  1. Firstly I would run a full virus/malware scan with your AV and then run Malwarebytes Free on a full scan in safemode because it is possible this could be a virus issue. Then; Run a chkdsk And a System File Scan - sfc /scannow from command line as Admin From the command line as Admin To reset winsock - netsh winsock reset catalog To reset TCP/IP stack - netsh int ip reset reset.log And/or ipconfig /release ipconfig /renew Are you piggy backing someone else's router? You may need to 'Reset' the router!
  2. Ummm maybe a daft question here but had you reinstalled windows vista and if so have you download and installed all necessary windows updates including .net framework updates? Did you format the new hard drive before use? I not understanding what you have actually done since the old hard drive died, need to know all you done prior to the hard drive failure....
  3. See here how to execute a program remotely = http://motevich.blogspot.com/2007/11/execute-program-on-remote-computer.html Also see here = http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897553
  4. Try taking ownership of the file or folder in question, if that fails take ownership of the driver in question. Also have you tried in safe mode?
  5. First off I would follow this guide here to confirm that no virus or malware has corrupted and damaged your drivers = http://forums.windowsforum.org/index.php?showtopic=47822 If you could take a snapshot too of your 'device manager' and post it here just so we can see if there are any obvious issues. Also can you post full specs of your machine too and this way I can locate 'all' necessary drivers that you need for your machine. The most common manufacturer websites for driver is here = http://forums.windowsforum.org/index.php?showtopic=47207 Selected Graphics driver support websites
  6. Mine would be these below, Google Chrome MS Office - Word/Excel MalwareBytes Free NFOPad Ccleaner
  7. Something I haven't experienced myself personally but I did find this information here that might prove helpful - http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_vista-system/disk-boot-failureinsert-system-disk-and-press/0f20b8af-5d15-4f67-8831-51c546367043
  8. Well in that case I am going to say this is a hardware issue.... Have you replaced any hardware in your machine recently? Also check for an update for your BIOS also as sometimes this can cause issues and remove the CMOS battery to reset the bios.
  9. Maybe too late but you can take a look at this info here http://www.techotopia.com/index.php/Understanding_Windows_Server_2008_File_and_Folder_Ownership_and_Permissions#Effective_File_and_Folder_Permissions
  10. This is correct and the way it should work, reason being if you are selecting an option by 'keeping your finger on the tab or button' and then it changes it will just act as a rolling action and keep going through the available options that would possibly under your finger. Wouldn't make sense to have what you are suggesting in place and as any other touch screen you need to release your finger to be able to move on through whatever options.
  11. From what I can make out buddy this is related to your memory and your drivers but don't know what driver it is that is causing your issue. So it is possible RAM Issue and Driver Issue It can be helpful to use Driver Verifier; To enable Driver Verifier... start > verifier.exe > OK > Create standard settings > Next > select driver names from a list > Next > sort by Provider > select all non Microsoft drivers > Finish, and OK. Then, reboot and use the system as you normally would, and wait to see how you go. In the event that the system does not boot completely af
  12. perfmon /report isn't reliable for collecting data for bandwidth and really shouldn't be used for doing so IMO I don't know of anyone that uses the performance report for bandwidth data. To monitor your Bandwidth you should try this, NetWorx – Free Bandwidth Monitoring and Usage Reporting See Here
  13. Can you open up the Task manager go to processes Tab and stretch it so all processes are in view and then take a snapshot and post it here? I know you said you have done a virus can but can you follow this HERE and this one HERE too? Lets us know the results but before you do could you post a snapshot of processes first.
  14. Are you talking about processes or services? As for processes that is basically down to what you have installed and running on your computer mainly with a few other exceptions that should be touched. Now for Service you really need to be careful what to disable, you check out this site here and show a good few services that are safe to disable - http://www.marksanborn.net/howto/turn-off-unnecessary-windows-services/ Again if you are that worried that you may have things running that shouldn't be there then I suggest a Malware/Virus scan, you can fin the link in one of your other threads
