    Network messages stuck above systray

    This has been happening recently every time I boot up. Sometimes its "Not connected - No connections are available" or it can be "Network Internet access" when it is connected. It goes when I double click the network icon but that isn't really a solution as it shouldn't get stuck there in the...

    LAN Desktop Shortcut doesn't do anything first time its clicked, works second time, very odd!

    Here's an unusual problem that's occurred recently. On my desktop is a shortcut to Local Area Connection, when I click on it for the first time nothing happens but does on the second double click. More detail: Let's say I've booted the computer up for the first time in the day and I go to...

    This is a recent problem and I'm sorry if this is the wrong place to post such a question but I'm getting desperate for an answer and I'm going to keep asking everywhere until there's a fix. Basically every time I log in to facebook this message box appears: As you can see there is no 'don't...

    This is rather worrying, today Malwarebytes finds a Trojan called Sathurbot however, when the computer reboots after cleaning, it's back in the icons folder. also google isn't aware of it's existence: Can anyone shed any light on this, much appreciated.

    Windows 'Expolrer' entry in Firewall. Not a spelling error.

    Looking at my Windows Firewall allowed programs I found 2 entries called Windows Expolrer - note the spelling of explorer. One of them is ticked for Home/Work, the other for Public. Why are there two instances of this 'file' and more importantly, why can't I delete them? I've searched the...

    Windows 7 search locks up computer when going up one level from results

    Windows 7 built in search is terrible. For a start it starts searching before you've finished typing the search term. It doesn't display the folder path in search results. When I click on a folder and then try to go back or up one level it hangs my computer to the point where I have to force...

XP was ok for that, it didn't matter what size icons one had... Not a...

    What does the '-k' mean after svchost.exe?

    Probably an odd question, however, i'd like to know the answer. It's to do with that svchost.exe thing that's running. When I typed svchost.exe in a search engine sometimes it'll say something like 'svchost.exe -k netsvcs' what is the meaning of '-k'? I like to know these things! lol...
