Good morning,
I have a problem with installing Windows Live package. After almost completely finished installation, appears window - "Installing program failed because of a problem during installation of the required part
- Microsoft Choice Guard
Make sure your computer is connected to the Internet. Windows Live programs can not be downloaded if your computer is not connected to the Internet. hr: 0x8104000b"

Im sure that my PC is succesfully connected to the Internet. I tried to turn off Firewall, but it failed again...

Please help me

Just got my new computer with windows 7 and installed corel draw 7 on it

when I run corel and open a window to type in as soon as I hit any key the Help and Support window comes up and will
not let me type. If I close the help & support window it pops up as soon as I hit any key to type.

Is there a way to turn off this window?

Thanks for any help

I have my Dell Inspiron 530s connected to a Samsung HD TV monitor for use as a media center. When I power off my monitor, it causes the computer to shutdown/crash. When I turn the monitor back on, the computer restarts itself, occasionally going to a black screen giving startup options. The video card is a GeForce 9400 and has the latest driver from nvidia. The monitor is connected via a HDMI/DVI cable. After a few days of looking for a solution, I have no idea what might be causing this.

I should probably start off with the history of all this. I built the computer myself in February of this year. I accidentally installed x86 version and it ran perfectly fine. Since I didnt really care at the time, I just left it. Then in May, I decided it was time to go to x64 and also upgraded my RAM from 4GB (2x2GB) to 12GB (2x2GB + 2x4GB). Early July I decided a SSD looked good, installed Windows to it and it ran fine until August.

Sometime in August I started playing a game called APB Reloaded and had crashing issues with the game. Around the same time, I suddenly started getting random BSODs for MEMORY_MANAGEMENT. I ran diagnostics on it and good ol Google. It seemed as though it was just random at the time.

Jump forward a little more (a good 10 BSODs later) and the beginning of September. I started getting annoyed with the BSODs and started trying to solve the problem. Initially, it was looking as if the problem was pointing at AVAST Anti-Virus. So, naturally I got rid of it and tried MSE. About a day later, I get another BSOD pointing to audio. I updated the Audio. 2 days later I get another BSOD that pointed to faulty Drivers in Windows. I attempted to recover and went another few days dealing with random BSODs. I tried to see if I could recreate them. Failed horribly to recreate.

I then found a post suggesting to use verifier to overload the windows drives. I attempted it and I immediately crashed before windows loaded. I found out that there was a very old driver in windows and immediately removed it. Tried to see what would happen after that, after I turned off verifier, and got another BSOD. Tried verifier again and got to desktop only for it to crash for page_fault_in_nonpaged_area pointing at the audio drives. Tried to uninstall the audio drives, and ran it again. Still got BSOD for MEMORY_MANAGEMENT.

Then I seriously thought it might be my memory. I turned the memory diagnostics on, all night on all settings. The results: 19 passes No Errors Detected. I then went to the SSD as the possible cause. Ran every possible HDD utility possible under windows (including a Disk Monitor program) and found 0 Errors. Tried running sfc /scannow, nothing but registry errors that fixed and immediately came back with 0 errors. I then tried to reset all bios settings back to their defaults. I also found, at the time, that I had the onboard graphics enabled and a floppy drive that didnt exist. Also upped my mem speed from 1333 to 1600 during this and pulled the 2x2GB sticks of RAM out. I noticed a huge increase in the speed of the computer (when it was running properly). Gave up at trying when windows decided to BSOD for a random error upon loading firefox.

At that point I said to hell with it and reinstalled windows (This time using Win 7 Pro x64 with SP1) and had hellva time trying to get it to install. I had to force close the install and then install it to get it to install without closing the disk boot. That was yesterday. Today, everything was running perfectly fine. I was installing all my programs and got all the basic stuff down and everything was stable. I got up to go do some homework on my laptop, which is just a few feet away from my desktop, while windows was rebooting from update installation. I turned and looked and it was on the login screen. I said whatever and continued working on my work.

About 15 minutes later, the computer suddenly goes blue and I see it out of the corner of my eye... SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION. ofc, I went straight to google and started the debugging tools. Since I was on the login screen, there really wasnt too many drivers loaded and no programs running. The debugging tool has IMAGE_NAME: memory_corruption... Google found to be of little help so now I am here...

Here is the results of the debug tool...

Update 1: I managed to get the whole system to lockup from a random error. I could move the mouse around but no programs would respond, including task manager and explorer.exe. I waited a few minutes then just forced it to shut down. I am going to rollback to before I updated and see what happens.

Update 2: After rolling back and confirming that the system is at least stable, attempted to update selected windows updates. went fine. I then updated to IE9 and upon restart:

Installed IE9 again with no problems this time (no changes to install method which further questions wtf is going on). Changed Bios features DRAM to Dual-Channel mode and pulled the 2x2GB sticks out. Seems to be running fine right now, but this issue is so unpredictable... Also doubled checked all connectors to make sure everything is secure in the case.

So yesterday in the early AM's I was browsing my internet and all the sudden, bam.
I lost my internet.

No reason at all, it just happened. This is only my computer, everything else works fine (If internet is out, our TV's don't work)

When I go to my little internet icon in the taskbar, it says Unidentified Network and I have no internet access what so ever.

When I run CMD and use ipconfig /release I get this:
"An error occurred while releasing interface Loopback Pseudo-Interface 1 : The system cannot find the file specified."

I also got this error before:
"An error occurred while releasing interface Local Area Connection : An address has not yet been associated with the network endpoint."

Tech support kept telling me to use ipconfig /flushdns but whenever I entered it into CMD it gave me an error saying something along the lines of "command unrecognized"

I cannot give you guys the full text of what CMD says since it's on a different computer.

This has been going on for two days straight and it's just one giant headache, so please help me guys.

NOTE: People keep assuming I'm using wireless, I am using a direct ethernet cord, not wireless.

/EDIT: I'll tell you what I've tried.
* ipconfig /release and /renew and /flushdns
* Turn off firewall
* Update and Reinstall Driver
* Restarting my modem/router
* Restarting my computer
* Unplugging my ethernet cord and replugging it (also leaving it unplugged over-night)
* Manually assigning the 12 code I'm assuming IP

Win7 is driving me nuts. I just tried to link Audacity to the lame_enc.dll mp3 encoder, but it couldn't find it in c:windowssystem32, where it was (according to xplorer2) and where it was supposed to be. I had to move it to another folder before the link would happen.

I'm the only one who has access to this computer, let alone uses it, and I'm SICK of fighting with "permissions," "blocking," and all the rest of "security." Isn't there some way to just turn it all off?

So I've finally snapped. For over a year now I've been enduring this god forsaken problem, dismissing and ignoring it as much as I could whenever it reared its ugly head. I can take it NO MORE. My patience has run out!

Now, as much as I like to think I'm good with computers, there's quite a few things way above my head, I'll admit, but I'll try to explain as clearly as possible what exactly is my problem. The most basic explanation is this: my computer likes to hang every few minutes or so, for a various amount of time, then returns to normal. Sounds like a mild problem? It is, but after a long session of computer use, the innumerable hangs become unbearable. Now to elaborate...

This is a problem more noticeable when I'm browsing the Internet with Firefox, since it's the application I use the most frequently. Sometimes I'll click a link or scroll down a page and it will just hang. Sometimes there is no activity at all and it still hangs. What it does exactly varies quite a bit.

- My mouse cursor turns to the blue spinning wheel and everything becomes unresponsive. I can still move the cursor just fine but I cannot click on anything within the website or the application (in this case Firefox) or scroll up and down, and doing so only seems to worsen the lenght of the hang. However, I can minimize the application or access other programs running in the background (but cannot do anything there either). It also usually says "no response" in the title bar of the application. After some time (can be between a short 3 seconds to a full minute), things come back to normal.

- Sometimes there is a hang within a hang... if that makes sense... It will do the same as described above but then, just for a fraction of a second, it seems to unstuck but ends up hanging again. During the brief time it was unfrozen the mouse cursor often changes to the arrow or hand, giving the impression it's back to normal but really, IT'S A TRAP.

- Occasionally, there's multiple hangs within a short period of time. I think this occurence is the most infuriating because I'm pretty much there with my arms crossed for a good 10 minutes waiting for my computer to stop flipping out. It also likes to do this when I have something urgent to, like bid on something on eBay with 2 minutes remaining. Evil I say.

- Sometimes, the entire application becomes greyed out, if you get what I mean? Or sometimes in minimize itself without me having done anything to that effect, and then maximize itself back up. Sometimes it really hangs to the point where my cursor also becomes unresponsive. All kinds of crazy shenanigans like that...

This is also not limited to my web browser, but also other programs that I use like Photoshop or even games.

- What it will often do in Photoshop is, whenever I'm draw, say a line, it will briefly hang while I still have my finger holding the mouse button down, and the effect of the hang is the same as me letting go of the button, meaning the line just stops. A result I clearly did not intend.

- In games it's usually brief freezes of a few seconds (graphics stop moving, etc) but they are not as intrusive as other applications and they are few and far between.

Now for things that I've tried to fix this problem.

- Ran my Anti-virus (AVG) for viruses. Nothing.
- Cleaned my computer of all unwelcomed maleware using Spybot and Malewarebytes.
- Cleaned my registry.
- Defragmented my hard drive.
- Physically cleaned the inside of my computer to remove dust to prevent overheating.
- Updated all of my drivers.
- Updated Windows 7.
- Turned off and removed from boot multpiple applications that were needlesly running in the background.
- I think I updated my BIOS too, it's been a while.
- Emptied every possible cache I could think of.

Things that I still need to investigate or try.

- I ran the event viewer but I can't really make sense of anything I'm reading. Is there a way to copy paste this here? Anyways, I'm seeing lots of stuff that turn up errors or warnings: Kernel-Power (in critical, is that bad?), Kernel-EventTracing, Service Control Manager, Security-SPP, Wininit, SQLBrowser.

- Performance Monitor has turned up 2 peripheral that couldn't be loaded properly: Microsoft ISATAP and Microsoft Terredo Tunneling Adapter. When I try to update them it says the drivers are already up-to-date, but they still can't boot correctly. I'm wondering if I couldn't simply deactivate them... I don't think it has anything to do with my problem however.

- Repair Windows 7.

- Completely reformat my computer. Absolute last resort option.

- Suggestions?

Hi guys, I have installed windows 7 Operating system. I have got a problem. The moniter turns off though computer (CPU) is switched on (system isn't turned off by me). After a minute, the keyboard and mouse also stop responding.

I've been having this problem off and on since I installed W7 that my CPU is spiking during low network use (e.g. 2-3mbit/sec).

My setup is W7 (32), Core 2 Quad Q6600 @ 2.4 ghz, Asus P5E-VMDO, 8gb memory.

Network Adapter is an embedded Intel 82566DM-2 Gigabit. No other network adapters are present. If I disable the adapter, the problem goes away.

Upon further inspection using Procexp I narrowed down the cpu spike to ndis.sys

As an example:

Downloading a file at 300kbytes/sec will spike the ndis.sys process to 16-20% of the total CPU. It will actually drag the computer to the point where a video playing will stutter.

The program I use to transfer data doesn't matter (obviously considering disabling the network adapter resolves all problems)

The start address in procexp is "ndis.sys!Ndispacketsize+0x201f"

As soon as the download is complete the total CPU use with regular network "chatter" (total of maybe 100kbit/sec) drops down to between 1-3%.

So the question is, why is the CPU spiking?

First obvious question I would have is, "Is the driver correct?". Well, it's the driver that Windows 7 went out, found, and installed, so I presume it is. The driver is a Microsoft driver Version dated 03/26/2009 and it is the "latest" driver (e.g. an effort to update the driver says I'm using the latest one).

I have turned off all extra settings including WOL and Power Management.

I have not hacked or tweaked with the network settings nor do I run any software that tries to optimize or hack network settings.

Any ideas? BIOS issues perhaps?


Hello all,
I just gave my wife a Hp mini with windows 7 starter and we have a problem!
It started with "Please do not power off or unplug your machine. Installing update 7 of 21 .."
Now after 5 hours I decided to turn it off and try this again but when it starts back up it goes straight to the update. Please help I am not a computer guru and this is what she really wanted for christmas.

On three computers in the house out of 6, we have image trembling on the display. The problem is minor at times and horrendous at others.

I have had this problem for a fair few months now on my desktop. I have also noticed the problem now on my laptop, and my brother's PC is showing the same image trembling.

Now here's the interesting bit - all three of the affected PC's are running Windows 7 Home.

Seeing as I first noticed the problem on my desktop PC, I tried all sorts of different solutions. At first, I approached the problem as if it was hardware, with the chief suspect being my monitor. I'm going to list the steps I have taken to rectify this problem on my desktop computer;

First the specs;

AMD X2 6000+
4 GB DDR2 Crucial Ram

1) I swapped the monitor for a spare that my brother had bought for someone else when he was building a machine. Image trembling was still present and was not reduced or worsened.

2) Tried using a brand new vga cable.

3) Used a different dvi > vga adapter

4) Replaced my old X1950 Pro gfc card with the one listed above.

5) Move desktop computer from one room to another to make use of different power points.

6) Turned off all other electrical equipment except the computer and monitor.

7) Altered refresh rates.

It was at this point that I noticed the problem occurring on my laptop also. The only thing hardware and software wise that this laptop, my desktop and my brother's desktop have in common is Windows 7.

The really interesting thing is that the remaining three computers (one laptop and two desktops) do not show the same image trembling, even when they are placed side by side to the Win 7 computers. The other computers are running XP (2 of them) and Vista. One computer is using a CRT monitor, while the other two desktops are using LCD/TFT.

So basically, what in the blue heck is going on?

I'm working off of the theory of electromagnetic interference, as moving the laptop around the house indicates the problem is worse in some rooms than others, but I can't figure out why it only effects the Win 7 machines!

Recently I've been having problems suspending Windows 7 and I cannot figure out why. There are several cases I encounter. First when I set it to S1 mode, the computer will enter suspend, however the fans and LEDs will all be on. I have checked all my hardware and unchecked all the boxes to allow any device to resume Windows. When I go into Hibernate, the moment the power turns off to the fans and LEDs, the computer powers up and resumes. When I set it to S3 or S1&S3 modes, the computer begins the suspend processes and when power is cut, it resumes immediately.

I am running Windows 7 RC 64-bit with an Asus P5N-EM motherboard. Suspending with S1&S3 mode did work for a little while, however I did not do anything new to my computer between when it worked and when it didn't. It's a mystery to me and I hope somebody can point me in the right direction. Thanks!

Hi i have been using windows 7 x32 for a while now and i keep hitting a major issue.

when I turn off my machine some times the installation gets as far as the starting windows sign but the windows logo does not appear, so i cut the power and my computer then comes with a memory error.

after i leave my computer off for a while i can load up a Ghost image of my windows installation and it will work fine for a bit. then randomly on some boot up's i will get the same failed boot problem again.

any one else found this problem?


I currently have a genuine 64bit version of Windows 7, with an Intel Q9550, ATI XFX 4890 graphics card, 4gb RAM. The PC is connected to my BenQ monitor with a DVI output. Earlier today i accidentally put my computer into sleep mode, my brother not knowing it was on sleep mode, turned the PC on/off from the mains and noticed it was not booting fully.

The computer powers on, there is no "beep" and i get a message on the monitor saying no signal detected . The mouse and keyboard are not working during boot up. I have tried resetting and shutting down, but the problem remains. I hope i don't have to format as i have not backed up the data for some time.

Thank You.

I have three problems with Win7, and am hoping you all can help me:

#1 My computer will not complete a manual shutdown. The power does not turn off. This is even weirder due to problem number 2. (Asus "tweaked" motherboard. Looks like an Asus problem, anyone know a fix?)

#2 if left Idle, (say, overnight) the computer will randomly power itself down completely, shutting everything off. after a while it will suddenly turn everything back on and continue like nothing happened. Power management is turned off completely. *update* seems to be a disk controller problem with the HD trying to sleep or hibernate, not fixed, just disabled.

#3 randomly on bootup, the network card refuses to work. This only started a few weeks ago. it'll find the network, but refuses to talk to the internet unless I disable the card then re-enable it. *Update* I rolled back the network card driver, and no longer have this problem. the problem seems to be in the latest version of the NIC driver.

When i put a flash video or a game to full screen my computer turns itselfe off suddenly. This means i can't play any games on my PC which is why i bought it. This started the moment i installed windows 7.

Also when i boot windows 7 it takes a very long time to show the windows welcome screen. Before it comes up it shows me a black screen wtih my mouse cursor on it.

CPU: Intel core 2 duo 2.67GHz
GFX: Nvidia 9800 GTX+

Thank you very much for your time....


I have had the same problems going on a few days now, i JUST built a new system and everything seemed fine the first day and 1/2 or so, now it feels as if i have to tip-toe around my desktop and programs just waiting for the next damn box to pop up "XYZ has stopped working" this happens to me with Windows explorer, Internet explorer, my games, installations.. ontop of it all i am having the same problems alot of others are having with the grpahics card i bought, XFX HD Radeon 5750, i get the Vertical Bars either brown/tan or pink or sometimes blue went im restarting at the "shutting down screen" and then the computer reboots to "Windows has recovered from a unexpected shutdown"

So as i was trying to install the new catalyst 9.12 drivers in hopes that it would fix it, id get halfway through the install to "ATI Catalyst 9.12 Installer has stopped Working" that happened for awhile, but its not happening in specific areas, its completely random because eventually i installed it (Still no luck with the Vertical bar crashes... any help would be appreciated) but its driving me absolutely nuts.. id be able to play games for a hours into the night and then shut down, log on the next morning and its the whole damn process again, after decieving me to think it was fixed since it ran fine the night before.

this morning i got a "stopped Working" while in the control panel trying to do a Windows index Experience test or whatever, it got near half through and stopped responding, tried it again and it completed the test, I have also noticed, not 100% positve, but alot of these problems seemed to start happening after a recent windows update. Things also feel as if they are boggin down, clicking around and loading like desktop icons and things which i hoped wasnt going to be a issue since i have 8gb of ddr3 1333 ram

Anyway i apologize for the lengthy post, i would really appeaciate any help. Also i have tried the MachineThrottling regedit thing, mine aswell does not have this tab/key its jsut says Default. i have even turned off Customer Care Experience or whatever its called aswell, still no luck,


When I turned off my computer last time everything was working fine and I had made no changes. Then a few ours later I tunred it back on and it couldn't access the router(I use wired).

Tried just rebooting, didnt help. Tried diagnosing, says it can't find gateway. Tried connecting a laptop to the LAN-wire and it can connect so it's something with my computer. Have 2 cards (both on motherboard) and tried switching to the other one but that didn't help.

What should I do?

Having trouble with one computer on my network. I have 4 computers in the network, 2 desktops, and 2 laptops.
3 are running Win7 Home Premium, 1 is running XP sp3.
3 of the computers have no trouble accessing the other machines. (one of these is the XP machine).
But my desktop machine (Win7) is only able to see my laptop. The other 2 don't appear in the network map.
I can ping the absent computers.
I am not using HomeGroup.

Workstation running
DHCP Client running
DNS Client running
Server running
TCP/IP Netbios helper running
Computer Browser running
Network Discovery is ON
File and Printer sharing is ON
Windows Firewall OFF
All computers running BWMeter with firewall. (Turning BWMeter off changes nothing)

I ran the Network Diagnostics tool, and after running for 1.5 hours, it was still "Waiting for results", so I canceled it.

Router is a Buffalo WRT-HP-54G with DD-WRT firmware.

I don't know what else to try. I can't understand why my desktop can detect one, but not the other two computers on the network.
Any help will be much appreciated.... I have very little hair left to pull out at this point.
