thank u tom. i have not restarted, but i am hoping it worked removing daemon tools. where do these daemon tools come from. are they cookies attached to certain sites u open, and i open very little. in any case, i thank
you for your advice and hoped it worked. best wishes for a happy and healthy 2012
yes, i do have a further problem. when i got rid of the daemon things, my computer is not working properly. it has to do with screen resolution. and when i try to change it to a higher digit, it just doesn't work. i am
sending this to you via initially a blind site and now the screen is just not the same and have no idea of how to get it back as it was before. unfortunately, i did not have a backup disk, so basically i am working in the blind site. if u can give some
advice, as to what i should do, i would appreciate it. i even did system restore and yet it brings me back to blind window. it's workable, but much slower than when i had it before. best wishes, tom
hi gabriel, thanks for your advice. i followed your instruction but there was no CHKUPD listed under scheduled task. unless they use a different name or long code. i went through some of the long codes and opened them, but could not find CHKUPD.
and even though i had my computer totally tuned last evening, they could not find it either. oh well, i will just keep having to click cancel and it disappears immediately. have a nice day. tom
You have to read the (full name) of the file. See if the file looks something like this, or similar: (ProgramUpdateCheck Trusted Software ApS C:\Program Files (x86)\File Type Assistant\TSAssist.exe /chkupd).
Please reply, I'll help you solve this problem once and for all!
