Should I v.27.0 & v.27.0.1 on my computer? Security risk?

On my 64-bit Windows 7 Desktop, on the page to remove programs, I have two versions of FireFox, 27.0 and 27.0.1. They all have two (United States x86en) after their name. The 27.0.1 version is a more recent week, of course. Have the old version there as well a risk of security, such as older versions of Java, or is it harmless? Also, is there a 64-bit version of the browser should I use? The current 32-bit version seems to work very well. Thanks for your help

It is very unlikely that you have Firefox 27.0 and 27.0.1 actually installed on your system.

Usually, the installer for the latest version cleans up the section of the Windows registry that "Uninstall a program" uses to generate this list. However, sometimes the cleanup fails.

I hope someone expert on how to clean it manually will post a suggestion for this so that you can get rid of the useless extra entry.

For versions 32-bit/64-bit Firefox, no 64-bit version of Firefox was released. There is a version of 'nightly' 64-bit for developers, but because it has not yet entered stable, I do not recommend to use it.

  • Should I have my firewall on at all because I have Microsoft Security Essentials?

    Original title: Firewall Question

    I can access photos and music from my computer to the TV if I turn off my windows firewall.  Should I have my firewall on at all because I have Microsoft Security Essentials?

    Hello

    The short answer is Yes, you need the firewall-firewall blocking incoming and outgoing communication except for these applications which his self-taught (trained) are safe allow and therefore blocking unwanted software / unknown (programs, Trojan horses, software spyware, etc.). On the other hand, Microsoft Security Essentials is an antivirus application, that caters to a specific type of malware - virus.

    If the problem is the firewall, let me suggest another freeware firewall that has targeted training, so that you can train to your TV and your computer communicate securely. This program is PrivateFirewall, download it here: http://www.softpedia.com/get/Security/Firewall/Privatefirewall.shtml - this is the firewall that I have used successfully on my own computer for several years now.

  • How do I know what process should run in the background of a HP Pavilion a1020n desktop computer

    There are a lot of processes running in the background of my office, and the amount of memory used varies from 0% to 100%.  Seriously, this affects the performance of my pc, especially if I'm trying to run multiple applications at the same time.  Is there a list of the process 'default' which must be running, and if so, where can I find such a list?

    As I do, that's if you close all the programs that you know how to close there should be only 50-60 process depending on the operating system that you do not specify.

    From there on, organize the task by using the memory manager. Can google those using memory that you want to disable or learn more about.

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

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

    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.

    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.

    Hey Phillipe,

    Welcome to the Dell Community.

    Yes you can use the stylus with this system.

    15z has 15.6 "screen LED backlit LCD capacitive multi-touch, so you can use Targus stylus with this system, which recommends Dell. For more help, you can click on the below mentioned link:

    You don't need to. Just turn it on normally. If it has been long

  • Error "this application has failed to start because normaliz.dll was not found. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.

    Original title: error explorer.exe, Normaliz.dll is missing please help me about the issue.

    Hello

    I get the error "this application has failed to start because normaliz.dll was not found. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem"Please help me!

    Well - so much for the expertise of committed Microsoft Support Engineer 'experts', but no answer to what I expected.

    See how it works for you:

    If you see a message like this:

    Explorer.EXE - unable to locate component: this application has failed to start because Normaliz.dll was not found. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.

    It is in the case Log:

    Event type: Information
    Event source: Application Popup
    Event category: no
    Event ID: 26
    Description:

    Application popup: Explorer.EXE - unable to locate component: this application has failed to start because Normaliz.dll was not found. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.

    Start explorer.exe, but the normaliz.dll file.  If explorer.exe is not able to run, you will not be able to do much with your system until the replacement of normaliz.dll.

    You can click OK for errors and finished up in the Task Manager where you can try to fix it.  The message can keep popping up from time to time, while you're fixing it, so just click OK to close the message.

    If normaliz.dll is missing, you can copy it from a working system to the system afflicted with the same version of XP and Internet Explorer.

    You will get a good copy and put it on a floppy disk, thumb drive etc and copy it to your system plagued by using Manager tasks.

    The normaliz.dll file must be located in the c:\windows\system32 folder and therefore is not a Windows file protected, making the Microsoft Support Engineer 'experts' suggest running sfc/scannow, which is just another one of their prosecution of wild goose that will not work, he'll never work and it will only waste your time (and they don't tell you how to run either - if explorer.exe does not start).

    Then engaged Microsoft Support Engineer 'experts' will offer to you develop a copy of the file from the XP installation CD you probably haven't, but it is also not on your XP installation CD, and you will have the same problem try their suggestions to 'try' to start in any any Mode without failure, so this will not help you.  These "experts" seem to think that the Safe Mode boot or boot will replace magically missing files, but it doesn't.

    You also will be able to properly run a browser on the system afflicted to go on Internet download one.

    There is a large computer security risk in the normaliz.dll from some website download.  The best idea is to get a copy of normaliz.dll from another computer that has the same version of XP and IE and replace it from a USB device (which you can access from the Manager tasks), or using a system that works, you can download one of my SkyDrive.

    You can still use the Task Manager to run the system restore and bring it back, but I've never tried and never use SR in all cases.

    If you have recently done a bunch of Microsoft updates, you may have also gotten IE8 so maybe that something was wrong here although the normaliz.dll is the same for each version.

    When you see the error, you can click beyond it and eventually arrived at your screen background image where you can press CTRL-ALT-DEL to start Task Manager. TM, you can click file, new task, Browse and edit the menu drop-down "Files of type" to all files that you can see all the files in folders.

    Go to c:\windows\system32 to see if normaliz.dll is really missing. If the error appears again while browsing, just click OK to get past it.  The explorer.exe tries to run and cannot until the missing file is replaced.

    If it's the only thing missing, you can get one from a working system of the same type as yours, copy on a Flash DRIVE or a floppy disk and always using TM, to browse, copy and paste it where it should be or you can download one of my SkyDrive.

    TM, you can still access your thumb or any other medium the same disk by navigating, copy, paste, etc very well all work.  You use TM to navigate to your thumb or floppy disk, copy the normaliz.dll good and then paste it in the c:\windows\system32 folder, where it is supposed to be.

    If things get worse, just return to TM and remove the file back where you were in first place and continue troubleshooting.

    Using a system that works, you can also download a copy of the file from my SkyDrive and put it on a floppy or USB thumbdrive and networks diskettes for the distressed system.  Sandalenet means wear you the system afflicted by hand.

    I downloaded a copy of XP Pro SP3 file you need on my SkyDrive (everyone has a SkyDrive for file sharing).

    You can download it and when you do, place a copy of the file in these two folders (assuming that Windows is installed on your C drive):

    c:\Windows\System32

    Here is the link to my SkyDrive and you can get the file you need here:

    https://SkyDrive.live.com/?CID=6a7e789cab1d6f39&ID=6A7E789CAB1D6F39! 311

    When you see the files available for download, you can not see the file extension (.exe, .dll, .cpl, .sys, .zip, etc.), but when download you them they will have the right extension.

    When you download the file (especially if you use Internet Explorer), when you get a chance to save the file, your browser is unable to save the file with an extension (by example, .exe, .dll, .cpl, .sys, .zip, etc) then you will need to manually add the extension appropriate to the file when you download the file before you save it.

    You can download the file without the extension, and then rename the file to add the appropriate extension.  You do not want to use a file called normaliz when the name of the file should really be called normaliz.dll (if the downloaded file has no extension, you will need to change the name of the file to add the appropriate extension to make it work.

    You then put the downloaded files in the correct folders on your system.

    That may not solve all your problems, but at least you will be spending this part and we can then fix the rest.

    In Task Manager, you can click file, hold down the CTRL key, and click New task and that opens a command prompt (or the boot safe mode with command prompt).

    If you have your copy of normaliz.dll on a USB key which is the D drive (for example), and XP is installed on your C drive, you can then type in something like this:

    Copy d:\normaliz.dll c:\windows\system32

    When the copying is completed successfully, you will see a message like:

    1 file (s) copied

    You can always do since if Task Manager:

    If you see a message like this:

  • Firefox 4 will be improved or should I live somewhere else?

    Since the update to F4 internet crashes regularly, correspondence on new sites are ridiculously slow and clicks take ages to turn on. So, as much as I liked Firefox in the past is it time to say goodbye or it will be fixed?

    Follow these steps.

    Click on the orange button Firefox, go to modules . Plugins and disable McAfee Virtual Technician

    If you have McAfee Site Advisor so installed, please disable it in the Add - ons | Menu extensions.

    1. the device does not work, the "Sounds and Audio Devices Properties" indicates "No. Audio Device. Attempted relocation Sigmatel Audio and RealTek HD audio, but without success, what I try next?

    Also, CofigFree does not work despite having tried a reinstall, at startup, an error message appears saying "not found TOSHIBA Network Device Usermode i/o Protocol. Please reinstall ConfigFree'... How can I fix it?

    Thank you very much!

    I m wondering what you did cela sound and Configfree don t work anymore?  :|
    Regarding the sound issue:
    First, you must remove the software from Realtek sound system manager.
    Control Panel-> software

    Then go to Device Manager and remove the sound card in the list of devices (simply mark it and press DELETE).
    After that restart the laptop, wait for windows would ask the audio driver and then point to the driver files that you downloaded from the Toshiba driver page.

    Regarding the ConfigFree:
    Usually the Configfree should work. If there is something wrong then you should uninstall the Configfree first.
    Then you must restart the computer laptop and recommended to clean the registry using the CCleaner (it s free do google)

    HP Desktop Pavilion p6610f 64bits just installed new refurbished Hard Drive No. OS and yet I followed all the steps in the tutorial of HP, but one thing I didn't notice at first was that HP is said to use the smaller ports numbered disc hard SATA Seagate SATA HD shows that it is in the drive of 1st in the BIOS and when I checked for the SATA port There was just the USB ports, I assumed they were the same, but the only ports connected on 11 were the mouse and the keyboard on the 6 & 7 and a mass on the 11 port storage device (that is the hard drive?)  If it's the hard drive, do I go back and unplug something and put it in the USB port 0 and port 1? I had so many problems with the computer from another installed a faulty? hard drive, after the failure of the original, and I just wanted to be sure I did well, and it would be so good sail once I install my Diska recovery and follow other steps suggested by hP.  I guess I'll let it start and see what happens. (I'm on a right of the laptop next to my office right now)  It said to restart with the appropriate boot device.  I guess I should put in the first disc of recovery means turn the computer off then turn it back on again.

    My hard drive installation was a success and now, after installation program recovery discs and 100's of updates Windows and updates of the HP driver, everything seems to work very well.  The hard drive is intalled in port 1 and there is no noise as if it was with the previous replacement hard drive.  But things are still running much slower than they were before the crash.   I disabled elements start and removed many unnecessary programs and don't have not download all of my old library backup files in order to preserve the memory. I will buy and install several memory cards, a mink, update the BIOS Hardware Diagnostic test and hope that somewhere along the line, I will not solve the problem.  I consider this case closed and I thank all those who have posted to give me a helping hand.  Taylor
