Winmgmt Event 4 :- "failed To Load Mof ... While Recov"; 51 new wbem\*MOF files

Question: Winmgmt Event 4 :- "failed To Load Mof ... While Recov"; 51 new wbem\*MOF files

This only happened once immediately after reboot following removal of Comodo Firewall 3.5.This event has never repeated after many reboots.I have not seen any subsequent errors of any sort.Does the absence of repetition indicate that Windows succeeded on the next reboot,or that Windows has given up trying to mend a fatal wound ? ? ?There were 4 off such error events within 1 second, designating these *.MOF filesC:\WINDOWS\MICROSOFT.NET\FRAMEWORK\V1.1.4322\ASPNET.MOFC:\AC30D119A40F2C8C8708A20576\I386\LICWMI.MOFC:\WINDOWS\MICROSOFT.NET\FRAMEWORK\V3.0\WINDOWSCOMMUNICATIONFOUNDATION\SERVICEMODEL.MOFC:\WINDOWS\MICROSOFT.NET\FRAMEWORK\V2.0.50727\ASPNET.MOFI later found that starting a few seconds before that, and finishing a few seconds after,there were 51 *.MOF updated time stamps in C:\WINDOWS\System32\wbem\AutoRecover.Comparing Acronis images of C:\ taken before and after removal/replacement of the Firewall I see :-4 original *.MOF files that retained timestamps of last year and before7 original *.MOF files that were halved in size as they were modified44 brand new *.MOF files I have not seen before.Do all these extra *.MOF files in ...\wbem\AutoRecover indicate a major disaster ?Does the absence of further WinMgmt event 4 errors show recovery without failure on the next reboot ?Does the continued presence of all these *.MOF files show that after recovery Windows was too lazy to delete redundant files ?Or has it left it all for me to try and recompile or something ?I am hoping to be assured that all is well,or to have a quick fix that is sure to work,otherwise I could play safe and restore the system via Acronis image with the old Firewall,and then try to be more gentle as I replace the Firewall,and then repeat all the other updates and adjustment done in the last 7 weeks.I do not want to repeat the last 7 weeks, but I would rather do that than wait until I discover what is badly broken,and then have to repeat everything I might be doing next year ! !I am using XP Home with SP3RegardsAlan

Preferred Solution: Winmgmt Event 4 :- "failed To Load Mof ... While Recov"; 51 new wbem\*MOF files

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I removed Comodo 3.5 Firewall and completed removal by rebooting the P.C.
I then checked the event logs to confirm all was well.
I found in the Application Event log that about 1 minute after that latest reboot and login there were 4 errors.

All 4 errors were
Event Type: Error
Event Source: WinMgmt
Event Category: None
Event ID: 4
"Failed to load MOF" {specific file} "while recovering repository file."

The specific files were

Incidentally both the ASPNET.MOF files had a last access date from last year,
so I seems to me that the "Failed to load MOF" was because the was no attempt to read them.
Also .NET v3.0 was purged last year, so the fourth item no longer exists ! ! !

I never knew till then that there had ever been any need to "recover repository files".
There were no further errors when I rebooted 4 times in succession,
so I assumed it was a "one time" failure to recover, and upon the second reboot a full recovery was achieved.
Did I do Good ? ? ?

I then installed Comodo 3.10 Firewall, and the next application event was

This only happened once immediately after reboot following removal of Comodo Firewall 3.5.
This event has never repeated after many reboots.
I have not seen any subsequent errors of any sort.

Does the absence of repetition indicate that Windows suceeded on the next reboot,
or that Windows has given up trying to mend a fatal wound ? ? ?

There were 4 off such error events within 1 second, designating these *.MOF files

I later found that starting a few seconds before that, and finishing a few seconds after,
there were 51 *.MOF updated time stamps in C:\WINDOWS\System32\wbem\AutoRecover.
Comparing Acronis images of C:\ taken before and after removal/replacement of the Firewall I see :-
4 original *.MOF files that retained timestamps of last year and before
7 original *.MOF files that were halved in size as they were modified
44 brand new *.MOF files I have not seen before.

Do all these extra *.MOF files in ...\wbem\AutoRecover indicate a major disaster ?

Answer:SINGLE WinMgmt event 4 :- "Failed to load MOF ... while recovering repository file."

First, some data on .mof files, AND that you made me check this system ...I have 121 files with the .mof extension. About 70% of them seem to be in C:\Windows\System32\wbem\AutoRecover, 25% in C:\Windows\System32\wbem..a few in service pack folders, MS.NET, etc.From what I see, it's too technical for me to worry about. If it was something to worry about, I suppose that Event Viewer would give me an error message about it or I would get a BSOD, etc.I don't spend a lot of time worrying about WMI processes...they don't exist for me, they exist for XP (at least, that's my interpretation).Louis

My computer recently started having issues........ here is what is going on:
* boot computer
* Windows boot screen displayed ~ 1 minute
* screen goes black. Can move mouse. Drive light constantly on, not blinking. ~ 5 minutes
* log in screen comes up / log in
* Desktop loads ~ 1 minute
> sometimes it loads with regular windows aero theme other times it loads with basic windows classic theme.
* Error message pop up "failed to connect to System event notification service"
* Have to wait for about 5 more minutes before computer is actually usable
* The audio service does not work as well...
from when I press the power button to when I can actually use my computer takes 10 - 15 minutes.

Here is what I have tried so far
*Turning off all start up programs / services
*Tested Memory - passed
*Hard Drive Self Test ---- # 1 - 7 fail / I am guessing that this is the source of the problem, however my computer does still work once everything is finally booted. So I don't know what to do with that information or if that test even matters.
* I have tried looking at the event viewer but every time it says that the event log service is unavailable.

Answer:Windows failed to conect to " system event notification service"

This seems to be a common problem, I am now also experiencing the same.
I have Win 7 Home Premium 64. Did chkdsk /r, defragged, tried sfc/scannow scanned for viruses and even tried reseting winsock.
My aero themes are greyed out, when trying to fix it with MS fixit it errors out.
It takes a long time to boot and then says "failed to connect to System event notification service"

One search on google will show this is a major problem, so why does MS not come out with a fix.
This seems to be the biggest frustration with Win 7 compared to XP, lack of support from MS.

failed to load locale files from "Program Files\Western Digital\WD Smartware\Locale"

The menu box it's under is entitled " WDContextMenuHandler "

I get this error when I just right click on any part of "my computer" everytime.

the pc then goes blank on desktop while it says " windows explorer shutting down " and then pc comes back. I tried to uninstall WD smartware but it won't allow me to. When I installed it the first time, all the menus were not available, so I uninstalled it, so I thought, and reinstalled it. Now there are 2 WD Smartwares shown in my programs and I can only get rid of the newest one. I also tried a system restore, but the date before the first install is not available.

any help.

Hi, have just tried to do a clean install of windows 7 64 bit on my new PC. I have been into the bios to make sure it is set to boot from DVD, all good. I then insert the windows dvd, drawer closes, disk spins, I get to the "windows transfering files" bar at the bottom of the screen, all good. Then the "Starting windows" message appears (without the colourful swirl in the background, just words) and thats it!!! It seems to lock on that screen?

I recently came across a "corrupted" laptop (love how people call things to do with computers corrupted when they can't figure out how to fix it) to fix, it's a Dell Latitude D630 with windows xp home installed.

When i got it, booting up to windows would result in blue screen error after windows xp loading screen 100% of the time in normal mode, and would hang on mup.sys in safe mode (left it booting into safemode for about 6-7hours while i slept at mup.sys and never loaded past it). I decided to do a repair install, got through it all perfectly fine, entered the product key from the sticker on the bottom, worked fine. Booted up again, got past the xp screen to login screen and got the message "this copy of windows must be activated with microsoft before you can log on" can choose "Ok" or "Close" i believe, basically yes or no.. reguardless of what i click, it loads into windows to the desktop, and does not load anything else. ctrl+alt+del doesn't bring up taskmanager. in safemode everything works how it should, msconfig running processes are all normal, nothing out of the ordinary, as well as in services, closed everything except critical processes/services, made a new user as well and logged into that account, get the same activation message and loads to desktop with no icons and still no ctrl+alt+del/start menu/icons/any keyboard shortcut, however windows security center popped up on new account saying there was no anti-virus (woo...

I'll be referring to the image above. The second image that has to do with Outlook Express directly was caused directly after merging some partitions and then changing drive letters. I was using Partition Magic so Drive Mapper supposedly changed all references in the registry. I checked with Microsoft's solution to the problem, but it was of no help ( I would like to just completely remove Outlook Express if I could. As I was following the instructions, I deleted the registry keys I was supposed to which I think led to the first error message you see. I'm not completely sure though, it could have also been because I applied the Windows Vista Transformation Pack.

Answer:"Address Book failed to load" + Invalid root

*bump* Also, I should say that before the Outlook message used to pop up constantly (every 20 seconds or so) and I've gotten it to only pop up at startup by removing those registry entries.

Hi Guy
I'm using win 98 and cannot get my Viavoice working.
This has been an ongoing problem for some time, and was part of a software package from "Time". I've also installed IBM software as a separate voice programme but can't get this to run satifactorily. Time Help is no help, perhaps you can help? Much appreciated in anticipation. Many thanks.


PS Have spent loads of money with "Time"without satisfaction.


Welcome to TSG!

Not sure if I can help but will try......
It sounds as if you have an incomplete or corrupt installation.
When this happens to any software program the best solution is to uninstall and reinstall the package.
1) Go to start\settings\control panel\add-remove programs and locate the via-voice line listing. Highlight it by left clicking and select remove.
2) If there are other entries referring to voice software remove them to.
3) Restart system into safe mode. During restart keep tapping the F8 key until a selection screen appears and arrow to select "Safe Mode" then hit enter.
4) Once in safe mode go to start\find-search\files and folders and type in *.cpl then hit enter
5) A listing of all control panel applets will appear in right pane.
7) Right click that applet and select delete.
8) Restart system into normal mode and reinstall the via-voice package.
Note: Make sure you anti-virus software is disabled before and during install.

Hope that helps.....

I've been experiencing multiple bluescreens daily and what's odd about them is they occur randomly while using many programs; however, I have noticed that they occur more frequently directly after opening a new tab, loading a new site or running a game (StarCraft II).
Looking through Event Viewer. I see a list of warnings and errors immediately prior to the BSOD. In chronological order:

Run the system file check again. Sometimes it requires multiple runs. Reboot after each run (or before the first run if you have not rebooted since the last time you ran the check).Run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker up to three times to fix all errors with a restart in between each. Post back if it continues to show errors after a fourth run or if the first run comes back with no integrity violations. Use OPTION THREE of SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker to provide us with the sfcdetails.txt file if errors occur.

Please review this issue for me as I need the answer for my references. This sometimes applies to setting up a new Internet Connection in Win 95 or 98. Let's say, that you have set up a new Internet Connection with new ISP path settings. Your asked to do a system restart, you do a restart and all is well until you get to a second screen in the bios that either says:

"Ethernet Adaptor failed to load press any key to retry" OR

"Ethernet driver failed to load press any key to retry"

I can't remember what the message says, but it's one or the other! after the word "Driver" or "Adaptor" it gives the driver name. You CAN however still get into Windows by pressing any key....But, the message will come up until you remove the driver.

I vaguely remember that to remove this message you go under Device Manager, under "Networking" and remove a device that has an exclamation point under it (This removes the network driver that doesn't load) But what does this message mean and how does it happen to get there in the first place? I know that it happens when setting up a new Internet Connection sometimes, but I need to know the exact steps for removing the driver because I might be changing ISP's in the future, and need to know what to do if this message comes up again! Thanks!


Answer:What Does "Ethernet Driver Failed To Load" Mean?

i think the message means that the driver is corrupted/not responding

why it happens, i dont know, but if u are installing a separate software to connect to your isp, this software might be the problem

the proper way of removing the driver is to delete it from device manager

Hey guys

this is a great and detailed tutorial and all worked as explained except to the last step...

I still can't get into my account, what sucks big time.

It looks like the password has been changed as the error message is not the same when I enter a wrong password.

It says some like "failed to load the user Profile" or to "failure to connect to the service to load the User" (it's in another language so I translate the best I can.

When I hit the OK button the login page will reload.

I ain't get the link to reset a new password in that process, that one I get only when I enter a wrong password. Anyhow, I don't have a password reset disc (unfortunately)


Can I use above tutorial and simply REMOVE any kind of password from keeping me out of my W7?

I can get till the last prompt where the tutorial shows to enter a new password, so maybe I can do this to get rid of the password too?

Would be awesoome

Thanks for Any Help whatsoever

Answer:"failed to load the user Profile"

Hello easycash, and welcome to Seven Forums.

For that error, you would want to use the tutorial below instead. Be sure to read all of it for all available options. You might give the system restore at boot option a try first.

User Profile Service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded.

Hope this helps,

I installed and uninstalled fruity loops (cause it wasnt working properly) and everything started going to shit. Im using XP Pro.

When i open internet explorer i get a "failed to load resource DLL" error message. When i click ok the program opens normally. This also happens when i right click on objects on my desktop.

I did a couple of virus scans and came up clean but when i tried to run auto update for norton it said i uninstalled it....which i didn't.

It also wouldn't let me play mp3s with windows media player, when i re-installed it it fixed that problem.

Anyone have any ideas what's causing this? Any help would be appreciated.

Hello, I hope I am posting this in the right thread. I have a Toshiba satellite laptop with windows xp. Recently, at startup I started receiving a message that says" One or more modules failed to load." "This process will be terminated." All of a sudden, most of my programs are not working correctly either. They won't open and each has their own message. For instance, Adobe Photoshop says they a registry file is missing, please reinstall. Another program says something about a runtime error. I can't even open my Norton anti virus software. This is so frustrating, does anyone know what could have happened and how I can fix this problem? My guess would be some sort of virus, but I really have no clue. Please help!! Thanks

Hello people. I have joined this site hoping to get to help with the issues I have after updating from windows 8 to 8.1. I have been pulling my hair out because after loading this update it has screwed up my laptop.

Firstly after my laptop eventually starts I get the following error message

The module "C:\ProgramData\ljleKtopg.dat" Faile to load
Make sure the binary is stored at the specified path, or debug it to check for problems with the binary oe dependent .DLL files.

The specified module could not be found

The other main problem is

Sometimes when surfing the screen will freeze and sometimes it will start again after about 10 seconds, or it will just stay frozen and I have to switch the laptop off, and then restart it. When I restart it I get the following message on the screen, Configuring windows update, 100% complete, do not turn off your computer. This will stay on the screen for an average of 35 minutes before it goes, and my laptop starts. This happens a couple of times a day and it's doing my head in because it was fine before I had to do the 8.1 update.

Any help would be appreciated.

Answer:"C:\ProgramData\ljleKtopg.dat" Failed to load

As for the dat file; I'll take a wild guess that this might be the residue of a malware that Windows Defender or your virus program cleared up.
The name of the file seems random generated (typical of malware) and the fact that it's in Program Data also smells a bit fishy.
Doesn't seem like a legit name of a file. Perhaps your upgrade cleared out whatever it was.
Check your startup items in the Registry and in Task Manager to see if there is something Windows is trying to start that doesn't seem legit. I am not one to shout "virus" or be dramatic about that, but you might just want to do a scan of your windows directory, Program Files folders and your Users directory.

CCCleanear and HiJackThis tells you if something has been messing with your settings - consider running those for this type of problem.

As for you problems with Windows update - either just hide that update and forget about it, alternatively run sfc /scannow from the command prompt to correct anything funny on your setup that might prvent the update from goingin.

Since these are quite different issues they probably belong in different threads, particularly if it ends up taking a while to get to the bottom of it.

This was the short response - if you are unsure how to do any of what I suggested, please google it, and if it's still not clear, then post back here.

whush, first welcome to MG. I had a long reply typed out earlier, but lost it somehow. Trying again. Go to Start--->Run. Type in SFC and then <enter>. You MUST have your Windows Operating system CD loaded for maximum results. SFC (System File Checker) will check out all files required to run Windows and ask for various answers (courses of action from you) to the problems it finds, Read and re-read the courses of action carefully. Answer "ignore" first time round, if you are not sure of the correct answer. Proceed slowly, with a clear head and no sources of interruption. This may clear your problem, but will certainly help in other areas, at least. Bazza

Three times in the last 24 hours this warning has opened on my Desktop, after I have just closed Windows Live Mail [WLM] . After the warning disappears from the Desktop, WLM opens yet again.

Naturally I've allowed the issue to be reported to MS and sent the information, but I note that there is also a File that describes the event, in this case:


Is there any way that I may attempt to either fix or resolve this issue myself? For starters, I haven't a clue about how I access the quoted File, and if I did, I don't know what to do with it anyway.

Or is this yet another of those situations where you just grin and bear it until MS come up with something to resolve the issue? Hope not 'cos it's mildly annoying...

Answer:"Windows Live Mail has stopped working" - Files describe event; Fix?

1) Ignore error message.
2) Do a "repair" of Windows Live Essentials via Programs and Features
3) Use the Disk Cleanup utility
3) Use sfc /scannow via the command prompt window.

event log "unable to complete the operation on" eg. system "the interface is unknown" windows xp.

Also I can add programs to Symantec internet security 2005 firewall, reinstalling don't fix it. Some programs also start to fail, "bad image" or you don't have admin premissions.

Reinstalling SP2 or using system restore for XP don't fix any thing.

maybe you removes something with hijackthis which your system needs

Answer:Where are "ModemRingOn" and "PME Wake Up Event" located in bios?

BIOS's vary widely; there is no standard features that are included. It's possible your BIOS has neither of them.

If these are features you are interested in exist, the first thing to do is to check the motherboard manufacturer's web site's "support" page, and find out what the latest version of BIOS is available for your motherboard, compare that to what you actually have on your motherboard, and then read the change log to see if possible these features were added.

You can also research these features by Googling the text "ModemRingOn" and the model number of your motherboard "GA-XYZ123" in the same search, in order to filter hits that are limited to those that include references to both of these qualities. Look for forum posts, and other technical sites & information.

Also, look for the User Manual for your motherboard on-line. Sometimes these include information on the BIOS of the motherboard.

Have copied the "Pro_highres" files to my computer and deleted the smaller "Pro" files on the phone (Lumia 930) in order to save space. To me it seems logical that the larger files are the master files and should not be affected by removal of the smaller copies. However, the highres files which by mistake were not copied before the the smaller Pro files were deleted can not be opened, copied or viewed. The larger files can be opened on the computer even without the presence of the smaller files. While the phone is connected to the computer it is still possible to see the file names of the highres files on the computer screen but not on the phone - and again - I can not copy them from the phone to the computer nor open the files. What has happened and how to I get access to these photos??!! Thanks for any help!

Answer:Unable to see, copy or open the "Pro_highres" photo files after deleting the smaller "Pro" files?

Use File Browser on your computer to rename them to the file name of the 5MP version.
I'm finding that manipulation of the High Res jpegs from Lumia Camera on the phone is just not worth the blasted efforts. Shoot 5MP + High Res DNG and put Rawer on your phone. Then shoot your High Res jpegs in ProShot or Camera360 Sight and access them as normal through Camera Roll.

Hello Folks,

Panda will not allow me to turn back on "permanent protection", and I get a popup that says, "Could not load the permanent protection for files".

Has anyone encountered this? Know what is wrong?

The machine is Dell Dimentsion 4300, P3, XP SP1 (*gasp*)(lame, yet unsurmountable, reason), Zone Alarm (AV on or off panda gives same message)

Thanks for any thoughts.


Answer:Panda: "Could not load the permanent protection for files"

I had that problem, and I emailed Panda, and they told me to make sure that I fully uninstalled any previous antivirus programs, then to reinstall panda.
But that didn't work, so I ended up switching to a different antivirus

I am using Windows XP Media Center. I downloaded SP2, then uninstalled it. I have used system restore several times just to get most of my system working again (my second monitor feature was messed up). Now when I try to use the TV part of my Media Center, I get the following series of error messages:

Cannot Load Critical Files
Some of the files needed to properly play video are missing or corrupt. Try restarting Media Center or restarting the computer to see if this fixes the problem. If it does not, it may be necessary to reinstall Windows.

When I exit out of Media Center, I get the following:

ehshell.exe - Common Language Runtime Debugging Services
Application has generated an exception that could not be handled. Process id = 0x9a8(2472) Thread id = 0x9ac(2476)

Finally, when I try to get out of that error message, I get:

Attempt to launch a JIT debugger with the following command resulted in an error code of 0x2(2). Please check computer settings.

Can anyone please help? I called HP Support several times, but they were no help at all.

Also, does anyone know why my restore points suddenly disappeared? I didn't turn off system restore or anything... all of my points that preceded this morning are gone now!

Hello everyone
Recently, I'm playing Anno 1404 (also called Dawn of Discovery) in my Vista Home Basic 32bit finely until I saw the problem with the "save/load" problem. First, it saves "systematically" but, the save is corrupted to a 5kb file. Second, the game can't load the 'properlly saved' save file, and also the corrupted one also.

Few of the players had the similar problem, and someone said that making another user account works, and I tried and really worked for me. Yes, I can play this way, but all of my files and infos are saved in the Administrator account, and I don't want to switch users just to play that game

Recently I found a useful MS program, which is runas, and found how to run as another account. It asks for the account pw, and everythis was fine, but it doesn't run my game
It just closes the cmd and nothing happens. What could be this problem?
I hope Ubi gives out this fixing patch fast

Answer:Anno 1404 "save/load" problem and using "runas.exe"

Hi, I recently made some upgrades to a (previously fine) PC - they were

- Installing 4GB extra RAM, of the same variety
- Reinstalling windows on a new SSD (a Samsung SSD 850 EVO 500GB)

I previously also upgraded to Windows 10, but a bunch of blue screens and other issues later I reinstalled 7. I'm still having problems though - the current symptoms are that every so often (1-3 times a day) the computer will hang for ~1-2 minutes on the 'starting windows' screen. When it finally loads, it will often hang for further extended periods before settling down. I checked in these event log and during these periods there will be many 'atapi' errors, with Event ID 11 "The driver detected a controller error on \Device\Ide\IdePort0." (I have attached a screenshot).

There will sometimes be other errors, usually relating to the timeout of certain things, but the previously mentioned error is by far the most prolific. On rare occasions there have been more serious errors - never blue screens since going back to windows 7, but once I booted to a black screen with just a mouse (was able to shut down via task manager then following a restart seemed ok).

Through some investigation, it does seem to be that the root cause of the problem is the SSD; I identified this a while ago and have tried various fixes, including:

Afternoon, I'm a bit boggled by this issue we are having on a PC at our office. It seems that the PC normally will boot up and the memory usage will be low 2 GB / 16 GB until 10-12 minutes go by then it shoots up 11 GB / 16 GB. It's really odd and I can't explain it, since no applications are started.

I took it upon myself and downloaded RamMap. Using RamMap I was able to determine that the memory is caused by "mapped files" under "file summary" I can see the two large files which are to blame. But I'm not able delete these currently until tomorrow to confirm the user doesn't need them.

What I'm looking for is an answer as to why these files seem to be singled out? Thanks in advance. I've included a screenshot to the RamMap findings and my understanding with how memory is handled is limited.

EDIT - I can see now only 1 large file is being selected for "mapped file".

I just got done using the MS fix it tool to remedy the compress old files hang that occured when you used the disk clean up tool . There were about 20k old files that no matter how many times you ran disk clean up they were never compressed a matter of fact at times I would actually see an "Increase" in files listed in the compress old files line AFTER I did selected "compress old files" clean!!!

So I used the MS fix it tool to solve the problem and guessed it the tool removed the option for "compress old files" ! Now it is no longer there. MS states that they deleted this option to prevent the hang issue. But this is why I want to know whether these old files are actually being compressed when i use the defrag and it says "compacting files" ..

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:Is "compacting" files in defrag the same as "compressing old files" in disk clean up?


The 'compressing files' referred to by a defragmenter is the process of moving the files it has put together to the start of the drive.

When defragmenting files, it moves the pieces of the file to an empty space further into the drive. Once it has done this to all the files, it moves them back to the start of the drive as this is generally the fastest part.

This doesn't compress files like the option in disk clean up.

Hi all,

I'm puzzling this one. In the folder options when I choose 'view' the radio button to show the hidden files is missing. I've already checked the registry at the HKLM/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Explorer/Advanced/Hidden

and everything seems ok (value for 'Type' is 'group' etc.). Using the XP tweak (Kelly's corner #155) shows the hidden files, but the button still missing.

Another thing that I encountered with was that from the start menu the "Help and Support" not working. Again, the registry seems fine, and the process is activated (started). This came up when I tried to use system restore option - with no success.

Virus scan didn't find alerts of any kind

Answer:missing "show hidden files" button + "Help and Support" not working from start menu

Ok I found the answer (after quite a lot searching), as follows:

1. for the 'Hidden files' radio button - I used methods 1 and 2 from here-

2. for the helpcenter I just reinstalled it as described here -
note that the file 'dataspec.xml' is needed to be available for this, and it can't be done directly from the XP CD. The thing that worked for me was to insert the XP CD, and use the file that in my computer (C:\) and afterwards another file on the CD.

Again, all this happened with no virus detection, so I believe that there is no infection. However, if someone has remarks on the HiJackThis log I've put, feel free to add them.

Most recently, I have experienced multiple PC issues. Recently, I performed a System Recovery and encountered the following ?

1. Cannot perform a SYSTEM RESTORE. The message is: ?Restoration Incomplete. Your computer cannot be restored."

2. When I booted up this morning, and DID NOT HAVE A DESKTOP.
The screen was blank ? no Icons.

3. The items below are APPEARING IN MY TEMP FOLDER, and are located at: C:\DOCUME~1\COMPAQ~1\LOCALS~1\Temp:

........a. 415303181927525125.tmp
......... plus similar numbers.

........b. IswTmp
........c. msohtmlclip1
........d. msohtmlclip

I delete the above items through safe mode but they re-appear.
** I am MOST CONCERNED ABOUT Items 1 & 2.


? (DESKTOP PC) Windows XP
? (SP3) HP Compaq Presario 061 - Media Center Edition,
? AMD Athlon (m) 64 Processor / (X 86-Based PC - 32-bit package)
? Version 5.1 / 2600 Build Processor

** If someone would give me some feedback, I would appreciate it tremendously.

Kind regards,

Answer:NO DESKTOP after booting up & SYSTEM RESTORE "Incomplete" & "Strange" Temp Files

Usually when the machine has a "blank" desktop, the boot/startup process has been interupted or is frozen to before Explorer is launched.

You can launch Explorer manually be navigating C:\Windows and double-clicking "Explorer".

If successful, do the following:

Start>Run>(type) "msconfig" and turn off all non-MS services and all startups.

Then, Start>Run>(type) "cmd", and at the command prompt type "chkdsk /f" and schedule a chkdsk to run on next reboot.

Reboot system and report results.

I am running Windows XP SP3, fully updated, on an Acer lap top PC.

I have several folders full of .mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. To do this I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

The two new columns appear, but the format of the "Duration" column appears to be "hours:minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03" for most .mp3's, when what I want to see is 'hours:minutes:seconds", e.g. "00:03:45".

This also happens for video files (.avi files), e.g. all my episodes of "Heroes" (sad, I know) have a duration of "00:42" instead of "00:42:xx".

Here are two pictures showing the problem with the .mp3's. The first is of Explorer showing the Duration as "Hours:Minutes":

Mods, if you feel that this thread is more of a "Windows" issue, please feel free to move this thread.

Here last year I did my second build because I was having "boot" issues. Wasn't certain what exactly the problem was at the time. But something some how screwed up the boot sequence in my system, and where everything was pretty much "outdated." I just went ahead and did another build.

Though, since then I've been pondering around with the thought of using a SATA to IDE adapter so that I can retrieve what ever salvageable data I can from one of the two HDD's that was in my last build. So I finally broke down and ordered a couple different one's earlier this week.

Unfortunately, I've been running in to some problem(s) when I try to launch with the IDE in place.

Upon initial launching, the boot sequence seem to take some time longer than it normally does with out the IDE HDD in place. Though after a 15-20sec lapse I'll get an error screen displaying an windows error code of "0xc000000e" with a prompt message below stating "The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible"

I searched all over online to see what that error code represents, only to get "pages after pages" of sites with each site telling me something different.

I have no intentions of using this as a third HDD in my system. I just want to retrieve select data from it.

Hi, as with many I have upgraded to Windows 10 today and it is going well except for the fact I am unable to save any files or create new ones in the Documents and Pictures folders or any sub-folders within these folders, and I have no idea why it is doing this. For instance, I tried to save an image created in paint and attempted to save it in the Pictures folder, it gave me the error message seen in this picture below:

Note, I am the only user on the system, and also the admin account so I do not know why it says this. Clicking Yes on the box does nothing and the same thing still occurs afterward. In addition, bringing up the right click menu and going to new only allows me to create a new folder, and the windows admin shield icon appears next to it. Deleting files also prompts me to ask for admin permission but in that case I can simply click the continue button and it goes through. Any advice?

Answer:Unable to create or save files in "Documents" and "Pictures" folders

Open the folders properties and got to the security tab and change permissions for your account, if you can't change permissions take ownership of the folder, if you can't take ownership of the folder activate the super administrator account and change permissions and/or ownership.

There are lots of guides on how to do all of that if you need more detailed steps.

I've scanned my laptop with SFC four times in this past week, and each scan ended with the same failure to repair specific files. I'm uncertain how to proceed with these corrupted files.

I followed the instructions in the SFC /SCANNOW tutorial; I installed the System Update Readiness Tool (CheckSUR in attachments) after running SFC three times and it managed to find and fix some sort of error. However, the results seem to be the same in the new SFC scan logs.

I also tried obtaining a .iso of Windows 7 home premium from Microsoft's website (Access Denied) to run a repair install, but it will not accept my product key due to it being a pre-installation provided by Samsung.

I do not have a Windows 7 installation disc so I cannot manually replace them like the tutorial suggests.
Also, I don't know if this is relevant or not, but I ran the WindowsUpdateDiagnostic.diagcab troubleshooter several times as well (dism.txt is in attachments). Every single time it says that two problems were found:
1. Problems installing recent updates (Not fixed)
2. Service registration is missing or corrupt (Fixed)

Additionally, I've recently noticed that my free hard drive space has been decreasing rapidly. In the past two days, it has decreased by 2 or 3 GB, despite not downloading or installing anything. Is this related to my current problem with the corrupted files or something else? I don't know how to find what's eating up my storage space.

Any advice is appreciated,

I'm posting this in the Vista forum because this has never happened with Windows 2000 or XP.

I bought two exact duplicate models of hard disks. I set up Vista Ultimate on one of my systems. I used Acronis True Image 10 to clone the operating disk to the factory-new, never-used, same model disk as a backup drive in the event the first disk failed. I put in the clone to be sure it runs; but, I get the error mentioned in the title of this thread.

Now, if the second disk is supposed to be a clone of the first, why does this happen and how can I fix it?

I'm not married to Acronis for this job so I would use any disk cloning tool that makes a sector-for-sector copy. I use Norton Ghost 2003 for making sector-for-sector raw image (forensic) copies of PATA drives; but, these are SATA drives and Ghost 2003 simply sits there like Tarbaby and he don't say nuttin' to no SATA drive.

CC has a a box to check that deletes what CC calls simply "Temporary Files" but it only deletes the temporary internet files and my TEMP files are still there even thoug I've rebooted, etc. "Temporary files" doesn;t mean the TEMP filder to CC.

Dear all,

I just upgraded to Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit, and since then I have found that I cannot send some files from my Nokia Xpress Music phone to my laptop. I am using a Fujitsu s6520 Laptop.

I have successfully paired the phone and PC together, but whenever I try sending a file from my phone to the laptop, the file transfers for about 3 seconds, then the "sending failed" message appears, and the laptop says the transfer was cancelled. I have tried transferring a 128kb file, and since that fully transferred in under 3 seconds, transfer was successfully completed.

I am able to synch perfectly from PC Suite, but in device manager, my phone is listed as "bluetooth peripheral devices" under "Other devices", with an exclamation mark next to it.

Can someone please help solve this problem?

PS On a side note, I didn't have to click the "receive a file" button for the phone to start sending a file in Vista. Is there any way I can get around this in Win7?

This machine has restricted Internet access so I downloaded the ISO on another machine, burned it to media and ran the upgrade on the test machine from within Windows. The machine passed all of the checks and tests and reported no issues. It would get to the first "Installing" screen, display 0% and then almost immediately give me the pop-up "Something Happened: Install Failed"

I ran it as administrator, I did a Clean Boot, I uninstalled all of the AV/Malware/security type stuff. Nothing worked. I finally found the setuperr.log in C:\$Windows.~BT\Sources\Panther. Found several error lines and the code was always 80070005. I found a line where the installer had a problem copying install.esd. I cleared out the $Windows.~BT in case there was file corruption in the directory somewhere and tried again - no change. Finally, I decided to create a USB install media and viola! The install completed. And I used the same ISO to make the USB that I had used to make the DVD.

I've read a few other threads where people had problems with the ISO. So the moral of the story is if you need to use install media, use the USB installer.

Hi. I'm thinking about repairing Windows 7Home Premium 32bit with the DVD, because of BSOD, but I hesitate.

I first need to know if the backup folder called "Windows.old" will be a COPY (keeps Date Modified but updates Date Created) or a CUT (simply moves all folders to an other, thus doesn't change Date Created). Thanks!
So of course, only those who have ever reinstalled Windows 7 may know the answer. If you don't know but have reinstalled Windows 7 at least once, please spare 30 seconds to check, simply find a file like a picture or music that you had before the reinstall, and see in the bottom bar of explorer if its Date Created is the original or the reinstall date. You can also click Display tab in Explorer, then Sort by > Others > check "Date Created", > OK > Click display again > Sort by > Date Created. Don't mistake with Date Modified, I know the original Date Modified is kept upon copying, but it will update if you modify the file obviously. Please be honest and double check, losing 5.9 years old dates of my past would be heartbreaking, like mixing the pages of my diary!

Date Created is very important to me (and is underrated because it's not the default sorting option unlike Name/Type/Date Modified) because my computer is 5.9 years old, now has thousands of files and folders and it's easy to find them back and organize them with Date Created sorting if I didn't write tags or description in the file name.

Hi, I've looked all over the internet in attempt to find a solution to a problem that's just affected my computer, and I haven't been able to find anything that relates specifically to the problem I'm encountering.

This hit my computer without warning, I switched it on this morning and it worked as normal, all of a sudden things started to freeze up. I restarted the computer, and now a lot of programs are refusing to open - Microsoft Office, among others, states "Error: There Are No More Files", whilst other programs such as Google Chrome and Internet Explorer state "Attempt to Access From Invalid Address", even when I am running them from their root folders.

I am running a Dell Latitude 830 with Intel Core 2 Duo T7250 (2.00GHz, 2M L2 Cache, 800MHz) Dual Core, 1.0GB, DDR2-667 SDRAM, 2 DIMMS, Intel Integrated Graphics Media Accelerator X3100 and am obviously using Windows XP. I have scanned my system with Avast Antivirus, which didn't state that there were any viruses, so I am stuck as to what exactly the problem is.

I'd really appreciate some help in figuring out what has happened, thankyou so much for your time in reading this!

Answer:"There Are No More Files"/"Attempt To Access From Invalid Address" Issue

I am having the same problem on the same exact hardware. i don't think it could be a hardware issue, but i could be wrong. i have tried repairing windows with no success. i'm thinking the only option is to reinstall windows completely.

The files in one of my folders aren't showing up. It's only that specific folder that is having problem. Whenever I try to access it, no files show up even though there are clearly files in it (Properties say 20.5 GB). And it will always stuck at "not responding"

This is what it looks like:

I've found a possible solution but since it deals with command prompt, I want to make sure I don't make things worse. I need to know what exactly the following command does:

attrib -h -r -s /s /d g:\*.*, in which g is the drive letter.

This video: says it reveals hidden folders but I'm not sure if it's relates to my problem exactly since Properties doesn't have "Hidden" checked. It only has "Read-Only" checked under the General tab.
