Eudora 7 fails to load in Win10

Question: Eudora 7 fails to load in Win10

Just installed Win 10.

Now Eudora 7 fails immediately with error message
The directory specified in the command line
Files
doesn't exist or is not writable.
I have no idea what this means or where to begin with this.

This despite Win 10 crowing upon completion of installation that "all your files are exactly where you left them."

Preferred Solution: Eudora 7 fails to load in Win10

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:Eudora 7 fails to load in Win10

I did a little research into this and found this possible fix:

"Thanks. You answer put me onto the correct answer:Copy all of the Eudora files from C:/Program Files/Qualcomm/Eudora to c:/users/sales/appdata/roaming/qualcomm\eudora. Then edit the registry HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Software > Qualcomm > Eudora > CommandLine and replace C:\Program Files\Qualcomm\Eudora\Eudora.exe with c:\users\sales\appdata\roaming\qualcomm\eudora\Eudora.exeI may not have my slashing tilted the right way but you get the idea."

I have to question why you want to use software that hasn't been updated for 6 years though. Could potentially have security risks.

Gday
I am now back in Oz and have just gone over to Win10.
Years ago, I was using Eudora mail but changed to Microsoft Outlook which is still OK. I wish to retain my old Eudora emails but need to changed them to my new pc. My old pc ran on Win 7.
How can I best and easily transfer my emails from the old pc to the new pc?
Should I install new email software just to store these old emails on the new pc
(Win10) rather than export the old emails to Microsoft outlook where there are
already a lot of emails?
Any thoughts

Hi, got new dell computer xps 8900 with win10 preinstalled.
I installed eudora to c: a solid state drive with Mbx files on drive D;
I can receive emails from my server but can not send--no error messages, just does not send.
Can anyone help?

Answer:eudora on win10 receives emails but does not send

The real question is, why would you want to use such an old piece of software. It has not been updated in many years

You're leaving yourself vulnerable as it has not been updated to the latest security practices. I have seen some people mention emClient but personally I switched to Gmail once I started using a smartphone.

Hi guys!
Haven't received the W10 pop up notification yet, although I have reserved (UK) so out of curiosity I was checking win update for any recent updates for my 8.1 machine and after various successful security updates and a restart I was then surprised to see 'Downloading Windows 10' when I checked again. However, for over an hour now an update- which is only 3.9mb fails not allowing me to update anything else.. according to the update info this small update is an 'anti malware' update from March of this year- KB3025417 and is listed as 'important'... the update install list even has 'update to Windows 10 Pro' listed as failed, reflecting my multiple attempts..
I've just restarted the same 'Windows 10 download' via Win update and its saying 'Getting set up files..' and seems to be taking considerably longer than it had in the past attempts.. could this be it finally, regardless of the failed Win defender update??
15 minutes gone so far...

Answer:Win10 update fails- 3.9mb file 'KB3025417' fails every time... help!

can someone please help me here pleeeeease? no Win10 luck at all... now im getting error '80244019' and cant check for updates... the original anti-malware update from march still wont install. i have run a malwar scan and its 'clean' no W10 popup yet. its failed about 20 times now. help!

Here is the list of the problems in order of which I noticed things going awry:

1. My Firefox browser will re-direct my google searches to a new Firefox window pop-up with "google-analytics" in its address bar, but would never finish loading the new popped-up window. Firefox would also re-direct and never finish loading my google searches by opening a new tab with a "directdlr.com/....." in its address bar.

2. Microsoft Office 2010 applications don't open, instead a "DW20.exe" and a "DWWin.exe" replicates itself an infinite number of times in my processes, maxing out my CPU.

3. My anti-virus applications (Spyware Doctor, Microsoft Security Essentials, avast!, malwarebytes) won't update, and therefore won't run or scan. Firefox also won't load various anti-virus sites, such as this message board.

4. Other applications crash directly upon opening them (VLC Media Player)

Solutions that I've tried:

1. Resetting my router. I'd read somewhere online that doing this would solve the problem. It did not.

2. Trying to restore from a restore point. I opened System Restore, but the restore points were all very recent and within the timeframe of infection.

3. Un-installing Microsoft Office 2010 and re-installing. System won't let me un-install.

Not long ago (a week and a half or so) I was playing Payday 2 and my computer froze, I turned off my computer to restart it and could not load my computer past a pre-loading windows black screen where the mouse was not showing. I then tried booting my computer in various ways (safe, with and without networking etc) and they worked, however I believe one of my drivers failing to load was the reason for my "Windows Normal" startup to fail. I eventually decided through, I then looked at using the system restore point function in order to hope for some success. The system restore function when I restored to; a week ago, two weeks ago, did not seem too alleviate my issue much, it did however allow me to load windows but almost immediately after using the machine for 2-5 minutes I would have a frozen screen again. I then eventually decided to just factory reset the machine out of desperation, the factory reset eventually happened successfully and I was able to load windows and login into my new user successfully, as I learnt that I had to reinstall my graphical drivers I then attempted to put in various CD's in in order to install these drivers, eventually when I figured out the order of CD's that I needed to install for my games to load properly, I then resumed my activities on my pc (such as gaming, browsing etc).

I just got a new computer and downloaded eudora 6.1. I want to transfer my address book from my old computer (and eudora 5.1) to the new computer. I followed the instructions in the eudora knowledge base, copying my old NNdbase.txt and NNdbase.toc files into the Eudora 6.1 folder. It must not be in the correct path, because this didnt transfer the address book. Can anybody give me detailed directions of what I need to do to make the transfer work? Thanks

Great joy would be known here in Denver if I could fix my Eudora. My Eudora 5.2 worked fine. I upgraded to 6.0 and it started crashing. I have Windows XP. It crashes when there's been a delay since opening the last email. I click to open a new email and it crashes. I downgraded back to 5.2. Still does it. Eudora says its not their application problem. Any help, o great ones?

I am trying to send email from TWO DIFFERENT accounts on a Windows 7 64 bit. I am running as an Administrator and always have been. I have already quintuple checked all the SMTP server settings on both accounts in regards to SSL, User Name, etc (neither are on Port 25). I can send through the Cox website email but I want to use my own local email. I thought it was them, but then I got an account with a different company I am doing work for and I also cannot send with their server (also correctly configured).

I have added Eudora 7, Eudora 8 and Thunderbird to my allowed programs on the Windows Firewall. I can receive email from both accounts on all three programs, but none of them will mail anything out. I am getting the message "The message could not be sent because the connection to SMTP server mail.and-mag.com timed out." or the same one with my Cox SMTP server name (smtp.cox.net).

I have Eudora 7 set up on an XP system back home on the Cox account (I am living away for work ATM). I called my wife and had her read me back all the settings and set mine to be exactly the same. Hers works, mine do not.

I am not on my own ISP for internet access, I am using the internet that my landlady gets because it is included in my rent (and also because Cox does not service this area). It is wired internet so my laptop is sort of a desktop for now. The ISP my landlady uses is Comcast, but I don't think that should make a difference.

Answer:Cannot send email with Eudora 7, Eudora 8 or Thunderbird

Phlimm, welcome to the windows 7 forum.

Could you put a screenshot of your Eudora for the mail account you want to get to work with comcast up on a message.?

Of course you can scrub the userid if you wish. to make sure that spammers won't get to you.

you do use port 2525 or 587 for your smtp server?

Upgrade of Win7 HP laptop -- not usual failure code. Upgrade done through Windows Update (copy was reserved). Gets to 24%, restarts, bring up Recovery screen, fails with 0xc0000f -- a required device isn't connected.

Only one physical drive in the laptop -- works fine under Win7.

Have seen threads about problems with System Reserved being too small for Win10 (200MB for Win7 vs. 450MB for Win8). Tried shrinking C: and resizing System Reserved.

Repeats above problems -- plus, leaves laptop in weird mode with Win10 partially installed, a new Recovery partition, and nothing working (meaning, Win7 won't boot anymore).

Am now trying option of installing from DVD, after merging boot stuff into C: partition and removing System Reserved -- figuring that if Win10 requires a System Reserved partition, it knows how to create one the right size.

Anyone else run into this? Anyone know how to work around this problem? Please don't suggest a wipe and new install -- I've got too much on this laptop to spend hours hunting down CDs and product codes to have to reinstall everything from scratch.

Answer:Win10 upgrade stops at 24% fails with 0xc0000f

MBR or EFI

windows 10 uses 3 MBR and 4 UEFI partition

16MB reserve (GPT only)

Hi
Checking update history shows no errors, just the update waiting to be installed.
Here's what happens: update goes all the way through to the end, then it hangs with a black screen with the little dots going round and will sit like that for as long as I'll let it. There's no hard drive activity during this period.
When I eventually get bored of waiting, I do a hard reboot and the previous version is reinstated.
Any ideas how to move on from this?

Hi All, I just called Microsoft India and they said if I use the Window 10 Upgrade System Tray Icon to do the download then it will auto-resume with no data loss if the internet connection fails. She said if I try to download Win 10 Upgrade some other way then it does not have auto-resume and I'll lose the data and have to start over.

Just wondering if anyone can confirm this? Thanks!

I have 3G cellular internet here in India. It is unreliable and slow and often drops out. So auto-resume is an absolute necessity if I want to successfully upgrade to Win10.

Make sure you are running the creation tool as Administrator and also that your systems region and the downloads region match.The Windows 10 upgrade works on Windows 7 (all licenses) via Windows update - pull in the latest updates and you will see the upgrade adviser appear in your system tray. Use it to upgrade and it should work.

Hi All.

I am a Mac user, but bought a PC on craigslist, that had windows Windows 7 on it. I am trying to upgrade it to Windows 10 and it is failing every time. I have downloaded the update package and installed that way and it fails at 32% of total install, approx 12% of installing drivers and features. I have done quite a bit of reading on the subject so i have tried the following:

-removed all unnecessary hardware
-rolled back drivers
-update to newest drivers
-removed antivirus
-removed all aftermarket software
-attempted upgrade by installing via flash drive and by disc

there are probably others that i cannot recall in my frustration.

i have read about a video card causing issues. The mobo does not have onboard video and this machine has a GeForce 8600 GTS SLI, without the 2nd card installed.

not sure if it is worth buying a cheap card to install to see if that is the issue...

i am sure i will recall other specifics once we start some conversation here, but i would greatly appreciate your help. My intent is to donate this machine so i want to ensure it is working properly so i do not have to offer free tech advice in the future that i am not qualified to give.

Thanks in advance and Happy Holidays

Hi All,

I plan to get a new Win8.1 laptop soon (I would rather get one with Win10 but they're not yet available here in India). My plan is soon after I get the Win 8.1 laptop to download and install Win10. Here in India the 3G cellular internet is slow and unreliable. I'm scared that if I try to download Win10 it will fail and I'll have to start the download from the beginning.

Someone told me that the Win10 download includes the ability to auto-resume so that if a download fails it can re-start from where it left off once the internet comes back. Is that true? I need to get confirmation on this before I get my new Win8.1 laptop.

If Win10 download really does have auto-resume capability then I can do the Win10 download and resume as needed if the download fails. without losing data.

Please confirm that Win10 download has auto-resume capability so downloaded data is not lost. Has anyone directly experienced a Win10 download re-starting from where it left off after losing internet connection?

Thanks,

Answer:Win10 download have auto-resume capability if internet fails?

No auto-resume that I'm aware of. I've not seen anyone mentioned it in any of the forums I spend time on.

Is there any place you can take the laptop to do the download more reliably? If so, use the MediaCreationTool to download and create an ISO or bootable flash drive to upgrade from: Windows 10 - Upgrade Installation

I have had no problems with win10 for 3 months, then 3 days ago I could not get to the start page, I can only go to "desktop"
I can use some of the apps on the taskbar, but the internet is disconnected, but under "wifi" I am connected to the router?
I was on the chat line at Microsoft support for 2 hrs, they could not cure it. so I downloaded win10 to a dvd and did a clean install, but its the same??????HELP

Answer:win10 will not load

Hi, it sounds like you have a problem with ethernet, but your WiFi works.
Not sure quite what you mean by "I could not get to the start page" - do you mean you could not launch the Win 10 start menu?

Noted you have done a clean install.

Ethernet:
- hardware problem?
- I might have suggested a driver issue in an update- which would probably be unusual for such a driver (usually graphics or sound drivers present problems e.g.) but you've tried a clean install.
Have you tried right clicking the internet icon in the system tray (task bar) and 'Troubleshoot Problems'?

Start menu etc
When you did the clean install, did you accept updates or did you install exactly what was on your installation medium?

If you accepted updates to be applied during the installation, that might explain what what you see now is what you had- problem.
If your installation medium is build 10240 (the 'RTM' build), try again, but without updates.

And before trying, run chkdsk on your C drive/partition just to be sure.

Hi Guys and Girls,

My old Sony Vaio notebook (model PCG-52G1) running XP Pro has suddenly refused to boot up. I get the windows opening page but then after that i get this message:-

STOP: C00000139 (Entry Point Not Found)
The procedure entry point FlSSEtvalue could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.dll.

I am not techy and have no idea why this has happened but i would like to get back access even if its to transfer important information into a new notebook!

All the best and here's hoping!

when windows finds the previous instalation and offers to repair,then repair

I am using Intel i3-530 on Intel DH55TC Motherboard. The motherboard supports RAM with highest frequency of 1333MHz. However, I was told that using a higher speed RAM wouldn't hurt the system. So, today I bought a Corsair Vengeance 4GB 1600MHz RAM. The RAM is detected in BIOS, but OSes fail to boot after that. Even Ubuntu throws Kernel panic error while booting. Could anyone help me with the BIOS settings required to run this memory stick?

Answer:OS fails to load when using new RAM

Hello Mycroft mate as a general rule running a higher frequency RAM stick in a machine that runs that only supports the lower one the frequency will revert to the frequency of the new stick will be maxed to what frequency your machine will support. So I think whoever told you could run a higher frequency RAM stick in the machine should have known better and to get you to check out the supported RAM speed before you went out and got the new RAM.
If possible I would get the supplier to change it for 1333 (there really isn't much to be gained from 1600) and the extra RAM will still make a difference to your machine simply because the system has more to use and therefore less bottle knecking - in other words the CPU can load more faster if it has more empty RAM available.

ie Tip a bucket of water through a 1 inch outlet funnel into another bucket and it fills quite nicely in say 5 minutes - now take a funnel with a 10 inch outlet and the second bucket fills in no time at all - the first bucket is the CPU and the second bucket the RAM the difference being there is more channels for the data to flow through even though it might be the slower speed RAM

You can see from this Intel? Desktop Board DH55TC the board only supports 1333 max - you can install a faster RAM stick but why bother?

So for example the 1600 you have put in should only run at 1333 if the machine specs say max 1333. The other problem could be that the new RAM stick is bad.

To see about RAM this might gi... Read more

Desktop PC with Win10 was working fine until I received the anniversary update. Now, when I load the computer, it will go to the login screen but immediately either turn black, or flashing blue screen. No register of any keys, ctrl alt delete, etc. All attempts at repair have been fruitless. I've talked to 4 different reps through support, created multiple ISO bootups on my USB drive for Win10 AND 8.1, could not get them to work. Tried both Custom and Update installs. Custom install yields this message: "We couldn't install Windows in the location you chose. Please check your media drive. Here's more info about what happend: 0x80300024." Startup repair doesn't work. Windows 8.1 CD doesn't work. Sometimes when I load, my ASUS screen will say something like "repairing startup X%" but once at 100%, it just stops there and nothing else happened. I read on these forums it can take awhile so I left it on for 24 hours. Still at 100%, no changes, nothing fixed.

Answer:Windows xp fails to load

Huh?

Okay first, what is the exact spelling of the file it is failing to load, and what is the exact text of the error message? At what point in the installation process does this happen.

One reason installs fail is because the CD is scratched, dirty, etc... Sometimes making a copy of a damaged disk will work. The copying process "fixes" the bad data before it gets burned to the new disk.

Also, a bad optical drive will mis-read and corrupt data during an install. Changing out the optical drive might fix the problem.

Hello again - this place worked last time so I thought I would try again... here is my problem:I use a computer designed for a visually impaired person. The PC (running XP Professional) automatically loads JAWS For Windows (a program (JFW) which 'reads' what is going on (web pages, Word documents, keystrokes) so she can tell what is happening) which appears to run normally. HOWEVER when OPENBOOK (a Text scanning/'reading' program) is loaded, I get errors regarding SSILEXE.EXE not being able to load, which is a speech synthesizer designed to coordinate bothw JFW and OPENBOOK so they can 'talk' without both talking at once. I followed Freedom Scientific's directions (they are the makers of both these programs) to re-expand the AUTOEXEC.NT, CONFIG.NT and COMMAND.COM files from the Windos master disk to the C:\windows\system32\ directory, but the problem keeps coming back. (The only other error message I remember is something about not being able to "load a 16-bit program" or something like that.)Things I have noticed: a Sheild (looks like a MS Update shield) which says 'Downloading Updates 0%' (but I don't think it's really doing that) that pops up when I start Windows, JAWS runs fine, but trying to open OPEN BOOK takes a LONG time to load (and I get the error message about the speech synthesizer not being able to load) - if I try to load OPENBOOK while Norton Protection Center is checking the system this REALLY bogs down.

Not sure if this is your problem, but it could well be. FSX can only be used on one machine, it checks its self with Microsoft. A new OS may be giving the wrong info. In which case you might need to contact Microsoft by phone.You may find more info at the following forums:- click here click hereI used to use FS9 but found my machine would not cope with FSX, so gave up on it.

WIN 7 X 64 fails when trying to load MS updates. I see lots of users have the same problem and have tried many of the suggestions that I found on the forum. I have Malwarebytes and MS essentials installed.

Security updates for MS.NET are successful as are Definitions for MSE, the Bing Bar updates and even updates for Office 2010 (even though it is not loaded on my computer) but none of the Security Updates for Win7 x64 based systems will load. Every bootup for weeks it says ? you have 37-40 updates? If I tell it not to update, sometimes, somehow, it does it any way and in the middle of my word processing a box pops up that is counting down to a reboot. If I don?t walk away it just shuts down in the middle of my typing.

If I ignore the ?updates available? it changes my log off box from ?shut down? to ?load updates and shut down?. If I don?t pay close attention and change the default back to ?shut down? each time I get stuck loading all the same updates that didn?t load the day before. Dirty pool.

Of course if I tell it to load updates it will finish and then wants to shut down. During shut down it spends a very long time loading ?definitions?? Then when I reboot it spends even longer trying to load updates. I must walk away. This ties my computer up for a very long time and then always has to run ?start up repair? to get the PC to boot after loading updates. I walk away again.

Hi, Everyone,
How are you? I have been running Windows XP, Service Pack 2 on my computer for several years now. Last night, my computer froze for the first time in over half a year, so I restarted it and nothing seemed to be wrong. After about 15 minutes of using it, it froze once again. After restarting it the second time, however, it showed me the screen that says I could choose to restart in the "Last Known Good Configuration," in "Safe Mode, or to "Start Windows Normally."

If I chose the non-Safe Mode options, it would start to load Windows (with the Windows XP screen and the blue bar running under it), and then restart itself when the blue bar runs for the third time. For the Safe Mode options, it would load partway and then restart again.

Can I do something to fix this? Is this a hard drive problem? I tried unplugging everything except for my monitor and hard drive, but the problem was still there. Please help! I am using a library computer to type this and will wait until I can find a resolution, then go home and try it.

I just came home for christmas and my parents showed me that their computer is failing to boot.

It posts normally, runs the windows splash screen, and then comes up to a black screen with a mouse cursor and hourglass, then 30 seconds later to just a mouse cursor - it can sit for an hour and never loads anything else. In safe mode, any type, it does the same thing but with the version number across the top and 'safe mode' in each corner.

In any mode there is no taskbar and no response from the start button, right clicking or ctrl+alt+del

I have tried, after making a backup of course, replacing explorer.exe and taskman.exe as well as the entire system and system32 folders(except config in system32 which is protected). I have loaded the hard drive in my own computer and it does the same thing. I ran scandisk on it while it was in my windows pc and it didn't tell me anything. The drive is divided into 3 partitions and I only scanned the C drive.

This is my parents computer and I do not have a hardware listing, it is relatively new but not high end, I can look for model numbers on anything that is relevant.

I have slaved the drive into another computer and backed up any data, I am just trying to avoid a full reformat and having to reinstall all the software.

I have a very odd problem at the moment. As of recently my desktop fails to load anything except the wallpaper on any user.

Background:
I've recently acquired a Trojan.Vundo.H and have been attempting to get rid of it. I found it with Malwarebytes anti Mal-ware. I've attempted numerous times at deleting the files in both safe mode and regular mode, but the virus still comes back.

I then attempted to locate the files manually. There was a single .dll file and then three registry entries (I would post then but I'm in the middle of a full scan on my computer that is infect so I shall do so when that is finished). In either mode and using cmd all were unable to be deleted. I then ran a virus scan using Avira and it found the .dll file but was unable to delete it. After a system restart I went to check to see if the file was still there and it was. However to my surprise, Avira detected the infected .dll file and was able to remove it. I then rebooted my machine and noticed the .dll was gone but that still left the three registry entries. I began to scan with Malwarebytes anti Mal-ware and it said the .dll was still there, although after manually looking for the file I could not locate it.

So then I began to attempt to delete the three registry entries. I tried going in safe mode, editing the permissions, anything I could find online to do, but nothing worked. I then backed up the registry and set a system restore and then ran ccleaner.

(on a side note, what do you use - besides an eraser - to clean the contacts on your AGP or PCI boards?)
 

Answer:msgina.dll fails to load

The file has something to do with Winlogon. Look HERE for some info on this. Also, a search of MSGINA on GOOGLE provided a wealth of info on why you are having your problem.

To clean contacts, I use Ethanol obtainable from a electronics shop, maybe Radio Shack It's the oils from your hands etc etc that can cause contacts to erode.

Answer:XP FAILS TO INITIALISE ON 1ST LOAD

Start the computer. The computer begins processing a set of instructions known as the Basic Input/Output System (BIOS). What is displayed depends on the BIOS manufacturer. Some computers display a progress bar that refers to the word BIOS, while others may not display any indication that this process is happening. As soon as the BIOS has finished loading, begin tapping the F8 key on your keyboard. Continue to do so until the Windows Advanced Options menu appears. NOTE: If you begin tapping the F8 key too soon, some computers will generate a "keyboard error" message. Please restart and try again. Using the arrow keys on the keyboard, scroll to and select create boot log.Then Start Normally...after the boot fails follow the advice above and choose Safe Mode Have a look at th bootlog.txt file on the C drive the final entries are nomally the fail. If so try going into Services and disable whatever is causing the problem...and/or any services you dont need. click here

My windows vista home premium 64 bit sp2 4gb ram Medion system has stopped my device driver for my dvd-rom (HL-DT-ST DVD Ram GH22NS40) from working properly (having previously working well for 2years).

For the last 2 days I cannot get my Youtube channel to load properly. It seems to stick on something called "s.ytimg.com". Is anyone else having this trouble at the moment?

As 67 people have looked at this but not one has replied, even to tell me that I'm an idiot, I feel rather ignored on what is my first outing on this forum. Perhaps my question is too banal.

Anyway, in the hope of receiving some sort of response here's a more detailed description of the problem:

I use Firefox with Noscript and Ad Block Plus.

I have a 3 mobile broadband connection (which has worked well enough since I got it) and before Friday I had no problems with Youtube.

When I try to load my channel on Youtube everything zips along nicely until it comes to "transferring data from s.ytimg.com". Then it just hangs. And Hangs. I have left it for 40 minutes or so and nothing has moved.

If I selectively disable "ytimg.com" in Noscript everything loads but there is no video to play.

Evidently s.ytimg.com is a perennial nuisance because it is mentioned in many other forums. Solutions suggested include putting extra lines in the hosts file (tried it. No good). Removing lines from the host file (couldn't because the line was not there) and changing DNS server.

Does anyone here have any new wheeze to suggest?

Apologies if this is in the wrong section, I am new here.

In fact, perhaps there should be a section just for s.ytimg.com and its attendant miseries.... Read more

My issue is a little different though, my PC will lock up, and when I restart it'll load Windows, and then just go to a black screen like you described.
If I let it sit for 10-15 minutes it'll BSOD and restart and work fine though.

Ill try to make a long story short. Bought a Dell Precision 470 that was two years old from my ex boss. I ran the computer the whole time and it never once gave me a single problem. Upon receiving the computer i found that he ran a few registry deleting programs and because i know he doesn't know how to do anything i feared he did something wrong.

I in turn decided to format the computer. I am running a RAID 1 set-up (mirror) on two 250GB drives. I format the raid array first and rebuild the array then install OS which involves obviously formatting the hard drive and then install drivers reboot then what software pleases me.

The software i run is pretty basic, office 2003, illustrator, photoshop, itunes, mozilla, norton and a software and driver for my business which happens to be sign making. Now the only software thats different on there is the signmaking stuff. We use to run a Prog called signlab and now i use something else. apart from that the general use of the computer is about the same as it was the two years previous.

Every 4-6 weeks the computer decides to stop loading. Always after being shut down normal and properly. It will get to the Windows preloader screen where the three boxes just sit there and slide back and forth over and over essentially until i turn the box off. I can't for the life of me figure this out. the hard drive and information is completely in tact, what seems to be missing is the os software. for the longest time i was not able to g... Read more

Hello:

Let me begin by stating that I will donate $100 to Tech Support Guy if someone is able to *successfully* solve my problem.

First, some general info on my computer:
* Dell Latitude D510 Notebook (purcahsed in January of 2006)
* Windows XP Home - SP2
* 2GB RAM
* 80GB 5400RPM HDD
* Pentium M Dothan, 1.86GHZ, 2 MEGB

Second, a little background on the events leading to the problem:
* I'm a heavy Internet user (about 16 hours per day of blogging, social media stuff, web based email, downloading music, files, video, etc.). Typically, I leave my computer continually running for several days at a time. Last week (Jan 08), I rebooted my system after about 3 days of continual use and this is what happened, and is still happening (step by step guide)

1) I turn on my computer and the computer begins to boot normally, from the Dell logo to the Windows XP logo

I'm trying to fix a Lenovo 3000 N200 Model 0769 with a pentium dual core processor, a WD 160Gb #WD1600BEVS-08RS hard drive, and 2Gb RAM running Windows XP sp3 Home.  Could not find the restore CD, but have a copy of the OS on CD.A few months ago, the system crashed while I was using the computer and would begin this endless loop of trying to restart windows and then failing.  I suspected a failing HD, so I tried to put the drive into an external enclosure and plug it into my desktop PC.  It was not seeing the drive, so I bought a tested one (same model) from the internet.  Later, I was successful in bringing the OS back up again and immediately began copying files to a backup drive.  Every so often, while copying image and video files, the OS would crash again and I'd restart successfully. I suspected corrupt files or bad HD sectors.  Eventually, it quit loading Windows altogether.  I received the purchased replacement drive, however, when I plugged it into the laptop, it didn't seem to find it and I guessed that it had not been formatted yet.I took it into work where we publish a software database and plugged it into the Windows 7's mother board SATA plug and successfully detected and formatted the new drive.  I also plugged in the "failing" drive, which it detected  and ran a scan on it, automatically detecting and fixing any bad sectors.  It seemed to complete successfully and when I plugged th...

Today I had a system restore done on my PC, all my data was saved and it's all in the original hard drive, apart from the files in the windows.old folder that I've moved to my new hard drive.

Anyway, I need to install all my programs again, so I tried using the iTunes application I from my program files, it didn't work. I got the message:


Quote:




iTunes setup.exe is not a valid Win32 application




I then downloaded a new exe from the iTunes site, I made sure it was the correct version for Vista, and I got the same message.

A final suggestion online was to use the command prompt:


Quote:




regsvr32 / i SHELL32.DLL




The only thing this changed was to give me a different error message telling me I didn't have enough physical space, which can't be true because I just had a new hard drive installed today.

Any help in getting iTunes working would be very appreciated!

This description is fairly long. I went into as much detail as possible because this problem just came out of nowhere.

So I get on the computer one day and everything is cool. I rearrange some music, uninstall some software that I never use and surf the web. While I was adding several hundred music files to my iTunes I ran into an error that said I didnít have access to write to the C drive. iTunes stopped importing the music halfway through at this point. I selected all my music again and tried once more, this time it worked fine. This happened a few times before I was able to get all my music in. Iím thinking that this may have something to do with my boot problems since I had never experienced this error ever before. Itís probably the only peculiar thing that happened prior to my problem so I mentioned it.

Lastly I run disc clean up and Spybot: Search & Destroy. I updated my AVG AntiVirus and avast! and restart after it asks me to. I am then confronted with this crap.

Irregardless of the way I turn the computer off, it boots back up with the screen that informs me that Windows did not load properly.

Answer:MMC fails to load event viewer in RTM

After typing this I found a mmc.exe.config file that was forcing the version of .net.   Renaming the file fixed my problem.
You rock!  I spent a long time trying to figure this one out.  An application (Peachtree accounting) installed the .net 1.1 framework and hosed many of my MMC snap in's including event viewer, task scheduler and IIS 7 admin.
I looked in my system32 folder and sure enough there was an mmc.exe.config file that had the supported runtime section set to "v1.1.4322".  I couldn't seem to edit the file to comment out that section, vista wouldn't let me save it, but it did let me rename it to mmc.exe.config.BAK and sure enough everything started working again.  I'm guessing these problems with mmc and snap in's in Vista are all related to apps that install the .net 1.1 framework and windows vista's inability to protect that mmc.exe.config file.
 
Cheers to you!

A couple of days ago, my genius spouse left his laptop once again in a precarious situation sitting on a table near an open window during a rain storm.

Regardless, since this time, not shockingly windows wont load properly and im hoping that someone can offer some advice as I cant afford to pay for a professsional to take a look at it at this time.

When he tries to turn it on as usual, it attempts to load but it freezes on the screen with the green bars about halfway across and never goes anywhere, he did manage to catch a glimpse of an error a couple of times that said:

"Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix this problem insert your windows disk and run repair "etc.

I havent seen it yet so I can t give the exact wording of the end of the statement but it basically says put your disc in and let windows fix itself.

I would like to be able to solve a problem with my operating system which is not loading all the way. I want to solve it without having to do a clean install.

The Problem:
Windows will stop loading at a point just before the initial desktop screen ?Windows 7 screen?. The screen is black with the mouse cursor and stops. No matter how long I wait it will not proceed any further.
The History:
I purchase this laptop (Dell Studio 1747) 13 months ago with a touch screen, i7, 320gig/5400rpm hard drive, 4 gig of ram and with Windows 7 home premium. The first modification I made to the system in Jan 2011 was to add a Kingston 128gig v+ SSD. In installed Win7 with the ability to boot to either drive. In Sept I installed the Win8 developers preview. I shrank the original hard drive to be able to install Win8 in a new partition. I now had three OS's installed. I have been using the SSD drive as my main system for obvious reasons. Every week I would install any updates in the original Win7 installation.
The events leading to the initial problem:
This past week when I booted to Win8 I was unable to access the other disk partitions using Windows Explorer. I also was presented with a window indicating that a large number of files had an 'invalid security code and was being replaced with a default security code. After logging off Win8, I restarted Windows7(SSD) and found that it would stop loading at the place I described earlier. I then tried 'Safe BOOT' and it stopped at the same place. I ... Read more

Answer:Windows 7 fails to load completely

What a mess.

Can you post back a screenshot of maximized Disk Management drive map with listings of any of the OS's which are still bootable, while all HD's are plugged in. We can advise you better.

If not, unplug all but the SSD, making sure it is set to boot first in BIOS setup (after DVD drive), mark Win7 partition on it Active so it will accept the System boot files: Partition - Mark as Active (Method Two)

Next boot into Win7 DVD Repair console to run Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times until Win7 starts with its own boot files instead of booting off of the other HD.

You can now plug back in the other HD and boot it using the BIOS one-time Boot Menu key so the HD's remain independent. If it needs repair to start, do so using the same procedure as above with the SSD unplugged using the Win8 DVD Repair console.

If you still want to boot the rescue Win7 you installed on HD, add it to Dual boot when starting that HD only, using EasyBCD 2.0 from Win8. But I would delete it's partition in Disk Mgmt unless you have an extra Product Key to activate it and a need to keep it.

If i turn off and turn on my computer via the power button on front panel same deal, it will freeze again at the same spot 100% of the time.i have thus far been combating this problem by after the freeze turning off the power via the power button on the front panel, and when the system shuts down killing power to the power supply via the power switch in the back and waiting 10 seconds. turning back on the back power switch and starting normally. I will get a windows failure to load with the normal options and start windows normally works 100% of the time.i have made no hardware additions to my computer, and this issue seems to be progressive. i used to deal with this perhaps once every 5 start ups and now its slightly over half my start ups.

Answer:windows fails to load 1/2 the time

Power supply or motherboard would be my guess. Power supply cheaper/easier to swap out, so I would try that first. If its mobo, can be a pain as often need to replace cpu & ram too (depending on age) - or look for second hand on ebay. And new (different) mobo means reinstall or repair reinstall, normally.

The title says it all. This has been an ongoing problem that I've kind of been putting off to the side, and it should probably be addressed. Whenever my computer informs me that I have an update, I click the little icon and it brings up the windows update page... and I wait. Then it gives me the message "This page failed to load". any solutions?

This is going to be long and drawn out, but this is killing me and maybe you can help me.

I work in a business environment. I have network and local machine administrator rights. Meaning, I have full control of everything. I ran into a problem a number of months ago where my Devices and Printers screen would appear, but then it would never load the devices. here is a screenshot of what happens.

Now I searched the net for some answers and I found an article that says that people have this problem when the Bluetooth service is not running. Well I started mine and the same thing happens. I logged into a different user i created on the same machine, and initially the Window comes up fine, but later on it does the same thing.

This happens both on a Windows 7 32 bit setup and a Win 7 64 bit setup.

Well, I finally found the source of the problem, at least as far as I'm concerned. We use McAfee Encryption for PC and Encryption for Files and Folders. It's only when I install the latter of the two that the issue occurs. The latter of the two btw, is a policy that forces encryption on any USB storage device inserted to the PC. So you are thinking "Great, report it to McAfee." Problem is, I did, and they tried to replicate the situation and they cannot. We ran down the list of options that we both had running and they were and are identical.

So either at this point I'm thinking one of the two is occurring.
