"500 - Internal server error" message while trying to download BIOS upgrade file

Q: "500 - Internal server error" message while trying to download BIOS upgrade file

Hello Toshiba support

I have a Toshiba Satellite SA60 - 122 MODEL NO. PSA60E - 09505XPT and I need to upgrade its BIOS

I went to http://www.toshiba.eu/support/drivers/laptops/ and choose "Archive" (see screenshots attached for all options), and it returns 2 results... both give

500 - Internal server error.

There is a problem with the resource you are looking for, and it cannot be displayed.

Direct link for http://support.toshiba-tro.de/tools/...a.asp?ID=39020

Is there a problem with your server? Can you fix it so I can download the file?

Every time I try to download a file from the internet, I get the message cannot download [file]...the server connection was reset. I'm running windows XP Home and IE v6 (as i can't download 7 yet!). Security suite is Bitdefender Total Security 2008.

I have seen this same issue posted on other boards before but I can't seem to get any of the recommended solutions to work.

Can anyone help?
 

A:File download issue: Message "The server conncetion was reset"

I think the first thing to address is why can't you down load IE7. Are you running XP with Service Pack 2 (SP2) ?

Have you tried another PC ? Could be the site has a problem.

HELP!!!

Every time I download a winamp skin from their site it comes up with the error message stated in the subject after it has downloaded 99% of the file!

When downloading, the file is temporarily placed in here:

"C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\6j8XMZO1\filename"

Is it just because I am not logged in as an administrator, or is it something else???

How can I overcome this problem???

Cheers )

A:Error message "Access to the specified device, path, or file is denied" when download

It is indeed probably because you are not logged in as the Admin. When you download skins for Winamp, they self extract and install to the proper directory. Sounds like the skin is coming down OK but when it goes to extract and install, it stops as you don't have access.

Hi,

I need to read some rss from the internet; so am using the System.Net.WebRequest / System.Net.WebResponce method.
However whenever I compile and run, I get an error on the System.Net.WebResponce line saying "The remote server returned an error: (500) Internal Server Error." Now I am able to get to the rss through IE so I do not know what is happening.

Code is below:

Code:
System.Net.WebRequest myRequest = System.Net.WebRequest.Create("http://d1.com.au/d1xmltv.asmx/GetPrograms?channelid=free.Sydney.10&date=2006-02-27");
System.Net.WebResponse myResponse = myRequest.GetResponse();
Using, MS Visual C# 2005

Any Ideas why this is happening?

Thanks in Advance

This issue has plagued me for many, many years. Across WinXP and Win7, Outlook 2000, 2010 and 2013, 3 different AV programs, 2 different ISP's - DSL and Cable, automatic send/receive or manual, short server timeout or up to 5 minute server timeout. I currently use Bitdefender and have it set to NOT scan incoming email.

I often get email errors like "Your e-mail server rejected your login. Verify your settings... The server responded: -ERR Internal Server error'. These errors are always only on the receive side, never any issue with sending. I have multiple businesses and check 10 or more accounts with each send/receive. Sometimes I might go days or week with no issue, sometimes one or two accounts only will give me issues for a few days then go away. Right now I have 3 accounts giving me fits non-stop.

This is driving me crazy!! Does anyone have some other suggestions???

I work remotely through an F5 VPN with RSA dual authentication.  Once inside the firewall and into the intranet, I run RDC and connect to my work computer.  This has worked without fail for a year, but a couple of days ago, even though I VPN in
with no trouble and have access to other features and locations within the company's intranet, when I click Connect on the RDC dialog box, I get "An Internal Error has Occurred."  If I try "edit" on the RDC, it shows my internal userID
and asks for my pwd.  Then it gives me the same Internal Error message.  It doesn't seem to find the computer through RDC even though ping and tracert do see it. I spent hours on the phone with company tech support and they assured me the remote
box is on and they were able to remote into it.  I can also ping and tracert the remote box while VPN is active - I just can't connect.  No changes have been made in any configuration since it was set up over a year ago.
I need ideas on how to debug this as it seems to be on my home client machine.  Are there any diagnostics or tools I can use to try to find the problem?  I need this ASAP to be able to work.

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.

O.S. = Windows 7, 64-bit. Browser = Firefox 3.6.28

PROBLEM: I cannot download any applications from any website.

When I click on a website's "download" button, I immediately get a message box which says
" "C:\Users\[my name]\AppData\Local\Temp\[for example]wfxiIAci.exe.part" could not be saved, because you cannot change the contents of that folder. Change the folder properties and try again, or try saving in a different location".

When I checked ownership, "Users" was "Administrators"; "my name" was either "System" or "my name"; "AppData" was "System"; "Temp" was probably "System".

I followed the instructions on a Microsoft "technet" webpage to change the ownership of the tree "C:\Users\[my name]\AppData\Local\Temp" to "Administrators". This did not allow the downloads
or change the message.

Also, the Properties/Security box of my "C:\Users\[my name]" folder includes the Users "Unknown Acct = S-1-5-21-879640176-2077098734-2292519611-1001"

"DHCP server unreachable" error message.
Could you please help me?

I have a crossover cable between my laptop and my home PC, with my laptop as the main computer. I have the laptop IP set to 192.168.0.1, and the Home PC to 'Obtain and IP address Automatically'.

This set up actually worked for some time. Sometimes, when I open up the command prompt and type in 'ipconfig', it gives me a 168.xx.xx.xx address, and I just type in 'ipconfig /release' and 'ipconfig /renew' and after a minute of waiting, I used to get a 192.168.0.XX address. After this, I was able to share the Internet Connection between the 2 computers, the files etc.

But of late, I have not been able to get this 192 IP address. After typing in 'ipconfig /release' and 'ipconfig /renew', after a minute of waiting, I get a "DHCP server unreachable" error message.

I have tried restaring the PC etc etc, but I continually get this same message. I can ping 192.168.0.1 from the Home PC if I put in a 192.168.0.2 address on the Home PC, and I can even share files.... but I am NOT able to share the Internet connection!!

Please suggest what needs to be done. Thank you!!

Any help at all is welcome.
 

A:"DHCP server unreachable" error message.

perhaps ur IP has detected this. Could this possibly be not allowed by ur ISP? If so, your ISP probably did something to keep you from doing this. Also, for better results, use a router it works much better and you are usually always garunteed 100% uptime and no problems.

Hi, I am currently based in Germany and cannot work out why I cannot access 2 associated websites:
Virgin Blue Airlines : www.virginblue.com.au
Velocity Rewards (reward program of Virgin Blue Airlines): velocityrewards.com.au

Error message always received when I try to get onto the above 2 sites:
?DNS error occurred. Server cannot be found. The link may be broken.?

For reasons that I cannot understand, I have never been able to log on to them from my laptop at home in Germany.

However, when using the same laptop in Australia with a different internet service provider, there is no problem with accessing the above sites so I know that I can reach the websites with this laptop.

I have tried many things including calling the airline directly to see if they have an IT help desk or if they are experiencing website problems. No to both. I have tried typing in the addresses directly into the URL field, clicking on through a link etc and nothing works. As far as I can see, the websites aren?t blocked by my antivirus software. I do not have problems accessing any other websites.

Hi there,

Sometimes ISPs block certain sites. It may be worth checking with them to see if there is a block on it for some reason.

You could also try going onto a proxy surf site and accessing it from there incase the site has blocked your IP for some reason.

This has happened to me about 5 times in the last 3 months. Last week my cpu crashed and I had to reformat my hard drive to get it working again. (Thanks to the help of this forum.) Now I'm getting everything back to normal and I get home today and it has recovered from a serious error, again.

System recovers from serious error and when I send error report this is what it tells me :

Consider BIOS upgrade

Microsoft is unable to determine the exact cause of this error. However, this problem was most likely caused by an error in your computer?s random access memory (RAM). RAM is the main internal storage area the computer uses to run programs and store data.

During the crash analysis, we noticed the basic input/output (BIOS) system version on this computer does not match the specifications for the central processing unit (CPU), also known as a processor, that is installed on your computer. This can occur when a newer processor is installed on an older system board or older BIOS. Using a BIOS that does not support the installed processor can result in Windows system crashes. Contact your computer manufacturer or motherboard manufacturer for an updated version of BIOS for your computer's processor.

Additional information

Important: Upgrading the BIOS version may require moderate to advanced troubleshooting skills. If you are uncomfortable with performing these steps, you might want to consider consulting with paid technical support.

This is driving me bonkers and I have almost no hair left. I really hope someone can help.

When I attempt to copy or move a file or folder from my Win7 box to my WinXP (SP3) media server, the operation nearly always fails. Take, for example, my trying to copy the VLC Media Player folder (704 files, 75.1 MB) from Program Files on Win7 to the C: drive on the media server via a mapped drive (X). In all cases, after hanging up at some point during the copy, I get this message:

Network Error
There is a problem accessing X:\<whatever current sub-folder copying is>
Make sure you are connected to the network and try again

I should note here that you only see the message come up if you wait for it (~1 min) after the copy hangs. If you try to cancel the hung copy before the message comes up, you can crash explorer.exe. I must also stress that there are no other access problems on the network. Files on the media server are accessible as expected from the Win7 box. Performing the same copy in reverse ("pulling" the same folder to the XP box from its console instead of "pushing" from Win7) works perfectly. All machines are in WORKGROUP and the same exact credentials are in use on all machines. All machines run the same version of Symantec Endpoint Protection and have firewall rules configured to allow all LAN traffic. All machines are connected through a Linksys SD2005 5-port GB "dumb" switch. Routing/DHCP is provided by a D-Link DI-604. ... Read more

I am using FileZilla FTP server app (version 0.9.23 beta). I am receiving a "450 internal error" in the logfile for a file transfer from outside of my network. Here's the scenario; A file is requested, retrieved and sent in a queue. As soon as the request is made, the remote site sends a test file to test the connection & login info (this works fine). Then later when the file is retrieved on the other end, it is sent. Here's where I am having a problem. It appears that the file starts (I can see the connection in the Filezilla Server Interface) and it starts transferring (I can see kbs moving). Then at some point it just stops transmitting & receiving.

The logfile shows the starting file starting but then no further entries.

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.

 

A:Solved: Excel error message: "This file is not in a recognizable format"

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.

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.

When I trie and save a file from the command prompt using an application such as a text editor, or word processor (dos based) I received the above message. 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:

» You may be trying to create or write to a file on a drive that is read-only, such as a CD-ROM or a read-only network drive.
» You may be trying to overwrite a file that is read-only.
» You may be trying to access a file that is locked by another user or program.
» You may be trying to read or write to a directory name.

The situation is this: I can only save a file if I rename that file (using save as.) I've made sure that this happens with or without long file names. I've have 3 hard drive installed and the same thing happens on all the drives and in root and sub directories. I've used different DOS based programs in CMD.EXE console including MS Edit; Wordperfect 5.1; and PEDIT (among others) all showing the same behavior.

There is no problem in Windows based programs. I have not changed my environment variables, etc. The behavior was sudden and it's still continuing.

I must rename the file in order for it to be saved, then copy it at the prompt to the file name that I really want. I'... Read more

I'm trying to repair Windows XP on my laptop (because I got the blue screen of death and a bunch of my drivers don't work) by booting it from the original Reinstall Service Pack 1 disk that came with my laptop. I click setup, and then repair, get partway through and get the "files asms needed" message.

I tried this fix, which was posted on one of these forums previously:
"The machine is not communicating with the CD-ROM.
When the message appears, type: Shift+F10 to enter a command session.
Type: regedit.exe at the prompt.
Highlight the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE entry.
Go to the File menu and choose Load Hive.
Then, load %Windir%\System32\Config\System.sav
Give it a short name that you will remember, like "Test".
Then, find this key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Test\ControlSet1\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
Delete UPPERFILTERS and LOWERFILTERS keys.
Do the same for ControlSet2 and any other numbered ControlSet keys you see.
Exit regedit."
I do the first five steps, no problem. My problem is that when i look for the key, under ControlSet001, there is no such key -- no control or class folders, just a services folder. I make the changes under controlset002 and 006, then exit regedit. The error message remains. I click Ok and nothing happens. I click "cancel" and it gives the setup a fatal error. I've also tried changing the drive to d:/ or e:/, with no luck.

Help! How do I get past this?

My laptop isn't starting, I get the blue screen with the following error message:

The registry cannot load the hive (file): \SystemRoot\System32\Config\SOFTWARE or its log or alternate its is corrupt, absent, non writable

I've had a look through some related posts here and tried:

3)I'm concerned about all my personal files/folders/pics etc being deleted or overwritten, obviously I can't start my laptop to access them now to perform a backup to external hard drive, is there a way of performing a back up before I do any of the manual steps to recover?

When I try to move a folder into another folder (sub-folders into the main "MY DOCS" folder, I get the error message: "The action can't be completed because the folder or a file in it is open. Close the file and try again."

NO, no other folders are open; went to task manager and made sure. No backup running. I've tried a web search others have had this issue. The suggestion was to empty the temp folder, but this didn't help.

Any advice? This happens for ANY folder I try to dump into the main one.

Dear Fellow Members,

It has been some time since I have been able to get back on line, even briefly. Let me begin with a description of the circumstances which prompted this post.

I received a series of 32 .rar downloads (made using a good, high speed connection and under optimal conditions), which contain what I believe is a full DVD (sent as an .iso file) of a cultural event from the person who made the recording, of an event in which he was a participant, and for which he owns the rights. This does not relate to any sort of illegal file sharing.

When I tried to extract the .iso file, the file extracts fully and (apparently) completely (the counter goes up to 100%), but at the end (only after the file has extracted 100%) I consistently received the following WinRAR error message:


"CRC failed in the encrypted file xxx.iso (wrong password?)."


The password was correct (I have had experience that when the password is actually incorrect, the opening sequence will not initiate in the first place); the resulting .iso file (saved because I asked WinRAR to "keep corrupted files") is the full size of the file which was sent. According to what I have been able to read on line (and, again, from past experience), WinRAR should be able to indicate which of the files is corrupt during the extraction process (I have subsequently tested the archives several times in an attempt to find what is wrong), but no problem with any of the files has been i...

A:WinRAR Error Message "CRC failed in the encrypted file"

CRC error means that the file is unreadable and or corrupted, probably just the last tidbit. You can try to open the ISO file with MagicISO but if Alcohol didn't open it, this probably won't either.

Yesterday when I switch on my computer, it automatic diskcheck on my E disk. I have 3 HDD, which is C: (My main partition, installed Windows on this HDD), D: is for all my game files (Installed games) and E: is for all my music, movies, game installer, software etc.

So back to the point, when I switch on my computer, and get to the "Windows is Starting", and it stuck right there for about 5-10 minutes. Firstly, I have no patient so I restated the computer, and second or third time also have the same problem. So I choose to wait patiently, after 5-10 minutes, it have a black screen for about 1 to a few minutes, then it started the disk check on my E drive.

I have 3 HD's running. Two (NTFS) internal and one (FAT32) external.

A 300GB (NTFS) with about 14GB of free space.
A 60GB (NTFS) with 9GB of free space.
A 160GB (FAT32) with 149GB of free space.

I am getting this error message while trying to transfer a 4GB Movie from the 300GB HD to the 160GB HD saying "Error copying file or folder, There is not enough free disk space". Obviously there is enough disk space on the target drive for the movie but for some reason or another it doesn't think so. Windows also recognizes that there is the correct amount of space available, it only says there isn't when I try to transfer.

I tested transferring with other files and it works fine, its just that file. I also tried transferring it to the 60GB HD and it worked without any problems.

My questions are:

Is there something wrong with the file?

Is it that there isn't enough room in a temporary folder for it to transfer a file that big?

Is it the fact that they are different file systems?

Is there something wrong with my HD?

Or is it something that i'm not thinking of?

Thanks for your help. Sorry if this post is in the wrong section, I thought it was the most appropriate.
 

A:XP "Error copying file or folder" message

Thankfully you didn't try "moving" it, sometimes from doing this it vanishes from the source (as wanted) and never gets to the destination (due to out of memory error)

I've seen this myself, it's to do with system resource on your PageFile amount of Ram being used and the CPU coming in trying to process it all.

In most cases I have run CCleaner first then copied the large file(s) across without fuss.
It's just all the temp files together and Windows thinking that memory is low when it's just the processing of this memory in a temporary location (being %temp% usually)

I am experiencing a problem that only recently started occurring. While connected to the internet, it works fine for the first 2.5 hours. After that time my internet connection dies, and when I click on my wireless adaptor utility to check the status I get the following message: "The IPHLPAPI.DLL file cannot start - Check the file to determine the problem." - and can no longer connect to the internet unless I reboot. Each time I do reboot, however, it is fine for another 2.5 hours and once again the internet connection dies.

I have tried removing and reinstalling my network adapter and software (Syntax USB-400), renamed and reinstalled IPHLPAPI.DLL, scanned my system using SpyBot, Ad-Aware and Norton Antivirus (which are all up to date) and found nothing wrong. I have also followed the suggestion in the MS support link article 823256 which pertains to this issue (although the 'symptoms' in this article refers to 'installation of MS broadband networking hardware') but this has not helped either. It reacts as if there is a set timer causing it to crash every 2.5 hours. Otherwise the system functions perfectly. Is there a resolution anyone can think of that I may be overlooking?

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-

Hi zoel_222 and welcome to TSF.

Firstly we need to fix your ability to reassociate file types for programs. Please follow this link for File Association Fixes for Windows 7. You will want the EXE one.


Quote:




Instructions
To fix the association for a particular file type:

1. Download the corresponding fix from the above table. (Use Right-click – Save as option in your browser to download the fixes.)

2. Unzip the file and extract the .REG file to Desktop.

3. Right-click the REG file and choose Merge. Alternately, you can open the Registry Editor and then using the Import option from the File menu, to merge the REG file contents.

Note that you need to be an administrator to apply these fixes.




Then, you will need to start a new thread in the ' Virus/Trojan/Spyware Help' section and give then all the details they require to help you.

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.

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.

A:IE9 download manager will not display "Open" option (only "Save" and "Cancel" is displayed) for downloading HTML documents.

Hi,
As you know, the Open-Save-Cancel dialog box helps you prevent your computer from affecting by virus while downloading. 
So I suggest you test to reset all zones to a lower level temporarily and then please attempt to download this html attachment again.

However, since you can normally download the other documents, I suspect there is some restriction in the website which you are trying to view. I recommend you to contact the administrator of that website if possible.
could you please send me the link of the website from where you are trying to download the html attachment?

Hi all!  Every so often I get a user (and it is usually the same users) that call with an issue that they cannot download files.  Doesn't matter what type of file.  But when they click download they will get a pop up that the system doesn't
recognize the file and the file name is changed to whatever_exe instead of whatever.exe.
Same thing happens with our auto launch java program.  All of the sudden IE will change the file extension to _jnlp and is then unreadable.  This is not a system wide problem, it is profile specific.
The only fix that I have found is to do a reset of IE from the advanced page (IE options, advanced, reset, then restart machine)
It is great that I finally found a "fix" for it, but I would love to know what the user is doing to cause this to happen!  They have no clue.  Any ideas what causes this???

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.

Hi All.

I'm running Windows 8.1 (standard/ home edition) and can't download a couple .exe files. I get "You'll need to provide administrator permission to copy to this folder". errors. I'm the only user on this computer and have administrator access.

The file resides on mediafire and via my ipad I was able to manage to transfer it to dropbox, but I still get the same error. The filename (partial) is created but no further downloading is done.

I can't take ownership of the file-- it doesn't exist on my computer yet.
I can't change the local security policy (I understand this is only available in Win 8 Pro version).
UAC is already disabled as much as I can figure (via the slider set to never notify).

Short of setting up a super admin account (would this even work?), can anyone tell me how to fix this problem?

thanks in advance,

Frank

I noticed that all the videos I was trying to download were YouTube videos. I know that YouTube does not allow their content to be legally downloaded, so this may be the reason why it is failing.

I did a search for alternatives to RP and found this on CNET: http://download.cnet.com/windows/video-software/

I cannot attest for any of these programs as I have never used any of them.

Hi,

This is my first posting and am not sure if this is the place for it.

I run Mozilla Thunderbird on both my PC and my USB handy Mem. Most of the time I just use the USB instalation. Yesterday I had been using it with no problem then later in the day I opened it up again and got the error message : "Could not connect to mail server ..... the connection was refused."

I tried using the desk top version and that was no problem.

I have done virus checks, malware checks etc. Nothing showed up.
I run the Comodo security S/W; firewall, mem.firewall, BOC anti malware and anti virus. I also regularly clean and defrag my drives.

Today in trying to look at the problem I found that my task manager was disabled by the administrator, I am admin and I had not done so. I found a prog. at www.dougknox.com which repaired that problem.

I have looked through all the firewall settings and for the other s/w and can't see anything that should stop the USB instalation of Thunderbird working.

I run Windows XP Pro SP2

If you need further information to help, please let me know.

Help grately appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Chris
 

A:Arror Message : "Could not connect to mail server ..... the connection was refused."

The problem is solved.

It looks like Comodo Firewall does not like Anvir Task Manager. So I got rid of both and just reinstalled Comodo after making sure all of its hidden files etc. were gone.

I had tried uninstalling etc. before but did not check for remaining files.

Hi all,

Just got my Vista machine from Dell, 2-days ago. Data transfer went smooth, things were going great.

The I started getting "Intel Alert Server Stopped Working" message on every startup.

I think I broke it with trying to load Norton Password Manager, which is not compatible with Vista, so I had to do an uninstall. It was after this reboot, the message started appearing.

Choosing RESTORE from several checkpoints did not work.
Cleaning the Registry, as best I could, did not work.
Googled "Intel Alert Server" nothing useful, from what I saw.
I have since reloaded Norton Internet Security and Money since it appears the the live update on both were also broke.

Two questions:
1. How do I get fixed the "Intel Alert Server" message?
2. Can you recommend a specific Vista-compatible password manager package?

Thanks, Nickie

Since upgrading to Nero 6, I've been getting ongoing "internal error" messages while burning audio. Data & image burns run without a problem. Audio burns will sometimes succeed. I've noticed that the "internal error" problem occurs almost every time I apply filters, and sometimes when I don't apply filters it still happens. The "internal error" message pops up while I'm selecting tracks, and almost always when applying filters. If I get to the point where I start the burn process, I'm home free, with no "internal error" problem. This only springs up during the setting up of an audio burn.

I've had this problem through the last few versions of 6.0. .0023, .0019 and before. Had hoped upgrading would straighten it out, but it hasn't. I've tried different media, not that I think that would be the problem since the error occurs before, not during a burn.

I'm running Athlon 2400, 256 MB DDRAM, WinXP Home.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!

Hi there

I have a home computer running Windows XP with Outlook Express 6 and a laptop running Windows 7 with Outlook 2010.

I have had my pop3 email accounts set up on Outlook Express on the home computer for a long time now and wanted to use Outlook 2010 on my laptop for the SAME email accounts.

What I want is for messages to be downloaded to BOTH laptop AND home computer. I have gone into the account settings on each and ticked "Leave a copy of the message on the server" option on both Outlook and Outlook Express, yet if a message is downloaded on one of them, the other one doesn't pick it up?

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
 

A:Solved: "Leave a copy of message on server" functionality

Once you download the message from a POP3 server, it's marked as read on the server. It's still there, but most POP3 client default to download only unread messages.

If the email service supports IMAP, use that with Outlook 2010 and Outlook Express. IMAP keeps everything on the server was designed for people using multiple mail clients for the same account.

Hi, I've been having some problems with my computer (Win XP home) and wondered if anyone could help out there.
A few weeks ago I left the computer downloading something pretty safe overnight (I've done it several times before) and when I came back in the morning some things were playing up. It doesn't seem to be a virus as the rest of the system is working OK and it doesn't show up on any scans. Most such as problems with the printer spoolers and IE I've managed to sort out but Windows Media Player is still giving me grief. I used to have wmp 10 but when I opened it it said the internal application error message, so I uninstalled it and rolled back to wmp 9. This worked for a while until then it started up the internal application error message. I've tried installing wmp 10 again many many times (including things to it that have been suggested in other forums like moving files to other directories) but it just fails claiming that "to update windows run windows media player 10 setup again". I've tried hundreds of fixes from various internet forums including re-regestring vbscript.dll and jscript.dll, uninstalling and reinstalling wmp via Add/Remove programs and even fiddling with the registry editor but none seem to work.

I have XP with service pack 2 already installed. I tried installing sp3, following all the guidelines about being an administrator, closing all programs, disabling virus scanners and such, but consistently get this "internal error" as soon as the installation starts. The event viewer doesn't say anything useful, but according to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/949384/ this is a problem with a funky product id. The solution is a problem for me, though.

The solution says I should go to the System Properties to get the product id. Well an abstraction of that product id is 69831-xxx-xxxxxxx-xxxxx. Then it tells me to go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\WPA\Key-XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX, and work with the fields in there. It predicts that there might be more than one key conforming to that format, and there is. It says I should pick the key that has the same ProductID as found in the System Properties, but they both have the same id and it isn't what I found in System Properties, it's 55285-xxx-xxxxxxx-xxxxx. What do I do now? I have one product id in System Properties, and another that appears in two keys in the registry.

IF ANYONE HAD EVER ENCOUNTERED THE FOLLOWING SITUATION, PLEASE GIVE ME A HAND. WILL APPRECIATE.

I use the "Outlook Express" for my email for years, no problem.
I had been using ISP for my email server and have my own email account set up, so far so good.
I had checked the box "delete from mail server after deleting from trash" and it works out just good. This is because, no need to log-on the mail server each time to clean up the read emails by hand, this way could release enough space for receiving email. Is because the ISP charge on over-quota space for emails, or just will block excess emails over the allowed space.
The problem started, when a friend told me could set the email folder away from the hard-drive C, I set it as per his suggestion. Then, the "auto-cleaning function" stopped performing.
I asked the ISP and was told because "Outlook Express" is designed by Mircosoft Inc. so they could not help.
Then, I set it back to the "defaulted folder", but the function could not be recovered.
This is quite annoying that I have to log-on the email server and clean up the emails daily by hand.

I made a program for a friend about a year back in Visual Basic.net. She's now changed from using Windows to Ubuntu and has asked if there's any way to get it to run under that system. As I understand it the Mono project is meant to provide some support for .Net in Linux, but isn't as advanced as the Microsoft framework. In order to ensure that I make it mono compatible I've been trying to recompile it in monodevelop and I've resolved all of the errors that appeared. Unfortunately it still won't let me build the project, giving the unhelpful error message
Unexpected Error: there has been an internal error in the compiler (VBNC99999)
On double clicking the message, it complains that there is no file named <MyGenerator> in the project folder. Googling reveals all sorts of very different causes for this message, none of which seems to apply to my program (an encrypted diary).

My code in .net compiles fine with Option Strict on, Option Explicit on, and Option Infer off. However it still doesn't work under Mono.

My Dell laptop is displaying this message upon booting up. I have no idea how to start fixing it or figuring out whether it is fixable.

My dell charger is worn out, and the computer has not recognized it -- it still gets power to the computer, but the computer does not recognize it as a dell charger, and therefor I can run the computer on AC power but it cannot charge. I haven't needed to use my laptop out of my house in awhile so I haven't really worried about it, but can the fact that the battery has been totally drained for awhile (about a week, I think -- and totally drained, if I unplug the charger it turns off immediately) have something to do with it? I have it on a working charger right now trying to revive the battery, but the battery light is not on so I don't think it's even charging.

If trying to charge it doesn't help, what do I do? I can still run setup and the boot menu but I have no idea what to do when running these.

Your post is confusing. Are you talking about the AC adapter (charger) here? If the charger isn't being recognized by the laptop, how is the charger able to power the laptop?

The laptops internal battery is probably dead. They don't last forever. What about this " HDD Error - "Internal Hard Drive not detected"...?"

This means that there is something seriously wrong with the hard drive. This hard drive stores all your data, pictures, email and Operating System

Other than those things, all I can think of is reflash bios or call technical support who are going to probably tell you to flash bios.

For those of you who are interested in using the most currently available SP3 upgrade for Windows XP, this link will provide you with the file for the correct version - 5.1.2600.5508

and this URL at the Microsoft site

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...99-12af-42b2-aab1-b969a62c68a7&DisplayLang=en

are still providing the file for version 5.1.2600.3311, which is the original SP3 RC2 upgrade.

I upgraded today from version 5.1.2600.3311 to version 5.1.2600.5508 in both of my desktops. I have no idea what's new or different between the 2 versions, but I have noticed a snappier response.

(This is for information only and is not intended to encourage users to make the upgrade from SP2.)

I am infected with this crap and have used the following tools to try to get rid of it:
Windows Defender, Unible PowerSuite (SpeedUpMyPC, Registry Booster & Spyware Protector) and Norton's One Button Checkup and WinDoctor.

Not sure if it's related, but my DISPLAY is locked at 640 X 480.

Atempted the 5 Step Process before posting and Panda ActiveScan froze and crashed after scanning 59253 files, but not before identifying 28 spyware files.

Here's my extra.txt log from Deckard's:

Just a weird problem I have on my igoogle page. I have superdigg on it and whenever one of the posts is a link to a picture from the imgur site, I get the following message.

You don't have permission to access /4yDvt.jpg on this server.
VoxCAST Server at i.imgur.com Port 80

If I go to the actual digg site and click on the picture, it accesses it fine. Anyone know why this is?
