I bought this computer about 8 months ago. Pretty kickass Compaq laptop...but I'm not a computerface so I have no idea why everytime I close out a browser window, it brings up an error. I actually have one right now in the tool bar and it says:

"OSCM3 MFC application has stopped working

Windows can check online for a solution to the program.

- Check online for a solution and close the program
- Close the program

V view problem details"

OSCM3 isn't my browser, but this is same prompt that comes up when I close my browser, a tab inside my browser, or a pop-up for free penis enlargement (on NBC.com!). I can post the problem details on if anyone can help me with it.


For those of you who don't give a crap about the post above, please enter "YAR" in Bold Size 7 New Courier font below.

I have used Vista before, I don't see where all the complaining is coming from. Its not the OS's fault you downloaded too much porn.

Am I the only person who "YAR"'d?

I was going to, but I figured it may be a trap of some kind. They're always out to get me with those things.
#11
Ive probably have the same Compaq. You can fix these things you know...
Anyways, its a little soon still to get Vista in my opinion. GO XP

I really couldn't have said it better myself.
I don't get the all the Vista hate. I've used it for months and have yet to encounter a single problem.

edit: I use my computer for browsing the internet, playing computer games and music.

Well, it has its flaws. Especially on laptops it seems. But its nothing you cant fix with a few patches and stuff.

I only find problems with older versions of xtrap and GG, but that is fixed in most games in CB so...
And problems with my SE pc suite, besides that, no problems at all.

Fair enough, but these are updates that are available to the public. It's not like he can't get the latest patches; Vista actually gets them for you. Obviously I'm not saying this to argue with you, I'm just pointing out the problems with the TS's post.

Service Pack 1
Mozilla Firefox
Spybot S&D

Download and install those.

It's not Vista's fault you download and install random crap containing spyware. And SP1 will fix most problems that are Vista's fault.

Ok, OSCM3.exe is for the Sprint PCS Connection Manager. Im guessing you have sprint, (or maybe im wrong) Check the file for a virus, and then try and reinstall your Sprint software.

I love vista, its a good OS, i use it, but i still prefer the simplicity of xp.
And yeah, vista is good if you turn off a few things and get a few things, like i said, its not Microsoft fault you suck.

This is what happens when I try to download anything from the posted links. When the download happens, it pops up a little browser window and closes it, thus making the error happen all over again.

I haven't downloaded anything other than the temporary internet files that I erase once a week and my porno watching is minimal because I have sex living with me in my home. Any other suggestions or can the "YAR" begin?

Ahh, I loved when I screwed up my computer until it turned my HP into a Compaq, Dell, HP. HP hardware, Dell opening screen, and Compaq factory stuff I put on it. Long story. Back when I had XP professional.

I use Vista on my Dad's laptop.
I like it actually, some of the features are quite good and visually it's pretty nice.
I've never had any problems with it.
From what I've seen ,most problems with it come from
1. People not having any idea what they are doing
2. People running it on **** computers
3. People deliberately trying to find issues with it.

I thought that too. I have one of those wireless USB sticks that gives me the internet anywhere. I've heard that people can get in on your connection or something...but I don't know how reliable that statement is.

Its true, but its not that important. Just make it secure if youre worried about that.
