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.)

I recently got an adsl connection in my house (woohoo) and i share the connection with one other computer through a router/modem.
When i am updating or refreshing my server list in counterstrike or day of defeat, it will start the process of collecting the number of servers and start viewing their details, then it will stop on one game server and fail to load anymore, giving me a list of about 300 games (CS) or about 6 day of defeat games and the connection will be dead, i will then have to restart the router and my computer in order to get connected to the net again.

Please help as i am sick of playing on the same servers... its driving me KERRRAZY!

A:HP And Dell Printer Compatibility Lists

I just looked at the HP page for the LaserJet 4100. I installed the 4100 using Windows 8 but that included a PS driver only. The HP page suggests their Universal Printer Driver (UPD) would supply PCL 6 support. But when I go to the UPD download page, Windows 8 is not offered as a supported operating system version.

So it's either try the Windows 7 UPD or wait until HP updates either the driver, or the documentation, for Windows 8.

Has anyone tried the UPD driver for Windows 7 on Windows 8?

A:NET VIEW IN CMD PROMPT Lists Server name and another not wanted.

If you are genuinely concerned about this then simply adopt a new, strong network key. WEP is the weakest of the security protocols so if your router supports WPA then I would also suggest using that instead.

Why use net view? It's what is showing as connected under Network in Windows Explorer that matters. I just tested net view by turning off the two other computers on the LAN here and then running the net view command. Both continued to be listed, along with my NAS - the only remaining connected device, though the other two did disappear after a reboot.

A:Virus Total lists malware in software recommended by BC!

This are false positives by the anti-virus. Bleeping Computer's hosted programs for download are trustworthy, safe and malware-free.Certain embedded files that are part of legitimate programs and specialized fix tools may at times be detected by some anti-virus and anti-malware scanners as suspicious, a Risk Tool, Hacking Tool, Potentially Unwanted Program, a possible threat or even Malware (virus/trojan) when that is not the case. This occurs for a variety of reasons to include the tool's compiler, the files it uses, whether files are compressed or packed, what behavior (routines, scripts, etc) it performs, any registry strings it may contain and the type of security engine that was used during the scan. Other legitimate files which may be obfuscated, encrypted or password protected in order to conceal itself so they do not allow access for scanning but often trigger alerts by anti-virus software.When flagged by an anti-virus or security scanner, it's because the program includes features, behavior or files that appear suspicious or which can potentially be used for malicious purposes. Compressed and packed files in particular are often flagged as suspicious by security software because they have difficulty reading what is inside them. These detections do not necessarily mean the file is malicious or a bad program. It means it has the potential for being misused by others or that it was simply detected as suspicious or a threat due to the security program's heuristic analysis engine which provides the ability to detect possible new variants of malware. Anti-virus scanners cannot distinguish between "good" and "malicious" use of such programs, therefore they may alert you or even automatically remove them. In these cases the detection is a "false positive" and can be ignored.Most of the well known specialized tools we use against malware are written by experts/Security Colleagues at various security forums like Bleeping Computer, TechSupport, GeeksToGo, Emsisoft and other similar sites so they can be trusted...this includes any program hosted by BC for download. Unfortunately, many of these tools are falsely detected by various anti-virus programs from time to time for the reasons noted above. This in turn sometimes results in an inaccurate site rating/warning of potentially dangerous software when that is not the case.The problem is really with the anti-virus vendors who keep targeting these embedded files and NOT with the tools themselves. We can inform the developers but they have encountered this issue many times before and in most cases there isn't much they can do about it. Once the detection is reported to the anti-virus vendor, they are usually quick to fix it by releasing an updated definition database.

We have an MSI all-in-one PC with touchscreen I'm hoping to find a software package to centralize the happenings in our home I've done some searching but I don't really know where to start We're hoping to find a software package that - Checks multiple accounts for new mail - Present a memo board so we can leave each other short messages - Track a calendar so we can all add and update appointments - Warn of upcoming birthdays chores that are due garbage day etc - When idle show photos a clock alerts etc - software; for lists, calendar.. centralized Home chore Memo's, Looking Shopping list - Works with the touch screen for most functions - Eventually will control the X or ZWave power controllers for lights etc basically replacing the whiteboard on our fridge the calander on the wall the constant nagging the kids to do their chores and the lack of communication Looking for centralized Home software; Memo's, chore lists, calendar.. between us when we set up appointments etc Does anyone know of software that does this How about some Google search terms that might find some results Thanks

A:Looking for centralized Home software; Memo's, chore lists, calendar..

I doubt you will find a single software package that can do everything you are asking for.

A few questions you should answer:
You have a single "Home PC", not a "Home Server" with multiple client PC's, correct?
Do more than one person need to use this single PC at the same time?
Does everybody log in and use the same Windows user account?
Are there any restrictions for some users such as children, or does everybody have Administrator authority?
Are you looking for a free solution, or are you willing to pay $$$?
Are you willing and capable to put in whatever time and effort is needed to accomplish all this.
MS Office Outlook email client can do a lot of what you want, but it is not free.
Windows Live Mail and Thunderbird are free, but have fewer features and capability.
Some of this might be done with Windows security and permissions, depending on how you are using User accounts and storing data.

You may be able to find a Business or Individual in your area that specializes in Home Automation that can help you, but it will not be free.

I hope I'm wrong and someone knows of a package like you want, but I believe if such a software package exists, it would be well known and used by a LOT of people, including me.

Hope this helps,

Software makes stolen PCs useless
Two companies team to offer a computer-protection technology based in a machine's BIOS software--designed to disable a stolen computer once its hooked up to the Net.

A:Software makes stolen PCs useless

So its bound to the bios?
I guess a bios flash would rid the theft guard?

I think IBM got the closest back in the late 90's to locking computers from wouldbe theives. (they may still impliment this.)

They created an additional onboard chip the stored the passwords for the bios. When the user enabled all the bios password protection features (most notably the boot password required to start the bios sequence) would lock the computer from booting.

Anyone who didn't know the password couldn't boot the machine and a bios flash would not reset the passwords because it was on an independent chip. The only way to reset the password was to replace the chip... much harder than a bios flash.

I always thought it was a great protection feature... although completely not suitable for anysort of corporate enviroment where each user would need to now the password. The biggest problem though was the average user forgetting the password and effectively locking themselves out of the machine. So anyone who wanted to unlock the computer had to be handy with a soldering iron, or take the PC to the repair shop. Obviously not user friendly.

The printer gives me an error message of mechanism problem, check paper jam or an obstruction. I have checked many times and I see nothing interfering with it. I did a cold reboot and unplugged it and re-plugged it. I dont know what else to do.

Does anybody have any ideas what might be causing it ? And how to fix it.

I have a really odd problem and I was wondering if someone has had similar issues.

I can start Black Ops (the new call of duty game) fine, connect to a server etc, but after playing for some time, I can't see the server list and I can't visit any web sites unless I restart my router (which is a gateway to my modem) and then everything is fine until I play some games, then I can't refresh the server list or open up any websites again. The game and ventrilo runs fine even after the server browser/websites stop working.

I have a Linksys WRT54GL router, and I have little experience with networking apart from the basics.

It used to have more start up software then now today, i don't know what might have caused or why it happen. I try reformating it again and same result. For some reason the Radeon 9250 series don't seem to work on my computer. Everytime when it reach to the desktop, the screen go idle-like. It's just blank black like the computer is not even turn on. But somehow the mouse function and the keyboard works. I can turn off my computer with the buttons and mouse click works. Just my screen goes blank black. Might there be some software i'm missing that cause this problem?

A:What software makes the graphics card work?

Umm yes the drivers

Anyway, presently the Monitor refresh rate is set too high in Windows (not in the Monitor itself) and therefore it won't display (being above the Monitors max level)

So you will need to go to Safe mode
By repeatively pressing the F8 key on Windows initial startup
Then select Safe Mode
And log on to an Administrator account

Then go to Device Manager
Start-Run-> Devmgmt.msc
Then remove the Display adaptor device (right click uninstall or remove)
Then restart to Normal mode again

Then download the drivers from Radeon support driver page

After I run CCleaner and reboot, I get a dialog window that starts to install files for HP Photo and Imaging 2 for my HP officejet 4110v all in one printer. When it can't find the files because the CD isn't loaded, it gives an error. When I close it out it does this repeatedly then stops. If I load the CD, it solves the issue until I run CCleaner again.

I would like to hear from someone familiar with CCleaner who can tell me what settings to change in it before running it so I don't have to go through this over and over again.

I have some sensitive material on my computer which I would not like others to see. So, I'd like to know how to exclude some folders and files from lists like recent items, jump lists, etc. Is it possible?

A:How to exclude files and folders from "Recent" lists and jump lists

Welcome to Seven Forums Stawan. It's possible to turn off the recent items in the jumplists of specific programs. But it's a laborious process. I will describe it, but you'll have to do the legwork.

The Jump lists for each program are stored in

C:\Users\(User name)\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\AutomaticDestinations

as automaticDestination-ms files with random names.

To figure out which file belongs to which program , you'll have to do some detective work.

For instance, you could open a video with your media player program.

Change the AutomaticDestinations folder into Detail view and Sort by Date Modified.

Only one or two of the files should be showing as modified in the past minute. One may be a list of recently viewed folders, the other should be your program.

Delete one of the files then try to open your program's jump list. If it is gone, you have the right file.

Once you have identified the right file, restore it from recycle bin and set the file properties to Read-only. This will disable the jump list for that file. You'll need to do this for all the programs you want to exclude from jump lists.

As you can see, this would be a long and lengthy process, you'd be better off creating a password protected user. Good luck. A Guy

I produce documents for use in another office where they have an OKI6200dn printer but I can't load the software/drivers for that printer onto my Win 7 64x as I can't get passed the 'search' for the printer (which clearly is not here). I have down loaded the latest drivers for this OS.

A:Installing printer software withour printer

Hi potshot. Welcome to SevenForums.

Go to Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Devices and Printers.

Click on "add printer"

Then click on "add a network,wireless or bluetooth printer"

Click on "The printer I want isn't listed"

You will then be given the option to find a printer by name or TCP/IP address.

By browsing you should be able to add the printer in your other office

Hope this helps.

Have an older HP C parallel port printer and a new Toshiba laptop with Windows and no parallel ports Bought a parallel to USB cable but it doesn't work prints gibberish Was wondering if there is a way to hook up a wireless print server Using printer to access server printer?? old with parallel port and use the printer that way Unfortunately live in a rural area and still using a slow phone Internet connection But couldn't this setup be just a simple LAN with no Internet just signal from computer through wireless print server to old printer Would this work Apparently info from HP forums Windows does have drivers available for this old HP printer Would appreciate any thoughts on this Thanks P S I know I know why not buy a new printer But I don't print much and have been refilling cartridges for years and they work great Could buy a wireless parallel print server for instead of buying a new printer with expensive cartridges that can't be refilled and dry up when not being used

A:Using printer server to access old printer??

Yes it can be setup as just a LAN, no internet.
you don't need a internet connection to have a home LAN. But what you will need, or maybe not need but it would be useful, is a router. But you can get by without one of those.

Problem is if that printer does not have any internal memory, and from my recollection that series HP printer did not have any internal memory, printing will be very slow if it works at all connected to a print server.

Most Print servers do not have any internal memory either so everything has to be done, processed, on the PC. Which isn't a problem when the printer is connected directly to a computer.

What you might try is using your old computer as a host for that printer. That way it will use the memory in that PC to handle the print jobs. Then network the 2 PC together in a home LAN. Using just a basic Ethernet switch will help.

Post back with comments on my suggestions and I'll try to give you instruction on how to set it up.
It would be easier and cheaper, in the long run, to just go and buy a newer printer that will work with your new notebook and operating system. Basic printers are cheap these days.
God I just looked at basic HP printers and they start at 29.99 and with WiFi 59.99.

I have a Kodak AIO printer I purchased also a Belkin wireless print server to allow me to send documents from my laptop to print out upstairs on the Kodak However having tried to set the server Printer & Print server up with no luck I can now find no information to say that the kodak supports a server I know it will definately take a bluetooth adaptor however my laptop does not have bluetooth installed Belkin website says to press quot white quot reset test button on back of server once all wires connected and this will print out Printer & Print server IP address to allow me to set up tcp ip port There is no white button but a black button on the server but pressing this does nothing Wondering if there is any workaround for this or whether I should just return server Also if anyone has the Kodak does yours power down itself after not used for mins or so anyway of stopping this happening Thanks Gill nbsp

A:Printer & Print server

The current line of Kodak printers are based on an Epson design, with the print heads mounted separately inside the machine, and use a cold-ink delivery system - this means it uses an acrylic based in its inks as a drying agent. What this all means is to preserve the print heads so they don't dry out prematurely, the unit will power down automatically so that the heat the system creates does not dry it out. So the answer is no.

As for the print servers, is the Kodak associated with another computer, or is the laptop the only thing working with it? If it is with another computer, you can always use it as the print server with less fuss than adding a wireless one.

But, if the Belkin is the way to go, they do work well, having used one, though not all models want to work with AIOs, since the scanning option usually messes things up. Have you tried Belkin's 800 number? They've been pretty good in the past at working out kinks in their machines. You should have gotten a form with it in your package.

autorun.inf files do not contain any driver information. You either have to look for the proper .inf file somewhere deeper or run the setup program from the driver disk.

Also, it is always a good idea to download the latest driver from the internet instead of using the hopelessly dated drivers provided on CDs.

The samsung Ml-1430 printer which I have been using on this same system for years, disappeared and will not re install. The error I get is RPC server is unavailable. It's connected via usb and the usb ports are working.

I am not very knowledgeable about computers, so please, if you think you can help me, talk to me like II'm an idiot, otherwise, it is truly all greek to me.

First thanks for all the help you guys have given me in the past. I just bought a new printer (HP psc-1510) and I would like to hook it up to the network via a print server or some other means so that I do not need to have a computer on 24/7. The printer, typical of HP, only has a USB port, not a parallel one and as such, it seems like most of the cheap options go out the window. What would be the cheapest way to do this and does anyone know of any rebates or sales which would help to do so? I have a wireless G network via a linksys compact router with a computer hardwired and a laptop wirelessly connected. Thanks all

I'm faced with a technical problem and I hope I can get a definitive answer here

I have a D-Link three-port print server and it has 2x LPT and 1x USB for ports.
My major LPT printer just said "Sayonara" and is "in the bin" now so I'm facing the problem of connecting up its replacement which is USB-only

I see there are several powered adapters out there that would allow me to map an LPT port to USB, e.g. male connector towards the port, USB A towards the printer for a standard connection.
Will this work on a print server or are these adapters only for the PC parallel port?

Thanks for any help.

I want to hook my printer up to my server so that I can print to it from any computer on my network. The problem is my printer does not have drivers for Server 2003 and the XP drivers, or any other OS version of the drivers, won't install for 2003. My printer is a HP Photosmart 7600. I don't care if the server can print to it or not, but I do want my laptops to be able to print to it. Anyone know of a way I can do this? I've thought about putting a wireless adapter onto the printer, but that would cost money, and I don't like to spend money

I have Windows Vista, verizon wireless router, netgear printer server and a canon 190 all-in-one printer. When I install the printer sever it connects to the router no problem. It also connects to the printer but the name under LPT1 port says the printer is unknown. I have re-installed and rebooted many times. It will not print, it says the printer is offline. The wireless laptop we have sometimes prints but not always.
(This server was previously connected to my old computer and it worked).
I just triied to reinstall again and now it doesn't complete connecting to the wireless server.
I have spend many hours on this and I could really use some help. Thanks

So I'm havng problems with printers on a Terminal Server, I tried googling for results but most only cover setting the default printer. So the default printer set-up is fine and users can access the printers set the default log off, and it remembers it. But any preferences set are forgotten.

So we use a user box setting where each user has there own box to print to. But as soon as we close preferences the printer reverts to it's default settings. We can create favourite settings and it will hold the settings but not default to it.

Is there away we can make it so that we can set each users preferences save

I have a Canon ip6600d printer. I just purchased and set up my
dell 8500 desktop computer that has Windows 8 loaded on it, which
has caused me much distress when installing all my other hardware
and software.

I've downloaded the updated Canon printer drivers, and somehow when I launch
my Canon Easy Photo Print Software, it prompts me with:
"Operation cannot be continued because a printer supporting Photo Print
is not installed".

My printer IS installed and running no problem.
Any ideas or suggestions?

Thanks so much!


A:Printer Software not seeing Printer

The "the updated Canon printer drivers" are different than the ones that this Canon Easy Photo Print Software is expecting to see. I would give Canon support a call on this one.

A:Software needs for NT 4 Server

I suspect you're going to have serious problems finding new software that is fully supported for Windows NT 4.0.

I don't know of any application that can scan any operating system to determine any type of problem and fix it regardless of corrupt files or registries. It sounds like you're looking for some type of Holy Grail software that fixes all problems. No such thing. Even harder to find utilities that work with an operating system even the maker of which doesn't support it.

I am having a dedicated server and need to know what firewall should I use for securing the server. I mean to say that shall i use a software firewall or a hardware firewall? Which is more effective?

A:What software is better for a web server?

You should use a hardware server; I would say, either get a router that has firewall enabled service or think about IPCOPS distro for linux; If you have an old computer around with two network cards, you can easily setup a firewall with no problem.

Hardware is always the way to go if your going to get a firewall; Cisco ASA or Pix if have alot of computer to protect;

I need to install web server software on my computer so I can preview web pages before uploading them. It saves all of that unnecessary upload time. I used to run XAMPP with XP Pro SP3. But in looking to download it again, it doesn't mention 7 as being compatible. The last OS listed is Vista. I would imagine XAMPP is probably compatible with 7, but I was wondering if anyone had any info on this, or maybe another suggestion for free open source server software I could use with 7?

A:Web Server Software

It is not exactly what you are asking about, but have you considered using Opera Unite? It has a web server function to serve pages directly from your computer, so I imagine that it has some way to preview them also. I don't know if it would allow you to upload them just anywhere though, but I imagine that could be done separately, if needed.

Hello all,

I have a DP-301U print server connected to my network and a Samsung ML-2510. Our most recent print server (also a DP-301U) died about a week ago. I got the new one and installed it, and everything ran fine for about a day and a half.

When I went to the web management console of the DP-301U, it showed the printer status as "off line". I then had to physically power-cycle the printer/disconnect the USB cable. After that, it started working again.

After about three hours though it stopped printing again. I went to the web management console of the DP-301U, and again it showed the printer status as "off line". This time however, no amount of power-cycling would help the printer to be seen as online.

I contacted D-Link tech support, but that call was worthless. Any ideas would be welcome.

A:Print Server only sees printer as offline

Any thoughts at all? Should I exchange it out for a new one? Am I missing some simple option? I'm guessing this may be because of the power save mode the printer can go into? If I disable power save on every PC in the office do you think it will stop (provided I can get it back up)?

Here is the situation;

A friend of mine has a Windows Server 2003 Workstation at his office. He often connects to this Server using Remote Desktop Connection on his laptop from his house to access work files.

He bought a printer that he wants to install on the Server in order to print files in the office and at home using the Server.

What is the best way to accomplish this? Do I just connect to the Server using RDC and log-in as the ADMIN and install the printer and assign an IP based on the router (set the printer to

I have a Belkin F5D7231-4P wireless router with built in print server, I have the printer setup & it prints, but I have no printer status such as ink levels, progress, etc.

I have a desktop which is connected to the router via a cable & a laptop via wireless & they both have the same problem. It's been the same with two different printers, the first being an Epson R300 & now a Canon iP5200.

I had to setup the printer through usb first then add a printing port to the router & when it was connected directly I had printer status. Does anyone know how to get the printer status showing again?

Thanks for any help

A:No 'Printer Status' on router/print server

I don't know the answer to your question; but have a question of my own. Do Epson and Canon say that the printer status is supposed to be available over a network for those two printers? I have an HP "network ready" printer and about the only status is 'connected' or 'not connected.'

I am trying to set up a printer port to access a Linksys PSU4 print server. The print server works fine as it is being used from other computers on my home network. I have been trying to set up a spare eee netbook pc with win 7 print server but cannot set up the HP 5600 print server port. Every time I try to add a print server port to the printer it requires a INF file. I cannot find this file on any of the HP 5600 install disks.
Any suggestions on how to add a print server port. I have searched the web and it appears other people are having the same problem but not very helpful suggestions.

Thanks Bob

Hi guys,

A simple question if you don't mind:
Is that possible to reset a single object queue into a print server on Win2008R2 ?

I have around 1400 printer objects into my server and I was wondering if I can do something else than stopping spooler service (which stops ALL my printers...).

With all the other programs attached to my spooler, it takes around 3 minutes to start and stop the all process!
That's too long for my 6000 users and I usually receive at least 20 phone calls in this gap each time!

Any help would be welcome.

With kind regards

A:How to reset a single queue into printer server ?

Is that possible to have other response than the Google-ad ones here?

Maybe the best answer would have been to say: "No, that's not possible with Microsoft, If you want to do that, choose Novell".

The only way to remove a job in error into a queue is to kill several times the process: "PrintIsolationHost.exe" (if you set your driver into isolation mode)
This will release the handle on the queue which prevent the spooler to delete it after the two attempts.

Thanks for your help!

With kind regards

Hello all, We recently upgraded our print server from server 2000 to server 2003, after the upgrade we have been experiencing a lot of problems with Dell 5200 printers. We are constantly rebooting the print server, we are getting event ID 6161 and 6162 and those have to do with the spooler with an unusual large number of open GDI objects. I am not sure if this is a driver issue or what, does anyone have any suggestions for us?? Thanks
