    Help Please. Click on anything from an Icon and it opens Twice ( 2 Windows of Internet Explorer open or 2 WORD documents open etc.). Also, when you click on START or Favorites or File, the Pull Down Window flashes OPEN then in a Blink it is gone. So I have to click on the tab again and again until it OPENS and remains Open. I have, in the last 2 days, Done all of the WINDOWS XP UPDATES, Upgraded from IE6 to IE7 and uninstalled AVG 7.5 and Adaware, then installed the MacAfee Suite from Comcast.com. However, the Opening DOUBLE of everything was occuring before I did these updates. It has been occurring for about the last 1 1/2 weeks (some friends who lived here and used this computer no-longer lives here (and they departed on non-friendly terms; I was not in this house at the time they were here (gone on a trip), so I do not know if they may have done something to the computer [the computer, however, is running slow; most things take noticably more time to open than they did when I was living at this house 2 months ago).

    I did all of these updates because I was having installation issues with the PLAYER from Gametap.com. (Could not get the player to start up). I worked on that problem for 3 days (many hours wasted). It seems GameTap has updated their Server in the last month ... and that , I believe, is where the problem with starting up the GameTap Player is coming from, after doing all that I have done and spending many hours on the phone with Tech Support of both Comcast and GameTap. For now, my son will play games from Yahoo or MSN or Comcast. The Players from these site start up without a problem and my son plays his games without a problem.

    Thank You,

    Ed

    Go into control panel and mouse/peripherals and check actions as well as speed.

    Hi,

    Just off the top of my head, have you tried adjusting the double click speed, or any settings, of the mouse?

    Open the Control Panel, and after you are done turning the air blue....Open> Mouse and if the Double-click speed is adjusted way over to the Fastsetting, slide it back to about the middle and OK that.

    Try the double click to open a document or whatever gave you trouble...still the same?

    ***Should also check what actions the mouse does:


    Start> click My Computer> Tools > click Folder Options in the drop down list.....

    **make sure the mark is into "Double click to open" etc. and OK it. ((You can use the keyboard to "click open" things...and to move around, & you may find that easier until you get this problem fixed....

    Enter key pressed once, is the same as a left click when the dialog box, or item, to be clicked is in focus or...active ....like an OK or Cancel button would be, as it sits there and is the next action to do....I know you know what I'm talking about so don't just sit there>> fix something!

    Let me know if those settings are all OK but things still do not work. In that case, if you have not already, it is time to try out a new or used mouse .... Got a spare?

    Byteman,

    Thank You so much ! ! !

    i feel foolish that I didn't even think of the mouse; such a simple adjustment was all that was needed. PROBLEM SOLVED!

    The mouse "double click" setting was on the 6th line. I moved it back to the 4th line, Applied it .......... and ...... no more problem. This adjustment fixed both of my problems: A) everything that was opening up twice now opens once (as it normally would); and
    B) the TAB pull down windows that just FLASHED open then disappeared. Now the pull down window PULLS DOWN AND REMAINS OPEN ! ! ! !


    Thank You ! ! ! I'm making a Donation to show my appreciation. Thank You.

    By the way. Is there a software program, like PC Pitstop, that is Free or has a Trial Period that you know of (..one that is somewhat dependable) that I could use until I can get PC Pitstop?

    Again Thank You! :) :)

    Hi Ed,


    I am not familiar with PC Pitstop Optimizer, but I used to always check each computer I worked on with their website scans, both for malware and security settings, hard drive and memory tests and so on.... I haven't used the site in several years, though, and none of their tools.

    Are you looking for spyware removal software?

    Are there problems that you think optimizing software will correct?

    It's rare that an Optomizing utility actually does all that much to improve performance.

    Byteman,

    I want to speed up this computer. Having only increased RAM in the past (256 to 512MB), I did not find that it really made the computer operate all that much faster. This computer is running noticably slower when you double click GO or OPEN or START (software programs and websites alike all take longer to open; even email takes longer to open). I have run all the TOOLS in System Tools as well as McAfee Virus Suite. The computer is "alright; meaning it does work) but the lag or hang time before the program your started is actually on the screen is definitely noticable or obvious.

    Ed

    p.s. I did run a HijackThis log yesterday, just in case it was requested. I don't

    Hi, If you want to, post a brand new Hijackthis log right here and I will check it....

    (The last of your reply is missing....repost anything you might need to)

    Hijackthis directions, latest version, etc:

    go to Click here to download HJTsetup.exe
    • Click "Download the Hijackthis Installer" link in blue.
    • Save HJTsetup.exe to your desktop.
    • Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
    • By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
    • Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Additional Tasks dialogue.
    • Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
    • Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
    • At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
    • Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then save the log and then the log will open in Notepad.
    • Don't use the Analyse This button, its findings are dangerous if misinterpreted
    • Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
    • Paste the log in your next reply.
    • DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.
    _ _ _
    Please also do this:
    • Open Hijack This and click on the "Open the Misc Tools section" button.
    • Click on the "Open Uninstall Manager" button.
    • Click the "Save List" button. After you click the "Save List" button, you will be asked where to save the file. Pick a place to save it then the list should open in notepad.
    • Copy and paste that list here in your reply

    Hi-

    There is a Printable Version button up under the Thread Tools drop down menu that will let you print a nice text version of these instructions.
    Alternate way to save directions:Open Notepad> Copy and Paste any text you wish into Notepad, and Save the file as something you will recognize like TSGhelp.txt and save it onto your desktop.

    [​IMG] Your Java is out of date. Older versions have vulnerabilities that malware can use to infect your system. Please follow these steps to remove older version of Java components and upgrade the application. Beware it is NOT supported for use in 9x or ME and probably will not install in those systems

    Upgrading Java:
    • Download the latest version of Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 Update 5.
    • Scroll down to where it says "The J2SE Runtime Environment (JRE) allows end-users to run Java applications".
      *It's the Fourth download button on the right
    • Click the "Download" button to the right.
    • Check the box that says: "Accept License Agreement".
    • The page will refresh.
    • Click on the link to download Windows Offline Installation[/b] with or without Multi-language and save to your desktop.
    • After the file is downloaded , to install Java:
    • Close any programs you may have running - especially your web browser.
    • Go to Start > Control Panel, double-click on Add/Remove programs and remove all older versions of Java.
    • (Yours to uninstall are)
      J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 10
      J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 11
      Java(TM) 6 Update 2
      Java(TM) 6 Update 3
      Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment 6 Update 1
    • Check any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE or J2SE) in the name-start with the older version 5's first then ver. 6 Update 1, then do 2, lastly Update 3
    • Click the Remove or Change/Remove button.
    • Repeat as many times as necessary to remove each Java version.
    • Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed.
    • Then from your desktop double-click on the download to install the new downloaded version for Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment 6 Update 5


    The rest looks OK, no obvious malware there.

    How do you like the Optimizer from PCPitstop?
