Unable to install Microsoft Fix It ( MicrosoftProgram_Install_and_Uninstall.meta.diagcab)

Q: Unable to install Microsoft Fix It ( MicrosoftProgram_Install_and_Uninstall.meta.diagcab)

Hi Team,
I wanted to uninstall Corrupted Java from my windows server 2008. As part of that I have copied the file
"MicrosoftProgram_Install_and_Uninstall.meta.diagcab" in that machine. When I double click the file it opens and asking me to select a program from a list.
But the same file I can install in my other servers.
Is there any specific software we need to install in the server to install diagcab extension files ?

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.)

When attempting to install the .Net Framework: I received the following message:
“Microsoft .Net Framework 2.0 has encountered a problem during setup. Setup did not complete correctly.”

Another dialogue box then indicated:
Patch packet could not be opened. Verify that the patch packet exists or that you can access it or contact the application vendor that this is a valid windows installer patch

I then attempted to run the Windows Update. Instead of installing, an error message indicated that some of the updates were not installed:
Microsoft .Net Framework 2.0 Service Pack 1 (KB110806)

Therefore, I am unable to install Microsoft business contacts, Microsoft accounting 2008 and more. Plz advise

I am having a problem with installing Microsoft Updates and am concerned that it may be caused by spyware on my computer. I am able to download the updates ok, but then when the download is complete an error message automatically pops up saying that the update was unable to be installed. I am using Windows XP, which had to be reinstalled at the beginning of this year due to a crash when trying to install SP2. I have been trying to install all of the 37 updates that were erased as a result of the crash, and keep running across this problem. Thanks in advance for any assistance/advice.

Hi and Welcome to TSF

Before attacking an adware/spyware problem with hijackthis make sure you have already run the following tools. Download and update the databases on each program before running. Ad-Aware? SE Personal Edition
Spybot Search & Destroy

Also make sure you are using the the latest version (1.99.1) of HijackThis and it's installed in it's own folder on the root drive. (C:\HJT)

After you run all those programs...download hijackthis and do a scan. Save the log and post it in this thread.

*Please go here (Microsoft website) using Internet Explorer ( not Firefox or any other browser as they won't work)
*Click on "Windows Validation Assistant"
*Click on the "Validate Now" button.
*Be patient while the ActiveX loads, do not click on any links.
*Read the instructions on this page while it's loading. You will be prompted to install - click YES.
*Enter your product key then click "continue"
*When it says "Validation Complete" please click "Continue to return to your previous activity"
*Copy what it says and paste it here

Recently after a Hard Drive went `belly up` I bought a new HD, re-installed Windows XP and step by step re-installed my software and games as I needed them. I installed MS Flight Simulator 2004 which went OK and I`m flying well. Then I decided to reinstall Combat Flight Simulator 3 but keep getting an error "Microsoft Games AutoRun/Setup has encountered a problem and needs to close cetc etc etc". In details the cause is always ebu.exe.sometimes it has a number ie ebu3.exe but always ebu.exe.
I`ve tried everything I can, reinstalled windows, virus scanned, adware scanned, easycleaned, scandisk - you name it I`ve done it but still I can`t get past this error.
I tried CFS.2 and that came up with the FS2004 splashscreen - CFS.1 had a number of rerasons why THAT couldn`t install and finally I tried Flight Simulator 2002 and back came the ebu.exe error.
I would be more than grateful for any advice and am prepared to try anything tp overcome this problem. I don`t want to format and reinstall windows if I can help it `cos I don`t know if that wopuld be the solution.
Look forward to your comments
Many thanks

For several months, I have trying to install Microsoft.Net Framework 1.1 SP1 Security Update for Windows 2000 & XP (KB979906). How can I resolve this issue?


A:Unable to install Microsoft.NET Framework 1.1

Do you need it ? If not, I'd just turn it off. Troubleshooting .NET is a mess. It's not like standard programs that you can simply Add/Remove.

If you need it, want to learn, or are very stubborn, try this:

I'm unable to install Microsoft Security Essentials. This system experienced an unexpected loss of power after being unplugged from the wall. Microsoft Security Essentials refuses to install exiting with the error code 0x80070645. 
I searched Google and came across this Knowledge Base article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2483120, I followed the instructions, and removed the registry keys, however I'm still unable to install MSE. I've also tried the FixIt, but that doesn't resolve the issue either. 
I came across HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft Antimalware Setup, and so I thought "This might be causing that error." However, my attempts to remove this key, and the subkeys fails with the error message : Cannot delete Microsoft Antimalware Setup : Error while deleting key. 
After searching Google for Error while deleting key, I came across this Knowledge Base article : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2021860, I followed the instructions and downloaded RegDelNull, however that gives me this error message : A null context handle was passed from the client to the host during a remote procedure call.

After recent full system recovery caused by one or more virus, I am unable to re-install Microsoft Word or Word Perfect on my Compaq Presario, which has Windows XP. Microsoft Word will sometimes start the process but then just stops, giving no indication of what steps to take next or what the problem is. Word Perfect seems to start the process each time but then gets hung up with updating what it describes as the SHFolder.dll. Have waited as long as 20 minutes for this update. The screen does show activity but it just never seems to get done. I cannot take the installation process past that point.

Any suggestions on how I can correct or cure this problem?

A:Unable to install either Microsoft Word or Word Perfect

Check here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/q303437/ for some help - probably the .dll is either corrupt or the path not recognized. Depending on whether or not this page helps, either fix it with that or lookup SHFolder.dll. on the net and download a new copy from somewhere like http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-files.shtml?shfolder and install it.

A:What are .meta files for?

Metafiles hold all the data that defines the content of the file. e.g. for a picture, you will find date taken, dimensions, pixels, etc. Have a look into Properties of a picture under the "Details tab". That's the kind of info stored in the metadata.

Being new to the whole SEO and SEM world, I do a lot of looking around and such. I recently ran across a couple things I wasn't sure about - so here I am asking for help once again.

Has anyone heard of a new meta tag called aesop?

<meta name=aesop content=links>

It's supposed to be a 'pick one of a half dozen catagories' type of meta tag that will be used in the near future by many search engines.

I ran across several sites that mentioned it, and some said that it was going to become a standard throughout the search engine industry. I did look at aesop.com, and it just looks to me like it's another new 'search engine wanna-be' site, but I've also seen it listed other places. I know that their sql database isn't even on line yet, but if there is going to be a future meta tag that means something to the search engine world - I'd like to know ahead of time.

One article I read here:

was one that made me wonder. (yes, bigmoneymadeeasy.com does set off some red flags in my head as far as how valid the info is)

If anyone else has any info, I'd be interested in knowing about it.

Also, the meta tag "key phrases" has been mentioned several times, - anyone with info on this one?

A:New Meta tags

If you want information about HTML, go to www.w3.org

The World Wide Web Consortium are the guys who make sure everyone keeps to the same standards when programming for the net. Therefore, they are a lot more reputable when it comes to querys about HTML than "bigmoneymadeeasy" dot com.

My advice? Stick with good old fashioned keywords and descriptions.

ok i recently got an old laptop, which is perfect for goin on th internet and not worrying about spyware etc. anyway i noticed that alot of websites i couldn't get onto, such as www.ebuyer.com , were ok on other PCs and not offline as i had thought. whats weird is that i dont the "page cannot be displayed" page, instead i just get a white page with "done" in the bottom left. i viewed the sorce for the site and found it all there, so i decided to try deleting the meta tags from the top of th html, and then i saved it as new.html. this made it work (apart from some pictures which obviously now had invalid URLs). i then thought it might just be my browser not reistering meta tags, so i tried IE7 but that didnt help, so i reverted to IE6, but also alot of email's i recieved in outlook 2002 (outlook XP)also had the same problem, but also similar solutions.

thaks for taking the time to read and please can some1 get back to me soon.

Hello, I read your previous post about this trojan here:


and downloaded the sdfix.rar, extracted it, then ran it in safe mode. It looked like it worked but one day later, the trojan came back. So then I downloaded right off the norton site unhookexec.inf, turned off windows restore, updated my definitions (I have NIS 2005 by the way), and ran a full system scan. Norton came up with nothing yet I still get a stupid fake popup that brings me to the site that created the trojan to begin with! Every time the trojan executes, norton can't delete it because it's in use, so it says access was denied. It does however, delete the files meta.juan tries to duplicate itself at. The Norton site says that meta.juan is a very low risk but somehow it was able to install a rootkit so deep into my computer that it was able to successfully hide all the registry files and the ie5 folder that its hiding in. I cannot stress how much this thing is bugging me because it periodically crashes my computer and does something to make my restarts fail 60% of the time. It's probably another trojan or virus doing that but norton only detects meta.juan. Please help me. Your my last lifeline before I have to reformat my computer which I really don't want to do.

Here's my hijackthis report:

I'm looking for something that can wipe meta-data from pictures and documents. I have seen many, many tutorials on the internet about it and have found many products with a simple Google Search but my Norton always ends up telling me its a virus then removes it from my system. So what are some good free options?

A:Wipe meta data

It isn't free and not sure how much it costs but ExifCleaner will clear images.

As far as I know, the metadata (album/artist/year/etc.) is what iTunes or, say, Foobar2000 or Windows Media Player uses to organize any readable and playable media. What in particular are you trying to do in making this particular group of MP3s a compilation? I mean, are you going to burn an MP3 CD (with the files in data format, I mean) or an organizational method that would put all of the MP3s you've stripped the metadata from in a single block?

Generally, unless you're sure the filenames will be enough to distinguish from each other and define the organization of your music files, it's not a great idea to strip every metadata tag from a batch of audio files you're going to be using in a media player that relies on tags. I know that's not helpful now seeing as you've already done the deed...for now, make sure you keep the MP3s in question in a folder by themselves, because without any metadata iTunes will have no idea how to organize them into anything (aside from their filenames).

Helping a friend remove meta.juan from her PC laptop-and we've tried EVERYTHING and have surfed around every forum and it won't die!

I went to Symantec's removal instructions and couldn't find the registry items they ask you to delete. I've run scans in safe mode with Symantec. I've run Ad Aware. It won't let me run Malwarebytes or spybot, and won't let me install AVG or much else.

Symantec has been able to identify the meta.juan, but can't remove it.

This virus causes some trouble with startup, and has corrupted firefox and internet explorer. It also plays random music that I don't recognize in the background when no player is running...ugh.

I deleted some suspicious registry items I found in forums with Hijackthis (which I renamed so it would run, which hasn't worked with any other program) and there are less startup problems, but the virus is still there.

I need some custom help ASAP! The friend who's computer is infected leaves for Spain on Wednesday!

This is very important! Urgent!

I produce several radio programs. I have two music libraries on two separate external hard drives. a 1T Toshiba and a WD My Book 3T, roughly about 800 G on each of music files. I bought a new HP slimeline before Christmas and when I connected the hard drives to the new computer I hard an access issue with the 3T drive. (I posted it here) It was an sharing/access thing. That was resolved. However, all the metadata on my music files was changed. All titles, artists, years track # was erased and the Album titles were all changed to "Now, That's What I Call Christmas Music". But it gets stranger. In the course of replacing the missing and incorrect metadata (Since xmas) I have discovered that now the other hard drive music data is changing. Not all of it like the other drive, but perhaps on song in an album or one album among many of an artist. and yes the new changes are still "Now That's What I Call Christmas Music".

Any ideas?
