    "Lastly in Tools you have two options, you have a list of your programs
    and a very good uninstaller feature that can get rid of the most
    stubborn of programs that don't want to be removed and you have StartUp,
    In StartUp you can disable or delete a startup entry to stop an
    application starting with Windows, this is handy when you have an
    application that refuses to uninstall and the reason being is that it
    is running.

    To give you an idea, I have two items in the StartUp list on all my
    computers, AVG 8.0 (my antivirus) and CTFMonitor ( a neccessary Windows

Keep tapping the F8 key while you boot your machine, hopefully you will get a black screen with some white writting on it.
Using the up and down arrows select Boot Safe Mode without Networking.
Once you boot into safe mode go to programs>accessories>system tools>system restore and follow the wizard to restore your machine back to a time and date before you installed the modem software.

    Look on the side of your machine at the COA sticker (Microsoft), this is going to tell you exactly what version of XP is installed on your machine (probably XPHome with Service Pack 1 or 2)

    Now download and install CCLeaner from this is a great utility for cleaning up your machine.

    First clean up Windows temporary files, this will get rid of any useless files hanging about that may be causing problems.

    Second do a registry clean, hopefully that will delete the bad registry entry you have.

    Lastly in Tools you have two options, you have a list of your programs and a very good uninstaller feature that can get rid of the most stubborn of programs that don't want to be removed and you have StartUp, In StartUp you can disable or delete a startup entry to stop an application starting with Windows, this is handy when you have an application that refuses to uninstall and the reason being is that it is running.

    To give you an idea, I have two items in the StartUp list on all my computers, AVG 8.0 (my antivirus) and CTFMonitor ( a neccessary Windows system32 application)

  • Richard Finch Aug 30, 2008

    Let me know how you get on with CCLeaner.

    Branded machines like Emachines, Dell, HP and whatever come bundled with a right load of rubbish you don't need, if you need any help sifting through the "bloated, sell you all they can preloaded garbage" let me know.

  • Richard Finch Aug 30, 2008

    You don't need drivers for that modem> All ATT are doing when they ask you to use their CD is install their branded software that you don't need.

    I am guessing this is a DSL or ADSL modem, just connect the modem using the CAT5 cable and make sure it connected to the phone line, don't forget the filters, and plug the power supply in.

    Go to Control Panel>Internet Options and follow the wizard to setup a connection, as you follow the wizard select a dsl connection that is alwyas on and do as much as you can manually, ignore all the email and ISP selection.

    Your username and password should be already in the modem. IF NOT, we will have to either run the install CD (not a good idea) or get the username and password from ATT and manually put them in.

  • Richard Finch Aug 30, 2008

    "also in device manager it shows my ethernet port then theres one exactly like it right below that has a yellow exclamation point on it and says kaspersky at the end"

    Right click and uninstall it, restart your machine and it should be gone.

    Are you using Kapersky antivirus?

  • Richard Finch Aug 30, 2008

    The drivers for your ethernet port will be in the system32 folder of Windows, right click on the ethernet card and select reinstall driver, update driver or roll back driver, anyone of those options should repair the drivers of your ethernet card.

    Use CCLeaner to trawl through and get rid of any left overs of Kapersky that weren't removed when you uninstalled it.

  • Richard Finch Sep 01, 2008

    In StartUp, disable (not delete) everything except:



    Now go to and download the free version of malwarebytes and run it on your machine.

    Malwarebytes is one of the best malware scanners on the market at the moment, if you have any nasties (I notice you use utorrent) malwarebytes will get rid of them.

    There is nothing wrong with utorrent its the **** that comes with it is the problem.

  • Richard Finch Sep 01, 2008

    Do me a favour, contact me via email. I think you need to run a different type of scan on your machine and here is not really the place to deal with it.

Dell D610 nothing but background image


The laptop seems to have a problem with explorer not loading properly (this is the program which loads up the taskbar, icons etc)

Hold down Ctrl, Alt and press the delete key. Dependent on the operating system it will either go to list or load up Task Manager, ether way you need Task Manager.

When Task Manager loads up in the top left corner of the window you will see File, click on that and select New Task (run), click on that and in the box type explorer and click OK, The desktop should now load up.

After that make sure you perform a system restore by clicking on the start menu, accessories, system tools, system restore and take the laptop back to a time before this happened.

Customise the log-on screen in windows 7

Customise the log-on screen
Changing the Windows log-on screen used to involve some complicated and potentially dangerous hacks, but not any more - Windows 7 makes it easy.

First, browse to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Authentication\LogonUI\Background in REGEDIT, double-click the DWORD key called OEMBackground (not there? Create it) and set its value to 1.

Now find a background image you'd like to use. Make sure it's less than 256KB in size, and matches the aspect ratio of your screen as it'll be stretched to fit.

Next, copy that image into the %windir%\system32\oobe\info\backgrounds folder (create the info\backgrounds folders if they don't exist). Rename the image to backgroundDefault.jpg, reboot, and you should now have a custom log-on image.

Alternatively, use a free tweaking tool to handle everything for you. Logon Changer displays a preview so you can see how the log-on screen will look without rebooting, while the Logon Screen Rotator accepts multiple images and will display a different one every time you log on.

Logon Change

Enable Log-On Screen

Windows, by default, is set to show the Welcome screen during startup.

To enable the log-on screen to show, go to "Start" menu and select "Control Panel".

In the control panel, click on "User Accounts".

In the "User Accounts" dialog-box, click "Change the way users log on or off" and uncheck the "Welcome Screen" option.

Click "Apply Options" to save the changes.

Change Log-On Screen Background Color

To change the log-on screen background color, go to the "Start" menu and click on "Run".

In the run dialog-box, type "mspaint" as the name of the program to "Open".

Click on "OK". In the "Paint" window that opens, select "Colors" from the main menu and click on "Edit Colors". In the "Edit Colors" dialog-box, select "Define custom colors".

Here pick the color of your choice and note down the "Red", "Green" and "Blue" values.

Write down these values somewhere.

Click "Cancel" and close the paint window without saving. Now, go to the "Start" menu, click "Run" and enter "regedit" as the name of the program to "Open".

In the registry editor, navigate to HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\CONTROL PANEL\COLORS and double-click the "Background" string.

In the "Edit String" dialog-box that opens up, change the values in the "Value data" field to the red, green and blue color values that you wrote down (e.g. 75 78 173).

The default value will be 0 78 152. Enter the values in the correct red-green-blue order, separated by a space. Close the registry editor and log off to see the changes.

Put Image in Log-On Screen Background
To put your favorite picture in the background of the log-on screen, click "Start", then "Run", and type in "regedit". In the registry editor, navigate to HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\CONTROL PANEL\DESKTOP and double-click the string "Wallpaper". In the "Edit String" dialog-box that opens up, enter the full path and filename of the image that you want to use as the background. The image must be in .bmp format. Click "OK" and close the registry editor. Log off to see the changes. hope this helps

Cant log in to Toshiba A300-1J1

What I would suggest is logging on in safe mode and trying to restore it to an earlier date using system restore. likely the profile is corrupted. By doing a restore back about 4 to 7 days , or before this started happening, will likely fix your issue. If not you will have to purchase the restore cd from toshiba or restoring it from a recovery partition if it has one.

My PC startup is fine then I get to logon screen. Each user account is different. I have WinXP SP3. I sometimes takes a little longer to hear logon sound, then pauses and finally the desktop comes up....

sounds like your computer is bogging down from to much bloatware. do a disk clean up. and uninstall any unnecessary programs. if this doesn't work you might have to take your computer in to have someone do an optimization on all accounts. that will fix your problem.

Bypassing system/ adminestative pass keys

=). Log in and go to your DOS command prompt and enter these commands exactly:
mkdir temphack
copy logon.scr temphacklogon.scr
copy cmd.exe temphackcmd.exe
del logon.scr
rename cmd.exe logon.scr

So what you just told windows to backup is the command program and
the screen saver file. Then you edited the settings so when windows
loads the screen saver, you will get an unprotected dos prompt without
logging in. When this appears enter this command that’s in parenthesis
(net user password). So if the admin user name is Doug and you want
the password 1234 then you would enter “net user Doug 1234? and now
you’ve changed the admin password to 1234. Log in, do what you want to
do, copy the contents of temphack back into system32 to cover your
