    what do you mean that you are formatting? Did you buy your mcafee? And do you have your firewall turned on?

I can tell you, delete all that MacAfee and Norton AntiVirus ****. I went to download a keygen once and got a virus, so I downloaded AVG and it works great. What it does is locate where the problem is and takes it out. Go to download.com and search AVG Free 8.0. It will be the one with the 159 million downloads on it. When you set it up, run the whole computer scan and when it brings up the infections then contact me and I'll tell you what to do from there. Because there's a few steps you have to do, but I'm going to my sisters in like 45 minutes as of January 30th, 2009 11:23 Eastern Standard Time. If you e-mail me I can reach you from there with my phone. my e-mail is a_hale16@yahoo.com. And I can help you with this, I've had the same exact problem.

Your files must have been attacked by viruses that your anti virus have removed a file that your computer needs to be able to recognize your files. Or your file format of your directory has been change. You need to create a new directory , sorry for the files it's gone forever, hope you have backup files. Have a nice day friend.

When i start my pc today, i had stop 0x0000007b (0xf9e48528 0xc0000034 0x00000000 0x00000000) i try with chkdsk /r end fixboot but no result.


When you start your computer, you may receive one of the following error messages:
  • STOP: 0x0000007B (parameter1, parameter2, parameter3, parameter4)
    INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE
  • Setup has encountered a fatal error that prevents it from continuing.

    Contact your product support representative for assistance. The following status will assist them in diagnosing the problem.

    (0x4, 0x1, 0, 0)

    Setup cannot continue. Power down or reboot your computer now.
You may also receive a "Stop 0x0000007B" error message during Windows XP Setup when the Setup program restarts during the installation process. When you receive a Stop error while the Setup program is running, you receive the second error message. To troubleshoot this issue, read the following four sections to determine if any one of the issues applies to you. If none of the issues apply to you, use the following general troubleshooting steps at the end of the article. uparrow.gifBack to the top Boot-Sector Viruses You may receive a "Stop 0x0000007B" error message if your computer is infected with a boot-sector virus. If the problem is intermittent and you can start Windows, check your computer for viruses. If you find a virus, also check any floppy disks for viruses before you use them again.

For a list of antivirus software manufacturers, click the following article number to see the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 49500 List of Antivirus Software Vendors Note You may have to use more than one brand of virus-detection software to detect and remove various viruses.

Important If your computer has been infected, it may be open to additional forms of attack. We recommend that you rebuild infected Internet-facing servers by following the guidelines that are published on the CERT Web site. Internet-facing servers are servers that function without a firewall or other protection. It is also a good idea to rebuild any other computers that are at risk because of their proximity to infected computers before you put them back in service.

If a virus has infected your Windows XP-based computer and a virus-detection program cannot remove the virus and repair the system, you must repartition and format your hard disk and reinstall Windows XP. For additional information about partitioning and formatting a hard disk with Windows XP, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 313348 How to partition and format a hard disk in Windows XP For more information about how to help protect the boot sector from viruses in Windows XP, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 122221 How to protect boot sector from viruses in Windows uparrow.gifBack to the top Device Driver IssuesYou may receive a "Stop 0x0000007B" error message in the following scenarios:
  • A device driver that the computer boot controller needs is not configured to start during the startup process.
  • A device driver that the computer boot controller needs is corrupted.
  • Information in the Windows XP registry (information related to how the device drivers load during startup) is corrupted.
Windows XP requires a miniport driver to communicate with the hard disk controller that is used to start your computer. If Windows XP does not supply a device driver for your controller or if Windows XP is using a corrupted or incompatible driver, you must replace the driver with a valid copy that is compatible with your controller and Windows XP.

During the first phase of the Windows XP installation, Setup displays the following message at the bottom of the screen: Press F6 if you have to install a third-party SCSI or RAID driver. Press F6 and then follow the instructions to install a mass-storage device driver from your Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM). For additional information about using F6 to load an OEM device driver to support, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: General Troubleshooting If none of the issues that have been described in this article apply to you, use the following general troubleshooting steps:
  1. If you receive one of these error messages while you are installing Windows XP, update the computer BIOS or obtain Windows XP drivers for your hard disk controller (from the manufacturer of your computer, system board, or hard disk controller), or do both. For information about how to update your computer's BIOS or obtain Windows XP drivers, contact your computer manufacturer. For additional information about the availability of drivers, see the Device Driver Issues section in this article.

    Note: If Windows NT 4.0 or Windows 2000 was installed previously on a mirrored boot partition, see the Other Issues section in this article.
  2. Use the Last Known Good Configuration feature. This may resolve the problem if you recently installed an incompatible device driver for your boot controller. For additional information about using the Last Known Good Configuration feature, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 307852 How To start your computer by using the Last Known Good Configuration feature in Windows XP
  3. Use the Repair option with Windows XP Setup. For additional information about repairing Windows XP by using the Setup program, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 315341 How to perform an in-place upgrade (reinstallation) of Windows XP
  4. Restore a registry backup. For additional information about restoring a registry backup, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 307545 How to recover from a corrupted registry that prevents Windows XP from starting

My grandkids have went to sights, now i get message that someone or something is trying to attack my computer but norton 360 blocked it. My question is I have bought another dell desktop pc and want to put...


Hi,

You don't have to worry about the attack being transferred to the new computer because they will both have a different IP address.

Providing you protect your computer with a good antivirus software like you are already using then you should be fine although no computer is 100% safe from attacks and viruses.

Norton 360 provides decent internet security plus some attacks are dependant on the site you visit. It's all about being vigilant and protecting your computer the best you can.

Nokia N73 support on several niggling problems


Hello there. The anti-virus programs available today for n73 ****, meaning they're almost useless.

What you need to do is format your phone memory. That'll get rid of all viruses stored, and probably fix that "restart" problem you've been having (unless it's a hardware problem). Remove your memory card before you do so first.

To format
  1. turn phone off.
  2. hold the following keys WHILE its turning back on: (3 + * + green call key)
  3. do not let go until it asks you about your location
After you've formatted your phone memory, all viruses will be gone, and it'll be functioning a lot smoother than before.

Next, you've got to scan your memory for viruses by hooking it up to a computer, and then use that computer's anti-virus (has to be updated) to eliminate all those pesky viruses.

Then you could also run a "scan disk" using the computer's "scan disk" feature to make fix any errors on the memory card. You could also choose to defrag the mem card if you like, just to make it respond faster.

As for the loose memory card slot, you're going to have to bring it to a technician to have it fixed. Shouldn't be that expensive.

Or you could put a small piece of tape on it, that is if you feel like getting primitive. :)


Let me know how it goes

Frozen cusor!


I reckon you can still start the computer.  Try to go back to a System Restore point that had the computer functioning well.

Your computer could be under attack from Adaware, Spyware and Malaware or even viruses.  Please get to www.lavasoft.com and download the free version of Ad-Aware to clean up your computer and visit www.grisoft.com to download a Trial version of AVG Antivirus to protect your computer against viruses and you may find that investing in the licenced software may protect your computer against external attacks.  Please dont forget to keep the Ad-Aware updated regularly.
