Preferred Solution: finding latest versions of Win 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.)

Version 4.18
Released on 28 May 2015.
A security hole with the Windows print spooler has been plugged. An application could use the print spooler to write an arbitrary file outside the sandbox. If Sandboxie detects that the print spooler is attempting to write a file outside the sandbox at the request of a sandboxed application, it will issue "SBIE1319 Blocked spooler print to file".
NOTE: Some printer drivers write temporary files to their own work area, even when not printing to file. In these cases, you will get SBIE1319 even when printing normally (not to file). The print may still print successfully. In this situation, you can safely ignore SBIE1319, hide the error message, or open the folder as described below.

There are 3 ways to allow the print spooler to print to file:

1) If you trust the process that is printing, you can double-click the SBIE1320 (that follows SBIE1319) to allow the print spooler to write files outside the sandbox for that particular process. 2) The spooler can write files outside the sandbox according to OpenFilePath settings. This enables you to permanently open the folders a particular printer driver uses to store its work files. 3) You can manually add the setting AllowSpoolerPrintToFile=y to sandboxie.ini. This is not recommended as it leaves your sandbox open to a print spooler exploit.
Any error msgs generated when auto-deleting a sandbox will now be shown to the user.

Hello everyone.
It seems Qihoo 360 products has a lot of bugs lately and i explain what i mean:

- Real time protection seems to work good AFTER 2-3 system restart.
- I've test 360IS with sandboxie or browser in Comodo sandbox and it doesn't detect anything (only on demand scan)
- Web protection doesn't work on Mozilla or Mozilla based browsers.
- Removal speed is very slow and guess what..........during removal there is a possibility to get BSOD!!!
360 IS detected all samples but I got my first BSOD when i was trying to remove those samples found here:
King of bugs
- I've test it with sandboxie or browser in Comodo sandbox and it doesn't detect anything (only on demand scan)
- Web protection doesn't work on Mozilla or Mozilla based browsers.
- Everytime i wanted to add a program to whitelist or open the sandbox window to erase active programs Total Security was stop responding
- Memory usage was stuck on 200 - 240MB (with BD engine active only)
- Be careful of ''system optimization'' tool as it found windows system restore unnecessary and it prompt me to disable.......

Until all these fixed i will use another Vendor.

Using 64-bit Windows 8.1 Pro with an automatically updated Firefox, currently version 40.0.2.

Start up Firefox and...nothing. Check Process Explorer and see Firefox is there. Try to start up TCPview and...nothing. Decide to go back to Process Explorer and kill off Firefox - before I get that far - SHAZAAM! - TCPview starts, Firefox responds with browser window - all as it should be.

This has been the behavior for awhile now, admittedly intermittently but none-the-less a relatively new bad behavior.

And the REAL problem is hinted at by that TCPview issue up above - Firefox is freezing the whole system solid after a moment or two (Process Explorer can be run within that moment and displays dynamic results, windows can be switched to, but new processes (minimal testing) apparently cannot be started in a timely manner).

There are other complaints around the 'Net noting this type of behavior.

So...anyone know the reason for such powerful failure? (this should slow Firefox itself, not the entire system)

A:Latest couple Firefox versions slow/freeze whole system

Quick followup - this may be an Avast problem, not a Firefox problem, based off of searching for symptoms on the 'Net.

Helo People,

Sometime back I faced the problem of having start.chm - my homepage always pointing to mkMSITStore:C:\WINDOWS\start.chm::/start.html

You would find the file under C:\Windows, but each time you delete off the file, it would somehow recompiled a new file the next time.

So far nothinn would help, but I discovered today the scripts that does the "attack" doesnt seem to be in the start-up list, but rather it seems to run when you start someother application.

Is that why we are unable to find anything in the startup list?

I arrived at this conclusion when I check for the start.chm files and the IE settings the moment I started my PC. Everything was ok, but the moment I started to open other applications, I noticed that start.chm appeared in C:\Windows and the settings on my IE also changed.

My deduction could be wrong, but still, its worth a shot.

I hope someone would really come up with a solution soon.

Hello There - Ever since I upgraded to Win 10 the day it was released The HP driver download page, with the exception of the Bios ( Oct. 6, 2016 ), refuses to update their drivers. All of the drivers offered are anywhere from 15 to 19 months old, some of them were released only a couple weeks after win 10, which is ridiculas. Also the site seems to be missing several of the driver catagories period. The HPSA site is rather worthless also, since it has never updated a thing, including itself. Using the device manager is all right for doing a quick update here and there on occasion, but there are tons of related drivers and it becomes a drawn-out royal pain to go through all of them. As well as constantly going to vendor sites checking for newer updates. I have reset my PC to factory settings numerous times and still cant get any of the HP sites to cooperate at all. Please advise what I may be doing wrong or how I can find an up to date HP update page, or how I can force them to update themselves. I'll appreciate any and all suggestions - Thank You - GoldenG8 -

I just updated Spybot 1.4 to the latest updates (2005-07-30) and ran a scan. It found a Registry Change in the Windows Security Center that looks like this...

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Security Center\AntiVirusOverride!=dword:0

I did some research and found this post on another forum


Anyone else finding similar results pertaining to Window Security Center after updating Spybot 1.4?

A:Latest Spybot Updates Finding False Positives?

It's not really a false positive. It's detecting the fact that the security alerts have been turned off that would normally advise you if your firewall and anti-virus programs weren't working. This could have been done intentionally by yourself or by some malicious program. I'm sure you can tell Spybot to ignore it if you set it up this was intentionally in the Security Centre.

i have 2 profiles, one on firefox version 24 for a few reasons, download window, old school search bar, faster
another profile is latest version of firefox for newer viewing compatibility, which I sometimes use chrome too if both firefox doesn't work.

issue is, on firefox 24, its faster compared to latest versions of firefox (even on clean profile) and to reproduce issue is rather simple. don't maximize window and drag firefox window around the screen and watch CPU usage spikes up.

for firefox 24 the usage doesnt go up at all but on latest versions of firefox (pretty much anything after ffox 26) if drag the window around for even 5sec CPU usage will spike like crazy, like its trying to render graphic or something with CPU. for both versions I have hardware acceleration disabled already so I don't think its that.

hi there

i have a question related to "Previous versions of files" which i have to say is pretty handy...

i wanted to know, if i enabled it on a partition where i have lets say "DATA", which in effect has movies, photos and documents (xls, jpegs, mkvs, movs, avis, etc etc), would that back up the ENTIRE partition? for instance if i have a movie of 2gb, will that be backed up as well?

i currently have it enabled on C: which is the windows/programs partition only..

as far as i can tell you cannot choose which files are going to be backed up or maybe i am missing a setting somewhere?


A:Previous versions of files, does it backup ALL files?

Yes. It works well on a data partition. If there are no system data on the partition select the only restore previous versions option.

It doesn't actually back therm up. It keeps them in shadow storage so it is not a true backup. When your allocated shadow storage is used up it will delete the oldest version. As you can see I have 1% of my disk allocated. That gives me a couple of months of versions. You will need to experiment with what works for you

I have the 2002 Microsoft Office Professional version and put it on my newer laptop which had a trial version of Office 2003 (no discs given for backup). After the updates I did last week I could no longer open the .MDI files from 2003. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling via system restore selection of the date the program was removed. Then I ran into the missing file SKU112.CAB issue and could not initiate 2003 again. I gave up when nothing resolved that for me, uninstalled 2003 and still cannot open my .MDI files because Document Imager only does .TIFF now.
The solution posted here on changing the program within control panel, add/remove programs menu was for a 2007 version but I gave it a try anyway and of course it did not work for me.
I saved FAFSA, Taxes and other important items to be printed out via these .MDI file extensions by clicking print and being given the Document Imager as a "printer" selection. Can you please tell me how to force MDI to recognize a file extension .MDI ?

Thank You.

Hi guys. I recently overwrote an important notepad file, and would like to revert to the previous version before I overwrote it. I've read that there's such ways to do it, such as system restore, but I have never done a backup of my system before. Is there any other options that I could take?

A:Restoring previous versions of files

Windows automatically creates restore points...if it is not turned off

Restore PC to an Earlier Date & Time

Go Start>>All Programs>>Accessories>>System Tools>>System Restore
Click in the radio button Restore My Computer to An Earlier Time
Click Next
Pick a Date in Dark Blue only (pick a date to before you installed All-In-One)
Click Next
Then Next again.
This should restore the PC to that time & date

It will update and restart

My computer experienced a power glitch leaving some files corrupted. Multiple system restores failed, some of them pointing to an unnamed, damaged Maximizer file. A CHKDSK was run and it fixed what it could but the residual effects left some important features of Maximizer 11 Entrepreneur, a contact manager, inoperable. This could be caused by a damaged executable or a data file used by Maximizer. The program is no longer supported.

I can restore the Maximizer folder in C:\Program Files (x86)\Maximizer\ going back to many dates before my disk problem using Previous Versions but I'm not sure this will lead to a fix. Will the files prior to the disk problem be OK? The files in previous folders have the same "Date modified" according to Explorer. Is there a utility that can check for file differences?

Has anyone tried to repair programs using such a technique. If so, I would appreciate learning from your experience.

Hi all,

There have been a couple threads on this topic on the forums but they have no solutions.

Whenever I reboot, all of my file changes are reverted. Files I deleted are back, files I added are gone, files I modified are reverted to their previous state, programs I installed are gone, programs I uninstalled are back, special reboot tools like checkdisk and mdsched don't take effect on reboot. File changes I make to my slave HDD are not reverted on reboot.

This just started happening the other day.

I ran MalwareBytes, which found some minor issues related to a toolbar, but of course rebooting brings it back. I ran "sfc /scannow." No errors found.

I used a Win7 recovery disk, which found no problems.

Here is my Disk Management screenshot: http://www.develteam.com/userdata/Ga...management.png

One interesting thing, however, that might be part of the issue. When I boot up and open chrome, it opens to my last visited pages, which are for a program called HD Tune, implying to me that the problem started after installing and running this program. All I did with it was a scan, which did find bad bits. Here's a screenshot of that: http://www.develteam.com/userdata/Ga..._hdtunepro.png

Not sure if HD Tune Pro did something to cause this, but I felt it was worth mentioning.

A:On reboot, all files revert to previous versions

It sounds almost like you are running this:

I would look and see if it is on your system.

Barring that I would open the Services applet

then scroll down to Shadow copy service.
Stop it if running, then set to disabled.

Make an obvious change to something and reboot.

Not really sure if this is a network problem, but I couldn't get help in other rooms. I'm on a Win7Ultimate computer at work, primarily accessing storage over a network...

A few days ago I started having an issue where I would make changes to a file (always powerpoint files so far), save the file, and then the next day the changes would be gone. The 'date modified' metadata would also suggest that no changes had been made since an earlier date/time. Just lately I've been having issues with an excel plugin (Capital IQ) which isn't able to download information correctly (only on my computer, no one else's.

There are no crashes, reboots, error messages or anything ... it just looked like I hadn't been in the file or made any changes since an earlier date/time. I had the 'previous versions / windows backup' feature turned off, but I have since turned it on - the problem has occurred in both cases. I have also tried emailing the files to myself (through outlook) and saving them to my desktop ... in both cases the powerpoint files still randomly revert to earlier versions ... I believe in the case of email that the storage server isn't actually duplicating the file, but is simply pointing to the same file from both the email and the file location in windows explorer.

This is incredibly frustrating and is killing me at work - I'm going to try and get a clean install of my system, but any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

In our environment, we are 99% Windows 7, 0.9% Windows 8.1, and 0.1% Windows 10 (we are just beginning to test it).  I'm aware that Microsoft introduced "schema v.2" for the Internet Explorer 11 Enterprise Mode Site List XML file (hereafter:
"EMSL file") for Windows 10 so that you can also control whether or not a URL opens in Edge or IE11.
In our environment, how I attempted to handle this was by creating two different EMSL files: one is schema v.1 for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 clients and the other is schema v.2 for Windows 10 clients.  Then, I created two WMI filters: "Windows
10" and "Not Windows 10".  I then created two different GPOs.  One of them used the "Not Windows 10" WMI filter and pointed clients to the schema v.1 EMSL file and the other used the "Windows 10" WMI filter and
pointed clients to the schema v.2 EMSL file.
Well, I was just working on an issue, and I noticed in doing a GPResult that the aforementioned GPO for Windows 7 and 8.1 clients was being applied to my Windows 10 computer, not the correct Windows 10 one.  When I looked, it appeared that WMI filtering
was not being taken into account.  I don't use WMI filtering very much, so this is the first I'm learning that WMI filters only apply to computer policies and not user policies.
Given the requirements (different EMSL setting for users on different operating systems), how can I solve this issue in grou... Read more

For the third time in a week, Windows 7 has replaced some of my personal data files with earlier versions, without my consent, following a restart.
I'm talking about my outlook Data file (outlook.pst), my Quicken data files and a few others. Files are located in different places, but mostly in my Documents folder.

There are no errors, no crashes and no warning whatsoever.
I just restart the PC and suddenly my data files are overwritten with sometimes days old versions. The first time it happened I assumed that maybe I hadn't properly saved my document(s), but then I noticed it actually WAS replacing current files with earlier versions. I would enter a few days worth of transactions into Quicken, save and even backup the files, only to have it revert back to a file that was saved two days ago after restarting the PC, causing me to have to re-enter all those transactions.
Same thing with Outlook - I could add/change/remove appointments in my calendar, only to discover that it went back to an earlier time after the next restart, all changes made would be lost.
Just a simple reboot is all it takes - the last time I had to reboot to update a driver.
This is completely unexpected & unacceptable behavior. What would cause Windows 7 to do this?

A:Data files revert to previous versions after restart

Win 7, has a function that allows you to restore to a previous date, in the event that you

lose or want to change your current copy. The previous copy comes from back up and

restore or system restore, whichever is applicable. Some how you are returning to those

earlier documents, without giving permission. May I suggest, until we figure out the

cause of the problem, you turn off the system restore function and the back up and

restore function. Although I think that these features are very good and a safeguard

against problems, in your case you might want to disable them, until a remedy can be

found for your problem.

I frequently bring home files from work on a thumb drive to update my home PC.  On WinXP and Vista I could simply drag and drop those folders and files into the same directory on my home PC and select to replace the old version.  That option does not appear consistently in Win 7.  Typically it creates a copy of the file and/or the entire folder, eg, Folder - Copy, or File - Copy.  I now have an incredible mess of older and newer versions of folders and files with - Copy appended to their names.  How do I turn this off such that either the file is always overwritten, or I am prompted to Replace the folders and files?

A:Overwrite or Replace folders and files, instead of creating - Copy versions

Hi getntune

If I go to C:\music I can see any number of music files located there. But when using another program and their option to "browse", when I go to the same folder I see none of the music files. Kinda like a magic act!

Could anyone point me in the right directions?

Thanks. Jim

If you click "Start", "Computer", there is a "Search" window in the right corner. You can put the file name (Blue.mp3) or if you don't know the file name, put *.mp3

It will bring them up.

Is there any reason when I do a search for files on my PC, as in START/FIND/FILES or FOLDERS that it doesn't find the files that I have saved within Outlook Express?

For instance, I know SOMEWHERE in my OE I have an email with an attached jpg. in it named PhillyJimmy in it.... but when I do a search of my hard drive (C) it will not find the file. Shouldn't find files or folders find that file name if it's exact?




A:Finding files within OE...???

Hey BigDave

Yes, there is. OE is a database program - your emails are not files, they are information stored within the index files (.DBX). The only way to use search to find something there is to specify what text you are looking for in search. And for files, you would enter *.dbx.

However, if you know it is in a folder in OE, you can use the "search" included in OE.
Click Edit->Find Message In This Folder. If it stops at a possible email and it is not the one, pressing F3 will make it continue the search until it has gone through a folder.

I posted about missing files after malware cleanup seperately because i don't want to combine the two. I have a question about how to get rid of files i see in my Secunia psi program but never see them listed in windows uninstaller, Revo uninstaller or even Iobit uninstaller .

Thank you very much, the help is truly appreciated.

A:finding files

Hello -Since you have no record of Malware Cleanup at this forum, could you please tell or link us to that particular item -I think that one minor problem may be related to the IObit programs installed on your system.It is unfortunate that this program / company has a habit of confusing some of your files, and makes them hard to find.The first / best option is to remove IObit from your computer. Next uninstall Secunia PSI Version 3 if that is what you use.Then you can install Secunia PSI Version 2, and not use the latest Version 3, that is a bit more complicated.You may find the earlier version of Secunia is much easier to manage, and easier to handle for many people (me included).Thank You - EDITED to add Secunia 2 Link -

this is a bit of an embarrassing question but please bear in mind that I am a novice at this. I understand about FTP but how do you actually find FTP files in the first place? Is there a search engine in the same way as for normal website pages? Or do you just look for the FTP option when you are downloading files?

Thanks for your help.


A:finding FTP files

FTP is File Transfer Protocol. As such, it is a definition for a mechanism to transfer files over a network.

So, there aren't any "FTP Files" since you could theoretically FTP any file.

I believe you're referring to "FTP Sites". Usually, FTP sites are maintained by businesses or individuals who would like to allow people to transfer files to or from them quickly - using FTP. Usually these sites are technical or scholarly in nature - like a computer company having update files on it's FTP site. There will usually be a link on a companies home page. Or a user might have an FTP server with MPEG or MP3 files on it available for download.

As stated, you usually have to be told of the existence of an FTP site or server. You could just "gues" however, this is the hard way.

FTP is "quicker" than using HTTP although file transfer is possible with both.

Modern browsers are capable of changing from HTTP to FTP pretty seamlessly to the user.

Older users (like me ;) or "power users") sometimes prefer the command line FTP which can give a little more control over the intracacies of the protocol. Some programmers have built this into GUI FTP programs such as WS-FTP.

Hope this helps.

I just loaded XP on a fresh harddrive. The old hard drive wouldn't boot but was hooked up as drive F as a slave. While trying to move a folder from old drive to new it disappeared. I never got a warning or message asking if I wanted to delete the folder but it's gone. Any way to recover the folder ?



A:Finding lost files

did you check your recycle bin?....or run a search for the folder to see if its hiding somewhere?

if not, then there are utilities out there to recover data but they are somewhat expensive. I would consider it gone.

Everytime I start my computer I get a window in the bottom left corner that says these files cannot be found and windows searches for them.

I just keep clicking Cancel then I get some other error message so I close that then I get an illegal operation right away. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

So anyone know what these files are for or if I can safely delete them from the computer? All files are in the C:\WINDOWS\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\StartUp folder.

All files end in the .exe extension too.

This seems like the sort of thing which be so simple...

I have connected a friend's iPhone to my PC, so that I can copy some photos taken between particular dates (03-Feb-19 to 20-Feb-19). But there are many photos there, taken on many dates and spread across a large number of sub-folders of the DCIM folder. Plus the file creation dates are not always easy to organise. Putting that column in date order in Windows Explorer doesn't always put the dates in date order...

Is there a file finder which can find those files reliably?
