Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

System error I have a program trying to enable itself when I start my computer. At first it said it wanted to run a Bonjour service and now that I have deleted it it said device monitor system. It wants to run a program to see what I am doing on the internet. It was given to us on a reciept from Safeway grocery store and now I cant seem to figure out how to delete the program so that we dont have it again. When we typed in the info from the reciept it didnt say that it was going to monitor what we did on the internet until it was downloaded and now it wants to run everytime we start our computer. How do I delete this problem.

That sounds very odd. Have you tried going to add/remove programs to see if its there? If so, uninstall it.

If it isn't listed there then you can remove it from your start up folder. In Windows XP you can right click the Start button, go to explore, left click Programs in the left hand pane, left click Startup in the left hand pane, delete reference to the program in the right hand pane.

If it isn't there then it's in your registry. You can check if there is reference to it under the following key but be very very careful when working in the registry as it can cause issues to delete the wrong thing.

Click Start, in the run area type in regedit.
Go to this key: hkey_local_machine\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\run

Too many programs open at start up

Your best bet is to download CCleaner and use the startup cleanup option. The program is free, and it won't let you prevent any essential system apps from running

IP address

First of all, disable and re-enable the connection. When you change the IP address from automatic to a fixed IP address while the adapter is not connected, you always get a address at first when the adapter reconnects. If this doesn't solve the problem, read on.
  • You cannot obtain an IP address from the DHCP server. The IP address is
  • The DHCP service is not running, although it is set to Start Automatic.
  • When you try to start the DHCP service, you get the error message: Could not start the DHCP Client Service on Local Computer. Error 1075: The dependency service does not exist or has been marked for deletion.
This problem can occur after uninstalling Norton AntiVirus, which sets the DHCP service as depending on itself. It can also occur when the computer name of the client computer is too long. Make sure that all computer names in your network are no longer than 15 characters.
First set a restore point, so you can undo your changes, should anything go wrong (Programs, Accessories, System programs, System restore).
After setting the restore point, to remove this dependency, do this:
  • Click: Start
  • Click: Run...
  • Type: regedit
  • Click: OK
  • Navigate to the following keys in the registry:
p%202.jpg p%203.jpg
  • For each of these, on the right side, double-click: DependOnService
  • Delete any lines containing either SYMTDI or NISDRV.
  • Click: OK
  • Close the Registry Editor.
  • Reboot.

My Dell Inspiron 1525 freezes randomly after starting up. I can't use the mouse or keys to change the screen. The computer freezes around 5 minutes after starting up. I booted up in safe mode and have...

If you had no issue in safe mode the only thing I've seen like that is a virus that cuts of your use of I/O ports. boot into safe mode and try doing a system restore to a time before this problem occurred. IF that doesn't solve the problem try doing a clean install of the OS

Cannot use WinXP System File Checker (SFC), RPC Server?

Are you trying this in safe mode?
Sometimes the RPC service will refuse to start. Assuming all other services are reset to their default values:

Start, run, CMD

net start (check the service again to be sure it is stopped)

net start rpcss
net start (check again)

if no joy, you need to use the XP CD to go to the Recovery Console.

From the Recovery Console type:


reboot the machine.

"Could not start the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) Service. Error 1058" error message when you manually start the Remote Procedure Call service

Some general things to try.

See if System Restore will get you back to a restore point before your problem with Explorer.

Try Safe Mode (Do you have this problem in Safe Mode?).

Try running ChkDsk to check your drive for errors. Right-click your Drive icon/ Properties/ Tools/ Error Checking. Select both boxes.

Run the System File Checker program from the Run Box by typing.....Sfc /Scannow in it and have your XP CD handy.

Bonjour problem

Bonjour is not needed:

To remove Bonjour:
  1. Open a Windows command prompt and type the following command:
    "C:Program FilesBonjourmDNSResponder.exe" -remove
  2. Navigate to the following folder in Windows Explorer: C:Program FilesBonjour
  3. Rename the mdnsNSP.dll file in that folder to mdnsNSP.old
  4. Restart your computer
  5. Delete the the Program FilesBonjour folder
Note: Removing Bonjour prevents Version Cue clients (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Flash, Bridge) from automatically discovering Version Cue Servers and Version Cue projects in your local network. You will need to connect manually using Connect to Server and the URL or IP address of the machine running Version Cue Server instead.

Toshiba Laptop Malfunction (2)

This sounds like 2 things, it could be a video driver conflict or there's a startup program that might be causing the problem. To check which is which, try restarting the computer > press F8 when you see the toshiba screen until you get the Advanced Boot Options.. then choose Enable VGA Mode (I'm assuming your using WindowsXP). If that works and you get to the desktop screen with no problems, try removing the display driver & replace it with a compatible one (usually on the cd that came with the laptop). If that doesn't work, try choosing Safe Mode and run msconfig (start > run > msconfig) and disable all services & startup programs (don't forget to check "hide all microsoft services"). then restart the computer. If this doesn't work and continually goes to a loop, do you see a bluescreen with error messages on it? Like Error 0x00000003 or 0x0000000E etc.? or a memory dump error? That could be a hardware problem already and it may require service.

Hope this helps.
