It cannot be set for a particular drive... it is like exceptions can be added for a particular program... goto windows firewall in control panel... go to its settings and in the exceptions tab add your program as a exception...

How do we remove a possibly corrupt file from c:drive?


Unfortunately that error means the hard drive is malfunctioning. If this is being caused due to a virus then I would suggest trying a different virus scanner or use a online scanner to see if it can remove the file.

If this is caused by a drive failure I would recommend try the windows scan disk or error checking tool to see if it can fix or remove the file. To do this follow these instructions.
1) Open Windows Explorer (Windows Key + E)
2) Right click on your C: and select "Properties"
3) Go to "Tools" and click on "Check Now" under Error-checking
4) Check both check boxes and click Start.

Fatal issue: Reboot and Select proper Boot device


<p><b>Issue:</b><br /> <p>Reboot and Select proper Boot device <br />or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device<br /> <p> <br /> <p> <br /> <img src="matrix12_2.jpg" /> <br /> <p><b>Cause:</b><br /> <p>The boot record could not find a bootable partition so control was passed back to the BIOS. This issue occurs prior to the start of any Windows code. <br /> <p>It can be caused by a power-failure while the disk is in the middle of writing, a virus damaged the entry, a failing disk drive or a serious software bug damaged the partition entry (although Windows typically protects against this). This issue cannot be easily caused by any action you performed, unless you turned off the power without going through Windows shutdown.<br /> <p><b>Workaround:</b><br /> <p>1. If you had changed, added or removed hard drives, or changed or removed drive cabling, likely something is wrong. Recheck that the drives are properly installed and the cabling has not changed. Switching cables to different motherboard connectors or changing the master/slave drive jumpers (on old ATA drives) can cause this problem. In some systems, the cables were not plugged into the drive or motherboard securely and may have worked loose. Reseat all drive connectors.<br /> <p>2. It's also possible a hard drive is failing. Use a system diagnostic to validate the drive or swap to another hard disk.<br /> <p>3. If the first bootable drive is missing (disconnected or dead) the BIOS may be attempting to boot from a second disk. Confirm the primary drive is working.<br /><br /> <p> <br /> <p>Hope this will help...Your response is very much appreciated...<br />

5 Routines to Speed up Your PC


1. Avoid Crowded Desktop

Do you have thousands and thousands of tiny little icons filling up your desktop? Each time our operating system loads it uses the memory to load all the files in the desk top; every time you refresh your computer it also steals your time to reload all the files in the desktop. So my word of advice is ‘KEEP YOUR DESKTOP CLEAN’. Keep only the important shortcuts in the desktop, keep your files in other folders say for example My Documents or in other Drives, etc.

2. Viruses, Malwares and Spywares

Every computer is prone to malwares; when it comes to windows machines they are more vulnerable. Regularly check your computer with a good antivirus software and an anti spyware software (Avast and Ad-Aware are two good free software for this purpose). Also using a firewall will help you prevent some attacks. Performing Regular Virus and Malware checks can help your computer stay healthier and thus improve performance.

3. Unused Programs

Most of us install programs for short period usages. If you have any program that you are no longer using, remove the unwanted programs (Revo Uninstaller is good software that can help you remove unwanted programs effectively). This can help you increase your computer’s performance.

4. Remove Programs from Startup

Have you ever noticed tons of tiny little icons in the right end of your task bar? They can cause your machine slow down dramatically because many of those programs start with your operating system and thus use the valuable resources we need to perform our activities.
You can remove them: Go to Start Menu -> Run and type msconfig and go to the startup tab. Remove all the programs you don’t want to start with your windows by de selecting them.

5. Optimise your hard disk performance

With time the hard disks get filled with fragmented files, corrupted files and temporary files, etc. This can cause your system to perform really slowly. If you don’t regularly check your hard drive for errors and defrag it then it can be deadly.

If you can follow these five suggestions regularly then you will have a stable performance from your pc. Stay tuned for other tips.

My desktop has a local area connection with limited to no connectivity. I had my desktop pc connected to a netgear n900 router and a vonage phone connected to the router's lan1 port. This caused i


Did this connection ever work before? I have a similar setup with Iristel and once in a while it goes down (Hurricane Leslie generated the problem last week).

Check whether the setup works without the Vonage device. This will tell you whether the problem is with your router or the Vonage box. If it works without the Vonage, the problem is in the Vonage box, you may find a good time to call Vonage for support.

I don't know whether the Vonage box (in my Iristel case it's a mediatrix 2 something) has to 'call home' before it lets your router set itself up.

If your router does not work without the Vonage, you have a simpler problem, the router is the issue. You can reconnect the Vonage and if the phones work, this confirms that the router is the problem. At least you can use the phones.

With the router, you need to log in to the admin screens and poke around until you find the problem. It is always a good idea to only change one thing at a time and always remember what changed immediately before the problem was noticed.

My computer keeps shutting down randomly. Also when i try to use F10 it will not respond if i try and run error checking the system will crash/shut down or give me a black screen. Basicly it randomly...


Possibilities:
1. overheating, and automatic shutdown.
Check that the fans are working.

2. bad RAM, causing "random" crashing.
On a "good" computer, download the free 'MEMTEST86+' software, and run it, to test your RAM.

3. Leaking capacitors on motherboard, causing "voltage-spikes", leading to "random" errors.

4. Bad disk-drive. Remove the disk-drive.
Connect it as a "slave" drive in another computer,
and run 'CHKDSK' ("Check Disk") to look for problems.

Problem connecting to Gnutella network Bearshare 5.2.5


Hi,
This happens often when using Norton & updating. All you need is to remove the previous 'exception rule' and re-add it, so remove BearShare & re-add it as an exception for Norton. Only run one firewall. So choose between Norton & XP's firewall. The reason for this is Norton & XP's firewall clash, & cause problems including less security.

Let us know if you need further clarification.

My disk drive is not loading on my Toshiba laptop


i am guessing you have windows xp installed
in your control panel go to admin tools computer management.Open disk management right click rescan all drives it should but your drive back. the computer think you hard disk is a removable drive.
if this did not fix then you have a regestery problem which is very hard to repair because messing around it there can cause windows to stop totally if the wrong files are changed.
