No Network Access – Avast To Blame

No Network Access – Avast To Blame

So, a little while ago, I had a big networking problem with my computer. At first, I had no idea what the cause was, and how to fix it,So here's how to solve that. Here’s the problem & here’s the solution.
Symptoms: Not able to connect to Internet/network, including using Wi-Fi, Ethernet cable and an external modem, or can only access HTTPS websites
May have already tried: Re-installing drivers, calling your ISP to check for outages or correct settings, tried using a static IP to rule out dodgy router not assigning IPsHave you installed, uninstalled, updated or just used avast recently? Then I think I know the cause of your problem.Now, I’m not sure how I ended up solving this, either by trial and error, or maybe something I read on a forum, so props to the source and anyone else who found it. The cause of your problem is avast Antivirus has created phantom clones of your network modules, so that, I assume, it can channel all traffic through them and vet it before it goes anywhere. In theory, this idea is good, because it means that avast can protect you from any threats before they get to you, and spot any suspicious behavior coming from any programs on your computer. The problem occurs when it breaks down. If you uninstall avast, it doesn't seem to be able to remove the phantoms and so, it’s like all your traffic in & out is being sent to an unmanned cash register at the supermarket(and it’s not self-serve either!). They’re ready to go, but they've got no idea what they’re doing!

So, how do you find out if this is your problem? First you have to open Device Manager, which can be found in the Control Panel. Then expand the label “Network Adapters”. If you see two of any of the adaptors, then I think you’ve found your problem. If you have a closer look, you notice that one of the two have avast mentioned in its name. It’ll say something like “Atheros AR8152/8158 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller (NDIS 6.20) – avast! Free Antivirus”. What you need to do is right-click on that one, and chooses uninstall. It’ll ask you if you’re sure, and you are! Just make sure you don’t delete the other one too. Only delete the ones that say avast. Even if you’re planning on reinstalling avast, you need to do this, because when it happened to me, I reinstalled avast and it didn’t reconnect with the clones, but instead said that there was something wrong with the network shield.
Like I said before, you don’t have to have uninstalled avast to get this problem. I know of people who have had this problem after updating it or installing it for the first time.
I have always thought avast was pretty great. It’s been much more reliable and fully featured than other antiviruses that we’ve paid for. But in the last little while, I have found it to have become increasingly invasive, painful to use, and monetised. It’s constantly trying to find ways of making money out of you, not just by upgrading your coverage. It’s starting to really annoy me, and problems like this only add to the bad taste it’s leaving me with.

Fixing the “There is no disk in the drive” Error

Fixing the “There is no disk in the drive” Error

Have you ever had the “There is no disk in the drive” error message pop up when using an add-on product that works with QuickBooks? It’s annoying and it can make you worry that something isn’t working right. I consider this to be a bug in QuickBooks, not the add-on products, but there are several ways to fix it.

There is no disk in the drive

What Causes the “There is no disk in the drive” Error

This actually can pop up in a number of situations, and if you do a Google search on the phrase you’ll see a lot of confusing information on this. It isn’t limited to just QuickBooks installations.
In a very general sense it is due to there being a removable drive in your system that doesn’t have media in the drive. Remember the old Iomega Zip drives? These kinds of drives would make the error pop up often. Nowadays we don’t see Zip drives that often, but any of the following can make the error pop up (this is not an exhaustive list):
  • Floppy disk drives: Do you still have some? I do…
  • Removable hard disk drives: These have multiple kinds of interfaces, USB as well as others, and they all can cause the problem.
  • USB Multi-Card Readers: I don’t think of those when I thing of removable drives, but they ARE. Many consumer level PC’s have these included, even if you don’t use them.
Some process in an application in your computer is doing a check on the drives in the system, and in some situations this is going to cause Windows to pop up this error message if there isn’t something in that drive.
You may notice that I’m being a bit vague here – there are factors involved that I haven’t worked out. It doesn’t always happen. I have a program in my main computer system (several, actually) that will cause this error to pop up, but sometimes it won’t happen for days at a time. Then it starts up. I haven’t changed the media in my removable drives, I haven’t changed the configuration of my system – it just happens sometimes and not others. As a software developer, this is frustrating because it makes it hard to determine if I’ve found a way to fix the problem. I make a change – the problem doesn’t appear – but is that because I fixed it or because it just decided to not show up today?
You can see which drive is the one that is causing the problem, if you wish. If you look at the sample error message above, you’ll see that it says “\Device\Harddisk2\DR3”. That is the drive number that has the problem. Run yourComputer Management utility (in Administrative Tools with Windows 7, it may exist in other places in other versions of Windows) and select Disk Management. you can scroll through the list of drives (it may take awhile to populate the list) and see which one is the drive. It helps to identify them if you can insert media into all your removable devices. In my screen shot, the drive I’m looking for is #3 (DR3). You can see in this list that my F: drive is #3.
Windows Computer Management

What Is The Connection To QuickBooks?

I usually see this in connection with QuickBooks whenever I’m running certain QBSDK based add-on products. If you ask Intuit Support they’ll just tell you that they don’t support add-on programs, which is no help. If you talk to many add-on developers they’ll often not be able to help, because this problem won’t show up reliably on their own test and development systems.
It is my opinion that this is a bug in Intuit’s SDK, which is most commonly used by desktop products working with QuickBooks. I can demonstrate, in my own add-on software, that the error pops up just when I’m making certain calls to connect to the QuickBooks database. Call the Intuit function, error pops up. Unfortunately, since this error is so dependent on machine configuration, and because Intuit pays very little attention to problems like this in the SDK, I don’t believe that Intuit will be fixing this problem.

Is This a Big Problem?

In general – no. It is only a problem if you are running a program that NEEDS something in that drive, such as when you are doing backups.
The main issue is that it is annoying (it can pop up multiple times in a row, once for each “drive”), and that it makes people worry that there is something really wrong in their computer or with the software that is running.
Recently I’ve been testing a number of QuickBooks SDK based products that have their own “sync engine” that periodically sends information out to the cloud – and each time they make a connection this error was popping up. Since these are “background” programs that should be running unattended, having this error pop up repeatedly while I’m in the middle of working with some OTHER program becomes a major hassle.

Here’s How to Fix It

There are a number of ways that this can be resolved. I’ll go through several of them.

Keep Media in the Drive

Well, of course! If there is something in the drive all the time, no error! Simplest resolution, but it might not be practical. If you have one of those multi-card readers then this can be a pain to implement.

Make Sure Drive C Isn’t Removable

We don’t see this as often these days, but if your C: drive is a removable drive, you’ll get this problem often. If you can reconfigure your system so that this isn’t the case, that often resolves the problem.

Disable Unused Drives

Not my favorite option, but if you have a drive that you NEVER use, and you don’t want to take the trouble to physically remove it, then you can disable it in your Computer Management utility. I’ve seen people do this if they have multi-card readers in an office system where they’ll never use the reader.

Disable The Message with a Registry Hack

I generally don’t like to provide information on altering your Windows Registry, but it is an option that you’ll find in several Microsoft support forums. this turns off the error message – I’ve not found a situation where this would cause a problem, and if there IS  a problem then you can reverse this fix.
If you aren’t familiar with editing the Windows Registry, don’t do this yourself! Find someone who is familiar with the process AND who is reliable.
  1. Start regedit. If you don’t know how to do this, you probably shouldn’t be trying this!
  2. Got to the very top of the registry and select Computer.
  3. From the regedit menu, select File and then Export. This allows you to save a copy of the registry before you make any changes. Save this in a safe place that you can find easily if you need to restore it later (if you goof and clobber your registry).
  4. Locate the following registry entry:Computer\HKEY_LOCAL\MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Windows
    Windows Registry key to fix No Disk in Drive error
  5. Select ErrorMode. Double-click on it to edit the value, change the value to 2
  6. Exit regedit
This changes Windows so that it won’t generate this error message. Again, don’t do this if you aren’t comfortable with editing the Windows registry.

Update The Addon Software

Even though the bug is in Intuit’s SDK code, most add-on developers can resolve this. A program can make some Windows function calls (“SetError()”) that will tell Windows to not display that error dialog, by resetting the ErrorMode similar to what is done in the registry fix (there are several options). I’ve done this solution, and it works very well.

AVG Internet Security 2015 (x86 x64) Full Version + Serial

AVG logo
What is AVG Internet Security 2015

AVG Internet Security 2015 and AVG Internet Security 2013 Business Edition provide robust online protection for both home and business use. The products themselves benefit from a dedicated team of Internet security specialists and a worldwide user community, who help AVG to constantly advance its feature sets and product strength.

Engineered to work at a level appropriate to differing users’ needs, each of these products are suited for both home and office use. Their core role is to render viruses, spam, spyware and Trojans helpless while making identity theft, web exploits, drive-by phishing and rootkits a distant memory.

AVG Internet Security 2015 protects users while they are surfing the web and communicating on Instant Messenger (IM) services, while simultaneously providing security to Local Area Networks (if they exist) against hazardous system attacks.

With multi-layered (but tightly integrated) technologies, AVG users will have greater peace of mind when it comes to identity theft, viruses, or risks associated with visiting harmful websites. The technology proposition here is the opportunity to shop, bank and transact with confidence, block spammers and scammers, download/share files and chat safely. Users can also enjoy peace of mind when networking on Social Networks.

AVG 2015 Internet Security is built with some completely new features since our 2011 product release. New in 2015 is AVGAccelerator, which helps speed up Internet experiences by accelerating downloads and Flash videos. Also new is AVG Advisor which provides assistance and recommendations in case of detected memory problems caused by browser sessions where tabs have been open for a long time.

AVG 2015 uses the power of the company’s massive global user community to make the Internet safer for users everywhere. AVG’s ”People-Powered Protection” approach is foundational to AVG’s security software offering; by harnessing the power of the online community, AVG increases its ability to predict, identify and thwart attacks before they become widespread. Because of this, the software can isolate and address malicious activity more rapidly than ever before.

AVG Detection Methods
The key to AVG’s efficiency in detecting infected files and exploits is the technology’s multiple layers of protection. Files are pre-processed - and those deemed unnecessary for virus analysis are excluded to enable faster scanning.

Signature-based detection

This attempts to match files to known virus signatures - a sequence of bytes known to be characteristic of a specific virus. Detailed analysis is then performed to identify the exact infection.

Polymorphic-based detection

A common method for detecting known viruses, this is used to determine new variants of recognized viruses, even if the new variant behaves differently. This method is particularly effective in the detection of macro viruses and script viruses.

Heuristic-based analysis

The third layer for detecting viruses is heuristic analysis, which looks at the way software behaves in order to identify whether or not it is malicious. This allows it to detect a virus, which is not included in the internal virus database.

Behavior-based analysis

This is the fourth layer for detecting viruses. This patent-pending technology looks at how software behaves to determine hostile file behavior and preventing their execution.

New Features

AVG Internet Security 2015 is the only security product that includes AVG Accelerator - this product component is designed to enhance, rather than compromise (by slowing a PC down), the content that users will typically spend time using online.

AVG Advisor

AVG Advisor is a new proactive service that monitors the computer and advises the user with solutions for various problems the computer has. Research indicates that users often have browsers open for many hours (as many as 15-24 hours at a time) without knowing that these applications are constantly consuming the available memory of the PC.
Over time, available memory is reduced to a low level and this causes a computer to slow down.
Advises “Overuse of memory” by Internet browsers
(Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer only.)
Prompts “overuse of memory” by Internet browsers
(Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer only.)
Can be manually turned off.
Managed via a link from the pro-active pop-up, which opens advanced settings in tray notification.

AVG Accelerator

AVG Accelerator maximizes computer connectivity to deliver content faster.
Less time is spent waiting for videos and other content-rich files to download.
Supports Flash Videos and some other content-rich files – (additional target file types will be added in subsequent releases).
On by default, setting can be managed in advanced settings.

AVG Turbo Scan

Scans are faster than ever with Internet Security 2015. We have introduced a new feature, AVG Turbo Scan, which dramatically shortens security-scanning times thanks to a smarter scanning sequence that follows the order in which files are saved to the hard drive.

File Reputation

The new AVG client will check with our cloud service and report prevalence of certain files on user’s computers. We’ll then use this information to improve product’s detection capabilities (heuristics, behavioural detection etc). Customers need to opt into our product improvement program in order for us to access their data.

Boot Accelerator

Prioritizes boot sequence in order to achieve faster startup.

Enhanced Features

Footprint & performance is improved throughout.
Fewer processes, less memory usage, faster boot time, the AVG 2015 technology proposition is focused on actually speeding up your PC as it protects.
Web security is improved
Enhances the detection of evasive web threats.
User Interface (UI) reorganized for a more intuitive look and feel.
Several UI components have been grouped together to reduce number of components in overview.
There is also the addition of default settings for advanced the "Identity Protection settings" dialogue.
AVG has fixed notification about logged in users in the restart request dialogue and the "Ignore the state of this component" option is now only available from advanced settings.
Anti-Rootkit performance is now better so that detection of malware hidden deep in the OS can be found -- as well as added support for anti-rootkit exceptions.

Other New Features

Added reset button for Anti-Spam statistics.
Extended statistics of SharePoint document scanner component.
Extended statistics of VSAPI and antivirus transport agents components.
Added the option to switch off scan of outbound emails in VSAPI plug-in.

Keeping Updated

It is vital to keep your antivirus software up to date. AVG 2015 makes it easier than ever to keep up-to-date and protected against the latest threats via manual and automated processes.

Update files are available even when a large number of requests to download updates are sent to AVG’s servers. That’s becauseAVG distributes update files using a robust worldwide server network service.

Main features include:
Small update files (the size is typically only tens of KB)
Rare requirements to restart computers after updates
Updates once per day
Possibility to schedule or manually perform an update
Proxy server authentication support
AVG update emails allow registered users to receive the latest update information
Update files are available even during periods of high download demand

How to take care of your Computer

Image result for computer images

Preemptive Care

1. Browse the Internet responsibly, visiting only websites you trust and downloading files and programs only from reliable distributors.

2. Keep your computer area clean -- don't eating, drink or smoke in the same place you use the computer. Cigarette smoke can clog your computer hardware. In the case of Apple computers, it can even void your warranties.

3.Keep your operating system, anti-virus software, firewall, spyware and other security programs up to date, as new viruses and security leaks appear all the time.

4.Keep your warranty information handy and up-to-date so that if anything out of your control happens to damage your computer, you can get help from the manufacturer or distributor.

Security Software

1. Install an antivirus program to protect your computer from viruses and other threats. There are several free antivirus programs available, including AVG, Avast and Avira. While you can test each antivirus program to find the one you like best, you should never run two at the same time as they'll conflict with one another.

2. Install a free spyware program such as Windows Defender or Spybot Search & Destroy.

3. Run your security software, including running antivirus and spyware scans, at least once a week to catch threats early. Your antivirus software may offer the option to scan automatically at a scheduled hour -- for example, when you're not normally on your computer.

Cleaning Your Hardware

1. Shut down your computer and disconnect it from its power source, then open your computer's case to access the components inside. Some cases require you use a screwdriver. Check your computer's warranty to ensure that opening the case will not void your warranty.

2. Use a Q-tip or tweezers to remove dust particles from around your computer's components. Don't touch any components with your fingers.

3. Use a can of compressed air to blow hard-to-reach dust and particles out of the case. Gently blast air into the fans and any open CD, DVD and I/O ports. Keep the can's nozzle at least four inches away from the delicate components to avoid causing damage.

4. Replace the cover securely on the case after the inside is clean and dry.
