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,

Dear Friend,

The only security system that I know can be Firewall or Antivirus. Now, every time you try to install something, Windows prompt you with a warning windows saying that a particular software is about to install and you only have a Yes or No key. If this is the case, click Yes.

If this is something related to your Antivirus or Firewall, disable it and try to install. After installation, enable it back to keep your computer secure.

Good Luck!

    I have unloaded and reloaded yahoo messenger many times i cannot receive im's and yahoo messenger keeps giving me a message not responding i thought i fixed it but not working again

    Make sure that you are not using Yahoo Messenger version 9 as there is a known bug about it. If you got the version 9 installed remove it from your PC & then install the latest version. Check you security software settings especially the Firewall. Some antivirus software could block the usage of messaging programs. Like for example Norton, check on the program controls of the Firewall.
    Hope this help a bit. If you got any other questions regarding this issue please fell free to shoot me a message.

    I have a gateway wireless laptop.I am unable to print from my laptop to my dell desktop computer/ you have any suggestions.It keeps rejecting stating unable to print from a remote location.please...

    hello, do you use any antivirus program or firewall program? if so try to close them and try the printing. if that works you need to allow some ports in your firewalls.

    you can also try to go start->run and write "cmd" hit enter
    then write in the black command prompt ipconfig. look for you ip adress should be like 192.168.x.x check both computers IP.
    try to ping the other: write in the command prompt "ping 192.168.x.x" and see if the other computer answers. get back to me and explain your network little bit more. have your printer ever worked?
