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.)

Can anybody Help Me !!

I have set up a Server type machine on a HP Touchsmart running Vista

I have purchased a Seagate 2TB Expansion Drive with its own power source

I desperately want to know how this external drive can be seen by other devices on the network

I have other external drives with their own power supply and non of them can be accessed by other computers on the network....Is there a trick to these devices!!!

I have external hard drives with NO power supply just USB connection and I can access them from any computer on the network and any media device on the network

I'm not very technical and would like to know if its just the type of device and I should be buying usb connected hard drives for music and movies

A:External Expansion Drive with own power supply

You need a router that has a USB connection. Then you can connect the external storage to the network. That is only for a USB drive though. Do you have one of those passport drives with a battery?

A:Seagate expansion hard drive not showing on computers

Sounds like the drive has failed as you had been getting warning signs with the I/O errors and now it has stopped working. There is a possibility that it is just the circuitry in the housing so you may be able to get it going again with a new housing. You could first test the drive by removing it from the housing and hooking it up to the internal connections of a desktop PC or by using a USB adapter.

Hi, everyone ... I regrettably bought the ugliest refurbished PC in the world with a really weak graphics card because it was cheap. I was given a new graphics card that is slightly better and I wish to install it as soon as I learn how to do it properly ..

My PC was advertised as having nVidia GeForce 9300 graphics card. So I went to 'Device Manager > Display adapters' so that I could uninstall my current one .. but it has TWO ADAPTERS: NVIDIA GeForce 9200 and NVIDIA GeForce 9300 GE. I'm not quite sure what to do so I thought I'd turn to you guys .. Should I uninstall both???

A:Uninstalling video card from refurbished PC

Yes you can uninstall both, but then turn off the computer and install the "new" video card. The operating system should see it when you restart the computer. Go to new video cards support website and download and install the latest driver for the card and your operating system

A:no sound after uninstalling wimamp (did not reboot immediately)

Well. Removing Winamp isn't what killed your sound, and removing without rebooting didn't do it either.

Check your Device Manager and see if you can see your sound card in there. Also be on the lookout for any question marks. I suspect somehow you removed your sound card driver. I'm not sure why your attempt at reinstalling the driver didn't work though, maybe you accidentally got the wrong one? What model number is that presario? Perhaps one of us can find the correct driver for you.

I have an intel 865 motherboard. I am using a sound card audigy zs and have it plugged into a PCI expansion slot. Each time i have opened my computer my sound card stops working and i have to change the PCI expansion slot to make it work again. After that it stops working on that slot, i am down to my 3rd slot out of 4 to hook my sound card up to since the first two dont work for the sound card anymore. I am totally confused by this situation any help will be appreciated if you need more info pls let me know....

A:Help with losing PCI Expansion Slots

Well, The sound card may be frying evrything it gets into. Is this a new card, or have you had it for a while? Check to see if you can still use those pci slots for anything else, because like I said before, its probably frying the slots. Which means you may need to get a new soundcard, and a new motherboard(but both may be under warrenty, so dont worry to much)

Fsecure can not be seen in the Add/removal box and nowhere else in my eyes, but the Nod32 program installation sees it somewhere... I am new here but would be so greatful!

A:Uninstalling fsecure hidden traces - can you help?

First of all, welcome to TS.

There is an officiall fsecure uninstallation tool, you can download its package here:

Caution is required in its use and you are advised to follow instructions carefully. Bear in mind that the tool will not remove F-Secure software if it was installed directly into an unsafe location, such as c:\, c:\windows or c:\program files. This is because it will delete the directory into which F-Secure was installed and, as such, it would also delete the rest of the files.

If you have good technical understanding of computers and fsecure, you can uninstall manually, otherwise I wouldn?t advise it.

Hi, does anyone know how to remove this stubborn product from Windows XP? The usual route of add/remove prgrammes/ remove/restart does not work & neither does contacting Panda tech - I've sent four messages & had no reply. Really grateful if you can help since Panda 2005 has installed itself with errors, I have no firewall/known & unknown threat/fraud protection. I have also tried to re-install with no success. Many many thanks in advance for your help.

A:Uninstalling Panda 2005 IS

Doing some research, I have found many others with similar issues with Panda.

Some were successful using a regedit process.
I do not recommend this, because you can "brick" your system (or nearly so; "bork" at least!).

Others were sucessful by booting into "Safe Mode" and then removing.
For safe mode... On power up, pres f8. this will give you a screen where you can choose "Safe Mode", "Safe Mode with Networking" etc. Choose "Safe Mode".

If neither of these methods are comfortable for you, (and I do not recommend the regedit process, even though Panda support has walked some people through this process), then I would suggest you pose your question in the Virus and Malware forum, and see if our malware experts are up-to-date on an easy way to do it. Broni, or Bobbye, (or ???) may have a quick solution for you. There is normally a backlog and it may take a while for them to get to your request.

I have a thought on how we might proceed but I strongly suspect a regedit may still be required, and I would rather put you in the hands of folks that regularly write scripts for regedits, instead of risking your making a mistake. regedits require great care!

A long title indeed, but it pretty much sums it all up. I have installed Ubuntu first and then dual booted windows XP. I soon found out that the fact Ubuntu wasn't compatible with many programs (even through wine) I wanted only Windows XP on my pc.
I've searched many topics, but all described how to uninstall Ubuntu when Windows was the primary OS. In my case Ubuntu is the main OS and it dual boots with Windows and I want to rid myself of Ubuntu leaving only Windows.

What do I need to do to get the desired computer setup? Or is it irrelevant which OS was installed first and will a guide describing how to remove Ubuntu from windows work as well for my case.

A:Uninstalling Fedora...

It should be possible to simply install XP over Fedora (ie. delete its partition(s), create a new one), then boot with Vista DVD and select "Repair", repair startup items.

If that causes it to boot only to Vista, you can then use its bcdedit to add XP to Vista's boot menu.

Then disconnect from the Internet
Go to Start>Control Panel and go to device manager
Right click your wireless card and click uninstall but don't remove the drivers
restart your PC
then don't reconnect yet. If you have one turn off your router for 10 seconds or so and then turn it back on
then leave the PC to automatically connect...hopefully

Everything seems fine now and im ruinning Comodo which works much better and gives you an actual feeling that Zone alarm let to much in

Just looking for some advise on the above.

Currently running a dual boot setup with Vista and XP. The machine has three hard disks, a 750GB, a 500GB and a 250GB. The 750GB runs Vista, the 500GB runs XP and the 250GB is just used as extra space for either OS.

What I want to do is just remove Vista completely. Is this just a case of formatting the 750GB drive? Will this remove the boot menu at startup though?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks.

1. Is your Vista your first boot drive?
2. Can you boot your 500Gb if you set it as first boot drive?

Today I downloaded PC Accelerator 2004 from this web-site; however, as it did not do much good I soon decided to uninstall it. However, the program has created (or modified, I am not sure) countless files that it left on my computer and the machine (which is certainly not the latest word of technology) is having really hard time coping. I am not computer literate enough to find these files and eliminate them...Please help!!!!!

A:Big problems with uninstalling PC Accelerator 2004!!!!!

pc accelerators for the most part are a joke and most are laden with spyware and adware. The only thing that will speed up your computer is more memory, slight overclocking, defragged hard drive, and a faster cpu.

Use spybot to remove your adware.

Hello Everyone My question strictly volume Uninstalling generic manifests from my OCD but none the less I go to my device manager click on storage volumes and three generic volumes appear I click on update for each one it sends me to a hardware update wizard which asks me to install a floppy or CD and run the test I have no floppy or CD to put in I run the test anyway and I get quot we could not install hardware because we could not find the software quot No problem Everything works fine on my computer However whenever I run a full scan through my security feature ten of the twenty minutes it takes to scan are spent on scanning quot storage volume quot files Are these storage volume files related to the storage volume devices that I m probably not using and if so if I uninstalled these devices would it get rid of said erroneous files thus shortening my scan duration Thanks Daniel nbsp

A:Uninstalling generic volume

Depends on what the storage volumes actually are. Could be these are virtual devices, or drives that are the result of a cord reader with no actual storage medium in it.
I would say you can simply try uninstalling the devices, especially if they are not devices you are using.
Chances are Windows will automatically reinstall them on the next reboot, but you can at least try the scan to see if it affects the scan speed (before you reboot).

Hi all

I want to try installing RedHat again, but I need to uninstall it first.

1. How do you uninstall it?

2. Where exactly is the GRUB boot loader installed?

3. If I remove the Linux partition, will I still be able to use XP?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

A:Uninstalling RedHat 9, how do you do it?

1. You don't have to uninstall to get a clean start with RedHat. You can decide during the install process whether you want to leave your old installation intact or to reformat/repartition. Depending how you configured your bootloader you may not be able to boot Windows after wiping the Linux partition and you have to use the Windows Recovery Console to fix it if you don't intend to put Linux back.

2. GRUB is smeared all over the place really.. The code that starts GRUB is either in the Master Boot Record of your HD (a special place where the computer looks for something to run when it has started up) or the boot sector of your Linux partition (a special place where some program from the Master Boot Record may instruct the computer to look for something else to run). GRUB configuration is stored in the /boot directory of your Linux installation. Other GRUB utilities (for installing and configuring it) are on your Linux system partition.

3. Yes

i am new to this site and new to forums all together but i really need help

i have 2 hdd
one has xp pro sp2 on it
and the other is partitioned half way with linux Ubuntu on it

i want to uninstall GRUB and Ubuntu but i dont have a boot cd so i made one using this guide
in the guide it tells you to copy your i386 folder to w/e file they want you to put it in.
my question is... is it just a matter of uninstalling grub or do i have to reinstall a windows boot loader and if i do have to reinstall a windows boot loader is this boot cd going to do that for me.

i just really dont want to boot my pc and be throwing $180 out the window

i would really appreciate your help.


A:Problem uninstalling ubuntu dual boot

i'm pretty sure you can just insert your original windows disk and use the recovery console and then use the command "fixmbr." (without the quotes or full stop of course).

this will replace GRUB with the original windows bootloader and you should be able to boot into windows normally, without the choice of Ubuntu.

that said, this method doesnt remove or delete your Ubuntu partition or setup. it just leaves it there in a slightly inaccessible state, which is not a bad thing if you later decide you would like to reactivate it and have another crack. its also a good hiding spot for some of your 'sensitive stuff!'

if you're feeling brave and wanna start deleting unwanted partitions later (read my other posts!!), then you can do this from inside windows once you have it booting normally with windows MBR (master boot record).

try this site out, this guys pretty switched on..

but remember, when mucking about with partitions and stuff "there are two kinds of people in this world, those who backup, and those who've never lost a hard drive."

A:Uninstalling Ubunta

So you don't want to keep anything on the hard drive?

Windows is not so good at working with non-Windows partition tables..

In Linux, write zeroes to the beginning of the hard drive to make the partition table go away (you can use the rescue mode (or whetever it is called) on the Ubuntu install CD). Do something like "dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/hda bs=1024 count=1024"

Or just get DBAN from and let it run up to 1%

I was trying to repair a friend's computer and uninstalled service pack 2. After uninstall it went to reboot and just began an endless loop and wouldn't reboot. It won't boot to safe mode. When trying to boot off the CD, it asks for the administrator password. The owner has no clue as he has never set an admin password or ever needed one. Any ideas here? If I can boot from the cd I can try system restore as I'm sure whatever I did uninstalling SP2 obliterated the registry in some way. Is there a generic admin password? We tried "admin".

Okay, so I think we can all agree that previous versions of Windows would wear and tear over time and get slower than when you first installed it. A lot of people have said that this is because of the way that the OS uninstalls programs and how it leaves behind certain registry keys. Does anyone know if they have fixed this problem?

I heard a developer discussing this subject about a year or so before the Windows 10 was released, but I haven't found any articles of anyone claiming it has been fixed. Can we hope for a faster and more junk-free future?

This question is for any Windows or at least Vista and 7.
How do you know how to be sure to put Registry back the way it was after uninstalling any software?    Uninstalling a software program maybe will not always put the Registry back the way it was before installing the software.   How do you know what the changes were and be sure they get put back as before?    I do not know how Registry works and I do not know how to backup or restore Registry.
So far no current or suspected problem.  I just ask so that maybe I would later know how.

A:uninstalling including checking and adjusting registry

As time passes your registry will inevitably end up with many extra...or "orphan" keys and subkeys. BUT unless you are having some sort of an issue, they are not a problem.  All these so called "registry cleaners" do NOTHING to improve performance, as your system will function just fine by leaving them where they are.
I will recommend CCleaner, which I've been using for many years.  It's the most reliable cleanup tool out there..remove all kinds of leftover files and junk that you don't need.  
It does have a registry cleaner, which removes orphaned entries, and I've never had any problems with it... but be sure to say yes when it asks you if you want to back up the .reg files. 
NOTE: If you do install CCleaner, go to options>monitoring and uncheck the active monitoring feature. It's new and unnecessary. just clean up your system when the mood strikes you.  
PS...Ignore the " Advanced options" under the Windows tab.

I was uninstalling some Nikon camera programs and after the third one when I went for the fourth there was no uninstall or change repair options as usual. I am totally baffled. I rebooted, nothing. Still no buttons. Whah??? How can I get my uninstall buttons back?

I am having a lot of problems uninstalling RegCleanPro. A computer tech support person installed it for me to help with a problem I was having, but did not tell me it cost. When I found out, I tried to uninstall, but I keep getting a message that says something to the affect of cannot uninstall, a certain something is missing. Please help.

A computer support person installed a registry cleaner for you? Wow. First thing I'd do is get my money back.

As for uninstalling it, it would be helpful to know what the "certain something" is.

i have 2 partions on my computer. a 125 gb one and a 172 gb one. i have windows vista installed to the 125 gb one is there any way to take space from the 172 and add to 125 without reinstalling windows.

Thanks in advance just to let yall know this is by far the most helpful website on the web

A:Add Space To Partion Without Uninstalling Windows

Go to Start and type in "diskmgmt.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter

Right click on the partition that you wish to extend (the 125 gB one) and select "Extend".
Follow the wizard to allow it to take from the other partition to do this.

This presumes that both partitions are on the same physical disk. If not, then you'll have to look into the options to span volumes.

Good Day

Everytime I try to open a new office document (eg word or excel) the desktop opens as a folder. Also everytime my computers is booted up the desktop opens as a folder. This is not in my start up options so I'm not seeing a way to take it off. I tried uninstalling microsoft office to re-install it but it is not uninstalling. It keeps saying it was not uninstalled properly. I also tried re-installing microsoft office even though it is already there and it keeps saying setup has stopped working. I am running vista home edition and microsoft office 2007. My anti virus avira says there are no viruses and I had avast anti virus before which also found no viruses.

Can someone help me please? I'm not sure what to do in this situation. Can you make some suggestions please?

A:Microsoft Office is not opening or uninstalling

1) What do you mean "the desktop opens as a folder"?

2) What is new or different since the last time everything worked properly (ie, new hw, new sw, virus, error, etc)?

Hello everyone I m going to be very detailed with this If it seems excessive I m just trying to get an answer out of this I m also going to try to remember everything I ve tried but theres a lot Due to personal preference I switched my browser to Firefox a year ago and have loved it ever since Recently I have been getting a few popups while on the Serious IE8 uninstalling problem after internet and Serious problem after uninstalling IE8 each time they would Serious problem after uninstalling IE8 open up in an IE browser so I just decided to uninstall it altogether since I never used it in the first place I went to Add Remove Programs and found IE went through the basic uninstall process etc At one point it warned me that a select few of my programs installed might be affected by the removal but I didn t see any reason why some of them would be affected by me uninstalling a browser so I went on ahead anyway After it was done it told me that I should restart my computer to finish the removal process but as I was still using my computer at the time I clicked quot no quot The next day today I turned on my computer to find my desktop completely blank without any desktop icons nor a taskbar All that was visible was my desktop background and I am unable to right-click the desktop and so of course explorer exe was not running I CAN open up task manager though and was able to access firefox exe that way Thank you Mozilla However whenever I type my first letter in the quot open quot box of New Task I m hit with the error message quot The ordinal could not be located in the dynamic link library iertutil dll quot This error message comes up when i delete one letter from a previously typed program in the quot open quot box It comes up when I turn my computer on at the welcome screen and it comes up multiple times when I try opening things with task manager however for the most part I am able to get past it When trying to run explorer exe I m hit with multiples of the same error message usually - The first ones at the top says quot Windows Task Manager taskmgr exe - Ordinal Not Found quot and on the very last one at the top it says quot explorer exe - Ordinal Not Found quot So I did some researching of iertutil dll and it seemed that everyone who has a similar problem has a different ordinal number One fix required me to replace iertutil so I downloaded a new one and after renaming the original to iertutilBACKUP dll I placed it in the system folder This did not do anything and I still have the error messages I tried registering it with Regsvr iertutil dll but i get the error message quot iertutil dll was loaded but the DllRegisterServer entry point was not found The file can not be registered quot I next ran Malwarebytes Antimalware to see if a virus was causing this It found infected files and deleted them but none were the cause of the problem I ran AVG afterwards and it found none At some point I gave up with trying to fix the error message and tried to reinstall IE again so I downloaded the exe off microsoft s website an tried installing again In the beginning it says that IE is already installed on my computer which leads me to suspect that something happened during the uninstall process but i clicked on the option that said something like quot Create another unremovable copy quot After a few minutes of waiting for it to install and it completely skips the malware search in the order of events in the installation it just flat-out says that Internet Explorer could not be installed If i remember correctly it also says quot Setup could not verify the integrity of the file Update inf Make sure the Cryptographic service is running on this computer quot I tried installing IE just to see if i d get different results but it said I had a newer version of internet explorer already on my computer and just stops In the program files folder I found a folder labeled quot Internet Explorer quot I tried deleting it but the computer refused to I ran mu...

I have not had a single BSOD on my system running Windows XP Home since literally Today I uninstalled some software I uninstalled a PC web camera driver and software and also uninstalled some VIA motherboard update software I haven't used this software some time and it is not even set to auto-run when Windows starts up I also ran the registry cleaner in Piriform's CCleaner before restarting Upon restarting I was greeted with a BSOD Stop error x B xF E xC x x No other information Using the recovery console I have attempted chkdsk r and fixboot No fix I have not tried fixmbr I also attempted to Drivers After BSOD Uninstalling Software + XP use system restore through the recovery console I only have one recent restore date to try which was made when I uninstalled the VIA update software I followed the steps provided here iframe and they did not help me I still get the BSOD when restarting Last known good figuration and safe mode also result XP BSOD After Uninstalling Software + Drivers in the same BSOD Specs Asus K VSE Deluxe Motherboard AMD Processor Seagate mb SATA harddrive ATI X Pro Video Creative Audigy ZS Audio She's an older system but that really isn't to blame there is no hardware issue here it must be a result of the programs and drivers I uninstalled via add remove programs or the registry cleaning process I have used the registry cleaning process hundreds of times previously and never had a problem though Can anyone help I'm trying to save this without having to install XP all over again either by format or by repair installation Thank you

A:XP BSOD After Uninstalling Software + Drivers

1) Registry Cleaners CAUSE problems, they do not cure them. I suggest you run the UNDO function in the registry cleaner and then never use it again.
2) What VIA mother board software did you uninstall? Look in Device Manager. Are there any yellow or red symbols?
3) Download BlueScreenView:
unzip downloaded file and double click on BlueScreenView.exe to run the program.
when scanning is done, go to EDIT - Select All
Go to FILE - SAVE Selected Items, and save the report as BSOD.txt
Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all of the content, and paste it into your next reply

HP Mini 110 running Windows XP with a version of Avast, tried rebooting my netbook after removing Roxio Backontrack from add/remove programs. 
When I select 'Start Windows Normally', the windows loading screen shows up but then it goes to black and nothing happens. When I try to boot in any sort of safe mode, it runs down the list of drivers that it's loading and hangs up on aswrvrt.sys indefinitely.
If anyone has any ideas, that would be great. Thanks!

I got this used computer with XP on it. I tried to uninstall some games to gain more disk space. I tried uninstalling with Add/Remove Pro and Ccleaner, but some just won't uninstall. Windows will not do it either. So I was wondering if I can just delete the folders that they are in? Some folders are as much as 2.5 GB. Other than not being able to play the games, could there be some other problem?

No, not if they install with entries in the registry. You can use Revo Uninstaller - it should do the job

So, I'm trying to clean up some unused programs on a Win 7 machine but after I removed "AnyProtect by CMI limited" then "CWA Reminder by We-Care" but when I went to uninstall the next unused program and no matter what I try to uninstall I get an error saying "Windows Installer Service could not be accessed" and the program cancels the uninstallation process.  I've checked msconfig and it says that Windows Installer is stopped.  I tried doing SFC scan in the CMD prompt and that came back clean and I tried to re-register the program using the command prompt in both locations that its found.  Any other ideas??

"Windows Installer Service could not be accessed" does not mean your computer is infected. It may be corrupted, you may be missing certain values in the registry, and it could also be a problem with permissions.

I have Rising Antivirus Free on my Windows Home Server and I cannot uninstall it. Under the Control Panel, it's not even listed under the add/remove programs list and under the Start menu, there's an Uninstall link but clicking it does nothing. Does anyone know a way to get it removed without damaging anything in the process?

A:Trouble Uninstalling Rising Antivirus Free

Have you tried using Revo Uninstaller ?


Choose either the freeware version or Pro 30 day trial version

The pro version will remove programs that are 64 bit . OS bit does not matter it's the Software bit that matters
Install the program . Launch the program click on Rising Antivirus Free and choose Uninstall . Choose Adanced mode and click on next . If you get the builtin Uninstaller of the Antivirus use that to remove the program once that is done go back to Revo Uninstaller and click next . It will scan for left over files in the registry click on Select All and click on the Delete button . Then click Next . It will scan for some more left over files if it locates those do the same click on select all and choose Delete. Once you're done click on Next . That should remove the program from your PC .

I have very carefully uninstalled all of the windows updates that I have found relating to both the installation of Win 10 as well as the recent MS telemetry updates for Win 7. My question is that if I have none of these now appearing under installed updates will my Win 7 computer be completely free of any effect that the uninstalled updates might have had?

I ask this because even after I uninstalled KB3035583 the GWX file remained in the System 32 folder and eventually enabled Win 10 to attempt an install on my computer even though I had set windows update to download, but allow me to approve installation. Fortunately the installation failed, but I remain concerned about the possible lingering effects of the other updates that were once installed and then uninstalled might still have on my computer?
