Hi, my laptop gives the continous message of "Relevant Knowledge" has stopped working" How do i resolve this?


  1. The removal of Relevant Knowledge is pretty simple compared to other forms of spyware/adware. First, go to the Start Menu.

  2. 2

    Select Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs. For Vista users, select Control Panel -> Uninstall a Program (it's in small print under Programs). Search for Relevant Knowledge in the list.

  3. 3

    Single-click on RelevantKnowledge, and click Uninstall up near the top. It will take you through the process, thus ridding you of your spyware.

  4. 4

    Next, open your Task Manager by pressing Ctrl+Alt+Delete once. This will either open your Task Manager, or give you the option to open Task Manager. Make sure Relevant Knowledge is not on the list - if it is, End Process.

  5. 5

    Restart your computer. Relevant Knowledge should be gone! If it isn't gone, try this process over again.

I have lost ALL of my taskbars!! How do I get them back?


A program called explorer.exe controls the display of your taskbar and desktop icons. If for some reason it goes missing (you may have killed it using Task Manager, for example, or something more sinister like a virus has deleted it from your processes), then try this first:
  1. Open Task Manager (press Ctrl+Alt+Del, then click Task Manager).
  2. On the Applications tab, click New Task at the bottom right of the window.
  3. Type explorer.exe, then click OK.
If nothing sinister caused it to disappear, it should all come back as it was and you can stop panicking, breathe a sigh of relief, and continue working.
If that doesn't work, then try this:
  1. Open Task Manager (press Ctrl+Alt+Del, then click Task Manager).
  2. Go to the Processes tab.
  3. Click on the Image Name column header to sort the list alphabetically.
  4. Find all explorer.exe processes - select each, then click End Process for each one.
  5. On the Applications tab, click New Task at the bottom right of the window.
  6. Type explorer.exe, then click OK.
Are you using snagit, try to uninstall it and then check if you still get the errors. If you donot use snagit then there would be another error.

If you cant access control panel use the "Windows Key+R" on the keyboard which opens the run dialog and type in 'sysdm.cpl' which opens the control panel.
You could also try to restore you windows using System Restore and select a date of the backup when the computer was working well.

Make sure you do a complete virus scan with a good antivirus with updated virus definitions as it could be a virus too.

My cat walked on my keyboard and now I can't stop the voice. Everything I type gets spoken out loud


Hi,
Looks like your cat has activated the windows narrator feature on your PC.

To turn it off, click on Start, then click on all programs, then click Accessories,then open Accessiblity, then open Narrator. It will be shown as running, click on stop and close the window.

Also, you can turn it off from the Task Manager. To open task manager, right -click on the taskbar, select Task Manager, under Processes Tab you will find utilman.exe. Right-click on utilman.exe, then select End Process, select Yes from the next announcement window, then close the Task Manager.

Hope this solves your problem. Thanks.

Removal of win32mode of hard drives


While researching this problem, it seems that the most likely cause is a virus called FUNNY UST SCANDAL.....it is mostly an annoyance, not too evil, they say.

Please back up your data!

Some people recommend using a noob killer program to kill the virus, but when searching online for one, I come up with very sketchy sites, use at your own risk!

Others have recommended the following site for answers:
http://www.edmartechguide.com/2007/11/funny-ust-scandal-aviexe-remover.html

Then there are these anti virus programs to try, one is free, other a trial, both good:
http://www.eset.com/download/free_trial_download_eav.php

http://www.avast.com/eng/download-avast-home.html

FINALLY.......I found a jumble of instructions to try to fix the problem, and they are as follows.
I have not had this problem myself, but it looks like a messy one, good luck!



Go to Start/Run and type :

reg.exe add "HKCRDriveshell" /ve /d "none" /f

then type:

regsvr32 shell32.dll

If this doesn't work - try this
