Repeating Error: "Bad Image.... Loaded.dll file contains an error"

Q: Repeating Error: "Bad Image.... Loaded.dll file contains an error"

For about a week now, I haven't been able to open/run any programs on my Windows 7 laptop. Here is the timeline to the best of my memory:

- 6/11 (about): downloaded driver to fix scroll/touchpad that wasn't scrolling
- 6/20 (about): successfully replaced cpu fan
- "Bad Image - ...Loader.dll file missing" began appearing over and over
- All files/programs/shortcuts don't open. Just get same dll error
- 6/28: noticed "Windows 7 Build 7600, This copy of Windows is not genuine"
- Found 6-8 highly suspicious programs in Uninstall Programs (crossbrowser, cinestudio, speedsearch are the only ones I remember). We're most likely downloaded with touchpad driver. When I noticed the programs, I clicked Uninstall on all, but they were not uninstalled, but only removed from the list in Uninstall Programs.

I would greatly appreciate any help.

(Also, I tried sfc /scannow. That found and fixed two problems. But the problem persists. I then tried a system restore. Only one previous restore date was shown as an option. When I tried to restore it, it was unsuccessful)

Every time I start and use Vista native speech recognition component I get the following error:

---------------------------
Error Window Title:
MS:SpeachUXMainNotifier: sapisvr.exe - Bad Image

Error message:
c:\Windows\System32\Speech\SpeechUX\SpeechUXPS.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.
----------------------------

Please help. I have RSI and I need to make the speech module working without giving me this error every 5 minutes. I seems to be always at start-up of the module. Also every time when you start a notepad-like program with some text entry. And any time you switch between programs. It make the speech recognition completely unusable.
1.
I tried windows restore to go back to older image and activating the speech module one more time. It did not help.

2.
The DLL file is "protected" and can not be "replaced" by a DLL taken from another Vista install. I can not reinstall whole vista because of this. Is there a easy-fix solution ? The files have same size in kbs so my-install file does not seem corrupted in any way.

Please help ....

I keep getting intermittent "(insert program name) - Bad Image" error pop-up. The message blames the file "npmproxy.dll". The pop-up is normally associated with an Apple program (I run Outlook and use iCloud and iTunes for syncing). I have spent countless hours trying to fix this. I have re-installed all Apple software several times. I have run many Windows repair tools including virus scans, etc. Nothing seems to work.

I have run SFC both in regular and safe modes. SFC finds an error with the file "npmproxy.dll" but cannot repair it. Says the "source file in the store is corrupt"? I've down loaded a supposedly good copy of npmproxy.dll from Microsoft but have have not been able to replace the corrupt file ... if it is really corrupt. The SFC log excerpt is attached.

I'm ready to buy a Mac! Is there a solution? Or is this just a strange software conflict that I have to live with.

Running Windows 7 with all updates on a two year old Acer Aspire Timeline laptop. I do not have any original system disks as these were not provided by Acer.

A:Bad Image Error due to file "npmproxy.dll"

Have you tried replacing the file in Safe mode and also as you have Win 7 x64 replace it in both Sys32 and SysWOW64 (C:\Windows\SysWOW64). Are you able to take ownership of the file before trying to replace it as per this tutorial

Hello,
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.
 

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

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.

any thoughts?

Thanks =)

Hi,

I have an older PC which I gave to my mum. It originally ran Vista, but I bought and installed Windows 7 Ultimate around 6 weeks ago after it had been inactive for 3/4 months. It was running great, but a couple of weeks ago it just started hanging for no real reason. Also, at startup it would say that the computer had not been shut down properly, even if it had. This was only when it was switched off at the wall, not after a restart or when the PC was left plugged in and switched on. She only uses the PC to look at You Tube and some webcams from her grandkids, and that's it, she's not very computer literate.

Initially, I left Windows repair to run overnight, but when I looked at it the following morning it was still in the repair screen, so I assume it had hung. I spoke to a local repair shop and they suggested I test the RAM, test the hard drive, and replace the CMOS battery. The RAM and hard drive checks went without any errors and after I replaced the battery the hanging stopped. I played with the computer all evening and shut it down as normal and switched it off at the wall. Next day I thought I would start it up just to check it and I was faced with a "cmos checksum error - defaults loaded" message. I thought that was strange, but maybe the battery was dead, so I swapped it over with one from my perfectly working desktop to try it out, and my desktop worked fine, but after shutting down my mum's one it had the same problem when power was p...

A:"cmos checksum error - defaults loaded" after battery replaced

I must add that the PC is the same as when I bought it new from the shop, except for adding a Creative Labs sound card (approx 2012) and installing Windows 7 (around 6 weeks ago). All Windows updates are downloaded and installed.

Hello there~

Recently, I have encountered a number of rather disturbing problems with my Computer(Windows XP).

With a number of programs, such as CCleaner, SuperAntiSpyware, WinDS Pro, MyDefrag etc. etc.... I got an Error... R6002 - floating point support not loaded. Usually. The Error either appeared when I start the program or when I do something with the program~ For example, CCleaner only got this Error after ending a system cleaning, thus closing. MyDefrag gets the problem all the time but it can be ignored - the program works completely fine.
I tried several things to get rid of the error - checking my registry with different programs, using a multitute of antivirus programs, deinstalling and/or reinstalling Microsoft Visual C++, reinstalling all the affected programs... To no avail - nothing has helped in the least bit.
But while trying to figure this problem out, I encountered another rather disturbing problem: Some of my downloads just won't finish. For example, if I try to download CCleaner from ANY site, no matter which, the download will either always stop at the last missing bytes, dropping to 0 kbps and doing nothing, or the download has 0kbps from the start. I tried a number of things, like restarting the computer, cancelling the download and restarting it... to no avail, once again. The only thing that worked is: Downloading a downloader for the program, like it is always the case on softonic or the likes. By downloading a downloader first, it someti... Read more

A:Severe Downloading Issues and "Runtime Error: Floating Point Support Not Loaded"

The file npswf32.dll is for Flash, but my copy is named npswf32_11_6_602_180.dll & dated 3-12-2013

errors like "floating point support not loaded" are created in two ways:
1) the floating point library can not be found
2) the program attempting to load it is not the correct version for your hardware platform.

Your system integrity is questionable (ie likely to be infected), but I would first investigate the Eventlog using Eventvwr.msc and look for errors in the System Log.

Highly recommend you run SFC /SCANNOW (but you will need your install CD or to borrow one from a friend - - it must match your currently installed system).

I installed WinXP once more, installed SP2 and then the Sound Driver.
Again it didnt work.
(DAMMIT!)

Then I remembered that i actually had changed a sound card setting in the bios. (No i did not diasble the soundcard )

The case i have installed this Mboard in has a front pannel.
And the Mboard has a front panel connector.

To connect the front pannel I had turned to the manual to get the rigtht pins set up.
The manual states on page 2-31 that:
"The default setting for this connector is legacy AC'97 audio, if you want to use the High Definition (Azalia) audio features, set the AC97 & Azalia Link A in the BIOS to Azalia."

Well this case does not use a high-definition audio front panel, so of course i had diasbled the Azalia Link i Bios.

"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)

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.

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 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.

In an upgrade of the hard drive, a Windows XP system32 file "desk.cpl" described as a library file copied only the folder but no content. On every startup I get a message saying that "Windows could not load the monitor installer,contact the hardware vendor for assistance" another message from PNP saying "it found new hardware" and a second from PNP saying " new hardware installed successfully". It seems to me that these must all be related. A new driver set for the monitor was obtained but won't install. Windows pops up the Bad Image message saying check file desk.cpl to the original installation disk and drops all install activity. Now here's the rub - there isn't an original install disk. There is a hard disk partition named drive D: which has an original OS copy, but access from drive C: is denied. It apparently can't be opened from drive C: to copy the bad file only.
A 'restore and repair' CD, made at original setup, has an option to 'restore and repair' which leads to what appears to be MS-DOS, but no instruction on "fixing" just one file. Just says it's made for 'technician diagnostics'. I'm not a technician. Here's my questions:

Hi;
Had a sudden inability to go much further than a third or forth-level download on ANY given webpage and then PC would seize-up, requiring "cont+alt+del" in order to get freed-up. Thought perhaps I picked-up a bug of some sort during a recent google search, and went immediately to Panda and Trendmicro to perform both virus as well as malware scans. While the Panda scan was loading-up, I received the following error message....

... " DoPatch....dll reports error....Error "C:\WINNT\patch.utp"....unreadable or not a patch file..."

Was able to complete both scans. Nothing found other than tracking cookies.

I then did a file serch for the above and located it. It was installed TODAY apparently, and not by me, within minutes of the problem starting.

I'm guessing someone/thing slipped this patch into my WINNT file or modified it while I was doing the google search, so I have included a HJT scan below.

Hope this all makes sense and ties-out to something. Any help would be genuinely appreciated-
thanks

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.

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.

Hello TechSupportForum,

I am pretty certain my Windows XP PC is infected with Malware.

I set up my home PC with gotomypc so I could use it while staying abroad for an extended stay. Things were working fine until several weeks ago when the computer started displaying continuous Bad Image error messages. An example of a recent message is as follows:

"Jre-6u15-windows-i586-iftw.exe - bad image. "The application or DLL C:\windows\system32\ATL.dll is not a valid windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette."

I now get such error messages on just about every program I launch. This error prevents me from running any malware scanning software. (Tried running Malwarebytes and Superantispyware--both failed to launch).

Avira antivirus has not given me any virus warnings, however, I cannot perform any scans with it since this problem started happening. It just hangs when I try running a manual scan, yet it apparently continues to run in the system tray and download virus updates.

I can only access the pc via gotomypc for now.

Is it possible to disinfect the PC by accessing solely via gotomypc?

My DDS log is as follows and ARK.txt file and Attach.txt files are in the attach.zip file attached to this message.

Thanks in advance...

For the past week or 2 my computer has been infected with Antivirus 2009. I have encountered this virus before on numerous different computers but this is the first time that I have seen it on my computer. Every other time I have dealt with it all I would have to do is run Malwarebytes once or twice and that would be the end of the problem. However when I did that on my computer it did not find Antivirus 2009 anywhere. So I looked for the common signs of it such as the folder in the program files and looking in the process tab of the task manager for av2009.exe or anything of the sort but none of that was there. So after I ran Malewarebytes which found some other viruses or trjoans which required a reboot to delete them I started getting bad image errors for the files that were deleted by Malwarebtyes. This message popsup anytime I open an executable program or when all of these programs load up when Windows starts. So now I have two problems: 1.

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:

Hi! :) I have a Samsung PM800 256GB SSD. I made an image backup two nights ago with Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. Then yesterday I had some issues with partition alignment which somehow botched the Windows Repair/Recovery Environment found in "Repair Your Computer" when you hit F8 on boot. Windows, however, was fine after a startup repair and the partition was aligned perfectly. :) However, I couldn't get the Recovery Environment back so I did a fresh install of Windows Professional 64-bit onto my system. The recovery partition was there (and on a side note, it was aligned correctly, too). I am now trying to restore the image I made a few days ago. However, I realize I cannot conduct this restore (of the image) if Iaccess the recovery environment through the hard drive (tells me it can't restore because the environment is on the hard drive which is to be restored) or a disc (I cannot eject a disc in the recovery environemnt due to lacking drivers for the touch-sensitive eject key). So I put the Recovery Environment on a flash drive which seems to work fine, though I cannot be certain that this is working perfectly.Nonetheless, I insert the disc with my backup (50GB Blu-ray DL) and the jump drive. Boot into the recovery environment via flash drive (my motherboard supports USB booting) and attempt to restore the image. It tells me it will have to format the drive, etc. However, as soon as I click the final "yes" prompt and it starts to restore, it immediat... Read more

A:Windows image restore (Error code 0x80070057; "the parameter is incorrect")

Guys. I fixed it. It's doing the image restore now. I called MS and they told me that you can't do an image restore unless ALL the drives are exactly as they were. Meaning when I was using my jump drive to initiate the recovery (because I can't eject the recovery disk to put in the image disk), it was counting that as a drive. So no go on using a jump drive to initiate the Windows Recovery Environment. That was what was the "the parameter is incorrect; 0x80070057" error. I figured out a workaround that I should have seen INSTANTLY. All this time, it's been there. When you're selecting an image, Microsoft realized some people might have their images on external drives which require special drivers. You just go there and wala, you see a Browse icon. Go in there, right-click the optical drive, eject, put in the one with the image. It's restoring now. OH YEAH! And, btw, if you were wondering, 3 is the limit of times you can clean install from an upgrade disk on 7. I had to call and get that working,too. ~Ibrahim~

MSI, Pentium 4 1.9GHz, 2x60 GB HD (Maxtor ???), 2x256MD DDR-266

It won´t boot at all - none of the F8 boot options work, which I have tried several times after recieving the following error:

Dialog Box Heading: WINLOGON.EXE - Bad Image
Message (not exactly): c:\windows\WnSxS\xxxxxxxxxWindows.Common.Controlsxxxxxxxxxxxx - bad image

I have used the Recovery Console to browse around a bit to see if I can trace what happened, find suspisious files, looking at *.log files etc. Nothing.

All attempts to boot (all boot options) result in the same situation: the regular WinXP load screen appears, then it turns black, mouse appears and there I sit waiting for the login screen. I am still able to move mouse, but no other actions have any effect.

I have had the machine for 2 years and never had any serious issues and I have kept drivers and Xp updated (except I haven´t installed SP2 yet).

Thanks for anything that might help.

PS! Reinstall is not an option (yet)

Hi all,

A friend from work has experienced a problem with her computer and has asked me to look at it. The problem occured while she was doing her usual browsing, (emailing and facebook), the computer just shut down on its own accord. On start up it loaded up fine and appeared to be normal. However, when she double clicked on her I.E icon the following message occurs:

"Googledesktop.exe-bad image. The application or dll c:/program files/google/google desktop search/googledesktopcommon.dll is not a valid windows image. Please check this against your installation deskette."

Her brother in law has already run three different scans including a normal anti virus scan, spybot search and destroy. Nothing came up. I have also run a disk error check and everything appears to be fine. She has tried a system restore but that didnt fix this problem either.

I have just come back from her home after looking, I found out that the error message above comes up on startup. When the I.E icon is doubled clicked sometimes the message will repappear and sometimes it will just load and never actually display anything. I have run another scan myself on pc spyware docter and found 9 different viruses such as tracking cookies, trojan horse (back door) and advertisement viruses. It also found another 101 threats which have all been deleted, this however did not solve the problem.

Sounds like the USB Recovery Image is not being recognized or the files you installed to the USB drive are missing or damaged.

All .exe files are recieving a pop up error message - Bad Image.

So an example when opening IE - the following comes up

iexplore.exe - Bad Image (is the header of the error message)

global\systemroot\system32\kbiwkmjdioycjv.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.

The only change to the constant barrage of pop ups is the header of the error. what .exe file is opening.

One or more of the identified infections is a backdoor trojan.

This type of infection allows hackers to remotely control your computer, log keystrokes, steal critical system information, and download and execute files without your knowledge.

If you do any banking or other financial transactions on the PC or if it should contain any other sensitive information, please get to a known clean computer and change all passwords where applicable, and it would be wise to contact those same financial institutions to apprise them of your situation.

This problem is near identical to the problem posted here.

*

On opening a programme this error message appears:

"File.EXE - Bad Image
The application or DLL C:\WINDOWS\system32\csqybr.dll in not a valid Windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette."

On clicking OK [the only option other than the top-right X] this error message appears:

"FILE.EXE - Bad Image
The application or DLL C:\WINDOWS\system32\totemoze.dll in not a valid Windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette."

After clicking OK on this error message the programme does appear to open and run normally [albeit slower than before].
Originally only one of these error messages used to appear on opening any programme (sorry but I cannot remember which one [if it even was one of the two posted – though it definitely was in the same format).

Booting up is obviously quite a pain as you have to click these away for every programme that starts up.

*

As mentioned at the start my problem is quite identical to one previously solved, right down to the problems getting the programmes SDFix and ComboFix to run. Following the instructions given in that thread I then tried to download “WinPFind3U.exe” however I could not find it. Please may I be advised how to proceed?
Thanks in advance,

Hi,

I am trying to help a friend with their laptop. It is a fairly new Dell laptop (about 2 years old) running Windows XP. They don't know if one of there kids downloaded something with a virus or what caused the issue. I have never dealt with this sort of issue before.

When trying to boot the computer, one receives the following error after the Windows XP splash screen:

"The application or DLL C:\WINDOWS\system32\DNsapI.dll is not a valid Windows Image. Please check this against your installation diskette.".

The computer never boots up.

I would really appreciate help with this issue.

I hope it does not require the Windows XP disc, since they can not find it.

Thanks,

Hi guys,
This is my first time posting in here, and hopefully it is my last. Anyways, my computer has recently been attacked by a nastly little virus (I think). My computer froze up a few days ago, and I got this "security tool" program "put" on my computer after the freeze up. I suspected it was a virus from the start, and I was able to get it off of my computer. I ran spybot, and it said I had some trojans on the computer, and it aparently took care of those. However, I still get these "bad Image error" pop-ups whenever I run an application. I also get pelted with many of these same bad image error messages as windows starts up. I havent counted the exact number, but there are 2 before welcome shows up on the welcome screen, then there are about 4 more after welcome shows up, and then on windows startup, I probably receive another 25 errors. I click "OK" on the message box, and it goes away. The computer has had a few minor issues since the episode, such as now my background image is gone, but other than that, I cannot find anything that is different. I downloaded and ran HTJ, and here is the log.

This is my first time posting here, so any help is appreciated... I almost bought a mac after this... so hopefully you guys can fix this so I dont have to resort to such foolishness.
Here is the log.

Hello, I am used to certain Vista problems on my less-than-half-a-year-old HP laptop (BSOD, random shutdowns when idle, the whole "security
options dialogue has failed to blahblah", etc.) as I had done my research and found these to be relatively common. Recently though
there is a whole new batch of problems that are more serious.It started the other day when I
attempted to open a file, I got one of those "Bad Image" Error messages. Then trying to open
AOL (which I had never had a problem with before, either) I got another Error Message--a Bad Image message
about AOLTopSpeed or something related "not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error". AOL
still loads, but I only get my buddy list and my mailbox to work...no web-sites load through it. Internet
explorer and Firefox still work though. So these error messages are becoming more and more frequent.
Now when I turn on my computer and logon to Windows the first message I get is the following:
"MSASCui.exe - Bad Image

C:Windows\system32.MSFTEDIT.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

So these are the types of things that go on. Also, some other things have been happening a lot

Hi all,

A friend from work has experienced a problem with her computer and has asked me to look at it. The problem occured while she was doing her usual browsing, (emailing and facebook), the computer just shut down on its own accord. On start up it loaded up fine and appeared to be normal. However, when she double clicked on her I.E icon the following message occurs:

"Googledesktop.exe-bad image. The application or dll c:/program files/google/google desktop search/googledesktopcommon.dll is not a valid windows image. Please check this against your installation deskette."

Her brother in law has already run three different scans including a normal anti virus scan, spybot search and destroy. Nothing came up. I have also run a disk error check and everything appears to be fine. She has tried a system restore but that didnt fix this problem either.

Any ideas and help on this would be very much appreciated.
Thanks.

Hello. I am using a POWER USER account, Windows XP Professional Service Pack 2 /w all the latest patches availible via microsoft update. I was trying to create a .zip file of a folder within the primary directroy of a backup hard drive I use.

For Example:
D:\stuff - I wanted to make a zipfile of the folder "stuff."

Then I get the following error "Cannot Create Output File."

However, if I move the folder to the destop or a subdirectory i.e. stuff/more stuff, then the .zip file is created with no problems.

Also, because user accounts [at least in my experience] have a tendency to decay, I created a freash power user account and the same problem persist.

Is this a standard security feature for power user accounts? Is there anyway I can "disable" it if it is?

Thank You.

Golly I'm at my wits end here. I just had to reformat my hard drive - OK no problem. So then I had to reload Windows XP Pro - now every time I start my computer up, it just says "invalid boot.ini file" and forces me to start up from the XP Disk - no Windows... I have rebuilt the boot.ini file from Microsoft support (http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;330184) and still don't have any luck - it just keeps telling me that the boot.ini file is invalid again at startup. I've also copied the boot.ini file from my other computer and copied the file using the Recovery console. I'm now re-formatting the drive for the 3rd time today to make sure it's all a clean install, but keep getting that same darn error upon start and can't load Windows.

Here are the specs of the computer:
Dimension 4300 1.6GHz
320GB Western Digital Hard Drive (10 months old)
New copy of Microsoft Windows XP Professional w/SP2
512MB RAM

Thanks in advance for your help on this! I'm really at the end here!

I have been trying to setup a postscript printer on port "File:" so I can print anything from a webpage to a file for running through Acrobat 8 Distiller. When I first install the print to file, it works fine until I reboot the computer. Every time I print to this printer after the reboot, I get a pop-up box titled "Local Port" with the message "Cannot Print to File: Access Denied". I gather it is a permission problem of some sort as I can log onto the Administrator user-id and it prints to file fine. Any ideas on what permissions I need to set this printer to in order for it to work under a standard user-id?

Using Windows Vista Ultimate X64.

Thanks

I have given up finding a solution to the problem. I no longer use Adobe Acrobat Professional full as I have tried both updates 8.0.1 & 8.0.2 to no avail, and is now unsupported as Adobe is up to version 9 of this software. I have opted for a freeware solution, so I have uninstalled Adobe Acrobat Professional and installed the freeware CUTEPDF Writer at www.cutepdf.com. It works beautifully on Vista X64 on all documents, including Microsoft Word and Scanned Images and Photos. I'm very happy with the results.

I believe that's the case and the registry fix you posted is far too vague for someone to tinker in the registry.

The keys to look for are:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main]

and

There is a box (from MS Edit) with buttons "retry" "cancel" "help". I clicked on help and this information was displayed:

Edit is unable to create or access the specified file, which might be due to the following reasons:

I've seen posts (e.g., this one) about getting the error message "This file is not in a recognizable format" when trying to open files in Excel. Apparently this can occur for various reasons, but an online search didn't turn up an answer for my own situation, so I'm posting the solution I came up with.

In my case, the error message appeared when I installed Excel 2007 on the same machine as Excel 2000 and tried to open 2000. To eliminate the problem:
Close Excel.
Go to Documents and Settings > Application Data > Microsoft > Excel > XLSTART. The folder contains a PERSONAL.XLS and PERSONAL.XLSB file.
Assuming Office 2000 and Office 2007 have been installed in separate directories in Program Files:
- Move the PERSONAL.XLS file to Program Files > Microsoft Office > Office > XLStart
- Move the PERSONAL.XLSB file to Program Files > Microsoft Office 2007 (or however it's named) > Office 12 > XLSTART.
Don't just copy the files--move them. The original folder should be empty.
Restart Excel 2000.

Thanks for that, but Microsoft recommends you do not have two versions of Office installed on the same computer - then the error would not occur.

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 above error message occurred while trying to copy my XP OS partition from my WinMe partition using a program which I believe is using xcopy which I downloaded from http://www.lexunfreeware.com/

I am trying to backup my programs which are on one partition, my WinXP OS which is on another partition and my data which is on another partition.

I am backing them up to a 2nd hard drive.

I was successful in backing up the "program" partition but received the error on backing up the XP Partition.

Any ideas what may have caused it?

HI,

Process.start is causing error "The system cannot find the file specified." when IE is opened using ShDocvw.dll.
I am having a form with two buttons, one to open an html file and the other is to navigate a URL.

The following code is used to open the html file.

Private Sub OpenViewer_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnOpenViewer.Click

Dim objProcess As New Process

objProcess.StartInfo.FileName = "c:\Example1.html"
objProcess.StartInfo.Verb = "open"
objProcess.StartInfo.CreateNoWindow = True

objProcess.Start()

End Sub

the above code is working fine as long as i am using only this button click. But in special scenario this is causing error "The system cannot find the file specified."

I am using ShDocvw.dll to open up the IE with a URL.

the folloing is the code using for that.

All of a sudden I could not find my sent mails in the Sent Items Folder. I looked for help from the forums and got a suggestion to create another profile to test whether I can see my sent mails there. I followed the instructions but there was not enough to lead me through so I don't think I completed creating a profile. Then I got another suggestion to purchase the Registry Booster to clean up my registry. After I did that I was able to see my sent mails again.

However I still continue to see the Outlook Data File Popup with the message "This data file has not been configured. Select an existing file to configure or try the name of a new file to create". After I clicked "OK" then I got another pop up to prompting me to choose a file from the Libraries.Documents directory. I clicked "Cancel" then I got another pop up with "Properities for this data file must be defined prior to use". I clicked "OK" and then I got the Outlook Data File Popup and the same subsequent popups again. After clicking through I was able to start my Outlook but when use the registry Booster to scan I got more error messages. So apparently these errors from Outlook is mucking up my registry. Anyone has any idea about this problem? Please help. Your assistance is greatly appreciated. Thank you. Helen.

A:Outlook 2010 Error message "This data file has not been configured"

Hi Helen,

Firstly, you certainly do not need any registry boosters to solve Outlook data file issues - was this a recommendation made by someone, or was this suggested to you by an automated pop-up? If its the latter, is there any chance you could be infected by some sort of malware?

To solve the Outlook issue, do you know where your Outlook data file is being stored? Can you do a search on your computer for all files with this extension:

.pst

Post back here with your findings. Also, can you tell us about your current system : what anti-virus software are you using. I'm a bit concerned about this Registry Booster : generally speaking, in most cases you really do not need/want to be mucking with the registry at all.

Regards,
Golden

Hi,

I was doing some major partitioning work on my comp...just to re-allocate space and so forth throughout my two drives.

But i found out on one of my partitions on my second drive (while I was trying to resize it by making it larger) that there was a an error : "Error 1555 Internal file number does not match position" and the resizing process halted.

I consulted Powerquest's website for a solution to this error (please see: http://www.powerquest.com/support/primus/id2419.cfm)

The problem is that the solution requires me to go into the drive itself and run CHKDSK /F, but on my system I cannot even see my drive unless it is within Partitionmagic.

I can't even see the parition in "My Computer", nor can i access it by going in dos mode... the error i get is "system cannot find the drive specified".

How do I get my partition to re-appear, so I can be able to run CHKDSK on it???

thanks in advance,

Zach.

I just downloaded and installed SteadyState. I locked three users, but when the user logged on, they all got an error message, "Windows cannot copy file (file name..) Possible causes of this error include network problems or insufficient security rights. If this problem persists, contact your network administrator. DETAIL - The filename or extension is too long. 
 
I can't find the file that is listed in the error message.
I unlocked the profiles and took off all the restrictions except blocking firefox and netscape. I am still getting the error message. How can I fix this?

A:Error: "Windows cannot copy file. The filename or extension is too long."

Hi,
 
We occasionally see this with locked profiles.  When a profile is locked, Windows copies the original profile directory (often c:\users\user.orig) to a temporary location (often c:\users\user).  During the user's session, changes the user makes are written to this temporary location.  When the user logs off, Windows deletes the temporary profile, thus cleaning up his changes.
 
When you see the warning about filenames being too long when the locked user logs in, the problem is usually that temporary internet files created by Internet Explorer exceed the default 260 character path length limit, so Windows encounters an error when it tries to copy these files to the temporary location.  It's possible that other applications could create long filenames/paths that cause similar problems.
 
I've been able to solve the problem by unlocking the profile, logging in as the restricted user, then emptying the user's temporary internet files in Internet Explorer.  Then log off, log on as the Administrator again, and re-lock the user's profile.
 
Hope that helps.

Greetings all, tearing my hair out over this. I normally use google-fu to solve stuff but after a few hours I'm still stymied on this one.

My brother handed me this laptop that he had upgraded to Win10 (probably in the hopes it would magically fix longstanding problems he'd been having with it). It's x64, for the record.

I'm sure it's had malware infections in the past. I don't believe it currently does though--ran Malwarebytes and looked myself in msconfig and I don't see anything untoward.

But I think a previous malware infestation screwed up the BITS service to the point now where it will not start. I didn't notice this until I tried to run Windows update. No matter what I do I can't get it to install KB3081448 (well it won't even download it). Windows update fails with "There were problems installing some updates, but we'll try again later. If you keep seeing this and want to search the web or contact support for information, this may help:

"Cumulative Update for Windows 10 for x64-based Systems (KB3081448) - Error 0x80246008"

That's what led me to check the status of the BITS service. It's set to Automatic but is stopped. When I try to start it I get:

"Windows could not start the Background Intelligent Transfer Service on Local Computer. For more information, review the System Event Log. If this is a non-Microsoft service, contact the service vendor. and refer to service-specific-error code -2147024894."

Hello all. I'm posting here for the first time in hopes someone can help me find a solution to a very frustrating problem. I researched what I could and tried numerous possible solutions, but nothing seems to work.

The Problem
I get the following error during the installation of newer games (i.e. Brothers In Arms: Earned In Blood) "Failed Reading Source File: [DRIVE LETTER FOLLOWED BY SOME RANDOM FILE NAME]. The source media may be bad. If installing from a CD, try cleaning the CD to remove any dirt." This error occurs every time I try to install and at seemingly random points during the install process. One time it will happen on CD1 and the next time it will happen on CD3. I don't appear to have this problem during application software installation as I'm able to install MS Office 2003 without any issues.

Good Morning Everyone,

I have a problem with two "missing file" entries in my HijackThis log and a popup that comes up seemingly randomly while I am online-- generally after I get kicked off a server or something like that.

I believe this problem is similar to the problem that you solved in this thread:
http://forums.techguy.org/security/499001-solved-what-have-i-gotten.html
I read your instructions to that user and tried to apply them to mine. All I got after reboots and more popups. I also have two suspect "missing files" where that user only had one. So here goes:

The offending popup:

(please pardon my use of photobucket and marginal MS Paint skills, I wasn't sure how else to put an image on here)

Steps I have done already:
1. Downloaded Vundofix.exe
2. renamed hijackthis.exe to hjt.exe in case the log entries are hidden.
3. copied and pasted the logfile from htj.exe which is below.

Hi,

I recently bought a new 2gb Sandisk SD card for use in my Samsung D75 digital camera. I took about 10 pictures, and a few videos on it, all of which I was able to view perfectly at first. Later however, one of the pictures was giving the message "file error" when I tried to view it via the camera, and when I transferred it to the computer the JPEG file shows as a red 'x' on Microsoft Office Picture Manager.

I have tried programs such as Pc Inspector File Recovery, ZAR etc, none of which worked. With JPEG snoop I was able to recover a blurred image, however am unsure how to continue working with this to restore the file to its original clarity.

My question:

1. Is there a way to recover this JPEG file using any sort of available program?
2. Does anyone know how to use some of the more advanced aspects/commands in JPEG snoop, and think they know how I might be able to recover this image?
3. Has anyone any other ideas of how this image may be recovered/restored?

I will happily send the corrupt JPEG file if anyone thinks they may be able to assist. The picture is very important to me and I would hate to think I will not be able to retrieve it.

Any help would be very much appreciated....

Many thanks

A:Picture on Sandisk 2Gb SD card showing "file error"

The largest card you can use in the Samsung D75 is 1 GB according to the web.

Therefore the memory management will be totally screwed in how it has saved the data, you might have a fight on your hand retrieving it.

Hello,

I have tried to start up my PC recently and I get the message

that my boot system has failed due to the fact it's missing the file "\BCD".
I have contacted the microsoft company to report this issue no one can help me without my product code, or a disc/USB with the windows 8 system on it.
I have none of these and yet my issue still remains. My PC has worked perfectly the day before I shut it down.
I'm trying very hard to restore my system but all I can find of the ways to restore it is by clicking control panel, etc...

I cannot access my laptop's desktop all I get is this error message and options to enter the setup utilities, firmware and boot options.

In all I'm asking for is, is there a way to restore my system from any of these options or is this another toss away laptop because windows 8 has failed to find this missing file?
I cannot get a replacement because I do not have the key with me that was used to install the operating system. This is all very frustrating and not to mention my job relies on this computer so it's putting everything to risk with my situation right now.

Thank you very much for your support with this matter I look forward to your options.
