Security warning keeps popping

To suggest a workable solution, we request you to furnish some more details on your issue like:
1) What is the exact security warning you are getting?
2) Do you get it only when using internet? Or it pops up even when not using internet?
3) Does it pop-up only when running a specific application/ website?
4) Is the security warning popped up by your security software (if any)? Or you are getting it through Windows itself?
5) Which version of Windows are you using?

In the meanwhile, we request you to scan your system thoroughly (if you have not done this already) to detect and get rid of infections (if any). Also, if you are getting the warning while running any third-party application, you can check if the application is compatible with your Windows version and then, try uninstalling and reinstalling it (if it is compatible). To check compatibility of the application, you can refer to its user guide/ installation guidelines.

I have a hp pavillion xt966 tower that i want to use but i don't know what connections go where.

Pretty self explanatory, the only ports that you can mix up is the keyboard and mouse. Its actually marked if you look closely at rear panel.

My Vostro 220 Mini towere lock's up and restarts at random times!

Since Windows is giving the "recover" error, it is most likely a software issue. Open a "run" dialog box from the start menu and type in the following "eventvwr.msc /s" (without the quotes). This will open the event viewer. What you want to look for in here are errors in the logs that are created in the Application and System logs. Warnings are not important at this time, but the errors will help to locate the offending code. It could be a corrupted driver or a litany of other things. Let me know what you find. Feel free to explore the options in the event viewer as well as clicking on any links that are in the desription of the problems as these will take you to possible solutions from Microsoft.

Dimension 3000 keeps freezing

Sounds to me like the hard drive might be going bad. Bad sectors on the hard drive can cause the freezing to happen.

If you have a spare known working hard drive, put that one into the system and then install windows xp on it and see what happens.

If that doesn't do it then try each memory stick one at a time in each slot one at a time and see if the freezing goes away. If it does then you know its a memory stick problem.

Also unseat and reseat the CPU into the slot and make sure there is not dust or dirt in the socket that the CPU sits in.

After all of this if you still have freeze up problems then the motherboard is bad.

My Emachine is only 2-3 yr's old now & I have never had sound. It was the cheapest one & on sale. I must have chose one that did not have a sound board. I can not put in a sound board by myself...

Are you sure there is no onbaord sound it should look like microphone or headphone socket holes. If it does then you are needing the correct driver. Open the tower and check what motherboard you ahve then post again for the correct driver.

If there is no sound onboard then it is very simple to install a pci soundcard anf they are very cheap. I certainly wouldn't go buying a new tower for just sound. Google on installing a pci card and you will see how easy it actually is or ask a young friend they know heaps about computers.

Tower sounds like a siren but won't come on.

Strange indeed. Typically the only power left in a system after it is unplugged in older systems is a small battery that keeps the BIOS information. Maybe your system has it set up to warn you through the tiny system speaker that this battery is dead. If it is then the system can't start up...just as you reported.

Any other information would be helpful in diagnosing this problem.

Every time I try and install incredimail it stops and I get this message the application failed to initialize properly (0x0000135). Click OK to terminate the application.Can you please help me....

The application failed to initialize (0x0000135). Click to terminate. Solution: Your PC is missing the Microsoft .NET framework

I actually do not know who is responsible for this solution but I can't really take credit for it.

who ever they are , they are intelligent enough to know what an error code is and what to do about it
I commend them.

Another suggestion is to make sure you install not only .NET 1.0 , but that you install 2.0
