I have a Scrabble game that I am trying to install but when I try to install it, a message comes up saying. "Not enough memory for background screen." It was copied to a floppy disk from another computer in which the game worked fine. I have 32Mb of ram. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:scrabble game

To install/run any game successfully you need to have a good amount of RAM, 64 MB at least. All the games or applications need RAM for their correct implementation. A low RAM results into unwanted and annoying errors.

Here is a software which frees up your RAM and lets you run programs better. Though I am not sure whether even freeing up your 32 MB of RAM will solve your problem, you can give it a try and download the software from here... RAM Booster

This what I found on why a higher RAM is important...
The CPU is not the only resource that is needed to execute a program. Memory (RAM) is equally important. By increasing the amount of free RAM you can speed up both memory and disk accesses. Windows uses RAM to cache files from the harddrive speeding up file operations. The harddrive on the other hand, is also used to store RAM contents (swap file) when there is not enough physical RAM. The result is that if you have enough free RAM everything will run faster, and if you don't, well, you need more. There are two ways to get more free RAM, either you buy more RAM (obviously), or you use less RAM by stopping some unnecessary processes. If you are using Windows 98 you probably use the ctrl+alt+del screen to stop unwanted processes. What most people don't know about the ctrl+alt+del screen though, is that there are many invisible processes that doesn't show up in this list. Many of these background processes ... Read more

My friend has just just replaced his onboard video to a nVidia e-G-Force 7600 GT 250MB PCI-E card. Everything seems to be setup ok, with the latest downloaded drivers installed. All the other games and programs are working except "Scabble complete" by Infogrames. Problem is when the disk is inserted the option to play the game is on the screen, as soon as you click play the whole screen goes black, all you can see is the curser moving around. The game was working fine until the new card was installed. Its a very simple game and is well within the capabilities of the computer.The details of the system are as follows:
HP Pavilion 7570,
Windows XP Media edition
2.8 GHz dual core CPU
2GB DDR2,
230 GB of free hard space
DirectX 9c

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

I regularly play a Scrabble-type game (called 'Words with Friends') with my son using our iPhones. These games a re a little drawn out, as he lives in Melbourne and I am in England, so the time difference prolongs the games a bit! My other son, who lives in England, wants to join in but he has a Blackberry and there doesn't appear to be a Blackberry version of Words for Friends. Does anyone know of this type of game which runs on both iPhones and Blackberries?

Now I know that this topic has been posted recently as well, but I haven't been able to clear it myself, unfortunately. When I launch Win7 Chrome boots with a website (sd-steam.info ) that directs me to zodiac-game.info. I've looked through my reg files and found on Run > there is a file under my user name stating ''explorer.exe st-steam.info''. Deleting this helps, but temporarily as it always comes back shortly after
( it seems to come back when a black /cmd/ screen pops up for a slight second ). Restoring my pc to a point prior to the downloads didn't seem to help either. I've a few pirated games on this pc, but nothing too recent. I hope it won't cause an issue that the reg file under Run has been deleted ( in hopes of repair ).

On Windows 10 startup, Firefox (my default browser) opens and loads up this ad site. I've run malwarebytes to no avail but I did find the registry location of part of the problem (attached image). Deleting the registry fixes it only temporarily until it is added again. I'm not sure what program is creating it or how to fully stop it. Any help would be appreciated! Also, yes I do have some pirated games but these are purely for demo reasons as I always purchase after trying them, although I did not download any around the time this started happening.

Greetings friends! Can someone please help us remove this "SD-Steam.Info" problem that's on our computer? This is what happens.

-> Upon turning on the computer, a browser will open up leading to "SD-Steam.Info" or sometimes "Zodiac-game.info" site.

So far the temporary solution that we were able to come up with was block SD-Steam.Info and Zodiac-game.info via the host files. Because of this, even if something tries to open the browser (we use Chrome), it would only display a blank page and go nowhere.

Unfortunately, whenever we use Malwarebytes to remove it, the redirecting problem comes back and gets detected after restarting the pc. In other words, it somehow still manages to resurrect itself or re-create itself.

We also tried deleting the entry of SD-Steam.Info from the registry via regedit, but just like before, it keeps coming back everytime the computer's restarted.

Someone suggested "Farbar" and from what we've seen, that one seemed to work with others who have this similar problem. Unfortunately, since Farbar is new to us, we don't know how to properly use it and we don't want to mess with it. Can you please help us use Farbar in order to eliminate this redirecting problem?

When I start up my computer an IE window opens up with zodiac-game.info URL. I tried deactivating sd-steam.info in the Windows Startup window and deleting it from the registry but after starting up the computer twice it appears again.

Hi!

So I am having this problem too since few days. After starting my PC, firefox opens with sd-steam.info and redirects to zodiac-game.info after few seconds. I do have few pirated games but nothing changed and I do not installed anything recently.

My observation:

There is a regedit entry called sd-steam.info, if I delete it and restart my PC, the pop up is gone but randomly the entry keeps comming back at a point. There is also  a taskeng.exe (or something like that) pop up for a sec it is just black and says nothing but it is gone really fast. I think after that the regedit entry is also back.

I tryed multiple malware removing tools already but there are no hits.

I know that the internet is full of this right now but I can not find a working solution. So my questions are:

What is this? Is this damaging my files and causing more problems or just an advertisement?

How can I fix it and remove it completely?

Hello everyone,
Been struggling all day with this annoying pop up that opens chrome as sd-steam.info and then redirects to zodiac-game.info. It appears only and at every pc reboot. Tried running everything from malwarebytes to adwcleaner and even reseting my chrome settings and account. Tried following some of the guides already posted here to no sucess thus far.
Any help would be deeply appreciated.
Kind regards,

A strange thing happens in Spybot S&D when one clicks Help, About, and then mouse over the circled I in the top left of the about screen and click. The program whinnies and some sort of matrix game appears. I had Spybot 1.5.5 installed on both my family's laptops and this happens on both of them. I uninstalled it on one of the laptops and downloaded a fresh copy of Spybot 1.6.2 and installed it. The same thing still happens. At first I thought my laptops had been compromised. Now I'm not sure. This could be a clever little piece of software the authors added. Does anyone have any ides?

BTW, I did a Hijack this and tracked down every running process and startup process and they all seemed legitimate. I can post the log if anyone wants to look. I've also done an AVG scan on both machines which thought each machine was clean.

If anyone else has Spybot intalled, I"d be curious if you have the same glitch.

Hello, starting today I'm troubled by zodiac-game.info web page opening at the start of the system. It opens in Edge browser (the only one I do not use at all) yet it is annoying.
Tried to follow internet advices and remove it manually (uninstall suspicious programs, folders and registry entries in pointed locations) didn't achieve almost anything.
Noticed one thing - while removing some bad registry entries a quick .cmd (a little black window) appeared and quickly disappeared - guess something started to run, the same happend at first scan wid adwCleaner when it showed 7 threats.
Had some experience with this forum so far (you've helped a lot) so i know the drill.

I know, it's a confusing title.. But basically, I'll be getting a second HDD (2TB) and a 120GB SSD. The SSD I'll be moving my current Win8.1 setup there and duel booting/re-partitioning Win7 on that same SSD. My question, once I do this I need to know if disc games like Skyrim and Steam games like Planeteside 2 and Tomb Raider will be able to be saved onto one of the HDD's and not the SSD. Also, those with gamer experience, are all games able to be moved to HDD, or installed outside of the SSD where the OS's are located? I'm a new gamer and a new PC builder, the PC is built and running great for the past 3 months or so and been PC gaming about as long, so there's still some small details I'm not quite sure about. And I'd like to find out before I spend more on new hardware..
EDIT: Forgot to say I currently have 1TB HDD and all that above will be added..

Whenever I restart my laptop, my default browser (no matter which one) starts automatically and goes to kb-ribaki.org and then re-directs to zodiac-game.info/pager.html

After some research (that's how I found you fine folks!) I decided to run some scans. My previous scans did show a virus (Poweliks) and was removed.

I have tried to reset Chrome and then not login, but to no avail. I also uninstalled and reinstalled Chrome (no login) and got the same result.

I have included log files.

As per your piracy policy, I have uninstalled my BitTorrent client.

Hi,

Recently, my computer has decided to show the BSOD everytime I watch videos and play games. I only play LOTR ROTWK on my computer and as it is pretty old it shouldn't really be putting strain on my computer.

My computer was custom built around 2006 and i have attached the diagnostics file with all the hardware info. I have tried updating all my drivers with driver genius but i still get the BSOD. The one I'm getting now is the ntkrnlmp.exe and before that I was getting a c-media ac97 BSOD which was rectified by updating my Asus xonar dg sound card driver.

EDIT: I just was playing and got this error:
On Mon 21/01/2013 00:14:34 GMT your computer crashed

Hello all,

Please can anyone help regarding the PC Scrabble 99 game? My friend and I have been regularly playing via TCP/Internet multiplay for many months now with no probs but right now all of a sudden my friends PC won't allow me to connect anymore.

We've both checked out our security software to see if any change has occurred particularly with the firewall settings but all seems ok & is set the same as before this connectivity problem. We both run XP home with SP2 with windows firewall set to off & have identical Norton Internet Security 2006 software installed instead.

We have both changed security software [now running AVG Free with Sygate Personal Firewall] to see if there is a difference but unfortunately encounter the same problem.

I have a wireless home network running 1 laptop with 1 desktop PC and tried a multiplay game between these two PC's & there was no problem with this, so just can't work out why all of a sudden my friend & I are unable to connect up.

Braz.

A:PC Scrabble 99

Have discovered it might be a security issue regarding router. I changed my set-up back to ISP supplied modem & reconnected to Internet to test game multiplayer connectivity. The game resumed to normal & therefore was able to play via internet. [next step for me now is to try & work out a remedy for the router issue now!]

Any ideas will be greatly welcome. Thanks all.

Hello Everyone-

I am sure the solution to this one is simple, but I can't seem to find it. I have a home network that has been up and running for years. My wife and I play Hasbro Scrabble 2.0 with the Version 2 upgrade patch between our two computers. My PC is Win XP pro with AMD K62 and 256 MB RAM. My wife's PC is an AMD Athlon 1Gig with 256 MB RAM. Until last weekend, her PC was Windows 98SE. I successfully upgraded her PC to Win XPpro and everything works fine, file sharing, printing, seeing all other PCs on the LAN, Internet access, etc. The only exception is Scrabble. Now all the desktops are Windows XP pro and I cannot establish a game session between any two XP machines. I speculate that it is a port or ports that need to be opened or some other security related area. I can successfully play Scrabble between my PC and my Win98SE laptop over the same network.

Ideas? Thanks in advance for any help.

A:Scrabble on Home network using XP

I just wanted to let everyone know that I found the problem. The PC which I had recently upgraded did not have the same version of DirectX on it as my original Win XP machine. I upgraded all my PCs to the latest DirectX 9.0c and now my network games, and particularly Scrabble, are functioning again!

Also, I noted during my research that the DirectX executable, dsplaysvr.exe, uses UDP Port number 47624. When I found one of my PCs unable to ACK on this port, this led me to the solution.

HI--
I was wondering if someone could help me concerning Scrabble interactive.
I've been trying to figure this out on my own and can't and no one knows either. The Tech Help for MSN and Scrabble don't really help much.
I just bought Scrabble v2.0 the other day for mostly to be able to play online and I am stumped on what I am suppose to do when I "host" and what is suppose to happen once I press "launch". I don't want to do the wrong thing.
I can get onto the website just fine and can get to the place where they play Scrabble.
What do I do after I press "launch"?

Thanks--rubyangel PS: OS HP Windows 98

A:stumped on scrabble interactive

With multiplayer games, you can HOST a game or JOIN a game. Both explantory. When you are hosting a game, you need to set the game rules / preferences etc then when you are done, you need to launch the game. (Starting your game). Your game starts when you have sufficent players for your game.

Hi everyone,

this is a bit of a longshot but here goes. I play Scrabble 2005 quite a bit but every now and then I will enter a game and none of the 'windows' (such as scores, disctionary, timer) are visible. I go to options-->desktop---> customise, where you can usually choose which windows you want to view while you play a game, but after deselecting and reselecting the check boxes I still can't see my scores, or how much time I have left, etc.

If I uninstall and reinstall it, the problem is fixed. However I don;t want to have to do this everytime it goes wrong.

I guess this will depend on whether anyone else owns this game and has experienced a similar problem, I have tried the EA site etc but have found no help.

ETA: Investigated a bit deeper, and found that reinstalling actually does not work, but creating an entirely new "profile" does.

I have been playing ea scrabble (I log in with my Facebook account) on my iPad and my android phone for over a year quite happily, but about 2 weeks ago I started getting this message when I try to load my games list: Network Error:There seems to be a problem connecting to the network. You may experience reduced functionality as a result.
I get this message and I click the "continue" button that appears under the message, try to refresh my games list again, get the same message, click continue, try to refresh games list again, and this will go on for hours and sometimes days without my being able to ever load my games and play my turns. Then, out of the blue it will load some of my current games and allow me to play a few turns before the error message returns. This is rare, and for the most part, it does not load at all.
This problem is identical and started at the same time on both of my devices (iPad & Lg Optimus Elite).
I have tried getting help from ea to no avail, and I am really getting desperate for suggestions.
I have tried the following:

A:Network error in ea scrabble

Hi Kim,

If this is happening on two of your devices both on different platforms, I would be looking to EA and possible bugs in the game due to recent update. It might also be that damaged files still reside on both platforms up on uninstall, so even when you reinstall the game, it tries to reuse the same damaged files. The only suggestion I have is plugging your android phone in to your PC and searching for the game directory in the phone and deleting it entirely, then install it from the Play Store and see if it works then.

On looking your problem up, many people have had this problem but many have resolved it by uninstalling > then clear cache > restart device > reinstalling, if you haven't tried in this order, it may just be worth a go.

I hope you get your solution.

Regards,

After she clicked deny scrabble would no longer work. The normal green scrabble loading icon will appear but no advertisement and after 30 seconds or so a plain white screen will appear.

It's not dangerous, but I believe you can get it to display correctly. All you have to do is open Device Manager, right-click each entry for the CPU and choose Uninstall. When you're finished, reboot and then open Device Manager up when it's done rebooting and check the CPU again. It should be showing up correctly after that, but if not then we'll go from there.

Unless you're particularly interested in the mechanics of why this might be happening, I'd suggest booting to safe mode (press the F8 key early during Windows startup) and moving or deleting the files from there. You probably won't have trouble deleting the files that way.

Hi everyone!

Ive just completed my upgrade from an MSI 745 Ulta mobo and ATI Radeon 7000 series 64meg AGP x4 graphics card to an Abit NF7-S mobo and ATI Radeon 9550 AGP x8 256meg graphics card and I gotta say, boy what a difference.

Now I have to save up my pennies to get myself a better processor, I have an AMD Athlon XP Pro 2000 and was wondering what i should replace it with?

There's a fair ammount of choice out there so i was wondering if anyone has any recomendations?

Nice speed jump!
Upgrading always starts with budjet. If you are going to keep your Mb , then simply buy the best (fastest) CPU you can afford at the time.If you are saving pennies you will probably be able to get the quickest cpu your mb can handle.

Hi,

Having successfully performed a 3 hour chkdsk by means of a downloaded microsoft program which did this automatically, the screen is left hanging and there is no option available to exit from it. I tried switching off and then on again but this just puts me back to the start of the chdsk routine which then completes again. So I'm stuck in a loop from which I can't escape !! What do you recommend ?

A:After chkdsk has completed

Hello ,

here is a shot in the dark

turn your system on & then back off

them push your power button as if you wanted to start it and hold it for a count of 10

this will clear the compleat system of power and maybe reset way your system starts / you may want to reset the bios also by crossing the bios jumpers or just pulling the litheum battery from your mother board for at least 3 minutes

you may be looking at wipeing the driver & reinstalling

have you tried to get into the recovery console useing the Windows XP cd ?

Hello

I needed you to go all the way through the steps. We prefer a more comprehensive set of logs to assist in detecting any malware that may be present. As noted in the final step (Step 5) of our sticky topic (Updated!) IMPORTANT - Read This Before Posting A Log, download Deckard's System Scanner (DSS) to your Desktop.

What DSS will do:create a new System Restore point in Windows XP and Vista.
clean your Temporary Files, Downloaded Program Files, and Internet Cache Files, and also empty the Recycle Bin on all drives.
check some important areas of your system and produce a report for your analyst to review.
DSS automatically runs HijackThis for you, but it will also install and place a shortcut to HijackThis on your desktop if you do not already have HijackThis installed.

Note: You must be logged onto an account with administrator privileges.Close all applications and windows.
Double-click on dss.exe to run it, and follow the prompts.
When the scan is complete, two text files will open - main.txt <- this one will be maximized and extra.txt <-this one will be minimized
Copy (Ctrl+A then Ctrl+C) and paste (Ctrl+V) the contents of main.txt in your next reply.

Hi and welcome to TSF.

My name is Iain and I will be helping you clean your system.

Please read these instructions carefully and then print out or copy this page to Notepad in order to assist you when carrying out the fix. You should not have any open browsers or live internet connections when you are following the procedures below.

Note that the fix may take several posts. Please continue to respond to my instructions until I confirm that your logs are clean. Remember that although your symptoms may vanish, this does NOT mean that your system is clean.

If there is anything you don't understand, please ask BEFORE proceeding with the fixes.

Please ensure that you follow the instructions in the order I have them listed.
Do not do anything with this yet!

Reboot
Reboot your system in Safe Mode.Restart the computer. The computer begins processing a set of instructions known as BIOS.
After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, press F8 (dependent on your system this may be F5 or another key)
Use the arrow key to highlight Safe Mode and press Enter.

Dear Broni and All,

I have completed all steps, and ran the security programmes recommended in this thread:

http://www.techspot.com/community/topics/keep-getting-stupid-shopping-malware-installed.208648/

However, I am still getting pop-ups and adware related problems, which means that the underlying problem has not been resolved.
These are the programmes that I have run (today, 18/05/2015):
-RogueKiller
-Mbar
-AdwCleaner (it removed NickelBlock, AllCheeiaPPPriCe, DowwnSaave, SaVieNeewaApupoz)
-Junkware Remover
-Farbar Recovery Tool
-Farbar Security Scanner
-Security Check
-Tempfile Cleaner

I am currently running Sophos.
My laptop runs Windows 8.1, and Combofix does not support it.
The antivirus that I have is Kaspersky (I previously had Microsoft Security Essential), and Windows Defender. The malware was not detected by a Kaspersky and Spybot full scan a few days ago. However, on the 26th of April, I manually uninstalled some adware, and then ran full scans, which showed nothing.

As you can imagine, I don't think I have many options left, and formatting my laptop is a dreadful prospect. I was wondering if you could give me some advice.
I have kept all logs of the security programmes that I've run.

Thank you in advance, and looking forward to hearing from you.

A:Completed all instructions, but still getting adware pop-ups

Welcome aboard

Never follow steps from other topics. Every computer is unique.

Please, complete all steps listed here: http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic58138.html
Make sure, you PASTE all logs. If some log exceeds 50,000 characters post limit, split it between couple of replies.
Attached logs won't be reviewed.

Read all of my instructions very carefully. Your mistakes during cleaning process may have very serious consequences, like unbootable computer.
If you're stuck, or you're not sure about certain step, always ask before doing anything else.
Please refrain from running any tools, fixes or applying any changes to your computer other than those I suggest.
Never run more than one scan at a time.
The cleaning process, once started, has to be completed. Even if your computer appears to act better, it may still be infected. Once the computer is totally clean, I'll certainly let you know.
If you leave the topic without explanation in the middle of a cleaning process, you may not be eligible to receive any more help in malware removal forum.
I close my topics if you have not replied in 5 days. If you need more time, simply let me know. If I closed your topic and you need it to be reopened, simply PM me.

A:Urllogic Pop-ups, completed all prereqs

Let's see if these logs will show us anything:

The Temp folders should be cleaned out periodically as installation programs and hijack programs leave a lot of junk there. Download CleanUp! (Alternate Link if main link don't work) and install it. Do not run it yet.

Before doing anything, MAKE SURE that you can keep your computer on (at least until we get it fixed). This infection requires us to detect and remove it without rebooting or restarting your computer (unless the instructions say so). If you can't keep your computer on today, then I suggest that you don't get the logs yet until you are ready. With that said (when ready):

Open up HijackThis and go to Config->Misc Tools and check the first two boxes there. Now click on the Generate StartupList log button. Post that log in your next post.

Right click on this link and choose Save As...Save it to your Desktop. Make sure you have disabled any programs that may block/disable scripts (ex: Ad-Watch, TeaTimer, Norton, etc.). Double click on Silent Runners to run it. This will take a few minutes. It will create a file called Startup Programs followed by your computer name and current date. Open up that file and post all the contents here in your next post.

Download Find-qoologic. Unzip the files to your Desktop. Open the qoologic folder and run the qoologic.bat file. Wait a few minutes for it to finish. When the dos window disappears, go to your C: drive and open up the log.txt file. Copy and p... Read more

I'll give some background.

I have a tri-boot setup. Windows 8 one ssd, windows 7 pro on a second ssd and ubuntu 13.04 on a partition on a 2 gig raid 1. The boot partition is on the windows 7 ssd. All drives are on the same Intel controller. Prior to the 8.1 attempt it worked. I'd boot the w7 ssd and a black win7 style boot screen would appear with the 3 OS choices. I'd been using win 8 as primary since it's release with no real issues.

I updated through the store early today and the process had a hitch after the first reboot but I rebooted and it completed the install. Windows 8.1 started and walked me though an initial setup. Once in, all looked pretty much unchanged. The only issued was it asked me to reinstall some XLan software.

I rebooted to check my other OS's and the problems began. I boot up, it loaded the blue win8 boot screen with all 3 OS present when I attempted to boot ubuntu it went to a black screen with no possible input. Hard rebooting brought up the grub bootloader (not win8 bootscreen) and I was able to enter ubuntu. Same thing happened with win 7 pro. I soft rebooted and the win 8 bootscreen appeared. Choosing win 7 took me to a hung black screen - hard reboot directly started up win 7. Restarting to win 8 bootscreen again and choosing win8.1 took me to another black screen - Hard reboot from there started up a win 8 repair process.

This is always the case with each of the 3 OS's. I have found that I can get into win8 if I enter through safe mode ... Read more

A:8.1 update completed but problematic

I have the exact same problem. I even had the XLan error you described. Once I restarted the computer, it always go to a black screen. I do not have multiple OS's to boot into, but the black screen always comes up after the little blue windows 8 loading screen.

Update:

When I tried your suggestion of enabling Debugging, it loaded up. However, 1-2 minutes later it would freeze and I would have to push the reset button on the machine. In Safe Mode, I didn't have any of the freezing, but when I tried to uninstall Norton Internet Security, it would freeze. After a restart, I downloaded the Norton Removal Tool, and removed Norton. At this point, starting Windows 8.1 with Debugging allows me to stay freeze-free. However, trying to start up without Debugging gives me the same black screen.

Another thing to note is that when I have all non-Microsoft services stopped, I still get the black screen upon bootup. I'm not quite sure what Debugging mode does in terms of bootup, but its definitely a workaround for now. I used msconfig.exe to keep debugging turned on for now.

Again, if someone figures out the fix, report back.

hi guys,

every single time I try to rename a folder the boring message "The action can't be completed because the folder or the file is in use" appears even if apparently neither the folder or a file in it is in use.

What I have to do is: Task Manager > Explorer.exe > End Process > File > New Task > Explorer.exe and I am able to rename the folder.

It is a really boring process and I find this process really stupid. The folders I am trying to rename are full of pictures, I think it is something related to the Thumbs files.

Anybody of you have the same issue? Any possible solution?

Thanks

A:New netbook setup not completed,

Hello, Thank you for posting in the HP Support forum. Is this re. Windows login ? You can't login to Windows? If yes, I have encounter such a problem once only but was with Win 8. Anyway - if this is a new computer you can revert the software back to factory default settings. Eventually you should create a local account (not login with Microsoft account). At the end, you can always migrate the local account to Microsoft account. If this is not re. Windows login, please provide back details.

Hello,

Had the "Security Center" come up on this computer...got rid of it using the tutorials on this site, along with trying all the other suggestions for removing rootkits that may be causing the redirects. Some solutions seem to run their course, others don't. Still having issues: browser redirects, browsers stop working, MBAM errors, Start menu blank, "waiting for background programs to end" on shutdown.

So, not sure where to go from here. Help please.
