Preferred Solution: My google crome icon in the activity bar is weird!

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:GOOGLE CROME & error 101

Hi, welcome to TSF

From http://www.google.com/support/chrome...&answer=117804

Quote:




Installation issues: Error 101

Issue
These errors occur when the Google Chrome installer is unable to create a temporary directory on your computer during the installation process.

Solution
Check the permission for your temporary folder.

1. Go to the Start menu > Run.
2. Enter one of the following directories in the text field:
* Windows XP: %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings
* Windows Vista: %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local
3. Click OK.
4. In the window that opens, right-click the Temp folder.
5. Select Properties.
6. Click the Security tab.
7. In the "Group or user names" section, select your user profile name.
8. In the permissions section, verify that the checkboxes for "Read," "Write," and "Read & Execute" permissions in the "Deny" column are not selected.
9. Click Apply.
10. Click OK.

Try installing the browser again.






Also, check your security programs settings. See here for more details: http://www.google.co.uk/support/foru...b40aa781&hl=en

A:Google Crome won't open files

Chrome is not a file browser - which is what you appear to be using it for.
You should use Windows Explorer ('Computer' NOT Internet Explorer) for browsing files on your own computer.

I'm running a laptop with Win 8 & Google Crome and like the software to save my passwords which it is doing except for Gmail. It will not save them. Matter of fact the option box does not even pop up for me to try and save them. It will work for all other sites so is there a setting somewhere that I need to change to allow ALL passwords to be saved. If there is I can't find it and it's driving me nuts because I have to check my accounts numerous times each day. " Offer to save passwords I enter on the web " is selected in the Crome settings.

A:Bottle Neck When running Google Crome With Core i3 2nd Gen

I have a computer that has 2 GB of RAM at 1066 MHz which is 1 yr. old, when I use google chrome, firefox and CS5 at the same time it only uses 61-65% memory, its weird that you only have one page open on chrome and it uses 200 MB memory, Are your browsers up to date? If not update it. I think it has something to do with your RAM, probably you have a memory leak from what I know. What are the extension and add-ons in your chrome that is using that much RAM? I have 32-bit W7 when its idle it uses 20% memory.

Do you mean tabs or windows?
If tabs...
Close all but the tab with the URL you want to open as your start window.
In the upper right, (below the [x] to close Chrome),
you will see an icon that is three horizontal bars.
Click this. (Left click!)
Go down to "settings" (near the bottom of the list), Left Click.
It will open a new tab.
In the second section (On Startup) you will see three options.
The third is "Open a specific page or set of pages".
Left click the link to "set pages"
Left click the button that says "use current pages"
and your current "list" will clear and become only the tab you have open.

Ok, my 1st time here, seemed like a good place for some advice.

My basic problem i'm connected to a network and it seems to be changing its security type. jumping from WPA2-PSK to WEP.

I'm using this same wifi antenna. What's weird is no other detectable network does this. my pc's network access menu only rarely shows the change from wpa2-psk to wep but I did get inSSIDer for checking this thing, and it does show its changing security types about every minute or so.

The other strange thing it would never let me connect at all with just entering the key, only by manually making a network. sometimes it shows full bars, others (like now when i'm typing) it shows a red X over the icon.

I went and checked 192.168.0.1 for any strangeness but can't find anything in there, but it is broadcasting 2 separate frequencies, 2.4 and 5 GHz at the same time. I can see that both frequencies are set to use WPA2-PSK, with the same password but different SSIDs.

The noticeable thing is when it has the red X the internet seems slower, and tends to just not let anything after the 1st few minutes of using the net.

Any ideas what's going on with this stuff? i've never seen any network do this.
And yes, i'm on neighbors wifi, and they do know i'm poking around. any help would be appreciated.

P.S. I can do screenshots if needed/appropriate.
 

A:Weird Wifi Activity

howdy and welcome. Whether or not the neighbor knows about your using their wifi is immaterial, as it's the ISP that makes the call as to whether or not it's legal. And ISP's do not allow that, unfortunately, so I'm going to have to close this one up.

thanks for understanding,

My laptop is fairly new (only got it 3 weeks ago), but already i have experienced a BSOD around 2 weeks ago and two crashes, both a few days apart.

Today's crash was odd though: I forced a restart when it became unresponsive (i was installing updates at the time) and as it loaded it came up with the usual safe mode suggestions, but then, after telling it to start normally, it came up with a black screen with some white text and was cycling through registry keys. It was over very quickly so I'm afraid i cannot give more details, but i remember seeing "600 items" or something similar. Is this a vista recovery operation or something more sinister? After it was done, the computer didn't continue to load up but restarted itself, at which point it loaded fine.

Anyone know what this was? Thanks.

Oh, i also checked the reliability tool but nothing reported for the 13th.

A:crash then weird activity

Hi. . .

Given the fact that you experienced a BSOD on a 1 week-old new laptop and now seeing the information on subsequent crashes, I would recommend that you reset the laptop back to factory condition by re-installing Vista via the recovery partition.

Usually you press an F key to invoke the recovery partition - it may be F10, F11, ctrl-F11, or the esc key. Look in your owners manual for the exact key/combination.

This will place your system back to the way it was when you turned it on for the first time.

If you have difficulties or questions, please let me know.'

Backstory: OK so the household has never had 'decent' internet as such and it has always been quite slow because of where we are, old house, etc etc.
We must be on some sort of low band 'talktalk' internet which has to be 3mb or 4mb at the most 5mb, nothing major. It is forever lagging out often reconnecting seconds later or there has been problems with our regional providing tower which means we've been out of internet due to technical problems or weather
Speed.net tests have resulted in around the 4.5mb on a good day and that's if noones using except on person. When everyone is using it its considerably slower because of the obvious bandwidth consumption.

So lately, and realising the problem it must be for a good 3-4 months now, things have been becoming a bit temperamental to do with the internet connectivity from the wireless router to my laptop. But it was only little things so I just assumed it was bandwidth or our provider had done something etc.

Well anyway, things like messengers started signing themselves out and then back in again, often lagging out before it happens meaning I don't get what people have said or messages haven't been sent. This happens mostly for Live Messenger and Skype. Only Skype now because I no longer use Live Messenger and for ever have to appear offline to save them from me constantly loggi... Read more

have had no issue at all for a long time and all was well. Then this week I was on my pc (Windows XP) and went to shut down the pc, but when I went to Start to look for shute down it was not there and neither was the Run command. I researched online and found out it maybe called the quickinfo virus. I followed a few steps and got back the run command and shutdown button. I though all was fine but now when I go to open Adobe Photoshop CS I get and error I must have Admin rights to load program and it shuts down. I looked at user accounts and their is only one mine and it has admin rights. Also if I hit ctrl+alt+delete it says it has been diabled as I do not have admin rights.

How do I fix this issue?

Is this the name of the virus I have, or is it something else?

I pasted what I followed to get links back below just as FYI. Please help as I can not do any work. Thanks Much
Open a command prompt (CMD) from accessories menu -> type "gpedit.msc" expand the user configuration node -> expand admin templates -> click "Start Menu and Taskbar -> int he right pane look for "remove run menu from start menu from start menu" it should be set to "not configured" if it is double click it set to enable, click apply, then set to disable and click apply. if it's set to enabled then set to disable. Reboot and see if run's back on the start menu.

Hello All,

I have a weird activity going on with my HP laptop. The laptop is a custom DV3. Here are the specs:

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit (upgraded in place from Windows Vista Home Premium 64bit)
Intel Core 2 Duo P7550 @ 2.26 GHz
BIOS version: F.12
4GB DDR3 ram
NVidia Geforce G 105M w/ 512MB dedicated video ram
HDD: WDC WD2500BEKT-60F3T1
I have been noticing that my computer has been slow lately and that every time I restart, Win7 starts the chkdsk command at boot. The abnormal thing is that it hangs at the end of the "hit any button to skip check" countdown. The other issue that I have is that under Disk Defrag, my C: drive does not show up. I believe that this is due to the "dirty bit" being active on the C: drive.

I have tried to do the commands listed on this page: http://forums.techguy.org/windows-xp/465184-volume-dirty.html
and unfortunately I am in the same position. I do not want to let this issue run rampant and I feel that I am at a stand still with it.

Any help or advice would be awesome. I am hoping I do not have to format to fix this issue.

A:Very slow desktop and weird activity

Hello and welcome to BleepingComputer! I am Elle and I will be helping you out with your problem. Firstly, you should know that we are working with specific tools which are used to identify the possible threats present on your system so I will analyze the results they produce. As a start we need to have some more up-to-date logs than the ones you have already provided. The current state of the files on your system might have changed so we need to get a clear look on that aspect. DO NOT bring any changes to the system except the ones I tell you to as that may produce more damage than helping us. If you will encounter a delay of over 2 days from me, please don't hesitate and private message me (link in the signature). Do not forget to check your topic periodically and subscribe to it so that you can receive notifications regarding my replies.Please generate another DDS log (download it from http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/sUBs/dds.com'>here if you haven't already) and post it in your next reply along with other changes that may have occured since you last posted.Also download and run GMER from this link: GMER download link.Thank you very much for your patience.

OK, I know I'm little nuts... aren't we all?... but this has been bugging me since I installed Vista and maybe you guys know if there's anything I can do about it.

It's the network activity icon near the clock... I much prefer to know the exact activity of my PC and the internet/network PC.... in WinXP this icon would flash in tune with which computer was doing the "talking". This helped me many times figure out if it was an issue on my end or on the internet end depending on how the lights would flash. Not exact, but I used it as a quick guide.

...but in Vista, the icon seems to just have a simple animation that repeats over and over (I've turned on "enable activity animation).

The icon has gone from something usefull (telling me which computer was sending data... to just being a simple animation that only animates when there's overall network activity.


So.... anyway if getting the older more acurate activity animation back?... or would this require a third party download now?

Thanks for any tips,
TK.

A:Network activity taskbar icon...

Hi Teknomedic,

Yeah, that bugged me to. The most accurate way to view network activity it to use Task Manager. Press Ctrl+Shift+Esc and click on the Networking tab in Task Manager.

You might be able to find a Windows Sidebar Gadget for it to.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hi,

I notice that my internet activity status (I'm on dial-up) shows stuff being sent/received, even when I'm not doing anything. Anywhere between 300 and 1000 bytes (approx.). It does it if I have OE open but not doing anything, and the same with Firefox. It also does it when I don't have any programs open. However, I don't *think* it does it all the time, because there have been times when I'm connected but don't open any programs and just wait to see if it lights up, and it doesn't.

Any help is appreciated -- thanks!

A:Why Does The Little Icon For Internet Activity Light Up When I'm Not Doing Anything?

The reason it lights up, even if there is no activity internet related, is the fact that information needs to be sent to your ISP (Internet Service Provider). This allows your computer to stay online. Nothing to be worried about.

When I first start up my pc, whenever I open a folder with files in it, if I haven't opened that folder since it was shut down, my hard drive starts accessing and my mouse pointer turns into the little circle while it's waiting for something to finish. At that point I can't do much of anything until it's finished, which takes around half a minute or so usually. It happens with a folder with media files in it, and even just text files. What could be causing this? It's very annoying. Could it be my antivirus (Avira)? Is Windows doing this? Could I have some setting enabled in Windows that causes this to happen? Once the folder is opened and it stops whatever it was doing, it won't happen again until I shut off the pc and open that folder again. It seems something is scanning the files in the folders when I open them.

So I've been having this problem where my computer is constantly laggy and I noticed that my computer tower is constantly "loading". I'm not sure if thats the correct term but the yellow light that shows processing activity is constantly blinking and you can always hear certain sounds coming from it, even if I'm doing nothing at all. Even at startup, I will constantly get clicking sounds from the tower and I noticed that a disk boot sound comes on once after I login to my user name. This had never happened before, and usually only get a disk boot sound directly after turning on the computer or when scanning for viruses. I dont know if its a virus or just a system problem but I remember getting viruses which will constantly cause activity the computer.

This started when my virus scanner McAfee expired. I uninstalled it and installed Trendmicro. I had to uninstall Spybot and Malwarebytes prior to installing Trendmicro but reinstalled it after. I also installed AV antivirus because I thought it was similar to Spybot and Malwarebytes where it would be like a secondary program I can use as backup. But when I installed AV, it started automatically and interefered with my Trendmicro and I had to do a bunch of things to uninstall it or disable it. On Trendmicros first scan, it found one virus, Malwarebytes found nothing and Spybot found a couple things. I had not run Spybot in a while though, but usually only get cookies.

Good day!
I hate to bother you. I am having a little bit of questionable activity on my computer. My son visited a game site at Andcon and played some games and since then, things haven't been quite the same.

My computer is a Compaq Presario S6000CL. I am operating with Windows XP Professional and have the disc. When I got the computer, it had Windows XP home edition. For some reason, my computer seems to wrestle with deciding which one to run upon startup.

The problems I am having are:
- When I open the antivirus, the updated software alert comes up with options to install now or later.
- The antivirus says there is a software update that has been downloaded and is ready to be installed but if clicked to install now, it turns off the antivirus and does nothing afterward.
- Certain images are missing and are replaced by a dotted line square.
- My home, new tab, and back buttons are whited out.
- Scans by SuperAntiSpyware, MalwareBytes, and Vipre Antivirus return saying no infections.

Hi,

I've been having a weird icon bug for some time now, and i was hoping it would fix on it's own, but no luck.
So, sometimes, some icons simply disappear, as shown in the picture below, and it takes some time to load everything, like 1 minute.

All of the files shown in the picture below were folders, except for FPS Booster which is an .exe that does that media player trick. I have tried resetting the thumbnail cache, running disk check and sfc /scannow but nothing corrupt can ever be found. Any suggestions?

PS: The books folder has a special book icon i use for it, is that why it's the only one that shows the folder icon?
PS2: Don't know if it matters, but i use AeroGlass and Startisback. I use windows 8.1

Hello and welcome,you will be helped in a few days as we are backlogged. ALL logs are replied to so we ask your patience.Now that your log is properly posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a Malware Removal Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.From this point on the Malware Removal Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the Malware Removal Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Removal Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply.

You're fine. Everything you see is proper. If you'd really like, I can explain each part, but I think you just wanted to be reassured no one was spying on you.

I can't even log into my gmail because of this. It says:

I do have another problem that when my computer starts up I get a little warning about services and controller app....once that's done, I get an error that says "NT authority system shutdown" or something like that and a countdown. I've managed to get rid of that window without it shutting down by typing "shutdown -a" in the command window, but I can't open ANYTHING on my computer. No internet, no files, NOTHING. I can't even shut it when it gets like that. After about 9 -12 time of me getting mad and disconnecting the power, it eventually doesn't come on and things run normally until the next time the computer is shut down again.

Anyway, I'm not sure if the two are related, but here's a logfile from Hijack this....any help is greatly appreciated!!
