I don't even use Internet Explorer,I am currently using mozilla firefox as my browser, so in the hell do I get Internet Explorer pop-ups.Then when you try to close out of them the entire screen goes white and it won't let you close out the pop-up.Example: RUNDLL, everytime I log-on I get this message: Title Bar says RUNDLL then it reads: Error Loading C:WINDOWSsystem32atgban.dll. The specified module could not be found. What the hell does this mean?
My computer screen freezes up after a while, then turns into a blank light blue screen and then into a black screen. I have used regcure, PCMedkit, and PC Doc Pro I have also tried some of the online help for a fee but nothing seem to work. Lately when trying to reboot I got a blank red screen. I'm using xp pro and a Nvida GeForce 9400GT GRAPHICS CARD.
I got the win32/rootkit virus, tried to reinstall XP pro and had a tons of problems now when I try to install xp all it will see is 132GB of my 500GB drive. I have two 500MB drives and for whatever reason it will only see 132GB or either drive.WHat can I do to get XP to see the entire 500GB so I can reformat the HDD's and start all over from scratch? I've tried and tried and treid but I can't get XP to see the whold hard drive and now I'm at a complete loss as to what I can do next?Is there some kind of program I can download that will restore my hard drives to new condition with nothing on them so I can reinstall XP from scratch so it will see both hard drives and all 500GB of each drive?
I have removed a hard drive from a computer and replaced it with a new one and the old one is now in an external enclosure.My issue arrises when trying to view the files. I HAVE been able to get ownership of the files but only one folder at a time rather than the whole drive and its file structure, so I can get to the security tab in properties.
Need something to back up & restore the entire Windows Registry, with emphasis on ENTIRE.I have been using a utility called ERUNT to back up and restore the Windows 2000/XP registry; but, I dicovered today that it doesn't restore the entire registry.Is there a utility anywhere that will back up and restore the entire registry, preferable a free one but doesn't have to be free if it's cheap?
I need help with Xp freezing in normal mode.Problems I'm having Computer freezes at the welcome(choose profile) screen after 30-60 seconds.If I Immediatly login to my profile, the desktop boots up, but once again freezes.I think it runs for about a minute total before freezing either way.When it freezes the HDD light stops blinking and the scratchy HDD 'reading' sound ceases, but I can still hear it spinning this is constant, not hit and miss(since this began(last evening) I cant get xp to run in normal mode for more than a mintute before freezing)
I won't get past the Welcome Screen. I click on my Id and just says loading personal preferences. Right before that happened, I working on my comp. and just froze, so I turned it off and then when rebooting that happened. I have windows XP and haven't messed with the configuration settings, the only thing that I did notice was when I was changing my background picture, I guess that's when it froze. I have also tried starting it in safe mode, but the same thing, just freezes when in the welcome screen.
I got an AMD Sempron 2600 and a k7Triton Motherboard for Christmas and put them in my computer. After that my computer barely ever would boot up. If it didnt boot up my loading bar on the windows XP screen would freeze (the blue one) although it didnt freeze it actually would move very very slowly but windows would never load. If windows did boot from me choosing last knwn config(only one I tried) then it would boot flawlessly. But know the real problem.... I came home from school and had not turned my comp off in 2 days (hibernating) and my computer seemed to be slow i pressed ctrl+alt+del and my CPU Usage said 100%! even tho I was barely runing anything so i turned off my computer(not hibernate)
when I try to boot up my computer it just stops at the Windows welcome screen where it says 'Windows is starting up...'. The problem is Windows doesn't start up. I've managed to log on however, by going into safe mode and changing the way I log on by switching to the more classic method, but this is not the real answer I want
All of a sudden the other day my OS (Win XP Pro, SP II) froze shortly after bootup. I was able get on Firefox but the mouse froze on the XP screen when running any HD application. Ctrl-Alt-Delete didn't free up the mouse, and doing it twice got no response.Earlier, I couldn't find any conflicts on the Device Manager.I changed my mouse connection from USB to Serial, but that made no difference...This AM, Windows booted up OK, but the screen froze right after a few tray & desktop icons had loaded. Ctrl-Alt-Delete still didn't function for a shutdown...Strangely, the Num-Lock light and the mouse underside red beam stayed on after shutdown.
The past three days I have been seeing a blue box saying, Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. Yesterday I came home and checked my e-mail which worked fine. After that I tried to log on to Google and the box came up again.The next thing I know the screen turns a bright blue and freezes up. I call Dell and the tech asks me a few questions and takes me to the boot up screen, and then the self diagnostic screen. When the test was over it said Maxtor (product number) failure.
I want to take an Image of the entire Hard Disk and make a CD of it. When this CD is put on a brand new computer, it should, without human intervention recreate the same Hard Disk info including partitions, OS, and any software that was installed such as, Antivirus, Databases, programming environments( C, Turbo C++, .NET , Java etc.). Now, I know that there are softwares that help in taking such an Image of the Hard Disk. What I want is info on
1. which one is best? 2. whether it is available for free?(doesn't matter whether it is a trial version.) 3. if I download it from the net will it work?
I am using Windows XP Home SP3.I have just bought a new 250gb external Hard disk and would like to back up my entire personal computer in case of any viruses or Hard Disk problems.I have heard of Acronis but it's 39.99 is there a any free software out there?
I have been searching for cure for my sister's laptop. It is a Presario 2500, with 512 mb of ram. I recently restored the operating system (3-4 weeks ago) because of a virus she got. She said she shut down her computer yesterday using start>turn off computer>restart. When the computer went to restart, it freezes completely on the blue "windows is starting" screen immediately before the login screen. The computer was restarted again and froze at the same screen. I tried to have her start in safe-mode and last-known configuration to no avail.
I had a similar problem not too long ago where my PC would not load and I had to re-install windows. But now, If I try to press F8 it just ignores it and carrys on into loading windows normally, which causes the PC to freeze. This also happens when I try and boot from my windows setup disk. I have checked all the lights on my keyboard and they are all on and working whenever I press Caps Lock etc.As for Viruses etc. I had not downloaded anything new onto the PC since this last hapened and I have been running regular Anti-Virus scans every 2-3 days.
I started getting BSOD when powering on. So I put in my XP disk and used Startup / Repair. It completed more or less successfully. However, when I boot up I get the Windows XP Home loading screen, the 3 green dots pass by 3-5 times, then freeze. I can get in via Safe Mode, and my apps seem to run OK.
This only happens when my brother plays video games on his computer. Comprehensive virus and spyware scans have found nothing. The following games crash, due to the diversity of the games we think it is something to do with Graphics.Oblivion, Everquest 2, Call of Duty 2, Morrow Wind, Age of Empires 3, Anarchy Online, World of Warcraft, Ultima Online. Vanguard, Battlefield 1942.Whether he is playing hours or seconds he gets this problem. The time it takes to crash is not dependent on the level of graphics the game has
The problem is the screen will all of a sudden pixelate into a whole bunch of blocks and the computer will just freeze. I wish I could take a screenshot of what it looks like, but, obviously I can't. I'm not sure why this problem would be occuring. It's only started doing it recently. It doesn't seem to occur while I'm doing a specific activity either. In fact, a lot of the times I'll be coming back to the computer, after leaving it idle, and the screen will look like this, and I'm forced to just pull the power and reboot.
I need to reformat the entire computer. It's an old laptop that was used for business and therefore has all of these programs on it that I do not want anymore. Things like asking for a username and password at startup. I know you guys may say "boot from the XP CD" but will this erase EVERYTHING? By the way, I do want to erase everything.
I had a duel boot system running Windows 2000 and linux, I decided to get rid of linux for a while but stupid me just went in to fdisk and deleted the linux partition. Now my 80 gig hard drive only shows as 40 and I can't think of anyway to get it back without reformatting the entire hard drive
I have a pentium 3 933 mhz with a 40 gb hd. the hd had a 50/50 partition and i wanted to reformat the entire disk then make my own partitions and then re-install xp. what i did:
1. i used a program called killdisk to wipe out the hd 2. used win98 fdisk to set partitions 3. plugged the hd in my other comp as a slave and used a pirate copy of xp pro to install on the drive
The hd wont load on my computer after setting it back to master drive with xp pro on it, all it says is 'verifying dmi pool data" my other comp asks me what OS to boot with every time, even though only one is present.
I have recently fallen victim to a nasty virus which tried to destroy my entire operating system. It kept sending me pop ups via IE and I guess I downloaded it off a facebook video to which it attached itself.kaboob or something. Anyway, I survived but haven't been able to restore my desktop function ability. First it said'restore my active desktop' but I couldn't. Finally I managed to restore about one eighth of my picture but can't get any further. The rest of my screen is white and that's where it stands now.
After stupidly (unknowiingly) downloading the new Chode virus I have had to format my HDD.I need to know is there any freeware available to allow mw to do this effectively.? I am a memeber of the latterday church of freeloaders, so it needs to be free
downloading and installing update to my computer from windows update. Every time I try to enter the pages, the screen freezes on me. I even restored my computer and still it happens, only with microsoft - windows sites. Now Once I did get to the point to check for updates, but after doing the express check, all downloaded but could not install. Was getting this message: Files that are required for Windows to run properly must be copied to the DLL Cache.
Its a Laptop - C2D T5780,2GB RAM, 320GB HDD Windows XP SP2 Avira Antivirus says everything is fine, so its not viruses.The problem is that windows xp hangs after booting up to the welcome screen where i select the user and key in the password.It happens fairly regularly, like once every 5-6 times i boot up the system. By hang i mean that it doesn't take keyboard input, i can move the mouse cursor around but clicks don't have any effect. The HDD activity LED keeps blinking fairly regularly. Like every 5 seconds.I end up having to do a hard reboot.
I have an IBM Thinkpad Z51 that I got through school.It has worked fine until now but now whenever I boot the laptop,it freezes at the password entry screen. I can boot in safemode no problem, but as soon as I enter the first letter of my password in normal mode, the computer freezes. Sometimes, after pressing F8 and using the last known good configurations like 8 times I can finally enter my password
