  1. I tried it in safe mode and it worked. I removed several rootkit and trojan kovter malwares. PC is working better. Thank you for your assistance.
  2. I have downloaded AdwCleaner but the system doesn't let me install it. I am getting a ton of malware, adware popups. Almost every few seconds.
  3. Hi, I recently started having these websites open up. It says my computer is infected. I am currently running McAfee stinger and it already found a trojan named artemis. It says it has deleted it. It is still running the scan and I am still getting the popups with the message noted about. I downloaded malwarebytes and it says it is installed, but when i click on the icon it won't open the application. Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks.
  4. Hi Tarun, I tried to install windows 10, but it doesn't seem to want to download. It says it's downloading but it never does. Download percent completion is always at 0 percent. Any idea what I can do? Thanks.
  5. I've yet to use Windows 10. How has it worked for you? Are there a lot of bugs for MSFT to work out or does it run smoothly? I have MSFT Office 2007. Will W10 work with Office 2007? Thanks for the reply. Eddie
  6. I keep getting messages about upgrading to Windows 10 for free. Is this really free and legit? It says it's from Microsoft. Message says I have until July 29, 2016. Any comments are appreciated. Thanks Eddie
  7. Can someone recommend a decent brand of a wireless router. Something not to expensive, but funtional. Thanks
  8. I just bought a new hard drive on ebay. 7200 rpm. I got it for $40 with free shipping. Thanks.
  9. Thank GK! Are refurbished drives worth buying?
  10. I ran the seatools test (DOS version) and it fails all tests. I contacted HP and they wanted to sell me the following for $90 plus shipping: 250GB SATA hard disk drive - 7,200 RPM, 2.5-inch form factor, 9.5MM thick. I think that's a bit high in my opinion. Will any SATA 2.5 work? What about SATA II or SATA III? are those compatible with my system? How can I determine if they are? I also thought it was supposed to have a 250GB HD but when i opened it up it had a 100GB HDD. I bought it from my coworker and she bought it at Walmart last year and swears she's never replaced it. Pretty good machine overall. Has Windows 7 and 3GB Ram. Thanks
  11. My laptop needs a new hard drive. How do I know what type i need? The laptop is an HP model number is G60-519WM. Thanks Eddie
  12. Thank you for all the replies. Very helpful.
  13. I downloaded the newest version of Java and on the website it said to remove older versions of Java. I have the newest version Java 7 Update 7 and what I had previously, Java 6 Update 23 (64-bit). Should I remove the Java TM 6 version? PC is working fine.
  14. I guess the P in PATA stands for Pain in the arse. :)
  15. I believe it's a SATA. The powersource connector is about 1 inch wide, while the connector from the motherboard is about 1/2" wide. SATA, right? Thanks
  16. My grandson's PC needs a new internal hard drive. The PC is a Dell Dimension 8300 and currently has a Seagate Barracuda 7200.7, model #8T3120026A8. Can someone that knows about hard drives please provide a link or two of some compatible hard drives. I am looking for something similar to the original specs at an affordable price. thanks Eddie
  17. It has several options when defragging one PC. What option should I be using?
  18. I see, I believe you have speakers that got 5 or 12 volt from the PC before, some "brandname" PC used those and the were mostly attached to the screen itself. Or, the old computer had a build in amplifier. A good set of stereospeakers would be between 50 and 100USD. Speakers are personal, so I would listen to a good set a local shop if possible. Note that they need to have a build-in amplifier as your new computer will only put out a few mili-watts. If you are not sure what to pick you can always ask us again . Thanks again. Have a good day!
  19. Thanks for the info. Good to know. I will begin my search this weekend.
  20. Did you test those same speakers with a MP3 player or walkman or so? If headphones work, the speakers should work too, so I think it's your speakers and not the soundcard or onboard sound connections. Test that first. Now, about the new set of speakers; what setup do you want (eg. 2.1, 5.1 or stereo) and how much do you like to spend on those including shipping? The speakers are fine. They worked on my old pc. I believe I need some AC powered speakers or USB connection. Not sure what 2.1, 5.1 means? Stereo I would assume would be high quality sound reproduction.
  21. Can someone recommend some good speakers for my PC? I believe they need to be USB because my old speakers that you plug into the back of the PC don't work. Only the ear phones reproduce sound when connected to the audio output. Thanks in advance.
  22. Were you able to get past the "Test Unavailable" problem in any way? Not yet but I will try and hook it up again and try running the test.
