Do you have an antivirus/antispyware software installed? How often do you update your antivirus/antispyware? Did you plug a usb pen drive/flash drive on your computer from an internet cafe? If so, you are infected with a malware or trojan virus.

Dont know how to get into my downloads


Please be more specific about what downloads are you talking about ..and what you want to do ..
If you are referring to files downloaded over the internet into your computer and now you are unable to find them ..usually all downloaded files will go to My documents folder under the folder called downloads..if you downloaded directly from the browser or using a torrent manager..Or for some downloads In C partition ..download folder..or ..even on desktop directly if you used internet explorer .
To find them easier , in case settings are changed , just make a search from the start /search ...select file type ..and name ..or part of the name and when you locate them ..take a look in the address bar and see where they are located.
If you are talking about files downloaded into a ipod or some other device ..directly from the internet ..than the situation changes depending on the device and brand ..but usually if there is a downloads folder they will be there or they are automatically placed into folders by categories..or file type ..
for example if you use only the internal memory ..and downloaded an audio file ..it will be placed in the audio folder automatically ..On some players and media devices ..if you use a memory card ..and it is formatted in the device ..they can be directed into download folder on memory card ..or in correspondent folder with the file type ...photos to images... music to audio ..and so on ...

I wont google to come up as my search engine when i go on line


If it doesn't come up, then you might not have set google.com as your home page or your search engine. It's best to set your homepage as google.com so that you will never have problem with your search engine. If your browser is googlechrome, click the wrench icon on top right hand corner of your googlechrome and select option, now in the Home Page section, type in google.com and close it. Now everytime you open your googlechrome, google.com will open up, also everytime you click the Home button, google.com will automatically open up.
If it's Internet Explorer, click the "Tools" on the Menu, select "Internet Options" and then in the General tab, type in google.com of the Home Page section and then click "Ok" to close it, you can also click "Apply" but never try to close it directly before clicking Ok or Apply, the changes made won't be saved.
If you need further help, let me know.
Good Luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

I let a friend us my computer to open a facebook account. now everytime i try to log into my acct hers automaticly comes up and we can not even look at my acct unless we go to her acct and search for...


So are you saying that when you log in with your email address and password, it goes to her account? That seems highly unlikely. Do you mean when you go to Facebook her account automatically logs in? That's very likely. Here's what you do:
1. When her account pops up, go to the top-right corner of the page an click "Account"
2. Under "Account" click "Logout".
3. Now under this screen, type in your email address and password. Make sure the "Keep me logged in" check box is unchecked.
This should take you to your account.

How to set it up on computer to where it reads my mp3 player


Not clear about what kind of mp3 player you have - but you should be able to connect it to your computer using the USB connector. Once you connect the mp3 player to your computers USB port, the computer will automatically detect it as an external drive (storage device) and open up a menu with different options - one of them will be "open folders and view files". You can select this as the default option and from then onwards - everytime you plug in your mp3 player to your computer, it will read it automatically and open the folders for you.

Im looking for a sound card driver for computer model P4P800SE i couldnt find the installer. Pls. Help me. Thanks


I can not provide you a direct link to the support page for that model of motherboard as Asus' website does not give the option. If you go to the following link though you can easily navigate to that model.

http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us

In the search box at the top left input P4P800 SE and it will take you to the download section for that motherboard. Choose the desired OS and the drivers for the board will appear.

Windows xp will not load audio drivers for asus m2n-vm dvi motherboard. realtek alc662


Boot your system & enter the bios. Please, carefully read the instructions at the bottom of page 1-32 in your manual. Make sure your AUDIO is set per instructions. Save & exit the bios. Create a folder on your desktop & name it, Realtek ALC662. Open the link provided; http://www.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=fyD1uSu233yBDeCq Click the driver Download button. Than click the dropdown button & choose WinXP. Left click the + sign next to, AUDIO. Download & save the driver, Realtek ALC662 Audio Driver V5.10.0.5591, 52.96 (MBytes) into the folder you created. Open the folder, Realtek ALC662 & uncompress the .zip file keeping the uncompressed files within the Realtek folder. A new folder will be created & it will be named: RCL. Open windows device manager. Right click once on My computer icon. Slide your mouse down & left click on Properties. Click the Hardware tab, than click on the Device Manager button. Scroll down the list of icons. You should fine something like; Unknown PCI device or just a plain yellow upside down pair shaped icon with question mark or ! mark inside. Rather trying to install by using the CD sound software's setup.exe file we will do a more direct method of installation. Right click once on the unknown PCI device or the yellow pair shaped icon. Left click once on update driver. Windows hardware wizard will open. Click No, not at this time. Than click the next button. Another window will open. Left click once in the circle next to, Install from a list or specific location (Advanced). Than click the next button. Again, another window will open. We want to remove the green check mark next to, Search removable media (floppy, CD-ROM...). Click the green check mark once & it will go away. Click the browse button, click the + sign next to my computer. Find the desktop folder you created, Realtek ALC662. Open it. Left click once on the RCL folder so it is high-lighted. Than click the OK button Windows search within the RCL folder & will install the correct driver software automatically. Once completed. Close all opened windows & restart you?re system. Test your audio. If you intend to use a mic, you will need to set this up through windows control panel. Open, Sounds and audio device. Good luck& thanks for using Fixya. Mike

Microsoft word 2000 is not responding


Use the Search Option, selecting all files (search hidden as well), to locate the file named Normal.dot. Once found delete or rename the file Normal.OLD. This is the template that Word uses for all documents. It not uncommon for this file to become corrupted and cause problems.

After finding this file in your computer, rename it to something else like Normal.Old or delete it completely and then retry opening word. Word should automatically recreate the Normal.dot template for you. If it works properly after renaming the template file, you can delete the old one since a new one will have already been created.

Normal.dot may be hidden so you may have to go into your Window Explorer options and change them to show hidden files and folders before doing your search

To enable viewing of hidden folders:
MY COMPUTER --> TOOLS --> FOLDER OPTIONS --> VIEW --> SHOW HIDDEN FILES AND FOLDERS)

Hope this information has been helpful.
