Upgraded from Vista to Windows 7. Strictly an internet access issue. This is a very randomly generated message, that may pop up at any time. Seems to be a function of Panda's Anti-phishing security and will occur in Opera, Firefox, and Chrome, never use IE so don't know about it. Sometimes, I can go to the previous window (or 2) and everything is fine, advancing back to the original problem window and it will open normally. Sometimes opening another browser will fix the problem. At the bottom of the error message page is a Yahoo search bar. I never use Yahoo, especially since I started getting these messages. I wonder if the problem is related to Yahoo.

http://www.pandadomainadvisor.com/search.php (this is the url displayed when I get the error message). Is there a Panda setting that I can disable or enable to prevent this from happening. The websites are viable and my internet connection is live when I get these messages. I tend to keep several windows open at once and it may infect 1 or 2 or all.

Thanks.

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.)

Hello all,

I'm working an issue for a client that's very odd.

At first they were unable to receive mail in Windows Live Mail (2011). It was giving a generic "server time out" error which indicated to me a corrupt or stuck message.

For me step 1 is always un-install norton (which I did)

Afterward I accessed their account via web-mail and cleared out all the new messages; the error persisted.

So, I rebuilt the account. During the process of re-downloading all 17,600 messages (since they had marked to leave all on the server) I discovered and cleared 2 corrupted messages (1 at the top of the box and one at the bottom in the very old mail).

So, all mail was received and they were sending and receiving with no trouble.

I installed AVG and returned their computer.

Two days later they call very upset that system performance had come to a crawl since I worked on thier machine.

Turns out the system is performing just fine; its only the email that is slowed down everything else seems fine.

So the new problem:

Windows Live Mail freezes for exactly 49 seconds after you hit reply the first time you hit reply in that session. Every subsequent time it opens immediately with no lag.

In investigating this issue I found perhaps the underlying cause. When I go into the options and click on the "Spelling" tab it complexly locks up WLM and I have to end process on it to get out of it.

Here's what I've done to try and repair it:

I'm running a Dell Dimension 5150 that recently updated the graphics card from the stock card to an NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GT and NAV 2009, if that helps any. The adapter I'm having an issue with is a Linksys 2.4 GHz adapter (802.11g).

There are two computers running on my newtork; the above-mentioned machine and a new Mac running Leopard. The PROBLEM (at last): the Mac runs on the same network without so much as a hiccup, and my PC is stuck between "Acquiring Network Address" and being unable to connect with the access point entirely, starting the cycle all over again.

Hi, I've looked all over the internet in attempt to find a solution to a problem that's just affected my computer, and I haven't been able to find anything that relates specifically to the problem I'm encountering.

This hit my computer without warning, I switched it on this morning and it worked as normal, all of a sudden things started to freeze up. I restarted the computer, and now a lot of programs are refusing to open - Microsoft Office, among others, states "Error: There Are No More Files", whilst other programs such as Google Chrome and Internet Explorer state "Attempt to Access From Invalid Address", even when I am running them from their root folders.

I have scanned my system with Avast Antivirus, which didn't state that there were any viruses, so I am stuck as to what exactly the problem is.

I'd really appreciate some help in figuring out what has happened, thankyou so much for your time in reading this!

So I have this weird thing happening in my relatively fresh install of Windows 10.
Whenever I search for "Check for Updates" or "Windows Update settings" on the search box of the start menu, I get the results that I want but if I press enter or try to click on those results nothing happens.. As far as I know I can click all others search results but those, and maybe others related to windows update.

I can still get updates by going to Settings>Update & Security though.

In my other computers this works fine, and as far as I can tell all the updates are done.
From what I've searched around other people seemed to have a similar issue where they couldn't acess the settings at all which isn't my case. Still I tried the sfc/ scannow that a lot of users seemed to recommend but no results.

This is a resurection of an old unresolved Vista Post, and it also happens in Windows 7.
====================================
Original subject - Start Menu - program search issue
I use Windows Mail for my daily email tasks, and would like to be able to
open the program by using the vista search bar built into the start menu. The
problem is, when i search for "mai" it brings up Windows Mail, and I can hit
enter and load the program. However, when I search for "mail", it returns:
"No items match your search." I have it set to index both the start menu and
my programs directory, and have even tried to rebuild the index.

It seems kind of strange that Vista would recognize that when I type "mai" I
want my mail programs, but when I actually type "mail", it gets confused...

Hello sattyaji, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It may still be showing if the system image was created as part of a Windows backup. Using the tutorial below to reset Windows Backup should clear it for you, but you will need to set up your backup again afterwards.

Hi,

I have been having this problem with my desktop computer for some time, and have tried so many things with no real solution.

Basically, the internet works SOMETIMES, and then suddenly, for seemingly no reason, it will lose connection, fail to acquire the network address, and then end up saying "Limited or No Connectivity".

Sometimes when I start the computer up, this will happen from the beginning. Sometimes when I do a system restore to a few days previously it will sort the problem, but then the problem returns after a period of time.
(My desktop computer worked fine for some time, and it has only been in the past few weeks that it has had this problem.)
So, problem:
Fails to acquire network address on one computer (in two seperate XP partitions), says "Limited or No Connectivity".
Connection works fine on laptop.
Problems also on Xbox Live (disconnecting). I am guessing same problem as desktop, but of course with less options to experiment and analyse.

Here is my network's set-up:

Desktop Computer (running two different XP's in seperate partitions, BOTH of which have the same problem)
XP-1 (SP2): Many programs installed, incl. AVG 8.0, Sygate Firewall, and Firefox.

2. Anyway, here is the major problem. Whatever I type, e.g "www.yahoo.com", "www.google.com", it just return "The address is not valid" in the content area and the address field shows "http:///"

3. I try to search some help on the net and it told me to use the comment:

ipconfig /flushdns

which may help. However, I got the error "The requested operation requires elevation." to run the comment. In fact, I have the administrator privilege.

4. On the other hand, my msn messenger works. i.e. I can use messenger normally. which means my network configuration is fine.

I have searched all over the web and cannot seem to find a solution to the problem I recently started having with my computer. (Although I have found plenty of people claiming to have the same problem.) This is on a computer running XP Pro SP3 with an AMD Anthlon II X2 CPU processor: Normally, when I download something - file, pic, etc. - I can left click on the download dropdown box (revealing the downloaded items list), right click on an item and choose "Open containing folder" and the folder I download the item to would open. (I choose where downloads go, not the My Docs Download folder.) Now, nothing happens when I choose "Open containing folder". At first I thought it was a Firefox problem since that is the browser I usually use so I did a ?refresh? but that did not correct the problem. Then I realized it was also happening with Chrome, so that ruled out a browser setting causing the problem. (I have IE but never use it.) If what I have downloaded uses a program, double clicking on the file in the dropbox still opens the correct program normally.

More investigating revealed that right clicking on a program icon on my desktop and choosing "Find target" was also not working ? nothing happens. (Normally the program folder would open with the .exe file highlighted.) I have to think both problems are caused by the same malfunction.

It’s perfectly safe to use ‘Move’ to move the Documents folder to a different location. Navigate to the folder, then right-click it > Properties

Friends:

I am having problems with XP Home Networking. My situation is like this: I have two PCs running fully updated XP Pro and a Belkin wireless router connected to a Motorola Surfboard cable modem.

I am running Windows XP SP3, fully updated, on an Acer lap top PC.

I have several folders full of .mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. To do this I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

The two new columns appear, but the format of the "Duration" column appears to be "hours:minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03" for most .mp3's, when what I want to see is 'hours:minutes:seconds", e.g. "00:03:45".

This also happens for video files (.avi files), e.g. all my episodes of "Heroes" (sad, I know) have a duration of "00:42" instead of "00:42:xx".


Here are two pictures showing the problem with the .mp3's. The first is of Explorer showing the Duration as "Hours:Minutes":




The second picture is of the properties window of the first .mp3 in the list above:




I copied some .mp3 files to another (old) PC on my home network, and it displayed the duration field correctly:




Also, the properties window correctly shows the duration also:





I'm not the only person to have this problem. I received a private message from a member of another forum where I posted about this problem several weeks ago. That person also has the same problem with the duration field.

The tech guys on that forum were unable to find the source... Read more

Hi!

Yeah so i've been searching some hours now for how to make my desktop look like this:
I don't care about the taskbar style, all i want is my desktop to look like that when i minimize everything, the clock and all! I think it's a really sexy look! I found the picture in an old thread on a forum and the user doesnt go there anymore. Im hoping someone here might have a clue!
I don't have any prior experience with this sorta stuff so im really clueless!

Thanks in advance!!

A:Trying to find this "theme" or "skin" or whatever to call it!

hi Lekandesanden, and welcome to sevenforums,

the clock and system information on the desktop looks like rainmeter.

i don't know which specific skin it is though...

looks like the screenshot originally came from here.

maybe you could try joining that forum and asking the OP - even though the post was nearly 2 years ago...

Well, I can't locate just "find" in Google Docs....."find and replace," no problem. But I use "find" all the time because I'll be working in multiple docs/versions/etc, and I will often need to find a certain section or part or whatever. In Word this of course is easy. Googling this just finds references to find and replace. Help?

I have had this problem numerous times in the past where the installation proceeds then ends with the messages:

During the installation of the device.
The system cannot find the file specified
and it goes into a detection loop

HERE is the solution:

Windows 2000/XP has a bug that it cannot properly detect new hardware by *.inf files, if the RunOnce registry key is missing for the following location:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion

This key is often used by installers to execute post-reboot programs, but sometimes they accidentally delete this key.

IMPORTANT: This article contains information about modifying the registry. Make sure that you understand how to backup and restore the registry, in case a problem occurs. Please read the linked Microsoft Knowledge Base article prior to editing the registry.
Go to Start Run and enter "regedit."

Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion

With CurrentVersion Highlighted, go to the Edit menu and select New Key

Name the key RunOnce, leaving everything else about the key alone.

The RunOnce key should now exist underneath the CurrentVersion key.
Once the key exists, Windows 2000/XP stops redetecting the Hardware

Hello,

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\.

Recently purchased new laptop with XP-Pro and had old PC upgraded a few months later (XP-Home on it). Trouble on both:

XP-Pro:
- can't open links in emails Outlook Express
- can't open links on SOME webpages​--Temporary solution: right click, copy & paste shortcut into Address Bar

XP-Home:
- can open most links, but cannot use "Go" or enter after address on Address Bar​
Before someone thinks I'm crazy or that both computers have a virus, I have run Spybot, Ada-ware, AVG and McAfee - nothing found. However, I did find articles on Windows support that indicate similar problems, but haven't been able to work the solution. See articles at:
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;281679
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;180176​
Perhaps I missed registering one of the .dll files on the laptop when I tried to fix it using the above microsoft kb solutions. Does anyone know if there is a simple fix for those who aren't experts at editing the registry or who would prefer not to spend several hours doing so on two computers?

Seems unlikely that two different versions of XP on two different computers in my home would just happen to be corrupted. Yet, I didn't find a vast number of questions about this in these forums as I would expect on a commonly known issue either. Did I look in the wrong forums.

Thanks,

My office just upgraded, and I can no longer use Windows XP. On this system, I was able to add a separate taskbar to facilitate quick access to commonly-browsed folder locations on our vast network, and another one expedited the launching of useful programs and lists. Each task on each taskbar was represented with a big custom icon to save eye strain. I had them installed in opposite vertical margins, and they were set on auto-hide to keep them out of the way when not being used. Just move your mouse pointer to the left or right margin, and BAM! Sorry for the cliche, but I really got used to the convenience of what I had set up, and I just don't think I can be as efficient without anything comparable.

Now there appears to be nothing comparable in the Windows 7 GUI, and it's making me sick with rage! I see only the option to put a "toolbar" on an existing "taskbar", and no option to create any additional taskbars! This cramps up your one-and-only taskbar, plus the tiny toolbar access buttons require way too much precision for anything that's supposed to be quick. When you've figured out how to bring up that ridiculous button, the list that it yields is small enough to cause painful eyestrain - nothing efficient, much less cool about this at all! I have seen customization options in other OS GUIs that may have resolved some of these issues, but I see none such in W7.

Hi,

When our website users click on an html attachment embedded on a web-page in IE9, the download manager will not display the "Open" option. It will only display "Save" and "Cancel" which our users don't like, having to save the
html document in a folder to open it. Whereas, when downloading attachments like pdf, word etc. all three options are displayed. 

Is there any setting to tweak , which will display all the 3 options for HTML attachments as well?

A:IE9 download manager will not display "Open" option (only "Save" and "Cancel" is displayed) for downloading HTML documents.

Hi,
As you know, the Open-Save-Cancel dialog box helps you prevent your computer from affecting by virus while downloading. 
So I suggest you test to reset all zones to a lower level temporarily and then please attempt to download this html attachment again.

However, since you can normally download the other documents, I suspect there is some restriction in the website which you are trying to view. I recommend you to contact the administrator of that website if possible.
could you please send me the link of the website from where you are trying to download the html attachment?
Thanks!
