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.)

A: problem connecting 98SE comp to Xp comp but not visa versa

On the XP machine:
1) Is the firewall turned off? If you have SP2 it is turned on by default.
2) Have you shared any folders yet?

Sorry if a problem similar to this one has been posted before.

The office network I'm on recently had a virus attack on two out of the 5 main computers. Might as well list them to make it easier for my explanation:
1. Operations
2. Accounting
3. Boss
4. Server
5. Reception

All the computers have Windows XP Home installed on them. The Boss' computer is wired, the rest are wireless.

The first two computers (Operations & Accounting) were badly affected. Had major troubles booting into WinXP, I had to use the Repair option in the Setup screen just to fix the problem. Some outside tech guy was called in to fix the virus problem.

So that was done. The network worked for the most part. But there were some big problems.

I have the Operations, Server, and Reception computers sharing folders.
The Operations, Boss', and Accounting computers are sharing printers.

Printing between the computers and the printers directly connected to those computer are just fine.

The Accounting, Server, and Reception computers are supposed to be allowed to print to the Operations computer... and also be able to access the shared folders. But when I try to access the folders, I get this error window:

An error occured while reconnecting O: to \\Operations\Shared

I have a HP running Vista, and also have a second computer (Dell) with XP. I have a cable internet connection through Comcast, with a modem they provided (an ARRIS model, they have a sticker over the exact model number). I have a DLink WBR-2310 Wireless G Router. The primary computer has an internet connection but I cannot get the second to connect. The second computer does not have an ethernet port so I have a USB Etherlink connector from Comcast (model XNUE-101C), which allows the connection to plug into a usb port instead of ethernet. The guy from Comcast said I need the driver for the Etherlink which I found via a google search and downloaded from the primary computer then loaded onto the secondary with a floppy. I also installed the driver on the primary just incase. All I did to install was dl the driver which was a zip file then uncompressed, is there more steps needed to properly install the driver? I know the router is functioning properly but it is not showing any connectivity for the line that is running to the second computer, no matter which port I plug the line into. I'm out of ideas and any help will be appreciated.
 

A:Problem Connecting Comp. with Dlink and usbetherlink

After unzipping your download wasn't there a setup (or some other .exe) to be run?

Is your USB ethernet adapter showing in Device Manager as OK? Does it show up in Network Connections?

Does the adapter have a LED on it, and does that light as well as the LED for the corresponding port on the router when you connect the cable?

Hi.
I just got my new laptop and I am trying to transfer files from old computer to it. I tried to set up a home network by following the wizard. When I go to My Network Places from my new computer, nothing shows. I tried pressing the View Workgroup computers button from there and all I got was:

"Home not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions."

What should I do?
 

A:Network Problem. New comp can't access old comp.

Create a file in notepad named FIXANON.REG with the following contents:

------------------- Use text after this line -------------------
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa]
"restrictanonymous"=dword:00000000
------------------- Use text before this line -----------------

Double click on the file and say Yes to the merge into registry question.


If that doesn't do it, let's follow these basic debug steps.

Turn off any firewalls for debugging. If the firewall is the problem, you'll have to configure it to allow access to "trusted zone" addresses. Note that some firewalls must be completely uninstalled to stop them from affecting your networking.

PING each computer by IP address, and if successful, PING by name. You can obtain the IP address of a computer by opening a command prompt (DOS window) and typing IPCONFIG. This should work for any Windows version. A failure here needs to be corrected before you go any farther.

Check your Services are Started on all PCs: Workstation, DHCP Client, DNS Client, Server, TCP/IP Netbios helper, Computer Browser.

All computers should be in the same workgroup for computer browsing to function properly. File & Print Sharing has to be enabled on any computer you wish to share files or printers from. You also need to actually share the resource in question from My Computer, right click on the drive/printer/folder, and select sharing.

Hi there. I have a Dell precision T5400 with 3 drives- C drive 450GB 15ksas
Render R drive 300GB 15k sas
and Media M drive 1TB 7.2k sata

I currently have this on XP 32bit and are looking at partitioning the 450GB drive to run Both XP32bit and Windows 7 64bit. I heard that if I create a file in 64 bit OS that it some how formats it and if I read it on the 32bit OS it wont read it. Is this true?
Also should I divide the partition in half say 200GB for XP which has Avid Liquid on it(video editing software) and 250GB for windows 7 64bit which will have Avid Media composer 5 on (also video editing software - Best on the planet!)

Any comments would be appreciated

A:can a 64bit read 32 bit files and visa versa?

There's no problem reading files.

The 32 bit OS can't run 64 bit executables. The 64 bit OS can run both 32 and 64 bit applications. (There are few 64 bit applications at the moment.) The 32 bit OS needs 32 bit drivers, and the 64 bit OS needs 64 bit drivers.

As an aletrnative to dual booting, you could consider running the stuff that needs XP in XP mode under Win7. That's actually XP running in a virtual machine. (It's free, but only with Win7 Professional or Ultimate.) I've never tried it (Home Premium user), but it is supposed to work well.

Hi all, if anyone can help much appreciated.
My current set up is that there are 2 PC's,one downstairs and new one in my room which i bought and my xbox 360. The downstairs PC has the router, a D-link 2.4 wireless router, which is the main one and my room has a D-link Dwl-810 to read from it for connections. Before I got my PC in my room my xbox 360 connectionhas no problem, but now I seem to have a bit of problem staying connected for first time. When I have been using my PC with xbox turned off, after surfing net, I turn PC off, disconnect cable in back of PC and put it into xbox, turn xbox on and everything works fine, then about 3-4 mins later I get disconnected from Xbox live, and the only way to re-connect is to powercycle the downstairs main router and then I can connect again. This also happens when its the other way round, after using the xbox first and then going to PC, same thing, have to powercycle to get connection to work again. Is there anyway around this problem, like I said before I got my PC in my room I had no problems connecting to xbox live but now I do,also the connection for both seems to drop after couple of hours of so and powercycle needs to be done again, its annoyingto having to keep going downstairs and powercycling, also the downstairs PC works fine and doesn't lose connection at all even when PC in my room/xbox does.
 

A:Solved: Internet drops when switching from xbox to PC and visa versa

I don't know; maybe it's just the Dwl-810 getting old and giving warning.

Why not just get a wireless adapter for the PC?

is there a way to quickly switch default audio from speakers to HDMI and visa versa with one click or even automatically switch to HDMI when displaying to a 'digital television' (or when an HDMI cable is plugged in) and switch back to speakers when displaying to the 'monitor' (or when the cable is unplugged i am doubtfull of this though as my intel graphic tray has enough trouble switching back to the monitor when the HDMI is unplugged i have to do it manually beforehand)

my main line of though is two batch files, one for switching to HDMI and one to switch to seekers, or one with an if statement i.e.

if (default_audio == Speeaker) set default_audio = HDMI
else set default_audio == Speeaker

can this be done

ok. i use charter cable and had some problems with my internet having outages. they said the upstream signal was being fritzy, so they came and ran a new line. since then i had a problem where my ping times were ok (with exception of a little packet loss), but loading a simple search engine took an abnormally large amount of time. i formated the HD, then i did a LOT of spyware removal checking and virus checking with a friend of mine and the system is clean. i DLed some new motherboard drivers for my nForce chipset and it appeared the problem was solved. for a day i had great ping, no loss, and good internet connectivity speeds. however, NOW i'm experiencing good internet speeds, but horrible ping. connecting and loading a game of CS takes the normal amount of time, but as soon as i hit the server my ping climbs from 30-40ms all the way up to 400-900 (hard to tell because net graph tells me something other than the ping listed on the game board).

The only questionable thing I see is this HOSTS entry, but I doubt it's causing all the problems you describe.

O1 - Hosts: 64.91.255.87 www.dcsresearch.com

I'd sign up at DSLReports and do their PING test a few times, it'll let you know where the packet loss is happening. What you describe sure sounds like an ISP issue.

A:Newbie questions. Will anti-spyware, etc. slow down comp? Best way to optimize comp?

As a rule, you use:
1 firewall
1 antivirus
* Norton is not the best program around, and it's a resource hog, but since you bought it, you'll have to live with it until it expires.
* Using more then one of each is asking for problems (conflict).
As for antispyware programs, you can have as many, as you want, however, I wouldn't use more then 2 as startups, since you want fast computer.
Your computer specs look very good, but the lower number of startups, the better (this is another thing to check).
As for antispyware, I'd keep Spyware Blaster as a startup program, and I'd add a-squared: http://www.emsisoft.com/en/software/free/
You may want to run others, you have once in a while, or when any problem arises.

In addition, you want to keep your computer clean of garbage, and for that purpose, you want to get CCleaner: www.ccleaner.com

Once a month, you want to run defrag. I recommend free jkDefrag: http://www.kessels.com/JkDefrag/ instead of Windows defrag.

That's about it. If you have more questions, please, ask.

I've got an annoying problem I'm trying to smooth out. On my 3-computer LAN, I've got network shares set up on all three comps. (Not homegroup; not public folders; those aren't workable for my situation.)

On my main work computer ("Comp A") (Win 7 Home Premium), whenever I open the sharelist on either "B" or "C", I have the extreme pleasure of waiting 8-10 seconds before the shares on the requested machine are presented.

Other than that, the shares work perfectly, except for the annoying delay every time I want to use Comp A to open the list of shares on Comp B or Comp C.

What I'm sharing: My user directory on each comp. (I'm the only user on this 3-node LAN.) Sharing with Homegroup or Public Folders isn't feasible.

When the delay happens: Courtesy of Wireshark, I've learned that when the delay occurs, it occurs after "Negotiate Protocol Response" and before "Session Setup Request".

I'm also getting the same delay behavior on one other computer (Comp C), but only when accessing the share list Comp A. Here's the specific run-down...

Computer A
Windows 7 Home Premium
Hard-Wired
8-second delay opening shares on Comp B and Comp C.
Computer B
Windows 7 Ultimate
Hard-wired
No delay opening shares on Comp A or Comp C
Computer C
Windows 7 Ultimate
Wi-fi
8-second delay opening shares on Comp A (Home Prem.) but *not* Comp B (Ult.)

I want to be able to print from my XP Computer to the Vista computer in the other room, wirelessly.

XP Home
Vista Home Premium
New, Shared Printer

Printer on the Vista computer is "shared"...I don't know anything about networks
I use control panel: "add a printer" -> "A network printer" -> "Browse for printers" -> it shows some sort of window with icons that don't really mean much to me:

One category is called "Workgroup" and when I click it, the Vista name of the computer in the other room shows up, but nothing happens when I double click that. I connected to a wireless printer a long time ago this way when one was connected to an XP computer, and the actual name of the printer would show up.

Does anyone know how to do it?

I recently set up a workgroup called "workgroup" so that my two PC's could share files.

The XP comp is called Qing, and can access the workgroup and log onto the linux server called Han (running Fedora 6 with Samba) . Once logged onto Han from Qing, I can see the shared folder, but when i try to access it I get the following message:

"\\Han\share is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions. The network path was not found."

On Han, the linux comp, I have set up a shared folder called "share" with full permissions.
I have enabled NetBIOS over TCP/IP and rebooted and still no luck,
I have searched the internet and these forums for a similar problem but was unable to find anything that I could use.

Any help would be great!

I always go DVI when I can. Once you get used to it things just look kind of dingy on DB15. As far as your black screen problem have you tried just swapping out the DVI cable? Perhaps you have a dual input monitor and just need to switch over to digital input from analog?

My other computer runs well and hasn't had any troubles. I tried replacing the network card and the cable but to no avail, it just won't connect. I have deleted and uninstalled all previous cards but nothing helps. I also tried the netsh reset commands but that doesn't fix it either. This is the ipconfig info.

My dad has expensive construction software that he needs on a day to day basis, but his laptop is dying and very slow. Currently his laptop runs Vista x86, and I wanted to give him my laptop that runs 7 x64. Could I swap the hard drives so that its an easy transition, or would that not work? Thanks for any input and suggestions.

A:Hard drive from one comp work in another comp like it did before?

"his laptop is dying and very slow"

that might mean his hard drive is bad, or that he has too many programs/malware installed, in which case you would not want to put his drive in your laptop.

But to answer your question, it depends on how different the chipset drivers are between the two machines. But if you have the win7 x64 install dvd, you should be able to do a repair install if windows is not able to boot after switching hard drives.

Hi there, this is my first post, ill try to be as detail specific as possible so here goes.

We purchased this computer around 3 years ago from the site, everything default from the manufacturer.

It was regularly used for work/homework/research. Then it was used primarily for gaming (a game that eats the HD quickly)

We added a 9200AGP Radeon Graphics card, and bumped the computer to one gig of ram.
We then gave it a wireless ethernet card.

Through wear and tear it became slow, would take a long time to boot up, would restart on its own, and sometimes even blue screened.

We had used the HP recovery to try reformatting, and bringing it back to a better day, but it didnt do much.

Just recently i decided to do a full reformatting, deleted both partitions and set up a brand new partition for Windows XP professional.

Everything is looking good, computer is faster, boots up quick, doesnt restart/bluescreen/shutdown at all.

But its completely unconnected to the internet. I went to the HP site and downloaded the drivers for it, burnt it, transferred it to the computer, installed, and still had no connection.

Has anyone had this problem before? Does anyone know of a way to get it connected back up to the internet?

Thanks so much for your time, and im sorry for the long run on post.

I would apreciate any help you guys could provide, it would be a life saver.

Thanks

if the laptop is wireless then you should be able to connect directly to the wireless router - then its just a case of file sharing - no need for ICS at all

You dont need to the mobile modem or wireless - if the laptop already has a built in wireless adapter - if not then you can use the mobile wireless to connect to the router

I know its a long story, but it has a point. (I think )

I'm "fixing" my Sis-in-law's computer (yeah, I'm probably not the best one to do this). It runs XP, but I'm not sure what kind of computer it is. At Thanksgiving, she says to me, "my computer is running slow." I said, "what kind of virus protection are you running?" (I know that's not the only reason a comp can run slow, but I figured it was a place to start.) She tells me, "we had something on it a couple of years ago, but it expired." I had her start up the computer, which we're gonna call "Bob" for clarity. Bob has 3 users set up. On User#1 (the main one), I noticed she had a fake virus alert mal. She says it doesn't pop up on the other (also admin) users. I said, "Don't worry, I know a program that can take care of that." I downloaded Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and told it to run. It couldn't so eventually I ended up over on User #2, where it finally started. I told it to run a full scan since Bob had been unprotected for so long. We left before it finished. I have attached the first 2 logs mbam produced. (it's a long story as to why those are dated in December.) So my SIL calls to tell me she can no longer connect to the internet, and User#1 has nothing on its desktop, and isn't functioning properly. Everything I have done since has been from User#2.

could this be a compatability issue or a fault?


i have tried the windows 7 repair tool but comes up saying cant fix problems. tried restarting from a earlier time, and iv also tried to boot from the windows 7 disk but it just freezes so i can boot or install.

Hi,

Recently had a virus on my computer. Had to take it to the geek squad to get it fixed. Brought it home the other day and it would not connect to my wireless network (I am on the other laptop in my house that does still connect). It would connect before I got it "fixed". I brought it back to the store the next day and they tried a few things. I will connect to their wireless in the store.

I originally had Geek Squad come out earlier this year to set up my wireless router and the guy who helped me at the store said it might be because of a certain way he set my computer up to connect to the router which got erased when my computer had to be restored.

Now they want to charge me an extra $89 for them to come back out to the house and fix it.

Is there anything I can do to try to fix this myself without forking over even more money?

I was able to find the second one on my XP Computer. But when I went to transfer the file to my Win 7 Computer, I could not find the appropriate folder. There IS no Documenst and Settings. Nor is there a an IM or Identities folder.

What do I do?

I REALLY need to have these old messages. There is some very important info I need to have.

Thanks!

A:Incredimail From XP Comp to Win 7 Comp, help?

They have a tool in the program to do this: IncrediMail Help Center: How do I transfer all of my IncrediMail files and settings to another computer?

In Win 7, the folder is Users, not Documents and Settings. From there, it's probably Roaming, but I'm not positive. I don't and won't use Incredimail.

I have a pproblem with my computer. When using ATItool, when i press "show 3d view" i hear this clicking noise every 5 seconds or so and it sounds like something is being turned on and off. . . i don't know if this is dangerous but i want to know what it is. The molex splitter that powers my video card (its aux power connecter is a floppy power) is splitting off to the vid and the slot cooler. The slot cooler has a built in Y adapter which is connected to the hard drive. . .

PSU -> splitter ->Vid Card
->Exhaust blower (to cool vid card) -> HDD

thats how it works. . .

Look at my sig to see my specs and my PSU is 450 watts with only 14a on the 12 volt...

Any help is appreciated. . .
