Section Break (Continue) during the linking process to file A, and so file D's text begins on the same page and a line or two below the end of file C's text. This is bad.

I purchased a usb type c spectre late last year (the rose version with i7 and 512GB.  It generally works well but so far the power system is very disappointing.  The basic issue is I purchased this device specifically because it purports to be USB Type C compliant.  That means I should be able to charge the device with any usb type c charger provided it meets the technical specs (e.g. 45 watts and so forth).  But it doesn't.  Instead, the software settings seem to make it in effect a proprietary set up.  If so, this is objectionable and possibly contrary Australian consumer law.  The problem is that I can only charge the device with the supplied charger.  The first issue is the charger is excessively heavy and bulky.  Why does the world's slimest and lightest laptop have such a bulky charger.  It's comparable to the laptop itself.  This is just dumb!The second issue is I can't use the rest of my USB Type C set up including a large battery, and a charger in my car.  Nor can I use my phone charger.  So I have to drag the HP charger everywhere.  The third issue is that only 1 of the 3 ports actually charges other devices at the USB Type C spec.  The 2 lighting ports are not USB Type C at all - they are just 3.1 with a usb type c connector.  So they only charge the phone at 20 per cent, the phone won't transfer data, and various peripherals such as a bluetooth keyboard/mouse don't have enough juice to...

Hello all,

while evaluating a new enterprise tool for our company a question was asked to the suppliers if their software is Vista compliant. One solution only requires a thin client with IE 5.5 or higher to use and say that they will not check if their software is Vista compliant as Vista uses IE 7 and they have tested with IE7 and Windows XP and it works fine.

Is there something that could prevent their software from working in Vista? Should we require them to certify Vista compliance?

If you're at all familiar with the government, you're aware that there is a MAJOR push to make sure all files on the internet are 508 compliant (accessible to users with disabilities.) I'm hearing from some folks that PowerPoint is NOT 508 compliant, while others say it can be MADE compliant.

Hi guys...an odd question here and I am mad at my IT Manager !!

Being a network Admin in-charge, i want to enforce a few policies at help desk. One of them is, not to create any user account unless an email arrives from HR to HelpDesk, informing of the user's badge ID, the department he/she belongs to. The status of employment and all those things. The procedures are in place but sometimes it so happens that some head of the Dept. call our IT Manager over the phone, or send him an email directly whcih is then forwarded to our Help Desk incharge who is then left with little options but to create the account without due processes.

HelpDesk incharge is bound by his position to defy IT manager and he is scared to tell me (sometimes he does) that IT manager is forcing him to dilute the AD account creation policy.

I don't want to confront IT manager based upon inputs by Helpdesk guys but would rather put a mechanism in place, where I would automatically come to know, that an account has been created and I can ask helpdesk to provide proof of the email from HR arbitrarily and then confront the manager.

I know some Audit trails can be put and they would appear under Securty tab of Event manager ( or so I guess) but I need something more automated that would land in my mailbox.

Is this possible?

I work at a very small business with a newer credit card machine that is wired into a Netgear router with an Ethernet cable.

Credit card terminal runs thur no computer, it is hooked directly to the router.

I try to take care of all the IT concerns and problem when they come up.

The new PCI compliance rules that went into effect on Jan 31st 2018 are giving me real problems.

We have a static IP address which has not changed for about 4 years.
We always passed the PCI compliance scan done by a company called Trustwave.

For the pass 2 months we have failed the scans. The reason stated in the report is "Host not detected".

They (Trustwave) has told me that something in the router must be blocking the scan.

Basically they have been no help.

Does anyone know the solution to this problem?? I think that there must be thousands of small business with the same problem, as I tried to call Trustwave support but got only voice mail leave a call back number because of high call volume. I have been communicating with them only by email.

I am thinking that there must be a simple solution to this, but I have not found it yet.

If we passed the last 4 years and nothing on our end has changed then why can we not pass now.?

Makes no sense to me.

Anybody got any ideas ??? Should I call the bank that services the credit card machine ?

Here's my situation. We have 4 systems that get remotely used. How ever we have been upgrading to be PCI-DSS compliant. We now need a way for these specific users to gain remote access to their desktops. Here are my thoughts but not sure which is best. So I'm just looking for your quick thoughts on this.

1. VPN that is PCI compliant. Then remote desktop from within the VPN. Would this still be PCI compliant? We have a Netgear FV338 router that is VPN pci compliant, but 60 bucks a client.

2. Use a 3rd party app such as go to my pc. That claims to be PCI compliant. I find these to vulnerable to changes in PCI compliancy. Will these actually pass our test?

Hello, my version of Windows 7 has failed to install, both at boot and within windows XP. The in-OS install failed, generically stating that it couldn't read the files it was looking for. (It REALLY needs a details tab for IT experts. It could have been my raid drivers, which seem to be running afoul in other OS's...s) The boot install didn't even start stating that my BIOS was not fully compatible with APCI.
However it is a feature-laden Gigabyte model from this year! There are no BIOS updates in regards to ACPI.

A:ACPI Compliance Failure? REALLY?

Welcome SI5K,


Sounds like you have been reading some posts first, good start. Must give you a for having your system specs in place. I have found in several of my installs of Win7 that the Bios settings were rather confusing as to how ACPI was enabled or not. So I just made several attemps until I got the right one recognized by Win7 install. that's just one thought. What Build # of win7 are you installing? How did you burn the DVD? 4x speed? seems to work best for most members. You did not state how much memory you have, but you say you took 1 stick out & attempted an install.

No Over-clocking of CPU, right ?

We can start here & other members will jump in with their thoughts, also. Sounds like all the right hardware, just some minor bugs to configure correctly.

Hi All,
Help!
I have a customer that is trying to jump through Trustwave's
questionnaire on PCI compliance (credit cards).  This is
their explanation of one of the required tests:  they
want both "vulnerability" and "penetration testing".  Now I don't
see the difference, but they do:
       Vulnerability scanning uses automated tools to attempt
       to discover vulnerabilities in the cardholder data
       environment.  Penetration testing goes further by
       having personnel *manually* attempt to exploit
       vulnerabilities and gaps in security the same way a
       criminal would.  Without penetration testing, you may
       know where vulnerabilities may be, but you won't know
       how deep an attacker can get or what he may be able to
       steal.
"Manually"?  How is the world does one do that?  Try to log in
with telnet?  Call the local federal prison and ask to borrow
a hacker for the day?  What can I do manually that the
"automated tools" can't?
Now I an see trying to seal the hole and retesting, but
that is not what they are asking for.  They want me
to sit down and try to breaking into the thing *the same
way a criminal would*!

I have a web based application and want it to port it on Windows Vista . What are the procedures I must follow to check for its compliance on safe deployment on Vista?

A:Web Based Application Compliance Testing

Let's see. I have no clue, but if I think about it, it must be:
Does your web server software work properly in Vista?
Which flavor of Vista do you plan on using?
Do you have the hardware to support it?
Have you checked into any of the documentation?
If you have checked into the documentation, promptly ignore it, set up your own test box, and see how things shake out. If what you find out on your own correlates with the documentation, then you might start to have some confidence.

That's where I would start if it were me. Essentially, a web service comes down to the web-server software, some sort of a middle tier, and I would imagine some sort of database. Are they compatible with Vista?

Basically according to all the above, my pages look like crap and have heaps of errors.

Hi Eric,   The Cyberlink BD Advisor only look for a Cyberlink BD software player.  You might very well have a perfectly good BD HDCP certified software player and Cyberlink won't indicate that you have it.  Your non-Cyberlink BD player might need updating to play the new BD titles.  The other issue might be a loose or faulty HDMI cable, a bad video card, corrupted video driver or a monitor problem. Power off the PC and monitor. Check the cables for tightness.  Be sure that you monitor has only one video connection and that it is a HDMI cable. Now try a monitor reset by unplugging the monitor's power cord and then hold down the power button for 30 seconds.  If you still have issues then try reinstalling the video card driver or installing the latest AMD driver from the AMD web site.

The hard drive is prime suspect. Run the maker's HD Diagnostic CD scan followed by another full Disk Check. If either fail again then I'd replace the HD because you can never trust one after it has failed both tests. I would even replace it if it failed Disk Check with that many errors. You didn't say if they were all repaired. If not then it should have already been replaced.

Greetings and Welcome to The Forums!!My name is Gringo and I'll be glad to help you with your malware problems.I have put together somethings for you to keep in mind while I am helping you to make things go easier and faster for both of usPlease do not run any tools unless instructed to do so.
We ask you to run different tools in a specific order to ensure the malware is completely removed from your machine, and running any additional tools may detect false positives, interfere with our tools, or cause unforeseen damage or system instability.Please do not attach logs or use code boxes, just copy and paste the text.
Due to the high volume of logs we receive it helps to receive everything in the same format, and code boxes make the logs very difficult to read.

I have installed EMET 5.1 on Windows 2012R2 member server that I am testing for compliance.
Also, admin template file (EMET.admx) has been added to PolicyDefinitions folder in sysvol.
I can see in GPRESULT output that EMET policies have been applied and I can see in REGEDIT that EMET keys have been created.
For some reason, that I am trying to find out, when scanning with Nessus and using DISA _STIG_Server_2012_MS_v1r3.audit policy definitions, it fails every EMET-related  item.

Does anyone else have the same problem? What is the remedy?

I have applied Microsoft security baseline to Windows 10 IoT.


Can anyone please provide a workaround or a solution to revert back the system to previous/original state?
(Any way which can basically revert the system + group policy + registry settings back to the way it was before applying security baselines)

PS: Microsoft compliance toolkit itself does not have this option which is why I have mention even a workaround would help if you know any.

Note: Just reversing GPO will not help. We will need to revert GPO + registry + (potential changes introduced by baseline).

My PC has slowed down a lot this week. I have checked with MalwareBytes' Anti Malware, Ad Aware and Avira AntiVirus and all seems well.

This evening I decided to try the HiJack This programme and realise from my limited knowledge that all is not well. I also received the following message:

"For some reason your system denied write access to the Hosts file. If any highjacked domains are in this file Highjack This may not be able to fix this. "

1. First, my apologies if this is posted in the "wrong" section. I know how annoying that can be.

2. I need help, please, with the Hosts problem. It is quite new to me.

3. I would appreciate it if someone checked my Highjack This file. I know there certain procedures I need to follow before I post it.

My thanks in anticipation. In the past I have always had first-class help/advice from the experts at Bleeping Computer.

I left my husband in charge of purchasing a new computer tower while I was on holiday and he got a Dell Studio 540 (bless him). For a week now I have been trying to download itunes and it won't work - can anyone tell me why? thanks

A:please help - not too sure what section I should be in

Hi -

Did the new system come with an Internet Security Suite installed (NIS, N360, KIS, McAfee, etc..) ? If so it must be removed -- using the product manufacturer's removal tool.

Regards . . .

I'm running Windows XP with 1.68GHZ and 1.00G of RAM and my problem is with my sound when i'm running winamp. Whenever I start a progrtam like firefox my songs get all crackly. Do I have a driver problem or is it something else? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
 

A:Not sure if this is in the right section but here goes...

Depending on how many other things you have running in the background, it may just be a matter of the microprocessor not having enough computing power to seamlessly play a song in Winamp and handle Firefox starting up.

FYI, the Miscellaneous Tech forum is for non-computer related questions or problems.

I play Section 8
res 1920x1080 + Vsync+everything at MAXIMUM
The game has its own benchmark so i did it,and i received the below results...
And i will like to know,are good,medium,bad?

A:Section 8

Hi, I have never heard of the game Section 8, but I can certainly interpret benchmarks for you. Obviously, the higher frames per second, the better. However, once you go over 24 FPS, there is little need to worry about how high it can go. Movies in the cinema are filmed at 24 FPS and stored on DVDs in their original framerate. So to be "as fluid as a movie", you only need to sustain 24 FPS.

Your average is 39 : excellent
Min is 7 : could be a problem, but not if it was only for a second at the outset (some large bitmaps can take longer to load leading to a pause in the game). Anything less than 20 will start to stutter.
0.6% below 23 FPS : excellent, meaning you only have 1 in 200 frames dropping below 23 FPS. Your game should be very fluid.

Run the bench 3 times in succession, and then average the results, and you will have a good idea of what your gaming experience will be. I can already tell you that it should be very good.

DD.

A:help and support section in xp

Hi violet709,

What Service Pack do you currently have installed as the Help and Support was an issue for some people prior to Service Pack 3 as an updated version of hhctrl.ocx was released in SP3. If you are running XP with SP3 we'll look at another fix.

What browser are you currently using? Internet Explorer/ Firefox/ Chrome etc

One thing that would be of help, can you download and install Autoruns and run it. Let it generate all the information (shouldn't take long) then go File>Save and save the AutoRuns.arn file to the desktop. Zip it (right click on the .arn file and select 'send to' and choose 'Compressed zipped folder) and attach it back. Basically want to have a look and see if we can figure out what may be interfering.

Could you also give us your full system specs as well. If you are unsure what your specs are, download and run Speccy, then when it's generated the information (about 10 seconds) go File>Save as text file, and attach that as well.
