Vista Home Premium 64 bit. Iam getting error 80070005 stating it cannot search for windows updates and it encountered an unknown error. I am not a techie, just a grandma who uses the computer alot.


This error can occur for many reasons but generally assocated with IIS connection to a database. Seeing how your are a grandam and more than likely not connecting to anything and that your machine will not connect to windows update. I suspect you have a trogen, rootkit or some other malware. See if you can update your virus software and run a scan it may or may not detect anything. The worst case is that you will need to use your backup disks and re-install windows. You may need to get some onsite help with this. Your machine not being able to connect to either virsus update or windows update is always a dead give away that you have some form of malware infecting your PC.

Enhance your pc perfomance


<span> Control Inactive System Tray Icons <p><img src="SystemTray.jpg" />You don't have to hide or show all the icons in your system tray-you can control their disappearing acts. Right-click on the taskbar and select Properties. Click on the checkbox next to "Hide inactive icons" (if it's not checked by default), then click on the Customize button. For each item on this list, you can choose "Hide when inactive," "Always hide," or "Always show" options to decide what you'll see and when.<br /> Fit More Icons on Your Desktop <p>If your screen is so cluttered with Word documents and program shortcuts that you can't see the rolling meadows of your wallpaper, you don't need to move piles of stuff to the Recycling Bin. Just change the amount of space between icons. Right-click on the desktop, select Properties, then click on the Appearance tab, and click the Advanced button. In the "Item" drop-down, scroll down to Icon Spacing (Horizontal) and Icon Spacing (Vertical); changing the value in the "Size" field will move icons closer together (while increasing the number will move them farther apart). When you're done, click OK. To make your existing icons follow these rules, right-click on the desktop, select "Arrange Icons By" and then click Align to Grid, then go back to the same menu and click "Auto Arrange."<br /> Shut Down from Your Desktop <p>If you're trying to eliminate every extraneous mouse click, you can shut down your computer with an icon on the desktop. Right-click on your desktop, click "New," and then click "Shortcut." In the "Type the location of the item" field, type "shutdown -s -t 00" to give you a way to shut down the computer immediately. (Change the -s to -r to create a reboot shortcut instead.)<br /> Change What Programs Start When Windows Does <p>You can prevent a lot of apps forcing Windows into chilled-molasses boot times-without uninstalling anything. Click Start, then "Run...," and type msconfig. This brings up the System Configuration Utility window. Click on the Startup tab to see a list of all the apps slated to start when you boot up Windows. Click the check mark next to any you don't want, and then click OK to save your choices.<br /> Type With an Onscreen Keyboard <p><img src="On-Screen-Keyboard.jpg" />Whether you have trouble with your hands or you just prefer using the mouse, typing with Windows' onscreen keyboard can be a great convenience. Navigate to Start &gt; All Programs &gt; Accessories &gt; Accessibility, and click "On-Screen Keyboard." Click OK to clear the dialogue box and then start "typing"-you can even change the settings to "press" keys just by hovering your mouse over the letter you want (enable this feature by selecting "Typing Mode" from the Settings menu).<br /> No-wait Screen Savers <p>Don't want to wait for your screen saver to kick in? Create a shortcut to it just as you would for any other program by hitting Windows key + F to search your computer and click on "All files and folders." Type "*.scr" in the "All or part of the file name" field to find every screen saver file on your computer. In the resulting list, right-click and drag the screen saver you want to your desktop. Whenever you want it to start, just double-click its icon.<br /></span>

Uninstall the new upgrade and see if it works better. If that doesn't help try uninstall/reinstall the printer software. I'm not sure if an MS Updae has caused this or not but I had trouble wih mine and just reinstalled it about 20 minutes ago but haven't tested it yet!

I plugged my Memorex TravelDrive into my computer. It has always worked perfectly. This time I got the message that the USB device was not recognized and I can't get into my files.


THE FOLLOWING IS COURTESY OF MICROSOFT Help and Support

When you plug a USB device into a Windows XP-based computer immediately after the computer comes out of standby (S3) or hibernate (S4), the computer may not recognize the USB device. When this issue occurs, the USB device may be listed in Device Manager as an unknown device, and you may receive the following warning message:
Unrecognized device has been found.

This issue occurs because, when the computer comes out of S3 or S4, there is a five- to ten-second period when the selective suspend feature of the USB driver will interfere with detection of a new USB device connection. The time period depends on several factors. This includes the following factors:• Host controller hardware
• Attached hubs
• Attached devices
• USB driver versions
• Support for USB 2.0
• Additional system hardware or configurations that may change the timing
There may be other reasons that a USB device is not detected

Method 1
loadTOCNode(2, 'workaround'); After the computer comes out of S3 or S4, wait five to ten seconds before you plug the USB device into the computer or hub.

Method 2
After the computer comes out of S3 or S4, unplug the USB device, and then plug the device back into the computer or hub.

Method 3
Use the Device Manager to scan for new hardware. Follow these steps: 1. Click Start, click Run, type Devmgmt.msc, and then click OK..
2. On the Action menu, click Scan for hardware changes. This causes Windows to recognize new devices.
3. Close Device Manager and Control Panel.

Method 4
Disable power management of the USB hub.
Note If you perform the following procedure, you may also reduce the battery life on a portable computer.
To disable power management on the USB hub, follow these steps: 1. Click Start, click Run, type devmgmt.msc, and then click OK.
2. Expand the Universal Serial Bus controllers node, and then follow these steps for each USB Root Hub that is listed: a. Right-click the USB Root Hub, and then click Properties.
b. Click the Power Management tab.
c. Click to clear the Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power check box, and then click OK.

Try restarting the computer with the device in. Sometimes if you clear the memory that might help (stating the machine without memory then put it back and start it again).
