This is a symptom of spyware on your computer. There are only two good free pieces of software that might be able to help. Lavasoft AdAware 2008 and SpyBot Search and Destroy. all other free software that says it can remove spyware most likely will put more spyware on the computer. The two above pieces of software are the only spyware removal tools I trust.

Problem in driver or installer of any type of computer hardware and peripherals


if you are experiencing problem in drivers or installers of your hardwares,
just for example : printers, cameras, scanners, motherboards, sound cards, video cards, lan cards, etc.

this is a tip that sure can help you...

first of all you need to know what si the brand of the hardware..

2nd what model, code, or something specific for that hardware...

after you get the above information you can now go to your pc or laptop that has internet connection... and try to search for it.. be specific first..

for example a4tech camera model PK-635m

type the word "a4tech Pk-635m driver" in google search then click search..

there will be many results as usual but you can choose exactly the right one on that situation..

just take a good look of the website under the highlighted hyperlink text..
if it is the site of the brand you need.. it will surely has your driver..
like for example a4tech their site is www.a4tech.com

in different situations like you know the brand but you don't know the model,

you can search for the brand site, and inside of it you can search for the products that are advertised by them..
try to look to it if you can see your product..

another situation,

you search for the driver and you don't see any links for your hardware brand.. if you are very sure for what type of product you were searching you can try some of the links that saying they have a driver of your product..but take note you always bare in your mind to search for a direct download link, or a mirror link, or a button that specifying for your product. not the one that is just advertising a new scanning hardware...or new hardware updater...

but if you really don't see anything you can directly ask here in fixya for your problem, and i'm sure many of technician like me will offer a free help for you...

i hope i had added a new technique for searching a hardware driver..

Great Google Secrets


Google is clearly the best general-purpose search engine on the web.

But most people don't use it to its best advantage. Do you just plug in a keyword or two and hope for the best? That may be the quickest way to search, but with more than 3 billion pages in Google's index, it's still a struggle to pare results to a manageable number.

But Google is an remarkably powerful tool that can ease and enhance your Internet exploration. Google's search options go beyond simple keywords, the Web, and even its lesser-known options.

Syntax Search Tricks
Using a special syntax is a way to tell Google that you want to restrict your searches to certain elements or characteristics of web pages. Google has a fairly complete list of its syntax elements at www.google.com/help/operators.html

Here are some advanced operators that can help narrow down your search results.

Intitle: at the beginning of a query word or phrase (intitle:"Three Blind Mice") restricts your search results to just the titles of web pages.

Intext: does the opposite of intitle:, and so forth.
Intext: is perfect when what you're searching for might commonly appear in URLs. If you're looking for the term HTML, for example, and you don't want to get results such as www.mysite.com/index.html.

Link: lets you see which pages are linking to your web page or to another page you're interested in. For example, try typing in link:http://www.mysite.com.

Try using site: (which restricts results to top-level domains) with intitle: to find certain types of pages. For example, get scholarly pages about Mark Twain by searching for intitle:"Mark Twain"site:edu. Experiment with mixing various elements; you'll develop several strategies for finding the stuff you want more effectively. The site: command is very helpful as an alternative to the mediocre search engines built into many sites.

Swiss Army Google
Google has a number of services that can help you accomplish tasks you may never have thought to use Google for. For example, the new calculator feature (www.google.com/help/features.html#calculator) lets you do both math and a variety of conversions from the search box. For extra fun, try the query "Answer to life the universe and everything."

Let Google help you figure out whether you've got the right spelling-and the right word-for your search. Enter a misspelled word or phrase into the query "Answer to life the universe and everything."

Let Google help you figure out whether you've got the right spelling-and the right word-for your search. Enter a misspelled word or phrase into the query box (try"three blind mice") and Google may suggest a proper spelling. This doesn't always succeed; it works best when the word you're searching for can be found in a dictionary. Once you search for a properly spelled word, look at the results page, which repeats your query. (If you're searching for "three blind mice," underneath the search window will appear a statement such as Searched the web for "three blind mice." You'll discover that you can click on each work in your search phrase and get a definition from a dictionary.

Suppose you want to contact someone and don't have his phone number handy. Google can help you withb that, too. Just enter a name, city, and state. If a phone number matches the listing, you'll see it at the top of the search results along with a map link to the address. If you'd rather restrict your results, use phonebook: for residential listing or phonebook: for business listings. If you'd rather use a search form for business phone listings, try Yellow Search (www.buzztoolbox.com/google/yellowsearch.shtml).

Extended Googling
Google offers several services that give you a head start in focusing your search. Google Groups (http://groups.google.com).

Indexes literally millions of messages from decades of discussion on Usenet. Google even helps you with your shopping via two tools: Froogle
CODE (http://froogle.google.com),

Which indexes products from online stores, and Google Catalogs
CODE (http://catalogs.google.com),

which features products from more 6,000 paper catalogs in a searchable index. And this only scratches the surface. You can get a complete list of Google's tools and services at www.google.com/options/index.html.

You're probably used to using Google in your browser. But have you ever thought of using Google outside your browser?

Google Alert
monitors your search terms and e-mails you information about new additions to Google's web index. (Google Alert is not affiliated with Google; ti uses Google's Web services API to perform its searches.) If you're more interested in news stories than general web content, check out the beta version of Google News Alerts.

More Google API Applications

Staggernation.com offers three tools based on the Google API. The Google API Web Search by Host (GAWSH) lists the Web hosts of the results for a given query (www.staggernation.com/gawsh/).

when you click on the triangle next to each host, you get a list of results for that host. The Google API Relation Browsing Outliner (GARBO) is a little more complicated: You enter a URL and choose whether you want pages that related to the URL or linked to the URL (www.staggernation.com/garbo/).

Click on the triangle next to an URL to get a list of pages linked or related to that particular URL. CapeMail is an e-mail search application that allows you to send an e-mail to google@capeclear.com with the text of your query in the subject line and get the first ten results for that query back. Maybe it's not something you'd do everyday, but if you cell phone does e-mail and doesn't do web browsing, this is a very handy address to know.

Good luck!

I am getting message when attempting to open links, "Server not found"?


Email links is when you are getting this message or is it when you try to open an internet browser to go to any web page?

If you're on the internet successfully and you are clicking a email link, then I would say the link is bad. You can type the address of the email provider and see if you can get there successfully. If you don't know the address just go to www.google.com and in the search box type your email provider. Example: Yahoo Mail or Google Mail,or GMail or Hotmail.

Open Internet Explorer then type www.google.com in the address bar to go to Google. In the google search box you need to type your computer's manufacturer's name followed by support. For example if your computer is made by HP then type HP Support. Look for drivers and downloads from the manufacture's site and click the link. Once on the site you will have to type in your computer model number (Ex. HP Pavilion ZE2000) and the Operating System. Download and install the Audio Drivers that it shows you for your system.

My internet explorer keeps comint up with a connection error when I try to go to certain websites, (example, www.ls1tech.com). I can't seem to figure out why, when I can see the web site on another...


if it worked before, it can be your internet connection. check and make sure you have internet connectivity, then try to delete browsing history. Click the Safety menu at upper-right portion of Internet Explorer, then click Delete Browsing History. Then close and re-open Internet Explorer and try a simple site like www.google.com to test if it works. If not, click Tools on Internet Explorer, click Internet Options. Go to its Advanced tab and click Reset button, restart your browser and test it again. Hope this would be helpful in your situation. cheers!

I answered the security question with the name of my highschooland it keeps telling me invalid answer why?


a few reasons is possible, some sites are case sensitive when it comes to answer questions. Example say if your highschool was named "example" but your typing it in as "Example" because of the capsized E. you can throw it off, as well make sure that you didnt add any publication when you answered it the first time like "example." if your still having issues go to the site that your having issues with and see if that company has a "contact us" link. Then you will have to contact them and ask them to reset your password for you.

Motherboard


Allright I'll try to make it simple, but it's a tricky way wich works all the time.
First I tried to check out their site, because I didn't hear about these guys nowdays, but could't find their site, this site shows tehir contact details, but both sites are down and there's anything but a motherboard manufacturer's site at it's links. Hope you know their real website address.
You can try to open up the Case and search for the biggest sign on the moterboard, but let's say that they didn't because sometimes they forget to put a sign.
Somethimes they give you a splashscreen by default and whan system is booting up it's showing you till windows starts to load, if you don't have that maybe you disabled it in the bios, or if it's nowhere than our little mission is starting to go serious.
Next best try is to try out CPU-Z, just extract the zip in to a folder and start the program, you should run it as administrator, because it's searching deep in your computer for you, after a few secs of loading the program starts and you can see the mainboard type in the mainboard tab.
Let's say that it can't tell you your motherboard type than if you have the chipset shown just go to the chipset manufacturer's site go to their support or driver download site and search for it.
It could be mostly Intel, VIA, Sis, Nvidia Nforce, but if it's something else just google it.
If you have some extra problems because your sound card, or lan card or whatever is missing it's driver as well, because it's integrated on to the motherboard and windows update can't help you out with it, or it's driver is a crappy one than what you need is Lavasys Everest, just install it and start it.
Go to devices/windows devices.
I know it looks much like windows device manager, but it's not that, it's better.
Select the device wich has a question mark or you don't know it for sure, but you know that it needs a driver. copy the 'Hardware ID' and use google to find out what is it, than go to the chipmanufacturer's page and get the driver from their support.

Like for example:
If you figure out, there's a Realtek HD audio chip on your motherboard search for realtek on google, you'll find out that their site is "www.realtek.com.tw".
On their site go to downloads in that section all you need is to know what you are looking for, in this case it's:
HOME > Downloads > Computer Peripheral ICs > PC Audio Codecs > High Definition Audio Codecs >
And you can download the specific driver for your OS.


Easy as that and it works all the time.

Hope this will help you out

Regards
Imre
