I have aol 9.0 and so far it is a horror. It freezes when it is not lurching, and this happens every time I employ it. Am I the only one having repeated, continual problems with this program? Is it something I did or said? Did I install a lemon? Somebody tell me: am I the only one suffering these problems with aol? I'm sending this by old reliable aol 8.0 'cause 9.0 is breaking my heart.

I have recently uninstalled AOL 9.0 Optimized SE and installed AOL 9.0 Optimized VR. Now the trouble is that it can't find my modem. I do not have any of my access numbers to the internet either.

A:Which of these optimized software is the best ?

Welcome to the Seven Forums

Windows 7 does not need any optimizing software. You will do more harm than good with any of them, then you will be back here asking questions why your computer is not working right.
Do not use any of them.

When I installed Crysis demo, I knew it wasnt going to run great. But when I clicked on optimized settings, it put everything in medium quality. It was slooow. Then I got Medieval War II and clicked on optimized settings and it set everything to high which makes the game very laggy. It seems like no matter what the game is, whenever the game optimizes itself, it always thinks that my computer can do better than it actually does.

My question is this. Is there something I have to change in the setting of my computer or do all games do that? Maybe graphics card settings? I know my computer is not a gamer rig but it can barely play RTS games even though I have recommended system requirements for all of them.

My Specs:

Pentium D 3.4 Ghz
2 GB Ram
250 GB HDD
ATI Radeon 2400 Pro PCIe with 256GB

Thanks
 

A:Optimized settings

Dang, if that system can't play games then very few can. You have the hardware, have you checked for updated drivers for the video card? That could help, but I can't imagine it would fix that extreme of a problem.
Have you checked to see if anything else was using the CPU while you are trying to play the game? Are you playing local or over the network? Sorry .... more questions that answers.

Hi,
This is not for Gaming but for Music creation but the same theme applies.

Is there any way to either set up Windows (7 in my case) so that I can instantly have the current drive, running only limited applications?
If I swap USER accounts I will lose administrative and personalised settings.
At the moment I open task manager and manually end processes each time I need to free up resources which is a pain.
If I could set up a preconfigured environment to run at the click of a mouse that would be great!!
Even better would be if, when I launch my Music Workstation it automatically launches this environment.

Any ideas?

Mike

A:Optimized 'template' ?

You can go to Start > Run > Type "Services.msc" and right-click properties on the services you want to halt. Under "Startup Type" change it from Automatic to Manual.
What this will do is not load that service until it is needed.
For example if you set Print Spooler to Manual the only time that service will start is when you open up a Word document and go to print. However once the service has started you'll need to stop it again.

There are programs like Tuneup Utilities which you can select services to be disabled and tuneup will automatically enable the service when needed and then disable it again.
This program is the safe option as it wont allow you to stop critical system services.
Tuneup also has the feature to add programs to the startup list on a Delayed Start to that your system has time to load first, then loads your music program.

I'm a very avid gamer and I've been trying how to configure my system solely for gaming and I was looking for some help with that such as which services I can stop/disable (so they don't run on startup) and etc. I'm not sure exactly what information I'll need to provide for someone to help me with this so yeah.

A:Optimized for gaming

It all depends on whether the gaming includes internet usage or not?

Plus you can create a batch file to stop the services before running the game and another one to start the services when you have finished with the game...this works out pretty well.

Hello allCan the following solution be optimized somehow or am I stock with this very slow working array formula?I have a sheet with the following data: A B C
1 111 2011 1
2 111 2012 1
3 111 2013 2
4 222 2015 1
5 222 2011 1
6 333 2014 1
7 333 2011 2
8 333 2012 3
9 444 2015 1
10 444 2012 1The first column is ID numbers, the second column is a year, the third column is a priority number, where 1 is first priority and so on. What I need is a solution that returns either the year 2011 or the year 2012, based on which priority number they have. 2011 is also first priority, so if 2011 and 2012 for a given ID number has the same priority, then 2011 has to be returned, but if 2012 has the highest priority, then that has to be returned. 2011 and 2012 will always be in the data set for all ID numbers, so no worries there.I then have those ID numbers (one of each ID number) in a separate list in the same sheet and in the column next to it, I have the following array formula to get the year I need for that particular ID number:{=INDEX(B:B;
IFERROR(MATCH(1;(I1=A:A)*(1=C:C)*(2011=B:B);0);
IFERROR(MATCH(1;(I1=A:A)*(2=C:C)*(2011=B:B);0);
IFERROR(MATCH(1;(I1=A:A)*(3=C:C)*(2011=B:B);0);
IFERROR(MATCH(1;(I1=A:A)*(1=C:C)*(2012=B:B);0);
IFERROR(MATCH(1;(I1=A:A)*(2=C:C)*(2012=B:B);0);
MATCH(1;(I1=A:A)*(3=C:C)*(2012=B:B);0)
))))))}It surely does what I want, but it is very very slow!Any suggestions on how to make this more efficient or maybe another approach?Thanks a lot in advance/Jacob

A:Can this approach be optimized?

Without even trying to understand what your doing,change your formula so you DO NOT use the entire columns.Do you really need to search all 1,048,576 rows?Just use the range of data required. MIKEhttp://www.skeptic.com/message edited by mmcconaghy

What does "Load Optimized Defaults" do in BIOS? I am curious, I have a problem and this might be one of my options.

Thanks

A:Load Optimized Defaults

It loads the default settings...which are supposed to provide the best chance of booting.But...if the system was set up via a network install, then it may make the boot order one that produces an error...as the system tries to boot from a network connection, rather than the hard drive or optical drive.I would suggest to always check what the boot options are...after using/loading the optimized defaults. If the first option is not the hard drive, then I would change it (assuming that I have already installed Windows on a hard drive).More InfoLouis

How can I revert back to IE8 that is NOT optimized for msn and bing? I don't use either, I use google. Also, this IE8 is giving my weird issues, for example: when trying to type a post on a forum or on facebook it limits the number of characters I can type in the text field. Once I reach a certain number of lines it just won't display beyond it and I cannot type anymore. I know it's this computer (if not the version of IE8 on this computer) because I don't have that problem on my laptop.

I'd like to try installing the previous un-optimized version of IE8, unless anyone has any other suggestions?

Any help or advice appreciated.

DELL Inspirion 531s Windows Vista Home Premium SP #2

Recentlly uploaded AOL 9.0 SE on Vista, and everything seemed to go fine, but whenever I sign off, I keep getting a message saying do not turn off machine its installing updates. Okay, i've seen this message when I was using XP periodocally, but the process went through quickly and no problems. But with Vista, it seems to be everytime I sign off I'm getting this updating message, and it literally takes about an hour for the update to go through. I've uninstalled, and re-installed the software, but when I sign off its the same problem all over again. Being a long time AOL customer this is very strange, so my question is should I be using a higher Version of AOL with Vista?
Thanks in Advance..
 

A:Problems with AOL 9.0 SE Optimized on Vista

The problem you are having may not be an actual problem or even with your AOHELL software. I have to say this or else I could not go on, GET RID OF AOHELL PLEASE.

Ok now we can move on

Log into your computer as administrator and run windows updates. On Vista it can be found under START > All Programs > Windows Update. Do not worry how long it will take as this is relative to each computer and what it needs. Just install the important/crital updates leaving the optional ones alone for now. Wait until Windows downloads and installs all of them and you may have to restart your computer once or twice.

BTW: Uninstall that software completely from your system. Then create a restore point if you dare to install it again Here are a couple of places for reference.

If HP does not provide XP drivers (have you looked?) for that machine the probability that you can find adequate ones somewhere is low.

Hi, Is the error code actually:    RU7Q3F-72683G-MFPV61-61T503 If so, it does confirm a failure of the optimized disk self test which basically means that some areas of the HDD occupied by the operating system are un-readable - this may well mean that the drive is failing and will need to be replaced. If your notebook is still under warranty, contact HP and arrange to have the drive replaced - If needed, you can check your warranty status Here. If you live in the US, contact HP Here. If you are in another part of the world, start Here. If you are out of warranty and as long as the previous installation of Windows 10 had activated Ok after the upgrade from 8.1, you can try performing a clean installation as detailed in the guide on the following link.  Note: At the activation screen, select 'I don't have a Product key' - Windows will activate automatically once the installation has completed. http://www.howtogeek.com/224342/how-to-clean-install-windows-10/ If you still get the same error after a clean install, then the HDD will need to be replaced. Regards, DP-K

A:I E 8 Optimized for Bing and MSN Installed recently

Perhaps as part of the process of installing the new browser, IE8 was set to the current security or privacy settings and they are too high. I would think it would work with the defaults on the normal IE8 so first try to reset IE (tools/internet options/advanced/reset.) If that doesn't fix it, try lowering the security level or accepting more cookies under privacy. Perhaps the "helpful insrtuctions" will provide a clue as to how to change them.

How can this "template" be changed to always include additional columns, such as "Duration"?

Is it possible to edit the Optimized Folder Templates to add or remove columns?

I am very interested to know if anybody knows the answer to this. Thanks

A:Optimized folder templates - editing

Yes, Antonimo, it is easy to add new columns or remove the ones that are already there. You right-click on any column header, choose "More" and then you have a near infinite list of possible columns. You can move them up or down the list, thus changing which column is shown first and so on.

Once you have achieved the set-up you want, you can go to Folder Options -> View and apply the chosen set-up to all folders of the same type. To choose the type, you click on the folder icon, then Properties -> Customize, but that you should do prior to choosing columns.

Hope that helps.

How Big Should I Make the Paging File?

Perhaps one of the most commonly asked questions related to virtual memory is, how big should I make the paging file? There’s no end of ridiculous advice out on the web and in the newsstand magazines that cover Windows, and even Microsoft has published misleading recommendations. Almost all the suggestions are based on multiplying RAM size by some factor, with common values being 1.2, 1.5 and 2. Now that you understand the role that the paging file plays in defining a system’s commit limit and how processes contribute to the commit charge, you’re well positioned to see how useless such formulas truly are.

Since the commit limit sets an upper bound on how much private and pagefile-backed virtual memory can be allocated concurrently by running processes, the only way to reasonably size the paging file is to know the maximum total commit charge for the programs you like to have running at the same time. If the commit limit is smaller than that number, your programs won’t be able to allocate the virtual memory they want and will fail to run properly.

So how do you know how much commit charge your workloads require? You might have noticed in the screenshots that Windows tracks that number and Process Explorer shows it: Peak Commit Charge. To optimally size your paging file you should start all the applications you run at the same time, load typical data sets, and then note the commit charge peak (or... Read more

I play Dayz a lot. Amazing game, but terrible performance. I sometimes have to deal with ten frames per second. I rarely ever get over thirty frames. I have added in startup parameters in Dayz Commander to help the game perform better, I have tweaked my settings and tried several things to boost FPS.
Is there anyone else that falls victim to this as well? Can someone give me some suggestions on how to increase my performance? And I am already planning on getting an EVGA Gtx 680 2gb for the standalone, but I don't know how much of a performance boost that will be on the mod as it is.
Also, I run Core Temp and TechPowerUp GPU-Z constantly and I monitor the loads and temps on my second monitor. I notice that I rarely ever get over a forty percent GPU load. When I enter big cities with lots of action going on my GPU load goes straight to zero and that's when I get the worst FPS. My processor hits a little over fifty percent load but it varies between cores. It doesn't seem like I am using the most out of my hardware. This is frustrating. I think Dayz has to be the worst optimized game I have ever played. I can play newer better graphics games maxed out and get over sixty frames.

hello forum,

all of a sudden my external HDD (USB) is no longer performance optimized.
usually the properties window of the device has a tab "policies" where you can choose between "quick removal" and "better performance".

after recent system changes (BIOS update, windows updates, formatting the external HDD) i observed very poor performance.
i then noticed the following:
1) the device no longer shows up in systray / notification area for safe removal
2) the properties dialog no longer has the policies tab!

so it looks like the operating system has permanently activated the "quick removal" (write caching disabled) now and won't allow me to change it to "better performance" (write caching enabled, systray icon for safe removal).
but why?
and how to change it back?
some additional notes notes:

a) windows 7 is still showing proper behaviour for other removalbe devices (e.g. USB thumbs driver). it seems to be specific to my external HDD.

b) the external HDD is formatted with NTFS.

c) this is a dual boot system (win7 x64, win xp x86). my external HDD doesn't show those symptoms when booting into windows xp. so i can rule out the bios update as root cause. it seems to be specific to win7.

d) my system has 12 GB of RAM. so the full memory is visible to win7 x64, but only 2.5 GB is visible to winxp x86.

A:external USB HDD no longer performance optimized

any ideas how to proceed?

So after a reformat of my computer, anytime I shut the computer off and cut off electrical power from either the PSU or the UPS my system will not load directly to windows, BIOS will come up saying that it has detected changes and offers to load optimized results or enter BIOS, going into BIOS I am able to see that all my custom settings have been overriden and I have to start all over.

I am thinking this is electrical, but find it strange that it happened after I reformatted and cleaned my computer.

The motherboard is an F2A85X-UP4

It likely that your CMOS battery (button cell) on your motherboard needs replacing. It's what maintains the BIOS settings when the PC is off.

I purchased my laptop computer about 1 1/2 years ago. A few months ago it was running slow so I upgraded the internet explorer (the version that is optimized for Bing and MSN) and now I keep getting these messages that IE is not responding. I talked to Toshiba and the guy said it might be a virus, but since my 1 year warranty had expired, he could only help me if I agreed to a $35 fee. That was out. So I did a system restore with the disks from Toshiba to restore my computer to the out of the box condition. I am still getting these messages and it is getting frustrating, because whenever I try to read my emails in either gmail or aol, it won't load and when I click on it again I get an error message that IE (not responding) I have also noticed that I get a message about a tab being recovered. I don't have a clue as to what is going on and I really need help. I have anti-virus software and I always update the windows and the Norton 360 software. I am getting somewhat frustrated since I have online businesses that I need to check on (some daily), but it seems as though I am spending half my day trying to get the pages to load and refreshing pages and all that. I am on skype so if this is something that needs a step by step instruction, please send me a note and give me a good time to connect with you on skype. My skype name is in my profile.

Hi everyone

I'm experiencing several problems with an optimized win7 installation, though that i've been working on this through months.

I've already solved most of them, but there are some that i can't solve, and the system itself doesn't help (The error messages don't match with the actual causes, the troubleshooter doesn't work, etc)

My main problem now is starting some services, such as Windows Event Log and WLAN autoconfig.

All their dependencies are satisfied, all the associated files and dll's are working and registered, but i still get the same message error:
It doesn't specify what is the path that it can't find, but all paths associated to that service on the registry are working, i've checked it many times.

I can't update the system again, but the system was updated in october, and all updates were ok, there were no problems.

I have a single user, and there are no permission issues anymore, all the system and service profiles are also functional, and all drivers are updated and working.

I've also cleaned the registry and scanned for issues, none have been found.

The only other problem i have now is with the Windows Update system, once CBS Manifest is corrupted, and i just can't find a way to correct it (all given solutions on internet fail with me, nothing can correct this, but all files associated to CBS Manifest are ok, i don't know why it says it's corrupted)

So, do anyone know what can i do?

I have a guy that used to work at my company install more ram memory on my computer. He said he would also put XP Pro on it...I told him I liked Home but he said I could have both and it would work better and faster for me. He assured me it would do no damage, but it has or maybe just messed things up. I turn on and pick which I want then in Home nothign works...not my favs, not typing a site in go line not clicking on links...I get a message Application not available. I have done a restore to yesterday on it but it didn't help.

Can I uninstall pro and not lose any info and is it easy enough for an old lady that knows little about puters to do?

Is there anyone that I can get to help me or do it for me thru remote assistant? Please help, I am handicapped and work from home online and need my puter working right for me.:

A:XP PRO messes up XP HOME...help.

unless that guy gave you a legal xp pro cd, you have an illegal operating system on your computer. That guy need to be shot if thats the case.

Did he partition a drive to install xp pro? or was it installed on a second drive on your computer? does the nonworking application work in pro? Finally do you have a xp cd or recovery cd for home?

Basically all you need to do is to format the partition/drive that xp pro was installed on to get rid of it - start xp home, go to my computer, highlight and rightclick the drive xp pro is on, then click on format. Finally insert your xp home cd and boot to the recovery console. Once there just type fixmbr and it should take care of your dual boot screen.

While playing Battlefield 2142, my audio on the headset (Cyber Acoustics?) began to mess up

Now I have low sound even at maximum volume, and when I play music it fades in and out, making strange changes. However when I change to balance to one side it works perfectly, and if I do a speaker test it sounds fine. Earlier I listened to my speakers (Realtek) and they were fine, but later on they started to have the same effect.
I temporarily fixed both headset and speakers by rolling back my sound drivers and restarting the computer. But right now only my speakers are good. Now when I play music on my headset, it switches from bad to good quality. I'm not sure if the game had anything to do with it.

I don't know what else to call it.

It's a Canon BJC-250, I've had it 4 years, (this is the 2nd PC it's used with) and it's occasionally done this. Can't seem to pinpoint when and why.

Every now and then, usually in the middle of printing, but then for awhile after when I try and continue it, it only prints a few little meaningless symbols in the upper left corner or along the top, then rolls the paper through.

I go in to the printer (it still shows what's left of the print job, or the new one starting) and cancel it and start again, and it does it again.

Later, the printer seems to work okay again.

I was just printing 8 pages (it usually prints much more, but I don't usually print things that have too many pages) on the last page it stopped. Said there was a problem and did I want to retry or cancel? I kept retrying and pushing the reset on the printer, and it kept printing out the symbols on top.

I cancelled it and highlighted what I had left and tried to print it (selection) which was only 1/2 a page and it kept doing it. I tried copy pasting it in WordPad (instead of WORD2000 where I had it) and it did the same. (WordPad doesn't have so much, and sometimes it works better).

I saved the 8 pages in WORD and probably later will be able to print the last 1/2 page.

But, just wondered once and for all why it does this?

I have an Intel 865 and and Intel 955 based computers (the motherboards are themselves Intel) that are set up on a gigabit ethernet network. They are using the motherboard-based gigabit ethernet adapters. Are there any settings that I can make to the network adapters to optimize them for speed ? I need to transfer large .ts files between them. I was thinking things like enabling jumbo frames, etc.

Right now I am showing transfer rates of around 18-24 MB per second per my Vice Versa file transfer utility.

Thanks for any thoughts.
 

A:Network adapter optimized for file transfer speed

Jumbo Frames is pretty much the only thing you can set in the NIC configuration. Mind you, you need to enable it on all adapters connected to the network.

I assume you are copying files over Windows shares? You can apply some Windows tweaks to make SMB go faster, but it is just _slow_. You may have better luck using dedicated transfer protocols with no filesystem overhead like FTP. (Or iSCSI of course *g*)

Also, are you sure it is not your hard drives that are the bottleneck? 20MB/s could easily be the limit for a badly fragmented drive.

A couple of weeks ago I developed a problem on my computer at work. This all happened after the IT department switched us from Lotus Notes to Outlook for e-mail. Wordís Normal.dot file would reset itself every day so that all my macros disappeared. Iíve had to import my backup copy several times now when all my macros have vanished at startup. After the first week or two, instead of automatically erasing Normal.dot, Word started giving me a message when I start it that thereís a problem and do I want to create a new Normal.dot, to which I say No, and it all seems fine. The IT department doesnít know why this happened nor do they particularly care, which is why Iíve come here for help.

Iíve found that if I start Word first, Normal.dot works fine and there are no error messages. If I start Outlook first, when I open Word I get an error message that somethingís wrong with Normal.dot and do I want to make a new one.

A:outlook messes up normal.dot

The more I looked around on the net for anything relating to the problem of "Outlook corrupts normal dot" the more information I found on viruses. Have you considered that possibility?

Have you tried deleting the normal.dot you have with all your macros and then running Outlook and then trying Word? If things work correctly doing that, then look to your copy of normal.dot as the culprit rather than Outlook.

It's a place to start, anyway.

This is NOT a request for help, but more along the lines of a guide.
 
OK, here's the situation:
 
Computer:
Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H rev1.1 mobo
Intel i7-3770 (not -K) CPU
32GB Kingston Black 1600 RAM
Antec EA650 PSU
Antec Easy-SATA disk adapter for boot disk
 
The problem:
I have several different boot disks that can be plugged into the Antec adapter, allowing me to change OSs easily. My data disk (D) is also in an Antec adapter, so that can be changed too. The data disk is formatted in NTFS by Win 7.
 
I started with a fresh disk, and clean installed Win 8.0 when it came out. This was done with the data disk unplugged. I then switched back to the win 7 disk, rebooted, and got on with business as usual. No problems with the Win 8 installation, BTW.
 
A few weeks later I started playing with Win 8. I plugged in the Win 8 disk, leaving the data disk in, and rebooted to start Win 8. I allowed some updates then started the process of integrating the data files on D into Win 8. When this was complete, I shut down and switched the boot disk back to Win 7 to get some work done.
 
Upon restart of Win 7, chkdsk went nuts trying to "fix" the data disk. After about 200,000 errors, I finally gave up and rebuilt the disk. ARGGHHH!
 
It turns out I did some things wrong - NONE of which were pointed out by Microsoft - ANYWHERE. First, I did a clean install of Win 8. In and of itself this is not a problem. It only becomes a problem if Win 7 or... Read more

I have FF 3.0.11 and have about 25 bookmarks. It has been working fine. Tonight, I see a little "Yellow exclamation" symbol below on the bottom so I do a Microsoft update. I guess I was installing IE 8.0. But I canceled half way through the download so it never finished.

When I opened up FF, all my bookmarks were gone. They were there 5 minutes ago. I can't go back and do a restore so I just did a fresh Uninstall/Install then it showed up again.

I'm pretty PO'ed that I spent 15 minutes redoing the process again because of this update.

Is this a common occurrence?

You sure it was a MS update blackbeagle? I've never seen that description (Yellow Exclamation) of an MS auto update before.

It could have been an update for Firefox and by cancelling it before finishing you could have corrupted something.

Put the 15 minutes down to the learning curve and now you got the bookmarks back, don't fix what ain't broken!!

please excuse my grammar right now because that is the problem. for some reason i think a virus has messed with my keys and i am unable to use shift or alt.

whenever i use shift its almost like they are being clicked at the same time. for example if i hold shift the underlines will appear in file, edit notepad. i cant use capitals at all and i know the keys haven't been swapped around because i tried using alt and that does not work either.

i have also tried going into language in control panel tried changing languages, moving one from the bottom to top and i tried all that and still get the same result.

i also tried restoring to a previous date and that did not work either, but i was not able to go very far back unfortunately which is possible that this error was occuring then i just did not realize

anyway if you have any ideas please let me know, i appreciate it

So i recently downloaded hamachi on my laptop and my desktop. At first it was working fine and there were no problems. Now the hamachi network connection combines with my network 2Wire707,disables internet access, and makes it local only. When I disable the hamachi network connection, the internet comes back on. This is an on and off thing, sometimes the wireless and hamachi will work with each other but at other times it just doesnt work at all. When it doesnt work, windows offers the solution of rebooting the router, disabling hamachi, or renewing the ip for hamachi. Rebooting works temporarily but the problem eventually occurs again, disabling isnt what im going for, and renewing the ip does absolutely nothing. My wireless connection type is WPA-Personal and my signal is strong. If theres any other information that you need just ask. Thanks!

How fun. Earlier this week, my state experienced some severe weather which ended with a tree on our street falling and the power going out all day. It took a bit longer after that for our cable services to be restored - internet included. Ever since then, my computer in particular seems to be screwing things up for everyone else. When my computer is shut off, every other computer (one laptop, two desktops) in the house has been able to connect to the internet and maintain that connection all day. However, as soon as mine connects, the connection dies within minutes - for everyone.

I thought it could be an IP conflict but every machine in the house is set to obtain their IP automatically.

Interestingly enough, when the XBOX 360 is bridged through my computer it (the xbox) also maintains a connection, albeit a slower one.

I have spent all day trying to figure out what is going on to no avail. I have reset both the router and modem, including hard resets, and I've pinged and pinged and pinged. The same thing seems to happen regardless of whether I am using a wired or wireless connection. Here's what I have:

hello everyone. recently i installed xp on an old computer, and it was working fine for about a week with normal usage. it was a modded version called xp essential 2, with themes and programs pre installed. currently, this same xp is installed on 5 other old computers working without a hitch.

here are the computer specs:
processor: pentium III-S tualatin 1400MHz
ram: 512MB
mobo: qdi advance 10t

now, here is the problem: after about a week, when you restart the computer, upon logon an error message pops up saying something about a missing shared dll file. click ok, it logs on fine. in the start menu, under "all programs" there is another folder called "programs", which is empty. before the problem occurred, you could mouse over this folder with no problem. after the error message, however, when you mouse over it, after the delay of them popping up, when the sub menu should show up, the computer just immediately shuts off with no warning, almost as if i unplugged it. i turned it back on, got the same error message, clicked ok, ran ccleaner registry scan and when it scanned activex and class issues, the computer would switch off, like before. i have reinstalled twice, but after the exact same amount of time, i get the same problem.

I installed the Sims 3 on my computer, started it and it crashed. The screen goes blank. My PC far exceeds the recommendations for playing the game. So I updated my graphics driver and installed the latest patch for the game. Still doesn't work. Not wanting to mess up the PC any more than I did, I uninstalled the game. It works on another PC with the same specs. Then I tried to play Fallout 3 on the PC which the Sims didn't work on. Fallout 3 previously worked on the PC on the highest graphics, now it crashes the same way the Sims did. Once again I patched the game and updated the drivers, but still nothing. Please can someone help me.

Hey everyone, Im new here and I just got vista laptop last sunday 3-22-09. I have searched the forums and have not found an answer to this.

How come every time I uninstall VPN software it messes up my onboard network port and wireless. The software installs just fine and works correctly but i have tried many differnet ones. It says there is hardware problems and ip protocol bindings. I have checked the device manager and it shows they are fine. I have uninstalled and reinstalled in device manager, reinstalled drivers, etc.. The only way to fix it is to do a system restore.

The vpn software is compatible with vista 64 bit so I don't know what else to do..

Thanks in advance

A:Uninstall VPN messes up network drivers

Sounds like it (the VPN client) is simply buggy. The act of uninstalling ought to put back network settings and component bindings to the way they were. Obviously, that's not happening.

Why do you wish to reinstall it again after a system restore fixes you up? Are you trying to remove this thing or to work with it somehow? What's the actual problem you're trying to resolve?

A:Latest Update messes up Firefox

Maybe just coincidence, but the same thing happened to me; except it didn't end with Firefox.
My mouse was double-clicking all over the place! "Annoying" wasn't a strong enough word.

I tried a different mouse and the problem went away.
It's weird that my mouse should give up the ghost at the same time I install the SP1 update, but that seems to be what happened.

I upgraded Firefox to their latest version 4 beta 12; it now seems to handle most of my add-ons.
Probably didn't have to do that, but since the mouse wasn't that old it didn't occur to me to check it right off.

Don't know if this any help to you, but you might try it?

Welcome to TSF!

It sounds like someone told you to go into the msconfig and change some of the settings. Does that sound familiar to you? If it does sound familiar to you then to get back to it you would go to run > type "msconfig". That will open a box that will ask you what you want to have star up when you start your computer.

As for why your sound is gone, I am not sure about that one. You might want to check your device manager and see if there are any yellow "?" next to anything. To get to the device manager you click on the control panel, then system, then it is one of the tabs in there, I forget which one at the moment. But anyway, see if there are any ? next to anything and then post that back up here.

Cheers!
