Safe mode?

Looks like you have a virus/trojan/worm infection pretty good...

Actually, even if you get executables run again - you can be (read as "will be") better off the coast of a new facility.  Wipe and install media with your product key and other serial numbers and installation for other products media you own and restore your last recognized reliable backup for your files.

    Hi FriendFriend,

    1. did you of recent changes on the computer?

    2. do you have security software installed on the computer?

    3. you receive an error message when running the system restore?

    I suggest that you put the computer in a clean boot state, and then try to clean boot.

    It is possible that some third-party programs installed on the computer is causing the problem.

    To help resolve the error and other messages, you can start Windows XP by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This type of boot is known as a "clean boot". A clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.

    See the link below to learn more about how to clean boot.

Hello 4 keep screwing browsers and now I get connection network problems. I run Comcast doctor and did everything it said to do, but nothing works. Oh and I added 7-Zip and WinZip also.

    keimanzero,

    Comcast of Norton Security Suite version is installed? If Yes, who and perhaps malware is most likely to cause questions you have published, in particular the failure of the restoration of the system.
    First, configure the system to boot - How to solve a problem by performing a boot in Windows Vista or in Windows 7
    NOTE: Start-up mode minimum state all the 3rd party firewalls will be disabled. Open Control Panel > Windows Firewall to make sure that the native firewall of Windows 7 is now on.

    Download and Save the update system (or CheckSUR) tool. You will need to download the specific Version of CheckSUR corresponding to the architecture of the system to Windows 7. If you do not know the architecture of the system, and then click the link that says "Click here to show or hide the instructions step by step with images" under method 2: download the update directly system preparation tool from Microsoft Download Center .
    Description of the preparation tool system update for Windows Vista for Windows Server 2008, for Windows 7 and for Windows Server 2008 R2

    Once the download is complete, close all open programs and browsers. Now, run CheckSUR with the system connected to the internet because it will download the .cab for system files. Reboot once CheckSUR is complete.

    Secondly, I suggest that you run the File Checker system while in the same clean boot state.
    To run the System File Checker tool, follow these steps:

    1. Click Start and type cmd in the field search programs and files .
    2. Right click on cmd.exe in the programs of list, and then choose 'run as administrator '.
      If you are prompted for an administrator password or a confirmation, type your password or click on continue.
    3. At the command prompt, enter the following line exactly as written including the space between thec and the/and then press ENTER:
      sfc/scannow

    When the analysis is complete, test to see if the problems facing the system have been resolved.

    If they are not, you will need to contact Norton support for the version of Norton Internet Security Comcast to get help, or just uninstall NIS, run the Norton removal tool (right click Norton_Removal_Tool.exe, choose "Run as Administrator"), reboot and then check to see if the problems are still occurring.

    ========

    It's probably the pilots who are responsible and who may not really be later or they need to be
    re-installed anyway. The best way is to manually review using the methods below.

    References to Vista also apply to Windows 7.

    Control Panel - device - SOUNDS - look for HD Audio Manager - Mine said RealTek High
    Audio definition (this is an example and you can have an other name/maker).

    Write the description and the model double click on it - tab drivers - write down
    Version. Now click on update drivers who cannot do anything as MS is far behind certifying
    drivers. Then CLICK RIGHT on it and UNINSTALL - REBOOT - this will rebuild the driver
    stack.

    You can have the default windows or a former certified pilot and it's all or part of the
    issue.

    Now, go to the site of the manufacturer of the system and get the latest Audio/Sound drivers - download - SAVE - go to
    where you put - right-click on Reboot - RUN AS ADMIN-

    Check the Version tab of the driver in the Device Manager as the restoration of the sound card drivers often
    and then install the latest version. Restart and check after each test, not
    rare to have to run the pilot of 1 to 4 times or more. Just the version make sure you
    installed shows upward on the tab of the driver.

    Go to the site of the manufacturer of the device, and then search for the even more recent drivers and install repeat
    operating mode. Download - SAVE - go to where you put them - click on - RUN AS
    ADMIN - Reboot

    Look at the sites of the manufacturer for drivers - and the manufacturer of the device manually.
    http://pcsupport.about.com/od/driverssupport/HT/driverdlmfgr.htm

    ---------------------------------------------------------

    After the updated driver.

    Click with the right button on the speaker near clock - recorders - right click in the box - check see the
    Disconnected devices and show disabled devices - check your micro - highlight
    then on lower right properties. Make sure that the appropriate injector is selected and check
    other parameters - levels tab make sure that MUTE is disabled and APPLY / OK to change
    .

    Also in the search for some Audio Manager Panel (perhaps named after the manufacturer of the sound driver). Mine
    is the RealTek Audio Manager, yours can be quite different name if you have one.
