Hello

I have setup every application to "ask me before checking for updates",

Even when I am not using any brower, email or any opther application, I notice that my lights on my modem are blinking quite fast... that is something is being downloded. It has been going on for quite sometime.

How do I find out what is being downloded (or uploaded)?

I use
toshiba laptop
window 7 prof
IE9
MS office 2010
Internet secuirity (antivirus, etc ...) from Bell
Thank you very much

And you have no browser open? And check for new email only infrequently?

You could try disconnecting from the modem and see if any program complains.

In Network Connections right click on your connection and select Status. Watch the Bytes sent and received to get an idea of the upload vs download and how much.

I took advantage of the student offer of Windows 7 and last night downloaded windows 7. I thought that because my laptop was 64 bit capable I could do a clean install to it from the download, which I now obviously realise was a mistake.

Does anyone know how I can change this download for a 32 bit version?

Thanks

Why can't you install 64bit? Have you tried and got an error?

After that, I noticed the windows start/tool bar had changed from the XP theme version to the classic version. Then i noticed that there was no network connectivity. When I tried to look up what was wrong, the properties, rename, and delete options have been disabled from the right-click menu.
I received a message that there was attempt to update registry but whatever was done was restored, then my PC reboot.
what I've done so far:
I tried to boot using the windows xp CD but nothing happens. Windows eventually boots up, but I don't get any options to run repair or anything.
Used CA anti-virus for scan and found nothing (did this again in safe mode and still found nothing)
I did a search to see if I could find what was modified, it shows that all user accounts including a Helpassist?? account have been updated in some form or fashion so i don't know what else to do

I see svchost.exe, services.exe, and system taking up 50% of CPU occasionally but not sure what to make of that.

to get the internet started I tried to turn on some network services but all failed due to 'timeout'

Please let me know any ideas, or how to get started on trying to fix this problem.

thanks,
homero
other pcs are connected to the internet just fine.

any ideas? anyone? a starting point?

i downloaded a thing i thought was safe but turns out my mcafee site advisor and mcafee software let a trojan get on my computer. it the TrojanDownloader:WIN32/zlob.ZWC. microsoft malicious software tool detects it but wont remove it. mcafee dont detect it at all.

Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Addition Tasks dialogue.
Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
Click Save to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.
Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

Hi cloud366, it sounds like you have done a repair install. When you pressed F10, did you choose Last Known Good Configuration from the boot menu?

Also, check in C:\Documents and Settings for a duplicate profile. It could be that your original profile has corrupted and Windows built you a new one.

All those type of "custom features" live in your local profile.

I just purchased a new HP desktop, INtel core 2 Quad processor, 64 bit performance with 8gb of ram, 1 Terrabyte hard drive. It came with Vista home premium 64 bit edition. I had previously purchased Vista Ultimate for a laptop that no longer works. When I downloaded Vista Ultimate I put in the 32 bit instead of the 64.....I am not able to do a restore to go back to the way I purchased it. I am not very computer savvy. Can anyone please help??? Thank you. And what would be the down fall for keeping the 32 bit installed (somone had told me I wouldn't be using the full capicity of the computer) Thanks again.

32bit will only see 4gigs of ram and usually only be able to use abt 3.3 its also a bit slower depending on how you use it. when changing from one OS format (32bit) to another (64bit) it has to be a clean install.

Now about restoring you may have a backup there and available but since you are 32 bit and it isnt you cant use it. If you were to reinstall vista 64 it probably be available

Hi everyone,

I have AVG Free 2013, which needed to be updated (i've since done this) and when closing Google Chrome, I got the message that avgui.exe was being downloaded. I did a little research, and most places seem to say it has to do with registry errors, but AVG had never done anything like that. Does anyone have any possible reasons for this? Thanks in advance.

Hi -The process known as AVG User Interface belongs to software AVG Internet Security by AVG Technologies CZ, s.r.o (www.freeavg.com).It is a Verisign signed file. The file is certified by a trustworthy company.File avgui.exe is not a Windows core file. The process can be uninstalled in the Control Panel.NOTE : avgui.exe is able to record inputs.Therefore the technical security rating is 10% dangerous.In the event of any problems with avgui.exe, you may want to do the following:Uninstall the associated program Go - Start > Control Panel > Add/Remove programs (Programs and Features in Vista and Windows7) > Delete > AVG 2013 or AVG 2011If this is bothering you, then you can replace AVG free with any of these Free Antivirus programs > >Microsoft Security Essentials (what I currently use)Avira AntiViravast! Thank You -

Just a little note, that IE8 came over with the latest updates from Microsoft and I downloaded it thinking that they improved it and ironed out all the previous problems with it, but they didn't! Big mistake!!!! I just recently went back to IE7 because there were too many websites that were causing me problems, plus my web printing was not working anymore for my HP printer and I found out that I could not print any of my cards in American Greetings!!!! I pay for that service and was very upset when I had a wedding to go to and could not print my card at the last min.!!!!! That was the staw that broke the camels back.....So, it was bye bye IE8, I am so disappointed in Microsoft for rushing this browser out to there knowing it has all these problems....Shame on you!!!!!

Did you try the sites in Compatibility View?

Hi. I have a mustek scanner to which I have had to download the software for (reformatted pc and now the original installation cd will not run as kids damaged it, BLESS).
On the website I downloaded them from it stated 'download all 5 files from web onto pc's hard disc under same directory'. I did not do this as I didn't know what it meant ( thought I would play and work it out but I'm just too stupid).
When I click on first file it starts and then asks me to insert next disc because they are not in this said directory,all being separate.
Can I now make/find or whatever this directory and move them into it and how or must I first make/find this directory and and download them again directly into this directory and how?
Please be gentle with explaination/terminology as as you have prob' gathered my pc skills are more than limited!!

Hi Steve1ramsey,
First of all, there is nothing such as "too stupid".
I would rather say that we all start somewhere.

If you remeber the name of the folder you created and put the different files in you only need to change the last part of the path.

Eg. You copy the 5 files in different folder, let's call them "Folder 1", "Folder 2", "Folder 3" etc.
Then you start the Setup from Folder 1.
Later it asks you for disk 2.
You can see the whole path to the Setup, like C:\driversfolder\Folder 1\
You just change "Folder 1" to "Folder 2" and then press OK.

That should do it. In other feel free to ask again
Good luck!

I bought Easy Hi Qrecorder program a few years ago. It worked fine. I had to re-download to a new computer as the other had crashed.

I use XP home edition.The Easy Hi Q recorder is reputable, from Roemer Software. I redownloaded it to the next computer which had been recently cleaned out of my son's user account and all his programs and files.

The Easy Hi Q downloads fine and installs. But when I click on the execute file to start it, I get "DWGTrueView 2010 wanting to install instead, which was part of an Autocad program my son had, for mapping. I can't seem to get rid of this mix up. Then of course it can't find the "source" file from that autocad program since it has been deleted for months. I also tried a clean disk and defragmented after deleting all my sons files.
I just want my Easy Hi Q recorder to work properly and open up.

I just tried an XP repair using the XP disk. Still no change. And it took all afternoon to do this.

Hello

I was cautious about just deleting the programs installed listed above as I've had damage done to my computer previously when this happened about a year ago. Additionally I don't know how to stop the message above reappearing. Also, as mentioned, I think I have additionally (undetected) malware downloaded.

I've run a Norton Scan but it has only detected tracking cookies and deleted these. Nothing else is detected, and the latest virus etc. definitions were downloaded prior to starting the scan.

I've added the logs requested in the "read this before posting" file as attachments as the previous post I attempted was deemed too long (i.e. over 300000 characters". Sorry - I hope this is ok, otherwise I can re-post them individually.

Hey all,

Sorry I'm new to the forum, hopefully this is the right place to put this.

I've just upgraded my Dell XPS 420 to windows 7-32bit Home Premium from vista and now any time I try and install a program from the internet (even things like iTunes or Firefox) I'm runnig into problems.

Once I've downloaded any set-up file I click on it and the user account asks if I want to allow the program access. Once I click yes it thinks about it for a bit and then nothing happens.

I've tried running them as administrator and in compatability mode. I've also tried unblocking them in the properties and even re-downloading and installing without any user account settings or firewall but nothing works.

I even thought it might be a bad install of Windows so I formatted my hard drive and tried again but still no luck.

Thanks
Nemo

What happens if I download and install an application TWICE? I am looking at a vendors suggestion. I am having a problem and the vendor suggests that I download and install WINDOWS LIVE MAIL. I think I have it installed already.
1-how can I tell if I have it already?

My OS is Windows 7

If you already have the software installed, when you run the install program it will probably have the option to "Repair" or "Modify".

Now, if you do download a newer version, there is a possibility you can have them both installed at the same time.

It's an intermittent problem and I have not yet seen a pattern.

I can work for 30 mins with no problem then phhht, the only way out is to hit the restart button on the case. Sometimes it's only minutes and then phhht.
All unsaved info is lost.

As an example I was replying to a post in this forum and it froze 4 times in the process.

After I have hit the restart button, most times it reboots normally but sometimes it says windows was unable to open and offers the safe mode.

There must be a conflict of some sort, has any body else had this problem?

Sounds like, when you installed Real Player you did not select [Custom] and check your file associations. Or did not use the Real Player option to always reset file associations if another program changes it.

Actually, before installing any ADDITIONAL player, you should check what files are associated whit your current player or players, and make sure the file association of the new player are not in conflict.

I always uncheck ANY association conflict in a new player, then change them later to the player I want to be default for the file.

According to a Google hit for MPGA, = Mpeg-1 Layer3 Audio Stream and that links to Winamp. Bet you have Winamp installed and it is over-riding the file association for mpg. You need to disassociate mpg from Winamp.

Okay, I did a dumb thing. I actually wanted to transfer my Carbonite account to a new computer. It is a laptop with a 40 Gig of HD. I realized (perhaps too late) that I selected "Reinstall" instead of Transfer My Account" and that my Carbonite files were larger than the laptop could handle. Well I stopped the downloading of files when the computer said that it had no more room. Later the computer screen went black (actually light gray) and the lights were lit up showing that it was reading or trying to read the files it had. It never completed it's boot up.

I tried to go in and reboot it into a Safe mode, but it won't let me. Says it can't go into the Safe Mode.

So, is there ANY way to save my hide and get this back?

Hi,

I downloaded Windows 7 RC 64 bit and I'd love to install in on a partition on my PC ... only ... how do I make a bootable image of it?

I've downloaded ISOBuster as suggested at the Microsoft site, I also have MagicISO free version and Nero 8 Ultra, none of these seems to want to work for me.

I did a Nero copy of the image which apparently has nothing to do with a bootable image ... duh.

The MagicISO seems like it will work if I purchase it ... first things first ... can I do it for free?

The ISOBuster seems absolutely impossible to decipher it's "Simplicity"?

Can Nero make a bootable image?

Can anyone pray tell me what I don't know. I'm really eager to hear it.

I just downgraded from Vista SP2 to Vista SP1 and by doing so, have somehow screwed up my downloads in both Firefox and IE8. Whenever I download in either one, the download results in a file that is 0 kb.

The strange thing is, Google Chrome somehow wasn't affected by this downgrade (if that's what caused this) and I can download files fine in that browser.

Can someone tell me what's going on here and how to fix this in IE8 and FF 3.5? I've already tried reinstalling FF and it didn't help at all.

Why did you downgrade form SP2 to SP1? Try reinstalling SP2.

Koushal,

I'm afraid that isn't very clear which is probably why you did not receive an answer. But it sounds like one of two things is possibly happening... either the file you have downloaded and are trying to open is being blocked by your anti-virus, or by your firewall. Or if by "open" you mean you are trying to install it, it could be you don't have admin rights to install, so it's a Windows UAC 'shield' you see.

To increase your chances of getting help, I would suggest taking a screenshot of the 'shield' if it sticks long enough, or of the msg you see right before the shield appears.

At first I thought I had downloaded an older version of Windows by mistake as even some of the icons looked different, but after speaking with a more computer-knowledgeable friend he claimed there aren't really any differences between XPs.. And also that when you reinstall XP all your drivers are lost - which probably explains why I have been trying in vain to connect to the internet to no avail. I don't think I have all the necessary installation CDs and am pretty clueless as to what to do. Should I just bring it to a professional and have them redownload everything for me? Thanks in advance.

It is easy to do yourself, no need for a professional.

From the next page it will ask you for your DELL service tag or model #. Once you pick that you will need to make sure it has the correct operating system listed (XP, VISTA, or Windows 7) and it will show all available drivers for your computer.

Alternatively, if you scrounge around some more, you may find a cd that should have been included in the original packaging that will contain all the drivers. It sounds like, at the very least, you are missing the video drivers. You can access the Device Manager using any of the methods below. The device manager will list all hardware installed and will show devices that are not installed properly with either a red X or a yellow !

* Click Start, click Run, and then type devmgmt.msc.
* Right-click My Computer, click Manage, and then click Device Manager.
* Right-click My Computer, click Properties, click the Hardware tab, and then click Device Manager.
* Type the following command at a command prompt: start devmgmt.msc

Still trying to resolve issues with IE8. Looking at downloaded controls I see three instances of Java Plug-in. All installed at the same time when I installed the latest version of Java.

Is this normal? If I remove one (and then two) will it remove all of them? Should I just disable two?

Then looking at "run without permissions" I see even more instances of Java Plug-n.

I do want to keep Java Plug-in but wonder why I have so many of the same?

Those three seam to be the same. If it was my computer I would remove all Java and get a fresh download of Java. I think this might answer all your questions.
What is Java Update?

I have downloaded a pdf from a website. I am trying to find out when the website owner uploaded this document. All I can see from Sumatra - document properties is a creation date of October 1 2015. I first  saw this document on the website on October 13 2015. I am trying to find when exactly the document was uploaded to the web. How would I do that? Is it in fact technically possible?

Thanks

Paul

A:How can I tell when a pdf I have downloaded from the web was uploaded to the web

You might try asking the website owner if they have a log from the website server showing when the file was uploaded.

Got a Skype call telling me Skype had found a problem with my computer and I needed to go to a website for more info (supposedly from Skype) -stupidly, I went to the website and was immediately infected with what I think is probably malware.
Neither Malwarebytes nor Avast! can find anything, but this warning keeps cropping up that I can't get out of unless I get out of my web browser.
I am a total beginner when it comes to the internal workings of a computer, so if anyone can help, please use basic English, not techspeak or I'm lost
Thanks Lynne

You can't download anything that will help. That PC will not run Mass Effect 2; it would need a faster processor, which would require a new motherboard, and more RAM, and a better graphics card, which would require a new motherboard and new power supply to meet the requirements. So you actually need a whole new computer, one built/designed for gaming.

Hi everyone,
New user to SevenForums.

For the longest time we did not have IE on our HP Smart Touch. We would use Firefox. Well, I needed to get IE 10 installed. I downloaded IE 10 from MS and installed. I made sure the Turn Windows Features On/Off from Control Panel had IE selected. However, after I went through the installation, IE 10 was not available. It is showing as an installed update to Windows but does not show in the Control Panel>Program and Features.

Does anyone have any ideas as to how I can get IE running? or how I can check what may be disabling it?

I do not know how IE was removed and unavailable to begin with.

Thanks for any help.

I downloaded a virus about a month and 1/2 ago. As soon as I opened the program I got a bsod " irqL_not_not_less_then_or_equal_to" then my laptop turned off. I tried to reformat before I tried to get rid of the virus. It did not work I had to restore using system Image. Obvious now that was the wrong thing to do. Well It got rid of the bsod's, but now I cannot run any kind of bootdisk because it will turn off about the middle of whatever I'm running. I've tried reformatting with win7 bootdisk, spotmau's bootdisk "Partition wipe, disk wipe", killdisk, hitachi disk fitness test disk. I've also ran scanners ; AVG anti-virus, Avira antivirus(which was what I was running and also scanned the program before opening it with avira.), Gmer, Sophos anti-rootkit, kaspersky anti virus scanner, mbr check, tdss killer, etc..... hah....just about everything I could download... And found nothing. So I've still got something screwing me up but none of these programs can find it... Possibly buried it after trying to format and using sytem image. Since it wont let me do anything with the boot disks is that in Would it be coming from MBR? Any help is very appriciated.

Hi,

That does sound MBR related. You need to try and scan prior to Windows loadup. To do that please follow these steps:

1. Download and burn the F-Secure ISO file to a CD using something like IMGBURN.
2. Turn on your PC, then enter the BIOS before it has a chance to load the Windows OS.
3. In the BIOS, make sure the CD/DVD drive is first in the boot sequence.
4. Insert the F-Secure bootable CD into the CD/DVD drive, and boot the PC.

The PC will now boot using Linux. F-Secure will then update its anti-malware database (ensure you leave your ethernet cable plugged into your router/modem). Follow the prompts to do a scan of your system - it may take quite some time.

Make a note of the malware that it finds, and post the names here as we may need to do some additional work depending on what it finds.

Note that if some critical system files are infected, F-Secure deletes them, and your system may not be bootable. In this case, you will need to do a clean Windows install, preferable after a secure wipe of the hard disk. Make sure any critical data is backed before scanning.

Regards,
Golden

Can I ask a really stupid question?
It's about locating downloaded files. Not the ones where I select save and then select a folder but the ones which don't offer that. For example right now Java is downloading but the files are not going where the existing Java files are (C:/Program Files/Java).
My question: how can I find out where files have downloaded to?

If you know the name of the file, even partial name. You can do a Search. If you only know the extension, for Java it is .jar or .idx, you can search using a wild card (search: *.jar) Java files are stored under C:\Documents and Settings\yourprofilename under .java, .javaws or jpl_cahce folders. Be sure you are showing Hidden Files and Folders.

Even though it appears you're having the same problem, please start a new thread when you have a new issue. It's very difficult to keep two problems straight and who's working on what in a single thread.
