ERROR CONSOLE POP UP ON COMPUTER


You've got a virus or some type of infection.

Go to www.google.com and in the search box type:"Download cnet Malwarebytes" (without the quotes). Download andinstall malwarebytes from the sites download.cnet/malwarebytes. When thesite opens up click on the Green Download button on the left. Do notclick the Red Download button, that's junk. When it finishes installing the GuiInterface will open up with an offer to Accept a Trial Version orDecline. CLICK DECLINE you want the totally free version. Run aQUICK SCAN. As it scans, if it finds infections the number will be inred. When it finishes scanning, click SHOW RESULTS. A notepad textdocument will open up showing you the results. You can close the textdocument and go back to the Gui Interface where you will click REMOVE SELECTEDRESULTS. The objects will already be selected for you. When itfinishes removing the objects click ok and it will sometimes reboot yourmachine.

If the system won't let you do the things above then try doing them in the SAFE MODE WITH NETWORKING mode. Turn your computer off, then hit the power button to turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key until you see Safe Mode option. Scroll down and select the SAFE MODE WITH NETWORKING option. This option will most likely keep the virus on lock down and and give you internet capability. Safe Mode will look different than what you are used to seeing. The screen will be darker and the icons will be bigger, that's normal.

Dear sir yesturday i download anti virus & office2007, & i m not able to find this programe & also before i have cyber link webcame not i cant find,also & it is not working also,


Depending on the operating system for your computer, downloaded files can be on the Desktop, in a folder called Downloads or My Downloads, or your My Documents or Documents folders.
According to the HP website, this operating system should be Windows XP.

If you do not know the name of the files that you downloaded, you cannot search for them.
To find the folder that your downloads go to:
EASY WAY: Go to http://regserve.spywaretruth.net; click on the download now button in the middle of the screen. When the dialog box pops up it will ask you to save the file. Click on this Save File button. The next dialog box will show you at the top, the name for the folder your downloads go to. If this dialog box says Desktop, your files will be on the main start-up screen. If it says My Documents check that folder. If it says Downloads, check the folder above it by clicking on the BLACK ARROW to the right of the Save in folder name. Look at the folder name above the Downloads folder. Usually this folder is called My Documents. In this case the folder you are looking for can be found by double clicking on the My Documents Folder, then looking for Downloads.

If this helps you, please accept my answer.

Each time i turn on my computer my printer re-installs


Step one: Uninstall the software
Even if the HP software did not install successfully, there might be elements of the software installed on your computer. Use your product software CD to remove the HP software. If you no longer have the product software CD, skip to Method two: Uninstall the software without the product software CD .
Method one: Uninstall the software with the product software CD

1.
Insert the product software CD into the computer's CD drive.
2.
If the Welcome to HP screen opens, click Cancel or Exit .
3.
On the Windows taskbar, click Start , click My Computer , right-click the CD drive, and then click Open .
NOTE: If you double-click the file, the HP Installer launches. Click Exit , and then right-click the file to open.
4.
Double-click the Util folder, and then double-click the ccc folder. A list of files on the software CD displays.
5.
Double-click the Uninstall_L2.bat file. The Run window opens again, with the path to the Uninstall_L2.bat file displayed.
6.
Click OK to start the software removal, and then follow the on-screen instructions.

Method two: Uninstall the software without the product software CD
If you do not have the product software CD, you can download the software from the HP Web site, and then use the downloaded file to perform the uninstall procedure.

1.
Open a new window to browse to the Select Software and Drivers page:
1.
Right-click this link, Support and Drivers download page , and then select Open Link in New Window .
2.
If prompted, type your product number. You might also need to click it in a list of similar products.
3.
Select your operating system. The Select Software and Drivers page opens.
2.
In the Driver section, click the Full Feature Software and Drivers option.
3.
Click Download only . This option allows you to install the software at any time after the download completes.
4.
The File Download - Security Warning window opens. Click Save , and then browse to the location on your computer where you want to save the file. Consider saving the file to your desktop for easy reference later in these steps.
5.

6.
When the file downloads, double-click the icon for the downloaded file.

When the installation screen launches, click Exit .

Follow these steps to turn off the Terminate and Stay Resident (TSR) programs running in the background on the operating system. These programs activate computer utilities like antivirus software, but are not required for the computer to function. Occasionally, TSRs prevent the product software from installing correctly. In Windows XP, the MSCONFIG utility prevents TSR programs and services from starting.

1.
Click Start , and then click Run . In the Open dialog box, type msconfig , and then click OK .

Restart your computer. Upon seeing the boot screen press F8 sometimes more than once. You will get an option window of which you chose "Safe Mode" you will get to the log in screen. Select administrator. Select "Yes" to the window that pops up. Move all the files in your my documents folder under c:\Documents and settings\HP Owner\My Documents. If you don't your stuff will be deleted. Move it to a different folder like c:\Backup.
Then go into user profiles in control panel and select HP Owner then change password. Then reboot and you will be good.
