Executing the bat file without showing the cmd window?

Question: Executing the bat file without showing the cmd window?

I have a bat file closing a program - Digital Clock close.bat - containing:


Code:
taskkill /F /IM digital_clock.exe

How could I avoid this window to be opened when executing the bat file:

Preferred Solution: Executing the bat file without showing the cmd window?

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 the bat file without showing the cmd window?

In the first line of your batch file, try @echo off like this


Code:
@echo off
taskkill /F /IM digital_clock.exe

I have two DVD+-RW drives. Whenever I insert a disc into either one of them I get an Exporer window that pops up showing the files on the disc. I have already gone into properties on each drive and marked it for "take now action" on all file types but this hasn't stopped the problem. It's really annoying to have to close the window every time i put a disc in that's not blank. Can anyone help me stop this from happening?

Thanx!

Hi all, I don't know if this is related to Win10, or an issue that existed with my Win8.1 before. I just noticed it after upgrading yesterday.

So, my firewall just prompted me about an outbound connection attempt by a file (named C:\Windows\System32\SIHClient.exe) and I didn't recognize it. I found it using explorer, and it's unsigned; so I visited VirusTotal.com and tried to upload it... but from the file upload browse box in Chrome I can't see the file! Even typing *.* and open doesn't remove the "filter" and reveal the file. (I finally ended up copying it to desktop and uploading from there, but still don't know what the file does.)

Anyway... I'm puzzled. I thought that Explorer's "File View Options" (show hidden files, do not hide operating system files, etc.) were used throughout Windows once applied. Am I wrong? Should I suspect a virus or is this normal? What gives?

(P.S. As a side note... I wish MS and other developers would just sign all their files. I don't understand why they don't.)

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.

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?

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.

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'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.

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

> I did a bit of a search on this and it seems that this driver is not necessary for XP? Is that so?
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:

<HTML>
<HEAD>
<TITLE>Client</TITLE>
<META HTTP-EQUIV="PRAGMA" CONTENT="NO-CACHE">
</HEAD>

<PARAM NAME = "java_arguments" value = "-Xmx1024M">
</APPLET>
</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 have just built a new computer, using Windows 7 Pro 64 bit, however, I've noticed when I open Windows explorer, 3 out of 4 times it will continuously search for drives when opening up explorer and not show any drives that are installed. I've tried reformatting, using different hard drives, but the problem persists no matter what I do. I've reinstalled Windows 7 with only a single drive plugged in, tried different SATA ports, but this problem keeps coming back. The only thing I can think of is that the Windows 7 install disk is corrupted and not installing properly.

I've also noticed that once it starts searching like this, the icons wont display in any folder, although the file names will. Likewise, when trying to sort files by date, type, etc, they will not sort.

When this happens, I can easily type in C:\ to get to the drive without problem to access the drive but above problems with icons not showing, sorting, etc still is a problem.

Has anyone had this problem? Know of a way to fix this? I'm not looking forward to having to reformat again as I don't have the time to sit through and reinstall everything again after.

I am trying to remove empty folders using Remove Empty Directories. I know of a few that are empty, and just ran a test to see if RED would detect they were empty. Well, to my surprise, I am finding that RED shows 1 (or more) file in these folders (a JPG at 0.00 MB), but it's not showing up in the folder. Is there any way I can have these show up in folders so I can search for all JPG's and delete them? Example:


I do have "Show hidden files, folders and drives" checked under folder options as well.

Answer:File not showing up in folder,but showing up in Remove Empty Directori

Hi,

You could try running JPG Cleaner v2.6

I use this software on a regular basis. I'd suggest limiting it's use to only one problem folder on your machine as a test run.

Run the program with admin rights then from the GUI choose Add Folder then browse to your test folder. Additionally choose the option to delete Unknown Files and also untick the option to Create Backup Files.

Then choose Start and when the cleanup is completed there is an option to save a log file. Save the log file somewhere and have a look at it to view the results.

Additionally you could run the program again choosing the Delete Corrupt Files option.

If you're happy with the results - go ahead and add the other remaining folders or directories to be cleaned.

I've never encountered any problems using this software but as always before running any sort of cleaning product it's best to at least create a system restore point to fall back on and ideally have a system image backup handy.

I have a game in my pen drive that is splits second, my friend had given this pen drive to me, but windows explorer is showing that this drive is empty, i have checked it if it is hidden but still it's not showing after i had changed settings for hidden files, and i had checked the drive properties, it is showing that 3.07 GB free of 7.44 GB, please help me...

Answer:File folder is not showing in my pen drive, showing it is empty.

Hi,

The problem could be because all the data that was present inside the pen drive now have become system files by the virus. This is the reason why they are not visible even with the option “Show Hidden files and folders”.
To remove the problem this is what you need to do.
1. Go to Folder Options -> View tab
2. Make sure that your Show Hidden files and folders option is enabled.
3. Uncheck the option that reads “Hide protected operating system files (recommended)”

Now when you see your pen drive, you will find that your data is present there but in hidden form. There are 2 ways to unhide the data, either right click and uncheck the Hidden box or type in the following command in the command prompt
attrib filename –h –r –s
where filename is the complete location of the file.

Let me know if it solved your problem.

You'll need to be more specific.

Does the system have 2 user accounts? Are they ones that you created?

You could try setting up one of the accounts for automatic logon, and then if you need to logon to the other account, you would just have to logout of the primary account.

I know you say that default programs settings haven't been changed but have you made sure that whatever the file type of the attachment or song is, is associated with WMP in Default Programs-Associate a file type or protocol with a program?

Hi there everyone.

I'm experiencing a problem I've tried to tackle in numerous ways through the years (this has happened in Windows 2000 and, if I remember it right, in Win98 too).
The problem is that the directory C:\Programs keeps popping up on startup. No matter where I try to find the damn thing I can't. It's not in programs startup list, it can't be found in msconfig, and additionally it's not to be found in th registry (although i must say my skills in handling and searching in the registry are not exactly good). It seems to be a rare problem as I haven't found any page at all with Google touching upon this, and this forum hasn't got a single thread AFAIK.

Thanks in advance.

Answer:Programs window showing up on startup

Have you looked in HKLM\Software\Microsft\Windows\Current Version\Run
Or in HKCU\Software\Microsft\Windows\Current Version\Run to see if it listed in there? Also is there any bat files or scripts that might launch the window in either of these startups?

I hope you can help me. My wife had lost her Gmail password so I tried downloading a programme to recover it. (Didn?t work)

The first thing that happens is that a small window appears saying (from memory) ?.net framework 3.5 required to run this program?.

When I close this, I get a popup with the header 'Systemerror Ownz Jo0' and the message, ?it appears you have been infected by a virus-click OK to exersize?

If I close the popup, it opens a blank command prompt window,

And when I close that, Firefox starts and takes me to a site called Hackers Paradise.

This goes around in a loop as the windows are closed (apart from the .net window that appears to start the process off when it is closed).

Norton scan shows no infection. If I close the processes quickly in task manager, they vanish without trace until the computer is restarted.

Permission was asked for a start up item when the program was installing which I indicated ?quarantine?

there is still a copy of the downloaded zip file (gmail_cracker_setup) and another folder of the same name in the downloads folder

hi,
I have 2 problems
1. POP ups
2. IE showing same page twice in same window. For example: when i go to google.com it shows me 2 google pages one below other. This is very strange, never heard of this.

Both these problems started while i was surfing net. As I was surfing Windows defender warned me about adware virtumonde.A. I removed it through Windows defender.Windows defender still continued to show me
warnings(6-7 times) for virtumonde.A, but every tim it was a different dll so I was sure i have multiple affected files and that defender was cleaning up the infected files.

As this was happending I search net for info. about virtumonde.A which indicated of GetModule32.exe. I checked for running programs and saw
that getmodule32.exe was running, so i killed it and deleted it from c:\program files\, also all the registry entries for Getmodule32. Similarly also found vnrblock and removed it from my system. After this defender didn't gave any warning for virtumonde.A. But after this I started getting unwanted pop ups loading automated-sarch.com. Also my IE started showing

2 pages in the same window.

I have:
- IE 6
- Windows Defender with real time scanning on
- McAfee - Internet suite - also running

Sure something is wrong and my PC is affected but not sure how to get rid of this.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
J

Answer:IE showing 2 pages in single window

There is no point for us to try to help you at the current time. You are infected by a known spyware agent, with a probable trojan downloader.

I hope there's an actual answer out there!

I stupidly downloaded the newer Office my college offers, after I upgraded my hard drive. When I open any of my Word documents, they only show in half of the window- whether I've got a partial or maximized window. I've tried everything I can think of:

When I check/uncheck an option such as "view: ruler", it momentarily shows the fullscreen doc- then goes back to half;
when I split, then remove split, it'll show the full screen, but if I minimize Word, it reverts back to half;
zoom is 100%, and it's not a stupid error on my part; I've never had the issue with my old copy and use Word daily.

I've only found dead ends and broken threads, so far. I saw one guy mention that he remembered it had something to do with a combination of Office and Outlook (but the link was broken, and he did say that he was never able to find a permanent fix). I DID actually use Outlook this time around (which I've refused to do in the past). Has anyone come across this problem, and- better yet- found a way to fix it? I'm about ready to go back to my old copy, but it drives me crazy that I can't find an answer.

Thanks for any help!

i tried to install a game and during installation my system turned off and restarts and shows a destop for 2 seconds and after that shows a blue screen for few seconds again to restart and process goes on.and this cycle repeats in all modes including safe mode. i think windows vista has crashed. and there is no cd or dvd in dvd rom. i dont know why it has gone to infinite cycle of restart. do i have to reinstall windows vista again and if i install vista again does it mean i m going to lose all data in my hard disk. please tell me what to do ?

Answer:Window Vist Boots Again After Showing Blue Screen

sorry i dont quite know vista all that well, but after your pc goes past the POST, repeatedly press F8 until you get to a menu

(now this is where my knowledge is sketchy)..somewhere on the menu there should be something like, "disable restart on system error" or something like that, select that and that will let the bluescreen appear on your screen for longer then 0.000000001 seconds..

somewhere on that bluescreen *should* have details for what file is causing you greif - from there, well yeah we can go from there.

else - i would hook your hdd up to another pc as a slave, get any info you want off and yeah...

Answer:VHD created and attached, but not showing up in Computer Mgmt Window

When you attach the vhd there is a default read only option which is selected as default. I have found you often need to deselect this option. I'd prefer to leave it read only but you get what you are experiencing. As long as you don't write to the mounted vhd you shouldn't have any problems with a subsequent system image restore.

Since I built this computer in 2010 I've had a scheduled task which runs a VBS script to remind me to take my tablets each morning. Until the last few days, only one element was visible from this task, the message box spawned by the VBS script.

However, in the last few days, I also get a taskeng.exe window appearing at exactly the same time as the message box. The window is labelled taskeng.exe, has a VBS scripting host icon and the content of the window is pure black.

If I terminate taskeng.exe in Task Manager or click OK in the VBS message box, both the VBS script and that black window disappear.

I have no idea what might have caused taskeng.exe to only appear in this situation, because MSI AfterBurner also uses it to start the app during user login and it doesn't appear for that. Both processes are ones I've been using for ages longer than this problem.

Answer:taskeng.exe suddenly showing up as window when I run a scheduled task

Heh. I should have clued into the icon that taskeng.exe was showing.

Somehow cscript.exe had become the handler for VBS scripts on my machine. I definitely didn't do that.

Saving from programs, like word or paint, however, does show the tabs at the side.

I've tried changing the windows themes, and changing browsers but neither worked. Does anyone have any other ideas?

Startup window minimized to 1/4th of orig. size, clock out of order, showing 00.00, 3/3/2003, and battery can't be recharged
Hello everybody. This is my first posting on this Forum.
My problem:
-The Windows XP start-up logo on screen (with the dots underneath ticking away) is suddenly 1/4 of screen size.
-'Error' message re. clock (shows 00.00, 3/3/2003). When finally the computer is set up, the size is ok again, but the clock though is still at the wrong time and date.

I've tried rebooting with F8 (in safe mode) and also to make a 'System restore', but afterwards it goes back to these same problems. I've also tried F2 and set the clock to the right time, but it only helps during the time when the computer is on. When I turn if off, and then on again, the time is wrong again.

-AND suddenly my battery can't be recharged either. (Linked or a separate problem?) I am of course running my lapton on AC power.
I've read somewhere that when the clock starts messing up like this, it indicates a serious problem. I don't know if this is a software or a hardware problem, so sorry if I'm posting this under the wrong headline...

I've closed out both the players, and cleared all the recent history in their menu. I also close/exit any of thme from the start-bar, and there is no player put in the "Start-up" folder. The .mov file can be played but cannot be "move, rename or delete". All existing .mov file in harddisk, USB thumbdrive or external HD have the same problem. But when I use the same USB thumbdrive in another computer, it works alright. Other media files like .gif or .mpg have no such problem.Any help please

Answer:Quick Time Movie file cannot be moved by WIndow File Manager

I am using Windows 7 with 2007 Outlook. When I try to open a pdf attached file it opens up Windows Media Centre and not the file. I have Adobe 9 installed. Any ideas how I can rectify this.
 

Answer:PDF Attached file in Outlook Opens Window Media Centre and not the file.

Hi harrygas, welcome to the forum. Adobe Acrobat Reader will open .pdf files. Is that the Adobe 9 you are referring to?

The current Reader version is Adobe Reader X (10.1.2) and can be downloaded and installed over the top of the old version.

There are some excellent .pdf readers available in freeware online that are more flexible and many people prefer them, myself included. After uninstalling the Adobe Reader, I downloaded \ installed Nitro PDF Reader.

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: file not showing

Hi guys i'm new to this forum but I been a technician for about quite some time, however I'm stuck on this this problem I'm having with this computer and one in the past about recovinging "My Document Files" for the customer because thire computer had died. I had taken the HDD out of the computer hooked it up via USB adapter and when I went to look for the data it was not there, all other files were there except the "My Documents" and everything in it. So I kinda found out because both computers had a boot password I was unable to see these files because NTFS security features. So if there is anyone that can help me out with this in recoving the documents for this costomer it would be greatly appreciated. I know some people will say this is because security and privacy but I'm a tech and will be doing this ONLY for business perpose.

Thank You

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

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.

I cannot use all the letters of the alphabet to execute the macros for a
number of reasons. On... Read more

Answer:Executing a macro

Hello

Not sure I fully understand but perhaps a Select Case might be more appropriate?

Code:

Sub HyperlinkMacro()
Select Case ActiveCell
Case "Alliance Homes/Kelly's Landing/Barrie": Application.Run "HLinkAllianceHomesKellysLandingBarrie"
Case "Aspenridge Homes/Thornhill Woods Ph.4/Thornhill": Application.Run "HLinkAspenridgeHomesThornHillWoodsPh4Thornhill"
Case Else
MsgBox "Nothing was found"
End Select
End Sub
First couple started for you to give you an idea. I've also added a message box in case of errors but you can change that to suit.

HTH

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.

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.

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.
