Recently, using FF on my Vista Ultimate 32 bit computer, I notices popup ads from, when I visited a web page. The pop ups appeared if I left OR right clicked on a text area. The mouse pointer remained a pointer; had not changed to hand with extended index finger.

I verified that FF's popup blocker is / was on. I removed all exceptions & restarted the PC. Same problem. I viewed the page source, searched for zedo and found it related to java script.

I turned off Java, rebooted & the problem went away.

This did NOT occur using IE 7.

I stopped the popups by using the modified hosts file from Because the .bat procedure used by the mvps author to replace the hosts file failed in the past, I copied the contents of the modified hosts from & pasted the contents into my hosts file, rebooted & success occurred. I had re-enabled java in FF.

I hope this information is useful to anyone else who encounters the phenomenon.

Firefox's popup blocker does not block all popups, although it does its best. The best way to block ads and the rest of the popups would be to use the Firefox AdBlock Plus extension.

Also, Java is not the same thing as Javascript. They are completely different, and I'm assuming you disabled JavaScript, not Java. However, you don't want to completely disable JavaScript because almost every modern website uses it in some way or another. AdBlock Plus should block the ads, but you can also use NoScript to block all JavaScript on a per-site basis.

Microsoft? Narrator does not read information from the command line properly. This issue may also affect non-Microsoft screen reader applications.

To correct this, always run the command prompt with administrator privileges.

Apple iTunes

This issue only applies to 64-bit editions of Windows 7.

If you attempt to download and install Apple iTunes, the 32-bit version will be installed instead of the 64-bit version. This will prevent syncing with iPhone.

To avoid this, install the 64-bit version from the following location: iTunes 8.0.2 for Windows Vista 64-bit.

When you attempt to restore files backed up from a Windows 7 computer to a Windows Vista? computer using the Restore wizard on the Windows Vista computer, the restoration fails.

To work around this, in the location where the backup file is stored, locate the Mediaid.bin file, which is in inside a directory that has the same name as the computer.

My Windows Mail program suddenly stopped sending and receiving messages. The following error message popped up: "Account: 'Windows Mail', Server: 'pop3, Server Response: ERR An authentication mechanism MUST be entered,' Port: 110, Secure (SSL): No, Server Error: 0x800ccc90, Error Number: 0x800ccc18"

I have tried to trouble shoot settings. Everything appears to be correct per my internet provider. My operating system is Vista; I have been using Windows Mail for several years with no problem. Nothing has changed with my computer re: recent updates or new programs.

What is an "authentication mechanism" and how do I set/respond to the error issue? Any available help would be greatly appreciated! (FYI I'm not a computer techie-type so simple-minded (referring to me of course!!!) direction would be especially appreciated! Thank you!!!

I have a HP Deskjet 3745 I've had for a year and it keeps getting locked up on the left side and says mechanism error cradle can't move. I can print a test page but when it gets to the bottom of the page thats when it gets locked up. I try to align it but Its printing sideways like the cradle is out of alignment but its screwed in tight plus the lines are overlapping each other like theres a problem with the ink. The ink has 75% left. I sold it and took it over there one day after work so it sat in my car so I think maybe the heat inside the car may have did something. The lady I sold it to just moved and I think they may have dropped it cause theres a black scuff mark on the corner but she said she didn't. I had to give her money back so now I'm left with a broken printer.

My mouse's right click is not functioning properly. When I press down the right mouse button, nothing happens, but when I release the button it seems to perform right mouse down and right mouse up at the same time. I figured this out through Browser Mouse Event Test Page. I have tried switching to a different mouse, but it still has the same issue. Everything else about my mouse seems to be fine(left click, movement, ect.). This makes me unable to hold down the right mouse button, which is required in most games.

Hello Members, just a quick question please
Will i be able to upgrade from Windows 8 Release Preview, to the Windows 8 final release, and when i mean the term upgrade, i'm talking any programs,files and settings i may have installed while using the Win 8 'Release Preview'.

I have searched this forum, aswell as other forums, i've also look at the Microsoft Windows 8 Release Preview 'frequently asked questions', but can't find clarity to this specific answer, does anyone know the answer please?

I havn't installed Win8 RP to my computer (Dell Inspiron 2320) a yet, so this issues what's holding me back.

Also what runs better, a Windows 7 to Windows 8 upgrade install (same drive partition)?, or, a dual boot with Windows 7 on it's original partition and Windows 8 on it own partition but still on the same hard drive, the reason i asked is that i gather in creating a new partition for Windows 8, the Windows 7 partition need to be compacted down, is there a performance impact to either OS?

Any info, or opinions would be great.


A:Will i be able to upgrade Windows 8 Release Prev to the final release

Welcome to the EightForums! liviococcia

Once the finished retail product is available when launched you would need to perform a clean install as with any previous version of Windows. The backup tools however may allow you to preserve and restore user files and settings without too much problem.

The final details in the "pudding" so to speak will be known once the RTM(Release To Manufacturers) is seen. Clean installs are always the preferred option over upgrading over a previous version which can often carry some problems along with the upgrade.

With the Windows Easy Transfer option with 7 once all programs were back on a clean install the restoration of the backup made with that option was found to restore the files and settings with 7. I expect the same should be seen with 8 as well.

Hi Team,
May I know how does windows time works?
During system boot up, after BIOS transfers the ownership to windows, does windows get the time value from CMOS RTC?
After that, how does windows time tick-tock? using PCH's HPET(High Precision Event Timer) or CPU's TSC(Time Stamp Counter)?
Does any interrupt or events will cause windows time pause? such as SMI?
Any documents from windows to explain this mechanism.
If I have to debug an issue relative with windows time, any way to monitor this time during system boot up?
it is a data structure or run time register reading or something else?

Good morning.
I'm a third year university student and for one of my assignments, I am to write a research report based on the question 'Are Passwords an Effective Security Mechanism'. I have focused the research on biometric and traditional (alphanumeric combination) passwords. Also, I am required to obtain some primary research which can be argued against my secondary research to form some sort of conclusion, and to do this, I have decided that a questionnaire is the perfect solution.
I would appreciate it if some of you would take the opportunity to complete my questionnaire as you will be helping me out a lot. It will take no more than 2 minutes to complete. Also, I would be interested in hearing your thoughts and opinions on biometric and traditional passwords, regarding their security.
The survey can be found here -

A:Are Passwords an Effective Security Mechanism

The user is the first and last line of defense. Strong passwords can be effective security measure. Unfortunately, it has been proven time and again that the user is a more substantial factor (weakest link) in security than the architecture of the operating system or installed protection software. Security is all about layers, and not depending on any one technology or approach to detect or save you from the latest threats. The most important layer in that security defense? You!

i just bought a new computer, and assembled it.
everything works great, except that whenever i unplug the computer and then plug it back, i cant turn it back on again for a while.
No lights, no response, like its not in the socket at all. only after a few minutes of being unplugged it lets me turn it on again.
It was very anooying when i assembled the system, and had to wait for a while between adding stuff.
It really pissed me off when i had a power failure in my house for a second, and couldn't use my computer for about 20 minutes later.

My email client, desktop program PostBox (for Win) has been slowed since I installed BD TS2016 (I'm quite sure this is the reason as it was very fast before, and slowed immediately after...)

I also run WebRoot AV (which does not scan email as per their documentation) and HitmanAlertPro (which could also be affecting my email client, but I uninstalled it to test this somewhat small chance given its just an anti-exploit, and it doesn't seem to have affected it, the client is still slow).

1. I would LIKE BD to scan my email as of course having AV w/o scanning email could in many ways be pointless given email can be a deadly vector for heavy malware.

2. But I don't want my client to be slow. It's not horrible, and I suppose I could tolerate it (basically deleting messages, loading new messages, and the program responsiveness overall, is a bit sluggish compared with its normal instantaneous response)

3. Is there a way to configure email scanning differently? Or should the program NOT be slowing my client noticeably in general, and is this behavior indicative of something being wrong?

I'm sure BD users will be able to comment on whether it slows their email or not given they use a desktop client like Outlook, Postbox, Thunderbird, etc.


A:BitDefender Email Scanning Mechanism? Performance Issues w/ email Client

In the past I used BD TS exclusively with OutLook as my e-mail client and had no such issues, have you tried, or open to try switching clients to see if it's something about Postbox that BD TS disagrees with ?

I did my costings based on USD to AUD = $1200 aprox. I checked some of these parts from Australian places and it would cost around $1500. I think I can handle that - a bit more then I wanted, but I think with these parts, well worth it.

Thank you for your patience. I will be helping you deal with the issues raised in your log from this point onwards

Before we start jumping into things, here is a quick basic note which I mention to everyone. The fix which I have provided for you is for this computer only, it should not be used on any other computer. Each fix is tailor made for the specific task in hand. If for some reason you have system restore disabled, then please re-enable it before proceeding, an infected restore is better than none. Please read through the fix first and set enough time aside to complete the task in one session. If there is anything you feel needs clarification then please ask - do not guess! Thanks.

If this is a computer from a work place then please advise your IT department of the concerning issues before commencing past this point.

Please follow these directions in the order they are set out for you.

I do not see any anti virus detection software present on your computer.
Without a resident virus checker you are leaving yourself wide open to infection, this in turn would render the fix useless. Before proceeding further, please download, install and update an anti virus solution. A good free anti virus software to start with is AntiVir? or as an alternative try AVG Free Edition

Hi guys,

SP2 is out, and its in my critical downloads thing. Now call me a fool, but i decided NOT to turn on Auto updates, mainly becuase i want to find out what sort of bugs there will be, wait for bug fixes and see how it affects systems.

There are many reason to download it, but i'm interested in the reasons not to. If the pros really do outweigh the cons, then i may get it, but i'm not about to install something which will have a potentially HUGE impact on my (newly installed, stable) system.

Before i go download it i'd like to hear from those that have already done so, what sort of problems they are having, whethere the changes are good, how to use setup the firewall correctly etc.

I currently use Norton SystemWorks Pro for virus protection and have Zone Alarm Pro installed for a firewall. Will either of these be affected by SP2 and how? i play online games a lot will i have to expect an increase in ping? anyone know what games will need patches to work/ how to setup the firewall to allow them to conenct? NB: I'm on a DSL connection through a router.

Oh, any anyone with any links to any sites/ or willing to lost with a list of new processes i should kill, please let me know, thanks

I manage 4 computers at home, none of which will get SP2 utill i can be assured it wont "scew them up" if you understand. As much as i like fixing computer problems, i prefer to prevent them too, that way i get more time to do other stuf.

I have my computer setup also not to autodownload, very smart thing to do. I have read some horror stories online about service pack 2. Though I had the same concerns you do, I downloaded it anyway. I had a small problem with my wirless network, computers not getting valid Ip's from the router, Nobody I talked to really helped, including Linksys or Microsoft. It was a rather simple fix though. I heard that Norton does have compatibility issues with service pack 2 though I didnt experience any. Games are running fine! Graphics etc... It does take slightly longer for windows to boot up. I have not really run into many problems. My advice for you is to wait! Although Service pack2 does offer alot of features and better security. It is not critical that you have it, although Microsoft will tell you different.

I got to be an Office 2010 TPer, and right after they launched it I sent MS feedback about some stuff. Also added - "I know no one there is going to read this but here's my feedback...." Not only did I get an email from someone at MS who said, "Yes, we actually read the feedback", I think they implemented one of my suggestions. Could not freaking believe it. The new feature was for OneNote, to be able to right click and paste more than just text, like photos and other files, which you could not do in 2007.

Before I get carried away with this, let me say that hypothetical influencing a right-click for anything isn't the grandest thing on the planet. Nevertheless, it would be kinda cool to be able to say such a thing when you're dealing with a behemoth like MS.

I assume I could not have been the only TPer who suggested this, and/or maybe MS was planning it all along. Plus even though I did not notice the new right-click options before I sent feedback, there's always the possibility I missed it. But I could have sworn they were not there because it was one of the first 2010 changes I looked for. It was soon after my feedback (I don't even think it was more than a day) that I saw the new right-click paste options. The email from MS didn't say whether they made the change because of feedback, only thing it said was that they read it.

OK, so:
1.) Did MS make changes to office TP via Windows Update like they did with 7 beta? Can't go back and check because I ... Read more

A:How much does MS consider user feedback?

You can interact with their developers on Technet forums, or on the specific blogs for their projects like Win7. They give attention to things which interest them and will often start a dialogue.

Even the excellent MS tech support gave me unbelieveable amounts of time (sometimes overnights) with the purchase of a single retail copy of XP, teaching me clean reinstalls, overcoming bloatware, optimization, virus hunting, debugging, and much more for several years' time - all for $99!

What has most impressed me in my experience with MS is how they interact with learning, prize it, nurture it. They have been some of my best teachers.

So it really shouldnt be a surprise that they finally hit it so right with what may be the greatest creation since the computer itself, Windows 7. But I'm still dazzled.

For a year or more now i have had the same problem with my audio equipment. Whether i use headphones and the mic attached to them, whether i use desktop speakers and a stationary mic, I allways run in to the same problem: Whatever sound i hear through either my headphones or my speakers gets transmited through my mic. It isnt a loop because my mic is facing my speakers or anything like that because even if i unplug my speakers and just talk on my mic, the people at the other end of msn tell me they can hear themselves. Now i dont know if what i wrote is particularly clear but if you need any more information or if you would like me to run some tests i would be more than happy as this problem is starting to get quite annoying.

Secondly, can you try going into Start>Run>type: dxdiag, hit Enter and run the various input and output sound tests there, looking carefully (changing) at the hardware acceleration you have set and the "Notes" section for any mentioned conflicts.

Lastly, which soundcard/motherboard do you have?

Cooling: Nanoxia Deep Silence 120mm Ultra-Quiet
Hard Drive: Western Digital Blue WD10EZEX 1TB

Also, could someone tell me what performance I can expect from this when playing games?

A:PC uild feedback and help please

I assume you intend to play games with this system.

First thing I see is the WD blue drive. The blue series is not a performance hd; if you have to have a mech hd, then go with a black series drive OR a raptor drive. A much better option would be a ssd drive for the system drive and a WD black drive for backups, data, etc.

As for a mb, I use either asus or gigabyte boards; either one with the z97 chipset will be fine.

Hello all, i'm afraid i'm in need of some professional help.
I have searched the forum for an answer but nobody seems to have had this exact prob.
I have a sound coming through my speakers which sounds like a fast morse code type noise and this sound seems to change with the computers hard drive, eg when the hard drive speeds up the sound changes. I used to have this sound when i first had the computer at which time i was using onboard sound, but then i brought an edirol FA-66 which seemed to fix the problem but i've just brought a pair of KRK VXT4's speakers and the sound is back! The sound even occours when the volume it turned down and when its turned up it doesnt get any louder, its just a constant din. Another abnoramality is the sound doesnt come through the headphones only through the speakers and these sennheiser headphone should match these speakers in quality. I've tried all the usual fix's like unplugging but nothing seems to help.
Does anyone have any idea of what this feedback is and how it can be fixed?

Ref. Combofix
I'm fine with this capable program clearing the temp directories. That would be "\tmp" and "\temp".
But it should be mentioned in the documents and ref materials that Combofix will also treat
"\x" as a temp directory and CLEAR IT. Perhaps others? I don't know. It should be clearly delineated behavior.
This hidden feature wiped 50GB of data I was using during an ISP switch. It will take days to recover.
It spent over six hours scanning the files and then promply erased them all.
Yes, I understand "Don't use the program unless directed to" or some such. But that is no cover for
an omission of functionallity this large. Check the forum logs for this to be mentioned. I've not seen it.
The only temp directories-folders are "\tmp" and "\temp" as set in the environmental variables.
Thanks for reading..
(60K line log file of deletes.. sigh.)
It should also be noted that when you run ComboFix it will automatically delete files from the following locations:
Windows Recycle Bin
Temporary Internet Files
Temp Folder

A:Joined for feedback

Your feedback is noted.I can tell you that temp folders are a common hiding place for malware. I would like to say more but all discussions about it works, the routines it performs, what it can or cannot do, what the log results mean, future plans, development, etc, are in private areas not for the general public to read. Why? Safeguarding ComboFix from malware writers is necessary and important so that we can continue to use it without attackers having knowledge how to defeat it. Everything we discuss can be read by the bad guys. Yes, they read these forum topics looking for clues (knowledge) on how to circumvent our tools and removal techniques. We don't want to provide any information they can use against us so we deliberately do not provide specific information on the specific inner workings of our tools and how we use them in areas where attackers can see that information. As such, our discussion in public areas is limited and sometimes may appear vague or not fully address a specific question so it should not be taken personal.

Is there a place that we can leave feedback or requests for the ATA product?

There are a few things i would like to see changed.  

1.  Alerting
We get alerts during backup windows that the ATA cant keep up but it doesn't seem to have anything to do with CPU or RAM.  In addition, we have no users in the system at that time so i find it very hard to believe
that this is true.  I would like to set time windows where we can exclude these alerts or maybe thresholds where if it is seeing that for 5 minutes, 10 minutes etc.
2.  Email Audience
I would like to be able to say these types of emails go to this distribution list and those go to another so that we keep the number of alerts the team gets down a bit.  
3.  Suspicious Activity
When we get an alert warning of suspicious activity and click the link to take a look, the first thing you have to do is answer whether it is normal or not, but we cant click the link to see the suspicious activity unless
we open the excel file in the email.  This should be adjusted.

Hi all. Recently (within the past 2 weeks) I have started to have the following problem: I am getting feedback thru my speakers from my microphone. As in, when I talk, my voice comes out the speakers. It does not reproducce the words clearly, just mumbles. If you bump the mic it causes a thump thru the speakers. I have tried muting the microphone in the playback controls and all that happens is I can't be heard on the other end. If I turn down the volume on the record side nothing happens. I have tried muting and desreasing volumes of all the other components in both playback and recording and nothing changes the feedback. If I turn the microphone boost off that helps alot, but then the people on the other end can't hear me at all. I am having the same problem on 2 computers. My main is a Pentium 4 3.2 with 2gig ram, WinXP home service pack 2, SoundBlaster Live! and a generic handsfree microphone. My other system is a Semprom 2600 not overclocked, 1.5gig ram, WinXP home service pack 2, SoundBlaster Audigy 2, Altec Lansing headphones/microphone combo.

If anyone has any possible solutions to this issue, any help would be much appreciated.

Take a look into your Sounds and multimedia options under Control Panel to see if the Mixing check box is checked. This is the most common problem. You'll just have to check the Microphone box. (within record settings, not playback)..

Anyway straight to the point, I am currently using a Plantronics headset with 2x 3.5mm jacks, I am running it through a usb adapter so taht i can still run music through my speakers. The problem I am noticing is that there is power feedback coming into the headset.

I know it is power related feedback as when i move my usb mouse in different directions the frequency of the feedback changes. So does anyone have an easy solution for this, i would prefer to lose the adapter all together. I originally used the onboard sound card to achieve me goals, but my creative card has taken to hiding the onboard audio; can't even be seen in device manager. Is there a way to enable it.

I have a pair of Razer Moray headphones running through a Razer Lycosa Keybaord which is connected into the back of a PCI sound card. I know a fair bit about computers, but I am no wizard.
My issue is this; when nothing is playing, no sound; I get terrible feedback "buzzing". It is continuous until I move my mouse (Also a Razer, not sure if that matters), when I move the mouse, it turns into a beeping sort of sound. It was funny for the first ten seconds, making buzzing songs moving my mouse, but it is now very frustrating. I have tried several other headphones, some I have plugged straight into the PC; which improves it slightly, but my Moray's are my choice headphones, because they sound fantastic besides this feedback.
If anyone knows what it might be, let me know.

Other attempts at fixing I have tried-
Plugged into motherboard sound; feedback is gone, BUT; I wish to use my soundcard as its sound quality is much greater than my Motherboard. In my opinion at least.
I have tried turning off other programs, including anti-virus for 10 seconds to see if it would remove the feedback, no success.
Unplugged different bits of hardware, mouse, Ext. Hd. etc. No success.

Thanks to anyone who provides assistance!

BTW: I use Foobar2000 for my mediaplayer. Not sure if that makes any difference.

PCIe is the future but right now there is very little performance difference between the two . If there is no price difference I would go PCIe just because it will be easier to upgrade two years from now plus yoiu'll have the PCIex1 expansion slot.

Hi I recently got a set of speakers for my new PC. I have only been using headphones on it without a problem but when I plugged the speakers in I get a very bad white noise feedback.

You can still hear the sound so the speakers are working, and when plugged into my phone they work fine whithout the feedback. I am also using beats headphones so I am using the exact same jack to connect the speakers and headphones.

I've tried all solutions I can find and all drivers are up to date, so if anyone has any ideas of what is going wrong I'd be really thankful.

Planning on building a gaming PC since the one I have now is just a mass produced PC you can buy at Best Buy or something..

I don't plan on hand building this PC, because I really don't want anything to go wrong. Are sites like iBUYPOWER and CyberPower reputable places to buy from and decent in price?

I want to be able to play games like Brink and BC2 on 1650x1080 with high settings. The graphics card I have now, nVidia 9600 GT, is kind of old and overheats easily. My price range for the overall PC is under $1700, but I want it more around $1500.

I'm going to list two PCs and their parts. Maybe you guys can tell me if this is part is necessary or if it is even compatible with the other parts.

I'm having issues keeping quality from downloaded AVI and other video files when burning to DVD.

Any hints or suggestions welcomed for software or codec pack combinations.


A:Would appreciate DVD burning feedback

When you download the AVI, is it meeting your quality requirement?

If not, look elsewhere for the AVI's. If it is, Then the problem must be in the burning. Depending on what you are using to burn the DVD's, there should be settings to burn at different speeds. Generally the slower the speed you select, the better quality the DVD will be.

Hi All I have a emachines T3882. I know a entry level system. I am attempting to hook up my computer to my stereo for music playback. Problem is there is a hum or feedback noise. I know it's my system as I have a second computer that I hooked up in the same manner with no issues. I even tried a new sound card same issue. The audio is on board. Drivers are good as I do get sound from my very cheap desktop speakers. Any suggestions would be a great help as this is very frustrating to me.

Thank You

I am puzzled about how the feedback system works. The feedback buttons are everywhere and working fine even when there is no net connection but my doubt is whether it is really reaching the authorities since there is no auto or other response from microsoft.

Hello Param,

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

Haven't ever tried it without a net connection, but when I use it I see a spike in upload bits, so am assuming they're getting it. MS says it has received lots of feedback though.

Hope you enjoy your stay.

Just curious if any one else has been sending feedback to MS about issues they come up with? This may be Tin Foil Hat territory, but will sending feedback 'flag' you with MS?

Hi guys,

Basically I'm making some let's play YT vids and I have a Roccat Kave 5.1 SS headset. I get annoying feedback when I speak through the mic.

I used to use the same mic as Tobuscus the Yt'er but still I got feedback.

I'll list what I've already tried..

- Turning the Decibels (Making mic recording output louder but creates unnecessary feedback)
- Recording externally in a different software like Audacity and trying to turn it up (Annoying feedback because of decibels)
- Checked for driver updates etc.
-Same difference in both stereo/5.1 headsets.

My volume is loud enough-ish but it's just the feedback.. Watch this vid and you'll see:


EDIT: And on my sound mixer my headphones are controlled by the overall speakers. Even when I turn the sound down via my head set the sound on the system follows which shouldn't happen.

A:Mic has feedback and really shouldn't..

Bump.. anyone?

I would assume that most racing games made by Microsoft support it, but I don't really know.

A fairly general rule is that racing and flight games have forces, but fps / strategy / role playing do not. - this came from a Logitech site.

This is how it went.

1. Had to do windows update three times before it got them all. I had just done the other day the updates for march. The first update had 8 updates in it. Update number two had one update in it. Update number three had one update in it.

2. Had to do the WGA and did pass.

3. Then the SP1 update showed up in the Window Updates and started the download. Size was about 175.mb.

4. Had to reboot after the install. During windows shut down it stop to do some more installing of the SP1 update. It has 3 stages.

A. Stage one went somewhat fast.
B. Stage two went real slow up to about 12% then went fast and stop and stalled at 100% for some time.
C. Never seen Stage three.

5. Os rebooted and during the restart of windows just before the desktop shows up it started installing Stage three and went somewhat fast. After the desktop came on they was a lot of hard drive activity.

6. The first thing that I seen is that AVG did not restart. I just started it my self and all was good.

Things I seen after install and reboot.
