My computer always seeks a wired connection, even if I don't have a dial-up or ethernet connection.
When I want to connect to a public wireless network, I often have a cannot display page opinions, with the ability to diagnose connection problems. When I followed these instructions, he still thinks that it connects to a wired connection. My computer does not have even a modem. Is there a way to set the default connection to a wireless connection?
Thanks for posting. What exact error that appeared leading you to believe that it is looking for a wired connection? There is no way to set a default network connection, but disabling the wired network adapter is fairly easy.
To do this:
1. click on the Start button.
2 click on icon from your desktop and select Explorer.
3. in the window on the left side, right-click my network places , and then select Properties.
4. here, you should see your wireless and wired network adapters.
5. right-click the wired adapter and select disable.
6. to activate the card again, click on the same card and select enable.
I hope this helps. Let us know if you have any questions.

When I updated Firefox to version 32, he started to always show my tabs in the last session when it is started. I tried to change the "Startup of Firefox" option to all three of the available choices. None of them changed the behavior. It nevertheless opens the tabs that were open last. I waited for the next version (33.0.3), but the behavior is always the same. I would like Firefox to open my home page selected.
I'm running Windows 7 Pro.
One possibility is that Firefox hangs during shutdown, and so Firefox is recovering from an accident each time. But if you can see it stop normally in your tests, which probably isn't.
Software sometimes external will create or update an optional parameters file named user.js. For some reason, one of the things that often turns in there is a preference to restore your previous session at once. However, because Firefox uses user.js to override your normal parameters, whenever it starts, which then turns into a permanent change. To check this and remove any file user.js, you find, try this technical support article: How to fix preferences that will not save.
A little luck?

I reloaded Microsoft Windows Vista, now I can't connect to the internet. He says that I don't have a driver for the Ethernet cables. What can I do to fix this?
You download the drivers from the website of the manufacturer of the computer.
Use the computer that you are on to get here > download save Driver/s to Office > copy to flash drive > transfer and install them on the problem.

Keep pressing F8 during startup, and then start Windows in Repair Mode. When there, use system restore to set Windows to a point when it was still working.
When you're done, plan ahead a little and create, test and document an alternative admin account, same as you have a spare emergency House key.

When I go into power settings and put the computer to sleep, I choose NEVER. The reason why I have some backups that take a long time. However my computer always goes into the mode after a certain time. I've been through this several times. How can I fix it? Thank you

Check the change Plan settings - change advanced power settings
Check the change when the computer sleeps
Is - that go to sleep or is the active screen saver?
Right click on the Desktop - Customize - screen saver.

OK, I got Windows Vista Home Basic on my computer and my hard drive crashed while I do not have the recovery partition. The key is always on the side of my computer. I wonder how I can get a basic Windows Vista Home Edition installation disc without having to purchase and any other key.
You don't have to buy another license.
How to get Vista recovery Media.
There is no Vista free download legal available.
Contact your computer manufacturer and ask them to send a recovery disk/s Vista set.
Normally, they do this for a cost of $ small.
Or borrow a good Microsoft Vista DVD (not Dell, HP, etc).
A good Vista DVD contains all versions of Vista.
The product key determines which version of Vista is installed.
There are 2 disks of Vista: one for 32-bit operating system, and one for 64-bit operating system.
If install a cleaning is required with a good DVD of Vista (not HP, Dell recovery disks):
Go to your Bios/Setup, or the Boot Menu at startup and change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order, then reboot with the disk in the drive.
At the startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, go to Setup/Bios or F12 for the Boot Menu
MS advice on the conduct of clean install.
A tutorial on the use of a clean install
Super Guide Windows Vista Installation
After installation > go to the website of the manufacturer of your computer/notebook > drivers and downloads Section > key in your model number > get latest Vista drivers for it > download/install them.
Save all data, because it will be lost during a clean installation.

Original title: Googleupdate.exe * 32
Windows 7 HP 64 bit. (sp1)
Google Update is running in the Task Manager, although I have not Google chrome opened. My pc is running slowly, my network is slow. Its bad enough I can't install programs via a disc more (which didn't need internet connection or speed), but to have windows and other services that run in the background continuously, who do not have something productive and I cannot control drives me crazy. I need to disable or stop the services, tasks, programs that run several times and are not necessary. Some do not stop little matter what I do or restart even if disabled. I ran antivirus, malware software software and nothing shows ever.
As an administrator:
I disabled (via the services)
1 Google update service (gupdatem)
2 Googe Update service (gupdate)
But I still Googleupdate.exe * 32 running. I check and these both are disabled. So is there a service control for programs and services 86 bit 64-bit and 32-bit? And how to get there? Or is it in software?
How to disable the GoogleUpdate.exe. service * 32?
Thanks for posting your query in Microsoft Community.
In dealing with this problem after installing or using a google application and service "Googleupdate.exe * 32" which is causing the problem, you can contact google for assistance.
Last night my computer upgraded to version 24 of Firefox, and now there is no scroll bar to navigate up and down pages. Please can you help me?
Try Firefox Safe mode to see if the problem goes away. Safe mode is a troubleshooting mode, which disables most of the modules.
(If you use it, switch to the default theme).
- You can open Firefox 4.0 + in Safe Mode holding the key SHIFT key when you open the desktop Firefox or shortcut in the start menu.
Once you get the pop-up, simply select "" boot mode safe. "
If the issue is not present in Firefox Safe Mode, your problem is probably caused by an extension, and you need to understand that one. To do this, please follow article Troubleshooting extensions, themes and problems of hardware acceleration to resolve common Firefox problems .
