I would like to ask for help on this problem that I've tried to troubleshoot, but have had no success at. The print spooler on a windows XP Home Edition SP3 machine is refusing to start. Previous to this problem, 5 or 6 printers had been configured and working for many months. 1. Printers and Faxes window is EMPTY, except for "Add Printer" 2. Click "Add Printer", returned error message: "Operation could not be completed. The print spooler service is not running." 3. Execute: net start spooler, returned error message: "The service name is invalid". 4. Execute: services.msc, Print Spooler …

Windows is, according to just about any security expert you ask, the operating system most vulnerable to attack. Unless the security expert happens to be from Microsoft, that is. So it was quite refreshing to see Microsoft admitting to a spike in attacks on Windows this week. [attach]15849[/attach]According to [URL="http://blogs.technet.com/b/mmpc/archive/2010/07/13/update-on-the-windows-help-and-support-center-vulnerability-cve-2010-1885.aspx"]a posting by Holly Stewart on the Microsoft Malware Protection Center Threat Research & Response Blog[/URL] Windows XP and Windows 2003 are officially under attack. Russia has seen ten times as many attack attempts than the global average, and the UK has witnessed a "surge" in the words of Microsoft. Referring …

I used to be an IE8 user and refused to use IE9 or above due to how when there was a conflict with certain cases, it would allow that case. Chrome sucks and I'm never using it again... I hear it actually has security now, but I'm not chancing it killing my compy again. FF is ok, it has security to protect you from the surface layers, but once you browse past that, you're fully open. I currently use Opera 12 which has been working well so far, though there's a few cases where IE8 has done better... I'd use …

According to research commissioned by security vendor [Bit9 + Carbon Black](https://www.bit9.com/solutions/carbon-black/), nearly half (49%) of the organisations questioned admitted they simply didn't know if their businesses had been compromised or not. This uncertainty regarding cyber-attack detection ability comes in stark contrast to the 32% who confirmed they had been attacked during the previous 12 months and the 64% expecting to be targeted in the next 12 months. Looking a little closer at the data, when it comes to who might be attacking them, hacktivists on 86% bizarrely came top of the list ahead of cyber-criminals with 77% and disgruntled employees …

So, Microsoft and iSIGHT uncovered another 0-day vulnerability; this time impacting all supported versions of Microsoft Windows and Windows Server 2008 and 2012. iSIGHT [has detailed](http://www.isightpartners.com/2014/10/cve-2014-4114/) in the wild exploits of the vulnerability, and points the finger of suspicion at state-sponsored Russian interests. The Dallas-based cybersecurity outfit explained that the exploit (dubbed Sandworm) showed visibility targeting Ukranian government organisations, Polish energy businesses and US academic organisations as well as NATO itself, and warned that there is an obvious potential for much broader targeting from the same and new threat actors. The researchers have been tracking at least five distinct Russia-based …

Microsoft will stop releasing security updates, hotfixes and other updates for Windows XP SP2 on July 13th 2010. No biggie, you might think, after all Windows XP SP3 was released way back in April 2008 and since then we've had both Vista (perhaps best forgotten) and the much more palatable Windows 7. Yet despite the death of XP SP2 being absolutely no surprise to IT admins the world over, it would seem that a large number of machines within enterprise networks are still running that very version of the Windows OS. Qualsys reckons we are still more than a year …

More often than not I'll be writing about the security problems facing Windows XP users, such as when I recently reported how a large number of enterprises are still running XP SP2 machines which will shortly [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/news/story287954.html"]stop being supported by Microsoft[/URL] in terms of security updates, hotfixes and the like. So imagine my surprise, at the same time that [URL="http://windowsteamblog.com/windows/b/bloggingwindows/archive/2010/06/09/reminder-windows-xp-end-of-sales-and-end-of-support-deadlines.aspx"]Microsoft reminds us[/URL] that it's the end of the line for Windows XP netbooks, to finally get hold of a story about Windows XP being good for security. OK, so the report from the [URL="http://blog.webroot.com/2010/06/14/spammed-trojan-wont-run-under-windows-xp/"]Webroot Threat Blog[/URL] is a pretty damn …

I have a Dell Optiplex PC with a legal copy of Windows XP. But the Dell hardware seems to be failing. The problem is that the XP distribution CD I got with the computer is a Dell distribution disk, possibly with files specific to Dell (It says both Dell and Microsoft). If I can't fix the hardware, I need to find a way to transfer my hard drive or the OS and software to another computer. How much different is a Dell Optiplex from a newer HP computer I have (with Linux installed)? I used a standard Microsoft XP installation …

Everytime I try to use mozilla firefox or google chrome a message pops up reading "The application or DLL C:\WINDOWS\system32\USP10.dll is not a valid Windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette". It only lets me use internet explorer web browser. I have tried many different things to try to fix it but have had no luck. I tried restoring my computer, running an anti virus program, restarting my computer, etc. Please help. If you need any more information please let me know. Thanks.

Hi. I have a very old computer at my job. It will not boot up except for safe mode with networking. Suprisingly I like it better in this mode because it is 100 times faster. I do not know if it is plagued with viruses or has had a crash. Unfortunately, I can not print in safe mode. So I either need to be able to print in safe mode or get it back to booting up normaally. PLEASE HELP!!!

this is just a nifty feature I can't seem to find on google... (I've found 1 src "Windows7ProgressBar", but I can't get it working with the bad instructions provided) ^ I'm guessing they expect you to know C# when they say "drag the control over the form" - the "control" is a dll file, I think... and I have no idea what the "form" is (it's not the included exe) everyone's been working on transforming XP into the looks of 7, and they've done a remarkable job... but I don't want the full look of 7, I only want a …

I am trying to help a customer restore their connectivity to their server. earlier this week, a power outage wiped out thier servers' internet connection and the connection to 2 computers, I'll call them 1 and 2. We advised them to replace the wireless usb adapter they were using to have internet connectivity on 1, 2, and the server only. Here is the way this is all connected: the server (windows XP sp3) has a wired connection (.88) that goes to a switch, and allows those computers to connect to the server, no problems there. the server has a wireless …

I want to copy a folder full of folders to a backup on another disk. But if a duplicate filename already exists on the other disk, I want Windows to prompt to ask whether or not to replace the file for each file separately. Windows XP just gives me the option to replace all of the files or not copy the folder. Only if I copy only one folder will it prompt individual files. There are hundreds of folders in this structure, but less than 100 duplicate file names. But I don't know where the duplicates are, and do not …

[ATTACH]16171[/ATTACH] Windows 7 offers heaps of computing-gravy for users that are looking for something sweeter than XP and less bitter than Vista. It has been optimized and overhauled into a truly modern version of Windows. Unfortunately for a lot of users, upgrading from XP is a daunting task if you want to preserve your files, settings, and programs. This is where Zinstall XP7 comes into play. It creates a virtual machine (VM) based on your old XP installation that can be accessed within Windows 7. It gives you a hot-swappable desktop that allows you to experience 7 without going through …

However, with Windows Explorer (and other utilities that access files), I can see all the files in any folder, but as soon as I try to do anything with any file, the system crashes and reboots. It says an error code of 100007e. I AM running as an administrator. Any help appreciated.

Is there a program or printer driver on the interwebs somewhere that allows me to print to 2 printers simultaneously while having it show up as one printer under the Windows Printers & Faxes section? I am in retail and we are trying to come up with a workaround that allows us to send receipts to 2 printers but our program only allows 1 receipt printer. I ran a brief Google search but the results were inconclusive (there's a lot of junk in regards to printer drivers out there). Thanks for the assistance!

After installing Windows XP Professional SP3 version 2002 on a Dell Inspiron 1011 mini (2GB RAM 500GB HDD), I am not able to see the entire screen. I started having this problem after I upgraded the RAM (When I had Ubuntu 12.04 LTS on it). Is the problem caused by a driver, the operating system, a hardware malfunction, or is it caused by a loose connection from the laptop screen? P.S. When Ubuntu was on it, sometimes when I would boot it up, the screen was back to normal (I could see everything on the screen). It did this at …
