Error upon Startup, "Error in C:\Users\....\actxprxy1.dll

Q: Error upon Startup, "Error in C:\Users\....\actxprxy1.dll

Hello,

I have read a lot of helpful information on this site, so for that I want to say thanks!

I am struggling to fix the error that I get upon startup on my Toshiba Satellite L655 which Reads"

RunDLL
Error in C:\Users\(my name)\AppData\Roaming\actxprxy1.dll
Missing entry:Igwq

I just realized that this isn't referencing actxprxy.dll - it has a "1" stuck in there which is raising a red flag for me and may be why all my google searches come up empty.

I have updated windows, which I didn't update currently because I keep it up to date, I have run Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool which found nothing, I have run Malwarebytes which found nothing I have of course run my current anti-virus, malware, registry cleaner software and it says all is good too. Nothing is running poorly on my computer but I am starting to think that there was something that happened and my computer was able to remove it but maybe not all of it or there are damaged files from it? I am not super computer saavy but I do pretty well and can definately can follow good directions. I would really appreciate any help with this that anyone can provide!

Thanks,
Gaby

Preferred Solution: Error upon Startup, "Error in C:\Users\....\actxprxy1.dll

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.)

as described in the title when i boot my laptop: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834117780R
i get the "disk read error -> press cntrl alt del to restart" message. I then tried to access the backup partition through f10 only to run into this error "status : 0xc00000e9 Info : an unexpected I/O error has occurred" it seems that it cant communicate with my hard drive.

I read a few other forum posts but didnt see anyone have the 0xc00000e9 error also. Bios boot priorities are in order if that matters.

Is there a fix without having to replace the entire HD and buy a new vista installation(preinstalled w/ no disc in the box).

Im very reluctant to take it to a service center as i can very likely fix it myself (with the help of the friendly people here of course), only problem is im having a little trouble..finding.. my HD in this damn notebook.. heh, ill figure that part out. new to notebook repair.

Thanks in advance. Danny

edit: found the HD, doesnt look like it even uses a cable, just plugs right into what i assume is the mb. dont know if that helps just supplying what i can.

Today I got my new laptop and decided to dual boot Ubuntu and Windows 7 on it. After several hours of partitioning and researching, I ran into many issues. Eventually I decided to boot Ubuntu from a USB drive, open up Gparted, and delete any and all Linux partitions while expanding the size of the Windows partition back to normal.

Unfortunately, in the process, I must have made an error, because now upon startup I get the "bootmgr is missing" error. I don't have a recovery CD nor does my laptop have a CD drive, so that's out of the question, but I know for a fact my Hard Drive has a recovery partition on it. I want to restore my computer back to normal, keeping my old files if necessary. However, since I just got the computer today, I clearly don't have anything on there I can't afford to lose, so if I must do a factory reset I will.

Hello,

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

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\.

I just upgraded from Vista Home Premium to Win7 professional x64 hoping to fix the above mentioned problem. After a complete re-install Im getting the same errors.

Im not sure of the proper terminology here, but during startup the computer does a scan of all hardware and "Volume 0" has a "failed" message.

The odd thing is that sometimes after a few restarts and pointless boot menu visits the computer starts up fine.

I tried windows repair feature by booting from the disk, but when I get to the window where i select the operating system to repair, its empty. Drive C, where the operating system is, is not showing.

I have a feeling that the hard drive itself has gone bad and is very unstable. Please let me know if I'm missing something or we just need to get a new HD.

Thank you

A:Win7 pro startup error "Boot MGR missing"/"Operating System Not Found

What type of hdd do you have. For example if you have a Seagate drive, there is software you can run to do a diagonostic on the hdd before the operating system boots.
This would be a good idea, especially if you were having same issues when Vista Home Premium was installed first.

Do you have more than one hdd installed. If yes, make sure in BIOS settings, the proper drive is selected for First Boot. And better yet make sure its the only drive attached when booting.

Greetings,

I realize that I posted this thread previously, but I see that I had erroneously created it in the inappropriate forum (Windows Vista). However, the user "Macboatmaster" was kind and patient enough to provide me with assistance there, though I am still waiting on his following procedures.

In the meantime, as this is the Windows XP forum (my operating system is Windows XP), I wanted to formally post my dilemma here as well, as I thought that I may acquire more feedback. Here is the problem that I am facing, along with what Macboatmaster already suggested:

-I recently encountered some trouble on my pc (a BENQ) with respect to starting it up. During a recent system restore, a power failure occurred, and ever since I attempted to boot the computer, I receive the following error just before the desktop appears:

"Explorer.EXE - Unable To Locate Component: This application has failed to start because WININET.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix the problem."

This error prevents me from accessing anything on my desktop (i.e. task bar, icons, etc.) - only the desktop background appears, and all that I have access to is the Task Manager (Control+Alt+Delete). Control+Escape does not allow me to have access to the Start menu. I receive the same error just before I get into the cmd prompt, but it appears that I am still able to use it.

Do you have a recovery restore install disc or partition?
You can try doing a repair or system file check...
Scan For Missing/Corrupt System Files...

Windows XP comes with a wonderful tool called System File Checker (SFC)
Itscans and verifies the versions of all protected system files after you restart your computer...
To Do This:
Click Start menu, and then click the Run icon.
In the small box that Opens, type the three letters: cmd then click the OK button.
In the command prompt window that just opened (a black background and white text), type the following command:
SFC /scannow
And then click OK
You must be logged on as a member of the Administrators group to run SFC..
You will need your Windows XP CD during this procedure if SFC needs to get an original file. Please remember that Windows XP can have multiple instances of a .DLL file and remember which version is for which program.
Notes....
I have been asked if it is possible to have a "progress meter" show when SFC runs... This is the registry hack you need. PLEASE do not go messing with your registry if you do NOT know what you are doing!
System Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]

Hello there and welcome to the forums Doomdaddy!

If you want to be absolutely sure whether your drive is gutted/or still recoverable, try and pull it out of the laptop and place it into an external USB caddy/enclosure, and plug it into a working system to see whether the system can detect it or not...

You can also try to reseat the the drive in the laptop by taking it out and putting it back in again after a cold shutdown..

Hello,

I've been having this nasty problem since yesterday. I have no knowledge of viruses whatsoever so I am at a complete loss as to what to do.

I'm using a 7-year-old laptop and Windows XP. At a guess, the problem comes from my friend's USB. This is what happened: I inserted the USB and noticed a RECYCLER and some Shorcut to (1) etc. viruses. I thought this wasn't serious so I ignored it. An hour or two after that my Internet connection crashed (I don't know if it has anything to do with the virus). By checking randomly, I found out that gpedit.msc and my Antivir setup file also refused to run.

I then shut down my computer and have been unable to boot ever since. Every time I try to start up, I am faced with a dozen of "out of memory" pop-ups, all of them with "xxx" in their title bar. I tried closing them all, but new ones kept springing up. I opened Task Manager and found at least 20 processes named FONTS.EXE. I guess this was what caused the "out of memory" error, so I tried to end those processes, but they kept re-appearing over and over again.

The taskbar and the desktop icons won't show up. The screen is blank - there's just my wallpaper background, my cursor and the nasty error pop-ups. I can't run any virus check or do anything else.

I've also tried rebooting in Safe Mode, but it took me to the blue screen of death.

Two days ago, I was in the process of verifying Windows 7 (because I got the "windows 7 is not genuine" message) and then when I restarted as I was asked, that message came up and I haven't been able to get into the computer since.

I have tried booting directly from a Windows 7 disk, and the computer skips past it and returns to the message. I've tried putting a recovery .iso on a flashdrive and booting from that, and still, nothing. It will not boot from anything whatsoever, no matter what I put first, disable, enable, etc in the setup thing.

I have no idea what to do at this point, because I can't get into the computer for the life of me, and I can't lose the files I have on there. Not again. This computer was a gift from my grandparents, and not even three months later, I've somehow effed it up.

Please, if you could offer any advice or solutions to this, it'd be greatly appreciated. If there's any buttons I can press to manually start from the CD or flashdrive, that'd be helpful, too, considering it refuses to follow the boot sequence I've set up (CD/DVD > USB Flashdrive > Internal HDD...

but somehow it LUbuntu has no problem booting when i select to boot from it instead of windows 7
all of my data MUST be intact because otherwise i wouldn't be able to boot at all. and i can see all the files on my drive just fine

When I tried to boot in safe mode. it stopped after a few system files were loaded then went to startup repair. I dont remember the file it stopped at.

Hello,

I am in quite a dilemma with my current computer. I have recently purchased a new computer chassis which I transferred all my components to with no new additions.

On startup I was being sent to the Marvell Adapter 98xx which I had never encountered when my components were in my original case. The adapter was saying:

Virtual Drives: None Detected!

Physical Drives: Patriot Inferno SSD (which already has windows installed on it)
Western Digital HDD

It would then proceed to another black screen saying please select proper boot device etc etc.

I have since tried all the different SATA configurations, IDE, AHCI, and RAID. I tried all of these with the Marvell Adapter both on and off. I have tried all of the modes with both drives in each combination possible (SSD in 6Gb port/HDD in 3Gb port , SSD in 3Gb port/HDD in 6Gb port, SSD & HDD in 3Gb port, and the original SSD & HDD in 6Gb port)

I have reset the CMOS in a hope that It may resolve the issue, I have also pressed F8 (boot menu) and selected the SSD directly for startup considering it has windows installed on it.

Originally when the issue started I was able to enter the Marvell adapter and I created a virtual drive with both of my drives. This still resulted in me being sent to the "Please select proper boot device screen" and so I deleted that virtual drive.

In conclusion I have run out of ideas and I am stumped as to what I should do (as I have found similar sce... Read more

A:Startup error "Please select proper boot device"

Hey again to anyone viewing the thread. I have found out what the issue / resolution was.

In the end I just booted with the windows 7 disk in the dvd drive which enabled me to get past the error and into system repair. The issue in the end was a corrupt MBR section in the 1TB HDD. The system repair removed the corruption and removed the partition.

After that I was able to start up my computer like usual but the HDD had lost its info. Luckily with the program "EASEUS partition recovery" I was able to retrieve the lost data that was originally on my drive as system repair only removed the data instead of deleting it.

Thanks to anyone that showed interest in my thread.

I'm currently using TeamViewer 10, though this happened with TeamViewer 9 too.
This error message pops up appears when I log into Windows 7, but not does appear again after hitting OK.
This is still problematic because TeamViewer does not start until the error is clicked, so I cannot remotely restart my computer.

I've attached a jpg with the error, which reads:

"TeamViwer: TeamViewer.exe - Bad Image

C:\Windows\SysWOW64\api-ms-win-downlevel-shell32-l1-1-0.dll is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error. Try installing the program again using the original installation media or contact your system administrator or the software vendor for support."

I have tried uninstalling/reinstalling TeamViewer, but it does not resolve the issue.

Thanks for your help!

Hello,

I'm unable to boot into Windows after I selected "normal startup" in msconfig and attempted to reboot. Here's the error message:

>Info: The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible.

After reviewing some threads in this forum, I can't find a solution. For context and some things that I have tried to do so far to troubleshoot:

A) Windows 7 is installed on my HDD, which is drive F:
B) With a recovery disk, I am able to try startup repair, however, it fails (I have tried multiple times in a row)
C) I am able to get into command prompt.
D) My working guess right now about what is causing the issue is that after selecting "normal startup" in msconfig (I changed it from selective startup, simply because I was curious about what "normal" meant and how my computer would run... which is to say, almost not at all) my computer is trying to boot from the c:\ drive instead of f:\.

I just built a new pc two days ago and have noticed every single time on startup I receive the "Error: Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might have caused the issue after you install Windows Updates" error, the keyboard doesn't turn on during boot so I can't access the bios despite having changed the boot order to specifically boot usb before anything else, now all I can do when I see the message is turn the pc off again, unplug all the sata cables, which then allows the keyboard to start working straight away some how, then once I've accessed the bios I just turn it off again, plug the sata cables back in and the error just disappears, only reappearing when I next boot

Hi,

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.

I was recently running a regular scan on my computer with my anti malware program, when the program was done scanning it restarted my computer to finish the removal of malware. Upon restart of my computer I received an error that said "No boot device found. Please press any key to reboot your computer" I pressed a key and it brought me to another black screen that said "scanning media", I have now seen this screen enough that after a few seconds and only for a few milliseconds text beside it says [failed] then it disappears, seconds after that it brings me back to the first screen.
I have been unable to return to my computers login screen and have contacted dell and they have told me I must buy a plan for them to help me, which was quiet pricey, I plan to bring my computer in to Memory Express but they also charge a pricey amount so any fix would be much appreciated.

Yesterday, our computer around 6PM got a fake antivirus virus that popped up and installed automatically. I went and removed it off my computer. That one was called "Malware Doctor". Later, about 2 hours later, I got another one that popped up on my task bar called "Antivirus 2010". That one didnt install and I removed it. Today i started up our computer, and I got Antivirus 2010 again. I exited out of it, and removed it. Then I could not access the internet via Google Chrome, so i tried AOL. AOL worked, but it was freezing as always. I decided to restart my modem and my computer.

When I turned it on, It would go past the XP screen and continuously reboot. I then hit F8 many times, and got the menu(not sure what its called) and make it so it would not auto-reboot on system failure. Booting into safe mode doesnt work, or the other start options. I am using Ubuntu 10.04 LTS to access the internet/techguy.

Hi, BigFeat, and welcome to the forums.

Before I suggest something as drastic as back up your files and format and reinstall, I want to see if anyone else has a solution to this problem that is non destructive.

However, I have a feeling this will happen again - unless, of course, there was a power failure during the night...which has just gotten me thinking.

Since you can use the command prompt, re-initiate the installation via the command prompt and see if it will let you start / pick up / finish from before....

I do not have the infected computer at my access right now (brother in law's computer) so I have not been able to see exactly what is going on, so this is simply a general question post for now:

At startup, his Windows XP system shows an error that reads something similar to "lsass.exe operation failed - operation was unsuccessful". I tried to get him to boot into safe mode but somehow the same error appeared. From what I gather from a little research this seems to be some sort of registry problem. I am going over to his home tomorrow (for some reason everyone thinks I am the computer genious of the family). Any idea on what I am getting into in trying to get his system back on track?

Hi and welcome to TSF.

It looks like you have also uninstalled Java as well which may well be needed in order to uninstall the other program written in Java. You can try using Revo Uninstaller (free version is at the bottom of the page) to remove the program.

When it has been successfully removed, I'd make sure that you have the latest Java installed on your machine.

Hello,

Customer Toshiba Laptop, Win7 Home Pre, lots of add ons, toolbars, PCFix Speed, Reg Optimizer Pro, etc. Removed with REVO, Cleaned up startup with CCleaner, and MSCONFIG.

Ran Malwarebytes and MWAV (Microworld stand alone anti-virus tool.) Reset all 3 browsers (IE11, Chrome, Firefox30) Reboot. All of the browsers open up to w w w-search .net > Tuvaro. Verified proxy in internet settings was clear and set to "automatically detect" and also without auto detect. (Proxy was set to 55150?) Reset each browser homepage but still goes to w w w-search .net.

Ran Combo-Fix 2x and the internet browser problem is fixed.

Now whenever the system boots up it shows two separate error messages box with RunDLL in the upper left corner and states
"There was a problem starting C:\Progra~!\common~1\System\Sysmenu.dll" The Specified module could not be found."

C:\Program Files\Common Files\System - no Sysmenu.dll here
C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\System - no Sysmenu.dll here

I have re-run Malwarebytes and it did not find anything.

Looking in MSCONFIG and the startup section in CCleaner I do not see any item pointing to either of the locations - C:\Program Files\Common Files\System - in either program.

Is there any other load point that could be calling for this?
