Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition

1 Answer

20-60 windows pop up?

When I start the computer and then click on any program/application that will come up on my computer about 15-60 times. With one click I will probably get about 20 windows and when I double click.. well it's more. When I go to the start menu my mouse will click automatically on anything the cursor is over. The strange thing is I have figured out how stop this from happening. Before I click on anything when I first start up the computer I hit any key on my keyboard and then the mouse starts working perfectly, everything is back to normal. I have scanned with mcafee (nothing comes up), avg, privacy guard, adaware. I found a few tracking cookies on avg but I think they are harmless. Thanks for any help! (:

    just to clarify when I switched the mouse it did the same thing as before. The mouse works but still does funny stuff as before. Not literally the mouse did not work. Sorry bad communication. I am trying that link you gave me.

I want remove geniune from my desktob


Microsoft has created an application that checks your Windows operating system to see if the copy of Windows you are using is genuine. If it is not, the application launches a "Genuine Microsoft Software Notification" pop-up alerting you that "This copy of Windows is not genuine." This has a purpose. However, many users have reported being flooded with the pop-up notification even when the copy of Windows they are using is genuine. If this happens to you, you can remove the genuine Microsoft software notification. Note that the instructions below apply to the Windows 7 operating system.

Press "Ctrl"+"Alt"+"Delete." Click on "Start Task Manager." The Windows Task Manager opens. Click on the "Processes" tab. Click on "wgatray.exe" and then click "End Process." Restart your computer. Press F8 continually while your computer is booting. The Advanced Boot Options menu will appear. Click on "Safe Mode" in the Advanced Boot Options menu. Click on the "Start" menu and then click on the "Search Programs and Files" box. Search for and delete the following files: (To delete a file, right-click on the file and select "Delete.") "C:\Windows\System32\WgaTray.exe"
"C:\Windows\System32\dllcache\WgaTray.exe" Click on the "Start" menu and type "regedit" into the "Search Programs and Files" box and press "Enter." The Windows Registry Editor opens. Locate the following registry entry in the Windows Registry Editor and delete it. To delete a registry entry, right-click on it and select "Delete." "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Notify\WgaLogon"

    Yahoo messenger standalone won't install


    Is this the first time installing it on your computer?

    If not, Have you tried deleting cookies, temporary files, and everything in temp folder? Remove any folders or files of Yahoo Messenger and try again.

    If this is the first time, or if that didn't work, maybe try shutting off your firewall before you install it.

    hope this helps!
