Windows continually attempts to install MS Money 2002 any time I navigate via Windows Explorer or Internet Explorer. I saw an earlier thread where the same thing happened upon startup but that's not happening with me. I already have MS Money 2002 installed and it's been working fine until 2 January, when the MS Money folder was modified - albeit not by me. I ran a recent version of Norton Anti-Virus & some Spyware programs, but nothing was found.

Would appreciate any help.

So the 29th of July i went ahead and installed the Windows 10 update. It installed correctly and ran smooth without any problems for a few hours. Suddenly i realized that my Start Menu button didn't open the start menu when i clicked it. Neither did the search button.

I didn't really think about it much and continued gaming with one of my friends. Later that night i tried to restart my pc to see if that fixed any of my issues. Unfortunately nothing was fixed.

Now i can't open any microsoft apps (other than the Health and training app through the Task Manager and then the apps tab). Theres no way to access the settings or Windows Update so im stuck with just using non-microsoft apps if i can find them that is under my HDD.

(Edit) I can't rightclick anything in the taskbar or manage my internet connection.

Any help to fix this is highly appriciated.

Methods i have tried found around the internet:

Using the
Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"} command in Windows PowerShell as admin.

Running this troubleshooter from this link

Neither of them fixed anything.

In anticipation of installing Win 10, I upgrade my RAM and replaced my hdd with an SSD drive. I am upgrading from Windows 7 SP1 Home Premium. I did the upgrade and not a clean install. The upgrade seemed to go just fine. The first thing I noticed was and Notices icon so I clicked on it and some notices appeared. I tried to click on those but as soon as I moved the mouse off of the notices icon the list disappeared. The same thing happened when I went to Start. I rebooted the computer and the above problems went away. So I began exploring around the Start Menu. I got cortana to recognize Hey Cortana and she even told me a joke.

I have just upgraded from Windows Vista (32bit) to Windows 7 Professional (64bit) and did a custom installation and used the Windows Easy Transfer system.
All went well..... or so I thought, until I tried to restore Microsoft Money's backup file which now seems corrupt. I have looked at the old Microsoft Money help forums and found a couple of hints - firstly to check the program works by loading the sample data (which works fine) and also that possibly it was due to an update not being on the disc with Money so I ran the update but still no luck.

The message I get each time is firstly that it needs t oconvert your file to work with the new version (same version though !) secondly when I find the file to restore it comes up with

"Money cannot locate C: ...... (pathname) or cannot open it, possibly because it is a read only file or you do not have permission to change it, or your disk is write protected.
If you have chosen the correct file and it cannot be accessed you will need to click OK and open your most recent backup file.
If the file is being used by another application, close it in the other application and click OK to try
again. "

I have checked that the file is not read only - I have full access rights and it is not being used by another application.
I have also - just out of desperation tried the file recovery/repair option and it creates a "log" in Notepad which reads .....

I have a copy of Windows 7 to replace Vista on my desktop. However, I read in several places that Windows 7 does not support Microsoft Money (not that Vista does a very good job of it).

Could anyone enlighten me on the possible problems involved in running Microsoft Money in Windows 7?

Thank You,


A:Windows 7 and Microsoft Money

Money has been discontined. If you have an copy, before you install, just make a system image. If you like the result, use money. If you do not like it just uninstall or use the system image, to go back to a time prior to installation.

I tried to put money 2003 on my Win 7, the only problem that I had, every time I shut down, all the entries disappeared. Istopped using it and designed my own Excel budget, which was the primary use that I had for money.

I have given you the URL to Microsoft Compatablity Center. Check to see if Money should be compatible.

I installed a desktop publishing program on both my Vista Desktop and my Win 7 laptop.

When I went to open the Help File I had to go to the Microsoft site for the WinHlp32.exe download. This was because I received an error message re a problem running the macro (1037) This a known problem.

I let MS "Fix" it on the Vista machine and it worked like a charm. But when I tried it TWICE on the Win7 laptop it wouldn't work. So per their documentation I attempted to fix it myself. That didn't work either.

Tried to contact their support link provided and that was useless.

Welcome to TechSpot

Select Start/Programs and see if anything is in your Startup folder. If you find an install or setup in there, "drag" it out to the Desktop. Reboot and see if the Money-stuff is gone. If not, "drag" it back in your Startup folder.

Try this.
Select Start/Run and type in msconfig and press enter.
Check the startup-options. Somewhere in there you are likely to find the install or setup for that prog. Disable it by marking the appropriate line, save it and exit.
On your next (re)boot it should be gone.

Okay, here's a good one that I've come across and I'm sure there is an expert among all of you that can tell me how to do this. I have a Warpia device (to show my screen on the TV). Now before I install the software, when my computer's screen goes black (I guess asleep), and I touch the touch pad it wakes up and says "What Do You Want To Do". So we are on our merry way. However, if I install the software to the Warpia to watch something on my large TV screen instead of my computer screen (mostly a movie that the wife wants to watch as well), I have to install the software. When the movie is over with, I have to uninstall it so the next time my screen goes black all I have to do is touch the touch pad. If I don't unstall the software, then I have to hit Ctrl-Alt-Del to get to the task manager and hit cancel. So my question is, is there away to run this software without actually installing it or what can I do?

My comp came with Drive Image Special Edition (DISE) pre-installed. To begin, DISE creates a "D" partition. My "D" partition is large, 5 GB. Most of it is free space, DISE only takes up about 25 MB. 1st question I have is does DISE reserve this 5 GB for it's exclusive use?? If I were to run low on disk space, would I be able to access this 5 GB??

DISE for me is useless. I have Trend Micro software that does a nice job of backing things up. I attempted to uninstall DISE using the supplied uninstall program. There are several screens to wade through, but ultimately, you get to a screen which says "Do You WIsh To Uninstall DISE?" There is a box in which you must type "YES". Then a message pops up saying that the uninstall program must be run within a DOS environment and that all open programs will be terminated. Then there is a "Do you wish to proceed" message with a yes/no button to click. It is at this point that the uninstall program stops...nothing happens. I've tried running this several different times with no luck.

DISE was made by PowerQuest. They were acquired by Symantic. The Symantic site offers no help whatsoever, since it's a program they no longer support.

How can I SAFELY remove the DISE software?? BTW, the uninstall program says that the D partition will not be removed, even when using the factory uninstall program.

A:"windows Configures Microsoft Money 2002" Constant Message During Ie

Hello msraymac and welcome to the BC HijackThis forum. I see no signs of viruses or malware in the log. It is clean.

Sometimes security applications clean out legitimate programs when they perform a scan. If you just deleted MS Money without doing an uninstall then there could easily be left-over files and most probably all of the registry entries will still be present. The best thing to do would be to install MS Money again and then perform an uninstall to properly remove all of the files and settings.

I've been fighting with Microsoft update web site for about a week and a half now. All of the sudden when I go there to get updates, all I get is the option to click on Express or Custom. Then when it gets to the page where ya see the green balls moving across the page while its scanning my system to see if I need any updates, it just stays there and if I stay at that page too long, my PC locks up.

I'm running XP Pro with 500MHz and 256 in ram. I've tried to contact Microsoft tech guys that I can barley understand and they have no idea what's going on. It doesn't make any difference if its a fresh install of XP Pro with nothing else installed except for my wireless card so I can connect to the net, or the current system I'm running now.

I was just wondering if anybody else has had this problem. I really don't expect any answers here because the guys who I could barley understand from Microsoft and have spent about 3.5 hrs with, had me renaming files and shutting this and shutting that off and on and nothing has worked.

They have told me that I'm the only person who has called with this kind of problem which I think is a bold face lie!

I welcome any comments or suggestions. Excuse me if I don't answer to this post right away because I'm trying every trick I know to try and get the updates my PC needs.

Hi, I'm having an issue with Microsoft Edge Flash not working, specifically on Pandora. I want to like it so much, it's close but it's missing some key features and various annoyances.

Anyways, Adobe Flash works just fine with Microsoft edge.

I have tried the solution to "Reset_Microsoft_Edge" via Windows PowerShell Command, which didn't solve the issue. (Also reset Internet Explorer's settings)

And Yes, before you ask, it's turned on in the settings.

What's very odd is that Pandora doesn't even use flash on other browsers, but it uses HTML 5.

YouTube Loads HTML 5 Videos in Microsoft Edge too, so I'm not sure what the problem is....

To be honest, it's a minor annoyance, Surely I can just use another browser, but that's bedside's the point. It's not working as it should, and I just want it fixed.

I just bought an OEM Toshiba laptop, running Vista Home. Out of the box not a problem with Vista, but because I HATE touchpads, I bought a Microsoft corded optical mouse, and when I plug it in, I get a message from Vista, that a USB device has malfunctioned. But I know that's crap, cause when I plug it into my desktop CP machine, it works fine.
I have installed all Vista upgrades, and updated the Toshiba thru their website, but I still can't get a MICROSOFT MOUSE TO WORK WITH A MICROSOFT OPERATING SYSTEM.

Thanx and best regards

I have a program that I can't uninstall. I get an error message "Cannot open INSTALL.LOG". The log is right there, in the same folder as the uninstaller. I tried both add/remove programs in control panel, and running the uninstaller directly. Same error, both ways. I also tried to reinstall first over the existing program. No luck.

So I figure that I'll just delete it manually, but would like to ask if I am forgetting anything.

Delete the folder in Program Files

Run a search for both the program name and the company name, and delete all files

(Optional, I suppose:) Run a registry search for both the program name and the company name, and delete all keys. (I'm guessing that if I don't, the program will continue to be listed in the add/ remove programs list.)

Would that about cover it? Or might someone have a completely different idea? Thank you to all who take the time to reply.

An additional thought: Could the information in the INSTALL.LOG be of help to me?

A:Uninstall A Program Whose Uninstaller Doesn't Work

Read all the text files in the program's directory - it may give you clues as to where and what the program installed.

Next, remember to backup everything (files and registry entries) before you delete it! A manual removal can hose your system if you're not familiar with the structure of the OS.

Hi everyone .... I have this Take Ownership installed and I still have a problem to save a new stationary in my Statioanry directory.

It still tells me I am not authorized to save in this Stationary directory. It tells me I have to ask Administrator to do it. You can assume - it's solely my computer and nobody else use except me. Oh God this Vista is such a pain in the neck.

What else can I do? I don't want to log in as Administrator - it messes up some of the system settings.

Please help!!!

My Brother is having a heck of a difficult time with his new ACER Aspire 9420 laptop computer. I have the same model that was bought at the same time. I'm not pleased with mine, however I am not having the same kind of problems he is experiencing.

After having a problem running programs, he decided that he had to use the backup OS disk that was recommended to be made so that he could restore his computer to the initial factory condition of the computer. After inserting the DVD he made with the back up program on it, he found that it wouldn't run or be recognized. Why would ACER have suggested that such a disk be made, if it will not run when you need it?

Anyone having the same problem? How do you correct this?

I switched from 32-bit XP to 64-bit Vista and my Microsoft Office 2003 isn't working on Vista for some reason. Is this supposed to happen or is there something I can do or something that I can download to make it work with Vista by any chance???

Hello there.

I've been looking all over the net for an answer, but it seems there's nothing known about this. I've installed Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator on Windows 7 Professional.

I have attached a picture of what it looks like on my machine. I've tried reinstalling and running either or both of the setup and the program in various compatibility modes. This is what it should look like:

Now, this program requires .Net 2.0. Windows 7 ships with 3.5. I guessed that it wasn't backwards compatible, so I downloaded a v2 redist from microsoft. Wouldn't install because "it's already installed on the system".

Is their a compat mode for .Net? Or do you have any better idea how I could fix this?

A:Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator doesn't work under Win7

Same issue here. I'm new to Windows 7, but I'm generally an advanced computer user and very familiar with XP.

I haven't found anything yet about this on the 'net, except another thread similar to this one:

Have you figured anything out yet? Please fill me in if so. Really want to use this program...

On my old Thinkpad Windows XP notebook, which is almost three years old, the language bar is now starting to malfunction. I usually need to switch between English (US) and Chinese (PRC), and the language bar has been working for me in doing so until recently. Now, when I open Microsoft Word 2003 and try to switch to Chinese, Word freezes and I have to use the Task Manager to end the Word process.

I have been able to switch to Chinese (PRC) on my desktop with the language bar, but even when I do so, the language bar still says I'm on the English language (the only reason I know I'm on Chinese is because there's a check mark next to the language).

My dad had recently installed an update from Java, and in the process inadvertently installed OpenOffice as well. He had also installed Windows Live Messenger and in the process installed Rhapsody player as well. I did a System Restore to a point before he installed any of this, but that didn't help at all.

What could be the problem? I've cleared my registry. I've tried using the language bar in safe mode and it has the same problem. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the East Asian language files, but that hasn't helped at all.

Is there any program that I should use to diagnose this problem? And afterwards, how do I solve it?

I was running Microsoft Security Essentials when it just froze 1/2 way through a quick scan. The mouse still could move, clicking to stop or close out didn't do anything either. Also Ctrl + Alt + Delete also did nothing. I waited 5 minutes. Nothing. Had to pysically shut down.

Other times I have not been able to click start > shut down. Sometimes I can wait a minute or two and finally things will work again.

Is this indicative of some other process running? Possible a virus? RAM problem? Could a motherboard going bad cause this? Also this customer's BIOS became corrupted for some reason, as the computer would not start before I reseated the battery to get the computer to start again. The battery tested normal at 3.06 V. So I'm still trying to rule out hardware.

I'm on a friend's computer right now, who uses a dropbox system which works in conjunction with a sound recorder. (The person record whatever he or she needs to record, they save it, which means it sends to whomever the dropbox was made for, which in this case is his/her professor. DAMN THEM PROFESSORS :3)

Usually he/she tries to use the program and the sound recorder, which works or doesn't work, but causes all audio on the computer to fail.

When the friend came to me for help, on a freak accident, the microphone/dropbox system worked, and kept all audio intact and sound. So I know the sound is working or able to work.

Another interesting thing about this problem is that ALL audio programs do not work. This doesn't just affect the browsers, this also affects Windows Media Player, which now refuses to play sound files that used to be able to be played because it says it can't play that kind of file.

That does seem to be Microsoft's idea of maximum protection. It isn't necessary to access the net as an administrator. It is safer to have a separate user account as it limits the damage caused by malware. Using the smart screen filter and in private browsing helps. Firefox with NoScript and the HTTPS Everywhere add-on is safer than Internet Explorer. There is no guaranteed security.

Having discontinued Microsoft Money, MS came out with the free "Sunset" version, which you can download at their site. Do NOT download from another site, or you get an older version that expires in a couple of months.

Installing it on Win 8 Preview was no problem. Transferring my files was. Money wants to store your files on your hard drive, not on a thumb drive. But with a few minutes work, I transferred all my records over, and it works fine.

A:Microsoft Money

I tried to install Sunset Money on Windows 8 but still wanted to have the official file on Windows 7 since I have a showstopper problem on Windows 8. I ended up with a new money backup file on the Windows 8 screen every time I used money in Windows 7 so have uninstalled it on Windows. But it is a very nice gesture on Microsoft's part to make the sunset edition available and far more mature approach to bailing out of commitments than you usually see.

I have the 2003 version of Money and have just updated my lap top (32 bits) and downloaded the programme without difficulty. However, my main computer (64 bits) will not download. I have tried everything. Any advice would be most welcome.

We are using Money 2004 and have now installed Money 2007, the 2004 version is still installed and functioning.

We wish to move our "D:\BU Backups\My Money Backup.mbf" file that was updated today to Money 2007, but we are advised on the "About upgrading your Money file" Window that "Money can't open this file because it was created using a different version of Money. To open a different file or create a new one, on the FILE menu, click OPEN or NEW"

We have tried all of the various options, but still seem to come back to the same message.

Is there a way of updating the old Money 2004 backup file, we obviously wish to avoid entering in three years of data at all costs!

I see that others on this forum have had problems, but I can't easily see an answer that would help me, so forgive me if I have missed one!
I have been forcibly upgraded (motherboard death) from XP to W7 - I have reinstalled Money 2005 from CD and am trying to open my last backup file. All goes well until I am asked for a location for the copy restored file that Money wants to create. It then insists that it can't find the location, even though I actually browsed to a valid one!
Error message is:
Money cannot locate 'C:\Users\xxx\Documents\Accounts\xxx2013' or cannot open it, possibly because it is a read-only file, or you do not have permission to change it, or your disk drive is write-protected.
If you have chosen the correct file and it cannot be accessed, you will need to click OK and open your most recent backup file.

I removed the "read-only" attribute on the file - oh and I'm in the UK, if that makes a difference.

Many thanks in advance for any help. . .

So I fixed and upgraded a computer for a friend; they got a new HDD so I formatted it, threw XP on, copied over email archives, spyware protection, firewall, all the normal stuff.

Well it turns out they use Microsoft Money for taxes. It also turns out that they lost the installation CD, they don't have the original download link for the installation (they bought it online), and Microsoft has ended support for that program.

Well, I should back up here; they have three drives: C, E, and F. C is the new drive, E is irrelevant, and F is an old IDE 30Gig that has the original installation of Microsoft Money. I copied over all the files in hopes that I might be able to get it running, but unfortunately it crashes.

I did everything I can think of to get this stupid program up and running, but it always crashes on me. Is this a registry issue? If so, where can I export individual portions of the registry from a disk I can't boot into? If this isn't a registry issue what needs to be copied over to get this program running?

A:Microsoft Money SNAFU

Copy the serial key from the installation and install the Demo and try accessing the data files for Money, if that works then try putting in the Serial key to make it a full working copy.

1.) I understand that Microsoft Money will no longer be available, or is no longer available as a purchasable product with the last retail version being 2006. If users have MM files from purchased versions of MM and want to continue to use the software, is there anything they can or should do when moving to a new computer in the future?

2.) Can you get a new version of MM through MS on-line? How will users transfer their old files into this on-line version?

3.) Will MS Money 2004 work on Windows Vista? (I currently have Windows XP.)

New user of cd burner. Attempting to backup ms money files but get message "Money cannot locate backup.mbf or cannot open it possibly because it is a read only or your disk drive is write protected. If you have chosen the correct file or it cannot be accessed, you will need to open your most recent backup file"

My file is none of the above. File goes to CD burner disk okay but then I can't open it unless I have the current backup open on hard drive. I want to re-install Windows 98 so would lose the hard drive files and then how would I open the CD?

Hope this makes sense to someone. Thanks

A:Microsoft money 99 backup

Hiya and welcome

Is it on a CD? All files on a CD are Read Only.Copy it to a hard disk and change the file attribute there.

So, if you were to reinstall Windows, you should be able to change the attribute again, in Windows, and use it.

Can you check the file on another PC?

The tax man cometh..... to beat me in my dumb head with an idiot stick if I can't get that miserable Money program to cough up my data.

The program (Money) used to require a "Passport ID" to sign in to their online services, then this Windows Live ID thing took over and for me has never worked right. Now I can't get into my current or backup Money files with the Live ID, the Passport ID or any other #*%& ID. I've wasted January trading emails with Microsoft support? with no progress, other than it is a month closer to the April deadline.

Does anyone know if there is anyway to get my financial data from either a backup or the current file without the current Live ID password, or a way to extract the data independent of the money program?

I know the Passport ID from awhile back, and I have backup disks from the time that password was "the one". I would appreciate any help or guidance. I really don't want to have to re-create a decade of financials or be on the "audit for life" list.


It just kills me that some hacker in Outer Mongolia can probably empty my bank account quicker than I can post this message but I can't get my own data from that miserable program. Urrrrr. The IRS and Microsoft, humm, "compassionate"?, "user-friendly"? OMG, I'm so up the proverbial creek.

Whilst trying to restore my money 2005 back up to a new computer, I keep getting the message "money cannot locate ..... or cannot open it, possibly because it is a read-only file or you do not have permission to change it or your disk is write protected". It doesn't matter whether I try restoring it from my back up or a new file - still the same message. I've tried copying the file from my thumb drive onto C:drive but still the same message. Any suggestions? BTW I am the computer administrator.

Hi welcome to the forum,
I have never used Money or whatever, but my question to you.
Is it the same OS as your prevous Computer?
Windows 7 stores things in a different place so maybe the file contians a link to it's original location so it won't be able to find whatever it's looking for.
Have you tried importing the data instead of copying it an opening it?

I am having a few issues with money 2005. Can any one recommend a programme that is similar to money but at a reasonable cost or free. Thanks in advance

A:Microsoft money 2005

If you want a free solution, it's online with Quicken (well, online they call it Mint but it's from the same people). Here's the link: Free Personal Finance Software, Budget Software, Online Money Management and Budget Planner |

If you prefer to keep it on your desktop, Quicken is excellent (and what I use) - though it does go for $40 (possibly more for S&H) if you choose the cheapest outlet for the basic edition - more if you want additional options. Here's the link: Quicken Deluxe 2010 - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET

Here are four free financial managment software options (including mint mentioned above) which you can review to see which, if any, fits your needs: Free Personal Finance Software: Top 3 Free Online Finance Software Programs.

Finally, while this is a bit overwhelming in terms of the number of options - I've sorted to show just the free ones but you can expand the search if you want - here's a very comprehensive list of options to review: Personal Finance Software - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET With 26 pages of listings, it's almost manageable - the full listing including options that aren't free is 883 pages!

If you're looking for free, then I'd recommend Mint simply because it's from the makers of Quicken so it's likely to have similar features and options (and I consider them very good - but I haven't tried the online version myself as I have the desktop product so ... Read more

Hi, I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask this question, but here goes. I should point out I'm reasonably computer basic literate, but not to technical.

After many happy years of working with XP, finally decided to purchase a new Desktop with Microsoft 8.1. I'm now in the process of moving files, data, etc.

My problem is : I have installed Via disc Microsoft Money 2001 successfully, however, I do not know where to find the data history files to copy to my new computer.

i would appreciate any help, as I would like to keep the history of money transactions.

Thanking you

A:Microsoft Money 2001

By default, my version of Money saved the data in a folder named "My Money" under the "Documents" (or "My Documents") folder. I think I had the 2004 version, however. Don't know if earlier versions did the same. In any case, I'd search your old computer disks for a "My Money" folder. Another possibility: It might be in the Programs folder where Money is installed.

By the way, when Microsoft "retired" Money, they made a Money Plus Sunset version available. It's available for download if you want to upgrade from your 2001 version. Download Money Plus Sunset Home and Business from Official Microsoft Download Center

I had Microsoft Money Plus trial loaded and it had expired.
I then tried to load Money 2006 to open some old files.
It would not load and I got an error message "Autorun.inf file is corrupt or missing".
I then loaded Quicken 2009 only to find that I needed Money loaded to import the Money files.
I tried then to load Microsoft money Plus again and I got the same error message "Autorun.inf file is corrupt or missing".
I have since tried many times to load Microsoft Money, turned off the Anti virus, removed Office Enterprise. and still the same message.
I downloded twicew the new Sunset version of Microsoft Money and still I get the same error message, "Autorun.inf file is corrupt or missing".
I have downloded Microsoft Installer clean and ran that still same error message.
I have run Reg Clean , makes no difference.
Can anybody please assist?

How are you trying to install Microsoft Money?
Instead of allowing the CD to start automatically when inserted, in the hope that the setup will start, have you tried to browse the cd and double click the setup or install application?

Hi all!

Will try to keep this short. Last summer I have Money 2000, used it for years. One day I loaded it and during initializing it just closed down and would never open again. I uninstalled it, installed it, ran virus checker, etc. Nothing worked.

Decided to buy the new one. Installed it, worked fine for about 3 days then the same thing happens. It starts to load then it just closes out completely. I am thinking maybe a conflict with something else, but I do not know how to narrow anything down. I could not tell you if or what I may have installed that summer and what not.

Oh and on the new version, after it closes it asks to do a recovery check or whatever and when I do it, it does not find anything wrong.

Any ideas where to start? Everything else on my computer works fine as usual. Oh and I am running Windows XP Home Edition, last I did not have service pack 2, but these last few months I have installed it. I have not tried to redo Money since that, and am not even sure if that would make a difference.

Any and all ideas would be greatly appreciated. I tried to look at Microsoft's site for information but nothing remotely close to what I searched for came up.

Thank you all in advance and have a wonderful week.
