There are Spyware/malware resulting to this kind of behavior. You can remove your System Disk to another system that have antispiware up-to-date database. Kaspersky or AVG Internet Security are very effective.
Or else Im afraid you will need to format you OS drive to eradicate virus and malwares and reinstall the OS

Error 815


First you have to make sure you should have working internet connection. Error 815 mostly related to ISP side so suggest you to contact ISP first.
You can also try below steps if ISP says everything is fine.

If the connection can be established by using other device/system, please create a new administrator account on the Windows Vista machine to troubleshoot the issue:


1.Click Start > type user account and click the User Accounts control panel.

2.In the User Account control panel, click Manager another account.

3.Click Create a new account, type an account name > select Administrator and then click Create Account.

4.Logoff and logon with the new account and try to establish the connection to check if the issue persists.

To disable all unwanted start up items in vista, please follow the mentioned steps-

Or, if you're already logged into Vista as an administrator, you may see a box asking you if you would like to continue.

4. Once you have successfully passed through Microsoft's User Account Control roadblock, Vista will launch Microsoft's System Configuration Utility. Click on the Startup tab.
vista_msconfig.gif
4. This takes you to a page with a list of "startup items." Startup items are programs that are automatically loaded every time you turn on your computer. Some startup programs are absolutely necessary, others are simply a waste of RAM.

Please uncheck the ones that you don't want.

Try This..

Warning If you use an administrator account to reset the password, you will permanently lose access to any e‑mail messages or encrypted files that are on that account.
Note These steps cannot be completed on Windows Vista Starter, Windows Vista Home Basic, and Windows Vista Home Premium.
  1. Log on to the administrator account that you will use to reset the forgotten password.
  2. Open Local Users and Groups by clicking the Start button , typing lusrmgr.msc into the Search box, and then pressing ENTER. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
  3. Double-click Local Users and Groups, and then click Users.
  4. Right-click the account that you need to reset the password for, and then click Set Password.

Gateway NV52 Laptop charger sound.


I don't know if this will work with Vista but in Windows 7 you can go to the speaker icon in the taskbar and click on the icon above the volume control. This will take you to the sound properties. Click the levels tab and mute the PC speaker. This worked for me.

Explore won't open in Vista (not IE, I mean windows file explorer)


Hi,

Most likely a damaged or altered registry entry. Clicks start and type
'regedit' and hit <enter>. Expand the keys at left to reach:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

Click on this key, then locate the shell string in the right pane. Double
click it, replace the contents with just:

explorer.exe

Click ok, then close the registry editor and reboot.

This will resolve the issue.

Good Luck.

Live, Love, Laugh.
