    HKLM\SECURITY\Policy\Secrets\SAC* 2/7/2007 1:08 PM 0 bytes Key name contains embedded nulls (*)
    HKLM\SECURITY\Policy\Secrets\SAI* 2/7/2007 1:08 PM 0 bytes Key name contains embedded nulls (*)

1997 Sport 4.0l 6 cyl. Where is computer located?

which one, ?
the EFI , ECM/PCM?
its located where the book says
best is to leave it alone, i bet its NOT BAD !
better is to SCAN it, ever heard of scan tools?
all scan tools made work on this car.
in your last post i answered all that. and the FSM book posted.
posted 100 + times, here.....
the engine can fail for spark, (scan it)
the PCM will cut fuel for many reasons,
loss of spark, loss of CMP, loss of CKP sensor pulses.(logic)
if fuel pressure is 0 then there will be no fueling or not spec pressures. if there is no fueling but spark is good the engine will run on test fuel. as you spray fuel.

to answer the question
best is to leave it alone. best of best.
many damage it , fooling with it, (im the guy that fixed them)

My engine light came up with the code p0068 & u0121, any one knows what should i do with that to fix it?

p0068 1. Clear all fault codes, remove intake boot using a rag that has been dampened with carb cleaner clean the throttle bore.

2. Using a full function VW compatible scan tool enter 01 engine management. From there, select basic settings enter block 060. This sets the throttle body adaptation.

3. Start the engine and using the scan tool select measured values, enter block 002 this will display the MAF sensor in gm's per second in field 4. At idle it should be 3 to 5 and at 2500 RPMs, it should be 9-15 and at WOT should be 90 or better. You posted 2 seperate issues. Please, one issue per posting.

Does not pull up any pages. Gives error to Kill or Wait?

Happens for flash sites often. But if its happening e'time. 1. Defrag your hard disk and check for errors. 2. Virtual memory - Adjust for a single partition. The size should be 1.5 x RAM size. 3. Check whether your antivirus scanner/ firewall blocks chrome. Or scans its process too much. 4. Do a deep system scan using a good antivirus solution (they must scan for rootkits).
heck this thread and it will help ya
Thanks for contacting Fixya. Please rate the answer if it helped/ solved your issue.

My pc shows general protection fault

This fault can arise from any number of scenarios. You need to specify what you did prior to the onset of the message. To attempt a solution, you may want to

1. uninstall any software that put it prior to the problem.
2. scan your system for spyware, rootkits, viruses. No telling what these malicious codes can do.

What antispyware do You use?

These are really the best ones:-

Spybot Search and Destroy (Free) -

MalwareBytes (Free but also paid version) -

I did a quick Google on Peoplepal Toolbar and i get this from a spyware warnings site:-

"PeoplePal Toolbar is not a virus or a Trojan. PeoplePal Toolbar is an adware application and may generate extra pop-up ads while using Internet Explorer. This kind of application generally comes bundled with another program, which usually discloses the fact that it is ad-supported."

Just looks like it generates popups - Have a look in Add/Remove programs to see if theres a listing to uninstall it. also , just go to C:/Program Files and find the folder and delete - No coming back for it then!!

My proper solution however , is get a decent security suite program as the one you have is clearly not doing much. Quick analysis below

Norton Internet Security - Slows down system , uses lots of resources

Bitdefender Internet Security - Lightweight , uses hardly any resources , cheap to buy each year , can use 1 subscription on 3 pcs

Kaspersky - Very good protection , one of the best but is quite expensive

Eset Smart Security (formerly Nod32) - My personal recommendation , subscription prices arent bad , it self updates etc , i personally use it and have NEVER had a virus. Bundle this with Spybot search and destroy (which is free) and your computer is unstoppable!! - Well maybe not , but those two are what i use and my system has never had a virus. Sure theres been the odd spyware but spybot always gets rid of it

Reoccurring virus

I am glad i am the first person to see this. Rootkits infect some vital processes. I had one once, but i got rid of it.

Try this. Its free, and it works.

Tivo won't change my TV Channels anymore with direct cable

I re-did the guided setup in the Tivo under Messages & Settings/Restart-Reset System/Restart menu section in Tivo. Once I did that, it cleared this issue, even though I didn't have to change any of my settings thru this guided setup. I tried a reset alone first, but that did not fix it. Only this fixed it. We had lost both power and cable during a recent tree fall in a storm, and when both were restored, this problem started. I have a cable coax directly in the back of the TV (no cable box/IR etc) and the system is on a home wireless network. I actually have 2 identical Tivo's in the house set up the same way but only one had this problem. The other worked no different after the outage.

Shows canceled?

Make sure u have signal on both tuners on the DVR ( check it in your set-up screen). both tuners should have the same siganl strength. Directv's DVRs, if installed correctly, give u the option of recording one channel and watch another, or recording 2 seperate channels( 2 tuners). If you are recording 2 seperate shows and u change the channel one of your recordings will cancel .

Disk space problem in hp dv6000 series


Probably ur system is infected by a rootkit.Search on the net for antiviruses that find out rootkits in the system. Avg 8.0 or Panda 08 can detect rootkits also.
B4 that just deactivate system restore and see whether this solves ur problem.
I had this problem once and this was due to rootkits, but i hav seen sum systems where its due to system restore.
