Having problems with your computer’s audio device? Check to make sure your able to hook up head phones or another set of speakers to your computer first. It is possible that you are having an issue with your sound card driver, if your not able to hear any sound when hooking up different headphones or speakers.
If it is indeed a problem with the computer sound driver you can go to “Start” then “Control Panel” in Microsoft Windows operating system. Go into “Device Manager” and see if there is a yellow exclamation point next to your audio device. If the yellow exclamation point exists you can right click the audio device and select delete.
There is a refresh icon in the Microsoft Windows device manager that you can click after deleting the audio device. Device Manager will find the audio device again and try to install the drivers for it again. If windows update is enabled it will try to download the drivers from the internet other wise you will be prompted for your installation media. For example, your original sound card CD-ROM or Microsoft Windows CD-ROM.
I want to warn you that if you permanently delete your sound card driver and you do NOT have the driver CD-ROM when you purchased it, then you could have potentially caused yourself further time. I would make certain whether or not you still possess this driver CD-ROM. If you are dealing with an integrated sound device then you may or may not have received a drivers CD-ROM from the original equipment manufacturer.
If you do NOT possess a audio device sound driver CD-ROM then you can search for it on the Internet. Microsoft does NOT always provide a sound card or audio device driver. You may have to look for the sound driver on the manufacturer’s website.
Also, you can often times search for sound drivers from computer manufacturers. For example Dell, Lenovo, Hewlett Packard, etc. Newer Microsoft Windows operating systems give you basically two choices when it comes to removing the sound driver.
You will be given the choice to uninstall the driver and then there maybe a check box labeled “Delete the driver software for this device”. If you know that you do NOT possess this audio driver, then I would not delete the driver. This will leave you with an audio device or sound card that lacks a driver.
This means that you will NOT be able to get it functional without the driver. However, deleting the driver from your computer can be advantageous in situations where that audio driver has become corrupt. Another way to potentially provide a sound fix, is to update your audio driver.
Microsoft operating systems will attempt to search for an update to your sound driver. This may just fix your problem. Also, you can just uninstall your sound device from device manager.
Then you can restart your computer. Microsoft Windows operating system will then detect your sound device again and install the audio driver that is still located on your computer’s hard drive. I always warn people about permanently deleting a driver from Microsoft Windows operating systems.
Cannot get the Mass Effect video game to play on Microsoft Windows 7 operating system? You can download and install the most current patch for this Mass Effect video game. If that does not resolve your issue you can try upgrading your video card driver by going into your Microsoft Windows 7 operating system control panel.
In device manager find and highlight your video display adapter or graphics adapter and then double click it or right click it and select “Properties”. In the properties there should be an upgrade driver button. If you are using Microsoft windows updates then the most current driver should then download via Microsoft windows updates.
Another option would be to try changing the Mass Effect video game desktop shortcut to “Run as administrator”. You right click that Mass Effect video game desktop shortcut and then select “Properties” from that menu. Browse to the “Compatibility” tab in properties and then check the “Run this program as an administrator” box.
Click on “OK” and then try to run that video game software program again. If all else fails you can try to remove this Mass Effect video game and then install again. I recommend you use a PC optimization tool to clean up your computer first before you attempt to install this video game software again.
Sometimes on Microsoft Windows operating systems, junk files and registry entries accumulate to the point you notice computer problems similar to a software program not working correctly. You can run both cleaner and registry scans. The cleaning of your computer will remove junk files.
The registry scan will look for and remove unnecessary registry entries. Once this task is performed then you can install Mass Effect video game software like normal. Hopefully, you are now able to play this video game.
If you are still having problems getting this Mass Effect video game software to work successfully, you can run two Microsoft Windows system scans. The first one is called a system file check. You want to type this command into a command prompt with administrator rights:
I recommend running this scan three times. The second Microsoft Windows system scan you can perform is what is known as a check disk scan. You want to type the following command into a command prompt with administrator rights:
chkdsk c: /f /r
You want to type Y for yes when you are notified that the volume is in use. This will schedule a check disk scan for the next Microsoft Windows restart. You want to restart your computer.
Do NOT touch the keyboard. A check disk scan should begin with 10 seconds. This scan cant potentially take hours to run.
If this scan does NOT begin, then schedule that scan again with the instructions I already provided to you. Hopefully, you can finally begin playing Mass Effect video game on Microsoft Windows 7. Speaking of Microsoft Windows 7 operating system.
These instructions were written for a computer with Microsoft Windows 7 operating system installed. However, you can use these troubleshooting steps as a basis point for other Microsoft Windows operating systems.
What to do if your Microsoft windows computer crashes unexpectedly? Some users receive the following error message:
“The file or directory C:\$Secure is corrupt and unreadable. Please run chkdsk utility”
You can boot your Microsoft Windows computer into safe mode by pressing the F8 key right after your computer BIOS screen flashes and before Microsoft windows attempt to boot and select “Safe Mode” from that advanced boot options menu. In Microsoft Windows Safe Mode click on “Start” then select “Run” and type CMD in the run box and then click “Ok”. In that black command prompt window type this command:
chkdsk c: /f /r
That check disk scan may take a while to run but hopefully it will fix any bad sectors. Another option is to boot your computer in safe mode again and this time run
chkntfs /x c:
in a command prompt. Finally, you can boot off your Microsoft Windows installation CD-ROM and hit the R key to get into the Recovery Console. Once in Recovery Console type this command:
chkdsk c: /p /r
If that does NOT fix your problem then you can try a repair installation of Microsoft Windows operating system. Another option would be to boot into safe mode and this time select “Last Known Good Configuration”. You do NOT have to use your Microsoft Windows media to boot with last known good configuration.
If you hit the F8 key after you see your BIOS screen flashes and right before Microsoft windows operating system tries to boot you will see the advanced boot options menu. Please select “Last Known Good Configuration” from that menu. Hopefully the computer will boot normally.
It is worth trying last known good configuration, because I have seen it fix issues like this before. Yes it is possible that your hard drive is failing. This is unfortunate however it is worth trying to repair your installation of Microsoft Windows operating system.
Two additional repair solutions are specifically geared towards Microsoft Windows Vista operating system. One option is if the hard drive is still good would be to run Microsoft Windows Vista’s “System File Checker” in safe mode. You can follow those instructions below.
Basically, in a command prompt after booting into safe mode you type the following command:
System file check will check for any corrupt system files and attempt to repair or replace them. A second option would be to run an upgrade or repair installation of Vista. You should NOT loose any of your data but some Microsoft Windows Vista settings might be reset.
You can follow some instructions for a Microsoft Windows Vista repair installation below.
Performing a repair installation requires that you physically have a Microsoft Windows Vista CD-ROM disc. Basically, you will be performing a Microsoft Windows installation. However, you do NOT want to delete any data.
Therefore you are performing what is known as a repair installation. This is an advanced technique and many end users do NOT know that this type of Microsoft Windows operating system repair installation is even available. You need to proceed with caution and do NOT format your hard drive.
Many of these instructions were written for Microsoft Windows Vista operating system. However, they can be used as a basis point certainly for other Microsoft Windows operating systems.
When trying to play Hunting Unlimited 2009, you may get Prism 3d engine problem pop up error message and then you are unable to play that game. You can try updating your Microsoft Directx software to the most current version. You can type in this command into a run box to find out what version of Directx you have installed.
To start the Microsoft Directx installation immediately, click on “Open” or “Run” this program from its current location. Also, you can download Microsoft Directx to your computer by choosing “Save”. Double click this download to begin the installation process.
Microsoft Directx is a tool that allows you to participate in multimedia and game play. Another possible solution is to update your version of Oracle Java to the latest version. You can download and install the latest Java version from the link below.
Finally, you can try updating your video card drivers. Right click “My Computer” select “Properties” then select the “Hardware” tab. Then click on “Device Manager” and expand “Display Adapters”.
Right click on your display adapter(s) and choose “Update Driver”. Now choose “Yes this time only” or “Yes now and every time I connect a device” in the Hardware Update Wizard. If that does NOT fix your issue you can find the name of your graphics card and try to find the newest driver for it.
Obviously if any of these components are failing then you would need to repair them. You can always download Microsoft Directx and or Oracle Java from the previous links provided. Then you would remove Microsoft Directx and or Oracle Java from your Microsoft Windows computer.
Before reinstalling Microsoft Directx or Oracle Java, you may want to use my preferred PC Optimization tool. This program will remove junk files and registry entries that are no longer needed. You can run both cleaner and registry scans with this PC optimization tool.
Now you would then install Microsoft Directx and or Oracle Java. Here are the requirements for playing Hunting Unlimited 2009:
* Microsoft Windows XP or Microsoft Windows Vista operating system
* Pentium 4 1.4 Gigahertz or faster compatible processor
* 256 megabytes of random access memory
* Direct X 9.0 or newer which is included on the CD-ROM
* 1 Gigabytes of hard disk space
* CD-ROM optical drive
* 64 Megabytes Direct X 9 compatible graphics card
* Direct X 9 compatible sound card
* Mouse and Keyboard
Microsoft Directx 9.0 C is compatible with Microsoft Windows XP service pack 2, Microsoft Windows XP service pack 3, Microsoft Windows Vista, and Microsoft Windows 7 operating systems. These instructions were written for Microsoft Windows Vista operating system. However, they can be used as a basis point for other Microsoft operating systems.
Are you unable to open PDF portable document format files in Adobe Acrobat reader all of the sudden? You may receive the “Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library Runtime Error! Program: C:\Program Files (x86) AdobeReader This application has requested the Runtime to terminate in an unusual way. Please contact the application’s support team for more information.” error message when attempting to open Adobe Acrobat PDF portable document format files. If removing and reinstalling the Adobe Acrobat reader program does not solve your problem, then the following solutions just may work.
If you do attempt to remove and reinstall Adobe Acrobat reader program then perhaps using a personal computer optimization tool may help solve your problem. Sometimes cleaning up junk files and removing unnecessary Microsoft Windows registry entries can fix problems like an application that refuses to open. You may want to run cleaner and registry scans with my preferred PC optimization tool.
One of the easiest solutions is to go into the properties of the Adobe Acrobat reader program AcroRd32.exe executable by right clicking on the AcroRd32.exe executable and then selecting “Run this program in compatibility mode for: Windows XP (Service Pack 2)”. You may also have to perform this on the Adobe Acrobat reader program Acrobat.exe executable as well.
Another possible solution, if the previous one does not work is to try right clicking the executable(s) again only this time select “Run as Administrator”. Then proceed with the first set of instructions. You want to run Adobe Acrobat reader program AcroRd32.exe and Acrobat.exe executable with administrator credentials.
Finally, editing the following Microsoft Windows registry key will hopefully fix your error. To accomplish this you click the Microsoft Windows “Start” menu button and then select “Run”. Type in “Regedit” then click on “OK”.
Once in the Microsoft Windows registry editor, navigate to the following location:
On the right hand side of the Microsoft Windows registry editor highlight “AppData”. Double click “AppData” to edit this file path. Change the file path from %USERPROFILE%Application Data to %USERPROFILE%AppData.
Make certain that you are familiar with the Microsoft Windows registry, before making any changes. You can always back up the Microsoft Windows registry before making any changes. You want to open up Microsoft Windows registry, so that you can facilitate these changes.
Then select the key or sub key that you want to back up. Now click on “File”. Then select “Export”.
Now type the name of your backup file. Then you select a location that you want to save this backup file. Finally, click on “Save”.
You have successfully backed up this registry key or sub key. Now you can make your changes via the instructions above. If you fuck anything up you can restore this back by clicking on “File.
Now choose “Import” this time. Then browse to the file you just created. This file will have a .reg file name extension.
You want to select this file. Finally, click on “Open”. As a computer repair technician I never mess around in the Microsoft Windows registry unless absolutely necessary.
Hopefully, you have fixed your problem where by Adobe Acrobat reader program would not open. These instructions were written for a computer with Microsoft Windows XP operating system installed. However, they can certainly be used as a basis point for other Microsoft Windows operating systems.
Pdf Problem – Can’t open .pdf files in Adobe Acrobat Reader Video Transcript
hello this is Aaron with a net computers
dot-com with another potential fix for
an issue you might be having this one is
more specifically succinctly for Adobe
PDF PDF problem can’t open PDF files in
Adobe Acrobat Reader unable to open PDF
files on Adobe Acrobat Reader all of the
sudden you may receive the quote
microsoft visual c++ runtime library
runtime error program c program files
x86 adobe reader this application is
requested the runtime to terminate in an
unusual way please contact the
application support team for more
information unquote error message when
attempting to open adobe acrobat PDF
files if removing and reinstalling the
program does not solve the problem then
the following solutions may work yes a
quick solution to that is to uninstall
and then reinstall adobe PDF or you
could try repair you go into control
panel add remove programs on windows
machines computers running Microsoft
Windows then run a repair utility on
Adobe PDF that might clear up that error
if not try to uninstall Adobe PDF Reader
Acrobat Reader then reinstall it
hopefully you no longer receive that
error when trying to open up PDF files
if those two quick solutions don’t work
then you can continue on with these
instructions and then in the description
of this YouTube video I will put the web
link to this blog post where it has more
specific instructions for you so step
one would be one of the easiest
solutions is to go into the properties
of the acro Rd 32x II executable by
right-clicking on the acro Rd 32x II
executable and then selecting quote run
this program in compatibility mode for
Windows XP service pack 2 unquote you
may also have to do this on the
Exe executable as well you would want to
go into c program files and then adobe
acrobat folder could be x86 or you could
do a quick search search for those exact
filenames acro ACR ORD 32 dot e XE as
well as acrobat AC ro OB 8 edx e and
then right click those and then follow
those instructions to run those programs
and compatibility mode and you would
select windows xp service pack 2 part 2
or number 2 another solution if the
previous one doesn’t work is to try to
right-clicking the executables again
only this time select run as
administrator then proceed with the
first set of instructions so yes it may
not work just by setting them in
compatibility mode on Windows 8 Windows
7 etc what you do is just downgrade if
your Acrobat doesn’t work and it reader
doesn’t work on Windows 7 you just
change compatibility mode and choose the
most previous version you could even
select Windows Vista or Windows XP
service pack 3 or Windows XP service
pack 2 until the program finally works
correctly that might be a quicker
solution for you it might be important
it might be an emergency you might
really need to access those PDF files
you do not have another computer you’re
on a deadline you could follow step 1
and then BAM it works or you might have
to follow step 2 which is in the same
menu you right click those executables
and then you set under properties you
set run as administrator then you set
the compatibility mode step number 3 or
possible tip number 3 finally editing
the following registry key will
hopefully fix your error to accomplish
this you go to start select run type in
regedit click on OK once in the registry
editor navigate to the following
location hecu for
bird slash software for slash Microsoft
forward slash windows forward slash
current version forward slash Explorer
forward slash user shell folders and
then once you get to that key on the
right hand side of the registry editor
highlight app data double click app data
to edit its path change the path from %
user profile % application data to %
user profile % app data so your as you
can see you’re just Reis pelling that
word you’re taking out application and
application and then replacing it with
app instead then also h k CU software
microsoft windows currentversion
Explorer user shell folders AppData key
value from % user profile % application
data to % user profile % app data so you
shorten it so hopefully if you’re not
familiar with how to or editing your
Windows registry I highly recommend you
back it up first just in case and then
also with the registry editor it’s
verbatim so you really want to make sure
that you change the registry key to
exactly the way it’s stipulated here or
if you’re not familiar with editing the
windows registry I recommend going out
on Google and finding some tutorials
there’s no doubt there’s blog posts and
articles and other YouTube videos that
will specifically just show you how to
edit the registry successfully and
without causing further problems because
what can happen is you might set a
registry entry incorrect because it’s
it’s it’s case sensitive and you have to
you know the spelling is important it
might make that program no longer usable
or you might end up
changing settings you might have the
wrong registry key and you change up
settings and you can you know start
meddling with programs that you do not
want to so anyways hopefully these tips
fix your possible problem where you are
no longer able to open PDF files and
Adobe Acrobat Reader if these tips don’t
work then I would recommend you just
uninstall Adobe Acrobat Reader and then
look for a file cleaning program like CC
cleaner which I talked about on my
previous video you would run a registry
session regi not the registry clean out
your temporary files and folders then go
in back and reinstall Adobe Acrobat
Reader and then it might work like it
did before anyways you can always browse
any computers com for more possible
potential fixes to your most common
computer problems thank you for
How to transfer files between two or more computers with Microsoft Windows operating systems you ask? Some computer users like to transfer files between two Microsoft Windows computers using “Files and Settings Transfer Wizard”. This often requires using a direct cable connection between the two computers with a serial cable.
Both computers must have a serial port and transfer times can be slow, especially when transferring larger amounts of data. Another option with quicker data transfer rates is using the universal serial bus ports on the computers and with the help of a special transfer cable. This might not be as straight forward as you think as you might have to use Microsoft Window’s easy transfer tool, which has since been deprecated and is NOT available in Microsoft Windows 10 operating system.
Other options would be to transfer your data via a universal serial bus flash drive, external universal serial bus hard drive, or setting up a simple home network with your source and destination computer(s) plugged into a hub, router, or switch. Looking into what hardware or software is needed before attempting to transfer your data is highly recommended. This could come with additional obstacles such as trying to transfer data from a desktop computer to a laptop computer.
If you have time, I think it would be more productive if you plan this project ahead of time. There are many factors to take into consideration. To me as a computer technician, using a small local network is the easiest and least time consuming actually.
However, now that Microsoft likes to create changing operating systems, this can at first seem daunting. If you are in a quick bind, then using a file transfer cable or other type of storage device might save you time. In cases of an emergency where your computer is having problems then a file transfer cable might be advantageous.
If you are facing an emergency like a failing hard drive, then mucking around with a file transfer cable might put your data at risk. This is the type of situation where a universal serial bus flash drive or external hard drive could be the quickest and safest option. If you are not facing a quagmire, then I would choose the home network route, pun intended, each and every time.
A small Microsoft Windows domain network is suitable for around twenty five to thirty computers. All you have to do is place them all on the same work group. You can use Microsoft’s default “WORKGROUP” name or choose your own.
For example you could name your work group “apple”. You would just change the work group to “apple” on each Microsoft Windows computer from the default “workgroup”. Now you just need to make sure that each computer receives an internet protocol address on the same sub net.
For example you have five computers with the following Internet protocol addresses:
Now they can all talk to each other on the same small network. You can designate one of them as a file server, if you choose. This next step requires more technical knowledge. Depending on what operating system you are using, you need to make certain that “File and Printer Sharing” is enabled.
I would advise against using the newer Microsoft Windows “HomeGroup” networking feature. My experiences with this newer way to create a home network have been nothing short of a disaster. I have setup successfully small Microsoft Windows networks with just file and printer sharing enabled.
I have had a network where I had Microsoft Windows 2000, Microsoft Windows XP, Microsoft Windows Vista, Microsoft Windows 7, and Microsoft Windows computers all networked and able to access files. I made the changes to each computer outlined earlier in this blog post and made certain that file and printer sharing were enabled. I could view every computer on this small network.
Finally, you may want to take security into consideration. You may not want read and write abilities on each and every computer. This is where a small file server to me becomes advantageous.
Even two computers with one dedicated to storing files to me is productive. You want to just share the hard drive or just one folder on your file server. Then you can allow read only access or write access to just this one file folder or hard drive.
The other remaining computers on your network would then have access to this file share. Also, you can share printers in this same manner. As a matter of fact I have a Dymo Label Writer 450 networked in this manner.
Another advantage to creating a home network is that you can even remotely connect to each computer using Microsoft Windows remote desktop connection software. You can even copy files over this remote desktop connection. Now that you have your own network configured you can possibly spend less time worrying about your personal files.
Apple QuickTime updates may cause Apple iTunes software program to fail. You may receive the “Need to repair or reinstall QuickTime” message after installing Apple QuickTime update(s). Sometimes a complete removal and re installation is necessary to clear these software program errors and problems.
You may need to clean up your computer’s registry entries for Apple quick time and Apple iTunes, so that when reinstalling both programs you start out with a clean Microsoft Windows registry. Be sure to backup your Microsoft Windows registry with my preferred PC optimization tool that I am recommending you download and install. This PC optimization tool has been quite reliable in all the years I have used it.
You want to download and install this PC optimization tool. From within this program run a registry cleaner utility. Please backup your Microsoft Windows registry when prompted.
This should clean out any Microsoft Windows registry settings that is not being removed for Apple quick time and Apple iTunes. In this PC optimization tool, click the “Registry” button on the left hand side. On the left hand side you can select the items under “Registry Cleaner “that you want to scan.
All of them are checked by default. It is recommended that you leave all the items checked. Click the “Scan for Issues” button.
You will see a progress indicator bar and a list of potential problems. Once this Microsoft Windows registry scan is completed, you can then review the list of problems. You can save this list to a text file, by right clicking anywhere inside this list.
Now click on “Save to text file”. If you want this PC Optimization tool to skip any of these problems it has found, then right click the problem, and then click “Add to Exclude List” button.
You can review all of the current group of excluded files, folders, and Microsoft Windows registry entries in this “Exclude” area of the “Options” pane. Now you want to click “Fix selected issues” to fix these Microsoft windows registry problems. You will now be prompted to backup the Microsoft Windows registry first.
It is highly recommended that you click on “Yes”. Choose a location where to save this Microsoft Windows registry backup file. Click on “Save” to complete this process.
This PC optimization tool displays the very first Microsoft Windows registry problem with a possible solution. You can speed up this process by clicking on “Fix All Selected Issues”. After running that Microsoft Windows registry cleaner then you can reinstall Apple QuickTime and Apple iTunes.
Hopefully it will resolve your issue. This Microsoft Windows registry PC optimization tool also has a “Cleaner” tool. This will remove any Internet cache, Internet history, cookies, download history, temporary Internet files, temporary files, and thumbnail cache. This is an added bonus tip.
If you allow your Microsoft Windows computer to accumulate all of the a fore mentioned files, then this can cause potential problems with your computer. Click the “Cleaner” button on the left hand side. Click the “Run Cleaner” button.
Depending on how many of these files have accumulated on your Microsoft Windows operating system, this tool can take a few seconds to a few minutes to run this scan. This program will tell you how much disk space in megabytes of junk files have been removed. I encourage you to keep running this “Cleaner” scan until nothing to very little junk files are found.
This PC optimization tool is my preferred system cleanup tool of choice and I actually use this program as routine maintenance on the few computers that have Microsoft Windows operating system installed.
Is Adobe Premiere software program giving you a problem? Some users report receiving the “System error occurred while trying to rename the captured clip” error message after completing a video capture and when prompted to save and name the file. The video clip then gets stored in the input folder as a temporary clip.
To clear this error message, you can delete your temporary files in C:\Windows\Temp and any temp files located in the Adobe Premiere programs folder. If this does not fix the problem then you can try reinstalling Adobe Premiere 6.5 by removing it via “Add/Remove Programs” in “Control Panel” then reinstalling it from your paid installation media. You can also try manually removing Adobe Premiere software via the tutorial at the following Adobe article in case after removing it via Control Panel and then reinstalling it, the problem is not corrected.
Following these steps removes the Adobe Premiere application from your computer. This will also remove the license from your computer.
Do not try to remove Adobe Premiere or Adobe Elements by just dragging folders to the Recycle Bin in Microsoft Windows operating system or Trash on Apple Macintosh operating system. This can cause problems when attempting to reinstall this software.
Make certain that you have administrative privileges for the account you are using. Disable any malware, spyware, virus, and firewall programs. Browse to the Control Panel in Microsoft Windows 7, 8, or 10 operating systems.
Once in Control Panel you want to select the program you are removing. For example Adobe Premiere or Adobe Elements. Click on this software to select it. Then you should see an “Uninstall” option.
Select Uninstall to begin removing this software. This is a very important next step. If you want to save your program preferences than make sure that Remove Preferences is NOT selected.
Follow the rest of the onscreen instructions to remove this application. If you receive any error messages or the Adobe Premiere or Adobe Elements software is still listed as installed, then reinstall that software and then attempt to remove it again. For whatever reason this allows you to finally remove this stubborn program.
The following installation instructions pertain to the Apple Macintosh operating system. First you want to open Finder and then browse to “Applications”. Now you want to choose “Utilities”.
Next you want to select “Adobe Installers”. Begin the Uninstaller for Adobe Photoshop Elements or Adobe Premiere Elements. If you want to keep your program preferences make certain that “Remove Preferences” is NOT selected.
If selected you will lose all your Adobe Premiere or Adobe Elements personal preferences. Select “Uninstall” and follow the on screen instructions to remove this software program. If you receive any error messages or this application is still listed as installed, then you can reinstall Adobe Premiere or Adobe Elements and then try to remove this program.
If you do NOT see Adobe Premiere or Adobe Elements after installing the Adobe Application Manager then try to install that software program again and see if it is now indeed listed. Now that Adobe Premiere or Adobe Elements is listed you can proceed to removing this stubborn software. These instructions were written for both Microsoft Windows operating systems and Apple Macintosh operating systems.
Is your PC or Laptop running strange? Adware or advertising supported software is any software package which automatically plays, displays, or downloads advertisements to a computer after the software is installed on it or while the application is being used. Some types of adware are also spyware and can be classified as privacy invasive software.
Malware, short for malicious software, is software designed to infiltrate or damage a computer system without the owner’s informed consent. The expression is a general term used by computer professionals to mean a variety of forms of hostile, intrusive, or annoying software or program code. The term “computer virus” is sometimes used as a catch all phrase to include all types of malware, including true viruses.
Spyware is a type of malware that is installed on computers and collects information about users without their knowledge. The presence of spyware is typically hidden from the user. Typically, spyware is secretly installed on the user’s personal computer. Sometimes, however, spyware such as keyloggers are installed by the owner of a shared, corporate, or public computer on purpose in order to secretly monitor other users.
A computer virus is a computer program that can copy itself and infect a computer. The term “virus” is also commonly but erroneously used to refer to other types of malware, adware, and spyware programs that do not have the reproductive ability. A true virus can only spread from one computer to another (in some form of executable code) when its host is taken to that target computer; for instance because a user sent it over a network or the Internet, or carried it on a removable medium such as a floppy disk, CD, DVD, or USB drive. Viruses can increase their chances of spreading to other computers by infecting files on a network file system or a file system that is accessed by another computer.

Are you receiving Microsoft Outlook Error 0x80042108? When trying to access your Microsoft Outlook email account you may receive this “error 0x80042108. Microsoft Outlook is unable to connect to your POP3 server”.
If you receive this error it may be occurring for the following reasons:
* You are not connected to the Internet, a network, or your Microsoft e-mail server is temporarily unavailable
* Your Microsoft Outlook account settings are not correc
* Your user profile in Microsoft Outlook is damaged
* An e-mail item on your Microsoft POP3 server is damaged
* The configuration of your anti virus software is incorrect
* Microsoft Outlook Express was removed from your computer or the installation is damaged
* The configuration of your personal firewall software is incorrect
You can try to narrow down and fix this error by:
* Making sure your network connection has not dropped
* Double checking to make certain that your Microsoft Outlook email account settings are correct
* Recreating your Microsoft Outlook email profile in case it is damaged
* Logging into your Microsoft Outlook email account through web based interface and looking for damaged emails
* Checking to see if your anti virus software is blocking email access
* Looking to see if Microsoft Outlook Express was removed or possibly corrupted
* Checking your firewall settings, making sure your firewall is not blocking Microsoft Outlook email access
Simply rebooting your computer may clear that error message. Starting Microsoft Outlook in safe mode by the outlook.exe /safe command should allow you to get into your email. You can either enter this command into a run box or open a command prompt and type it in.
Looking for and stopping any duplicate Outlook.exe processes is another possibility. Finally, booting your computer into safe mode and disabling any third party software ie. anti virus or firewall and then opening Microsoft Outlook to narrow down the culprit. You can read more information about this error and full solution descriptions at the following Microsoft page.
Rule out the possibility that your Internet connection is down and the cause of this error. Double check to make certain that your Microsoft Outlook email settings are correct. If in doubt, create another account to rule out the possibility this error is caused by a corrupt Microsoft Outlook email profile.
