General Computer Support / sfc results
« on: September 07, 2016, 06:25:01 PM »
I'm starting to have trouble with a couple of system operations , one of which is Windows Update.  I tried a few  fixes but no solves. I ran an sfc scan. I got results that said "errors found, some couldn't be resolved" (or something similar). Looking through the CBS log I found that wdscore.dll was corrupted and was not able to repaired. I think with something called syswow64. Then I read about some new exploit that screws with syswow64. I don't know where to go from here. None of my scanners picked up anything. So, I don't know if this virus is responsible or it's simply a system glitch.
Any comments or suggestions are appreciated.
Tnx,
Dusty

Tweaking.com Support & Help / Programs Crashing
« on: November 13, 2015, 11:50:42 AM »
Over the last week or so I've noticed IE11 crashing more and more. I've used Tweaking's All-in-One many times over the last several years always with great results. So today I turned to Tweaking.com again. Figured I've been a leach long enough so I purchased the pro version. I got the license key in the mail. Now when I go to apply the license the program crashes. The crash dialog appears and I have to "Close Program". I ran a full scan with Malearebytes and I'm getting ready to scan with Bitdefender. So far with no results. I tried safe mode but with the same results. I've run out of ideas. Any suggestions or comments? It seems like this crashing issue is growing exponentially. As always. comments or flames welcome.

General Computer Support / WiFi Speed >>> SOLVED <<<
« on: July 07, 2015, 07:18:57 PM »
Win 7 Pro x64. I was running cable on this machine. Recently moved into a condo until the house is ready in a couple of months. This place is setup for WiFi. Since the machine was setup for cable I had to adapt. After a couple of days research I settled on a Linksys AE2500 wireless N USB adapter. Ok, here's the spooky part. My iPad 3 clocks at speedtest.net at 15mbs down  & 1.5mbs up. My windows machine clocks in at 0.5 to 2.5mbs down & 1.0mbs up. Terrible. My browser times out before some pages fully load. Some times email client times out trying to fetch. I have no clue what to do. Any one with any ideas? As usual comments or flames welcome.
Tnx,

General Computer Support / Another Update Problem
« on: May 11, 2014, 10:59:01 AM »
Ok, this on is unique. Windows update is being picky. Some updates install just fine, others fail (most with code 80070490)  I used the new MS windows update repair tool, same problem. I asked on other forums and the consensus was I needed to do a repair install. Brought the machine to a local shop because I needed a larger SSD anyway. He says the repair install went fine. I believe him even if I don't trust him. Ran update with the same results. So, just for S & G I renewed my license with Reimage (not a cheap option BTW). Ran the whole Reimage Repair. Tried Windows Update again with same results with the same error code. Looking at update history I see several updates install just fine but a number don't. I am completely stumped. Any ideas?

General Computer Support / Broken DLL's
« on: August 03, 2013, 06:43:27 PM »
Yup, I broke it again, good news is I fixed all of it too. Well, except 1 thing. It appears Rundll32.exe got fubar'ed. Looked all over online and all I see is a bunch of sites saying that THEY have the best program to fix all my problems. Sorry, I just don't trust those kind of sites. Looking for information on how to fix/replace "rundll32.exe". Any comments or suggestions are welcome.

General Computer Support / Context Menu
« on: April 21, 2013, 06:39:58 PM »
I'm having a problem that I've never encountered before. When using a context menu, doesn't matter which or where I get a "ghost" of the item I clicked on. By ghost I mean the text on the menu entry I click on stays on the screen. The only way to get rid of it is to reboot, or it's the only way I've found so far. I'm getting ready to get this machine to the doctor for an in depth physical. Just thought I'd try here first. Any comments or suggestions are welcome.
Tnx,

Tweaking.com Support & Help / chkdsk scheduled
« on: February 04, 2013, 07:44:00 PM »
First I need to say the all-in-one program is great. Saved me alot of time doing repairs one by one, I love it. Now, chkdsk didn't run on reboot. I use "Diskeeper" from Condusiv to keep my drives sorted  and packed. My system drive is an SSD. Diskeeper can't do an analysys on my SSD because chdsk is scheduled to run on boot, but it dosen't. How can I un-cue chdsk? I haven't a clue.

While I have ya here, I'm battling something called "pup datamngr. Malewarebytes keeps removing it but it keeps replicating itself. I've been round and round with programs that are "guarenteed" to fix this but they don't. It slows boot times to to a painful crawl. Any ideas are welcome.
Tnx,
Dusty
