NAV2005 LU thinks my wxp is a w98??!

Q: NAV2005 LU thinks my wxp is a w98??!

I installed NAV2005 on my wxp-he. When I run LiveUpdate, it doesn't complete the installation of the NortonAntivirus update, instead saying:

*****
Windows 98 4.10.2222

NAVNT 11.0.1

Your Operating System is Windows 98/Me. This update is not desiged for Windows 98/Me.
*****

Yesterday I was on the computer about 12 hours, off and on with tech support.

I had already uninstalled NAV, installed sp2, reinstalled NAV2005, same problem. Norton said remove and reinstall NAV. I told them I already had. Do it again. Did. Same result. Second call, they said call hp and have them fix bad sectors and try again. Did (they had me run scandisk, then run sfc /purgenow, then run sfc /scannow), same result. Third call to Norton, uninstalled NAV LU LiveReg through add/remove, then took out of the registry and removed all symantec folders on the drive (except for three that wouldn't leave), then reinstalled. She guaranteed me this time no problem. Wouldn't stay on the line for the reinstall. Hung up, reinstalled, got same problem.

Yes, I have a W98SE 4.10.2222, but the NAV2005 CD doesn't know it. And NAV2005 hasn't been installed on it (though NAV2004 was). Yes, it has been networked through a router to the wxp, but the network card hasn't worked in ages (the w98 can't get to the Internet and the w98 and wxp can't see each other, and for the final 2 installations of NAV2005 above, the w98 was unplugged from the router).

My wxp has always been xp, not upgraded from 98. Why does LiveUpdate think my computer is w98 rather than wxp?

RELEVANCY SCORE 200
Preferred Solution: NAV2005 LU thinks my wxp is a w98??!

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.)

Norton is and always has been a law unto itself,not even its own people know how it works,there is no question it is seeing that Windows 98 somehow,and in my opinion until you get rid of that your not going to get what you want, you may get other replies telling you different hopefully ....good luck

I have a friend who has SystemWorks2004 AND Norton Anti-Virus2005 installed on her laptop. When you click on the Symantec systray icon, the NAV2005 desktop icon, or NAV2005 under the start menu, the SystemWorks2004 window comes up (just like when you click on the SystemWorks2004 desktop icon or select SystemWorks2004 under the start menu). Is it skipping over the NAV2005 program or does that integrate into the SystemWorks program as the anti-virus part now?

I guess my real question was, as long as she keeps her subscription to SystemWorks2004 and def files up to date, is there a reason to purchase a separate NAV2005 program?

Thanks - cybergrrl
 

A:SystemWorks2004 and NAV2005

The System Works has an Anti-virus incorporated into it already so, if it was renewed, there would be no need to install another Anti-virus program. She should uninstall one or the other. Personally, I would keep the System Works as it has more features.

I was updating drivers and firmware on our SCSI/RAID cards yesterday, and a weird thing happened. After I was done, I started making sure my data was still intact. I double-clicked on one of my drives, and it started the 'autoplay' routine. Just as if it were a CD drive. All the data is there (thank goodness), and I can get to it by exploring, but whenever I double-click I get a message telling me that 'maxviewf.exe' in missing.

I recognize the EXE. It's on several CD's I get. It is the name of a viewing program. I've trying rebooting, but it still is there.....

Weird...

Check the root directory of the hard drive for a file called "autorun". If you find one delete it and you should be OK.

I used a VPN in China because several things are blocked without it. Now I'm back home in London and my PC still thinks it needs VPN because it won't open up any page what so ever without it!

Does anyone know what's going on?

PS I use Windows 7
 

A:PC still thinks it needs VPN?

Did you uninstall the VPN software? You may also want to check you Internet Options in the Control Panel and look under the Connections tab. There's a button there for LAN settings, disable any of the proxy settings there, uncheck everything. Also check that you are not using DNS settings that are no longer valid.

Et al,

I replaced my HDD with a SDD about a year ago, so far so good. But, recently I cannot upgrade Win 10 to the latest version because it (WIN) thinks my SDD is a USB drive. The current drive was cloned from a HDD and when I went back to it, WIN would not allow me to upgrade WIN versions. I assume my issue may be chip related or driver. While I am able to function fully under the current version WIN will not allow me to update.

Hello,

I have a Gateway PC Windows Vista computer about 2 days ago I started getting a problem that I was not able to boot the computer on the first try the line I saw that might be the problem is this:

Client MAC ADDR: 00 19 21 32 E4 AA GUID: FEFEFEFE-FEFE=FEFE-FEFEFEFEFEFE PXE E53 No boot filename received

To ME it appears that it is looking for a MAC computer and not a PC to boot. Yesterday after SEVERAL attempts I was able to get the computer to fully load and it worked fine. I did a computer check with AOL software came back no problem. Did a scan disc NO problem did a defrag no problem too. The hard drive is saying there is no problems.

Today I tried and I saw the message above and this time I can't get the computer to go past it. I do not have a boot disc every time I tried to follow the step to create one it said the disc was not big enough. I was using a read write CD.

Now I am getting this message on a blue screen:

If this screen appears again follow these steps: Check for viruses on your computer.

A:Please help can't boot PC thinks it is a Mac:o(

Client MAC ADDR: 00 19 21 32 E4 AAClick to expand...

That's talking about the MAC Address (also called the Physical Address) of a network adapter; probably your ethernet adapter. This is a new error to me; my guess is that in the BIOS "boot from network" is enabled and the computer had trouble finding the boot manager on the hard drive and then tried the network.

Maybe the hard drive is loose (if laptop) or a connector to it is loose (if desktop). You probably got some documentation with your PC that will show you how to check the hard drive for the possibilities I mentioned. Else there should be some user manuals on their web site.

I think my guesses above would also cover the other symptoms you're getting.

I have one PC on my home network that will not allow any of my other PC's to access its shared filed and folders. At one point, it would not allow me configure Windows Firewall. I found an obscure document on the Microsoft site that says there were problems with some updates activating Small Business Network functions on home networks. I was able to find and delete the registry entry that had set a group policy keeping me from configuring Windows Firewall but have not been able to find where the rest of the server security policies are being set. I have removed and reinstalled SP2 - as the issue started after one of the automatic updates loaded about 6 - 8 months ago. I have also removed and reinstalled Norton Internet Security.

Hello all,

This is my first post here but i gotta ask for some help.

I was perusing the internet today and i got a window from Zone Alarm saying that it found and cleaned a virus. I have had viruses before so i immediately knew that i would have some work to do and that zone alarm most likely DID NOT clean it out.

I think I was right, i checked in zone alarm after a reboot and saw a new process in the program control that looked suspicious (no vendor or program discription at all, my other virus i had a while back did the same thing). The virus i had before was a little more obvious to me and i was able to clean it out but i'm not sure what to fix right now.

Also, now i can't get internet explorer to open, it opens and immediately closes before i can do anything with it. I had to put firefox on my pc from my laptop just to post here.

anyhow, could someone please have a look? I would VERY MUCH APPRECIATE IT.

I used a number of the programs you'll see in the list (ad aware too) to scan and i did in both normal and safe mode, but nothing i used found anything.

Thanks very much.

Whenever I try to view a streaming video the buffering bar starts out nice and slow, and then starts doubling itself! Soon it's up to 100% and the movie starts. In about 6 seconds the play bar has allready caught upto itself. I can't just press pause and wait for it to load either because it's a streaming video . So any help would be great.

A:Help my computer thinks it's better than what it is!

Try opening up Windows Media Player and going to Tools>Options. There should be a tab on there that deals with buffering or internet connections. On this tab you should be able to adjust the time allowed for buffering or the speed of your connection. You may want to specify a minimum time for buffering in this tab.

since everything that they asked me to do still would not allow me to reinstall MSN7. Since all that I can use now is IE and it is so slow that the program kepts aborting. I downloaded this one instead and have attached the log. Can you please tell me which is any of those listed should remove?

Hello! I have just joined this forum so be nice

My OS is Windows XP SP3.

I've never had problems before: I recently bought 50 blank Infiniti DVD-R discs. The software I used is CovertXtoDVD and basically, I added a film to the software for converting, an hour or so later it tells me to insert blank media, so I inserted a 4.7GB blank DVD-R but my computer is telling me the blank media is a CD. I have also tried putting a numerous amount of discs from the 50-pack spindal into a different computer and it is still telling me they are CDs.
When I go to 'my computer' after I inserted the disc, it has no mention that it's a DVD in the drive. My guess is that there is a problem with all 50 discs? As I say, I've never had problems before and have used the same software and same kind of discs for a very long time now, the problem has only started with this brand new 50-pack spindal.

Please help, thank you.

Hello,

Here's the scenario

p133, 65 ram, creative52x cd-rom, windows95c

For any disc I put in, it's recognized as being an audio cd; but it's not an audio cd. It's a program disc. Microsoft Office in fact.

cd drivers are intact and correct

There is no rhyme or reason. I don't know what additional details will assist, so please let me know what you think.

Sincerely,

PS
I've searched through all the other possible posts on this site and other sites. None is quite the same.

For example I've already tried what Sky7 suggested, funny thing though, regarding the following quote...

"HKEY_Machine...System...CurrentControlSet...Services..CDFS.
Change the Start key from "4" to "1" Voila!! Normal recognition of all types of CDs restored!"

...I don't have CDFS in Services. Only Print...Printers.

What's a gal to do?

Hi. I am in the process of trying to get Windows 98se to recognize my CD-ROM drive. It disappeared recently when I was trying to fix another problem, but this problem is more basic. I have booted up using a startup disk and the CD-ROM drive can be accessed by that method, so it is connected and working. The CD-ROM doesn't show up in My Computer, Device Manager, or System Information. I think that it is detected by BIOS, however I'm not exactly sure what to look for in BIOS to confirm this. What should my next step be, or what additional information do I need to include so my problem can be identified? Any help would be great, so I thank you in advance for your efforts.

My dad thinks I'm running a VPN and somehow under windows folder is a folder called "vroot" or "v root" or "v-root" something along those lines. What is that folder and how did it get under there? The laptop is a HP. He said it had my files under there. How can one find if there is a VPN on there computer? If there is how can one get on there because I did not put it on there?

A:My dad thinks I'm running a VPN?

Do you recognize the folder? I am only asking cause VPN does not come configured by default, that is a service you or someone else had to set up. My only thing you can check is right click on the files in there and check the created date to see if that helps ring a bell.

My realtek display also shows headphones or speakers connected to the front panel when nothing is there.

I don't have much idea why that would happen, other than something got messed up in the account.

On Feb 25th, there was fraud on my account, 10s of charges almost simultaneously. Bank canceled my debit card, then sent me a new one. I changed the username and password for my online banking account. On Mar 25th, there was another fraudulent charge. I only had time to use the card twice online, and that was Amazon and Time Warner. After I noticed the fraud the second time, I transferred my remaining balance to my savings account. I googled the charge and it was some kind of Netflix type business for magazines, based out of NY, same location as most of the charges from the last fraud. My first thought was the subscription just renewed itself and my bank must of made the mistake of approving it on my new card. I went to my bank a few days later, told them about what happened. They swore that they would never approve a charge that was carried over from previous fraudulent activity. I asked if there was any more activity after I transferred my funds out of that account. There was three attempts to charge $12.99 to the card, but all were denied, so they couldn't tell me what the charges were for. They said I most likely had a keylogger on my computer.
 
I didn't notice anything odd with my computer before the fraud, and I haven't since then either. I haven't noticed any activity with any of my other accounts, but of course I use LastPass, so maybe it just hasn't had the chance to log any of my passwords yet.

I had a perfectly working PC with XP Pro installed on a 160Gb Maxtor HDD.

For no reason I error checked the hard drive, which the system did after rebooting, at the end of the test the system rebooted and announced that there was a error on the boot and boot.ini.

Useing XP Emergency (on disk) I tried fixmbr which did nothing then I tried Fixboot. XP found the drive identified it as FAT and said that it was successfully fixed.

The drive was FAT and is now unusable. Partition Magic sees it as a FAT drive as does XP when I switched the HDD into another machine.

I have a couple of file recovery programs which see this drive as FAT and will not show up any files. I tried a demo of Partition Table Doctor 3.0 which sees it as NTFS drive and claims it can rebuild the table to make this work again, but being a demo will not do it until I pay $49

I have checked various reviews and the only positive ones seem to have been left by the same person (The broken english is the same on them all.) So I am very dubious to hand over the cash.

I need the files on this HDD desperately, theres alot of crucial stuff there since my last backup which I do do (but not as often as I should have!)

I have booted using a Live Linux CD (Knoppix) and that shows as a FAT there too and I do not have any expertise with QPART or Linux either really.

My question to you lovely people is.... Anyone used PTD 3.0 and can honestly recommend it for this problem, or if anyone has any other suggestions to that t... Read more

Well, this problem is a bit of a saga, and I'm not sure where to start.

Firstly, I build the comp myself and the specs are:

ABIT KG7-RAID - Latest BIOS
256MB DDR 2100 ram (128 of twinmos, 128 of crucial - had same problem with just the twinmos one, before I bought the crucial one.)
ATHLON XP 1500+ (with coolermaster fan, upto 1900+ apparently, keeps it at about 42degrees, so should be ok?)
Liteonit 40x12x48 CD/RW
40GB hard drive
Creative Soundblaster 128 PCI
Intel V92 HaM data fax voice modem
All-in-wonder 128 AGP - 16mb graphics card
a cheap 550W PSU - http://www.bit-tech.net/review/123/, upgraded from the 300W one that came with the case
Windows XP pro
The problem is this:

Whenever I play direct3D games, the computer either spontaneously restarts or blue screens beyond return. This is the same under DXDIAG when I try "test direct 3D", BUT I can get through these tests if I disable AGP texture accelaration. Whatever I do, I cannot seem to get through the 3dMark 2001 tests, (at 800x600 with everything else at minimum) it will play the car driving thing for 10/20 seconds, and then just restart the computer, or drop to the desktop. This is all with the ATI all-in-wonder.
At first, I thought this was just the allinwonder being old and rubbish, so I bought myself a nice new Gainward GF4 MX440. The same problems now, but 1000x more often. The computer now resorts to restarting during normal computer use (e.g. surfing net, using my computer etc). I thou... Read more
