I'm not sure what model my Dell is (its a desktop), all i know is that it is about 7 years old. But I had to put something legit in the Product description! Here is what my (blue) screen says on my computer: A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. The problem seems to be caused by the following file: smccs.sys. An attempt was made to write to read-only memory. If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps: Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installation ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any windows updates you might need. If problems continue disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select advanced startup options, and then select safe mode. Technical info: ***Stop: 0x000000BE (0x804e295c, ox004e2161, 0xF93F0BA4, 0x0000000B) *** smccs.sys - Address F9973342 base at F9973000, Datestamp 4771299a Beginning dump of physical memory Physical memory dump complete, Contact your system administrator or technical support.

I would suggest that you go out and buy a current generation external drive, connect the firefly and new drive to your old dell, pull the data off and crush the firefly. Why would you trust any harddrive over 5 years of age with important data. Plus if I am reading the model correctly this is a 20Gb harddisk which is not practical for current backups or storage due to increased sizes.
Depending on the desktop you could add a new hard drive and make it the OS/Boot drive with Win 7. Your old drive with the pictures on it will become a data drive. If you don't know how to make the new drive the boot drive or the desktop does not have room for a 2nd drive it might be a lot easier to take the old drive and put it in a USB external enclosure.
Malwarebytes is good cleanup utility.
Do not use IE, to many vulnerabilities, Chrome of Firefox is better..
Not sure the connection between changing broadband providers and passwords.....
Fans working? Maybe a PSU failure? Replace CMOS Battery. Reseat/replace Memory Mods. It's getting a bit old. Hard to say with a older computer thing start to go one by one. I replaced a PSU after 7 years. CMOS battery dead, replaced, Then the Sound Failed, new sound card. etc. I stripped it of useful parts and sent it out into the world.
It might be best to upgrade your computer to something newer. You can even find something used on www.craigslist,org or www.ebay.com. I wouldnt put any money into a 10 year old computer. If you really want to upgrade to USB 2.0 - you'll most likely have software issues to overcome, too. Without knowing the full situation, it wouldnt be right to advise you to put money toward upgrading anything on your computer. Good luck.
Yes, this online back up ad can be annoying at the best of times.
The best thing to do is to completely uninstall Dell Datasafe from the computer.
Go to the control panel and look for programs and features (this is vista) uninstall a program in Windows 7. There should be 3 datasafe programs for you to uninstall, once you have uninstalled all 3 programs restart your computer and the problem should be solved.
