Preferred Solution: WTF! Giant Quarter on Screen!

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'm hoping someone can help because my laptop is driving me crazy. Sorry if I'm posting this in the wrong section - I'm not v technical and need someone to help because Dell's helpline is pants

I'm trying to connect wirelessly and sometimes the connection is OK and everything is fine but once every two or three times connecting, I can't get a connection at all and when I click on the windows repair thing, I get a blue screen saying something about drivers. There is a bit of code which says something like stop and then loads of numbers (I've got a feeling that will mean something to someone but it means nothing to me!). Anyhoo - like I said, sometimes the connection is ok and then sometimes (like earlier) it's taken me about 2 hours to get connected and I've had to restart about a squillion times.

I don't know what info you might need to help me sort this but if someone could it would be so helpful because I'm not v good with computers and I just want it to work My laptop is a Dell Inspiron 6400 - I've got Windows XP on it and on the invoice bit of paper that came with it, it says its got a dell wireless 1390 wlan mini card in it (don't know if that helps). I'm trying to connect to Virgin wifi and we have a permanent connection upstairs and thats fine so I figure there is nothing wrong with that side of things.

The blue screen thing is really scary and its happened about 30 times now and it seems... Read more

A:Scary blue screen - giant brain needed - help!!

Take the hint about a driver and make sure you have the latest driver from Dell's web site for your 1390 wireless adapter.

If you can connect OK via ethernet use that to get the driver. If you already have the latest driver it may be corrupted, so go into Device Manager, right click on the wireless adapter and uninstall the driver. Then Restart your PC yet again and let Windows install the driver again for you.

If the problem continues you will need to post the exact error message to get more help. Or, you could first do what we will do--search the web for that error message.

Hoping y'all can help me out. I have a Toshiba Satellite L455-S5975 (everything is stock except for extra RAM). When I start it, it simply goes to a black screen and stays there. It does not load the Toshiba screen, the windows screen, or anything else. Just black, No cursor.

This has happened in the past and I've fixed it before. I would unplug it and pull the battery for 24-48 hours and it would boot and I could launch in safe mode then do a system restore to before the update. Doesn't work this time. It seems to do this is an automatic windows update runs and then it restarts the computer. I didn't think that I let it run the update, but it's showing the same black screen that it has in the past when the update ran.

I created a repair disc on another windows 7 computer, but it was 64bit. Not sure if that matters. Put it in drive, turned toshiba on and got the same screen.

I downloaded Hiren's BootCD, burned it to a CD, inserted in drive and turned on toshiba. Same screen.


What else can I do at this point? I definitely don't want to take it to the Geek Squad, but I don't know what my other options are. Reading through the forums, I know you guys are seriously smart on computers - help me computer badasses, you're my only hope!

A:Toshiba Black Screen, No cursor, no boot = Giant Brick

I've had this problem before. Just hold down 0 before you start it, then when it gets to the cursor screen, turn the computer off, still holding 0. Turn it back on again, and it should go to the Factory Reset screen. Simply exit out of the window and... Tada! Fixed.

Solved?

Hi !
Since a couple of weeks my 6 months old notebook (HP Pavilion DV1451EA) frequently freezes. I'm running an up-to-date Windows XP. These lockups only happen during the first quarter after boot-up. Once the computer is up for about 15 minutes, the problem doesnot occur anymore. A freeze lasts between a couple of seconds and a couple of minutes.
Does anyone has any suggestions on how to resolve this problem ?

Thx,

- it doesn't make a difference if I'm connected to my Internet modem or not.

A report from Quick Heal outlines the top malware afflicting Windows and Android device users, and offers a brief description of each of the malware families.

The second quarter of 2016 saw a small decline in the detection count malware in both Google Android and Windows-based devices. However, this decrease should not be mistaken as a sign of weakness in cyber-criminals, according to a report from Quick Heal Technologies.
The company's research labs recorded a steady increase in the detection of potentially unwanted programs (PUPs), but noted a more concerning matter was the 200 percent increase in the detection of mobile ransomware in this quarter alone. In fact, this level of detection is almost close to half of all the detections in 2015.
Additionally, newer variants of Windows malware have joined the pack of the top 10 malware of the second quarter and security vulnerabilities have swelled to scary proportions.
The report outlines the top malware afflicting Windows and Android users, with a brief low-down on each of the malware families, and lays out the difference between the malware detection stats of this quarter and that of the previous.


The report also includes some observations about certain malware that caught the company's attention due to their unique behavior.
Compared with the previous quarter (Q1 2016), this quarter has seen a decline of 16 percent in the detection count of malware on Windows computers.
The top malware was Trojan.Star... Read more

Guys,

FYI: Microsoft plans to ship the final relese of IE 7 sometime during the four quarter of 2006 through Windows Update. The release will be made avaliable to users running Windows XP SP-2 through BOTH Automatic and Manual Windows Updates. HOWEVER, users will be presented with a screen before installation to:

1.) Install the Update

2.) Don't install the update

3.) Be prompted at a later time.

Additionally, a PERMINENT automatic update blocker for IE 7 will also be provided. This blocker will NOT prevent manual installations of the program by doing a CUSTOM Install at the Windows Update site nor prevent the installation of any CD Rom software through which IE 7 is included.

More information can be found here:

A report released today on the software products with the most security flaws in the past three months reveals that almost a quarter of all entries on the monthly Top 20 list were various types of security products.

The report, released by Flexera Software (formerly Secunia), is based on the Flexera Top 20, a list of software products for which security flaws came to light during a calendar month.

According to Flexera, the Top 20 list for the months of August, September, and October included 46 software products that totaled 2,162 vulnerabilities.

The company with the most vulnerable products during this three-month period was IBM, while the most vulnerable product was the Avant Browser.

11 of the 46 apps (23.91%) that found their way on the Top 20 list were security products, from vendors such as AlienVault, IBM, Juniper, McAfee, Palo Alto, and Splunk.

Most flaws were in third-party libraries, not the apps themselves
In most cases, the security flaws didn't affect the security app per se but was a security issue in one of the third-party components and libraries embedded in such products.

"This highlights how important it is that software producers understand the third-party components used in their products and the vulnerabilities associated with them," the Flexera report reads. "All producers ? including those that develop security software ? must act quickly to patch vulnerable components and inform customers, in order to avoid exposing them ... Read more

Hi everyone, still quite new to Win 7 but having a couple of small but annoying problems.

First. The quarter moon stand by button on the keyboard has stopped working for some reason ? I don't think the keyboard's at fault so would appreciate any advice what to do....

Second. The laptop's connected to a 24 inch screen so I like to work with the lid closed, but occasionally when I open the lid for something then close it again the screen goes dark and the text becomes very small. I've tried a few simple suggestions in troubleshoot but still no luck. Again very much appreciate any help....

Grateful thanks in advance.

A:1. Quarter moon stand by button not working ? 2. Text gets smaller.

Control Panel > Power Options > Choose what the power buttons do. Set the "When I press the sleep button" option to what you want to happen when you press the half moon button. If its disabled you may need to change your Power Plan to one that supports hibernation/sleep. Or go into the Change when the computer sleeps and see if its disabled (set to never).
Somewhere in there is a setting for "When I close the lid". I'm on my desktop PC so its not listed for me. You'll need to look at those settings for item no 2.

Hi carol, you would need to reduce the image size in a graphics program, like Adobe Photoshop, Photoshop Elements or Paint Shop Pro. Adobe Photoshop is rather expensive, but Photoshop Elements and Paint Shop Pro are arouns $100. There are free image editors out there, I just don't know the names of them, try going to http://www.download.com and look under the graphics section and there should be some editors there you could either download for free or atleast get a free trial to see if you like them.

Recently my computer has started displaying giant pixels anytime I want to start up a computer game like The Sims or Trickster. For a while I thought it was just 3-d games that were not working but then I tried playing a 2-d pixel game, and I had the same problom, here is a screen cap of what I am talking about.

The computer that I am running is a eMachines T3256.
It has a nvidia GeForce 4 MX graphics card.
Is there anyways that I could fix this with buying a nother card, or downloading something, or will I have to take my computer in to someone to fix it?
 

A:Giant pixels, I need help

Re The Sims (original?) - your card should be able to play that

Re Trickster - your card doesn't support DX8 for 1.1 pixel shaders so probably cannot play that

Re the pixel problem - uninstall your present nVidia dtrivers in Add/Remove programs, reboot, and install the latest drivers.

edit: if the l;atest drivers don't fix it, uninstall them and try one of the 53.xx series - they apparently could, with hardware assisted software emulation, support vertex shader model 1.1.

I don't think rebate informer/rebate giant qualifies as a virus. It looks as though it installs an Inbox.com toolbar and some desktop shortcuts. Uninstall the applications, and the toolbar, and delete the shortcuts if they are left behind.

There are no files in the registry, but there are references to files. Be mindful of travels in the registry.

I somehow turned off the giant close button, the one you see in windows explorer, the internet window, and in winmail. The only problem is I liked the giant close button. I think what I did is change the theme to classic, and then back to vista, and it gave me this rounded box as a close button. I was just wondering if there was any way to put it back the way it was. Here is a picture

A:Giant Close button

Hello WeirdFrog, and welcome to Vista Forums.

I'm not sure of what you mean. That is the normal close button in Vista for non classic themes.

You might see if adjusting the size of the Caption Buttons item in the Advanced Appearance settings (step 6) to a large size may help. It will increase the size of the close button.

Sometimes I seem to get a HUGE context menu that goes completely from the top of the screen to the bottom. It seems to have a lot of options that aren't normally there on a simple right click. I never know what I did to get this menu and it seems to pop off about as fast.

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.2.13) Gecko/20101203 BRI/1 Firefox/3.6.13 ( .NET CLR 3.5.30729; .NET4.0E)

Windows XP at home and XPPro at work.

It has happened on both computers.

Just curious as to what this is and what I did to make it appear and disappear.

A:Giant Context Menu

Hi,

I know that sometimes default settings get changed by accident. If you want you can try and change the settings for the browser. If you hold down the CTRL key and then use your scroll wheel you can change the size of the text on the page. I can look for a more permanent solution for you if this doesn't work.

Cheers!

I accidently did this:

"The user Eigenaar, has decided to prevent a change to
the user's defined shell folders from Recent to %
USERPROFILE%\Onlangs geopend."

How can I undo this?
Because now I can't use some of my programs, or install
some new programs.

Is it just me, or do you think IE is consumed with advertisements? Is there a good option to eliminate all the popups, popunders, and continual video/audio ads?

By the way, I just bought a new laptop with Win8 so I'm struggling with my mind as I transition from Seven to Eight. . .

A:Internet Explorer - A Giant AD?

Use the Desktop version of Internet Explorer and add the two EasyList and two Fanboy Tracking Protection Lists from the following link. After added, the lists update themselves automatically.

Internet Explorer Gallery

You can also change what pop-ups are allowed by going to Internet Options > Privacy > Pop-up Blocker Settings. Personally, I block all pop-ups and then whitelist any sites that I want to allow pop-ups from (or CTRL click links to open in a new window and bypass the pop-up blocker manually).

I just installed WIN XP on a virgin harddrive. I don't like icons on my desktop so I like to use quick launch for recycle bin. my ISP and Internet Explorer. When I checked quick launch my taskbar grew to double its size. No matter how I moved or squashed it, it was either gone or double, but never the normal size. As soon as I uncheck quick launch I can compress the taskbar back to normal. Ideas and fixes welcomed.
 

A:the case of the giant taskbar

Have you got large icons selected for the quick launch taskbar?

To check, unlock the taskbar, then right-click on the quick-launch bar, and from the popup menu choose view, then large or small icons. Small icons will return the taskbar to normal size if this is what the problem is.
