SOURCE: leap frog tag pen won't work any longer.

I found that after replacing the batteries, the power button on the reader did not work. I did however have luck after I connected the Reader/Pen to the laptop, updated the s/w on the reader and updated the s/w on the laptop. Then the reader was able to interact with one of the books just fine.

SOURCE: Tag will not update

I have had the same problem!! Running windows 7 64 bit. I am stuck in the same do-loop. I tried different usb port (as advised), downloaded 2 different installers from their web site, and verified the tag reader is "seen" under the USB controllers on my PC.
You also should check the following:
With TAG reader off, plug into USB port - if it does not automatically turn on device is defective.
IF it turns on do the following:
Click on the Windows start button (the small icon lower left of your computer). in the search box that comes up type devmgmt.msc and the device manager will open. Scrool down till you see Universal Serial Bus controllers and verify you see the TAG reader listed and verify there is no ! (exclamation point) next to it. If you see the exclamation point it may mean the driver is missing. If this is so right click and select properties, on the driver tab click update driver, on the next screen select browse my computer for the driver software. If you need to specify where to look try c:\Program Files\LeapFrog\LeapFrog Connect\TagUSBDrivers.

This was not my problem so I am still stuck - hope you solution was this easy. Anyone with any ideas I would appreciate help also. Customer service was unable to resolve.

SOURCE: Recharge or Batteries: All of the above required?

It can run off of batteries alone, or the ac adapter alone. There is a rechargeable battery pack (think laptop battery) that is available. With this pack you would plug it in to the wall, charge it up, then play. Otherwise it's one or the other

My satellite click requires a windows 10 update, there isn't enough storage as default apps takes up majority of storage. I keep also getting error 0x80070006 when trying to download apps .

Method 1. Run Windows Update Troubleshooter
Windows Update Troubleshooter is a tool developed by Microsoft, the purpose of which is to detect and fix Windows Update service-related problems. Unfortunately, but the troubleshooter often fails to detect the bugs. In this case, try the next fixes:
Click Win key + X and select Control Panel.
Type Troubleshooter and select Troubleshooting from the search results.
Select System and Security and click on Fix problems with Windows Updates.
Wait for the process to complete and then check if the error reoccurs on Windows Updates.
Method 2. Disable Antivirus and check Windows Firewall Settings
Antivirus software, especially the one that belongs to third party developers, often conflict with the internal Windows apps and prevent Windows Updates from downloading. Therefore, we would recommend you to disable your antivirus temporarily and, additionally, check if Windows Firewall settings are correct.
Click Win key + R, type Firewall.cpl, and press OK.
Select Turn Windows Firewall On or Off option.
Go to Private Network Settings and select Turn off Windows Firewall (not recommended).
Once done, navigate to the Public Network Settings and select Turn off Windows Firewall (not recommended).
Click OK to save the changes.

I cant access to facebook, gmail, hotmail. this massage is displayed in the screen: Access Denied by SmartFilter I think that it was blocked by DOS.

I did a Google search for smartfilter, and it is a McAfee product. I know nothing about their products from the last ten years, but Internet security software can be a major headache. Here is my approach:

I do most of my Web browsing using Ubuntu Linux with Firefox Web browser. On my Windows machine I currently use Microsoft Security Essentials as my antivirus, Windows Firewall is turned on, that's it. I do AdAware scans from time to time, and Spybot Search& Destroy scans as well. I use AdBlockPlus on my Firefox browser on both machines. I accept cookies, including third-party cookies, but dump cookies when I close Firefox, except for those sites I make exceptions for, which I allow. Sites I allow are those that use cookies to keep me signed in and allow me to set preferences on the site.

I would recommend that you make sure you have updated Windows, have the Windows firewall or your McAfee firewall on, your antivirus software definitions are up-to-date, that you periodically scan with AdAware amd with Spybot, and that their definitions are current before you scan.

I also recommend that you regularly check your disk for errors and defragment it if using Windows.

I cannot update my eset smart security 4 directly through inernet.the internet here is firewalled.what shud i do to update my antivirus directly from internet

Try adding an exception to the firewall settings, as to allow Eset Smart Security to update itself. If you are having problems adding an exception to the firewall, do post another question, specifying what firewall it is, and I shall try my best to write a step-by-step guide to adding the exception.

I cant install yahoomessenger its asking for firewall settings which i cant understand where to do that

A system designed to prevent unauthorized access to or from a private network. Firewalls can be implemented in both hardware and software, or a combination of both. Firewalls are frequently used to prevent unauthorized Internet users from accessing private networks connected to the Internet, especially intranets. All messages entering or leaving the intranet pass through the firewall, which examines each message and blocks those that do not meet the specified security criteria.
to disable firewall
  • Right-click on My Network Places
  • Select Properties
  • Double click Local Network Connection or Modem
  • Click Advanced
  • Uncheck Internet Connection Firewall

Won't let civ 4 play

Did you download it illegally? Regardless, Norton sucks and you need to get rid of it. Most likely The firewall in Norton is blocking access from the program on your computer. Open Norton and Find the Firewall settings (i havent used norton in many years so i forgot where it is; Possibly udner configure or settings or something). Allow access to the program through the firewall and if you bought it then allow full internet access to it as well. Hope that helps :)
