Help me fix my PC!!!!!! <_< (reward)

Post by Wert Ac on Mon Feb 01, 2010 6:18 pm

Okay, I offer something in exchange for if someone here can help me fix this problem. I will make an attempt to play the game "Fester's Quest" on the NES. It sucks balls: http://www.gametrailers.com/video/angry-video-screwattack/25046

Basically, shockwave flasheps freezing in all three of the web browsers I use (Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Google Chrome). Switching them doesn't help. It happens when I'm watching any video, and s randomly. It only happens when the video is trying to start, then FAILS. I ran a full system scan with Norton 360 (the version of Norton that DOESN'T suck), and I also tried system restore, but my antivirus prevented some stuff from working...I don't know how to disable it. If some help with that might work. Anyway, the error most commonly occurs when I'm in a windows live messenger conversation. Why? How the hell should I know. I'm using Windows 7, if that makes a difference.

If any help works, I will record my gameplay to fester's quest and/or my reaction upon request...Only because I seriously doubt anyone can help me! This is the most BS problem I've ever had! Even worse then when I kept getting an error that said "...press ok to continue, or cancel to end" and gave the options of "yes" or "no"!

i'll ask my dad in a sec wert after this one halo 3 match he is a computer engineer

ok ive asked him he says "sounds like malware, have you tried scanning with malwarebytes anti malware program, if system restore isnt working or wont work this is a sure sign that something has had a go at the registry, if you go to www.techspot.com and go to the virus section there is a set of instructions on how to diagnose and check for malware,

I know you say you use norton (any version sucks) but this is crap at dealing with malware as it is always disabled by the programs."

my dad wrote this on his laptop exact words

Okay, I'll give a shot at some of the suggested stuff there later.
(Link for me to refer back to: http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic58138.html)

But its the antivirus thats preventing system restore from working. I can't figure out how to disable it from doing that. I think that would be a more seamless solution to my problem =/ .

wert you got ripped off....badly!

NORTON are a bunch of con men in black suits

there no better then the common thief

they make a really half assed program and sell it for 10x whats its true value is...

but if you really want to save it, make a backup of it and its serial key and save it onto a memory card or flash drive

then uninstall it, get avast, follow instructions on that website and problem solved

I've had it literally all my life, and never bothered to play it. I have like 10 NES games and I've only played about half of 'em. After seeing AVGN's reviews though, I think there are ones that I really shouldn't play.

Well it just happened again. You jinxed it <_< . A friend of mine just advised me to replace adobe shockwave with Macromedia flash before I try anything more complicated.

Well my external mouse just stopped working...I think its connected to this, considering that it happened simultaneously with a shockwave plugin crash. I guess the driver for the mouse has been corrupted. I may have to manually fix that, even if I can resolve this issue <_< . Anyway, I'm going to try that malware thing now. It seems to be my last option before...formatting...
