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 have bought JBL Speaker FLIP Model FHP 2 on 14th July 2014 but it worked for only 2 to 2.5 months thereafter not working anymore.
I have taken to SPAR Artee Industrial on 29/09/14 but they are not providing free replacement not they are able to repairs as Charging PIN has spoiled. THe part is not available locally. The JBP Speaker are not working at all now.

Kindly suggest, for the Customer Care Complaints I am unable to find the Customer Care/ Replacement Customer Care / Service Center / Top Management Contact numbers for getting help for repairs / replacement.

Hi been awhile since I last posted. In the house we have a desktop and 2 laptops on the go in the house.The desktop is wired internet while the laptops are run on wifi.This worked fine until my isp UPC upgraded my internet speed from 50mb to 120mb.. The desktop and one of the laptops still works fine but the acus laptop has web access for between 20 mins to 45mins before the wifi drops off and becomes limited access. The wifi needs to be renabled to regain access to the wifi which lasts another small while until it gets limited access again.

The laptop specs are:
Acus K53e
Windows 7 home premium 64bit
intel Centrino N100 wifi adapter
Ram 6gig

At the moment its running for 30 mins then wifi cuts off for a few seconds before starting up again.

I sent my laptop in to be serviced under warranty because the keyboard would not work. was denied service because of water damage but now my screen doesn't work, can someone help
 

A:My screen won't turn on after service was denied on warranty due to water damage

Water can destroy a laptop or any other electronic device. Chances are that the water sat underneath the keyboard and flowed onto the motherboard where it dried causing corrosion and damaging the motherboard permanently. You could take the laptop to a repair shop and they could give you a repair estimate. Of course, you will have to pay for this repair. If a liquid is spilled on a laptop in the future, immediately open it and turn it upside down. This allows the liquid not to hit and pool on the motherboard, or in a keyboard

A few years back I purchased - GB Kingston Value Ram sticks Kingston ValueRAM GB x GB -Pin DDR SDRAM DDR PC Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model KVR D N K G I used it on an Intel X board that warranty, compatibility... Memory was glitchy finall gave up and swapped it on to an MSI X- board with a Q processor Memory warranty, compatibility... that was glitchy so I scrapped the Memory warranty, compatibility... whole thing and did an I- build Decided to revisit the Q and the Kingston Ram and do a Home Theater build using an Intel DG RK The quot tested ram quot spec for that board calls for volt non ECC ram However when I go Memory warranty, compatibility... on the Kingston website and plug in that motherboard it specifies the ram If I plug in the - GB sticks of that I use in the I- build everything works fine But when I plug in the ram of the GB sticks are accepted by the motherboard and two are rejected with the -beep code When I was running this ram on the previous motherboards they were always glitchy beep codes at startup lock-ups I must have run Memtest times and always showed no errors Does anyone have any suggestions as to where I should look for the problem Ram always says quot limited lifetime warranty quot but when I have run Memtest in the past it shows no problems Does anyone have any suggestions about warranty replacement I think that will be a waste of time nbsp

A:Memory warranty, compatibility...

Compare the votages and timings in BIOS against the designed specs of the RAM. Do they match?

What is this, and can I change it - if so, how?

I would suggest trying to change the underscore to a "G" as to make it a JPG, really not sure why your camera is saving files in that kind of and extension. Make a backup of the original file before you change the extension.

The BT Business Hub is providing WiFi to a part of the hotel where I am working. I have bought 2 Netgear RangeMax wiireless routers with a view to extending the range via CAT5 cabling to other parts of the hotel.
My problem is that I don't know what to configure to make it happen.
The IP address of the BT hub is 192.168.1.254 subnet mask 255.255.255.0
default gateway for the server computer, which is attached to the BT hub is 192.168.1.254
I can log on wirelessly to the RangeMax and make the IP address, subnet mask and default gateway anything I want.
Can anyone tell me what I have to configure a) on the RangeMax and b) on the BT Business hub to make a guest in the far reaches of the hotel only log on to the wireless network that I decide (the one which doesn't give access to the hotel network drives!)

Thanks in advance
 

A:BT Business Hub - extension to Netgear Rangemax

I take it you have TWO access points and want only one to be used publicly.

On the public AP, set an easy to recognize SSID and no encryption.

On the private, set a different SSID, add encryption and consider not broadcasting
the SSID.

After years of building PCs for friends and family I purchased a Dell Vostro 410 for work as it was a good deal.

Anyway as things happen, the jack pin from the speaker system broke off leaving the end in the pc.

Try as I might I could not pull it out and ended up drilling out really carefully. Unfortunately now cannot use the onboard sound and have installed a pci sound card.

From what I can see, there is no evidence of my abuse and I have paid for 4yr warranty, should I come clean and get a new mobo or just keep quiet?

Have you tried disabling C1E, or does your BIOS even support that? Make sure you've unlinked the FSB and RAM speeds, that would cause some problems for sure. On my board, I have my Q6600 at a solid 3Ghz on 1.25 vcore, so don't push the volts up too far. You could try dropping the multiplier and pushing the FSB speed up.

I currently own three Computers, all of which are differant ages but are all Windows XP's. One is slow, one is kind of fast, and the other doesn't work. The one that doesn't work is because the monitor is dead. Me and my Grandma made sure all of the plug-ins were in the proper places, and the Monitor just doesn't turn on! The computer starts up and I can see the main computer light turn on, it's running just fine. There is the start-up sound, and you can hear noise from it. But you can't see anything out of it. The monitor light doesn't even turn on! Does anybody have a solution to this?

Spent a good while "chatting" w/ NewEgg & Seagate - India about OEM vs "Retail" hard drives.

NewEgg clearly states on their site that many "OEM" Seagate internal drives drives have 5 yr parts & labor "Manufacturer's Warranty" (on the specific HDD specs page).

Seagate - India, tells me that drives designated as OEM will NOT have any warranty (or support) honored by Seagate to the end user.

For those w/ experience in this, what's the actual truth about OEM drives & warranties, from NewEgg or any other E-tailer?
 

A:Warranty difference OEM hard drive vs "Retail"

OEM you have to go by what the Manufacturer of company says as they're the one going to help you out. So OEM drives if you buy them from a vendor at a computer show they'll replacement for free. The vendor not the Manufacturer company. HDDs I just buy them wholesale and still get the protection from the manufacture. Unless NewEgg is going to protect after 5 years down the line, but you'll have to get that in writting..

Retail - Price is higher unless you get it on clearance then it would be the same price of OEM but you get protection

OEM - Price is cheaper low overhead
OEM - no hardware brackets
OEM - no retail box
OEM - no manual
OEM - no warranty (unless you a PC repair shop of PC vendor since you would buy in blunk)

A:Power extension cable issue

might be the monitor

No replies :/
Ok... Actually I've had no problem since I changed the settings in BIOS
and it's very weird. I've still bought a new power supplie, a Hiper 580W.
I'll install it later I hope it's good ...and quiet enough. The first step in
the upgrade process :dead:

Why I couldn't start my comp and why it said the power extension
cable wasn't connected... Here's what I think, even I'm not a pro.
Sometimes I switched off my old Nokia monitor while the comp was
working a long time during defrag, virus scan and more, because I
thought it will decrease the lifetime and because the screensaver
didn't always work as it should. I think something happend to the
BIOS because the monitor wasn't on... ​

I left my computer on over night and when i came back and tried to use it, the computer wouldn't respond. My first thought was to just move the mouse and bring it back but nothing happened. I turned it off by pushing the power button and restart the computer but nothing happened when i turned it back on!! No splash screen no BIOS or POST beeps.

I tried unplugging the Hard drive and powering it up but i got no error beeps.
So i took the RAM out and powered up again and got the error beep i was looking for. SO...do you guys think its the RAM that went bad?

*i did try to switch the RAM to a different slot but i had the same problem not beeps, no POST. (the computer is relatively new; How could the RAM just die like that?)

My pc randomly reboots itself after a period of time. It usually happens when Im running about 3-4 IE browsers, AIM, and Outlook Express for a while. i thought it was my overclocked CPU that was the problem, so i disabled over heat turn-off in the BIOS. Could there be errors in my registry?

Athlon 2500+ XP overclocked to 3400+ (42 C at rest)
Abit NF7-S2 Motherboard
 

A:PC Reboots itself after being on for a period of time

That processor is seriously overclocked.

Overclocking reduces the lifespan of the hard ware and also overclocks the RAM and PCI bus, so have you tried not overclocking the system?

There is no point in turning off the overheating monitor in the BIOS if the processor isn't overheating, which it doesn't appear to be doing if its temperature is only 42 degrees.

He ask me if there is a program out there that can join these three, I don't know but I hope techspot can help me out on this.
Many thanks

Try winRAR or mastersplitter.
Both should be free and easily attainable.

Gaming LCD's

I am wondering what the best lcd monitor for gaming is. I am hooking this up to dual 7800 gt's and want to take advantage of this by buying a premium monitor. I know that for gaming lower response time is better and that native resolution should be relatively high, any help would be appreciated. By the way, im looking to spend around $500.
 

A:The BEST gaming lcd...period

For $500 you could easily buy any high-end 17" LCD. And for 19", $500 will get you a pretty good one, if not a great one. LCD prices are changing so rapidly.

But if you get a 19", make sure it suits some basic things first, like the type of connection. Is it DVI? Does it match your vid card outputs? Getting a digital signal is the first thing to look for. Then make sure it handles your favorite resolution. For 19" this would be like 1280x1024 or even 1600x1200.
After this, the best thing to do is find a site that runs comparisons on LCDs. Select the 3 to 5 or so that you like best and compare side to side. You'll see who has quicker response times, brighter picture, more features etc...
PCWorld has such comparrisons, check tomshardware.com, then just do some googling.

Couldn't say what is the "BEST..period". Some people would say only CRTs can be the best.

A:Laptop freezes after a short period of time

That model has been out for about three years? How long have you had your Inspiron 6400?

We need to know the configuration, including hard drive size, brand, free space, as well as memory installed.

It could be that the CPU cooling is too full of dust, hair, fiber, etc. to cool adequately... or that the hard drive is failing, or that you have inadequate memory. But it could simply be an infestation that needs to be cleaned out.

Have you tried re-enabling Windows Installer? Have you attempted to use MalwareBytes, SuperAntispyware, ComboFix, Windows Defender, Spy Sweeper, Spyware Doctor, or other top-flite spyware detectors and removers?

Should you want to uninstall the ActiveX plugin, the process is simple - only four files need to be manually deleted from the Firefox program folder.
Close all instances of Firefox
Go to the Firefox program folder (the location you installed Firefox to). The default location in Windows is 'C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\'
Go into the plugins folder and delete the file 'npmozax.dll'
Go back to the Firefox program folder, and then go into the components folder, and delete the files 'nsIMozAxPlugin.xpt' & 'nsAxSecurityPolicy.js'.
Go back to the Firefox program folder, and then go into the defaults\pref folder, and delete the file 'activex.js'.

Any help ??

My reccomendation would be to emailing the PowerQuest support staff and asking them what it is. It may be an error that they have to fix, or it could open with a program they made.

Came across an interresting issue today.

You know how normally when you type a file name such as "regedit" it will open "regedit.exe".
Or "cmd" opens "cmd.exe" or "notepad" opens "notepad.exe".

Well what do you suppose it means when you type a name but it adds ".com" instead? So if you click start-run and type "regedit", it tries to open "regedit.com" instead of EXE.
Note that you can type the full filename regedit.exe or whatever, and it opens fine, but the default extension turns to .COM somehow. Not sure what that means.

So how do you tell Windows to look for EXE instead of COM when typing a filename?
 

A:Default executable file extension?

If there are files with both .com and .exe, by default Windows will first try the .com version.
Some trojans and other ilk 'drop' a .com version for an existing .exe program, thus effectively stopping the .exe from functionning when called without extension.

.com programs are generally smaller as well, and could call up their big .exe brother, so it's a bit of hit and miss.
When in doubt, Google both versions.

To synchronize the contacts and messages with my Exchange Server, Windows 10 requires an increase of the work stations security, forcing a new Windows login
after a specified inactivity period.
Once the increased security is implemented users can only play with an inactivity period range of 1 to 5 minutes.

In my capacity of Administrator of the network, I would like to be able to increase the value of the inactivity value beyond 5 minutes for those stations that
are not exposed to public access, which requires that Microsoft communicate to me the name and address of the Register key which controls the inactivity period after which a new login is required.

I really need that Register key to resolve my problem!

Inside .acc file is a simple text, but the mighty Excel tries to open it like some kind of database. It is asking for accounts, sources, passwords etc. and finally it cannot open it at all. It can open this file if I change extension to something else like .txt or .xls. How can I turn off this useless function of Excel 2013? The Excel of 2003 just opens it without any question.

Hi gacuxz, welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

MS changed Office file extensions from version 2007. This website might it explain it for you.

Microsoft Office file extensions list

When you have opened the file in question, by the method you mention, have you tried saving it, using the Save As option, with a file extension listed in the Save As options list.

Hi All,

I am using Exchange Server 2007 and I am wondering what the default email retention period is for all folders? Will Exchange 2007 automatically delete messages after 'x' number of days/weeks/months/years? If it does delete automatically what is the default time period?

Kind Regards,

A:Slow boot period post welcome screen

Hello,
 
I am not sure what to tell you, but since you have already received help here, I can only tell you my story with system start-up time. I also have Vista OS, I have the same "problems" with long delays between the welcome screen and the desktop appearance. It's black screen for about 1 minute, and when I look at computer case, HDD light is off for that 60 seconds, and after that time, red light starts to blink and desktop shows. Maybe it's not a bug, it's a feature.

You are most likely dealing with a newer variant of TeslaCrypt which is for the most part the same as Alpha Crypt.Any files that are encrypted with TeslaCrypt will have the .ecc extension appended to the end of the filename.Any files that are encrypted with Alpha Crypt (TeslaCrypt renamed) will have the .ezz extension appended to the end of the filename.Any files that are encrypted with the newer unnamed variant will have the .exx, .xyz, .zzz or .aaa extension appended to the end of the filename.A repository of all current knowledge regarding TeslaCrypt and Alpha Crypt is provided by Grinler (aka Lawrence Abrams), in this topic: TeslaCrypt and Alpha Crypt Ransomware Information Guide and FAQInformation about and support for decrypting files affected by Alpha Crypt & TeslaCrypt ransomware can be found in this topic:TeslaDecoder released to decrypt .EXX, .EZZ, .ECC files encrypted by TeslaCryptThere are ongoing discussions in these topic:Alpha Crypt (TeslaCrypt renamed) Ransomware Support & DiscussionTeslaCrypt Ransomware Support & DiscussionNew TeslaCrypt version that uses the .EXX extensionRather than have everyone start individual topics, it would be best (and more manageable for staff) if you posted any questions, comments or requests for assistance in one of those topic discussions.

Since I can't find anything anywhere on this, hopefully I'm in the correct topic (I'm starting the assumption that this was caused with a virus).
 
A friend contacted me and said 'all' his files now have the extension .iklbunn.  For instance, he gave the this as an example:  Sallycopy.xls.iklbunn.  When he said 'all,' I wasn't certain if he meant just documents and spread sheets or literally all files (my guess it's just documents and spreadsheets).
 I checked all the major search engines and any antivirus software manufacturer I could think of (among them, Norton, McAfee, Kaspersky, BitDefender, etc) and drew a blank with every search.
 I'd appreciate some input.  Thanks.

A:Unknown File Extension

Hi there,It looks like your friend is infected with CTB-Locker crypto ransomware. Please see below for more information.The newest variants of CTB-Locker typically encrypt all data files and rename them as a file with a 6-7 length extension with random characters. The newer variants also do not always leave a ransom note if the malware fails to change the background, like it generally does. Compounding matters, the newer CTB-Locker infection has been seen in combination with KEYHolder, TorrentLocker (fake Cryptolocker) or CryptoWall ransomware. Unfortunately, there is still no known method of decrypting your files without paying the ransom and with dual infections, that means paying both ransoms.A repository of all current knowledge regarding this infection is provided by Grinler (aka Lawrence Abrams), in this tutorial: CTB Locker and Critroni Ransomware Information Guide and FAQThere is also an ongoing discussion in this topic: CTB Locker or DecryptAllFiles.txt Encrypting Ransomware Support & Discussion.To avoid confusion I have asked a Moderator to close this topic.Good luck.

Hi, does anyone know of a way to do this?  Upon looking through Opera's current extensions that prevent redirects, the only one I can see is called NoDetour.  I've been using it for a few days, but I just did a couple tests to load pages, and then monitored the little flashing web sites lists that come up in the lower left while the page is loading.  On bleepingcomputer for example, if I load it, I see a few different facebook url's coming up, a few different google urls, youtube urls, ytmg urls (also youtube?) or whatever it's called.  So there are currently a lot of undesirable hops in the mix to destroy.  This is very noticeable in terms of unecesarily slowing browser speed.  

A:Opera extension - prevents redirects

Except that one, Opera doesn't have any other add-ons to stop redirects; however there are extensions available in Chrome's web store which can work.
 
To be able to install extensions from Chrome, Download Chrome Extension has to be installed first in Opera.

Hi everyone,
 
I am now using radiorage that is an extension integrated into Google Chrome to listen to the online radio. And it is in good working. I have managed to listen to some English radio stations. They work well and there is nothing to say about them. I am a Vietnamese so I want to hear some foreign radio stations speaking in Vietnamese such as VOA Vietnamese. This station requires me to download a stream to listen. Clicking the "download this stream to listen" link, I have downloaded a file named "live-vietnamese-a", its type is Windows Media Audio/Video playlist and its size is only 1KB.
 
And my question is how to make the player in the VOA Vietnamese radio station work using this stream file.
Please help me solve this problem!
Thanks in advance!

I installed 10 on three machines and one has a mind of it's own when it comes to sleeping.  No matter how I set the power settings or screen savers if I get up and walk away from the machine it has gone into sleep mode when I come back.    In some respects it could be a useful thing, but since I'm not choosing for this to happen, it's a problem.

A:Windows 10 PC Going To Sleep After Short Period Of Inactivity

I installed 10 on three machines and one has a mind of it's own when it comes to sleeping.  No matter how I set the power settings or screen savers if I get up and walk away from the machine it has gone into sleep mode when I come back.    In some respects it could be a useful thing, but since I'm not choosing for this to happen, it's a problem.
I've discovered this issue predates Windows 10 and some online posters noticed something I have been able to verify in my situation.  It you restart, boot up, or wake from sleep with the power button the system doesn't go to sleep after a brief period of idling.  If you wake it from sleep with keyboard or mouse it does go to sleep.  I think better stated would be, it returns to sleep.  This discovery explains why at times I have thought the issue had somehow been resolved. Using the power button to wake up a system is an OK work around, but not ideal.

Recently copied some files (photos and videos) from phone (Android) to laptop (win7) to USB HD (WD passport) to desktop (Win7).
 
All the files have appropriate sizes, but attempting to open any of them gives a message that they are corrupted.  They all have a string appended to their extensions of space, vertically centered dot, space.
 
Removing the extra characters from the extensions does not fix the problem.  Does anyone know of a cause, or more importantly, fix for the situation?

Hello FriendsMy computer recently got a strange virusChange the extension of all files (Word, Excel, Photoshop, etc.) File extensions such as:10.93.DOCX.kbuibxdamar.XLSX.kbuibxdkhorasan.XLSM.kbuibxd Note: Only files with uppercase extensions Please help me because I have lost important files (email address deleted) Even after changing the file extension, the file is corrupted and can not be opened

A:virus has changed the file extension.

You also posted your issue today here https://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?/topic/164658-the-virus-has-changed-the-file-extension/You should only seek malware removal help at one forum.We ask that you select one forum from those where you sought help and ask the others to close your topics.Although we understand you wish your problems to be addressed as soon as possible, there are reasons why multi-posting causes problems.By Multi Posting you are utilizing the time of two (or more) trained helpers. Helpers take a long time to train. They need a great deal of expertise and knowledge to be able to safely remove Malware from your computer and because of this are in short supply. We wish to use them to help the maximum number of people, and if they are researching the log of someone who is already being helped, then their time and effort is going to waste.Understandably this causes a certain amount of bad feeling and frustrationFrom the helper who has needlessly spent time researching your log and compiling and posting instructions.From others who have to wait longer for their problems to be addressed.Advice from two separate helpers can cause problems.A helper at one place has no idea what a helper somewhere else is doing. Different helpers may use different methods to combat your infection. While each one is safe to use, problems can arise if you follow the advice of both together. Some of the tools used are very powerful and have to be used in a specific way and in some cases do not combine well with others. By using advice from two different sources it is possible that tools may be used that do not combine well and you may severely damage your computer, even rendering it inoperable in some circumstances. By following BOTH sets of instructions, the clean up process could be delayed.Please let us know WHERE you want to continue to receive help from. If elsewhere this topic will be closed.

Hi all,
 
I've been having an issue with an extension in Chrome that causes all kinds of javascript pop-ups. I removed it from chrome (I think -- removed all but Lastpass, Google Docs, Sheets and Slides) and ran malwarebytes which found nothing, ran Hitman 3 which found mostly standard tracking cookies, and then ran AdwCleaner which found the extension issue. Unfortunately, AdwCleaner doesn't seem to be able to remove it because it continues to find the same file each time I scan and remove and restart. 
 
The extension listed is lbfehkoinhhcknnbdgnnmjhiladcgbol which according to this website, is an Evernote extension clone. All of the details described in the site are accurate to the problems I've been having. Just removing the extension (which I did long ago), did not fix the problem of course.
 
Any thoughts for getting rid of this?

Hey there,
 
My docx files on my jump drive have an (echkmwl) extension. It's gibberish code when I open my word docs in Word or Wordpad. Instead of a document that's supposed to be 7 pages, it's 365 pages. Google search returns zero. Is this a virus?
 
If anyone could help, It would be greatly appreciated.

A:DOCX.echkmwl extension. Is this a virus?

Hello there,The newest variants of CTB-Locker typically encrypt all data files and rename them as a file with a 6-7 length extension with random characters. The newer variants also do not always leave a ransom note if the malware fails to change the background, like it generally does. Compounding matters, the newer CTB-Locker infection has been seen in combination with KEYHolder, TorrentLocker (fake Cryptolocker) or CryptoWall ransomware. Unfortunately, there is still no known method of decrypting your files without paying the ransom and with dual infections, that means paying both ransoms.A repository of all current knowledge regarding this infection is provided by Grinler (aka Lawrence Abrams), in this tutorial: CTB Locker and Critroni Ransomware Information Guide and FAQThere is also an ongoing discussion in this topic: CTB Locker or DecryptAllFiles.txt Encrypting Ransomware Support & Discussion. Rather than have everyone start individual topics, it would be best (and more manageable for staff) if you posted any questions, comments or requests for assistance in that topic discussion.To avoid confusion, I have asked a Moderator to close this topic.

I'm running Windows 7 and have a number of corrupted files.  They all have an additional extension of ".hybiyuj" and the original extension has been capitalized.  So a file previously named "test.pdf" is changed to "test.PDF.hybiyuj".  Unfortunately, the problem is not simply solved be removing the extension and opening the file as usual.  This has occurred for .pptx, .pst, .doc, .txt etc.  It did not happen to all files on the hard drive, only some folders.
 
Any help is greatly appreciated...

Even after renaming the file to its original name; the file is not opening and a message says the file type is not supported or corrupted.
The entire system is affected except the .pst outlook files.
Antimalware, spybot, eset, Win32/Dorkbot, Microsoft Safety Scanner, Malicious Software Removal Tool ---all tools used but still the files are unable to open.

Hello all.  Hope you can help.  I am trying to diagnose a problem with a friends computer.  All of her data files have been renamed to include the extension .uogltic, for example, dscn0269.jpg.uogltic.  It is very similar to ransomware, but there is no ransom note that we can find.  I have searched high and low for that file extension and come up empty.  I have run malware bytes and it fails to find anything.  Norton AV is also coming up empty.  One other symptom is that the file sizes are all VERY small - i.e. the jpgs are in the 100 to 200 KB range.
 
Thanks.  Any ideas are greatly appreciated.
