Think about it an absolute must - manually update your drivers.
Vista and Windows 7 updated drivers love then here's how update the most important.
This is my generic how updates of appropriate driver:
This utility, it is easy see which versions are loaded:
-Free - DriverView utility displays the list of all device drivers currently loaded on your system.
For each driver in the list, additional useful information is displayed: load address of the driver,
Description, version, product name, company that created the driver and more.
For drivers, visit manufacturer of emergency system and of the manufacturer of the device that are the most common.
Control Panel - device - Graphics Manager - note the brand and complete model
your video card - double - tab of the driver - write version information. Now, click on update
Driver (this can do nothing as MS is far behind the certification of drivers) - then right-click.
Uninstall - REBOOT it will refresh the driver stack.
Repeat this for network - card (NIC), Wifi network, sound, mouse, and keyboard if 3rd party
with their own software and drivers and all other main drivers that you have.
Now in the system manufacturer (Dell, HP, Toshiba as examples) site (in a restaurant), peripheral
Site of the manufacturer (Realtek, Intel, Nvidia, ATI, for example) and get their latest versions. (Look for
BIOS, Chipset and software updates on the site of the manufacturer of the system here.)
Download - SAVE - go to where you put them - right click - RUN AD ADMIN - REBOOT after
Always check in the Device Manager - drivers tab to be sure the version you actually install
presents itself. This is because some restore drivers before the most recent is installed (sound card drivers
in particular that) so to install a driver - reboot - check that it is installed and repeat as
Repeat to the manufacturers - BTW in the DO NOT RUN THEIR SCANNER device - check
manually by model.
Look at the sites of the manufacturer for drivers - and the manufacturer of the device manually.
Installation and update of drivers under Windows 7 (updated drivers manually using the methods
above is preferred so that the latest drivers from the manufacturer of system and device manufacturers are
If you update the drivers manually, then it's a good idea to disable the facilities of driver under Windows
Updates, that leaves about Windows updates but it will not install the drivers that will be generally
older and cause problems. If updates offers a new driver and then HIDE it (right click on it), then
get new manually if you wish.

Original title: windows search service does not start.
When I try to start the service "windows search" I get the following error "windows search on local computer started and then stopped. Some services stop automatically if they have no work to do, for example, the services of newspapers and performance alerts' I tried manually and nothing, can someone help me please.
It is a XP machine and yes I have windows search 4.0. I need help to get that windows search service has restarted.

Need to CUC automatically import users and assign a certain user or role model if they are added to a specific security group. (These are the help desk users). Username admin accounts they will use to sign in CUC differs from that there windows account that is linked to their profile of voicemail.
Current - now we must import new recruits and assign the correct model
Want - when a user is added to a security group in AD, so when CUC doing his nightly sync, it automatically import user and assign a preconfigured for the account and all user model is automatic and I have never import it back these users.
At the present time the course help desk users are already imported via LDAP and have the role that was.
Not something that the UCA can do out of the box.
The UCC does not offer, is to do the LDAP synchronization and once they are in CUC, to import, choose the model.

Original title: clock wrong, lot of time whenever I connect
My clock is constantly with the wrong time almost every time I connect and I have to readjust it. Can anyone help? Also, I tried live help, but for some reason that Microsoft would not accept my product key, I know it's the right key.I also seem to lose my time 12 settings of the clock all the time too, and he keeps returning to the 24 hour clock that I hate. And I often do not remember how I changed it in the first place to return the parameters of what I want.Any help appreciated.Help with my product key I type in directly from the email that Microsoft sent me live also really curious to know why I can't get online?
Try this workaround:
- Type "schedule tasks" in the search field of the start screen of windows or via the menu of charms and open it.
- Expand - Library of Task Scheduler > Microsft > Windows and you will see - synchronization of the time, almost at the bottom of this list.
- Double-click the "SynchronizeTime" task and go to the tab "triggers."
- Click 'new... '. »
- You will see a drop-down list next to the text that says "begin the task:" at the top of the window. Select the option "at startup" and click "OK" to save and close the relaxation. You will then see your new trigger on the list in the task. Click 'OK' to close the task.
- Close Task Scheduler.
Time system MUST synchronize now to start and pretty much solve this problem. There may be a delay while your computer connects to a network. Time synchronization may not work if your clock is off by a significant deviation from the server.

I'm having a problem with getting a small version of firefox every time I open a new window but it is empty, it looks like your web page, I have to close it, to look at my site that I opened. I did a virus scan and there is nothing. I have windows and firefox is my homepage, btw when I go to IE I don't have this problem, seems like when firefox installs a new version of that something is happening.
Try disabling hardware acceleration in Firefox.
- Tools > Options > advanced > General > Browsing: "use hardware acceleration when available.
Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/tools > Modules > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is the cause of the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/tools > Modules > appearance).
- Do NOT click on the reset button on the startup window Mode safe or make changes.
