'Tradedoubler' A few weeks ago an uninvited guest appeared on my computer called 'Tradedoubler'. It appears as a blank page when I click on a banner to confirm entry into some competitions displacing the subject in the address bar. I tried looking it up on the net but all I got was a blank page again. Seems a bit pointless to me. Richard435

Hi,

First Download AVG Free addition and run a system scan. If that doesn't remove it, try this:

Download SDFix and save it to your desktop.
reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following :
Restart your computer
After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, tap the F8 key continually;
a menu with a bunch of options should appear;
Select the option "Run Windows in Safe Mode" and press "Enter".
(when it says your are running in safe mode and gives you a yes or no option, choose yes.
Login with your normal account (if you have users set up).
On the desktop, right click the SDFix.zip folder and choose Extract All,
Open the extracted folder and double click RunThis.bat to start the script.
Type Y to begin the script.
It will remove the Trojan Services then make some repairs to the registry and prompt you to press any key to Reboot.
Press any Key and it will restart the PC.
When the PC restarts the Fixtool will run again and complete the removal process then display Finished, press any key to end the script and load your desktop icons.
Once the desktop icons load the SDFix report will open on screen and also save into the SDFix folder as Report.txt

That should clear it up... if not, I'll get you to run a HIJackthis report and post it.

Why does the belkin guest access page appear? Have had PC for over 2 years and last week this page started to appear for the first time.


There is an option in your router to disable that option. You have to get into the settings for the router you have. Typically you can open up a web browser and type 192.168.2.1 and it should give you a log in window. If you have not set an admin password for the router just leave it blank and hit ok. Look on the left column to find "guest access". Click on that and you will see the option to click disable.

Hope this helps

Turn on your PC in safe mode by Pressing F8 on the keyboard immediately the PC is turned on or at start up.

A booting option will come up, choose safe mode and press enter on your key board.

Wait a while for it to boot up. After booting perform system restore.

Follow below procedures to perform the system restore;
  • Start => All Programs => Accessories => System Tools => and click the System Restore. System restore will run and here you should see the Welcome System Restore page appear. Click Restore my computer button to an early time if it's not already selected. Click next to continue the steps.
  • There is on your laptop screen a Restore Point page appear, you can select it and then click the most recent system checkpoint it, click a restore point list. After you click the Next button, System Restore message may appear that lists configuration changes that System Restore will create. Click OK.
Your computer will be restarted after the restore and that would be all.

Try the Digitizer pro again, after the system restore is complete.

Good luck.

I cannot creat a wireless network


What OS are you running? If XP:



There are two ways to configure your wireless router: using Windows Connect Now and manually.

• If you don't have a router that supports Windows Connect Now, you need to manually configure your router:
1.
Using the network cable that came with your wireless router, temporarily connect your computer to one of the wired network ports on your wireless router (any port that isnt labeled Internet, WAN, or WLAN).
2.
Turn your computer on; it will automatically connect to your router.
3.
Open Microsoft Internet Explorer and type in the address to configure your router, as described in your router's instruction manual.
4.
Create a password if a prompt appears. The address and password you use will vary depending on what type of router you have, so refer to the instructions included with your router.

Here is the general login user and passwords

3Com
http://192.168.1.1
admin

D-Link
http://192.168.0.1

(leave blank)
Linksys
http://192.168.1.1

Netgear
http://192.168.0.1
admin
password


Internet Explorer will show your router's configuration page. Most of the default settings should be fine, but you should configure three items:
Set your wireless network name (known as the SSID) to something unique that does not identify your name or address.
Enable Wi-Fi Protected Access 2 (WPA2) encryption to help prevent uninvited guests from connecting to your wireless network.
Note: We don't recommend using WEP. WPA-2 is more secure. If you try WPA-2 and it doesn’t work, we recommend that you upgrade your network adapter to one that works with WPA-2.
Set your administrative password to prevent others from configuring your router.
The exact steps you follow will vary depending on the type of router you have. After each configuration setting (SSID, WEP, and administrative password), be sure you click Save Settings, Apply, or OK to save your changes.
Note: The pictures in this section show Linksys wireless equipment. Equipment from other manufacturers will vary in appearance. For example, to save your settings in Linksys, you click Save Settings. Other equipment may have a different display, and you may have to click Apply or OK.
SSID or naming your networkA service set identifier, or SSID, identifies your network. Choose a unique name that you're confident none of your neighbors will use, but don't specify your name or your address. This is not a security tool, so you don't need to make the SSID complex.


Help prevent uninvited guests from connecting to your wireless network. To learn how, read Implement WPA2-Personal wireless security on a Windows XP SP2-based computer.


Administrative passwordThe last configuration change you should make is to the administrative password. Just like any other password, the administrative password should not be a word you can find in the dictionary, and it should be a combination of letters, numbers, and symbols. Be sure you can remember this password, because you'll need it if you ever have to change your router's settings.


Connect your computers and devicesIf your computer does not have wireless network support built in, you can install a wired or a wireless network adapter. Windows XP will automatically detect the new adapter and might prompt you to insert the CD that came with it. The on-screen instructions will guide you through the configuration process.
Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) is not required for wireless networking, but it does make setting one up much easier. SP2 also helps protect you against viruses, worms, and other Internet intruders. To install SP2, visit Microsoft Update. The steps below apply only if you're using SP2. Windows XP will show an icon with a notification that says it has found wireless networks.


To connect your computer to your wireless network
1.
Right-click the wireless network icon in the lower right corner of your screen, and then click View Available Wireless Networks


2.
The Wireless Network Connection window appears and displays your wireless network listed with the SSID you chose. If you don't see your network, click Refresh network list in the upper left corner. Click your network, and then click Connect in the lower right corner.


3. Windows XP prompts you to enter a key. Type the encryption key that you wrote down earlier in both the Network key and Confirm network key boxes, and then click Connect.


Windows XP will show its progress as it connects to your network. If the Wireless Network Connection window continues to show Acquiring Network Address, you may have mistyped the encryption key—click Cancel and return to step 3.



After you're connected, you can close the Wireless Network Connection window. Now you're ready to browse the Web wirelessly. You can also create a wireless network in your home that connects your computers, printers, cameras, games, and other accessories for easy access and enjoyment.

Time has nothing to do with how long a toner cartridge will last. What is the page count on the cartridge?
Don't expect too much from it if it is the original cartridge that came with the printer as they have a very short fill.
