    1. Make sure your GPS is in GARMIN interface mode. For older Garmin
    units, use GRMN/GRMN HOST WAITING mode.

    2. Make sure you are using the correct serial port on your computer.
    For most computers, COM1 is the serial port. Consult your computer
    manual for help.

    3. Make sure the serial cable is firmly connected to the GPS and to
    the computer. If you have the Garmin eTrex cable, be sure the cable
    is pushed ALL THE WAY into the slot on the back of your GPS.

    4. Verify that you have a working cable connection by updating your
    GPS firmware. You can do this even if your firmware is already
    up-to-date. Follow the instructions at
    http://www.garmin.com/support/download.j... If you cannot update your
    GPS firmware, contact Garmin tech support for assistance.


    Please send the EasyGPS_Message_Log.txt file after running the program. The EasyGPS_Message_Log.txt file is created and reset each time you run the program, so be sure to send it immediately after an error occurs. You will find it in the folder where EasyGPS.exe is installed. C:/Program Files/EasyGPS/ is the default location.



    Hope that helps.....

PC keeps rebooting itself after G Data software installed


You should not use G-Data antivirus anymore, because the Blue Screen error you are experiencing right now is due to incompatibility of the antivirus with the OS. Moreover, you have told us that other G-Data antivirus users have the same issue. So, you must not use it.
According to users and webpage reviews, some of the best and user-friendly free antiviruses are MSE, Avast, AVG, etc. I've used all of them and they are more or less equally good.
If you are using genuine windows you can use Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE). This one is very light-weight.
Dowload MSE here: windows.microsoft.com/MSE
If you are not using genuine windows or if you are not a windows user, you can use Avast or AVG.
Download Avast here: www.avast.com/free-antivirus-download Download AVG here: free.avg.com/us-en/free-antivirus-download

NOTE: You can get automatic or scheduled virus scans and signature updates with these anti-viruses also. :)
Hope this helps, Mrityunjay.

Windows 7 Updates Running TOO SLOW, or just plain "hanging up / freezing"??


Anyone out there in "Windows7ville" experiencing those DREADED slooooowww updates, or is it seeming to hang / freeze without actually downloading and installing your security updates??

I struggled with this exact same issue regarding Windows 7 Updates.. (SLOOOW download times, Win7 Update basically "hanging" at the "searching for updates" portion of the install procedure), you name it! Fortunately, I got fed-UP with these problems and "dug down deep" in researching for a "fool-proof" solution!

This issue apparently stems from the fact that Microsoft in all their "wisdom" decided to change how their update servers "hand out" their updates to computers requesting Windows 7-related updates, after Windows 8/8.1 was released.

Here's the fix(es) which worked for me:

First, we need to find out what version of Windows 7 (32 or 64 bit) we have:

Click the Start button. Right-click "Computer", and then left-click "Properties" from the resulting pop-up menu. This will bring up a new window showing what version of Windows 7 you have, what type of CPU, how much system RAM, and most importantly if it is 32 or 64-bit.

(For this solution, I'm assuming that one has the 64 bit version of Windows 7. If you have 32 bit, then at any time during this process you see a different choice to download the 32 bit version of an update, please do so. Also, you MUST have Service Pack 1 installed on Windows 7 for this guide to be successful. If you don't have it installed yet, please download the full installer and run it before continuing: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=5842

Make SURE you restart once SP1 has finished installing!)

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

First, click the "start button" (Lower-left corner of your screen.. looks like the windows logo in a "bubble"). In the search blank at the bottom of the "start menu", type in "cmd". When it shows the result, right-click it, and then left-click "Run as Administrator". Keep this window open, but shrunk-down and off to the side a bit, as you'll need to run a command a couple times during this process.

1.) Type in (or copy and paste this) into the command prompt:

net stop wuauserv

Press "enter" / "return". This will completely stop the background Windows Update service, preventing it from interrupting our repairs / updates to Windows Update.

2.) Download and run (I recommend Google Chrome or FireFox browser -- steer clear of using Internet Explorer, as it's FULL of non-fixable security flaws!!):

https://support.microsoft.com/kb/3138612

This will ask you if you're sure you'd like to run this. Just keep saying "yes" or "ok".. (basically give it a positive response until it finishes). When it's done, restart your PC.

3.) Once your PC has fully restarted and you're back at your desktop screen, (you can see your wallpaper and all your "usual" desktop icons), REPEAT STEP 1... Then go back onto the web. Download and run:

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3102810

Once again, give it "positive responses" if it asks if you're sure you want to install this update package... Restart your PC once more after it's done.

Now, If you'd like to get all the most needed and necessary security updates done and over-with in "one fell swoop", then download and install the "Windows 7 Convenience Update", which will get your PC up-to-speed and up-to-date with security fixes MUCH more quickly!!

(Again, please repeat Step 1 before continuing!)

First, we'll need to run a quick "service stack update" on the updater service. Download and Run:

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3020369

On the service stack update page, remember to pick from the first two choices, based on if you have 64 bit or 32 bit.

Restart your PC once it's finished!

Repeat Step 1.

Now, onto the "Convenience Update"

Download and Run:

For 64 Bit:
http://download.windowsupdate.com/d/msdownload/update/software/updt/2016/05/windows6.1-kb3125574-v4-x64_2dafb1d203c8964239af3048b5dd4b1264cd93b9.msu

For 32 Bit:
http://download.windowsupdate.com/d/msdownload/update/software/updt/2016/05/windows6.1-kb3125574-v4-x86_ba1ff5537312561795cc04db0b02fbb0a74b2cbd.msu

As "always", restart your PC once the update finishes!

I hope this helped someone! Please let me know if it did, and have a truly excellent day!

If you are checking the "install" box in the download manager, try checking "save file" instead. Then you can unzip the file and install from the desktop, or whichever folder you saved it to.

Vista updates


Yes, abort. Download FIWW (Free Internet Windows Washer). Run it for temp file and internet cache. Go to your computer manufacturer's website and check for software updates for your model. Also download Eusing's free registry cleaner and run it as a last resort.

PROBLEM DRIVERS


Go to the Holux support website at:
http://www.holux.com/JCore/en/support/downloadCenter.jsp

NOTE: All quote marks are added by me for emphasis only.

Under the "Select products Catagory" dropdown choose "GPS Receiver/Data Logger".
Under the "Select products series" dropdown choose "Mouse Type GPS Receiver" and

click on Submit. A new page opens showing various receivers. Scroll down to the GR-213u

GPS Receiver and see the one called "GR-213u Driver Program-Vista Driver". It is of a type

of file compression called "rar" which may require a unzip program. I use a free program,

"Secure Zip for Windows". Click on the little yellow box at the far right of the "GR-213u

Driver Program-Vista Driver" line. It will be labeled "9618869.rar". Save the file.
It should be found by clicking on the Vista START and then your user name & should be in

the "Downloads" folder as "9618869.rar".
Creat a new folder for the actual unzipped file by clicking on the the Vista START Icon

& then "Documents". Click on the "Organize" tab & then on the dropdown "New Folder".
Name the new folder "Holux Vista Drvr" & then open it.
Now back at the "Downloads" folder open (Unzip) the "9618869.rar" file. Copy the new

folder "GR-213u Driver Program-Vista Driver" to the "Holux Vista Drvr" folder you created

in "Documents", so that you can later delete all those files that may have built up in

"Downloads"folder from doing lots of downloading.
Open the "GR-213u Driver Program-Vista Driver" folder & see the setup file

"PL2303_Prolific_Vista_3301.exe". The size should be about 2724 KB. Open it to start the

driver install. Now you are almost done.
After Vista has done its driver install, go to "Control Panel" & open "Device Manager".

Now plug in your Holux GR-213 & the "Device Manager" should now show a new entry

called "Ports (COM & LPT). Click on the little + sign to expand it & you should see

"Prolific USB-to-Serial Comm Port (COM#)". The # represents your Comm Port number

used by the Holux. Right click on "Prolific USB-to-Serial Comm Port (COM#)" & click on

the dropdown "Properties". Click on the tab "Port Settings"at the top of the "Properties"

window. Change the value in "Bits per second" from 9600 to 4800 & click OK.
Hopefully you have installed the Holux Utility "GPS Viewer" with a shortcut on the

desktop. Open the "GPS Viewer" & click on "Scan". A new window "GPS Scanning" opens

showing GPS found at the same Comm Port # that shows in the "Device Manager". Click on

OK & the scan window closes now showing the same Comm Port#. Click on "Open GPS" &

then on "Cold Start or Warm Start" & all the satellites found should show up. You can close

the "GPS Viewer" & all the other open windows. If all went as described any software you

used with Win XP using GPS should work OK now with Vista.
Now run your software (MS S&T or whatever) & make sure its GPS Settings show the same

Comm Port# as in "GPS Viewer" & baud rate of 4800.

A8N32-SLI Deluxe - Can not Load 'ASUS UPDATE' fro CD


It's not you. Asus's program from the CD doesn't function as you might except. You'll need to download, ASUS Update V7.06.02 Install Program for Windows 2000/XP/2003 & 64bit Windows XP/2003 within Bios Utilities. And flash your Bios from a floppy. Than download the Bios version you want. Having trouble getting the file to unzip? Download again but this time choose a different site. Like (Global) instead.
