  1. You might want to read this: http://www.castlecops.com/t211853-Help_I_c...Protection.html I am not sure if that's related to your problem, but... Good luck.
  2. There's a handful of programs that can help you with managing startup entries. Let me just give you a few examples here: 1. Spybot - Search & Destroy Click on Mode > Advanced Mode, go to the Tools section and select System Startup. Check the items that you wish to disable and click on the Toggle button. 2. Microsoft Windows Defender 3. Hijackthis Good luck!! =P
  3. I believe it is not a problem with your Firefox extensions (nor is there such a bug with Firefox as far as I've heard). What do you get when you try to download something? Did you get a dialogue box like this: http://blogs.zdnet.com/images/eb_ff_download_01.png and did you select the Save to Disk option? Is the OK button greyed out? If you do not see the download dialogue box, check in the Main tab of Tools > Options to make sure whether you have set a specific location for the files to be automatically downloaded to, or to prompt you where to save them each time. To open a downloaded item from the Firefox download manager, click on the Open link. To view the directory of which the file is in, right click the downloaded item and select Open Containing Folder. You may also wish to refer to this MozillaZine KB article if you haven't yet: Unable to save or download files
  4. The Resident TeaTimer is the real-time protection of Spybot - Search & Destroy (although it's very annoying). If I know correctly, ThreatFire should be quite different as it's based on behavioural analysis (very similar to Kaspersky Anti-Virus's Proactive Defense). What is the problem that is stopping you from downloading with Firefox? Try disabling all extensions to see if it's any of the add-ons causing this. As for Firefox 3 Beta 2, I haven't tried it out yet
  5. Do not enable the Resident TeaTimer feature when installing Spybot - Search & Destroy (It's really annoying and not exactly helpful). However, you should use another real-time protection against spyware as AVG Anti-Spyware Free Edition does not provide that as well. You may wish to try ThreatFire. It's free. Here's a review by PC Magazine: http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,1759,2191333,00.asp About using a router: It's advisable even though you have only one computer. If you have any problems while using the router, the people around here should be able to help you out.
  6. Try avast! 4 Home Edition for a good free anti-virus program. If you do not mind investing a little in an anti-virus program, Kaspersky Anti-Virus 7.0 or Kaspersky Internet Security 7.0 would be a great choice.
  7. Well, if you have a legitimate license, it shouldn't be a problem. I forgot to mention, but you can just use this tool from Microsoft to change the Product Key:Windows Product Key Update Tool for Windows XP
  8. 1. Firstly, was your Windows XP Home a legitimate copy? If so, it should have come along with a Certificate of Authenticity(COA). For OEM machines, there's usually a COA sticker on your computer case with the license type and Product Key on it. More info about COA's: http://www.microsoft.com/resources/howtote...;displaylang=en 2. Regarding a free disk-imaging software: Clonezilla live 3. Yes, you are mostly right. The STOP 0x0000000A: IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL error is probably caused by conflicting hardware. Try removing hardware that you recently installed to see if it helps. (What do you want 2 mice for?) Make sure that your device drivers are the latest versions available. 4. About the RTHDCPL EAccess Violation error, it's related to the software of your on-board audio component. Try to see if a newer version of the software is available from the Realtek download page. If you're unable to solve this, you may wish to disable the Realtek High Definition Audio Control Panel from running automatically at startup. Good luck! Edit: Also remember to install Windows XP Service Pack 2 if it's not already preinstalled.
  9. Sorry that I came in very late at this discussion. Heh... I would not recommend a repair install of Windows XP, as it may not actually fix any problems that you are facing. Instead, perform a clean installation. About backing up, you only need to set aside a small amount of space (say, 10 GiB) on your hard drive for installing Windows XP, so don't panic. You will find this tool helpful: http://gparted-livecd.tuxfamily.org/ Part I - Shrinking the current partition 1. Download the disc image (gparted-livecd-0.3.4-11.iso) and burn it to a CD-R/CD-RW (since you have Nero you may use it to accomplish this). 2. Defragment your system drive (usually C:) if possible (you need at least 20% free space to defragment) before proceeding. 3. Insert the GParted LiveCD into your CD-ROM drive and restart the computer. Hit the Enter key to proceed where applicable. 4. In the GParted GUI, right click on the partition that you wish to shrink and select Resize/Move. You can identify the correct partition by looking at its size and free space information (it should be marked with a boot flag as well). 5. To shrink the partition by 10 GiB, subtract 1024 from the original size (in MiB) and enter the value in the New Size field. Click the Resize/Move button when you're done. 6. Click the Apply button to write the changes to disk. Confirm by clicking on Apply again. 7. Wait until the operation completes. Then, remove the CD from its drive. Click on the Power button. Select Reboot and click OK to restart the computer. 8. Windows will check the disk for errors before starting up. Do not cancel the operation. Part II - Performing a clean installation of Windows 1. When the disk check is complete, insert the Windows XP installation disc and restart the computer.2. You may refer to this page for detailed instructions for performing a clean installation of Windows XP: http://www.winsupersite.com/showcase/windowsxp_sg_clean.asp Phew, that was a very long post. I certainly hope it helps! Edit: Oops, you might want to resize the new partition after you've completed the installation. Moving the files and formatting the old partition... Setting the boot flag and restoring the bootloader on the new partition... That is all a lot of work. Heh... My conclusion: Don't do it! It would be too much trouble =P
