  • Time protection real HELP in MSE stopped working after running the utility in Windows Live OneCare cleanup tool?

    Protection in real time in MSE stopped working after running the utility in Windows Live OneCare cleanup tool? Error Code: 0x800705b4

    Hello Wally,

    Thanks for posting your query on the Microsoft Community.

    The question error codes and the description that you get suggests that you are facing problem when using MSE. This problem may occur if other security software, such as antivirus, antispyware and antimalware programs, are totally or partially installed on the computer.

    I suggest to change firewall security settings or disable temporary security on the system software and try using MSE and see if it makes a difference. How to temporarily disable security software, you can view the article mentioned below.

     

    Disable the antivirus 

    http://Windows.Microsoft.com/en-us/Windows7/disable-antivirus-software

    Note: Antivirus software can help protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. In most cases, you should not disable your antivirus software. If you need to disable temporarily to install other software, you must reactivate as soon as you are finished. If you are connected to the Internet or a network, while your antivirus software is disabled, your computer is vulnerable to attack.

    For more details, please see the article mentioned below and see that it helps you to fix the problem.

  • Internet Explorer 9 stopped working after an uninstall of HP Support Center

    Internet Explorer 9 stopped working after an uninstall of HP support center and drivers for all-in-one printers from HP (psc1310, C4180, F4200) 3.  Intend to re - install for just C4180.  I chose option to remove any related software, even if the update HP and Photosmart Essentials were left.  IE9 will stop working at the launch (even if launched with no Add - ons and disabled protected and restored advanced settings Mode) and regardless of the initial URL.  If I remove the update of IE8 IE9 works very well.   I tried to reinstall IE9 update, twice, and it continues to fail.

    I am running Vista 32 Home Premium SP2 on Samsung Q210 with Norton 360 v5, SpywareBlaster, and Spybot - Search & Destroy.

    Now, I think that the problem with IE9 was not related to HP, but a replacement of Windows Update for drivers 'Intel Corporation - display - Mobile Intel (r) 4 Series Express Chipset Family': Intel Corporation display software update released in February 2011 (link useless http://winqual.microsoft.com/support/?driverid=20411791).   IE9 has started working OK when I put "use software rendering instead of GPU rendering *" (see http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/archive/1678709 , regarding 'module igdumdx32.dll vulnerabilities'), so now will consider remove this update.

    Sorry to disparage HP.  MS does this to themselves, as usual.

    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.
    http://www.NirSoft.NET/utils/DriverView.html

    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
    each installation.

    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
    necessary.

    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.

    How to install a device driver in Vista Device Manager
    http://www.Vistax64.com/tutorials/193584-Device-Manager-install-driver.html

    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.

  • Explorer Windows stopped working, and it wont let me run cmd as administrator.

    A few months ago, I got the error message "Windows Explorer has stopped working". He asks if I want such online for a solution, or close the program. I looked online and everyone says to run cmd as administrator, and then type Sfc/scannow, but when I right click on cmd after a search on the start menu, it says that it has stopped working again. I also tried to run cmd as an admin using Crlt-shirt-entry, but he always says that it has stopped working. I use Windows Vista Home Basic 32-bit.

  • Explorer Windows stopped working when opening a folder

    Hello

    I get this error "Windows Explorer has stopped working" for the past few months, every time I try to open a particular folder that contains 10-15 .avi files. This folder is located on an external hard drive and when I plugged the hard drive of a computer running XP it's the same thing. It throws this error and gives me 2 options,

    1. check online for a solution and restart the program.

    2. restart the program.

    According to the option that I chose it closes all the windows in the Solution Explorer, and nothing happens.

    I tried to copy the file from external hard disk to the local computer and the same thing happens when I try to access it. I don't think that's the problem with my computer as the same thing happens also on the XP machine.

    Please suggest what to do.

    ===========================================

    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.
    http://www.NirSoft.NET/utils/DriverView.html

    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
    each installation.

    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
    necessary.

    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.
    http://pcsupport.about.com/od/driverssupport/HT/driverdlmfgr.htm

    Installation and update of drivers under Windows 7 (updated drivers manually using the methods above
    It is preferable to ensure that the latest drivers from the manufacturer of system and device manufacturers are located)
    http://www.SevenForums.com/tutorials/43216-installing-updating-drivers-7-a.html

    If you update the drivers manually, then it's a good idea to disable the facilities of driver under Windows

    older and cause problems. If updates offers a new driver and then HIDE it (right click on it), then

  • Speakers stopped working after changing the device sound card

    * Original title: switched to hi-speed of dial-up, speakers stopped working / / rev. #2 Can I change the title of: speakers stopped working after changing the device sound card

    I have a Motorola SM56 speakerphone modem, I went from dial-up to the Road Runner.   When I open Device Manager and expand the sound column it lists "High definition Audio Device" (manufacturer of Microsoft), there are 4 that say "NVIDIA High Definition Audio" then there is one that says "Unimodem Half-Duplex Audio Device.  When I open the properties of the Unimodem device it says ' device working properly. "

    Let me start at the top under "General".  It lists the name of the device: Unimodem half-duplex Audio device.    Device type: audio, video and game controllers;    Manufacturer: Microsoft;    Location: Motorola SM56 Speakerphone modem.

    My speakers worked very well before I went.   I tried updating the driver but he came back with "best driver already installed.  It is a desktop PC, it is about 6 years old, but has been revised, graphics card new, updated to power, new 4 GB ram I think.  The hard drive is 1 TB.   I'm running Windows 7 Pro.  I forgot to mention, if I open a WMV file and volume in the taskbar commands, I see the green light moving.  The green light on the actual speakers turned on, just no sound.  It seems to me that the old speakers do not like the new modem from Time Warner. (I'm an old lady, what the devil I know)

    It is a question of another driver, or is it something else?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Are plug you the speakers into the modem?

    They must be connected in making your computer speaker, usually a light green color (read the manual of the machine). Go to control panel / sounds / playback and make sure that the type of speakers you selected as the default device.
    Audio device drivers updated its better to not use MS Update (it is not). Re-post giving your machine make name and exact model number (for example HP, Inspiron, ABC1234 etc.).
    See you soon,.

    I don't know what to do from here.

    I don't want to reinstall all of Vista. In addition, Vista is PREINSTALLED on my computer.

    Oh and I am not an expert in using the command prompt,-j' found how to do this in other forums.

    Please help on how to solve this problem.

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

    Here's what I use and recommend: (these are all free and very effective versions.)

    Avast and Prevx proved extremely reliable and compatible with all I have
    launched on them. Microsoft Security Essentials and Prevx have also proven to be very
    reliable and compatible. Use MSE or Avast and Prevx, Prevx 3 but not all.

    Avast Home free - stop any shields is not necessary except leaving Standard, Web, and
    Operation of the network.

    Prevx - Home - free

    Windows Firewall

    Windows Defender (is not necessary if you use MSE)

    Protected IE - mode

    IE 8 - SmartScreen filter WE (IE 7 phishing filter)

    I also IE always start with asset if filter InPrivate IE 8.
    (It may temporarily turn off with the little icon to the left of the + bottom
    right of IE)

    Two versions of Avast are available 5.x and 4.8 x

    Avast - home - free - 5.x stop shields you do not use (except files, Web, network, &)
    Shields of behavior) - double click on the icon in the Notification area - real time Orange - click on the
    Shield that you want to stop - STOP. To stop the Orange icon to show an error indicator-
    Click on the Orange icon - top right - settings - click on the status bar - uncheck shields you
    disabled - click OK
    http://www.avast.com/free-antivirus-download

    Avast 4.8 x - home - free - stop shields, you don't need except leaving Standard, Web,.
    and the network running. (Double-click the blue icon - look OK. - upper left - Shields details
    Finish those you don't use).
    http://www.avast.com/free-antivirus-download#TAB4

    Or use Microsoft Security Essentials - free
    http://www.Microsoft.com/Security_Essentials/

    Prevx works well alongside MSE or Avast

    Prevx - home - free small, fast, exceptional protection CLOUD, working with other security
    programs. It is a single scanner, VERY EFFICIENT, if it finds something come back here
    or use Google to see how to remove.
    http://www.prevx.com/   <-->
    http://info.prevx.com/downloadcsi.asp  <-->

    PCmag - Prevx - Editor's choice
    http://www.PCMag.com/Article2/0, 2817,2346862,00.asp

    Also get Malwarebytes - free - use as scanner only. If you ever think malware and that
    would be unusual with Avast and occasional Prevx running with the exception of a low level cookie
    (not much), to UPDATE and then run it as a scanner. I have a lot of scanners and they
    never find anything of note that I started to use this configuration.

  • Explorer Windows stopped working - by clicking on the icons in Control Panel

    I discovered that when I go into Control Panel and try to use the programs icon features as soon as I click I get "windows that explore has stopped working" and it will restart windows Explorer.

    Playing around I found if I just go to control panel and then close the window, I get the same error!

    Argh!   How can I fix it?

    Hello

    Please apply the following patch:

    http://support.Microsoft.com/kb/978433 (Windows Explorer crashes and then restarts when you access an element of Panel of others on a computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2 )

    Click on the link view and request hotfix downloads select the platform (x 86 or x 64) and type in your email twice and enter the captcha ad click request hotfix.

    After 1 minute, you have an email with the link to download an exe file. Use the password is contained in the email to retrieve the update.

    Install the update and restart, now, the problem should be solved.

    and double click on the file to import.

    When Explorer crashes, Windows Error Reporting Service creates a dmp under C:\Localdumps. Please download the file to your public Skydrive folder and post the link here. I take to the dump, maybe I can see the cause.
