Connecting HTC PDA to Computer via ActiveSync freezes USB devices

When I connect my HTC Touch Pro 2 PDA to my Windows XP Professional computer using ActiveSync 4.5.0 it causes most other USB devices to freeze up. I am still able to use keyboard, mouse etc but anything connected to my USB hub freezes as does my second monitor which is connected via a USB adaptor. The only way to get around the problem is to disconnect the problem devices, connect my PDA, perform and ActiveSync, disconnect the PDA and reconnect the other devices. This is obviously not ideal and as a result I don't sync anywhere near as often as I should. I have tried various USB slots and uninstalled and reinstalled ActiveSync all to no avail.

SOURCE: Adobe Acrobat 8 does not integrate with MS Office 2007 programs

Then do a search for 'all files and folders' - search for both Acrobat 6.0 and then Acrobat 7.0, with the options "Search system folders", "Search hidden files and folders" and "Search subfolders" checked. Delete all of those related files found.
You should do this search and delete whenever you uninstall any programs. It will remove lots and lots of leftover junk files and corrupted files taking up room on your hard drive. It will also give you a "clean install" when you reinstall or install an updated program. (Do this ESPECIALLY when updating to a NEW anti-virus programs and “Internet Security Suite” programs such as McAfee or Norton etc.)

Download and install "Registry Mechanic" then do the updates prior to running it and removing anything for the first time. This will get rid of all your current Registry errors, prior to installing or reinstalling.

SOURCE: I am still having problems with my computer.

Sounds like you need a little maintenance...you should maybe try a system degfrag......"programs", "accessories", system tools", "disk defragmenter". "analyze" first, then if it says you don't have to, then don't bother. If you do Defragment, note that it will take several hours - maybe run it overnight.
After that, you should try cleaning up your registry. Here's a link for a program I use, and it works pretty well to clean up missing links, and entries for old programs, etc. Just run the program, and delete all of the items it finds. there is an option to back up the registry beforehand which is a good idea:

Hopefully this helps....it sure won't hurt.

Connect your phone to the PC via USB cable and use ActiveSync (windows xp) or Windows Mobile Device Center to synchronize your data.
Or:
Connect your phone to the PC and open as a drive in "Computer" on the PC.
After you connect your phone, open your phone's Settings/Connections and chose the usb connection type you want to use.

How i can sync my Ipaq h3955 with my pc win xp


In order to sync your iPAQ with Windows XP or earlier, you will need to download and install Windows Microsoft ActiveSync 4.5 from:http://www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/en-us/downloads/microsoft/activesync-download.mspx.

Notes:
You can use ActiveSync 4.5 only with phones that run Windows Mobile 2003 or later versions. ActiveSync and Windows Mobile Device Center won’t work with Windows Embedded CE 4.2 or 5.0, Pocket PC 2002, or Smartphone 2002 phones. (To see which Windows Mobile operating system you’re using, if your phone doesn’t have a touch screen, click Start > Settings > About. If your phone has a touch screen, click Start > Settings > System tab > About.) To sync information to any of these phones, you must use a USB or serial cable and your computer’s Internet connection and File Explorer.
You must use Microsoft Outlook 2002, Outlook 2003, or Office Outlook 2007 to sync your e-mail, contacts, tasks, and notes from your computer.

Download and install ActiveSync:
1. Click the download link on this page, and then click Continue.
2. Select whether you want to register for the Windows Mobile newsletter, and then click Continue.
3. Click Download files below, and then click Download (next to the Setup.msi file).
4. In the File Download dialog box, click Run.
5. Follow the instructions in the Installation Wizard to install ActiveSync.

Note: You must use a USB cable to connect your phone to your computer the first time you use ActiveSync to synchronize information.
