Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional

1 Answer

I had a bogus "Virus Protection" alert mimicking Windows, then everything started messing up after I foolishly downloaded the recommended software. I have since replaced the hard drive with a SATA. When I put my Windows Disk in to load it, after all the prompting, I get a "PXE-e61" error that no bootable media is found and to check my cable. I have checked and re-checked all of this. Some other disks (bootable tools) work, so the drive is reading. How can I get this thing to install my windows again. (WIndows XP Pro)

    Is it possible the disk is scratched or corrupted? try it on another computer.

    Worked fine in all other computers. I replaced the hard drives and started over with Ultra Vista.

    Thanks,

Check out http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314859 for a possible solution. Check you motherboard web site for the SATA interface driver. You will need the driver when you press the F6 key during installation of XP.

Windows Security Center alert ?


The fake Windows Security Center is a virus that invades a computer and threatens the user that his computer is infected with multiple viruses. Although this "tool" looks legitimate, it is actually rogue malware. It can be time-consuming to remove this fake Windows Security Center from your computer, but you can do it for free.

Download and install a legitimate free anti-malware program, such as Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (malwarebytes.org), on your computer. Restart your computer and hold down the "F8" key for a few seconds before the Windows logo appears to start the computer in safe mode. Run the anti-malware program and allow it to perform a full scan of your system. This may take hours, depending on a number of factors, but allow the anti-malware software to do its job so that you will be able to fully remove fake Windows Security Center from your computer. http://www.malwarebytes.org/ rather than pay for it http://corbitek-antimalware.soft32.com/free-download Free reliable antimalware solution with realtime protection and automatic update Click to put a check mark next to all of the malware files detected in the scan and click "Delete." Download and install CCleaner (piriform.com/ccleaner). http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner This free program will scan and clean out all temporary files on your computer. Run the program, and when it finishes, your computer should be free from the fake Windows Security Center. Restart your computer to exit safe mode.

My google chrome didnt work. theres no connection. i re-installed it several times already.


Go to the wrench on the upper right, then under the hood then network. This is where you configure your network settings, if it states it's unconnected follow the walk through in chromes help. Most of the time the issue is that it is set for dial up when it should be broadband or the reverse. If it states it is connected then more information will be needed for us to help you.
Your virus protection and/or firewall may be blocking chrome. Simply enter both and view blocked sites and/or add chrome as an exception.
Is everything else connecting on the computer (other browsers)?
Are you using chromes official download link?
Are you using the developer version of chrome or the standard user one? If so try downloading an archived version of chrome and seeing if that fixes the problem. If it does report the issue with computer specs to chrome and they will work on fixing the issue.
There is a virus that will mess with browser connections usually received through facebook. TDL3 rootkit is a common one (hitman pro 3 is a common removal tool). It should be able to be seen under your proxy settings (in under the hood). They will reveal themselves as bogus users ect. If you have been having virus issues run a virus scan or bring to a computer service center, this will cost money.

Remember to keep virus protection up to date and never to download/click-on things that you don't know or don't trust the source of. I know it sounds like I'm lecturing but almost everyone that comes to me with virus infection started with "well my friend sent me a link to look at their new pictures."

I keep getting a virus alert and when I ask to remove viruses it brings me to a page to buy virus protection. I already have virus protection on Windows. What can I do to resolve this annoying problem...


You are infected with a Trojan or Malware. The pop-ups are bogus.. You are only infected with the product they are trying to sell you. What is the name of the Virus Protection they are trying to sell you? First thing to do is restart your computer in Safe Mode and run all your security scans. See it they find the culprit.If not post back,

I tried to instal greeting cards 123.Macafee didn't let me do it.Now I've lost everything.I can't even get my e mail.What did i do? How do I restore it to the original settings?


You have restore points automatically set on your computer. You need to find where the last restore point is and restore to that point. Then when you try to reload the greeting cards again do when you are off line and turn your virus protection off and when you are done loading greeting card program turn virus protection back on. I recommend getting rid of Macafee it is junk and you are paying way too much for it. You can go on line to cnet.com and get free virus protection from AVG and it will not mess up your computer when you are trying to down load new software. The nice thing is it is free.
