Its seems like you have infected with spy ware of sometype. first of all look at the task bar, I am sure there is a yellow triangle or something similar with a ! mark on it, if try to close it, it wont give you that option. So first of all, turn on windows defender download the updates and run the spyware check. IF this does not help get a antivirus/antispyware s/w and run it. Lets see how that goes.

Disable Notification Balloons in XP

If you are annoyed with Windows popping up a balloon notification telling you things you already know every time you turn on your machine, here is a quick tip on completely disabling them. (Note this requires a registry modification so be sure to back up your registry before making any changes.)

You should note that this will disable all balloon notifications, so proceed with caution.

Click on Start \ Run and type in regedit

Now we will navigate to this path in your registry.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Explorer\Advanced

regballoon20path5b45dbo2.png

On the right pane right click on an open area and choose New \ DWORD Value

registry20dword5b25dgl8.png

You will see New Value #1. Change this to EnableBalloonTips.

regedit20total20linegn9.png

Next double click the new registry entry you created. In the Value Data field set it to 0 (zero). Make sure Hexadecimal is selected under Base. Click OK.

Finally restart your system and enjoy the clean boot up with no balloons popping up at you.

To remove this registry hack, just delete the registry key that you created.

When I boot up the computer a pop-up message says "oovoo has stopped working" and when I go to an internet site, a pop-up states "an error has occurred in the script on this page." ...


Hi,

Try reinstalling the newest version of oovoo from here:

http://www.oovoo.com/Download.aspx

After you reinstall, restart your PC/Computer and the problem should be gone.

If that doesn't work. Uninstall oovoo, reboot your computer, reinstall oovoo, reboot your pc again, and then it should work.

I hope this helps :) Best of luck!

How to use toshiba flash drive 2.0


Follow these steps :
1.1
Plug the flash drive into one of your computer's available USB ports.
2.2
Look for the "Found New Hardware" balloon to pop up in your system tray. When the installation is complete, you can either click the balloon or go to "My Computer" and double-click the flash drive to open it.
3.3
Open the folder containing the data you want to store on the flash drive. Either copy the files and paste them into the flash drive's folder, or drag and drop.
4.4
Click the "safely remove hardware" icon. This is an icon with a green arrow in the system tray in the lower right-hand corner of the screen. When you click it you will see a message that reads "Safely remove USB Mass Storage Device." Click that message box.
5.5
If your flash drive has a light, it will turn off when the drive can be removed. Otherwise, it is safe to remove the drive when the message box goes away. Remove the drive.

2GB (2x1GB) Dell 184pin PC3200 DDR400 DIMM Memory Kit (p/n 311-3483). After I physically install the ram are there any software changes I have to do? Thanks Mario


No software changes to apply. After installing the RAM, boot the computer up. A DOS type screen will pop up stating "The amount of memory has been changed, hit F1 (I believe it is F1) to continue". Continue and you will be on your way to enjoying a much more productive computer!

PS Make sure the 2gb memory has been recognized by right clicking on My Computer and viewing the specs.

Hope this helps!

Need high speed usb driver


Unfortunately, being that you are using USB 1.1 ports, the high speed 2.0 devices cannot be used. They look the same, but are different hardwares. Even if you hook up a USB 2.0 hub to the USB 1.1 port, you are still stuck with USB 1.1 speed.

Sorry to break the bad news. Let me know if there are any more questions regarding this issue.

In fact, you are compromising the security to some degree. And the degree depends on where this driver thing came from. If it is some strange solution from nobody, you'd better don't touch it. While it is bundled with you lexmark printer in a install disc, probably it's no harm at all.
