Click the Start button. Choose Run. Type in msconfig, then click OK. In the window that comes up, click the tab Startup (on the top line). Look for TrueVector Service and uncheck the box next to it. Don't change anything else. Click OK. The next time you start the computer, Msconfig will pop up to tell you you've made a change. Tell it not to start next time and close the window.
That should do it.
By the way, you said you DELETED Zone Alarm. You can't just delete a program. You need to remove it by going to Control Panel and then Add/Remove Programs. Otherwise there will be remnants of the program that might still try to run.

How to double firefox speed

Firefox is in my opinion the best browser ever made until now. It includes:<br />-improved tabbed browsing<br />-pop up blocking<br />-integrated Goggle search<br />-enhanced privacy controls<br />-built-in phishing protection<br />-online spell checking<br />-lots of themes, interfaces, and extensions/addons<br /> Mozilla Firefox officially supports:<br />-Microsoft Windows<br />-Linux<br />-Mac OS X<br /> Unofficial Support:<br />-Free BSD<br />-OS/2<br />-Solaris<br />-SkyOS<br />-BeOS<br />-XP Professional x64 Edition<br /> Now here are some Tips&Tricks that can help you double the speed of Firefox.<br /> 1. Type about:config in the address bar and then press Enter.<br /> 2. In the filter search bar type network.http.pipelining. Be sure the value field is set true,if not double-click to set true.<br /> HTTP is the application-layer protocol that most web pages are transferred with. In HTTP 1.1, multiple requests can be sent before any responses are received. This is known as pipelining. Pipelining reduces page loading times, but not all servers support it.<br /> 3. Go back to the filter search bar and type network.http.pipelining.maxrequests. Double-click this option and set its value to 8.<br /> 4. In the filter search bar and type network.http.proxy.pipelining. Once opened double-click on it and set it to true.<br /> <br />5. In IPv6-capable DNS servers, an IPv4 address may be returned when an IPv6 address is requested. It is possible for Mozilla to recover from this misinformation, but a significant delay is introduced.<br />Type network.dns.disableIPv6 in the filter search bar and set this option to true by double clicking on it.<br /> 6. CONTENT INTERRUPT PARSING<br />This preference controls if the application will interrupt parsing a page to respond to UI events. It does not exist by default.<br />Right-click (Apple users ctrl-click) anywhere in the about:config window, select New and then Boolean from the pop-up menu. Then:<br /> A. Enter content.interrupt.parsing in the New boolean value pop-up window and click OK<br /> B. When prompted to choose the value for the new boolean, select true and click OK.<br /> 7. Rather than wait until a page has completely downloaded to display it to the user, Mozilla applications will regularly render what has been received to that point. This option controls the maximum amount of time the application will be unresponsive while rendering pages.<br /> Right-click (Apple users ctrl-click) anywhere in the about:config window, select New and then Integer from the pop-up menu.<br /> A. Enter content.max.tokenizing.time in the New integer value pop-up window and click OK<br /> B. You will be prompted to enter a value. Enter 2250000 and click OK.<br /> 8. CONTENT NOTIFY INTERVAL <br /> This option sets the minimum amount of time to wait between reflows. Right-click (Apple users ctrl-click) anywhere in the about:config window, select New and then Integer from the pop-up menu.<br /> <br /> A. Type content.notify.interval in the New integer value pop-up window and click OK.<br /> B. You will be prompted to enter a value. Enter 750000 and click OK.<br /> 9. CONTENT NOTIFY ONTIMER<br /> A. This option sets if to reflow pages at an interval any higher than that specified by content.notify.interval. Right-click (Apple users ctrl-click) anywhere in the about:config window and select New and then Boolean from the pop-up menu.<br /> B. Type content.notify.ontimer in the New boolean value pop-up window and click OK.<br /> C. You will be prompted to choose the value for the new boolean. Select true and click OK.<br /> 10. Notify Backoffcount<br />This option controls the maximum number of times the content will do timer-based reflows. After this number has been reached, the page will only reflow once it is finished downloading. Right-click (Apple users ctrl-click) anywhere in the about:config window and select New and then Integer from the pop-up menu.<br /> A. Enter content.notify.backoffcount in the New integer value pop-up window and click OK.<br /> B. You will be prompted to enter a value. Enter 5 and click OK.<br /> 11. CONTENT SWITCH THRESHOLD<br />You can interact with a loading page when content.interrupt.parsing is set to true. When a page is loading, the application has two modes: a high frequency interrupt mode and a low frequency interrupt mode. The first one interrupts the parser more frequently to allow for greater UI responsiveness during page load.<br /> The low frequency interrupt mode interrupts the parser less frequently to allow for quicker page load. The application enters high frequency interrupt mode when you move the mouse or type on the keyboard and switch back to low frequency mode when you had no activity for a certain amount of time. This preference controls that amount of time. Right-click (Apple users ctrl-click) anywhere in the about:config window and select New and then Integer from the pop-up menu.<br /> A. Enter content.switch.threshold in the New integer value pop-up window and click OK.<br /> B. You will be prompted to enter a value. Enter 750000 and click OK.<br /> <br />12. NGLAYOUT INITIALPAINT DELAY<br />Mozilla applications render web pages incrementally, they display what's been received of a page before the entire page has been downloaded. Since the start of a web page normally doesn't have much useful information to display, Mozilla applications will wait a short interval before first rendering a page. This preference controls that interval. Right-click (Apple users ctrl-click) anywhere in the about:config window and select New and then Integer from the pop-up menu.<br /> A. Enter nglayout.initialpaint.delay in the New integer value pop-up window and click OK.<br /> B. You will be prompted to enter a value. Enter 0 and click OK.<br /> <br />

What to Do When One of Your Dual Monitors Stops Working

You have two monitors connected to your Windows XP PC and one suddenly stops working. Any windows you have open on that monitor cannot be seen and to make the problem worse, it may be your primary monitor so the task bar with the start button and clock and all your desktop icons are now out of reach.

First things first: Make sure it has power. The power cord could be loose on either end, ensure it is properly connected. Also, cycle the power switch a couple of times on the monitor to see if has become intermittent.

Next, make certain that the signal cable is secure. Sometimes these will become loose and the monitor will go into sleep mode.

If you have determined that the monitor just isn't going to be revived and you need to access your system here are some helpful tips:

We will assume a worst case scenario here; the only monitor working has nothing on it but a blank desktop background.

1. Right click on the desktop background and choose properties from the pop-up menu that appears by left clicking on the word 'properties'

2. Press and Hold the 'Alt' key and tap the spacebar one time. This selects a hidden menu that will allow you to move that property window which we must imagine is hiding on the nonworking monitor.

3. Press the letter 'M' key on the keyboard. This locks the window into a move mode. You can now use the arrow keys and your mouse to move the window into view as if we are sliding it from the nonworking monitor to the working monitor. If you are going to use your mouse to move the window, you must press at least one arrow key first to lock the cursor to the window.

4. Choose the Settings tab by left clicking on it.

5. Press the 'Identify' button by left clicking on it. This will help you determine which monitor is working and how it is referenced in the settings. Click on the graphical representation of that monitor. If you saw a large 1 click on the 1, if you saw a large 2, click on the 2.

6. Make sure both boxes have check marks next to "Use this Device as the Primary Monitor" and "Extend my Windows Desktop Onto This Monitor". If necessary, click on the graphical icon for the nonworking monitor and uncheck both of these boxes. IMPORTANT: Before clicking apply, we must first ensure that the computer will not restart itself.

7. Click on the 'Advanced' button. If you do not see the Advanced window, use the same technique as shown in 2 & 3 above to bring it into view. Select the center option labeled "Apply the new display settings without restarting" . Click OK. This will take you back to the 'display properties' and now you can click 'Apply'. A timer box may pop up asking if you wish to keep these settings, choose 'yes'.

Those seven steps should now make your working monitor the primary display so you can take your nonworking monitor in for repairs.

Here is a quick tip to get hidden windows on to your primary screen when they are 'off-screen' either because of a failed monitor or a display resolution change:

1. Right Click on the task-bar (that is the blank part between the start button on the lower left and the clock on the lower right). Make sure you click where there is no other icons, it must be a blank area. A pop-up menu will appear.

2. Select 'Cascade Windows' from the list by left clicking on it. This will bring all the windows from off-screen and stack them onto your primary desktop.

3. Optional: If you only have a few windows open, you may wish to repeat 1 & 2 and select 'Tile Windows Horizontally' or 'Tile Windows Vertically' so that you can see the contents of each window properly organized on the screen.

I hope these tips prove useful for you as they have saved me many, many times over the years. This is especially true when the work needs saved but it was open on the failed monitor. It is also true when a high resolution monitor has been changed for a lower resolution. Windows that are opened and closed at a position on the screen will be reopened to that position the next time they are opened. If the monitor has been changed, then those windows can actually open 'off-screen' where you can't see them. This gives the illusion that you have a program that isn't responding when in fact it is happily being displayed out of view.

Severe corruption of Windows, most likely cause by viruses. Stop repairing it and do a full reinstall. If you get the warning even after that then the hard disk is dying, replace it before reinstalling one more time.

On the right hand side of montior the is a screen

There might be a tool on your computer about that, you can check the utilities programs on your computer by searching in the Program groups of your Start menu and disable it. Your manual may give you some idea how to disable it. If you right click on that pop up window you might see an option to stop it from popping up. If those are not working, press CTL+ALT+DEL and select the task manager, then kill the process with a similar name. But you don't want to kill too much otherwise other applications may be affected too. Hope that helps.

True vector continually has problems and has to shut down

True Vector is a component of Zone Alarm.

I reccomend in this case to update to the most absolute version of ZoneAlarm to avoid any problems.

Recently there have been a flurry of problems caused by Windows Updates release which may have the potential to break the program or make it close to inoperable.
