Hey Guys and Gals :) I am very familiar with o/s for windows through XP Home addition so I'm not exactly new to this... I am however fairly new to Windows 7 and that is what my laptop came with. Ok... That being said, I am using (Add and Remove Programs) to un-install the Power2Go program and it is giving me the following message... "The installation source for this program is not available. Verify that the source exists and you can access it. C:WindowsInstallere393c.msi" note: the directory c:windowsinstaller actually does not exist on my harddrive and cannot find any such file with search. I am wondering if there is an easy way to completely remove this program safely without manually going through my registry and deleting every key that refers to Power2Go after manually deleting the program files from my hd. Thanks for you help in advance guys and gals.

Hello everyone, I am fairly good with computers and have gotten a virus which keeps coming back. My computer was working fine, and then I got a virus which messes up the screen, meaning shows a pattern of my screen warped and shrunk and this pattern covers the screen, then gets a blue screen in dos, and lastly shuts off the computer a few seconds after. This shut-down is similar to for example, pulling the plug, then when I try to turn on the computer, before it gets to windows, it repeatedly shuts down every time. Sometimes when I get to windows it will not stay very long, or at least long enough for me to do a virus scan. I am sure this is a new virus. TO EVERYONE WHO THINKS I HAVE A POWER SUPPLY PROBLEM BECAUSE ITS SUMMER: I tried taking out my hard drive, removing the cables, then i turned on my computer without a hard drive on, it stayed on for several hours, and then i shut it down by pressing the button. I tried to delete partitions and make new ones,

I have noticed that Webroot Community site is displayed on my Android phone (in Opera mobile) in the full interface instead of mobile. Something had to be changed on your end because I have set the mobile view as default in Opera mobile browser and I was viewing the site in mobile interface until Friday or Saturday (sorry but I cannot recall exactly, I have been on visit in my friend's wine cellars). I cleared cache, temps etc. but to no avail. Everytime I go on the Community it is displayed in the full. Before that, the mobile view was always showed.
I have been getting Red dotted lines on my computer screen using the latest version of Firefox. (Win XP. SP-3). This only happens using FF. IE-8 works fine. Fresh reinstall FF doesn't help. Tried to Google this, can't find any answers. The lines appear and disappear. Got a good screen shot on the Webroot Forum, but it happens on any website. Anyone know what's causing this?

[b]WPC 2013[/b] The Windows 8.1 Preview is barely two weeks old, but Microsoft's Windows boss Tami Reller says the final version of the update will be ready to ship to manufacturers in just a few more weeks' time. Speaking at Redmond's annual Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC) in Houston, Texas on Monday, Reller [url=http://blogs.windows.com/windows/b/bloggingwindows/archive/2013/07/08/windows-at-wpc-2013.aspx]announced[/url] that the RTM version of Windows 8.1 would be made available to Microsoft's OEM partners in "late August." That release schedule should give OEMs plenty of opportunity to ready devices to ship with Windows 8.1 preinstalled in time for the holidays, Reller said. Microsoft made the Windows 8.1 Preview [url=http://www.theregister.co.uk/2013/06/26/microsoft_build_wednesday_keynote/]available[/url] as a free download during its annual Build conference, which took place from June 26 to 28 in San Francisco.

Microsoft is pulling the plug on MSN TV, a service formerly known as WebTV, as Apple ramps up its set-top box efforts. The pioneering service, one of the first to offer Internet access via television sets, will shut down September 30, Microsoft revealed in an e-mail to subscribers and an [url=http://www.msntv.com/msntv2/ClosureFAQ.asp]FAQ posted to its Web site[/url]. WebTV, which was founded by Web entrepreneur Steve Perlman in 1996, was [url=http://news.cnet.com/Microsoft-WebTV-deal-cleared/2100-1033_3-202038.html]acquired by Microsoft for $425 million[/url] in 1997. WebTV offered television-based e-mail and Web browsing via wireless keyboards but struggled to gain traction with consumers. Microsoft rebranded the service as MSN TV in 2001 to accelerate integration with products such as MSN Messenger and MSN Hotmail. The software giant even offered the interactive service for free to new MSN online service, but it has largely taken a backseat to the company's focus on the&
[b]THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION[/b] has agreed to hand down tougher sentences to those convicted of cyber crimes. The European Commission has been investigating the varying sentences that can be imposed on those convicted of cyber crimes among the 28 member states of the European Union. Now the commission has agreed upon tougher sentences and proposed new laws such as an "illegal interception" law. According to the commission directive, criminal penalties are set at a minimum of two years. The European Commission also said that instigating, aiding and abetting any cyber crime offences can also be penalised. The commission made specific reference to botnet owners, saying that when a signficant number of systems have been affected by an attack, there will be a minimum three year prison term upon conviction, and when a botnet causes "serious damage" or is deployed against critical infrastructure, the sentence will be increased to five years.

Electronic mail is generally known as email or e-mail and it is a way of exchanging digital messages from one computer network to another. Email was invented by Raymond Samuel Tomlinson in late 1971s on ARPANET network. He was born in 1941 at Amsterdam, New York and completed his graduation from Rensselear Polytechnic Institute. Ray Tomlinson is a computer engineer by profession. The first email sent by Tomlison was between two computers placed side by side. These two computers were connected using the ARPANET network. Originally the transmission of email from one computer to another computer was done directly. Both computers had to be online at the same time for instant messaging. Present day computers use email servers and these email servers forward, accept, store and deliver messages. Users need not be online simultaneously and have to be connected only for a brief period of time to the email server, for the duration it takes for sending or receiving messages. source: [url=h
"Tech, I'd like to introduce you to Fashion...Fashion this is Tech". As speculation continues about Apple getting into the wearable computing business, numerous reports (like this [url=http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2421349,00.asp]PC Mag story[/url]) confirm that the world's most valuable tech company has hired YSL CEO Paul Deneve, luring him away from his post in one of the world's most famous fashion houses to take on a 'Special Projects' role. And while the seemingly unlikely partnership may see strange to some, Deneve is actually quite the Apple vet-in fact, he served as the manager of sales and marketing for them in the 90's in Europe. If anything, this move adds more fuel to the iWatch-is-imminent fire. "...But if reports mentioning the "special projects" nature of Deneve's assignment are accurate, his mission will likely be far more interesting than simply shepherding the growth of Apple's retail operation. Deneve's unique mix of Apple experience and fashion
