I made great progress this morning in resolving a number of problems that were plaguing my Win7 laptop. It was difficult to find good info about how to resolve these problems. I can provide more details if anyone needs them. Here are the bare bones: * **High CPU** There are a number of common programs that churn the CPU. These are known problems but the Software companies don't seem to care. **CONDUIT Search Protect** From what I've read, this is almost like a virus. Softronic Download service has an agreement with them and include this in their 'Express' downloads. If …

Say I have a table like this ID -- Val1 --- Val2 1 4 5 1 7 2 1 5 9 2 9 8 2 1 2 3 9 8 3 9 5 3 7 4 3 5 7 4 7 3 5 7 9 5 4 4 How do I get the averages of Val1 and Val2 per unit ID and store it into a new table? Notice that the number of rows per ID is different. Eg new table: ID -- Av_Val1 -- Av_Val2 1 5 5 2 5 5 and so on..

Hi, Good day! My problem is that I can't install any anti-virus on a PC... I strongly believe it has many viruses because it slow-ups the unit. Almost all of the anti-virus I run ([URL="http://www.avira.com/en/avira-free-antivirus"]Avira[/URL], [URL="http://www.avast.com/index"]Avast[/URL], [URL="http://www.kaspersky.com/kaspersky_internet_security"]KIS[/URL], [URL="http://www.kaspersky.com/"]KAV[/URL] and [URL="http://free.avg.com/ww-en/homepage"]AVG[/URL]) cannot install successfully as if being destroyed or blocked by something. I am looking forward for any help from the community. Best regards, coldflame [URL="http://romel-beyondme.blogspot.com/"]http://www.romel-beyondme.blogspot.com[/URL]

My google searches are getting redirected to other searche engines and blank pages but it doesn't happen all the time it just depends on what I'm searching for. I'm not sure if I have the google redirect virus since I don't alway get redirected but when I do I can never get to where I want. I have used AVG, Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, ESET online scanner, SUPERAntiSpyware to solve the problem but none of them could pick anything up. Thank you in advance.

There's no news yet on McAfee's [URL="http://www.mcafee.com"]website[/URL] about what happened today when their famed antivirus program went bonkers and froze computers by misidentifying a common Windows file as a virus. If it's an actual virus hack, it's a pretty darn clever one--to make the antivirus program think a system file is a virus so that the computer halts. This might be the first time I'd ever actually applaud a virus creator. I usually prescribe some sort of cruel and unusual punishment for such mongrels who write viruses and then unleash them upon the world's innocent but this time is different. …

Greetings. Looking for some help with my Vista based laptop. I have steered clear of Limewire, etc. and been very careful about what I download and install on my HP laptop, but the other day I had a blue screen pop up suddenly with a scary and long error message. Then my laptop shut down and I was unable to take note of any of the details of the message. NOW, browsers (even Chrome & Firefox) are slow, java based websites and applications often crash, and my overall performance is much slower. I've noticed my cursor often jumps from the …

What happens when your security software thinks your operating system is out to get you? Users of AVG8 discovered the answer when it decided that a Windows XP user32.dll system file was infected with a Trojan, and deleted it. Uh oh Buck, biddly biddly biddly. What happens when you delete the user32.dll in Windows XP? Well it might not reboot at all. If you are lucky it might try to reboot and then enter into a never ending reboot cycle. Neither are exactly good things to happen to your computer. That said, as The Inquirer [URL="http://www.theinquirer.net/gb/inquirer/news/2008/11/13/avg-update-cripples-windows-xp"]reported[/URL] you cannot argue with …

Attention Microsoft Users -- As of late Tuesday afternoon Chicago time, major news networks are reporting being affected by a new bug called Zotob. It affects Microsoft systems, as described in a Microsoft Bulliton MS05-039, a document that was released earlier this month. CERT sources say that they have seen several variets of the Zobot [sic] worm. The Worm is reported to scan for vunerable systems on port 445. Port 445 is part of the protocols that Microsoft uses for directory services. Interestingly enough, as I am typing this to you, Microsoft has not made any publications on it's main …
