I contacted Dell and they think the hard drive is failing. I will run a diagnostic and see what it comes up with.

I'd best contact MLS tomorrow and have the connection reset just in case I have to move them to the other computer in the building.

As far as I know it is the OEM disc sent with the machine. There were no other disc in the office.

I will contact Dell and find out what the options are.

Can't reinstall windows!

After another fun evening with a certain Ward Computer it was decided to simply reformat the drive. I know this machine has had malware and who knows what else on it and now it will run OK for a few minutes then come to a stop for 15 or 20 minutes before going again. When I went to do a clean instal...

I ran Malwarebytes on a machine last Saturday and now it has slowed down to a crawl. Malwarebytes removed 101 files at that time.

I carry SuperAntiSpyware on my flash drive, but wasn't aware of Ad-Adware.

Will run the other two tonight and see what happens.

Thanks

DSL Modem options

It's just running on a 2Wire DSL modem which doesn't give many options on blocking certain sites. Selectively blocking certain websites isn't one of them. The more I think about the better the idea of locking it up sounds. I recently had the firewall at our stake center fail. The first thing I did w...

Win Boot Antvirus CD

OK,

I missed something!

All the links I find relate to creating a Linux Boot CD, even the ones that state they are for Windows.

Any suggestions on finding a solution that doesn't require a bit of dabbling with the unknown?

Thanks,

Computer running slow

I Just got the typical 9:30 pm call from a Bishop informing me that his Ward's computer was running very slowly. I removed 101 malware infected files from it last Saturday and it started up for me two or three times and ran just fine. I have made a bootable Anti-Virus CD as suggested in another thre...

Dell Serial Number lookup

Hi, I stumbled on this today when I received some machines from Dell at my work. https://support.dell.com/support/systemsinfo/mysystemslist.aspx?c=us&cs=RC956904&l=en&s=bsd&~ck=pn First set up a log in then enter the service tag numbers for your machines. Once that's done you can cli...

Will run wire - less time than restoring machine to new.

I visited it on Saturday afternoon and have reached the conclusion that someone has disabled or deleted files it needs to work. Will simply loop a wire from the firewall in one clerk's office to this one, about 30 feet door to door. Interesting building - to get to this part of the attic I use a lad...

I think it connected initially when we set up the network earlier this year. The Stake Tech who set it up had an unexpected change in his work and moved to Texas. I did help to run the wires to access points in the attic but that was the end of it until I was called to take his place. I have reinsta...
