FTP Connection using Windows 7 64 bit

Individual applications that transfer files using FTP may have their own methods for monitoring transfer speed. But for a single method that works across all applications, consider an external bandwidth monitor. Windows no longer tracks bandwidth usage, but several free third-party tools display your upload and download speed. Close other Internet programs besides your FTP transfer tool, and check the bandwidth monitor to determine your transfer rate.

Net Speed Monitor
If your computer uses the 32-bit version of Windows 7, download Net Speed Monitor for Windows. If your computer instead uses the 64-bit Windows 7 version, download Net Speed Monitor for Windows (msi, x64). (See Link Below.) Run the installation program. The license agreement will open. Accept the agreement. Click "Next." Further options will open. Click "Next." Click "Install." A dialog box will ask whether you want your task bar to display the "NetSpeedMonitor toolbar." Click "Yes." Another dialog box will open. Click "Save." Run your FTP transfer. Check the transfer rate from the task bar. Bandwidth Meter b> Download the Bandwidth Meter installation program. (See Link Below.) Run the program. Click "Next" through the options. Choose "Install" when the final step prompts you to. Run your FTP transfer. Check the transfer rate from the task bar. Hope this helps.

Make older programs run in this version of Windows (from help section in Windows 7)

Most programs written for Windows Vista also work in this version of Windows, but some older programs might run poorly or not at all. If a program written for an earlier version of Windows doesn't run correctly, you can try changing the compatibility settings for the program, either manually or by using the Program Compatibility troubleshooter.

getcontent.aspx?assetid=745c7204-cf9f-46fb-a86c-98d4b9c644cf&documentset=en-us&prod=win700&market=us Go to the Windows website to watch the video. (1:26)

If changing the settings doesn't fix the problem, go to the program manufacturer's website to see if there is an update for the program.

  • Do not use the Program Compatibility troubleshooter on older antivirus programs, disk utilities, or other system programs because it might cause data loss or create a security risk.

To run the Program Compatibility troubleshooter
  1. ? to open the Program Compatibility troubleshooter.

  2. Follow the instructions in the troubleshooter.

If you cannot install a program, insert the installation disc for the program and, using the troubleshooter, browse to the program's setup file, usually called Setup.exe, Install.exe, or something similar. The troubleshooter is not designed to work on programs that have an .msi file name extension.

  • You can also open the Program Compatibility troubleshooter by right-clicking a program's icon or shortcut and then clicking Troubleshoot compatibility.

1 Answer

My software just stopped woring, i double click to open it and nothing happens.

Which Nero versions that you used? If you have CCleaner, simply run CCleaner after uninstall any software like Nero for the best results, it will cleans all your PC activities or Windows System. Try to run registry cleaner before installing Nero. Then, download and run "Nero General Clean Tool", it helps you to thoroughly clean all the files that other versions of Nero have left on your computer. When you make a new Nero installation on your computer, you may see messages about incompatibility or possible inconsistencies with the Windows registry since earlier Nero versions have left disconnected files, which I think cause this type of problem. Then you try to install it again and lets see. Try these, it may can help you to solve your problem.

Webroot Spyware Question

Hi kn21_83

Your SpySweeper program functions by viewing incoming programs requesting access to your computer, referencing them to a built-in definitions file that updates regularly, and granting permission or red-flagging potential spyware programs. So, the definitions file is very important for the program to work properly.

I recently had a customer's computer display the same error message, and the way I was able to work-around it and make the SpySweeper program work properly was to uninstall it completely, ensure that there are no other anti-virus programs that might interfere with SpySweeper's install (if you have norton for example, manualy disable it for the duration of the install), and download the most current version from the internet rather than your disks that came with it.

Now, there could be other things involved, such as a malicious program interfering with how SpySweeper functions. In that scenario, restoring your OS is usually the fastest method of restoring functionality to your machine. Hopefully it is not a virus infection, but if you run out of ideas to resolve the issue a restore is a simple fix that guarantees success.
