Why accident to explore Windows vista and mouse slow down when the Panel is open?

My computer works fine except when I try to open the control panel.  Then windows explore crashes, my mouse is useless and impossible to close the control panel by using the menu of the task.  Everything disappears when I managed to select restart windows Explorer and the closed control panel.  I have seen a lot of messages from people having the same problem but I still see a response that it heals.  Microsoft want money to repair their fault and I'm not ready to feed their greed. If anyone else can help?


What antivirus/antispyware/security products you have on your machine? Include everything you
ever had including those that you uninstalled. (These can leave leftovers that can cause strange)

Search all .cpl files most will be in "C:\Windows\System32" However, you can have
others. Click on each of them at a time and see if it does not start - if so right click on it and
Rename it using cpZ as the extension is easy to find. Try Control Panel - if no Dungeon of joy
try all the .cpl files. (Note that other people find other subfolders under C:\Windows should
not be judged because they are not active.)

Some of them are appwiz.cpl firewall.cpl, desk.cpl, powercfg.cpl, inetcpl.cpl, timedate.cpl and others.

Try these in case the General corruption has a role to play:

Start - type this in the search box-> find COMMAND at the top and RIGHT CLICK – RUN AS ADMIN

Enter this at the command prompt - sfc/scannow

  • installed the game CD Gears of War on my computer (Windows VISTA) and make me "Please insert the correct DVD - ROM, click OK and restart the application" - but the disk is IN the drive.

    original title: Gears of War for PC (Vista)

    I installed Gears of War game CD on my computer (Windows VISTA) and make me "Please insert the correct DVD - ROM, click OK and restart the application" - but the disk is IN the drive.  I've been on the net and does not know what is the problem and why this game will not run.  I've installed, uninstalled, reinstalled tried to run as administrator, got the latest patch, all the things that have said all sites to do - anyone have any ideas?  Any help would be appreciated!  Thank you!

    Hi NoOneSpeciale,

    It is very possible that your CD may be damaged.  Is it possible to get another copy to try on your machine? Or try this copy on another machine to see if it works or not.
    Also check in control panel--> system--> for you Device Manager make sure that there is no yellow/red icon next to the CD player and it's function correctly.

  • WIFI disabled on windows vista and cannot wireless connect to the net

    WIFI disabled on windows vista and cannot wireless connect to the net, but bluetooth wireless Wi - Fi and fine switch is activated. Have a problem with ISATAP #5 who is incapable of solving that can be bound.

    All of a sudden I lost my internet connection wireless and I am unable to return.  May be because recent windows update.  Error messages on the wireless assistant say WLAN offshore or disabled.  I have tried every fix.

    In device Manager (under network adapters) shows also that MS ISATAP disabled with "Windows cannot load driver (Code 31).  When I try to update the driver, "Best driver already installed" appears.

    Is there a way to FIX?

  • I got a new computer (an old dies) new a windows vista and I have to disable the old computer before I load the same copy of Vista on my new computer. If yes how can I do this?

    I got a new computer (an old dies) new a windows vista and I have to disable the old computer before I load the same copy of Vista on my new computer.  If yes how can I do this?

    If Vista is preinstalled on your OLD computer, it is classified as an OEM license and is not transferable.

    The license of Vista OEM is related to the original computer it is installed on and dies with the computer.
    You cannot transfer it to another computer/laptop

    If a license of Vista at retail, you can transfer it to another computer/laptop.
    But it can only be installed on one computer at a time.

    A single license is a single Installation.

    If it is a retail Vista license, read the information on the clean install and then reactivate it:

  • Response of mouse slows down when editing

    It is a continuation of a discussion dated dated August 21, 2011 16:26 with suggestions of Bill Gehrke and John Smith, who has recommended how I could speed up edition and made my PC i7 and suggestions to solve the slow response of the mouse .

    My problem:

    After that several clicks of the mouse, the first quick reactions from first Pro CS5 are starting to slow down to a crawl.

    My PC:

    -ASUS P6TWS Professional Motherboard

    -Intel Core i7 920 CPU

    -12 GB OF DDR3 1333 RAM

    -4 HD 1 TB

    -Video card ATI RADEON 4670 1

    -Coolermaster 690 case separate real power 700W

    -LG BlueRay writer

    -Microsoft Wireless Laser Keyboard 6000 v2.0

    -Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 6000


    1. Disable indexing on your hard drives.
    2. Try wired keyboard and mouse (old style, no USB) with the generic driver for Win7.
    3. Try disabling the two security programs.
    4. Do not use boot drive for what anyone (editing wise) but the OS and applications. Sale video project and media on another quick of HDD or a table.
    5. Try another (more recent AND older) driver for your ATI card.

    Status of the above numbered items:

    1. Indexing is disabled on all drives used for video editing.
    2. The Asus P6T WS Pro motherboard has a combo keyboard and mouse PS2 Connector.  I was trying to use an old PS2 Keyboard and mouse PS2 to replace the Microsoft wireless keyboard/mouse.  This would require a PS2 PS2 male/2 female adapter.  Information on the Internet shows that there is 2 pins to spare on a standard PS2.  These 2 spare pins are used on connectors PS2 combo for the mouse clock and data which I assume is the case for the ASUS motherboard.  This requires a special adapter where regular clock pins and the date the female to PS2 Keyboard and pins of alternatives to the female to PS2 Mouse.  I couldn't so far find such an adapter.
    3. I need to use the Internet for updates of program so I would disconnect the LAN to disable security for the trial.  If security is the issue, I guess it would be to disconnect the LAN and disabling security whenever I'm editing video.
    4. I have 1 TB disks 3 other than the boot drive, one for each video source, audio source and output rendered.  I think that the reader audio source would be best to share with the project file because the audio files are not as demanding on the CPU if treated earlier in Soundbooth.
    5. I'll try different drivers.

    As recommended, the first Pro Benchmark I ran against my i7 PC to conclude that performance was close to the other similarly configured PCs. This confirms that I am dealing with problems of the outdoor unit.  In this case, the interaction of the mouse when editing is the likely suspect.  I'll try a second run after the changes.  I don't know how the files originate in the testbed among my 4 hard drives so that the results may not indicate a better distribution of readers.

    Does anyone can tell where I can get a combo reliable adapter PS2?  Do not share the drive audio source with the project file a better choice than the readers of rendered files or video source?


    > solved by replacing the laser mouse with a PS2 Mouse Wireless

    Just guessing here... but my 'better thinking' is that your problem is not the material of the mouse, but the the mouse software that created the wireless link was not totally compatible with 'something' in Adobe software

    Another option could be a USB mouse

  • Why my mouse slows down when using LabVIEW 8.5?

  • My hard drive went bad so I bought a new. I installed Windows Vista and everything works until I try to install SP1...

    As I said in the title, my hard drive went bad on my Dell XPS 420.  I was running 32 bit windows vista service Pack 2 since the last time my hard drive gone bad.  The first time I replaced my hard drive I used the cd of Windows Vista install with cd drivers and using automatic updates of windows.  In a few hours, I had my pc up and running.  But with this record, it's a completely different story.

    I did the same thing with her.  Installed Windows and drivers as before and I go ahead and do the automatic updates.  Everything is okay until I get to point when I download and install windows Service Pack 1.  I download, install and it seems to work very well.  Then it restarts to complete the installation and configuration.  After about 30 minutes of this, he finally said service pack error.  Restoration of the changes.  He then takes 30 minutes more to do.  After that, I get a screen saying that Windows does not start.  A recent hardware or software change might be the cause.  Follow-up by telling him to use the windows cd repair section.
    I did this 3 or 4 times to do different techniques.  I did it with the automatic windows update.  Manually as an administrator.  After using the analysis tool in Windows Vista and in another way when restore you some files.  I am about to throw my pc because I've probably spent nearly 10 hours of messing around with it and honestly it's not my time unless there is ANOTHER way that deserves to be tried before I "Offices" of the thing.
    Honestly, I think I read every article on this subject online.  If I type in service pack 1 and vista online I went to all the links on the first 10-12 pages...
    If anyone has AN idea please let me know.  Yes, I would like at the office space that it but it would also be good to have another pc with a new hard drive...
    Thank you.

    Detect and automatically fix problems of CD/DVD

    Please make all below even if you have done some before as it is often the set of operations which solves
    the question.

    Try this - Panel - Device Manager - CD/DVD - double-click on the device - driver tab - click
    Update the drivers (this will probably do nothing) - then RIGHT click the drive - UNINSTALL - REBOOT
    This will refresh the default driver stack. Even if the reader does not appear to continue below.

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

    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.

    Hope these helps.
