Re-downloaded XP... now all the drivers are gone

Q: Re-downloaded XP... now all the drivers are gone

I had an issue with my laptop (Dell Inspiron) where this black screen claiming there were no bootable drivers would come up immediately and I couldn't even get into safe mode or anything. I figured the best thing to do would be to reinstall Windows XP and just start from scratch... After scrounging around everywhere I found a dusty Windows XP CD in the house and installed it, but the screen looks way different than the way it is before, like something was amiss with the screen resolution? At first I thought I had downloaded an older version of Windows by mistake as even some of the icons looked different, but after speaking with a more computer-knowledgeable friend he claimed there aren't really any differences between XPs.. And also that when you reinstall XP all your drivers are lost - which probably explains why I have been trying in vain to connect to the internet to no avail. I don't think I have all the necessary installation CDs and am pretty clueless as to what to do. Should I just bring it to a professional and have them redownload everything for me? Thanks in advance.

A: Re-downloaded XP... now all the drivers are gone

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

Simply go to http://support.dell.com and click in the center where it says "Drivers & Downloads" "I'm looking for drivers and downloads"

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

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

Hello, I have just purchased HP 15-ac149tx. I installed Windows 7 32 bit. And, I am looking for all drivers. I searched so much on google but can't find anything.

I downloaded a file with like 700 drivers on it for windows xp vista and 7.
The instructions were pretty simple... just burn insert the cd and then through the control panel choose somthing with hardware...

I dont know how to do it on win7

A:downloaded ISO file with drivers

First of all, where did you download this from? Why did you download? Are you sure it's not a scam or a virus?

Second of all you shouldn't ever need to download such a thing due to Windows 7 being more or less driver sufficient. Even if there is an odd driver missing you should ALWAYS download it directly from the manufacturers website or from the install disk that came with the device.

Just so you are aware, from reading your post I have gathered you have downloaded a dodgy ISO off the internet and intend to burn it to a CD and then do something with it. I have no idea where it's from, what drivers they are, why you would want to do this in the first place or what your/its intentions are.

Please in future can you explain what you want us to do and what exactly you have already done.

Hi All,
First time poster, thanks in advance for your help.

I had to install a new hard drive (WD 320) in my HP Pavilion a510n and I am running XP. I was able to reinstall my HP printer by using the install disk but I have no disk for my Canon D 660U scanner. After multiple tries to download the drivers from the Canon site, I've given up as the install wizard can't find them. I tried burning a disk but that isn't recognized either. I also tried to install an Epson all-in-one and had the same problem. Simply put, with disk, all is well...without, it's a non-starter.
Regards,
Art
 

A:Downloaded drivers won't launch

The Canon drivers have their own setup program. They will not install via the new hardware wizard in Windows. To install it disconnect the USB cable and run the driver setup. It will whirr away doing it's thing and it will eventually ask you to connect the scanner. The drivers will then install just fine. If, for some reason, the program still can't find the scanner (not all that unusual) select "Manual Install". You will then be asked for the port it is connected to. Select "LPT1:" (because the USB port has not been properly created at this point) and let the setup finish. Reboot the machine and attempt to access the scanner. You will be told that it can't find it. At that point you are then prompted to manually find it. Select the newly created "USB0:" port. It will be happy with that and should work as intended now.

It's a long time since I've had to do this so some of the above may not be quite accurate, but the object is to get the system looking at the correct port (USB0: in most cases). We only tell it to install to LPT1: (parallel port) because at that time the USB port is not available. This only happens some times so you probably won't have to go through it.

Recently found DriverMax and it is a good program. But would like to save the drivers so I could use in the future without having to redownload. Does anybody know if the program stores these drivers anywhere on the computer? Thanks in advance.
 

A:DriverMax downloaded Drivers stored on PC

I have 4 desktops - 2 with Windows XP and 2 with Windows 7.

I keep the current drivers for them stored in separate CD-R's.

If something happens to where I need to do a clean reinstall of Windows in one of them, I use its CD-R afterwards to install or update the drivers.

Hello, tech guys. I've been having a problem with my computer and connecting to the internet. I have working wifi (I use it through my phone all day and night) but my computer doesn't pick up, or show, connections at all. I did a little research and discovered that this problem isn't that uncommon(?), and found that under my device manager, under network connections, I had a yellow "!" next to "Ethernet controller" and "SM bus controller".

After reading around, I figured that my computer's drivers got deleted/corrupted and I needed to download the drivers from my manufacturer's website. I tried 3 downloads that were under the chipset and LAN category; this fixed the yellow "!"s but didn't fix the problem. My computer still picks up no internet, even with an Ethernet cable. So after that didn't fix the problem, I tried downloading them all onto my CPU(link to drivers:http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4968#dl), and I still have no connections listed.

Can anyone think of some things that the problem may be?

I downloaded a new torrented version of Windows Vista because i was running Vista Home Premium in French because some idiot said he would fix this laptop for free and he installed a French OS because it's all he had.

Vista installed successfully but everything i had (drivers, documents, program files, etc.) were all placed in a folder located in C: called "Windows.old" and "Windows.old.000".

How can i get all drivers re installed in to this laptop and how can i restore the internet?

If you had read the rules, you know we will not help you with pirated software.

Generally though:

Navigate to your old windows folder and search those folders for drivers.

The good news - if you grab the latest drivers then you will have noticed that GeForce Experience has received updates. If you are up-to date just hit check for updates in GeForce Experience. The bad news, Nvidia is forcing (in the near future) its Game Ready drivers to be downloaded through GeForce Experience. That means the software (which the majority of people feels is bloatware) will become mandatory to be able to download first wave drivers.

Yesterday I had the Windows defender virus on my Desktop computer. I read things online and most places were saying to use rKill, ComboFix, and Malwarebytes. So I followed everything and then the virus was removed (I believe). Less than an hour later a friend of mine went to a website (which I believe got me a virus).
 
Ever since then when my computer boots up the task bar at the bottom of the screen is grey and plain (looks like a task bar from Windows XP maybe), it says that my "Audio service is not running", and I do not even have the bars that show my Wifi signal (I'm assuming that I am missing the driver now?).
 
I do not know if ComboFix is what did this or if I have another virus but I have become so frustrated with this that I figured I would ask for help.

First off, I have Windows XP.

For example, I have an older video card in my system now because I have to send my better card in for warranty repair.

I had upgraded to Direct x 9 and now I want to go back to 8.1. How do I revert or remove Direct x 9?

Also, what is the best way to install video drivers? I heard awhile back you should boot into safe mode or something?

THanks
 

A:What's the BEST way to install video drivers , new Direct X,and remove older drivers?

This method works best for me. First off, I use Norton Ghost 2003 to make an image of my Windows drive. When I make this image, I have already installed WinXP SP1 plus all the latest Windows updates I can get. Also, I have already installed useful and necessary programs like Norton Antivirus 2002, ZoneAlarm Firewall, NoAds, Analog X Cookiewall. I make sure that I don't have any videocard drivers installed. As for Direct X, it's the default one installed when you first install WinXP.

Now that I have the image, I go on and try installing new Direct X versions or new videocard drivers. If something goes wrong and messes up my system or I'm not happy with the performance of the new drivers or Direct X, I use Norton Ghost 2003 to restore my image. By restoring the image, I have everything back--WinXP SP1 + all updates, programs I've installed, etc. The process only takes about 4 minutes compared to reinstalling Windows + all the programs manually (3-5 hours).

With the image backed up to that original point, I try alternative drivers or Direct X files until I find a setting I like.

This is the way I test new Detonator drivers and Direct X files. It's fool-proof and makes me more bold in trying out new stuff.

If you need more background on the benefits of Ghost 2003 and its usage, check out this guide at Radified.com:

To my knowledge, when an OS such as Windows 8.1 is booted, all firmware/bios drivers are replaced by more appropriate OS drivers in the boot drive during start up. I learnt this happens for the latest versions of Windows. Am I right? Do all bios drivers get replaced? Does this happen with the latest versions of OS X as well?

If this is so, then you can discard firmware as suspected of causing problems on a computer that's already booted up. Unless there's a problem that's causing a driver to remain in RAM after boot.

Greetings,

This is a general question for a fresh install of Windows on a computer. Let's say we just completed the installation and we open up Device Manager (we haven't used Windows Update yet). Device Manager shows us that there are - let's say "3" - devices that do not have drivers installed for them. If we visit the computer manufacturers website though, they'll have - let's say "8" - different drivers to download.

If we only install the "3" drivers for the devices that Windows couldn't find drivers for, are we hurting our computing performance by not installing the other "5" drivers that were available on the manufacturers website?

This is just good to know in general, because I've faced this situation with every install of Windows since I began computing with Windows 98. But the reason I'm asking now is because the nincompoops at Acer - despite me entering my serial number - still offer me every possible driver for my model, including drivers for hardware that's not in my computer! Windows - of course - can't identify the hardware, so I'm ready to rip out the last little bit of hair on my head.

Thanks!

A:General Question - Windows Installed Drivers Vs OEM Website Drivers

Some manufacturers offer an utility that helps you identify what stuff you have in the laptop, I think Acer did.
You can also try the hardware-detection program this forum has, this tutorial

Also check the driver version, as some manufacturer list multiple driver versions and you only need the latest (usually, otherwise take the last version that works).

Also, installers of these drivers usually look up the hardware IDs of the hardware and if they don't detect anything that could benefit from them will abort installation. Some instead install anyway and you will have some drivers you won't need, but won't cause any issue as again Win7 knows that they don't match any hardware ID, and will leave them alone.

So, you may have noticed that I am talking of Hardware IDs, that are basically each device's own "calling card" integrated in each device, you can identify the hardware by looking up its hardware ID and then searching it on Google to convert that code into a human-readable device model and brand.

Open device manager, right-click on an unknown device, click on "properties", then go in the "details" tab of its properties panel from Device Manager, click on the drop-down menu and select "Hardware IDs". right-click on the codes you get on the text panel below it and select copy, then search the code on Google to identify the device.

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

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

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

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

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

system running : windows XP professional with sp3

okay, as the title implies, while surfing the internet a tab appeared in the firefox window that said "Updating..." but never showed/displayed anything. After that, I noticed the windows start/tool bar had changed from the XP theme version to the classic version. Then i noticed that there was no network connectivity. When I tried to look up what was wrong, the properties, rename, and delete options have been disabled from the right-click menu.
I received a message that there was attempt to update registry but whatever was done was restored, then my PC reboot.
what I've done so far:
I tried to boot using the windows xp CD but nothing happens. Windows eventually boots up, but I don't get any options to run repair or anything.
Used CA anti-virus for scan and found nothing (did this again in safe mode and still found nothing)
I did a search to see if I could find what was modified, it shows that all user accounts including a Helpassist?? account have been updated in some form or fashion so i don't know what else to do

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

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

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

Hello. I downloaded the new sp3 update yesterday and followed all the instructions and i was ready to restart my computer. When i did, everything went fine until after the loading screen it gave me a blue error screen. Since i needed the computer in working order, I used a pc recovery tool (pressed F10 when it started up) and did a non-destructive recovery which took about 20 minutes. Then after that was done i had to restart and do the windows first start up thing. Then i finally finished and saw that all of my custom features and files were no where to be found! All my applications and games that i downloaded are still in shape, but all of the custom features (like background, WMP playlists, Updates) were all gone. so is there any whay which i can restore my old settings? I need to have all my original settings as soon as i can please .

Thanks

A:I really need help, downloaded SP3...

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

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

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

Hello and welcome to BleepingComputer I don't see any malware there.Some points:Do you have a bought license for Norton? Or did you get it for free? The reason I'm asking is, it's a really heavy app for an antivirus. You can install a better antivirus that's waaaay lighter and easier for the computer, and takes less ram and actually is more efficient too.So, I recommend uninstalling Symantec's products and installing AntiVir (That's the promotion license for AntiVir Premium -- 6 months for free. You can get their free edition here) or Avast! instead.Another valid point: when did you install Service Pack 3? There has been several flaws with it.. Some people have really bad problems with SP3, I seem to be one of the lucky ones with no issues. Did you notice the problems after installing it?Also have a read through THIS TOPIC.Finally.....Click Start >> Run and paste in:"%userprofile%\desktop\dss.exe" /daftClick OK.Click OK to the prompt from Deckard's System Scanner.Click Scan.Checkmark every entry found.Click Fix.Let me know how you get on.

Hello all!
I'll try to explain my problem.
Last week I tried to update my ati 5870 drivers with the latest 10.11. I had 10.9 so far so good.
My problem is that with these drivers I got this message from windows : display drivers have stop responding and they've been recoveres (or something similar).
Same happened with drivers 10.10.
I had to roll back to drivers 10.9 and everything still runs fine.
I'm a bit sad since my computer is brand new (built it in august 2010), no overclock, nothing strange installed, and mostly used for World of Warcraft gaming. I like to keep my computer clean and I'm not used to test or stress or overclok it, but just to play my fav game.
Temperatures are more than fine checked everything...

My overall system :

6 giga ram corsair
vga ATI Gigabyte HD 5870
SSD HD with WIN 7 64 Pro
Raptor HD with only World of Warcraft installed
1 tera HD for storage

My system runs fine with these drivers 10.9, but I'd like to keep it update also for the online game which is constantly updating to newer versions.

I kindly ask you to give me a solution to this issue of mine that is preventing me from sleeping....

New drivers are released to fix problems. they arent any faster, or better. Sometimes when they fix one problem they create another so why the urgent need to be on 10.11? Might be slower or not work at all

I tried to install [email protected] on a few Toshiba laptops, but it needs a newer Catalyst driver than the latest available on Toshiba's website (their drivers not being updated since March). This page said that "Some OEM and some laptop vendors modify the Catalyst drivers that ship with their cards" and recommends just downloading from ATI's site. Is there any technical disadvantage or pitfall in doing that if the driver's custom? I'm guessing it would be unsupported by Toshiba, at least.
 

A:OEM-provided drivers versus vanilla graphics drivers?

Be sure to read the release notes for the driver and make certain that it supports your model. If not, look in the archives and find an older one.

Usually, the standard ATI driver will work on an OEM machine. It's not unusual for the manufacturer's site to post only the driver they shipped with the machine. But you can always roll back if it does not work as desired (an option in Device Manager).

S"hould you", that is up to you, but the Intel drivers are the best for your computer. If you decide to change your drivers, start with a system restore point.

The problem – I have a PCI ADSL Interface Device which runs my internet. If I install the drivers for my mobo then I can’t fully set up my internet connection hence at the moment I have no mobo drivers installed. Conversely I can have the mobo drivers but no internet. The system is running OK but obviously I have no on-board sound, multimedia, Qfan etc, etc.

Having issues with RAID0 array being detected by Windows7 Ultimate x64 as SCSI. Apparently these drivers are the 'default' drivers that install when the RAID array is initialized. There is no option at this point to install other drivers instead.

Using DeviceManager, there is an option to 'update drivers', and regardless of the method chosen, even selecting the file for a previously-downloaded set of drivers, Windows7 always comes back with a message of "Windows has determined that the best drivers for your system are already installed". Considering that SCSI drivers are the OLDEST ones out there, and actual SCSI devices are becoming rarer and rarer, how is it that these drivers cannot be replaced with more current and more applicable drivers?

Does anyone know of a usable workaround to install non-SCSI drivers to replace the default ones?

Thanks in advance!

A:Replacing SCSI storage drivers with IDE or SATA drivers

If this is for the motherboard listed in your specs, you need to install the AMD RAID driver,

Can you get it going any way at all - preferably in Safe Mode? If it fires up, hit Fuinction 8 and select the option to disable automatic restart on system failure. That should leave a blue screen error message on for long enough to read it. If you can go all the way to Safe Mode or Safe Mode with Networking, see what the Event Viewer has to say in Control Panel>Administrative Tools.

Ever since like 3 days ago the laptop computer has been REALLY slow. IE doesn't even open up anyone (just white screen).
It takes 10minutes when I turn on the computer just to be able to click on start.
A lot of error messages asking me to fix this and that keep coming up (and they are not in the form of a pop up) They look like real windows messages.
here is my HTJ log

Thank you for your time.

Now, I have Windows Vista, but its obviously still being affected. I keep getting pop-ups for fake spyware-removal programs, and it's so obvious they're fake that it's not even funny. It also changes my homepage to http://iexplorerpage.com/. I didn't "click this balloon to download official security software" because I'm too smart for that old gag (Although not smart enough to avoid getting this virus in the first place). So first thing that comes to my mind is "Search for it on google". I found another topic on this site which said to get HijackThis and post what the log says. So here it is.

A:cant open anything that is downloaded

Koushal,

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

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

Recently - I've been having a strange problem. when I download a photo or image, or even capture a screen shot and save it to a folder, I cannot see it in that folder. I originally thought i had not hit save properly or not saved a file that I thought I had - but when i tried to re download an image or capture it again and name it the same thing - I got a message saying there was already a file by that name in the folder.

I have tried ensuring all hidden files are shown, and refreshed the window to no avail. but when i restart the computer, I am able to see the files in the folder as the should have been displayed all along. also confusing - when i look in the folder after saving...say if I've saved 12 images into the folder from the net or screen capture, but the folder is only displaying 1 image - it was say the folder only contains one image...

how can i fix this so i do not need to reboot every time i want to see newly created images?

A:Can't See Downloaded Files

Sounds like a view issue on the folder itself, to be honest.

I recently installed Real Player. Since then, when downloading a .mp3 file in Internet Explorer, once the File Download box pops up, the filename is changed to .mpga format. If I just highlight the download link, the file will be named as .mp3. Also, I uninstalled Real Player, and this doesn't seem to have fixed the problem. Any ideas? I don't want to have to keep renaming or converting files every time I download an mp3.. I'm really looking for a solution to the entire problem so that they'll download as mp3's again. Thanks in advance for all your help!

A:Downloaded mp3 to mpga in IE6

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hi everyone - hope this is posted in the right area

I am trying to download a file from this page -

http://www.futuresmag.com/industry/downloads/downloads.html

when I click on the blue text of my choice, a box pops up asking me whether I want to open it from its present location or save it to disk. If I choose open it, a box comes up showing the download in process - at the end, I get a WinZip box, which says that this is an 'evaluation copy' and asks me what I want to do - agree to the evaluation conditions, quit, or get ordering info. I click agree, and I get a Winzip Wizard. I start trying to click my way through this process - I get screens like - 'Would you like to Unzip or Install from optr_por[1].zip' (I say yes) and then "Click now to unzip to selected folder, C:/unzipped/optf_por[1]. I say yes - a box comes up which says the files have been successfully unzipped to this location, and then a Windows Folder called TEMP pops up with an file inside it - the file is a Winzip icon, and seems to be the file I have just downloaded - it is called "optf por"....

Seems good so far. Then I click on it, hoping to see the document I have attempted to download. But I get a small box that says 'WinZip self extractor' at the top, and which says 'To Unzip all files in optf_por.exe to the specified folder, press the unzip button'. The specified folder is C:/WINNT/TEMP. I press Unzip and... a tiny box comes up which shows the p... Read more

A:where is my downloaded file?

mset
It can be confusing trying to keep track of where downloaded programs unzip to especially using winzip. I think your first step should be to clean out the default folder winnt temp. I don't believe there is anything needed there but just to be on the safe side don't delete anything from the recycle bin until you're sure you can reboot and run programs without error messages. Next instead of letting the program run itself without installing on your hard drive create a new floder on the C drive tree or whatever your hard drive letter is and save it to that folder (save to disk, browse, choose that folder C:temp that you created.) That way if it unzips to the winnt folder it should be the only program in there, plus you have the original download on your computer so you won't have to keep downloading each time . As to what program to use to open the file that depends on what kind of program it is. Good luck

Ive always tried to keep things updated and drivers have been a real pain.
Should a new laptop already need driver updates? How do i know when a driver needs
updating?

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

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

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

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

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

Alright, so, firstly, I know nothing about computers, but I was on MSN messenger, and got one of those infected "hey, is this you" followed by some sort of link messages, and stupid me, I clicked and accepted. I've been reading forums, but I don't get what to do, I've done some research, and I'm thinking it's a trojan thingy, and a leap virus, because once I downloaded it, I automatically sent it to everyone on my contact list, and an hour later, my computer automatically restarted. So for days now, I've been trying to fix it, and I think I know the file it's in, or at least close (C:/system32 hosts, or smss), the problem is, the Hijackthis scan, skips that folder, probably because the thing controls my computer, and, If I try delete related files, it says that I need permission to do so, yet I'm on the administrative account, so I guess if anyone know's what ever is going on, that would be awesome.

I started having problems with my computer a couple of days ago, it started with an internet screen popping up saying HTTP 404 ERROR considering i wasn't even on the internet became a reason for concern. Since my free version that came with this computer that i bought was done i needed to try and find something else. I was recommended to goggle for spybot search and destroy the free version and when i did this a lot of searches came up so i decided to try the first one with that one telling me after i had downloaded it that i needed to pay in order to fix the problems...well i was not willing to do this so instead i decided to try a different one well needless to say the same thing kept happening to me i continued to download different ones with each saying the same thing i needed to pay! well then my computer started just randomly popping up screens every few seconds. I uninstalled most everything that i downloaded but somehow it was stilling popping screens up at me. I now have this 'system security' that i downloaded but it does not give me an option to uninstall, and my computer is still unprotected. I guess my question is Can you help me?

Last nite something tried downloading to my system. I THOUGHT I denied it permission, but immediately A squared IDE started popping alerts whenever I opened any browsers or Outlook Express. (Since I thought I had denied it access to download, I didnt really pay attention to the warning).

So far nothing has tried accessing the internet (i.e., no Zone Alarm requests) but I do assume something "wrong" is here. Here is my Hijackthis log:

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

I know you are saying he made an error ..... I've seen that dialogue box 1000 times the last 3 months and I know what I clicked on. I don't like Win 8.5 and I'll never trust those people again. I became so angry trying to stop that I damaged the computer (the plastic crap they refer to as a case has no decent access .... it's your computer and access should be easy).
The display is fine but is now upside down ..... does anyone have a fix for this ? 2) How do I get this unwanted crap off my computer (it took me over 4 months to get my event record even close to not looking like a Christmas tree with no help from MS or HP .... I don't want to go thru that BS again ) and restore it back to Win 8.5 ??

Hello,

It sounds like you didn't uncheck the optional "Upgrade to Windows 10" update before manually selecting to install available updates.

You can use the method in the tutorial below to go back to the previous Windows.

Windows 10 - Go Back to Previous Windows - Windows 10 Forums

Once you are back to Windows 8.1, you can use the tutorials below to disable the "Upgrade to Windows 10" update and GWX icon.

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

A:Downloaded virus, and I've tried everything to get rid of it.

Hi,

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

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

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

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

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

Regards,
Golden

Hello. Thank you for offering this forum of help! I have run Malwarebytes, Spybot, spyware doc, and Auslogics.

Downloaded new IE 9 yesterday. Click on IE 9 icon but IE 9 does not start. I read that one problem may be registry, missing files from older IE, or spyware, so saw using Hijack This as a possible option. I notice right at the start it states "MSIE: Unable to get Internet Explorer version!"

Thank you for any suggestions you can offer. I really appreciate your knowledge because I'd love to use IE 9.

Okay, somebody please correct me if I'm wrong. My main goal is I want to burn avi files onto blank DVDs files I have on my computer. If I'm not mistaken, based on all the information I've read from lots of people on this site, I assume the following is correct, but if not, somebody with experience in this subject please help!
1. i have a downloaded .avi movie from the internet around 700,000Kb or so
2. I'm thinking that I'm supposed to use VirtualDub to capture and make a file of JUST the audio from the file and make it a .WAV
3. Then I use TMPGEnc to convert ONLY the video of the original downloaded file to mpeg-2.
4. Now I'm confused. Somehow or another I guess I'm supposed to fuse the two separate files together and "shrink" the newly created mpeg-2 file. And since the complete file is going to be really big, do I have to "compress" it somehow so it will fit onto the standard DVD+R? And can I do all this with Ulead Movie Factory 2E? That's the program that came with my DVD burner.
5. If I'm leaving something out PLEASE tell me, folks! You all have helped me every time in the past, and I am really grateful for that.
