Go to avast.com and use their on-line scanner and remove. Avast is a good anti-virus program- you can only use 1 anti-virus program on your computer though.

I think I'm hacked. How to remove unknown from system configuration? Unchecking & rebooting didn't do it. desperate!


What do you mean hacked? Can you describe what's happening? I can tell what kind of malware you have if you describe it and we'll fix it based on that. Until then, use http://www.microsoft.com/security/scanner/en-us/default.aspx and run a full system scan for malware.

Those error codes don't really mean very much to the general consumer, but blue screens of deaths are caused by bad RAM memory in your computer, not viruses. I'm going to take a guess that your computer is either several years old and/or it constantly get quite warm? Heat can shorten the life of computer components by quite a bit. You may need to get one of your RAM cards replaced to solve this issue.

There's a free program called Memtest86 that you can run to determine if this is the case. It will scan all your memory and look for bad sectors. You can download it here: http://www.memtest86.com/ and burn it to a CD. What it does is create a bootable CD that will execute the program as the computer turns on to scan all the memory. There are full instructions on their website. The process can take an hour or two depending on how much memory your computer has, and if it turns up any bad sectors then you know what your problem is.

A computer can run with bad sectors in the memory, but it makes it unstable that it will keep bluescreening, so if you have bad sectors in your memory it might be better just to replace the RAM. Luckily, this isn't too expensive. For instance, if your computer has 4GB of memory, it probably has 2 2GB RAM cards installed. You can get a 2GB replacement notebook memory for, I'd say $30 or $40. Installing RAM is very simple, and if you're willing to install it yourself, it won't cost you more than that.

Can use with windows 98 se ?


Microsoft no longer supports Windows 98 or 98SE or NT.
Microsoft no longer supports Windows 2000 (as of last month).

If you connect a Windows 98 system to the Internet, you're likely to get virus-infected.

So, just "forget" about trying it. Also, Windows 98 probably will lack device-drivers for audio/video/network components in the Toshiba computer.

I have a acer 5610 i dont have the start-up disk, id like it to be like new, can you help me.


go buy a new op sys cd or order the restore cd online. you can setup fresh with any windows cd and go online and get the rest of the drivers but you may lose everything on it unless you are experienced in setting up a new op sys. if you opt to do it that way just dont delete the partition or format anything and you will have a new op sys with all your stuff right where it was.

Hi ive got an old laptop running on windows 98 i have a reboot disc but no windows file cd an it wont start up any advice other than bin it.


You may be able to install one of the Linux distributions on the machine to garner a few more years use from it. Go online and search for a distro that will support the type of hardware you have. Since Win-98 is no longer supported by Microsoft, getting replacements are impossible.

Linux is a very robust and stable operating system that supports all kinds of hardware. A big bonus is it is FREE and there are LOTS of free apps available that will do almost anything you want to do.

Boot error stop 0x00000024, (0x00190203, etc ....


Here is a write up regarding the STOP code 0x24 complements of http://aumha.org:

0x00000024: NTFS_FILE_SYSTEM
(Click to consult the online MSDN article.)
A problem occurred within NTFS.SYS, the driver file that allows the system to read and write to NTFS file system drives. There may be a physical problem with the disk, or an Interrupt Request Packet (IRP) may be corrupted. Other common causes include heavy hard drive fragmentation, heavy file I/O, problems with some types of drive-mirroring software, or some antivirus software. I suggest running ChkDsk or ScanDisk as a first step; then disable all file system filters such as virus scanners, firewall software, or backup utilities. Check the file properties of NTFS.SYS to ensure it matches the current OS or SP version. Update all disk, tape backup, CD-ROM, or removable device drivers to the most current versions.

Here is an article from MS regarding the recovery console http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314058.

Another option you have is putting the HDD into another system and running chkdsk and defrag from the good system.

Missing or corrupted file C:\windows\himem.sys


If you are running Windows 95, Windows 98, type:
copy himem.sys c:\windows <press enter>
If when typing any of the above commands you receive a prompt that the file already exists, ensure to overwrite it.
Reboot the computer; if the issue continues to occur, verify that the config.sys is properly setup. The line himem.sys should read:
DEVICE=C:\Windows\HIMEM.SYS
or
DEVICE=C:\DOS\HIMEM.SYS
Additional information and examples of the config.sys can be found on our autoexec.bat / config.sys page.

No boot up


Solution :
  • Run chkdsk /r or chkdsk /f to detect and resolve any file system structural damage.
  • After you use the Chkdsk tool to repair the corrupted NTFS volume, rename %SystemRoot%\System32\Drivers\Ntfs.old to Ntfs.sys, and then shut down and restart the computer.
  • Try disabling any virus scanning programs, backup programs, or disk defragmenter tools that constantly monitor your computer.
  • Run any system diagnostics that are supplied by your computer manufacturer, especially a HDD check.
