Q: Downloaded Software Won't Run

I've recently downloaded a couple files. One is a game (from GOG.com), another a BIOS update (from Dell), among others. When trying to open either of the two above, I get the following error message:

"The version of this file is not compatible with the version of Windows you're running. Check your computer's system information to see whether you need an x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit) version of the program, and then contact the software publisher"

Another recently downloaded program gives me a checksum fail type of error message.

I've kept up to date with Microsoft updates, and have tried running them in various compatability modes, but get the same message each time.

Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated, as I am rather significantly tech illiterate. Thanks!

A: Downloaded Software Won't Run

Hello uhohspaghettios and welcome to TSF,

There are certain 32 bit programs, especially binaries, that will not run in a 64 bit environment.

Could you provide me the links to the programs you are attempting to run?

My HJT log says I downloaded pirated software using P2P software. I am using Bear Share. Would this be something within Bear Share showing this to protect themselves or would this be an outside source claiming I've done so. I feel as if I was tricked. I downloaded some game mods/updates, which in turn didn't work. Could this be the culprit?

Hi ..I have got some unique problem I would say. I have recently got a broadband connection.It's working perfect with everything apart from downloading software.I can download music,video,software(does not install). After the downloading the software when I try to install the softwares ,it sometime says corrupt file, some times says cannot extract or sometimes gives NSIS error. But When I use my laptop in my university network it works perfect with any software installation which I download. I tried the all way to make my service provider understand that there is no problem with my laptop as it's working prefect in other networks but they don't want to trust me. What to do. It will be highly appreciable to me if you could find out way.I am completely hopeless now

Many Thanks

A:Can't set up any software which I downloaded

Please supply the following info, exact make and models of the equipment please.

Name of your ISP (Internet Service Provider).
Make and exact model of the broadband modem.
Make and exact model and hardware version of the router (if a separate unit).
Model numbers can usually be obtained from the label on the device.
Connection type, wired or wireless.
If wireless, encryption used, (none, WEP, WPA, or WPA2)
Version and patch level of Windows on all affected machines, i.e. XP (Home or Pro), SP1-SP2-SP3, Vista (Home, Business, Ultimate), etc.
The Internet Browser in use, IE, Firefox, Opera, etc.


Please give an exact description of your problem symptoms, including the exact text of any error messages.


If you're using a wireless connection, have you tried a direct connection with a cable to see if that changes the symptoms?
For wireless issues, have you disabled all encryption on the router to see if you can connect that way?
Have you connected directly to the broadband modem to see if this is a router or modem/ISP issue?
If there are other computers on the same network, are they experiencing the same issue, or do they function normally?


On any affected computer, I'd also like to see this:

Hello there. It seems a compilation of rogue software has been downloaded on my computer. Among the programs it runs are Virus Response Lab 2009 and Antispyware Pro XP. Some security warnings come with instructions to download VirusRemover 2008. It has changed my Internet Explorer homepage into hxxp://ahomepagepark.com/security/xp/ and slows down my internet use. False Windows alerts appear about threats to my computer, and it redirects my internet when I click on Google results. I'm afraid I don't have any more specific information to give unless in answer to a specific question. I have attached the info.txt and gmer.txt files, and my log.txt file is copied below. I thank anyone in advance for the help they can offer.

Hi,
I am not a very tech-savvy person. I need your help. I installed a software for my magnetometer on my laptop.

I was noticing some issues and thought I might have spyware (I just uninstalled my AVG antivirus about a month ago because it was causing crash issues) so I downloaded a free antivirus and removal software. Stupid me was in a hurry and I don't know the name, I just saw that it had the CNet logo and assumed it was legit and haphazardly downloaded it. I think there was a picture of a rhino on it...please tell me this isn't malicious. I rebooted and now cannot get past the "Windows shut down unexpectedly...." and then have the options to boot in safe mode, etc....however, I cannot move the highlight to safe mode, I can't do anything!?! The screen will count down, "start" into Normal mode showing my Compaq screen (where I can not press F2, Esc, or F8), and then it starts all over and just continues to cycle through. I have so many important files, pics, etc., that I will do whatever I can to keep them, just please tell me there is a fix.

I have a Folder which contains a bunch of files which I downloaded from the net. The files are games, installers etc... (software files basically). I have been able to open them quite happily ever since I downloaded them, up until a point recently where everytime I try to do so, I am confronted with an error message that reads:
Cannot open file: it does not appear to be a valid archive.
If you downloaded this file, try downloading the file again.
Now, I know the obvious answer staring me in the face there, is Download the files again...But were talking about quite a large sum of files - and I know that there's solution coz this HAS happened before (can't remember what I did though ). I know I've probably droned on a bit too long as I look up at this incredibly long (and I expect boring) Post, but I can't help it - I'm a little bit wrecked, so give me a break.

The software download came as 4KB html file to desktop, not a zip as most do. Double-clicking it went to a page with a download link, as well as left-side navigation links for Home Page, Customer Service, and all other software available from that site. The address bar showed a C:/documents and Settings\USER\Desktop.xxxx.htm

Hovering pointer over ALL links shows a File///C:/... desktop address with .php extension, even the 'Home Page' link in nav list. Left clicking the 'download software' link brings error that says: can't find "file:/C:///Documents%20and%20Settings/USER/Desktop/downloads/c13eb4626c13090cf3b003e289ff7885/xxxxsetup.exe"

Make sure path or internet address is correct. (xxxx replaces file name).

The assoc'd files d'loaded separately as html files (templates, tutorials, etc.) opened to different page that asked for username and p'word.

I guess the the app files kinda run by themselves when you double click them so it doesn't matter where they are on your computer. I could be wrong though.

However what about the ZIP files? I remember once using the Dell resource CD and it would download some of these ZIP files...but they would put them somewhere in my program files folder. That is why I was willing to use the CD more since it would place these files in the correct place (I mean I'm not going to put them on my desktop for instance).

So where do I put the ZIP files? There are only ZIP and application files.

Thanks.

I reinstalled my OS earlier this week. The installation went very smoothly (Win XP Pro), I managed to get all the patches/packs downloaded and installed although .net framework 1.1 was "twitchy" and I had to uninstall/reinstall it.

When I tried to complete setting up the system with all it's usual utilities, I run into problems.

adobe acrobat reader - it gives an error during download and am unable to complete the download

spybot search & destroy - unable to install downloaded file; says file is corrupt

MSN Live messenger - tried to install directly from site and it says cannot verify signature or something like that and won't install. When I try to install off the download it says unable to install, low memory or invalid cab file

Asus video adapter drivers - downloads but says file is corrupted (2 different drivers)

Some things won't install off CD, I get invalid file, or checksum errors and it's a new dvd drive.

I am using driver updater and it downloads setup and install automatically.
I want to know the link that is being accessed to download that data.
So do you know any way to do that.?

A:How to get link of the data downloaded by a software

It would likely not be easy. You can see what IP address it is connecting to, but likley not the specific address.

You can use the netstat command to see what programs are calling out, and where.

Open an advanced command prompt

Start> In search box type cmd> Right click on cmd.exe in results above and choose Run as administrator> When command prompt opens type

netstat -bnf

Enter

This will list which exe files are connecting to the internet, and also the IP addresses they are connecting to

You can also create a log. Typing

netstat -bnf 5 >> C:\connections.txt

For instance will run the command at five second intervals until stopped by pressing the Ctrl+c keys. This will create a text log file in C:\ named connections.txt

You can also get similar info with a simple, free program like CurrPorts

CurrPorts: Monitoring TCP/IP network connections on Windows

Scroll down to near the bottom and d/l the x64 version. Usually the IP addresses will not load in a browser as is.

If you spend some time learning, perhaps a more complex program like Wireshark can get more info

Wireshark ? Go Deep.

It is a very powerful program, but again, I am not certain it can tell you the exact address the updates are being retrieved from. For instance, using CurrPorts for Avast! Updates, I get an IP address of 77.234.43.64. Pasting that in a browser will get you

Every time (since about a month ago) I download a new software program over the web it is listed in "uninstall or change a program" as much larger than the download size, in one case over 5 times larger! This has never happened previously to a month ago. Is this a problem or is it just a Vista glitch that has shown up? Could something be causing the operating system to read the file size as much larger than it actually is? I am running 64 bit Home Premium.

When it happened the first time I thought it was a glitch in that particular piece of software but it has happened with two other software programs as well.

I got a strange folder that was downloaded to my external drive. In it there was a Setup executable, so I ran it to see what it was. (I now realize that it could have been a virus!) Anyway, it is the KB2600217 software update, which had a listing that it is an update for .NET 4.0. I tried to delete this folder, but it wouldn't let me, saying I needed to get permission from SYSTEM or something. If I had to, I would guess that it was supposed to have been downloaded to some temporary location and then run, but somehow it got put to my external drive. So my questions are how to run this, and then how to delete it! Thanks

A:Got KB2600217 software update downloaded to external drive

There is probably no need to run it at all - check your Installed Updates listing and see if the update is listed there. If so, take ownership of the download's folder on the external drive, and then delete it.

I'm still relatively new to Win10, having done a clean install on my laptop that had been running Win7 for a few years.

I'm trying to understand if there's any advantage/disadvantage to installing apps from the Windows Store versus installing the regular versions of the same software. For example, I'm a long-time user of portable apps and for years have used the portable version of VLC. However, I saw that there's a VLC app available from the Store. So I installed both versions (i.e. the portable version and the Store app version) and the portable version is clearly more robust and has more features than the app. Such being the case, why would anyone want the Store app version versus the regular or portable version? Is there some advantage to installing the Store apps instead of the regular or portable versions of software? Do the apps install and uninstall at lot cleaner than their non-app counterparts?

I have two user accounts on my computer. One is my personal one and is password protected. The other is for my roommates to use if they want to watch a movie or something (I'm a nice guy; they hardly ever use it anyway; not password protected) Yesterday afternoon I downloaded a Client software program from my University's software page. I wanted to be able to log onto my school's engineering servers from home. The installer told me to restart when it was finished downloading. Since I've done that, when I turn on the computer it automatically logs onto the movies account and not my personal one. When I click switch user, the screen goes black and comes back to the movies account desktop a few seconds later. Same thing happens when I hit log off. I have restarted and shut down the computer numerous times with no help. Does anyone have ANY idea of what I should do? Thanks so much for your help.
 

A:Downloaded Client Software from University's website, will not log onto my user.

Did you install using the movies account? Or does the movies account appear first on the screen you normally get to select which account you want? If either answer is 'yes' that may be a clue to what has happened. But for what to do about it you probably should start with contacting your university's IT department.

Yesterday my Critical Updates said MS Malicious Software Removal Tool was available for download..so I got it and installed it I want to give it a try, but I can't find it! There are only two references to it on my computer (I searched for it by name and by Critical Update number). One is in the C: Windows>Downloaded Software Distribution> Install folder, it says that's a CAB file, it is an exe -? Is that it? (and if it is, why is it squirreled away where no one would ever find it?) The other is in the PF folder. The MS site says "it can be downloaded, installed and run manually from your computer." Except I can't find it. It's available to run online at MS, but I downloaded and installed it, so it's not that, is it? Where is the one I downloaded and how do I run it?
Also - the site says this:
The first time that you download and run the tool by using Windows Update or Automatic Updates, you must accept a specific end user license agreement (EULA). The EULA is displayed when you log on as a member of the Administrators group and then access Automatic Updates or the Windows Update site.
But nothing like that popped up after it installed.

PHBB forums requires your server to host php which geocities defiantly doesnt so go look else were secondly the forum stores all the data meassages in a MySQL whihc geocties also obvioulsy doesnt ofeer so again you need to find a host that does. Now I will be real nice and give you 2 that do have both things you need:

Hi!

Once again, while on the web, I received a message that I needed some Anti-virus protection and when I went to close the box, it started downloading something. This happened a couple of times now.

To top it off, I was just notified by my bank today, that fraudulent charges are coming through my bank card and they are closing that account and issuing a new card to me. I am sure I need to clean my computer. Please help!

I have followed the necessary first steps and have attached the requested files and posted the documents.

Hello goldensunshine Welcome to the TSF Virus/Trojan/Spyware Help forum. I will be assisting you in cleaning up your system.


I ask that you refrain from running tools other than those we suggest while we are cleaning up your computer. The reason for this is so we know what is going on with the machine at any time. Some programs can interfere with others and hamper the recovery process.




After 3 days if a topic is not replied to we assume it has been abandoned and it is closed.

It may be obvious but I need to say it anyway. If your credit card has been compromised then you need to consider every password you use on this computer as being compromised also. That means making sure you get to a clean computer and change them all.



Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link 1
alternate download link 2

MBAM may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you. Temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.

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.

thanks,

I have setup every application to "ask me before checking for updates",

Even when I am not using any brower, email or any opther application, I notice that my lights on my modem are blinking quite fast... that is something is being downloded. It has been going on for quite sometime.

How do I find out what is being downloded (or uploaded)?

I use
toshiba laptop
window 7 prof
IE9
MS office 2010
Internet secuirity (antivirus, etc ...) from Bell
Thank you very much
 

A:How do I know what is being downloaded?

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

A:Think I Downloaded Something, Help

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. 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.

Is there any utility that will tell me after the fact who downloaded anything to me? In my case, it's probably an update of some kind. But it has already happened because I see in Networx > General > Today that sometime this morning about 600 mb was downloaded to my computer. Is there any record of the source of this download in Win7, Firefox or some utility I can use to discover today's download, and to maintain a log in the future?

A:who downloaded to me?

I was working trying to fix my DVDFab express tonight, and I was using a keygenerator... bad I know... but anyways, I ended up downloading and installing something that made my desktop wallpaper go to white and flicker... THe program initiated a msdos looking window with an error message that asked me if I wanted to abort... I couldn't choose anything and had to reboot... that's when I found it had erased my wallpaper and I couldn't get it fixed.. i knew it was some kind of malicious program...

so i came to you guys and I have followed all your steps... My wallpaper is back and I think I have gotten rid of most stuf, but my computer is still running kind of weird, slow, just not the same....

I have ran Adaware SE Personal, Spybot, Notron Anti-Virus, Kapersky Online Scanner, CWShredder, and Spyware Blaster... Please see if something else is on there...

Thanks Guys!!!!

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. Here's my Hijackthis log:

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

Hey all,

Sorry I'm new to the forum, hopefully this is the right place to put this.

I've just upgraded my Dell XPS 420 to windows 7-32bit Home Premium from vista and now any time I try and install a program from the internet (even things like iTunes or Firefox) I'm runnig into problems.

Once I've downloaded any set-up file I click on it and the user account asks if I want to allow the program access. Once I click yes it thinks about it for a bit and then nothing happens.

I've tried running them as administrator and in compatability mode. I've also tried unblocking them in the properties and even re-downloading and installing without any user account settings or firewall but nothing works.

I even thought it might be a bad install of Windows so I formatted my hard drive and tried again but still no luck.

Can anyone please help, my computers basically useless right now

Thanks

I have changed the default from the wierd website to "google.com" but it still will default to this website "partner12..." if the domain name does not exist. i used to have norton antivirus but the subscription ran out and i did not renew...I know I should probably get something to protect my computer as well from now on.

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!"

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.

sound driver. and i did and the sound did come back after restarting.
I thought to myself .. this is great, vista tells ya when drivers need updating.
now spybot keeps telling me that new startup values have changed.
Startup is like Direct TV during a hurricane but only for a couple of seconds.
I chat with the Dell Techs and they wont help becouse i bought the laptop at
Best Buy (geek squad).. I chat with them a they said the driver i downloaded was a virus.
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?
I use system mechanic pro. firewall antivirus and all are up to date

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?

whenever i download anything from the internet and when i open it .it says me to accept.i accept.then a shield like symbol appears on the task bar and when i click it its gone.plz help

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.

I have managed to get a-hold of something that is messing with my system. I'm hoping someone can help me. The first sign something was wrong was with McAfee. It notified me I wasn't protected. When I tried to turn it on it would turn off on it's own. I have downloaded several security packages since and scanned but none have found the problem. Now the computer is becoming more and more sluggish.

I have an Acer Tablet with Intel and Atom, CPU N450 @1.66 GHz, 0.99GHz Ram, running Windows XP Home Edition 2002 Service pack 3

I will post my logs from HijackThis and GMER. I downloaded DDS onto my desktop and ran it 3 times but no logs are popping up. I know directions said to disable any script blockers but I don't think I'm running any and if I am I don't know where to go to find and disable them.

Still trying to resolve issues with IE8. Looking at downloaded controls I see three instances of Java Plug-in. All installed at the same time when I installed the latest version of Java.

Is this normal? If I remove one (and then two) will it remove all of them? Should I just disable two?

Then looking at "run without permissions" I see even more instances of Java Plug-n.

I do want to keep Java Plug-in but wonder why I have so many of the same?

A:Three of the same downloaded control add-on

Those three seam to be the same. If it was my computer I would remove all Java and get a fresh download of Java. I think this might answer all your questions.
What is Java Update?

I mistakenly downloaded something that I think is "privitize vpn" that keeps showing up when I try to search, and there are weird adds on sites that didn't have ads before. I tried to uninstall the program but I'm stilling having those issues.

It now has happened on two of my computers. Via Windows Update the AU has been downloaded but not installed. Both just installed the updates for 1511 but the AU still remains. A third computer did install the AU, the fourth is sitting idle so not sure what it will do when I turn it on.

I know I can install the AU manually but this seems like a messed up way to distribute it.

A:AU downloaded but not installed

Maybe count yourself lucky you're not (yet!) in the situation of a failed AU upgrade with an unbootable PC, and no disk images...

Note the latest update to the AU - some 100's of Mbs- is stalling indefinitely during the download for many. Possibly sthg to look forward too... (fixes posted in related threads- which might be of help here).

Search for threads on KB3189866 incl. the News forum.

Hi. I have a mustek scanner to which I have had to download the software for (reformatted pc and now the original installation cd will not run as kids damaged it, BLESS).
This download is in five parts all of which I have downloaded into my own created 'downloads' folder on c: (they obviously are now 5 different files in this folder).
On the website I downloaded them from it stated 'download all 5 files from web onto pc's hard disc under same directory'. I did not do this as I didn't know what it meant ( thought I would play and work it out but I'm just too stupid).
When I click on first file it starts and then asks me to insert next disc because they are not in this said directory,all being separate.
Can I now make/find or whatever this directory and move them into it and how or must I first make/find this directory and and download them again directly into this directory and how?
Please be gentle with explaination/terminology as as you have prob' gathered my pc skills are more than limited!!
Your help gratefully recieved, Steve.
 

A:Downloaded driver

Hi Steve1ramsey,
First of all, there is nothing such as "too stupid".
I would rather say that we all start somewhere.

If you remeber the name of the folder you created and put the different files in you only need to change the last part of the path.

Eg. You copy the 5 files in different folder, let's call them "Folder 1", "Folder 2", "Folder 3" etc.
Then you start the Setup from Folder 1.
Later it asks you for disk 2.
You can see the whole path to the Setup, like C:\driversfolder\Folder 1\
You just change "Folder 1" to "Folder 2" and then press OK.

That should do it. In other feel free to ask again
Good luck!

Hi everyone,
New user to SevenForums.

For the longest time we did not have IE on our HP Smart Touch. We would use Firefox. Well, I needed to get IE 10 installed. I downloaded IE 10 from MS and installed. I made sure the Turn Windows Features On/Off from Control Panel had IE selected. However, after I went through the installation, IE 10 was not available. It is showing as an installed update to Windows but does not show in the Control Panel>Program and Features.

Does anyone have any ideas as to how I can get IE running? or how I can check what may be disabling it?

I do not know how IE was removed and unavailable to begin with.

Thanks for any help.

It appears to be a pretty decent and harmless program that just gives you an interface to change some settings that you would otherwise need to know how to edit the registry. If you used it to change some settings then it may well have helped.

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?

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