Call Best Buy. I'm not sure but I think Spyware/Antivirus software has to be renewed yearly.

    Your welcome. Maybe one day what we spend on these software's might actually include all the updates we need to keep them running. It's totally a monopoly and we have little choice.

Hello, i purchased a hp envy back in April 2010from best buy, same has microsoft office home and student installed. recently went to use this software and it asked for a product key. i could not find one....


When you purchase a PC it comes preloaded with what is called an OEM version. This version can nly be used on the machine for which its purcashed.

Now - Your issue is this - when you purchased that computer - it may have only came with a 60 day trial version. If that is the case then you will have to buy the full version from Best Buy or online at microsoftstore.com for $149.00 and yu can download a new copy or at least get a key for your copy.

The other option is to check your case and see if the Microsoft sticker list just the operating system or both the operating system and Microsoft Office Home and Stduent. If it list Home and Student - you can contact Microsoft at http://store.microsoft.com/Help/Contact-Us and tell them your licensed for teh product but did not get the disks from Best Buy and that you need your key - they will ask you for the code on the tag of your computer

Hope this helps!

I purchased a Dell Computer back in 2004 which came with Sonic Digital Media Plus v7. My PC has Windows XP Operating System. A few days ago I decided to install Version 6.0 of Roxios Easy CD/DVD Burning...


Try uninstalling Roxio and the Sonic drives and run Fixit. Then reboot and install Roxio first then the Sonic driver.
If this doesn't work uninstall again as previously, install Roxio and check the CD/DVD if necessary run Fixit then install Sonic driver.

I get runD1132 error every time I open up PC


RUNDLL32 is the Microsoft Windows program that loads DLLs into memory so
that they can be used by specific programs or by Windows. This behavior
could be associated with a programs not responding properly or is associated
with spyware programs and viruses. Anti-virus software and firewalls do not
fully protect your system against the majority of spyware and privacy
threats. Spyware is commonly bundled with software downloads, attached to
e-mails, or transmitted through networks so it can appear to be legitimate
software, but once installed it can be nearly impossible to detect and
remove without the help of a dedicated spyware removal tool such as:

Ad-Aware 6.0 (build 6.181)
http://www.lavasoftusa.com

SpyBot 1.3
http://www.safer-networking.org/

SpyWare Blaster
http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html/

HiJackThis
http://www.spychecker.com/program/hijackthis.html

Please make sure that you download the updates for each of these programs to
ensure complete detection of known spyware programs. Although nothing is
absolute in removing spyware and keeping it off, downloading and executing
the programs above can dramically decrease future infections.

Also please utilize free virus scans from the following sites:

Trend Micro
http://www.trend.com

Bit Defender
http://www.bitdefender.com

Panda
http://www.pandasoftware.com/

McAfee
http://www.vil.nai.com/vil/stinger

After Spyware / Adware is remove, you may get an error finding files on
reboot

After you use anyone of these programs (with the exception of HiJackThis)
you may receive an error of some sort after rebooting your system. This is
pretty common. Many spyware programs add themselves in the Startup location
and execute when Windows boots. If you recieve an error when rebooting after
removing spyware, do not panic. This is more than likely a startup remnant
trying to access the spyware program that is no longer on your computer.
HiJackThis is a great utility to find and remove these startup remnants.
However, there is a less technical way of removing these items:

(1) Click START to RUN and type: msconfig
(2) Select the STARTUP tab
(3) Uncheck the file that pertained to the startup error message you
received
(4) Click APPLY and OK
(5) Reboot your system

If this fails to fix the startup error message after reboot, there are still
options:

(1) Navigate to C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start
Menu\Programs\Startup
(2) Delete the icon that pertained to the startup error message you received
(3) Navigate to C:\Documents and Settings\username\Start
Menu\Programs\Startup
(4) Delete the icon that pertained to the startup error message you received
(5) Reboot your system

Operates fine, than all of a sudden, the printer disappears.


That sounds a lot like the driver software is unsuccessful in installing or you have something like anti-virus or anti-spyware that is stopping the installation from completing all it's stages successfully.

Try downloading the latest version of the software then disconnecting from the internet before temporarily disabling your anti-virus and anti-spyware software and THEN installing the driver again.

As a general rule it's better to have the printer unplugged from the computer while you do this and then plug in when prompted...

The computer will want to reboot and finish the install so do this when prompted and make a note of any errors you receive if you get any.

Hope this helps.
