Solved: I missed the POLL

Q: Solved: I missed the POLL

Sorry folks but I missed the voting as to wanting Windows 7 Beta to have it's own forum. Got this from pyritechips as his answer to my post asking why we didn't have such a forum:

Hi buf. I guess you missed the thread we had on that subject. You can see it here (http://forums.techguy.org/site-comments-suggestions/789220-windows-7-section.html), and since this thread is a repeat, I am going to respectfully close it.

I surely would not have inquired had I known of the forum poll. I can abide by the decisions made. (Have to )

Preferred Solution: Solved: I missed the POLL

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.)


Hello guys,

I decided to create a serie of polls to observe and analyze what is your understanding/knowledge of security models/features.

The polls will offer several options some true , some false to check what you believe is true and correct/teach you if you were wrong.

1- The polls will be multi-choice with several options, but it doesn't automatically mean that there is several good answers.

2- The polls will be anonymous , so just be honest in your answers , don't google or ask someone; you will defeat the point of the polls.
The goal is to teach you, so don't be ashamed if you were wrong , because nobody will know !

3- read carefully the question, each words are important and answer after seriously thinking of it because you can't change your answer !
Please don't post what you believe is the answer or useless comment, they will be removed from the thread.

I will continue this serie by another one more difficult about a well known security model: Anti-Exploit.

Spoiler: the answer from the previous poll : SUA :
3- An account giving limited privileges/permissions of the system to the user.
5- An account that emphasize privacy (files/soft settings) between the users of a shared computer.
All the others are false even if plausible.

feels like i havent been on here for ages

jus looking for some help with MS Word

was wondering how i can make the little squared sign(small 2) appear next to a number

e.g x = (4+5) 2 -this 2 should be small like when writing 6th the t and h become small. how can i do this manually?

and help very much appreciated

A:Solved: missed u!

In my version of Word (2000) here's the way you do it:

type your formula,
highlight the 2,
go to "Format" on the top menu,
select "font"
look for "superscript" with a box beside it. Click in the box to put a checkmark in it.
Click the "OK" below

If that doesn't work in your version, then go to your Help menu and search for "subscript". The instructions there should also work for superscripts.

I did a scan using NoAdware v4.0 (Unregistered version) and detected the following:

Worm that trys to spread itself and allows unauthorized access to your PC.

I tried to locate this with RegEdit and didn't find it (no surprise there as I'm rather a novice at this) and with RegCleaner.

Just wondering if there is any Tech that can tell me W.T. heck happened to my Wave Maxx Audio EQ, I have a 5.1 surround sound system and I always had the EQ settings ( When I needed them ) but now the EQ has completely dis-appeared.
I went to my downloads page and the Wave Maxx isn't even there, I tried the Drivers and Downloads page several time for the driver that's there, went to the Realtek site tried that one several times, and also tried the download from File Hippo and no go, all seems fine with the sound except now when I need(want ) to use EQ it is not there anymore.
My System is the XPS 8500 SE white case purchased several years ago and I always had issues with this rig sense I bought it, That's a whole other story.
I'm trying to Like Dell again but it just keeps getting harder and harder, A solution would be nice or some good suggestions to Alt audio to get rid of the onboard audio.

I have Toshiba Satellite Laptop running XP and I am trying use to the modem for a dialup connection and continually get the "Error 633: The modem (or other connected device) is already in use or etc etc". I've tried everything I can think of and reviewed all related threads on here and checked the microsoft site, but I still can't figure it out. Here is what I tried:

1) Shutdown any and all programs that may be trying to access the modem from the system tray

2) Reviewed my processes to see if anything could be interferring - didn't find anything

3) Check Device manager - working properly

4) Uninstalled it from the device manager so windows could find new hardware

5) The telephone.ini option is not applicable since it's XP I'm using

Additional Notes:

The laptop is used on a corporate network and I'm trying to use the dial up option when I'm offsite. Could there be a firewall problem?

The modem is shown as connected to COM3, but when I look at my LPT/COM ports in Device Manager all I see is a single LPT port and no COM ports - could that be the problem? If so how would I resolve it.

When I attempt to query the modem I cannot.

Is there anything else I can try? Thanks in advance. Have a good day.

A:Error 633 - tried everything, have I missed anything

Hello and Gooday everyone. hope you are not having the problem that I'm about to reveal for you, because it is anoying as freakin hell.

Recently I have been attacked worms and spywares to the neck. used Kaspersky Anti Virus to clean and it did the job, expect that the PC is not the SAME. Wait, it gets interesting:

Many programs I try to open, I get the Short cut message (windows is trying to locate the file somethin.exe) and all the program icons are replaced with one icon for unknown software. in addition to that I cant access or perform the following
msconfig (windows cannot find msconfig, make sure you tyoe the name correctly then try again)
Internet Option (the oporation has been canceled due to restrection on this computer) just for notice, I am the administrator

I have Kaspersky, Spycleaner Gold (downloaded from Download.com)
Many of the PC original components are unable to perform cause the windows can't find them even though they came with the PC

for the love of GOD and Friendly user softwares, help this PC imbecile

Can anyone out there advise if their is anything that I can download that will notify me if I have a telephone call while online.
I am too poor to consider broadband/second dedicated line, but am fed up with the few remaining friends I have left getting the engaged signal while I am on-line.

One of the computer magazines I subscribe to did mention a product called 'Buzz-me' which seemed absolutely perfect...only problem was that it only appears to work with US telephone systems as when I entered my London telephone number I got an error message: 'not a valid area code' (or something like that)

Long story short...I lost my job yesterday based on the fact that a "random" check was done on a few computers with the Barracuda Website Filtering. Since I log onto my computer at the beginning of the day and don't log out until 5 any activity will appear under my name even if I locked my screen and leave my apps running. Now keep in mind 4 people have used this computer before me, and while I was out for a month others used my computer. In the past 2 months I have seen the Symantec message Web Attack: Exploit Kit Variant Activity 3 when I turn on my computer run a scan that found nothing and wasn't notified by the tech monitors of anything so I assumed everything was ok. Until yesterday when I was told that the Barracuda Website Filtering had monitored me going to multiple adult content websites that I had never heard of or seen for 1-4 or 5 min sessions. Some of the times I was out to lunch. The head of the tech department was called in as I was stating that it could be a virus, worm anything that could have been running in the background. The tech expert said it's not true you have to actually visit those pages  she said they can't run in the background.
Was it possible I was infected and was not caught? I did not go to those sites. Your thoughts.

A:Symantec may have missed something serious ...Help?

If the IT Dept was monitoring activity and websites visited by employees, they should have a record of the user login name and date/times this was done. Did they show you that information?If your computer was shared by others, did each user have their own login account or was the same login information shared by everyone?If everyone had their own login account, its always possible someone logged in with your user account (if they had access to that info) and visited those prohibited sites. The problem then is proving that it was someone else.

It's been awhile but I came back for a really stupid question

On another forum that I live on, there is this guy that claims the following

"If it`s just files between the two XP machines you want to transfer back and forth, I am able to do that with just a reg LAN cable between the two computer`s LAN ports, as long as both machines are set to share. The cable has the same wire layout end to end when you lay the plugs side by side and compare the colors of the wires.
If it`s the internet you want for both machines plus transferring files between, then a hub or switch between the machines and the router is what you want."

I am calling him a fool... there is a VERY long history of him screwing up computer networks (I had to stay up til 3am once to fix a network he "fixed")

His tech advise has been "make all users administrators, then you can get to your files"..

I will show him this link.

Any one want to chime in?

Ok I have a Alienware M17XR2 laptop. I just installed windows 8.1 from a formatted start. Got most of the drivers functioning. I have an unknown device which I will address in another thread. Anyway my keyboard lags sometimes while I am typing fast. Never did that on my Windows 7. I'm running 64 bit as well. Any suggestions?

A:Typing Lag/Missed Letters

In my experiences laggy typing has been due to spyware or java intercepting my keystrokes for whatever reason.

Run spybot search and destroy, its free..

Boot your computer in safemode with networking, if no lag then its a program intercepting your keystrokes.

If still lag, you may have hardware problems, either keyboard or motherboard, possibly even video..

Hmmm the best way to describe it.....

My desktop running w7 is wired into my router. I have an inventel livebox.

Internet suddenly drops out on my desktop.

I check my phone... nope wireless internet still connects and browses fine.

After a few minutes a yellow triangle appears on the network symbol.

I go to my browser and try to connect to my router.... invalid web page (wtf).

I run the fixing troubleshooting thing - problem not found.

I restart my router... it then connects again.

So this is definitely a windows 7 problem, as it causes my computer to just forget to go online yet restarting the router seems to be the only fix.

It is incredibly frustrating when it happens while in the middle of an online game. I cant be the only one experiencing this, so there has to be a fix that no-one has told me about.
My power settings are telling my lan to never sleep as well as everything else for good measure.

Any help?


A:Have I missed the solution to this problem?

Ok it just happened again while i was in the middle of a game.


[img] http://i177.photobucket.com/albums/w...3/Capture1.png [/img]

So i log into my router and get this:

[img] http://i177.photobucket.com/albums/w...3/Capture2.png [/img]

When i click the yellow triangle i get this:

[img] http://i177.photobucket.com/albums/w...3/Capture3.png [/img]

My network map:

[img] http://i177.photobucket.com/albums/w...3/Capture4.png [/img]

I run the diagnostics and this is the outcome:

[img] http://i177.photobucket.com/albums/w...3/Capture5.png [/img]

Leaving the only way to work around it is to disconnect my router. Everything else hooks up to the internet fine. This W7 machine is the only problem.

Any ideas?.... anyone?

Does anyone have a clue why it just randomly shuts me off or any idea how to prevent this from happening?

Alright guys I'm sure you've realized that I have been less active on the forums than before. K. So my question is what's the deal with PCIe 2.0? Also can a PCIe 2.0 video card work in a PCIe 1.x motherboard.

I have a 64-bit, Windows 7 HP laptop. Late, late last night after running many virus and spyware programs I gave Combofix a try. I did see the warning or requesting a helper first, but I've done so much of this that I thought I could let it run then get help if I needed it. Yes, I was wrong and should have got help first.

I fell asleep waiting for it, but it seems to have completed, rebooted, and lists a log file in Notepad, mentioning at the end of the log that a quarantine file was created.

Every program icon is giving me a Marked for deletion message and not opening, so I don't know what to do. I rely on the laptop to make my living as a web developer, and work has been so slow that downtime like this really hurts.

I don't know if there is a way to reverse what Combofix did and start over, or what should be done? I didn't read about the other programs that should possibly be run first, until today. I'm accessing the internet now with my son's PC.

I can tell you that prior to Combofix I ran Shopzilla, but didn't pay to have it fix the 49 problems it found (just don't have the $40! - times are that tough!) I did run Spy Bot Search and Destroy, then Adaware, then Virusfighter with Spywarefighter. Each found a few things but didn't appear to be a large count like Shopzilla's list of 49 items.

However, the reason I started all this is because a searchdiscovered.com browser redirect was hijacking IE, Firefox, and ... Read more

i recently lost the "1394 connection" and my laptop is no longer able to connect wirelessly. maybe i deleted it by mistake, actually i dont know anything about these things and appreciate any help....

many thanks

A:1394 connection missed!!!

Nope, thats not what is the cause of your problem. 1394 is firewire and you weren't using that for wireless.

I'm not sure what you did to lose your wireless, but the first step I'd try is to run whatever wizard it is to get your connection back. I think it is in internet options control panel connection tab. If that isn't it try the network connections control panel and then make a new connection (left pane).

This could be any number of things ranging from something on your PC to something at the wireless access point itself. Post more details if the above doesn't fix your problem.

Windows 8 a 'giant sadness' says gaming boss - Telegraph


Newell, whose company is known for the Half-Life game series and runs the Steam games store, said Windows 8, the new Microsoft operating system, was "unusable".

"Windows 8 was like this giant sadness. It just hurts everybody in the PC business," Newell told The Verge. "Rather than everybody being all excited to go buy a new PC, buying new software to run on it, we?ve had a 20-plus per cent decline in PC sales."

Before founding Valve, in 1996, Newell spent 13 years working on Windows for Microsoft.

Last year, Microsoft announced that it had sold 40 million Windows 8 licenses in the first month after launch, an improvement on Windows 7, which sold 60 million licenses in its first two months. Earlier this week, Microsoft said sales of Windows 8 had reached 60 million.

Valve is working on a Steam Box games console that will bring its games into the living room but also act as a networked games device for the whole home.


The ONLY reason it runs slightly faster is cos they stripped out a load of stuff (like Media)

- which they now charge punters 'X'tra for!

A:Missed Opportunity - Windows 8

We don't really need more threads with useless bashing of Windows 8. They've been over and done with.

As for your comments at the bottom, you might want to look back through previous OSes before making such generalizations.

There are plenty of real reasons why Windows 8 is faster than 7. That's the point of improving code. Why else would Windows 7 run faster than Vista?

A:Removed viruses and Malware, but something was missed

Read other 6 answers

Hi there,
I did a random scan with Avast (as you do) and it turned up a rootkit at the end. It couldn't be removed, deleted, repaired or quarantined. I tried picking it up with malwarebytes and TDSSkiller but this returned no results. I also tried scanning with GMER but it kept freezing up. I did another full system scan with Avast and this also showed up nothing... I'm confused. As far as I know I haven't done anything about this rootkit, since nothing could be done when it was originally found, but it's not showing up in scans anymore (not even with the AV that originally picked it up). Is there any way of confirming if it's still there and if so what's the best thing for me to do next?

A:Rootkit found in one scan then missed in another, do I still have one?

I have a problem with the taskbar, I mean when a file is opened it isn't on the taskbar, and if it's minimized when I wanna back to the file (maximize it) I have to press alt+tab. so on the taskbar there's no open files.
I check taskbar properties, but I haven' found anything in relation with this matter.

Could you please help me? what I have to check?
Thanks in advanced
