Preferred Solution: Solved: Cannot get rid of popups, no matter how I've tried

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.)

I'm using Windows 7 Professional and for some reason have been getting lots of popups when visiting sites. Sometimes it's a whole new browser popup and others it's just a flash window in the lower right with a video ad in it.
 
It's really annoying and a couple friends gave advice which hasn't worked yet.
 
I've already ran CCleaner, or something close to that maybe one 'C' I don't know and installed and ran Malwarebytes. Both did find and remove a lot of stuff but hasn't solved the popup problem.
 
I'm hoping someone can help. This is like my last resort. I wish I was McGee on NCIS I would fix these annoying buggers!
 
Just to let you all know I only have internet access at work now. Working on getting internet at home. Probably in a week or two. I work graveyard Wed, Thur, and Fri's so that's only time I can answer. Sorry!
 
Thanks in advance,

A:Multiple Popups doesn't matter what brower?

In many cases these issues are the result of unwanted toolbars, add-ons/plug-ins, and browser extensions which come bundled with other free software you download. They can often be the source of various issues and problems to include Adware, pop-up ads browser hijacking which may change your home page and search engine, and user profile corruption. As such many of them are classified as Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUPs).Some toolbars and Add-ons can be removed from within its program group shortcut in Start Menu > All Programs or by using Add/Remove Programs or Programs and Features in Control Panel, so always check there first.Alternatively, you can use a third-party utility like Revo Uninstaller Free or Portable and follow these instructions for using it. Revo will do a more thorough job of searching for and removing related registry entries, files and folders.Note: Some programs can be difficult to remove if their services and running processes are not disabled or turned off prior to attempting removal because they are in use. As such, it is easier to uninstall after booting into safe mode so there are less processes which can interfere with uninstalling the program.Remove anything else (newly installed programs) you do not recognize.If the program is not listed in Add/Remove or Programs and Features, and there is no uninstaller in the program's folder, the next place to check is your browser extensions and add-ons/plug-ins.How to Disable Extensions in Google Chrome - How to Uninstall Extensions in Google ChromeHow To Disable Individual Plug-ins in Google Chrome <- try only if the above does not workCheck Your Plugins: Keeping your plugins up to date helps Firefox run safely and smoothlyHow to Disable Extensions and Plugins in Firefox - How to Remove Extensions/Uninstall Plugins in FirefoxHow to Disable Extensions in Internet ExplorerHow to Disable Add-ons/Extensions in Internet Explorer, Firefox and Google ChromeHow to Disable all add-ons in Firefox, Internet Explorer

I am attaching an example of a pic I just scanned. Vertical lines have been added to show the problem. The middle portion of the scanned pic between the lines is lighter than the outer portions ( I hope it shows up ). I have cleaned all surfaces, reinstalled scanner software and tried many different photo editing software, all to no avail. Scanner in question is a HP Scanjet 5300C running on XP Pro.

Any ideas besides heaving it into a trash bin and using my Canon?

A:Solved: Network setuo matter

Turn off any firewalls for debugging. If the firewall is the problem, you'll have to configure it to allow access to "trusted zone" addresses. Note that some firewalls must be completely uninstalled to stop them from affecting your networking.

PING each computer by IP address, and if successful, PING by name. You can obtain the IP address of a computer by opening a command prompt (DOS window) and typing IPCONFIG. This should work for any Windows version. A failure here needs to be corrected before you go any farther.

All computers should be in the same workgroup for computer browsing to function properly. File & Print Sharing has to be enabled on any computer you wish to share files or printers from. You also need to actually share the resource in question from My Computer, right click on the drive/printer/folder, and select sharing.

If you encounter difficulties accessing computers that are visible in Network Neighborhood, make sure the computer being accessed has an account with the same name/password as the system connecting to it uses to login.

While the default NetBIOS setting is correct for normal network configurations, it's possible for it to be altered, and it costs nothing to make sure it's correct. NETBIOS over TCP/IP must be enabled for normal network browsing.

I often advise the poster to repair with the XPcd, but people never know what version of windows they have, much less the version install that was used to install (like xp home oem, retail, upgrade / xp pro corp, retail, oem, upgrade...) does if matter in doing a repair if the types don't match, or if the sub flavours don't match either. Must there be an exact match here, or can one get away with it?

Well, my mother brought this computer second-hand and i brought it off her.
It is running Windows XP. It is a "HP Compaq Presario V2000".

Ever since she got it when you press the (Backslash) key is it does (#).
When the (@) button does (") and the (") button does (@).

My friend said that i should "update your drivers". I have checked the HP Website but they do not have the driver.
He then said "there should be a setting in your OS somewhere about redefining keys". But I do not know how.

I am unable to restore my computer to its "factory settings" as i do not have the XP Install CD.

Please Help Me?
 

A:Solved: Matter of the key not typing the right thing.

Remember that for a computer letters don't exist, they're just a series of dots that it puts on the screen in response to a number. Your keyboard is probably built for a different country than XP expects, and so it sends the number corresponding to " but the computer looks up that number for another country and thinks it means @. The solution is to tell the machine what keyboard you actually have. I can't remember this precisely in XP, but the instructions here look familiar.

Hey, I'm building a new gaming PC, and I need to know a few things.
Since you can't buy the Windows 7 32bit/64bit by itself without buying a system from a website, I found a copy of Windows 7 Professional Full on Newegg.com for only $260.
Since Newegg is a US website (I think...), I'd need my copy of Windows 7 shipped to Australia where I live.
Will Windows 7 still work in the same way it would if I bought an Australian copy of Windows 7? I'm mainly referring to the product code it comes with, because I don't want to find that I spent $260 for a product that doesnt work.

Thanks in advance.

How old is the PC?

If Asus did not provide you with a installation CD, how did you go about reinstalling Windows 8?

How long did you give it before you shut it down?

Hello, I'm trying to delete an ISO file from my Windows7 32bit computer. It is a Windows8 64bit preview ISO file. When ever I try to delete it, it says that it can't because "the file is open in the system". No, it is not "Read Only". Yes, I did try doing this w/o UAC turned on. I have search the iNet for countless days to avail. Oh also, I was able to extract it to a virtual disc (MagicDisc), how do I delete the files from this disc? When I try it says I "don't have the administrative properties". I tried to make everything NOT "Read Only" but when I do this, it says that I "don't have the administrative properties to do this". (I am the admin on my pc) Please help!

A:[SOLVED] Files refuse to delete, no matter what.

Do you have an ISO program open like MagicISO or PowerISO, perhaps Daemon tools open or perhaps a virtual disk active. Check Computer for a virtual disk, and task manager for an ISO type program that may be open. If so end the task or disable the virtual disk then try deleting the file again.

I have got a new computer and just migrated to Win XP. My old Lexmark Z12 printer did not come with XP drivers so I was about to install an XP driver for my Lexmark Z12 printer.

I had just downloaded it from the Lexmark web page - but when I commenced - a window popped up saying that the driver was not stamped by Windows and therefore it might corrupt my system - so a chickened out.

Given that the driver came from Lexmark - does anyone have any thoughts on whether or not the driver would be OK - or should I just forget it

A:[SOLVED] Drivers Marked as Not Windows Stamped - Does this matter

Lmao, don't listen to that. Install it anyways. The windows stamp thing is useless IMO, just install the drivers you need.

My father's laptop crashed, and we need a solution quickly to get him back to work.

We recently backed up his Outlook 2003 and we need a way to find him a quick solution and get it up and running on Windows Mail (his laptop is from a company that hasn't provided Outlook as part of his Office).

A:No Matter What I Do...

Hi and welcome to TSG,

Download this: http://downloads.subratam.org/FINDnFIX.exe
Extract it (it should autoextract to C:\FindnFix when you double click it)

Go to the C:\FindnFix folder and doubleclick on !LOG!.BAT and let it run. It will generate a log.txt file. Copy and paste log.txt back here in your next reply.

my ask is included into attachment image

A:what is matter

I think WINRE_DRV and System_DRV are 2 hidden partitions required on GPT disks that are used with Windows. They were likely placed there during the Windows installation by default.

In that situation, you don't want C to be active.

As far as I know, you can convert a GPT disk to MBR, but I think you have to remove all partitions first.

Not sure about the above as I don't use GPT disks.

Hi i'm clearly new here and was hopping to get some thoughts.I was told that a strong enough magnet would disrupt my wireless cam and was wondering if that was true?
 

A:Help on this matter

Hello and welcome to TSG.
Well im no expert on magnets or magnetism, but as far as i am aware anything to do with magnets (either natural, manufactured or electromagnetic), and anything electrical should always be avoided as much as possible. Even such minor things as "coiling up" excess cables can effectively turn themselves into electromagnets and thus disrupt electrical fields. So i would say yes it is possible. Whether the magnetic field disrupts the actual signal or the cam itself, i cannot say.

I have 4X512 dimms of Kingston, PC3200 400MHz, dual channel mode.

Because they are in AMD environment (Athlon 64 3200+, 2GHz, Asus A8V-Deluxe s.939), my timings are just 3-3-3-8. Also its 2T(instead of 1T), 333MHz(instead of 400). They told my that I cannot do anything to change these numbers, because I have 4 sticks in amd platform.

So, I m thinking of buy 2 new kingstons of 1GB each(2X1GB), replacing the existings 2X512. After that I ll have totally 3 GBs of ram (2X512, 2X1024) Of course I ll put them in the right position so that I ll have dual channel mode(1st module:512, 2nd:1024, 3rd:512, 4rth:1024).

The queries are:
Is it a good idea to make such a movement?
Will timings be better? Will I have T1 and 400MHz?
How much improvement shall I see? 20%? 30%? 50%?

Hey! If my computer has DDR2 RAM in it, does it matter what kind of memory is on the gaming video card?? Should it be DDR2 as well, or can it be DDR3? I just wanted to make sure.
 

A:Does this matter?

The memory type on the graphics card is independent of the memory type in RAM. It can be DDR3 even if you have DDR2 RAM.

I would appreciate if someone would explain the significance of DVD regions. I rented an old movie from my local library. When I tried to play it on my Windows 7 machine, there was a message that the DVD was purchased in region 1, my computer DVD drive was set for region 2, and I needed to change the region. Since there is a limited number of region changes that can be made, I decided not to make the change and did not watch the movie.
 
Would someone please explain the technical background as to why regions matter? And why did Microsoft decide to limit the number of region changes for Windows 7?

A:DVD regions - why do they matter?

1.  Just read what Wikipedia has to say about region codes yourself.
 
2.  If you use VLC Media Player it will play any region code DVD without a fuss.

im trying to upload a photo and it wont let me because the require a photo less than 500kb abd ub jpeg my photo seems to be bigger than that how do i make it smaller? i have kodak easyshare software, thank you
 

A:size does matter

gettingthere said:

abd ub jpeg my photo Click to expand...

pardon?

to reduce the size of an image you just need an image editor of some description, the professional app of choice is of course photoshop, which has an extremely useful 'save for web' function that performs this task.

The more widely available (ie cheaper) app is paintshop pro, which you can d/l a demo from jasc.com.

I wouldn't be surprised however, if you existing kodak easyshare had some facility to reduce the (physical) size of an image, is there an option on one of the menus or toolbars to reduce the pixel size and/or the dpi resolution? You may find your photo is currently in several megapixels; the default maximum for the camera that took the photo. If it's just to be used for browsing onscreen, eg on a webpage or similar, then it only needs to be 72pdi which would save a massive amount of file space.

Seeing that this is your first post, I will say "welcome to TechSpot"!

Next, I know this has you a bit miffed, I've been down your road of computer frustration at one time or another, but your going to have to give us a little bit more information.

How about a small list of all your components?
What type of case your trying to install of this in?
What is your power supply, and what is it's rating?
What Operating System are you using here?

Maybe a slight "step by step" of what you did prior to uninstalling the I.D.E. DVD drive, through that, to installing the SATA DVD drive. If your suspicions are true, and you think that you missed something minor, doing a small 'step by step" thing sometimes takes care of these sort of thing.

So please get back to us, we are here to help!

i think you are going to have to take the side off and check for any loose connections. make sure if theres a video card that its seated properly .
if you have no success, unplug it and pop the battery out for at least 20 minutes to reset the cmos.
you might need to tweak the bios setup options afterwards.

goodluck and post back

I have tried every driver I can find even the ones on the Acer support page. I still get the response "camera not found" In fact this is a true statement because I
can't find where the camera is stored on my system. Any advice welcome. I never tried the camera until I changed to windows 8 so I am not sure if it ever worked.

Can I use higher volt ram in my motherboard?

Your help is appreciated!

A:Ram Volt Does it matter

You need to check QVL of compatible ram for your motherboard.
1.8v is the motherboard default ram voltage, check in bios to see if you have the option to change the ram voltage.
If you don't have the correct voltage for the ram you will run into booting problems

But what about CD-Rs?

Can I go down four or five generations and still maintain the same sound quality. I know there are rumours that digital CD-Rs make exact copies, but I thought I'd ask the tech gang to make sure.

Dear Carrie:

Sorry to tell you, but it seems like you must find a fresh new XP cd in order to reinstall it, as well as your previously installed software (provided you had backed up things before the disaster).

If you at least were able to start XP and some other kind of errors were jumping out, maybe something could be done. But don't guide by my opinion only. Here at the forums are some pretty cool geniuses which could help you better than me.

Sorry for not being of much more help

I don't know your MB but if you got a set of 32 bit drivers as well as the 64 bit drivers, give the 32 bit drivers a spin. I think I read that someone found that effective .

Compaq CQ50-103nr Laptop running Windows Vista Home Premium.

You can see the Wireless User Guide here. My understanding is that the wireless light is orange when the wireless adapter is disabled and blue when enabled. If I press the wireless button, it turns blue for about a half second and back to orange.

I have loaded the drivers furnished by Compaq and I have no exclamation points in Device Manager.

My guess is the wireless adapter is kaput; but, before I spend any money, I would like to know what others here might know about this that I might not.

The power button for this laptop is at center top of the keyboard and the wireless button is just a half-inch to the right of it. It has the wireless symbol on it, lit in orange and it finds no network although I do have a working wireless router on which another laptop here is currently working.
 

A:Wireless LAN indicates it's off no matter what

Unfortunately, a non-working wireless adapter and a wireless light which is permanently amber is a widespread fault with HP & Compaq laptops (Google Search brings up loads of forum posts to prove how widespread it is). My grandaughter's packed up on her Compaq last year and it defied all attempts by me to fix it so I bought her a plug-in USB wireless adapter which solved the problem.

In my daughter's case, the built-in wireless adapter wasn't even listed in Device Manager, which means it isn't even being detected, which usually means the device has failed. Your Device Manager is probably not listing it either (hence no errors are shown).

If the laptop is still under warranty, HP will repair it free of charge (or at least that is what I read on the various forums last year).

A:Constant lag no matter what, is there no way out?

I'm at my wits end - it didn't take long!

Fixing up an old Intel 845EPT2 for a neighbor. I did a Reinstall of XP, installed all Drivers straight off the Intel Website, and no matter what, there's no Audio.

"No Device Installed" even though the Soundmax appears in System / Devices.

I have double checked Audio is enabled in the BIOS.

I even threw in an old Soundblaster Live!, turned off Audio in the BIOS, installed Drivers and it did the same thing.

I'm running an SFC / SCANNOW .

The weird thing is that it had Audio before {along with a million viruses, which is why I re-installed}

Any ideas, except a litre of Petrol and a Lighter?
 

A:Can't get Audio no matter what

uninstall all your drivers in device manager, go to your C drive and program files, make sure all files related to the drivers, software is deleted, also, do a add remove any software that may use those same sound drivers that you previously uninstalled. turn off machine, take your card out, if you're using onboard, disable in bios, start up, let windows load, if its a sound card installed in a pci slot a "new hardware" window should pop up, install drivers through that dialog box. If its an onboard sound device just simple restart after windows has started up and recognized no sound devices or drivers installed, go back to bios, enable sound, start up, reinstall drivers and software....I hope this helps as I just had this problem last night and had to figure out how to fix it, GL

Here is the problem I just recently was given a laptop. I was told that it was hooked up to a tv with HDMI but, there was sound on the laptop. I am running Windows 7 Premium HP Pavilion g7-1318dx Notebook PC
Serial Number: 6CF2085XDS Product Number: A7A43UAR . I have no sound with just notebook speakers. I have went to the HP driver download site and tried to download the audio drivers. I receive a warning " The Hardware detected is not supported by this IDT software package. Install will now abort." There are 3 Audio downloads on the Hp website none work. The speaker Icon down by the clock with a red X on it when you do a mouse roll over it says no speakers or headphones are plugged in. I have tried headphones still no sound. I have also tried to the windows trouble shooter and it says it detects no problems. Play back devices is only showing Digital Audio (HDMI) High definition Audio device not plugged in. Recording says there are no audio devises are installed in. I have tried everything any help would be appreciated.
 

A:No sound no matter what

I think that you need an extra lead because HDMI gives picture only. The lead I have has a mini stereo jackplug at one end which goes into the computer's headphones socket and two phono plugs (white and yellow) at the other to plug into the TV's audio input at the back. You should then be able to work out how to set up the sound via Control Panel.

i used to have dual boot windows vista and ubuntu and i got rid of ubuntu and the grub boot loader (by using vista recovery cd and using the command bootrec.exe /FixMbr) which i replaced with the vista boot loader from the recovery cd i made but for some reason i dont have BIOS anymore. at all. and when i press f9 to load my recovery partition it gives me the error
PXE E61 media test failure, check cable
PXE M0F exiting pxe ROM

then it loads windows vista and i cannot reformat my computer because of this. i really need to get this done as soon as possible i cannot express how grateful i would be to whoever can help me solve this problem. thankyou.
 

A:URGENT matter.

Vista and the boot-loader have nothing to do with BIOS.

Try a PS/2 keyboard if you are using USB.

You might try resetting CMOS. The machine is trying to boot from the network, possibly because it can't find any OS.

Having seen the required specs for half life 2, I've decided to upgrade my current ram and purchase an AMD 2500 processor - my current system is a s follows, AMD 1700, 512 DDR ram (generic), softmodded radeon 9500 128 np, W2000k and a 40 gig HD, not top notch kit but enough to play any current game at optimal configuration.
My question is this, my current 2100, 266mhz generic ddr ram works pretty much adequatly and has given me no cause for complaint but on checking prices, find that higher specc'd ram is'nt as expensive as I'd assumed - would purchasing 333mhz or 400mhz ram offer significant increase in performance or are these specs only relevant to hard core modders?

But my question is will the instalation work or like this or do i need to remove all the partitions and start again.

Hope someone can advise me.

Ran a debug for you, and I get the following:

I think this looks like a driver issue. If you know how to run the driver verifier function, try that. If you've never run it before, be careful... you can get stuck in a BSOD/reboot loop. Here is a tutorial for running driver verifier.

If the driver verifier function makes you too nervous, you could manually search for updated drivers for all of your hardware by going to the manufacturers' websites, one by one, and getting the latest drivers.

Are you using the WMM that comes with Vista or is this the Windows Live Essentials WMM? If not the latter, I think you are eligible for it with Vista and you might try that version.

In the first place i thought it was somethign wrong with a softaware...so i started to unistall all programs i have one by one to see the performance...nothing happend.
I have even changed RAM..nothing happend.SO finally thought that maybe it was the HDD.

So i bought a new one (Maxtor 40GB) and now when i am trying to install windows 2000 it freezes again in the installation part (you know the blue screen)!!!
What else can be wrong???

thanks for any help.

Hi. I posted a long rambling thing a little while ago because I'm looking at a new laptop. Let me cut out all that stuff and get to one point I'm really curious about -- does 64 bits matter?

I know some people say this is just around the corner, but is it a revolution or just hype?

Obviously I am also curious whether there is a point in waiting to buy a new computer until Intel goes 64 bit -- but the computer I have now is ancient and can't run anything anymore, so I probably don't have that luxury.

Still, I wonder what 64 bits actually means. It's my feeling that 32 bits is doing a pretty decent job and going from 8 --> 16 and 16 --> 32 were the real revolutions. But maybe someone has a different take.

Hi I have matter no loud CPU what Fan a custom computer I built and I m having real problems with how loud it had gotten Recently my friend gave me his old processor P GHz with HT and its running CPU Fan loud no matter what on my new mother board ASUS P CPU Fan loud no matter what NSLI and it has been running so loud that it keeps me up I have to open my window to let in degree air to slow the fan down There was one fan already in the case that was sucking air out on the panel side and i recently purchased another one to put in the back near the cpu to blow air in and it made about Zero difference and its putting a good amount of air in My heat sink is just a intel that came with the CPU The fan speeds run as follows at rpm when the CPU is C This is relatively quiet but still can easily tell that the computer is running but this is with the window open haha once i close the window the temp is still at C but it will run at rmp- rmp which is enough to wake me up note these temps are mostly unaffected by cpu usage when i run transcode for my converts an avi file into wmv as fast possible to play through media center If the window is open no sound and the cpu is under rather a heavy load but in the same respect if the window is closed and I m not even using my computer its like a highway in my room The Computer itself isn t in a confined area either it is out in the open in a place where air circulates easily So my though that was maybe i need to mess with the settings in BIOS since i have never really touched them in new computer Any suggestions on what to do whether it is through the BIOS or just how I placed the fans in the case thankyou nbsp

A:CPU Fan loud no matter what

You may be able to change the thresholds for temperature in the bios on whether it kicks the fan into high speed or not.

I'd also suggest taking that fan you put in the back of the case and reverse it so it blows air out, thats traditionally how its done, and makes more sense with the air dynamics inside a case. Fans on the side panels or the front typically blow air into the case, so I'd suggest doing that as well.

You can pull the heatsink off the processor (with the comp shut down of course) and clean it off with 99% Isopropyl alcohol and reapply some thermal paste. Artic Silver seems to be the consensus for doing that, but you can also get away with the thermal paste Radio Shack sells if you must.

A final thing you could do is get an aftermarket heatsink and fan that will run quieter and cool better.

in the beginning i had problems with installing msi packages which was later fixed by following instructions install try? why matter certain what cant msi i packages no i on websites and forums to either tweak the registry or use group policy editor so why cant i install certain msi packages no matter what i try? that fixed the issue but however there are certain msi packages that still fail to install with the same error that administrator has set poilicies tor prevent installtion or local policy restriction has forbidden this install why cant i install certain msi packages no matter what i try? i have a feeling that it wont be just some but in the future i think there will be many more msi packages that fail although most of them install i want a fix so that every msi package can get installed ill explain my exact problems where msi packages failed first when i completed installing gta towards the end of the installation i get an error message that system administrator has set policies to prevent this installation then i doubted the game would work however it worked so at the end of installation there must have been some small component to install which may have been an msi package that failed this was the same time where other msi packages failed for me but was later fixed with the group policy tweak but even after those problems were fixed when i tried installing gta again the same error popped up in the end meaning that the msi issue was not percent solved second scenario was i was updating my windows home premium that time all the updates succeeded but a few failed normally this would be fixed by installing the updates that were already downloaded then restartng the pc and again trying the same updates that time it worked but again out fof the last updates succeeded and failed so i tried the same method of installing the remaining then rebooting and trying the last update again but it still failed i rebooted a few times still no use the update thatr failed was a security update for dotnetfix which was KB so i googled the issue to find that a few other people were having the same problem that was with this same KB they said that it failed to install for them too then i tried downloading and installing the hotfix of KB from the link they provided in the forum and manually installing yet again it failed and ended with quot installation did not succeed quot then i noticed below that it was written quot this installation is forbidden by system policy quot then i had a feeling that it had something to do with msi packages however the hotfix that i downloaded was exe format but there could be msi contents within exe itself and finally my thinking was right i clicked on the log file and it showed me the folowing Number of applicable items MSI c d c fe d vc red msi Installation failed Msi Log Microsoft Visual C x Redistributable Setup -MSI vc red msi txt Final Result Installation failed with error code x quot This installation is forbidden by system policy Contact your system administrator quot Elapsed time so again it was an msi file that failed so please help me get a solution for a percent restriction free msi installation method remember before telling me the answers i have already tried all suggested methods on the forums my windows install is fresh just hours ago done all updates no viruses im an advanced user so everything with my pc is absolutely fine to my knowledge an also remember that many other people have the similar problem which is still not yet solved

I was not alone when Microsoft .NET Framework 4, bundled in a Windows Update this week, refused to install. It may be common knowledge by now, but the issue can be resolved by downloading the program from Microsoft Download Center: Search Results.

But does it matter? I don't fully understand what the .NET Framework programs do but have always accepted the advice to retain them all on my computer, not just the latest version. However, when installing Version 4, I realised that none of the earlier versions is on my laptop (at least, none appear alongside Version 4 in the Programs and Features list). I've apparently, then, been using my laptop for 7 months (internet, basic officework, media storage, nothing grand) without the help of .NET Framework and with no problems.

So do I really need it?

A:Installing .NET Framework 4 (But Does It Matter?)

Nope.

I was getting along with 3.5 (default of W7) just fine for months (almost a year actually) with no problems.

It basically comes down to:
Install it if you want, or wait until you need it.

We knew it would happen sooner or later, but maybe all hope isnt lost.I would think that because mozilla is open source the mozilla foundation will keep releasing fixes in new versions.But this sucks.

A:We knew it was only a matter of time.

As a prediction, I am not sure how good it is, since malware will continue to target the dominant browser, IE. I also note that Mozilla seems much more able and willing to issue patches in a timely manner than has been IE hitherto.

Download Spybot http://www.sherrylynn.us/privacypolicy.htm

Make sure to follow the instructions for updates prior to running the scan.

Click on "Search For updates" After the search has completed, the available Updates will be listed. Choose which Updates you would like to Download. Click "Download updates." The Updates will self install. The screen will change and the program will come back and be ready to use.

Sometimes the default Download Location will produce an Error. If that happens, look in the right panel. There you will find a small arrow next to the name of the current Download site. Click on it for a list of alternate sites. One of those should be able to retrieve the files you have selected.

Scan, click on fix problems then reboot.

Next:

Download AdAware http://www.lavasoftusa.com/support/download/

Before you scan with AdAware, check for updates of the reference file by clicking

on "Check for updates now", connect.

Click on Start, Use custom scanning options, Customize.

Make sure the following settings are made and on -------"ON=GREEN"

"Scan within archives"
"Scan active processes"
"Scan registry"
"Deep scan registry"
"Scan my IE Favorites for banned URL"
"Scan my host-file"

Click on Tweak,
Select scanning engine and click on "Unload recognized processes during scanning"
Select cleaning engine and click on "Automatically try to unregister objects prior to deletion" and "Let windows remove files in use at next reboot"

Then click "proceed" to save your settings.

Click on Next

Run the scan and fix everything.

Hey everyone. About 3 days ago my Facebook stopped loading. I know this is a dumb reason to write on here but it's the only way I have to talk to some of my family. I have tried getting it to load on IE 9, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox. It's windows 7 - 64 bit. I have messed with everything.. the firewall, cleared everything.. It'll bring up the login page and then when I log in it only brings up the blue bar at the top. It won't let me click on anything. All other websites are working fine. Please help!!!

A:Facebook will not load no matter what I do!!

I just wrote up something similar to your problem (except the user could not access Google/Bing instead of Facebook). I would check that out and see if that fixes the problem and of course would just contact the ISP if you don't know how to do any of the suggested solutions or none of them work.

Google not working, please help!

Best of luck!
