Exception: Unable to cast object of type 'System.Configuration.Internal.ConfigurationManagerInternal' to type 'System.Configuration.Internal.IConfigSystem'

Q: Exception: Unable to cast object of type 'System.Configuration.Internal.ConfigurationManagerInternal' to type 'System.Configuration.Internal.IConfigSystem'

Hi,
I apologize if this is not the right section, this seemed to be the most suitable.
I am using a 3D Connexion mouse and when I try to execute an executable file for the software configuration, I get the following error?
"Exception: Unable to cast object of type 'System.Configuration.Internal.ConfigurationManagerInternal' to type 'System.Configuration.Internal.IConfigSystem'"
I've talked with the mouse vendor and they have no idea. My OS is Win7 64. Does anybody know what this is?

Hi, I have pop up error message Unable to cast object of type 'System.Boolean' to type 'System.String'" comes up every time windows 7 started...
So I check the msconfig if some start up software has error but I couldn't find anything.
I unchecked all start up application and reboot it but still have error message.
So I go event viewer then I found the error happened in the same time I start up the windows 7 so this might be the one.
This is info for error I got.

Log Name:Application
Source WMI
Event ID 10
Level : error
Event filter with query "SELECT * FROM __InstanceModificationEvent WITHIN 60 WHERE TargetInstance ISA "Win32_Processor" AND TargetInstance.LoadPercentage > 99" could not be reactivated in namespace "//./root/CIMV2" because of error 0x80041003. Events cannot be delivered through this filter until the problem is corrected.

Is there any way to fix this error so that pop up error might stop??
Thank you!

Hello good people,

I recently installed a software called "CheVolume" which is very handy as it allows you to split the audio on your computer.

AFAIK, the installation itself was smooth and problem free. But when I open it, it gives me an error message which reads:

Error: Unable to cast object of type
'System.Configuration.Internal.ConfigurationManagerInternal' to type
'System.Configuration.Internal.IConfigSystem'.

After some searching, I believe it may be a .NET Framework problem. I already have the latest one installed (I think 4.5, but I'm not sure how to check it) as I downloaded it from the Microsoft website and tried to reinstall, but it tells me that I don't need it.

I'm out of ideas, so I would really appreciate your help.

Thank you for looking.

A:Software problem - Error: Unable to cast object of type

Yes, you can take that hard drive out of the 2k machine and read it just fine in Vista. What you can't do is take your OS drive from 2k and boot another machine with it, but I don't think that is what you were asking.

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.

About 6-8weeks ago (guesstimate) I started getting a random window popup at various times while browsing online. The semi-odd thing about it is #1-same type of popup on both ie & my Chrome browsers; #2- I hadn't downloaded/installed anything around then; #3 I havenot been able to find their source; #4- Have not found any scan (malwarebytes, Panda, pcpitstop, etc) that seems to locate it, nor does my Winpatrol. The popup windows vary in advertisers, but most frequent is for the game "Big Farm". They are always fullsized page & open in a new window (not just a new tab), without my regular menu/toolbar, etc on top. I did notice a little icon right before the url it shows at very top, clicked it & got a menu-thing showing the permissions of the settings, etc & I could click to view cookie data (in which I was thinking "yippee I got it", lol)... I can "remove" & "block", however each time I can make sure I do all of the however it doesn't seem to help because in a little bit "poof" it comes up just as before! Of course it can get irritating!

Hi,

I am trying to return the sorting and layout of "This PC", to the way it was in Windows 7.
I have used the reg file from these forums (thanks everyone for this by the way ), to remove the folder list, and now I want to group the icons by device type.

In Windows 7, internal drives would be in one group, removable drives and DVD drives would be in another, and Network locations would be in a third.

The closest I can get to this, is to sort by filesystem, which puts FAT USB drives at the top, then my internal NTFS drives, then UDF discs, and then I have apple's photostream icon.

Is there a reg tweak to allow me to achieve the sort I am after?

Many thanks to all you hard working forum posters who investigate all this kind of stuff!!

Hi     Whilst in a disscusion with my "what I don't know about computers isn't worth knowing" nephew about start up and boot procedures I mentioned that I'd heard that using System Configure can if your not careful can have serious concequences. He asked how? I said I don't know exactly it just what I'd heard and then just this week a post on the Microsoft community site alluded to this very subject and it said that using Sysyem Configuration unless you know what your doing can even render your PC inoperable and suggested you access it through Contana for eg rather than directly from your system. It said type msconfig in search box (my stuff) and accessing it from here is a safer way. I accessed it by this method and it launched the same box as if you'd accessed it direct, my point is whats the difference as unlike my nephew  there are masses of things I don't know, and is it true?

so windows does not show your* email address* on the* logon* screen*. Works till logon then you see your "test" revert back to your email address*.Where/what are the files/dependencies to run metro. Mostly interested where the data is stored to indicate the metro UI to minimize upon switch to desktop and where the image files are stored for the backdrop (similar to the web folder, not sure if they use a .dll or res file instead based on the set list provided by default).

Read the Key at top of page. Use the Search box to check all your entries

When you reboot you will get a message saying you have started in "Selective Startup" Click "Don`t show this message again" then OK

Hi Guys.Ive just update my old computer and I'm now in possession of a Toshiba A350 laptop running Vista home premium.I have masses of icons in my task bar and wanted to reduce my boot up time as it seems to take quite a while.Could you tell me if there is anything in the sys.config. start up list that I shouldn't uncheck ?I have a total of 44 items checked at the moment which seems quite high to me.Any advice welcome.Thanks.

A:system configuration

What are those "masses of icons" in your task bar? You could probably stop most or ALL of them. 44 does sound like a lot of useless garbage. I have Ultimate, and I only have 23 items to check or uncheck in start up, of that i think i have around 18 or 19 checked. The only thing made by Windows or Microsoft in my Start-up menu (in sys config) is Media player, and I have it turned off.

Can you give us a screen shot or a snip of what you have going on?

In System configuration in the "services" tab, I have so much stuff "running". I want to know which ones I really need running and which ones I can stop?

A:System Configuration

When going into "msconfig" from the run minu you can click on the "startup" tab and disable all without any problems. This will quicken your boot time. The system config is one you will have to do a Google search in order to find the programs you can and cannot remove, it is time consuming, but in order to do it wright that is what you are going to have to do if YOU plan on removing any of the programs yourself. You may find a link that has a list of programs you can remove, but depending on your system you still have to research before shuting down a program. Sorry, but there is no real easy way to do this, at least That is what I found myself doing.
PS, Do a google search for (programs to remove in sys. config), see what happens.

A hard drive doesn't require any special programs in there, should be no problems with throwing a 3TB drive inside of your system. All you need to do is buy another SATA cable for the hard drive, those are cheap and plentiful.
Just be sure you have an empty hard drive bay to put the drive in and it's seated properly during/after installation.

does anyone know if there is a way to hide or remove a program from the System configuration utility in the start-up box without shutting down the program. I want to keep a program running but don't want anyone to see what it is running. I have a keylogger running to keep an eye on what/who my kids are talking to, but there very smart and know how to shut it down from the System configuration start up. So please if anyone knows how i can accomplish this please help. Thank you.
 

A:System configuration utility help.

I believe you can't run this utility unless you are the ADMIN. Make USER accounts for the kids. They can't access MSCONFIG. But then, if they know the process name of the program, then Ctrl+Alt+Del may allow them to end it anyway. Might be a 3rd party software that can do what you want.

I am trying to remove Norton Antivirus 2005 from Windows XP, but can not remove it from the Control Panel Add/Remove Programs option. The instructions I received from Norton recommends that I begin at Start, Run, enter "msconfig" and then proceed through the Systems Configuration Utility window by making sure that "ccApp" is checked. My problem is that I can't get the SCU window to stay open when I enter msconfig into the Run box. It only appears for a brief second.

Anybody have any suggestions?

Thanks!

Hi clw and welcome to BC

The fact that msconfig won't stay open is a classic sympton of spyware. When that happens you can't usually access regedit.exe from Run or your Internet Options from the Tools menu in IE.

I have XP, IE6, and M Office 2003.

I do run>MSconfig and msconfig comes up. I deselect several programs in the startup and services tabs and exit, so the window comes up saying I have to restart my computer for the changes to take effect. I click restart and the computer reboots. On my desktop comes a window about the System Configuration Utility and how some things have changed. A large section of the window is missing, so that the extreme bottom end of the window is a checkable box that says "Do not show this message again" which I select. However, this System Configuration Utility window pops up every time I boot up my computer. But when I put the computer back in normal mode, the window doesn't pop up on reboots. What's going on?

I didn't see a "combined" or "system" thread so hopefully I've chosen the correct place for this post. If not, please point me to the correct one.

I recently built a new machine and am disappointed in it's performance as compared to my current one. I did a lot of reading before I decided on the particular components in an effort to make the best decisions. I figured if there was a place to find out if I had something mis-configured or get other tips this would be it. Or course Windows boots pretty quick on the new one; that's about the only real improvement I've seen so far though. I know that even though it has 6 cores, the 9010T is a tad slower than the 965 but I'm confident I can increase its speed once I have things running well at defaults.

I don't use either for games. Mostly for Photoshop, Premier (and other video programs) and typical day to day desktop activities. The other day I encoded 4 videos (about 45 min each) on both machines at the same time (each having their own source files to work with) and was very surprised that the old machine did the job 3 minutes and change quicker than the new one. Same software on both. While the machines worked I used Resource Monitor just to get a feel for how things were being used. The SSD on the new machine seems incredibly slow as does the overall performance of the machine. I've done various types of reads / writes using large and small files; none of which im... Read more

A:System configuration performance

Frequently, systems are lack-luster due to too many programs running OR autoupdates.


reduce the system services to only what is necessary
stop all those autoupdate programs
remove the startup applications from your user id profile
3) is easy to find
\users\all users\start menu\programs\startups
also look in yourLoginID {ie substituted it for all users above}
Everything in these folders get started when you logon - - "Do you really need it?"

2) can be found unsing the Taskmgr and look at the names. Once you get a list of these,
you can use Spybot Search & Distroy to stop them.

1) is more complex and needs to be done with care, but is very productive.
Many System Services are not necessary even though MS marks them as autostart.
The correction is to change autostart to manual and the nice part is, they can start if requested. To prohibit starting, change to disable.

System Services are accessed by using run services.msc and you need admin privs.

Was the reason you went into safe mode because you thought you might have a virus? If so, you may want to consider running a portable scanner to see if anything is present. Do you know the name of the program trying to initiate changes?

This can mean a few things. There is a resource conflict of some sort, but the exact sort...

Press F2 to enter setup. Many systems will pop a message up right there telling you what is wrong.

There isn't another message is there? Like 3F8 resource conflict, invalid configuration, press F2?

You said you couldn't dial - so, in Windows Device Manager check what IO and IRQ your Modem and COM ports are set to. When you go into setup with F2 make sure none of the COM ports in there are set to the same numbers.

MCI has to do with communications devices and I believe multi-media as well.

since is has the ".BAK" that would give the impression that it was backed up brolly due to some system changes.

A:System Configuration Utility

I just noticed that I have blank square boxes under startup item and command fields of the system configuration utility under startup items. Has anyone else seen this? If so what is it and how do I get rid of it.

A:System Configuration utility

I just (today) overcame this...I'm not sure at all how it happened or what may have caused it, so I can't really be of much help.

My situation started a couple of days ago when I suddenly had these messages at startup which referred to files which could not be found. I used a combination of Autoruns, msconfig, and regedit...to track down and manually delete any/all references to these two files. My system now boots up normally .

So...I can't tell you what it was or how it happened but I can say that deleting any/all registry and file references took care of it on my system.

I don't think it was malware of any sort, but I'm no expert at determining such.

Hi,
The below message keeps showing up every time I start my computer. I checked to make sure the utility is set to normal mode, which it is, however it keep showing up.
"You have used the system configuration utility to make changes to the way windows starts.

The system configuration utility is currently in diagnostic or selective startup mode, causing this message to be displayed and the utility to run every time windows starts.

Choose the normal startup mode on the general tab to start windows normally and undo the changed made using the system configuration utility.

(box to tick) Don't show this message or launch the system configuration utility when windows start."
I booted in safe mode and used hijackthis to delete the below line, however once I reboot in normal mode it does not show, however the next time I start my pc it comes back.
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [MSConfig] C:\WINDOWS\PCHealth\HelpCtr\Binaries\MSConfig.exe /autoO4 - HKLM\..\Run: [MSConfig] C:\WINDOWS\PCHealth\HelpCtr\Binaries\MSConfig.exe /auto
I have attached my hijackthis log below for you perusal.

I hope you can help me get rid of this annoying popup message.

Thanks.

From your start button select 'run' then type in MSCONFIG.

If you've made any changes to the startup, here's where it will be. If not it may be time to look at malware.

It seems to me that W7's System Protection now functions like the old "Go Back" , which made a backup of one's files, as well as Windows' system files.

How can I configure W7's S P to leave user files [ not only "my docs", but <user>\app data . . . . , favorites, desktop ]?

I used W7's System Protection on my W7 Pro, 32 bit system, to return to a restore point I had made before installing a program, but it either modified or deleted files modified or created after the restore point was made, after uninstalling the program and returning to the manually created restore point.

Does "USERPROFILE" include <user>my documents ?
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa378870(VS.85).aspx

User Account Control was set to minimum.

System is single boot.

System was upgrade from Vista Ultimate 32 bit.

After going to MSConfig, switching the BOOT.INI tab to Safe Mode and rebooting. I then ran Hijack, checked and fixed 04-Global Startup:Winlogon.exe. Then I went back to MSConfig, unchecked Safe Mode and attempted to reboot again. Now I get the following message:

System Configuration Utility
You have used the system config util. to make changes to the way windows starts. This system config util is currently in Diagnostic or Selective start up mode, causing this message to be displayed and the utility to run every time windows starts, choose the normal start up mode on the general tab to start windows normally and undo the changes you made using the system config util.

When other users try to log on they get the following:

System Configuration Utility
An access denied error was created while attempting to change a service. You may need to log on using an Administrator account to make the selected changes.

In the System Configuration Utility "General Tab" it ask to select either the original Boot.INI or the Modified Boot.INI

How do I get all this back to normal without undoing the changes I made to get rid of the trojan?

I am having issues with my computer. My computers OS is Windows Media Center. And the brand of the computer is Gateway. I was having issues with my computer rebooting: like if i would try to shut it down the computer would not respond. So i looked under help and support and it told me to go to "msconfig" and uncheck one of the boxes there. So it told me to uncheck the "Load Services" box. So I did that, and then when I rebooted the computer I got this message that said "You have changed settings in the system configuration utility........you are in diagnostic mode to undo whats been done please go back to normal startup. So i did that and the computer was in the state as if it were in safe mode. And i have no idea what to do. I know there has to be a way to undo this. Also my system restore checkpoints were all deleted so i cant undo with sys. restore. Please help me whoever gets this message. I need help with the computer ASAP. I really appreciate your time. I will be waiting for a reply.

Well you have lost your system restore points if you disabled all the Microsoft services.

In using msconfig, when disabling services, you first HIDE all the Microsoft services.

You should not look like your are in Safe Mode if all previously checked boxes are now checked. If you are, then there is a problem with your display adapter settings. Make sure you are using the same screen resolution and color depth as before.

To check that, right click on the desktop and select Properties > Settings. Typical settings are 1024x768 and 16 or 32 bit color depth.

You can still troubleshoot by using msconfig -- just follow these directions:

CLEAN BOOT TROUBLESHOOTING technique XP

First, restart in Safe Mode if necessary -- (tap the f8 key promptly on startup and choose the Safe Mode option from the boot menu) or Normal mode

Then:

Run msconfig and select the "Services" tab. Check "Hide Microsoft Services" and then disable the rest. Also uncheck "load startup group" on the general page.

Now restart and test the issue at hand

If no problems, run msconfig and recheck half the disabled items on the Services tab. Test again. If the problem recurs, UNcheck half the items you just checked to narrow down the culprit.

In XP Home I have some programs that open at bootup that I don't want anymore. I went into the System configuration utility program and clicked on the Startup tab. I unchecked quite a few of them and then rebooted and it worked, they don't appear at bootup anymore, but they are still in the Startup program in the system configuration utility program. I tried highlighting and then right clicking to click on delete but it gives no option to delete them. How can I get them out of the Starup folder?
Thanks, Jim

A:system configuration is gone from computer

Hello Cola,

See if typing msconfig in the Start Menu search box and press enter to have it open.

You can also add a shorcut of the program that you want to run at startup in the Startup folder in the Start Menu for this. See OPTION ONE in the tutorial below for more on this.

Startup Programs - Enable or Disable

Hope this helps,
Shawn

When I boot up I get the following message after the desktop initializes:

""You have used the system configuration utility to make changes to the way windows starts.

Choose the normal start up mode on the general tab to start windows normally and undo the changes you made using the system configuration utility.""

I need to know how to get to the general tab to make the changes mentioned above. I have no idea where this utility or the general tab is. All help appreciated.

When that message appears, click the "don't show this message again" box.

Anytime you use MSCONFIG to UNselect startup apps, you get this (annoying) message.
