Q: Warning! Visiting this site may harm your computer!

after i restarted my computer everything looked to be fine until i went on to craigslist and all of the sudden this malwareweblink.com (http://malwareweblist.com/block.php?id=2036-2&url=http://vancouver.en.craigslist.org/forums/?act=Q&ID=144014843)

took over the screen and says my computer is at risk and it gives me two options

continue unprotected or get security software

i am running avg for firwall spyware and antivirus. this doesnt only happen with only craigslist it happens with almost every website i go to. not every time either but 50% of the time.

if i click continue unprotected it goes back to the website i was previously at but then pops up again. so i tried to click get security software and it takes me to a website to purchase antivir antivirus (http://malwareweblist.com/1/?id=2036-2)

so i belive this is a virus or somthing so if anyone can help me with this problem would be great thank you

please see the attachments as well

Hi,

I need your help. My website "http://www.how-to-manifest-your-desires.com/" is listed by Google as a dangerous site that may harm your computer. The problem is that I don't know how to fix the problem. I have looked through the code to see any suspicious code but cannot see anything suspicious.

I'd appreciate if someone perhaps has experience with this sort of thing. See warning message below!

Thanks,
Jimmy

I have an infected laptop running XP Pro SP3. It had Spyware Protect 2009 on it but I was able to stop the sysguard.exe process and delete sysguard.exe from the Windows subdirectory and from the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\....\Run registry hive. There is still at least one other major problem. IE 7 is redirected to display "internet explorer warning visiting this web site may harm your computer" most of the time. I can get to google sometimes and even search something but when I try to follow a link - I get the redirection message. It also prevents me from running a system restore and most of the scanning software such as malwarebytes, SDfix and several others. I was able to run HijackThis but when I tried to post the report, it redirected me again so I saved the log file to a thumbdrive and logged onto an uninfected computer to post this.

I'm attaching the log file.

Im with BT Broadband at the moment, earlier today there was a new update, im guessing for the router, so i downloaded it.

Since then i have been getting the above warning on certain sites i try to enter which i have been on before with no problems (for instance, the BBC website).

Is this just coincidence or did the update do this?
... and if so, does anyone know how i got about un-installing the update?

All Google searches from around 8:30 to 9:30AM Central Time USA - had the link:
"This site may harm your computer"
I was at first wondering if all sites caught malware.
But thinking more likely - Google security - was adjusted too tightly.

Anyone else see this?
I went to a second computer - to verify that the same issue existed.
It did - so was not malware on a particular computer.

At aprox. 9:40 AM CST - the "This site may harm your computer" link had been removed.

Dear TSG Forums, I'm wondering if someone could help me.

As of today I seem to have contracted some form of re-direct virus. I was googling for a live journal blog and when clicking a google result I was redirected to a page with the title 'Malware Warning'. The page then went on to read: 'Visiting this website may damage your computer!' it then advised me to return to my previous or visit StopBadware.org. I did neither and closed the page.

However, now it seem that whatever I search for with Google generates the same page including site well known to me such as Facebook and Hotmail.

Malwarebytes has found nothing and beyond this I'm stumped. I'm running Firefox, I've not tried using Google in IE as it just crashes on this computer. Other search engines seem to be working fine.

Any help would be really gratefully received! Thanks for reading.

Hello HaileyBailey,

Welcome to TSG,

Go to the link below to learn what StopBadware.org is. In particular you will see this line:
On January 31, 2009, all of Google's results (including google.com and stopbadware.org) were briefly flagged as malware for almost 40 minutes.Click to expand...

I think that is what happen to you.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/StopBadware.org

Now

I notice your Java is out of date, older versions are vunerable to attack.

Please download JavaRa to your desktop and unzip it to its own folder

Run JavaRa.exe, pick the language of your choice and click Select. Then click Remove Older Versions.
Accept any prompts.
Open JavaRa.exe again and select Search For Updates.
Select Update Using Sun Java's Website then click Search and click on the Open Webpage button. Download and install the latest Java Runtime Environment (JRE) version for your computer.
It might be worth just having a look at things to check nothing is there.

Next

Please download random's system information tool (RSIT) by random/random from here.
It is important that is saved to your desktop.

Hello.

I've not had this happen to me before. On visiting "RosariansCorner" I receive the attached message.

I can get to the site through the cached sites in Google but can't navigate the actual site.

Have you come across this before. Other sites are fine. I'm using Firefox and Windows XP.

Thank you.

Hello,

I am running a P4 Q6600 with Windows XP SP2. I use Firefox, just updated to 12, and have AVG 2012 loaded
(unfortunately, it lists my current AVG Safe Search as incompatible with Firefox 12).
I went to a legitimate business website, and apparently the website has been recently hijacked because
instead of the expected content (that was in the Google cache), an illegitimate-appearing virus warning
appeared in the browser window. I closed the window, but found thereafter that when visiting google.com with Firefox,
Firefox always said it was "Connecting to 213.174.137.82...". This is my main symptom. I didn't observe
this on other intact computers, but I found others on BleepingComputer that had infections associated
with this address (such as http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic445802.html, but with slightly different
symptoms -- Google seems to work okay for many searches in my case). I don't perceive significant slowing,
but strangely after running DDS and GMER for a while, my mouse stopped working (I plugged in another one
and it worked for a short while but also stopped) and I started getting delayed write errors. Upon rebooting, the computer
seems to work okay but it still displays the "Connecting to 213.174.137.82..." message with Firefox browsing google.com.

I visited the business website that seemed to initiate the problems again but on a Linux computer, and
I found the URL redirected to a suspicious-appearing .ru address, wher... Read more

Sleep, stand by or hibernate?

First of all - I have a laptop. I dont quite get the difference between all three. What I normally do is, when I want to go for a few hours, I just close my laptop, and thats it. Then after I get home I open it again to be used. Overnight, though, I just simply shut it down.

Question is, what I did above - is it called standby or sleep?

Forgetting my method above, what is the best way that will do minimum harm to my computer yet saves most energy? Is it sleep standby or hibernate?
Thank you Bleepingcomputer people

A:Which one will do minimum harm to my computer

Sleep is a power-saving state that allows a computer to quickly resume full-power operation (typically within several seconds) when you want to start working again. Putting your computer into the sleep state is like pausing a DVD player?the computer immediately stops what it?s doing and is ready to start again when you want to resume working.

Hibernation is a power-saving state designed primarily for laptops. While sleep puts your work and settings in memory and draws a small amount of power, hibernation puts your open documents and programs on your hard disk, and then turns off your computer. Of all the power-saving states in Windows, hibernation uses the least amount of power. On a laptop, use hibernation when you know that you won't use your laptop for an extended period and won't have an opportunity to charge the battery during that time.

Hybrid sleep is designed primarily for desktop computers. Hybrid sleep is a combination of sleep and hibernate?it puts any open documents and programs in memory and on your hard disk, and then puts your computer into a low-power state so that you can quickly resume your work. That way, if a power failure occurs, Windows can restore your work from your hard disk. When hybrid sleep is turned on, putting your computer into sleep automatically puts your computer into hybrid sleep. Hybrid sleep is typically turned on by default on desktop computers.

That is from Microsoft.com. Standby is the hybrid sleep mode. On a Windows based co... Read more

A while back, I had to take my computer to my univeristy's ResNet to get it fixed because I couldn't gain access to it because I thought someone hacked into it and changed my password (I was wrong). When I got my computer back, it had a bunch of different anti-virus softwares on it, one of which was ComboFix. I am unsure about this program. What exactly does it do, and does it pose any danger to my computer? I'm worried that when I connect to my external hard drives, all my data will be lost on them. Is this possible?Edit: Moved topic from General Security to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

A:What is ComboFix and can it do any harm to my computer

ComboFix is a powerful tool intended by its creator to be "used under the guidance and supervision of an expert", NOT for general public or personal use. As such, no one should be using Combofix unless instructed to do so by a Malware Removal Expert who can interpret the logs. Please read Combofix's Disclaimer.

A:adw cleaner will harm my computer

Certain embedded files that are part of legitimate programs and specialized fix tools (like AdwCleaner), may at times be detected by some anti-virus and anti-malware scanners as suspicious, a Risk Tool, Hacking Tool, Potentially Unwanted Program, a possible threat or even Malware (virus/trojan) when that is not the case. This occurs for a variety of reasons to include the tool's compiler, the files it uses, whether files are compressed or packed, what behavior (routines, scripts, etc) it performs, any registry strings it may contain and the type of security engine that was used during the scan. Other legitimate files which may be obfuscated, encrypted or password protected in order to conceal itself so they do not allow access for scanning but often trigger alerts by anti-virus software.When flagged by an anti-virus or security scanner, it's because the program includes features, behavior or files that appear suspicious or which can potentially be used for malicious purposes. Compressed and packed files in particular are often flagged as suspicious by security software because they have difficulty reading what is inside them. These detections do not necessarily mean the file is malicious or a bad program. It means it has the potential for being misused by others or that it was simply detected as suspicious or a threat due to the security program's heuristic analysis engine which provides the ability to detect possible new variants of malware.

This is bugging me for a whole day. I am developing a PHP web application in Apache server and it seems to work well with all major browsers even IE8. The only problem is with IE9. Basically my applicatoin lets users download a 30 day trial which is an exe file. At the download prompt, the dialog says "This type of file could harm your computer".
Some websites like red-gate.com and microsoft.com allows downloading of exe files but without this warning in IE9. What am I missing here?? I have some possible causes for this problem:
1.) Is this specific only to Apache hosted websites? Its because red-gate and microsoft.com are hosted in IIS/ASP.NET platform.
2.) The exe file is not digitally signed?
3.) Or this is simply a bug in IE9?
I would like the message "This type of file could harm your computer" to be completely remove when users are downloading the exe files using IE9. Any thoughts? I believe this thread would be very helpful to other developers encountering this problem. Thank you!

I know that having multiple antivirus programs can harm your computer because of RAM being eaten up, false positives, and all thatbad stuff, but I mean like Spybot Search and Destroy and Malwarebytes. Also, if it is harmful to keep programs like DDS, GMER, and ComboFix without using them (I have ComboFix saved to the desktop just in case I need it, I have NOT used it nor intend on using it unless instructed to by someone trained in its use)

A:Can multiple Anti-malware programs harm your computer?

Hello, no they will not physically harm the pC. Use only One AV,Firewall and Antimalware actively. keep the rest for on demans scanning. They need to be updated prior to a scan.Remove Vundofix it is outdated. MBam is batter than that. Remove DDS, GMER, and ComboFix. These tools should be downloaded fresh at each use. No one should be using ComboFix unless specifically instructed to do so by a Malware Removal Expert who can interpret the logs. It is a powerful tool intended by its creator to be "used under the guidance and supervision of an expert. Using this tool incorrectly could lead to disastrous problems with your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again.

Hi, I have a theoretical question.
If someone shares with me an infected file though email or online cloud like Google Drive for instance, or if someone uploads an infected file to Google Drive. Can opening the infected file from Google Drive such as a video or music infect the computer that it's being played on even though it's not being downloaded, just opened and run directly from the online cloud service?

Thank you to whomever can answer me, I appreciate it.

Ok, first off let me just say that this all began with a stupid mistake on my part. I learned my mistake and any laughing at my current situation is fine since I completely deserve it.

The story starts with me trying to do a favor for my mom. She had a game she wanted to install and she wanted my help. I found out that she didnt have the CD-key on her and I did something in which started everything. I downloaded a key-gen off the net. Now, this was before I heard of "safe" DL sites such as (edit by Done_Fishin - ILLEGAL CONTENT), so needless to say the file in which I got wasnt the friendliest of sorts.

It wasnt a very active virus if thats what it was. (I still havent found out what it was, but ill get to that later.) The only thing it seemed to do was when I started up an internet browser, it took a good 30 seconds to load the main page where it used to take less than 1 second. Then after lets say 2 minutes of browsing, the next page took another 30 seconds.

Thats fine I thought to myself, I could live with this. But what really got me was that when I went to a streaming website and tried to watch a video "IE: Youtube, Veoh, Googlevid" It would be fine for a while, then my browser would freeze, id have to close it, then when I tried to start up the browser again, it wouldnt. Id get the little loady icon on my cursor, then it would go away and nothing would happen.

Thats what bothered me. So I tried using what Anti-virus I had (Avast) but it c... Read more

A:Accidently caused harm on my computer. Tried to fix it, wound gets infected.

Hi & Welcome .. It's a hard lesson but one that will be well learnt .. PAY for software that you want to use .. if you don't have the key , DON'T download keygens .. 99.9% are holding a hidden payload ..

We don't support or condone the use of pirated software NOR the advertising of sites that someone believes is safe .. there is NO such thing as a free lunch .. so you'll note that I have erased those from your message ..

You need help from the security people over at hijackthis, so take a wander over there, read the rules, follow the 5 steps and then make a new post. DO NOT start advertising or talking about sites, you will never get any help.

Keep your post to the point, tell them what you have done and then sit back & be patient. Sometimes it takes a few days for them to get around to someones post. If you haven't heard anything from a TEAM member after 3 or 4 days then add a new post to your thread with JUST the word BUMP in it but delay as long as possible .. those guys are very busy and respond to unanswered posts first .. they can see what posts have been answered by looking at the post count and NOT looking at the post .. any subsequent post to the thread will boost the post count.

Good Luck

A recent contact of mine whom I've contracted to do some web design for me has linked me several example sites / templates that he created.  However, I get an odd feeling when I visit these pages as if there's something just slightly off about them.  I fear that just by visiting them I've put my computer at risk.  Could I have an experienced user look them over safely to see if anything fishy is on them?
I will provide the website URL in a PM to experienced Bleeping Computer specialists only so no one accidentally clicks on them that shouldn't.

Hi all. Ive been battling this issue for a few days now. whenever i visit sites such as myspace or espn.com, when im either searching around on the sites my computer will lock up. i can hear it processing information as if it were getting sent massive amounts of information, yet when i check the sites on another computer in my house i dont have these issues. i tried disabling javascript and it worked for part of the problem, but when i started to search the website further, i encountered the issue again. This occurs with both internet explorer and firefox, and my flashplayer and windows media player are both updated. ive searched my computer with spybot and adaware.

A:Computer locking up when visiting certain sites

Try reseting you security permissions. Goto tool > internet options > security tab. Click on default level, then set it to low hit apply, then move it right back to medium and hit apply. This will put it back to microsoft recommended settings. let us know if that works.

So today I logged on to wikipedia only to see the sopa blackout message. within two minutes my firewalls detected numerous incoming and outgoing connections. then my desktop froze followed by all commands. I then turned my computer off. waited. then turned it back on. after going to the black xp screen it reboots to the "we apologize for the inconveinice but windows.." last known config-reboots to the we apologize screen. start normal-same thing. safe mode works. I ran malwarebytes in safe mode and it found the following threats:
trojan.winlock
pup.removeWGA
exploit.drop.7

after scan and necessary reboot, my computer gets caught in the restart loop with no way to start windows except choosing safemode or safemode with networking. and the threats keep reappearing. they will not go away!

Over the last few days, any time I try to visit youtube my computer completely freezes.  The mouse doesn't move, I can't push ctrl+alt+del, nothing at all works.  The screen just freezes while the page is loading.  The computer doesn't seem to be busy working when it freezes.  It seems to just stop completely.  I do not have this problem with any other websites.  I have scanned for viruses with Spybot and Malwarebytes.  I downloaded Ccleaner and used that too, as I thought it might be some sort of registry error.  No issues have been found.  There are no other sypmtoms of problems with the computer.  It is not running slowly.  Everything seems normal except for youtube. 
 
I am using Firefox 20.0..1  There are no strange add ons or toolbars that I use.  I use Windows 7.  Any ideas what might be causing the problem?

A:Visiting youtube causes computer to freeze completely

I did a little more experimenting, and discovered that the problem only seems to be when using firefox.  Chrome and Internet explorer load the page.  I did, however notice that the Samsung ad at the top of youtube had an error loading.  The problem with Firefox seems to occur at the moment the Samsung ad finishes loading.  Perhaps it is related specifically to that.

Hi all,

First post bc I can't find a good answer to this question anywhere.

I play guitar and as such, I frequently visit www.ultimate-guitar.com. For the past few months, whenever I visit the site, there is a good chance of my computer spontaneously just shutting down. It doesn't happen every time, but it happens a good portion of the time that I go to the site, and it only ever happens on that site.

I'm currently running 64-bit Vista Home Premium. This happens on both Chrome and Firefox.

Hi

I visited a web site last night to check if the address had already been taken.

When I arrived at the site I got a pop-up saying I had been hacked and then got a warning from Avira in the mozilla cache folder. I selected the option to deny access.

The offending site's address: hxxp://nexus.webs.com (if I am not allowed to post the address, I'll edit the post) - is there a way for someone here to please tell me what exactly the website did to my computer?

Did it install a keylogger on my computer? I'm on a different computer at the moment just to be safe.

Just a short note on the domain HIJACK-THIS.NET: this is not mine! It has been registered by XoftSpy (who are also on the Rogue Antispyware List on SpywareWarrior.com) and they are luring people into downloading their software believing it is HijackThis. Also, they have registered a few AdWords at Google leading to the same result. I have contacted them about this and received no reply (how surprising). Google can't do much about it since there is no copyright being breached. We'll see where this goes.
In the meantime, if you want to download any of my programs, the official domain is and always will be www.merijn.org.

Hi,

I recently had a wordpress blog set up as my website for my coaching business. When I went to use it, 2 different people (that told me anyway-who knows how much other traffic didn't stop or tell me) emailed me that they got virus warnings about my website. I have Norton on my computer and it hasn't alerted me to anything in my files. About that time, it expired, I had to remove it and then download the new one. I put Norton 360 on it.

My scans don't show anything.

Does that mean that it is on the server that hosts my website? It has halted my business and marketing because I don't know if my site is harmful.

One of the guys sent me screenshots that I attached to you in a Word doc. I don't see it now but I hope it is attached.

my computer.

How dont want such intructions by Google.

How can I trun them off forever (in IntExp 9)?

A:Disable prompt "this webpage can harm your computer"?

That is a safeguard against you becoming infected and pops up because the URL has been Black Listed.

A workaround is to find another download site for the program - if they are the sites that produce this alert - otherwise you will need to change your browsing habits or you will end up with serious problems and will require the services of TSF's expert security team.

Hi friens....?

What is the meaning of Pop-ups? will they Harm our PC??

whenever, I am surfing the Internet, it will show your IE blocks the
Pop-ups??

pls help me???

thank you

A:What r Pop-ups in IE?will dey Harm d PC??

You can enable/disable pop-ups via IE Tools menu, Pop-up Blocker; also configure Settings.

Pop-ups are those separate dialogs that so up on WEB sites. Most are advertisements, but others are used when you clicks a site's Help (for example) or any other site function where they use non-advertising Pop-ups.

What you really MAY want is an Add Blocker, which will block only advertisement pop-ups and side-panels. But even Add Blockers MAY cause problems in sites that require adds to work. Example; MSN Videos have add videos that run between the videos you select, an active Add Blocker will prevent the video playing.

At home and work I use 2 browsers, IE6 and Maxthon. Maxthon comes with an integrated Add Blocker & Pop-up Blocker (and more).

So I run IE6 with the Pop-up Blocker disabled and Maxthon with both Add Blocker & Pop-up Blocker enabled.

RELATED ISSUE: Browser security

To protect your system from malware that comes in via your Browser, I highly recommend SpyBot Search and Destroy (donationware) Which we use at work (I'm the local IT Tech) and I use at home since Win3.1 days.

The Browser protection is provided by the Immunize function. It immunizes your browser from malware intrusions.

Notes on SpyBot S&D:After a definition Update, immediately run SpyBot Immunization (scan is optional, but suggest monthly)
DO not install Shredder and Context menu options, nor use TeaTimer

dear tech support guy, I've been given an on board type modem and i want to fit it into my PC. It's made by ASKEY model no FB V1414VQH-U it has a sticker to say it comlies with BT. Im worried because the connector strips on the motherboard are longer than the connectors on the modem. The modem will physically fit ok into my PC But it only uses up about two thirds of the connector strip. Is that OK? Some people say that the motherboard should have long and short connectors for different jobs, and some people say that its OK to plug in and try it cos IT CANT DO ANY HARM. Well i dont know about that, but they arent gonna get me another PC if it does. So im asking first. The PC is a DELL Dimension P60. Running WIN 95. Thanks for any advice, John.

My 100GB photo collection has a lot of ini,thm and db files. Is it safe to delete them? They are about 1000 of them.

Thanks in advance

A:Any harm in purging ini,thm and db files from pic folders?

.thm and .db files are created by windows when exploring your folders, they contain thumbnails and if deleted they should be created automatically again next time you browse this same folder. So yes it's perfectly safe to delete them.

.ini are configuration files, probably created by a 3rd party tool (maybe a picture viewer or something similar), they are viewable and editable by hand, so you can just open them with notepad to see what's in them (the prgram creating them might be indicated). It's most likely safe to delete them too, they probably contain information about your pictures like metadata / tags and similar.

But I doubt you'll gain much space by deleting those, they should be very light (a few kb). A better method would be to use a better format for your pictures if possible. If your photos come from your camera or scanner, they might be saved in a lossless format, which usually take a lot of space. Check their extensions on wikipedia or google to see if I'm right.

Good formats for photos are JPEG (best compression, but loss in quality) and PNG (no loss in quality). For personal photos I would go for JPG and try various compression ratios. Don't worry too much about the loss in quality, it's barely noticeable when setup right. Even at the highest quality (100), you should notice a major size reduction from a lossless format. If all your photos are already in JPEG, then don't bother recompressing, you would definitely lose in quality.

Hi,

I have a NEC 9100A 40/10/40x CD-RW drive on my home computer. I would like to burn around 300 CD-R's loaded to 700MB capacity with it. If each CD takes 3 minutes to burn, then I'm calculating that it would take about 15 hours, manually loading each disk.

I would like to know if such intense operation would be harmful to the drive. If cooling is a problem, I could open the case and circulate the air with a fan. Also, should I take breaks now and then, letting the drive rest a little? Is it wise to do this job at all?

Thanks,

IS there any harm to the hardware in repeatedly using the option ?

It may have a negative impact on windows..but does soft reseting affect any desktop component ?
 

A:Any harm to hardware in soft-resesting

I would say that its harmless to the hardware. Most of the harm happens on the initial surge of power and the spin up of mechanical components, but on the soft reset that doesn't happen because they are already spinning/powered up. Should be fine.

I have no proof its fine, but logically it makes sense.

You can remove it without harming anything. PC Doctor is a software program often installed by computer manufacturers and retailers ostensibly to cut down on the number of service calls from consumers. It is essentially a diagnostic module that can detect some computer problems and hopefully coach owners through DIY repairs. If, for whatever reason, you wish to remove this program from your computer, you can do so without affecting performance--in some cases, removing PC Doctor can actually improve the speed of your computer.http://www.ehow.com/how_6085761_remove-pc-doctor-windows.htmlThe Global Leader in System HealthPC-Doctor System Health Solutions for PC and Android devices reduce service delivery costs and increase aftermarket revenues for manufacturers, support centers, repair depots, retailers and others.PC-Doctor products are used by:OEMs — Preload solutions are preinstalled on individual systems by manufacturers, resellers, warranty providers and others to create a first line of defense against the unnecessary return of no-trouble-found hardware.

I'm little apprehensive about recurrent force power shutdown I had to do during past one week in my lappy. First, I had to do it while the whole system got stuck up following Prime95 stability scan when I customised blend settings for CPU 100% load along with 92% memory usage. Next time it was when the system freezed following CoreTemp startup (when I researched it through forums i could notice that the freezing issue is a bug in their latest version still persisting while running on win 8.1 OS). The last one was when I had to do when while shutting down normally I unplugged the usb connection from the port and system remained 'on' for unusually long time while screen had already turned off.
This all happened in the past week. I had bought this system just 2 months back. Could anyone tell me if there is anything to worry about or give some advice regarding it?

My apologies for the confusing title. Couldn't fit everything in there so I had to wing it.

Moving on...

Last night I noticed that a new driver for my Nvidia card was available. I opened GeForce experience and it said it was the Windows 10 driver or something of sorts. I chose a custom installation like I always do, and proceeded to check everything except the two 3D Vision driver boxes, as I've had issues with those in my system in the past, but not installing them never caused any harm as, I take it, they're not mandatory. I proceeded with the installation but it couldn't finish. A dialogue box came up indicating that one of the things that were to be installed -- in this case, the PhysX thing -- wasn't required, as my current version was the same, so I re-did the install again -- this time not checking the PhysX box -- and yet, the installation couldn't finish as well. This time it was a different error: It stated that an installation wizard was already opened, and that I had to close that and try again. I closed it through the task manager and did indeed try again, but lo and behold, it still wasn't working.

After that last attempt, however, I came back and noticed that my PC had shut down for some reason, so I restarted it, logged on, and my display resolution was now 1024x768 or something. I tried changing it back to the usual one, which is 1680x1050 (I have a 16:10 display) but that value wasn't even in the drop-down box. The ... Read more

A:W10 driver for Nvidia card issues. Did more harm.

I too was disgusted that Win 10 only came with Microsoft generic drivers. The icons on my desktop were the size of a mini-cooper car even when set to small. VLC could not support playing basic video files either ....way to make an impression Microsoft!!!

Anyway, rather than search Nvidia for Windows 10 drivers (which I assumed would not exist anyway) I did what I had done with Windows 8:- I installed the Vista/Win7/Win8 driver that I had kept. I didn't install the updater bit, just the driver. Surprise, - The icons were now small and round instead of huge and mis-shapen and VLC played perfectly. A vast improvement - and my display was set to the correct resolution and frequency too. Non-Microsoft you see!

No guarantees, but you may wish to try doing the same?

Incidentally, I use audacity to record from my Soundcard, so I went into sound settings, enabled the disabled items and selected stereomix as default as is needed. Microsoft had a surprise up their sleeve - they now have an advanced setting and the volume was set to zero so I had to select a higher setting, of course. Then I tried to record with audacity - it reported that there were no soundcard drivers installed - Thanks Microsoft!!

So as with the videocard, I installed my old Vista/Win7/Win8 soundcard driver - and away I went recording immediately.

Next I'm going to look at my network adaptor driver and work through the other drivers too until I obtain a decent-ish system - as I had prior to the upgrad... Read more
