    ·        I got s error code 80070005 when:

    Windows Update does is set to automatic update search and downloaded an update of the normal Windows Defender definitions.

    Downloaded, it would not move.  I regularly got these definitions of Defender updates and installed without problem, since a few years - until Monday July 5, for some reason any.  I'm not aware of any change that I made for all programs, because I downloaded and installed my update of definitions last defender about a week earlier.

    I use a single Windows Vista Ultimate Desktop without networking or wireless involved.

  • Error code 80040154, Please HELP!

    Hi, guys. I just joined because I can't seem to find a solution for the problem that seemed to just start today... and I don't know much about computers except how to cause problems!

    I currently have a laptop with Windows Vista Home Premium Service Pack 2 and running a 32-bit operating system.

    I just installed Norton 360 Version 4 on the computer yesterday, and that's when my problems began. I don't know if I'm having a conflict with the anti-virus program and windows, so Windows is having the problem.

    The thing is, Windows Defender will not download updates, and does not update Windows. It was working fine before, but now it seems that it is having serious problems.

    When I try with Windows Update, I get this: "code 80040154."

    When I try it with Windows Defender, which tells me that in the Security Center, is obsolete and should be checked for updates, I get this: "error found: code 0 x 80040154."

    Does anyone have this problem? If so, how it was fixed? And please, try to explain as clearly as possible, because I think I could have found the answer somewhere else here, but I did not understand what the devil posters spoke.

    Thank you!

Webroot recently expired, so I downloaded Avast! In my case, Windows Update has not worked for at least 6 months...

    Should have replaced free NAV before your subscription or trial period expires (and you must have run the Norton Removal Tool before installing a replacement AV app, too). Then you would have replaced the Webroot request before that your subscription has expired or the free trial period.


    Help: I got hacked. Now what should I do?

    Personal data backup (which none should be considered 100% reliable at this point) then format the HARD disk and do a clean install of Windows.  Please note that a repair installation (upgrade AKA on-site) will NOT fix it!

    HOW to do a clean install of Vista: section "If you want to reinstall Windows Vista by running a new installation...". "of

    Once installed the clean, you will have the equivalent of a "new computer" in order to take care of everything on the next page before connecting the machine to the internet or one local network (i.e. other computers) otherwise and before using a flash drive or the SD card that is not brand new, or has not been freshly formatted:

    4 steps to help protect your new computer before going online

    Tip: After getting the computer fully patched, download/install KB971029 manually:

    NB: No matter what Norton or McAfee free trial which is preinstalled on the computer when you bought will be reinstalled (but invalid) when Windows is reinstalled. You MUST uninstall the trial for free and download/run the removal tool before installing updates, Windows Service Packs, or updates IE and before installing your new anti-virus application (which will require WinXP SP3 must be installed).

  • DVD player does not work error code 36 please help

    I have a computer toshiba laptop satellite my dvd rom is not working, it does not give me the error code 36


    In addition to the BIOS settings the player himself could have problems.


    This instrument requires a PCI interrupt but is configured for an ISA interrupt (or vice versa).
    Please use the computer's system setup program to reconfigure the interrupt for this device.
    (Code 36)

    Interrupt request (IRQ) translation failed.

    Try to use the BIOS Setup tool to change the settings for IRQ reservations (if such options exist). The BIOS can have options to reserve certain IRQS for interconnection of peripheral components (PCI) or ISA devices. For more information about changing the BIOS settings, see the documentation for the hardware.

    On the tab General properties of the device, click Troubleshoot to start the Troubleshooting Wizard.


    Check with Toshiba support

    If you have problems after checking the BIOS settings:

    Step 1: Please do all the same underneath if you did some before as is often total
    a process that solves the problem.

    Try this - Panel - Device Manager - CD/DVD - double click on the device - driver tab.
    Click on update drivers (this will probably do nothing) - RIGHT click ON the drive - uninstall.
    RESTART this will refresh the default driver stack. Even if the reader does not appear to continue

    Then, work your way through these - don't forget the drive might be bad, could be a coward
    cable or slight corrosion on the contacts (usually for a laptop) and other issues.

    Your CD or DVD drive is missing or is not recognized by Windows or other programs-

    The CD drive or the DVD drive does not work as expected on a computer that you upgraded to
    for Windows Vista

    Another possibility is that the cables are loose. Remove ALL power, then make sure that the cables in both
    ends. Remove and replace, do not just tight. For laptops, you can often clean power and
    contacts data with a pencil eraser.

    Some DVD players do not use the Windows default drivers so check with the manufacturer of system and
    manufacturer of device to see if there is a firmware or drivers for your drive if necessary.


    Step 2: You have disc problems as the CD/DVD is actually 4 discs in 1 case (CD & DVD
    Burn and CD and DVD read). So it is not unusual for 1 or 2 operational so that other parts
    do it right.

    Did you follow the Troubleshooting Guide for the reader who still does not work? There are
    the entries in registry that the troubleshooter does not solve and those who "might" be the cause.

    Check with your Maker system and a device for the two possible firmware updates and
    the correct registry entries for your car.

    Here are the keys that I of course are those in question - for the subkeys of the CD/DVD drive
    as there will be other subkeys in these keys. Do not forget to ask specific keys involved as well as
    the parameters.


    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Hardware Profiles\0001\System\CurrentControlSet\Enum\IDE

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\ {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}


    You can probably find more info here and maybe even the exact registry for your CD/DVD settings
    drive from someone with the same model.

    Forums - a lot of expert real help

    CD/DVD units

    Use DevManView to locate the CD/DVD in the registry (be careful and do a prior Restore Point)
    nothing change) - find the DevManView device and then make a right click on it free in RegEdit.

    DevManView - free - an alternative to the standard Windows Device Manager, which displays all the
    devices and their properties in flat table, instead of the tree viewer

    I hope this helps.
