Where I could find Toshiba tools for my Satellite Pro 480 CDT

Question: Where I could find Toshiba tools for my Satellite Pro 480 CDT

Hello everybody.
I've got an old fashioned 480 CDT here, used, but still works fine. Runs Win98 fine so far.

The Problem: The machine urgently needs re-installation, but I've got no disks for the Toshiba specific tools (i.e. HWSETUP etc.) which came originally with the laptop. (But a Win98 CD I do have!) Seems that they've been lost along its long way.

I didn't find a possibility to download these tools from the Toshiba support pages. Maybe I'm too blind so somebody can give me a link where to download the Toshiba Tools?

Where can I find these tools? (I did find the Archive section, but there these tools aren't listed :-(

Thanks in advance.

Preferred Solution: Where I could find Toshiba tools for my Satellite Pro 480 CDT

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Where I could find Toshiba tools for my Satellite Pro 480 CDT


I looked on the toshiba sites after your problem and you could go to
in the menu Support & Download - Driver Download you could find a site to download drivers.

In the first drop down menu you have to choose ARCHIVE there is your laptop.

But there is only the Advanced Power Mode for W98 and BIOS update downloadable

it seems that the Satellite Pro 480 was only delievered with Win95.

It'll hope this will help you

Hi guys

I have just removed Windows Vista from my Satellite P300 and installed a retail version of Windows 7 32 bit.

My question is now I have lost the Toshiba software on my laptop like the cd writer software and the web cam software and the toshiba Tempro, so just what do I need to download to get all the toshiba software that was on the computer before. Do I need the tempro software?

Hopw someone can give me some advice please

Answer:Satellite P300 - Where to find Toshiba tools?

Hi sam2149,

It?s no problem to get the Toshiba tools again. You don?t need TEMPRO to download all tools, just visit the Toshiba website and download all drivers and tools that you want: > Support & Downloads > Download Drivers

All available downloads for your model can be found here.

Hi friends

I have formatted my Toshiba Satellite A660-149 and I didn?t create recovery CD/DVD.
I have installed Windows 7 but now thing is that I don?t have any of Toshiba features like eco utility, HDD protection, face recognition, NVIDIA graphic controller.

Please suggest me what should I do now....& where I can get this software.

Answer:Need Toshiba tools and utilities for my Satellite A660-149

Hi friend ;)

All necessary drivers and Toshiba specific tools and utilities you can find on Toshiba support page under > Support & Downloads Support homepage.
At the bottom of this page you will see option ?Driver download?.

Go there, choose your notebook model and you will find all you need.
Of course, there you will find stuff for supported OS version only.

Good luck

Hi everyone,
I own Satellite Pro M50, listed as discontinued model on Toshiba's official site - drivers and tools provided by Toshiba are only for XP, and several ones for Vista.

I installed Windows 7 32bit and I'm very pleased with speed of the computer now. Windows 7 was able to detect my devices (display, usb, wifi, lan) and updated drivers successfully. Everything seems to work OK by now.

Problem is with Toshiba tools.
MasterG (to whom I'm already very thankful, but I didn't find a way how to address him directly) has advised other user with older model (M100-221) to use VAP and Flash Card Support Utility for L500 series.
(for details : <a href="" target="_newWindow" class="jive-link-external"></a>)<br />
I tried it, and the Flash Card Support utility worked. Now I can use the Fn-key.

There are also some Toshiba features I would like to run: Power Saver, TouchPad utility, and so on. How could I find out which model has tools that could work as a substitute for my one or was it only coincidence that it worked?

Thanks a lot in advance, and greetings to whole toshiba community, I'm really delighted with this support forums.


Answer:Satellite Pro M50 - Comaptible Toshiba tools for WIndows 7

Hi bevo,

It?s nice to hear that you managed Windows 7 installation successful on your Satellite Pro M50 and you also like the forum as me. :)

What tools you want exactly?
There are some differences between XP and Windows 7 tools. For example Power Saver is already a part of Value Added Package and you can find the power saver settings in Windows Power Management of Windows.

The touchpad utility you can download from other notebooks. As far as I know Synaptics and Alps Electric driver should work on every model but you must test it, I don?t have Satellite Pro M50.

Furthermore such a list of compatible tools is not known to me. Just try it.
Important is that you install Windows 7 versions or at least for Vista. I think XP tools don?t work.

Good luck! :)

Hi I was wondering if my applications that were pre installed on my Toshiba Satellite A500 would transfer across on a custom install of Windows 7.

I have done a upgrade from Vista Home Premium to Windows 7 Home Premium but I want to do a full install on Windows 7 as I feel the upgrade does not operate as good as a full install of a OS.

Answer:Satellite A500 - Toshiba tools after new Windows 7 installation


As i know, if you make a full install everything will be wiped on local disk C: and you will have to install all application/drivers again.

Where do I start, planned to upgrade , brand new machine to Vista Business as I need to connect to domain - Vista home prem (OEM) is no good.

Checked with tech support who advised me to download drivers from the site which i did (why are they not supplied with the machine?)

Upgraded system, tried to install ATI driver it fails ! (notice this driver has been removed from the site). Password Utility fails (reporting wrong serial no), sd utility fails (reporting wrong serial no). Value added packages fails to install all components, specifically (TOSHIBA components common driver, and TOSHIBA Flash cards).

Tried tech support, who advised to upgrade bios, however that also failed!

*So now have amachine that will not read flash cards, no function keys work, and the toshiba diagnotic tool does not work.*

Apparently this has now been escalated, but have to say, it very disapointing that there are not clear instructions on this process, as I presume there will be many users who wish to upgrade the same path as I am trying to do.

Any advice or help in the meatime would be greatfully appreciated !

>it very disapointing that there are not clear instructions on this process
First of all I wonder why you said something like that ?:|
I think you are not newbie and should be able to install some simply drivers. Or I?m wrong?
You have visited the Toshiba European driver page then you have noticed that there are different P200 series.
Hopefully you have downloaded the right drivers for the right series. The P200-17C belongs to the PSPB6E. Check this!!!

Furthermore I have found a installation instruction txt file on the driver page. Seems you didn?t see it!
You have to follow the installation order mentioned in this txt file!!!

I have a few questions regarding my Toshiba P200-17C but I'm not sure if I should be posting in the Satellite forum, the Operating system forum, or the Toshiba Tools & Utilities forum but, because my questions concern all three forums and as the questions are directly related to the tools & utilities, I feel that this may the the one to post in?

After installing Windows 7 RC 64bit, I installed just about all of the 64bit versions of the Toshiba software that are available for my P200-17C and apart from a few niggly issues, all of the Toshiba software and Windows 7 RC 64bit appear to be working just fine on my notebook.

Utilities installed: accoustic silencer, assist, chipset utility, config free, dvd player, decoder driver, flash cards support, flash media, hw setup, LAN, modem, SD utilities, sound, TEMPRO, Touchpad,* value added logical device*, webcam, wireless LAN.

The issues that I am having are as follows:

The six media buttons just above the keyboard which are the internet button, the CD/DVD button, the play/pause button, stop, fast rewind, fast forward.

Toshiba/Utilities/HW Setup

With reference to the first issue - media buttons - apart from the "Internet" and "CD/DVD" buttons, the other four buttons work when Windows Media Player is launched but I would like the internet and CD/DVD buttons to work.

Answer:Satellite P200-17C - Windows 7 and Toshiba Tools & Utilities

Hello Dave

Until Windows 7 is still in Beta phase and not officially on the market Toshiba and, I believe, any other notebook manufacturer will not offer support for Windows 7.
I believe you that some tools or utilities work well but it is nothing but luck.

All tools and utilities must be prepared and tested for new operating system. When you download VAP there is must be chosen OS and you can download it for Vista only. So if some tool works is nice but if not there is nothing you can do. Just to wait, like me and many other people who have installed Windows 7 for testing purposes.

Please help

I purchased 2 of these laptops for my boys for high school. They came loaded with Windows 7 although I received an offer to update to Windows 8 for a special price which I did.

In the process of doing this it instructed me that there were some conflicts with some programs that I had to uninstall and then reinstall afterwards.

The programs I had to delete were:
Toshiba Disc Creator
Toshiba Face Recognition
Toshiba Health Monitor
Intel USB 3.0
Extensible Host Control Driver
Toshiba LAN Indicator
Toshiba Recovery Media Creator

Where do I find these programs to download? I did look up Toshiba and entered the computer model but it didn't recognise the last part of the model (PSK DLA).
I just want to make sure I am downloading the correct programs again.

I am also now having a problem with playing videos after downloading WIndows 8. I can hear the sound but I don't get the picture. This is also happening on my HP laptop. I am using the Radeon Graphics AMD (sorry, I know this is going to show that I have a computer with no idea).

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Answer:Satellite L850 PSKDLA: Need Toshiba tools which were removed before Win 8 upgrade


All Windows 8 drivers are available on Toshiba EU driver page.
If some tools are missing then this means that such tools don?t exist for Win 8 at this time.

>Toshiba Recovery Media Creator
This is only a part of Toshiba image. The recovery disk creator creates recovery image from the system preinstalled by Toshiba. If you upgraded the system to Win 8, you will need to use another tools to create an system image.

Here also a nice documentation - Windows 8 Upgrade - Notes and Restrictions

By the way: Some drivers for Win 7 are compatible with Win 8
So you can also install the Intel USB 3.0 driver which was released for Win 7 on Windows 8 preinstalled notebook.

Hello everybody,

I have purchased a pre-order of Windows 7 Professional for my laptop and would like to upgrade it from Windows Vista Home Premium installed on it at the moment.

However, I just have one question :

- Do you think I will be able to upgrade from Windows Vista Home to Windows 7 Professional without a full install ?
- Else, if I have to perform a full install, then is it possible to install the Toshiba tools and utilities from the CD (I have not found anything to do this) ?

Many thanks in advance.


Answer:Satellite P100-488 - Installing Toshiba tools and utilities on Windows 7

Hi Fred

As I can see you have two questions. ;)

At first I must say that I don't believe anybody here will be able to offer exact answers but here is my opinion:

Q1 ? for OS installation I prefer full installation but I think you will be able to make Win7 upgrade. Problem is how the Toshiba tools and utilities will work after this upgrade. As far as I know in the past Toshiba has suggested removing some tools and utilities before upgrade installation starts.
So maybe you should think about full OS installation. I think it is better solution for you.

Q2 ? I the whole story I see one problem ? what if Toshiba will not offer Win7 support for your notebook model? Then you will have problem and just try to use Vista stuff in hope it will works with Win7 too. Anyway, in this forum you can find many postings where people confirm that most of Vista stuff runs well with Win7.

Good luck Fred.

Hello everybody,

I bought a Windows 7 upgrade to Toshiba.

And I have 2 DVD :
1 for the Toshiba upgrade and 1 for the Windows upgrade.

I have run the 2 first steps without problems.

But when I have run the 3rd step (which is the upgrade of the Toshiba tools), an error occured and I wanted to cancel thee process (I have even removed the CD from the CD reader) but the process kept running.

In conclusion the process went to the end but no tools are installed and when I want to run the CD again it acts as if all the tools are already installed and it doesn't run.

What can I do for the system to consider that the tools are not installed ?

Or where can I find another install program which will run the Toshiba tools on my system ?

Thank you very much.

The Toshiba value added package is a collection of different single Toshiba applications like TOSHIBA Components Common Driver, TOSHIBA Power Saver, TOSHIBA Password Utility, TOSHIBA Flash Cards, etc?

All this applications are already installed on the Toshiba image which is placed on the Toshiba recovery CD.

>Microsoft Windows HotStart for instant-on entertainment
As far as I know Windows Hotstart in the Microsoft Windows Vista operating system provides built-in support for launching applications directly from system startup.
Manufacturers can take advantage of Windows HotStart to add consumer-friendly application-access buttons through chassis front panels.
In your case this are the Toshiba control buttons for example.

>What CD/DVD writing software is included?

There should be an preinstalled tool called Toshiba Disc creator.
Using this too you can create original audio CD, data CD and DVD and backup discs of CD and DVD

Hope I have clarified everything

My toshiba is Satellite U300 model no. PSU30C-TP908C with windows vista installed

I am getting into a big trouble for some reason, all the keys from "F1~F12" are malfunctioned. When i press them, they do not work as what its suppose to do, instead they all became the functions that you would have when you press them while holding the "Fn" key. So, now if i press F1, I actually get a compter locked instead of casting the help window. Pressing "U,I,O,J,K,L,M" would print out numbers, but if you turn "ON" the numberpad by pressing "F11"(note that i could do it without holding Fn), these keys will return to normal. Space bar does not work no matter what you do. The numbers "1,2" above "Q,W" does not work either.

Another thing i found out is that when i try to open the accessibility tools in the toshiba utility. It says "This system does not support this program".

Normally you can find all drivers on the Toshiba Canada page for your notebook: => Support => Mobile Computing

For the FN keys on Windows you need the Value Added Package. You can find it on the Toshiba website. Remove the old version and restart the notebook. Then use CCleaner to clean the registry and then install the version.

But be honest if you can?t go in the BIOS because with F2 I think it?s a keyboard malfunction and this has nothing to do with the Toshiba tools.
In your case I would test an external keyboard? So you can determine if it?s an internal keyboard problem or not.

Good luck!

I cannot find the Windows 10 product Key on my Toshiba Notebook. Where is the sticker? On my notebook or elsewhere? Thank you for your answers in advance

Answer:Cannot find Windows 10 serial key on Toshiba Satellite C50-C-1JL

Windows 8 PCs now embed their product keys in the BIOS.

In the past, a new Windows PC would display its product key on a sticker, usually on the side of a desktop and on the base or the bottom of the battery compartment on a laptop. But with Windows 8, Microsoft has switched gears and now stores and encrypts the key in the BIOS instead.

Guess its the same for Win 10.

I've seen an HP laptop running Win 10 that doesn't have said sticker either.

I have a Toshiba Satellite U205-S5002. Yesterday when I attempted to start my laptop I received this error message: windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \windows\system32\config\system

And something about pressing "r" from the recovery disk. Well, I booted from the only disk I received when I purchased the computer and there is no option for repair. The only options available are to return the laptop to "out of box" condition, or to erase the hard drive. In addition, every search I've done on this error message references a recovery console, yet I cannot seem to find one.

I have several very important documents that I did not back up. Also, this happened after I shut the laptop down and put it in my laptop backback (in a nylon zipped pocket) and wonder if it could have overheated? I'm dreading the possibility that my documents cannot be retrieved.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Specifically I need to know if and how I can get to the recovery console (I've tried F8 to no avail).

Please help...


Answer:Toshiba Satellite Can't Find Recovery Console

Hi, and welcome to TSF!

You need to borrow a Windows CD because the Toshiba recovery disk does not have the recovery console on it. This will allow you to run the recovery console.

I turned on my laptop running windows 8 and the backlight lit up but there was no display. I could hear it turning on and the indicator light came on. When connected to an external monitor, the display was just fine. I did some research, opened it up and disconnected and reconnected a few things (which I do often) and closed it back up. When I tried to turn it on this morning it was unresponsive. When connected to the ac adapter the charging light will turn on but the power button does not turn the laptop on. I desperately need this laptop for school, it's beyond it's warranty and I don't have the money to get it serviced. If I can find the source of the problem I'm open to replacing said part as long as it's not more expensive than sending it out to Toshiba.

I've since taken the entire thing apart. The only things connected are the motherboard and CPU, both of which I've taken out and cleaned (fan was gross but I digress). I'm handy enough to be able to put it back together correctly and I know the basic parts, but I was hoping that someone could walk me though some troubleshooting as I put it back together. Or if that's not how it's done, maybe someone can help me take it apart in the right order to isolate the problem part once I get it back together.

Hello all. I am very new here. By very new I mean this is my first time posting on a Tech forum. I very often search for answers and appears a lot with solutions to practically every question I can think of.
Today I am stumped and running short on time.

My colleague from work, who is quite poor with computers and setting up and stuff, so I told him I would help him by removing Vista from his system and installing windows XP.
I know that this day and age I should be upgrading him to Windows 7, but I dont have that CD.

What I have done is this:

Installed a Windows XP Professional for a DELL onto his Toshiba Satellite A100-033.
I already knew (thanks to forums) that I would need to install the drivers for many of the devices after Windows XP installed. Oh I should mention, When installing XP I deleted the partition that originally hosted Vista, and formatted the drive to NTSF (forgive me if the arconym isnt exactly correct).
After installing XP, I searched Device Manager for the yellow ? marks. I currently have 7 yellows:

+ ? Other devices
- ? Ethernet Controller
- ? Ethernet Controller
- ? Mass Storage Controller
- ? PCI Device
- ? SM Bus Controller
- ? Video Controller
- ? Video Controller (VGA Compatible)

I have searched tirelessly for the drivers.

However, I thought I could find them somewhere else in the WWWeb.
Unfortunately I could not.
I found some unlicensed program which suppose... Read more

Answer:Need to find Toshiba Satellite A100-033 drivers? Do they still exist?

If the PC you are working on was bought with Vista pre-installed on, then installing XP should be ok as far as the hardware is concerned.
You can try a program to automatically do the searching for you, but it's not always 100% correct, and you may be left with a few to find.
This one seems to work fairly well;
You will need the product key that was supplied with the installation disc, to activate windows.
You should be able to get the Video card driver from either Nvidia or AMD (or SIS), from the information in 'Device manager'. the 'update driver' option can work, but sometimes has been known to download an old version of the driver.

If you are not able to recover the notebook using the HDD recovery, then you will have to recover the notebook using Recovery disk.

Toshiba Easy Guard is not a single too but a collection of different notebook properties which secures your notebook.
Check this Toshiba page about easy guard:

The Toshiba Assist button would start the Toshiba Assist tool:

You can optimize the button in this way:

PCheath monitor
Eco utilities

Are just some of the installed software on the computer and I want to know should I just get rid of them to save CPU and space?


Answer:Toshiba tools are useful?

Hi buddy,

Generally speaking you can remove all Toshiba tools that you don?t want. It?s your notebook and your decision what you install or not.

Description of PC health monitor:
The software program monitors computer system functions such as power consumption, the cooling system and HDD Drop sensor. It alerts users of specific system conditions via pop-up messages. It also tracks the usage of the computer and related devices, logging the service relevant information on the computer's hard disk drive.

Description of Eco Utility:
Helps you monitor your power savings by showing approximate real time power consumption. Furthermore, it shows approximate accumulated power consumption and approximate accumulated power savings when using eco mode daily, weekly, and monthly. You can track power savings by using eco mode continuously.

As you can read they are useful tools? What do you think?

Maybe I missed it, but I did not find any tool for automatic updating of a dozen or so programs that were preinstalled with the laptop. There are two problems with this:

1. There is no easy way to check the version currently installed
2. There are many programs

Maybe I am too lazy, under Fedora you just type "yum update" or something similar and every package that came with the system gets up-to-date. I am not demanding this for software I have installed on my own, firstly because I know what version I have installed and secondly, I know where to get updates.

But if you ship a ton of craplets with the system, it would be nice to make updating these as painless as possible.

Hi Julian

I understand your point of view very well but may I ask why to hell want you update all the applications?
Do you have any problems???

Of course, Toshiba provide many applications for several features but I don?t see any reasons for updates if everything works.

But you should always update the Windows OS. This is true.

There is a "hidden partition", but if I use that to recover it installs all the tools and software.
Luckily, there was a Vista Business DVD in the box.
So I would use that one.

Now my question: A few of the tools (Toshiba HDD-protection, Fingerprint-Software) seem useful and I'd like to reinstall them once it's all running again. Where can I download them? I did only find drivers on the Toshiba website.

Thank you very much!

> Luckily, there was a Vista Business DVD in the box. So I would use that one.

This is very strange because as far as I know the Toshiba notebooks are delivered only with the Toshiba recovery CD and not with an original Microsoft Vista CD.
If you want to use this Recovery CD you will get the same preinstalled OS with all drivers and tools like at the beginning.

In my opinion you should simply remove not necessary tools and utilities from the OS and don?t install the OS again!
For registry cleaning I would recommend using the freeware program called ?CCleaner?!!!

Answer:Toshiba USA has Windows 7 upgrade / clean install tools

Hi! I've tried to install the clean install utility, it seems to recognize my model (which is Satellite A 200 PSAECE) but I get the following error :

Error: The requested action with this object has failed
( this happens when it creates the restore point)
I'm going to see if there are any new software for my model, since it seems toshiba is releasing drivers

I have a Satellite A100-771 and installed Windows XP Professional with SP2.
Afterwards I installed all drivers. After that I wanted to install the Toshiba Utilities and have got an error message : "Toshiba common Module not found! This setup will terminate."
Furthermore I tried to install the Power Saver Tool, which is more important as the uilities I think. And here I have got the error message: "A fatal error has occurred. This program will be terminated. Code:0x7E"
I am not sure what I can do else. I also installed the hotfixes for Windows which are on the ToolCD from Toshiba. But the problem is still there.
The difference between both errors is that the installation of the utilities setup stop before finishing installation. On the Power Safer installation, it finished on 100% and terminate the setup or the program after the installation.

May somebody can help me.


Answer:Error when installing Toshiba Tools and Power Saver

There is a specific order that the Toshiba utilities and drivers have to be loaded in. This list is on the Toshiba download page, and the common modules is one the first utilities that has to be loaded for the others to work

Answer:Toshiba Software - Can I remove useless tools and utilities?

I agree with you. There is some useless Toshiba specific stuff and some of them can be removed.
It would be easier if you can post which of them you want to remove from the system and I will try to help you with this.
>i didnt got my copy of W7HP...
Generally speaking everything is explained in ?User?s Manuals? document. Please follow advice about recovery disc creation. Create recovery DVDs using preinstalled ?Toshiba recovery disc creator?. I recommend you to use DVD-R discs only. Of course not some cheap no-name product but high quality discs from TDK or Verbatim.

Have successfully installed Vista business on an M2 (upgraded to 1 gig RAM) and it is running fine. Took me some time to find the appropriate Nvidia GO FX5200 driver but all is good. Unfortunately I am unable to install any of the Toshiba tools/software- Eg Toshiba Control Panel, config free etc etc.

There is no VISTA compatible software for M2 provided by Toshiba that I can see and while I did read a thread indicating an M2 user had successfully installed the M4 provided Toshiba tools, I get an an error telling me that I am installing them on the wrong model. Anyone know a way around this or have any ideas that could help me. Thanks

I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop. I think it became infected with ad ware. I removed the ad ware with anti virus software, but now my laptop runs very slow. I'm trying to use my Toshiba recovery disk to erase everything and reboot the whole computer. when I put in the recovery disk in, it starts the process but then it says NTLDR is missing and wont complete the process.Is there anyone out there who knows what this means and could help me with this.

It's a A-100/A 105 model

Here I'd like to say that Toshiba software (the utilities, which come within laptops) is poor, unstable and mostly useless. I think it makes sense to make an appeal to Toshiba management to stop treat us with such the ugly software.

For example: In my new Toshiba laptop LAN/WLAN profile utility (the only useful program) did not work. After I uninstalled some of Toshiba utilities, it did not remove their shortcuts form programs menu and I also can see their icons left in notification area settings.

Moreover, some of utilities did not work from start (like Toshiba Disk Creator). Also Toshiba utilities are very different, badly described and localized, do not seem each other and their shortcuts are mixed up in Programs menu with shortcuts to documentation.

Answer:WLAN profile utility doesn't start after removing some Toshiba tools

Hi buddy,

To be honest I don?t understand why people only post the negative side of preinstalled Toshiba utilities? Do you also noticed that they make your life (computing) easier?

I don?t want to count every Toshiba tool but they provide useful functions like CD burning, hardware diagnostic, assistant for LAN/WLAN connection and so far.

If you don?t like it, nobody said that you have to use them. Uninstall it and be happy with your notebook. :)

Regarding your problem:
I don?t know why the tool don?t work anymore because you didn?t post the exact name of it and what tools you have removed but do you mean ConfigFree? The program is useful for WLAN/LAN connections so try reinstalling it from Toshiba page.

Thanks.Doug T.Helena, MT

Answer:Cannot find Tools in Windows 7 !!!!!

What sort of 'tools' did you want to use? I suspect you may be referring to a piece of software that you had on a previous computer, as Win7, & previous versions all have tools but they don't appear as a toolbar as standard, they are all within the system."I've always been mad, I know I've been mad, like the most of us..."

About two nights ago while downloading a video, my computer (Dell, Vista, 32 bit, 3GB) caught a virus that has completely disabled my Windows security center. I get a message when I try to turn it on that "The Security Center service can't be started". The virus has also turned off real-time scanning on McAfee and will not let me update it. A little bit after infection, everything appeared to be ok in normal mode except running slightly slower. In safe mode, the problem mentioned above is obvious. I did a system restore to a restore point from last week, but nothing really changed. I have run scans with Spybot, Avast, Superantispyware, Malwarebytes, a non-updated McAfee, and tried rkill. None of these methods have produced any indication of an infection. Note: I downloaded and used these programs in safe mode with networking. Upon recommendation of someone on a different site after posting my problem, I downloaded and used Combofix (fortunately, it doesn't look like anything was seriously messed up from this possible unwise decision). I got a message that I needed to enter an administrator command prompt before and during the scan. After the scan, Combofix did not seem to find anything. So, I am now left to wonder what I have going on in my computer and what can be done about it. I've had a similar problem in the past with a different computer and ended up with the infamous blue screen of death. I would like to avoid that with this computer, but I would ... Read more

I am trying to create training for Windows Server Tools. It is a bit frustrating because many tools have no authoritative reference. Find is one of these orphans. My list of tools includes Grep and Qgrep as well. I had thought to exclude the grep family as these seem to be redundant. But now I am wondering if Find is is the one I should drop. I would have users combine Find, grep, or Qgrep with such tools as sc, sclist, and others to filter output.

If anyone has any advice about which to use, I would love to hear from them.

And seriously, what is the deal with Find.exe as a virus? I found a virus alert, on this site (, describing Find.exe as such. Did someone create a virus that takes on this file name?

I am trying to compare 2 PDF documents - which are about 95% the same but there are a few changes here and there, and I really need to find them.

The documents are just text, no tables or images or other crap that could be interfering with this.

I have tried a few different programs including Draftable Compare and DiffPDF - but they all report NO DIFFERENCES.

The crazy part is you can clearly see in the preview panes, that there are differences (ie one document the first sentence on page 20 might read "20 notebook computers" in one version of the doc, but that line reads "20 laptops" in another version of the doc - yet all these compare PDF utilities don't seem to notice the difference.

Has anyone else run into this before? Any advice on how I can get it working?

Answer:Trying to compare 2 PDFs, all tools find no differences... need help

I think Acrobat can do it..

PDFs are a bundle of crap in their behind the scenes formatting. Hells bells some PDF docs are actually just images and not even text! It's not easy peasy like a text doc.

It may be worth converting them out to something like a word doc then doing the compare.
