Vundo Trojan - Removed but now Live Sync doesn't Sync

Q: Vundo Trojan - Removed but now Live Sync doesn't Sync

Hi
I got a Vundo Virus on my XP desktop (currently using my Vista Laptop) and it took some doing, but MalwareBytes seems to have cleaned it up.
I have notice two seemingly residual problems (at least I never had these problems before)

1. Live Sync doesn't sync the files.
I have been syncing the XP desktop to the Vista laptop and never had an issue, in fact it was one of the MS programs that I thought actually worked really well.
Now, everything says that it's working but nothing is syncing.
I checked the Port Status, Initiate Connection shows OK on all 4 ports, but Accept Connection has Blocked on all 4.
When I stop and restart Live Sync, I can see the Vista laptop goes thru all of the files, but does nothing after.
If I do the same on the XP, it seems to look and find no files to sync.
I have tried uninstalling and re-loading on the XP, no help.

2. My Windows 6.5 phone would not sync with ActiveSync either.
I found a troubleshooting post that said to uncheck in USB->PC "Enable advanced network functionality", so I did and the phone did sync, but before it did a warning came up on the phone saying that this would completely delete all contact, calender and mail data and they would be re-loaded with the sync (which IT did - took forever).

Did this Trojan screw with my syncing ability in a general way?

Thanks
Randu

Preferred Solution: Vundo Trojan - Removed but now Live Sync doesn't Sync

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 all, 
can anyone tell me or point me to a source that will give me clarity on the question if the GTX960M in the XPS15 9550 does support NVidia G-Sync via the USB-C/TB3 Port? Of course I would need an adaptor from USB-C to DP if the Screen only supports DP as Input but the question here is about the G-Sync capability of the XPS15/the GTX960M. 
Thanks in adance
Regards

A:XPS15 9550 - NVidia G-Sync on External G-Sync Monitor

According to nVidia, the minimum GPU for G-sync is the GTX965m.
www.geforce.com/.../system-requirements
The notebook mainboard must also support G-sync  -- something I suspect the 9550 does not.

Hi,
I've got a problem with Windows 7 service pack 1 machines that were installed between 2011 and 2015 using Sync Center.
On these machines, I do not get either
1. Sync Center icon in the taskbar
2. Sync Partnerships shown in Sync Center (accessed through Control Panel).
Sync does run, and the CSC cache contains an offline copy of the files. I simply need access so I can identify and troubleshoot Sync issues as the user.
A new imaged machine since 2016 does not have this problem.
We are running Lenovo machines and am aware of the Rapidboot issue, however that software was only installed on laptops and the problem is with both desktop and laptops.
I believe it may be down to Windows updates applied between 2011 and 2015.
From a machine that is NOT working, I have listed all the WSUS updates below that were install. This list however is approx. 150 updates and I do not want to have to remove each individually to find the problem. It may also not resolve the problem once the
update has been removed if I could even identify the update.
I have read that the following updates could cause problems, however after removing these two it made no difference.

I run a business out of my apartment. For over a year I've been using Mesh to sync files, Office Live to share/store them, and Logmein free for remote desktop connections. I would use the built in mesh client more often but it doesn't have enough options for manipulating the color settings for remote desktop. Within the last week when I try to use office live there is an obnoxious banner across the screen asking to upgrade to skydrive. Live sync made me uninstall mesh, but seems to work similarly enough in its current version (not the beta)

I have all my computers synced with my phone and iPad via sugarsync (it has a common folder with windows live sync) and was wondering what the benefits of using sky drive would be for syncing things between my PCs.

Additionally, when I briefly tried the windows live sync beta it had an option for sharing with office 2010. Does that work fairly well? I use the standard .docx, .xlsx .pdf and .ppt files primarily.

What are your thoughts about it?

Anyone like it?

Anyone hate it?

I personally like it, but my only complaint is that when you install it, it?s set to run automatically when windows start by default. This I believe can cause confusion; it should only be turned on when the user needs to. I found this out when I deleted some files; it would replace it with the copy that was still on my other computer.

Okay, this one is a doozy. We had our storage server OS drive crash on our domain which required a reinstall. Luckily the data stores were all there still on a separate RAID, so it was just a matter of redoing the shares after the reinstall. However
we ran into a problem with several laptop users.

As soon as they plugged into the network today, all the work they did during the outage appears to be gone. They appear only to have access to the files on the network (which of course isn't current). As a test, I've tried disconnecting them from
the local network to check their offline files (disabling wireless and unplugging the dock) and they appear to lose access to everything as a result now... both desktop and files.
I've attempted a sync in Sync Center but it simply says "Sync Pending" and hangs there.

When I try to navigate to view my offline files on the system through the Sync Center interface, it says "The system cannot find the file specified."


Out of curiosity, I tried manually navigating to Windows\CSC and access is denied. Even when attempting to take ownership as local admin, it still doesn't want to let me in.

As many of the solutions suggest, I know I could delete the cache and format the db and sync fresh from our network, but they will lose out on all the changes they've made to their documents over the past week or so. They may lose out on a significant

Hi Folks,

I use Bittorrent sync to sync my music folder across two computers. BTSync has managed to screw up, however, so now I need to sync these two folders such that no files are deleted, missing files are populated in the respective computer, and where conflicts occur (i.e. files are not identical), I'll either choose which one to keep, or just the latest version is kept.

In the past I'd probably use xxcopy to do something like this. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance...

A:how to sync partially sync'd folders

I use Beyond Compare to keep folders/files in sync, which is a 2-pane wonderfully powerful and wonderfully intuitive and simple to use product that can do anything you want.

You can update-to-left/right, or mirror-to-left-right, or simply compare and decide for yourself what you want to do.

You can also compare files (not just TXT files but other file types as well), with the two files presented in a side-by-side comparison so that you can decide what you want to do.

You can filter the display to show all, differences only, or equals only. You can also filter what gets compared (e.g. if you only want to compare *.FLAC, ignoring *.MP3, you can do that as well).

It's not free, but it does have a free trial. Give it a shot.

I cannot recommend it strongly enough. Been using it forever.

One doubt, I login to the system with a Windows Live ID and then make some changes with the Charms on the desktop. If I reinstall windows and then login with the same Windows Live ID would the system still pickup the changes that I made.

A:Sync Windows Live ID question

If I remember right, yes, it will. I did that back when with the Developer Preview, changed the Desktop wallpaper, and the Start Screen color. Then I logged in with my Live account in the Release Preview and it picked literally ALL my settings from the Desktop and I think the Start Screen as well. By Charms, do you mean the sidebar UI or the apps? If you mean the apps, I don't think those will come over unless you're using the same Windows build, like I don't think the Consumer Preview apps will carry over to the Release Preview.

I'm not sure if this is the appropriate thread for this... feel free to redirect me to the correct one if necessary...

Is there any way to stop Windows Live Sync? I began syncing the music libraries between my laptop (Vista) and my desktop (7, rc1) about twenty two hours ago.

As far as I can tell, all of the music has transferred... I have scrolled through both libraries, and everything is there, song for song, artist by artist, on the two machines... with one glaring abnormality.

At the end of the desktop library is a folder called "Unknown Artist" that isn't on my laptop (the laptop is older, and is the source of all of the music; the desktop is a week old, and is on the receiving end). This folder seems to be the problem.

I think this folder may be one I deleted from my laptop about a year ago (don't ask). It used to reappear in my library from time to time, but it hasn't done that in many months.

At this point, I figure whatever folder Live Sync is trying to sync won't be synced. And as long as the folder is tied up with Live Sync, I can't simply delete it (I've tried a few times).

Anyone know how to safely interrupt the sync?

Thanks!

I will start at the beginning, it has been a frustrating couple of days since I had to reformat my hard drive.

I reformatted and reinstalled Windows XP Pro sp1. I put the Microsoft firewall up to get the MS updates, and then I reinstalled Norton. I have a bug in my system that seems to be contained, for now that is.

I reinstalled office XP, and then i downloaded the update (SP3). I am not getting an alert that says that something is trying to get access to my Outlook contacts. I assume that it is my Hotmail account (yes, I do have the ability to download). I get the alert, click "OK" four or five times, and then Outlook locks up.

When I reformatted, I lost the software Sprint gave me to sync my Samsung i500 with Outlook. When I contacted them, they said tough, I had to buy more software. Frustrated, I broke down and bought Chapura. Now, I am probably so frustrated that I cannot get it started to sync even once.

Microsoft is now ignoring my requests for help to gain access to MSN mobile through my handheld. Does anyone have any infomration on how to get to msn mobile even though mobile.msn.com does not take me to a personalized homepage to get my information?

I am an intermediate user, so I know my way around a bit. I have a hijack this log available, as well as a Belarc run. Let me know if you need anything to help me with this problem. I am just frustrated.

Hello monk,

Please be more specific. I am sorry, but what is an online account other than Hotmail? Hotmail is an online email account that Microsoft uses (along with outlook.com, live.com, etc) for many of their products.

You can use it to log into a computer that has been set up to use it. And you cannot use other email providers for this service. However, if you are speaking about outlook or something else, that is a different matter. I just need some clarity. Let me know!

My wife and I have been using WLM for email and Calendar for a number of years. We have a Laptop running Vista and a Desktop running Windows 7. We use this as an email client although we use Rogers Yahoo Email. Both email accounts (Dianne and Andrew) are set up as POP3 and are functioning properly. But the Calendar and Contacts which have been syncing between the 2 machines up until about 2 weeks ago are no longer doing so. When WLM is open and I sync on all email accounts there is no problem. But when I press Sync Everything an non-specified error occurs and the Calendar and Contacts are not syncing either with the other computer or the Outlook.com site account

This happened in mid August as well and I logged in to our Outlook.Com site account and reset the sharing permissions to Co-Owner and that seemed to immediately solve the problem.
I have tried the changing the same setting a number of times this past two weeks and have not had any success.

I do not think that this is machine specific because we can make a new Calendar Entry on the laptop and it does not appear at Outlook.com nor on the Desktop. Same for the reverse. A new entry in the Outlook.com Calendar does not update on either machine

Any suggestions?

A:How would i Sync a Windows Live Mail account on 3 PCs?

The only free way I know of that you can do this with Windows Live Mail is to maintain a common Hotmail account or a Gmail account configured to use the imap protocols (intructions for setup included in the Gmail account settings). The way both work is that the account is kept current on the web and then that is shared and syncronized with each copy of Windows Live Mail configured to use that one web account.

Hi, I hope you can help. Apologies in advance if I've posted in the wrong area as I'm new here - please redirect me if necessary.

I've been using Windows Live Mail for around three years and have never experienced any major problems, but
today, after closing the program and and re-opening it a few minutes later, a message appeared saying Live
Mail was 'syncing' my accounts. Afterwards, it started to download the exact number of emails I already had in my inbox (over 1,000) but once it had finished, no new emails appeared in the inbox. The same thing happened with my synced gmail account.
Since then, both of the above accounts seem to be working normally, but the entire contents of my two non-Live Mail accounts (including inbox, sent items and drafts) seem to have vanished and I have no idea how (or if it's even possible) to get them back.

Also, on checking the Recycle bin, I found six items that weren't there before and don't know whether it's safe to restore/delete them. Two are "Text Documents" with names starting edb; two are JRS files with names starting with edbres; one is a Recovered File Fragments file and the other is a File Folder called Backup.

Please explain what's happened here and if there's anything I can do to retrieve any of the missing emails.

First, make sure your clock is set to the correct time zone.

Right click the clock.
Select adjust date and time.
Next select change time zone.

If your time zone is correct you may have a bad CMOS battery but you can get around it by having the system sync more often with the internet time.
1. Go to start
2. Type task and hit enter
3. Click the arrow on the left next to task scheduler Library
4. Click the arrow next to Microsoft
5. Click the arrow next to windows
6. Click the folder Time Synchronize
7. At the top right click Synchronize
8. Click properties

For syncing from my Moto G Android 4.4.4 Phone to
my Samsung SM-P900 Tablet Android version 4.4.2,

1.) Do I assume correctly that I will Not lose the documents and pictures that are already in the Tablet folder that I plan to sync to?
I am a sync-newbie, and don't want to possibly overwrite the folders that I will be syncing to.

2.) Do I need an app to do the sync?

Hi,

I'm using a live.com account as online calendar with my MS Outlook2010.
But I didn't find out how to have the categories saved also online.

In MS Outlook 2010 I defined 6 categories and I also want to save them online to sync them to the other clients.
But looking in live.com I can?t see the categories.

Is there a way to sync the categories to other clients (MSO)?

Can I connect to the live calendar with other clients like Thunderbird or Evolution Mail client?
Does anyone have some experience?

My Wife uses WLM (Desktop) installed on her PC to access her Google email address.

A friend installed a Google calendar on her Desktop which is not linked to her Gmail account except for login purposes,
that is the Calendar is not available if you go to the Gmail account on the web.

Is there some way to sync the Google Calendar with the WLM (Desktop) Calendar?

If I have left out required information please let me know.

Regards

A:How to sync a Google Calendar with my Windows Live Mail Ca

2 Options , export your google calendar and import it into calendar (WLM), but this will not keep it up-to date as it's a 1 time import , or subscribe to the google calendar from within calendar (WLM)

from the old vista install,including favorites.
I had maybe 6 favorite sites in the list for the past few days.
Now,today,all of a sudden all the old favorite sites are back in the list.
How did that happen?LOL
Not that I'm complaining,it's just wierd.

DUH,never mind,I'm on the wrong computer.LOL

I noticed today that some screenshots show a yellow star icon to the left of the sign in area on the toolbar that allows you to sync favorites among other items.

You can see it on this example:



Then today when I was setting up a new laptop I notice that it was present on there (laptop has vista 32-bit on).

Ive tried everything such as reinstalling to try and make it appear but its not working. Its not just the icon either, there should be an entry in the toolbar options page which is also missing.

Any ideas?

A:Windows Live Toolbar missing sync option

Just figured this one out! It appears to be a service only available in the US currently. So if you want to use it follow these steps:

1. right click on Live Toolbar and select options,
2. go to search and add-ins
3. select united states in country or region.

I have live mail on my office pc. I press update all, it syncs online & my web browser based (live) hotmail gets all the new messages, folders etc. I want to go on holiday with my netbook.
1. When on holiday, I have live mail on my netbook. If I press sync, will it then download/update my netbook with all the browser based hotmail messages/folders etc.? So my netbook Live mail will look just like the office PC Live mail, will it?
2. When I get back off holiday, on my office pc, I press update, this I presume will then get all the new messages/folders from the browser on Live mail, will it?
3. But then now I am back, I want to delete all the messages/folders off my netbook for security, If I press or it accidentally, or I go away again & press update all on the netbook, will the browser Live mail then update the folders, deleting lots of them, as it is using the netbook as the latest update that it thinks I want? So to summarise, is there a setting on my netbook live mail, that says ?delete these folders/messages, but don?t delete/sync online??

A:I want to sync 2 laptops with Live Mail online, but then deleteLaptop

1. Yes. That's the nature of synchronization.
2. Yes. But note that if there are a lot of messages to be synchronized, it might not all happen at once. It might take more than one sync cycle to bring everything up to date. Once you're satisfied that all is in place, I would close down WLMail on the static machine and leave it for a few minutes to update its databases, which happens after shutdown and on startup.
3. Once the static machine is up to date, on the mobile machine right-click on the account name in the folder pane and select Properties. On the General tab, deselect Include this account when receiving mail and synchronizing (that was the setting you were looking for). You can then delete what you like.
Alternatively (and probably safer), simply remove the account (right-click and select Remove account). This will delete everything from the mobile machine without affecting the webmail account. Then next time to go on your travels, add it back (Ctrl-Shift-T). You only have to enter the email address and password, then wait for the full sync to complete - again, probably needing more than one sync cycle.

Kay so I have Windows 7 64-bit and am using iTunes version 9.0.2.25.
My 8GB iPod Nano syncs fine, Windows 7 recognizes it as an iPod Nano when I check "Devices and Printers". It works with iTunes, opens up right away as it's supposed to and I can put music on it.

Now my 32GB iPod Touch is a different matter. Using the same usb port and cable, I plug in my iPod Touch and iTunes opens and attempts to sync. Eventually, it stops syncing, then I see it in iTunes as my what I named it, capacity at the top is 29.28 GB. Weird thing, at the bottom, capacity is only 4 GB (about 2 GB left)!?!?

Then I check "Devices and Printers" and it shows under "Unspecified" - Apple Mobile Device USB Drive. Under properties I see model says "iPod". It doesn't show any errors with it, other than the fact this isn't how it shows up for my iPod Nano, and I believe it's not syncing correctly. It charges fine, by the way, while plugged in.

iTunes still shows my iPod Touch attached, I can see all the files and music on it, but it won't sync or transfer any new files.

I'd like to get this working properly. Any suggestions?

Hello everybody,

Whenever OneDrive tries to automatically sync its files (or manually too), there's a pop-up on the desktop saying: OneDrive Sync Engine Host - OneDrive Sync Engine Host has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Please close the program.

I have googled it a lot and tried the CMD command posted as a solution, but it didn't work unfortunately.

Does anyone have any idea how to solve this problem, or maybe fully reinstall OneDrive as it is a standard feature of Windows 8.1 Pro...

Thanks in advance!
