The data manager has stopped working What must I do?

no OS stated, is the XP ??? how can any one help lacking 1/2 the facts. OS is 1/2 of 530..... cica 2007 built?
it's a addware browser bar added(infection) to your browser (attack)

are you using IE?, we can not guess which of 100 browers you uses. IE is internet explorer. (exploder)
1: solition 1 is clean the BHO off your browers IE.
IE 5,6,7,8,9,10,11, which one,? each has different cures.
the cure is using only new browsers. that block, BHO attacks.
BHO= browser helper objects (pain I call them)
2: solution 2, install free firefox v55 and up.
cured. in 4min work , IE obandoned....
3: use other browser < opera?
4: If running windows 7, ( are you as you should) then load IE11

do not run XP, its a virus magnet, if you must run XP (why?)
then add SP3 service pack then upgrade to IE8 now....!
warning many web sites no lonter support BELOW IE9
and IE up do not run on XP period. so... bad news there.
cure is stay the h3ll off IE. period.

read and weep.. this.,,?

now vista.
vista in the USA is now below .45% (2016 data) and falling like a brick. why use VISTA there is no support on vista.
but what if YOU MUST.
1: load service pack 2 SP2,at
2: then load IE9, next not before, it it fails.
now the browser is way more safe.
but still packed solid in exploits and will not ever be patched or fixed ever again. never use IE at all, (IE11 on W7 up sure)
use firefox. v55 for free.
3: run AVG free on VISTA, they still support it. at least for now.
4: run malwarebytes for free, and scan this PC for malware.
5: use the programs add remove feature in control panel
and remove those nasty programs that took over your BROWSER.

if all this seems hard? (and is)
why not do the HP reset. called HP recovery
boot the PC, (push power on button) the hammer the F11 key
this is the magic HP recovery key
the pick recover whole OS , what ever came new
the PC is reset back to Day 1.
back up data first..... your data......

next time tell what OS you run.
we cant guess them ever,
some run linux on this PC, (wiser)

Win 98 recovery used instead of win xp sp2. computer won't start, shows win 98 screen and stops

win XP will not use anything from a win98 program. If XP is installed you must either use the recovery discs or better, the original XP disc.

There are no drivers for what you want and the win xp has not been supported for a long time

I have notebook Compaq 6715b with Windows XP (no SP2). Sound doesnt work. drivers from HP official site not working


trust me, the fault is from the win xp SP2. I am saying this with confidence and out of experience. Except if the audio drivers you downloaded is for win vista.

While running the Win xp, some files make have skipped/not installed which is making the sound not to work. Or maybe you have initially installed a wrong audio driver.

To solve this problem. you have to re-run the win xp, if possible, use another xp Cd, maybe not Sp2.

After installation, let the audio driver be the fist thing you install.

Take care.
