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.)

I have a small .exe file that converts .obj files to .raw format and substitutes the header and footer for series of numbers I add at the end.
The exe file is named ConvertRAW.exe
I also have a batch file that runs ConvertRAW.exe and adds the parameters

This all works fine; but, I have to change the file name every time for each obj file.
Here is the command that works one file at a time:

ConvertRAW.exe C:\Users\Mike\Desktop\OBJ_FILES\file.obj 3000 3000 1000 1000 100 0 0 0 0 100 0 0 0 0 100 0 0 0 0 100

I really need to be able to put many obj files in a folder and change them all with one batch file.

I have been trying with the FOR command several days and just can't get it.
Thanks in advance for any help.

A:Batch File Help Please! [moved to Programming]

Hi -

See if this works...

ConvertRAW.exe should be on Desktop already

Paste this into Notepad; save as ConvertRAW1.bat - save to Desktop -


set objdir=%userprofile%\desktop\obj_files

dir %objdir%\*.obj /a /b > %objdir%\objfiles

for /f "tokens=* delims= " %%x in (%objdir%\objfiles) do (
set objfile=%objdir%\%%x
call "%userprofile%\desktop\ConvertRAW2.bat" %objfile%


Paste this into Notepad; save as ConvertRAW2.bat - save to Desktop -


%userprofile%\desktop\ConvertRAW.exe %objfile% 3000 3000 1000 1000 100 0 0 0 0 100 0 0 0 0 100 0 0 0 0 100

I placed a PAUSE statement in the 1st batch file so you can see errors (if any!).

Regards. . .

I am having a problem getting into my windows program. The problem is that the computer says that there are several files missing from the SYSTEM INI. So, okay. I attempt to use DOS to undelete these missing files by going into the windows directory and giving the undelete command. I believe everything would be fine except the computer tells me that all files are currently in "lock /." I reboot the computer and attempt to give the unlock command but repeatedly am faced with the message, "lock unsuccessful." My question is...WHAT DO I DO?!?

Firefox has been freezing up on me, and when I close it down, I get a bluescreen error. It also happens a lot of the time when I close Firefox down normally. This was happening before I updated to the latest version of FF. I am running Windows XP, and have recently started using ZoneAlarm and Avast on my system.

I don't know if my problem is Firefox or WordPress but I thought I'd try here first.
I use WordPress to publish articles and usually copy and paste from the finished article in the Articles forum to WordPress but since I reinstalled Win 7 this no longer works as paste is no longer an option when I right click in WordPress, or at least in the particular part that I need it to. I can, however, do it in Internet Explorer, but images aren't copied over, which they used to be. I've tried all the usual things like clearing the cache, but nothing has worked. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

A:Is this Win 7 or Firefox at fault? Moved from Mozilla/Firefox browsers

I am using Win-7 too but I haven't used IE. So my suggestion is to, try another browser for the same purpose and then see the effects (I feel firefox is well suited for the purpose). If you are getting same problems then, you are missing with some features of Win-7 otherwise, it is the website issue.

Dear BleepingComputer folk,
My laptop is running Firefox 40.0.3 under Windows 8.1 (64-bit).
The Problem
Two nights ago my browser (then Firefox 40.0.2) started opening some webpages extremely slowly, simply refusing to open others and producing a "This document has been moved here" message for others (see below screenshot - the link would appear to go to whatever I searched for, but I never clicked it). 
These various problems were affecting familiar websites that I have bookmarked and regularly open, such as Facebook.  This seemed to be in some way related to the cache, as it was not affecting new URLs that I had not visited previously during that browsing session. 
SCREENSHOT #1 - result of attempt to visit https://mail.riseup.net via browser bookmark:


In addition, when using Google Toolbar (but not https://www.google.co.uk/ , which appeared fully functional) to search for anything I would receive the same: "This document has been moved here", but with an additional "302 Moved" message. 
SCREENSHOT #2 - result of attempt to search for http://www.facebook.com/ via Google Toolbar:


Attempting to access attachments in gmail also produced a similar message (I don't have a screenshot of this, but I believe the message there again differed slightly, saying that the document was "temporarily" moved).  This is what I encoun... Read more

I have a Dell Optiplex running Windows XP Pro SP3, running Symantec Endpoint Protection, and I have the most up-to-date windows updates, and IE and Firefox browsers.

The browsers are my problem. They both will work for a little bit and then crash. Not just one crash but 4-10 times in the span of a few minutes, on all types of sites (facebook, google searches, yahoo mail, ebay, etc). I?m pretty much on my last nerve and very frustrated with this problem. It has been going on for about a week now.

? Uninstalled and reinstalled both
? Updated Java (it is enabled in both)

Don't know if anyone can help, but hope someone can offer suggestion.

I have a website and the index page has a 'drop-down' menu (for various pages on the site) where visitors can click and go to other pages on the site.

When I view the INDEX page in IE6, the 'drop-down' menu appears in the center of the page, where we want it to appear.

However, when we view the INDEX page in Firefox, the 'drop-down' menu appears on the left side of the page.

Would anyone know what we might have to do (correct) to make the 'drop-down' menu on the INDEX page appear in the center of page when viewed on Firefox?

Here is the beginning part of the HTML for the 'drop-down' menu:

<SCRIPT language=JavaScript>
function formHandler(){
var URL = document.form.mysites.options
parent.location.href = URL;
<P align=center>
<FORM name=form><SELECT onchange=formHandler() size=1 name=mysites> <OPTION value="" selected>My Pages 2-28
<OPTION value=http://www.XXXXX.com/XXXXX/Page2.html>Page 2
<OPTION value=http://www.XXXXX.com/XXXXX/Page3.html>Page 3

A:Viewing in Firefox vs IE6 [moved to Web Design]

We need to see the site to work out problems such as these.

At a glance of the snippet of code you have provided, I would guess its to do with firefox's defualt values compared to IE. Using <p> tags for a layout element such as a menu isn't a great idea.

If you show us the site I can do some tests and try to find the problem.

In response to Dan's (dtae) posting entitled "sponsored links" on left in Firefox" I too have just got this infuriating problem.
The sponsored links on the left are not solely Google related nor it would seem solely Firefox related!!!
In Firefox the left links are present in a Google or Yahoo search.
They are not present when using IE or Safari.
However, they are also NOT present in Firefox when using the Google related search 'Locate Me'.
I have also run 'CustomizeGoogle' in Firefox and this does not touch these particular links.
I have run various malware scans and nothing has been thrown up. Nor has my constantly running PCGuard found anything!
I will keep an eye on Dan's posting and hope the above info will help.

I see this on my XP laptop from time to time. The scrollbars jiggle around and won't stay still, making it annoying to try to read a page that is going up and down. It eventually settles down after awhile.

Is this definitely a symptom of infection? I scan the hell out of this thing. I have McAfee anti-virus and anti-spyware on it fully updated and scanning 3 times a week, and also scan using BitDefender and TrendMicro online scans now and again (each once within past 2 wks). And further, I also scan from time to time using updated Ad-Aware, Spybot, SuperAntiSpyware, SpywareDoctor.

Is the occassional jigglyness normal? Does it happen on clean machines? If so, I won't worry. For the moment, I worry a bit.

Any info very appreciated.

A:IE7 freezes on loading yahoo.com, but not firefox [Moved from IE]

Well I went into safe mode and loaded the site up just fine, then in IE7-it just finally loaded up.(that was a couple days ago).
But now sometimes I'll find a few random sites where it freezes up in IE7 and when I go into safe mode and load it up, it seems to fix it in Normal mode.

PC World.com, also gave me that. And a link inside PC world, did the same thing. Then I went into Safe mode again, then normal mode again and that loaded, from being froze too.

Thing is I keep finding sites where it will freeze on me, but I've been using my parents IE7 as well on those same site and their browser never froze once, and this computer has been infected before once (their computer), but my computer is CLEAN. I even have uniblue registry booster to scan my computer as well (note that I put this on after having these IE7 problems).

I have also reformatted my hard drive, just 12 hours after my first post, but this problem came back. I'm really clueless as to what's going on, or if I happen to have a very stealthy virus (have 2 anti-viruses, 1 anti-spyware program running on my computer all the time). Help Me!

I set up Firefox Sync Bookmarks on my PC where and how do I get my Bookmarks which are being synced and saved ?

A:Firefox Sync Bookmarks? (Moved from Windows 10 forum)

The purpose of the Firefox sync feature is to allow another device (PC - Phone - etc) that has Firefox installed the ability to sync the bookmarks, history etc to itself. For example. I have a Desktop PC, A laptop PC and a Android Smart Phone. Each of these devices have FireFox installed. Each of the devices are sync'd together. So if I save a bookmark on my PC, I can then use Firefox on my Smart phone and the bookmark will appear there and can be used by FireFox.

Its not really a backup. It just makes what ever your syncing available on all devices that use FireFox.

I have been having some issues for the last couple of days with my computer.  I first experienced trouble with Firefox while watch a simple Twitch Stream.  For no reason (as the computer was completely idle save the stream) I received a message saying Shockwave Player (or some script on the page) stopped responding.  The popup gave me the option to wait for the script to respond, or to kill it.  I attempted to kill it, by opening up Task Manager.  This took maybe 3 minutes to open up, while in the process hung my entire system the whole time, and then led to Firefox itself to completely lock up.  As well, when attempting to open up Task Manager in the first place, if at first the window did not show up I would attempt to open it again.  The first time by using the Ctrl, Shift, Escape combination, and when that was unsuccessful (as it normally pops up instantly), I would thusly right click the taskbar to open it that way.  By doing this method it would take minutes for the popup from the taskbar itself to showup.  After finally getting Task Manager open, I would see two different Task Manager processes.  One at roughly 4k kilobytes of memory, while the other ~100.  As someone with a tiny bit of OCD I would close the smaller kilobyte one by right clicking it to kill the process from the popup menu.  Right clicking the process would give me no window, nor would hitting kill process from the tab on the Task...

Hi all,

I am very new to Windows programming, but I have a project I want to dive into.

I want to develop a program that can import data from a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet and store it in an encrypted database. After the initial data load is completed, I want specific users of the program to have modify rights to delete, add and change data in the database.

The other users will have read-only access to generate reports on the data that is already in the database. This application will need to be secure, secure, secure (meaning the source data cannot be altered without the proper access, and the people who have read only rights cannot see the code used to generate the custom reports).

I have already completed the exact application I want, however it is in Microsoft Excel and anyone that is a step above a novice can download programs to hack my password protections, and then see all of my code.

So being new, but understanding that I have some experience in VBA, with the option to learn any Windows programming language, which is the best choice to do what I want to accomplish?

Thanks all for your advice!

A:new to programming

I would say visual basic, based purely on the fact you are already fluent in VBA (they are very alike).

If I were going to start learning how to create different programs, how would I start? Should I start by reading, downloading a program, or what? I tend to suck at learning through reading, so I'd prefer to go through a program teaching me how to program with different "languages"(I guess that'd be what you call them).



Look for something like ITT Tech, DeVry or a community college course
on programming.

I'm going to go back to programming, but the last compiler I used was Borland C++ version 3. I have version 6 in my shopping basket at Amazon, but was wondering if I should look at VB .Net.

The reason I'm curious, is that C++ doesn't seem to be mentioned anymore, and it may be a dying code. The version I can get for the same price is Visual Basic .NET Standard 2003 from Microsoft.

As they're retailed at ~70, I don't want to get C++ and start learning again, and compiling a few programs, etc, to find out its no good. I know that .Net is for the web, whereas C++ is Windows based. But what are the other differences?

Look forward to any response, as I'd like to try and get out of my mundane job
