My pc was running very slowly . . . i.e., it took about 10 minutes to reboot. Someone told me to Start > Run > cmd > ipconfig /flushdns.
It worked beautifully. My pc speed is more than twice as fast as it was before.
However, I read this article:
and I decided to permanently turn off NDIS Computer Management > Services > Wireless Zero Configuration > Disable
And that was a mistake. Everytime I opened a page, I received a message that NDIS was receiving something and asked if I wanted it to continue. I checked the box "do not ask again" but it continued to pop up for every page I visited.
So I decided to enable it again, which was easy to do . . . Computer Management > Services > Wireless Zero Configuration > Automatic. The only problem is that in Start > Run > msconfig > Services > Wireless Zero Configuration is "Stopped" so that I continue to get the messages. When I try to click on it to set it up as "Running," nothing happens. I can't change the setting.
My pc is my personal pc. Nobody uses it but me so I'm the Administrator and this is an Administrator setting. I seem to not be able to change Administrator settings, even if I want to Schedule a program to run, i.e, Ad-Aware. When I try, I receive a message that asks me for my passwowrd and since I don't have or need a password, I receive a message that essentially says that since I'm not the Administrator, the scheduled program may not run, and it doesn't.
When I boot my pc, it boots automatically to my desktop. I tried logging off from my desktop as Owner but there's no Administrator icon, just my one icon, named "Owner."
So I have two questions:
What settings do I need to change so that my pc will recognize me as the Administrator?
How do I change Start > Run > msconfig > Services > Wireless Zero Configuration from "Stopped" to "Running?"
