Q: Can't update AVG anymore, cmd and regedit don't work anymore, ...

Hi everyone,A few days ago, I suddenly couldn't update AVG anymore. It always gives me an error, telling me the connection with the server failed. I also noticed that I can't connect Limewire (P2P program) anymore and opening movie streams in Windows Media Player doesn't work anymore either.I searched some forums for a solution and I found someone with a similar problem, who also told he couldn't execute the "cmd" and "regedit" commands anymore. I tried it on my own computer and I can't run those things anymore either. When I try executing them, the explorer goes all weird and shuffles the program bars on the task bar.I've manually downloaded the latest updates for AVG, installed them and did a full scan, that didn't find a thing. I also ran AdAware, which said I had some malware, which I removed with it. Then I also ran Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, which found some more malware, so I removed it, rebooted my pc, but the problems still exist...I'm hoping someone can help me with this problem, because it's really anoying...Here's my HijackThis log:Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.2Scan saved at 20:37:26, on 11/05/2009Platform: Windows XP SP3 (WinNT 5.01.2600)MSIE: Internet Explorer v7.00 (7.00.6000.16827)Boot mode: NormalRunning processes:C:\WINDOWS\System32\smss.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\winlogon.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\services.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\lsass.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\Ati2evxx.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exeC:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exeC:\Program Files\Sygate\SPF\smc.exeC:\Program Files\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware\AAWService.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\spoolsv.exeC:\PROGRA~1\AVG\AVG8\avgwdsvc.exeC:\Program Files\WIDCOMM\Bluetooth Software\bin\btwdins.exeC:\Program Files\Cisco Systems\VPN Client\cvpnd.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\inetsrv\inetinfo.exeC:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin\jqs.exeC:\Program Files\Dell\NICCONFIGSVC\NICCONFIGSVC.exeC:\PROGRA~1\AVG\AVG8\avgrsx.exec:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Shared\sqlwriter.exeC:\Program Files\AVG\AVG8\avgcsrvx.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\Ati2evxx.exeC:\Program Files\Apoint\Apoint.exeC:\Program Files\Dell\QuickSet\quickset.exeC:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Acrobat 7.0\Distillr\Acrotray.exeC:\Program Files\ATI Technologies\ATI Control Panel\atiptaxx.exeC:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12\GrooveMonitor.exeC:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin\jusched.exeC:\PROGRA~1\AVG\AVG8\avgtray.exeC:\Program Files\Apoint\Apntex.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\ctfmon.exeC:\Program Files\WIDCOMM\Bluetooth Software\BTTray.exeC:\Program Files\Outlook Express\msimn.exeC:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXEC:\WINDOWS\explorer.exeC:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXEC:\PROGRA~1\AVG\AVG8\avgnsx.exeC:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis\HijackThis.exeR1 -

Preferred Solution: Can't update AVG anymore, cmd and regedit don't work anymore, ...

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I just found this forum by googling a bit around today because I found this topic:http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/206736/run-cmdexe-causes-explorer-to-crash/Lately my mom came bugging me, that her AVGFree 8.5 wont update anymore.Therefore everytime she turns on her Notebook, she get a red cross by Windowstelling here that windows is not safe (because the Virusscanner is not uptodate)and also a message by the AVG Virusscanner that the updates couldn't be downloaded.(She's running WinXP SP3 on a Sony Vaio Notebook).I told her just to wait a bit, because most probably the updateserver is currentlynot available. (I have AVG8.5 too - but couldn't explain why mine is updatingand hers not)Now 3 weeks later she's still bugging me that her AVG is not updating, so I sit a bit downto have a closer look. I uninstalled AVG8.5, reboot, download the latest version, install it,reboot again - but it still can't download the updates...Next I wanted to ping the updateserver and went to START - RUN and wanted torun CMD, but noticed that this makes the desktop go away for a few seconds(no Console appearing, instead ALL Icons disappear from the desktop including the Taskbar). I never saw that before and my first thought was that she seriously muckedup something...

Hello, I have a problem that I'm trying to fix...since 1 month. My first language is french so I decided to post my question on a French Tech Forum and nobody can help me... if you want to take a look what they ask me to do :

Probleme de MaJ avec Win 7 ??? - MicroClick-Qu?bec.ca

I attached a JPG and you can see which last update that is installed. Suddenly stop after December 16 ?!

I check this forum and try this :

For 64-bit Windows, the second line differs due to the location of the DLL file:
net stop wuauserv
regsvr32 %windir%\syswow64\wups2.dll
net start wuauserv

That didnt work.

I want to tell you guys that I have some BSOD sometime but I have BSOD before my Windows Update problem. We will try to fix my Windows Update problem and after we will try to fix the BSOD

I don't know where to start with you guys lol..

I have Win 7 Pro 64 bits, 8 gig RAM...

In my task bar I have the little flag with an "red x" on it... saying, I will try to translate from french to english "Windows could not search for automatic update (important)"

Thank you very very much for help !

I update (means clean install) Vista Business 32 bit to 64 bit and after that the network connection won't work anymore. Problem is that vista won't get the IP-address from DHCP (tried in small office network with some cheap Zyxel and big corporate network with expensive stuff) and said that the connection is limited and network is unidentified. I try to solve problem with google and already try some regedit things, update vista with SP2, update network controller driver and try to limit speed & duplex to 100 Mbps and 10 Mbps but non of those works. This forum is my last hope, if someone have any clues, please tell to me.

Checked also with linux and the computer gets the IP. So there have to be some problems with this Vista Business 64 bit.

After downloading the avg 9 installer and installing it. AVG asked for computer reboot so I said yes and now when my computer boots the desktop opens but then nothing happens the start menu and that whole bar at the bottom of the screen won't load and clicking or opposite clicking on any desktop icons just freezes the mouse.
Also Windows Task Manager won't open.
Please some one help.
Also I get a program terminated error about not reading memory, right at the windows welcome screen to which I tried pressing canel and Ok, neither worked.

P.S. by booting into safe mod and disabling most things in the "msconfig" I was able to get windows tool bar to load, but clicking on anything in the tool bar once again freezes the mouse, and I can't get Task manager to open.

some hours ago, I tried to run regedit as usual by using "Start | Run", but it said:
regedit.exe - Unable To Locate Component
This application has failed to start because clb.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix the problem.
​I checked my running processes as well as restarted the PC. clb.dll was located at SysWOW64 (being a 32-bit dll, obviously) but not at System32 (where only 64-bit-files are stored), copying it to System32 didn't change anything.
After a while of searching the inet in vain I realized I hadn't tried to start regedit.exe or regedt32.exe in SysWOW64 (but regedt32.exe in System32, which gives the error), and surprisingly, it worked.

Still the problem remains: I can't start it using "Run" anymore (which worked since 18.05.2005), and I didn't change anything big but uninstalled WindowBlinds (a windows skinning software which worked quite well for many months). Could WindowBlinds be the reason, and if so, how? Moreover, will I experience further problems?
(msconfig still works normally and can be started by "Run"; often, this isn't possible when encountering the regedit clb.dll error)

I would appreciate any help, thank you in advance!

Edit: It is a serious problem, please read my next post.

A:After Windows 7 update bluetooth doesn't work anymore.

Eventually Fujitsu went to service as it stopped booting even from CD and USB. Had MOBO replaced. Came back yesterday had win 7 installed. Everything was fine till I installed Nokia Ovi and tried to use Bluetooth. Then the same hapenned - first USB unknown device than no boot at all. I am desperate - I dont believe this is hardware (2 mobos?) but I can't access the machine at all. If this was software it should boot from Win 7 DVD - but it hangs displaying 'starting windows'. I can access BIOS setup and I can boot only some DOS emergency boot CD allowing me to copy or erase whole disc, but I can't reinstall OS. Please help!

Hello,I was an idiot and accidentally clicked on an email link of an email I was trying to delete (knew it was a "bad" email). It then tried to open my Adobe Acrobat and I shut off the wireless connection after about 10 seconds, but it was too late, and I can no longer access Windows Update page (it just tells me IE cannot display this webpage). I also noticed that I can no longer hibernate my computer anymore. Windows Defender told me that something was trying to install and I denied permission to it. I ran Malwarebytes 1.45 with the latest updates and it found a few things which it deleted, but still can't access Windows Update. I also tried the http://safety.live.com (onecare) from microsoft and did the full system scan with that and it found 9 issues, but only fixed 2. It didn't actually tell me what those other issues were, so I couldn't manually do anything about them. Every once in a while, my expired (in Dec2009) Norton Anti-Virus will tell me I have a trojan and denies access to file "overlay.xul". I have also tried several other scanners to little or no effect (trendmicro's online scanner and hitmanpro3.5).I have hijack this installed, but have not ran it as of yet as I wouldn't be able to make heads or tails of the report anyway. I'm hoping someone here would be able to help me.Thanks in advance.

Hi ALT_EST,Let's first start with clearing out some temp files using TFC by Old Timer which you can find here along with instructions on how to use it. Just make sure you close and save any work before you run it as it probably will require a reboot.Please download and scan with SUPERAntiSpyware FreeDouble-click SUPERAntiSypware.exe and use the default settings for installation.An icon will be created on your desktop. Double-click that icon to launch the program.If it will not start, go to Start > All Prgrams > SUPERAntiSpyware and click on Alternate Start.If asked to update the program definitions, click "Yes". If not, update the definitions before scanning by selecting "Check for Updates". (If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here. Double-click on the hyperlink for Download Installer and save SASDEFINITIONS.EXE to your desktop. Then double-click on SASDEFINITIONS.EXE to install the definitions.)In the Main Menu, click the Preferences... button.Click the "General and Startup" tab, and under Start-up Options, make sure "Start SUPERAntiSpyware when Windows starts" box is unchecked.Click the "Scanning Control" tab, and under Scanner Options, make sure the following are checked (leave all others unchecked):Close browsers before scanning.Scan for tracking cookies.Terminate memory threats before quarantining.Click the "Close" button to leave the co...

I bought my Satellite Z930 in August and installed 2GB extra RAM in it. Worked fine, the Ultrabook detected it and had total 6GB of RAM.
Yesterday I stopped ignoring these Toshiba Tempro messages and installed the suggested BIOS Update to Bios 2.20 (don't know which version it was before). Now I have several problems:

*First one*, my Ultrabook doesn't start anymore with the extra RAM. I press the power button, then the power LED starts blinking: 2 times yellow, 1 time orange in loop. The screen stays black and the CPU fan raises to maximum level..Only when I remove the extra RAM, then it starts.

*Second problem*, without my extra RAM it starts, but sometimes with the CPU fan at maximum level. So i have to restart that it stops.

*Third problem*, Windows only detects 2GB of RAM. I have now no extra RAM istalled, so it should detect 4GB of RAM, like when I bought it. Now there are only 2GB...

So is this what happens when I install suggested updates? -.-
So what can I do now? At least I want my preinstalled 4GB of RAm back. Is there any BIOS downgrade, or something similar to revert the changes?

A:Satellite Z930 - after BIOS Update, Extra RAM doesn't work anymore

OK, solved the problem. I found a BIOS downgrade to 2.1 at this page: http://www.blog-drivers.com/2012/07/toshiba-portege-z930-notebook-drivers.html
Now I have my 6GB back :)

My son has a Fujitsu Amilo laptop with a built in web cam.
Recently (much like my own cam on my Acer) it's just stopped working for no apparent reason.

The message he gets is that it can't connect.

Hope someone has a bright idea as I had no reply to my similar query. Now neither of us has a webcam.

Hey guys,

Sometimes I get audio problems where I cannot hear internet sound but can hear other sounds. When this happens the Device Volume under the volume tab of the Sounds and Audio Devices Properties window is grayed out. I usually just run Mats_Run.AudioPlayback (mr. fix it) and it fixes everything in 30 seconds and tells me the errors that occurred are because sound device was turned off, and because sound was set to really low level, and probably another thing too.

However, now when I try and run it it says "Mr. Fix it cannot continue because an error has occurred", and right underneath it it says,"the troubleshooter does not apply to this computer,". Is there a file that it cannot find perhaps? Does anyone know how Mats.AudioPlayback miracle fix it works? What file might be corrupt? Also sometimes some files will tell me to check if I have the proper authorization to run a program... WTF is going on? Please help someone.

The mats audio issue happend after I removed malware from my computer and and a rootkit. I removed it with malwarebytes and then with combofix. I can tell if there is a virus because I can sense when my computer is running 99.0 percent instead of 100%. Now it runs fast as hell and no viruses. Can someone tell me how to trouble shoot it with advanced techniques?

A:Mr. Fix it doesn't work anymore!

Just for future reference, Combofix should only be used under the direct supervision of one of Malware Removal Team members. Using this tool incorrectly can result in more problems than what you started out with.

Have you looked in the Device Manager to see if there are any driver problems?

Try running chkdsk c: /p

My Internet explorer 6 wont work any more. Instead whenever I try to fire it up it comes back with an error message "the application failed to initialize properly(0xc0000005).Click on OK to terminate the application" If I start in safe mode it works ok. I reinstalled windows 2000 and it rolls back to IE5 which will work ok. As soon as I reinstall IE6 up comes the error message again. A trawl through the net shows that the error message is not confined to problems with IE6 but can affect other packages. Can anyone help?

Hello guys,

I'm coming here after a while of looking around for a more feasible solution, and after talking to an M$ tech. Apparently a retail key can only be installed a number of 3 times, even if it's on the same computer.

Here's what's going on:

I have bought an OEM copy for my desktop, which had the Retail copy already installed and activated, and changed the product key on the desktop to have it activated on the OEM key, so this way I'd be sure I can use the retail on my laptop, on which I recently added the Crucial M4 SSD. A month later, after being sure that Windows works without issues, I decided to activate it, that was today. Issue: I can't use my activation key that came with the Windows Pro Retail that I bought in 2009, because, supposedly, it's been installed on 3 different computers, which is simply untrue. The M$ tech told me that the phone activation would work, but it was not the case. . If useful, the same tech told me that he couldn't activate it for me because "it had been used on 3 computers".

I have rearmed the evaluation period for the time being, but I do not want to use any illegal means of activating Windows. What I know is that I will never touch a retail version of Windows again, it is just an overpriced piece of garbage, but I am not willing to pay for a new key either. Right now I just feel like M$ just stole nearly $350 from me.

If you guys have any input to help me with this, so that I could reactivate Windows without the need t... Read more

A:Activation key does not work anymore

Hello Sbrideau,

A product key number can only be activated on 3 computers at the same time if it is one that came with a retail Family Pack copy of Windows 7.

Otherwise, you can only have a retail product key number activated on only 1 computer at a time, with it uninstalled or removed from any other computer it was activated on first. There is not a limit of how many times you are able to activate it as long as it removed from any other installation first, so I have no idea where the operator got the 3 limit from. With that said, you may have to do a phone activation if you have activated it often in a short period.

Either something is missing, or the MS activation operator misunderstood you. You should be able to activate it over the phone. Try doing the phone activation again and wait for a operator if available.

Hope this helps,

Hello everyone.
Recently, my microphone (which is attached to my headset) stopped working.

I have this headset:

I have this motherboard:

A few days ago, I updated to windows 7 64 bit. I installed new drivers when I did that, including audio drivers. The next day or so, I noticed my mic wasn't working.

I had gotten the new drivers from the Asus website (the motherboard manufacturer), and they were just an updated version of the old ones I had.
However, now, I am getting no input on my mic whatsoever. It recognizes that they are plugged in, but no sound goes through (my friends don't hear anything I'm saying). It's not a volume issue: no words are being transmitted whatsoever.

It could be coincidence - the headphone might have finally just broke on me, but I'm suspicious. I think the driver may have something to do with it. I tried reinstalling the drivers, but that did not do anything, I still have the same issue.

The driver is called "VIA HD Audio Deck." Like I said, when I plug it in, it recognizes the mic has been plugged in, but no sound is transmitted.

Do you guys think my mic is broken, and I should start shopping for a new one, or is it a driver problem? If so... what on earth should I do to try and fix it?

PS: Yes, the headphones still work, just not the attached mic.

A:Headphone mic will not work anymore :(

Is what ever software you're using set up to use the mic correctly? Some software you need to manually select where the mic is in the audio options.

For some reason my digital camera has developed a weird problem.
It is only allowing me to take 1 picture before telling me that the batteries need replacing.
I have changed the batteries, tried rechargeable, ordinary duracells, same problem.
I have owned and used this camera for the past couple of years with no problems at all, the batteries lasted ages.
Anyone have any ideas before I commend the damned thing to the dustbin?
It's a Canon Powershot A40
I just tried taking out the memory card and now it wont even switch on.
Memory card put back in camera and still no life at all from the camera.

A:why won't my camera work anymore?

The contacts could be corroded. Clean the contacts inside the battery door and try to get inside with a pencil eraser and clean the contacts inside.

If that doesn&#8217;t help I would glue some fine sandpaper or emery cloth to the tip of the eraser and try that before discarding the camera.

When I open the theme screen, it shows "This page is unavailable on this Windows edition", the themes worked fine to me before this happened. Now my desktop theme is the basic theme from Win7 and my desktop background too. I don't know what happened, I'm very sorry, this is so frustrating. If you can help me, I'll be very grateful.
Additional note: My pc is now Windows 7 Starter, it was Windows 7 Starter when I bought it. I lent it to a friend of mine, and he turned my pc from Win7 Starter to Win7 Home Basic, I don't know how, too. But since I fixed some errors with the Command Prompt, my pc returned to what it was (Windows 7 Starter).

Hi all;
I am going to assume that everyone is having trouble with floppy diskettes.
They used to work reliably (even from one machine to another), but since they have been more or less phased out I am unable to get any of them to work on any machine.

I have several 1.44M diskettes which I have attempted to format as system start-up disks so that I can run Hard Drive Mechanic.
I have tried all 3 diskettes that I have, and none of them will fomat.
If I take them to another machine, same thing.

It appears as though the manufacturers of floppy drives have colluded with the manufacturers of floppy diskettes to create a better market for CD devices.
Problem is, I am finding it rather bothersome to create bootable CD's.
The only way seems to be that you must first have a boot image on a 3.5" floppy! So how can I make a bootable CD when I can't get the image?

I have a USB flash drive and am trying to make it bootable, but not sure that my bios will allow booting from it.

The machine I want to work with is an older Dell Precision 330 wih bios version A09. I have not found an upgrade for that bios on Dell's site, but have not yet looked at the bios home site.

Thanks for any help/advice.


A:Why don't floppies work anymore?

No real problems here. But remember, floppy disks have a limited shelf life. If you are trying to use old floppy discs, they may be unreadable. This is because the ferrous oxide coating eventually falls off over time.

I have yet to run accoss a BIOS that won't let you use a floppy. Floppies are part of the core computing architecture dating back to the early days of computing.

In your case, you are using a USB floppy. This is not the same as a real floppy.
Your BIOS may not let you boot from a USB device depending how old your computer is.

If you click on a hyperlink in a web page and only a blank window appears,

1. Go to Start / Run
2. Then enter regsvr32 urlmon.dll

4. If that single change does not resolve the problem, repeat the process by running regsrv32 with the following dll files.

* Shdocvw.dll
* Msjava.dll
* Actxprxy.dll
* Oleaut32.dll
* Mshtml.dll
* Browseui.dll
* Shell32.dll (Windows XP and Windows 2000 only)
Hyperlinks in messages stop working (Outlook Express )

If clicking a hyperlink in Outlook Express appears to do nothing at all, there are likely one or more registered file associations that are configured incorrectly. To repair the associations:

1. Open My Computer and click Folder Options on the Tools menu.
2. Click the File Types tab.
3. Select URL:Hypertext Transfer Protocol in the list of registered file types.

For about one - three weeks, my internet hasn't been working anymore ever since I clicked on this link in MSN. It was one of those "Are these your pics?" links with my email address attached to the link, so naturally I thought it was really my friend sending the link. The link took me to this blank website that wanted me to download a file. I went through the entire process and next thing I know my Anti-Virus program went off saying it was a Trojan Horse. I didn't know what was going on at first so I ignored it. The Trojan Horse sent the same link to all of my contacts who were online at the time.

Now ever since my internet only work for around five minutes and it brings up the "Internet Explorer Cannot Display This Page." Everytime I restart the computer, the internet works again. Then it repeats the process. My friend told me to do a system restore, which I did. But I'm not sure that it did very much to help my computer. I did a virus scan on my computer (for the local disk)last night and it found 17 infected files. I moved them all to the virus chest but the internet still won't work.

I use Windows XP and Avast! Anti-Virus.

All of a sudden certain dos programs that I've used in Windows XP before (without any trouble) won't work anymore. If I try to execute these dos programs the screen just flashes briefly and I'm right back at my desktop.
I haven't installed ANY new sofware or drivers of ANY kind. Regardless of the above fact I tried a system restore to a previous date when the dos programs still worked, without any success.

I rebooted the machine and tried safe mode, uhm, all of a sudden the programs work! Logic tells me that a driver or software change might cause the problem, BUT!: as I've mentioned above I haven't installed ANYthing new and even tried a system restore without any success. No one else has access to the computer, so no one else could have installed drivers or software.

I then tried to change the compatibility settings and display settings
(even though I never had to change any settings before for the dos programs to work).

It started with Guru.com so I had them resend my password, still just looped back when I input it. After that one it happened on my email and then my bank account. I know my accounts work as if I check it from someone elses pc I have no problem. Thank you in advance for anyone who can help me.

Unfortunately, this sounds a lot like a spyware/virus issue to me. It is especially scary that its going on with your bank account. Check out this thread: Am I Infected? What Do I Do?Perhaps try a scan and see what happens, try one of the following:http://www.pandasecurity.com/homeusers/solutions/activescan/http://www.bitdefender.com/scan8/ie.htmlhttp://support.f-secure.com/enu/home/ols.shtml

Once upon a time my two USB ports worked fine... but not anymore.

A few deatails quickly: I have an AMD Athlon 800 MHz PC, 512 Mb Ram, Soundblaster, N-Videa G Force 2, modem, Saitek X35 joystick and use Windows 98.

I use the USB ports for my joystick and my Palm Pilot cradle which allows me to back up the data from my handheld to the PC. About a month ago neither device was recognised for some reason. Under Settings it tells me that the devices work properly. What's going on? I've not installed any new hardware, only a couple of games.

Also, I don't know if this is related but my computer sometimes reboots for no apparent reason. Sometimes Windows won't even load but says 'Windows Protection Error...'

I really need your help, peeps!

I dont know what is up with my CD burner but it stopped working awhile ago. It seems like it is unable to recognize CD's. I am not sure if a setting got changed or if it just broke somehow. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks so much!

I'm having problems getting my Usb MIDI to work in my music software. It used to work, but one day it just magically stopped working. I was about to make a dumb mistake and buy a new $60 Usb MIDI cable, but then I checked in device manager and I noticed that Windows WAS recognizing the Usb MIDI cable. It even said "This device is working properly." The MIDI Input light on the cable blinks when I press the keyboard's(piano) keys when I first plug it in, then stops after a while. It's supposed to be plug-n-play. When I first got it, no driver download was needed. I plugged it in, and it worked. I was thinking it may need a driver update? Or maybe a new driver? Whatever it is, please help. What do I do? Things you need to know:

Computer: Windows 7
Music Software: Mixcraft Pro Studio 5
MIDI Controller: Casio Privia PX-120 88 Key Digital Piano

Device Manager:

USB Midi Manufacturer: (Generic USB Audio)
Device Status: This device is working properly.
Driver Provider: Microsoft
Driver Date: 7/13/2009
Driver Version: 6.1.7600.16385
Digital Signer: Microsoft Windows

Please help! Thanks!It's frustrating because it used to work but now it doesn't! I greatly appreciate it!
