Free or not so free Zone alarm

Q: Free or not so free Zone alarm

Dear All, Although I know we can't always get something for nothing these days, Zonealarm has been an invaluable form of protection. It would seem now, that to receive the latest update, you have to try some other product from other companys, and then you will receive your update. Fair play really I suppose, but what is the best way around this as none of the products really hold any interest to me?

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 http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello all,

I've recently bought a HP Pavilion 15-n252sq laptop, with Free Dos - unfortunately I can't install Windows 7 over it, due to the following error I keep receiveing in the Installation screen:

"Select the driver to be installed" - and regardless of the paths I have and the available folders, I can not seem to proceed wtih the W7 installation.

Please notice that, I've tried to use both a W7 DVD and also a bootable USB drive (and yes, connected in the USB 2.0 port and not USB 3.0 ) - but I always get to the same point where I have to select drivers.

Please also notice that the BIOS doesn't allow me to make any modifications except for some minor ones (like select boot priority, or enable USB 3.0), as the rest of the MAIN features are greyed out .

Can anyone please help me with this issue?

Regards,
Adrian
 

A:HP Pavilion 15-n252sq - Can not install Windows over Free Dos

You may have to use a program Like KillDisk to reformat the drive. Then try installing your Win 7 DVD.

I have a Seagate ST500DM002 using windows 7.
it shows around 150GB free space, when I delete files from it (not to recycle bin), it still shows the same amount of free space, even after restart, any advice?

Hello tech forums My friends computer has been having a very odd issue regarding cpu usage I noticed it when trying to play DC universe online and noticed big fps issues in character creation all settings being turned down After that I monitored resources to see if anything is amiss and soon enough I saw my cpu usage randomnly spiking Also it easily hits and is probably trying to use more when DC Universe is on The other odd thing I saw was that the cpu usually operated at a higher frequency than actually being used in resource manager I have uninstalled Startup toolbar updater thinking it was using too. reason. Already for no malware overused CPU free tested being too much resources and have used the malware tech support to see if it was a infestation of any kind No dice all scans came up relatively CPU being overused for no reason. Already tested malware free too. clean My only other thought is that it might be DMA being reverted to PIO or some software issue This is my last shot before I reformat this frigging labtop gt lt Only thing stopping me is the possibility that it might be hardware though I can t imagine why On another note maybe the cpu is just messed up Whenever it spikes i don t see a reason why nbsp

A:CPU being overused for no reason. Already tested malware free too.

Okay some new observations. With a room temp of 12 C my CPU idles at 45 C. Mobo is seeing 25 C during this. Also just watching the CPU usage through speed fan for a couple of hours I noticed that it likes to dance between 2% - 5% constantly. Occasionally spike to 30% or 50%. Also, it can't hand DC universe at all. Through CPU-Z The processor seems to be acting normal. It runs at half power when it's not being used much and jumps to normal speed. That might explain a little bit of spikage, but it's performance overall doesn't make sense. It shouldn't be jumping so high when I start DC online.

Ok, can anyone help with this one?

I noticed that my PC was being reeaally slow recently so I attempted to clear some space, I did all the usual stuff: deleted unused programmes, emptied the recycle bin etc but its still slow and showing just 3% space remaning!!

How can this be? Surely I can't have used all the capacity!! How do I see what's using the most space?

Anyone?

Any advice most appreciated...
 

A:Only 3% free space remaining - how come?

Hi,

Ali that is a worm/virus.
If you can try installing spybot, if you get luck with it make sure you run it, it will do it magic.
How ever to create some bit of space, you go to run, and type %temp%
press enter and shift + delete all you find there...
its safe...
Hope that helps

A:Is there such thing of a free VPN

Not that I know of, unless you work out a deal with another Counter Strike clan to host your version on their machine as well. Setting up two dedicated Counter Strike servers on one machine might be quite a pain, though.

The system you describe in your profile should run a CSS server with out noticeably slowing down any thing.

My Dell Latitude continually drops its power cord when working on the lap. This is annoying in itself, but even ,ore annoying when the PC hibernates.
I have enabled both the low and critical battery warnings in Control Panel, and they consistently remind me to switch to outlet power....... after I restart. Which is a tad pointless.
My 'other' PC warns me when the cord falls out (very rarely) by dimming the screen.
Can some body help with this annoying quirk?

Till now, I've been using esnips for (non bit torrent) free file sharing. Problem is:

esnips started requiring the esnips download manager for any esnips download and
The new esnips installer includes sneakware: it installs its own home page, search page, etc. unless one carefully reviews and unchecks all the installation options
So everytime i give someone a file sharing link i don't want to worry about warning them about the sneakware (and worse yet, they overlook the options and install the sneakware by mistake)
Any other good site recommendations? And would you know how they compare to ensips offer of free 5GB storage with 200MB limit per file?
 

A:Recommendations for free file sharing sites?

DropBox is pretty awesome; I use it a lot. If you upload via the desktop app, there's no limit on the file size, but you're limited to 300MB per file if you use the web browser uploader. The max for free storage is 2GB I believe.

Some of the RAM is used by/ reserved for, the computer's BIOS.

Also, the GB to MB conversion is not as exact as you think. (It goes by 8s, not by 10s)

Hey,

I'm in a difficult situation here. I have had over 3 years of free ADSL internet at my home now (due to a mistake with the ISP). Anyway, my speed has been stuck at 5mbps ever since, with no download/upload limit.

Today though, I've noticed that my ISP has an option to get fiber optic internet, which is 40/40mbps currently and the speeds will go up soon...

But if I switch, I'll have to pay for it... So do you think fiber is worth it? Or should I just keep my 5 mbps for the years to come
 

A:Free ADSL vs Paid Optic

Before getting a large bill in the mail.
You should pay for a new Internet contract (fiber optic if that's what you want)

I'm finally going to get a domain name after years of using my ISP's free webserver. I'm almost set with a name. I think all the words in the dictionary has been taken. Does anyone disagree?

I want to dive further in the realm of web programming so I thought I'd look for more feature rich web servers. My ISP only provide basic html stuff. Since my website is simple and I doubt it will garner much traffic anytime soon, I thought I'd stay with free service rather than pay $50/year when I'm the only one visiting the site and still learning the ropes. I need advice on which free providers I should look into and hopefully ones that you can personally vouch for. Googling is easy but I don't want to simply pick one on the top of the list if there are far better.
 

A:Looking for free web server

What I have used is Yola (www.yola.com). You might be interested in it, I like it because it has 0 adds on it. only a tab on the bottom of the page that says "make a free website with yola", and that you get a URL like this: www.example.yolasite.com. The only thing is that I use templates, (it also says "designed by free CSS templates" you probably want something more technical. It might not be any better than what you have. :-( Anyway, I'm no pro, just thought you might like to check it out! if you want to see my website, it's www.puravidarainforests.yolasite.com (rather long), but you can get an idea how you can make it look.

I have just established a website and beginned to do individual tests. Last week I got a Water Cooled Zotac 9800GTX+ Zone Edition and compared with GTX 260 and HD 3870 (I will add 4850 tests soon).

The GPU temperature doesnt exceed 50-51C under heavy load. GPU-z shows GPU used in this card manifactured by 65 nm process, not 55nm as expected. This is quite shocking after we had seen first 9800GT samples were 65nm G92 (8800GT) actually.

Mouse cursor - reboot and go into the BIOS (F2) and disable the touchpad which may have failed. If you have any warranty on the machine, I would take it back to the retailer/outlet.
Screeching - this could be an overheat or fan failure warning. Can you check if the fan is running (you may not hear it over the din but can you feel air movement?).
You may be able to check the fan status in the BIOS

It appears to be set up to take more "stuff" of whatever you want to store there. If you really wanted to, you could put another OS on the drive but do you really want to?

Open up the task manager and see if there are any processes you don't recognize. Also you could try to find a program (I've heard of several, never used them though) that tells you what folder(s) are using the most space on your hard drive.

Hey all

I recently bought a Leadtek DTV1000 TV Card, but had problems with the digital reception in my area. This card worked fine with my mother board. I traded it in for the DTV2000 for its analogue tuning.

I put the new card but i cant use the twin output on the Radeon 9600 any more. It says Code 12 - The device cannot find enough free resources that it can use.

I have removed my soundcard and my other PCI DSP Audio card to leave just the vid card and the TV Card in there to see if it would free up, but the error remains.

Any 1 got any suggestions???

A:Zone Alarm and wireless problems

Does this answer look good to you ?

"It seems that the very first time you connect, Zone Alarm may block the connection.
The fix is to disable Zone Alarm before you connect.
Once you've successfully connected, start Zone Alarm. It should recognize the new network
and prompt you to Allow or Deny access to the network. Choose Allow.

This seems to happen only the first time you try to connect to wireless.
Once you've connected, and once you've told Zone Alarm to allow access, you should not have any more problems."

A:How to turn off warbling temperature alarm

hi russ73 and welcome to TechSpot

by "alarm" are you referring to a repeating sequence of beeps?, if so then your motherboard manual should have a list of beep codes and what the mean. are you able to enter your BIOS?

if it's an actual constant alarm sound, then it sounds like it may be an overheating CPU. when you replaced the CPU,

if you re-used the old heatsink/fan from your 2.4GHz CPU:
are you sure it can sufficiently cool the 3.2GHz CPU?
did you thoroughly clean the old thermal compound/paste from the CPU?
did you thoroughly clean the old thermal compound/paste from the heatsink?
did you apply new thermal compound/paste to the CPU before mounting the heatsink?
did you remember to plug the CPU fan in? (I know it seems obvious but it's easy to overlook if you're in a hurry )
-or-
if you installed a new heatsink/fan:
did it come with thermal paste or a thermal pad on it?
did you remember to remove any protective film before mounting?
did you remember to plug the CPU fan in? (again )

why is the slow virtual memory working before i ran out of good and fast memory stick?
 

A:virtual memory, why is it beeing used while i still have free memory?

" XP REQUIRES "backing storage" for EVERYTHING it keeps in RAM.
Virtual Memory is always in use.All processess gets virtual memory addresses
(a Virtual Address Space) no matter how much RAM is actually installed on the computer."

"Memory allocation in is a two-step process--virtual memory addresses are reserved first, and committed second...The reservation process is simply a way NT tells the Memory Manager to reserve a block of virtual memory pages to satisfy other memory requests by the process...There are many cases in which an application will want to reserve a large block of its address space for a particular purpose (keeping data in a contiguous block makes the data easy to manage) but might not want to use all of the space."

In other words,that virtual memory to which you refer,is only allocated memory,not necessarily
paged memory.

The thing you really want to know,is the actual pagefile usage.Use this programHERE

A:Help Configuring ADSL Router / Gigabyte W-less and Zone Alarm Security Suite 2006

Okay here goes. First off do you have windows firewall on? If so then you need to turn it off because you are using Zone Alarm. I am not familiar with Zone Alarm but it should be pretty much this way. To open a port for playing games you have to use port forwarding on the router. Make sure you pick a port that is not used by other services. Here is a link to the ports to use.
http://www.iana.org/assignments/port-numbers
Pick one that is unassigned. You may also have to set this in the game and in Zone Alarm.
Static Addresses are manually assigned to the pc. If you are not using Static then you are using DHCP and the router automaticly gives you the IP address, subnet mask address,default gateway address, and the DNS addresses. If there is only two of you I would go with Static. Your Default Gateway is the IP Address of your router. It is normally 192.168.1.1. Then you would assign yourself an address of 192.168.1.5, and your friend 192.168.1.6. Your Subnet Mask should be 255.255.255.0 and DNS Addresses you have to get from your ISP or you can look in the router config page and see what they are.
If you have any question please fill free to ask. I hope this helps some what. No need to apologize for not knowing how to do this. Welcome to the networking world.

A:false free space shown on hardrive

How are you downloading? Many downloading programs preallocate the space for the files being downloaded so even if you have only 100KB of a 700MB file it will still use the whole 700MB of disk.

SequoiaView is a pretty program that will tell you in what files your disk space hides in.

I went to play Call of Duty (which i've done many times) but this time i started getting an alarm which sound like German police car-- is this a firewall alarm and someone is trying to break into my computer. Once I leave the game the alarm stops after about 30 seconds. In my firewall settings i have an exseption for CoD Which should allow Packets to pass. Now I'm only guessing about the Firewall being the cause. It could be little green men blowing trumphets in my machine as well.
 

A:Alarm --NEENER alarm where is it coming form???

Try going to a different save point and see if it does the same thing, it could be a game problem that has cropped up, or if you are playing online try single player. I can't remember the in game audio settings, but try a lower audio setting and see if that works, if you have EAX turned on, turn it off.

I've had games freeze and have an audio loop that never stops until you exit the game, and it would continue until the game was totally unloaded for maybe 30 seconds, but never heard anything like a siren. Usually when this has happened to me, going back to the last save point and replaying the level fixed it.

I don't know if any of this helps, but that's all I can think of.

A:Epic Games makes its Unreal Engine 4 free for all

Very interesting. Not being a developer myself I wonder if they would like this newer format or prefer the monthly tiers. Trying to remember if was a flat fee per month or it was a flat fee + royalties.

But it's great to know that the Unreal Engine will be more widely available to would-be developers.

Edit: Read the old article. Dropping the monthly fee for straight up royalties (same %) I think is a good move. Not that $20 a month was a drop in the bucket to begin with but at least now those that are interested have an easy stepping stone to get started without an investment.

A:Free scanning software

You should be able to get the scanner driver software from the scanner manufacturer's web site. The capability for generating PDFs would be, I think, built into that. Using Canon as an example, Canon supplies updated drivers for newer versions of Windows, and some utilities free at their website as well.

Hi people, I would like to copy my dvds onto my hd in either avi or mp4 format while at the same time shrinking them down to a more manageable size (1gb or less) so I am able to watch them on my TV.
I was able to do this successfully on my previous windows machine but could do with some help on my Linux Ubuntu install as I have now ditched Microsoft products.

So to recap.

I need means to rip, resize, and convert my dvds onto my hd into avi/mp4 format please.

P.S. I am not looking for instruction to do anything illegal. I will only use it to copy dvds that allow such use.

Thanks

A:CS2 Free download

It is misleading in the sense that CS2 is not free. It is a free download for those who have previously own CS2. It is a version of which no longer uses the activation servers. From what I hear you must register with Adobe to get the activation key. The keys are only given to consumers who have previously owned CS2.

A:Need good free firewall for novice user that's easy to use

That's a good question and I too am interested in the answers.

What I typically do is expose the individual's firewall to everything good that must not be blocked (i.e. fill up the exceptions list). Then, I just tell them to hit block on pretty much anything unless you are installing a new program or connecting to a different network for the first time. Also, Adblock Plus for Firefox silently blocks the bad content on most sites before it even reaches the firewall so that has helped to make the whole process more automated.
