Had this just happened or an ongoing problem? If this is the first time, just restart your computer and the problem should resolve itself.

My Microsoft explrer7 tells me that I cant use the web page and freezes and stopped the computer from working help! L S


This is usually down to the version of explorer which is no longer supported and is the max you can use if you are still using windows XP, you would either have to update to a later operating system (Vista or later ) and update to latest version of explorer or try using Firefox which still supports XP for the moment.

Free PC Firewalls that work.


This is a very simplified guide only to Commercial Quality Free Firewalls.
A lot of us already know about these, but it's intended for those of us who don't.

I will post other Tips about other highly rated Free Security Programs depending on the responses here.

Before you decide, just bear in mind that no software suits everyone or every PC or OS. There are also personal likes, dislikes,foibles and resource usage issues that will no doubtedly please or irk some people here. It's a guide only.

These reviewed free utilities are all similarly rated and are a good contender for equalling or even exceeding some of the top rated paid commercial software.

Most Firewalls are renowned for their annoying chatter. Those screens you see with warnings such as "Do you......." or "Firewall Needs.........." etc. This is what they are supposed to do. Some chatter may be just a bit too much for the average PC user to cope with and you may opt for a less aggressive, but less secure or less configurable Firewall. That's a personal thing that each of us needs to decide.

I simplified and reviewed 3 out of the top few contenders, tho there may be other similarly good or bad ones in your opinion.

Comodo Security Suite (includes optional Antivirus)
32 bit and 64 bit bit compatible - Yes. Separate downloads.
HIPS protection - Yes
Ease of use - 5/10. Should improve after learning curve
Overall Protection - 9+/10 (user error not included)
Resource usage - One of the highest, but expected with this type of performance.
User configuration - 8/10 after learning curve.
Updates - Auto or Manual
Exceeds the performance requirements of paid commercial products.
Can be very daunting and extremely annoying for first time users.
An excellent and huge help file is included that should be read thoroughly.
Not recommended if you are annoyed easily or a bit lazy to read the seemingly initial constant chatter.
http://personalfirewall.comodo.com/download_firewall.html

Online-Armour Free
32 bit and 64 bit compatible - Yes for Vista and W7. XP is 32bit only.
HIPS protection - Yes
Ease of use - 7/10 after learning curve.
Overall Protection - 9/10 (user error not included)
Resource usage - A bit less than Comodo
User configuration - 5/10. There's some questionable user configured disabling features and software installer annoyances that may turn some users off this, otherwise it is excellent.
Updates - Auto or Manual
Similar to the performance requirements of paid commercial products but with some items locked out in the free version. Chatter is still annoying, but not as aggressive as Comodo
online-armor-free.php">http://www.tallemu.com/products-online-armor-free.php

PC Tools Firewall Plus
32 bit and 64 bit compatible - Yes. For Vista and W7. XP is 32 bit only.
HIPS protection - Yes
Ease of use - 6/10. Help is very sparse.
Overall protection - 8/10 (user error not included)
Resource usage - Noticeably less than the above
User configuration - 4/10. The minimal help may be an issue and some items are only available in paid version. Ads in Free version can be annoying.
Updates - Auto or manual
Nearly as good as paid commercial products. Still has chatter you need to put up with.

How to fix error code. STOP: 0x0000C1F5


This issue occurs because the Common Log File System (Clfs.sys) driver does not fix the $TxfLog file when the file is corrupted. In addition to the Stop error message, Windows Vista may not start during startup until the offending disk is removed from the computer.
Support for Windows Vista without any service packs installed ended on April 13, 2010. To continue receiving security updates for Windows, make sure you're running Windows Vista with Service Pack 2 (SP2).
To fix this allow Microsoft Windows to update you to the latest service pack.

I am trying to set up internet spoke to customer service at belkin who advice i need to remove firewall how do i do that please


If it is windows firewall go to Control Panel >> Security Centre >> Windows firewall.

If it is a software installed firewall, for example Norton Internet Security, open the control panel for the application, usually clicking on the small picture from the firewall software near to the clock, and stop the firewall (disable).

I need to up grade my windows 2000 to windows xp


First you need to make sure that your computer meets the following specifications:
- 300 MHz (or higher processor)
- Intel Pentium/Celeron or AMD K6/Athlon/Duron compatible processor.
- 128 MB of RAM (or higher)
- 1.5 Gigabytes of available hard disk space
- Super VGA (800 x 600) or higher resolution video adapter and monitor.

I am sure that your computer likely meets all of these requirements, but I posted them to save you the grief if by chance it does not meet one of the above!

In a moment I will post a link to a website where you can purchase an upgrade to Microsoft Windows XP home edition (Service Pack 2).

Once you have the software, start up windows 2000 and place the disk into the CDROM drive. You should be given an option to upgrade to XP. (make sure you start the disk while you are on the Windows 2000 desktop with all programs closed). After XP is installed if your computer does not have an Antivirus program installed, I strongly recommend either installing Norton Antivirus or AVG. AVG is free and can be downloaded from http://www.avg.com/. Then make sure that your windows firewall is turned on. (It should be automatically) After this go to Microsoft.com and download service pack 3 and any additional updates needed.

The upgrade version of Windows XP home with service pack 2 can be purchased from newegg.com by clicking on this link: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16837116194.

I hope that this information has been helpful to you. Please let me know if you have any other questions!

Keep gatting error code 80073715 on windows update!


Hello,

You can try the following and it should clear it up.

Rename the SoftwareDistribution folder in C:windows (it will be recreated next time you visit Windows Update again)
You will lose your history but that's not important.
If the above step doesnt clear it up continue below:
Click Start, Choose Run.
In the Run box, type services.msc.
Click OK.
Right-click the Automatic Updates service. ( with Vista it may read Windows
Update)
Click Stop.
Stopping the service will take a moment.

Rename the "SoftwareDistribution" folder:
a. Click Start, click Run, type %systemroot%, and then click OK.
b. Right-click the SoftwareDistribution folder, and then click Rename.
c. Type SoftwareDistribution.old, and then press ENTER to rename this folder.

Click Start. Choose Run.
In the Run box, type services.msc.
Click OK.
Right-click the Automatic Updates service.
Click Start.
Starting the service will take a moment.

Retry Windows Update before reading further.

If you need to reinstall the ActiveX controls (because they may have become
corrupt):-

Follow this article (the article is listed the download for the old client) -
The Windows Update Web site and the Microsoft Update Web site do not scan
for updates when
you repair a failed installation of Windows XP Service Pack 2 or of Windows
XP Service
Pack 1
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/916259

Note: WU Client 3.0 - Windows Update Agent

My modem router will not let my windows update (Berkin) what can I do about it & how?


Are you certain it is your router that is causing the problems? often times a settings issue from windows. Check to see if the following solution will help your problem. (i posted this solution a little while ago on a similar problem)

"If possible, please do more than just "disable" your firewall. stop it and close it out all together and try again.

worst case scenario. you can go to the link below and use the microsoft updater to get all of your updates. If completely turning off your firewall does not work i would recommend doing this at least once since it should give you the latest updates for your system and may potentially fix the problem without any further intervention on your part.
Click here for microsoft updater.

The microsoft updater is actually a good tool to use anyways since it will give you the latest updates to all of your microsoft programs.

hope this helps you out, and please don't forget to rate my solution"
