Programs crash with no explanation.

First I would Click Start/Programs/Accessories and you are looking for the RUN command. Sometimes depending on your operating system you will see it as soon as you hit Start or Programs or All Programs. Once you get the run commad open type in "msconfig.exe" and click ok. This is the system's configuration window, Click the Tab that says Startup. The only two columns you are concerned with is the Startup Item column and the Command column. You can expand those two columns by placing your mouse pointer between two columnar headings and it will turn into a + sign so you can drag the column to see more of it. Notice that all the items have a check mark beside it under the Startup Item column. That check mark means that this application will run everytime you start your computer. Now look for items that have a check mark beside them but there is nothing under the command column or location column. If you see that remove the check mark from the item, it's a virus that's trying to hide. Also look for Startup Items that have the command of: c:\Documents and Setting\Your Userid Account Name\Local Settings\Application Data\xxxxxxx . If after application data you don't see some recognizable program then remove the check mark. Most virus attach itself to a user account under the local settings and application data area. Also if you see a startup item "dumprep 0-k" or similar, remove the check mark from it. *** Don't worry about if you remove a check mark from something you are unsure of, you can always go back in and place the check mark on it. When done click Ok and select the option to Exit Without Restart. This simply stops the virus from being able to get started when you boot your computer. You will actually have to kill it with a virus protection scan in the next steps.

Now you can then run your virus protection scans to make sure you don't have a virus causing the problem. I would take the time to run Spybot Search & Destroy and also I would Run AVG afterwards. In fact after spybot search and destroy finishes, I would turn my computer off, then turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see the SAFE MODE option. Select Safe Mode and let your system boot up then run AVG in Safe Mode. AVG running in safe mode will not require any intervention from you once it gets started. However it will look a little different to you because the normal GUI Interface will not be there, instead you will have a Black DOS type window running will white letters scrolling as it scans. 99% of the viruses require the Internet Connection to function. As long as the internet connection is active the virus can function, hide and do all sorts of things. Remember you got the virus by some process of being on the internet. SAFE MODE disables the Internet so the virus cannot function or hide. Let AVG seek it out and kill it in SAFE MODE.

MAKE YOUR S60 DEVICE FASTER AND RECOVER RAM In the next few posts i will...


In the next few posts i will post some tricks to make your phone faster and also recover precious RAM.

If you are running low on phone memory and have a lot of apps installed, you can recover a part of it by transferring help files to the memory card.
open Xplore or fxplorer and move C/resource/help to E/resource/help.
All the apps will find it automatically in the E drive.
This trick will increase your phone memory thereby making your phone a little bit faster.

first use jbak taskman to kill lifeblogobserver process
make sure x-plorer is set to show hidden files
then go to c/data/lifeblog/database
now delete the lifeblog.dbfile
reboot phone
now use jbak taskman to kill lifeblogobserverprocess once again!
then go to c/data/lifeblog/database
select llifeblog.db file and press 6 tick hidden and read-only reboot phone. You'll notice the phone's boot up is faster and it will also release some RAM.
if you want to use lifeblog again go toc/data/lifeblog/database
select llifeblog.db file and press 6
and untick hidden and read-only

3. STOP AUTO STARTUP OF APPS ( for a faster boot up)
You can disable the third party applications to boot at start . These applications boot at startup and slow down the phone,s startup. In order to stop them to boot them use the following process.
The info of all the start up apps is stored in c:\private\100059c9\start.dat
whenever you allow any application to start automatically at startup the file start.dat is updated. The simplest method to disable the apps to load at boot up is to simply rename the start.dat file i renamed it to start.dat.txt. After renaming it your phone will boot as it boots after a fresh formating.
When ever you again want to enable the startup apps just remove the .txt extension.
You can also edit start.dat file to enable some applications to boot at start up and disabiling others but i don,t know how to edit .dat file. But you can edit it if you know how to edit it.
The easiest method of editing the .dat file is to delete the old start.dat file and then go to the applications which you want to boot at start up and rechange their setting ie (enable auto start=yes). A new .dat file will be created automatically which will only boot those apps which you want.
You can even further boost up your phone start up by renaming files like
C:\private\100012a5\DBS_101F99FE_NSml_Adapterlog.d b
C:\private\100012a5\DBS_101F99FE\NSml_adapterlog?? ?.dat
C:\private\100012a5\DBS_101F9A02_nsmldmfotaadapter .db
To .txt files or simply delete them.
Deleting all these files is the other name of restoring your phone to factory setting without losing any application data. Deleting these files also deletes sim data mean the network data of all the sims used in a phone. When you will rename all these files your all phone setting will be lost like clock time ,month date year. When you will again set different settings like adjust the ,adjust the date duplicate files of all the files you renamed or deleted will be created mean fresh data files .to again gainyour original setting as they were before applying the hack just delete all the duplicate files and rename all the above files as they were before renaming and restart your phone all your setting will be restored.

Wen i use in my pc mp3 is playing...wen use no data can help 4 me solve tat problm pls..

It is likely starting up when you computer is turned on. Follow these steps to get to your startup folder and disable anything you may not recognize:
Change Current Startup Programs
  • 1

    Click the Windows "Start" button and type "msconfig" in the search text box. This opens the System Configuration console.

  • 2

    Click the "Startup" tab. This gives you a view of all the programs installed as startup options on your computer.

  • 3

    Check boxes of the applications you want to start when you boot the computer. For programs you no longer want to start, clear the check box.

  • 4

    Click "Apply" and close the configuration window. A popup window will ask if you want to reboot the computer. Click "Restart" to reboot the computer and save the changes.

    When i start my computer this allways popup say i need to reinstall my RTL120.bp1


    This might be an issue with a program attempting to load in startup that is either missing files or has been otherwise deleted without deleting its startup registry entry.

    When you boot your computer, go to the start menu, go to run, type in "msconfig" without the quotes and press ok.

    This will open a new window, go to the Startup tab, eye through the items one by one, if anything there is something you DON'T need to start with the computer, then you can uncheck the box and press OK.

    This will require a restart. The best thing to try is to disable all startup to see if that fixes the issue, and then slowly activate what you KNOW is safe and necessary one by one!

    Hope I helped!

    Booting up in safe mode will allow you to open disk utility (Applications -> Utilities -> Disk Utility) and repair permissions / repair disk from there

    To start up into Safe Mode (to Safe Boot), do this:

    1. Be sure your Mac is shut down.
    2. Press the power button.
    3. Immediately after you hear the startup tone, hold the Shift key. The Shift key should be held as soon as possible after the startup tone, but not before the tone.
    4. Release the Shift key when you see the gray Apple icon and the progress indicator (looks like a spinning gear).

    Finder relaunch itself every minute

    I do not know if this will work for everyone, but it worked for me.

    It seems all to be linked to Stuffit and a preference called Stuffit AVR (Archive Via Rename): In your system preferences go to the bottom and click on the Stuffit AVR option. Click the Stuffit AVR tab  on the left, and click the "STOP" button. This should do the trick. For some reason this is cycling through our desktop/finder and causing so much of the frustration since this update.
    Hope this helps!

    Xp windows explorer delay w/ "open with"

    Sounds like you have too many background applications running that intercept right-clicks for their own functionality.
    Click Start>Run and type in "msconfig". This runs the configuration utility that shows your startup programs and services. Select the "Diagnostic Startp" option , then click "Apply" and follow the restart instructions. When your system reboots select cancel when asked to restore the settings. Now all those burdensome background running applications that sap your system resources will be eliminated (temporarily) and Windows can run without being dragged down.
    Try your issue again. If this time its quick and without the long lags you reported, you'll know that at least one of those startup applications is the culprit. Running msconfig again will allow you to restore the Normal Startup, and the Startup tab will allow you to remove selectively that application that is causing the issue. 
    One way to identify which one is the culprit is to restart normally (select the Normal Start option in msconfig and reboot) and once back up, do a ctrl-alt-del to bring up the Task Manager. Click the "Processes" tab and then click the heading "Mem Usage". This will sort running processes by how much memory resources they consume. 
    The memory hogs may not be the one giving you the problem, but it's likely that a heavy consumer is sapping the CPU cycles needed to handle your right-click pop-up menu and run-with selection. Make a note of the top heavy memory users (print a screenshot) and use this list to eliminate any that are also on the startup list back in msconfig. 
    Don't use the "End Process" button in the Task Manager to simply stop them, as you'll likely stop one that is critical to Windows functionality. Msconfig's Startup list just shows the ones that get started at Windows boot up and can be eliminated without crippling Windows - much safer. 
    Use your memory hog list to start eliminating, one at a time, the offending applications from the startup list until the issues is resolved. Its a little tedious, but helps clean up your system in the process. 
    Hope this helps.

    Every time i turn on windows the roxio media manager keeps loading and does not turn off. how do i get ride of it

    Once the system is booted up click the start button on the taskbar, click run, type msconfig in the box and enter. That gets you into the startup files where you can remove Roxio from the startup. That does not delete Roxio from the system, it just stops it from opening at startup. If Roxio starts upon start after that, then there is some application starting that requires Roxio, and you will need to address that issue. That rogue application should also be visible in the startup list so you can remove it thereby fixing the issue. Be sure to save the settings.
