I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

hi all. I am getting several errors with bood performance and shutdown performance monitoring issues. I was wondering if anyone knows what the errors are and how to fix them.

they are errors:
They are in order from most recent to not so recent. They are all warnings(most of these are warnings), errors, and i think 2 criticals. the bottom of the list started the 15th. the top is today-the 29th. i have updated everything i can think of, and i really think these may help lead me to some boot up problems i have been having.
Btw- did a clean install of win7 64x the 15th. VERY FEW programs installed. ALL updates current. no games. just basic stuff like adobe etc.
Any help would be much appreciated!
Thanks in advance.

Is your boot up slow? Don't pay attention to these unless you notice that your computer isn't performing well or is crashing etc.

Since that goes directly into a switch and to the Internet in the router, it'll be pretty difficult with a cheap SOHO router. You could install software on his machine to do the trick, or buy a router with parental controls and filters.

I really doubt that such a critter exists, but after reading the specs on my DVD burner, I got to wondering. It says that the operating environment is 5C to 45C temperature and 15% to 80% relative humidity. Since the video card is operating at 48C and one of my harddrives is at 40C, it not hard to imagine that the optical drives frequently exceed these limits. Therfore, my question is, is there any such thing as a monitoring device or monitoring program for optical devices?

A:CD/DVD Monitoring

Howdy seekermeister,
Interesting question. I've never seen it before. I did some research and can find only sketchy stuff at best. No measuring software at all. But it seems to me you have no problem. Even at 50C, 122F, it seems the drive's operating temperature is only related to it's internal temp while burning in direct relationship to the media capabilities/physical content make up. If that wasn't the case everyone living in Las Vegas would have drip dry coasters.

In searching I found drives rated at a max of only 40C. Well that would mean half the machines out there would have failed optical drives.

Hi all. Do any of you know any free, reliable and discreet software that would allow me to see exactly what is being done on my PC during the day when i'm at work? I tried Computer Watchdog and it seriously screwed my PC up so that's a no-no. Have any of you tried these sort of programs and know any that are ok?

A:Pc Monitoring

I'm against the use of monitoring software on general principle. It's not that it's bad, it's just that there are other steps that can be taken to prevent the abuse.

And, IMO, these other steps are much more effective and long lasting.

First is that you forbid use of the system, you forbid the use of certain parts of the system, or you forbid the visiting of certain types of websites.

Next, you establish consequences for disobedience.

Then you sit back and wait. Eventually you'll determine if disobedience is occurring - then you enact the consequences. There's a wealth of information stored on the hard drive.

Consequences can be multi-pronged - both preventing access to the system and/or it's abilities and punitive measures designed to reinforce the consequences of disobedience.

Doing this fairly and consistently will give you more piece of mind than any monitoring software that you can use.

A:Better RAM monitoring for Windows?

I personally have never worried about Ram usage in windows, ok, maybe a little to some degree.
But not to the depths that I think you are asking. Honestly, I don't see the point.

Win 7 handles memory much better than XP or even Vista did.

Again, I have never found a reason for them for any real reason.

Zero can mean that a certain fan has stopped.
it can also mean, that the sensor the information is pulled from is either defective or more likely on your motherboard not existent.(Imagine how many differen motherboards layouts have to be covered)

A:PC Monitoring Software

Im no expert at networking, but I have heard about software named wireshark mentioned a lot for network monitoring which captures packets and allows you to examine their contents. Hopefully someone can provide more information on this software for you.

If you are looking to simply block certain types of sites then you may wish to try OpenDNS, which is free for business and personal use. You can customize what you want to block (which includes proxy sites to help prevent people using workarounds) You can also add individual sites in a filter which will either allow or block access to that specific site. I used this software myself for my home network and it did a great job of blocking the kids from unsavory sites!

Hey all-

I was just wondering if anyone knew of any good network monitoring tools (under $50) that would allow me to see computers on my network and how much bandwidth each is using. We have a T1 line and periodically we have a slow down on the network normally due to somebody downloading a large file.

I would need a tool that would be able to see all computers remotely so I do not have to install the program on each system.

Thanks for the help!

A:Network Monitoring

Good luck. Whatever tool you use will have to be watching at a "choke point" where all the Internet traffic goes by. Addressed traffic through a switch will only appear on the two port that are directing it from the source to the destination.

Perhaps you could tell us what type of network equipment you currently have. Your T1 firewall or gateway appliance may have monitoring capabilities.

Hi there
Could somebody explain in simple terms how to monitor and perhaps reconfigure our wireless network.
We have recently set up a satellite system with a 250kbs download speed
the problem is I need to know how to monitor the usage and who is hogging the system.
System set up, Satellite terminal with internet access. this is dchp provider
The terminal has 4 lan ports and attached to one port is an netgear mimo 54 g wireless access point.The system could have on line approx 14 hosts. so I need to monitor the bandwidth .

Does anyone know of any software that monitors signal strength in warehouse distribution applications? It must be compatible with a 2.4 GIG frequency system and run either VT100 or VT220 emulation.

I am basically trying to prove to the powers that be, that 8 access points in a 1.3 million square foot warehouse are not enough.

I had a app at another one of our DC's that would monitor this. But it was on a 900 meg frequency system. Running a diferent emulation, so its not compatible now.

if it could save the recorded movie on different machine,where the recorded users wouldn't have access

A:Looking for monitoring software

I can't answer all your questions but here's what i know about. Anything that I personally use is marked with an asterisk.

Software/File Protection

-Alerts if any unauthorised file is being executed (aside from media files)

SecureAPlus Application Whitelisting * - need the No AV version. Checks any unsigned executable that attempts to run with the option to block. Plus a few more options. Also see:

Note: I'm not using the current version.

VoodooShield *

Note: Pro version is cheap and much better than the free version. It does require a user to train the program and aslo reset the whitelist and retrain if a mistake is made in allowing something that should have been blocked.

Spy The Spy*

allows the user to specify directories to be monitored for the creation/ modification of executables.

-Alerts if any unauthorised program is making file or registry changes

MJRegWatcher* - real time registry protection.

-Alerts if any program is attempting to access a network

Well I use Threatfire for that. It's no longer available and there's no development or support but I can provide a download link if you want it.

-Integrated network real-time monitoring

I use Comodo CIS for that but also if you are using Windows Firewall take a look at:

Glasswire - Note: Only works with Windows Firewall

-Can block/exempt executed files/programs

See VoodooShield and SecureAplus (mentioned earlier)

Actually blocking specific files is tricky if they don't already exist on your machine and are legitimate. Maybe take a look at This Post.

Maybe take a look at: Smart Windows App Blocker

-Permanent file deletion

BlankAndSecure * - for folders or individual files.

SDelete* - to wipe free space and MFT free space (NTFS Drives only). I can help with command line usage.

-File Monitoring; ability to have certain files watched

Personally I only check for modified executables using Spy The Spy (mentioned earlier) and a few other files (like HOSTS file) using Threatfire.

-Integrated installation monitor automatically detects install files and captures them
-Integrated installation removal tool
-Integrated installation option to make portable

For that I was using Comodo Programs Manager as it does all of the above but it's no longer supported and it's stopped working on my machine. You could test it and see if it works for you. I've tried lots of replacements but none of them have been much good.

Hardware Protection:

-Hardware/Service Change Detection
-Hardware Integrity Monitoring, detects faults/errors
-Integrated Latency Monitoring/Logging
-Latency Troubleshooting&Alerting if it goes above the average threshold

No idea. Sorry.

-Integrated I/O real-time monitoring/logging
-I/O Monitoring alerts if there is a large amount of writes or reads occurring

Nothing that I've used has been any good.

Operating Protection

-EventLog Alternative

Windows Inspection Tool Set * - also great for monitoring on an as an when needed basis. Not for constant real-time monitoring as it would use too many resources.

-EventLog Monitor, reports issues as they happen and works to correct them
-EventLog Filtering, ability to remove logging of certain events

Don't know!

-BootTime Monitor/Logger

Currently i use Process Monitor if and when I get a slow boot issue. See:

How To Enable System Boot Time Logging using Process Monitor Tool*

-BootTime Troubleshooting&Alerting if load times exceed average

No Idea!

Firstly, the internet is transparent. Anyone with access to the wire sees everything you do with the exception of encrypted content (your online banking is safe).

Secondly, if it is your work computer then your work admins can do anything in there with their administrative rights. And there is nothing you can do about that either.

You just have to accept that it is the company computer and the company internet connection and that you will have to use them on the company terms.

One monitor (the one that got #1) has vga and hdmi port. It is a tv actually
This one is connected from the hdmi port to the dvi port on the computer.
The other monitor (he got #2) has only one vga port.
This one is connected from the vga port of course to the vga port on the computer.

Hi All,

I noticed my modem flashing and hard drive flashing when I'm not using it for send/receive. Is there a window/program that monitors what is happening on the modem while not in use? I have all my programs set to notify me if an update is available and lets me decide if I want to download and install it. I realize some programs are set to "phone home" whenever you connect to the web. I am really curious to see what is going through my modem.



A:monitoring what's going through my modem

Basically what is happening is your Modem/router/PC are all constantly talking to eachother, even when not in use. Kind of like "hey are you there" which will get a response "yep IM still waiting for orders"... that type of thing.

If you wish, you can use something like Wireshark but you'll really need to know what you are looking for to even sniff out a problem.

As far as the hard drive, that does work while you aren't working as well. You can monitor stuff while on idle by using Task manager and see if you are getting unusual CPU usage while idling.

Hi, I am worried about the ammount af time and attention my friend's son is giving to his conversations on messenger.

I have looked around for some software to record his conversations (invisibly) and have tried a few free samples with very little success, as the samples don't give enough functionality and there are so many out there, that I cannot make a decent choice.

Can anybody help by recommending something that they know works, or any other help will be very much appreciated.

A:Need Help Monitoring Msn Messenger

Well I found something MSN/Yahoo Message Archive Decoder and Viewer Doesn't keylog anything it just reads the logs that MSN makes of its conversations. Its good to be aware of whats going on in your PC not that I approve of reading other peoples stuff.

Lately my husband has been acting very weird, to the point where I believe that he may be cheating on me. Always closing the windows when I walk into the room, getting suspicious instant messages, always closing the door when he is online, etc. And I wanted to know what program I could use to see what he is doing online and who he is talking to and such. Is there such a program that I could maybe send through an email, that will tell me what he has been doing???? What are my options?? I really need your help!! Thank you!!

Does anyone know the best way to go about this??


A:Internet Monitoring

You are probably looking for a network monitoring tool or sniffer. Try etherdetect Etherdetedt ... Or try Anasil Anasil ... They both have trial version where you could download and try out... Let me know what you think...

Hi there guys & gals!
Jus wondering if anyone could suggest a free internet monitoring tool \ program. For a business type environment with 25 users? Basically something that can monitor users internet usage and if you can restrict bandwidth that would be the best!

Hi Mark

I don't know of any free tools personally (there are many good programs available retail ... they tend to be pricey). But have you checked over at cnet's Their editors review a fair amount of the tools, and there are usually some user reviews providing some feedback as well.

[Then there's also the hidden company camera .... :) ]
Best of luck

I am looking for a free program that can monitor a certain web page and tell me when it has been updated or when something has changed. I use Firefox so if there is an extension that does this I can use that instead.
