Preferred Solution: AVAST 2015 R4 Beta 5 & 6 (2015.10.4.2230 & 2231)

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:AMD is working on Catalyst beta drivers for 'The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt' and 'Project Cars'

"AMD graphics card owners that have tried playing The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt or Project Cars are likely already aware of the fact that both titles run like crap on Radeon hardware."

At the risk of pointing out the obvious, "runs like crap" doesn't strike me as professional an expression as "runs terribly" or "are both exceptionally poor performers on..." It may convey the sentiments of the accompanying article comments, but those are supposed to be crude.

tnx
 

A:GTX 560 Ti for 2013-2015

Neither, they're all older generation cards. Since you're not in a rush wait for nvidia to release their GTX 650/660 and either go for one of those or a 7850. They'll easily max games at your resolution.

Hello all, hope you had a good Xmas, and looking forward to the New Year.

I'm wondering here whether any hardware people do beta testing in public.
I have done some beta testing on software, but never hardware.
Does Intel, Asus, NVidia, BFG, ATI/AMD, or any of the big guys have a public beta on their latest products?

If so, how do I get a shot to get into the program?

?? Frank
 

A:Beta testing hardware?

First, a resume to show you know what you are doing, and that you have the qualifications and experience. That is a big hurdle to get by.
Then you can contact them with a full technical description, along with what sorts of testing are needed.
Most folks designing something have the connections already, as rarely does anything just pop up as a good idea.
You can do the test yourself, to the extent of your limits, and write it up for publication online on in one of the appropriate technical journals, or "Amateur" publications.

A:NO Sound ON VISTA BETA 2

If you know who makes your sound card, you can go to the maker's website and download the drivers.

Keep in mind that vista is only a beta version, and it should be expected that there are still a lot of unsupported devices out there.

Anyone installing it should really be doing it as a second OS (dual boot OS system) to be safe at this point.

A:Asus Beta BIOS mya fix SATA data corruption

Yes, the BIOS fix from Asus does correct SATA data corruption. The BIOS is no longer beta and is a final release. The fix is incorporated into BIOS 1004 for rev 1.x boards and C1005 for Rev 2 boards.

For those using the patched and crippled SATA .281 drivers you'll need to roll back to .22 drivers or you can get the newer .28 drivers from Silicon Image The .281 drivers will not uninstall from within Windows, you'll need to boot into safe mode to update the drivers or they will not update.

Now I have a sweet 100 MB/s write speed and 112 MB/s read speed in Atto and 67.7 MB/s in Sandra (Sequential Read = 105 MB/s and Sequential Write= 91 MB/s). I tested for data corruption by doing things that I know caused errors 100% of the time before the fix and had no problems.

After installing DirectX 9 Final over DirectX 9 Beta I have several 'Beta Retail' version files left over which DirectX advises are 'unsupported and could cause problems' and to 'reinstall DirectX to get the latest version'. Well I downloaded DirectX 9 Final again and reinstalled it but the same Beta files remain. Should this be a concern? Do I need to uninstall DirectX 9 before reinstalling it? If so where can I find a DirectX uninstall utility? Thanks

Hey guys check this out(a quote from www.ign.com):

Seing as their final releases aren't always stable ( DirectX 8.0a anyone ), I think I won't be jumping on that train anytime soon. Once games require it to run, we'll have no choice, bus as for now DX 8.1 works fine.

Since it's running and trying to do its job leave it be. It might be frozen at this time but it could all of a sudden just take over and complete its job. However, If it continues to take forever to do what it's trying to, post from another computer. Seeing as how you have a nasty infection, you'll probably need help from one of the BC experts on the best advice to follow. Being optimistic as I usually am, once the rootkit is quarantined or even removed, post back for follow up procedures to ensure the computer is in fact good and clean.

A:Downloading the Diablo III open beta resulting in BSODs

ALCWDM64.SYS is a Realtek audio driver, not a video driver. So you can start by investigating a sound driver issue

Anyone testing the microsoft Beta's? Whats your opinion on them? Im using office 2007 and IE7, and am pleasently suprised. Waiting for a copy of vista in the mail.
 

A:Microsoft Beta's

Im using Office 2007, only problem with that is Access, it doesn't let me open tables in Design View, it crashes and CPU usage goes to 100%. Its not an isolated issue either, a lot of other people are having the same problem.

I've signed up for WLM 8.1 beta testing, still not reply yet . I'm also using WMP11 Beta 2, Live Mail, Windows Defender.

Not really bothered with IE7, since I have my friend Firefox working well
I used Vista once, the first public release, but I wasn't too impressed with it, especially UAC. I'm not planning on using it until the proper retail version is out.

Apparently its a feature (according to http://tinyurl.com/ys2qcd)

Spellcheck in msn would be great for me!

Ive installed it fine but just cant find the feature within the program. Anyone give me some pointers?

Thx
 

A:Spell check in MSN Beta 8.5

try pressing F7 when you've typed into the message box, that's the button microsoft usually use for spell checking.

Hello! Im Downloading Widows Vista beta but im not sure if its a good option.
I've heard that they only give you 1 month to test it, but i got one serial when i was going to download it cause im a candidate or something, That means i wont have the 30 day test thing?
Also wanted to ask how good its to play games or if its even compatible with Direct X 9, ZoneAlarm and Avast!.

Thanks a lot!

It's not a good option if you intend to do anything except try it out. Do not use it as a main OS.

A:Vista beta testing. Is anyone doing it?

Do it! Vista is awesome! I got mine of bittorrent. They put so many new good features into the shell. And don't get a new system. Just partition your hard drive. Its gay though because it wont work in 14 days unless i register it.

Going back to this thread http://www.techspot.com/community/topics/friends-vista-dell-laptop-wont-go-online.213397/ I decided to update it & run full scans to clean it up but once again Avast showed the one 1 shield not on crap so since I don't have the time to set it back to factory specs I updated MSE & will hope that works. Any ideas why Avast does that?? TIA
 

A:Vista doesn't like Avast?

Avast showed the one 1 shield not on crapClick to expand...

HUH? Be specific.
Personally, I disable the File System Shield:

heavy resource usage
major performance impact
I use Avast for its proactive features (email & link scanning) to keep the bad guys out.
I do manually scan every download prior to using or installing. That should cover 99.99% of the risk and I can use the GROSS assumption that "once it's good, it should stay that way" (told you it was gross)
Just my $0.02

Either the modem needs to be reset or you do not have a DNS server.
Any other PC's connect? how?

Can you run (WIN+R)
cmd
ipconfig /all
and see what your DNS setting is?
These can be added if you like using manual settings.

Fresh install of Windows 8, and after uninstall and reinstall of Google chrome, it keeps bringing this up:

108.59.10.141/cen?ag which is blocked or something.

avast! | Security Center

Which shows it as Malware. It pops up even when Google chrome is shut down, but it does not shut down in running processes where 4-5 instances of it run, you shut them down and they keep reappearing, in order to uninstall Chrome I had to shut them all down quick and hit the uninstall otherwise it would not uninstall due to instances of it running.

I dont know what this is and where its coming from, even with no extensions or addons it will pop up multiple times and sometimes just once, very sporadic and I dont know whats causing it. It never did it before on Windows 7. Various scans with Malware Bytes and Avast bring no results of virus, trojans, or malware.

I run both Windows Defender and Avast Free Anti Virus but I am wondering if I really need both of them running at the same time. Can I safely remove Windows Defender and rely on Avast Free to do the same job?

A:Windows Defender v Avast Free Anti virus

No you shouldn't run two AVs at the same time, it's asking for trouble. I'm surprised Defender didn't turn off automatically when Avast was installed. But yes, uninstall one. Just make sure it's Avast you uninstall and keep Defender, Avast is well known for causing BSODs whereas Defender doesn't.

Avast does NOT show on windows Programs and Features. Therefore I can not uninstall it from there. I have Revo Uninstaller but it also does not show up there.

Q: AVAST

Hi to all,

I have used Avast AV for many years. I recently had to restore my system back a few months. Now, when I update CCleaner, AV blocks this as a threat? I have re-installed Avast but the same thing happens.

Any ideas, please?
Kindest Regards
Morny
 

A:AVAST

Hi Morny,

Have you made sure Avast is fully updated after re-installing?

Also, does it block the update of CCleaner as a threat or launching the program?

Lastly, do you believe your system is infected with malware? If not, I will request that this thread be moved to General Security.

I had Avast Internet Security for about 3 years. Recently, I had a computer problem and took my computer to Best Buy's Geek Squad. They installed Webroot, and uninstalled Avast. I am glad they did. Avast had automatically renewed my subscription last year and the year before, and altlhough I e-mailed them several times, I couldn't reach them to tell them that I did not want the installation. I don't want Avast anymore, but am afraid that, in the fall of this year when my present subscription expires (although the program is no longer on my computer), they will reinstall avast and automatically charge my credit card again. I need to be able to talk to someone who will assure me that this will not happen. Does anyone know how I can accomplish this and be done with Avast?

Many, many thanks for your help!

Can anyone recommend or give some advice as to what they regard as the best free anti-virus please in 2015?

I've had Avast (Free) on my laptop for around two years now but I feel my pc might be infected and its not getting picked-up by Avast. I also have the Free version of Malwarebytes and its picks up the odd thing.

The reason for my suspecting something is up is my pc slows down after being used for a few hours. it gets slower and starts to freeze so I have to restart it and this seems to solve the problem. Is the slowing down due to a virus????
 

A:Solved: Best Free Anti-virus 2015?

Slowing down may be caused by a virus. but most times it is because you have too many programs that start up upon login. Go start 'msconfig' and see the startup tab. Uncheck everything except your antivirus and firewall. See if speed improves.

I use Avira Free.( http://www.avira.com/en/avira-free-antivirus) According to Virus Bulletin,( https://www.virusbtn.com/vb100/latest_comparative/index ) it has pretty good detection.

Hi,

I am trying to make an image using acronis live cd on my asus x550za notebook. When I get to 'partitions to back up' I select disk 2 but I can not put a CHECK next to it with my mouse because I am unable to use it. I can use arrows up and down and side to side but I still can not put a CHECK next to it and then select NEXT that I know of.

Is there a way I can accomplish this?

thx
 

A:Acronis true image live cd 2015

I'm not sure if this will work with Acronis, but you could try the Windows methods of navigating without a mouse.

You can use the Tab key to go from field to field. When you get to a check box hit the space bar to put a check in the box.

You can also use the Alt key to perform different functions.

A:Avast......

There are several annoying avast! pop-ups and notifications which can be disabled.How to Disable Avast's Annoying Sounds and PopupsHow to Disable (Turn Off) avast! Pop-up Notificationsavast! includes several features (Browser protection, Software Updater, Remote Assistance, SecureLine, Rescue Disk, etc) which you may not want or need.If avast is already installed, to permanently disable features...follow these instructions:1. Go to Control Panel > Programs and Features > select avast > Change/Remove.2. On the avast! installation set up screen choose the option to Change and click Next.3. On the Configuration screen, under Components, uncheck any features you don't want and click Next.4. After the change is made you should receive an Update finished page.5. Check the option to restart and click the Finish button at the bottom.Keep in mind that an offer of free anti-virus software is essentially a marketing technique...a way of advertising and enticement to get folks to try a product and if they like it, to purchase the full (or Pro) version which typically provides more features. Marketing and promotional strategies are built into the vendor's business model as part of their operating costs. Bottom line...it's all about generating revenue and finding new and creative ways to do so. As such, users may have to deal with occasional nagging pop-ups or nuisance advertising and prompts to upgrade to the paid version.By using such free programs, you are essentially agreeing to the terms of the vendor's service which includes those ads. In some cases you may be able to disable annoying pop-ups through the anti-virus settings if the vendor included an option to disable them. If the vendor does not have such an option listed, then your only alternative is to switch anti-virus software if the pop-up ads annoy you that much.Also keep in mind that many anti-virus vendors are bundling toolbars and other software with their products as a cost recoup measure. In fact, all free Anti-virus programs now come with toolbars or other bundled software except Bitdefender Free.Beware: Free Antivirus Isn’t Really Free AnymoreHas the antivirus industry gone mad?!

Hi gdnr This is indeed a false positive from avast!. This vendor has been known to targets many downloads hosted on BleepingComputer as false positives. Every single tools and programs hosted in the Downloads section of BleepingComputer are completely safe to use. The fault here is on the vendor's side, not BleepingComputer. What you can do is temporarily disable avast! to download and execute FRST, then re-enable it once it's done. Or you can disable avast!, download FRST, add it avast! exclusion list and then re-enable it. This should allow you to use it without avast! interfering.http://www.getavast.net/support/managing-exceptions

Suddenly today my Avast firewall stopped.  I called them, they remoted in, and said they could not help me going through a lot of mumbo jumbo about how it was my fault that their product did not work.  They said I had several virus protection softwares on my system.  If that is the case, I did not load them.  I have WinPatrol which should have alerted me to the fact that a program I did not load myself was being loaded.  That did not occur.  Please assist me in getting my firewall back up -- whether that is Avast or Windows.  Thank you.
 
Update:  Now, for some reason, my Windows firewall (which had been disabled) is now working.  This is all very confusing.  Thank you.

A:Avast firewall will not start

Using more than one software firewall on a single computer is not advisable. Why? Using two firewalls could cause issues with connectivity to the Internet or other unexpected behavior. Further, running multiple software firewalls can cause conflicts that are hard to identify and troubleshoot. Only one of the firewalls can receive the packets over the network and process them. Sometimes you may even have a conflict that causes neither firewall to protect your connection. However, you can use a hardware-based firewall (a router) and a software firewall (i.e. Kerio, ZoneAlarm, Comodo, etc) in conjunction.

Note: In many cases the 3rd-party firewall or an Internet Security Suite will automatically turn off Windows built-in firewall in order to manage things but that does not always work as intended.
I prefer to just use Windows Firewall. See Choosing a Firewall

So I was just looking at that settings on Kaspersky Total Security 2015 and stumbled upon this..Block and warn about insecure transmission of passwords over the Internet.
With this option enabled, Kaspersky Internet Security will block an attempt to send a password within a none secure public or home Wi-Fi network.Does anyone use this feature or know about it? It's off by default..I mainly use my laptop at home but sometimes use public Wi-Fi such as cafes, hotels etc. or round other people's houses.. Is it really necessary? Or will it just limit me?

A:Firewall settings on Kaspersky Total Security 2015......

Hi Star It's a good thing to have it enabled by default if you asks me, since it could prevent your passwords from being sent over a network that have been compromised if a MiTM (Man in the Middle) attack have been setup. I suggest you to leave it enabled and if you have issues browing the web on your own network(s), then you can disable it and see if it works or add these networks as exceptions under Networks. Kaspersky posted a small article on their blog about Kaspersky Internet Security WiFi features, here:http://usblog.kaspersky.com/tip-stay-safe-wifi/Also, a review on 7Tutorials.com suggests you to enable that feature (at the end of it):http://www.7tutorials.com/security-everyone-reviewing-kaspersky-internet-security-2015

For the past few months I've noticed that my internet browsing is noticeable slower - sometimes in Firefox it takes 15 minutes to download a 10 MB file! - and at times my program-loading speed is much slower as well. This more or less correlates with when I accidentally allowed my free Comodo Firewall to update itself to a more robust version which contains antivirus scanning, sandbox, etc. as well as some PUP bundles. However, I already have Avast antivirus running with file system / web shields, "DeepScreen", "Home Network Security", etc., though the free version doesn't have sandbox capabilities.
Now that the newer Comodo is acting more antivirus-y, could it and Avast be clashing with each other and possibly be contributing to slower browsing? If so, do I have to uninstall one of them and switch to a different combination of firewall + AV, or is there something I can do with settings?

A:Does updated Comodo clash with Avast AV?

Hi shinra
It looks like you allowed COMODO Firewall to install COMODO Antivirus when it was updating itself. Having more than one Antivirus installed at the time on a system can cause system conflict and instability. You should only have one Antivirus product installed at all time on a system. You can supplement it with Antimalware since they are made to run alongside Antivirus, but not another Antivirus product. I suggest you to go in your list of installed programs, uninstall every COMODO programs and then re-download COMODO Firewall and reinstall it. If you think that COMODO Firewall is annoying or creates conflicts with avast!, you can always use the Windows Firewall, in-built, which is good enough to fit your network protection needs, assuming that you are running Windows 7 or more recent. Let me know how it goes

Recently I got my computer fixed. But I can't get into itunes store. At first it wouldn't connect me at all--then I changed the proxy. Now when I get into the itunes store there aren't any images.

I've had Comodo firewall and Avast AV for awhile now with no issues.  I just renewed my Avast AV Free and it upgraded/ updated the program.  Since then, I constantly have popups from Comodo Defense+ anytime I'm on the internet because Avast is running and its wanting me to "Allow this request".  I've googled how to make Avast a trusted program in Comodo, but all the instructions are very hard for me to understand.  Can someone explain how to get the Defense+ to recognize the new Avast program and not have the constant popups asking me to allow the program to do what its supposed to do automatically?

I have just successfully cleaned my laptop of malware, with help from this forum, and installed Online Armour as advised.  However I experienced some problems so decided to uninstall it for now.  Now Avast and Windows Defender won't start.  I have tried to manually start Avast but it shows all protection as disabled and clicking on start now does nothing.  
 
When I check msconfig it is showing as disabled and when I check it again it just unchecks itself!  I have tried system restore, but multiple restore points have failed.
 
Any help would be much appreciated!

Most concerns you may have heard or read about the Windows Firewall were in the XP operating system so many users were advised to use third-party alternatives. Microsoft significantly improved the firewall to address these concerns in Vista and then added more improvements in Windows 7/8. See Choosing a Firewall.

Have attempted several times this evening to download CCleaner from the Piriform website. Something I've done hundreds of times with never a problem. Something seems amiss though as my Avast Anti-Virus program has taken a sudden dislike to the download. It has completely blocked it. The attachment shows the contents of the Virus Vault with the files blocked showing. Has the website been compromised? False positives? Other files from the website download with no problems.

Just tried downloading from other trusted website with same results. Also had Avast rescan the above files in the vault & Avast reports everything clean. ???  Haven't changed any settings or other in Avast. May try reinstalling Avast & see if problem repeats.

Hello,
Is anyone else experiencing this?  Clients, specifically on the West Coast, are experiencing BSOD in reference to "display driver" when they browse to Amazon.com.
Windows7 64 bit
IE 11 32 bit

A:8/2015, clients experiencing BSOD browsing Amazon.com - a thread from May is unanswered

The problem has been tricky to track down, but I finally got my hands on an affected machine and noted the file causing the BSOD (atikmpag.sys). This led me to confirm what others believed
was the issue; the ATI video driver. If the machine is a 990 model - then download the AMD-Catalyst-15.7.1-Without-DOTnet45-Win7-64bit for those running Win7 64 bit.
For any other models, go to the AMD site and download
the necessary drivers: http://support.amd.com/en-us/download.
More than likely it was a combo failure between either the newest Flash update, a MSFT update, and then the video driver no longer being compatible at this point.

Windows 10 Beta.... was released in October 2014....10 months ago....(approx 300 days).and has presumably been rigorously tested and put through all sorts of high pressure situations in that time.
 
Windows 10 release to the general public occurred on 29th July 2015. It has been out there...11 days....and already we have a "service release 1"...... “Windows 10 SR1 is a cumulative update package. It will bring some new features, but the main purpose is to repair the system after release and fix the problems exposed.”
 
Microsoft: We have more than 1.5 million Windows 10 'Insiders' ....so what happened to all that testing ??

It has been repeatedly stated to run a Beta OS, such as Windows 10 currently in the following ways:
VM
VHD
Spare Box
Dual-boot
 
It requires a physically separate drive be available but, this is, also, a method...
Example PC:
Running Windows 8.1
Unplug, disconnect the drive holding Windows 8.1
Install Windows 10 to the other drive.
Once done reconnect all drives.
You shut down & F12 to pick the drive you will boot, either 8.1 or 10.
This is not the same as dual-boot. They are distinct.  They are each booting themselves separately; not sharing a boot ini.
 
Easy, safe and creates a very 'normal' set-up.  Much better than a VM & even better than dual-boot.  You can 'see' all drives from both OSs this way and all USBs or peripheral gear from both.
Cheers,Drew

I've been sitting here for two days crying by this stupid computer which I want to deep six, but the ground is still frozen! Problems, I cannot open any app, program, command, except for Google search. My virus protection comes from Avast Free, that isn't working at all either. Error code 0xc0150004 keeps coming up for EVERYTHING I click on. Even when I try to determine what the problem is, this stupid code keeps coming up. I'm in no way an advanced computer user and don't understand the "terms" nor the "abbr" and I know nothing about hardware. I'm ill w/severe migraine, going through a messy divorce, and my father is dying - I can't think straight about anything, but need this computer because some of the files I need for the divorce are on this unit.
