Question: specific application

Hello,
 

 
I wonder if the forum you give courses on the method of disinfection. your approach to the problem is logical to look at the operation of the computer before to see if the computer is infected.
So if you are organizing courses I'd like to participate.
sincerely,

Preferred Solution: specific application

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: specific application

The malware removal forum here says that only "authorized personnel" are allowed to respond to help requests.  Perhaps you could contact one of the moderators of that forum and ask how to go about becoming authorized.  I know that some other computer forums have actual classes to teach malware removal; this one might too.

Hello Everyone,
What I want to accomplish is to run the program "InstallShield" only with a specified user.
So Basically DENY TO EVERYONE (admins, users, ... ) and ALLOW to the specified user.
I've tryied to create a Deny rule to everyone and an allow to specified user rule but isn't working.
Pheraps it checks the deny rule first and if it's true it stop checking.
Is there a way to allow only my SA user to be able to run Installshield and to deny access to the app to everyone else?

I have been trying to diagnose a particular problem where applications freeze for a split 2-3 seconds at random intervals. I really hope that someone might be able to provide some suggestions as I am starting to pull my hair out with this.

For example, I could be running the following programs:
Google Chrome
VLC Movie Player
Skype
Playng TERA Online.

While playing Tera (current active program) and watching a movie on VLC. VLC will freeze for a few seconds (at random) and then continue, while the game I'm playing does not freeze at all.

Another scenario:
Mozilla Firefox
Quicktime Player
MS Office - Excel
While reading a webpage in Firefox (current active program) and listening to music with quicktime, as I scroll through the webpage the browser will freeze and become unresponsive for 2-3 seconds. Meanwhile the music playing in Quicktime has not missed a single beat.

List of attempted fixes:Checked Event Viewer(Applications) for errors, none found.
Adjusted Virtual Memory/Paging file from 8162MB to an Initial size of 16324/Max 32648
Ran stress test (passmark) To check if I could isolate the freezing during certain tests. (Did not lock up at all after running 5 tests)
Used Windows Error checking (CHKDSK) on physical drive to check for errors (none found in Event Viewer)

I have strange problem.

On my computer some application works with one internet connection ( ISP ) and some through other internet connection ( ISP )

This problem has started since last few days.*

I flush dns and did most common solutions found on net like changing TCP/IP but nothing worked.

Is there any way to get rid off from this error ?

Or is there any way we can combine BOTH wireless internet connection in one PC and make some settings that which application works with which internet connection ( ISP )

I have 2 wireless internet dongles and I have 2 dongles which I can attach to my PC to connect to this internet dongles.

I read about Bridge connection and i did it but this didn't solved the error. May be because I am not able to make settings which application uses which internet connection

PLEASE NOTE, I am not having problem in browsing website. I am having PROBLEM in installed application, like stock market trading software.

I have a command line utility for some purpose. I start this utility from a COM DLL using ShellExecuteEx function. When calling ShellExecuteEx, i specify the lpVerb parameter as "runas" so that the utility is started elevated. I call
the COM Interface function from an exe client on its startup. So when i start the client exe, the utility is also started. My problem is that since the utility is started elevated, it always asks for the UAC confirmation prompt. I can't stand this because
there will be no manual intervention during this process. So I need the utility to be started without showing the UAC prompt, but still elevated when i start the client exe. Is there any way to achieve this? I would prefer some changes done within the utility
itself like changing the manifest file rather than some system settings changes. Any help will be appreciated..

Hello,

I have an application, that has fairly small fonts and no option to increase the font size.
So I thought, that maybe there is a way to zoom the window of that application on the
screen!!
I quickly found several apps, promising to aid in doing that, but soon my disappointment
was quite big, as they were zooming the entire screen (and I couldn't see the entire window
of a maximized application, which I have open in parallel) or just an area around the mouse
or I had to specify which coordinates on the screen to zoom (how annoying can that be ?!?).
And I wasn't able to find an app, which would just say - click on the window you want me to
zoom in to and that's all...
Please kindly help me !! Thanks!

Welcome darkman088 to the forum.
Try this.

Start Orb and type in magnifier. You will get Windows built in magnifier.

I use it a lot. I use a selected button on my mouse to activate it when needed.
You can adjust the magnification from 100% to over 1000% but not much else.

It magnifies the whole page.

For Windows XP I have found "Mini WinXP" that comes with Hiren's 15.2 Hiren's BootCD Fan & Discussion Platform on a bootable USB drive to be the fastest for many things.

In Win XP, is there a way to force an application to use a specific connection while everything else uses a different connection? Here’s what I’d like to be able to do:

I connect from home to work via Verizon Broadband and Nortel VPN to access a secure LAN with shared drives and services, including intranet applications. This is already in place and working fine. The work LAN firewall is configured to block all Internet browsing attempts for all devices connected via VPN – not necessarily for security reasons, but rather to conserve bandwidth. The VPN switch and firewall share the same router and broadband connection, so incoming Internet requests from home through the VPN would go back out of the firewall – effectively doubling the required bandwidth for each request.

This configuration renders embedded Internet links in email and various documents almost useless. There are two choices at present to affect a workaround.

One is to drop the VPN connection when Internet browsing is required; browse to the Internet; and then reestablish the VPN connection after the Internet browsing is complete. This is cumbersome and inefficient at best, but it does work.

The second is to configure the VPN client to use split tunneling. This works too, but puts additional load on the Verizon Broadband connection between home and office (already the slowest link in the path). Also, this option meets with resistance from our network folks for reasons I won’t go into here.

What I’d li... Read more

Answer:Can I force an application to use a specific network in XP?

The whole point of the VPN is to insure a secure channel into the remote computer. You drill a hole a truck could drive through if you actually allow Internet connections while the VPN is connected!

The ability to have multiple connections is normally configured by the VPN host, and I suspect your company would take a really dim view of you compromising their network for your convenience.

I have a laptop on my desk just for testing external access issues to our sites. I'd rather not.

I know it's been asked.. I think I've read over 20 posts on it with no clear and simple solution.

On my windows7 x64 station I have a hard wired LAN Network Connection and a USB wireless network conection. If both are up, IE uses the wired Lan connection. If I disable that LAN connection, IE uses the wireless. Great.. but?

What If I want to have both up? Reading emails and and accessing other intranet resources normally, but surfing via the wireless. Or even better, surfing from a specific browser or instance of a browser through the wireless Connection, and all others using activity through the wired Lan connection?

I'd like to do this without a Proxy or a VM. I understand there is a product called ForceBindIP that sounded very promising, but it does not support Windows 7 yet.

Is there maybe a firewall setting to route port 80 and 443 traffic to a specific Lan connetion? How about tweaking setting of the wired lan connection so that it fails to find DNS servers or anything on the outside?

I'm somewhat surprised this is not a setting somewhere already. I see great value having this.

Thanks.

This is a question concerning anonymity and maintaining privacy. I can use a proxy server, http or socks, and that shows I am connecting from another address than my home IP. However, some sites also track things like browser language and time zone. Language I can simply change by using an English version of my browser rather than a Swedish one, but what about the time zone? Even if I connect through say a US proxy, it will show my time zone as central European.

The question: Is there any way to either prevent the time zone from being detected through the web, or change the time zone which is displayed? I know I can of course just change the time zone of my system but I'd rather not as it will mess up logs and such. If there is another way of doing it, either with what utilities are in place or by additional software, I'd love to hear about it.

Thanks in advance.

I have an IR receiver constantly attached to my computer. One program I use always registers it as a game controller, and stops me from using my actual game controllers in favor of it. Is it possible to automate disabling the IR receiver while the program runs, and re-enabling it after the application closes?

Answer:Is it possible to disable a device while a specific application runs?

Hi, if you know or can find a command to disable it, you can write a simple Autohotkey script- for example, a loop that periodically tests to see if your game is running, and if so, disable the device.

(Autohotkey is free and well supported- it can be programmed to test for the presence of a particular process in 1 line).

Probably 5 lines would suffice.

It comes with a comprehensive help file, detailing each command with examples.

Or you could create a shortcut to a script that
a. launches the game
and
b. disables the device and exits when you choose.

I have tried several personal firewalls and have yet to find one of the free ones that will allow you to set firewall rules that allow only a specific ip or ip's to connect to a specific application. Most only have a trusted ip list.

Online Armor has this functionality but not for the free version.

hi
there is an application that communicates with remote server. it connects to the server and the user selects the records/files (txt or tif files) it then starts downloading them.

the issue with it is that this application works from home or non company internet. but it doesnt works on company network.

i want to investigate whats stoping it.

it can successfully login to the server and shows the files needed to be downloaded. and it sometimes does starts downloading . but it fails midway through files.

we are behind a tmg.

and tmg client is working but no success with it.

so i want some application to be installed on that particular pc on which the application is not working .(again it works if non company internet is used). that should just monitor the packets sent and received by that application..

wireshark is too complicated.. and displays all packets flying by.

how can i corelate the packets shown in wire shark to that specific program ?

any other alternative ?

or how to tackle the issue with this particular app? that is what i want to solve.

update:
that application uses http to download data .

Start with Process Monitor. It will not show you the packets, but it might provide a clue.

Answer:Change Taskbar Icon Width for a specific Application

Hello Mialbedwy, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You could use the same method of pinning the Recycle Bin to the taskbar in a folder as a toolbar, but use the application you want instead of the Recycle Bin. This will give it a wider space.

Recycle Bin - Pin to Taskbar

Hope this helps,

Greetings everyone.  I've been dealing with this annoyance for two years.  I've been in contact with the support staff for the application, and have tried everything suggested, but the issue still stands.
 
The application is League of Legends.  The issue is when the game tries to launch lolclient.exe, I get this error: "Unable to connect to the server.  If you have a firewall, it may be blocking the connection.  Please refer to your firewall's documentation.  Would you like to retry the connection?"  
 
If I click "Retry," I'm stuck on a black screen for ~30 seconds and then it loads successfully.  Sometimes it waits for ~30 seconds, prompts the error again, and then it's successful.  It always eventually succeeds, but it takes a while to get there.  Besides using a VPN and replacing hardware, I've tried literally everything suggested by the community and the staff.  All necessary ports are forwarded and confirmed as open.  I do not experience any persistent network issues besides this one. 
 
I know that it's not actually related to my firewall for two reasons: 1. it happens on ANY computer on the network, regardless of software.  If I use the computer on another network, it connects immediately, and 2. I've completely uninstalled my firewall software, disabled Windows Defender, and ensured that all firewall-related services were stopped.  The router's internal firewall is disabled. &#... Read more

I purchased a game that has a known sound issue. It only plays all of the sound when using Stereo sound. 5.1 sounds are sadly incomplete. Currently I only know how to change all sound on my system to either be Stereo or 5.1. Is there any way that I can set this one application to use Stereo sound? Perhaps with a third party app?

In Windows 7, the input method is application-specific, i.e., when you change the input method in one application, it doesn't affect other applications. However, in Windows 8 this seems to be changed: the input method is system-wide.

The problem is: I need to use Chinese input (either the embedded Windows Chinese input, or the one from Google, I prefer to use the later), which seems to only use US keyboard layout. However, I am using Finnish layout, so the locations of symbol keys are different. I need to frequently switch the input methods, which is really annoying. I really miss the one in Windows 7: the Chinese input was only effective for the application I needed to type Chinese

As the title indicates, I'd like to restrict the amount of bandwidth or internet access speed of a specific application on my PC. Preferably during certain times only, but even a way to enable and disable this rule as I need would be fine.

I have a 1Mb ADSL with a measly 3GB monthly cap (it's painful, can't afford more at the moment though), and Steam turns out to be the nastiest, bloated, deceptive, sneaky, bandwidth-whor........<a while later>........ piece of software ever released to the world at large.

So, I keep setting all my games to "Do not update automatically" (which needs to be re-set after each time a game is run), and it supposedly doesn't download updates or patches while a game is being played... Despite this, if I decide to play Borderlands, after launching the game I have to alt-tab into Windows, go to Steam, and pause the next "Suspended" 250MB or 300MB update that it's busy downloading... I may have a slow connection by most of your standards, but at a pretty constant 100KB/s, 3GB isn't exactly going to last me that long.

Now, I do have a service from my ISP that gives me 5 times my download cap between 1am and 5am (more info, if you like).. So I can get a theoretical 15GB a month if I play my cards right. Is there any firewall out there that will allow me to limit the access speed of Steam to 5KB/s or 10KB/s during specific times...?

Hi,
I downloaded a bespoke appn from a site called www.bobbooks.co.uk that allows you to put together your own pictures into specific book types and they then produce a proper coffee table stylebook, ideal for wedding pictures etc.

But for some reason as soon as I open the application it is trying to connect to the internet to check for updates as it is supposed to do and it cannot reach the server it's trying to. Similarly if you try and manually update it this happens.

I have allowed it as an exception in Windows Firewall so other thought is it's something to do with my router settings. Any suggestions? I can't understand why this would be the case though because AVG, Spybot, Adaware etc etc have never given me a problem like this and I've never had to manually configure my router in any way (it's a fairly standard Netgear one.)

I tried installing the same software at work and it worked straight away, so clearly it is something to do with my setup at home. Sigh....

I contacted Bob's Books and they said they've never had this problem before. And with the best will in the world they are not techies.

Any suggestions greatfully received as the (new) wife is hassling me to get it sorted so she can sort the wedding and honeymoon pictures out. Whoever said married life would be all bliss....

thanks,
Jonathan

Hello,

I am writing this because I am seeking help with an Email related issue.

I am trying to use a program that retrieves Inbound Email attachments and resends them to a new destination… it is a dispatch program.

The Help Files associated with this program make reference to “The Attachment Folder” from “My Email Program”.

I am currently using Microsoft Outlook 2000 as my Email program although… I also have Outlook Express as an optional email program that I could use.

I would prefer to stay with Outlook 2000 though…
“if possible”.

I am enclosing an excerpt from the “Help” File associated with this program so you can see their exact reference to an “Attachment Folder from my Email Program”.

I have tried contacting The Program Manufacturers Tech. Support but as yet have not heard back from them.

I am looking for any advice or direction to be able to Locate and Identify this “Attachments Folder” in “my Email Program” that they make reference to.

If you can assist or advise me in any way I would appreciate it very much, as I am completely lost as to what to do next.

My Operating System is Windows 98SE.

Thank You

Outlook does not save the attachments in a "separate folder", it bundles them up with everything else in a .pst file.

Hello,
I have several versions of an application (Adobe After Effects) installed (I help test out prerelease versions of the software - which is nice) and I'd like to be able to set the precise application / file type association.

If I get a file's properties and 'Change...' the 'Opens with:' and browse to the exact application I want it to open with (After Effects version 13.6x123), then Apply/OK it, when I open the file, it just loads up the oldest version of the app (After Effects version 13.2) that Windows can find. Is there a better way to set filetype associations than the broken method that Windows is clearly attempting to use?

I have four versions of this app currently installed, all in C:\Program Files\Adobe. 90% of the time, I want to use the latest version, but occasionally need to use an older (public release) version to check how certain bugs/behaviours have changed, so need to keep all those versions installed.

I can use the workaround of opening the specific app and File > opening the file from within it, but it would be nice if I could get Windows to behave properly. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

I've looked around quite a bit on both this forum and Google and can't seem to find an answer, so if this has been answered before, please forgive me and be so kind as to provide a link to a relevant topic.

I am using a TiddlyWiki stored on a USB flash drive. What I would like to do is set a parameter on the shortcut so that it always launches with a specific portable browser, also stored on the pen drive, rather than the defauly browser that is stored on the computer it is attached to.

Likewise, I have a few PDFs that I use regularly between machines, and would like to have them open using a portable PDF reader (Sumatra) which is also stored on the flash drive. That way, the PDF will always open to my last saved page, regardless of which machine I am using.

The computers I use are a home desktop PC (Win 7), home netbook (Win XP) and work laptop (Win XP).

If there is a different way to achieve this without using shortcut parameters, I would be more than happy to give it a whirl.

Cheers!

Help Appreciated.

In a Windows 8 PC, User account is "Standard" and Administrator account is different, in which how can I exclude some application which is from asking administrator password to execute?
My situation is specially for application updates such as java and/or adobe reader. Each time, when there is an update, it is asking administrator password to run the same.
Kindly assist.

Answer:Exclude specific application execution in "Standard User"

Hello Anil, and welcome to Eight Forums.

Normally you could use an option in the tutorial below to prevent standard "users" from being able to run a specific file.

Applications - Prevent Running Specified Programs - Windows 7 Help Forums

However, in this case, the user isn't the one running the application. The applications are set to automatically check for updates, so they're running themselves instead. If you turn off the check for updates automatically option in the java and Adobe programs, it should stop this. You will of course need to manually check for updates afterwards every so often though.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hello all!
 
So I work tech support at my company and recently had one of our secretaries run into a virus. It was an email containing a fake resume in .doc format that once opened, attempted to direct the computer to download a trojan. AVG detected it right off the bat and quarantined it. I then ran a full system scan with AVG, Malwarebytes, and Spybot and everything came back clean.  I had assumed AVG along with Word being macro-disabled by default kept anything from actually happening.
 
However, at the time of the download she was running our company bookkeeping software (eClub for those interested) and it crashed once she tried to use it again. I check it out and see that the .exe to run eClub had been removed from the eClub folder (let's call it eclub.exe). Weird! So I go ahead and completely uninstall the program and reinstall, only to find eclub.exe was not reinstalled with it. I copy eclub.exe from another computer and try to paste it into the folder, and I'm told I don't have permission to do so. Then things get weird:
 
1. I uninstalled eClub completely again, removed the eClub folder and every possible saved setting for it.
2. I created a blank eClub folder (ex. C:\Program Files\eClub)
3. I can put anything I want into this folder, including .exes, EXCEPT for eclub.exe, getting the insufficient permission error.
4. I can put eclub.exe in subfolders of C:\Program Files\eClub without a problem

I recently moved in with my aunt, and I had this same problem last summer when I visited. Now that I live here, its a much bigger issue :/

my laptop, which connects fine to all other wireless networks, has trouble on this one. It can browse the web all day, but the second a large file begins to transfer (video, a file download, etc.) it will drop the connection randomly, usually rather quickly. The computer does not need to be restarted to reconnect, it often reconnects on its own near-immediately, though sometimes I have to go to the system tray and reconnect manually.

I thought it was too far from the router, but my tower in the same room connects flawlessly, and going in to the same room as the router doesn't help. This same laptop has been fine on every other network, and every other computer is fine on this network. I've web crawled off and on about this for months, but no one's problem is limited to one computer/network combination.

If the solution is in a setting on this laptop, that would be awesome - the network is used for my aunts business and I'm really hesitant about changing any settings, and since it works for all other devices theoretically the router settings should be something I can adapt this device to as well. crossing my fingers, thanks guys!

For some time I have been unable to send email to one specific domain. If I send a very brief message (literally a few words) the email will go through: if there is an attachment or more than just a few words in the message body I receive a delivery failure notification. I have checked with my ISP (BT connect) and the ISP of the recipient and there is no evidence that the problem is due to filtering, blacklisting etc.

I have no problem sending emails (with or without attachments) to any other domain.

My pc runs Win98SE and Outlook 2000.

I signed up for a hotmail account and was able to send an email with a large attachment to the affected domain using that. I concluded the problem was my ISP, but before changing to another I ran one more test.

I sent a large email to the affected domain using my Win XP Pro laptop, also with Outlook 2000. It arrived!

This suggests the problem is specific to my PC setup. The problem started some time ago (maybe a year or so) - before that I was able to send emails to the domain from the PC.

I'd be very grateful if anyone has any suggestions about what could be causing this problem on the specific pc.

You can redirect specific users My Docs folder to a network share. Then the files will not be stored on the local machine, and you can also include that network share in your daily backup routines. As for the other users, just leave their My Docs folder set to the default path, and their files will be stored on the local machine.

Answer:how to apply a specific sound to a specific action

Heh. I did that quite a few years ago with Win95.
First off, you'll need to convert that mp3 to a .wav file. Audacity can do it in seconds.
Put your .wav file in C: -> Windows -> Media
Then go to your Control Panel, select Sound, then click the Sounds tab.
Scroll down to Windows Explorer in the window you see, and click on Empty Recycle Bin.
The dropdown box below will turn from grey to white. In that dropdown window, choose the name of the .wav file, in this instance, perhaps "Toilet".
Click "Apply". Save your new sound scheme if you wish with a new name.
Every time you empty the Recycle Bin, you'll hear your flush.

I am trying to develop a GPO that will only apply to my primary laptop users while they are using their laptop but am having trouble getting it just right. What this GPO is meant to accomplish is to alter the default my documents location for my laptop users only while using their laptops. If the user signs into another system I don't want it to apply, and if someone else who is not the laptop's primary assigned user signs in, I don't want it to apply.

I have both a Laptops group under my Computers container and a LaptopUsers group under my user's container in AD, but when I apply the GPO to both of these groups it seems to affect these users everywhere, not just on their assigned laptops. The GPO is meant to redirect the My Documents folder from a network location to a local system location which will sync back to the network, so when the laptop is out of the office My Documents are still available.

Thanks for any advice!

Answer:Assigning GPO to specific users on specific systems

Put the GPO for the redirection into a sub OU of computers, link the GPO to that sub OU and then move the computers you want it to affect into that OU, in the scope/security options of the GPO, remove authenticated users and then enter the users you want the GPO to affect once you've done this, make sure its all tested.

I'm not an expert on GPO's and there is probably a much cleaner way to do it but thats how I've managed to do it in the past.

right-click on start>network connections>right-click on the wifi connection>properties>tcp/ipv4 properties>use the following IP addres.

BUT the big annoyance is that this network doesn't have an internet connection (strictly for connecting to hardware), so I often have to switch between the networks (if i'm pushing code to git, for example). Is there a way for me to save this specific configuration to be automatically used if I attempt to connect to <hardware network>, but if I attempt to connect to another network <internet network>, it allows for automatic IP acquisition?

Hi,

I created a new user acount for my son on my primary desktop. Upon creating it and logging in to the newly created account I see a bunch of my applications on his desktop. I want to make his desktop as clutter free and only have the apps he needs and uses.

Hastily I go and delete some of the shortcut icons only to later find that the same icons have also been deleted on MY desktop.

I later figured out that anything edited under "public desktop" would be shared & affects all users.

Is the only way around this situation to move the specific contents within "public desktop" into My (administer) "desktop" folder?

Answer:Specific desktop icons for specific users

Of course. The point of having a Desktop folder in your user directory is for this purpose. So use it for its intended purpose. I fail to see the reasoning behind wanting another solution when one is already staring you in the face.

Folks
I've asked this question elsewhere and got no firm response. In Windows XP pro [or home for that matter].... if the system has multiple User accounts, particularly those with Admin permissions, is HJT user-specific? Do you need to login and run it multiple times in the various Accounts to get an accurate picture?

thx

How do I obtain the specific components in an  IdeaPad Z510 Laptop - 59400192. This item is on the Lenovo sales web page. Reading the hardware manual, I see there are various possibilities for wifi card and web cam. How do I find the specific components ( like liteon WB335 wifi) and not generalities (like BGN wifi) in this model?

STOP: c oooo 145 {application error. The application failed to initialize properly (0x 0000005). Click OK to terminate application. The above message is what I receive, when I run "error check". It was advised from the Microsoft website that I ran ERROR CHECK, along with "disk cleanup" & "defrag" analysis, to see if the machine needs to be defragged.I went along with the advised procedures by Microsoft, because it was said that the computer would run faster. I've been doing the ones that worked, defrag analysis, disk clean up & CC Cleaner. Along with those maintenance tasks, I update all the definitions on the malware software. With the aforementioned error message problem with the lap top, I also have a problem with Adobe Reader (listed in another topic), that I can't uninstall it, without getting a 'Error 1402' message. Then the one last problem is the cursor jumping around at random times, when I am typing to either the forum or in a Word document. I mention these other issues because I am not sure they're not related. This is a DELL Inspiron 1520, Centrino (2007). I have another laptop, a 5150 Inspiron, with a P4 chip, and it absolutely has no issues. It hasn't even caught a virus. I don't use it as much now, but in the past I took it everywhere.

Answer:STOP: c oooo 145 {application error. The application failed to initialize properly (0x 0000005).

What steps are you taking to run the check?

That error seems to indicate a hard drive problem, which is why it was suggested to run chkdsk /r.

Start/Run...type chkdsk /r and hit Enter. Type Y in new screen and hit Enter. Reboot the system. The command should execute, before booting into XP.

Hello - I wrote an application in VB6 suppose 'APP_X'. which i am running every night using a service called 'WinService_Y' running as admin user. Now in APP_X, I am using net.exe to sync time
with server.



When the WinService_Y triggers the APP_X, it gives me the error saying:

"The application failed to initialize properly(0xc0000142). click ok to terminate the application"



Okay, title of the dialog box is Net.exe so i know this occured when APP_X is trying to execute Net.exe.







P.S: This does not occur if i directly run the APP_X without using the WinService_Y

APP_X is written in VB6 and WinService_Y is in C# .net framework 2.0

APP_X is just not time sync there are tons of other things



Sync time Code APP_X(sample):

Someone please help I was doing a system restore when the computer turned off when i rebooted it, the next time i turned my laptop on it goes to the log on screen but when I click my name it begins to log on but then an error message pops up titled Explorer.EXE - Unable To Locate Component and it says 'This application has failed to start because WININET.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.' So I click 'OK' and all that shows up is my wallpaper. No icons on the desktop no toolbar on the bottom no start menu no nothing just my picture. I really don't have a clue what to do at all. If anyone could give me clear instructions or any tips on how to fix this problem it would be greatly appreciated, I have tried using the drivers disks to try to install but i cant access the dvd /cd drive wont open the disk juast sits in the dvd cd drive as well please help plus now it laptop whn i try to boot it stays at the windows xp screen but does not want to go any further then scanning there its a acer aspire 5670 with widows xp professional, sincerely frankp747

Answer:'This application has failed to start because WININET.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem

Hello frankp747,From what I read, the "Wininet.dll" error can be caused by software, hardware, or malware. Why were you performing a system restore? Have you tried to access Safe Mode?As the computer is booting, tap the "F8 key" continuously until you get the "Advanced Boot Options" Menu.Use your arrow keys to move to "Last Known Good Configuration" then press the <Enter> key. Reboot the computer.If that doesn't work, try "Safe Mode."If Safe Mode loads then try to do a System Restore using a point before your troubles began. Click "Start," "All Programs," "Accessories," "System Tools," "System Restore."

I have seen several postings on this topic, but it seems that every one is a little different, so I am posting my dilemma. I am sorry if I'm posting in the wrong place.
As of about 10 days ago, several programs will not open. Instead, I get the error window that states "The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005). Click OK to terminate the application." As far as I can tell, this error message affects these programs: Ultraplayer, Windows Media Player, Sound Recorder, Logitech Setpoint, Quicktime Player, Real One Message Center, and Total Recorder.

My computer is a desktop, HP Pavilion a1020n. Windows XP Home Ed., SP 3. Windows updates are current. Run Avast antivirus software and usually have Windows Firewall turned on.

Here's what I've tried:
Tried to uninstall and reinstall several programs. Uninstall usually won't happen. Have tried new installs over the old, but it doesn't "take."
10 days ago - went back to a restore point. Did no good.
Have run Lavasoft Ad-Aware and Spybot Search & Destroy several times, including today (May 2). Today Ad-Aware found and removed a few items from the families of Cookies, Win32 Trojan Spy, and Win32 Tr\.\per Delf. Spybot found nothing today.
Have run CCleaner to clean up registry.

I am currently using my husbands laptop to try and figure out what to do. Can someone please help me?

Answer:Services.exe - Application Error. The Application Failed To Initialize (0xc0000005).

Well...it seems to me (I may be misreading) but that system belonged to a unnamed 3d party, which had the operating license.

If I had found such system, the first thing I would have done is wipe it clean (because I don't like using someone else's data which they've decided to trash) and to give myself a good start at seeing if the system worked properly.

Then I would have done a clean install.

That's the only way that I know how to go from a series of unknowns...to a known good, working system.

Worst case scenario: The system is highly infected.

Best case scenario: The system has O/S or malware problems or a combination thereof.

Hi There

I have been given a friends computer to fix. The way he described it, it sounded like it was full of Malware etc, however I haven't been able to start it up as I get the following message appearing when I power it up.

userinit.exe - Application Error The Application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005). Click ok...

This message appears twice, I then get the wallpaper of the computer up, but nothing else, no icons or task bar. I have tried a wee trip to safe mode but don't get anywhere from that either, just the same message.

Does anyone have any thoughts?

Cheers

Colin

And now I am so screwed. I can't even open services.msc, I can't install an update, I can't run updates and I can't re enable anything because I can't get into services to do it. Please don't say system restore because I disabled it. If you say get a mac, then yes, I agree!

Answer:I disabled application info and application update in services.msc

I'm getting consistent/regular application errors involving "svchost.exe_SysMain" failures. A typical event message looks like the following:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Faulting application svchost.exe_SysMain, version 6.0.6001.18000, time stamp 0x47919291, faulting module sysmain.dll, version 6.0.6001.18000, time stamp 0x4791adbd, exception code 0xc0000005, fault offset 0x0000000000027bc4, process id 0x9b0, application start time 0x01c9c9b411570516.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------


This is followed (in the event log) by a cascade of errors from the "Service Control Manager Eventlog Provider" such as the following:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
The ReadyBoost service terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 2 time(s). The following corrective action will be taken in 60000 milliseconds: Restart the service.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

The cascade of service/driver errors occurs within 3 to 6 seconds of the initial svchost.exe_SysMain failure and hits a dozen or so other services including but not limited to ...

Windows Audio Endpoint Builder
Offline Files service
ReadyBoost service
Human Interface Device Access service
Network Connections service
Program Compatibility Assistant Service
Superfetch service
Tablet PC Input Service
Desktop Window Manage... Read more

Answer:Application Error -- Faulting application svchost.exe_SysMain

SYSMAIN is Superfetch.

I see exception code = 0xc0000005. What anti-virus product(s) do you have installed? If "Internet Security" package w/ personal firewall like NIS, KIS, Mcafee, etc... - IT is the likely cause and s/b removed.

cmd.exe application error - application was unable to start correctly (0x0000142). Click ok to close the application

Anyone know why it happened?

I got this error when I tried to restart to install an update. However, in windows update, it showed I had nothing to update. There was the little yellow shield by the shut down button to indicate it was installing an update when I would shutdown.

I rebooted fine, and CMD works fine. Is it possible windows thought it had to install something, and the installer had already installed the update (I went onto windows update earlier myself to install the windows and silverlight updates) and it bugged because maybe it had to use cmd to execute the update or something?

Answer:cmd.exe application error - application was unable to start correctly

It seems to be happening again, but only when I shutdown when explorer is open. I tried and tested his multiple times. It has only happened after the new silverlight update and kb 30247777 (sorry if the number is wrong) update.

What is causing this?
