okay, so last week I got the Sasser thing. McAfee sorta caught it. Now I tried to download a screen saver program I subscribe to. I downloaded the executable from the web, double-clicked on it and...nothing. So after a dozen or so times of downloading with the same (non) result, I open my windows task manager and find each time I try to open the .exe file I am running ntvdm.exe. From what I've been able to ascertain, this will run a 16-bit program. This particular .exe file is a 32 bit application. Can someone tell me what is going on and why I can't execute this file?
Oh yeah, I am running windows xp pro with a wireless network, tons of ram, tons of disk space. A related issue(perhaps), my internet access through IE6 is dog slow(and I pay a pretty penny for broadband) and when I turn my machine off there is an end program message that says do I want to cancel tfswctrl.exe. Is this stuff related to the Sasser thing?
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?
