Varying wireless speed "wtf?!" issue

Q: Varying wireless speed "wtf?!" issue

Ok, so me and my counterparts have not been able to figure this out for about a month now. I bought a wireless usb adapter(b/g/n) for my rig and it was fine for a long time until about 2 months ago when I at somepoint started not getting full throughput.

My laptop(a/g/n) gets 50mbps and the adapter(b/g/n) now gets 30mbps. No, putting my rig next to the router doesn't help. The only way I can get full speed is via ethernet.

I've plugged in the bgn into my laptop and it still gets full.

Today, I've tried a friend's pci adapter and it only made a 1mbps difference.

any ideas?

Preferred Solution: Varying wireless speed "wtf?!" issue

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.)

A: Varying wireless speed "wtf?!" issue

Did the wireless adapter come with a software installation cd? If so, I would remove any wireless related drivers and the software, then reinstall the required drivers and software.

Could also try accessing the router from your laptop - there should be an option to restart/reset the modem. I've fixed speed related issued in a similar way.

I have a HSP56 MR modem. However, my connection speeds over a telephone line to my ISP rarely exceed 30,000. Should I indicate that the “Maximum Speed” under “Modem Configuration” is 57600 or 38,400 bps. This is confusing to me. Thanks. {redoak}

A couple of days ago my laptop was working fine and connected wirelessly to the Internet. Yesterday it wouldn't connect at all, only locally, without access to the Internet. Other devices in the household can connect though. After restarting the router and my laptop numerous times, I did a diagnose and repair, and the only solution was "security settings on this computer might be blocking the connection. the following policy might need to be adjusted to allow windows to connect: policy provider: windows firewall, filter name: query user. If the policy provider is firewall click for information....". So I tried messing with the firewall settings and nothing helped. My friend walked me through updating my driver and that didn't help. I'm just really confused and I want my laptop to work again. It is an hp pavilion dv5-1235dx and the OS is Vista.
 

A:Wireless connection reads as "local only" - says it could be a firewall issue?

Do you get internet access with an ethernet connection?

What firewall or security suite on the system?

Please attach a screen shot of the Networks page (don't collapse the Radar, Connection or Signal History) of the Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector. If you need help with that see TSG Posting a Screenshot. FWIW to take screen shots with Windows 7 or Vista I prefer to use the built-in Snipping Tool.

Also show ...

Open a (black) Command Prompt window:
Hold the Windows logo key and press r; in the Run box type cmd and click on OK.

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

[Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.

I setup WPA2 on my router and everyone can connect just fine.

But a new laptop with Windows 7 that used to be able to connect before I set WPA2 can no longer connect.

It takes a few minutes connecting saying "Identifying" then ends up saying it's connected with "Unidentified network". Can't ping the router, can't get to the internet etc.

I've tried rebooting both the laptop and router, network diagnostic (which just tells me to reboot the router) etc and nothing works.

Any ideas?

A:Oh no, not the Dell/XP "Disappearing Wireless" issue with Windows 7?

The Dell 1390 WLAN actually uses the broadcom wireless driver.
If you are using the one provided by dell, it's not even win 7 compatible. (it's dated sometime in '08)






Quote:
Dell Wireless 1510/1505/1500/1490/1470/1395/1390 all use Broadcom chipset and therefore the Broadcom driver is correct...


you should be able to get a broadcom driver updated to the first of this year.

Hi Folks,

I'm trying to do some customer service via long distance. Have some friends I set up a Linksys WRT160N wireless router for about two weeks ago. Just a desktop hardwired into the router and one wireless laptop using a secure connection. No big deal (or so it seems...)

These friends live about 3 hours away and they just realized that whenever the desktop logs on to the Internet, it bumps off the laptop. I've had them check the naming configurations for the laptop and the PC, but those seem to be fine.

I haven't worked with Linksys routers before so wondering if anyone else has had this problem and knows of a quick fix, or what to specifically look for before I remote in and start doing some tinkering.

Thanks in advance!

Hello Guys and Girls,

My wireless internet connections are currently set to a manually configured status, but this means I am having problems connecting to other wireless connections with free (ie unsecured) connections. I have tried going to properties and ticking the "Let Windows configure my wireless network settings", but I get a dialogue box coming up telling me that not all of my changes have been made.

Any ideas? Thank you in advance.

A:Solved: Changing wireless connection status from "Manually Configured" back to "Automatic"

Why don't we start with the make/model of the wireless router in use, as well as the wireless adapter or laptop brand. Also, what version and patch level of Windows do you use?

If you have XP-SP2, you can set the machine back to installation defaults using the following procedure.

TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Windows XP with SP2.

For these commands, Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt.

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

I purchased several Velocity netbooks for my classroom. In trying to connect to our wireless connection, we keep getting the message "Make sure the wireless switch on your computer is on." We cannot find any such "wireless switch" or where it may be....

Can anyone shed light on this? We're contacting Velocity but thought someone here might have insight right away...

Normally, the wireless capability is controlled either by a switch on the side of the laptop or a function key sequence. The user manual would probably be useful here. Of course, the exact model of the computers would help us too.

In Windows XP, fully updated, I have several folders full of mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

But all the figures in the "Duration" column appear to be in "hours" and "minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03", but what I want is "minutes" and "seconds".

Any thoughts as to how to change this?

I have an issue with the "Velocity Scale" under "Brush Tracking" in Painter X while using my Wacom Intuos 3. My Wacom Properties are set to the the default. All of the other scales in "Brush Tracking" are pretty dynamic all across the board but the "Velocity Scale" only moves between 0 and 3. I managed to get it up to 4 one time but I don't know how.

Hello everyone,
I've recently had a problem with my wireless connection. I've just changed my encryption type from WPA to WEP 64-bit on my router and at that time my PC stopped connecting to the internet via wireless connection.

So, originally I just changed the encryption back to WPA thinking that my adapter wasn't compatible with WEP but, this doesn't seem to be the case.
I am detecting multiple wireless networks around the area however, when trying to connect to one in particular it always comes back with the error message, "Wireless connectivity issue". So, I'm quite sure it's not an adapter issue but, am a bit stuck with what to do next.

I'm using a Belkin F5D9230-4 Wireless Router with 64-bit WEP encryption.

Thanks for your time.

No solution is immediately apparent to me, but am I correctly assuming were dealing with all NTFS drives here?
And are the four hard drives on the XP machine?
Did you name each share for each drive? Try mapping the shared drive(s) that you now can not with their drive letter followed by $.

For example...

//192.168.1.20/d$

...and see what happens.

Also, make sure each machine being shared from has a password set. You can not share with a blank (non-existant) pass.

People can access the IP as a site, but when it changes, the old one goes off.
It gets really frustrating! I've tried manually entering it on the gateway, but my gateway just stops working and I have no internet access.

I tried entering it manually on Windows, but it will disable my internet but allow me to access the site from the old IP.

So I have to keep it on "Obtain an IP address automatically"

Please help! I've been on this all day.


Your router gets its "outside" IP from the ISP so that you cant set manually. I assume the website is using that one, correct?

The inside IP's can be manually set but that will only work from the internal lan. Is that what you want to do?

My office just upgraded and I can no longer use Windows XP On this system I was able to add a separate taskbar to facilitate quick access to commonly-browsed folder locations on our vast network and another one expedited the launching of useful programs and lists Each task on each taskbar was represented with a big custom icon to save eye strain I had them installed in opposite vertical margins and they "Launchpads", to "Toolbars" for "Docks" (MSese "TASKBARS" NOT add Need were set on auto-hide to keep them out of the way when not being used Just move your mouse pointer to the left or right margin and BAM Sorry for the cliche but I really got used to the convenience of what I had set up and I just don't think I Need to add "TASKBARS" (MSese for "Launchpads", "Docks" NOT "Toolbars" can be as efficient without anything comparable Now there appears to be nothing comparable in the Windows GUI and it's making me sick with rage I see only the option to put a quot toolbar quot on an existing quot taskbar quot and no option to create any additional taskbars This cramps up your one-and-only taskbar plus the tiny toolbar access buttons require way too much precision for anything that's supposed to be quick When you've figured out how to bring up that ridiculous button the list that it yields is small enough to cause painful eyestrain - nothing efficient much less cool about this at all I have seen customization options in other OS GUIs that may have resolved some of these issues but I see none such in W I have tried every google search string that I can think of and found no answer that deals with anything other than adding that stupid toolbar to the only taskbar that Microsoft will allow you in W So If I'm wrong and have missed some options how do I access them Otherwise I'm hoping there are developers who know what I am talking about and have software to enable the creation of separate taskbars launchpads Can anybody help with either

Hi,

When our website users click on an html attachment embedded on a web-page in IE9, the download manager will not display the "Open" option. It will only display "Save" and "Cancel" which our users don't like, having to save the
html document in a folder to open it. Whereas, when downloading attachments like pdf, word etc. all three options are displayed. 

Is there any setting to tweak , which will display all the 3 options for HTML attachments as well?

A:IE9 download manager will not display "Open" option (only "Save" and "Cancel" is displayed) for downloading HTML documents.

Hi,
As you know, the Open-Save-Cancel dialog box helps you prevent your computer from affecting by virus while downloading. 
So I suggest you test to reset all zones to a lower level temporarily and then please attempt to download this html attachment again.

However, since you can normally download the other documents, I suspect there is some restriction in the website which you are trying to view. I recommend you to contact the administrator of that website if possible.
could you please send me the link of the website from where you are trying to download the html attachment?
Thanks!

I double-click and get "search" instead of "open"--only when I click a disk, like Hard Drive C: or Floppy A: or CD F: and so on.

It didn't used to do this, so I must've inadvertently changed some setting somewhere, but darned if I can find it now.

Any ideas?

Does anyone know if its possible to autofill the "from field" as a rule, when your in "another users /delegates" mailbox, so you dont have to add their address in the "from field"? (so it will autopopulate with their email address (and show "on behalf of")?
I hope this was clear.

thanks.
 

A:Solved: outlook 2007 "from field" 'on behalf of" issue

No ... its not possible if the user has more than one delegate (that has added them with the applicable rule). from that point on, they will have to choose which person they want to add to "sent" on behalf of field.

However, If they have just one (one only) user who has added them with that permission (to send on behalf of), it will auto-populate with that user.

So, It does not matter even if they are "in" a specific users mailbox (and expect the "on behalf of" to auto fill with that users name). If they have more than one delegate that has added them with that permission, they will still have to choose which user the message will sent "on behalf of"

i figured this out by trail and error etc

Hello,
If you go into task manger and then the networking tab, what does the 'link speed' mean?
Is that interent speed? Because if it is i can download a movie in 10 seconds??
I am just curious- here is a photo of my task manger and speedtest.net
Raggstar
 

A:Solved: Wireless "Link Speed'?

NO
Thats the speed of your internal network - the speed of the internet will be upto whatever deal you paid for -
Whats your download speed from your ISP ?
try this http://www.speedtest.net/
My taskmanager says 54Mbps - which is the max speed of my wireless G adapter in my Sony Laptop
Wireless G = 54Mbps
So you must be using a N router with a N adapter - is that correct ?
BUT
the speed of the wireless is NOT the speed of the internet
Even though I have a N router and my Sony with a G Adapter I'm running at 54Mbps - that only applies to the network speed - between PCs and NAS etc -

BUT my maximum internet speed is 2M download, because that all I pay for , and usually get just under that speed 1.9ish

Running XP on 2 computers. Have them connected by a router. I set the router IP to 192.168.3.1 Everything connects great! When I connect to a wireless network, it all connects, but doesn't work ("connection timed out" or "Page not found" errors. The wire connection shows an IP of 192.168.2.1. If I disable my Local Area Network, the internet connects perfectly. I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY I CAN USE MY LOCAL AREA NETWORK AND THE WIRELESS CONNECTION AT THE SAME TIME! Frustrating to the max! Any network specialists out there who can tell me how to fix this? Thanks!!!

You should know that x.x.2.1 is incorrect. For the router address shown, all devices that connect to it *must* be 192.168.3.x where x > 1 and < 255.

I would suspect that you have some static configuration data in the devices.

You want your router to offer DHCP in the range 2->32 (that's more than enough) and
you want all systems to use DHCP for the IP address and DNS settings.

Remove anything in the Alternative Configurations

Hi everyone!

Yesterday my HP laptop (Windows 7) started getting BSOD with various types of errors (mostly "STOP: 0x00000F4", "STOP: 0x0000007A", "c00021a" and one "missing %hs, c0000135"). Most of the time it restarts without any issues and works fine right after the BSOD and then an hour or two later I get a BSOD again.

I have tried restoring to Last Known Good Configuration, startup repair, hard disk check, virus scans and I also uninstalled any recently added programs I could think of and cleared up more than 50% of my hard disk space. None of these seem to have helped and I still get BSOD regularly.

I have attached the folder from the SF Diagnostic Tool and would appreciate any advice!
Thank you!

I am using Windows 7 on my laptop and I have question about when to use "Home", "Work" and "Public" profile.

If I am logging in without setting password, and I am logging in network with "Public" profile, then will any other user, who can see my computer, be able to enter my computer and check the contents on my computer ?

I am connecting to a network and there are 6 other users connected to this network. In the set network location window, if I select the netwoek as "Home", does it mean that other 6 users will not be able to see my computer on network and if I use "Public", then all other six users will be able to see my computer on network ?

You get this message when the port that it is connected to is not usb 2.0. example:

computer usb port is 2.0 and the device you are using (camera, etc) is usb 1.0

or

computer usb port is 1.0 and the device you are using (camera, etc) is usb 2.0

or

computer usb port is 2.0 and the device you are using (camera, etc) is usb 2.0 but your usb hub (if you are using one) is usb 1.0.

basically somewhere you have a usb device or plug that is not at the same speed. Alot of times computer companies will put usb 2.0 ports in the back of the computer and only 1.0 on the front of the computer.. i have seen that before..

A:Solved: School WIFI issues: A question of speed or "spread"

These are questions for the school's IT and it's also their responsibility to address, you should be taking your concerns to them. We cannot assist a user or employee with changing or altering what is generally a secured and controlled network and doing so could bring serious consequences to you and to us. I think this thread should be closed based on those grounds.

Okay first off let me say that this post has two separate issues but I post them together because I m not sure if they re related or not Problem Let me start off with a description of what s happened I purchased a new Dell laptop over the summer running Microsoft Windows Home Premium -bit SP and everything was fine But as I started to download some programs I realized that not all of them were listed in the Start Menu s quot All Programs quot folder for this example I chose to demonstrate it with CCleaner I have yet to pick up a pattern as to what programs make it into quot All Programs quot and what programs do not What s even weirder is what happens when I type into the Start Menu s Search Bar When I partially type up the name of a program that is not in quot All Programs quot there are "All Recent Programs" Issue Issue Menu Items and Start no results But when I type the name in its entirety as in the full quot CCleaner quot the program is found However when I try to open CCleaner from there I get an error saying it cannot find the program s exe And as you can see in the window C the program is definitely installed and works just fine when trying to open it Problem quot Recent "All Programs" Start Menu Issue and Recent Items Issue quot jump lists aren "All Programs" Start Menu Issue and Recent Items Issue t working either for some programs Microsoft Word for example I can right-click my pinned Windows Explorer and up will come a list of quot Recent quot folders I ve viewed With Word all I see listed is quot Microsoft Word quot and quot Unpin this program from the taskbar quot And yes when I open up Word the program itself does have items listed under quot Recent quot EDIT I just thought I d mention that I do NOT have CCleaner delete the files that store the quot Recent quot items or anything else from quot Windows Explorer quot for that matter --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Is there anyway I can just get all of explorer to have just a fresh start without having to wipe everything on my computer and start over from scratch Or do any of you have any ideas to help me out I apologize for the length of this post but I tried to make sure I was clear with what all is happening Thanks again Steve nbsp

hi,

OK, this is a weird one.

I wanted to move the "My Music", "My Pictures", "My Videos" folders to another HDD. I moved the "My Documents" Folder to this HDD without a problem but the others I accidentally set the whole HDD as the folder (if that makes sense). So now the music, videos and pictures folders are set to this HDD and dont have an actual folder to change the properties of. Therein lies my dilema.

If anyone can offer any advice on this curly issue it would be greatly appreciated.

You may want to reinstall the operating system.

Backupthe files that are importantto you before you reinstall.

The "New" installation will overwrite the current one

If you do not format your hard drive before the reinstall the installation should not harm your files (That's why I suggest backingup your files) and will speed up the installation process.

Hi Looking for insight advice re KB According to Infoworld it was quot Optional quot in May but I was not offered it then This KB3054476 "Important"/"Recommended"/"Optional" offered as week it was offered as quot Important quot and quot Recommended quot but only for one of my Win boxes I have read the MS KB article as well as THIS FORUM THREAD the latter of which includes a report of a BSOD due to this particular update However there isn't much out on the web about it And most of the discussion about it is overly technical for me And I am confused as to why it was previously offered as quot Optional quot but now is quot Important quot KB3054476 offered as "Important"/"Recommended"/"Optional" or quot Recommended quot I don't think I quot need quot it as I have no webcam on this box And I don't like KB3054476 offered as "Important"/"Recommended"/"Optional" to tempt fate by fixing things that are not broken So questions Is it safe to install Is it really necessary important Or would I be OK to hide it Thanks very much in advance

A:KB3054476 offered as "Important"/"Recommended"/"Optional"

The status of updates changes with circumstances.
If an update isn't relevant, it won't be offered at all.
If however it's relevant but the related software is not apparently in use, it may be 'optional' - and gravitate to 'Recommended' or 'Important' if the related software is in use.
It can also be promoted through the hierarchy by MS depending on feedback through WU and error-trapped feedback.


If you have (and use) a webcam, then it's probably best to install the update.

Better late than never (I guess):


How to upgrade your speed (if applicable):

Complete these easy steps to ensure you're receiving your faster speed:

1 Shut down your computer
2 Unplug your modem from the electrical outlet
3 Plug your modem back in
4 Unplug your router from the electrical outlet
5 Plug your router back in
6 Wait 30 seconds and turn your computer back on
To ensure your modem is a DOCSIS 3.0 modem and can take advantage of this speed increase, please click here:

A:"From Internet Speed Monitor" spyware/ popup removal

Hi, Welcome to TSG!!
Please close/disable all anti-virus and anti-malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of SDFix and make sure you are disconnected from the Internet after downloading the program but before extracting the files.
Very Important! Temporarily disable your anti-virus, script blocking and any anti-malware real-time protection before performing a scan. They can interfere with SDFix and remove some of its embedded files which may cause "unpredictable results".
Click on this link to see a list of programs that should be disabled. The list is not all inclusive. If yours is not listed and you don't know how to disable it, please ask.
Remember to re-enable the protection again afterwards before connecting to the Internet.
Download SDFix and save it to your Desktop.

Double click SDFix.exe and it will extract the files to %systemdrive%
(Drive that contains the Windows Directory, typically C:\SDFix)

Please then reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following :
Restart your computer
After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, tap the F8 key continually
Instead of Windows loading as normal, the Advanced Options Menu should appear
Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, then press Enter
Choose your usual account.

Open the extracted SDFix folder and double click RunThis.bat to start the script.
Type Y to begin the cleanup process.
It will remove any Trojan Services and Registry Entries that it finds then prompt you to press any key to reboot.
Press any Key and it will restart the PC.
When the PC restarts the Fixtool will run again and complete the removal process then display Finished, press any key to end the script and load your desktop icons.
Once the desktop icons load the SDFix report will open on screen and also save into the SDFix folder as Report.txt
(Report.txt will also be copied to the clipboard ready for posting back on the forum).
Paste the contents of the Report.txt back here with a new HijackThis log

Is there any way to speed up the time it takes to close the preview window? By default, it takes about 1.5 seconds for the window to close after moving the mouse off of the icon or preview pane. Can we make it instantaneous?

NOTE: Turning off taskbar animations in the "visual effects" does not shorten the time. It just takes away the animation, but, it still takes about 1.5 seconds for the preview to go away.

Any way to speed up my extremely slow machine? Task Manager always has, for example, "System" at a high % of RAM, always in red zone, but I read online that that's okay, that it just means that what the system isn't working on is referred to as the RAM that isn't being used, but everything is so slow during every step of work, every little step is slow, resulting in too much frustration. If Task Manager has all the answers when it comes to where the RAM is going, is this high % of "System" process really okay? Any way to alleviate any issues? I already googled how to make the system faster which mainly resulted in my uninstalling a lot of unneeded programs but I still don't remember the computer being this slow before Windows 10, for example, even if that may be unrelated.

A "manual configuration" is supposed to speed up the time it takes for FireFox to load.....

Start Firefox3 and go to Tools Menu >>> Option >>> (in the new window) chose Advanced >>> Network Tab >>> (in connection Table) press Setting button >>> (in the new window) chose Manual Proxy Configuration >>> type in the HTTP Proxy Field: 127.0.0.1 >>> and Port: 0 >>> click OK >>> click OK >>> restart your firefox3

What exactly is happening with a "manual proxy configuration"?
Is anything compromised or would any functionality of the browser be lessened by configuring a manual proxy configuration?
Why doesn't FireFox have it set like this to begin with if it causes a faster start up?

Very frustrating- Earlier I was informed there was a quick fix but I got mixed reviews...I made the change in registry> HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Microsoft/Windows/Current Version/Explorer/RemoteComputer/NameSpace and deleted the {D6277990-4C6A-11CF-8D87-00AA0060F5BF} key...When accessing Windows Vista and 7 users remotely I noticed an error which wasn't an issue on my end and it resolved my issue accessing winxp users MUCH faster.

I opened Task Scheduler, I noticed that status of Elevator scheduled task was 0xFFFFFFFF – this translates to ERROR_UNHANDLED_ERROR.
I tried to enable it but it still shows Elevator (unhandled) in history but the the scheduled tasks are loading... I'm afraid to mess with it again. Should I just try to put the key back again???
 

A:Solved: Trying to speed up Share View (xp tweak) "error code 0xFFFFFFFF"

You should never make any changes to a computer that you cannot easily undo.

If the error appeared after making a registry change, then restoring the undamaged registry would seem a logical course of action. Other changes could have been made in the registry in entries that rely on that one, so a whole, undamaged registry should be restored for best results.

i just bought a 100 pack of memorex cd-r 52x 700mb 80 min. my burner's maximum speed is 40x. i put a cd in my burner and tried to burn using my normal nero 6 program, but i got a "disk speed error" right after or during the lead-in. i tried burning with cd-da, and it also failed. as well as WMP. i was planning on returning the disks, but i still dont understand why these discs dont work. im not doing anything differently, or so i think. SOMETIMES (twice) these discs have burned sucessfully, but none else. i try to burn both MP3 and WMA formats into an audio cd.

Running Windows ME desktop Dell Dimension 4100. Past few months, when trying to do Speed Disk defrag of C drive, I get pop-up: "An error has been detected that can be fixed by running NDD. We recommend that you run it now." Then, I do NDD,"examining Drive C", in which action goes back and forth between Partition Table and Boot record ... sometimes proceeds to File Structure, then goes back to Boot Record, Partition Table, like a loop. Never completes all the steps. Now, neither NDD nor Speed Disk work. Had worked fine til a few months ago.

Does anyone have suggestions? I fear that the system will get clogged arteries if I do not do the defrag. BTW...the Windows Defrag doesn't work, either! Had worked in the recent past.

Appreciate your help!

Apologises for the delay getting to your log. The helpers here are all volunteers and we have been very busy lately. If you are still having malware problems,follow instructions below.

================

You are using an outdated version of Hijackthis. Please uninstall from Add/Remove programs, and delete your current version.

Next, download HijackThis to your desktop

Alternate link

Double-click on the file you just downloaded.
Click on the "Unzip" button to install. It will by default install to the directory - C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis

Upon install, HijackThis should open for you.

Should it not open, navigate to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis and double click on HijackThis.exe

1. If it gives you an intro screen, just choose 'Do a system scan and save a logfile'.
2. If you don't get the intro screen, just hit Scan and then click on Save log.
3. Do not post that log, instead, do this next:

=====================================================

Download Deckard's System Scanner (DSS) to your Desktop. Note: You must be logged onto an account with administrator privileges.Close all applications and windows.
Double-click on dss.exe to run it, and follow the prompts.
When the scan is complete, two text files will open - main.txt <- this one will be maximized and extra.txt <-this one will be minimized
Copy (Ctrl+A then Ctrl+C) and paste (Ctrl+V) the contents of main.txt here.
Please attach extra.txt to your post.
To attach a file to a new post, simplyClick the[Manage Attachments] button under Additional Options > Attach Files on the post composition page, and
copy and paste the following into the "Upload File from your Computer" box:C:\Deckard\System Scanner\extra.txt

Click Upload.
What DSS will do: create a new System Restore point in Windows XP and Vista.
clean your Temporary Files, Downloaded Program Files, and Internet Cache Files, and also empty the Recycle Bin on all drives.
check some important areas of your system and produce a report for your analyst to review. DSS automatically runs HijackThis for you, but it will also install and place a shortcut to HijackThis on your desktop if you do not already have HijackThis installed.

I'm running on an HP, XP Home and even though I have Avast! virus protection and I run Adaware and Ewido I can't get rid of "By Internet Speed Monitor" popups. What should I do?

Hey,

I just formatted a drive (for my mp3 player) but I used 1024 byte block size (or allocation unit size) but I think it may have been 4096 bytes (4Kb) before. I know that the higher the block size, the faster read and writes are but the more space you waste for small files or at the end of a file.

Now I'm kind of noticing the player scans a lot longer for one song than before (which would make sense cause it's taking longer to read b/c of the smaller block size). OR I'm just imagining it. So I came here to ask, does it really make that big of a difference? Should I reformat it with 4Kb blocks?
 

A:How big of a difference in HD speed does "block size" make?

In the case of MP3s, they are quite a lot larger than either a 1024 or 4096 cluster size. When storing large files, you will see essentially no difference in slack space.

As for difference in performance, music plays only so fast (very slow) compared to the drive's ability to find and read data.

Slack becomes an issue when large numbers of your files are a size that is a small fraction the size of a cluster. i.e. 75 or 100 bytes when cluster size is 1024 and even worse when cluster is 4096; but, if your files are mostly a half Meg or more, slack space difference between clusters 1024 and 4096 is almost nonexistent.

Let's just take a look at the line quality.
Register at DSLReports and run their Line Quality Tests. It's best to run this test with a direct wired connection to eliminate any wireless issues from the results. It's useful many times to run this test several times, and we'd like to see each of the results. Post the results link from the top of the test display page for each test run here.

The link to post is near the top of the page and looks like:

If you wish to post this result to a forum, please copy/paste this URL
http://www.dslreports.com/linequality/nil/2357195 <- sample only, yours will obviously be different!
and your IP will be disguised.

Copy/paste that link here.

Note: You will have to enable PING (ICMP) request response either in your router (if you have one), or in your computer's firewall for direct modem connections. This is very important to get the most important part of the test to run.
DSLReports

Here's also the Line Quality Tests FAQ to help you understand the results. This will answer some questions about the line quality display.

Hello: I haven't noticed this as an issue until some recent w8 auto updates (last 2 months, is generous estimate). "Save as..." take about 20-30 seconds, for 2 3rd-party medium weight word processors, to display the folder window where your want to save. It looks like it takes the computer a while to "round up" all the directory info to display it in the "save as..." window.
-I did read here & elsewhere on changing the general option in the properties of a folder. I don't think that helped. I did also read (here?) about disconnecting the networked folders. I did do that, rebooted. There was no speedup. But then I remapped them all, and now MS-branded apps like wordpad & word/excel, do show the "save as..." window within a second or 2, as before. I don't know what's going on here. Advice? (Note: I do clean up the reg daily). Thank you.

A:speed up, some apps, "save as" times?

That's quite a few updates to sift through. Have you tried searching ms update list for one pertaining to file save dialogs? I tend to avoid updates unless I think I need a specific one or it's a service pack. So I haven't yet found an efficient way to search through them. Perhaps another poster has some ideas to make tracking down the culprit easier.

I just restored a Dell dimention 2400 pc. The only thing that bugs me is the fact that the "all programs" window fades in very slowly. It also pops up when I quickly run the curser over it. Is there timing settings for this?
 

A:how to speed up the opening of the "all programs" window?

If you have TweakUI installed, you can change the Menu Speed in their.

Or with a Registry entry.

A:Network gradually loses "speed"

It sounds like your router. Did you secure the wireless connection? It could be a neighbor using your wireless. You can also try by passing your router and plug into your modem directly. This will eliminate the modem. Does the problem affect both your desktop and you laptop?

Hi!

So I would need help setting up my LAN and limiting the network speed (max dl/ul).

Are there some kind of programs or something for that? -I have tried NetLimiter but with it I can only limit the "bridging" computers upload and download and not the different network cards speeds.

The limitations has to be made on this computer (aka wannaB server) and not on the separate computers that are connected to it.

Network cards:
Oliv - needs to be limited to max download ~150kB/s and upload 25kB/s (this one is connected even if it says it's not)
Switch - no need to limit or anything
ADSL Modem - as it says, this is where the interweb comes from
 

A:How could I limit network speed between different "cards"?

What OS the Pro or Home? If you got the Pro you can go into Group Policy and make some bandwidth restrictions. By default it's 20%. You can raise that up higher. Under QoS.

I will try to very slow "excellent" connection, speed? but be as brief as possible if I can "excellent" connection, but very slow speed? Here is my network setup I have computers connected to a Wire Gateway model Both are running XP Pro One is a PC "excellent" connection, but very slow speed? and it is hardwired to the gateway via ethernet cable the other is a laptop and it connects wirelessly to the network I also have a wi-fi enabled printer scanner copier that connects wirelessly to the network When everything is running smoothly both computers can see each other s shared files "excellent" connection, but very slow speed? and also access the printer However after the laptop has been online for about an hour the speed of the connection on the laptop starts to deteriorate At its best it runs at Mbps but begins to fall to Mbps after a while During this time the wireless adapter icon in the system tray continues to indicate that the signal strength is quot excellent quot even when the speed has fallen to Mbps I have no problems with the PC that is hardwired to the gateway it is only the laptop that is showing a problem I don t know very much about wireless networking and am unsure how to go about finding the source of this problem Since the gateway is also a firewall I have disabled the firewall software on both the PC and the laptop hoping that would provide a solution to my connection problem but no joy Can anyone point me in a direction here to begin my investigation of what the problem could be nbsp

I tried to post this in the correct forum but for some reason I am blocked from using the community part of the forums. Can you tell me why? Also I have been reading some good reviews on this speed fix tool but wanted some input on it before trying it. You know how easy it is to get tricked into saying yes to a scam and just invite a virus right on in so I am looking for some feedback on this new software. You can look it up at speed fix .com or just google it, but I'm sure you already knew that. Sorry if I posted in the wrong forum but if you could explain why I can't use the other ones then maybe I can do better at posting in the correct forum. Thanks for your time
 

A:"Speed Fix Tool", Anyone know if this a legit program

The short answer is NO.
Two reasons:

1. WOT rating (marked in red): https://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/speedfixtool.com?utm_source=addon&utm_content=popup-donuts
2.
Registry cleaners/optimizers are not recommended for several reasons:
Registry cleaners are extremely powerful applications that can damage the registry by using aggressive cleaning routines and cause your computer to become unbootable.

The Windows registry is a central repository (database) for storing configuration data, user settings and machine-dependent settings, and options for the operating system. It contains information and settings for all hardware, software, users, and preferences. Whenever a user makes changes to settings, file associations, system policies, or installed software, the changes are reflected and stored in this repository. The registry is a crucial component because it is where Windows "remembers" all this information, how it works together, how Windows boots the system and what files it uses when it does. The registry is also a vulnerable subsystem, in that relatively small changes done incorrectly can render the system inoperable. For a more detailed explanation, read Understanding The Registry.

Not all registry cleaners are created equal. There are a number of them available but they do not all work entirely the same way. Each vendor uses different criteria as to what constitutes a "bad entry". One cleaner may find entries on your system that will not cause problems when removed, another may not find the same entries, and still another may want to remove entries required for a program to work.

Not all registry cleaners create a backup of the registry before making changes. If the changes prevent the system from booting up, then there is no backup available to restore it in order to regain functionality. A backup of the registry is essential BEFORE making any changes to the registry.

Improperly removing registry entries can hamper malware disinfection and make the removal process more difficult if your computer becomes infected. For example, removing malware related registry entries before the infection is properly identified can contribute to system instability and even make the malware undetectable to removal tools.

The usefulness of cleaning the registry is highly overrated and can be dangerous. In most cases, using a cleaner to remove obsolete, invalid, and erroneous entries does not affect system performance but it can result in "unpredictable results".
Unless you have a particular problem that requires a registry edit to correct it, I would suggest you leave the registry alone. Using registry cleaning tools unnecessarily or incorrectly could lead to disastrous effects on your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again. For routine use, the benefits to your computer are negligible while the potential risks are great.

Hello everyone
I have this problem for more than 3 months for now...

The INSTRUCTION AT "0x00a96ce0"referenced memory at "000000000" couldn't be written".

That's always what i get when i restart my computer,just before screen goes dark.
I believe that it has to do something with Microsoft updates.The reason i believe this, is that i once reinstalled my PC and didn't have any problem until i didn't update my PC.
And i posted here that thinking my problem was solved but unfortunately i was wrong.

Please if you have any tips on this one let me know it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Hi Guys, any ideas how to access my external hard drive [TOSHIBA MK3029GACE] device manager can see it but it does not appear in disc management.

I use this HDD perfectly in my car HDD player. But when I try to connect it to my Laptop, it does not show up in disk management.

Please check the attached screen shot..

Thanks for the help....

A:HDD shows in "Device Manager" but not in "DiskPart"or" Disk Management

Specs show that drive has a ATA-6 interface (P-ATA, or IDE). How are you connecting this drive to your laptop? Does the laptop have a PATA or SATA connection? Does it use an adapter?
