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.

my other pc which has the following specs:

athlonxp (socket a), 512 ddr400, xp pro, 40gb hdd, 350 watts psu and fx 5200 128mb

was reformatted but shortly after installing xp pro with sp 2 it restarted and crashed after the drivers were installed. the ram is ok because it came from my other pc and i used ramtest overnight and it was clean. my question is: why did it restarted when it should be a clean install? can a scratched xp cd cause crashes because it was not able to copy some files and i think it was a little smudgy when i used it. i think there is abad spirit in our house that is causing this even my newere pc is acting up.

Hi there,
Our DVD collection is getting wrecked by small children getting them out, leaving them out, putting them back....scratching them everytime. Is there anything out there where we can load our collection and access them without the need to touch the DVD after the initial load. I've looked at DVD recorders with a HDD, Lifebox from Maplins, external hard drives and still not absolutely sure whether I'm going down the right route? I've got used to loading my CD music onto my MP3 player, now I need a DVD version for the TV! Any help to point out the obvious to me would be much appreciated.

A:Help! Another scratched DVD..What do I need?

DVDs are copy-protected which prevents any type of copying. There's no technology-related solution to the problem. Perhaps after your kids wreck a few of their favorite movies, and their parents don't replace them, they'll handle them more carefully.

Hi guys, new to the forum, but needed some help removing a virus or two from my computer. Started running just a tad bit slower this week and I started getting pop up's all over the place. I downloaded the the latest Spy Bot and cleaned everything up that way, but I also ran a Virus Scanner and it came back with the following results:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\iehlpr32.dll is infected with Downloader
C:\Program Files\eSoftware\studio.dll is infected with Trojan.Zlob

I was able to go in and delete the second file, simply by searing for it and deleting it. The first one, however, would not let me touch. Any ideas on how I can get my computer back to normal? Thanks, and just an FYI, I'm not the most computer literate person out there. I'm more than serviceable, but nowhere near an expert, so I'll probably need step by step instructions if it becomes involved. Thanks alot.

I use Feedly to read RSS but I wanted a desktop client to do the job. I googled up and found FeedDemon and Feed Reader as better alternatives. I tested out both and found FeedDemon more interesting and useful. But the problem is it doesn't go to system tray. It simply closes (checked out in taskmgr) and exits. It does a good job by updating the feeds for intervals we set and notifying about new feeds, but it sits on my taskbar I wish to minimize it to system tray and display notification when a new feed comes in (it utomatically does the second part)

A:Can someone please suggest a remedy?

Sorry I didn't explore it properly! I overlooked the FeedDemon options tab. I found it, we can set the option to be minimized to ST.

I scratched my motherboard while removing the Heat Sink of the CPU. Actually, its the opposite side of motherboard where you mount the Heat Sink Holder bracket. While removing it i scratched hard on the motherboard and it looks damaged. I can't test it by starting it as I don't have other stuff ready. But I have uploaded some pics and you can tell if it is bad enough to cause damage.

PS: My Motherboard is Gigabyte EX58-Extreme

A:Scratched my Motherbaord

Do you have a test light handy? If so, grab a 9V battery, and hook up one side of the test light to the - side of the battery, and another wire to one end of the scratch. Run the probe end along the scratch lightly, and if it lights up (without physically touching the other wire), you have likely damaged the motherboard.

My operating system is XP professional SP2. Through years of use my system disk has alot of scratches on it, can this cause problems trying to do a clean install on a system. I know most big computer stores sell scratch removers, will they really help to restore my disk to almost new condition.


A:Scratched OS Disk

It would depend on the severity of the scratch.
You could try to copy the disk over to the HDD to make sure that all files are able to be read.
If they are you can use something like Magic Iso to make a copy of the disk so that you will have a spare.
Be sure to get the code from the disk before disposing of the original.

my laptop lcd screen has little scratches at the bottom of it...any way to fix this?

A:scratched screen

Touchy - is it a flat sheen screen or a glossy 'Brightview' type? There's little that can be done for scratches on a flat 'frosted' type, as any attempted fix would only make it worse. As for the glossy types, as long as the scratches are not too deep, there are some eyeglass repair liquids that can be used, but again, only for visual esthetics - if the scratch is deep enough to see it on edge (IE: twisting the screen back and forth), it's probably just something you'll have to live with. The only sure fire fix is a screen replacement.

Hello . I bought some computer parts several years ago and bought vistahome premium64 dvd builders, service pack one. the dvd no longer works because of light scratching, so I am using unbuntu. The company I bought the dvd from recomended that since I own the licence it could be down loaded with a torrent from pirate bay .
Is that really ok to do that? What do you recommend id like to find a solution without having to buy a new os.

A:vista dvd scratched

Since you do have a key, we can help. That being said, to download from Prirate Bay would be very foolish and may contain OS that have been altered to no longer being legit. In addition, you will most likely download more than an OS and have even bigger problems.
May I suggest, that you read the posts contained in the link below. After you understand that due to the generosity of one of our members, you can leave your email address and you will be emailed a clean, safe copy of Vista.

I've seen machines that are supposed to polish the CDs; but, I really don't know what kind of damage they are capable of correcting.

Does anyone here have any experience or recommendations concerning them? If they are any good, I certainly will be using it quite a bit so if there are any meaningful differences, I would like to hear about it.

As for copying the disc, we can't help you with copying anything that is copyright protected as this is against the forum rules. I have heard of some success with using car wax to buff the scratch out, but if it is too deep it won't help. Another solution would be to try something like the technique used in this article.

I have a T70 with a Lenovo SSD 0.5 TB by birth, which seems to be Samsum 960 M2 or similar, w/ Windows 10 Pro.I had no problems adding a NVMe 960 PRO M2 1 TB use as a Data repository while I was still researching my real motive for it, to install W-7 Ultimate 64 and create hopefully a dual boot.As stated, I had no problem recognizing and formatting the 960 Pro. as data for W-10.After serious research, I was eventually able to create an installation USB with the proper drivers for the SSD and successfully installed W-7 in the 960 Pro, with perfect function. For those interested, you must remove all others drives, from the machine, to install.I was planing using the BIOS boot selection for the OS choice, lacking anything better. Alas, for now, both SSD can not get along. Booting W-10 will corrupt the W-7 drive, so I had to repeat the W-7 installation.There is also a Crucial SSD 1TB drive installed, which I use for Data of both OS.For the time been, I simply have to plug-in the SSD of the OS I want to use, removing the other one. Fortunately this is quite easy to do in this machine. With just the eventual inconvenience  of reinstalling the bluetooth mouse, everything works perfectly.I am hopping for a genius to find a more convenient and safe way to double boot.Cheers.

Yesterday after discovering that my homepage was changed and that I was continously being diverted to adult sites I started going to work to get rid of the problem. However I haven't had much success, as Norton, Spybot S&D, and Spy Sweeper can't remove it from my computer. After numerous attempts to delete the homepage and search items with HJT(they all returned whenever I logged into IE or restarted the computer) at last the homepage and search page problems were solved with the IE hijack shield provided by Spy Sweeper. The problems that remain are the continous pop-ups, and the links created in regular text (words like 'cash', 'here', 'body', etc) that link to adult sites. I did increase content security as I have small children and I discovered that paticular problem on Neopets, but obviously that doesn't solve the problem of it being there it just blocks the site that it wants to go to.

Anyway, I have run a new HJT log, maybe someone can identify the hook that won't let go of my computer. By the way Spybot calls them AV-Gold, Trek Blue Error Nuker, and CoolWWWSearch.Aff.Winshow; and Spy Sweeper calls them cws_ns3, cws_tiny0, and cws-aboutblank.

Scanning the web today [October 30] I still do not see a credible "all clear" signal regarding the JAVA exploit. This team came up with a patch:
Researcher Develops Patch for Java Zero-Day, Puts Pressure on Oracle to Deliver its Fix | threatpost
but I don't see affirmative Greenlight from the major 3rd party security firms.
And as the article clearly shows, its not foremost on Oracle's "do list" .

how are the big IT shops coping? Turning off all things Java?

A:JAVA Exploit Remedy?

I'd like more information on this JAVA problem too since I've been affected to the tune of 200 bucks for the DELL IT guys to remove the Trojan that was installed on my puter.

From what I've read, the security problem was only supposed to affect JAVA 7, but I had JAVA 6 before all of this bull. The only fix I've seen is to disable JAVA in your web browser.

I took it the next step.... I removed it from my puter!

I'd like to know if JAVA and ORACLE are going to have to pay for this? I wish I was puter savvy enough to remove Malware myself, but since I"m not, I had to get IT to do it. I wouldn't have needed to though, if JAVA wouldn't have had so many security holes in it.

I'm trying to install my boyfriend's game LOTR Battle of Middle Earth II, but the CD has a scratch in it (not actually a bad one, shouldn't normally be bad enough to stop installation according to me). I managed, after a whole night's work, to install the game, after copying the entire thing - including the damaged file, textures1.big, which I had to try to copy about 20 times before it finally let itself be copied properly - onto the computer. It now installs fine and runs all the way past the end of the opening movie, but then it gets stuck at a picture where those two giant statues are holding their hands up, and won't go any further. I came up with the ingenious idea of burning the complete CD from the computer to a new CD to make it work that way, but of course a 700MB CD isn't big enough for a 5GB game! Does anyone have any ideas? As I said, I have the complete game on the computer, surely I must be able to do something with it? Is there a way to get the game to run totally from the computer (it's currently running from the CD and think the reason it won't play is because of the scratch)?

While packing I found a rare CD from a local band which I thought was lost forever. It has a good few minor scratches. I'd like to rip the tracks.

The CD took a few minutes to successfully load and play, I'm listening to it right now.

Freerip wont load the track list, so I can't directly rip it to MP3 to my hard drive.

I tried putting them on my desktop and then using Any Audio Converter to convert them to MP3, but there is no data in the CDA files I put on my desktop.

This is a rare CD from almost 20 years ago and it would be of tremendous benefit to myself, Galway's music scene, and the world, if I could get these audios off the CD.

I'm thinking that I could rig up an audio line and pipe it into Audacity and record them live that way, but that's tedious and may result in a drop in quality - I'd like to hear any other possible solutions first.

Thanks guys.
