Aircraft Component Repair Frequently Asked Questions
Computer Doozy – Malware – Unable to log in, and I have no idea what the Admin Password is. ?
Sooo – here’s my dilemma.
1. AntivirusPlus planted itself on my computer. Booo. Constant popups, telling me to buy their product. I didn’t even so much as click on their link.
2. Ran Spybot Search and Destroy found 72 instances of trojans, malware, and all sorts of great stuff. It wasn’t able to remove 3 components, because they were found in the memory. It asked for my permission to run on startup after rebooting.
3. I reboot
4. The logon screen appears, with 2 accounts… I click on the usual…it begins to log in, then BAM, it logs me right back off to the main screen. And the password doesn’t work for the other account.
5. I tried logging in through safemode… But I get an error message: “A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.” blablabla “Technical information: *** STOP: 0x000000007E and some other numbers”.
6. I put in the system recovery disk (DELL Dimenstion E521)(WIN XP) – and it starts just fine… Then, of course….it asks me for an Administrator Password – WHICH I DON’T HAVE!
So…I’m devastated. I just got married, and all my pictures are on there…Tax Returns… Of course I’m an idiot and have been putting off making a backup CD.
As it all completely lost? Any help anybody can offer would be soooo greatly appreciated. Thank you!
Wonderful – thanks for all the great responses!
My greatest concern is getting the data from it…I could care less about losing all my drivers and software I have. Those are easily replaced – the pictures and tax returns, however, are not.
I think I’ll buy a lame little harddrive and do as you suggested. Thank you! I’d rate your answers, but apparently my level isn’t high enough.
U can just reinstall windows and see if that works!
Regarding ur pictures and other important files, it is always safer to keep them on the partitions other than the partition on which u have installed the windows e.g. If u have installed windows on drive C: then keep ur files on drive D: or E: or F:. If this is the case then u can easily reinstall windows by formatting ur C: drive. If ur files are on the same partition then install windows on other partition and then recover ur files using that and then format that previous partition. If nothing works then take the help of a expert for the data recovery.
Why do I keep getting this message?
Ok so I will be just on a website like this or myspace or something and all the sudden the main page goes from normal to this wierd thing then I get this message that says
“Warning!!! Your system requires immediate anti-viruses scan! Personal Antivirus can perform fast and free virus and malicious software scan of your computer .”
then it says ok or cancel and I click the “x” in the top right hand corner then it goes to this screen that looks like the my computer screen then I quickly click out of that tab and then I get this error message
“Harmful and malicious software detected. These programs may damage your computer and steal your private information. Online Security Scanner requires Personal Antivirus components to repair your computer. Please click Ok to download and install Personal Antivirus tool.” and again I click out of it as fast as I can.
I mean I have MacAfee virus scan (which is running right now and it hasn’t found anything), a firewall…
So what is this?? Should I be worried that it is a virus stealing my information or something?? What should I do?? Thanks!!
I do use firefox
‘Click-jacking’ & ‘Drive-by’ rouge malware
These exploits have been especially intense on ‘Social Networking’ sites & peer-2-peer fileshare sites.
You likely have this setting which permitted this rouge to enter your system:
IE> Tools> Internet Options> Advanced> ‘Allow active content to run files in my computer’ (which allows ‘Active X’)
Look for more specific removal guides, based on the behavior of your system, to kill the malware.
Microsoft’s “Malicious Software Removal Tool” removes many known villains.
And ‘Malwarebytes’ does a good job, most of the time.
Because of inherent architecture of the Internet (notably ‘Flash’ scripting) these vulnerabilities are readily exploited in Internet Explorer, and until fixes are made available throughout the Security Community, it is now urgent that you use Firefox WITH the ‘NoScript’ add-on, which will prevent “Click-jacking’.
I need somebody to check my resume and give me a feedback?Thank you!?

First thing I’d do – run spellcheck! You misspell ‘experience’ right off the bat. You also give no indication of just what you were doing for that unnamed organization from 6/10-1/11. I’d also lose most (if not all) of the ‘personal interest’ section…frankly, most companies couldn’t care less what you do for fun.
How to hook up my PS3 (40GB) to my Dell 2405FPW Monitor?
Okay, so I’ve hooked up the composite video (yellow) jack that came included from the PS3 to my monitor. However, this only allows a resolution of 480i for gaming on my PS3.
First, some information about my monitor…
Video inputs: D-Sub; DVI; S-Video; Composite; and Component. Also, it is not HDCP compliant.
Okay, so what I’ve basically gathered in my knowledge so far is that my monitor is incapable of displaying in full 1080p using an HDMI–>DVI converter due to the lack of HDCP, which is fine because my PC is connected to the DVI port. I’m not quite interested in watching Blu-Rays on this system yet, I’ll probably a FullHD TV for that.
Since my system can’t display 1080p, I found out that through using the component cables I can view at 1080i or 720p, and that’s perfectly fine. I just want to get out of 480i. However, I’m not sure about the process of how to do this or exactly what cables I’ll need.
In addition, I don’t have a means of listening to the audio. I’ve recently purchased some computer speakers, but they simply plug into the 3.5mm headphone jacks on my computer for their audio, and the PS3 unfortunately doesn’t have one of those.
I was hoping that someone could help me devise a way so that I can connect my Playstation 3 into my monitor so that I have both audio and 1080i video resolution. I just need to know EXACTLY what I’ll need, such as adapters, cables, etc. for this rig to work, because at this point I’m confused for what is necessary. It’s possible for me to return the speakers and purchase new ones for the set-up to work so that I can hear the sound from my PS3, but I would prefer to avoid that option if possible (though I will consider it if there is good reason to).
I’d TRULY appreciate anyone that can help me on this subject since it is becoming a hassle to figure all this out on my own.
Here’s a link to a site with a lot of detailed pictures and information about my monitor: http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/monitors/2405fpw/En/about.htm
These are my PS3 specs:
Ethernet (10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX, 1000BASE-T) IEEE 802.11 b/g Wi-Fi*
Bluetooth 2.0 (EDR)
Wireless Controller Bluetooth (up to 7)
Screen size: 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p
HDMI**: HDMI out – (x1 / HDMI)
Analog: AV MULTI OUT x 1
Digital audio: DIGITAL OUT (OPTICAL) x 1
Blu-ray/DVD/CD DRIVE “read only”
USB 2.0 X 2
Approximately 325mm (W) x 98mm (H) x 274mm (D)
Approximately 5 kg
Cell Broadband Engine™
256MB XDR Main RAM
256MB GDDR3 VRAM
2.5′ Serial ATA (40GB)
Since your Dell monitor is not HDCP-compliant, you can’t use the DVI digital connection on that monitor.
You should be able to use a component connection though, since your monitor does have component.
You do need to buy the component cable built specifically for the PS3′s Analog Multiport though: http://www.amazon.com/PlayStation-3-Component-AV-Cable/dp/B000MIXFWA/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=videogames&qid=1270899031&sr=8-1
The component cable has 5 RCA jacks: Y, Pb and Pr for video, and two RCA jacks for left-and-right stereo audio.
Connect the multiport end of that cable to your PS3, and the three YPbPr video RCA jacks to your monitor. The red and white audio RCA jacks you connect to a sound system or a set of PC speakers using an additional dual-RCA-to-stereo-mini adapter.
As you already know, Component will yield a MUCH better picture than composite.
Composite is total crap. Never, EVER use that if you have other alternatives.
Me, I planned ahead and made sure I bought an HDCP-compliant monitor before I bought my PS3 Slim. I’m using a fully-digital HDMI connection.
Dell XPS 720 Black Hardware?
I am interested in purchasing a Dell 720 Black, but I was wondering a few things. I have searched pretty much all over the internet, to know the components, and so on, but I have been unable to find specific information, as I am looking for.
I would like, if possible, to know, from someone that actually owns one of these machines (please note that I am not looking for specculars, or people that think, but only for people that know!), to tell me what brands the system uses.
I would be getting a GTX 8800 768 MB, and that is my main concern: the brand. Do they use named brand (XFX,EVGA,Etc.) or do they use something funky that would have somesort of weird name such as DELLX (lol). And also, if possible, more information on the actual motherboard would be awsesome!
Thanks for all your help guys – you are the best.
Actually, the only NAME brands for graphics cards are Nvidia and ATI. The rest are usually based off these and sold for cheaper using the same drivers. Its kind of like the difference between mercury and ford – the name. Most internal boards will last a lifetime anyway. Nvidia and ATI just usually add more features like AVIVO video for ati.
The main thing you need to be concerned about for gaming is WHAT you are concerned about – the 8600 or 8800. Why? This is the first graphics card by nvidia that uses directx 10 from windows vista. This is the ONLy reason I’m not upgrading to vista as I’ll lose my directx 9 features of my card like automatic video playback on my tv. Ati’s version of the directx 10 cards are the x2 series (x2200, x2900, etc.)
just remember that GEFORCE is by nvidia and RADEON is by ATI so anytime you see, for example, evga geforce – its a knockoff of nvidia.
