  • There are no property in UPnP device M1000 in my network places?

    I have a name M1000 sometimes classified in bookmarks network Upnp device.  Because XP sees this device, he notified me the first time when he installed it.  I have a Qwest dsl, M1000 model, with firewall settings modem, set the setting 'high' by default.  Is this the same device?

    Open my network places shows a network icon (part of the time.)  When I right click on this generic icon, select Properties, Windows will tell me that this device does not exist on my network, and no properties are also available.   Invocation (whatever it is) does not work either.  Close and then reopen it will lead to a non-compliant behavior.  Never the window reappears.

    When this is done, restarting the computer will always cause explorer.exe suspended and restart will hang unless I force close using the box leave the program explore.

    Why is this happening?

    Other than this issue, XP works fine.

    Bill Sanderson,

    Thank you for your response.  I don't think it was supposed to be here, either.  Since I wrote, there has been no other incidents with the computer hooked to restart.  Maybe install Windows Defender helped?  I also use Sandboxie in most browsing situations.

    Hi Rosenlove,

    If the (SFC Scan) System File Checker has found errors and inviting to insert the Windows vista disc, you will need to insert the Windows Vista disc to fix running.

    However, since you do not have the disk and the computer are pre-installed with Windows Vista and since it a new computer, I would suggest contact you HP support and see if they can help you with this question and shipout Windows Vista disc.

    I can't update "windows" or "windows defender". Followed the steps described by Microsoft help, tried to download manually, have asked Microsoft to help (no response yet) these first two things didn't work. I even had something like; change setting.that message security came for "Windows update", I have change the security setting, did not just well, still nothing.
    Windows Defender gives me an error code that looks like this;
    Error Code 0 x 80070005
    That's all I can get, and it will not update.
    and on top of it, I've lost my "Microsoft Help and support (it) when I click Start and click Help and support, I get a (?) all help options or when I click on it nothing there is totally 'empty '.
    I have one more problem.
    I tried to defrag my computer, and I can't do it either. I get a grey screen and if I click on anylise or defragment, it does nothing, no error message or anything else. Tried to manually defragment Traore does not work, tried to load a defrag on the web program, wouldn't let me load it.
    Nobody knows what happens here? why I'm having these problems all of a sudden? I do nothing but send E-mails and read my emails and I do not browse the internet or enter sites that are safer. So, what can I do? How to make everything return to normal? can someone help me with this?
    Also let me tell you right now, I'm not an expert on how to do things on the computer, so I'm scitish when it receives or sounds complicated. I don't want to lose my entire system because of these unfortenate none of the work programmes.

    Hello shessy49, welcome.

    I would recommend that we run a SFC (System File Checker) first scan to see what he finds. Try this:

    1. click on START
    2 type "msconfig" (without the quotes) and press enter
    3. go to the "Startup" tab and uncheck all the entries displayed
    4. click on 'Apply' at the bottom right
    5 restart your computer

    After the reboot

    1. click on START
    2. Type "cmd" (without the quotes). Right-click on the result at the top of the menu START and select 'run as administrator '.
    3. type "sfc/scannow" (without the quotes) and press enter

    If the question started very recently, you can try a system restore:

    1. click on START
    2. click on "all programs".
    3. click on "Accessories".
    4. click on "system tools."
    5. click on "system restore."

    6 follow the prompts shown to restore your system to a date before the problem started. Although the system restore does not target the personal data, it is recommended that you back up all data such as music, photos and documents in case something is not bad.

  • Try opening Windows Defender me gives error code: 0x800106ba - a problem caused this program service stop. Help, please.

    Hi all

    I am a newbie with doozy a bit of a problem:

    Services of Windows Defender on my local computer no longer works.  The message I get is:

    «Windows Defender encountered an error: 0x800106ba.» A problem caused this program service stop.  To start the service, restart your computer or search help and Support to find out how to start a service manually. »

    "The Windows Defender service on Local computer started and then stopped.  Some services stop automatically if they are not in use by other services or programs. »

    Any help, help, clarity on this issue...?

    Thank you very much! :]

    This problem can occur because another security application is used or the Windows Defender service has stopped, or components of Windows Defender are corrupt.

    You install any new programs recently? Windows Defender is not designed to protect against the extent of malware. If programs like Microsoft Security Essentials or AVG 9 and Windows Defender both run, your system may experience degradation in performance and other problems caused by the conflict of two services providing real-time protection at the same time. I recommend that you keep the Defender off if another application of security protection is running. These security software stop windows Defender work properly in order to prevent conflicts.

    If no similar security application is installed, I suggest that we have follow these steps to resolve the problem:

    Step 1: Check the Windows Defender service
    1. click on start, in the search box, type: "services.msc" (without the quotes) and press ENTER. If you are prompted for an administrator password or a confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
    2. double-click on the service "Windows Defender".
    3. click on the 'general' tab. Make sure the "Startup Type" is "automatic". Click on apply. Then please click on "Start" under "Status of Service" to start the service.

    If the problem is not resolved, please refer to step 2:

    Step 2: Save the associated DLL files
    1. click on start, type "cmd" (without the quotes) in the box start the search. Right click on CMD listed above and click 'run as administrator '.

    2. in the command prompt, type the following and press ENTER to each order:

    regsvr32 atl.dll

    regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\wuapi.dll
    regsvr32 softpub.dll
    regsvr32 mssip32.dll

    3. close the command prompt, and then run Windows Defender.

    If you use Norton, AVG, Avira, Microsoft Security Essentials, McAfee, etc. the default action is for Windows Defender must be disabled, that these AntiVirus programs have their own Antispyware Applications.

    There is nothing to worry.

    Using both programs at the same time can cause system conflicts, etc.

    If you are using one of the above AntiVirus programs, this Information from David O - Support Engineer shows you how to manually enable Windows Defender (disregard information from uninstalling; not possible in Vista):

    "Go to start, Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Services. Look for Windows Defender.

    Right click and select Properties , ensure that Startup Type is automatic.

    Once modified, click apply and OK.

    Quit and restart your computer. Check the back take the same path to confirm that Windows Defender has started"

    Without knowing the programs you want to disable, I'll start by saying that I can't be responsible for adverse effect to the normal operation of your system.

    That said...

    • Click Start
    • Type msconfig and press enter
    • Click on the Startup tab

    You will see checkboxes for programs that run at startup.

    Or you can use a more comprehensive tool called autoruns...

    Maybe is a better way to explore the settings for the programs themselves, there is often a check box for "do not run at startup.
