Lost command line -- line with site addresses WinXP

Q: Lost command line -- line with site addresses WinXP

Somehow the line that you put web sites -- after the http --has disappeared. I'm sure that there's a simple way to get it back but I'm new to WIN XP. Can someone help.

Preferred Solution: Lost command line -- line with site addresses WinXP

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.)

A: Lost command line -- line with site addresses WinXP

I think you are talking about the address bar in a web browser???

You did not mention what browser you are using. For Internet Explorer 6, right click in any other visible menu bar and then make sure that "Address Bar" is checked in the box that pops up. This may work for other versions of Internet Explorer.

Hi ,

I was wondering if anyone knows how, on a Windows NT4 workstation, to remove WINS address by command line or something automatic I can run in a domain logon script as before I started to work here, the WINS addresses were set as static so I need to remove on all Windows NT machines.....

now I know netsh.exe is fine for Windows 2K/XP but I am lost when it comes to NT - how do I do it???????? I read somewhere that there was a version of netsh.exe in the Windows NT Resource kit but I got the NT 4.0 server resource kit and it wasn't in it.

Could anyone please help????

I want to hide this. I'm running a python progam (if that matters) and it always has that open on my taskbar. I want to hide it. I don't care where it goes or how much time it takes, I just want to hide it. So I never have to deal with it. Maybe make it a system process or something? I don't know.

[Relevant OS here is XP sp2.] Hi! Norton Internet Security 2004 (which includes NAV) Live Update stopped working right on my parent's PC, couldn't be remedied, and I decided it was time to get rid of the beast as I had long meant to anyway, and put on AVG and one of the reputable free firewalls.

Knowing that for some tricky programs it's best to stop its services before uninstalling (e.g. zone alarm), I turned off all norton in msconfig and rebooted. That's apparently what caused my problem to begin -- guess norton services need to be left on to start an uninstall. It wouldn't uninstall, and only later did I see at the symantec site that the error message I was getting is often caused by services being stopped when uninstalling this product: "Error: A Norton Internet Security account with Supervisor access must be logged in... when uninstalling Norton Internet Security..." (Which was not accurate since I was logged on as sup/admin.)

I did manage to uninstall most lesser, "peripheral" norton components using Reg Cleaner free. Then, feeling fed up, I decided to be hasty (and insane?) and assume I could uninstall the primary parts by picking what I needed to out of Windows Explorer and the registry. After awhile it hit me how stoopid that was, since norton is so notorious for leaving leftovers that interfere with future security progs even when uninstalled properly. And, I saw that if I had checked symantec's site after first ... Read more

Hi everyone, what is the commmand for command prompt to stop a process? What i would like to do is make a shortcut to stop the KBD.exe process. The reason for that is when someone in my family puts a disk in, plays a game, and sometimes when they take the disk out it complains about there being no disk in the drive. The only way to shut it up is to end the process in the task manager and click cancel on the window. This way is a little to complicated for some of the memebers of my family and i would like to be able to just create a shortcut for it.

I'm trying to split a .flv file by using flvparse, which is a Windows-only, command-line interface tool. I did get through to the directory by following instructions posted on another forum, however, command prompt doesn't seem to recognize the the .exe file. I'm an absolute novice at this, any help would be really appreciated!

Attaching a CP s/s, and here are the instructions I'm trying to follow (copy pasted from the forum)


For trimming the beginning and/or ending of videos, you can use FLVParser (http://dev2.avacast.com/FLVparser.zip ).
FLVParser is a Windows-only, command-line interface tool. After you unzip it, move its folder to C:\ for ease of use. Also for ease of use, copy/move the .flv file you wish to edit into the FLVParse folder.
To make edits, you need to know the in and out points where you want the edits. Use FLVPlayer to find these points. FLVPLayer only lists times in total number of seconds, not HH:MM:SS, but don't worry, FLVParser can handle that. In the FLVParse directory create a new blank text file called: CuePointFile.dat
This is the file FLVParser uses to edit from. Open it in NotePad, and enter the in point and out point, separated by a single blank space, like so: 2525 5150
Save, and close the file. Open up the command line interface and go to the FLVParse directory: cd C:\FLVParse
In the command line, enter this to edit the flv:
flvparse.exe FileToSplit.flv CuePointFile.dat
Your file will be split into ... Read more

Not sure if this is the right place to post this but I wanted to ask a tricky question.

I want to be able to access another PC via telnet (this I can do easily via RADMIN software) which gives the the CMD prompt access.

I then want to be able to launch a Sound file (or similiar) so that the user on the other end just hears whatever sound I have triggered (i.e. it doesn't have to launch WMP or similiar software).

Any ideas on how to do this?

I know it can be done as a clever guy I used to work with set it up and it was quite comical in the office when he was able to trigger cow noises, etc from anyone's PC by remoting in via the backend.

Hi there-

Just reorganising my Library and for reasons I won't bore you with, need to do some mass amendments to Filenames to get rid of extraneous Info as I'm tight on Space.

So, for instance, I have a Folder (DIRectory) with one hundred PDF, Mobi, RAR, ZIP, CBR and CBZ files in it all with filenames in the following format :-

Henry Rider Haggard (Victorian Novelist, Africa Hand) [Title of Short Story/Novel/Graphic Novel].???

As :-

a) I do happen to know who H Rider Haggard is (having read my first book of his 55 years ago when I was Ten)
b) All the Files are going to go into a Directory (Folder) Entitled "Henry Rider Haggard" (in case I suddenly get struck down with Oldtimer's disease)

then I want to get rid of the words "Henry Rider Haggard (Victorian Novelist, Africa Hand)" which is common to every Filename.

My latest attempt at a Command Line blanket change from within the Folder (Directory) was the DOS command -

REN "Henry Rider Haggard (Victorian Novelist, Africa Hand)"*.??? *.???

I have also tried :-

Using the different extensions (.CBR .ZIP .RAR etc ) to change them 20 or 30 at a time
Using the same Format but *.* instead of *.???
Using no Inverted Commas on the part of the Description that I want to get rid of

Yes, I DO realise that in the time I have spent fiddling about with Command Line and composing this Post I COULD have done the whole thing Manually, BUT I have Sixty Five separate Authors to create Directories (Folders)... Read more

I was given a laptop to try an repair. None of the applications would open, it either asked how you want to open it or say no application found. After several tries I was able to do a virus scan. Couple Trojans and virus. Still no change in laptop. I googled the question and found someone asking a question with similar problem & was told to download this scan. I figured I had nothing to lose the laptop wasn't working so I outsmarted the virus & downloaded the program... After downloading, it needed to reboot. but before I allowed it to reboot I noticed the applications suddenly working... Rebooted & scanned. Its came up with 4 Trojans, 4 viruses & over 200 accounts of spyware. To remove them was $40 with $30 mail in rebate... My friend suggested that what I had downloaded was one of those scams that give you the Trojan & make you think they are getting rid of it for a price. They suggested I do a killdisk to wipe out the HDD and reinstall the OS.
Killdisk worked, it says I need to do a FDISK & FORMAT before I can download the new OS. I can't figure out how to do that. I get a blank black screen with a curser but it won't take any code. I have tried downloading the OS (windows XP) and it says it can't find any hard disk drives.

Dear TS,

Currently I am working in access, fine tuning a little database.
In this little proggie I have made a button that directly links to a .bat-file that does nothing but open the folder H:/foto (Dutch)

In that folder are several kinds of criminal offenses.

It works like this for the user:

They click the photo-button, the folder opens and they will find by manual search the picture corresponding to the crime report. the pictures in that folder are ordered in sub-categories for a clear view.

What I'd d like to achieve is that the security-officials ONLY type something like "stepped on no-stepping-on-grass-sign" in a text bar and that they then click the photo-button and the H:/foto/stepped on no-stepping-on-grass-sign folder opens.

I know the idea of typing (part of a) directory and then press a button is just as lame as just viewing a folder that has only 25 sub folders anyway, but it's just what the security-officials want...

Thank you very much for your attention and help,

A:Need some help on command line pls.

You are roughly right. When you open the DOS box, it will automatically be logged on the current user's account: C:\Documents and Settings\Account Name\

from there, change to the folder where the file or shortcut is located (for example, type CD Desktop, then press [ENTER]. Then type DEL (name of file or shorcut) and press [ENTER]

For stubborn files which won't delete while Windows is running, open the DOS box then end the EXPLORER.EXE process which quits the Windows shell but leaves the DOS box open for you to issue the DEL command on the stubborn file. When done, bring up the task-manager again (CTRL-ALT-DEL), log-off then log-on to restart the Windows shell.

If I have created a new folder on my C: file and named it: "Odd Bods" for example.

Using the DEL Command Prompt in XP, what is the exact syntax to forcibly delete it?

I have tried by opening the Command Prompt and typing in "CD \" then enter to bring up the cursor "C:\>". Then I have typed: "Del /F Odd Bods" and "enter". The message then comes up; "Are you sure? y/n". I then type: "y" and enter, but the folder is not deleted.


A:DEL command line

If folder is on desktop:

Enter 'cmd /k' (no quotes)
Enter 'cd\' (will get you the C:\ prompt)
Enter 'cd\Documents and Settings\{your user name}\Desktop'
Enter 'dir /w'

If you can see the item, Enter 'erase [filename]'

del [filename] also works - for a directory (maybe folders too) RD [directory] works

edit: if you do the Start, run, cmd /k thing then type 'help' you'll get a list of the limited MSDOS commands remaining in the poor excuse for DOS XP supports.

For details on those, type, for example, 'help del' and you'll get the possible options.

I've been messing around with the ftp program in Windows XP's command prompt, and I've got something odd happening.

Hello all-

I have two Windows XP -- one Home, one Professional -- machines attempting to connect wirelessly to a vanilla Netgear access point. The XP Pro machine connects fine. The XP Home machine sees the Wi-Fi network, connects, accepts the password, and says it's connected -- but Web browsers and other Windows network apps will not connect to the Internet (they just hang for a long time before timing out).

But! If I open a command prompt, I can ping external sites and even use command-line ftp to connect to sites without a problem!

I've gone over the network configuration of both machines and can't see any difference between the two. The Netgear access point doesn't have any kind of MAC address filtering turned on. Is there something I should be looking for that I'm missing?

As an extra added strange data point -- I've tried to connect to the network via a Mac OS X machine and saw the same behavior as on the XP Home machine -- GUI-based programs won't connect, but command-line utilities will. Meanwhile, an Apple iPhone was able to connect and work perfectly.

Thanks in advance for any advice!

I had that problem once. It may have been dragged to the far right so it is not visible. If you unlock the toolbar (right-click, unlock) then try dragging any toolbars back on from the side.

Hi Folks,

I am experiencing what I believe is a bug with UAC in Windows 7.

I would like to see if anyone can recreate this issue and tell me if it is a bug or is working as expected.

To recreate the issue:

1. Confirm the following local security policy setting is Enabled. Local Policies -> Security Options -> User Account Control: Run all administrators in admin approval mode.

2. Launch a command prompt and open a new elevated command prompt with this command: runas /user:<domain>\<user> cmd.exe

3. Once the new window opens, navigate to your C: directory via My Computer. Once at C: attempt to create a new text document by right click and selecting new. If my suspicion is correct, you will have lost nearly all access to the C: directory.

4. To fix this permission issue, disable the setting mentioned in step 1. Reboot will be required.

Is this working as intended? Is this a bug? I have not come across any thread or document that discusses this issue being caused by the runas command.

I assume the issue is with UAC's admin approval mode, as the disabling admin approval mode appears to resolve the issue.

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

Nice first post. It is always good to see steps to reproduce the problem. In this case, you do not need step 2 to be able to see what you are seeing (which is normal).

1) enable policy (which is enabled by default)
2) use Windows (file) Explorer to navigate to the root of the system drive
3) right click > New
(the only option in the default context menu will be Folder)

This is by design because Windows (file) Explorer is running at the medium integrity level. If you start explorer.exe via "run as admin", it will run at the high integrity level and you will have the complete "New" context menu.

I am working through a FBI virus notebook running Windows 7.

Using Kickstart I know which files I need to remove.

The file is "skype.dat" in the App Data\Roaming folder.

When I go into command prompt from the Repair Console the App data folder is hidden.

I'm currently trying the shards attribute but I'm getting alot of "access denied" reports from tmp files. I can't tell if it's endlessly looping or if it has yet to run through the entire folder.

Is there another way to get into this folder? I've done this process several times before but this is the first time I've been unable to access the App Data folder. There isn't a password set for the user.

I remember now that I'm signed on as the user...I've no idea if it's an admin account or not. I'll try to access another account and work at it from that angle.

My question is this: What would the proper DOS command be to make hidden folders visible? Not just visible but also to manipulate them and the files within? Is the -s-h-a-r/d/s the only way?

A:Solved: Command line help!!!

EDIT: Figured it out. Thanks anyway.

Help please I am pulling my hair out.

I use a desktop shortcut to run an application called get_iplayer.cmd located in the directory c:\program files\get_iplayer

The line in the Target of the shortcut properties therefore reads:

C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe /k "c:\program files\get_iplayer\get_iplayer.cmd"

When the shortcut is run (as administrator) the following lines are returned:

'c:\program' is not a recognized internal or external command, operable program or batch file
However if I repeat the command again by running cmd and use CD to get to manually change directories the program runs as expected.

What is going wrong?

A:What is wrong with this command line?

This is the dreaded space in the filename issue. When you run a command with spaces in the path you must double up the double quotes as shown in the example
"Spaces in Program Path:"
CMD.exe (Command Shell) | Windows CMD | SS64.com

Anyone know of a fairly easy to use command line program that'll allow me to connect to these networks. I've tried CenterICQ, I can connect and see my list etc, but I cannot seem to send or recieve messages. Maybe if someone could explain that would be great, else, an easier one would be nice.

It needs to work on Windows XP (Pro) SP2.

I am using Visual C++ 2010 Express. My main program starts

int APIENTRY _tWinMain(HINSTANCE hInstance,
HINSTANCE hPrevInstance,
LPTSTR lpCmdLine,
int nCmdShow)

I want to be able to set some parameters on the command line when the program is executed, probably from a shortcut with the appropriate values set there.
However, when I look at the last two items nCmdShow is 1, and lpCmdLine is blank.
I have tried using GetCommandLine and that has also returned a blank string.

I have tried adding a parameter to the properties of the shortcut but this has made no difference.
Am I missing something?

A:Command line parameters in C++

I'm not a C++ programmer, but my understanding is you need to have a main() function declared which holds to parameters: the number of command line arguments and an array of their values.
