  1. Thanks for the help , I went ahead and installed updates , pretty simple really . However I didn't uninstall beforehand , just updated . Do you have to uninstal the the older program before you get the latest update ? Also I noticed Adobe , Flash and Java have files installed on both on the the WOWx64 and the X86 Program files , why is this?
  2. Hey guys , my Kaspersky anti virus has found the following vulnerabilities (All critically very dangerous ) : vulnerability http www.viruslist.com/en/ advisories/34012: -C:\program files \X86 \common files \ adobe\ version 1.0 AIR - C:\Windows\sysWOW64\Macromed\Flash\Flash9f\ocx -C:\program files (x86)\Common files\Adobe AIR\Versions\1.0\Resources\\NPSWF32.dll vulnerability http www.viruslist.com/en/ advisories/34551: C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6\bin\java.exe C:Windows\SysWOW64\java.exe Now for each vulnerability what can I do to make it not vulnerable ?
  3. Tried the firmware , was working for a while but I am back to where I was at the start of this topic issue . my computer now no longer reads blank discs , I even re-installed the firmware a second time , still no joy Any suggestions ? Seems weird that the firmware fixed this issue for a while and the drive stopped working again all of a sudden
  4. Its my DVD /CD Drive : HL-DT-ST DVDRRW GWA-4161B I can play Audio CD'S even audio CD-Rr and DVD's . I have allways used SOny DVD-R's 1x -16x an had seemd to be working fine until recently . When I put it the blank media any burning program just seems to freeze (Not Responding) . When I insert blank media while doulbe clicking the DVD drive icon under my computer it just seems to freeze (not Responding)
  5. Well Worked it out . I managed to uninstall, disconnect , start up , shut down then reconnected and started up again but still the computer doesnot recognise blank media
  6. Ok no idea how! But talk me through it . 1st thingis first How do I uninstall the drive ?
  7. Guys Sorry to bother you but ......... I have tried different discs and slower burning speeds but, the computer is still not recognising blank media , regardless of the software ( I tried it all ) . I am begining to believe I need a new DVD- Rw drive However I had this trouble before and reinstalling KIS and Windows SP3 seemed to rectify the issue for a while . Any Ideas?
  8. Woops I reinstalled KIS before SP3 was installed does this order matter ?
  9. OK here's the link : http://gsi.kaspersky.fr/lire.php?hl=en&amp...1c18e45cd5d05cb Whats up with my PC guys?
  10. Wha tis a GSI log ? Where do I find my GSI log and where do I post it , sorry?
  11. While I have KIS switched on ( with default settings ) , Windows Media Player seems to malfuntion when burning . In other words Windows Media player will only successfully burn when I have KIS turnt off or paused Is there a reason why KIS seems to restrict programs especially in this case the Winows media player program ?
  12. Please excuse my inferior computer knowlage but how can one learn what to do when faced with Kaspersky prompting for action on processes For example I was given a prompt box which kinda looked like this : Process C:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exe Block Terminate Skip or Add to trusted Zone The question is this : With every process we are faced with (the Example being a windows process) How do we know which are genuine or worth blocking ? Personally I guessed and ended up blocking the process , it is now displayed as an event as below: 23/04/2008 16:47:01 Process C:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exe (PID: 1248): attempt to embed itself into another process was blocked. Would blocking this process cause a computer to malfuntion or not work properly? If so how do we undo these decisions on processes ?
