Urgent help needed - how to revert a bulk image name process?

Question: Urgent help needed - how to revert a bulk image name process?

Apologies - the Urgent in this is only because I'm unsure whether any action may need to be done before I close down in about 6 hours or so.

Basically my problem began in Picasa 3 where I watched a short vid then decided to change the filename. That done I closed the preview & went back to the main program where I discovered that Picasa had somehow decided I wanted the entire folder of images renamed so it has worked through the 500+ images and renamed each one as Filename001, Filename002, Filename003 and so on which as you can appreciate is now causing somewhat of a major headache for me. It would take me a good few hours I would rarely have to go through and rename each one manually, so my question basically is - is there any method or program that can undo the action as I can't find any means of doing so from within Picasa. All other options I've found in my searches are mainly to achieve pretty much the same i.e. bulk rename as Name1, Name2 etc so are of little help.

Anyone any suggestions what else I could try?

Preferred Solution: Urgent help needed - how to revert a bulk image name process?

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: Urgent help needed - how to revert a bulk image name process?

I assume you don't have a Backup to fall back on. I use these two bulk renaming tools. You can see if they help. This is drop dead simple to use - http://www.fauland.com/af5.htm
This one has a more complicated interface but a couple other options - http://www.joejoesoft.com/vcms/108/

I've got a little problem.....i have a folder with a LOT of images (.jpgs).

I need to resize them ALL. The only way I can figure out doing this is opening them one by one in my image editor, resizing, saving, going to the next one.

With several hundred images, I would love to be able to do this in bulk. They all will be the same size when I am done with them.

Can this be done?

I've found quite a few programs that will resize images in bulk, but none of them will quite do what I'm looking for.

I need to convert a number of images with various sizes (175x25, 140x100, 110x50, etc.) into 250x250. However, I don't want to stretch the original image, just add white trim around the outside of the image to make it 250x250. Any software I've found will only stretch the image. I can't do each image individually, because I have over 30,000 of them to go through. Does anyone know software that would do that in bulk?

I'm working on a project right now but I've run into a problem. I have a CSV list of URLs for around 700 images and I need to download, resize, and rename them all. Manually this will take way too long for the project to be practical in any way by downloading each URL one at a time.

Is there a program out there that can take a list of image URLs and auto download them all? Would be a huge help if anyone knows of one. I've tried searching for one but all the one's I've found only work one URL at a time.

I'm new to these forums so if this is in the wrong forum let me know.

Hi!

I am looking for a FREE bulk image downloader program or chrome extension that will not crash my browser.

I want to use the program/extension to quickly download the pics I've shared on Facebook and Tumblr. Because it would take HOURS to go through and download each one by one.

I've tried a few extensions already, but each of them crashed chrome because they tried to save them by opening a "save as" window for each. So I need a program that allows you to save them into a folder or into compressed file/folder so that it doesn't crash my browser or my computer.

Any ideas??

ImageMagick makes it very easy from command line, and being command line there are no bells and whistles.

When installed and the DLL is registered you have all the commands available from command line, no need to start any programs to do graphics manipulations, tons of options if you read up on it on ImageMagick.org.

What you want would be as simple as opening a command prompt, go to the Dir with your pics, and type...
Code:
mogrify -format jpg *.bmp
...and that's all.

But as said, it can do MANY other things, if you read up on it.

Hi, I own a Lenovo G550 laptop preinstalled with windows 7 Home Premium. Lately, I've upgraded to Windows 8 Pro. Now that I want to revert back to Windows 7 I can't seem to find a way to do that as the recovery option simply doesn't work (the rescue button is inactive). I didn't format the HD partitions and the recovery partition (where the factory image is located) is still there. All  I did was inserting the Windows 8 DVD and clicking Upgrade - Windows did all the rest. How can I revert back to Windows 7 that came with the PC? Thanks, Ofir 

Answer:How do I revert back to the factory image after installing Windows 8?

hi ofircarmi,
 
Before you upgraded to Windows 8, did you created your Windows 7 recovery disc using this procedure? The reason I asked is because the One Key Recovery application & the OKR button will not work after you upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 8 as discussed here.
 
If you didn't created a recovery disc, you will need a retail Windows 7 Disc to downgrade Windows 8 to Windows 7 or you contact Lenovo Technical Support to obtain the disc. Support phone list here.
 
 
Cheers

The origin of the images was 'save-as' from the WEB, and they had peculiar names which included 'jpg/png' in the name, as well as in the extension; many images had a lengthy name made up of (code) numerous characters.

I've switched my laptop to safe mode so I can run a virus checker but now I can't log onto my machine. In safe mode my machine will not recognise my logon password that I normally use to connect both to mainframe and as a laptop.

I change to safe mode by Running msconfig, then selecting safe mode.

I've tried hitting F8 and selecting normal mode but it just keeps reverting to safe mode.

My systems guys are saying they cannot get my machine out of safe mode as there was no logon password loaded on my original machine build???

Can anyone advise me how I can restore normal mode before my systems guys wipe my C drive and start re-building my machine. Urgent help would be very much appreciated!

Answer:Windows XP Safe Mode - How do I revert to Norma Mode - URGENT HELP PLS!!

Hi Neil, Robert here, ok just a couple of questions to clarify things a bit:
1. are you able to get to your desktop in safe mode then get into your start menu and typing in the run menu the "msconfig.exe" option? (Basically backtracking what you did before the incident)

2. If not have you tried to boot back up to the F8 list and select the "boot up last known good configuration...etc" ...something like that.. option?

But more importantly this question comes to mind, what made it necessary to boot into safe mode on your desktop just to do a virus scan? But most importantly, was there anything else that you may have done during the time of this incident or immediately beforehand that might have otherwise caused your angst? I am simply trying to get a better understanding of what exactly happened as this will better determine a possible solution than to just proceed to an extreme one ie. reinstalling a fresh copy of Windows on your laptop. Let me know how it goes, if not, you can email me or post your questions if you have any problems at all. Good luck, Neil! =)

A few hours ago, my computer started running extremely slow. Every few seconds the computer freezes (i can still move the mouse around but not do anything else). So, ctrl-alt-del, i see the winlogon.exe is using 99-100% of the cpu. Apart from that, it is using about 3-4mb of memory whereas just after i reboot it uses about 700kb. Also, though i'm not sure about this, the process priority is set to High as well as the csrss.exe process.

This afternoon I was playing Battlefront 2. Everything was fine, but then it stated to jerk badly. So i quit to windows, and as i clicked on the button, the pc reset itself with a brief blue screen of death before going to black. I discovered all of the above after the reset.
I'm still, at this moment, trying to use my pc. It is proving to be virtually impossible.

I am desperate, i've been forum hopping (with difficulty), and everybody either talks a lot of junk/implies a virus/trojan etc...

I have AntivirXP Personal Edition, Xoftspy, Spybot S&D all updated with the current definition files. I ran all three and they came back with no results.

I suspect a virus, because i have no idea what else it can be, and i have no clue what sparked it off. I have measured a great deal of self-control not including expletives in this post, I will be greatly appreciative if someone could help me fix this.

Well, last night I was faffing around with the user accounts, and I deleted a couple. I don't know if this is relevant or not to the problem, but here it is;

I rebooted my computer this morning afer I made changes to the start up, I know it wasn't anything to do with anything I did in there, as I have done that many many many times before.

Before it gave me the logon screen a message box popped up saying that I could not be logged on as my password and domain or something were incorrect. So I clicked ok and it took me to the normal logon screen. There is normally an account for my wife, my sister in law and before I removed them, my two lodgers. The difference was in this that there was only a user account for Administrator. So I tried to log on, but whenever I put in a password I thought it was, it wasn't.

So I tried logging on without a password, and it says I cannot access my account due to account restrictions
Is there a way to fix this?

I know this subject has been posted on here before, but no one has given sufficient answers, so if anyone knows and wants to share the solution, please help me!

Thanks guys and gals

Welcome.

Download SDFix and save it to your Desktop.

Double click SDFix.exe and it will extract the files to %systemdrive%

Please then reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following :
Restart your computer
After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, tap the F8 key continually;
Instead of Windows loading as normal, the Advanced Options Menu should appear;
Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, then press Enter.
Choose your usual account.
Running SDFix in Safe Mode:

Can you boot your PC in safe mode? Something may be loading at the same time that causes it to crash.

Just keep hitting F8 after the BIOS loads and select safe mode.

Yesterday I left my computer on overnight to download some stuff and today all of a sudden the PC hangs (the LED constantly lights up) and the monitor doesn't display anything. Booting the PC causes the same problem and I can't even load to BIOS. Can someone help me?

For the record, the fans are whirring, the hard drive is making normal sounds, but there's no display and the LED is constantly on. I was thinking it's the graphic card, but switching to onboard doesn't help, neither did reseting the CMOS. Anyone? Please?

tonight i made the biggest mistake of my life by letting someone who i at first trusted and thought was helping me and then he took control of my computer via freeloop and f**ked everything. i was asking him to help me put a theme on my ipod and then he deleted system restore and a bunch of other things all quickly and left. i can access system restore but when it asks you to pick an earlier date you cant click on them. also the internet connection is screwed up, the internet is there, and im typing this using my nintendo wii running off a router which still works, but when you try to open the internet, it brings you up to dial-up, asking for a username and password. to reiterate, we obviously don't have dial up. Everything is much larger, and the resolution makes everything look pixelated. Last but not least he removed everything from my ipod touch, and it won't connect to itunes, due to an 'unknown error.' Lastly, on the main screen of my ipod there are no buttons. He stripped it. Any help of any kind, pretaining ti either my ipod or my computer would be greatly appreciated. i'm just a kid that made a bad mistake and a lapse in judgement. please help.....

Im a landlord, i have years of Books on my CPU. never been online with it ever. Completely isolated. After I finished monthly books it suddenly went off. Shut down without shut down.... Repowered nothing, checked power strip, nothing...

Immediately grabbed it and took to repair shop. Its a very important item, has ALL data from years back... plus its October and thats 9 months of this year entered... Backed up YES.... ON the same drive... LOL Dont laugh or scold me yet....

Repair shop says the fan stopped, causing the overheating of the motherboard and the Drive will not SPIN..... He can not retrieve any data....

WHAT is your suggestion and best options for this scenario.... Im all ears.

Hundreds or thousands of hours of data at risk.... I asked about removing the platter and reinserting into another drive.. said cant b done..

Thanks

Steve
 

Answer:Urgent fix needed

My initial thought is that would have to be one heck of an overheating to kill the HD along with the more vulnerable motherboard components. Is the shop reliable?

Have you tried the HD to another computer? That would be the simplest thing to confirm that it doesn't actually spin up. It just seems like too much of a coincidence that the HD has failed along with the motherboard. If you can wait for mail order something like this will make the connection externally but internal is not difficult.

If the HD really doesn't spin up at all, I don't have any suggestions. Professional data retrieval is extremely expensive ~$1000.

Question: Urgent Help Needed

So right now I have a Trojan. I am trying to get rid of it. Earlier I went into the WTM, and looked at my processes that I had running. What I am doing is going through all of the processes and looking up what they are, what they do, and if they could be a potential danger to my computer. I came across a program called SVCHOST.exe. I typed it in at the UniBlue process library, andI got mixed results. Apparently, SVCHOST is a essential program that is harmless, But, it seems that alot of Trojans and harmful things alike disguise themselves as SVCHOST. I currently have 8 different svchost.exe's running, with mem usage ranging from 3,000 kb, to 28,000. Do you think that I have a problem?

I tried to download something earlier (not porn, promise) but immediately after i pressed download, it redirected me to a porn site. At the time, I had AVG antivirus, but I uninstalled that and downloaded Avast! I ran the test and it did find a trojan, it also found a buch of spyware. I did what it recommended me to do ( being that i was unfamiliar with avast), and I moved them to the chest, but some of them werent able to go to the chest, i am not sure that one of them was the trojan though, but I am nearly certain because after I put the bad stuff in the chest, I chose to delete them, but, after I deleted them, I still have the Trojan. What the trojan is doing is when I try to get on IE, it says Blank page and tells me to download a fake antivirus. Obviously, I did not. Also, when I try to ... Read more

Answer:Urgent Help Needed Please!

boot the PC and press F8 continually until the boot screen arrives, if you look at the list of choices choose the one that says 'last known configuration that worked', or probably a more certain option is go for the restore to earlier date, choose a date before you messed up the registry and that should get things running again.
As a noob there are a number of things you need to know and some you will learn, you have just demonstrated one of Windows strict unwritten laws, never change anything in the registry unless you are absolutely sure of what you are doing and then make a back up of the registry before you start so any problems can be rectified.(actually you can just back up the one key you are going to change\delete by selecting 'export' from the right click menu, save it somewhere obvious and if things dont go according to plan you have only to click the .reg file a couple of times to import the key and data back where it came from.
hope you get sorted.

This 'Unable To locate Component' crap is driving me crazy. When I log onto my guest account it gives me this error.
Setup.50.exe cannot find comres.dll. That also happens on the new admin account I created. There's only one account that this doesn't happen to and it my orignal account but on my original account almost all the other programs gives me unable to locate component also such as MSN and others. I even tried to PC restore everything by inserting the emacines operating system disc. When I get to the loading part It gives me a blue screen with c0000135 unable to locate component In PC Restore???
I honestly need someone to help me on this asap.

Thank you

Question: Urgent Help Needed

Hi Guys, I hope to God that you's can help.

Heres the story, my computer out of the blue has just stopped loading. I will describe what is happening:
I will turn on the computer and it will load normally past all the BIOS stuff - then it will begin a 'chkdsk c:' saying that it needs to check this 'NTFS' file for consistancy.
It is always succesful with this check and then moves onto the the classic windows xp loading screen. That works fine then, BANG, it stops loading.... I don't think it is freezing as I can still move the mouse.
If I leave it for long enough it will come up with a diologue box saying something along the lines of 'Windows needs to be activated'. And this does not allow me to get past this blue laoding screen.
I then restart the comp, and it just goes through the same process.
Other info:
I CANNOT access SAFE MODE! It takes me to a log in menu saying my name, Phil and Administrator and if I click any of them I encounter this message 'Windows needs to be activated'.
I checked my BIOS page and posted the info on another forum (which wasn't too helpful if I do say so myself) and they said nothing with out of the ordinary with temperature etc.
If this helps, I did the day before these problems started when I turned on my comp it said there was no keyboard plugged in, this was a USB keyboard so I just swapped it for a old keyboard which wored a treat.
Also I had some minor problems with my monitor rando... Read more

Answer:Urgent Help Needed

Is this a new(ish) PC, OR have you recently loaded Windows ??? IF so Windows needs to be activated via Microsoft website, or it wont work after about 28 days from loading.
Am sure someone here can help if this is not the problem.....Good luck....

Question: Urgent help needed

Well, I installed the beta version of Windows 7 on my HP Pavilion a810n PC. It was good, but all my drivers were disabled. I went to revert back to Windows XP, since in the Boot menu it had the option now to revert to previous Windows. I went into it, and it opened the HP recovery. Now, I've had to do HP recovery twice in the past, but now, it looks way different. Now it just gives me options to go into a sort of command-promt type thing, where I pick a place and can implement commands. That's about all I can do. At one point, I typed in "FIXMBR", not knowing completely what it did. Now, when I start my computer back up, it goes into that same recovery type thing. How do I get back on Windows 7, or better yet, Windows XP? Also, I thought I should add, that in the restart thing, where it's the HP logo and at the bottom it says "press F10 for system recovery", the button no longer works, and I have to let it restart to go into recovery. I need the computer, ASAP, so the sooner you can help me, the better. Thank you in advance!

Answer:Urgent help needed

sounds like your os and recovery may be corrupted...Probably going to have to do a fresh install. If there is data you need on your computer about the only thing I can suggest(assuming you have another computer available) is to get an external hard drive enclosure. Put your drive in it, hook it up to the secondary machine and copy everything you need off of it.

im having major problems with my dell inspiron 1545 laptop. ill try be a s breif but as descriptive as needed. i recently carried out a full dell system restore due to the computer freezing. once the restore had been completed the laptop then played up ont the start up with a blue screen carrying out a system dump. once this had finished the laptop operated asif it was brand new?

It then downloaded some automatic updates when connected to the internet and i downloaded vlc media player and everything seemed fine. i then shut down the laptop once more.

on start up the laptop will not proceed past the windows error recovery page!!??!! no matter what option i choose, in any of the menus either by hitting F2 F12 or F5. non of the repair tools work or anything??

the laptop just processes the choice and temporarily reboots and brings me straight back to the windows error recover page.

So i dont know whats going on? is my hard drive still ok? its still saying i have windows 7 but wont load it!

do i need a recovery disk? re install windows?

im not sure, hopefully someone out the might have some sort of idea or advice that i can take to getting it sorted.

any suggestions are welcome

Kind regards

Brett

Answer:Urgent help needed!!!!

Welcome Bret,
Not much that I can do but take an educated guess. You had a problem which resulted in you making a restore. This resulted in a blue screen and the problem continued. It seems to be a hardware problem with the computer. It can be the hard drive; as well as many other problems.
Do you hear any beeps when you try to boot? Try with speakers on.

Question: Urgent Help Needed

I have Windows Xp. I ran into a problem last week with my computer and a nasty virus hit my system. (I forgot what it was) However, this thing would not even let me pull up my security software or download a new one under safe mode. Long story short... I did a system restore. Since then, my system is just not back to what it was. I did hit the backup file selection. All of my pictures are gone. My daughter is 9 and every single pic I had of her is gone, all of my coursework is gone, and I am just sick and don't know what to do.

I have tried to actually go back and restore manually but, it will not allow me to restore before the actual date that I did the restore.

Can someoone help me? Also, I have no sound coming from my speakers. I went into the control panel and it is not even picing up that there are speakers there. I plugged in my headphones to see if they would work and they are not working either. I cannot manually go into my control panel because it is not picking up anything there in the sound department.

Someone please help me retrieve my pictures and files... Please.... Can someone help me get my system back to normal??? Thank you somuch for anyone who can help me.

So, my computer had been on for quite some time. I leave it in sleep mode. Today, when I came back from school to use it, it seems as if the keyboard is not working for some resaon. Since the computer can only be awoken from pressing a button on the keyboard, it won't turn on. I do not want to restart the computer because there are some internet sites open which are very important for school, and if i restart it i may loose the links.

anyone know why my computer won't awake from sleep?
why is my keyboard seemingly not working?

notes: the keyboard has no lights on, no caps lock light etc. even when i press any button on the keyboard, there is no response.

anyone know how to get my computer to awake or get my keyboard to work?

things i have tried:
unplugging and replugging keyboard.
placing a usb into the computer hopeing it will awake.
placing a usb attachable mouse which i thought may awaken computer

HELP!

Answer:Urgent Help Needed!

Is the power light flashing on and off if so press the power button. See that brings the pc out of sleep. There is hibernate and sleep one you press the keyboard button to awaken the pc the other you press the power button.

Question: Urgent help needed

Dear Forum Members,
 
My computer seems to be heavily infested with something very unpleasant.  A lot (but not all) my of software is not working, or cannot be opened (e.g. Outlook) or comes up with the message "the item referred to by this shortcut cannot be accessed you may not have the appropriate permission"  I have looked at various on-line sites to find a solution, but haven't found much that addresses this problem specifically.  The things I have tried didn't deliver the desired help.  Any ideas, anyone ???  You'll have my eternal gratitude if this can be solved without major surgery (like re-installing my Windows 7).  Would it be helpful if I upgraded to Windows 10?  Or would Windows 10 become similarly infected with this bug?
 
By the way - this is a general question - if I were to upgrade, would I loose all my programs and documents currently on my laptop in the process?
 
Thank you for reading thus far.  I'm looking forward to hearing from you!  Kind regards - AndreasO
 

Answer:Urgent help needed

"...Would it be helpful if I upgraded to Windows 10?"  Upgrading to Windows 10 with your current OS having problems will probably not help solve those problems, such might simply "transfer" to your new OS.
"...if I were to upgrade, would I lose all my programs and documents currently on my laptop in the process..."
If the current OS is in good working order, then an upgrade normally does not do away with installed programs -- unless you make a few wrong choices during the upgrade/install process.  Documents - toss up, many have had no problems, some have had a few problems.
** After everything is fixed within your current OS -- before upgrading, make at least one if not two full images of your OS and data partitions onto at least one if not two external HDs **

Just an ISO file on the USB is not going to let you boot from it. You have to make a bootable USB first. You have to use something like Rufus: Rufus - Create bootable USB drives the easy way to do that.
If your MB doesn't have UEFI bios this one: Windows USB/DVD Download Tool - Microsoft Store is easier to use.

A while later i plugged it into my computer and it brought up its usual message "Plugging hi-speed usb device into non-hi-speed usb hub click this message to fix", but this time the hard drive did not show up in my computer and locked up my computer until i took it out of the usb port.

Question: Urgent Help Needed

Well today I just installed a fresh copy of Windows XP because I had been using 64-bit and the evaluation copy ran out. This meant that my computer was shutting down about every hour or so, forcing me to either purchase 64-bit or 32-bit. I chose 32 bit and installed it and everything. So after the installation and everything, nothing seems to be working right. My soundcard isnt working properly, when I try to play music it says "There is an error with your sound device" or something like that. The internet also isnt working. The only object on the desktop is the trash can...this never happened on my previous computer when I would re-install windows. It might have been because it was just a restore disk and I guess it included everything I needed to have my computer get up and running on that disk. Well I need some help because I am totally lost on what to do now. I can get drivers and whatnot on this computer and transfer them to my other one, but would that help my soundcard or anything work? What about the internet? What do I have to do to get that up and running? Thanks for the help and sorry if this was long, but I need your help.

Answer:Urgent Help Needed

ok, so to start, you need to reconfigure the desktop to be more like win2k. To do this, right click the start bar, and select properties. Then select classic start menu. This will get you setup for now.
Then you need to get drivers. The problem you are having is that you don't have the needed/correct drivers for your machine. Start by listing out the hardare you have installed, and we can post links, or you can find it your self...

Good luck

Question: URGENT HELP NEEDED

So I live at home with my parents and they've been getting weird emails lately from 'MAILER-DAEMON' and 'Mail delivery system' saying we've got undelivered mail. We've been getting hundreds of these over about the last two weeks.

Today we got an email supposedly from Westnet, our internet provider. It said our mail system was infected with a virus and we needed to call their number in the email.

That was about an hour ago. My mother (against everything I told her) has since called the number and gotten 'live support' via the phone. It involved basically the guy on the phone taking complete control over our computer: mouse, keyboard, everything; and showing my mother what needed to be done.

it involved completely reconfiguring our modem, giving them our address and installing 'malwarebytes' off a site called Ninite.

My mother is insisting he's just a friendly support person who's doing this all for free. Am I being paranoid? Because we have a decent amount of fairly sensitive information on that computer.

i have a problem with my laptop.....

windows defender says i have a vundo trojan, but doesnt seem to get rid of it. i have tried some removal programs and now Win Def doesnt throw up the message ( so i presume it has gone ) however, whenever i boot my laptop i get a Rundll error ( c:\Users\Kerie\AppData\Local\Temp\cbXOFwXO.dll The specified module could not be found ).

i have alo run spybot S&D and it gives me a virtumonde problem, but it never seems to get rid of it.

Q1 - are vundo and virtumonde the same or even related in some way

Q2 - when i run Virtumondebegone it doesnt find anything

Q3 - how do i repair the Rundll probs

please help me as i do not want to put this laptop online until i am confident that these problems are resolved.

thanks in advance

kerie
PS
my OS is Win Vista Home Premium
runing Spybot S&D and Nod32
