[SOLVED] Display Errors in IE8 and Excel after msconfig modifications

Q: [SOLVED] Display Errors in IE8 and Excel after msconfig modifications

Hi guys,

I deactivated some processes in msconfig to improve the startup speed of my computer. I always did some changes, rebooted the computer and looked whether everything is still working. It looked as if everything was working, but then I recognised that there were blue frames around my desktop symbols:

Kostenlos Bilder hochladen | img4web.com

Further I recognised, that Internet Explorer 8 and Microsoft Excel 2003 show massive Display Errors (the main problem is, that images are not displayed properly):

Kostenlos Bilder hochladen | img4web.com

So I decided to re-activate the processes I deactivated before the last re-boot. It didn't change a thing. Then I decided to re-activate all processes, but even this didn't help:

Kostenlos Bilder hochladen | img4web.com

Apart from the changes is msconfig I haven't done any changes in the time when the error first appeared. It seems quite strange to me, that re-activating the processes does not fix the problem.

My operating system is Windows XP Professional SP3.
Unfortunately System recovery was disabled before I did the changes (Yes, I will activate it for future modifications on my system), so I can't simply un-do everything.

I'm really desperate about this problem and really hope, that someone here can help me (otherwise I will re-install Windows, but this seems a bit excessive ;-) ).

Many thanks in advance ! :)

I've tried changing the row hieght, and everything else I can think of, but can't view the spreadsheet normally. Other tabs in the spreadsheet do not appear either.

im on win xp sp3, system scanners are cccleaner,nod32 and superanti spyware.

this is what happened.

im browsing though my yahoo mail inbox, saw this spam (subject: unknown)
decided to add the email address to blocked emails. i have to open the email so that i can see the address.
the problem began.

these are my troubleshooting procedures:
1. ran scanners - nothing detected
2. cleaned cookies, history
3. ccleaner registry scan - nothing
4. system restore - still
5. imported a backup reg file

I believe that upon opening the email it modified some of registry keys for the keyboard since i dont see any unrecognized processes in my task manager, at least from the visible list.

it is quite annoying since i use keyboard shortcuts alot like ctrl+arrow keys to navigate on some texts.

also some keys that have been modified is:

insert key = stand bys the PC
pressing - = -0
pressing 1 = `1

any help will be very much appreciated

A:[SOLVED] delete button shuts down PC and other key modifications

Hi people..

as suspected opening the email modified current keyboard mapping.

After hours of digging solutions in the net i found this one:

Restore keyboard mapping - Dev Hardware

reinstallation of the keyboard registry keys for the US layout solved my issue..

my keyboard is running smoothly after the steps given in that thread.

lesson learned: if the spam is in the inbox, move it to spam folder to reduce the risks if you intend to view it.

sorry can't find any edit button on my original post.

I'm tagging this as solved.

Hi there,

I have an excel sheet i use to conduct a search. Right now it works almost perfect for what i need. I enter in the search criteria, and it goes to another workbook finds the results and displays the entire row in the original workbook. I couldnt be more pleased with how it works, except for 1 thing.

The problem comes in when there are multiple results for the search. If there are multiple results in only pastes 1 result (and oddly it hides the next row) in the original workbook. This is a problem as i need it to paste all results fine.

Whats interesting is that it will paste all results if the data is within the same workbook (if the search and the data are in the same workbook it pastes all results just fine). But since they are on separate workbooks, it only pastes 1 result.

Here is the code i use, its attached to a button in the search workbook, this is where you enter the search criteria and where the results paste, it has the code. Hopefully you'll see the problem once you look at the code. I assume the problem is how the 2nd workbook (the data) is referenced because this issue happens when referencing an outside workbook. But this was the only way i could get it to work with another workbook.

Thanks for any help you can provide!

I keep a monthly budget record of our expenses in worksheets labeled by month. There are 13 worksheets in a file (1 for annual total). I have row labels such as "wine, food, our cats, etc" & enter data from our joint account, as purchases are made, into each cell. E.G.: B12 might be: =34.66+73.45+2.68 etc. At the end of the month I "proof out" our account to reconcile it with my bank statement. There are always missed or multiple spreadsheet entries that make the excel total different from the banks & I have to find them. I use online banking & my probem began when the bank "upgraded" their online service & no longer allowed me to sort the debits by amount. Before they did this I could look at the excel cell entries & find them very quickly on the banks sorted printout & check them off. Since I can no longer sort the banks data it has become much more difficult to do this monthly chore. Is it possible to sort the multiple number entries in each cell & display them in a column? BTW: I don't mean to sort within the cell, but all cells contents together for display, so it will look like the banks used to look.
Any help really appreciaced.

Hi guys !

I am working on an excel worksheet. I have enabled the Developer Tab and just added an Active X List Box to the spreadsheet.

Once the List Box is in place, i want it to display contents taken from another spreadsheet within the same workbook. This source spreadsheet has currently a dimension of 100 rows x 8 columns.

The List Box should only display the whole B column, that is a total of 100 items on the list.

On the List Box properties, i set this values:
ListFillRange = Items!$B$2:$B:$100 (that is, to display the values from the "Items" worksheet contained on the column B, starting from row 2 till row 100.

Right after setting this value, i get a dialog box stating "Not Enough Resources to display completely" and thatīs it. The List Box stays there, the contents are displayed, but as soon as I click the OK button and select anything within the List Box, the message keeps popping up. This happens everytime i do select any value within the List Box.

After saving the workbook, i close Excel, open it again, the first thing that pops up is the "Not Enough Resources to Display completely" message. I click OK, the List Box is there with its proper contents, but as soon as I try to select anything from the list, the message appears again.

Any ideas on what might be causing this problem ? Thank you all !

P.D. All this is being done on a Windows XP machine with Office Professional 2007.

I've made this 'mistake' a few times over the years, but don't know how.

I've got a formula (or a date) in a cell. At some point, my clumsy fingers cause the cells in the worksheet to convert from the results of a formula (or format, like the date) to the actual text in the cell.

For example, the date "Sep 07" will look like "39326".

An if then statement that should read "1" will look like this "=IF(H772>0,1,0)"

the quotes are added, and not part of the cell or the result.

I've checked format cells, and the result is showing in the sample, but I can't get it to appear normally on my worksheet.

My best guess is that there is a ctl + something that I'm pressing - but no luck in finding it so far.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thx, geo.

Hi there,

So, i own a pc, a laptop and an xbox 360 and they are all connected to my home network via a router. now, when i have all three of these running at the same time it can cause a great deal of annoyance and confusion when we are all trying to compete for the most amount of bandwidth,

For example, my brother will be playing halo 2 and have msn open and i will be trying to surf the net on my laptop. now my brother will be complaing that he is not getting "host" and spends some of his games in red bar and my internet pages take a few minutes to load.

so i was wondering if there are any programs or freeware out there that i can go and buy so that i can modify it so that i can tell my router to give my xbox (lets say....) 60 percent of my bandwidth while splitting the other 40% between the two computers and then when the xbox is off it diverts the bandwidth to where it is needed most

If there is anything out there that can help me please post a name and/or link and it would be greatly appreciated.

New to XP (media center sp2), not new to Windows OS. Are there any "out of the box" tweaks/modifications that are recommended? Any XP tweak guides? I am not a gamer, don't overclock...just want it stable and lean without all the unecessary background apps running and dont need all the superfluous software.

For example, do many with XP disable system restore? I did with my old OS as I have an external HD withh system backup images. Should I keep the "enable write caching on the disk" checked in the HD setting in the device manager? Is Corel Photo CCentter bundled with any other software? I have many other questions, but willl settle for feedback first.

Also, if anyone has recently purchased a Dell E510 (or other Dell) can you tell me all the trial ware that I can uninstall? I am afraid to get rid of too much because I fear its bundled into other apps that I need. I curse the OEMs for doing this.

Thanks for any advice or links

ipconfig /release
netsh interface ip set address offboard static 111.111.111.111 255.0.0.0
netsh interface ip set address offboard dhcp
ipconfig /renew


Anyone could help me to make this a working file at Windows Seven?
I used it on XP to change my IP until now, but when I try to run now it doesn't work
Obs: Offboard is the name of the connection

A:[Help] Modifications in a batch file

Try this:


Code:

ipconfig /release
netsh interface ip set address "Offboard" static 111.111.111.111 255.0.0.0
netsh interface ip set address "Offboard" dhcp
ipconfig /renew
Of course it might work without the quotation marks, but if the name is Offboard then you'll need it capitalized correctly for it to work, IIRC.

Also, the help info in the command shows some other options as well that you might want ot take a look at - in *particular* if the OS is still *internally* recognizing the connection as "Local Area Connection":


Code:
C:\>netsh interface ip set address -?

Usage: set address [name=]<string>
[[source=]dhcp|static]
[[address=]<IPv4 address>[/<integer>] [[mask=]<IPv4 mask>]
[[gateway=]<IPv4 address>|none [gwmetric=]<integer>]
[[type=]unicast|anycast]
[[subinterface=]<string>]
[[store=]active|persistent]

Parameters:

Tag Value
name - Interface name or index.
source - One of the following values:
dhcp: Enables DHCP for configuring IP addresses for
the specified interface.
static: Disables DHCP for configuring IP addresses for
the specified interface. This value must be
specified if an address or a gateway is being

How can I modify the apps that are started during bootup? I used to use a Windows app but I have forgotten the program name. Can you help?

What do you mean by modify?
You can use a program called Autoruns to control what programs start.

Can anybody answer the following questions about a laptop power adapter?

Is there a maximum length for the dc cord? In other words why do they locate the adapter 1/2 way down the cord instead of closer to the outlet.

Is the small cylinder around the cord about 3" before it enters the laptop some sort of choke/filter?

Thanks.

There is no particular reason for this, either side of the power supply could be lengthened or shortened.

Hi all, I've been hard at work in modifiying my watercooling unit, I know it is not such a good product, but after modifications it is amazing. Soon I will post some pictures if anyone is interested. Here is a list of what I've done:

1. Drained the system
2. Took it apart
3. Took out all stock fans, replaced with Antec Led Fans
4. Took out the restrictive stock tubing, replaced with Tygon 3/8
5. Ran leak test for 3 hours, at the beginning there was one leak, which I fixed with some tightening of c-clamp.
6. Modified front panel, placed another grill, as well as the back panel
7. Modified knob lightning

After all this, when I replaced the tubing, I immediately noticed that the flow meter was spinning much faster, and this effectively reduced my temperatures about 2-3 Celsius at load. Replacing the fans, with better airflow and quieter fans also brought the temps down 1-2 Celsius, also the use of Danger Den MCT-5 Coolant brought my temperatures down 2-3 Celsius as well.
In the end, I used to get a load temp of about 44 Celsius, now I only get about 37-38 Celsius. Quite pleased with the project and acheivement. If you guys want pictures, or illustrations of how I did this, just ask. I will post them later.

1) Open msconfig and put a tick in "Normal Startup". Then reboot.
2) DO NOT use msconfig to make changes to startup items. Always use a dedicated app (such as Mike Lin's Startup Control Manager) to manage startup items or services.msc to change system services. Msconfig is a diagnostic utility only.

Hi all, I don't know a lot about computers, so bear with me... I just inherited an HP Pavilion HPE h8-1050 Desktop computer (http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c02859331).  It came with Windows 7, and I plan on upgrading to Windows 10 before the July 26th "free upgrade" deadline. (although I could be talked out of that, if it matters).   I would, ideally, like to install Realtek Audio Manager to replace the Beats Audio that the machine came with.  From what I've read online, it seems that it may not be possible.  I plan to do some audio recording on this new machine, and I don't really want everything filtering through Beats, with its kooky settings and sound manipulations.   I tried to download the Realtek Audio Driver, but after the install it doesn't show up anywhere (other than Add/Remove Programs, strangely).  It doesn't appear in Control Panel, or Device Manager, or Programs.   The only file that shows up in a computer-wide search is the setup file, which I've run twice.  I certainly don't have the option or access to choose it over Beats.  I have a feeling it's simply not compatible.   So I guess my question is this: Is there a modification I can make to this machine (ie, new sound card?) so that I can install and use Realtek? Or is Beats simply hardwired into the motherboard in such a way that there are no alternatives.   Thanks for reading,Nathan

Hi all,
 
After running GMER, I am being notified that there are "rootkit modifications" detected. I'm very concerned, and I'd be grateful if someone could help me out in disinfecting my computer. I can attach or copy&paste logs if required.
 
TDSSKiller and MalwareBytes have not detected anything, but it seems that GMER and RogueKiller do.
 
I am very new to malware detection and removal, so I apologise for any incompetencies.
 
Thank you.
 
Edit: I think I posted this topic in the wrong forum, and that it should have been in the Virus and Malweare Removal forum.

Hello there, I am thinking of puchasing an M710 and I had a few questions I am hoping people could answer for me before taking the plunge. In terms of the power supply I belive its quite low wattage, in the low 200's - is it possible to upgrade this at a later date. I may down the line wish to buy a graphics card and I know it will need a better psu. In terms of graphics cards, the power should be the only issue, the case itself is big enough to fit some standard graphics cards. For RAM, how many RAM slots are there? if I get the 8GB option, is that going to be one stick of 8 or 2x4gbs - again if I want to upgrade this, will there be an available slot, or will I have to get rid of the exsisting RAM? I am going to add an SSD, will they automatically load the OS on the SSD as opposed to the standard 500gb hard drive? Thanks a lot in advance

I guess I'll ask this here as I cannot get through to RT Se7en Lite themselves. I used eicfg removal so I can have my install USB work for any of the versions. When I go to use RT Se7en Lite it asks which version I want to modify. I think the somewhat minor things I want to change will work for all if not most of the versions. Will it actually modify them all or is there any way to select more than one version or do I have to do each individually? Or run the eicfg after I do mods?

Also does anyone know what is with RT Se7en Lite? I sent an email to their support email and I get (several days of) messages that it is not deliverable: 454 4.7.0 TLS not available due to local problem. Their main website will never connect.

Also is there a W7 download available that has all of the updates or at least most of them to start with? I have one referred to from here that has SP1, but it takes tons of updates.

Thanks here.

Hi everybody,
ATA V. 1.9.7312.32791 - fresh install, no update
Just recently installed Microsoft's ATA. I only use lightweight deployment option for ata gateways on every domain controller available, no other ata gateways in use. So for my understanding I don't need any configuration of event forwarding since the lightweight
gateways are able to read any event locally.

I am not able to get a report about modifications of sensitive groups, it's greyed out. An informational message below it says: "No modifications of sensitive groups were observed, make sure that events forwarding is properly configured."
I changed many things about my sensitive groups for testing purpose btw.
Any hints?
Thanks!

Thanks, regards, tim
