Corrupted user profile, try is this order, stop when it's fixed.
1. Try system restore.
2. Boot from Windows disk, run repairs.
3. Do the above but choose advanced repair options and open command prompt. Type sfc /scannow and after that completes try chkdsk c: /r

Note - This is likely a sign that your Hard Drive is failing, also possible is bad/dirty ram. I'd suggest you have a repair shop verify the hardware and BACKUP as soon as you can.

In this case, you will need to reset your Windows Vista password.

If your computer is on a domain, only your network administrator is authorized to reset your password. If your computer is not on a domain, you can reset the password by using a password reset disk. To know more about password reset disk, you can refer to the link below:

If you do not have a password reset disk, the only option you are left with is to re-install Windows. The following link can be useful to know more about what to do when you have forgot your Windows password:

Hello, Using the following Network Tools DNS IP Email You can select this link http://mxtoolbox.com/SuperTool.aspx?action=mx%3abtinternet.com&run=toolpage This contains the current MX record for that domain name.

When you add your email account to your client, ie outlook, thunderbird, etc, you can select the record and port (pop-110 smtp-25) and the server name would be the MX record listing for that domain.

With the user and password set you will be able to add your email account.

Now if you run into issues I would contact your hosting provider to determine any specific settings on how to add the email accounts. They may have FAQ pages like this(example) : How do set up my Outlook and Outlook Express for Imail SMTP authentication...

Hi Anon
Your laptop should come with an Ethernet connection as well as wireless connections, try making a wired connection via your Ethernet port, these are usually more reliable than wireless connections.
When I have experienced these sort of problems it is usually because of a missing driver.
Check that you have the proper drivers for your internet connections installed, these should come on a disk that is supplied with your laptop.
Finally check this link for Microsoft's official network trouble shooter.

Start the computer into safe mode, uninstall Comodo Security Software (probably an antivirus or other related program). Clean the computer with CCleaner, then reinstall with updated version of the software. Check to make sure there are no conflicting software, such as; other antivirus programs, standalone firewalls (besides the Windows firewall and Windows defender). Also run portable antivirus (Emsisoft Free Emergency Toolkit, ClamWin Portable), Malwarebytes, and Spybot Search and Destroy to make sure you have not bad programs interfering with antivirus and corrupting necessary programs. Once this is done, reinstall Comodo or your preferred antivirus software, suite, and restart your computer in normal mode.

If this is causing you to have crashes, the .exe is probably corrupt. It belongs to booster and certain tuneup utility programs ("Dachshund Integrator or TuneUp Utilities (version 2006, 2009) or Glary Utilities (version 3) or Glary Utilities PRO or Auslogics BoostSpeed"). If you have any of these programs installed I'd uninstall it and restart your computer. Then reinstall if you want to use the program still, though preferably after an update. I'd also clean your computer with CCleaner and remove junk files before reinstalling. This will clear corrupted files that might not have been removed with the uninstallation of the program. If you continue to experience this issue, install sandbox and make sure the program runs within sandbox. This will prevent any faults or issues with the program from interfering with your OS.

There's always a reason but who cares if there is a good solution. Try rebooting your wifi router and then your PC and see if the connection returns. Also try to delete your WIFI network connection. Then reboot and it should return and so may your connection! If its a secure connection check if your password is correct by opening your WIFI network connection by double clicking it and clicking on wireless properties and then the security tab. Confirm your security key exists and is correct.

Hey, Judy. I'll be telling you how to reset your password on your operating system. I'd like to add that I haven't used Windows Vista in a very long time so excuse any minor mistakes I make. :)

So before you get started, it might be helpful to write down the steps of this guide as you won't be able to keep your computer on to do this.
If this is a computer that your work/school was provided, bring it to the technical department there, as they may have precautions that don't allow for this.

  1. Shut down your computer completely.
  2. Press your power button on your computer and start repeatedly pressing the "F8" key on your keyboard until a menu pops up. Make sure you start as soon as you press the power button. It might be a bit hard at first and it is perfectly fine if you have to turn off your computer and start again.
  3. Once you are on the black menu, use your arrow keys to select "Boot in Safe Mode"
  4. Once the computer boots into safe mode, click "Administrator".
  5. Once logged in, click the Windows Logo.
  6. Type "Control Panel' and press enter.
  7. Click "User Accounts and Family Safety", what it is called may vary slightly just use logic to discern what it is.
  8. Click "User Accounts"
  9. Find your account and click on it.
  10. Click "Change Password" and fill in the forum and click "Apply Changes" or something to that effect
  11. Reboot your computer and startup normally, you should be able to log in with your new password.
If you need further help feel free to comment on this answer and I'll try to get back to you. ;)
