Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Issues, issues, issues

My husband and I purchased an Acer model computer last week.  We had the internet set up on it this week.  Today, my husband says that no matter which program you click on, be it Solitaire or Word, a message pops up that says :"The item you selected is unavailable.  It may have been moved, removed or renamed.  Do you want to delete this item?"  Now this is just frustrating.  We just got this thing a week ago and already it has a problem.  Can you tell me what, if anything, we can do to rectify this from home?

 

Thank you in advance for your help,

Erika Deal

Always restart, I'll assume you've done that.
Try restarting and logging in as another user if there is multiple users set up on it. Log in as administrator or a user with administrator rights.

If the problem is still there, you may be infected with spyware and/or viruses. Make sure your antivirus software is up to date and download and install a good spyware detection program. SpyBot Search & Destroy is free and a good one to use. Do a full virus scan with your up to date antivirus software and a full scan with the spyware program once installed.

Spyware is rampant on the internet and you do need a program to help protect you from it. You should also download and install the Mozilla Firefox web browser and use it rather than Internet Explorer.

If your computer (Windows) cannot be repaired you may be looking at a restore procedure either with the Windows restore feature or with disks that may have come with your computer. I would choose the Windows restore first. If you need assistance with that, replay back here and I can go through it with you.

Below are the instructions on how to power-cycle your network. This will fix a lot of out-of-the-blue network issues.
Unplug the power to your modem and router. Also, turn off your computer. Now that everything is powered down, wait 60 seconds. Then, plug the power back in to ONLY your modem. Wait another 60 seconds. Plug the power cable back in to your router. Wait another 60 seconds and then turn on your computer. Once your computer loads Windows and you see your desktop with all of your icons, give it a chance to connect to your network and open Internet Explorer.
If this does not work, then I need more information about your network. First, how many computers do you have on this network? If you have other computers on this network, do they connect with an ethernet cable or wirelessly? Can the other computers get on the Internet, or is it just this PC which is having the issue? What brand of router do you have? Which version of Windows are you running on your Aspire One? And, finally, do you have DSL or cable Internet (if you have DSL, obtain your DSL username and password - as well as any other pertinent settings - from your ISP)? Please reply to this answer if the above instructions did not fix your issue. If the above instructions worked, then disregard these questions.

Gail,

Would love to help, Most computers like this have a wireless switch on them, when this is turned off then of course wirless internet would be difficult. I would instruct you to look for this switch and turn it on. I feel that could be your issue without even looking at it.

Other issues can be that the wireless security got twisted around when this frose so you might want to verify those settings as well,


Thanks for using fixya please leave postive feedback before you go,

Thank you, and I hope this helps...

There was a compatibility problem that existed between Webroot's Spy Sweeper program and Microsoft's Vista operating system. The issue occurred after an update Microsoft automatically delivered to Vista machines using its automatic windows updating function on January 8, 2008. The bug was fixed on February 12th, 2008. If you have automatic updates set on your Vista machine, the bug will have been corrected by now automatically.
Other issues may be: Check for firewall issues if you still have problems. Temporarily switch the firewall off and see if performance improves. Add exemptions to your firewall if you find it's the cause. SpySweeper.exe, SpySweeperUI.exe, ssu.exe and WrConsumerService.exe should be added and allowed to access the internet.

You're not done yet. The washer pump probably is leaking. Lots of basements being pumped out in this area as a result of the snow.

Have a new Acer LCD monitor -- will not power on.


I checked all cords connecting the monitor to the computer, made sure nothing was loose.  Then I re-booted the computer, and the monitor is on.
