Q: computer programing nightmare

Why are programs so difficult to operate and when you find a problem, the error message is written in greek! Nobody understands your language but you geeks who eat, drink and live this junk all day. You design these sites to make it nearly impossible to make contact with a living person, which adds to the frustration. You want an example, look what I had to go through just to get this to post, ridiculous! My computer came with McAffe installed, I want it gone and after a half day bouncing around in my computer I discovered it will probably follow me to my grave. Even my add/remove program cannot delete it, I am sure that is a programming detail so you can't dump it. Who's computer is this, mine or yours? if it's yours you better send me a check. Computers are the only things we spend a lot of hard earned money on and wind up having no control of, thats wrong. I want McAffe out of my computer now! It is probably the worst program ever written. Please help or add reinforcment to my theory that computers and those who write the programs are out of control.

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.)

This is the craziest spyware/virus I have ever seen. I have removed this spyware/virus cr*p from many computers, but this one is unreal. When it first started I was getting the Windows Security Center window popup and little notification popups in the system tray. Someone!(wife) clicked the wrong thing and now it has been completely hijacked. It won't boot into normal mode, only safe mode. I can't run ANY of my antispyware/antivirus software, something is preventing them from running. I was able to install Spybot, but it wont run. Malwarebytes, SPybot, norton, adaware, Hijack this, nothing works in safe mode. I cant run system restore, it is off and there are no restore points. I tried starting with last good config at the boot screen but that did nothing. As for the browsers, IE wont run, i click it (the icon is gone, its just a small dos window looking icon) and it says windows can not access the specified path, you dont have permission. FF just runs weird, slow, pages wont load. I am trying to backup all her stuff now, get all the files onto a backup drive.

The computer is running XP SP2

Does anyone out there have any suggestions? Someone PLEASE help us. Thank you

A friend of mine asked me to look at their computer, its an older P4 no HT. I cannot access any command line operations, I cannot get into the user portion of the control panel. It just says missing RunDLL32.exe select appropriate program from the list. It was riddled with viruses, and spyware and I used Norton to remove all the viruses.

I go to load some antivirus software into the computer and it tells me. Run DLL 32.exe missing invalid operation. Then please select the software from the list to open this file. What is this all about?

So I asked my friend for the windows XP disk. They don't know what happened to it, so I can only assume they never had it to start with. I can use a XP Pro reatil disk to log on into the command line, but it wont accept many commands like net user. The computer also will not let me select "safe mode" when I tap F8. Any suggestions?

A:Custom computer nightmare XP

You can replace the missing Rundll32.exe in the System32 folder by copying a backup of the file located in C:\WINDOWS\system32\dllcache. If you can't do this through Explorer or via a command prompt, you could boot up to a Linux utility disc and drag and drop it. It's possible a virus replaced or deleted the file, it's also possible you are still infected with Malware.

So I left my computer at home with the parents when I moved to a new city. Big Mistake.

I'm infected, and my poor computer is a wreck. Before I have to format, maybe someone can help. I'm being redirected to a search page, and are recieving numerous pop-ups outside of normal browsing. I have all these unknown processes using up my ram. I just want to get rid of all this idle crap in my registry. I tried running Spybot, which found alexa, Wild Tangent, and dso exploit.

Hi am new to java and i have a program my teacher wants us to practice and write.
Here is the program instructions:
Using the PairOfDice class from programming project 5.10, design and implement a class to play a game called Pig. In this game, the user competes against the computer. On each turn, the current player rolls a pair of dice and accumulates points. The goal is to reach 100 points before your opponent does. If, on any turn, the player rolls a 1, all points accumulated for that round are forfeited and control of the dice moves to the other player. If the player rolls two 1ĺs in one turn, the player loses all points accumulated thus far in the game and loses control of the dice. The player may voluntarily turn over the dice after each roll. There for the player must decide to either roll again (be a Pig) and risk losing points or relinquish control of the dice, possibly allowing the other player to win. Implement the computer player such that it always relinquishes the dice after accumulating 20 or more points in any given round.
Here are the 5 classes required

Admittedly, this is a somewhat stupid question from a beginner. (sorry)

Microsoft has made availible (for free !!), "Express" versions of their various programming languages. These include Visaual Basic 2005 / C++ / C## / and J##. I've played around years ago with VB-4, but it's been years and I've forgoted 90% of it.

So here's my questions:

1) What's the primary differences between these four programming languages ? Meaning; where would you use C++ instead of C##; or J## instead of _______ ?

2) I would think Visual Basic 2005 is the best place for me to start ? Would you agree ?

3) There seems to be T-O-N-S of "how to" books out there for learning each. Thoughts as to which series are the easiest to understand ? (meaning LOTS of illustrations / clear "non-super geek" only explanations )

You could check the power supply with a power supply tester from your local computer store. It saves a lot of grief regarding the PS.

I have a 2 year old Sony Vaio with Windows XP. Everything was fine until two days ago. I downloaded a photo off of a PhotoShop site. It sat on my desktop not as a folder but as a 1 and a half inch by two inch photo.

As I was finishing my work, I thought I'd click the photo off by selecting the "x" in the minimize maximize off menu that formed the top border of the photo.

Unfortunately I hit something else and the photo became my wallpaper.

I forget what I did to get my original wallpaper back, but at that point, when I saw my original wallpaper back, I thought everything was fine.

I then decided to go to the start menu and use the search function.

While searching for a file, the ominous dialogue box came up saying that there was an error with the Windows Explorer end of things and did I want to report it to MicroSoft?

I did not do so then, but later on, again when trying to use "Search" I got the same message. I decided that I'd never be allowed to use Search again unless I reported it, so I ageed to do it. This triggered AOL online to start, but AOL was confused about what it considered "an unrequested URL" and
then AOL froze.

I tried everything. Could not get AOL to minimize, turn off and shut down or anything else.

So I turned the computer off. When I attempted to re-boot, the computer came up in a different manner than I have seen before. It asked as it was booting if I wanted to hit F8 for a reboot in ... Read more

Is there a modern program that I can use & don't have to compile and is as simple as MS Basic? I Know it used to be called "Spaghetti Basic" but it worked!!

It was even used in the early "Space Race"

You are in luck - there are 2 choices (both free)

Microsoft Small Basic <== typically used by first-time programming students

Visual Basic 2010 Express | Microsoft Visual Studio <== the full-function Basic programming language with all the bells & whistles.

I am well aware that this is probably not the proper place to ask this. But i do think that the people who mod and frequent this sight have good sense and i would value your opinion in this matter.

MY twelve year old son is very interested in computers (games, robots, you name it). I think that being fluent in a programming language (or several) will be incredibly useful in his future. I bought him this book "Python for Kids: A Playful Introduction to Programming" he really liked it. He got about half way through it. School work, sailing, soccer ate up all his time and the programming just did not happen.

school let out and now he has time to pursue it. I have been told that Code Academy (python) would be good for him, i have no problem paying the upgrade fee for the full Monty.

I did a few of the lessons, and it is wildly different from the book i gave him (Python for kids) is this something that he can benefit from?

Would anyone care to recommend program languages that are appropriate for 12 year old?

How about online tutorials, books, ect?

can anyone point me to more resources?

Your job is to transform numbers 1, 2, 3, . . ., 12 into the corresponding month names January, February, March, . . ., December. Implement a class Month whose constructor parameter is the month number and whose getName method returns the month name. Hint: Make a very long string "January February March . . .", in which you add spaces such that each month name has the same length. Then use substring to extract the month you want.

Use the following class as your tester class:
/**
This program tests the Month class.
*/
public class MonthTester
{
public static void main(String[] args)
{
Month jan = new Month(1);
System.out.println("Name: " + jan.getName());
System.out.println("Expected: January");
Month mar = new Month(3);
System.out.println("Name: " + mar.getName());
System.out.println("Expected: March");
Month dec = new Month(12);
System.out.println("Name: " + dec.getName());
System.out.println("Expected: December");
}
}

Then, write a Sub procedure thattakes the studentĺs name and average and displays the output as shown, with aletter grade. Your main click event procedure should (1) declare variables forthe studentĺs name and 3 grades (2) get the values of these out of the textboxes (3) call the function, sending the 3 grades as arguments (youĺll need todeclare an average variable to hold the function result), and finally (4) callyour display procedure, sending the student name and average to this procedure.

Hi zergpc208,

I can't answer your first question.

To get a page to refresh each 10 seconds, you have to write the following line between the <head>, </head> tag of your HTML page :

Its really time consuming having to go through right clicking and going down to 'send to' then across to 'move to 'Folder (move)' and then across to the file i want to move the song to.

Before anyone tells me that Windows 7 has the Virtual Machine that can run 32 bit programs I know this. But what I would like to know is running a 32 bit program in a 64 Bit world matter? Case in point, I'm running Office 97 (32 bit) in windows 7 and it seems to run very well. I'm just wondering if I might have problems later one.

Thanks

A:32 Bit Programing running 64 Bit World

No, timlab1955, if Office 97 is running well for you on your 64 bit Win 7, you will not have problems later on. You might, however, want to consider upgrading Office eventually.

Pretty much all 32 bit programs run fine in Win 7 x64 and compatibility mode can be a help for those that don't.

If you're really in a pinch, just install Virtual XP (you have Win 7 Professional) and you'll be able to run anything that works in XP that, otherwise, doesn't work in Win 7.

Old man wants to learn programing language like Pearl. PC Windows 98Plus and I need to start at near idiot level. Disability income is on the thin side so MONEY is an object.
 

A:Entry level programing Language

---oops---

I just re read your post and seen that you mentioned perl. I didnt catch that the first time and that is why I steered this toward VB. I am going to leave my post so others can add to my logic, correct me if I am wrong, or just flame the heck out of me for singing the praises of Visual Basic.

---/oops---

I am just getting started in the programming field myself. When I first started looking into programming it was suggested that I start with Visual Basic because the learning curve is lower then with the more advanced languages like C++. And VB is a great stepping stone for the more advanced languages so it is a good place to start.

From a beginners point of view (mine) VB is very powerful and will be probably be the only language I will ever need to do the things I need to do.

For instance, with the knowledge I gain from VB I can customize MS Office Apps with Visual Basic for Applications which is built into most MS Office Apps and can make them more even more powerful, I can use it to write Active Server Pages and VBScript for web development. And this is just a few things that you can do with the knowledge you gain from it and without ever leaving the Windows/Office programming environment.

Sams Publishing has a Teach Yourself Visual Basic 6 book that has the VB6 Creation Edition included with it.

Are you telling us about a program you know of (but didn't mention), or proposing that one be written (but we are not software developers here), or asking us to name one such (if there exists as you want it)?

Anyway, there are many programs that generate and manage passwords. An easy way to enter them is to get your browser to do it automatically at each site you are a member of, then you don't have to remember or search for them.

My apologies if this is not the correct place to put up this question, but i saw that the PowerShell section is archived now, so had to put in here.

I am very new to the Powershell programing and trying out a very simple thing but failing.
Situation : for some code I am trying to compare two different integer values and getting the wrong result, below is the simulated code for :
************************************
[int] $a=5
[int] $b=3
if($a > $b)
{write-host "working"}
else
{write-host "not working"}
************************************
Now my problem is that when i press enter it prints "not working", which would mean that value b> value a, which is incorrect. Am I going wrong somewhere?
Please help.

Thanks

Hey guys!

I'm pretty computer noobish. I was trying to get some software, but in my journey I downloaded a .rar file from rapidshare that was an .exe file. When I opened it, awindow to some generic porn (...yayyy?). But I ran malbytes malware program and I think I recovered the computer, emphasis on think.

And! I had also downloaded a torrent "bitlord" program that installed this "torrentman toolbar." I went to add/uninstalled programs and uninstaled it, but the toolbar was still in my firefox window. I left clicked and turned it off, but ever since then my computer has run realllly slowly. And whenever I turned firefox off and start it up again, it'll ask "torrentman toolbar update available" so I think it is still lingering. If I had to guess, I'd say the torrentman toolbar that is cauing my computer to act so laggy.

OH! AND, that night, it sounded like the fan inside of my window's laptop started to spaz. It was a hardware thing, with louddd clicking. Then my computer shut down, and went to a blue screen. It recovered, but now when I start it up it tells me "setra autocheck failed to load," or something close to that wording.

I hope that's enough detail to get things going. Here's my HJT log. Any help would be appreciated, and the more detailed your help is the better. Thank you so much!!
