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 am unable to connect my new wireless lappy to my local (Talk Talk broadband) connection I use for my desktop.
Is Vista wireless compatible with Talk Talk broadband? Doesn't seem to be aware of that connection...

Also where do I obtain key 'security key or passphrase'

Im sure this is obvious but I need help as Im no good at this

thanks

A:Wireless Vista laptop connection to Talk Talk

How does your desktop connect, are you using a router or modem or what. We need more information to be able to help you.

What operating system does the desktop use and what security programs do you have installed on both your machines, it could be the firewall blocking things or it could be something else.

Post back with as much information as you can get about your machines and the way you connect to the internet and someone should be able to help you.

Hi,
I am a new member and I have a weird problem with Talk Talk. Moved into new flat and while we are waiting for our internet to be connected(?) our neighbour has told us we can use his Tallk Talk wifi which is unlimited and gave us the necessary code to connect. My wife's Xperia phone connected immediately and works fine on this connection. Her laptop (on Vista) however connected immediately but keeps coming up as Local Access only and won't open any web pages at all. My netbook (which is on XP) also connected immediately and show full connection at 54Mbps but also will not connect to any websites.
To further compound my frustration, both laptops will connect using my t MOBILE dongle and they work fine on that 7.2 Mbps connection. Also another neighbour has BT and both laptops will connect to the openzone from that (using my son'e log in as he is with BT) and open websites through that.
Does anyone have any ideas? I am not really confident enough to start deleting things and down loading new unless I know exactly what to do.

Thanks

I recently hit upon a bug that has been plaguing me for quite some time and I am sure that I am not the only one that has run into this. I tried to post the bug and its fix to the google help forum but couldn't the topic/thread section was no longer accepting new additions or replies (???).

Moving on. I found that if you have another program running like a movie player (VLC, MPC Star, media player etc... or iTunes, etc...) and try to make a call with google talk you won't hear anything (the other party gets the call though, as I learned, "WHY THE **** DO YOU RING 6 TIMES GRRR....") and have to try the call again and again an it's touch and go as to whether it ever works. Well close any other programs that are running that also output sound and the problem should go away.

Hope this helps someone searching for a possible answer, when I was I couldn't find anything that resembled this one. That is why I am posting it.

Having just purchased a new computer and set up my Talk Talk router, I am having serious issues setting up Outlook Express. I have spoken to Talk Talk for assistance having eventually got through to their 2nd line support but as I have a google mail E Mail address they were less than helpful. I have everything set up as per google mail help centre instructions other than incoming mail server (POP3) which is set as mail.talktalk.net. I can receive E Mails but not send. Everytime I attempt to send I receive the following error:

The connection to the server has failed. Account: 'pop.googlemail.com', Server: 'mail.talktalk.net', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): Yes, Socket Error: 10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E

I had AVG free edition installed by the manufacturer of the computer prior to receiving it. As a computing novice I am unsure if this a possible problem; could it be?

Help!!
 

A:Solved: Outlook Express and Talk Talk

AVG could be a potenial problem if it is scanning emails.
Some have problems right from the start others don't have
any for months and then suddenly do. Email scanning is
not necessary.
http://www.oehelp.com/OETips.aspx#3
http://thundercloud.net/infoave/tutorials/email-scanning/index.htm

At the very least turn the scanning off. The best
solution is to uninstall AVG and see if you can install
using the custom installation. At that point choose to
leave out the email scanning.

For the gmail account information.
Try these settings first and see if they work - no Talk Talk settings.
These are US settings, if you are in the UK or elsewhere,
check the gmail for your area to make sure these are the ports used.
It appears you used Port 25 and that is the cause of that error.

Has anyone suffered prolonged loss of connection using a talktalk wifi bband router? (ISP- aol) If so, what explanations were offered by aol?

I've got an aol engineer visiting Thurs.to examine connection loss (since last Weds). But I'm convinced the problem is with the router. But from the tone of the aol help man's questions I suspect he's already briefed his engineer to do his best to represent the problem as being either with my computer or positioning of router/filters/condition of wall-sockets - usual getouts.

The talktalk router is neww, issued Feb 12, after my original router, speedtouch, started suffering idle timeouts every day.

Can anyone advise on the most often-used excuses given my wifi engineers so I can counter them and convince the engineer to do an unbaised examination? Or could I be wrong and there really is a technical problem with my line or connections. Before the engr comes I want to be prepared to fend off ******** and recognize genuine cause-suggestions.

Any replies appreciated : but I have to use comp at local library so I shan't be able to respond promptly.
 

A:Talk Talk router, lost connection

Without further detail, it is really impossible to give an opinion.
If you have another computer - with wireless, or by using a wireless usb try that and if that does not lose the signal, it is a fair bet it something with the setup on this computer - is it not.

Sometimes changing the wireless channel may improve the result.
If some other local equipment is using the same channel that could cause the loss of signal.

I am sure it is best to wait until the engineer has been seen as it only 2 days or so
I've got an aol engineer visiting ThursClick to expand...

and then if you still have problems, and he has checked the broadband service to your property, please post back

Hi

I have setup a Speedtouch Wireless Router 585 for my sister...
The Talk Talk connection works fine on her modem, but when we try the router
it says its connected and has IP address and DNS Server address's but no internet
comes through, the lights are green indicating all is fine and conectivity test says all is OK
BUT it supposed to have...

DSL
ATM
Ethernet
PPP
IP
Internet

but Ethernet is completely missing from the line up... the manual shows what a perfect running conection should be and its all ok except for the Ethernet entry missing completley?

The laptop connects @ 100Mbps no probs via Ethernet and we can access the router settings via ethernet so that indicates that there isnt any problem with the LAN connection

when she trys to access the internet the internet light flashes to indicate activity but nothing happens..

Pings all fail...

what could be the problem?

we have the right username and password in and if any of the config were incorrect it wouldnt connect at all would it?

I have it set as so...
PPPoA (VCMUX or VCBASED)

are these correct?

I'm at a friends house and they were explaining how she had got rid of her antivirus software because of this thing called Talk Talk HomeGuard. Antivirus software is a very importent thing on a computer and I knew that this was a BAD idea. I also read on the TalkTalk faq that:

_________________________________________________________________Will Virus Alerts replace the need for Anti-Virus software?

No, they complement each other. Virus Alerts extends protection to devices unable to use traditional Anti-Virus software as they access websites. i.e. smartphones or games consoles.

Could anybody recomend a good free antivirus untill she gets a paid one?

OK so awhile ago my Pipex account swapped to talk talk since then I was getting disconnect anywhere from every 5 minutes to an hour. I solved this problem buy swapping from a Speedtouch 330 to a netgear N300 DNG2200.

now my connection is perfectly stable I haven't had a disconnect since I swapped which has been a very long time. However since the change my down speed has gone from somewhere around 250kb/s to 120kb/s (so says steam). I think this has something to do with the 330 using G DMT rather then ADSL, but tbh I don't really know. so is there anyway I can reclaim my lost speed I know the line is capable off? with going back to the frustration of repeated disconnects (i had to restart computer on every disconnect because it wouldnt redial otherwise )

Hi
For better or worse TakTalk is my ISP. They are offering a free complete security package called HomeSafe.
I have used AVG free for many years with no problems of which I am aware. For some time I used Zone alarm firewall but a couple of years ago I switched to The Microsoft firewall. Again I have not been aware of any problems.
Would it be advantageous to switch to HomeSafe or am I better off staying with the protection which has served me well?
Your views would be appreciated.

I've been using Google Talk for months now, and everything was going so smoothly and well that I decided to make it my primary and sole means of voice communication. Then, about 2 weeks ago, it just broke.

Suddenly I could no longer make touch tones, and no one could hear me talking when I called them.

I googled like mad, posted on the google help forums, and there is NO support out there to fix this.

It was a universal problem happening in Chrome, Rockmelt, Firefox and Internet Explorer (the latter of which I don't even use, but tried just in case.)

Then, just as soon as it happened, it seemed to 'fix itself.'

But now it's back again. I have no idea what to do to fix this, and I'm at my wit's end! What possible issue could be effecting every single browser to make this happen?

A few facts:
Using Windows 7 Home Premium
The system is definitely utilizing the right microphone, which works
Skype works perfectly, including tones

I just bought this laptop about 10 days ago to use specifically for a writing project separate from my other work laptop. It has Windows 7. It had Google Chrome installed (or maybe my brother installed it upon taking it out of the box.) I have
used IE as my browser on this laptop once or twice, but mostly use Google Chrome. I downloaded some genealogy software I just bought today about an hour or so ago (Family Tree Maker 2012) and noticed that it would not connect to the internet to register- it
kept saying "No internet connection". After trying a few things (allowing the program access through Windows Firewall, checking to make sure that "proxy server" tab was not checked in Internet Settings, disabling some Bing Maps and Windows

Explorer...no dice. I've restarted several times. Nothing is working. Any suggestions?
My husband thinks i should uninstall Chrome, which he guesses is causing all the trouble with both IE and the Family Tree software. But I'm afraid that if I uninstall Chrome and it doesnt work, i wont be able to get back on the internet since I can presently

SOLUTION: In typical techie fashion as soon as i ask for help I solve the problem. I did crtl + r -> ncpa.cpl -> properties -> configure -> advanced -> network access -> Type in the unique address seen for the network adapter when ipconfig is run, type it without dashes. This worked immediately.

My PC is Windows 8.1 and it hasn't had internet issues before. Last night it stopped connecting to the internet. This morning is has been the same. Wireless connections are working fine but my desktop doesn't have a wireless card so i need to fix the wired issue with it.

I've tried the ethernet cable on other devices and they work, so i think it must be PC settings. I PC restored to last night 7pm and it didn't fix it. I've tried ipconfig /release and /renew and it didn't work. I've tried uninstalling AVG and turning off firewalls. I still am getting the yellow triangle with "no internet access"

Lets take a peek at your network environment:

First:

Power Cycle everything . . Turn off the Modem, router and all pc's . . turn on the Modem and wait a few minutes for the lights to stabilize . . then turn on the router, then one pc at a time. See if you connect to the internet.

Then:

Remove all the stored wireless network profiles and search for the network again.

How to Remove Stored Wireless Network Profiles for XP, Vista, and Windows 7

Then: check your browser's settings, remove any proxy settings if found here's how.

Then:

with the pc connected to the router, Click on Start . . Run . . type CMD

At the > prompt type or copy and paste the following command:

ipconfig/all > 0 & notepad 0

and press enter.

Come back here and Paste the results in a message.

The problem appeared to start when I installed an update for Firefox, and at the time I had an old version of IE which worked fine, although the updated Firefox did not display any pages, I decided to update to IE8, because the version I had installed was pretty ancient, after which IE also began to display this problem.

I have fiddled with my firewall settings, to no avail.

Incidentally I am now using an old version of MSN explorer, which works to display webpages (which is how I am managing to post this!) I am guessing it is something to do with the updates, although I'm not an expert.

Any clues as to what I can do to fix it (I don't want to be stuck with this awful MSN browser!)

Thanks in advance
Laurens

A:Internet connection working fine, browsers can't connect to any sites.

Try opening a command window (type cmd into yor run box and click ok)
Then type 'netsh winsock reset' and hit enter.
You should get a message 'successfully reset winsock catalogue' or similar.
then restart your computer

I lost the charging cable for my laptop and I have no idea what kind it is other than Pavilion. I have looked at every single article that tells you how to find the serial number and I still cannot find it and nothing lets you ask anything unless you have all this information! I need to know what type of cable to order so I can start using it again! At this point after spending an hour researching, I'm just about to order one and hope it's right.

A:How do I talk to someone?!

Remove the battery  and look inside the battery bay. Can you describe the laptop? Screen size, how old? Maybe a picture? Help us help you.

hi...i am trying to use the talk function on aim but i keep getting this message..

Toggling the 'Use alternate Internet Address' checkbox in Talk preferences may help.

Hiya

Are you using a proxy? If not, the person you're contacting may.

This is where to look:

Tools | Internet Options. Connections tab. Settings. IS Use a Proxy... ticked?

Does this happen with all users, or just on in particular?

I was using the Dv7 doing 3D modeling with 2 models at the same time on my screen. I checked the temps at the time....87 Degrees Celegrade!!! I was like no way this is happening. I am assuming that this is bad...but does anyone have any suggestions on how to possibly cool this down or is it acceptable at times to have this happen when I am modeling? I need to get some canned air to clean it out some so that may make a difference.

Thanks in advance.

As it stands now, I have no desire to purchase windows 7. I have purchased 2 Vista PCs since its release, 1 32 bit and 1 64 bit and have had problems with neither, in fact I much prefer vista over XP. I just bought a gaming rig in June (I was unaware of windows 7 and the cutoff date for free upgrade). And I am not finding any reason to spend $120 on the upgrade. What makes windows 7 better than vista? Because I find very few things that would make it worth the upgrade.

A:Talk me into it

Well dude it's whatever you make it out to be. If you've tested it before, it's really nice, to be honest. You can shuffle pictures as a slideshow(which makes your background change to your favorite pictures) it's faster than Vista, and on top of that, it's looks nice as well as it performs.

But don't take my word for it. /laugh

Can anyone out there please try and help me get rid of 3 pop up messages I get following my stupidity to install the trial version of Lan Talk.net.

I installed this trial application, then found it does not come with an un-install util. I used the Remove Programs found in XP. This seemed to go OK. Now I live with the frustration of having the following 3 pop up messages on boot up:
1) Cant load Lan Talk Skins file
2) Cant load Lan Talk Language file
3) Cannot initialize Lan Talk
...all this after an uninstall and clean out of my registry.

Can some one please advise how to fix this. The support at Cezeo jsut say install and then uninstall...yes done that 3 times with no luck. Have they left some sort of spy-ware on my machine..

My Lexmark Z65 printer can never find my pc when I bootup in the morning. If I unplug the usb cable and plub it back in, it's ok and prints great. I'm working with Win2k.

I have 2 basic USB ports as part of the Abit motherboard (Abit KX-333) that I installed when building this computer. On the motherboard there is the option for attaching a plug that adds 2 more USB ports in the back which I have done.

Within the Device Manage I have this listed in this order:
Universal Serial Bus controllers

Generic USB Hub = Generic USB Hub
USB Composite Device = Standard USB Host Controller (Keyboard)
USB Root Hub = Standard USB Host Controller
USB Root Hub = Standard USB Host Controller
VIA USB Universal Host Controller = VIA Technologies
VIA USB Universal Host Controller = VIA Technologies

Only the USB Composite Device has "Keyboard" listed as what it goes to. Nothing else is listed as working with a specific USB device, and beside the Lexmark printer I have my mouse and scanner using USB ports.

Included with this printer is a flashcard reader as a separate "device". On my taskbar I have 2 devices working, the printer and the card reader. Neither one is recognized until I unplug and replug the usb cable.
Thanks!

with all the talk of 3D coming I was wondering if a monitor I came into (free) a Sony Trinitron CPD-G520 ~ 21" flat screen would be worth while trying to fix? I flicked emails to "Sony's qualified repairer" who gave me a rough quote (unseen - it's too big for me to carry on public transport 30kg/66lb2oz) $450 for one part OR $45 for the other. The reason for raising the query is that council has banned 'ewaste' and to dispose it will cost $65 so that makes the $45 option good value and also gives cudos for recycling. I described the problem as horizontal rain see attached jpg(s) (Multiscan & Multiscan2). I believe the parts the techie was referring to are the $450 ?modulator? (jpg. SonyMultiScanTrinitron CRT) and the $45 ?tube? (jpg. SonyMultiScanTrinitron G520).

Resolution is; Horizontal 2048 dots Vertical 1536 lines
Input is; Analog RGB or SYNC signal
Power consumption is; 135W

There are no other Self diagnostic symptoms ie. normal functions present
So assuming this is correct (self diagnostics) please any ideas where I could purchase this part?

-Awesome Metro start screen. Provided Micosoft add support for traditional Context Menus it will be fit for desktop use.
-Cool, small, free, apps. There is potential here. We just want everything too early, that's why we are early adopters.
-Clean, usable PC Settings section. Provided Microsoft move the rest of the stuff there, it will be quite awesome.
-Clean, small and fast desktop theme. Works great under Remote Desktop. Now, if we could only have Aero as an option for local sessions and the light theme for RDC sessions or as a fallback theme when Aero needs to be off.
-Real kernel. Finally.
-Fast boot up that will stay fast. That's a big pro for me.
-Management of startup items. Finally.
-Improved Task Manager. Was about time.
-Standards for app quality and performance, even for the desktop. Hurts, but had to be done.
-Improved security. Almost great, if it wasn't for the fact 99% of it is dedicated to DRM instead of user protection.
-Improved RDC experience. I am literally jumping for joy, this thing flies under RDC and I use RDC all the time.

Basically, Windows 8 is very short of being a total success, if it wasn't for so much driver and software incompatibilities, and this forced Tablet-Desktop experience and split-personality, which is unforgivable, provided the fixes for this can be delivered with a simple Windows Update very fast if Microsoft decide to do so.

A:Everything Sucks. Let's Talk About What Does Not.

-Better compatibility mode, for older programs to work properly and even 16bit color checkbox (16 bit color resolutions were removed from the graphics list => who uses those nowadays anyway)

I have an ASUS Xonar DX Sound Card, Creative Speakers with subwoofer and a Plantronics Headset. I am running Windows Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 1. My computer also has RealTek HD Audio sound software.

I can listen on Ventrillo just fine, but when I push the button I've selected for push-to-talk, and try to talk on Vent, my sound icon lights up so everyone knows I am trying to talk, but everyone always says they cannot hear a sound from me.

I've tried running Ventrillo both in, and out of, administrator mode. I've triple checked and then triple checked again to make sure my microphone is not muted. I've tried plugging a regular vanilla microphone into my sound card without using the Plantronics Headset. I've tried using the headset alone without the speakers to listen. Everything is the same. I hear everyone just fine, and when I try to talk, they all see the icon light up that shows I am trying to talk, but they all say they don't hear me say anything.

Any other information you need on my hardware/software setup please ask and I will provide.

I use Ventrillo for World of Warcraft, it is absolutely mandatory for endgame content, and I am being told more and more impatiently that either I get it fixed or I will be permanently excluded from endgame content.

Thanks,

Sun's Cobalt Linux Servers Open to Attack


Today, Sun and CERT announced that many of Sun's Cobalt RaQ 4 Linux servers can be completely taken over by a local user or via the Internet. Ironically, the vulnerability is only present if the vendor's optional "Security Hardening Package" is installed. The package is quite popular and is installed on a large percentage of these servers.

The vulnerability is caused by a flaw in the input validation of a CGI (common gateway interface) script. The script is intended to allow remote administration of the server via a Web browser.

Sun reports that, at present, there's no workaround for the hole. The only way to close it is to remove the Security Hardening Package, which provides protection against (among other things) buffer overflows and port scanning. The protection is lost when the package is removed.
