Windows 8 consumer preview not working

The D800 specs look a little on the low side. The only option is to remove Windows 8.

In my opinion, it will only do well with touch pads. The rest of us will stay with Win 7. It's a work horse. That's that same reason so many people loved XP.

Your only problem is the hardware failure which needs attention.

Com surrogate

These should help:

Error message: "COM Surrogate has stopped working."

COM objects are often defined in Dynamic Link Libraries (DLL files). The Program file for COM Surrogate is actually dllhost.exe that can load a DLL and make its objects available to other programs.

The COM Surrogate error message is often related to codecs and other COM objects that aren't fully compatible with Vista. These are installed by other programs. The most common culprits are DivX and Nero. The first thing you should do is upgrade to the latest versions of these to see if that fixes the problem. Another possible fix is to disable thumbnail previews in Explorer. To do that:
In Windows Explorer, click Organize, then select Folder and Search Options
Click the View tab
Check the box that says "Always show icons, never thumbnails"
Click OK
To help troubleshoot which codec(s) might be causing the problem, you can use a free tool called InstalledCodec. You can use it to disable individual codecs one at a time.
You can download it at

Hope that helps

Print Preview in Yahoo mail not working in Firefox

Try uninstalling Firefox and download a new package and reinstall Firefox again.
Also,,will your print preview settings work in IE ?
If they dont work in either browser then it may be your printer driver.

I'm always being alerted that Com surrogate has stopped working

This might help:
Disable Thumbnail Previews in Windows Vista Explorer If you want to speed up browsing around in explorer, you might think about disabling thumbnail previews in folders.
To make this change, click the Organize button on any folder, and choose Folder and Search Options from the menu.
Click the View tab, and then check the Always show icons, never thumbnails checkbox.
Click OK, and you're done.

There are lots of people also pointing this problem to Divx, Nero and general codec packs but the problem starts when they start using a media player not windows explorer.

Give it a go and if it helps please rate me.

Sounds like the driver that you are using either has a conflict or is the wrong one. Try a different driver.
