Need free version 1.1 of Startup Cop.

by Harv / March 20, 2004 12:45 PM PST

Some nice guy gave me the website of this version last year, but when I reformatted my OS, it got lost. Anyone else have this version saved for a rainy day?
PC Magazine charges to use their website for downloads.
Okay, I'm cheap. Happy

Marianna, I think you had a substitute for this utility. Would appreciate the info again. BTW, is there any way to search for a specific topic in CNET forum like before?

Marianna, you're a peach! I did a search on Google and came up empty. I've had a terrible time with my pc this week. It locked up and couldn't be unfrozen even by using CTRL+ALT+DEL, so I rebooted it and lost WinXP.
Brought it to a repair shop and had him backup the files I needed (my CD reader wasn't working or maybe it was me?)plus had a clean version of Home Edition installed (instead of my previous UPGRADE version). A guy from the local cable company came yesterday to install high speed cable connection, but something is wrong with the cable wiring in the main box outside.

Thanks for bringing a little smile Happy to my face.

sorry to hear you had so much problems ! Why did your computer behave the way it did?? Any idea what happened??

Hope you get your highspeed fixed - why do you think it is the cable wiring in the main box outside?

About a year ago, I booted up my pc and was unable to get into Windows. The computer repairman discovered upon examination that some of the files on my hard disk were scrambled or missing, so he had to reformat it.

The latest problem came about, while I doing some work in a couple of open windows. Suddenly, the screen froze and I could not restore it even by pressing ctrl+alt+del. Maybe I going too fast between windows and did not let one process finish before initiating another one? Anyway, the screen went black, after I rebooted. I tried using a rescue disk to reboot and an error message came up telling me to remove the disk or CD and press any key to continue. When I did, I only got a blank screen. I was able to get into Safe Mode, but when I clicked on and entered my OS, WinXP Home Edition, the prompt told me it was not available. Later, I found out from the repairman my hard drive showed 37GB free space and everything, including WinXP, had disappeared. He was just as perplexed as I was as to how this happened. Owning a computer is getting to be quite an expensive proposition! Do you have any thoughts about what I might be doing wrong to experience two computer breakdowns in such a short period of time?

Regarding the high speed cable connection, the installer came to the conclusion that the problem for their inablility to connect me with high speed cable is at the main box outside my home, and not at their main power station. Otherwise, the neighboring service area would be experiencing the same inconnectivity problem. Since I've been using dialup modem for over three years, I think I can tough it out a few more days.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
