After finally having got this goddamned MDG piece o' crap up and running after my brother paid MDG CDN$138.00, and it came back the same way, I've re-installed Windows XP. I've downloaded all of the Windows Updates.

After re-boot though, Internet Explorer cannot connect to ANY web site because this Send Error Report keeps popping up and whether you send the report or not, the browser closes.

I've tried downloading Firefox three times and I am told it is corrupt and will not install.

We've been battling this for two weeks.

Thanks, Greg

I downloaded Avast Anti-vir Free edition and ran it.
Now I get " Virus scanner has encountered a problem and needs to close down.
I am right back where I started. Frickin, frackin fat cow son of a gooby....

Sorry about your situation then, interesting but could we have some details
for example:
- what computer
- what opperating system(home or pro)
- what age
- how is it connected to the Internet
- why, if the computer comes back in the same way that you have sent it , do you not have any redress with the place that said they fixed it

everyday is a gift

Clearly you have a problem that will not be fixed by merely reinstalling Windows. There must be something else going on. The next step, I would think, is to test the hardware. The two most obvious first choices would be the hard drive and the memory.

Go to the manufacturer's website and download their disk utility to check the hard drive out:

  • Fujitsu "FJDT" DOWNLOAD Works with fujitsu models only.
  • Hitachi / IBM - DFT "Drive Fitness Test" DOWNLOAD Works with all manufacturers.
  • Maxtor "Powermax" DOWNLOAD Works with all manufacturers.
  • Samsung "hutil" DOWNLOAD Compatability unknown.
  • Seagate "Seatools" DOWNLOAD Works with Seagate drives only.
  • Toshiba - N/A There are no tools available for Toshiba, but you may be able to use IBM or Maxtor's.
  • Western Digital "Data Lifeguard" DOWNLOAD Works with WD drives only.

If you care to test the memory:

Microsoft Memory Diagnostic
