Preferred Solution: executing a .js file on startup?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: executing a .js file on startup?

nvm

i actually figured out how to make a .js file execute on startup by putting it in the startup file under 'all programs' (duh). i didnt want to make an html page tho because i dont want a window opening, just the pop-up greeting. now i'm having problems with my coding. it's wanting me to define the object, and i dont know how. i was using the document object and idk if thats even the right one. i'll make a new post under the programs section. thatnks!

Was given an older ACER PC for grandsons.  Was told it was reformatted to remove drive contents (but know little else and can't contact givers).Problem:-Not executing startup disk -Only screen at startup is ACER bios v2.0, good memory check (48Kb Memory, 64KB SMRAM), then flashing cursor; no promptHere are specifics:-ACER Aspire 2239 (91.AA772.GT7)-Drive was formatted to remove drive contents.-Do not have restoration software for system-Am trying to install Windows 98SE but will not execute startup disk (Do not know what OS was on system before, but going w/ Win98 because of RAM/disk size and have original CD)-Entered BIOS w/ CTRL/Alt/ESC and drives, boot order fine (even has correct date/time)-jumper on Western Digital WD64AA is showing 'master' but is only fixed drive in system-if change WD64AA jumper, get an 'invalid drive' error-Doesn't appear that POST is completing (only screen at startup is ACER bios v2.0, good memory check, then flashing cursor; no prompt)-a: lights up, but doesn't execute startup disk-Have tried several startup disks

Answer:Not executing startup disk

Just an update......Left running and eventually a 'Serial port conflict, equipment config' error displayed.  Changed serial port settings, and now will eventually go through POST and display config menu at top of screen with an 'illegal system disk, replace disk and press any key' error. (Takes maybe 30 minutes from power on to do this.  Sits with same screen as before and flashing cursor during the wait)The a: lights every so often and the 'illegal system disk' error redisplays.Possible the disk is needing to be partitioned, waiting for disk files?  Or could the a: be bad even if light comes on?

I'm running Windows XP Home and I need to run my DOS development system for MS Fortran 5.1 that ran fine on my Windows 98SE system. I copied the Win98 files to locations in the WinXP system that made the file paths the same as the Win98 paths, and copied the old desktop shortcut PIF to my Windows XP desktop. The PIF specifies a .bat file that sets paths and environment variables. Executing the shortcut caused the fortran system to run, but the batch file apparantly did not.

Trying to better define the problem, I wrote a small file c:\Temp\zzz.bat that uses the echo statement to generate a beep, a 1-line message, and ends with the pause statement. I made a new desktop shortcut to a small DOS file manager programlist.com, then modified the PIF: on the Program tab, in the Batch file window, I entered "c:\Temp\zzz.bat" and made no other changes. The shortcut caused list.com to run fine, but no beep, no message, no pause: apparantly zzz.bat was not being executed.

So why does the batch file not execute????

Answer:PIF batch file not executing.

Hi, and welcome to TSF.
I'm not very familiar with this, but here goes....
Dos support was fairly native in 98, but not so in XP. In order to run DOS based applications requiring the DOS command set, and subsequently have dos applications called to run, you should try this within a command shell. Try opening a shell first, click the "start" button, select run, and type "command". Then start the application in the shell.

Answer:problem in executing .exe file from cd Drive

Hi

What security applications do you have installed as I remember an issue like this on a PC with a 3rd party firewall installed and a rule causing this, weird as it seems you'd wonder why the firewall would cause this. As you have had this issue for 2 mounths what was it you installed if anything around that time?

Have you scanned for malware?

If you right click one of those .exe's and choose properties and is Unblock on the general tab? if so try that.

If you uninstall your 3rd party software firewall and then reboot and try is this happing still?

msiexec continues to execute with each startup looking for some file (does not inform  what file), and displays annoying popups and at times overlays current window.  In addition, when I attempt to install software, it tells me that windows installer is already running and it must finish prior to the requested install.
 
I modified the configuration to no execute windows installer on startup but then if I attempt to do a software installation, it tells me the service is not running.
 
I re-registered wsiexec.exe and also removed it and downloaded a new copy and installed it.

I have a situation where when I open Excel by double-clicking on a file, a new instance of Excel is opened. I am currently running Excel 2007. When I do this, my PMW does not open with that file.

My work-around is to open Excel from the start menu (where the PMW does open) and then drag/drop file onto the program. It also works to open file using the open file menu in Excel, but this takes a bit longer when accessing files on the network. Any thoughts?

I have a Lenovo Yoga 3 ultrabook. I have made a bootable Windows 8.1 USB flash drive. I would like to know what is the difference between an installation from the 'setup.exe' file in the USB drive's folder, & a regular clean boot from the flash drive? Thanks for any suggestions.

Answer:Difference between clean USB boot & executing setup.exe file?

Booting the computer with USB or DVD install media will perform a so called clean install. You have to then reinstall all your software, Windows will be as if it was first time ever you have started that PC, new and fresh. If the computer already contained an older Windows installation, its files will be moved to folder Windows.old, you can then copy your personal files and folders from there to your new user folders.

Windows 10 - Clean Install - Windows 10 Forums
Starting the setup from existing installation by launching the setup.exe from USB or DVD install media performs an in-place upgrade installation. All your installed software will be kept, as well as your personal files, and Windows will be upgraded.

When the version of Windows on USB / DVD is the same you have already installed and installation is started by launching setup.exe from USB / DVD, it's called a repair installation which is used to fix various Windows issues; all your data and software will remain intact but Windows system files will be overwritten.

Hi!
 
i've carelessly executed .vbs file and today I noticed that secure internet connection doesn't work in firefox and dropbox. Also, steam exhibited some difficulties in logging in (but that could be just steam). Chrome is working normally.
 
Other symptoms are that windows firewall and windows defender are turned off when I start the computer. I can turn the firewall on, but defender is blocked by group rule (I managed to override this by deleting the registry key). I ran windows defender but it didn't find anything. There was also an error while trying to install optional windows update.
 
Here is some info that seems related to my case: http://www.malware-traffic-analysis.net/2016/07/25/index4.html
 
Just like in this example, malware was in .vbs file and I have SYS>mycomputername<.exe showing in task manager. If I shut down this process I'm unable to access internet anymore (something about proxy not being set up properly).
 
This exe runs from this folder: c:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Temp\Java

I have a U300 PSU3DA which I changed from Vista to XP.
This is because my main use of the computer will be for navigation (boat) and I was told most navigation programs will run better with XP. I have hardly nothing on my laptop so far, and already the system seems to be slow and freezing too often.

My question now is about the program C-Maps which I've just installed and which won't open. It keeps saying "Eorror: cannot open attribute file".

What does that mean? I have desinstall and reinstall the program, and it keeps coming up with this message.
I had a look around the device manager and the only thing that seems wrong is the PCI memory controller.
I did a bit of a search on this and it seems that this driver is not necessary for XP? Is that so?

Could it be a cause of the C-Maps program not working?

Thanks in advance.

Answer:Satellite U300 PSU3DA: error: cannot open attribute file executing C-Maps

Where did you read this info?
I don?t know if the driver is necessary but you get all drivers on the Toshiba website.

For your problem with C-Maps, I think the best is you contact the C-Maps support. Here it is a forum for Toshiba laptops.

I'm currently using an applet to run a jar file named Loader.jar to run another jar file named ERO.jar, which is obfuscated. The loader loads fine, but it does not pop out the GUI as it's supposed to. Here's the HTML part of the loading:
Code:

</CENTER>
</BODY>
</HTML>

When I normally run the ERO jar file, by using a batch file or double clicking it, it pops up a GUI I made to log in to a server. Although, when I run the HTML file to load the Loader.jar file, it runs as it should for the most part, but it won't pop up the GUI as it should. Here's a pic of it at the moment:

I'm a 10-year user of Win98se. My income tax software no longer runs on 98 so I bought a Compaq Presario F700 with Vista Home Premium. H&R Block's TaxCut ran just fine on it.

Now I'm trying to learn Vista and it is frustrating. I badly need help from Vista experts. Although my initial impression of Vista was strongly negative, I've spent at least 50 hours trying to understand it. Many more hours will be needed.

I have lots of questions, but lets start with just two:

1) Windows Defender won't let me run a program that doesn't have what it considers proper credentials. Even when I turn Defender off, some component of Vista sends up that "Blocked" message and refuses to allow the program to run. I am the administrator for my PC and I want to be able to say, "This program is perfectly safe. Run it and don't give me any backtalk!" Apparently that's not possible.

These programs (about 6 of them) are utilities I have used for years. They do run on Vista but only if I go thru a gazillion overrides.

HOW CAN I FORCE VISTA (AND DEFENDER) TO ACCEPT AND RUN THESE PROGRAMS?

2) I want to create a startup.bat file that is executed at boot time.

HOW DO I MODIFY SYSTEM CONFIGURATION STARTUP TO ADD A REFERENCE TO THIS NEW BATCH FILE?

Thank you in advance for your help.

I have a computer that is a drone specifically for an outside LED sign. This computer is designed to never shut off and doesn't have any other program on it besides Operating System and the sign software. I need to create a batch file that I can place in the "start-up" folder that will open the program (LEDStudio10) and open the file that I want to play. I have already tried multiple attempts and I was hoping someone out there in sevenforums world would be able to point me in the right direction.

Answer:batch file open file for program in the startup folder

Task Scheduler. Create a new/basic task. You can invoke your batch script there. This can occur after boot completes, after user logon, etc. You can set it to run daily weekly hourly, etc. You can even have it delay X (preseleted time amounts) minutes/hours after boot/logon if you want.

Question: .EXE not executing

Hi, I'm having a problem with specific .exe 's not executing at all/correctly.
Such .exe's such as Borderlands, (and other games) teamspeak3...
Other exe.'s work such as Iexplorer, firefox, steam, etc...
I've scanned with malware bytes, and nod32.
I've tried winXP DEP to allow the processes to execute but no luck.
Looking deeper, I opened up task manager and looked at the processes while I clicked the exe. Lets say for example: I click an exe called oreo.exe. I'll see oreo.exe in TaksManager's processes appear, then disappear.
Theres no error message or anything.

Question: EXEs not executing

Hi, I'm having a problem with specific .exe 's not executing at all/correctly.
Such .exe's such as Borderlands, (and other games) teamspeak3...
Other exe.'s work such as Iexplorer, firefox, steam, etc...
I've scanned with malware bytes, and nod32.
I've tried winXP DEP to allow the processes to execute but no luck.
Looking deeper, I opened up task manager and looked at the processes while I clicked the exe. Lets say for example: I click an exe called oreo.exe. I'll see oreo.exe in TaksManager's processes appear, then disappear.
Theres no error message or anything.

Hi Experts,

My winxp machine has strange problem. On login, it shows "Executing: C:\Windows\System32\wlnotify.dll..." This is very strange I suspect it is a spy or virus, could anyone give me some suggestion to nail it down?

More information about the situation:

1) this is a virtual machine (so that I can get the screenshot of login
2) My version is Chinese, so you see square box which means "Executing..."
3) This problem start to appear after I uninstall "Vista Transformation Pack", yesterday I reinstall it because I thought is it possible that uninstall VTP has left something in system that caused this? So interface you see looks like Vista login, but actually it is XP.

Thank you very much!

Sincerely,
Shannon

Running NT 4.0, IIS 4, SP6a.

When visitor attempts to execute an .asp file, the browser returns Error 500, Internal Server Error.

Directory has 'execute' priv.

Internet guest user acct has full access.

Simple test page is straight html, with NO asp variables, etc. Browser still returns server 500 error.

Several domains set up on the IIS server. I have a directory at "c:\webserver", under which I have a subdiretcories set up. Each sub is the "home" directory for a corresponding domain.

So, in IIS "c:\webserver\domainx" is the "home" directory for domainx.com. This directory is identified as a local path, not a virtual directory.

If the test file is renamed to blah.html from blah.asp, it works fine.

Any help greatly appreciated, this has been dragging on for months...

 

Answer:.ASP files not executing

I had this problem, and the only thing that worked was to do this: On the web site directory (and any other directories that this might also access), get properties, select the Home Directory tab, and set the Application Protection setting to Low (IIS Process). If this is an outside server, this wouldn't be a very good idea, but if it's just an intranet, go for it. Prior to doing this, I had all rights set up good to go, and it refused to cooperate. If nothing else, try this and see if it clears up.

Chris.

Question: Executing a macro

I need your expertise help once again. John Walkenback created a macro that does the same thing as a hyperlink (I call it the hyperlink macro)? The reason for using this macro was that the hyperlinks did not work properly on shared drives. The macro that John provided works great. I began to create buttons for the hyperlink macro. I created 100 buttons to find the 100 files. They all worked great.

When I copy sheet1 into sheet2 (I created a macro with your help that deletes all the buttons that I created in sheet1) and delete certain rows that I do not want any more, I copy the rows that I want to work with back to sheet1. The reason why I copy sheet2 back to sheet1 is complicated to explain but it is a necessity. Now all the buttons that I created for the hyperlinks in sheet1 are not where I want them to be. They are all over the place and on top of each other. I tried all the three options on the format properties of the buttons, but none of them work properly. So I deleted all the buttons on sheet1.

Next, I tried these Macros (see bottom of this page). I used the Ctrl+e to execute all of the 100 macros. Guess what?? The same workbook comes up for all of them. If you look at the 2 macros that I created, you would think that they would work, since I used an If statement condition. Both are executed with a Ctrl+e. But the same file keeps on coming up no matter what cell I select.

When attempting to execute malware on a High Sierra Mac, I receive the following message:

I have not been able to find a way to override this protection and would like to execute the sample.
 

Answer:Executing Malware on Mac

The malware is being blocked from executing by an OS X security feature named "Gatekeeper". Gatekeeper was introduced in OS X 10.9.

You can disable Gatekeeper from within System Preferences.
1. Go to System Preferences
2. Select Security & Privacy
3. Unlock with authentication to change the security settings
4. Switch the configuration for "Allow applications downloaded from" to 'Anywhere'
5. Re-lock the settings

You're responsible for your own environment so make sure this environment is not your genuine Host environment, and by executing the malware sample you're trying to experiment with the documents on the environment will become encrypted. The sample you're trying to experiment with is known for masking itself as an Adobe Photoshop or Microsoft Office hack-tool (aka. "crack") and is going through torrent websites, and will encrypt the documents on the environment when you open it up and attempt to work the fake hack-tool with it's UI.

I have several control panel items that do not open. I get a message indicating that they are looking for an associated program.

After some research I figured out how to create a shortcut that opens the control panel item (example:firewall.cpl) by using its canonical name, and its GUID. Example I created a shortcut for default items using "C:\Windows\explorer.exe shell:::{17cd9488-1228-4b2f-88ce-4298e93e0966}" as the target.

However, I really would like the control panel to work properly. I don't know how to move the shortcuts I have created for the *.cpl files that no longer work into control panel. Alternatively, I would like to know if there is a way I can automatically "refresh" my system (without having to reinstall Win 8) so the control panel items work properly.

Thanks.

Answer:*.cpl items not executing

Hello share666,

Downloading and merging the .reg file for the listed .cpl option in the tutorial below will restore the default associations for these, and hopefully fix this issue for you.

When I download files that contain viruses mostly from Limewire how do they infect my computer when I don't even execute them? :-? I understand that they would show up in my virus scans just for being there, but how do they execute themselves without me starting them? I ask this because I thought I was reasonably safe scanning all the files I downloaded before I ran them, but I downloaded a virus and prompty deleted it after discovering it, but it kept dumping me to the BSOD after a few minutes of starting Windows. The problem has since been fixed, but I am curious, and yes I know Limewire and other P2P networks are infested with this sort of stuff.

Our company has a DFS with about 20 servers. To my knowledge, there is no virus infection on any of the servers. However, there is one file share that the entire company has read access to. All the sudden there is an unusual EXE file sitting on this share. At the moment, nobody seems to know what the EXE file is and has left it on the share. What I am wondering, what happens if a single user executes this file and it is a virus? Would the virus most likely just infect their PC, or is it possible for the virus to infect all the servers in the DFS?

All the computers and servers are running Symantec Endpoint Protection, so hopefully if the file is executed it will be picked up right away and deleted. But what is the likely hood that running this EXE file would infect more than just the PC it was run from?
 

Answer:Executing a Virus that is on a DFS Share?

Have you tried answering the question as to if it's a virus...scanning it, and getting a few other opinions by submitting it to jotti or virustotal so that a dozen or more scanners can check it?

Can it infect the workstation that runs it? Yes. Can it infect the server(s) and/or rest of the network...yes, depends what the virus is.

alright, I've had this problem for several months and I've decided I can no longer "just deal with it." I'm running windows xp home edition and certain programs (not all of them, always the same ones, though sometimes the problem "spreads" to other programs, will clarify) will not open. in most cases there is nothing to show that the program was even attempted to be run except that the hourglass icon appears next to my mouse cursor for a moment and then disappears. Two clarifications: one, I did not originally attempt to fix this issue because the programs affected were not of great importance to me, and two, I did not have an antivirus program installed until recently (and I DO have broadband and a household full of others who use this pc, though I am the primary user). Here's how things played out:

I was not able to execute any programs that were stored in my Program Files (x86) folder nor did my anti-virus start up (at the time it was Avira). Double-clicking, right-click and run, etc, etc. did not work. I would see the 'loading' cursor for a brief moment, but then nothing. No errors, no sounds, nada. I eventually solved it (somewhat of an accident. Trial and error for the win) by doing a System Restore.

However, it cost me my Avira anti-virus program. I had to delete it and re-install it, but when I tried to re-install, I got a message that it was already installed on my computer (even though I deleted everything, registry files and all). After several unsuccessful attempts to re-install Avira (even though it said it was installed successfully), I installed AVG on March 21.

That worked--until I powered on my computer when I got home (which was the same day I installed AVG, just at the end of the day). Same exact situation. Couldn't execute any programs from Program Files (x86) folder. Did another System Restore and I am back to square one.

Answer:Program Files (x86) not executing

Hi Tobias, Why not just save your data and fresh install? I read the forum and that was quite a list. I'd go for a wipe at this point.

Hi,
I have a Lenovo Ideapad 11S, and my OS is Windows 10. After using it for some time, suddenly all the executables (exes) stop working. Even the windows commands like reboot, task manager etc. dont start at all. The Windows menu continues to function, but on clicking the buttons nothing happens. The only thing i can do is a hard reboot. After the reboot, the problems go away for some time, and then reappear again.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Hi There

I'm not sure if this is possible or not. I have created a macro called "Macro1". Now I also created another macro called "Macro2". In "Macro2" I can call Macro1 by writing the code Application.Run "Macro1".

Say I write the words Macro1 in any cell in Sheet1. Say I write it in cell A1. Now I put the curser in cell B1. In "Macro2" I want to execute "Macro1" but differently from the conventional way as above. Here is the code that I used but it doesn't work.

Sub Macro2()
ActiveCell.select
Application.Run Macro:=ActiveCell.Offset(0, -1).Range("A1")

In this example the Active Cell is B1.

Do you see what I want to do? I want to execute the macro whose macro name is in Cell A1. The reason for the relative reference is that I do not want to tie the macro name to any particular cell. Is this possible or not?

Mario
 

Answer:Executing a macro in Excel

I don't now how to get the name of a macro from a cell, but you'll definitely need a Worksheet_Selection() for your Macro, so you need to put Macro 2 in the Sheet code (not a module) and change the name of it by using the dropdowns in the code window to get Worksheet_Selection

So I turned on my computer after waking up this morning and 10 seconds later it restarts on it's own. When it boots up again I run quick scans to see if there is anything and I find nothing. A couple hours go by, go to eat and come back to find a recording of someone talking through my headset. Now I know something is up and go through task manager to find ping.exe running at 500MB usage. So I close it and the recording stops.

I have a Dell laptop running Win XP which apparently does not run the autoexec.nt file when loading DOS applications. I run DOS programs on my other machines running XP, and this works fine: Any path statement or environment variables placed in autoexec.nt load properly.

On this machine the autoexec.nt file is completely ignored, although a basic PATH is loaded from somewhere.

If I check the path from the command window, the system-loaded path is: (C:\windows;C:\windows\system32;C:\windows\system32\wbem). Have I missed something??

Hey all, I'm having a problem I have never seen or heard of before...

A few months ago this started ocurring, and I've searched and searched the internet but could not find an answer. The problem is that if I click on any program file (***.exe) it will not run. For example, if I click on Windows Media Player.exe it will not run. But if I click on Song8.mp3, it opens up in Windows Media Player and runs fine.

EXE's on my desktop, startmenu, everywhere on my computer are not running.

In order for me to run an executable file, I must find where it is on my PC, and then run the Command Prompt and path it out. Once I'm in the right folder and I've typed the filename in correctly, it runs without a problem.

I have not changed anything (that I recall/noticed) and I do not have any viruses or spyware.

Any help would be great.

Thanks,
Justin Lee

I have VCom's SystemSuite 7 as my do-all utility. One of the things it will do is create a restore point whenever a programs wants to install anything -- so if it screws your computer up, you simply run that restore point and it takes the new program out.

I recently upgraded to Windows Medial Player 11. Now every time I open WMP, I get the "do you want to create a restore point" and the file it names is WMP's setup.exe. Have never encountered this with any previous version of WMP or for that matter, any other program. What's causing it?

Is there a simple command I can use to shut down my PC in the HWinfo64 monitoring tool? It lets you program it to execute a program if a certain parameter is met. I want to tell it to shut down the PC if the CPU temp hits a certain max temp, just as a precaution, like coretemp does automatically. HWinfo lets me point it to an exe to execute so I'm wondering if there's a way to execute a shutdown command? Maybe a bat file I can point it to with a command to shutdown? Any ideas?

Edit: I see there's shutdown.exe in the system32 folder which should work. Is there any arguments I should include when pointing HWinfo to that exe? I think I've got:

C:\Windows\System32\shutdown.exe
with the arguments set to:
/s /t 00 /f

where /s is for shutdown the system, /t 00 is the number of seconds to shutdown (0 seconds) and /f forces running applications to close without forewarning to users. Is this correct?

I know I can add a script to startup/shutdown via the gpo for the domain but I want to actually schedule a script to run on all computers while they are up. I just can't do this via startup/shutdown scripts since a lot of the machines will not reboot for a long time to come.

Hello everyone!

So, don't pay attention to my computer stats, as now I own a Macintosh, however, I've been having problems getting a Perl code to execute in Firefox, or any other browser on my computer for that matter!?!?! I'm so confused, because on another computer that I use a remote server, it's able to read it.

So this is what I do.

I make the Perl code in the terminal using Vim:

#!usr/bin/perl

print "Content-type:text/html\n\n";

print "<html> \n";
print "Welcome to the world of Perl! Please enjoy yourself \n";
print "</html> \n";

and then I save the file as hsimmon.2.2.pl and exit out of Vim, and run the code at the command line, and this is what I get:

Content-type:text/html

<html>
Welcome to the world of Perl! Please enjoy yourself
</html>

Next, I move to the browser (firefox), and I type the location into the address bar as such:

file:///Users/harrysimmons/root/perl_backup/hsimmons/S2.2/hsimmon.2.2.pl

Then, the output of the browser does not execute the code, it just displays all of the code in a plain text format. Is it because it's not running through Perl first? How am I able to make the code run through Perl first, and then submitted to the browser?

Any help would be appreciated.
 

Answer:Firefox not Executing Perl Code

Firefox does not run Perl code (nor does any major browser). When making webpages using Perl and other server-side scripting languages, the Perl code is run on the web server and then sent to the browser from the server. So you either need to set up a web server on your machine to test the perl code, or get some online hosting service where you can upload your files.

I have been helping a relative set up a new Windows 7 machine. First chance I've had to mess with this "wonderful" new version.

One little annoyance is that a couple of applications I've installed won't run without triggering a UAC warning that says something like "Windows doesn't recognize this application. Do you really want to run it?" I give it the expected "yes dear" and it runs just fine. It is particularly annoying for a program that is to run at boot-up as an autorun. You're greeted with the warning box on every boot.

There MUST be some way to make Windows run these apps without presenting the warning every time. Right? I backed off the "fussyness" level for the UAC with now effect on the problem (didn't turn it off completely). All of my efforts have been from an account with administrator privileges.

Can anyone tell me how to get around this?

A few days ago I got a GDI error message that was third screen long.... I was too fast on the mouse and I missed it.

Since then, it seems that there is a 20 to 40 seconds delay before a program actually runs. When the system boots, it takes about two minutes to completely reach a working desktop (it usually took 40 seconds to boot from OFF).

When I click on an icon (double click), the hard drive is being accessed and the software starts to show on the screen. Then it stops, nothing happens for 20 seconds or so, and then the hard drive continues to load the software.

Running the File Manager of Window$ takes about 40 seconds to respond - for example. Yet, running NoeTab-Pro (text and HTML editor) is fine and the software is up in a fraction of a second - What gives?

After a software is up, it works fine, until I need to Open a file, or Save a file... It looks like accessing the drives takes a pause, and I don't understand why.

P4 2.4GH, 1GB DDR333, 1 drive 200GB, 1 drive 250GB, 2 DVD/RW drives, GeForce 5700LE video card.... Windows 2000 Pro SP4 updated.

The system also lost its network ports (always says they are already taken). Has active ZoneAlarmPro, Panda Antivius, Spybot, AdSubtract - All latest versions and updated. The delay happens regardless if any or all protective software is running or disabled.

Safe mode didn't change anything, and the drives are defragged once a week.

Help please.
 

Answer:Solved: 20-40 delay in executing software - Why?

Power supply died while drives were working. System went out of whack big time and caused all kind of timing problems.

Solutions:
- Power supply was replaced with a more expensive and reliable one (500W)
- Swap area (page files) was changed by a bit, just to cause a reset and refresh by Windows 2000.
- Re-install SP4 to allow networking again.

Result: system rocks!

Cost in hardware: $62.50 (including shipping) for power supply.
Cost in loss of work: potentially $20K (three weeks to sort this out) - but I used my notebook (Winbook Si2 Pentium III 850Mhz) to run two companies on.

I can easily execute it directly from SQL*Plus by typing in : "@c:\my report.sql" I now need to do a similiar thing from VB. I have no problems calling select statements, as well as stored procedures.

P.S. The report simply has some formatting and compute statements, together with a set of selects, each of which spools to seperate files.

Thanks

When trying to open up any application, I receive a windows error window with 'OK' button titled (application).exe - Bad Image. The error states "the application or DLL C:\Windows\system32\wuveyipe.dll is not a valid Windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette" I have run SUPERAntiSpyware Free Addition, Microsoft's Defender and more recently HijackThis. After running Winferno's Registry Power Cleaner following the three above scans, I am still left with the same error. I've attached the latest hijackthis log below. Any ideas on what can be done to resolve this issue? Thanks in advance.

I just finished reviewing another post the recommended running and posting combofix log. Here are my results:

Recently I started getting notifications and the such that said "Windows is not genuine." after letting a friend use my computer, I backed all my files up and re-installed Windows 7, but the drivers for the WLAN card didn't install correctly (probably because i had to borrow the boot disk from someone). So I used a friend's computer to download the drivers from HP, but after running the installation it opens for maybe a second (at least I can see the icon appear in the taskbar) and closes again. The model of my PC is HP 2000-299WM Notebook PC and is running windows 7. Thanks ahead of time.

Did you get the correct version of the driver? ( 64 vs 32 bits )

Some phantom (I made that name up) is executing Windows commands (I am using XP). When Windows Live Mail for the Desktop is open, the phantom inevitably closes the program within a half hour (whether I am actively using it or not). Other random commands are also being executed - yesterday a complete copy of a directory and all its subdirectories was made to another location on my hard drive. I lose control of the mouse and the keyboard when the phantom takes over. Esc doesn't work. Often I see the Windows Start function being executed. Sometimes I can use Alt shortcut keys to close a window that was opened by the phantom, but most of the time I cannot. Ctl-Alt-Del usually doesn't work when the phantom takes over, and when it does, I only see the performance screen; I am unable to click a tab to see other screens (such as Applications). Eventually I regain control of the keyboard and the mouse, but sometimes I just regain control of the Windows key and reboot.

I noticed this beginning when I was told by Microsoft that my Hotmail accounts in Outlook Express would need to be changed to look like other POP accounts, AND that they (Microsoft) recommended moving to Windows Live Mail for the Desktop as a replacement for Outlook Express, which I did. It was only after migrating to WLM that this began, but not right away (maybe a month later).

I have implemented McAffee Security Center and run AdAware, but neither has fixed this problem. I hope you can help me.

I reformatted my computer at the beginning of the year and everything ran just fine until about 1 week ago. I have Norton Internet Security 2006, I have spyware doctor, and tune up utilities 2006. I ran all of these programs and none of them found anything. I try to run Utilities, and it doesn't allow me to do a 1 click maintenance. When I tell it to defrag the registry, it tells me I don't need to, but whenever I try to run some programs, it doesn't allow me to, it just tells me program failed to launch. Some programs I try to run are:

PopCap Games; Bookworm, Astro Pop
MS Office 2003 PRO; no program works
Azerus; I've reinstalled this program several times, but whenever I restart it, it says it is missing a file.
Scrabook Factory; I've reinstalled this program several times, but it never works.

"the system cannot find the path specified" is what I also get with quite a few programs, I have checked the files, they are there, no files are missing, yet my computer cannot pull them up. Usually when I start having problems like this I just reformat, but I don't want to have to do that this time. I have too much information to back up, almost 400 gb of information to be exact, I know you understand that is not fun to back up. If I must, then I will. One thing that did happen first is I couldn't open task manager, ctrl alt delete did not work, but then I ran tube up utilities, and it fixed some registry problems, and this is when I started having these p...

I have put the following into task manager: Adobe update, Jave update and shutdown. None of these are executing and running! Can anyone tell me why? Maybe I am not doing it right?? Running windows xp home edition, sp3.

Thanks, Joe
 

Answer:Solved: Task Manager not executing

Shutdown should be an option form Task Manager's menubar. The others would need to be entered under the Processes tab>File menu>New Task box but in the form of the exeuteable file. Try wuauclt.exe for Windows Update Automatic Update CLienT and then hit Enter.

Good day Everyone,

I have a project where I am comparing two different programs that accomplish the same tasks. One of the ways I would like to compare them is how quickly they execute some of their features. These programs are involved heavy analysis and they have many features. I wanted to set up a few these features, click "OK", and then clock how fast they finish there commands. Is there a program that can do this?

Thank you much,

LIOTB

Hi all -

I've run into a strange issue with a customers computer. He is running W2K Pro w/SP3. 512mb RAM. I will start with exactly what the issue is, and then go into detail as to what lead up to this afterwards.

Basically upon bootup in normal mode, the machine proceeds to display the desktop but then opens a wordpad instance for EVERY startup item! The wordpad instances are simply binary with clear ascii text at the top stating "This program cannot be run in DOS mode". The wordpad window title is the name of the startup item trying to be executed. Example: rundll32, hp printer applications, modem helper, etc... About 10 open up, which is about right seeing that he has about 10 startup items.

The same happens when booting in safe mode, except the instances of wordpad don't automatically open. One has to try execute a program, then the wordpad will open stating "This program cannot be run in DOS mode".

In both cases of normal mode or safe mode about the only action you can take is open My Computer and Control Panel. Even right clicking on My Computer and selecting Properties executes wordpad and states that RunDLL32 cannot be run in dos mode! Also, any executable files icon is changed to a wordpad icon.

Bizzare...

Ok, so last week I provided service on the computer and cleaned it up of spyware and adware. I removed NAV 2004 and SpySweeper (both expired) and replaced with AVG Free (temporarily) and Windows Defender. The system w... Read more
