  1. Hi, Please, note this, if having problems with PC Pitstop OverDrive not starting due to ActiveX not loading. This has now come very essential with the Windows 10 half-yearly upgrades, as they do not anymore issue this folder! For the case ActiveX not coming up starting loading at all, it maybe due to, that there is no Windows\Downloaded Program Files folder existing, so, please -> Add it there, lol ... Now go on happy with testing! In case there may be some other problem, please check my earlier post on this -> Best regards, PeteVfi
  2. Hi, After from time to time facing and got struggling with the problem with OverDrive, not loading the ActiveX and got stuck on the first blank test window on ajaxscan, here you have some hints to be checked: -> Internet Explorer 11 -> Tools -> ActiveX-filtering -> Off -> Internet Settings -> General -> Browsing History -> Delete (with the first and last setting ticked -> Off(?)) -> Security -> Internet -> Default (Medium) -> Trusted Sites -> www pcpitstop.com -> Add If the above do not solve the problem, you may try also these hints: -> Tools -> Add-ons -> Critical ones -> Off (e.g. pop-up blockers etc.) -> Internet Settings -> General -> Browsing History -> Settings -> Show Objects -> Delete old PC Pitstop Components -> Security -> Internet -> Modified -> Allow ActiveX-filtering -> Off -> Run malware checking on ActiveX -> Off -> Enable pop-up blocking -> Off (seen somewhere lower there) -> Advanced Options -> Set options to default -> Set IE11 into default settings Addition 18.09.2017: -> Disable Virus Scanner and/or Firewall Addition 26.04.2018: For the case ActiveX not coming up for loading at all, it maybe due to, that there is no Windows\Downloaded Program Files folder existing, so, please, -> Add it there, lol ... Good luck on troubleshooting! Best regards, PeteVfi
  3. Hi! OK, I have been checking the tests several times during the last weeks, both straight and debugged, and noted that - on Win2000Pro the stucking will be realized on Checking Hardware despite which machine (?) - on WinXPPro/Home the stucking was realized on Checking Upload Speed, but surprise, not anymore since a few days ... thanks for some corrective action/update (?) Best regards, Pete V.
  4. Hi! Yes, I did manage the above WinXPPro case OK by testing it on Debug mode with Upload Speed test disabled. But ... testing another Win2000Pro machine behind this same ADSL-router/line/ISP the test did stuck already on Checking Hardware ... What's the problem, here or there, or where ... OK, tomorrow I'll test some machines behind some other routers/ISP's. Best regards, Pete V.
  5. Hi! Yes, have been facing the same problem since some last 12 hours ... Test is stuck on Checking Disk Usage window, but probably has been passing already that face, because on the lower status indicator Checking Ping Time is already passed and upon stucking it's on Checking Upload Speed phase. Anyway, the Firewall is opened for 64.29.201.21 both ways/all ports and for ping.exe, and, this same problem occurs also without Firewall active. A prompt action on this will be appreciated. Best regards, Pete V.

    ActiveX is not supported?

    Hi! (This is a copy of my reply to another same topic thread, with findings before the newest MS Updates.) Thank you so much for you all contributing this ActiveX problem troubleshooting, after a few weeks research and headache my cases are now cleared! The cure for the Win98SE cases was the urlmonfx.exe fix found at http://erpman1.tripod.com/iewmpupd.html, thanks for erpman1! This proved the problem to be hiding on the bad urlmon.dll v1537 incl. in the KB912812 March 2006 update, and get cured by backing to the previous v1526 from the KB905915 Oct 2005 update. Anyway, note this is an unofficial patch and hopefully not causing problem somewhere else. The cure for the Win2000Pro case was too simple and stupid, just first testing the Disk Health test alone and through this getting the required ActiveX loaded, so, what may be the secret on this, not loading through the Full Test path ... Anyway, the urlmonfx.exe didn't work on Win2000Pro due to different urlmon.dll v1525. But, sorry, I do not have any special hint for WinXP as not lately had any problem with this on them ... Best regards, Pete V.

Btw, all my some 30 WinXP support case machines are SP2's, and I have not been facing any general type SP2 problems with them, so, I wouldn't even accept SP1 level anymore ... And, as an answer to the System Restore point question, the number of the points is regulated by the total space given for the System Restore on the Control Panel System definitions.

    ActiveX

    Hi! Yes, I have lately also been facing problems with the PC Pitstop Full Tets ActiveX not loading ... and now even on a fourth machine ... There must be something common with these cases! But, who could/should check them, I think the PC Pitstop people ... Now, during this week I have been checking/testing some 10-12 different hints/tricks, but nothing seems to help! Best regards, Pete V.

    ActiveX is not supported?

    Hi! For your info, just checking this same problem and having comments on another thread for this. I do not yet have any idea of what is causing this, neither any cure, just some 6-7 hints for trial, which have not been leading to anything on this, so far, which you could begin to check for yourself ... Best regards, Pete V.
  13. Hi! Sorry, I didn't mention previously, but I did have the AntiVirus ActiveX's working normally, but not the FullTest ActiveX, isn't it funny ... So, the problem might reside on the ActiveX itself, or maybe not ... but it's strange, that I have been getting the WinXPSP2 error message also exactly same on Win98SE and Win2000ProSP4 pointing up to the toolbar direction, where isn't nothing for them! Anyway, so many actions on the IE60SP1 settings/security etc. and other Windows things/settings tried and nothing helps, so, it refers the problem to be somewhere else! Best regards, Pete V.
  14. Hi! Me too, exactly the same problem ... but, these latest cases on Win98SE and Win2000Pro, and previously some WinXPPro case! all these with updated IE6.0SP1 ... I have been checking all possible hints, WinUpdates/IESettings/KB912812/BlockerDeletions/AdministratorRights/Firewalls/TIFDeletions/DPFDeletions/SoftwareDistributionDownloadDeletions/IE60SP1ReinstallOnThePrevious etc. can't even remember them all, but nothing seems to help! There must still be some super-hiding nasty maybe even minor thing ... I would be very grateful on any new hints to check. Best regards, Pete V.
  15. Hi! I did buy PC Pitstop Optimizer v1.0 for a few weeks ago. Most of the optimizations have been seeming to have some positive effect, but the TCP/IP value optimizations seem somehow doubtful in my eyes, i.e. mostly the Receiving Window values, with the given values 65392 for dial-up and 255552 for DSL (Safe). I have been testing my 512kbps DSL line with PC Pitstop with several different RCW values and got the best result, about 415kbps, with the value 20888, and quite much worse results with some different values, not to mention the high 255552 value. This same applies to dial-up for the best value 8576 or some other, with the 65392 coming far behind ... The MTU values 576 for dial-up and 1492 for all DSL seems OK, but for the 128 TTL or the 10/20 connection values I do not have any comments yet. So, now my question is, is it true that the generally said somehow wrong RCW value do affect quite much negatively to the TCP/IP traffic throughput, or, do the PC Pitstop download test just give somehow wrong picture of it ... Thanks for any comments for this. Best regards, Pete V.
