ERROR using command prompt net view - System Error 64

Q: ERROR using command prompt net view - System Error 64

If I run Command Prompt net view I get "System Error 64 has occured" The specified network name is no longer available

Preferred Solution: ERROR using command prompt net view - System Error 64

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: ERROR using command prompt net view - System Error 64

You should specify a workgroup name or a computer name when you use this command, the command should be:

My computer at the loggin screen has an admin account witha strong pass and my account. Ive tried command prompt to try and change the admin password and even tried to delete it but all that shows up is "SYSTEM ERROR 5 HAS OCCURRED ACCESS DENIED". I also have another account on my computer mcx1 that i dont know about and cant even access. Please any help would be appreciated

A:Command Prompt System error 5

(Win32) Error 5 just means "access denied".

It sounds like you've lost all the administrative account credentials? In other words, you don't know how to log on as an admin? Is that the problem?

Hello everyone

Recently a problem has arisen with my system.

Previously I have been doing work that requires me to unplug my network connection and I need to check my IP address each time I plug it in again. I guess it's not set for static IP.
Anyways to do this I usually go into Command Prompt and type 'ipconfig'

Now however I just get "'ipconfig' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file".

The directory is the same as its always been, I can change it but it doesn't seem to matter what it is.

I've checked many other posts and is there something possibly wrong with my PATH variable? I used the command 'echo %PATH%' and it works, the list it gives is very garbled however.

I'm not sure what might have made this problem arise, but I would greatly appreciate any help.

I have searched every support site that I can think of and get zero hits that are similar.

I can't get any help from Microsoft because the OS is OEM version and the computer manufacturer doesn't have a clue what the problem might be.


A:Command Prompt (cmd.exe) error

Got run and type:

Command is a command file. Sounds like you may have something attached to the exefile open procedure.

If you are comfortable with your registry editing skills. Look here first.


The default value when you double click the

"%1" %*
(this includes the quotes)
If anything else is behind this you may have a virus.

If this is windows 2000 make sure that you don't have the lovsan worm or other variants that use the RPC vulnerability.

I'm trying to install a fix for an old program to run on my computer, running XP. I get to almost the end of the instructions and am supposed to activate the fix, which I have already inserted in the program file (Fractal Painter 4). But when I go to command prompt, instead of getting the expected "C:\>" I get "C:\Documents and Settings\Owner" and cannot delete it nor get the correct insert point. When I typed in the command to activate my program fix at the end of "...\Owner" it didn't work. How do I get just "C:\>" ? Thanks for any ideas!

Good Day!

This is my first post here in bleeping computer (technically second because I dropped a 'Hello' line for the new members thread) and I would first like to thank all active members and admins for giving countless hours to help others.

Now to my problem, I have been bothered for weeks by random popping of command prompts and saying that I have encountered an error in memory something something (I forgot the exact error message, I would post a screenshot once I get the error again). Just like 'pringles' once it pop... it never stop. The only way for it to stop is to reboot, although sometimes even if I reboot.. it comes back again and again and again. So, I decided to uninstall my corrupted AVG to install the latest version... only for me to find out that I can't uninstall it because an error keeps prompting on the uninstall screen. I also found out that I am the only one who can't access AVG's website. I managed to download the latest installer through CNET but I keep on getting a failed installation error for no clear reasons.

Here is the result of my dds.scr run:

My system has three OSes. Two Linux versions and Win XP-SP3. All of them are on different hard-disks of their own. On boot, i specify, which HD to boot from, in the boot menu from BIOS and accordingly boot from the respective Hard disk.

Most of the time, I use Win-XP. While shutting down the PC, i noticed that automatic updates were being installed. I accidentally happened to switch-off the power. Eversince, next boot, when i specify the Windows HD on boot menu, windows XP logo comes up and a blue screen appears and the system reboots to boot from Linux Disks (Default if I don't specify any disk from boot menu). I tried last working configuration, safe mode, safe mode with command prompt etc. But, same symptoms. I tried booting with WinXP CD. It tries loading the setup files and then comes to the blue screen with 0x0000007B error.

From, linux, i'm able to mount and see all the data and contents of the windows Disc.

Please help me to fix this. I need windows up and running badly. Thanks in Advance.

Please note, I do not have a floppy drive.


A:[SOLVED] Blue Screen Error with 0x0000007B, cannot get to command prompt, Win XP

Welcome to TSF, vrkrao :)

Part of Windows Update would include the monthly MSRT scan for viruses. If an infection was found in a System file like atapi.sys and removed by MSRT, it would lead to the 0x7B error you now see because the System file that was infected and now broken, is needed to boot Windows or that the (still infected) MBR points to a file that's been removed or modified.

The MRT.log (assuming it's written before shutdown), found in the Windows\Debug folder, should enable you to check whether the above fits your scenario, if so, it should detail which files were infected.

My boot record needs replacement. I have given the bootrec command from the install CD a few times now and get the disk not found error. Is this drive beyond boot repair? Would one of the tools like the NTDLeader tool or Hirens etc at least recognize the HD?

If unbootable I'd at least like to start the process of getting some data transferred using a different HD.

At the System Recover options of the installer CD, I don't get anything in the window for operating system.

These errors occurred when trying to clone one drive to another with Clonezilla, a Linux tool used to copy disks. It contains an option which I thought to refresh the boot sector. Such a command should not have effected the source disk but who knows.

Hi everyone,

After closing our Asus laptop 2 nights ago (but not shutting it down), BSOD appeared with the following message:
STOP: C0000135 The program cannot start because %hs is missing from your computer. Trying reinstalling the program.
I've tried many different recovery/repair attempts after looking through the forum for answers, but nothing seems to have worked. My last attempt was to retrieve the DMP files, but the computer won't reboot to accept the command (currently, default setting of "No DMP" is selected, unfortunately).

Here is the process when I start up the laptop:
- (F8 accesses the safe boot menu, otherwise, the following process is what usually occurs when I start up the laptop)
- "Starting Windows" message with icon
- BSOD with error message
- ASUS logo page
- Windows Error Recovery message (asks to Launch Startup Repair Tool or Launch Normally)
- "Windows is loading files page"
- "Windows Corp" page
- Startup Repair checks for problems and fails; sends info to Microsoft Corp about problem
- Startup Repair main window offers option of "View diagnostic and repair details" or "View advanced options for system recovery and support", or Shutdown, Finish, and Cancel

It seems that other than the 'dir' command, every command I run from my dos prompt, I get an "Access is denied." message.  Example:

I've checked my UAC settings and made sure they're set to "Never Notify".

I've also tried to run sfc.exe, but can't:
Access is denied.

Finally, I've tried to run cmd.exe as administrator, but no luck.
The one thing I've noticed is that if I go to cmd.exe's Properties and then the Security tab, I see that TrustedInstaller has Full control, but SYSTEM, Administrators and Users have only:

I've tried to change permissions by editing, but when I do so, I get an "Access is denied" message.

Is there a way of viewing them again so I can work out what they are and what might have caused them to appear? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I have a utility I run on some customers' machines that requires being run from safe mode. I already have the utility automated via batch, and would like to just run one SFX app and move on to the next machine, knowing that this app will reboot the machine into safe mode w/ command prompt, run my utility, and reboot the machine back into normal mode (the standard shutdown -r -t 01 is easy enough, but there are no modal options!). Also, if this can be done, how would I then make sure that the current user logs in automatically, rather than have safe mode stop at the log-in screen?

The utility in question is a simple "Common Software Package" which includes some software such as Reader and Flash. Some of the software included cannot be installed while an antivirus is running (at least any that have tamper-protection) due to the registry editing involved, but are completely positive in nature (one such software package simply checks the current registry vs. a backup it takes on each shutdown to look for any discrepancies, adjusted for installed software, of course). The packages do not require Windows Installer service to be running, so I have found SM w/ CP to be the best option.

Any help with this would be appreciated.

Was having some issues emptying the Recycle Bin. I found this article which tells you how to empty it via the command prompt. I rebooted into Safe Mode with Command Prompt and attempted to type in "rd /s c:\%systemdrive\$Recycle.bin" but something went wrong.

A comment on that same article says:

"Note that if someone mistypes this by putting a space after either the colon or backslash, most of the drive will be deleted, ending with lots of applications crashing then either a BSOD or reboot, followed by “NTLDR is missing”."

I must have typed something wrong because it started to delete files from the Windows directory immediately. I recently deleted a copy of Windows XP for my drive so I assumed this was what it was targeting. About a minute later I figured it out and immediately rebooted the computer. Booting into Windows in Safe or Normal mode yields a BSOD.

Windows Version: Windows 7 Home Premium w/ SP1 (all updates installed)
STOP: 0x0000006B (0x00000000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

Obviously Windows has lost a lot of core files. Is there any reason I should attempt to try and recover the system or will so much damage be done to other programs (who store files in the Windows directory) and Windows that a fresh install is my only real option?

A:A CMD Prompt Error Has Ravaged My System. Advice?

This is the type of thing where a backup image such as made by Macrium Reflect or another program would bail you out(for future reference.)

You might try a portable undelete such as Puran File Recovery if you can get hold of a boot image and put the image and Puran on a USB. Don't install on HD as that may overwrite deleted files. Puran is supposed to have folder recovery. It may be worth a shot if you can get someone to help with the USB stick prep.

If you recover many files then you might try sfc /scannow if the system boots or from repair disc.

I am trying to make a System level command prompt show up in the Context (right click) menu.

I have used the Ultimate Windows Context Menu Customizer to see if I can open up a System Command Prompt from the right-click menu. Here is my code that I used to make it show up in the context menu:
runas /user:HP\Administrator "C:\Users\____\Downloads\PSTools\psexec -hsi cmd.exe && /L /k pushd %L

If you notice, I use the Psexec tool to start the System Level command prompt. And the reason why I use the Administrator account is because the Psexec tool cannot work with out administrative privilages. And also to add a level of security to it so that only I can start this System CMD. The code sorta works; i.e. It shows up in the context menu. But it only works with folders. I want to see if anyone can edit my code so that it will work for files, such as a picture. To be more specific, I want to see if anyone can make code that will open CMD to the file Directory that the file I right-clicked is in. For example:

Picture A is in Directory C:\Users\User\Pictures\ If I right-click Picture A, and press System command prompt, I want it to open with the directory C:\Users\User\Pictures\

Can anyone Help me out? Thanks

In the past learned to run rstrui.exe from command prompt ..gives same response as above.

This is a PC dell all in one built on windows vista and upgraded to windows 7. Hard drive c and d labelled recovery.

Can't get to safe mode or anywhere to copy save files.

Any suggestions (note I am only a novice in this aspect of computers)

Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times

So, my original issue was that after installing an ubuntu partition on my computer, windows 7 would not go to sleep. After research I presumed this was caused by GRUB being installed in the windows MBR. I then made a system repair disk to run the fix boot and fix mbr commands. However, when I boot from the repair disk no operating systems are listed under the recovery option. If I try and proceed anyway to the command prompt, it won't let me type in the command prompt. I am unsure of what I should try next. I can still access my regular Windows 7 partition fine though.

A:Can't type in Command Prompt in System Recovery

Most Linux boot loaders save a copy of the MBR when installed. The boot loader, such as grub, should have a means to replace the MBR with the copy of the original. I'd ask on a grub user forum since the fix may be way simpler than doing it from the Windows side. Grub should know where it stored the MBR backup.

If I perform the boot from the DVD of Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64 bit and then I open the Command Prompt, I can run a bat file containing some reg commands to edit the system registry of Windows 7 SP1?

If not, how do I edit the system registry from the Windows 7 DVD?



A:Command Prompt of the DVD and editing the system registry


You can't use a batch file to edit the Registry from an install DVD, but you can load the offline Registry hive files and make necessary changes manually. For more info, please refer the below link.

Password Reset

The link i posted above contain instructions on how to reset forgotten passwords by editing the Registry offline. You can follow the same procedure to alter any other keys/values in the Registry.

Editing Registry incorrectly may render the system unstable/unusable or unbootable. You should know what you are doing before playing with the Registry.

A:Windows Command Prompt says The System Cannot find the Path Specified

Welcome to the Seven Forums!

Do you have that problem when you open a regular command prompt...
...or only when you open an administrative one?

Does the shortcut on the Start Menu look like this:

Edit: Do you have that problem when you open the Start Menu as shown in the video in my second post to this thread.
Try the steps in option two mentioned here:
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
If it finds/fixes stuff - be sure to run it a few more times.

Edit2: Once you've answered those questions, we can work thru the registry values.

Let me share the background quickly. I work at a school as Computer Applications Technology teacher. The students bring homework to school on their flashdrives, and though we have good antivirus software at school, the viruses on their home PC's will often do considerable damage to the data on their flashdrives.

One of the most common problems we have is some virus that sets the "system" attribute on all folders, effectively hiding them, and then creating shortcuts named after those folders, inviting people to double-click them, thereby effectively installing the virus locally (though our antivirus blocks it). So the problem is that those folders (with their homework) can only be revealed by going into "Folder Options" and selecting "Show hidden files and folders" and removing the option to "Hide protected operating system files". This is a big breach in security. So I usually have to change those settings, run the Attrib command in the command line to change all the folders, and then re-enable the settings. All of this takes up valuable time.

What I would like to know is, is there a way to give the attrib command once, thereby changing the attributes on all folders on a specific flashdrive? I played around with the /S /D and *.* settings, but couldn't accomplish anything. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you!

A:How do I change system attribute for all folders using command prompt?

it works just fine here

assuming we are in root of the flash drive which holds some files and subfolder with some files with....
attrib +r +s +h /S /D will add these attributes:
-read only
-system file
-is hidden
-Processes matching files and all subfolders.
-Processes folders as well

now if you wanna remove attrubutes for all files in all folders on whole flashdrive do this:
attrib -r -s -h /S /D
this command will remove attrubutes for all files folders and subfolders:
-read only
-system file
-is hidden
-Processes matching files and all subfolders.
-Processes folders as well

it works as expected

you was probably typing something wrong

I have basic knowledge of the command terminal, in that I only know how to navigate through directories. Currently I am trying to execute the following:

java ?jar MRTBatch.jar ?d input_directory ?p parameter_directory\input_parameter_file ?o parameter_file_directory

I have already navigated to the correct directory to make use of the MRTBatch.jar tool, however the problem arises with my user inputs, which are of the form "C:\Users\My Name\Rest of path". I keep getting the error:

ERROR: Could not find directory "C:\Users\My Name".

When navigating directories earlier I always had to go find the file I wanted, copy its path location, paste it into the command terminal, and then erase the "C:\" portion (so it became cd\Users\My Name\Rest of path) for it to work. So when I got this error I have tried multiple edits for it to recognize the paths. Could it be as simple as switching the direction of the slashes? I would have thought the complete path name would always be best. Is it because I'm already burrowed down so far that it cant seem to recognize any file further back?

Here are the directions I am following, pg 40 titles "Automated Batch Processing": https://lpdaac.usgs.gov/sites/default/files/public/mrt41_usermanual_032811.pdf
My goal is to mosaic a bunch of satellite imagery using the MODIS Reprojection Tool (MRT).

Thank you for the help!

A:Command Prompt Error: "Cannot find directory "C:\Users\..."

Web site URLs use the forward slash / while path statements in the OS use the backslash \.

Your problem just may be that it needs to start from the root of the drive or C:\. If it starts at the standard Command Prompt it will already be looking below/inside C:\Users\your name\.

I have 6 windows computers on 1 network. 2 run XP SP2, 2 on XP SP1, and 2 on Win2kSP2.

Yesterday (Nov 23 2005) all six had their power cut abruptly by a power failure. Afterwards, the computers ran as normal, EXCEPT that:
- When opening a command prompt window, the computer restarts
- When I choose start -> shutdown the computer also restarts immediately without me pressing the "ok" button. Ie. as the shutdown dialog appears, the computer shuts down.

The weird thing is, this happens to 4 out of 6 computers: both XPSP2's, 1 XPSP1, and the 2kSP2. I can accept that a power spike can fry a motherboard, toast another power supply, etc. But having 4 computers display the EXACT same symptoms looks like a virus/worm to me.

What to do? I can't bring up the command prompt to start diagnosing. Has anyone else been affected by a virus that causes these symptoms?

Many thanks in advance,

While using the Duplicate File delete tool in Comodo System Utilities, the Ntfs.sys drivers were accidentally deleted. Everything worked fine until I shut down. The system would not boot. F8 would not get me to the Safe Mode screen. After about a billion tries hitting F8, the Safe Mode screen appeared. I chose Windows XP Professional OS and the option Command Prompt. When I keyed Enter, I got that same error message about the repair disk which I don't have. Hit F8 again(just held it down) and got Safe Mode screen. Keyed the option Safe Mode and when entered, got that same error message. Hit F8 again and got Safe Mode screen. Keyed option 'directories'. Got same error message and a list of drivers(sys32\ntfs.sys) not on list. I was not able to get into the Safe Mode screen again no matter how many times I hit F8. The keyboard and mouse work while Safe Mode screen is on but don't work when trying to boot the machine. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Boot to the XP CD and choose the SECOND repair option, allowing XP to install on top of itself. After completion you'll need to go to Windows Update and download & install all updates (except for hardware & driver related updates, which should never be downloaded from Windows Update - only from the OEM websites). Here is a clear tutorial on how to perform a repair install: http://www.geekstogo.com/forum/topic/138-how-to-repair-windows-xp/
