Action Center Security

I was a windows xp user until my computer was destroyed by a trojan virus (that mimicked windows. )  This left me feeling a bit paranoid about downloads. Now i'm using a computer with windows 7 and am having a hard time understanding the security features. Ction center notified me that intel active management technology needs a driver for my chipset. It suggests that i download and install a driver from the dell inc. Website.

My virus protection program shows no threat, so i download the driver, but then my computer makes a click sound and it asks me if i want to allow the following program from an unknown publisher to make changes to my computer. Why would windows suggest that i download something from an unknown publisher? And why do i get the same notice when i try to open my image editing program, which i installed directly from the program's original cd?If someone would help me understand this security feature, i would appreciate it!

Action Center False Issues

Currently my windows action center is showing my virus protection and firewall to be turned off which are both false. I run norton 2010 and it's working fine. When i open the action center and click "turn on now" it opens norton but doesn't remove the issue from the action center.

Everything is up to date and i didn't have this problem initially so i'm presuming it's an issue with a recent install. I installed adobe cs4 on a trial a couple of days ago but after a restart the problem wasn't there. When i turned my system on last night it appeared and i can't get resolve it.

Unknown Solution In Action Center

My action center keeps telling me that there's a solution for a problem it encountered. When i try to read the solution, it loads for a while, then it tells me that the solution could not be downloaded with missing internet connection being the most likely cause. This cause guess is obviously wrong because i am online. Yet, the action center only names the most likely cause and absolutely fails in further troubleshooting, something it was created for.

Anyway, can anyone tell me how where to get further information on the problem and solution?

Changing Action Of Media Center Button Of Keyboard

Changing the action of my "start windows media center" button of my keyboard - without drivers! I am using windows 7 on my htpc (home theater pc, if someone isn't familiar with the terminology :)) and i love it so far! However, there is one thing which i'm not in love width - and that's the windows media center.

My keyboard (deltaco tb-220) has a special button from which i can start the wmc, but i'd rather use xbmc (xbox media center). The problem is that there aren't any software from which i can change the function of the special keys!

So, my question is: does anyone know a way to change the "default" media center from wmc to something else? For example with htpc remote controls or keyboards like mine and similar? Perhaps through editing something in the registry?

How To Find Media Center?

I am asking this on behalf of my friend who came to me for help because he is hardly computer literate. Home premium win 7. About 4 months old. He said at one time he was playing around with windows media center, thinking that it was media player. Today he realizes that he cannot find wmc any more. I told him about vista method of locating ehshell.exe.

Start > search box, enter ehome > enter > scroll the list for it.

It did not work for him. Entering ehome in search box did not bring up c:windowsehomewindow. Can someone please tell me how to call up wmc?

Media Center Cannot Find Music

I have 100+ cd's stored as wav files under my music. They were ripped using exact audio copy and accuraterip.

Error - Failed To Find Driver File Path

I receive the error "failed to find driver file path. Error=ffffffffx[gle=0x00000003]" when trying to update from vista to windows 7. The upgrade gets to the 'updating files and settings' phase, then ends up rolling back to vista. Before this last install that failed i've updated all of my drivers, removed my antivirus software, used the mouse that came with my system rather than my wireless mouse, and unplugged all usb devices-basically everything i've been told to try.

The last thing i was told was that i'll have to just do a clean install. I'm very disappointed since one of the reasons i decided to buy windows 7 was that i would be able to upgrade and keep all of my settings.

Error - Device Driver Software Was Not Successfully Installed

Error device driver software was not successfully installed. This device cannot start (code 10) for cddvd drive. I am running windows 7 on a hp pavilion a1600n and sometime over the last month the dvd/cd drive stopped recognizing dvd and cds. It is opening and closing and spinning the disk when i put them in the drive, just not recognizing anything beyond that.

The device status reads this device cannot start (code10). From what i could find online code 10 was a hardware general purpose error. I have tried switching out for another dvd/cd drive and even switched out the cable inside to see if that was the error, it was not.

When i plugged the second dvd/cd drive in it tried to locate the drivers online and and informed me that device driver software was not successfully installed. I have been trying to find some sort of solution online to no avail.

Aiptek Dv4500 Cannot Find Driver

My aiptek dv4500 cannot be used in "live mode" with windows 7. I used it last night with a computer running windows xp, so it is not a fault with the camera. I can transfer files from the camera to the computer (video, pictures) but i cannot use the built in webcam with windows 7, it will not detect the driver. I downloaded the driver from the manufacturer's website, and also from the cd that came with the camera, and still, i cannot use it. The windows 7 compatibility website says that the dv4500 isfully compatible with windows 7. How can i get my webcam working?

Cannot Find Driver For Playstation 2 Eyetoy Namtai

Windows 7 cannot find the driver files for the playstation 2 eyetoy namtai, even though i'm using the same files. I'm thinking that i'll need to find a way to install these items manually without the help of windows 7's installation wizard. Does anyone know how to do this or if anyone has any better ideas i'm open to them! I'm running at 64-bit, this is probably going to make a big difference.

Driver Software Installation

I have a problem with windows driver installation. My notebook has a bluetooth and is already installed with proper driver. Every time i boot the machine the "driver software installation" starts and finalize with saying that device driver was not successfully installed. Furthermore the detail describe this is caused by bluetooth peripheral device. Actually i tried to connect my bluetooth phone before but did not succeed. Every time i reboot the same thing happens.

Now, i have disabled windows update, i have disabled the devices and also tried the device installation settings in the control panel etc. But nothing stops this "driver software installation" from starting at the next boot. Is there any way to disable the "driver software installation" from automatically running again and again?

S it was doing so my computer crashed and a big blue screen appeared advising me of this fact and then the computer shut down
Have uploaded google chrome unistalled the driver software done a systems restore to an earlier point in time and then tried again.

Brother Hl-2140 - Windows Can't Find A Suitable Driver

I have a brother hl-2140 connected to my windows vista-32 business pc via usb. Prints great. It is shared. I have a second windows vista-32 business pc and installed the shared printer and it prints fine. I have a laptop with windows 7-64 home premium and i'm trying to install the shared printer. I have downloaded all current drivers via brother's website and used both disks that came with the printer (all os's on one disk and windows 7 as a separate disk). I've tried installing all versions of drivers to be sure. I've plugged the printer directly into the laptop and the printer prints fine.

When trying to install the shared printer, i physically point the laptop to the correct *. Inf file, but it always says that "windows could not find a suitable driver. " Just as a side note, brother states on their site that the hl-2140 is windows 7 compatible. I have seen many posts that contains 7 and xp issues. But i have not found any post for 7-64 to vista-32 sharing.

Cannot Find .inf Printer Driver For Canon Pixma Ip4000

I have a laptop running windows 7 (64-bit machine) that i want to print from. The laptop is wireless on a home network. The desktop is wireless as well and is running windows xp. The desktop has a canon pixma ip4000 printer hooked up with a parallel cable. I have installed the latest xp drivers for the printer on the desktop. The laptop can connect directly to the printer with a usb cable and the drivers will download automatically and it will print fine. However, i cannot connect this printer using the wireless system.

I can go on the laptop to the home network and navigate to the printer and try to install. It does an automatic search and says it cannot find the proper drivers. I can browse to the install file on my desktop, but it is an .exe file and not . Inf. I have run the .exe file and it installs too, but the printer installer on the laptop will not let me by the add . Inf screen to finish installing a wireless printer. Any suggestions?
