I thought about asking you about the repair option before I hit install but I ask so many questions. I should've asked you. The computer is still under warranty so if it doesn't work for some reason, I can call them and fuss that their partition / repair disk didn't work and it didn't have a reinstall disk with it. I'm a good fusser ;)

No worries, it happens.

Glad to hear you're under warranty! Its really odd that the repair discs aren't working, this is the first time I've ever seen them choking like this. :huh:

I'm a good fusser ;)

Glad to hear that! :D

Are you really only 17 years old?? I looked at your profile!! :)

Yep, still 17 :)

:) Well, I'm very pleased at your expertise at such a young age. You're bound to have a very fulfilling career ahead of you.

Thank you, I appreciate it :)

I'm a high school English teacher :D

Small world! I hope that my grammar was acceptable! :D:lol:

Try this ;)

1. Download the latest network adapter driver from the manufacturer website and install it in compatible mode. If the issue persists, please temporarily disable the adapter and re-enable it again for a test.

2. Verify relevant service

  • a. Click "Start", go to run, type "services.msc" (without quotation marks) in the open box and press Enter.
  • b. Click Continue button to verify the administrator permission.
  • c. Right click the "Network Location Awareness" service and choose Properties.
  • d. On General tab click Start.
  • e. Choose Automatic next to Startup type.
  • f. Click OK.

3. Restart the computer in Safe Mode with Networking for a test.

Yes, it's working fine lol. I'm hysterical at this point!! lol Too much thinking this week ;)

:D Happens to all of us!

Okay, now do I need to do anything to check it for that blame bug?

First, do some Google searches and let me know if you get redirected at all.


Please print out these instructions or copy them to a Notepad file for an easier reading and download MBRCheck by a_d_13 to your Desktop from one of these locations:




Close all opened programs/ windows and double-click on MBRCheck.exe.

It will produce a log file saved automatically on your Desktop as "MBRCheck_[Date]_[Time].txt".

Press the "Enter" key to close the MBRCheck window and post the contents of the log file.

Excellent! Its clean ;)

Let's run Security Check to see what programs need to be updated :)

Please download Security Check by screen317 from here or here.

  • Save it to your Desktop.
  • Double click SecurityCheck.exe and follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.
  • A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt; please post the contents of that document.

Well, first thing is first ;)


Navigate to Windows Update and download and install any of the updates it says you are missing.


You have NO antivirus program installed !

It is really dangerous to go online without an antivirus. Without one, you are extremely likely to get infected and the consequences could be even worse next time. All of the following are excellent free antiviruses. Be sure to only install one.





You need Java to run many of your applications.

Download the newest version from here http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html.


Adobe Reader is located here: Adobe Reader X


To make sure you have the latest version of Adobe Flash Player installed:

1. To uninstall an older version, download this file to your Desktop: uninstall_flash_player.exe

2. Quit ALL running applications, including all Internet Explorer or other browser windows, and messenger applications (like AOL Instant Messenger, Yahoo Messenger, MSN Messenger).

3. Double-click on the file you've downloaded to uninstall Flash.

4. If uninstalled successfully, go to this site: Install Adobe Flash Player, and choose Agree and install now. This will install the newest version of Flash for your browser (note: Flash plugins for IE and Firefox must be installed separately).

Note: I recommend you uncheck an optional install (Free McAfee Security Scan or Free Google Toolbar).


Please consider using an alternate browser. Mozilla's Firefox browser is a very good alternative. In addition to being generally more secure than Internet Explorer, it has a very good built-in popup blocker and add-ons, like NoScripts, can make it even more secure. Opera is another good option.

If you are interested, Firefox may be downloaded from here

Opera is available here: http://www.opera.com/download/


Let me know how the updates went ;)

It's all going well!! It may take awhile (there's like 89 updates for Windows lol), so if you want to go to bed, you can check back in the morning. I'm going to stay up tonight and finish them so I'll post when they're done. I feel really good about it all though! THANKS!!! SO MUCH!!
