Answer:Can't find config.nt files in window 7

Is this a 64 bit OS?The config.nt file is used only to configure the 16 bit subsystem. This system does not exist in a 64 bit OS. In 32 bit Windows you will find this file in the \windows\system32 folder. It does not exist in 64 bit Windows.Why do you need to access this file?

I have been running into some issues with my computer for a while and after trying several things I decided to run SFC scan. It claims to have found corrupt files it could not repair but when I followed Option 3 from SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker and opened the sfcdetails.txt file it shows everything as verify complete and no errors or corrupt files. I am attaching the sfcdetails.txt file as well as the cbslog.

I can't find Word in the program files and I was advised to look in the C drive under program files, MS office, office 12, etc but there is no Word.exe file in there. I can open Word docs that are saved in my pc and can even create new ones from the saved ones. I have MS Office 2007Please advise.

Answer:Can't find MS Word in the program files and can't find it in

I looks like you have Windows 7. If that's true, click to open your start menu and type "Word" in the search box at the bottom of the start menu. (If you click and start and just start typing, it will do the same thing.)Once it comes up, you can right-hand click on the icon and pin to taskbar or pin to start menu. You can also go to the "sent to" option and select "desktop". It will create a shortcut for you.

Answer:cant find Window System 32

First of all, chill

That's not a Windows file so it's either malware or some program you installed is looking for that .dll in order to start. Download and run Mike Lin's Startup Control Panel and look for any app that's starting with the system with which you aren't familiar. Uncheck it and reboot. Does the message still appear?

I use a program call Kristal for music editing on my XP machine. I have it set up for duel monitors with workspace on the left and mixer on the right. On occasions when I open it the workspace is on the right and the mixer is off screen to the right of the workspace off the monitor and inaccessible. Is there anyway of getting my mixer back on screen.

Clicking move in the popup menu when right clicking the program on the task bar only moves the workspace not the mixer.
Tiling and Cascading etc from the taskbar also doesn't seem to effect the mixer. I also tried a little program I found called 'borderline' that brings all widows onto one screen which did not work either. At present only a reinstall works of Kristal.

Any help is much appreciated!

Hi,
Now I would have bet my lifes savings on the fact that loads of utilities exist to find and isolate corrupt user created files on DVD's (files written such, not a video) and CD's and usb sticks and hard drives.

I google the www and find after much searching just one, CheckFolder and its a dead duck, website dead.

have I entered the TwilightZone ? (good 60's 70's series ! )

come on, surely there is a utility/prog to seek out dodgy USER CREATED files ?

I am not at all interested in searching system files, and every search result, every prog, every google hit, is all about system fixes !

Answer:Utility to find corrupted USER files not system files wanted

Hi

Sadly I cannot think of any utility that can search or scan for corrupt 3rd party files, other than using Windows chkdsk or sfc scannow but these are not what you want.

The scan app if it was available would have to cover a huge range of apps, and that is likely never to happen as the criteria could be endless..

I need a program to find duplicate files on my hard drive and then give me the option to either manually or automatically delete the copy that I don't want. I have a lot of .DOC, .PDF, .MP3, .XLS, and .TXT files that are duplicates. I used to copy from one hard drive to another and now I have these files spread over a lot of different directories.

I know that Symantec had a Norton Utilities package that used to be great for this!! I think this was back in the days of Win98/2000. But, I can't seem to find anything good now. Any ideas??? I tried going START > SEARCH > find all .MP3 files on hard drive, then arrange them according to size from largest to smallest and then just go through them manually. This was good for the large files (which are most important; since they're the ones taking the most space), but I can't go through thousands of .DOC and .TXT files.

I'm running WinXP Pro, BTW.

THanks!!!

The way I know to access FIND in IE is:

1. Open Internet Explorer.
2. Press CTRL+F.

That's a problem for me because I run a software application that requires the use of CTRL+F. I have to turn this application off to use FIND. I cannot reconfigure the CTRL+F to some other key in this application.

Windows 7 is MY idea but IE was someone else's (JK). Does anyone have a way to force IE to open with the FIND toolbar showing, so that the page search is always available?

Answer:What is the secret way to FIND the IE search window?

Just go to Settings (the picture of a gear) > File > Find on this page. It doesn't take much longer to do so.

Hello. I've recently been trying to dual boot Vista and Xp on the same machine. I had already installed Vista, but I cant get XP installation to recognize my sata hard drives.

Now I really dont know what Sata is, or any of that technical stuff. I just googled it, and found that I was missing some drivers to recognize my sata drives.

So I download Intel Device Manager (I think thats what it was called) and slipstreamed the drivers onto an installation of XP SP3. It still gives me that error, so now I'm kinda stumped. I tried downloading a cracked version of XP with Sata drivers (Gasp sue me! I already have a legit copy.) It still didnt recognize it.

I used AIDA32 and found out my hard drive is a Nvidia Stripe 596.18G, if that helps. Can anyone help me install XP on my computer? I really want to be able to do that.

Thanks for reading this!

Btw I'm running 32-bit Vista Home Premium right now.

Hi and thank you for reading me
Several days ago, I launched a in-depth scan with avast! and a few problems popped-up. Most of them were called PUP and were located in my Temporary Internet Files. I found the ones for IE and deleted them but I don't know if Mozilla has its own separate files. Furthermore, one identified as a trojan was located in my Windows Defender scans file (I have the name of the specific infected file if that might help) but I can't find it and even if I did, I don't know what to do with it. Do I just delete it or do I have to do anything else ?
 
Also prior to that scan, I had very bad network connexion problems. I basically couldn't have access to the web for one of those three reasons :
- Home network but no Internet access
- Unidentified network with Internet access
- Unidentified network and no Internet access
Someone suggested that I might be infected so I did the scan. Now after that, my connexion is much better but not flawless, so I'm wondering if those PUP's might have something to do with it.
 
Lastly, I've been trying to download .exe files from several hosting sites and everytime I do, in the last few seconds of my download, Mozilla freezes. Seconds later, the file is supposedly on my computer and what I find instead is a file named trzF636.tmp The problem only ever comes with hosting sites and it's K-I-L-L-I-N-G me !

Nero Express is only going to burn previously authored DVD files. The 'Add' box is looking for .bup, .vob, or .ifo files, to add to the Video-TS folder on the left.

Did you create a DVD using another program? The full version of Nero has the '“Make Your Own DVD-Video' option.

At the top of the first screen, after Nero opens, choose your DVD drive with the CD option. Then you will get the Video CD option.

I was booting up my PC and then immediately launched firefox. I was just clicking on a link on atdhe.net when I saw some little Windows box pop up in my face. I clicked whatever button was selected since I was already clicking and had no time to react (I also have the "snap to" enabled so I clicked whatever button was selected by default). Immediately after I clicked whatever-it-was, another box popped up momentarily, which had a progress bar... kind of like when you're waiting for a file to be copied or deleted, you see the progress on it. It was like that but again it popped up for just a split second and I again didn't have time to read anything or to figure out what it was about.

So, I have no idea what I clicked on, and what happened as a result. And I'm rather pissed off. I see no reason for there to have been any box popping up in the first place. Why the hell would it? Boxes don't normally pop up when I launch FF. And I want to know what the eff actually happened, what I did.

Is there anything I can do to figure out what happened?? I have WinXP pro.

Thanks

Upon trying to set up my NAT for a VMWare connection i realized that I could not edit any adapter settings. I couldn't change anything because apparently i have no adapters. But that is not the case, i have adapters and am able to get internet connection through wireless and wired connections. My Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller seemed to not be installed correctly, so i tried and reinstall it but every time i do it says incorrect parameter. I have been to dell's site and installed it and i've also been to realtek's site and installed it. Every time it says the same thing... I think it is the realtek that is giving me this problem, but it might not be. I've tried to install it so many times and any way i do it, it just doesn't work. Someone please help me....

This is driving me potty!

Since yesterday for some unknown reason when I use the shortcut CTRL+V it pastes text into the find window of any program that has a find window instead of just placing the text in the dialog box.

CTRL+C has also changed to refresh browser in IE and firefox which is extremely irritating as you can lose any text you've typed.

Other shortcuts seem to be unaffected.

When I use the mouse and right click to copy and paste there is no problem so the shortcuts have obviously been tampered with, intentionally or otherwise.

Seems to be nothing about this problem online.

Any help/suggestions greatly appreciated.
 

Answer:Ctrl+V shortcut pastes into FIND window instead of document

Just to check, the keys V and C come out propperly, not as F and R?

Hello, I've upgraded my os to windows10, then found that there is no new hp driver for my Q1859 monitor that works with windows 10.  The resolution is supposed to be 1366 x 768 - 60 Hz according to a little pop up that I get when I try any resolutions larger than 1280 x 1024.  I'm set at 800 x 600 now.  Everything is really huge and stretched out horizontally, and I have to use scroll bars to see the whole screen.  1024 x 768, and 1280 x 1024 make the text really small and I still have to use scroll bars.  Any suggestions?  Thanks in advance. VATrip

Answer:Can't find a driver for Q1859 monitor that works with Window...

Hi: I don't think it is the monitor that has the problem. I think you need to install a compatible graphics driver if one exists for your model PC. What is the full model number or product number of your PC? The product number can be found on the same sticker as the serial number.

For the last couple weeks my Symantec seems to catch a trojan during realtime protection almost every day. I figured I was fine as long as it kept catching them, but now I've got another problem.

When I try to start IE, either from the start menu, quicklaunch or the .exe in the folder I get "Windows cannot find 'C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again.

Well, the file is there.....so I don't know what's up.

Thanks for any help. I'd hate to throw this laptop out the window.

Why would the Find Files/Folders start showing many, many more files than it should? The returns aren't all matching the request and the lists go on forever.

Well, Yesterday I was browsing through my Window file (looking for a reticular file) and I noticed I had hundreds of files I hadn't ever seen. And there was about 15 of them that the letters and numbers where all in blue and they said something like "$NtUninstallQ309521$" and "$NtUninstallQ30987$" I mean the numbers where all different. I guess because they where different files. But, I had never seen them before. What are they and the other files that just appeared? Should I delete them too?

I keep getting a message after I bootup or reboot that says the following: "Files that are required for Windows to run properly have been replaced by unrecognized version. To maintain system stability, Windows must restore the orginal version of these files. Insert Windows Professional CD now"

Here's the deal, I haven't changed anything on my computer. Added or removed any thing.

So when I insert the Windows disk, it tell me that the serial number is not correct, but its the same (yes orginal CD) that I have had for years and the number has worked before.

But when I reboot and the Windows disk is in the CD drive, I dont get that error.

Anyone have any clue on what I need to be looking for?

Answer:I need to backup my files in Window 7?

You will need a seperate medium to back up your files to. I use an externel USB drive. I use a program (Second Copy) to back up selected folders at a time and date of your choosing. This ensures that a copy of all my data exista somewhere other then my hard drive. I also use this drive to house a disk image of Drive C that I write peridically.If you are determined to backup your files to DVD I think you will have to do this manually.

Hello,

I just reformated my computer 2-3 times because of browser crashing games crashing and bsod. I did a sfc/scannow and found out i had windows corrupted files so i reformated. I did it all from a windows xp profession to windows 7. I also did this in safe mode and didn't do any quick selections. I've done memory diagnostic and everything seems fine. I've also read in a few forums to download MSE and I have to do a scan and i get "Security Essentials isn't monitoring your PC because the program's service stopped. You should restart it now" and I did and it keeps bringing that up. All i have on this computer is AVG and some Utilities my motherboard CD gave me. Like easytune6 and realtalk for sound. I've had these crashes for sometime and the windows corrupted files feels like the reason since i tryed everything that I could think of. All my windows update installed perfectly and never gotten an errors. So any help would be nice Thank you.

Hi,I purchased a new Dell XPS 8300 in April 2011 and had issues with the mouse and keyboard freezing soon after boot up. The freezes would last about 30 to 40 seconds. The system processor is Intel core i7-2600 (8mb Cache, 3.4GHz, the ram is 12 gigs DDR SDRAM at 1333Mhz of ram and a 2tb drive. The OS is Windows 7 professional. Last Saturday night, 06/04/11, the Dell tech had me do a system restore and then told me Dell would contact me the next day to help me install the drivers. Dell never called so I had to call them back and spent over two hours reinstalling the drivers, etc. When the tech said he was done I asked him what about the Office 2010 Starter package dell bundled? He said once you do a system restore, whatever dell bundled is gone. I spoke to his supervisor and was told the same. Well, I sent Dell a 4 page letter that gave names, etc! Anyway, I am totally disgusted with their tech support as this was an on going issue from the beginning. I can't begin to tell you how many calls I made to Dell since I had the system for the freezing mouse and keyboard. So here I am asking for help. I noticed a folder called Windows.old and am wondering if I can recover the apps that Dell bundled from that folder?Thanks so much!

Answer:Can I recover files from Window.old?

That's very frustrating. Did the system restore fix the problem? The windows.old wouldn't contain any software. It would replace a previously corrupt file of the same name. Anyhow if you want a free office program that does the same thing, check out openoffice.org for a free download of the program. http://www.openoffice.org/

When I go to save a file on my PC a window opens allowing me to select the folder into which I 'd like to save the file, but for some reason the files already in that folder are not displayed. They used to be and they are shown up well enough in Windows Explorer.Why has it suddenly stopped showing me what is already in a folder? and how can I remedy this?

Answer:No files in save window!

Sometimes it happens that the file save dialogue is limiting the files displayed to those with a particular extension (*.rtf) for example. If there are no files with that extension in the folder, there might be files with a *.doc extension, but they won't be displayed.Take a closer look at the file save dialogue box. Look at all the drop lists available.

Hey geeks, Firstly I am sorry if I have posted this in the wrong thread section....I had a doubt while opening picture files(i.e jpg etc) in XP??
Is it possible to open the .jpg files in its own independent window in XP similar to Vista??
For example, Windows Vista can open multiple picture files in its own independent window rather than in the same window, which happens in XP. If possible can you please suggest me how to do it...any help would be appreciated.Thank you:wave geeks:major .....

Hey, I was wondering if anything important is stored in that folder and does it contain. I'm wondering because I use a program called ATF Cleaner to get ride of browser stuff such as history, caches, and temorary internet files. But there's also an option for deleting Window Temp files. Is it okay to delete the files in that folder?

Answer:ATF Cleaner and Window/Temp files...

Generally yes though some files are stored in the Windows Temp folder that may be needed.

Also, you don't need a program to delete those files as they can be removed by clicking Tools -> Internet Options -> Delete Cookies, Delete Files, Delete History

I think that you may have to do this:

Search - Have More Accurate Search Results
Right-click the Start button
Choose Properties
Click the button labeled "Customize..."
Scroll down while looking for "Search other files and libraries" (it has 3 options underneath this heading)
Select either "Search with public folders" or "Search without public folders". I don't use public folders, so I chose "Search without public folders"
Click OK
Click OK
It should work after this because if I choose "Don't search" instead of "Search without public folders" (or even instead of search with), then I can't pull up any .rar files with the Start Menu search.

Compressed files are the Windows Compressed Folders (.zip files, but only if they're a Windows Compressed Folder).

This is a real basic question and no response will offend me, because I am that stupid when it comes to this stuff.

I have realized that my life will be a a better place if I learn how to do some basic programming and get an understanding of how applications are assembled.

Of course, as soon as I try to run out of the gate, I run straight into a wall.

Question is:
Why does my DOS Window open and close (blink) when I run an executable file? Is there something that need to be configured so the command window remains open?

Otherwise there is no way for me to observe the outputs from simple print commands, unless I open the programs from the command prompt.
I am running Windows XP on a Toshiba Laptop.
When I try to run compiled java programs or C++ programs same thing.
