  1. He wont have a copy of that and I'm not sure what it is, I don't live that close to him so its via phone calls that I was trying to help him I don't think he will have much data to loose, he doesn't have many photos or films or music that I know of, he just uses the PC to browse and do a little online shopping so possibly any passwords he will have might be lost but I'm sure he can get those back. I think finding a copy is he only hope, he is phoning Dell in the morning to query it but I doubt they would send him a disc out free. Thanks for the help
  2. As I mentioned in another post my friend got this blue screen this morning saying "Unmountable boot volume", Googling this seems to come up with a fairly easy fix, that is insert the XP disc, but he cannot find it and as the PC is 6+ years old we are not sure that it came with a disc as its from Dell and sometimes they just preinstall it. Any way of fixing this without the disc or if he could get his hands of say a friends XP copy will that work or does it have to be his copy to match with the key? Thanks
  3. Thanks for the link, it might have been something else that broke it while he was trying to upgrade, his PC froze and crashed I think and now it has that issue but it might be something to do with it being a old machine, its 6+ years old now but its good to hear FF4 works on XP I will tell him and send him the link Thanks
  4. My friend was upgrading to FireFox v 4 and his PC crashed, he got a blue screen saying "Unmountable boot volume" which he got even in safe mode, I googled the anwser for him so he is now trying to find his disc to repair it but seeing as he runs XP I think I remember seeing on the FF site that v4 was for Vista upwards so that might be the reason it crashed? If so I need to find the old and latest v3. for him so it wont happen again. I have searched on the site but I don't seem to be able to see it, is it still available? Thanks.
  5. Thanks a lot for your help Screen317
  6. Yep its still disabled, thats good as I thought it might not what with it being an install rather than a update.
  7. damn I thought it would , I did google before I posted but I didn't see anything specific to ff4 so I will presume its just the same as 3? thanks for that!
  8. Hi I updated to FF4 a few days ago and was wondering if geo-location was still disabled or would I have to re-disable it or does ff4 no longer have GL?
  9. Fine I think a few teething issues with ff4 but thats it! Thanks a lot for your help
  10. Thanks, I've updated FF4 and it is taking some getting use to found and removed Mcafee too, is that it? am I clean?
  11. Thanks, I have done that although I accidentally, when DLing Adobe DL'd the Macafee security scan as part of it, do you know how to find and uninstall this? And I thought FF4 was still in beta? I updated it to 3.6.16 only a few days ago.
  12. The ESET scan found nothing but I could not find the log on my PC to post. I will do the other one later.

  13. Might take me a few days to be able to do this, is that ok? I wont be near my PC till possibly the end of the weekend sorry.
  14. Ah right, I was just checking, so my DDS logs are clear then? I just want to make sure as I am going to start to use my PC for banking and buying things online.
  15. Yep, the system restore worked perfectly and I now have no issues, the fact GMER always crashes is not a good sign though is it? why would it not work? EDIT Just to say I ran checkdisc and nothing was found it was all fine.
  16. Thank you for the help AdvancedSetup, I have done as you asked
  17. Hi a few days ago I changed the settings on my router to WEP and then a few hours later changed it back to WPA (though working out how to do this took time) My PC was not connected to the net at this time as it disconnected when the router was changed. But after this on start up things were either totally unresponsive or taking up to 30 mins to open. FF and Thunderbird took up to 30 mins, though Opera will take 10 mins, Open office likewise is taking ten mins. The icon stated that I am connected to the net, its just that nothing would open for 10-30 mins. Once it did open it was fine so I have no idea why it is took so long for this, all I can think of is it is something to do with the router setting but that still would not prohibit FF at least trying to open. I gave up and did a system restore which fixed the issue and now my PC works perfectly. I have scanned with MBAM and it found nothing.

GMER keeps crashing my PC after stalling during the scan. (It has always crashed on me from previous tries at running many months ago) DDS likewise will not run, this post has the PEV wordpad that the log produces http://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?showtopic=77172&pid=397816&st=0entry397816 (This is the first time I have had issues with DDS though) Should I run the Defogger and try again? I ran a HJT but I think it is a out of date version.

Do these seem to point to something like a infection? Thank you for the help. edit to attach dds logs, I ran it in admin and it worked this time. The GMER however still freeze-crashes my PC even in admin Attachdds.txt DDSadmin.txt
  18. The same result as the previously attached document I ran a long scan of MBAM and that has found nothing but I have used DDS in the past and it worked fine so I dont understand why it wont now?
  19. When I clicked on the DL for DDS the little black box opened with some text, no option to choose a yes to scan and something titled PEV opened up in word pad which I have attached as its the only thing that opened. PEV.txt
  20. Thanks AdvancedSetup, Should I post the DDS log here? I will try to do this tomorrow, its a bit late in the UK now
  21. While it was "loading" for 30+ mins I opened the TM and nothing was in it. I decided I had had enough and did a system restore and that has fixed the issue. I dont think I am infected as it happened while just trying to get my PC back to recognise the router, I have a feeling that somewhere down the line I might have clicked something and changed something, I really have no idea, I don't have a shared folder as this is the only PC in the house and the DSi which I made the router WEP for was not on. I think I might leave it and see what happens as it seems "fixed" for want of a better word. If it was a virus would SR have fixed this? Or mask the symptoms? How do I disc check again? I have a feeling I have done it wrong in the past.
  22. I have been trying to use vistas speech recog with some success, normal things like note pad and opening files is fine, but i would like to use it to browse and possiblt type in IRC/Messenger. You can sometimes get it to work in IE but its hit and very miss, plus I don't like to use IE. Should I give up using it or is there a way? If not is there another program that allows this? Thanks.
  23. Oh they are PDF? on the sites that I have looked at they say to use a ereader I will look into that. Thanks.
  24. I love gimp and paint.net, so simple to use! I also use the limited versions of phantasmagoria and project dogwaffle and occasionally MS paint
