Question about Dell Inspiron Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a dell inspiron 580 with windows 7-64Bit. It was working just fine then I downloaded Mcafee Total Protection and now when I log onto my cpu after a couple of minutes it logs off and logs back on only when my ethernet cable is plugged in. If i log on without the ethernet cable plugged in it works just fine. Please help.

I have solved this problem.
Disable the HPQWMIEX.EXE service (either from msconfig or from services tab).
I had exactly the same problem - HP support didn't have a clue!!!!!

SOURCE: Can't log in windows vista

Go into the power settings and disable the password prompt when resuming from standby. If you want it to prompt for the password then restart the machine and enable it. This should clear up the glitch. If it doesn't, then you can try either a system restore or a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc. If the restore doesn't fix it, the repair definitely will.

SOURCE: My Dell Inspiron 1525 wont load up

I'd suggest first removing your memory modules and reinsert one at a time.

But, I think your operating system is compromised, due to Spyware, etc.

Since your system won't boot in Safe Mode, your only other option is to repair or reinstall your operating system.

Hope this helps.

Why can't I find a McAfee website to activate my anti virus. I purchased McAfee Total Protection Anti Virus at Walmart. There is NO Disc, just a product key. I have found No website to manually instal

Throw McAfee away (and Widnows as well while you're at it...if you are a brave soul). In Windows install AVG...the FREE version is sufficient. Alternatively, DITCH WINDOWS. Do you enjoy being a slave to Microsoft and Bill Gates. Just because They and He are mega-rich, doesn't mean that they are right.

Check out online the operating system which I am using right now (and have been using for many years), it's called LINUX and it's FREE. All versions and variations of, number in the hundreds, Current versions install in about 18 minutes and enable the user to do anything they want on a pc (old and new pc-s are supported). Extract a copy onto a DVD disc and RUN it you pc's memory or install it onto a spare drive and become liberated. Also there are currently 45,365 free apps.

And the running spped puts other OS systems to shame.

I want to re-enter my security key no as i had to replace my laptop

If you replace your laptop, you will need to also replace the McAfee software as each computer is recognized separately with McAfee products. Go to the McAfee site, log in, and download your purchased product. Sometimes, you will also need to deactivate your Firewall before installing the new product as it will interfere with the installation. Your purchased products and keys will show up in your account with McAfee. Hope this helps.

McAfee automatically downloaded Total Protection update now laptop will not connect to internet although it is connected wirelessly to the home network

Uninstall, then at next boot, press F8, when menu come up, choose SAFE MODE, when window comes up, choose SYSTEM RESTORE. When calendar comes up, choose time before McAfee was installed follow instructions, then finished reboot, now problem should be gone.
