Internet Fixes Weekend Wind Up.
============================ Week Of 08/25/2007
Last Mondays News Letter Tips.
1. I just upgraded to Windows Vista and I'm having trouble figuring out how the
CD AutoRun feature works. Can you help me with this, please?
2. My comp has been incredibly slow for a while now. i thought it was an
installed software's problem, but now Iím sure it's permanent, since the
software was uninstalled. I own an HP 3200 AMD Athlon with 512MB Ram and it runs
Windows XP Home edition. I have tried lots and lots of software like registry
cleaners, I have Zonealarm and Norton with windows defender, and Malware Guard
and have used CCleaner recently as well as Spybot S&D and ad-aware, and
a-squared. But somehow, even after lots of bad files and viruses etc have been
deleted my comp is still very slow. Please Help. Thank you!
3. I have a problem with my son's computer that I hope somebody can help me
with. It is a Compaq with Windows XP SP2. It sometimes runs very slowly and the
cooling fan runs quite loudly. Other times it runs and sounds normal. I used
msconfig to turn off the programs that I didn't need running and am constantly
running virus and antispyware software. I also use Cleanup! regularly.
4. I ran a registry cleaner and now I loose connection to IE or Firefox within 5
to 10 minutes of starting up my PC.
5. I gave my laptop to somebody to fix my blue screen of death and now I have
this error message - when I start the system - Windows - System Error - A
duplicate name exists on the network. Please would somebody help me with this.
6. I just discovered 20 of these files in the C: root directory in one of my
computers and have never seen them there before. This is what the file name
looks like: sqmnoopt00.sqm through sqmnoopt19.sqm I did a Google search on it
and it appears to have something to do with MSN Messenger 8.0. If that's the
case, I did install the 8.0 beta version about a week ago - which originally
worked, but no longer does. I haven't uninstalled it yet.
7. My problem recently has been when I boot my pc up I get this black screen
asking if I want to start Windows XP or XP Professional and give me the options
to pick of the 2. I never had this problem until 1 day ago and I tried to do a
system restore but it seems to had been disabled and all restore points erased
anyways any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
8. When trying to log onto my laptop with Windows XP Pro I get the following
message: Unable to log you on because your account has been locked out, please
contact your administrator. How can I log on?

3. I've been battling to send faxes since I switched to DSL (via
digital/analogue landline) I can't get my fax printer to recognize my PCI soft
92 modem. Any suggestions?
4. I have a laptop that was given to me in bad shape. When I turn it on, it
almost immediately freezes, even when not connected to the internet.
5. Yesterday I added some memory (RAM?) and was very careful to ground myself
and I didn't use any tools - magnetic or otherwise. When I rebooted the keyboard
and mouse didn't work
6. I recently got a couple of BSOD's with the 0x000000D1 error,
irq_not_less_or_equal. I ran the debugging app that Microsoft offers and it
found out that the wanarp.sys is to blame for the error.
7. For a reason unknown to me I am not prompted to specify the download
directory when downloading files from the web.
