  3. I D/Led and installed them 3 days ago, (thanks JSKY) it has made my boot times and other stuff like file transfers smother and faster
  4. Is your firewall allowing it to connect? it could be blocking it. It runs on all Win OS's, well all vers of XP including Vista,.
  5. Good one ! I now run Avast (free) as my virus checker plus Ad aware SE personal /spy bot and A2 squared, I have vista home prem as my OS had no probs with theses programs. Oh had Nortons as my virus checker till my pc's "date with death" with winfixer
  6. I have had the same problem with belkin tried updating the firmware /unplugging it / even used the reset button in the end I took it back and got a replacement one, told them its faulty, that fixed the problem
  7. Maybe macafee corrupted the restore point too ?
  8. Thank you for reply,s people After some research I worked out I had a virus/Trojan/mail ware "Win fixer" I didn't install it, however there are some people WHO are never going to use my Laptop again! I had running Norton's/ ad ware / spy bot and A2 squared plus UAC, the frools must have ignored it all So if anyone running vista and IE 7 has IE hang or lock up and or very slow starts, my advice check to see if "winfixer" has been installed Try this Tools needed for this fix: Vundo Fix VirtumundoBegone (if VundoFix does not work) Note: This infection is normally detectable by users receiving popups when they use the internet. Your antivirus program might also notify you via an alert that you have a Vundo Trojan on your computer. If you happen to have Hijackthis installed on your computer, you will be able to verify whether you have the Vundo infection, as there will be a matching O2, and O20 entry, with the same randomly named .dll file. In older infections the O2 entry normally contained the word "MSEvents". Please note you normally do not need Hijackthis installed to remove this infection, and the above details may only make sense to experts in this field, so don't panic. Symptons from a Hijackthis log: Below is an example of a Vundo infection, though there are many different filenames. O2 - BHO: (no name) - {EFCB1D95-FFF6-47BB-B6C9-61A523F04322} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\vturr.dll O20 - Winlogon Notify: vturr - C:\WINDOWS\system32\vturr.dll Revision History: 01/09/07 - Updated guide to reflect updates to the tools. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Removal Steps: Please print these instructions as they will be needed later when Internet access is not available. Save these instructions in word or notepad to the desktop where they can be easily found. Download Vundo Fix and save it to your desktop. When it has completed downloading, double-click VundoFix.exe to run it. Click the Scan for Vundo button. Once it's done scanning, click the Remove Vundo button. You will now receive a prompt asking if you want to remove the files, click the YES button. Once you click yes, your desktop will go blank as it starts removing Vundo. When completed, it will prompt that it will shutdown your computer, click the OK button. When the computer has shutdown, turn your computer back on. The WinFixer and Vundo infection should now be removed from your computer. If you are still having a problem then please perform the following steps. This step should only be used if the instructions in the previous steps did not remove the infection: Download VirtumundoBegone and save it to your desktop. Now reboot into Safe Mode. This can be done tapping the F8 key as soon as you start your computer You will be brought to a menu where you can choose to boot into safe mode. Select safe mode with networking using your arrow keys on the keyboard and then press enter. When you computer reaches the desktop make sure you log in as the same user which you had performed the previous steps, Once you are logged into safe mode, double-click VirtumundoBeGone.exe file you just downloaded and follow the instructions. Exit when it has finished, and reboot back to normal mode. The WinFixer and Vundo infection should now be removed from your computer. Conclusion If after attempting the instructions in this guide the infection is still present, then it is advised that you post your HijackThis log so one of our experts can help you remove the infection. It may be that you have a new variant that the tools cannot yet remove, or you have a stubborn infection. This is a self-help guide. Use at your own risk. Hope this might help others WW4 I found this info after I reistalled a virus free back up of my OS, so have not tried it
  9. Agree with TT Try this is a good one and free "http://www.pcdownloadworld.com/internet/security/zilla-data-nuker.htm"
  10. Does he run and use virus protection,spyware/mailware programs? It could be a corrupt file in Windows preventing the firewall from running, If he has the windows XP install CD, he could do a "Repare install" to replace or fix missing or corrupt files.
  11. Sounds like your audio drivers are screwed up,try deleting them then restart, XP should reinstall them. Or download the latest drivers for your sound card (put on disk or CD) then delete the drivers and re-install manually without rebooting If that does not work, do you have your XP install CD ?
  12. 7 gigs (damm) better buy and install 14 gigs if you want 7 to run with any speed
  13. Greetings to all been a while since I last posted, my old PC up and died awhile ago (may she rest in peace) Now have a new lady (PC) in my life a HP laptop Intel duo core 1866 with 1 gig ram, running vista home Prem. The question I have is ! has anyone noticed when using UAC that it slows your boot time , and at times windows Explorer often hangs or needs to restart ? since I disabled this everything seems to be faster. Interested in any feed back Regards WW4 Maybe that the more you add/remove from your system (from its installed factory setup ) the more UCA needs to scan and aprove what runs ?
  14. I have one too!! It is brighter when its moving ,,,if you let it sit for a few sec's ,,it gets dull,,but never stops . Its kind of like a "standby' mode . There's nothing wrong with it
  15. Ever tried to remove or delete a program that windows has locked or run on startup ,,and wont let you do it ??. Instead of going though eveything to shut it down try this Remove On Next Boot its FREE
