Task Manager cpu 50%-a svchost.exe -ended process:Desktop flickered&Task Bar went from Blue & 2 lines to Yellow 1 line

Windows Forum - Answered Threads, Windows XP - December 9, 2017 - 9:50am

Computer was loading things too slowly, went to Task Manager:  cpu was at 50%-a svchost.exe System was using 50% - with NOTHING ELSE showing such usage - all apps, including Firefox NOT running.

. . . Ended process: While taking note of my actions, about 10 or so seconds later the Desktop flickered & the Task Bar went from Blue & 2 lines to Yellow & 1 line.  I locked the Task Bar.

. . . . I shutdown, rebooted, and the 50% usage was again back, sucking up cpu resources.  Repeated the above and same things happened, even with Task Bar locked..

. . . . . Shutdown again and same thing.  I have now left the task bar Yellow, unlocked and reset to 2 lines and re-locked.

Is it likely that I am infected and have some malicious process is launching when I re-boot?

logon screen and shutdown Issue

Windows Forum - Answered Threads, Windows XP - December 9, 2017 - 7:30am

My PC is running Windows XP.

I have downloaded themes for my windows and it was really nice which gave me the visual style of windows vista, 7, 10 and mac OSX theme and much more but after updating my system with windows update my PC now cant change theme so any custom theme i use my PC turn to classic style also all my themes have a black screen preview so there is no correct preview in Properties so I decided to install a remix pack to transform and repair visual style issue which come up with a new bigger problem, after installation successful the preview of visual style has been repaired so now i can change my visual style correctly but I got a bigger problems.

the transformation package has changed the boot screen, logon screen, icons, the system UI at all so I got a bigger icons (windows 10 like) which is really really nice and much more but like I said I got a bigger problem.

I receive at logon phase this message (Value creation failed at line 79) and after pressing enter i got the same message more times but after pressing enter several times i got a classical windows logon screen but the PC can load successfully but I can't shutdown my PC whatever i gave it the order to shutdown it do nothing, I cant restart too so /i used command Prompt to shutdown but I receive  the same error message (value creation failed at line 79) and hide behind wallpaper so PC get lagged and stop responding to any order so  I can never shutdown my PC but only if I ejected the power plug>

Note: if i Uninstall the transformation package everything get back correctly but i still cant change my visual style so I tried another transformation pack and got the same error with different error line (value creation failed at line 25) also got themes preview fixed again.

so it seems a windows problem how can I get back the ability to change my visual style without installing a transformation pack.

Realtek Wifi Adapter on XP computer

Windows Forum - Answered Threads, Windows XP - December 5, 2017 - 8:34pm

I have two computers for which I bought the same wifi adapters.  Realtek Mini USB Wirless Adapter  5.8 GHz+2.4GHz Dual Band 802.11ac 433/150 Mbps

I installed the one for my Windows 10 computer with no hitches.  Works perfectly.  Followed the steps for XP install, and all looked well until I tried to get the Utility program to run. The program appeared, but then kept restarting endlessly.  I have tried uninstalling, rebooting, using all the usual troubleshooting programs.  Nothing.

Checking the Device Manager, it shows the Realtek installed. It also shows a network connection "28" as being disabled.  When the computer boots, it lights the USB adapter and eventually shows a balloon that it has found several wifi connections available.  Clicking the balloon brings up the WIn XP network window that shows no connections. So the USB is working, but has no way to connect with the XP

The computer is an old Gateway under Windows XP.  I kept it in service since there are several programs I use a lot that will not run on the Win 10.  I need to use the wireless option since I will be moving the computers to a new space that will be difficult to hardwire to the modem. I cannot explain why the Realtek utility keeps restarting and loops endlessly.

Any help appreciated. Thanks.

How to disable TLS 1.0 / enable TLS 1.1 on POSReady 2009

Windows Forum - Answered Threads, Windows XP - December 5, 2017 - 10:33am
I have a POSReady 2009 system with KB 4019276 to provide TLS 1.1/1.2 support.
I have added the DisabledByDefault and Enabled values to the registry, as documented in the KB, for TLS 1.1/1.2 client and server keys so I can control what should work.
This hotfix, unfortunately, does not update the Control Panel Internet Options user interface to add tick boxes so only TLS 1.0 shows there.

When I use IE8 to browse https://www.howsmyssl.com, website says client using TLS 1.0.
If I disable TLS 1.0, I cannot connect at all.
[[Google Chrome shows TLS 1.2 but then that's not using SCHANNEL]]

What do I need to do so IE8 shows as using TLS 1.2?

Have applied all WindowsUpdate updates.
