Using Optimizer

Recommended Posts

This past week when I run optimizer I get this "There was an error during download test. Optimization of TCP Window Size (RWIN-value) will be skipped. " and it just finishes the rest.

 

Another problem I have is I keep getting this when I try to access certain website's

Microsoft Visual C ++ Runtime Library

Buffer overun detected

Program C:\Program Files Explorer\iexplore.exe

A buffer overun has been detected which has corrupted the programs internal state.

Program cannot conitinue and must now be terminated.

 

Thanks for any help

Bonnie

The RWIN error with Optimize is usually a firewall issue.

 

You will need to set your firewall to allow www.pcpitstop.com. The corresponding IP is 64.29.201.21. The program name is PCPOptimze.exe and Optimize also needs to be able to receive incoming pings, or have "server" status.

 

If you are also using the Windows firewall, go to Start>Control Panel>Windows Firewall>General and make sure that the "Don't allow exceptions" box is NOT checked.

 

Also, please check for the setting below, and if it exists, that it is set to 'OK'.

 

Start/ControlPanel/SecurityCenter/WindowsFirewall/Advanced(TAB)/NetworkConnectionSettings/SelectSettings(RadioButton)/ICMP(TAB)/Check Allow Incoming ECHO/ OK

 

If you continue to receive the error message, run the pinger and trace route tests from these pages and see if it is a general connection problem or a specific Optimize issue:

The "Microsoft Visual C ++ Runtime Library Buffer overun detected Program C:\Program Files Explorer\iexplore.exe" error could be several things.

 

First, if you installed any browser toolbars recently, such as Yahoo, MSN, or Google, uninstall them for a while and see if the error goes away. If not, or if you do not have any installed toolbars, it's time to do some malware scans.

 

Run through some of the tools and procedures here and see what you find:
