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.)


I got an ATI video card today and put it into a system here:

Windows 2000 with Service Pack 4 on Gigabyte GA-8IPE1000-G board with socket 478 Pentium 4 3000-MHz processor and 512 RAM.

Video card is here:

It won't play simple MPG clips so I figured I would install the DirectX 9c that's on its CD. I get the following error on attempting to install: "A cabinet file necessary for installation cannot be trusted."

The installation aborts at this point.

A:Install error: "A cabinet file needed for installation cannot be trusted."

Try from here.

I posted this here because I am having trouble installing the Sims 2. I cannot install directx because of this error. I have tried solutions that many people are offering (enabling Cryptographic Services, etc.) However, I was not able to try two of these solutions: Downloading service pack 2 (I get an error on the page), and "repairing" windows (I do not have an XP CD)

However, I do not know if those solutions would help, and am wondering if there is anything else I can try? I really need to get DirectX 9.0c working.

Thanks in advance,

Hey everyone,

Then I am hitting the https://login.microsoftonline.com/<tenant>.onmicrosoft.com/oauth2/token?Content-Type=application/x-www-form-urlencoded end

have asked me to post on these forms. Can someone please help me with this? I am not able to move forward because the error is pretty generic and doesn't give any additional details.

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\.

My Sony Vaio laptop model VPCF224FD developed an interesting problem this morning. It's been chiming as if a media device was disconnected whenever I move or set down the laptop, and now if it happens too often it seems to trigger a BSOD with the following error message:


Stop: 0x000000FE (0x0000000000000008, 0x0000000000000006, 0x0000000000000005, 0xFFFFFA85FFB20)

Sony had me reformat my computer, but it didn't resolve the issue (not too surprised there, but oh well). Neither Sony's agent or google searching the error have been able to tell me anything more about the error code. Before I spend even more money taking it in for repairs, is anyone able to help me clarify the error code please?

Thank you!

From my home computer, I sometimes find that part of a webpage is missing, and in its place is the following message: "Socket read failed in transfer loop while retrieving http://...." This error occurs randomly at some websites; consistently at others. It occurs regardless of the browser I use (e.g., IE6 or Opera). I've tried rebooting the computer (wondering of there's something going on with my network card), but that doesn't make any difference. I have a cable internet connection and 3com Ethernet card. I'm using Windows XP home, 1.7ghz Athlon processor, with 512 megs RAM.

This problem is specific to my home computer. It doesn't occur on my work computer. I have posted my problem on numerous newsgroups and help websites with no results.

I am getting the following error when moving files on the same drive or from one to another:

"Error Moving File or Folder
Cannot remove folder (insert folder name here): The directory is not empty."

This is fairly common (once or twice a month) and it occurs usually with folders containing many subfolders when being moved by explorer gui "Move the selected items", or ctrl-x, ctrl-v . Repeated attempts through the same process seems to move the folders, but the errors increase as the concentration of stubborn folders increases.

There are no event viewer logs corresponding to these errors. (eventvwr.msc: system, or application)

I would have thought this would be a common problem, but extensive searches came up with nothing... so either it is rare, untroubling to others, extremely easy to fix, or my search queries suck. =)
I am going to run Checkdisk to make sure all is well there, and I will repost the likely failure.

Occasionally when I am deleting a file, it is difficult, I have to go through process explorer, search for the thread that is strangely(?) associated with that file in explorer (no reasonable dependencies could be linked, nor is the file being viewed), and kill the thread before deletion.

Try looking in the device manager under sound and video game controllers, You will need to click on the box with the X inside of it to expand the tree. Look for anything with either a red or yellow marking, these will be errors or warnings. You can usually right click on these and go to properties to see what the problem is. It may be a driver issue.

Have been on 2 sites in the past week that have stopped working when an error message came up, telling me that the site's certificate was invalid, that another site might be trying to impersonate the site I was on, etc., etc. One site I was on at the time was FB, and I could not get to the FB site until I reset my cookies. Today it happened again while on the members.directbuy.com site. I could no longer get to the site once this error message started coming up, and clearing cookies did not help this time. I checked your forum, and there in a closed thread I found info on the problem, which helped me end this error message (thank you!!!) Here's what it said to do (it worked!...I can now get back to the site I was on, and it's back to functioning normally!):

1. Click Start and select Control Panel .
(Windows XP Classic View - click on Windows Start button and
select Settings and Control Panel ).
2. Double-click the Internet Options icon.
3. Select the Privacy tab.
4. Under Settings , click Advanced button.
5. Check the box Override automatic cookie handling under Cookies
section in Advanced Privacy Settings window.
6. Under First-party Cookies , select Accept .
7. Under Third-party Cookies , select Accept .
8. Check the box Always allow session cookies .
9. Click OK .
10. Click OK to exit.

Annoying, isn't it?
HOW do we forever get rid of this pox upon humanity, oh woe?
Even after installing the certificate into the root store, and shutting off all the suggested "fixes" in IE Options (mixed content off, server revocation off, check this and that off, etc etc etc)
this stupid pointless annoying message (THEY ARE INTERNAL SERVERS HELLO GO AWAY STUPID RED BOX) won't leave.
Please don't waste everyone's time by suggesting putting the sites into trusted servers (like anyone wants to continually answer the also annoying popup asking if we want to open a site in the trusted zone
THAT'S EVEN WORSE).   THE QUESTION is how to shut off the warning on all browsers on all OS (except for Edge in W10 of course, they made it even worse there)   Like you know, in the registry, for example.  On Windows 7 IE 11, for example.

In Windows 7, whenever I try to select "Open file location" from the right click menu of a shortcut, instead of opening the folder in explorer, it opens a command prompt window with the directory set to file location instead. The same thing happens when I select "Show in Windows Explorer" in iTunes.

How do I fix this?

I am thoroughly stumped on this one. I have a user with a brand new, freshly installed computer running Win7 (Prof, 64bit) and Office Pro 2010 (32bit). The computer is connected to a Win2008 Active Directory with roaming profiles.

When the user downloads a report in .doc format on this computer, every table has a very odd bit of what appears to be scripting code of some type. Here is a sample:
Here is the kicker -
if the user goes to another computer and downloads the .doc file, the code block is not there
if another user logs onto HER computer and downloads the .doc file, the code block is not there
which tells me that the problem is NOT in the document itself, nor is there something wrong with the Office install on her computer.

A:Wierd "script code" in a downloaded .doc file

What are the specs of the other machine? Which service packs of Office?

Off the top of my head you're looking possibly at a failure to copy an excel table over or a vbscript/macro which hasnt/wont run.

Copy the contents from the machine that can see the code into a new .doc file, then open it on the other machine, is it still there?

Do the same the other way around

Hi everyone, my first post.

Just bought a used IBM T41 Thinkpad, which I have to say I'm more than satisfied with. Everything seems to be working fine, however I've yet to have it working on wireless lan. The signal is there, with the little ball swinging it's heart out in the icon tray. Problem is, I get this message coming up all the time saying: "No Certificate has been found". I thought at first that it just meant that I needed to put my DSL code in, but it appears that's not enough.

On further checking in the WLAN properties menu there is a certificate listed with the name "C&W HKT Securnet CA Root", with an expiry date 16.10.2010. When I try to uncheck the button that's next to it, it won't allow me.

Does anyone have any solutions for this?

Many thanks.......!

I've been plagued with shortcuts that seem hellbent on making me want to turn off security settings in Windows 7 that are better left on.

Does this sound woefully familiar?

Well - here is THE CORRECT WAY (especially if the elusive "Unlock" option never presents itself - I certainly have never seen it on any property pages!)

Open an elevated command prompt window.

cd to your shortcut folder.

run the command:

C:\Users\YourName\Desktop\AFolder> icacls MyLink.lnk /L /SetIntegrityLevel med

You can use wildcards, but take care WHERE you do this. Also REMEMBER THE /L OPTION, because that ensures you are processing the shortcut, not the "addressed" program or file pointed to by the shortcut.

Note that the trick is in the (slightly counter-intutive) MEDIUM setting (med) rather than setting it LOW (which is what it often defaults to, thus causing the problem).

Personally, I like to create folders full of "themed" shortcuts on my desktop. Unfortunately, the default behaviour is that any shortcut moved to or created in such subfolders of the desktop(on my system at least) default to low integrity. You have to RAISE the integrity of the shortcuts to stop the endless tedious prompting.

If you cd to a folder full of shortcuts and further subfolders to that folder are also full of shortcuts, then using an asterisk (whilst potentially dangerous anywhere else) will update the ACLS for ALL the shortcuts - and apparently those in subfolders to... Read more

Here is the deal.
In doing drive copies, data recoveries, etc... when we are moving a mass amount of data from one drive to another we run into this problem a lot.
"Error moving file or folder" -- "directory is not empty"
If you restart the move, it will continue on and keep going, restart enough times and eventually it will move all directories.

I think its a programming issue with windows and wonder if anyone has a work around ?

I have a suspicion that the copy process is getting out of sequence. That it is trying to move a folder before it actually emptied it. Possibilities are :
1) windows forgot its place in moving through and navigating numerous sub directories and it is having a problem with “recursive calls.”
2) Computers with hyper threading or dual core processors are spawning the movement of files across multiple processes, and some are getting ahead of the other.
3) It did actually move the file, but the cache or something in memory has not updated, or the full data write has not completed yet before it tried to move the directory. (delayed write)
Yes, you can copy and then delete the old... Read more

A:"Error moving file or folder" -- "directory is not empty"

This is a known issue. It is by design.

As you may know, moving is in its essence an unsafe process. It would be better to use the actual sequence of copy and then delete.

Hey everyone, I have somewhat of a puzzling problem and I'd very much appreciate some leads as to what's causing it.

For the past few months (maybe longer) I've been having spoadic internet connectivity issues. My service is AT&T and I have a 2Wire modem, although I'm not sure that has anything to do with it.

I'm beginning to wonder if it has to do with my browser or a problem with my computer's setup itself. What happens is, multiple times every hour (seemingly at random), no programs can establish a secure internet connection for a couple minutes. Skype calls drop, online games freeze, pages stop loading, that sort of thing.

If I try to open my browser again (Chrome mainly, but it happens on all of them), it tells me that the certificate of the page I'm trying to reach is invalid. My homepage is Google though, so I know that's not true.

I basically have to keep opening and closing my browser until that finally stops coming up and then everything will connect to the internet again.

Considering the large amount of time I spend in Skype calls or Google Plus meetings, this is very infuriating to deal with and nothing I'm finding online about the problem seems relevant. Any ideas?

Okay, a bit complicated here. Long story short (ha) I bestowed ownership and privileges to my specific user, renamed the original "radpppoe.sys" to "raspppoe_orig.sys" and replaced the 1st original with a Vista copy. It was supposed to stop an Ethernet connection error. Idk why it's so hard to set up an Ethernet connection on Win 7; I've done it before so easily on earlier versions, anyway. When I rebooted, Windows would SEEM to start normally until an errors shows "autochk program not found - skipping AUTOCHECK" and it restarts. The Start-up Repair didn't work, I have no restore point to fall back on, and the only other option wouldn't allow JUST my system files to be repaired (twas grayed out; probably cause i don't have a reinstall CD) and I don't want to lose my files. So I tried to delete the "radpppoe.sys" and rename the "radpppoe_orig.sys" back to "radpppoe.sys". I found the codes to do it online but I get the error "Access Denied". I thought that odd since I restored ownership and privileges to ME. I don't know how to change those security settings from the cmd prompt or if it's even feasible.

My last ditch effort COULD be to buy a 1TB drive and back up all my files then reinstall... But ANY alternative will be much appreciated.

If you need more info I may be able to dig a little deeper but I think I gave about all I had.

After booting up my laptop (Dell studio 7 running Windows 7 Premium 64) today, two strange "Command Prompt Error" message appeared. They had something like "Hidden Startup" as the window title (I might not have remembered this completely accurately as I didn't think to take a screenshot or save them at the time).
I haven't seen these messages before, and since rebooting they haven't returned.
Is there a way of viewing them again so I can work out what they are and what might have caused them to appear? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Download and run a full scan with malwarebytes

I was in the process of setting up my XP Professional machine to get a "Command Prompt Here" option according the instructions in http://www.fileformat.info/tip/microsoft/cmd_prompt_here.htm

But instead of selecting "Folder" as the instructions say, I selected "File Folder" by mistake. Now whenever I double click on a folder icon in Windows Explorer, it opens a command window instead of opening the folder. I am not able to remove this action as the remove option is grayed out.

Please help.

I am trying to install CA root certificate on Windows 7, IE 9.
Encounter error: "Untrusted Certificate".  "This certificate cannot be verified up to a trusted certificate authority."
I have tried to install the certificate to Trusted Root Certificate Authorities->local computer and import was successful. BUT on IE->Internet Options->Certificate->Trusted Root Certificate Authorities, I am unable to find this root CA on
the list.
On mmc->Certificates->Trusted Root Certificate Authorities->certificates, I am able to view this root CA.
I then restarted the IE and view the ssl site again but failed too, "Untrusted Certificate".
Anyone, any idea ?

A:Unable to Install Root CA Certificate - Certificate cannot be verified up to a trusted certificate authority.

May the following workarounds work for you:
Workaround 1:
Modify the Windows settings to allow the Update Root Certificate feature to update the root certificates automatically. For details, see the following Microsoft TechNet article:
Certificate Support and Resulting Internet Communication in Windows Server 2008
Workaround 2?
If the Update Root Certificate feature cannot automatically update the root certificates, you may contact the website vender to see if there is a hotfix can fix the issue.

I'm using Windows 8.0

The task should be simple. I don't want to be so engrossed in my work on my computer as to miss picking up my daughter from the school bus. (Phone alarms have let me down in the past with dead bat issues etc.) So I thought I'd simply use the task scheduler
to throw up a photo on the screen in front of reminding me to get off the computer and go to the bus stop.

However, each time the program is run (which is simply C:/alarm.jpg - I even placed it back in root C in an effort to solve the problem - to no avail) It just brings up a "How do you want to open this file?"

Yes I know what you might say - that's a good enough alarm anyway - but that's not the point. I had originally used an mp3 file so the music would play loud (that way even if I'm at the loo or on the phone I would hear it) but I scrapped that and because
it too failed to load and I tried using the picture file instead, thinking surely IT would have no problem loading Windows Photo viewer!!!

When the dialogue opens up ad asks "How do you want to open this file?"
It already has listed at the top the very first option "CONTINUE USING WINDOWS PHOTO VIEWER" so it KNOWS that is the default program  - so why on earth is it asking????

I had the same problem with a music file despite the fact that the default MP3 player is VLC media player.

The arguments and start-in fields are blank.

What is the point of a scheduler that will not do what i... Read more

I am trying to uninstall Yahoo Messenger using Add/Remove Programs. It won't let me and this error message comes up.

Can someone help?

Thanks...and have a great day! Note: Just registered and first time poster.

A:Solved: Error: "Could not open "INSTALL.LOG file"

You have most likely run a Cleaning program that has the option to delete LOG files.
Some LOG files are just that. Files that "log" activity.

But some, like the one you reference, contain information about how to UNinstall that application.

In this case, I would reinstall Yahoo Messenger, and THEN uninstall it.

Comodo Security Solutions is listed as a "Trusted Publisher" in both Word 2007 as well as IE 10 Preview. I was unable to remove it even after reverting to IE8. Running WIN 7_64 and IE10 currently with Kaspersky Internet Security 2013. I was able to remove Comodo Security Solutions from "trusted publishers' in Word 2007.

But the entries returned.

I had installed/uninstalled Comodo Firewall long ago. Did a search for "comodo" in registry. Could not find it. But there is an entry for cmdide.sys under C:/Windows/System 32/Drivers which is supposed to belong to the OS.

How do I get rid of Comodo from "Trusted Publishers" in Internet Explorer and Office 2007?

(Kaspersky moderators say it has nothing to do with KIS 2013)

A:Removing a "Trusted Publisher" from Internet Explorer and Office 2007


Let's check the Registry...

Please download SystemLook:
Save to your Desktop.

Right-click SystemLook.exe, and select: Run as Administrator

Copy all the content inside the following quote box into the main textfield of the program:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Domains
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Domain
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Ranges
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Ranges

Click the Look button to start the scan.

When finished, a notepad window opens with the results of the scan: SystemLook.txt

Please post SystemLook.txt in your next reply

I had some viruses, Adaware'd and Spybot'd my rear off and gave up.

I system restored to 2 days ago.

But, every single site I visit shows up as a Trusted site. I deleted ALL my trusted sites via Internet Explorer Options Trusted sites.



A:EVERY website I visit shows as "TRUSTED SITE"

go to here and download 'Hijack This!'.
First make a folder on your computer in my documents called Hijackthis and then Unzip it to that folder.
Then doubleclick the Hijackthis.exe.
Click the "Scan" button, when the scan is finished the scan button will become "Save Log" click that and save the log.
Go to where you saved the log and click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" then Paste the log back here in a reply.
It will possibly show issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required,
so do NOT fix anything yet.
Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.

I've been using both Firefox and Hotmail for a long time without a problem, but for the past couple of days whenever I try to access Hotmail I get a very long message entitled "Web Site Certified by an Unknown Authority."

It goes on to state "Unable to verify identity of cb1.msn as a trusted site," and says that one reason may be that the site I've accessed is no longer the one it purports to be, but is instead a hacker. (This, after entering "http://www.hotmail.com/")

Furthermore, although the box gives the options "okay," "cancel" and "help" at the bottom of the dialog, clicking on any of them only results in looping back to the same box. Clicking on Back, Home or anything else has no effect-- nothing changes. In order to get rid of the dialog box, I have to close the browser (Firefox) using Ctrl+Alt+Del.

If I then reopen Firefox, everything seems to be okay-- UNLESS I try Hotmail again. Then I'm back to all of the above.

I tried e-mailing the Hotmail Webmaster about this, which I figured would be useless and it was.

I've now notified most of my Hotmail contacts to use my Yahoo! address, but I still have lots of stuff stored in Hotmail, some of which is pretty important.

Anybody know what's up with this? Thanks a bunch!
