# Win 7: The action can't be completed.... error

Q: Win 7: The action can't be completed.... error

G'day, I'm running Windows 7 Home premium on a Dell Inspiron laptop.

When I am trying to organise my music files and folders in my music Library I randomly get this error:

The action can't be completed because the folder or a file in it is open in another program.

But there can be nothing else open, no media player, (neither WMP or Media Monkey which I usually use), or any other window open at all. This is intermittent. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't.

For example; I just discovered that I have a Chris De Burgh folder with a couple albums in it and another folder titled Chris De Burgh - Greatest Hits. I decided to move the latter into the former and rename the latter to simply Greatest Hits. At first it wouldn't copy into the Chris de Burgh folder at all and the dreaded error came up. I clicked on another folder, went back and tried again and it worked. After putting the CDB-GH folder into the CDB one I tried to rename it, (without opening it). The action can't be completed blah blah blah. Retry doesn't work. This time I had to close windows explorer and open it again and browse to the folder and rename it.

Sometimes it works first go, sometimes you have to click elsewhere then come back to it, sometimes you have to close explorer, sometimes it simply refuses until I restart the pooter. I've tried deleting everything in the temp folder, (%temp%) but there are files in here which won't delete either coming up with the same message. I guarantee that the folder or a file in it is not open anywhere else. And it doesn't seem to matter whether I try the action in the left hand folders pane or the right side files pane of the window.

Any ideas for me?
Cheers

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.

I have a couple of Word 7 files which can't be moved, deleted or renamed. Any attempt results in a message: This action cannot be completed as it is in use by another program. It is not in use by any program I am aware of. When I open the file, it says (Read Only) in the title bar but the properties dialogue boxes are not checked as read only. Of course, I can't save any changes to the file unless I go to 'save as' but that still leaves me with an undeletable/uneditable file. I am using Vista Ultimate. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:This action cannot be completed...

Unless you're particularly interested in the mechanics of why this might be happening, I'd suggest booting to safe mode (press the F8 key early during Windows startup) and moving or deleting the files from there. You probably won't have trouble deleting the files that way.

The action can?t be completed because the folder or a file in it is open in another program. I suspect that my anti virus, Norton 360, is stopping me from deleting a specific folder, it happens only in one specific folder.
When I restart my computer, it takes time to the regular background tasks to "wake up", so I can delete it once the computer turns on, but then something stops me from deleting the folder. I am not sure if it is Norton 360, or another problem.
Would it be a Malware?

not positive what it could be ,anything knowing computers .
to see if its Norton 360. disconnect from intern ,disable Norton360 temporally ,how to do so will be in the settings of Norton , after its disable try deleting file.

just found this in google ,how to disable Norton temporally .

Try right clicking on the 360 icon in your notification area. You should be able to disable protection features for a specified time. Remember that you are unprotected while doing this, so you should disconnect from the Internet while doing this. Remember to reset the protection when you are finished.

hi guys,

every single time I try to rename a folder the boring message "The action can't be completed because the folder or the file is in use" appears even if apparently neither the folder or a file in it is in use.

What I have to do is: Task Manager > Explorer.exe > End Process > File > New Task > Explorer.exe and I am able to rename the folder.

It is a really boring process and I find this process really stupid. The folders I am trying to rename are full of pictures, I think it is something related to the Thumbs files.

Anybody of you have the same issue? Any possible solution?

Thanks

This is kind of driving me a bit bonkers now, as I am trying to organize the files on my system, and am consistently butting heads against this problem. It always seems to be the last file I highlight. In other words.. I have two directories open on the screen, and am simply looking to drag files/folders from one directory to another. To do this, you almost always have to highlight the folder you want to move, and doing this seems to put a lock on that folder. If I highlight more folders, it seems to be ok, except for the last one I highlight will always fail to copy.

Any way to prevent windows from locking files in this way?

Help?!?

I installed a driver that I was told I needed by CompanionLink software in order to sync my new Samsung Galaxy phone with my Palm Desktop. I think it was an "adb" driver and it no longer appears to be in the system. In any case, during that process, several programs crashed, including SnagIt, which I now have running again after a reinstall. BUT...now I can't open my Palm Desktop and ALL of my info and contacts are in there. When I try to open it, I get an error message labeled "Server Busy" and the rest of it says "This action cannot be completed because the other program is busy. Choose 'Switch To' to activate the busy program and correct the problem." There's an option to Retry and an option to Switch To, but neither one works. I have to use Task Manager to force quit Palm.exe. I'm rather desperate to solve this as I need the contact information for business. (Windows XP Pro, SP3) TSG Sysinfo run and log is below...

Any help greatly appreciated,

Recently an issue has appeared on my laptop, an HP Pvilion G6 running Windows 7 64 bit with SP1 and all latest updates with an Intel Core i5 2.3 processor and 4.Gb RAM.

Shortly after booting and arriving at the desktop and before opening any programs a dial up connection window opens with no input from myself, prompting me to choose which service I want to connect to followed soon after by anther window with the title ‘Server Busy’ and the following text. ‘This action cannot be completed because the other program is busy Choose ‘Switch to’ to activate the busy program and correct the problem.’ Beneath this are three buttons, from left to right they’re labelled Switch To… , Retry and Cancel. Cancel is greyed out. Pressing Switch To… opens the start menu, presumably to allow me to select the busy program but there’s no indication of which is the problematic program so I just close the start menu. When the start menu opens the Server Busy window closes briefly but reappears after a second and the loop continues. Pressing the retry button makes the window disappear briefly only to immediately reappear. It seems impossible to get rid of this window.

I uninstalled Nokia Ovi Suite which I sometimes use to use my phone as a modem. I thought it was something to do with this because that was the service listed in the Dial Up Connection window. The problem persisted so I performed scans using Avira, Malwarebytes, ... Read more

First, a bit of background. I had just recently installed my Logitech Webcam software, and later on today I've deleted the installer to the recycle bin and am trying to empty the recycle bin. When I do this, I get this message:http://img64.imageshack.us/img64/7600/capturerhf.jpgFirstly, why is this happening in the first place? It's simply an installer? The application itself has installed fine and I should have no problem deleting the installer, right?What does it mean, "because file is open in Application Experience"? What on earth is this?Also, why is the file named "lws201_full.exe", yet in that image I have provided, it's called "\$RX8JXFZ.exe"? Also worth noting that the file is 0 bytes in the image I provided, yet the original file itself is 114 MB . Say what?!The file deletes itself fine if I cancel or try again, but I still don't understand why this happens. Thanks so much for your assistance in clarifying this issue for me.

Hi,
I have been googling this for days now - trying several different suggestions - but cannot find a fix!

I am in the midst of tranferring data from old computer (Windows Vista) to new computer (Windows 7 Pro) and was placing folders/files on network drive to do so. For 95% of the items, it worked like a charm - I would copy onto my new computer and then delete them from network drive.

However I am left with 5 folders with a few files in each that I cannot delete! Error message is:
The action can't be completed because the file is open in another program. Close the file and try again.

I've tried renaming, Unlocker, stopped windows from caching thumbnails, and a few more than I can't even remember!

I am not a computer whiz by any means and am afraid to attempt anymore on my own in case I mess something up!!

Any help would be appreciated - I am all googled out!!!

Thanks!

Whenever I try to move or rename files (or anything else that would change something about it), I frequently get the message "The action can't be completed because the file is open in another program." The thing is, it's not open in any program.

It usually happens immediately after it was open, though. It also usually happens with movie files. So, I'll watch a movie file, close WMP and try to change the filename, and it'll give this message. I have to wait for about two or three minutes before I can change it. It's very frustrating to have to wait every time I need to change a file. Is there a way to fix this?

Hi, I just built a new computer, and it's running XP Pro 64-bit. It ran fine for the first week, but now I'm getting a problem everytime I open "My Computer". Instead of showing my drives, it does the search animation. After a minute or two, it will either find all the drives, or it will say something like "This operation could not be completed because (something) is being used by another program." and gives me two options: "Retry", or "Switch To". When I click "Switch To" it opens my "Start" menu.

A (possibly) related problem is when I open IE, I get shown a set-up menu, but when I click "Save Changes" the webpage hangs. I can bypass this and use the internet fine though. Also, my computer randomly hangs sometimes when playing games.

I'm pretty disappointed with all these errors on what was supposed to be my fresh computer... Any help is appreciated.

I have been trying to backup my C drive in preparation for cloning and installing a larger SSD drive. I am pretty sure that I have backed up my PC using win 7 backup before, but the last time was sometime last year. I previously burned my backup to disc, but this time I decided to backup to my networked My Book Live (2T). Each time I try it, I get the " Windows backup skipped backing up system because one of the critical volumes is not having enough space...". I have searched the "net" pretty extensively trying to find out why. My only feasible guess has something to do with the shadow storage. When it would not backup to the network drive, I tried one of my internal drives ( 465GB w/ 413GB free), with the same results. My C drive (120GB SSD) has 14.3GB free, but I don't know if this would affect it. I have watched the backup program progress and when it gets to 50% complete, it stops and give the error. I have even gone into an elevated command prompt and Typed 'vssadmin list shadowstorage' to look for the max storage space available, but could not find anything for my "G" drive or my network drive. Am I going in the right direction, or should I be looking for something else? If this gets to become more of a hassle than it's worth, I may just bite the bullet and do a fresh install on my new SSD drive. Any suggestions?

A:backup cannot be completed. Insufficient space. Error code 0x81000033

Since you have a WD hdd, download the Acronis Trueimage - free.
This will backup your C drive and allow you to restore it to your new SSD.
A clean install is probably your bet at this time -although either will work.
WD Support
FWIW -If you keep just OS and programs on your current SSD and keep it at about 75%, you can save your money on a larger SSD.

Are there any other antivirus or antispyware programs installed? I have found that that will cause this service to not start since multiple antivirus softwares installed can cause problems.

A:Action Canceled error

9 more replies

Man do I need some help here. I've been having a problem with an error message and it's really making me angry.

As I load a page, sometimes where an ad is supposed to be, I am getting "Action Cancelled" display. Now normally I would just ignore this. However, I play Hamerhead Pool on Pogo and need this error to go away so I can play it. No settings have been changed, security is low, I can accept cookies and still keep getting this. It happens on other pages as well.

Any ideas? Please let me know what you think. Thanks

OK , here's the deal . I am putting together a system for a friend . It consist of

ASUS P4C800-E Deluxe mobo
P4 3.0E
WD 36 gig Raptor
the rest normal stuff

This is my first dealings with SATA . I hooked the SATA hard drive up using the SATA cable . I hooked his CDRW up using the regular IDE cable .

I installed Win XP . It installed ok , np . I then put in the mobo utility disk to load the drivers for the mobo , lan , usb , etc .

When I open my computer , double click on the D: drive the CDRW locks up and I get the error message:
"Only part or a ReadProcessMemory or WriteProcessMemory request was completed"
But , I can right click on the cdrw drive and select open and it will open .

The C: drive opens fine .

I have changed ram , ram slots , CDRWs , the cdrw as Primary Master , primary slave , second master , second slave .
In the BIOS it shows the hard drive as the Third IDE Master . The cdrw is on the Primary or Secondary IDE , depending on the setup I am trying .

I checked the BIOS and I think I have everything setup right , but I dunno .

What am I doing wrong ?

I have windows xp home edition. On websites where banners and ads and sometimes pictures should be, I get an action canceled error. I do not have a pop-up blocker on, all security settings are default, and third party extensions are enabled. This error only occurs in IE6. In my AOL browser, this is not a problem. I hope that somebody will be able to work with me to solve this problem which I have been trying to fix for a month. If anyone else has had this unusual problem and knows how to fix it, please e-mail me at [email protected]. Thanks.

Hi

I'm John

A struggling silver surfer.

Comuter literate, but not a 'techie', and sometimes a bit slow trying to understand the relatively simple jargon.

Yesterday was fine.

Mundane work on this laptop. A bit of Word Processing, check Yahoo and Google [email protected], continue with a MSWorks Database of my family and contacts I'm creating. Oh!, and I also used my BBC IPlayer.

No new installations or apps, tho' there could have been 'background' updating - during the day - of windows, avg, and others I'm always unaware of.

And I have excellent AVG 2011. Think its ver 9.

Booting up today, a surprising pest!...I find lots of errors.

And later as I click each new different task, then continued working, the following, (individual examples) boxes keep flashing up: with the Titles:

.... and so onwith each message the same
"C:\PROGRA~1\Google\GOOGLE~1\GEOC62~1.DLL is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error. Try installing the program again using the original installation media or contact your system administrator or the software vendor for support."
O.K.
From my now lengthy experience of this happening with nearly every click I'm guessing it's a minor problem ...
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
Best regards.

Sometimes when I am trying to do something, I get a popup that says,"You do not have permission to perform that action." Or something along that line. How can this be? I am the administrator of this computer. It is a home computer and no one else lives here to use it. Is there a way to change this setting?Tammy

A:Error Message: You need permission to perform this action

The actual admin account was hidden in Vista and on installation created a user account with admin privileges. You are saying if I understand you, that you unhid the account sometime ago yourself and you are using only the actual administrator account? If that were correct I can't understand why you see those warnings, either.To err is human but to really screw things up, you need a computer!

So today I had a notification from windows action center that I have 2 Video hardware errors. It really didn't give any other info than that other than giving me a couple of very long log files that mostly just seemed to list all my devices and everything on the computer. It gave me a .dmp, a sysdata.xml and a werinternalmetadata.xml logs for both errors.
Anyway, I'm just puzzled by this and am confused on what this means. Any help would be appreciated. It also doesn't list the errors now unless I go into the action center and click on "Check for solutions".Thanks a lot

Last week I found my way here from answers.microsoft.com...cant-turn-on-action-center after unsatisfactory dealings with Dell and McAfee. At least I didn't have to pay McAfee NOT to solve my problem. Many hours and days later, first a thank you to all on this site who posted on the topic in mid-December and whose counsel was invaluable to me watching from the sidelines. That's now a closed forum and I need a little more help.

So far I've followed all of the good advice, ten steps worth, and removed Win32/Sirefef!cfg and Win 32/Sirefef.P along with a Rogue rootkit virus and minor mal/adware. My computer is running faster and better than it has in a long time. The only lingering problem is that I cannot recover Action Center which has been replaced by an also inop WSCS, neither of which can be turned back on again by any of many methods I've tried including turning System Restore off then on again and other fixes, none of which have solved this problem.

I have a line of code copied to my desktop to install in the Registry but I'm uncomfortable doing it (as it's well beyond my experience). That code to be saved in Notepad and merged with the .reg extension is: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ShellServiceObjects\{F56F6FDD-AA9D-4618-A949-C1B91AF43B1A}] "AutoStart"="" The explanation is that doing this will restore Action Center and all will be well!

Hi All. In a previous thread there was a fix to the above error code that involved running a dll command prompt. It worked for some but not for all. I was getting the code when trying to do a HP Update and it was related to updating the Active Support Library.

I found a simple fix. All you have to do is uninstall HP Update and reinstall it from HP's website. Here is the link where I found the info Re: SP41377 Error - HP Active Support Library Error - Other Notebook PC questions - HP Support Forum

NOTE: Reference the reply on the link above by "Sanchertx" He says to uninstall both HP Update and HP Active Support Library. The Support Library did not show up on my list, so all I did was uninstall UP Update and Reinstall it. It worked...YEAH.

Hello Bleeping Computer Community!

I have my netbook for a almost two years and this is the first time I've gotten trojans and all these extra popups. I've tried using Malwarebyte and IObit Security to clean some. Yesterday I had a bunch of popup from a antivirus action program that kept telling me my system has been infected with a trojan and it wouldn't allow me to open any programs or documents! So what I did was did a system restore which stop this action program. I don't see it anymore, but I wouldn't but too sure on that.

I've also been getting a subsystem spooler apps error saying it had encounter a problem and needs to be close. I can't print anymore. I think this is also because of any trojans I might have had.

I believe I've been getting these trojans because I started to download songs from mediashare and all other likewise site. This I will never do again.

Please guide me in helping me go back to the way it was before. Thank you in advance!

Hello!

On my main switchboard, I have a button that will open a form with a record supplied by an input box:

Private Sub Command16_Click()
Dim Msg As String
Dim Title As String
Msg = "Enter NCIR Number (XX-XXXX)."
Title = "OPEN NCIR"
DoCmd.OpenForm "TabbedForm", , , "[NCIR#]='" & Answer & "' "
Me.Visible = False
Else
Cancel = True
End If
End Sub

This works fine the first time. If I just close the form and open another one, it works fine. The problem is this. Once the form is open, there is another button to print the form. When clicked, this button opens a report. Once the report closes you return to the main switchboard. If you try to open a form again, the same one or any other record, the runtime error OpenForm cancelled pops up, and refers to the DoCmd line in the above code if you choose 'debug'. If you choose end, you are able to open the form again as you'd expect.

I do not believe this problem has always been occuring. I recently changed the form, and deleted some fields from the underlying table. I have noticed this problem since then.

Any ideas?

We are migrating from XP to Windows 7 and using USMT offline to migrate user settings etc.
Network printers are migrated but on the users first login if the user tries to set their default printer they receive the following error message:-

"Operation could not be completed (error 0x00000709) Double check the printer name and make sure that the printer is connected to the network."

The printer is in fact installed and it is possible to print a test print, just not set the default printer.

The issue is resolved by restarting the print spooler (or logging out and back in or rebooting or re-installing the printer) so is only

A:Printers "Operation could not be completed (error 0x00000709) Double check the printer name and make sure that the printer is connected to the network."

Hi,
According to the error message, I assume that the spooler service cannot find out the printer on the network.

You may set the startup type of Printer Spooler service to Manual or Delayed Start for a test.Juke Chou

Yesterday, my AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition stopped working. When I try to run the program I get a message saying some files are missing. I tried to "repair" it using the installer file but it didn't work. So I uninstalled it and tried to re-install the progarm. However I got this message

I uninstalled AVG Anti-Spyware without seeing if it was working or not. Now I can re-install it either

The recovery disks, burned right after the purchase of the machine and used before, were used and they ended the same way.

There are 3 partitions on the HDD.
Partition 0, 20GB. hidden, keeping the recovery OS.

Hi,

Having successfully performed a 3 hour chkdsk by means of a downloaded microsoft program which did this automatically, the screen is left hanging and there is no option available to exit from it. I tried switching off and then on again but this just puts me back to the start of the chdsk routine which then completes again. So I'm stuck in a loop from which I can't escape !! What do you recommend ?

Hello ,

here is a shot in the dark

turn your system on & then back off

them push your power button as if you wanted to start it and hold it for a count of 10

this will clear the compleat system of power and maybe reset way your system starts / you may want to reset the bios also by crossing the bios jumpers or just pulling the litheum battery from your mother board for at least 3 minutes

you may be looking at wipeing the driver & reinstalling

have you tried to get into the recovery console useing the Windows XP cd ?

Hello

I needed you to go all the way through the steps. We prefer a more comprehensive set of logs to assist in detecting any malware that may be present. As noted in the final step (Step 5) of our sticky topic (Updated!) IMPORTANT - Read This Before Posting A Log, download Deckard's System Scanner (DSS) to your Desktop.

What DSS will do:create a new System Restore point in Windows XP and Vista.
clean your Temporary Files, Downloaded Program Files, and Internet Cache Files, and also empty the Recycle Bin on all drives.
check some important areas of your system and produce a report for your analyst to review.
DSS automatically runs HijackThis for you, but it will also install and place a shortcut to HijackThis on your desktop if you do not already have HijackThis installed.

Note: You must be logged onto an account with administrator privileges.Close all applications and windows.
Double-click on dss.exe to run it, and follow the prompts.
When the scan is complete, two text files will open - main.txt <- this one will be maximized and extra.txt <-this one will be minimized
Copy (Ctrl+A then Ctrl+C) and paste (Ctrl+V) the contents of main.txt in your next reply.
To attach a file to a new post, simplyClick the[Manage Attachments] button under Additional Options > Attach Files on the post composition page, and

I did not get any replies so will try this again with updated info. Downloaded Microsoft Pocket PC 2002 October 2002 Update(EUU3) to computer but when tried to sync it to handheld got message: "Synchronization Cannot be Completed Successfully" and have not been able to sync since then. Same message and then disconnects. Have reinstalled Activesync twice..even going to older version. Have done disc cleanup and defrag. Have deleted recent programs including the EUU3. Also soft resert on handheld although problem developed in computer before could sync to there. There is no problem in connection of handheld with computer..just will not sync. Any help much appreciated as cannot download or sync any material to handheld(iPAQ3835) at all.

Hi everyone!

Ive just completed my upgrade from an MSI 745 Ulta mobo and ATI Radeon 7000 series 64meg AGP x4 graphics card to an Abit NF7-S mobo and ATI Radeon 9550 AGP x8 256meg graphics card and I gotta say, boy what a difference.

Now I have to save up my pennies to get myself a better processor, I have an AMD Athlon XP Pro 2000 and was wondering what i should replace it with?

There's a fair ammount of choice out there so i was wondering if anyone has any recomendations?

Nice speed jump!
Upgrading always starts with budjet. If you are going to keep your Mb , then simply buy the best (fastest) CPU you can afford at the time.If you are saving pennies you will probably be able to get the quickest cpu your mb can handle.

Finally got my gaming rig built and in perfect working order. Took me a while figure out how to put my two HDD into raid 0. One of the tech support guys at EVGA helped me out and said that HDDs have a hard time going into raid array if they have never been used, which was the case. I just installed some stuff on my two HDDs and reformatted the partition and BOOM it stopped giving me errors, LOL. Anywho here is the finished build:

Corsair 750TX Power Supply
Samsung DVD-RW w/ Lightscribe SATA
Liteon DVD-RW IDE
4 Scythe KAZE 120mm case fans (1 intake, 3 exhaust)
1 Stock Exaust Fan on HDDs

When I looked at the Case for the first time I couldn't believe how big it was, plenty of room to work in. The Scythe fans sound like a tornado when I first turn on the computer but it gets quite once the bios and PSU start regulating them and you can't notice it when playing games or listening to music. I bought a generic filter for the intake fan and realized that it wasn't needed because the case already comes with filters that you just slide off and wash.

This was my first build ever and I must say I'm quite pleased with the results. The bios defaulted the memory at 800mhz 1.9v so I bump... Read more

Hello,

Had the "Security Center" come up on this computer...got rid of it using the tutorials on this site, along with trying all the other suggestions for removing rootkits that may be causing the redirects. Some solutions seem to run their course, others don't. Still having issues: browser redirects, browsers stop working, MBAM errors, Start menu blank, "waiting for background programs to end" on shutdown.

So, not sure where to go from here. Help please.

Hi I just completed my second homebuild, I installed windows 7 pro and have been running it for over two weeks now, (got it pre release from msdna for free, thats right free, gotta love being a student, as many copies of 7, vista, xp and visual studio, and tons of other cool software for nada.)

anyway:
asus m4a78-e mobo
8gb (4x2gb) ddr3 ram
amd phenom II 945 3.0ghz quad core processor.
xfx hd 4850 1gb gddr3 gpu 256 bit with 512mb onboard already

sunbeam acb9 acrylic green led pc case (12 green leds, with 5 80mm green led fans, and custom fan grills.)
19" tft
650tx corsair psu
onboard sound and networking

it works great, so far I haven't seen the cpu go over 8% you through stuff at it it gives you a blank look and shrugs, it took a virus scan, dreamweaver, word and a few web pages (chrome) at 8% for god's sake. Anyway i'm very pleased with it.

BUT it only lists one hdd in the my computer section and that is the drive that i installed windows on, I don't know if the other one is formatted or not, I would say not, the bios recognises both of them, but my computer displays only one, i have not used raid in any form. Whats the solution?

Thanks alot, bob.

A:New build completed, but second hdd not recognised by os?

you shoud try this :
On "My Computer" Icon right click it and click MANAGE, click on DIsk Management..you may find your C: drive as Disc 0. Then look if you find drives that is unallocated..if you find it, click on the on it, right click and format the drive and click ok..just wait to make a 100% and you should after that it is healthy and formatted and you should the other drives now..try this tnx

Hello,

This is a follow-up to my original thread here -

http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...ease-help.html

I completed 1 RMA with HP and the teleplan service center guys sent me the machine back with the note - no issues found, reloaded OS. This time they loaded the OS with SATA controller as IDE as opposed to the default RAID setting that had come when I had purchased the system.

I let it run overnight hoping for the best but see the BSOD error in morning - I would really appreciate if somebody can pin point the issue so in the next RMA I can advise HP Teleplan guys about it - they seem to not spend great deal of time researching the issue but try to do a quick fix that obviously didn't work.

Your dumps indicate conflicts and memory corruption. Uninstall Symantec using this removal tool: Tool. Many third party security programs create conflicts with Win 7 and Norton is no exception. Norton was involved in one of the crashes. Download and install Microsoft Security Essentials. It will not cause conflicts. Make sure Windows firewall is turned on.

Uninstall or upgrade CyberLink. Its driver, 000.fcl, Fri Sep 26 09:11:22 2008, is out of date. Outdated drivers can and do cause conflicts and BSOD's.

I find another slightly out of date driver loaded on your system. Update this driver from the link provided.

usbfilter.sys Fri Apr 03 07:39:51 2009 - AMD USB Filter Driver (likely part of the chipset drivers). http://support.amd.com/us/Pages/AMDSupportHub.aspx. Update this driver.

Follow these suggestion, reboot and let's see if your system is more stable. Post back and let us know. If you get anohter BSOD, upload it and we will go from there.

A:New netbook setup not completed,

Hello, Thank you for posting in the HP Support forum. Is this re. Windows login ? You can't login to Windows? If yes, I have encounter such a problem once only but was with Win 8. Anyway - if this is a new computer you can revert the software back to factory default settings. Eventually you should create a local account (not login with Microsoft account). At the end, you can always migrate the local account to Microsoft account. If this is not re. Windows login, please provide back details.

I am using SQL Server 7.0.
I have databases DB1 (only current values) and DB2 (both current and old - keeps history). When I update (or insert), on DB1, a copy of the row I am working on has to be sent to DB2 using a trigger. What gets completed first? The update process on DB1 or the action started by the trigger? I am asking this because of what I found at this site:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/architec/8_ar_da_1tup.asp

…..
You can use the FOR clause to specify when a trigger is executed:
AFTER
The trigger executes after the statement that triggered it completes. If the statement fails with an error, such as a constraint violation or syntax error, the trigger is not executed. AFTER triggers cannot be specified for views, they can only be specified for tables. You can specify multiple AFTER triggers for each triggering action (INSERT, UPDATE, or DELETE). If you have multiple AFTER triggers for a table, you can use sp_settriggerorder to define which AFTER trigger fires first and which fires last. All other AFTER triggers besides the first and last fire in an undefined order which you cannot control.

AFTER is the default in SQL Server 2000. You could not specify AFTER or INSTEAD OF in SQL Server version 7.0 or earlier, all triggers in those versions operated as AFTER triggers.

…..

This statement sounds confusing?

A:Which is completed 1st? a transaction or a trigger?

Microsoft® SQL Server™ 2000 provides two primary mechanisms for enforcing business rules and data integrity: constraints and triggers. A trigger is a special type of stored procedure that automatically takes effect when the data in a specified table is modified. A trigger is invoked in response to an INSERT, UPDATE, or DELETE statement. A trigger can query other tables and can include complex Transact-SQL statements. The trigger and the statement that fires it are treated as a single transaction, which can be rolled back from within the trigger. If a severe error is detected (for example, insufficient disk space), the entire transaction automatically rolls back.
This means that the trigger completes before the transaction, you can rollback a transaction within a trigger as mentioned above so in your case the action started by the trigger completes before the update action.

- pop ups frequently open (then disabled via settings).
- mouse stops/blocks for a second while using it.

i downloaded combofix and let it run. everything seems worked correctly, but now i don't know how to proceed.
here below the log i got - integral copy&paste - now saved on desktop.
if i understood well, malware etc will be removed once combofix is uninstalled and i still have to uninstall it..

Let's see if these logs will show us anything:

The Temp folders should be cleaned out periodically as installation programs and hijack programs leave a lot of junk there. Download CleanUp! (Alternate Link if main link don't work) and install it. Do not run it yet.

Before doing anything, MAKE SURE that you can keep your computer on (at least until we get it fixed). This infection requires us to detect and remove it without rebooting or restarting your computer (unless the instructions say so). If you can't keep your computer on today, then I suggest that you don't get the logs yet until you are ready. With that said (when ready):

Open up HijackThis and go to Config->Misc Tools and check the first two boxes there. Now click on the Generate StartupList log button. Post that log in your next post.

Right click on this link and choose Save As...Save it to your Desktop. Make sure you have disabled any programs that may block/disable scripts (ex: Ad-Watch, TeaTimer, Norton, etc.). Double click on Silent Runners to run it. This will take a few minutes. It will create a file called Startup Programs followed by your computer name and current date. Open up that file and post all the contents here in your next post.

Download Find-qoologic. Unzip the files to your Desktop. Open the qoologic folder and run the qoologic.bat file. Wait a few minutes for it to finish. When the dos window disappears, go to your C: drive and open up the log.txt file. Copy and p... Read more

I recently had a virus and used HP recovery and now I don't have any sound. I originally posted this in the sound card forum and was instructed by deejay100six to go through the five steps of identifying a virus. I completed those steps and below is my Panda Scan results. I have the hijackthis results when ever you need them. I originally went through all of the basic steps to fixing the sound problem but nothing worked. Thanks again in advance.

Hello TSF -

Recently, i have had a problem with my system restore. After i attempt a restore, the computer reboots fine and acts as if it did the restore, but when i sign it, i get a messege saying system restore incomplete, or something along those lines. I decided to check the sr.inf file, right clicked and clicked install, but it said i need a windows XP sp3 cd, and i only have the original SP2 cd, not Sp3. Also i'm not sure if that will even fix the probem, has anyone else seen this problem? any help would be greatly appreciated!

-Thank you.

Hi

Looking for some help resolving this issue. Computer was acting strange. Scanned with Norton 360 and Malwarebytes and found nothing. Ran TDSSkiller, found and removed a rootkit. Now, when I try to  run Combofix, it stops at Stage 48. The hard drive light is solid, so I figured it would eventually complete, but it does not.

Can you help?

thanks

I had a problem with my yoga 700 11". The laptop freezes every so often (3-6 hours). At first I thought it's the drivers that need to be updated, then Windows 10 updates, then BIOS update.I tried all of that but the problem still persisted. I did the recovery reset but still the same... I created Linux system on USB flash drive and booted the laptop with it. Even under Linux the laptop was freezing.I contacted lenovo support team and they said the laptop needs to be repaired and they send me the return free postage vocher. I put my laptop in the original box and posted it as I was instructed (for some reason it was send to Germany). The company name that issued me with the postage slip was MEDION AG - A Lenovo CompanyAfter 13 days I got an email saying:"...After assessing your device, the repair center has deemed that a repair cannot be completed under the manufacturer?s warranty due the case of the device showing signs of inappropriate treatment. ..." There were two pdf documents attached to the email. one with the detailed photos of the damage ( see photo attached) and the other one, the cost estimate document. In the document I was given two options:1. accept the cost of repair (£54.65)2. not accept and the laptop would be return to me (I would be still charged fat price of £44.07)My reply was that I do not recall the laptop having this damage and I always looked after it.

I got my P50 a few weeks ago and yesterday its LCD went half black. OK, this happens.I turned it into authorized premium repair center and they got LCD replaced (as my P50 is under warranty). No big deal.However, they could not re-calibrate the new LCD screen because I do not run Windows on my P50 (running Kubuntu).It would not be a big deal either (the Panel Replacement Utility they have does not run on Linux, but I can live without that), however there is one worrying thing: by my request, they printed Lenove repair instructions for me where it is stated, that "Failing to run the Panel Replacement Utility program will require another LCD panel replacement". Please note "will require". My interpretation of this statement is that LCD will fail again unless I run this Panel Replacement Utility which requires Windows (not Linux version exists). Repair guys could not comment on that in either direction.REALLY????So, despite the fact that nor P50 user guide nor warranty description limit me from using non-Windows OS, the P50 cannot be repaired to be used in full capacity unless I use Windows.Do I miss anything? Is this an official position of Lenovo on non-Windows OS use on ThinkPad P50?

Not sure if this is the correct forum to post this in but..

Have installed Windows 8 64bit on three computers, all similar spec (amd a8 processors and gigabyte f2 motherboards with 8gig ram.)

Windows seems to be ok in every other respect other than I am getting an error in the metro store. When trying to install any app I get the error:

I have searched the internet for this error, and although I can find similar errors, I can see no one else having the error code with the same scrambled type.

We got around the error by signing in to a microsoft account, but then we are unable to create a pin for said account (the cursor just spins).

This happens on all three computers.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Have you tried copying & pasting the error code in Google ?

I find that helps.

EDIT--

Perhaps this phone number will help.
I've used it & got good help from Microsoft.

I've run CHKDSK on a couple of laptops today, and in each case, after hanging for ages around 10-11%, the laptop rebooted while my back was turned. (The process was run at boot and the internet was not connected at the time.)

Is there a way to check if the process completed and what it did?

There is a CBS log with today's date, with entries that correspond time-wise to the CHKDSK activity, but I don't understand them. At the end there are several entries like this:

Can anyone explain what this means please, and if I have a problem?

Coincidentally (or not) There are similar 'Failed to internally open....' entries in the CBS log from when I turned the laptop back on later in the morning.

A:How do I know if CHKDSK completed successfully?

Hi, check this tutorials CHKDSK - Check a Drive for Errors in Windows 8 and Check Disk (chkdsk) - Read Event Viewer Log - Windows 7 Help Forums to see if they will help you.

Good luck, werty

Dear Broni and All,

I have completed all steps, and ran the security programmes recommended in this thread:

http://www.techspot.com/community/topics/keep-getting-stupid-shopping-malware-installed.208648/

However, I am still getting pop-ups and adware related problems, which means that the underlying problem has not been resolved.
These are the programmes that I have run (today, 18/05/2015):
-RogueKiller
-Mbar
-AdwCleaner (it removed NickelBlock, AllCheeiaPPPriCe, DowwnSaave, SaVieNeewaApupoz)
-Junkware Remover
-Farbar Recovery Tool
-Farbar Security Scanner
-Security Check
-Tempfile Cleaner

I am currently running Sophos.
My laptop runs Windows 8.1, and Combofix does not support it.
The antivirus that I have is Kaspersky (I previously had Microsoft Security Essential), and Windows Defender. The malware was not detected by a Kaspersky and Spybot full scan a few days ago. However, on the 26th of April, I manually uninstalled some adware, and then ran full scans, which showed nothing.

As you can imagine, I don't think I have many options left, and formatting my laptop is a dreadful prospect. I was wondering if you could give me some advice.
I have kept all logs of the security programmes that I've run.

Thank you in advance, and looking forward to hearing from you.
