ghostery extension - good or useless?

Q: ghostery extension - good or useless?

It appears since putting ghostery on FF/SR Iron/Opera - I have problems with images rendering, getting broken links and what not.

not sure if this is a problem with ghostery or something else but it's consistent throughout the browsers

FF-6
SR IRon - 13
Opera - 11.5

Preferred Solution: ghostery extension - good or useless?

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 recently updated a friend's IE8 and installed the ad block plus and ghostery addons since he is constantly plagued with issues.
Since all of this, when he opens an attachment from a webmail site, there is no option to "open" the attachment, only to save. Wondering if this is some simple check box that I am missing?

Also, when he logs into the webmail, it opens in a new window, which is fine, but the new wind is actually smaller, by about .5 inches on the right and top, so its not full screen. Something minor, but I cannot see why a new window would not open full screen.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

A:IE 8 - ADP & Ghostery

Was able to get 'some' files to open directly from the webmail client, such as PDFs. However, I cannot get HTM files to open. When i double click the HTM attachment, it states that the file needs to be saved first, then opened. This is with IE8 and Chrome as well. That being said, i AM able to right click on the file and 'open in new tab/window' without issue.

Makes no sense why I can right click and open but cannot double click?

Resolved the resizing issue just by having new pages open in a new tab instead of new window.

I use chrome. i have the ABP extension. does it make any difference in the level of privacy or page load time if i choose to block 'web bugs' in ghostery ? have u guys used it? what r its pros and cons ?
 

A:is ghostery of any use?

Let's start with the background.

When you load a page, your browser downloads a HTML file which tells it what to display.
This file will contain all the text on the page, as well as some information ensuring it's formatted correctly.
However some files, including pictures, are loaded separately. So the browser sees the code text for an image in the HTML and it inserts the image from the specified site.
Web bugs are are invisible images or other files that are loaded from a different site.
When your browser goes to collect them, that site then knows what page you've been on. It can therefore track your movements across the web wherever you visit a site that has their bug.

I don't use ghostery myself, but if it does what it says, it would prevent those sites from tracking you through their web bugs. I don't think there would be any noticeable difference in page load times.

Platform: Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
IE9 32 bit
 
HELP!! For some reason, I cannot disable the Ghostery add-on for IE9. This problem occurs for accounts with or without admin privileges, & also occurs even when I launch IE9 as Administrator. For all other add-ons, the 'disable' button in the 'Manage add-ons' dialog box works fine. But for Ghostery, the disable button is greyed out & does not allow me to access this button. Does not matter if I launch IE9 as Administrator, the problem still occurs.
 
Note that I do not want to uninstall Ghostery for IE. I tried that & then when I launched IE9 after the uninstall, the message "Ghostery is loading..." was displayed, nothing happened, & IE9 froze & was then unusable.
 
So how do I disable Ghostery for IE9 if the above will not work?
 
Thank you.

I've just recently started using Ghostery Blocking Content Ghostery which is an Opera Ghostery Blocking Content extension for blocking tracking bugs while browsing It seems to be fine for most browsing but when trying to make an eBay purchase or when Mr Rebates tries to hand me off to TigerDirect I get a somewhat obscure alert saying that the content was blocked and to use the details button to allow it but when I use the details button all I see is a blank window which I think has an add button however I don't know what to add the specific bug being blocked or the url of either Mr Rebate or TigerDirect I can work around this by disabling Ghostery long enough to make the transaction but that becomes rather tedious Can someone either tell me how to add the right thing to the details window or how to determine exactly which bug to enable Since it has a list of bugs I really don't want to have to go through them one at a time

Hi,
FF just updated to 43.0.1. I decided to check if Ghostery has been auto checking new trackers. When I clicked Options it opens a new window as per usual but the window is blank. It7 has the address in the address bar, Ghostery does not indicate it is blocking anything, and when I scroll over the noscript icon it offers four items; forbid resource:, blocked sites, options, about noscript 2.7
The first one does nothing, blocked sites just lists what is being blocked, Options opens the options settings and the last one the about info.

I suspect the problem is my noscript settings but I have no idea how to determine what it is exactly before I start changing things.

I'm using uBlock Origin, it's light and simple to use. I used in the past all of these adblocker and I think uBlock Origin is the Best. What is your favorite ad blocker? The light is more uBlock Origin also in your opinion?
 

A:uBlock Origin Vs Ghostery Vs ABP

I have mixed experience with uBlock O. Not all pages render properly. ABP works fine out of the box. Ghostery is not an ad blocker. You can use some of its features but basically obsolete if you are using an ad blocker already.

ABP is a bit heavier than uBlock O but then again, hardly noticeable unless you running 10+ tabs and have a mid end or low end system.

Ghostery I would just steer away from it, plain and simple, due to their policy (google it for more info).

Voted ABP based on 3 options above.

Windows 7 Home Premium, IE 9
I can install and load Ghostery 3.0.0 for IE 9 in an admin account without a problem.
But when I try to install and load Ghostery 3.0.0 for IE 9 in an account that does not have admin privileges, Ghostery installs (after supplying admin password), launches IE, and then appears to be stuck in an infinite loop. The message "Ghostery is loading" appears for several seconds within IE9, the Ghostery icon blinks, then this repeats again over and over. I tried uninstalling Ghostery from my machine, then just installing it in the user account - same results. Note that in the IE 9 Tools menu --> Manage add-ons window, ghostery does not appear.

How do I fix this?

A:Cannot load Ghostery in a 'user' account

Hi -To start with, I had not heard of this up to now, so I decided to follow it through .......You must first choose the browser that you wish to apply Ghostery to. I use Internet Explorer over 90% of the time, so this is the choice.The install was very simple, and the download extremely quick, with the reminder to disconnect from the internet while it installs.I only installed it on my basic account, because I do not run several accounts, since we just USE the computer and we have no secrets ! The install shows up in Control Panel > Programs and Features if I wish to remove it, and it also shows up in Windows Explorer in Programs.Now I have a Tiny icon on my top browser bar with a number on it, that i assume is the background items it is detecting -From what I have seen, you may as well just install MVP Hosts file (in this area) as I have and it blocks over 1,500 entries quietly.This program just shows the items being blocked with a line through the programs snooping but being blocked -http://getsatisfaction.com/ghostery < < A link to their forums if you wish to ask for specific details related to your problems -I will only leave this on for a day or 2 to see if there are problems or dramas to post back about later -Regards -

Ghostery is a popular privacy/anti-tracking add-on supporting major web browsers, including both Firefox and Chrome. However, Ghostery has not been without its critics and has elicited a fair amount of controversy along the way.
A recent update to Ghostery for Chrome, Safari, Opera and Firefox introduces a new option that is almost certain to add to the controversial nature of the extension. The option introduces a messaging tool, Evidon (the makers of Ghostery) call it Consumer Messaging Platform, which allows the company to message users directly within the web browser.

I got a idea for a Chrome extension, but no where to request it. When you install extensions in Chrome it places all the extensions to the right side of the address bar. My idea is to have a extension bar below the bookmark bar that automatically hides it's self when the mouse isn't hovering over. You can keep the chrome browser screen estate but not have your extensions obstruct room, making things look cleaner.

I had an installation of Firefox 3.5.5 on my system which (all of a sudden) refused to do anything, I could'nt even scroll up or down the page, or enter any text in the search box, it just froze. I uninstalled this and downloaded another version which is exactly the same. Also, I had a recent installation of Kaspersky anti-virus 2009 which told me that my operating system (XP service pack 3) had changed since the installation of Kaspersky and that I had to reinstall it, which I had to do manually as it would not uninstall from add/remove programs. I reinstalled Kaspersky which went the same way as firefox (totally unresponsive).Everything else on my computer is working fine, including Internet Explorer, has anyone any idea what the problem may be?.

Hello everyone! Let me just begin by thanking anyone that takes the time to help out....I appreaciate it. Well, I recently bought a GPS unit for my car, and it came with the Mapsource software to download maps for navigation. Upon installation it get a message saying ther was a problem with the registry "Win\win_regkey.h line 478". I contacted customer support at Garmin and they told me to uninstall the software, delete their stuff from the registry, and reinstall the product. I've tried this a few times, and nothing. I keep getting the same message during installation. So now I can't use my GPS since i can't download the maps, and I don't konw if it's a software problem or a PC problem. So if anyone can help out it would be awesome.

Hi and welcome to TSG,

Please do this. Click here: http://www.sherrylynn.us/HijackThis.exe to download Hijack This. It’s very important that you save it to its own folder on your hard drive, such as program files (not temporary files or the desktop), so that it can create proper back-ups and be able to restore them if necessary.

Close all open windows and open Hijack This. Click “Scan”. When the scan is finished (it only takes a second), the scan button will change to “Save Log”. Click on “Save Log” and save it to NotePad. Copy the entire log and paste it here.

DO NOT FIX ANYTHING YET, most items that appear in the log are harmless or even needed. Wait for someone to analyze the log and advise.

Years ago I subscribed to Ad-Aware Pro (now v.10.5) and Advanced System Care (now v.6.1.9) because they seemed complementary.  Over the years they've both upgraded, and I'm no longer sure that anti-virus+ and anti-malware+ products can stay out of each other's way, let alone work as a team.  After puzzling over both products' ads for an hour or so, I can't get an answer to that question.
Can anyone suggest
1. whether they are both valuable together, or
2. where a not-too-tech user can learn how to work that out?

A:Useless protection?

Hello -
Due to the fact that Advanced System Care contains an Antivirus + Registry Optimiser/Editor in the one program, it has never been a favorite program of mine. I find that these 2 are not suited to be in one program. Plus I do not trust any IObit programs. (Personally only)
(1) Ad-Aware is considered to be the "old school" version of Antivirus these days generally, and has been well overtaken by most other Antivirus programs or Suites, like Kaspersky, Avira, avast!, and ESET, and even the newer Norton versions.
 
As a rule, I find that a free vresion of the popular Antivirus programs meets the current Ad-Aware versions.
Please read the Pinned items at the top of this section, Although some are just a bit techie or even a bit dated, they contain some of the best information that you can find anywhere. BleepingComputer is not linked to any Brand or Maker, so all items are very objective in their content.
The lists of programs here are updated on a regular basis, so all details and links are quite recent..
 
I hope that you never allow 2 active Antivirus programs to run at the same time, as this will defeat the purpose of the program to search for infections and to do the job that it is / was designed for. You can run an active Antimalware program along with an Antivirus program in most cases, or even install Antimalware programs to act as Inactive Scanners (cleanup programs) at any time.
 
(2) Please read a few of the notices in the heading of this forum area to get an idea of what I mean.
Always Uninstall one Antivirus program fully if you decide to change to another brand of Antivirus -
 
If you wish for more detailed links, please post back and they will always be provided for you.

Hi In my opinion UAC that comes in Windows is totally useless and it really just slows your computing down I just have to do more clicks to get things done in my opinion And I don't is Useless in UAC 7 Windows know how it protects noobs from UAC is Useless in Windows 7 viruses malwares in anyway For eg I am noob I see flashy mouse cursors banner on some UAC is Useless in Windows 7 site and I click on banner it downloaded an exe Remember IE is asking me whether I want to download or not but Nooo I just ignore IE and go ahead with the download becuase I want flashy cursors then I run exe and UAC pop's up but again I allow it becuase those flashy cursors are so tempting and I must have the flashy cursor on my PC etc In the end I ignore everything and still install malware on my PC etc So how did the UAC or adding more warning which noobs etc don't even care to read will protect them So putting in UAC is just bogus UAC is Useless in Windows 7 and waste of time I know it can be disabled etc but I don't see the point in putting it there in the first time Anyways my thumb rule is that if my antivirus software etc says that X file has virus then I simply go with that if that file is important for me then I try to clean it if cleaning fails I delete it No point in keeping an infected file on my system It will only make things worse So NOOBS here's a tip When your antivirus says its a virus then don't ignore that Just clean it if it can be else delete it If you follow this practice I assure you that you will never get virus in your PC Thanks

A:UAC is Useless in Windows 7

Well, the UAC is actually very useful, especially if you have an administrative account, but use a limited account. Don't know why you should use a limited user? Here is why: Why use a standard user account instead of an administrator account?

The UAC allows the limited user to enter an administrative password so that he can access things normally restricted to Administreator accounts (useful and very much more secure). It also prevents many changes a potential virus could try to make as it restricts the virus from making administrative changes. Believe me, it is a very good extra layer of security. In addition, IE(9) has a built in screening process (called Smartscreen filter) that can prevent known malware from downloading to the computer (it will let you know that the program is a known risk). On top of this, windows has a built in firewall and spyware scanner (windows defender). You can further download MSE for an integrated virus protection that runs quite well on windows 7.

This doesn't even mention other free security protections for use outside microsoft.

The best practice is common sense, but often common sense can be forgotten, even by the best of us. Any way to increase security can be very helpful in the event you receive a virus. It is the ever furious battle between security and convenience. You choose that which you care more for.

Hi Folks:
I hope someone can help me out there. I have Windows Xp installed on my computer. But the trouble is that it occupies almost 11 gigs of space on the 20 gig portion my partitioned hard drive. When I open explorer to check this out; it says that Windows is only occupying around 3.5 gigs of space. Can anybody please tell me what is occupying the missing 7.5 gigs of space and how can I recover this lost space.

I suspect that I may have lost this space over time due to ongoing updates from Windows. Does this make sense to anyone?

When I try to defrag this drive I get a flag that says I only have 11% of free space to work with when I should have around 50%.

I hope I have provided enough information for somebody out there to help.

System Restore keeps saving restore points which caused that file to continue to grow, and it grows prodigiously. The following is from Answers Microsoft."The culprit is probably System Restore.Go to Start/All Programs/Accessories/System Tools/Disk Cleanup. Select to clean up the files for All Users.You can also select the Clean Up System Files button. This will show a new Tab called More Options. Click this tab and in the System Restore and Shadow Copies section, click the Cleanup Button. This will delete all but the most recent System Restore Point.To configure the amount of disk space that System Restore is allowed to use:Open Control Panel / System / Advanced System Settings.Select the System Protection Tab.In the Protection Settings box, select the System Drive (Usually C:).Click the Configure Button.In the Disk Space Usage section, use the slider to change the amount of disk space allocated to System Restore.Apply/OK."

My Lenovo laptop running Useless DLL message error XP Pro SP has started giving me an error message quot Useless DLL error message Files that are required for Windows to run properly must be copied to the DLL Cache Please insert your Windows Professional CD-ROM now quot I don t have a Windows CD The OS was loaded when I bought the machine Lenovo supplies a set of recovery disks with the OS on them but that isn t what Windows is looking for Microsoft won t provide an OS disk if the system was installed by the seller and refers me to Lenovo Lenovo says it can t supply the disk Windows is looking for and refers me to Microsoft The error message doesn t tell me what files it s looking for I tried System Restore going back to a restore point a couple of days ahead of the first appearance of the error message Didn t help I have a DLLCache folder on one of the recovery disks If I knew what was missing I could probably restore it from there But Windows likes to keep its secrets Please - can anyone suggest something nbsp

A:Useless DLL error message

Windows is looking for the original i386 folder. Do a search for the i386 folder to see if it is on your hdd, usual location is C:\. You may have one located in the Windows directory but that isn't the one Windows wants.

Check to see if you have the i386 folder on one of the recovery disks. If so, copy the folder to the root C:\ drive. If the folder is already on the C:\ or if you copied it there, you'll need to go into the registry and let Windows know it's location.

To do this:

Start>>Run

In Run type regedit and click OK.

In the registry editor, navigate to the following key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup

In the right pane, look for the string "SourcePath".

To change "SourcePath" to the current location of the I386 folder, double click on "SourcePath".

In the "Edit String" box, under "value data", type the location of the I386 folder. If the folder is on your c:\ drive, type in c:\. Do not type c:\i386 just c:\.

Click OK.

Close regedit.

You may have to reboot for the change to take affect.

After reboot open Run and type sfc /scannow click OK

Windows will replace any missing or corrupt system files. It may take a while so be patient.

Hey all I will save everyone a headache and lay it all down real simple so that anyone hopefully can grab some sort of information off it AVG as it were is a decent antivirus program or you can get it bundled for a fee in an internet security package Just like the rest though eg norton internet security McAfee security System Mechanic Pro E T C the anti virus or internet security is only as good as the user allows it to be I will explain so please do not start getting confused It is very basic so I will start with the firewall features bundled in some of the products The firewall is IS Useless... it? Or Internet Security designed to detect inbound threats it then tells your anti-virus that the threat is there and allows the anti-virus to do it s work The anti-Virus is designed to then give you the option to usually depends on software in this case I will use AVG as an example Move to Vault Delete or Ignore Some do it automatically while others are Both manual and Auto The one thing they all do share though is this Simplicity How you might ask It is simple if you disable a feature or download something knowing it poses a possible Internet Security Useless... Or IS it? threat let anything PAST that firewall then the firewall is basically deemed useless as you are not allowing it to do it s job It is the same thing as with AVS anti-Virus software if you disable any of it s features then you are crippling that program and thus preventing it from fully doing it s job So now why would all of Internet Security Useless... Or IS it? this be useless Well it is an it isn t and is explained on levels The first level is your basic every other day user This type of person has no idea where the viruses go what they do or what to do WITH them For these people I recommend full internet security to handle those issues for them The second level is intermediate they Internet Security Useless... Or IS it? know of viruses and what they do but are not entireley sure how to handle them without anti-virus helping So I recomment using just the anti-virus The third level is professional people who know what viruses do where they go and how to displose of them without the use of any software But these people generally do not need to look as they also have the understanding of how to avoid getting viruses altogether What sets them apart it s simple just do as others have stated check sites and learn the patterns used to see how you too can detect where you should and shouldn t visit on the web and you too can be just as safe as the professionals But don t get overly confident we all get an infection from time to time but they also say quot don t cry over spilled milk quot because no matter how hard you try your computer will never be invincible and this IS afterall a world made up of things that are made to break But this is just me rambling If you have any questions just PM me or email me and I will get back to you as soon as I can I hope this answered atleast question out there nbsp

Why is it that we are able to 'show characters' when setting a password for network connections? Not to mention anybody can go back to it for reference later on.
Now anybody at a company is able to look up the password, set their Ipods or whatever else they may have and surf the web.
Is there any way to reverse this? Only the set up administrator should be allowed to view this. Not all administrators.

I received a Dell computer, on which they had partitioned 40 gigs of the installed hard drive for 'Backup'. I already back up everything on an external and would like to consolidate this partitioned space into my primary partition; hence removing the partition. Any quick ways to do this? I am running XP sp2.

Thanks and good luck!

A:Remove useless partition

Well, frankly, I would just delete the existing data and use the partition as-is,
unless it's NOT ntfs -- then reformat into NTFS.

If you have a special reason for fighting with that, then Partition Magic will
delete / combine partitions.

A:CPU being flooded with useless programs

Take a look at this thread. There appears to be a new virus that the AV and other malware companies haven't caught onto yet and can be a bugger to get rid of. Google Chrome seems to be the common denominator.

Another troublesome virus is Trovi. It appears sneak in with Google Chrome and hijacks the browser, replacing it with its own. It also is a bear to get rid of.

A week ago my computer started slowing, and as of two days ago, it runs impossibly slow, and most programs won't even open, including my task manager. It will not system restore. I decided to go to safe mode, ran a scan using super antispyware, which came up with all harmless cookies. Then, I ran avira, and even though it crashed both times I ran it in the 60's, the first time it crashed at 62.7%, and it sensed a virus it called dldr/digstream. I found it was in my program files, so I deleted the digstream folder (usually an espn/disney folder) instead of uninstalling. Then the second time I ran avira after restarting my pc in safe mode, it found what it calls TR/Vundo.Gen Trojan in my windows temp folder, and it calls it quarantine object 4c810149.qua. I am stuck and don't know quite what to do to get my computer back.

It just appeared one day and will not disappear when I right-click and follow the usual procedure for shutting down an externally connected device. I use this feature regularily for my external back-up or MP3 player. If I do plug in one of these external devices, a second icon appears appears and disconnects properly, but this other icon still remains. I have rebooted - it doesn't go away and I have looked at the 'Start Manu' - it is not there.

Can anyone help?

A:IE useless after broadband install

Ok a couple of questions for you.
1.You sd you reinstalled Norton so can norton connect to liveupdate? (if yes then skip to number four)
2.Open your device manager and check for Network connection and make sure you ethernet/lan port you are using for cable is enabled and working properly?(if no then you have found the problem most likely, If yes goto 3)
3.Go into network connections double click the connection and see if there is any activity?(If yes goto number 4 If no then step 5)
4.Ok if your here than most likely internet explorer's option are misconfigured.
5.Ok if your here than you have something blocking your connection it could be a bad port setting or it could be that your modem is configured to an old IP address. At least we will have narrowed thing down. let us know.

Hi new here so hi lol Anyway back to the Disk is useless Recovery question I just recently purchased a computer that came preinstalled with windows vista and it came Recovery Disk is useless with a recovery disk or I had to make one etc Now on my system I have partition that were made by the manufacturer One is a hidden recovery disk thing one is a System Drive S which is GB and the rest GB is C drive with vista installed Now I want to get rid of that C drive a split it into partitions so now I can have a data drive This is easy to do since vista has this splitter thing that allows you to do this But the problem i am having is what if Vista dies and I need to reinstall it Usually you use the recovery disk and just recover the C drive but the only option I have is delete everything on the computer and restore it to factory settings Will this delete the data drive as well Also another thing that I might consider was to delete the whole disk and just install XP on it with partition one for XP and one for data The reason why I want to do this is because vista is still not upto scratch yet as in some of the old software doesn t work with it so my plan was to only install vista when it became stable and old software works on it Again the question I have is when I want to install vista again Since it is an recovery disk and the only option it has is to delete everything and restore it to the factory settings how would I be able to keep the D drive from not being deleted Also I could dual boot which is a great option but because the recovery disk is so useless even that might be difficult to do Is there a way around this Could I download an illegal copy of Vista and just use my product key Since that will solve all the problems Thanks in advance nbsp

Hello from France I just realized that I have lost most of ten years' mail archives both sent and received as you can guess In fact I then realized that it happened not today but a few days ago as the automatic compressing of OE IE XP SP went wrong somehow Problem is I was not aware that several files on big as...useless? dbx as Recovered files the hard disk had been corrupted once Mo now Ko so I very neatly went on with backing up the whole directory to my dedicated DVD In the meantime of course I have kept using OE hence writing data onto the hard disk Once I became aware of the horror I tried to relocate a few softs I had not used in Recovered dbx files as big as...useless? years and so tried one after the other in order to recover whatever I could from a the directory where OE files are located b the recycler directory of the revelant unit c the DVD I do the backups onto d just about wherever I wished might do I finally managed to locate and retrieve all of the lost files mainly I think as the panic somewhat blurred my mind from the bin So here I was with those proud ten or so files ranging from Ko to Ko as they should Knowing how it's done Recovered dbx files as big as...useless? I made OE recognize them but when I selected one I found that OE saw it as empty Of course the same went with the others I then tried DBXtract that's I think and WOE Extract from but neither could find anything inside them So I did open the lighter one with WordPad and I found that it does contain mails lots of them but obviously not in the form that OE can use them So here is my desperate call would there be a program capable of retrieving my buried precious mails inside those obviously corrupted dbx files I have read that some exist but they seem to be quite expensive so I'm not willing to buy one and then find it is useless Thanks for your patience thanks in advance for any clue Desperate Regards from France PS I first misplaced this post onto a different forum but then again I cannot seem to find an OE dedicated place thanks for pointing me to the right forum if you can

Please could you help with the slowness of my computer which has only just started in the last month or two for no apparent reason. When calling up Taskmaster I notice that my physical memory is sky high (sometimes 100%) and my CPU usage is dancing up and down all the time. As far as I know I have done nothing or downloaded nothing to cause this but I am old and not at all conversant with how computers work!

I was wondering, Is there a program or way to shut down some services and processes that are not needed so that I can speed up my computer.

A:shut down some useless services

Hi mr. macintosh and welcome to TSF !

Safest way is to do it manually. Never trust third party softwares unless you're told they're sure by a bunch of specialists. And then again, safest way is still to prevent those services and processes to start by disabling them manually one by one making sure none of them is required by some application you'll eventually need one day.

You'll find most of the annoying ones if you run msconfig (start => run, type msconfig) and go to the services or startup items tabs. I would highly recommend that you google first about each process and service to make sure you don't end with a non bootable computer. You'll find some helpfull sites about the services here.

I would also recommend that you make some backup of your current system drive before you make any changes to it in order to be able to return to a working state should something screw up. We have a nice tutorial on how to use XXclone here : http://www.techsupportforum.com/arti...e-another.html. Another solution we advise is a DriveImage / BartPE combo, here : http://www.techsupportforum.com/arti...ard-drive.html. The difference is that the XXclone "ghost" is bootable directly but you'll need a dedicated partition for it while DriveImage saves the ghost as a single file and requires a third party boot CD (bart PE for instance) to restore the image.

Here are some tutorials you should read :

A:Vista PC virtually useless...

I suggest that you proceed to to our Security Center, Virus/Trojan/Spyware Help Forum, to have your system reviewed by a Security Analyst. Please be sure to follow THESE STEPS carefully before posting your logs in the Security Forum.

Please be patient as the Security Analysts are very busy and one will get to you as soon as possible.

Your other option is to re-install Vista (my preference). I would definitely for go COMODO - it & Vista do not play nice together.

I've aquired the downloader small 6.ay virus weeks ago. My AVG detected but can't clean it. I bought adaware, it detects it but can't clean it. I removed AVG borrowed mcaffees took the update, still no clean.

So, this is an old, 8 weeks virus and yet no scanners can clean it? I tried 2 online scanners that said it cleaned the downloader for others, but it didn't work for me.

My point, virus scanners are not capable of cleaning these new wave of virus that use system restore to hide.

Many convoluded steps are required to clean this, but the commercial scanners we pay big bucks for should be updated to handle this.

Reformat is the best virus cleaner, and a firewall that works. Don't waste your money on any virus scanners.

A:Are virus scanners now useless?

i guess virus creators are more and more creative nowadays... i am taking a wild guess... but i think the reason why you cannot clean most of these kind of viruses is because the "creative" virus makers decided to use windows ability to hide processes (running applications) and services.... in a differnet place... if you use windows xp or 2k if you click ctrl + alt + del to call out the task manager and go to the process tab... if you can find the running exe of the file that your virus scanner found... BINGO all you have to do is end process using the botton below the task manager and the run the antivirus or adaware to get rid of it.....

another possibility is..... if not like situation above and you are getting this virus in the path that looks like "\system volume information" then it is in the system recovery folder... go to control panel and click "system" then go to "system restore" check "turn off all system restore" and click "apply" to purge the system restore folder.... then uncheck and click apply to get it back on...

if it still doens't work then... i really have no idea... haha hope somebody more experience will help you on this

cheers ;)


ACE_MACE

by the way i didn't mention the reason why i think it is like this....

to remove most running viruses it requires the antivirus to have the ability to shut down processes or services or programs and mess with the registry... personally i don't think that's a good idea -.- because virus makers know this and changes the name of the virus all the time... and i don't think antivirus should have the abilty to shut down suspected program or suspected registry... cuz there are simply too many suspects with not much pattern... if that makes any sense

secondly, i think windows restricted the access to the "system restore volume" and set it as the most secure... (if you can't find it you would realize you have to enable the "view hidden SYSTEM FILE" option... they are packed in packages... i think only the microsoft people know what is in each of those packages... plus some issue regarding their willingness to share this information with the public... i guess it makes it even harder for antivirus designer to do what you suggested...

but on the other hand... i think you have a point... it should become more automatic so that we do not have to searcfh at antivbirus website and read though 10 pages of note on how to manually remove the virus... but i think it'll come... eventually ;)

cheers

A:Well, Now My Hard Disk is Useless.

I can't edit my long post in the Nintendo 3DS' web browser.

SeaTools for DOS is being run now and already it alerted me to some volume errors. Over 80 blocks were found bad.

There were issues with SeaTools where it would crash to the DOS prompt partway through a task. There were no issues reported within the last hour.

Just got one of those new TI 83 Plus Silver Edition things, and apparently they had some compatibility issues with Windows XP that they "hoped to resolve by December of 2002." Wow. I still can't use the TI Connect or USB Graph Link stuff to get those nifty word proscessors, a sweet OS (for a calculator?!) and yes, my favorite games. I came here hoping someone knew how they could help me... TI's Tech Support never mailed back. It's automated (gasp!) anyways. So... If anyone can help me... Please, by all means... Help me...

I just switched from XP to 7. After removing Aero and other frou frou, W7 seemed not so bad--even good. But what am I to make of "Libraries"? They seem to provided a limited capability similar to a more general capability that we have had all the time.

We have Folders (once called directories, but let that pass). Folders are File System entries that contain other File System entries. Generally speaking there are three types of entries: File entries which provide OS access to the file as stored, sub-folder entries, and shortcut entries (once called links, but let that pass too), to other files and folders (and probably other shortcuts as well. I've never tried).

So what are Libraries? They appear to be folders that are limited, in that they can only contain shortcuts to other folders--not files, and not libraries. Am I wrong?

They might be talking about the system resources, which adding more ram will not really help with. What you might want to do is check to see how many things are running at startup. Go to Start -- run and type in msinfo.exe and press enter. Here is where you can go and disable things that load at startup by going to the startup tab.

Generally the more things that are loading at startup, then the less system resources you will have free as each one takes up system resources.

Basically system resource is a reserved amount of memory in Win 95, 98 and ME that is used sort of like a starting and tracking point for each program and program window and there is only so much of it. It does not matter that you might have 512 megs of ram and the programs that are running only use 100 megs. Your system resources can still drop too low. This is one of the limitations of the 9.x series of Microsoft OSes is the way it handles resources.
For a complete description you can read http://www.windows-help.net/techfiles/win-resources.html

The little purple guy is called bonzi buddy and there is actually a program that will detect him and get rid of him called adaware. Go over to www.lavasoftusa.com and download it. Install it and run it to detect any spyware. Even if this is not the root cause of your problem, getting that piece of spyware off can help with internet surfing problems and possibly other problems. You might also be surprised at the amount of other things it finds on your system.
