Preferred Solution: The service cannot accept......

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.)

Norton AV is the most "Pain in the B" ...So many bugs and problems ...

No wonder your going Nut.....Use Norton Uninstall tool to remove it ...
Use Avast instead ....IMO.

I cannot do a system restore as it says there are no restore points except the one I manually did upon discovering this problem a few days ago. I have a Gateway M1629 with Vista. I have read previous posts regarding this problem and have downloaded and ran Malwarebytes and OTL. My question is: do I put the fixes that are suggested for those individuals or is it specific to each problem? I have the logs saved and will post below.

A:the service cannot accept control messages at this time

Which specific applications stops?

There is a temporary mismatch between the requested control and the state of the service to be controlled. The service may be in a state of start-pending, stop-pending, or stopped.

If you can determine which service it is that is causing this you might be abled to restart or stop the service and see if that helps...
The applications that your trying to start might use the same service which probably needs to be restarted.
First try restarting your computer, see if that works since all services will then restart. If that doesn't work try this:

go to start -> search -> component services -> services

Find the service that might cause this issue (user account controll perhaps?), right click -> start

7-year-old Gateway notebook w/ 1gb RAM.  Just finished a reinstall of vista, hundreds of updates, SP2.  As I have done in the past, I went to Black Viper's site for his list of services that can be disabled.  I must have disabled something I shouldn't have, because now I get a "the service  cannot accept control messages."
 
I've tried running BV's registry patch that returns services to their default, but I get the Message when I tried.  Tried opening Services in Control Panel, and get the Message.   I'm afraid to reboot into safe mode and try anything, because at least right now I have my broadband connected, and I'm afraid if I reboot, I might not even be able to do that!

A:I disabled some services "the service cannot accept control messages"

Hi,
 
Since you have just finished a complete install and updating, you should have a long list of restore points created.
 
Try a system restore closest to the time prior to making the changes to your services.
 
Remember that any/all updates/programs will need to be reinstalled if you have to go back too far.
 
Despite what you may read on the web, it is best to leave the services installed with the operating system alone!
 
Some 3d Party services can be changed from automatic to manual, but you better know what you  are doing.
 
You can use the System Configuration Utility (MSCONFIG) to temporarily disable a non Microsoft service for troubleshooting/testing.
 
Once you find out that the system is not affected go back into MSCONFIG enable the service, then use SERVICES.MSC to set that service to manual.
 
 
 
Best of luck to you and Please keep BC posted!

I've been having a lot of issues with my PC lately..
To start, Windows Aero completely disappears and reverts to Windows Classic, however only in Windows Explorer and Internet Explorer. It no longer appears in the list to re-select it either. I checked Services and noticed that themes is enabled. When I try to restart it in C:\WINDOWS\Resources\Themes it gives me this error: The theme could not be loaded because the theme service is not running. I am also not able to access Services through Control Panel\Administrative Tools..I receive the following error: The service cannot accept control messages at this time. In addition to this, there are numerous services that have stopped working when I look at Task Manager.

Another issue I am getting, which may be related, is Windows Explorer freezing for about 1 - 2 minutes when saving/copying and pasting a file. It goes blank for a while and allows me to complete the task. This constantly happens and is quite frustrating. Everything seems to work fine (including the above issue) when I restart the computer. It used to allow me to use it for a day or so before giving me these issues, however now it starts within the first 5 minutes.

Finally, I seem to be having issues when I click on some Google search results, where it leads me to adds. This normally happens just once and will allow me to get to the desired site.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

Thanks!

If Windows is denying access to the Hosts file, run HijackThis as Administrator or disable the UAC first.

Hiya

======
There is a flaw in the Winsock Proxy service in Microsoft Proxy
Server 2.0, and the Microsoft Firewall service in ISA Server 2000,
that would allow an attacker on the internal network to send a
specially crafted packet that would cause the server to stop
responding to internal and external requests. Receipt of such a
packet would cause CPU utilization on the server to reach 100%, and
thus make the server unresponsive. The Winsock Proxy service and
Microsoft Firewall service work with FTP, telnet, mail, news,
Internet Relay Chat (IRC), or other client applications that are
compatible with Windows Sockets (Winsock). These services allow
these applications to perform as if they were directly connected to
the Internet. These services redirect the necessary communications
functions to a Proxy Server 2.0 or ISA Server computer, thus
establishing a communication path from the internal application to
the Internet through it.

I recently changed ISPs and added a Netgear wireless router to the modem. I configured the modem and router useing my PC laptop, and generated a WEP Key with 64-bit encryption. I was able to successfully connect with my WEP Key on my PC and on my TiVo, but my Mac (which is a new MacBook) will not accept my WEP Key, saying there is an error in joining the network.

The dropdown menu in the AirPort window has four choices: (1) WEP Password, (2) WEP 40/128-bit hex, (3) WEP 40/128-bit ASCII and (4) LEAP. I'm assuming that since my WEP key is set to 64-bit encryption, that I should use the first option, which is what I have been trying.

I was able to connect my MacBook to my old wirelss signal, which I have not disconnected it (it's cable-based and runs from a different modem/router; my new ISP is DSL-based), and that signal also has a WEP Key with 64-bit encryption.

I also tried disabling the WEP key encryption for a time, and then I was able to secure a connection to the new signal, but I want to maintain the encryption. Please help.

I have tried all four sticks in different combinations, so it isn't a particular module that is "bad". I followed the voltage settings recommended by Corsair and have tried altering them, but I can't get all four to work at the same time. They were all purchased together, by the way. I can't find anything on Intel's site or Corsair's sited about a known problem. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Bill

Hello,

This is about not being able to accept cookies, I E version 6.

I have changed and re-changed setting in internet options. I put the bar at accept all cookies. I have shut down my firewall and this did not help. I am using Zonealarm.
I have seen this addressed on several news groups and no one seems to have an answer. I have searched the knowledge base and tried several suggestions, no help.

Starting out, I E 6 was working okay, and then it quit accepting cookies. I asked for some knowledge from this forum. It was suggested that I use I E version 5.5.

I have Win98, Pentium II, 233 mhz, 196 megs ram, 32 g hd, plenty of room.

I used a program call IEradicator to remove I E 6. (http:\\www.98lite.net)
This did seem to remove I E from my computer. I ran it twice. I scandisk and defraged, ran regclean, scandisk and defrag again. I installed I E version 5.5. I still can not get this computer to accept cookies. I discovered that the internet options drop down was the same as version 6. This options menu still has a privacy tab included. I don’t think that this is part of version 5.5.

I still can’t accept cookies.

Does anyone know what to work over, to help me correct this main problem?

I know that I can empty all data and reformat. Might be what has to be. Did not want to do this.
 

A:Cookies, can not accept

Here are two possible ways that may help .

Double check your settings ( close & reopen ) to make sure everthing has been done correctly & the changes have stuck .

Dear Fred: Let me tell you of a simple way I have come up with
for managing cookies. It may not work for everyone, but it
works for me.
In the Internet Options (Security tab), I set both the
Internet zone and the Trusted Sites zone to Medium security.
Then, in the Internet zone, I disallow cookies that are stored
on the computer, while allowing session cookies. In the
Trusted Sites zone, I allow both. Whenever I run into a site
which needs to store a cookie (like eBay, Amazon, cable TV
listings, etc.) I add that site to the Trusted Sites zone. At
the end of the day, I have on the drive those cookies which I
need to keep, and all others are history.
To make this even easier, I use a small application called
Trust Setter, which puts two buttons in the IE toolbar, Add to
Trusted Sites, and Add to Restricted Sites. Get it from
http://www.jasons-toolbox.com/ScriptRepository/ .
Available by right clicking on the unwanted page .

What is the highest CPU speed supported by an Abit SD7-533 Motherboard?
 

A:What CPU will this motherboard accept

I would suppose these vague lists are close to the truth http://www.cpu-upgrade.com/mb-ABIT/SD7-533.html but it might support faster P4s with 400 FSB, too.

Hi, is it possible to incluse a tick box on a html form which then 'energises' the 'Submit' button?

E.g. I have a form which i want people to read and agree (via a tick-box) to a disclaimer before the submit button on the form is energised.

I do have a vaugue knowlege of Html, but am stumped on this issue.

Thanks, Paul.
 

A:Accept 'Tick-box'

You need something other than HTML to accomplish this. SOme sort of active scripting. I an sure there something that can be done with Java type form validation.

I have an ABIT KX7333 board with AWARD Bios/softmenu 3. I am using corsair pc2700 ddr ram and an Athlon xp 1800+. Everytime I go into my BIOS and change anything, namely the memory CAS from 2.5 to 2, or anything with the memory for that matter, it won't boot. I know the memory can run at that rate but it jsut isn't working. Also, I am using an Nvidia GeForce 4 ti 4200 vid card, and I can't change the AGP settings for optimal use. The only thing I can use is the optimum performance defaults, which is not as optimal as I know it can be. I have the latest Bios update, what is the deal here? Any input would be greatly appreciated
 

A:BIOS won't accept changes....?

Possibly insufficient power, I've had the problem in the past while trying to run larger amounts of RAM at higher speeds. I had to go to a 400 watt PS.

Hi everybody,

it's my first post here and I have a serious problem.

My old laptops motherboard burned, so I stripped the RAM and HDD an threw the rest away. I bought a used Toshiba Satellite Pro without the HDD.

I put the old one into new laptop. But I had set HDD pw on my old laptop. I remember it 100% correct but the new computer does not unlock the drive. It says: HDD Password Invalidate Press any key to continue.

I tried going through Bios but it says "Registered". AndI cant select the Drive, going up/down on the list they just skip this drive.

I also tried booting straight from windows Disc to format and reinstall Windows but it askes HDD password before even booting up the disc.
Any Ideas how I can get rid of password or get the computer to accept it?
eidt: I dont necessarily need the data from the disc. I do lose some valuable pictures but I am happy if I can just format and install new wimdows.
 

A:Failing to accept HDD PW

howdy and welcome. You may want to re-read the rules page, as we will not assist in bypassing passwords.

Please do not ask for assistance with (or ways to bypass) a forgotten or unknown password, personal identification number (PIN) or any other type of access code that may be required on a computer, mobile device or web site.

Ok, I've got a dual P3 700 at work that we really can't use in it's current state at work. It's a fiery tower that was meant to be a print server from EFI . They won't even support the hardware on their website. It's got a Tyan Thunderbolt mainboard in it. They used their proprietary BIOS when they built it so you couldn't change the OS. After finally figuring out what mainboard was in there I went to Tyan's website and downloaded their version of the BIOS and flashed it. Now when I try to install 2K, I can partition the drive with no problems but it keeps telling me that I need to choose a windows 2000 compatible partition to install it on. It doesn't give me the option to format the partition in the setup. I am able to go into the recovery console and use the format command to format the partition, but it keeps giving me the same error in the setup. The hard drive is a SCSI IBM running from the onboard SCSI ultra 2. I checked all the BIOS & SCSI BIOS settings and they seem to be correct. I tried downloading the latest SCSI drivers and loading them before the install, but that doesn't make a difference either. I've also tried different partition sizes with no luck. What I don't get is why can I partition the drive and format it (in recovery console), but can't install on it? Can anyone give me any ideas on what to do? Thanks
 

A:Can't get Win 2K to accept partitions

Have you tried formatting with Partition Magic? I use version 8 to partition all custom systems that I build and I love it, it works grate! I have never had a problem using PM8.

Try as I might, I can't insert a cd in the CD drive.
It has been working and I've tried EVERYTHING that's
on the help line, but really, it doesn't have a cd in
and when I try to put in a cd, it just goes in a bit and
then won't grab and pull it in. Feels like it's butting

I am running Windows XP Professional, Version 2002, SP3 in a corporate environment. I use IE7 version 7.0.5730.11.

When I try to add a website as a favorite it doesn't "stick". I can see it on my favorites list...but then without any other action from myself it will disappear. Something is deleting them. The weird thing is...not all get deleted. Some stick and some don't, but most don't.

What is going on!??

A:IE7 won't accept new favorites

Welcome to TSF

Seems to be a common issue but no real solution

Is your Favorites folder in the default location:
C:\Documents and Settings\user account name\Favorites ?

Try the procedures in this article:
http://windowsxp.mvps.org/ie/redxorg.htm

Uninstalling /reinstalling IE7 may help. If XP SP3 was installed after IE7,
it should be uninstalled before uninstalling IE7.
IEBlog- IE and Windows XP Service Pack 3:
http://blogs.msdn.com/ie/archive/200...and-xpsp3.aspx

When installing/reinstalling IE7 disable antispyware/antivirus programs and
follow other tips/warnings at http://www.ie-vista.com/known_issues.html

Hello,

By some reason Win7 only wil run with 1 x 2 GB RAM.

First i couldn't install Win7 - i got BSOD wit somthing about VSMRAID.SYS and IRQL NOT EQUAL.
Then I try to remove som hardware, and when I removed one of my to 2 GB RAM, then Win7 was installing perfect.

Afterwods I tryed to inset the second 2 GB RAM again - but then BSoD came again.

What is wrong? Why do Win7 give BSoD?

Win XP was OK with 2 x 2 GB - Why is Win7 not?

RAM: 2 x 2 GB GEIL, PC2-6400, DDR2-800
Mainboard: MSI P45 Zilent/Platinum with the newest BIOS.

Please help me :-)

A:Windows7 only accept 2 GB RAM

Hi,

Welcome to 7 forums

In this regard, i guess the problem is with the 2 GB RAM or the RAM slot. The issue is not with Windows 7.

► Lets say RAM 1 works, RAM 2 caused the issue.

* To find if the defect is with that RAM or the slot, remove the working RAM 1 and place the RAM 2 in that same slot.

* If your Windows works fine, then the problem may be with the other RAM slot. If the RAM 2 causes BSOD now, then the issue is with the RAM. You may have to replace that RAM 2.

* Additionally, you can try interchanging the RAM slots and boot up !.

Hope this helps

Hi guys,

I'm going crazy here... I am looking for a way to enable VPN connections TO my Windows 7 machine. I cannot seem to find this anywhere.

I know this was kinda hidden on Vista too, but in Win7 I cannot even find it!

Can someone PLEASE point me in the right direction. I'd like to be able to connect via VPN to my home machine when I'm not around, you know - access shared folders, printers and such.

I really hope they put this in the beta and that I am just blind and not seeing it.

Can anyone assist with the following?

i Fitted new Asus P5GDC-V Deluxe mobo, board with a P4 3.2 gig processor, the board does post.
However on completing the IDE scan the following message appears.

"An ultra ATA/66 (or faster) drive is connected with a 40-pin IDE cable on the primary channel.
Drive speed is downgraded to ultra ATA/33 mode"

after seeing the message the PC suggests a hardware change has taken place but will not boot from the primary drive,
The correct IDE cable is used (in the correct cofiguration) in the primary IDE slot.
in the BIOS the drive is seen but it appears not recognised?
The boot H/D drive is A seagate Barracuda ATA 1V (model ST38002 1a) 80 GIG.
relitively new with W XP loaded.

If anyone has come across this before i'd appreiciate some guidence.
