These are more likely to be Windows Updates that you have downloaded and they are given the strange names with numbers that you have seen.

Virus files are usually hidden, so you never see what they are called.

If you state where this file was found it may hold a clue to what the file is?

List five rules for creating variables.


Follow these rules when naming variables:
  • A variable name must be of the form $name or ${name}.
  • The string name can consist of letters (a-z and A-Z), numbers (0-9), and underscore characters (_).
  • The first character of name must be an alphabetic character (a-z or A-Z).
  • If the ${name} form is used, spaces can also appear in name. This allows you to use multiple word names without the underscore character.
Note: The variable e should not be assigned as a global variable in Maple code. It can be used, however, as a local variable.

I am trying to get on the wii internet like i always could but it loads for 30 sec. to 1 minute. the it says error code: 51332


Try changing the channel of your wireless router to either channel 1 or channel 11 which can increase download speeds.

If your router is using WEP encryption

  • Ensure your key is hexadecimal, consisting of 0-9 or A-F only, no other special characters or letters.
  • 64 bit encryption requires your WEP key to be 10 characters consisting of numbers or leters A through F.
  • 128 bit encryption requires your WEP key to be 26 characters consisting of numbers or leters A through F.
If your router is using WPA encryption, the Wii is compatible with :
  • WPA - PSK(TKIP)
  • WPA - PSK(AES)
  • WPA2 - PSK(AES)
If your router is using MAC filtering, ensure the Wii MAC address has been added to the list of approved MAC address on your wireless router settings.

Code 51330 cant connect to router


This issue is most often because of your Internet security.

You should log into your router using the default IP (consult the manual)
Locate the wireless security option
Now if you are using a 64 bit encryption the WEP key must be 10 characters long and consist of the number and letter A-F.
If you are using a 128 bit encryption then the WEP key must be 26 characters and consist of the number and letters A-F.

You can also try adjusting the channel your router is on, I suggest using channel 1 or 11.

hopefully this helps

Can you access the email account? If so, change the password. Make sure you set a good password. A good password will consist of both UPPER and lower case letters, numbers, and symbols/characters, plus a minimum of 8 characters.

Alphanumeric is a combination of alphabatic and numeric (sometimes shortened to alphameric), and is used to describe the collection of Latin letters and Arabic digits used by much of western society. There are either 36 (single case) or 62 (case-sensitive) alphanumeric characters. The alphanumeric character set consists of the numbers 0 to 9 and letters A to Z.
