    yeh. I just found and renamed it HpqToaster.exe.bak. It's in Program Files\Hewlett-Packard\shared. Upon rebooting, Vista churned a couple of minutes, saying it was "reconfiguring updates". When done, I ran ccCleaner and removed residue Toaster ActiveX stuff. Performance seemed improved. Upon running ControlPanel>SystemInfo and updating the supposed performance index, the video increased from 2.6 to 3.0. Tested my WiFi, broadband and etc. All seems ok. Just more stable.

I disabled this file over a year ago with no adverse problems. Obvioulsly this program is not needed to run any moduals except maybe 'data mining'. System speed improved and my internet connections did as well. Also noticed less firewall activity blocking attempted outbound connections from diferent programs.

I've noticed the module as well... but it uses little CPU. I as well would like to find outit's use, and as anyone else would like to get the junk out of the trunk of this Vista. Doing research, to find out it's purpose. if any.

I received an fake norton antivirus message stating that my computer was in trouble...blah, blah, blah... My virus checker reported a trojan. reportedly had it contained. I decided t

In safe mode, your PC won't be able to use 3D programs so that's why it would be complaining about it on the screensaver.

Is this definitely showing "norton" as the virus scanner reporting the problem? Sometimes they have specific names that are massive giveaways when trying to find removal instructions for these fake AVs.

The best course of action when not knowing the exact malware that's been installed is to use MalwareBytes Anti-Malware, download this program onto the affected PC and let it do a full scan. It should resolve the issue for you.

The best way to download this is to use SAFE MODE WITH NETWORKING, not just regular safe mode.

There is a good guide, although fairly old, located here which will take you through the process.

Hello My travelmate 5720G don't work. I have nothing on the scream, The power button lights don't work. Can't you help me please ?

This problem of yours seems to be the motherboard. In this case, I would advice you to get a new laptop if yours is not under warranty anymore, because the motherboard causes really expensive. But just to make sure, try plugging it in the adaptor, just to make sure, but if no lights come out on the indicators then its a motherboard problem, but if you press the power button and lights come out of the indicator and fans are running, it maybe just a ram or video problem. In this case try reseating (taking out and putting back in) the ram or memory modules. When this doesn't work, avoid touching anything and go to your local computer shop and get a diagnosis, DO NOT ATTEMPT TO TOUCH ANYTHING ELSE FOR IT MAY CAUSE FURTHER DAMAGE.

My Dell Inspiron 1520 will not load anything past the first Dell screen. It loads Dell then goes black with a flashing cursor in the top corner, I have tried pressing F8 to do a system restore but it never...

Hello, Beth.

The most common reason is memory. Try reseating (remove and reinsert) the memory, first.

Power off the computer and disconnect all cables. Flip the laptop to the back. Remove the battery. The memory cover has 8 screws. Remove the memory modules at a 25 degree angle and reinsert them by pushing them down firmly by the ends.

If reseating the memory doesn't solve your problem, one module may be bad. So, remove and test each module one at a time.

Hope this helps.

My Compaq presario V3000 laptop is not restarting if I reboot immediately shut down. But I can restart it after several hours after shut down. Pls let me know what is wrong with it.

Do not re-install anything...

It is an overheating issue. The "paste" between the processor and the heat sink has deteriorated over time and the heat sink is separated from the cpu or not making a good heat conduction contact.

Although it is possible for you to do (take laptop apart), I suggest a repair shop.... but get an estimate and have it done while you wait... don't buy any other "services"..

Hope this helps!

Java(TM) Platform SE Binary has stopped working.

I had the same problems and found that the new driver i had upgraded to for my NVidia card was the culprit. I rolled it back and my problem was fixed. Hope this helps.

ECS A535 Video Memory

You can only change the amount of video memory if your model has a videocard memory that can be dynamically changed. You're correct that it can be done, but only on specific models of notebooks. :) If you're not able to find it on the BIOS then your model might not be one of them.
