Microsoft ActiveSync Connection Manager Crashes Windows

WinXPsp3home ...ALL versions of M$ ActiveSync crash windows immediately (shuts and reboots with ''recovered from serious error'' message) when the pulldown ''get connected'' is selected.  This worked previously.  I have rolled back 2 weeks to no avail.  I have uninstalled and reinstalled ad nauseum in windows and in safe mode.  I have tried clean install of version 4.5 as far back as version 3.51 and nothing works.  I am very sad about this and cannot seem to find any posts anywhere to fix this!  I used RegCure (supposed to work best) and CCCleaner (also rated well) to see if the registry is the problem...no better.  I searched the registry for errors that might ''look'' bad to the novice; can't seem to ID any troubles.  What can I do?

    what, pray tell, would shorting the "leads (leads=leds)" on the power cable acomplish?  I would, if this is a true approach of value, appreciate a pointer to some reference material showing this to be a buona-fide method applicable to a PC?

    this will discharge any extra capacitance in the usb port and it will work again. you only short them for a little time, once you plug the cable back in, they're not shorted obviously.

Windows 7 crash on windows is loading when i boot


If you can boot to safe mode, but do not get anything on the screen, try pressing CTRL+SHIFT+ESC to bring up task manager. See if anything is running. If you don't have anything, it could be that you need to start explorer.exe. You may need to pull your hard drive, backup your files and reload the OS.

PC crashes when i switch user


reboot to safe mode using f8 right before the windows logo screen at boot comes on. after on this, run a virus and spyware removal program. i recommend www.superantispyware.com for this.

this problem is mostlikely due to a virus or spyware. If all else fails, put your windows xp cd in and when this loads, select install windows then let it detect installed windows. select "repair" as your option for a repair reinstall, this will fix damaged or mising windows files.

PC keeps shutting down and then re-boots automatically about every 20 minutes .


Shut it down.
Remove the power-cord.
Buy a can of compressed air ($3 to $5).
Remove the side panel(s).
Hold the can of air vertically (do not tilt it),
and blow away the dust from everywhere: inside the power-supply,
between the "blades" on the heat-sink & fan on top of the CPU.

Replace the side panels.
Reconnect the power.
Start it up.
Click Start
Right-mouse click on My Computer
Choose Properties
Choose Advanced.
Under "Startup and Recovery", click "Settings".
Click to disable "Reboot Automatically".
The next time that it crashes, what error-messages _stay_ on the screen?
