    1394 Net Adapter not working properly - no Internet connection

    I have an old Windows XP computer that has been getting updates regularly, so I am not worried about it being hacked. But after reinstalling XP, it can only access the Internet via a wireless adapter, not via an ethernet connection. And when I plug the ethernet cable into the computer, there is...

    DVD/CD burner creates a CD but cannot play the CD it creates

    That's actually what I was trying to say. This was rather random before, but now every time I want to burn a CD I need to uninstall the device and then reboot, so that it will re-install. I think this device is pretty much a lost cause. Thanks for trying.

    DVD/CD burner creates a CD but cannot play the CD it creates

    I cleaned it, but did not resolve the issue. No sure what you mean by firmware. I tried to update the driver but it said the best driver was already installed. Here is a new wrinkle. In order to write to the CD, I now have to uninstall and then reinstall the DVD/CD drive every time.

    DVD/CD burner creates a CD but cannot play the CD it creates

    I am running Windows 7 Pro. My DVD/CD drive (HL-DT-ST_BDDVDRW_CT30F) plays commercial CDs fine. And it can (usually) burn a CD from a file on my laptop. But it is never able to play the CD it just burned. Any idea what is going on? I say it can usually burn a CD, because often it does not even...

    Can no longer open Windows Movie Maker

    Interesting. I think what I would rather do is install an old Pinnacle Studio CD that I have. It is probably good enough to meet my needs. Thanks.

    Can no longer open Windows Movie Maker

    You may very well be right, as I install and uninstall programs a lot. The only security app, however, was an upgrade on my antivirus - ESET. It is probably just a coincidence, but I noticed that I could not open Movie Maker less than 24 hours after Windows installed 28 updates.

    Task Scheduler Service Is Not Available

    I am running Windows 7 Pro. I went to the Task Scheduler to see - and possibly change - when the creation of a System Restore point is scheduled for. Upon opening the Task Scheduler an error message came up indicating that the Task Dropbox Update was corrupt or tampered with. When I tired to...

    Get an error message when I try to use System Restore. It tells me to check to check Volume Shadow Copy Service. Those settings seem to be OK, except in the process of getting there I get a Script Error message. Can you please help me resolve these issues. Thanks. I have uploaded these two...
