Can't upload stuff with Windows XP

Question: Can't upload stuff with Windows XP

Hello,

I'm new to this forum. Wonder if you can help. I have had Windows XP for about a month and find that I can't upload any file over 1MB. I've heard that changing the MTU settings might help. I tried this using Winboost but that didn't solve the problem. Do you have any suggestions?

All the best

Preferred Solution: Can't upload stuff with Windows XP

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.)

I have Windows Server 2008 R2. When I upload files to the FTP site, the time of the file uploaded time is incorrect. For example if I upload a file modified 10:37:10 PM it becomes 5:37:00 PM on the FTP site. It is always 5 hour earlier??

I have installed FileZilla server 0.9.41 on Windows Server 2008 R2. When I upload files to the FTP site, the time
of the file uploaded is incorrect. For example if I upload a file modified 10:37:10 PM it becomes 5:37:00 PM on the FTP site. It is always 5 hours earlier, and truncates the seconds. This makes version control of files difficult. Is there some configuration
change that can fix this, or is this a Windows Server issue? The server time is configured for the Central time zone in The United States.

Ok, long story short: My download speed is fantastic (~47mbps), but once again, my ISP (Comcast), has found some royal way to mess up the entire deal. Basically whenever I try to upload for some reason, sometimes the upload will fail and the few times I CAN get an upload going, the speed is abysmal (we're talking 1.3mbps or less). I have tested against multiple devices on my network rebooted the modem/router (it's Comcast's all-in-one thing that includes a router). I tested against a computer plugged by wire directly to it. Can someone give me some general tips other than "Call them and yell at them" (again)? When I say "can't get upload" I mean like going on speedtest.net, watching it show a 18ms ping, download speed, then hang on upload to sit for all eternity and returning no upload metric. My connection to game servers is equally as stunted at this point.
 

Answer:ISP Upload Speed is nonexistent, making upload connections doesn't always happen

If 192.168.100.1 (in your browser's address bar) brings up some modem status check the signal levels (see attached for mine). The Upstream Power should be 30 to 55 dBmV. If you can't get this data I think that your ISP can check it remotely. For more info along this train of thought see What kind of signal levels do I want on my cable modem?.

I recently had a major pain with the Google redirect virus, which was operating on a non admin user profile. Through some research on here and other sites I managed to get rid of it, using MalwareBytes. It found 5 viruses in all, and once they were gone so was the redirection issue. I did attempt using Combofix, but this didnt seem to do much at all.

However, I have found as of late that my computer's upload speed is pathetic, to the point of zero upload speed. I am unable to send files to sites like wordpress and photobucket 9 time out of 10. I originally thought it might be a connection issue, but restarting routers and contacting my ISP to find no known issues has not alleviated the issue. Because of the recent virus activity, I am concerned that the two could be related.

I have tried changing Firewall settings, installed "speedupmypc2011" (which has made a great general difference), but although in IE I can now upload, speed test puts it at a god awful 0.11 upload speed. It never used to take this long.

Please can you advise me on how to make sure the machine is ok?

Answer:Terrible to Zero upload speeds, cannot upload files.. recently got rid of viruses

Since you have used Combofix, Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<==.Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Please include the link to this topic in your new topic and a description of your computer issues and what you have done to resolve them.If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get.

Like you know how people take videos of games they play and feed it into their PC so it is on there? What do I need... and what kind of stuff is possible? Could I transfer a tape from a VCR? A DVD? Or just games? Give me all the information you can because I know nothing about any of this.

How expensive would this be? I hope not too much... If it is something that is selling software with it, but thats what makes it expensive, tell me the way to get it without the software so it is cheaper. I have plenty of video editing programs and stuff, I just need to get the stuff there.
 

Answer:So give me URLs, names of products, stuff I need to get stuff from TV to PC...

Although I can access my site via my Browsers - Opera 7.23 and IE 6 - I can't update it via my FTP program - FTP Explorer. I have two other websites, including one I run for a charity, on different servers. I have no problems uploading to these other sites, only this third one.I've had this problem in the past, but it has gone away after a day or two - this one has lasted several weeks. Each time I try I get the message:Connecting to: xxxwebsiteConnection Established220 Welcome to FTP my site (j1)Connected to: xxxwebsiteUSER zzzzzzzzzzzz|xxxwebsite331 Password required for zzzzzzzzzzzz|xxxwebsite.PASS'error logging on to xxxwebsite'. I've not changed any of the site's settings, including cases and gaps between words which this site is very sensitive about; all worked well for many months, but not now. However, I can easily upload files using the FTP facility on the Server's (Wandoo) web site, using exactly the same dial up connection, password, etc. Odd.I have tried different FTP programs, one of which says 'password not known'. Wanadoo suggested disabling my firewall - Zone Alarm, and my anti virus program - AVG. I update these very regularly and I have no detectable viruses. I also run Spybot S&D regularly. None of the suggestions worked.Any suggestions about what's going on and what to do?Thanks,James Briggs

I have seen a few threads similar to this problem on this forum and I believe I have tried all the possible solutions that I've seen, but the problem persists.

On my co-worker's PC (Win7 Pro, 64-bit, SP1), when he uses Internet Explorer to upload image files to a website, the "Choose File to Upload" dialog always opens in detail view. He'll switch to large thumbnails, look for the file he needs to upload, upload it, and then move on to the next upload (this particular website only lets you upload one file at a time, unfortunately), and the dialog resets to detail view. This is incredibly frustrating for him, especially because I don't have this problem on my (identical) PC.

I've gone through all the folder view settings and painstakingly checked all the Internet Options looking for what might be different between our two systems, and I'm coming up dry. I have tried messing with the registry, doing a System Restore or two, downgrading him from IE11 (which we were both using) to IE10, and it keeps happening.

This doesn't happen in Chrome, but unfortunately the one website we have to use is one of those "Designed for IE, not supported in any other browser" sites (ARGH).

Is there anything I'm not thinking of that could be causing this? His PC is brand-new (A Dell, like all of ours) from just a couple of months ago. He doesn't have any malware that I've been able to spot, and is not an Administrator on the computer (the problem also exists when ... Read more

Answer:cant upload windows

That means your Boot.ini file is corrupted or your HDD has failed. You can test this theory by downloading the ISO image for Seatools in my signature and burn the image to CD using IMGBurn also in my signature and boot off of the newly created CD and run the short and long tests on the drive. If any fails that drive needs to be replaced.

I have a problem with Windows 7 which I've had since beta build 7000. I'm using the retail version right now and it's still happening. Whenever I try to upload something to a website, the progress bar will fill up almost instantly and my ESET Smart Security firewall will say that I uploaded at several megabytes per second. My upload speed is 35 KB/s, however. The upload will eventually finish, but the progress bar doesn't work. My problem is that I'm unable to upload files over 100 MB. If I try to do so, the upload will stay stuck.

I did not have this problem in Windows Vista or XP.

Have you made these attempts with a variety of browsers, or just IE, or...?

Have tried compatibility settings, changing the browser from IE8 to Chrome, removing the firewall etc. So, the problem seems instrinsic to Windows. No error messages, the browser silently hangs.

Answer:Why won't Windows 7 upload pdf files?

Upload means putting them UP onto the internet, usually onto a site. Download means bringing them DOWN to your computer. Do you mean download?Know that Windows 7 64bit has 2 versions of internet explorer (the 32bit version AND the 64bit version) and you need to download Acrobat Reader for BOTH version (unless they now have a double download/installer which they did not as of a number of months ago) for it to work right (the same for Java). I know that you would need another version for FireFox (through add-ons), but I only assume you would also need another for Chrome. Look at Adobe's site for more details and download all versions that you will need. That is for OPENING a PDF file. uploading or downloading is the browser.You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.If all else fails, read instructions.

Hi,
I hope somebody can help me. I have been trying (for what seems like forever) to upload my pics from my hp photosmart 435 digital camera to my computer. I have tried everything possible. Nothing seems to work. I have checked the USB cable, unistalled software, re-installed it, refreshed USB cable, change USB configuration on camera to disk drive- and just about everything else.

I am a beginner with camera and computer, so I am sure it is something I am doing wrong, I just don't know what it is.

Does anyone have any idea what I can do to get this working?

One thing I noticed when I install hp software, when it should prompt you to attach camera to computer, it doesn't give me that option, instead, in order to proceed, I have to check a box that says, "Install without connecting device." Could this be the problem? I don't think my computer is recognizing I even have a camera. When I do hook up the camera to the computer all the screen on my camera reads is, "Connecting to computer" It never changes.

Any ideas? I am desperate to solve this, it is driving me absolutely crazy!

Thank you, in advance, for your help.

Hi Everyone!
I searched this problem of mine and found many posts about the upload speed limited on Windows 10 after upgrading and solutions but not find the exact solution for the problem I am facing so I decided to write and ask, if this issue is addressed before but I am unable to find it so pardon me in advance :)
Now toward the issue
All my uploads are being time out after 3 or 4 seconds and resulting in failures eating my bandwidth and leaving me at 0% even after days after upgrading to Windows 10 I mean all, if file is small enough that got uploaded in the 3 or 4 seconds it is ok it upload but if file is large it start over and over and over consuming the bandwidth each time but not uploading I tried to upload the files to Dropbox, Box and Mega Clouds all do the same thing, e.g 40 pictures 4 MB of each tried to upload and after 2 days just 3 of my pictures are uploaded. It is happening all over if I upload to FTP server it eventually upload in little time but only because FTP server don't start from the 0% again just drop back few percent and start again automatically like first uploaded 1 MB drop back to 500 KB started again uploaded 1 MB making 1.5 MB total and drop back to 1 MB and go on like that.
There is no connection problem because I copied my other files 300 MB of each and uploaded to cloud through my phone and with same connection and I able to upload 4 GBs in 2 hours there is no timeouts there. On Windows 7 it was also no time outs I could just leave fil... Read more

I use Hotmail and when I want to send photos, I use IE8 in order to use this upload tool. It was working when I last looked a couple of weeks ago. Suddenly, there is no longer the option of File or Photo under the Attach option. It does not show in the list of Add ins although it does show as installed in Add.Remove Progs ( Win XP ). The Repair option does not seem to have any effect. Can anyone help me get this option back again into Hotmail/IE8 ?

Answer:Windows Live upload Tool

Hotmail have changed the way they set up attachments - no longer File or Photo, but just a browser window. So this presumably has affected how your upload tool works.

I bought a new computer a few months ago, and all of the sudden I realized I have not been able to post attachments on any webpage. I've tried in Hotmail, Yahoo E-mail, G-mail, even Snapfish, they all have problems and will not allow uploads. I thought it was just internet explorer, so I tried Firefox, and whenever I try to post with that, it says the document contains no data.

I'm running Windows XP with SP2 and using Norton Internet Security as a firewall. I thought the firewall was a problem, but even turning off the Norton firewall for a few minutes it did not help.

Does anyone have any ideas? The tech support for the computer company couldn't figure out what it was.

Answer:aspire E1-510 fails to upload windows

teejazz64,
 
I am sorry to hear you are experiencing these problems with your system. I looked at the PC requirements for FIFA 13 and this systems does not seem to meed the minimum requirements, so this would explain why the game is slow or not responding well.
 
When playing games on a PC, it is recommended to view the minimum specs of the software and match them to your system specs. If they match or exceed then the game will play fine, however that is not the case.
 
As for Windows not uploading and reverting changes can you please be more specific as to what you are trying to do?

I'm having serious problems with uploading since I installed the Win7 recently. Whenever I upload something to a site like mediafire, megaupload or even youtube it reports a ridiculously high upload speed like up to 70MB/sec, which I know is completely false since the fastest I've ever gotten on this connection in reality is more like 70KB/sec. The sites will report the false upload speed and the upload will get to 100% in a matter of seconds but then it just hangs at 100%. I've tried every browser and they all have the same problem.

Anyone familiar with this problem or able to offer a solution? I hope it isn't an ISP problem cos that'd just be awkward.

If I were you, I'd let optional stuff remain optional until the deadline passes. Another month or so of leaving out optional things shouldn't hurt.

Can you use applications that are designed for XP/Vista on Windows 7? Are they automatically compatible or do you have to alter a few settings of something?

Answer:old stuff on Windows 7

Most are compatible, the ones that aren't you can run in compatibility mode or in XP mode which create a virtual environment for the program to run in.

You should still do your homework though. 99% of mainstream programs will work, but there are proprietary software out there that probably won't work.

I have a new computer with window 8. My upload data usage has skyrocketed since installation of my new computer and windows 8. Part of this increase is picture uploads to skydrive, I think. I am trying o sort out what is causing the big increase in upload data which has exceeded my ISP upload data cap. Does anyone have experience with this issue?

Answer:Does Windows 8 add significantly to internet data upload?

If you're using skydrive (or any other cloud storage, this is not Windows 8 or skydrive specific), you will have increased upload costs. Beyond that, there is nothing in Windows 8 that has a very large upload footprint out of the box. All you have to do is disable skydrive and see if your costs go down.

You could be using some third party app that uploads data, but this would not be anything related to the OS.

Ok so since this install windows it seems has been forgetting things. Like my background wont appear sometimes and if I change it to something new the next time I reboot it wont be the new image. If I set all folders to be the same view after next reboot it will be back to the original way.

Just now I rebooted and Firefox erased all my bookmarks don't know if its Firefox's fault or not but im pretty peeved right now. I would like to know if anyone else has had this problem???

I doubt it the hard drive I did a extended test on it and it passed. All other components are basically new and have been tested in other computers just to make sure.

BTW im using XP right now.

Should I just bite the bullet and reinstall or install Vista Business??? I hate vista with a passion so I would rather not do that.
 

Answer:Windows forgetting stuff????

Weird, that definitely sounds like a hard drive problem... When you checked the drive did you run checkdisk or something else? Also, take a look in your system logs and see if any errors are showing up in there.

I installed windows sp2, and it ruined my computer, windows explorer crashes if you right click on a file/folder, any program that runs in the system tray doesnt work, and programs struggle to install due to the registry being locked up. I have tried AVG, Lavasoft, Spybot, XP malicious software tool, windows defender, a registry fixer, etc and they cant fix it(although it doesnt seem like a virus).I tried the system restore in windows xp, i tried uninstalling sp2 but it came up with a language error( its using english?!?). Nothing seems to work!
Anyone got a idea how to fix it?
Thanks.

Answer:Windows XP complete stuff up

Either do one of these two things:

Yesterday, Windows 10 made me download the latest major update. After doing so, I found I could not access anything on my hard drive (OS is in SSD). Since earlier I rolled back an update to fix my sound, I thought it would work here. Big mistake. Now I can't do anything except access file explorer and firefox (although sometimes it doesn't even start). Sometimes, there's a random rounded black square somewhere on my screen, which I do not know if it has anything to do with the problem (my mouse goes over it, so they aren't dead pixels or an imposing window). Here's a list of things I've tried/cannot do:
I cannot access PC Settings
I can access advanced options startup menu, but there is no Reset PC option
Although there were saved points in time before yesterday, I cannot use system restore
Used the Windows 10 USB to try to repair my computer, none of the options work except for command prompt (already tried rstrui.exe)
Entered the key/said I did not have a key to "Upgrade" which says to restart computer without USB in for a prompt to install latest updates. Doing so results in a window appearing 20 minutes after startup that does not respond
Entered the key/said I did not have a key to "Custom Install," giving me a list of drivers. However, none of the drivers are valid options.
I disconnected the SSD to try to install on the hard drive, however the previous 3 points still apply and the hard drive is apparently not a bootab... Read more

hey guysi want to ask some questions about windows 7first one is : how big are the setup files ? i think its a iso , is it ?They are .iso files, yes. The 32bit version .iso is 2.74Gigs.

What brand and model computer do you have?Overall I think if you get Windows 7 to install on this machine, it will not be a very good experience.

This morning I observed on my Windows 10 desktop that the Wi-Fi icon replaced by a mini airplane. The pop-up said that internet is not connected. However I can browse the internet and in fact I registered for this TenForums site. This is simply crazy!!!!. I have only Wi-Fi and it is not wired.

Answer:Conflicting stuff with Windows 10

Any chance you have a wired connection as well? I noticed, after the November Update, that my Airplane Mode icon is often lit, even though I do not have Airplane Mode enabled.

Starting a new job and they're offering to buy me something portable to use at client sites. I already own a Dell Latitude and really don't want another one and am looking at Macbooks. Just wondering if anyone uses a Mac for Windows admin stuff? I know there is an RDP client available for getting into Windows servers and workstations. A lot of printers, firewalls, etc. have web interfaces which are platform neutral. Not sure if Cisco has any admin software available for Mac.

Anyone?

Shit...forgot about Parallels. I think that might seal the deal unless there's some reason why I wouldn't want to use that for admin stuff.
 

Answer:Anyone Use a Mac for Windows Admin Stuff?

I use a 11 inch Macbook Air to administrate my home network.

Windows 7 VM + XenCenter / vSphere Client running in Virtualbox for when I need something local, and a small Windows 7 VM running on the backend that I can easily RDP into if needed.
Been a good number of years since I've used ChickenoftheVNC, but it's rock solid.

Plus, naturally... it's a full Unix OS / Bash under the hood. When in doubt, fire up terminal and life is good.

Haven't tried it in a work environment.... at least, they don't let me play with the important stuff. (yet)

I have an HP 2000 laptop with windows 8. The contrast in the text boxes has the text so light that it is nearly impossible to decipher. I know there is a place to change the setting that controls that but I have been unable to find it.
Untill I get over the top of the windows 8 learning curve, I will continue to think that "windows 8 sucks"

Would someone direct me to that tid-bit?

Thanks,
Gary
 

Answer:windows 8 - where is the good stuff

Is this in the new start screen or on the desktop?
Have you altered the colour scheme at all?

Recently I found this thing called wins.exe under a Documents & Settings folder, so I Googled it. A lot of stuff came up saying that something like that shouldn't be there, so I tried deleting. The problem, however, was that it would come back. Not only that, but when I looked at the Date Modified, it was about the same time as when Norton says something like "A recent attack on your computer has been blocked" or whatever. So, I downloaded and used this Malwarebytes thing a few times. I also removed a few unnecessary stuff (like HUGE 3-D MMORPG game folders) and YAY everything seems to be okay. (Oh, and the Malwarebytes thing said it found like forty-something things)That was yesterday.Just now I was helping my cousin with a report and I was going to print some pictures for her but then the Photo Printing Wizard wasn't working. Next, I try e-mailing it to her with the Windows Live Mail program on my PC... but when I tried that, it said something like a DLL was missing o,oSo, I tried using System Recovery, but all that showed up was a blank screen so I tried Googling THAT too. A lot of websites said to type these things into "Run":regsvr32 jscript.dllregsvr32 vbscript.dllregsvr32 /i mshtml.dll Mmk, the first two worked, but with the thrid one this weird thing comes up.So, I went to another thing that talked about how to reinstall System Restore, so I tried it. BUT a few steps into it, another thing popped up saying that I needed some CD of Ser... Read more

I really need your help. I am a beginner do not have much experience with computers. I had a problem with my acer laptop which had windows vista on it. A virus corrupted the laptop so I was not able to network or use any programs the virus automatically would reroute me to a randomn website to buy some antivirus program. The computer was working fine under the safe mode option which allowed me to back up all my programs and data to an external hard drive. I thought doing a system restore would work I did the alt f10 method and restore to factory default. The computer went through the steps of the restoration fine I clicked ok when it asked to restart but when the computer restarted it says thanks for using windows for the first time please wait while it uploads files. The please wait lasted a whole day and nothing happened it keeps getting stuck there no matter what i do. The cursor just rotates circular and the message says please wait thats all it does and stuck everytime. I restored twice from to the factory default without cd and twice with the cds provided to me by acer system cd, restore cd 1 and 2 and followed with instructions. Don't know why this isn't working ?? someone help??
 

Answer:Help system restore fails to upload windows after restoration

Any error merssages at any time, before or later?
