  • 1. CHKDSK locks-up while verifying indexes
    At start-up my computer displays the following message - System Root/Windows/System32. autocheck not found skipping DSKCHK. After reading some posts on this forum I thought it might be a good idea to force a CHKDSK. At the command prompt I typed chkdsk C: /r to run the chkdsk at the next start-up. After I prompted a reboot, my computer started the process. The computer completed Stage 1, which is File Verification. The problem occurred during Stage 2 which is Verifying Indexes. After showing 3% complete my computer locked-up. After re-starting I had to go into the set-up screen to reset my computer to the last known good configuration, otherwise I was locked in a continuous cycle of the computer locking-up at restart. With chkdsk locking up, does that mean my hard drive has a bad sector, does it mean my hard drive is about to crash, or is it all related to the error message shown above that I get at start-up. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  • 2. run time errors in internet
    Hi there, I'm looking for advice on 'run time error' and 'do you wish to debug' boxes that keep appearing on random internet pages. I posted a question on the 'general' forum about this happening on one site only and was told that is was probably caused by the website owner modifying the script - sure enough, it hasn't happened on that specific website since - but now it's happening on other sites. Should I be worried? Thanks, chrissyd.
  • 3. Keyboard letters coming out numbers
    When I type letters, my keyboard types random numbers (well I guess not random because my O consistently shows up as 6.) I am operating WinXP Pro on my laptop...the keyboard laptop driver is for a standard 102 key laptop. help!!
  • 4. HELP!!! Computer will not boot into Windows!
    One of my computers (running XP Pro SP3) will not boot into Windows! I have no idea what caused this! It starts up, goes through the first part of the boot process, but will not boot into Windows, other than safe mode. When it gets to a certain point, it always reboots and starts over, never loading Windows at all. I've gone into the BIOS setup utility (Thinkpad R60), but cannot find anything to fix it there. I can boot into safe (regular, with networking, or command prompt) mode, but not into regular mode. While in safe mode I did a "System Restore", back to a restore point when the system was functioning. Yet still, it does not boot, other than safe mode. So--if the problem had to do with registry, services, drivers, etc., one would think that it would be fixed by a system restore to a time the system booted fine. While booted in safe mode, I tried the following also--I went to msconfig, and chose diagnostic startup, which is supposed to startup without loading drivers and services. I rebooted, and again it would not boot into Windows, unless I chose safe mode. What other diagnostic steps can I take? What else should I try from safe mode, to get it to boot in normal mode again? Thanks to anyone who can help.
  • 5. Activation Query
    Hi there, I hope this doesn't sound stupid but after a power outage I couldn't boot into my Windows Xp Pro SP3 (retail) PC. I then repair installed Windows using my Slipstreamed XP Pro SP3 disk, and can use the PC fine etc, My question is, I have not been asked to Activate this copy of windows, and there is no Activate icon in my start menu, is this normal as I seem to remember having to activate an SP2 repair a couple of years ago. Thanks for any help. -- The Glory Hornet

It is not in the control panel's Add/Remove Programs.  Something has
hijacked my internet connection.

Thank you,

It's a result of Microsoft  Update KB951748. Zonealarm isn't
compatible with it.

there is info at betanews
about the update by microsoft
to the dns.

frankly i have never been
a fan of zaterous and comode
freewares for a variety
of reasons and have no
issue of telling people
not to bother with them.

in any case your msg
sounds that at least they did
not hijack your system.

Hello everyone. I have setup a VPN (IPSec) between two

can ping both networks, but what I cannot do(or know how

Does anyone know of a MS document that explains what I

before and can give me some good tips. I appreciate your 


4.again on two firewalls running

on 04.09.05 i posted the following, about which firewall to switch off:

[ Hi, i am connected to broadband via widows xp which comes with its own
firewall. i have installed a 'zone alarm' free firewall. windows say not to 
have two firewalls running at the same time.  which would be the best one to 
keep going and which to switch off please? ]

many thanks for all responses. the 'concensus' was to switch off the windows 
firewall and keep the zone alarm going. which i have now done. however i 
have now discovered that my Belkin wireless ADSL modem router also has a 
firewall enabled.

am i safe to switch this off as well please? or since it's in the modem i 
should keep it enabled for safety?  many thanks for any further advice. 

5.Do I need two firewalls?


I have Norton Internet Security 2006 running on my three machine LAN.  Each
machine sits behind a wireless router (Linksys WRT54GS) which has a SPI
firewall.  My question is - do I need the Norton Firewall as well as the SPI

Thanks for any help.
