DAEMON Wierd Configuration Error

Q: DAEMON Wierd Configuration Error

Hey. Not sure where to post this problem so I just decided to put it in with games. I use a program called DAEMON to use virtual disk drives. Wierd thing is that the first two drives do not have a letter assoicated with them (E:, F and it won't save any changes I make on the main configuration options screen that sets a letter. They've worked before, but I just noticed now that they were gone. Any solution to this baffling mystery?

A: DAEMON Wierd Configuration Error

Have you tried setting the number of drives to zero and then back to two?

You might have to run in Windows XP Compatibility Mode, but since that is a virtual window - not sure if a virtual disk creator would work in it the realm.

Check to see if Daemon is compatible with 7

I have been using Daemon Tools Lite but recently I tried to update for some reason or another and now I get this error message on installation: "Internal setup error. Error code: 14. Contact support."

I have searched google and I'm not really finding anything, does anyone know how to solve this?


A:Daemon Tools Lite Error

Try removing it with Revo Uninstaller, under an Advanced scan.

Then reinstall it.

On a side note, Daemon Tools uses a driver, SPTD.sys, that is notorious for causing BSODs in Vista and 7 systems.

We have also seen it mess up in other ways, such as cause one person's computer to become so slow he couldn't use it.

You can switch to a different program now, or take your chances, and know to uninstall Daemon Tools if you ever have problems.

I recommend the alternatives MagicDisc or Virtual CloneDrive.

i have upgraded to windows 7 from vista
i had daemon tools installed when i was using vista but with windows 7 we all know that daemon tools doesn't fit.
now, everytime the windows starts up i see this message..
i tried to remove daemon tools but i couldn't due to another error msg
so what should i do to get rid of it?

A:error message about daemon tools


I had issues with daemon as well. I used virtual clone instead: SlySoft Virtual CloneDrive and so far it works great.

If you want to get rid of daemon but can't try booting into safe mode (F8 during boot) and try uninstlling it that way.

By the way, you can attach photos/screenshots/files using these forums and you don't need an external link. Jus look below where you normally write your thread message. There is an "Additional Options" section where you can add attachments.

A few seconds after I open Entourage, (my mail program - Mac 2008) an error message pops up that says: Database Daemon Fatal Error
Database Daemon has encountered an unknown error. The daemon will need to quit and Entourage may need to be force quit.

The little rainbow circle is spinning until I hit Okay in the message box and then Entourage quits.

This began yesterday when I decided to empty my deleted items which was in the several hundreds of messages. After a few minutes of emptying the trash, this message came up and since then I haven't been able to use use Entourage. I have shut down and restarted the computer a couple of times. I have a MacBook, OS 10.6.8.

Any help or advice would be truly appreciated!

A:Entourage Database Daemon Fatal Error msg

I think you might be able to use the "Time Machine" program that will allow you to revert your computer back to a previous state. I would give it a try. You would want to choose a point before you deleted all of these messages.

I never use a Mac, so it is hard for me to give specifics, but I will try.

I'm having trouble installing Daemon Tools Lite on my friend's PC. He was running it fine on build 7137x64 and now that I have gone ahead and done an Upgrade and tried reinstalling it, it says that it is doing the SPTD Setup "Installing please wait..." as it should. Then it asks you to restart, as normal. But after restarting, it does the same thing with the SPTD Setup and asks to restart.

I am currently using build 7201x86 on MY computer and am running it without any problems, then again I did do a clean install. Anyone else having this problem? Anyone else running 7201x64 that did a clean install that successfully got Daemon Tools Lite to work? (as this would rule out whether or not the Upgrade method had anything to do with it.) Thanks.

solution was found at Whoopsie with Visa>Vista upgrade - THE DAEMON TOOLS FORUM

A:Daemon Tools - build 7201x64 error

I had the same problem.

Just download the new version of SPTD driver 1.59 and instead of install/uninstall choose upgrade. Then restart your computer and try to install Daemon tools again.. it will work

DuplexSecure - Downloads

The other way to fix this problem is to uninstall SPTD drivers before updating Windows 7. Its more avoiding but it works

My kaspersky was about to expire and I couldn't renew it so I let it slide. A few days after it expired, a message window from kaspersky would pop up at start up. It said there was some errors that needed to be reported to Kaspersky, but it didn't respond, neither did Kaspersky. I tried everything to shut it down, but I couldn't terminate the avp.exe process from task manager so I couldn't think of any way to close the damn windows blocking my screen. So as kaspersky wasn't responding, it sure wouldn't be doing anything to protect my computer, so I uninstalled it till I could find a way to a install CD.

A couple days after I uninstalled it, Windows security popped up saying there were a couple of vyrus (which looked pretty serious and not some random trojans) on my computer and that there was no antivyrus protecting me blablabla. So I decided I'd google something to scan my computer, so I downloaded a Kaspersky trial. But as I was about to start the scan, my computer stopped responding - I couldn't click anywhere as everything was unresponsive. So I manually shut down the computer.

After that, my computer keeps rebooting itself after a Blue Screen error pops up... It asks me if I want to start on Safe Mode, so that's the only reason I can start this thread - I'm on safe mode. I also tried restoring the system back to a date before Kaspersky expired, but it didn't work.

Summing up, I'm guessing this is indeed being caused by a vyrus? If so, how can I fix it? And if it... Read more

Hello, im new to these forums and in need of help

Ive had my computer for many years, and have never seen this error,

im currently running windows xp, IE.

whenever i try downloading anything, i get this error when the download is finished,

"There is not enough free memory to run this program. Quit one or more programs, and then try again."

i am currently running with 512mb of ram
EDIT: sorry, and i currently have more then 22gb, of space left on my HD , which isnt obviously the problem.

A:Wierd Error ~need help

Having 22 GB of free hard drive space and 512 MB of RAM isn't what's causing the problem. What's likely causing the problem is having too many unnecessary programs running in the background.

Click Start - Run, type in MSCONFIG and then click OK - "Startup" tab. How many entries are listed there with a checkmark next to them?

This site can assist you in trimming down the startup list.

So I play a lot of games, and never had a problem like this. I'll be playing for a while, and my game will freeze for like 20-30 seconds, can't do anything, hear looping sounds, etc. It eventually unfreezes and sometimes, not all the time, my screen is full of artifacts, like all fuzzy and gets worse when i move windows and stuff around. Today, after it unfroze, it gave me a sound card driver error(first time that happened.). I cleaned out my case to find a wire that was blocking the cpu fan, I fixed that, figured that was my problem...well it is still happening. All my fans are working, and I've never had overheating problems before. Think I damaged my CPU from when it was being blocked from that wire? And I recently reformatted as well.

It's very likely that some other application you have installed put an older version of scrrun.dll on your system, causing this error. The version in %windir%\system32 should still be the correct one (it's a protected file, so it shouldn't have been overwritten), so you can probably just re-register it and all should be well. Type "regsvr32 scrrun.dll" from any command prompt. The version number on that file should be

Ran into an issue with one of my computers. Have no problem accessing a page on a government site that I access daily with one computer but on another computer hooked to the same router, I get an http error 404 "file or directory not found". Compared all my internet settings to the computer that works and everything is the same. Generally this is a link error from within the website but this is not the problem here as the one computer has no problem accessing the page. Have checked everything I can think of. Need suggestions.

Different ports on a router can be configured differently. Try the one that does not get to the site on the same router port that does. You may have to reset.

ThanX in advance for your time and help.

I have a laptop with Windows 2000 Professional on it.
It worked perfectly until today, when I got these two messages:

1) Virus Trojan under: C:WINNT\SYSTEM32\calsp.dll

2) "Hummingbird Jconfig Daemon
Exception creating server socket:
Windows Sockets error:10106:create
Possible cause: Jconfig Daemon is already running."

I got rid of the virus (with AVG Anti-virus) but still I get the second error message. Everything seems to work fine on the computer, besides I cannot connect to the Internet (ehernet cable high-speed connection). I get this second error in both cases: even if I start up the computer with the ethernet cable plugged in or not.

Note: the Hummingbird is not open whatsoever, so that is why I don't understand why: "Possible cause: Jconfig Daemon is already running."

Please, help me!!!

Whenever I startup for the day, my computer will get to the desktop and then restart. It happens at a lot of different times though: Immediately after the windows logo, 20 seconds into the desktop loading, 5 seconds into the desktop loading. Regardless, it does this only once, then the computer will boot up and run fine.

I've already tried cleaning up my registry, but maybe I don't know what to look for. I'm also hooked up to my TV through S-Video (using it as a monitor), But I don't have a monitor to test and see if that is a problem.

Any help is appreciated.

Weird messages have started to pop up when I either try to install an application or when I try to uninstall an application.

When I try to install an application it says, cannot activate serial number then says there was an error with your windows installer package error 1722, and half the time it says Error 1500: Another program is being installed. You must complete that installation before starting this one.

When I try to uninstall a program this comes up
Service "Program Name" could not be deleted. Verify that you have sufficient privileges to remove system services.

Every time these messages pop up before I can click "ok" a fatal error window comes up and the installer closes.

Also when im in a program and it tried to connect to update itself it errors out saying no internet connection, which I obviously do because im writing this...

I didnt touch any settings this just started happening randomly.
I also tried a system restore to a few days ago but the messages still pop up now even though they didnt a couple days ago.

I was using the internet last night, when, out of the blue (literally) XP presented me with a bluescreen (error in an atapi layer) and proceded to restart my computer.

Upon reboot the BIOS failed to regognise the exstence of my C drive (30Gb Fujitsu 5400 running WIN XP on NTFS) At this point i began a cold sweat and calmly jammed my finger in the reset swich. The Hard drive failed to regognise after four or five attempt so i switched it off.

About five minuted later i booted up and all was well. in windows i ran Norton AV 2002 full system scan and it found no errors (virus definitions updated on sat 25) Satisfied that this was a freak occurance i began playing Grand Theft Auto III (PC) and after 30-40mins of play the dam thing did it again.

I repeated the same thing again, but it wouldnt work. I have over 4Gb of info i really need to get back. Has my hard drive failed or is it a virus or Has windows got a serious error

Welcome to Seven Forums
Try drying it out for a couple of days - there's danger of something shorting if water is still on the keyboard and you continue using it.

Hi! I posted on the XP support sub forum, but they re-directed me here. Here's the link I'm hoping this is the right place to post now. Here's the info on the blue screen error I'm telling you about on the link: Stop: 0x00000024 (0x001902FE, 0xBACF7484, 0xBACF7180, 0x8A3E3889)

I ran the dds file as the sticky topic in this subforum tells me to and afterwards I ran the Gmer file, also as specified. But halfway through the scan another blue screen came up (too fast for me to read it), and the computer turned black, unresponsive. So I had to shut down the computer manually again... which means I can't finish the gmer scan. Why would that be? Here's the dds.txt log and the attach.txt is attached to this and not zipped with gmer because the scan didn't produce a report or anything else...

Let's try this version of gmer. We're going to try running it in a different fashion, also.

Download GMER Rootkit Scanner from here to your desktop. It will be a randomly named executable.Before scanning, make sure all other running programs are closed and no other actions like a scheduled antivirus scan will occur while the scan is being performed. Do not use your computer for anything else during the scan.
Double click the exe file.
The program will begin to run, and perform an initial scan. If possible rootkit activity is found, you will be asked if you would like to perform a full scan. Click No.
In any case, after the initial scan is complete, click on the Save button, and save the log file somewhere you can easily find it, such as your desktop, and attach it in reply

I have two pcs running vista. one uses home premium 32bit, the other 64bit ultimate. I am on my second HDD enclosure (one from Galaxy Metal, one from Acomdata).

Same problem on both pcs, both enclosures. Drivers tried from CD and download. I have searched all sorts of forums and find NO MENTION of the error message I have received (although there are lots of driver issues).

Can't use the Flash interface, must open cd folder. Difficult to open (several clicks). when it does, the install exe tries to begin and I receive the message:

The driver is only for Windows 98!

I really need to access this HDD. I don't know what to do. (No customer service from Galaxy. Have not tried Acomdata yet, but don't anticipate getting any from them either).

Hey guys, I'm a new member and I just joined today on a new PC and my laptop which is a Windows 7 Ultimate x32 one, had a problem. Here's how it goes:

I was trying to uninstall BitTorrent, TornTV, and SweetIM and an Apple Product(It's not a Mac) and then suddenly, my uninstall load time froze and I keep clicking X but it won't close, and then all of my other programs stopped working. IE was closed and Mozilla was not responding too well(It doesn't show up when you clicked the icon), so I decided to shut down the PC but I click on the Start icon and nothing happened so I forced shut it down by pressing the Power Button.

I opened it up and I thought everything is okay except my internet connection bar has a blue loading circle on it even though it says Internet Access. I clicked on Mozilla and after waiting for 3 minutes, nothing happened so I opened up IE, but it ended up just like Mozilla. I go to uninstall and attempted again to uninstall the BitTorrent and the other files but it becomes a Not Responding program so I closed it. I tried to System Restore but my Control Panel won't respond and keeps getting Not Responding message.

A few minutes later, I received a message saying " Failed to update PVGN(I forgot) client", so I start up my PC with Safe Mode and Command Prompt and used System Restore back 2 days for the incident and when I clicked on the programs it still doesn't work. None of the programs work at all.

Hello all,

I recently began to get these odd error messages at start-up, stating:

An exception occured while trying to run "C:/Windows/system32/dwcdll.dll, UMonitor.

Every time I restart my computer the ".dll" file is different, for example, at one start-up it would be "dwcdll.dll", at another it would be "pvgmod.dll" (as an example).

I think this may have something to do with spyware, but after running PestPatrol, Ad-aware and a couple other programs, I have yet to rid of this problem.

Let me start off by saying I am a technician. I have tried everything I can think of but I am baffled. So Im looking for some feedback on ideas.

Alright started working on this computer yesterday, basically a new computer but pulled the hard drive from an old one with customers data on it and did a repair install.

Replaced the case, mobo(asus p5gc-mx/1333), cpu (intel e2180), and memory with ddr2-667, basically just an upgrade job.

I did a repair install due to the sheer volume of data they had and the customer wanted the installed programs preserved... so here i am

When the installed finished its first part, copying files over then it reboots into windows to finish its thing, when it reboots, windows crashes immediately upon trying to reboot. Got an error message out of it claiming a 0x0000007e stop error with no driver notices attached.

Rebooted it into safe mode just to see, boots fine of course, then for some reason i tried enable vga mode and that boots fine too. That seemed very odd to me considering enable vga mode doesnt do anything but change the screen resolutions and settings to thier lowest values, based on my understanding anyway. It still uses the same videa driver as under normal mode...

So I flashed the bios, ran chkdsk in repair console, ran sfc under normal mode(with vga mode enabled)... nothin... still wont boot under the normal mode. Tried repairing windows again... still nothing, still crashing at boot.

A:wierd problem, stop error 0x0000007e (0x0000005, xxxxxxxxxx)

Hi Pat. . .

Welcome to TSF - XP Support.

A bug check of 0x0000007e = 0x7e = SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED and indicates that a system thread generated an exception that the error handler did not catch. For a 0x7e, we then look to the first parameter - 0xc0000005 (I believe that you missed the "c" after 0x in the title) - which means that the exception here is a memory address violation. Hardware issues aside, these are usually caused by a 3rd party driver that is bad.

I have only used the enable VGA mode 1 or 2x to see what it did, but under ideal conditions w/< 1 yr old Vista systems. So I am unaware of its full purpose.

What about A/V & Firewall? What programs/drivers were installed during/post XP install?

If you get the mini dumps, I'll take a look - c:\windows\minidumps. Also, I'd like a msinfo32 file saved in NFO format. Type msinfo32 where you normally type cmd if you did not already know this.

Zip all up and attach to your future post.

Can anyone tell me what's going on? Four days ago I became infected with a terrible virus. I did a reinstall. Evidently, I have imported something bad from Windows Old.

Today, I started getting popups advising me of status changes. The status always has to do with whatever I'm working on at the time. In the picture I've included in this post, there is a popup advising me that my status has been changed to 'diamond 1'. It just so happens that at the time of the popup, I was editing a picture of a diamond titled 'diamond 1'.

I've had this computer almost 5 years and have never been advised of my 'Status'. Is this a normal feature of Vista Premium? What does this mean?

A:[SOLVED] Wierd Wierd Wierd

Looks like that the status update is from google talk. The box looks like a notification. try exiting and see what happens

I just re-installed windows XP pro on my dell pc,and when i come to switch on the machine ,i get a message before startup saying invalid configuration information.
I have to wait and then it starts up. It has also reset the time and date.

The battery inside was fine before i wiped it-could it be the BIOS ?

Any help would be very welcome
Thank You

I have never seen something give an error message "code purple". Maybe it is a BIOS error message? Do you see that "code purple" as you boot the machine or would Windows start running and give you that error ?

Hi there guys.

One of my applications, Microsoft Flight Simulator X was working normally for awhile until I encountered a problem where it says the application could not start because its side by side configuration is incorrect. I cleaned everything up by doing "sfc /scannow" in Command Prompt and it solved the problem.

However, when I tried to open up Microsoft Flight Simulator for the second time, the error occurred again. Can I please help some advice on how to stop this re-occurring problem?

Hello there. I hope I have posted this message in the right area. This morning I fired up my pc to find an error greeting me. It was that windows was missing a configuration file. I rebooted a couple of times then it came back up.

Once it did tho, it went through reloading all my hardware. Everything was fine so I thought. I then realized there was no sound. Xp is showing the Realtek onboard sound card there, indicating under Audio Devices, Properties that "This device is working properly" and "Driver is enabled but has not been started". However, under the main Volume tab it shows "No Audio Device".

I have verified under Services that Windows Audio is started and running (set to 'Automatic'). I have attempted to remove and resintall the device, tried alternate drivers, all to no avail. Any suggestions or recommendations on how to proceed would be so greatly appreciated!

I'm on ADSL Zoom X3 modem connected to my PC with No other Router connected

when I used a bittorrent for the 1st time (Azureus), I got NAT error problems, this happened to everything I tried.
It tells me I have no remote access & icons stay on yellow?
I checked all the wizard configurations & whatnot, they all told me I have a NAT error

I just want to know if theres anything I can do? because when I switched to my AOL 56k connection, the NAT error was not present there
SO is my NAT messed up or not set up correctly???

I don't have a router so I can't open any ports only on it,
I'm only with my DSL modem, so I went to my DSL setup page

the screen had this info:

NAT : Enable
Mode: Dynamic

Session: blank (no other options listed but can be typed on)
User IP: blank (no other options listed but can be typed on)
Action: add (& another option for delete)

Number | Session | Name | User IP
# of NAT configurations: 0
I tried switching to disable NAT!
the description makes it seem like hackers can get to my IP & whatnot without it, but I tried anyways, BUT I could not connect to the net anymore after that, I had to re-enable it.

All I know on on Azureus is that in options it states 6881 as the incoming TCP listing port.
there is no Session or User IP info there to find & typing 6881 on User IP just tells me it's an inncorrect IP
can anyone help?

It has happened both for the new MSN (Im stuck using windows messenger) and Ableton Live 8.03

how to get rid of this error...

i tried to enter in BIOS... selected restore default settings... saved n exit... but still problem is there...

any help appreciated...


A:0662 Configuration Change Error

I work on several of these. Really bad design. Very crowded, no air circulation (heat) and underpowered (poor voltage=hard drive errors, system file corruption, etc...)
I assume you've tried this procedure:

If the settings do not "stick" I would do the following:

Reseat the RAM.
Remove CMOS battery, clear CMOS (test battery while it's out. If it's low, replace it.)
Try disconnecting all peripherals (hard drive and optical drive) and see if the problem changes or stays the same.
If you can't get the symptom to change at all, I'd try reflashing the BIOS as a last resort. The motherboard might be bad. Might be power supply. Those power supplies cost more than the whole box is worth. Is this your machine?

Any suggestions?


A:I have a configuration error that is preventing me from printing.

If you can still print from other applications but not Live Mail then it sounds like something's wrong with Live Mail accessing the printer. Maybe a re-installation of Live Mail is necessary.
My guess is if you provide more info on what exactly it is that keeps you from printing you'll get more feedback here.
Is there an error message? Or any other info to go by?
