dear doneb,
"DDE" means Dynamic Data Exchange. It is used in windows2.0 and also used in some places higher versions of windows. So it is not a spyware or malware.You can disable it by followin the steps below.
>Click Start, click Control Panel, click Performance and Maintenance, and then click
>Administrative Tools.
>Double-click Computer Management, double-click Services and Applications, and then
>double-click Services.
>In the Details pane, click Network DDE.
>On the Action menu, click Properties.
>On the General tab, in Startup type, select disable, and then click OK.

Those error codes don't really mean very much to the general consumer, but blue screens of deaths are caused by bad RAM memory in your computer, not viruses. I'm going to take a guess that your computer is either several years old and/or it constantly get quite warm? Heat can shorten the life of computer components by quite a bit. You may need to get one of your RAM cards replaced to solve this issue.

There's a free program called Memtest86 that you can run to determine if this is the case. It will scan all your memory and look for bad sectors. You can download it here: http://www.memtest86.com/ and burn it to a CD. What it does is create a bootable CD that will execute the program as the computer turns on to scan all the memory. There are full instructions on their website. The process can take an hour or two depending on how much memory your computer has, and if it turns up any bad sectors then you know what your problem is.

A computer can run with bad sectors in the memory, but it makes it unstable that it will keep bluescreening, so if you have bad sectors in your memory it might be better just to replace the RAM. Luckily, this isn't too expensive. For instance, if your computer has 4GB of memory, it probably has 2 2GB RAM cards installed. You can get a 2GB replacement notebook memory for, I'd say $30 or $40. Installing RAM is very simple, and if you're willing to install it yourself, it won't cost you more than that.

Volvo V-70 drivetrain & electronics faults


I suspect you have some loose connections or shorts in the wiring harness. I've had similar strange things happen with an Olds Bravada. Various transmission shifting problems, faults, etc. that all seemed to come from the engine's computer system getting incorrect voltages and readings due to wiring faults/shorts.

Go to START >>> RUN then type msconfig..(click on OK). It should bring up System Configuration window. Go to STARTUP tab then un-tick the entry you think is the DOS Command String. This should disable it from running during startup. Restart the computer.

My HP Photosmart C4280 all in one printer will not print...can you help?


Do/did you get any error messages?
Check that the printer is online and check the printer queue (Devices and Printers in Win7). Try a new USB cable and plugging the printer into a different port. If you have a print server or USB hub, try connecting directly to the computer.

Reset the printer by unplugging it and the USB cable. (If files are built up in the queue and the printer is online, try deleting them. If they don't delete, you need to stop and restart the printer spooler. In any version of Windows from a command prompt window, type "net stop spooler" without the quotes and hit <enter>. On the next line type "net start spooler" again without the quotes and <enter>. Restart the computer.)

Other issues are possible if there are any error messages that you don't mention.

I hope this helps.
