You most likely have a virus or spyware, start up in Safe mode and run msconfig from Start, Run uncheck anything that looks suspicious then reboot. Then when the computer comes back up Start, Run, type CMD and then type the following command:

rundll32 setupapi,InstallHinfSection Ndi-Steelhead 132 %windir%\inf\netrass.inf

you will need to reboot the computer but that should get your firewall back up and running.

Hope this helps,

    Unwanted program need help finding and eliminating same

    Most blocking of downloads are caused by the Firewall software installed. Most allow you to change the settings, to allow the download. Otherwise switch it off while you download the software and then turn it back on. Some Firewalls can go faulty so you could try an update or restore the firewall software.

    The computer kept putting a pop-up telling me the Norton firewall would be more secure against viruses. I got tired of closing the pop-up so I finally used the Norton firewall and since then I can ope up...

    you may have to uninstall norton for it to go back to windows firewall, from my personal experience I would not put norton back on the computer at all try trend micro or if you want a free on go with AVG 2011, to inform you norton has had a lot of issues lately.

    You need to completely delete and reinstall your drivers and Smart Panel software. Delete the printer from the [Printers & Faxes] menu in [Control Panel]. After that, go again into [Control Panel], then into [Add Remove Programs] and search (in alphabetical order) for the Samsung Status Monitor. Thenclick on [Remove].

    After you are finished, reinstall from the original CD keeping in mind not to connect the unit untill the installation procedure tells you to do so.

    Be blessed.

    make sure that you have enough memory to support nero. check if your computer passed all the requirements of nero. try to disable any firewall or any antivirus software insttaled on the computer before running the installation cd.check your add/remove program screen and make sure that the program nero is listed. if it is, uninstall then reinstall.

    hope this'll help you.
