Unable to install anything on my e63, especially themes


The errors are caused because of the security measures introduced into the new version of Symbian Series 60 mobile operating system disallowing installation of old applications and invalid certificates, however bypassing this security feature and fixing these certificate errors to install themes and softwares is very easy, simply follow the instructions below:
  1. Open you mobile main Menu.
  2. Navigate to Settings -> General -> Date and time
  3. Now change the year back one year.
  4. Now install the application.
  5. Don't forget to change date back to original.
If the above does not solve the problem goto Application Manager > Options > Settings and set "Online Certificate check" = Off and Software Installation = All.

Go to your Options : Security >> Security Options (the same page where you can enable/disable passwords) & scroll to the bottom. If there's an IT policy attached, it will be mentioned there. Remove the IT policy using these instructions



Procedure
Step 1 : Ensure the Blackberry Desktop Manager is installed using Blackberry Internet Service, and not Blackberry Enterprise Server. If you are unsure, it would probably be a good idea to uninstall the Desktop Manager and start again. If you don't have the CD that came with your Blackberry, the Software can be downloaded here.

Step 2 : Download the file policy.bin and save it in your Blackberry installation directory (C:\Program Files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry).

Step 3 : Wipe your Blackberry, creating a backup if necessary. Select Options/Security/Wipe on the Device. If this option is unavailable, you may have to install the latest software on your Blackberry. You need to Download and install the latest OS for your device. Connect your device, open the Desktop Manager, select Application Loader, and follow the prompts.

Step 4 : Close the Desktop Manager if it is open.

Step 5 : From the Windows XP Start Menu select Run..., and at the prompt type regedit. In the tree on the left hand side, navigate to:

HKEY_Current_Users\Software\Research In Motion\BlackBerry\PolicyManager

Right-Click the Policy Manager Folder and select New/String Value. Name the value Path. Now, Double-Click the Path Subkey and set Value Data to:

C:\Program Files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry\policy.bin

Step 6 : Open the Desktop Manager.

Step 7 : Connect the Device. Verification Once complete, the Options/Security screen on your Blackberry should not contain references to an IT Policy, you should now be able to change all settings (including password prompts), and install Third Party Applications.

Usb ports not powering a keyboard or mouse


Best would be to determine whether any changes was made to the system prior to the error starting. Changes would include Windows updates, driver installations, hardware installations or software installations and upgrades. If you are unable to determine this, then boot into Safe Mode and view the System and Application Logs. Stop any services which may report that it can't start or has some or other error. If Software upgrades has been done, do a roll back on these and remove any newly installed hardware. If no upgrades where done hardware or software wise then disable all devices which is not required to boot the system and disable all services and applications loading on startup which is not required to boot the system. If the system boots after this then enable each program and devices separately ( Re-booting the computer after each one is enabled ), until the system fails. Disable the last device enabled before system failure and continue the process until finished leaving the devices / programs which causes system failure disabled.

Windows will only start in safe made after sp2 or 3 install


you likely have some software issue that prevents all the new services from loading, most likely it is related to the antivirus/security software.

try disabling all the non-MS Services and all statup items in MSConfig, if it starts normally with all this disabled, reenable them a few at a time until you find the offending software

START
Run
type "MSCONFIG" withou the quotes
click the services Tab
check "Hide all microsoft services"
click disable all
click Satrtup Tab
Disable all
OK
allow to restart

during startup you will see a screen that says you have made the changes, this is normal (when you are all done, check the don't show again)

once you have found what causes the issue, Google the startup item and uninstall the related software.

Hope this helps

I am trying to set up internet spoke to customer service at belkin who advice i need to remove firewall how do i do that please


If it is windows firewall go to Control Panel >> Security Centre >> Windows firewall.

If it is a software installed firewall, for example Norton Internet Security, open the control panel for the application, usually clicking on the small picture from the firewall software near to the clock, and stop the firewall (disable).

Troubleshooting motorola pc suite in Vista?


There are 2 solutions to your problem.

First Solution:
This error message is due to the user account access control setting in Vista. To prevent this error from displaying go to the control panel, User settings and then disable the User Account Control settings.

Second Solution:
This alternative that doesn't require disabling User Account Control security in Vista: run MPT as administrator (either by right clicking on the MPT desktop icon and choosing "Run as administrator" or checking the "Run this program as an administrator" box in the Privilege Level section of the Compatibility tab of the MPT properties dialog - right click on the MPT desktop icon, choose "properties" then click the Compatibility tab).

Although you'll get an "An unidentified program wants access to your computer" dialog each time you run MPT, the application should work correctly.

This solution would avoid having to weigh the potential security compromise associated with disabling User Account Control.
