I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Pls anyone who can advise me on how to fix this minor issue.. So I had a windows welcome tune whenever I on my PC.. but after a few minutes, there are no sounds when I watch online or some movies on my pc.. and when I click the audio icon on taskbar, it states that there are no active audio mixers.. So I just go to services.msc and windows audio then start it, then everything's fine.. not until I restart my PC.. it is set to Automatic but it just stops on its own after every restart.. I thought of having a system restore but afraid of what might happen.

A:How do I get active directory?

Active Directory is not something you download - you join a domain with an account that has privileges to do so within the domain. Just change your machine location in Control Panel > System from Workgroup to Domain and enter the domain name. It should then prompt you for credentials.

I have an application that I want to use for long periods of time, but the internet connection needs to be up. Now, to save power I thought that I could put my computer in to sleep mode, but everytime it sleeps, it loses internet connection.

My question is: Can the internet connection stay active during sleep mode? And if so, how can I do that?

I have already tried unchecking 'Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power' option on my network adapter, but without results.

Any help is greatly appreciated, and I look forward to replies...


A:Active Internet connection during sleep mode?

No. If the computer is sleeping the internet connection can't be active (i.e. which would mean you also have a program running handling the connection, transfering data plus then you have memory in use and disk etc. so how much of your computer could really be asleep anyway

/* edit */
just fyi: the connection is allowed to be "awake" only to look for remote "wake up from sleep" type requests coming remotely. No other type of internet activity supported in sleep mode

You need to have the DNS localized to your systems, but it is not a FULL blown all encompassing system -- just the local SERVER addresses will be there.
You then configure it to perform and external referral to whatever full DNS you please.

Depending upon how the client systems are used, you can have them entered into your DNS when they login and removed with they logout.

A:Can't get GPO Editor to work with Active Directory

Hmm.. So what's with the subject? Can you actually create policies and suchlike?

For folder access you don't need policies. Filesystem access is set in the security tab of the folder properties. You can give and revoke access by users and groups no problem. (Or do you want to restrict this folder on a lot of computers at once?)

Before you can do anything with GPOs, you have to download and install the management utility: gpmc.msi Play around with it a little and see some guides about it on the net.

A step by step how to would be pointless because you would miss a lot of essential facts about group policies.

A:Wireless Connections drop when Wired computer active

You need to update the firmware of the Linksys wrt54G.

Make sure ALL wireless systems are accessing in the same mode,
either B or G, but don't allow a mix.

bit torrent access is always a problem -- the router starts to drown in traffic.
When it's only your wireless systems, you're limited by the wireless rates,
and the router gets a chance to 'come up for air'. When the desktop starts
bit torrents, it consumes as much of the router bandwidth as possible and ...
glub-glub, you need a lifegurard

There is no cheap means to control which systems get how much of the bandwidth!

One alternative would be to get a wireless adaptor for the desktop and let
everyone have their fair share of the pool.

Sometimes, it takes a reformat and reinstall to get things working. Others here will have solutions that will sometimes work temporarily. But the complete reformat and reinstall is the most reliable, we have found.
Do you use a USB printer - scan - fax - copier? We find that there is some sort of relationship with this problem you describe, and certain Epson, HP, and Lexmark multifunction printers and USB failures. In those cases, a total uninstall and removal from the registry, then reinstall from downloads seems to be a good fix. In others, the multi-function printer never works right again.

This bus. has 3 DC & DHCP servers located in three different locations. Because of a hardware failure and other reasons, one server was not communicating to the other 2 servers. So the AD information got out of sync between that server's AD and the other 2 servers. Now all three servers are communicating to each other, but the AD on that one server would not replicate to the other two. Worse yet, the AD on that one server contains the most current information, users wise.

I am thinking of demoting the two unaffected servers and pushing the AD from the the one server to the other two servers, then promoting them back up as peer servers. But before I do, I thought I'd some thoughts and feedback from oters. So any thoughts or opinions would be greatly appreciated. Thanksssssss.

Hi people. I recently installed W7 SP1 and am having trouble viewing/interacting with many websites. e.g. my banking website I use, when I left click on a icon that should fold down menu options it does nothing. On other websites /forums the 'post' button doesn't. On some I will copy some text and it wont paste etc... im thinking my active x controls are to blame as when I first visited many websites I declined the use of them on some?
After installing W7 I have downloaded/installed all MS updates, and the latest antiviris/malware, adobe reader, flash-player and java.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

A:Active X controls not working?

Have you tried to view the websites in which you have issues with "Compatibility Mode"?

IE instructions:
Go to Website in question.
Press Alt to bring up menu.
Go to Tools > Compatibility View Settings > press "Add" and close the dialog box.
Try to use the website again.

I have two Cyberpower PCs running Windows XP Home. The newest one's hard drive is constantly active (the yellow "active" light on the drive blinks every 1 - 2 seconds).

I have installed and ran Spybot Search-and-Destroy to eliminate tracking threats. Still the hard drive pulses away. The older Cyberpower acts normally. The hard drive shows activity when I would expect it.

Is there a utility that can tell me what application is generating all this hard drive activity?


A:Hard Drive constantly active

This is hardly something that can be called "constantly active" and it is quite normal with Windows XP. It can be any of the murky background tasks that run constantly. Most likely it is the indexing service building up its database. It should stop after all the updates have been made.

You shouldn't worry, this sort of activity doen't wear down your HD - it actually works only maybe about 0.1% of the time.

There's a message at the top about the website wanting to run Windows Media Player and to click on the "ActiveX Control". Is it okay to do that? What's strange is that Windows Media Player is enabled (I viewed my Add-ons to see if it is listed & it shows as being enabled & that it runs w/o requiring permission) and I have that icon in the lower left of my desktop. I don't know if I should click on the option "ActiveX Control." Any suggestions? The OS is Vista.

I am currently trying to download the latest version of Adobe Flash player from the Adobe site and just before the installation I get the below popup in IE7

"Internet Explorer blocked this site from using an activeX control in an unsafe manner"

I have tried the following:
Adjusted the security settings in IE7
Downloaded and installed a standalone version
Downloaded the latest XPP and IE updates

Can anyone think of anything else other than installing another web browser?

A:Internet Explorer 7 Active X control

I'm not really sure.. The only thing i can think of is you're not on the official Adobe site?
Click here and try Adobe Flash
Or here's a direct link to the download from the Adobe site

I also highly suggest you use a different browser to IE. Try Opera

Hope this helps

In my control panel, the Adobe Active X flash player 9 has a red cross on the top right corner of its icon in the program list in Control panel. I am having some problem with BSoD 0x000000050 lately so I am trying to rule out possibilities. Anyone know whether this red crossed flashplayer would cause a blue screen or no? or how to fix this? I reinstalled IE 7 and it appears the same. Much appreciated.

A:Problem with Adobe Active X player

Yes, it can, but likely not.
Remove and reinstall the Adobe file, using add and remove, then reboot to re-install. Adobe has an irritating (to me) install system, that allows the install to pause and restart, based on available resources. Install it while it has time, as it is a large file.

Try running Spybot Seach & Destroy (FREEWARE). YOu may find something tying up your CPU (trojan).

Also try SSI (System Spyware Interogator).
I have experienced lags in my shutdowns. One biggest lag is Spybot takes time to shut down.LOL How much memory do you have? Low memory, with many porgrams open causes lags in shutdowns. What is your Virtural Memory SET at.? Not having enough virtual memory can cause lagging in the system. Do you run a registry cleaner every other day? Try Eusing Free Registry Cleaner. Try Argente FREE Registry cleaner (BETTER). Try a Registry Defragger.. Perhaps your CPU is failing, cause it too hot? Perhaps your Memory is failing and losing values of stored data. Perhaps you have virus/trojan/spyware. Why do you use OUTLOOK. I only use it to send out, but never receive. People Hack it to easily, and it is a trojan/Virus bomb waiting to happen..

Before I got on the web the first time, I found windows delaying shutdowns. Increasing my virtual mem two to three times as much has improved my computer response. Some of The programs you are running, put a burden on the cpu, and if you are running virus software, antispyware, etc all at the same time, you will see delays in processes shutting down. I personally go into TaskManager and END processes.. Regardless, there are many things that can cause your Windows to run badly.. Or respond slowly. And one is shutting your computer off, or losing power and not having a normal shutdown, with the WRite Behind Cache set Enabled on your harddrive. I found out, after installing 50 programs on my computer and having the power cut off about 5 or 6 times, my computer was extremely slow.
After re-installing to a CLEAN setup, and changing my settings as mention, I now have over 50 programs installed, and run 10 windows open on the web with 128megs of ram, and find only a small lag, while running Sandboxie and ZA, with Spybot too, at times..
I also noticed the computer runs better before adding the UPdates up to SP2, and everyone is saying sp3 really screws up your computer.
I forgot to add one of the biggest things that may be the biggest problem with Windows XP, and the is, Windows itself...

I have just recently had my boot sector corrupted so I could not access my HDD, I have 2 500 GB HDD and had them in RAID 0

Active undelete has helped me piece back my RAID on the two HDD and has recovered most of the files I lost...however, it doesnt seem to recover .mkv, .avi files etc

I was wondering if anyone knew how to go around this or recommend a good data recovery software that could recover these types of files and support RAID 0.
I heard was good, however the RAID reconstructor requires you to copy whole HDD onto another drive and I do not have the resources to get another 2 500 GB HDD!

If anyone can help then Thank you!

I am using Office XP and for some reason Outlook just started to take control of my active window. In other words when I have Outlook open, and I am typing on AOL, or something else, Outlook just takes control and acts like it is the active window. So whatever I am typing gets cut off as it goes to Outlook. This is very annoying, as I can only get a few sentences, or letters sometimes in, if I am lucky! I have to shut down Outlook when I am not checking my email, and that is annoying. If anyone has any ideas please let me know. As I said this just started happening and I have been using it for a long time. Thanks.

Hello all hope you can help! I'll try to be concise.
I have a dell desktop (5120) I was running vista/xp dual boot. Xp was gettin old and clunky so clean installed with 7(home prem) for a change. Since decided to go back to vista/ vista as I like the way it runs on the PC.
So it now boots into the new installation of vista (primary) without the dual boot option. Seems to be because the old installation of vista is now a logical partition? I've tidied up the disk(7s system reserved partition was hanging around etc) so it's now just c (new) and d( old).
Is there any way I can dual boot these two ever again?
I also have a laptop vista/vista/xp and a PC 7/vista so I'm always messing, but this is the first time something this has happened to me.
Sorry for the rambling post.
TL/DR: partition gone logical. WWHHYYYY!!

I accidentally made another active partition on another hard drive. How do I deactivate that partition under windows (XP and Vista)?Thanks!

A:How to deactivate an active partition?

You can use the following steps to de-active a active partition:
1. Open Command Prompt.
2.  Type: diskpart
3.  At the DISKPART prompt, type:  list disk  (This command will list all the disks that you have)
4.  In the next prompt, type: select disk # ( # means the number of the disk which contain the wrong active partition )
5.  At the DISKPART prompt, type: list partition
6.  Use the command: select partition # (# means the number of the partition that you want to mark as active)
7.  Inactive the active partition with command: inactive
Important Note: We strongly recommend that perform a full backup before this procedure. 
By the way, there is a helpful article about disk management, for your reference:
Mark a partition as active (32-bit only)
It?s about active a partition. However, the inactive process is almost same.
I hope it helps.-----------------------------Sincerely,Guozhen WangMicrosoft Online Community Support

Unless I'm missing something, this is a touch screen which you use your finger to navigate rather than a mouse.  If you are more comfortable using a mouse you can use a usb type with the laptop.  I personally don't know anyone who uses a stylus on a laptop touch screen.
Just out of curiosity, where did you read that you needed to use a "pressure pen"?

I have tried once to do a system restore to a previous point, but it did not fix the issue. I have a lot of files that I still need on the computer, so that is an issue.

A:Laptop boots to black screen with active cursor and ctrl+alt+del function

What is the Make and Model of this laptop?
What other thing have you tried?

I have recently begun experiencing this problem after updating to Windows although I'm not sure that it's directly related to the update I see that similar questions have been asked on other forums but I see none for The best way to describe the problem Prompt (Windows Active Without Window/Program Switches User 8.1) Randomly is this while using a particular window such as a browser window or word processor window the window will randomly become inactive Sometimes it will switch back to being active automatically other times I have to manually click back into the window to use it again This is especially frustrating when trying to type or use drop-down menus As I type this question I am constantly clicking back into the browser window to keep it active The problem appears not to be specific to any particular program or internet browser but occurs for any window that I happen to be using I don't know if this is relevant but the activity of one particular background process appears to correlate with the timing of the problem The process HPConnectedRemoteService is continually appearing and disappearing from the Task Manager It appears increases gradually to about CPU then disappears Any given active window will become inactive when HPConnectedRemoteService reaches about CPU Again I do not know for sure if this process is involved with the problem though Attached are several screenshots of the processes running in case they can aid in solving this Would really appreciate any help This is incredibly Active Window/Program Switches Randomly Without User Prompt (Windows 8.1) annoying and counterproductive

I bought a HP Pavilion Sleekbook 15 which came with Windows 8. My problem is that in both Windows 8 and 8.1 when I have a program open, something is interrupting the program. The title at the top of the program dims showing it's not the active program for about half a second before resuming. It does this all the time and interferes when I try to type anything. I have not figured out what the problem is. I thought at first it was 8.1 so reverted to windows 8 and then reinstalled the entire system. It still happens. I cannot figure out what is causing the interference. Someone suggested it might be a compatibility issue with Windows 8 and 3rd party programs.

So I tried to install a 2TB hdd to my existing computer running a 120 GB SSD(windows install) and 500GB hdd.  When I connected the 2TB hdd to my computer it would not boot after and I got an error saying the  bootmgr is missing, press Ctrl Alt Del.  So I tried to remove the 2TB hdd and go back to the original drives and I still got the error bootmgr is missing error.  The only way I could get my computer to boot was to set the 100MB system reserved partition as active.  
Now, on boot up I now get an error saying that "Active partition not found! Press any key..."  Windows does continue to load after i hit any key but I'm not sure why im getting this error.
Does anyone know how to solve this problem?

A:Active partition not found

Your Partition Structure is kind of strange. The System Reserved partition is usally on the same disk as the Windows C:\ partition and set as Disk 0. The System Reserved Partition doesn't have a drive letter assigned either.
My guess is you have two BCD's. One in the System Restore Partition and One on another partition. You can use a Windows 7 System Restore Disk and Select Startup Repair.

There is a little risk in doing that. I suggest using free Partition Wizard Home for doing that.
Download Partition Wizard bootable ISO from the below link.
Burn it to a blank CD.
Reconnect the hard drive to your mom's PC. Now boot from the CD and use it to mark the correct partition as Active.

This is a common problem after a repair install for XP.You need to uninstall Internet explorer 7 and if installed IE8 too. Start with IE8 if installed, then uninstall IE7. This gives the method for IE7 you can adapt it to IE8 also.I would suggest to remove your IE7 completely with using following command on the START -> RUN%windir%\ie7\spuninst\spuninst.exeThis will uninstall IE7 and makes it so that you can reinstall it later. And this works for my PC with the same issue.Hope this helps The trick with IE8 is also the same find the spuninst\spuninst.exe in the /windows/ie8 directory and do it first. Once theyh are uninstalled IE6 should run and you can proceed from there.I have had to do this in the past and getting back to IE6 was the cure.Good LuckRoger

Hi,.my PC froze a few days ago and I got a message out of the blue something like "corrupted files, use chkdsk".
So I ran chkdsk and it seemed to do its work as the screen was filled with dozens of scrolling messages for 10 minutes such as "chkdsk replacing files" etc.
But since then my PC has been running very slow because the hard drive "working" light is on for long periods as if something is going on in the background, slowing everything up. For example the light has been on and the drive has been whirring away all the time I've been typing this post.

A:Malware Active On System?

Welcome to BC !
Would be a good idea to check using other programs since adware is so commonly found on computers and no one program finds and removes ALL adware and malware.
Use CCleaner to remove Temporary files, program caches, cookies, logs, etc. Use the Default settings. No need to use the
Registry Cleaning Tool...risky. Pay close attention while installing and UNcheck offers of toolbars....especially Google.
After install, open CCleaner and run by clicking on the Run Cleaner button in the bottom right corner.

Download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from Here
Double-click mbam-setup-2.X.X.XXXX.exe to install the application (X's are the current version number).
Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
Once MBAM opens, when it says Your databases are out of date, click the Fix Now button.
Click the Settings tab at the top, and then in the left column, select Detections and Protections, and if not already checked place a checkmark in the selection box for Scan for rootkits.
Click the Scan tab at the top of the program window, select Threat Scan and click the Scan Now button.
If you receive a message that updates are available, click the Update Now button (the update will be downloaded, installed, and the scan will start).
The scan may take some time to finish,so please be patient.
If potential threats are detected, ensure that Quarantine is selected as the Action for all the listed items, and click the Apply Actions button.
While still on the Scan tab, click the link for View detailed log, and in the window that opens click the Export button, select Text file (*.txt), and save the log to your Desktop.
The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can also be viewed by clicking the History tab and then selecting Application Logs.
Download AdwCleaner by Xplode onto your desktop.
Close all open programs and internet browsers.
Double click on adwcleaner.exe to run the tool.
Click on Scan button.
When the scan has finished click on Clean button.
Your computer will be rebooted automatically. A text file will open after the restart.
Please post the contents of that logfile with your next reply.
You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[S1].txt as well.

I've been having a problem ever since downloading and installing GorMedia Webcam Software Suite. It came with a bunch of malware including moviedea.exe and msnetcore.exe, which I've deleted along with the original Webcam Software.  I've removed all malware from the computer.
Ever since then, I've been having the following problems:
1) Open applications windows will randomly switch. For example, I may have two Firefox windows open. I will be typing something in Firefox and it will switch to the other Firefox window automatically. The window will also sometimes flash but remain in the same application rather than switching.
2) The applications list on my taskbar will randomly close and open. If I have a Firefox window up, the indicator on the taskbar will randomly close and then open back up by shrinking and then expanding back.
I am on Windows 7 64 bit desktop computer.  Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
