I am trying to connect my external modem to my computer. I took AOl security center off to use AVG anti virus and Sygate firewall. I am now having trouble reconnecting to my modem. I keep getting a message that says:

SysFader: iexplore.exe-Application Error

The instructionat"0x1002d7db"referenced memory at "0x1002d7db". The memory could not be "read"
Click on O.K. to terminate the program.

When I do this my Internet explorer closes. I have do numerous system restores to earlier days, but I am still left with the same problem

From what I have learned that is an obsolete Nivida Utility (SysFader.exe). I recommend to go to the web site of the company that made your card and download fresh drivers. Unzip them into a folder on your computer. Then go to the Device Manager and remove the video adapter from the list. When you boot windows it will prompt you to install the device. Select the option that allows you to manually install the software. Select "Have Disk" and point it to the folder containing the drivers.

I am using Telstra Big pond and each time I put the installation disc in and try to activate the modem it tells me to delete the previous version. I have tried to delete it to no avail.

In the control panel, click on "add/remove hardware" and use the wizard to uninstall the modem.

Reboot with the modem not connected and follow the modem manufacturer's instructions to install it.

I have tried to remove the old Telstra Big Pond Program but, it says:

this patch could not be opened. Verify that the patch exists and that you can not access it, or contact the aplication vendor to verify that it is a valid Windows Installer patch package.

I also looked for the file in Program Files but it is not there.
When I put the Big Pond software disc in, ittells me to first disable my firewall.

I was running AOL Security center with Mcafee anti virus and Firewall.
I was able to get rid of both programs but the Windows security center says that Atleast one ofthe firewals installed on this computer is Currently on.

I have turned the windows firewall off but it still shows up in the security center as being on.

I am not able to go online with this computer to attempt to fix this problem. What if I saved all my programs to disc then did a full sytem recovery?

You had Sygate, McAffee and Windows firewall at various times.

Are you certain that you uninstalled both Sygate and McAffee and the Windows firewall is turned off?

go to run, type in msconfig.

Look through the programs in startup and make sure that Sygate or McAffee is not still showing up there. If it is, remove it from the start menu.

You should be able to connect to a broadband modem without proprietal software.

In the control panel click Network and Dialup connections then "make a new connection" and see if you can set up the lan for the broadband modem.
